My words are fresh off Thursday’s red carpet event; Michael Douglas being honored by friends and colleagues with an AFI Life Achievement Award. Douglas is the 37th recipient to receive this “highest honor” given for a career in film. I wish I had more to write about tonight’s event, than list his movies and name the roles he's won Oscars for – “Wall Street,” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”
Oh wait, I can list the number of “colleagues” who showed up as well, sadly I can’t tell you what they said – they were only on the arrival lines, long enough for a photo-op.
Contrary to how I might sound, I am not bitter and I would be lying if I said no one talked to press. But I do wonder why all these celebrities show up to these red carpet events and don't talk to any of the media outlets. At one point in their careers, these “A-List” talents were all fresh faces, eager to get a few questions thrown their way and be a “Chatty Cathy,” but now that they’ve been in a few block bluster films and have a couple of golden statues on their mantle - does that make them too cool for us?
Back to the honoree and his celebratory moment, what’s your most memorable Michael Douglas role?
