London, (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.
