    The honor represents "where I came from, and where I am going and hopefully where I am at right now," he said.
    Guests included Angela Bassett and Whitaker's wife, Keisha, and three daughters, Autumn, Sonnet and True.
    The ceremony came the same week as the DVD release of "The Last King of Scotland," in which Whitaker portrays the despot under whose reign thousands of people were killed in the 1970s.
    Whitaker began his foray into films playing an athlete in 1982's big teen hit, "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," after a back injury ended his budding college-football career.
    He went on to star in such films as Clint Eastwood's Charlie Parker biopic "Bird," "The Crying Game" and as a hulking assassin in "Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai."

  11. Forest Whitaker's wife Keisha sparks concern after displaying her painfully thin figure

    Just seven years ago, Keisha Whitaker looked happy and healthy as she posed on the arm of her superstar husband.
    But it was an entirely different story as the 41-year-old joined her actor spouse at a series of A-list events this week.

    Wearing a sleeveless black gown, Keisha sparked concern with her painfully thin figure as she arrived for the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach on Saturday.

    Changing appearances: Keisha's figure is significantly different from how she looked back in 2007 (right)

    Keeping a tight grip of Forest, it was Keisha's worryingly slender arms that caused the most concern - with her upper arm looking even thinner than her elbow.

    According to, Keisha, who turns 42 this week, is estimated to have lost around 35lbs (two and a half stone) over the past few years.
    And such extreme weight loss at her age could lead to significant health problems, according to The Hampton's Diet author Dr. Fred Pescatore.


    Worrying: Keisha is estimated to have lost around 35lbs, or 2.5 stone, in weight, over the past seven years

    Health concerns: Keisha could be subjecting herself to 'premature ageing of the heart and bones', according to

    Dr Pescatore told Radar: 'She runs the risk of premature ageing of her heart and bones.

    'Most importantly, going up and down like this wreaks havoc on the metabolism and makes it increasingly difficult to continue to stay thin without more and more effort. Possibly to the point of starvation and pills.'
    Despite Keisha's weight loss, her tweets suggest that she doesn't hold back when it comes to what she eats.


    Thin: Keisha's fragile arms were clear to see when she greeted Rosario Dawson with a hug at the event


    Covering up: Keisha later hid her thin figure by wearing a black jacket over her long gown

    Junk food appears to be a popular choice for Keisha, with tweets including: 'Morning Morning Taco Tuesdays!!! Endless Possibilities…..' and 'a Pizza store in Burbank who took my order and didn't deliver don't worry(2 hours late) Micellis to the RESCUE and it will TASTE good!'
    Another similar tweet read: 'Snickers, Tacos and Fallon wow Sweet Dreams!!!'
    Forest and Keisha married in 1996 after meeting on the set of their movie Blown Away.

    They have two daughters together, Sonnet and True, while they are also parents to son Ocean and Autumn from previous relationships.

    MailOnline has contacted representatives for Keisha and Forest for comment.

  12. I hope she's getting the proper help she needs w/ whatever it is she's going through.
  13. :sad:
  14. She has looked like this for quite sometime. I remember seeing her as an occasional guest reporter on one of the entertainment shows. I don't know what is going on. But it looks to be very serious.
  15. This makes me sad. I hope she gets help.
