Ben Affleck has heaped praise on his pal Matt Damon and Michael Douglas for their performances in new movie Behind The Candelabra.

The movie is directed by Steven Soderbergh and relationship between Liberace and Scott Thorson.

And it seems that Affleck has already had a sneak peak of the film and he was full of praise for the movie itself as well as the performances.

Speaking to E! News the actor said: "Matt is amazing, Michael Douglas is amazing, so everybody's brilliant.

"It's so weird - you have all these preconceived ideas about, 'Oh, it's going to be this cheeky, gay movie about Liberace', and it's something... in a way it's funny, it's light, it's fun, but it's also quite resonant.

"It was cool - it's a good movie."

We haven't seen much of Affleck his film Argo triumphed at the Oscars earlier this year.

And the actor/director is set to take a little bit of time off as his wife Jennifer Garner has some movie projects in the pipeline.

However Runner, Runner will be hitting the big screen later this year as Affleck teams up with director Brad Furman and Gemma Arterton.

Runner, Runner is released 27th September.
