Photos, various
  • Photos of Lucy and Stella arriving in Cochstedt, Germany to visit Matt and being greeted by Matt's bodyguard are at Newscom.com and Corbis. Matt also arrived at the Cochstedt airport on Sunday following a weekend with George Clooney and Bill Murray in Lake Como. Photos of Matt leaving Lugarno airport in Switzerland and arriving in Cochstedt are at Just Jared, PopSugar, here and Zimbio. Photos from the set on Monday are at Brunopress.

  • A new interview with Michael Douglas is at New York magazine.

    “Once you get that first kiss in, you are comfortable,” Douglas said. “Matt and I didn’t rehearse the love scenes. We said, ‘Well—we’ve read the script, haven’t we?’”

    [Douglas] is close to an impressive array of the power elite—at his private screening of Behind the ­Candelabra, luminaries like Michael Bloomberg, Barbara Walters, and ­Maureen Dowd were in attendance. Douglas missed most of the evening—his watch stopped—and arrived as his guests were leaving. “Bloomberg called me later to say he loved the movie,” Douglas told me, “but he had to run off to a dinner for Kissinger.”

    The same week that Cameron Douglas lost his appeal for a lighter sentence, the chosen entries in the Cannes Film Festival were revealed. In an unusual and highly complimentary move, the festival put Behind the Candelabra in competition. Thierry Frémaux, the head of the festival, had been so impressed by the movie that he begged Soderbergh, who has said that the Liberace film would be the final movie he directs, to allow the film to have a prominent place in Cannes. As always, Douglas was calm about both the good and the bad news. He was unhappy but not surprised about ­Cameron’s jail term and proud but not surprised about Candelabra.

    Hello, guys!

    This is the first interview I saw of Elysium.
    Diego Luna talking about the movie, its meaning and how it was to work with Matt & Neil. It's in Spanish and I saw it two weeks ago, here in Argentina.

    -J: "How was the experience of working with Matt Damon?"
    -DL: ".. Awesome. He's the kind of person who is committed to his work not only emotionally, but also in a philosophical way. It was an enriching experience to work with someone that respects so much his profession"

    Re: Elysium

    Thanks for the comments. I've seen other recent interviews with Diego but he wasn't being asked questions directly about Matt.

    Quote, travel

    Thanks for the nice quote from Diego.

    I'm a bit confused. So did Matt and Lucy arrive together in Germany after Como? Did he go home or do you think Lucy met him in Como? Are the other girls also there?

    Re: Quote, travel

    Now I'm confused too. I thought that Lucy & Stella arrived at the Germany airport and met matt there. Les frenchies fans blog has a link to the same pics that state that matt arrived at the Germany airport with his family making it sound like Lucy and fam went to lake como. You do see matt leaving the plane with a toy and what looks like a girl backpack. Also the black suitcase hes carrying might be lucys. In the pics from friday hes carrying his black backpack which is what he usuall travels with. The other girls might be there just not pictured.

    Re: New trailer

    Hilarious line at the end. It looks like the last trailer featured Matt's part and this trailer features Douglas.

    It looks like the press junket for Behind the Candelabra starts tomorrow, probably in LA (with Matt in Berlin?)

    Re: Junket, reviewes

    I'm not understanding why matt was in Berlin. (Aren't they finished filming there?). It doesn't appear he filmed yesterday. According to an article over at clooney's open house George has a cathedral booked until the weekend for filming. Wonder if matt is needed for that. If so he'll miss the press junket but he should be in Cannes. But it would be strange to do a press junket without him.
    I wonder if Lucy and girls went back to ny. Although in that twit pic it looks like a young girl beside him. (Isabella?).
