Stars visit Cuba as Benicio del Toro wins 'Che'-related award

Posted on

Actors Bill Murray, Robert Duvall and James Caan were some of the big Hollywood names to attend a special cermony in Havana on Thursday for fellow actor Benicio del Toro. The Hollywood Reporter says a guild of Cuban artists and writers presented del Toro with the International Tomas Gutierrez Alea Prize in honor of his portrayal of Ernesto “Che” Guevara in the Steven Soderbergh movie Che. The actors’ visit is considered a diplomatic exception to the long-standing U.S. trade embargo against the country, during which most Americans have been banned from visiting or doing business on the island.
