    Michael Douglas has expressed his sympathy to his Behind the Candelabra co-star Matt Damon for having to present him with a charity award.

    Just days after Michael beat Matt to the Golden Globe for best actor in a TV movie or miniseries for the drama about Liberace, the Bourne Identity star honoured his friend at a glittering gala in Beverly Hills.

    Speaking on the red carpet before he collected the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Peace Award at the 2014 Unicef ball, Michael said: "It's feeling like quite a week, it's a plethora of riches.

    "My heart goes out to Matt Damon, if I'm not beating him to an award he's having to give me one. I love him, he's great, he's a great humanitarian so to be involved with Jerry Weintraub, our producer of Behind the Candelabra who won this award last year, and with Matt this is an honour and Unicef is a great organisation."

  • A report claims Harvey Weinstein is seeking Matt and Ben for a new film project:

    Harvey Weinstein hopes to reunite “Good Will Hunting” stars Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in a new movie, “A Speck in the Sea,” a real-life maritime survival story, Page Six has learned.

    Lobsterman John Aldridge, 45, fell into the Atlantic 40 miles off Montauk last July while the boat was on autopilot and his partner Anthony Sosinski was asleep. He used his rubber boots as flotation devices while lost for 12 hours at sea before he was rescued. Weinstein got the rights after the Paul Tough-penned story ran in the Times this month.
