Michael Douglas, a frequent participant at the Cannes Film Festival, will receive the Honorary Palme d’Or this year.

During the Opening Ceremony on May 16, the 78-year-old Hollywood celebrity will be presented with the highest honor in recognition of his illustrious career.

“Being at Cannes, which has long offered a wonderful platform for bold creators, artistic audacity, and excellence in storytelling, is always a breath of fresh air,” he remarked.

On May 14 and May 16, the festival will screen Amine Mesta’s documentary “Michael Douglas, The Prodigal Son” in honor of the iconic actor.

In order to demonstrate his distinction throughout his incredible career, Michael, an actor and producer like his father Kirk, had to embrace their similarity, according to the teaser. When your name is Douglas, that’s the ideal time to learn how to become Michael.

Tom Cruise, Forest Whitaker, Jodie Foster, and Bernardo Bertolucci had all received the highest award before Douglas.

The ‘Fatal Attraction’ actor continued, ‘From my first visit here in 1979 for The China Syndrome to my most recent premiere for Behind the Candelabra in 2013, the Festival has always reminded me that the magic of cinema is not just in what we see onscreen but in its capacity to affect people all over the world. It’s a pleasure to return to the Croisette to inaugurate the Festival after more than 50 years in the industry and to embrace our common, universal language of film.
