Hathaway named Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Oscar-nominated actress Anne Hathaway can add another honor to her list: a Hasty Pudding award.
Hathaway will receive the award at a roast scheduled for Jan. 23 by Hasty Pudding Theatricals at Harvard University, the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe. The roast, featuring the Harvard men in drag, takes place after a parade down Massachusetts Avenue near the university.
Hathaway made her name as a teen in “The Princess Diaries,” and has shown her acting range in comedies like “Get Smart,” and dramas such as “Brokeback Mountain.” She was nominated for an Academy Award for best actress in 2009 for her role in “Rachel Getting Married.”
Recent honorees have included Renee Zellweger, Charlize Theron and Scarlett Johansson.
