Danny DeVito accepted the Zurich Film Festival’s Golden Icon Award for Michael Douglas, who’s undergoing treatment for throat cancer. Douglas’s film, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, was screened at the festival on Sunday. “Michael is so strong,” says DeVito, who costarred with Douglas in films like Romancing the Stone and The War of the Roses. “He gets better and better with every movie he makes. So that’s why I tell him to work more.”
