Matt Damon has given fair warning: His butt and Brazilian spray tan will be on super-sized display at the premiere of Behind the Candelabra on Tuesday night at the film festival here.
"We'll see it on the biggest screen ever. It will be jarring," Damon cautioned Tuesday during a news conference for the film, to be shown on HBO starting Sunday (9 p.m. ET/PT). "This is not something you can un-see. So you're all welcome to look. But you cannot un-ring that bell. It will be seared into your memory."
"(But) my behind is very large in the frame," Damon said. "I'm really proud of that scene."
As Soderbergh, who has worked with Damon on six films, explained: "When Matt told me the story about his Brazilian spray tan, I felt the world really needed to see this. So I was looking for opportunities. And we found them."
Added the director: "Give the people what they want and they will show up."
Awkward Moments With Alicia: Matt Damon Matt: I've seen the screen here, my butt is going to be huge on it! But it's like Liberace said, "Too much of a good thing, is wonderful." Me: And too much of your butt?? Impossible. (then straight after the interview I heard Matt tell Steven Soderbergh this story, saying 'she said the funniest thing!') #cannes2013 #BehindTheCandelabra
I swear I have never thought Matt Damon has a big butt, he must hide it well.
LOL at R4.
Thanks. I really needed a good belly laugh today.
Wow. You can smell the stench of desperation all the way from The Riviera. How can we get people to pay attention for this boring cliche riddled turkey of a tv movie? Let's try to sell it based on a 2 second glimpse of Matt's ass. The homos will love it!
Yeah R7? It's been tipped to win the Palm d'Or and Best Actor for Michael Douglas. It's also a theatrical release in the rest of the world, something it couldn't get in the homophobic "land of the free" U.S. of A.

Well, if YOU say so then I must be wrong.
R7 = poor little retard
R5, as someone has mentioned here before, it's almost as if Damon has a clause in his contracts that his butt will not be shown. He covers it in long shirts or t-shirts. He's aware of comments about the size of his butt, having mentioned it in a Jay Leno interview.
The reviews out of Cannes have been really really good, but r7's far too busy making pronouncements on DL to actually read and junk.
All the reviews I've read have been pretty good. But at least your sense of self-awareness is spot on R9.
This is perhaps the lamest p.r. effort ever on DL.
R7, you must be enjoying the gnashing of (false) teeth you've caused among the geezers. Good work! I love this!
I'm just glad that Michael Douglas went back to smoking right after his throat cancer surgery and treatment, that his wife is locked up in a loony bin, and that Matt Damon is claimed to be yacking about his big fat flabby ass.
It's like coming home. And then coming at home. And then coming on a homo at home.
Should someone tell R16?
Linky stinky, R16.
I can't wait to watch Matt's sweet ass.
I don't know if this is what r16 meant to link to but here ya go.
