THE PIANIST star Adrien Brody put his Hawaiian holiday to good use on Friday (13JUN03) - when he accepted an award on behalf of Welsh actor ANTHONY HOPKINS.

The OSCAR-winning New York native - currently on the idyllic island of Maui with his girlfriend MICHELLE DUPONT - collected Hopkins' SILVERSWORD AWARD at the MAUI FILM FESTIVAL.

THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS star Hopkins, who was honoured for lifetime excellence in film, was unable to attend because of a family emergency.
