Spot of bub­bly for Dou­glas & Da­mon

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

To the Cap d’An­tibes Beach Ho­tel for con­ver­sa­tions with Matt Da­mon and Michael Dou­glas about their roles in Steven Soder­bergh’s Lib­er­ace flick Be­hind the Can­de­labra. We couldn’t find any­body else to vol­un­teer for the trip to a cabin sit­u­ated be­tween the bay and the world’s most posh sea­side ho­tel. So Reel News was forced to make the ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice.

Now, here’s some­thing that has never hap­pened be­fore. Mr Da­mon swept into the hold­ing area and de­manded that the as­sem­bled jour­nal­ists all join him in a glass of wine. Ste­wards in white coats were sum­moned. Sparkling bev­er­ages were dis­pensed. “Oh it’s all on HBO,” he joked as we toasted one an­other. But still . . . De­cent bloke. Michael Dou­glas stands a fine chance of tak­ing home the best ac­tor prize for his per­for­mance as the flam­boy­ant pi­anist. The Jury will be aware that, as Be­hind the Can­de­labra is made for TV, he will in­el­i­gi­ble for Os­cars.
