Cannes, France, May 21 (EFE).- Michael Douglas wept here Tuesday as he recounted how director Steven Soderbergh waited for the Oscar-winning actor to recover from throat cancer so he could star as flamboyant pianist Liberace in "Behind the Candelabra."
"For me this ... it was right after my cancer. This beautiful gift was handed to me. I'm eternally grateful to Steven, Matt and Jerry," a tearful Douglas said, referring to Soderbergh, co-star Matt Damon and producer Jerry Weintraub.
The crowd of reporters covering the presentation applauded.
