Many dream of kissing Matt Damon, but Michael Douglas is one of the lucky few who has actually done it. But for him, it was simply part of the job.
"Once you get that first kiss in, you are comfortable," Douglas, who stars as pianist Liberace in HBO's Behind the Candelabra, tells New York magazine in its latest cover story (on newsstands May 13).
"Matt and I didn't rehearse the love scenes. We said, 'Well – we've read the script, haven't we?' "

Catherine Zeta-Jones is hardly facing her latest health battle alone.
The actress's husband of 12 years, Michael Douglas, is fully there for her as she enters treatment once again for her bipolar II disorder, friends say.
"He couldn't be more supportive, just like she is of him. They're solid," a friend tells PEOPLE.
The friend adds: "They're really, really devoted to each other."

Catherine Zeta-Jones is returning to treatment for her bipolar II disorder.
"Catherine has proactively checked into a health care facility," her rep, Cece Yorke, tells PEOPLE. "Previously Catherine has said that she is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner."
Meanwhile, a source tells PEOPLE that Zeta-Jones was planning to return to treatment as a way for doctors to monitor her medication. "There was no big problem," says a friend. "This was just a good time to do it. She is in between projects. This has always been part of the plan. She would manage her health. She is vigilant about it."

Following the Academy Awards on Sunday, Graydon Carter's Vanity Fair after-party at the Sunset Tower Hotel was the place to be.
Arriving shortly after 11 p.m., Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux relaxed at the Tower Bar where a jazz combo performed.
Aniston chatted with Molly Sims but Theroux was never far. The couple was inseparable, smiling and laughing as the night went on. Aniston looked like she was having a ball and so happy in her red Valentino gown.

We're soon going to be seeing more of Matt Damon – much more – in the Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra.
"Normally I'd say no to nudity, but I just did a lot of it playing the long-term partner of Liberace," Damon, 42, tells Playboy in its January/February issue, on newsstands Dec. 18. "I mean, it's tastefully done. … But this movie's not going to be for everyone."
How far does Damon push things? Consider this scene he shot with Michael Douglas, who plays the flamboyant entertainer in the HBO movie that airs next year.

Since going public with her bipolar II disorder diagnosis in 2011, Catherine Zeta-Jones has taken a little time to reflect.
"It's been an intense time, in good ways and bad," she says in the December issue of InStyle. "You find out who you really are and who you're married to. You find things inside yourself you never imagined were there."
As for being so forthcoming about her battle with depression, Zeta-Jones, 43, whose next movie Broken City is out in January, admits it hasn't been easy.

That's one lucky hand!
Michael Douglas took in a game of blackjack on Monday night at the Tropicana in Las Vegas.
"He was just having fun and fooling around passing time with other guests," an onlooker told PEOPLE.
Douglas's spot at the table might have been for more than just fun. The 67-year-old actor is slated to appear in Last Vegas, an upcoming film about four best friends in their 60's who decide to forgo retirement and throw a bachelor party in Las Vegas instead.
Douglas will star alongside Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. – Jennifer Garcia

One of the sunniest entertainers ever to come along, flamboyant pianist Wladziu Valentino Liberace – known simply as Liberace – may have had a dark side, but he kept it carefully concealed from his public.
That is bound to change next year when HBO airs the movie Behind the Candelabra, now filming with a cast-against-type Michael Douglas as the gilded showman and Matt Damon as his much-younger lover, Scott Thorson – who exposed his life with Lee in a tell-all book and also sued for $113 million in palimony.
"He thought his personal life was nobody's business," the real-life Thorson told PEOPLE in 1987, when Liberace, 67, died from AIDS.
