1. On 7 May 2009, I had the opportunity of video filming Michael Douglas seated on the podium at the United Nations during the Nuclear Disarmament conference. He sounded very serious and to the point, as he has been doing the work for over 11 years, besides being a great Hollywood actor and producer !

    Are you are committed to nuclear disarmament ?

    The exact date was 7 May 2009, when UN Messenger of Peace Michael Douglas conveyed a new optimism on the goals of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) as part of a United Nations GSI panel "Voices of Experience."

Somehow, she also included this strange story of art and film communication of the actress ... Today, she is in New York moving from acting to directing "A Street Car Named Desire."
