The Stars of 'Last Vegas' Have Fun — Lots of Fun

Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro and Kevin Kline share laughs about their lives — and what’s still ahead

Last Vegas (Art Streiber)

Guys Night Out: Kevin Kline, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro and Morgan Freeman. — Art Streiber

En español | Four esteemed actors. Six Academy Awards. A combined legacy of some of the most iconic films ever made: Raging Bull, Wall Street, The Shawshank Redemption, The Big Chill and so many more.

As Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline arrive one by one at a Manhattan photo studio to talk about Last Vegas, a hilarious new buddy movie that opens Nov. 1, the moment feels monumental. It's a little like watching Mount Rushmore take shape. But then the partying begins.

Movie Review: Is Last Vegas worth your time and money?

As AARP The Magazine's photo squad and writer get situated, chilled bottles of champagne come uncorked. Cucumber martinis are poured. The actors clink to long life, happiness and continued prosperity.

At one point Douglas, 69, and still drawing raves for his portrayal this year of Liberace in HBO's Behind the Candelabra, leads an impromptu sing-along of "My Girl." So what that it's barely 5 p.m. on a Tuesday? "When you get to this stage, you celebrate — period," says Freeman, 76, with that elegant baritone. "Doesn't matter if it's morning or night. Friend hands you a glass, you look him in the eye and say, 'Cheers.'"

Even for these Hollywood titans, hanging out together is clearly a special deal. Somehow, despite hundreds of individual movie, television and theater credits, they had never worked with one another until now. "What are the odds?" says Kline, the baby of the group at 65. "Michael, Morgan, Bobby …" They all call 70-year-old De Niro "Bobby." "We're not talking about one-hit sensations here."
