Michael Douglas felt “comfortable” locking lips with Matt Damon for film Behind The Candelbra.
The actors had to share a smooch on screen for their new movie Behind The Candelbra.
But Michael was relaxed with his gay embrace despite the pair both having wives at home.
"Once you get that first kiss in, you are comfortable," he told New York magazine. "Matt and I didn't rehearse the love scenes. We said, 'Well – we've read the script, haven't we?' "
Michael is married to Catherine Zeta-Jones and has two children with the actress.
Matt has four children, including one stepchild, with wife Luciana.
He found it difficult performing love scenes at first because it’s a task everyone can relate to no matter how much research he has done on a part.
"The hardest thing ... is that everybody is a judge," he admitted. "I don't know the last time you murdered somebody or blew anyone's brains out, but everyone has had sex and probably this morning, which means everyone has an opinion on how it should be done."
