Director Steven Soderbergh spoke at length about Hollywood's early dismissal of his latest project, "Behind the Candelabra."
Earlier this month, Soderbergh revealed that his much-anticipated Liberace biopic, which stars Michael Douglas as the flamboyant piano legend and Matt Damon as his longtime lover Scott Thorson, had been deemed "too gay" by multiple movie studios despite an all-star cast.
Though he calls the less-than-enthusiastic response to his new movie "a surprise," he admits, "We weren't shy about the relationship." Joking that producer Jerry Weintraub has deemed the film "'La Cage aux Folles' on steroids," Soderbergh added, "It's pretty gay, but it's also pretty entertaining." »
