  • Matt discussed losing weight for Behind the Candelabra at EW:

    Matt Damon says he’s never been a big fan of wardrobe fittings — “I try to get in and get out and find comfortable shoes,” he laughs — but that changed when he was picking out his bejeweled jackets, skin-tight swimsuits, and thigh-revealing robes for Behind the Candelabra.

    In the Steven Soderbergh-directed movie, airing May 26 on HBO, Damon wears plenty of outrageous 70s and 80s-inspired outfits to play Scott Thorson, the much-younger lover of showbiz legend Liberace (Michael Douglas). And when the actor sat down with EW for this week’s cover story, he admitted that he got so excited about his wardrobe, he decided to slim down for the part.

    “I did maybe ten fittings with that would go on for hours,” says Damon. “I was losing weight because I was trying to make the clothes fall better. I’ve never been that guy. I was like, ‘No really, I’m just ruining this shirt. But in two weeks, it’s going to look great, I’m telling you!’”
