Keith Richards has a new prize to add to his trophy cabinet.

The Rolling Stones star picked up the Brass Balls lifetime achievement gong from Robert De Niro at Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards in Los Angeles this weekend.

"I mean, I've had a few awards in my time," the rocker said backstage. "With the balls it's like where to put them? It's easy to pick them up but where are you going to put them? I've got to figure that out with the wife."

Justin Timberlake leered at his Friends With Benefits co-star Mila Kunis as she took the Holy Grail of Hot trophy, while his Bad Teacher co-star Cameron Diaz kicked off the show with a monologue.

Mark Wahlberg was named Guy of the Year and his Oscar-nominated film The Fighter took Guy Movie of the Year.

Meanwhile Sean Penn led a Fast Times at Ridgemont High reunion onstage, joined by Forest Whitaker, Judge Reinhold and other cast members.

Also attending was Mr. Popper's Penguins star Jim Carrey, who revealed he was "actually kind of a geek" when it came to awards ceremonies.

"It's half to just be creative and do some crazy, blow-out thing and half because I like seeing people that are in my business. Kind of cool."
