Upon being introduced by Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, the stars of HBO’s Emmy-winning Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra,” Sir Elton John spoke both of the performer’s influence and his great dress sense.
Then he added, “What I was not aware of years later was his lifestyle.”
And then came the punch line: “Yeah right.”
Noting the longevity of Liberace’s career, John added, “What a difference those 25 years have made to people like me… and me.”
