Michael Douglas Tears Up at Cannes

The Oscar winner, who's receiving rave reviews for his performance as Liberace in HBO's movie "Behind the Candelabra," said he's particularly grateful for his career comeback. "Candelabra" was his first project following a battle with stage 4 throat cancer that nearly ended his life in 2010. He praised director Steven Soderbergh and co-star Matt Damon for putting the project on hold to give Douglas time to fully recuperate.
