We felt totally teased by the recent Behind the Candelabra teaser, but the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly has us tickled pink.

Michael Douglas plays Liberace and Matt Damon portrays Scott Thorson, the unlikely lover of the late entertainer, in the Steven Soderbergh-directed HBO biopic, which will premiere May 26. In the new EW cover story — out Friday — the two stars discuss the movie, which EW describes as "one of the weirdest, glitziest gay love stories ever put on film."

“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,” says Damon of the preparation for his wearing tiny metallic thongs. Boxer briefs, eh? We knew it!

The pair also addresses the film's many sex scenes. “The scene where I’m behind him and going at him, we did that in one take,” says Damon. “We do it. Cut. There’s a long pause. And then you just hear Steven go, 'Well… I have no notes.'" So Damon's the top? We knew it!

Are you more excited than ever to see Behind the Candelabra?
