James Franco appearing in the Hasty Pudding Club's production of: MILK.
Isn't it about time we all had a damn good laugh? And what better way during these serious economic moments to do so at the expense of a hot, young Hollywood actor and actress? Well that's what happens every year when The Hasty Pudding Club at Harvard University selects their Man and Woman of the year.
Renee Zellweger accepts her humiliation, er .... award.
This year's auspicious recipients were James Franco and Renee Zellweger. The triumphant prize? Well, you are invited to Harvard, paraded through the streets in an open convertible in subfreezing weather, invited to a reception where your career and private life is lambasted and satirized, forced to don a costume (usually suggestive) and then participate in skits where you are further publicly humiliated by a bunch of boys in drag. Just what the Doctor ordered!
All in good fun, the recipients endure the production in true champ form before receiving their tin Pudding Pot Award and are never allowed to steal the show.
