Scott Thorson, Liberace's former lover, cheers daring sex scenes between Matt Damon and Michael Douglas in Liberace biopic.

Liberace is the subject of the film Behind the Candelabra, which premiered last month in the United States on pay cable network HBO. The film is based on a book written by Thorson.

Damon plays Thorson in the film, while Douglas plays Liberace.

Appearing on cabler Current's Say Anything, Thorson, who was recently bailed out of jail by Dennis Hof, the owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, the infamous Nevada brothel, said that he was very “proud” of the film's faithfulness to his book.

“They followed Behind the Candelabra right to a tee, the book. It was based on a love story and I was very proud,” he told host Joy Behar.

“And what daring scenes, especially the sex scenes. … There was some hardcore sex scenes there,” Thorson said. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Hof explained that he came to Thorson's rescue because he's basically “a good guy.” Thorson was arrested in February on charges of identity theft and burglary for using stolen credit cards.
