‘Tyson’s’ Cannes party goes the distance

Mike Tyson intimidated by cameras on red carpet

Friday’s “Tyson” party at the Greenhouse didn’t get started until after midnight. ICM’s Jeff Berg and Cannes fest topper Thierry Fremaux cooled their heels for over an hour until the ex-heavyweight champion turned up well after 1:30 a.m. Saturday. Mike Tyson found the ovation for the movie “a big surprise,” he said. And as he walked up the red carpet, he said, “all the cameras were intimidating.” Hard to imagine. He’s a big guy with a Maori tattoo on his face.
