'Behind the Candelabra' trailer

Posted on

Michael Douglas effortlessly playing the piano, Matt Damon yelling ”I don’t even have my own face!” and Rob Lowe looking like a shih tzu are just some of the fabulous things in this new full-length Behind the Candelabra trailer.

Douglas plays Liberace and Damon his younger lover Scott Thorson. The trailer hits the ups and downs of the couple’s relationship as shots of dramatic capes, luxurious bubble baths, and fancy cars quickly switch to yelling and glass throwing with the so-not-rhetorical line, ”Why would a grown man want to adopt another grown man?”

There’s also a lot about plastic surgery, which explains why Rob Lowe is almost unrecognizable.

The movie will air May 26 at 9 p.m. on HBO. Watch the trailer below:
