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."

Traveling somewhere fun for spring break? If you find yourself passing through Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, you won’t be alone. That’s because Hartsfield-Jackson is the busiest airport in the world. In 2012, the Delta Airlines hub served over 95 million passengers. Bejing Capital Airport in China and London Heathrow in England were second and third, with about 82 million, and 70 million passengers respectively. While busy airports can have long security lines and congested air traffic, they also offer perks for travelers, like high end shopping and upscale travel lounges. When it comes to cargo, Memphis International Airport, home to FedEx, moved about 4 million metric tons of cargo in 2012. That’s just behind the 4.1 million metric tons that passed through Hong Kong’s airport, the busiest in the world. One reason Hong Kong tops the list is because the airport is less than 20 years old and has state of the art cargo facilities. But not all airports are as busy as they want to be. Last month, United Airlines announced that it would be dropping Cleveland Airport as a hub for financial reasons. Airports in Pittsburgh and St. Louis have also seen flight reductions over the last decade due to airline mergers. But the island of Barra in northern Scotland has a different reason for its slow air traffic: the airport uses a beach as a runway. It’s the only airport in the world with regularly scheduled flights to use a beach runway. There is often only one scheduled passenger flight a day, to Glasgow, and the time varies with the tide. Even though it’s hard to get to, Northern Scotland is very scenic…though maybe not for Spring Break 2014.
