Oscar winner Whoopi Goldberg has been honoured for her Hollywood career at a New York fundraising gala.
The Ghost star was presented with the Marlon Brando Award at the 2009 Stella by Starlight Gala on Monday (19Oct09).
Goldberg, who was handed the prize by American Gangster star Ruby Dee, admits she was flattered to receive the accolade but would rather have her late friend Brando back by her side instead.
She says, "It (the award) was great just because of my relationship with Marlon, so it was nice.
"We spoke often and we talked a lot, and I'd much rather have him than the award. He was a good man. I didn't get to work with him but I hung out with him."
Hollywood icon Brando died in 2004 at the age of 80. The gala raised money for the Stella Adler Studio of Acting.
