Matt Damon is “shaken” from Michael Douglas recent revelation that contracting HPV (human papillomavirus) from oral sex caused his throat cancer, reports the National Enquirer.

The supermarket tabloid claims Damon is worried that Douglas could have given him the virus during their kissing scenes in Behind the Candelabra.

Uh…

A so-called “Tinseltown studio executive” tells the mag, “There’s no delicate way to put it — did Michael’s enthusiastic open-mouthed kisses in their love scenes transmit the HPV virus to Matt?”

“That’s the embarrassing question everyone’s asking!” alleges the purported “insider.”

Everyone”? Really?

NO.

In fact, it’s safe to say that absolutely no one is asking that question.

HPV is a sexually transmitted disease — not a kissing disease.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s website, “You CANNOT get HPV from kissing on the mouth.”

The Enquirer is just crassly trying to create drama out of Douglas’ very personal revelation.
