In anticipation of the big HBO premiere of the Liberace/Scott Thorson biopic this Sunday, all the stars are talking. Now Debbie Reynolds, who plays an amazing (and we mean incredible!) version of Liberace's mother, Frances, has opened up to the press.

"I tell the story when Lee called me one night after work," Reynolds remembered, using Liberace's nickname. "I was at the Desert Inn, he was at the Hilton, and he said, 'Debbie, I'll pick you up after the show, and we'll take Tom Jones. It's his birthday.'"

"I have never had a better time than being Liberace's date," the 81-year-old Reynolds continued. "We all knew he was homosexual. That was a friend: You know what they love and the people that they love, and what they are."

She went on to say: "I don't want him to be remembered just for being homosexual...He should be remembered as a great entertainer and loved by so many. And this picture does do that."
