Michael Douglas has been a Hollywood mainstay since the '70s, but the actor doesn't feel as though he's received adequate praise for all of his hard work.
"Well, I've always felt a little underestimated, personally," Douglas explained in a recent interview with GQ magazine. "I've got a pretty good batting average over forty years. Sometimes maybe it looked easy."
But to be fair, the publication gave Douglas the high honor of Diva of the Year...which seems fairly fitting.
The A-lister received tons of critical acclaim for her heart-wrenching portrayal of Liberace in HBO's Behind the Candelabra and even earned an Emmy Award.
But getting the star-studded film to TV was no simple feat. Douglas shared that he's thrilled by the movie's success, especially after major studios turned the project down.
