The Fatal Attraction star, 64, was handed the prestigious Donostia Lifetime Achievement Award on the closing day of the San Sebastian International Film Festival for her long-running movie career which has spanned four decades.
Close was given the prize by her film director friend Rodrigo Garcia and during her speech, she vowed to continue acting for as long as she can.
She said, ""This is the first lifetime achievement award I've ever received. And what I am thinking of is the army of people I have collaborated with over the course of my career. They have inspired me. Challenged me... Everyone wants to believe something.
""And we can remind people how connected we are. That, to me, is a privilege. I pledge to continue to find stories that I hope you will love and characters that you can find a common thread of humanity with.""
