(ANI): Actress Whoopi Goldberg was recently honoured with the
Marlon Brando Award at the 2009 Stella by Starlight Gala for her
achievement in Hollywood.
The Ghost star celebrated remembering her late friend
and legendary actor after whom the award was titled.
"It (the award) was great just because of my relationship with
Marlon, so it was nice," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
She added: "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."
The gala that took place in New York was aimed to raise money
for the Stella Adler Studio of Acting.
