Matt Damon`s ‘almost naked’ tanning sessions for Liberace biopic

Matt Damon`s ‘almost naked’ tanning sessions for Liberace biopic Los Angeles: Actor Matt Damon underwent extensive tanning to prepare for a few scenes for the film adaptation of book ‘Behind The Candelabra: My Life With Liberace’, which is based on life of famous painist and vocalist Liberace.

Damon plays Liberace`s gay lover Scott Thorson in the movie.

His love of boxer briefs left director Steven Soderbergh with a skin tone problem on the set, and Damon had to stand almost naked in his garage for intricate spray-tan sessions for the buttocks-baring scenes, reports dailystar.co.uk.

"We realised that because of all the bejewelled Speedos (I had to wear) I was going to need my tan line to go all the way up so it wouldn`t look weird. Every Sunday night this girl would come to my house, and I would stand in my garage and I would hike my boxer briefs up into the crack of my a** and she would give me a spray tan," Damon told Entertainment Weekly magazine.

"The first time this happened, I got up the next morning and took off my pyjamas, which had turned brown, I showered, and I`m brushing my teeth, and my wife walked into the bathroom and she screams, `What the f**k happened to your a**?` I was like, `What?` I turned around to the mirror and went... `Oh, fuuu...`

"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."
