Matt Damon has spoken out for the first time about rumours that himself and good friend Ben Affleck were once gay lovers.
In a candid interview with Playboy magazine, Matt made his feelings clear about the rumours and explained why he's never spoken about them before.
The actor explained, "I never denied those rumours because I didn't want to offend my friends who were gay – as if being gay were some kind of disease.
"It put me in a weird position in that sense. The whole thing was just gross."
Matt has just finished work on a Steven Soderbergh directed TV flick in which he plays Liberace's young lover Scott Thorson.
In Behind The Candelabra, Matt stars alongside Michael Douglas, who plays as the flamboyant pianist, and the pair are seen getting intimate in several scenes.
Matt said, "We both have a lot of gay friends and we were not going to screw this up or bulls*** it.
"It wasn't the most natural thing in the world to do, though. Like, for one scene, I had to come out of a pool, go over to Michael, straddle him on a chaise longue and start kissing him.
"And throughout the script, it's not like I kiss him just once. We drew it up like a football plan."

Claire Danes has won numerous acting awards for her portrayal of fictional CIA Agent Carrie Mathison on “Homeland,” but female spies are not merely the stuff of fiction. A 2012 article in Forbes shed light on the fact that many of the top spies in the CIA and the Israeli Intelligence Agency Mossad are women. The head of Mossad noted that women are typically better at multi-tasking, understanding complicated situations and suppressing their ego for the sake of accomplishing the mission. Not surprisingly, then, many of the best spies throughout history have been women. Belle Boyd was a Confederate spy during the U.S. Civil War who used her good looks and charm to get secrets out of Union soldiers, which she would pass along to Confederate officials. Boyd was later caught and arrested for her actions.Nancy Wake, in contrast, was an Allied World War II spy who successfully avoided capture. Wake was living in France before the war and helped establish secret communication lines between the British and French resistance fighters. By her own account she also once killed a German sentry with her bare hands. Other female spies have worked against U.S. interests. Elizabeth Bentley was an American sympathetic to Communist causes who spied for the Soviet Union during the 1930s and 40s, occasionally carrying microfilm of sensitive documents in her knitting bag. More recently, in 2010, Anna Chapman was arrested in New York City under suspicion that she was part of a Russian spy ring. She was later deported. No doubt, there are many other females spies out there right now. But you’ll need Carrie Mathison’s security clearance if you want their names.
