Ben Stiller received an honour at the 26th Annual American Cinematheque event in Beverly Hills on Thursday for his contribution to film.

Along Came Polly co-star Jennifer Aniston, Laura Dern and Martin Short paid tribute to the comedy star.

He joked: "It is probably going to be painful for me to go through", adding the tribute would be "more roast-like".
