Behind the Candelabra
  • Actor Paul Reiser talks about Behind the Candelabra at Front Row:

    FR: What was it like working with Matt Damon and Michael Douglas?
    Paul Reiser: You know what? It was very cool. I had a very small part and I only worked with them for a couple of days, but long enough to realize that those guys are really, really good. There’s a reason these guys are movie stars. They’re just terrific. It’s a very different movie, it’s a role you’ve never seen them be. Michael Douglas plays Liberace and Matt Damon is his pal, his paramour, and I play Matt’s lawyer. So it was just a couple of days of hanging around this conference room, doing legal stuff, and shooting the bull with these guys. Between them is a lot of great stories, and Dan Akroyd was in this room and those guys have stories. I could have done that for a month and just sat there. Even better than the Yankee stadium hot dog vendor. That was a good job.

  • Monuments Men is now filming in Germany. Jean Dujardin will be working for a total of 15 days in April, as reported at Clooneys Open House. Bob Balaban is updating his Twitter regularly from Berlin at this link.

  • Matt and Lucy are planning a wedding celebration in April, which marks the 10th anniversary of when they first met. The story was first reported at the New York Post and confirmed at People. Hollywood Life claims to have additional details. Newspapers in Argentina claim the celebration will be held there, while other 'insiders' claim it will be held in Miami. A video story from Splash with some new footage is at Yahoo.

    HollywoodLife makes an interesting point that so far, none of the other gossip sites have. Obviously also Lucy's wedding so many of her family is non-celebrity, I think it's safe to say that since they met and Lucy followed Matt on movie sets her old friends were a thing of the past and now she shares all of Matt's celebrity friends. What will be interesting to see (if they ever get the accurate wedding details) is how big of a crowd will Lucy's side of family/friends be.

    In fact, Matt also has 'non-celebrity' friends. I remember a story from a Boston paper about a trip to Boston Matt had taken after he met Lucy to introduce her to a group of his high school buddies, none of whom were famous. I've also seen Matt sitting with old friends at sporting events. Just because the press ignores them doesn't mean they're not there. Lucy herself sometimes gets left out of stories, which I'm sure she is perfectly OK with. Just because they're ignored by paps doesn't make them any less important to Matt.

    I'm pretty disgusted. Obviously they want to have a low-key party. Somebody can't close his mouth and everybody knows that because of the Internet! I hate paparazzi and the one who can't shut up.(I think I have the same idea that you about that, Paula.) There are a lot of speculations in tabloîd and I have the feeling that I'm looking through the keyhole. It's a party, and it's becoming a nightmare. There are "Save the date" invitations. Who talks about wedding? Please, let's them live in peace!(I talk about media, not for us!!)

    Lucy's father, interview

    An interview with Matt at Hemispheres Inflight magazine by David Carr has some info I haven't seen before:

    HEMISPHERES: But water has a bit of a marketing problem. Because it’s so abundant here, people can’t imagine how big a deal it is in sub-Saharan Africa. In terms of global issues, AIDS actually has more traction in the public consciousness.
    DAMON: Yeah, because everybody knows, or has known, somebody with AIDS. My wife’s father died of it. It touches people in a very personal way.

    Among folks who cover the famous, Damon is considered the gold standard: smart, funny, nice, always plays ball. This interview was no exception.

    HEMISPHERES: You received a career tribute the other night at the Gotham Awards. Is it really tribute time? How old are you?
    DAMON: I’m 42. I completely agree. I didn’t even know what to say to that. I’m trying to get a little $18 million movie out there, so I’m like, “Yeah, sure, I’ll go to the Gotham Awards.” It’s still a little weird. I thought, “Does this mean you’re telling me I can’t work anymore? Are you putting me out to pasture?”

    Re: Lucy's father, interview

    Very interesting and not jump to conclusions but could her dad have been a gay man? It's rare that a straight male contacts AIDS. I know Matt Damon never met Lucy's father because in much earlier interviews he has said how he and Lucy were both raised by single moms.

    Re: Lucy's father, interview

    It's not that rare (about 32%), but I really don't want anyone to speculate here. We don't know the facts.

    Re: secret

    Have you seen anything in print from Matt, or seen an interview? I haven't seen anything and I would have thought the press would have picked up on it if he said something publicly.

    Re: secret

    Matt hasn't made any statements. The press are speculating based on some rumors or comments supposedly made last weekend by others.

    He would likely be upset that the news has been revealed by someone and that it is no longer private.

    Behind the Candelabra

    HBO has set a date for Behind the Candelabra - 26 May. There's also a new teaser, but no footage yet. A trailer should be released later this month.

    Matt flew to Berlin today.

    That Liberace teaser is so fantastic that it makes me wonder if Soderbergh made it. There's an article is the Boston Globe that says Matt's humorous press conference has been viewed 845,000 times.
    From: (Anonymous) Date: March 4th, 2013 02:57 pm (UTC) (Link)

    Globe article

    That article in the Globe notes Matt's success at getting youtube views but also questions the efficacy of water.org. It's sloppy reporting at its worst. Water.org needs to aggressively respond to that article, imo. What they have managed to do with youtube stars is unprecedented in terms or public relations, and an article like that could undo a lot of what they have accomplished.

    Maybe this isn't the rfght place to say this, but I ink it's very important, and maybe somebody connected with Matt looks at this site occasionally.

    And ain't it strange that article should come out the very DAY that Matt leaves the country?!
