In the movie, Michael plays the legendary performer and Matt as his young lover Scott Thorson.

Reports said when a scene required both actors to lock lips, Matt closed his eyes and imagined he was kissing Michael’s wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones. The latter in an interview said she was “extremely flattered.”

That comment made social media users crack some jokes on the couple including one that says “...when she kisses Michael, Catherine imagines he is Matt.”
