Michael Douglas and Matt Damon's unusual new look

Sunday March 10, 2013

Michael Douglas and Matt Damon have cause a stir with their bold new look for movie Behind the Candelabra.

The acting duo posed for Entertainment Weekly, decked in jewels, dressed in white studded suits, prosthetics, makeup and dashing wigs, to promote their latest screen venture.

The new TV movie, which airs in the US on May 26, see Michael, 68, take on the role of flamboyant entertainer Liberace, while Matt, 42, plays his younger lover, Scott Thorson.

In the magazine the pair talk openly about their on-screen roles in Steven Soderbergh's latest directing venture, discussing the bizarre and glamorous relationship Liberace and Scott enjoyed from 1978 to 1982 and what it took to get into character.

Matt braces the question of spray tans, explaining how he wished his wife, Luciana Barroso, hadn't had to witness his weekly tanning sessions.

"We've been through three childbirths, we've been in the trenches, there are no secrets. But I really wish she didn't see that. That's too much."
