Michael Douglas is making the glittery-caped rounds, promoting the forthcoming Liberace biopic "Behind the Candelabra" and dishing on everything from smooching Matt Damon to his troubled son, Cameron.
"Once you get that first kiss in, you are comfortable. Matt and I didn't rehearse the love scenes," Douglas tells New York magazine.
Damon plays Scott Thorson, Liberace's drug-addled young lover, who underwent several plastic surgeries to resemble the showman.
"The hardest thing about sex scenes is that everybody is a judge. 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," Douglas surmises.
"Which means everyone has an opinion on how it should be done."

We love "Mad Men" for its philandering gents and sultry ladies, but sometimes you have to hear it for the matriarchs in the period drama.
Fictional moms both new and old are featured in the show's sixth season, and we parsed out the family affairs to expect come April 7's premiere. First things first: The newest Bobby Draper has some high praise for January Jones.
Now the middle child of Jones's Betty and Jon Hamm's Don, young actor Mason Vale Cotton is singing a different tune from the actor (Jared Gilmore, "Once Upon a Time") that last played his part -- one who said January wasn't as friendly as the other cast members.
"January is really nice," little Cotton told us at Wednesday's premiere. "She's really helpful with scenes and talks with me."

Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has her origins in television, as a writer for "Dexter" before she was hired to adapt the "Twlight Saga."
The vampire phenomenon having finally come to an end in 2012, Rosenberg returns to the small screen with an eight-episode offering for ABC: "Red Widow."
Radha Mitchell (Woody Allen's "Melinda and Melinda") stars as a housewife forced to take over her husband's life of crime to protect her family.
Sound like dark matter? Not these days at ABC. The network is home to Emily Thorne, the single-minded warrior of "Revenge." Also to Olivia Pope, the crafty crisis manager who rigs elections and fends off terrorism on a good day in "Scandal."

Mitchell's Marta Walraven is equally murky, and ass-kicking to boot.
"It’s a network and an audience that really digs into female characters, that can relate," Rosenberg said Tuesday at a Los Angeles reception for the show.
