Actor Michael Douglas thanked his
Behind The Candelabra co-star Matt Damon in accepting UK gay
glossy Attitude's Attitude Film Award.
In the film, Douglas plays flamboyant
pianist Liberace, while Damon plays Scott Thorson, Liberace's alleged
English pop rock group McFly presented
Douglas with the award during a ceremony last week at the Royal
Courts of Justice.
“I really want to thank Attitude
magazine for this wonderful award here,” Douglas, holding his metal
“a” award, said in his videotaped acceptance speech. “And I'm
very sorry I can't be with you at the Royal Court this evening, but
I'm going to be out in New Mexico shooting another film.”
“My performance couldn't even have
come close if it wasn't for Matt Damon. Matt is a pistol. And I'm
proud of him. And he showed tremendous courage. Someone in the
prime of his career. And I do know what favorite lip gloss he like,”
Douglas said with a smile. (The video is embedded on this page.
