Matt Damon and Michael Douglas took the stage at the HBO Winter 2013 TCA Panel yesterday in Pasadena. Michael and Matt, who co-star in HBO's upcoming Behind the Candelabra, were at the Langham Hotel with producer Jerry Weintraub and director Steven Soderbergh to chat up their Liberace bio-pic. The TV film is based on the story of Liberace, portrayed by Michael, and his five year relationship with the much younger Scott Thorson, played by Matt. The gang spoke about the project yesterday at the TCA, and about their struggles to make the project as accurate as possible because it was based on the stories of real people.

Matt said about the Liberace film, "There are aspects of their relationship that were absurd, but for me it just kind of pointed out that there are aspects of all of our lives that are absurd . . . What it felt like was if this was a relationship between a man and a woman, you’d feel moments like, 'This is too intimate, maybe I shouldn’t be here.' But it’s between a man and a man and I’ve never seen that movie before. So it was fun, but we weren’t giggling about it. We took it very seriously. These are people’s lives and we wanted to get it right."
