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.”
