Michael Douglas Glorified1 in Their Remarks

Danny DeVito

Hello, hello everybody!

It’s really great to see a couple of you!

Uh, I’ve known Michael Douglas longer than some men’s wives have been alive. Back in Manhattan he was a struggling actor, he was always a real 1)“nose to the grindstone,” kind of guy. I mean really a 2)workaholic. I mean you may ask what drives a man? What drove him so to, uh, achieve his goals, so passionately2 achieve his goals? I can sum this up into one word, Kirk!

Kirk received 3)the Cecil B. DeMille Award in 1968, unfortunately Michael and I, we missed that presentation, because we were out in the deep woods 4)foraging3 for mushroom. Those were budding days; we were building our careers brick by brick.

Michael pursued his passions and 5)honed his skills, sometimes working into the 6)wee hours of the morning, and back then a lot of his friends didn’t know whether he was going to become an actor or going to be a 7)gynecologist, but we’re, we’re very happy that he chose both.

Michael’s performance in this next film earned him the Golden Globe and the Oscar, the Best Actor and turned greed into a 8)four-letter word.

(In the movie “Wall Street”)
Michael: (Greed) for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the evolutionary4 spirit. Greed, in all of its forms, greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge, has marked the upward 9)surge of mankind, and greed, you mark my words, will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other 10)malfunctioning corporation called the U.S.A..

Next Michael falls for his prime suspect Sharon Stone. Here’s another friend of Michael’s soon to be seen in Cat Woman, please welcome Sharon Stone.

Sharon Stone

I’d only made a handful of films when I was cast opposite Michael in Basic Instinct, but from the very first day I walked on the set, he gave me the green light to 11)sink my teeth into the part and to create. His courage and generosity6 are evident in all of his work. Michael, my role in Basic Instinct changed my life and for that I’m truly in your debt.  

I don’t know of another actor so confident and so truly unafraid to let his fellow actors shine and in doing so, Michael Douglas has given us some of the screen’s most memorable7 performances. It is evident by his career choices and in all the humanitarian8 causes that he has 12)spearheaded that Michael loves what he does.

Danny: Michael did a picture a few years back called,  A Chorus Line. Although he didn’t sing in this film, thank God, there was a song from the production that sums up Michael’s career in a nutshell, “What I did for love. ”

Sharon: Ladies and Gentlemen, Michael Douglas.

Michael Douglas

Thank you, thank you very much, Sharon, and Danny you were a great roommate. It’s impossible to thank all of the wonderful 13)crew members, all the great directors that pushed me, uh, the writers that made you funny sometimes, that made you smart and the other actors that you’d do a scene with sometimes you felt like you really shine but I’m grateful to all of them and of course to have this doesn’t mean anything unless you can share it with somebody and so, Catherine (waving to his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones), I never thought this would be here with you, but I am so happy to share this with you, and thank you all for this opportunity. I appreciate it. Thank you.

6) wee hours of the morning 凌晨
7) gynecologist [7^aini5kClEdVist] n. 妇科医生,这里德维托是拿道格拉斯“花花公子”的名声开玩笑

迈克尔:找不到更好的词了,(贪婪)有益。贪婪有理,贪婪有用,贪婪阐明、穿透、抓住了进化精神的实质。所有形式的贪婪: 为生活而贪,为财而贪,为爱而贪,为学问而贪,标示了人类的发展潮流;贪婪,你们记住我的话,将不仅会拯救TELDAR纸厂,还会拯救经营不善的叫做“美利坚合众国”的企业。
