Garcia Receives Lifetime Award
Hollywood actor Andy Garcia was moved to tears when he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Karlovy Vary Firm Festival in the Czech Republic. The OCEAN'S THIRTEEN star was honoured at the black-tie event on Friday night (30JUN06) with a Crystal Globe for Outstanding Artistic Contribution to World Cinema. After the emotional ceremony the Cuban-born star, who escaped to America aged five when the Marxist regime of Fidel Castro came into power, reminisced about his homeland and admitted people there were still "suffering", reports PageSix.com. He also criticised the cult that has built up around CHE GUEVERA, noting the Argentine revolutionary "was responsible for the execution of many people".
