Michael Douglas and Matt Damon wow the Cannes film fest as Liberace and lover.
Kate cast as evil wife by husband

Kate Beckinsale has admitted she would have been offended if husband Len Wiseman had asked her personally to play an evil wife in his new film Total Recall.
The couple were joined on the red carpet by co-stars Jessica Biel, Colin Farrell and Bill Nighy at the premiere of the sci-fi action film directed by Len at the Vue cinema in London's Leicester Square.
Kate plays Colin's beautiful wife, who turns out to be a villainous spy.
She said: "Luckily I just got sent the script from the studio and I read it. So I didn't have to hear him say 'I'm thinking of this psychotic evil wife and I'm thinking of you'. But I'd have probably been offended."
Jessica wore a daring white Giambattista Valli white dress and pink shoes while Kate wore a black Donna Karan gown.
Jessica, who plays a rebel fighter, said: "Fighting Kate was so much fun. Really nerve-wracking of course, because her husband's behind the monitor making sure I don't accidentally punch his wife in the face. And I didn't, luckily, and it was all good and we had a really fun time."
The film is not a remake of the 1990 film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone, but a reimagining of Philip K Dick's science fiction short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale.
Colin plays Douglas Quaid, a factory worker who, plagued by strange dreams, visits a company that promises to turn dreams into real memories. But the process goes wrong when he learns he is an undercover spy and finds himself on the run for crimes he has no memory of committing.
Total Recall opens in cinemas on Wednesday August 29.
