Want to swim in the fabulous pool and hang out in the Jacuzzi featured in HBO’s smash Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra?
Just make friends with Prince Frederic Von Anhalt.
Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband tells RumorFix the production used the couple’s pool for scenes between Michael Douglas’ Liberace character and Matt Damon’s role as his younger lover. They also shot inside the iconic Beverly Hills mansion including those sexy Jacuzzi scenes.
Prince Frederic also says the production company redecorated the entire pool area for the scenes as well as some of the interiors. And the Prince liked the new décor so much, he kept it! “It’s like you’re still on the set” he tells us.
“I left everything, I didn’t change the house cause it was so wonderfully done, so crazy, the way he lived. Everything they have in the movie I kept. I didn’t change it.”
The actors also stayed at their mansion while filming, utilizing private upstairs quarters instead of movie trailers.
The prince even recalled one day when Michael Douglas paid a visit to Zsa Zsa. The 94-year-old is still bedridden at the residence, but Douglas came in to say hello while still dressed in his Liberace costume. Zsa Zsa and Liberace were friends so it must have been quite a shock to see Douglas’ amazing Liberace likeness at her bedside.
