The incomparable Helen Mirren was awarded the Woman of the Year honors from Harvard's Hasty Pudding Theatricals troupe this week and accepted it in style.
The 68-year-old thespian delivered a terrific speech, gave some Miley Cyrus tongue action and fearlessly shook that THANG like it's her job. Or at least a fun hobby:
Mirren was selected earlier this month to receive the prized Pudding Pot (Neil Patrick Harris will be honored as Man of the Year next week) from the group.
The Hasty Pudding fellows also got to ask Helen some questions, including whom she thought would win in a fight, herself or fellow legend Meryl Streep.
"Meryl would win, definitely," Mirren demurred, graciously.
"She's bigger, stronger and mentally stronger than I am."
As for who would win in a Twerking contest, we'd have to see Meryl before we make that call. Here's some other celebrity competition for Mirren.
1. Kim Kardashian Twerk
Kim Kardashian knows how to shake that formidable a$$ in the pool, as she demonstrated on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
3. Kim Kardashian Twerking
She even tried it out in some sort of class setting. Everything she learned, Ray J taught her.
4. Nicki Minaj Twerking
The way Nicki Minaj moves that enviable backside and incorporates Lil Wayne into the routine takes skill, people.
7. Miley Cyrus VMA Twerk
A tongue-wagging Miley Cyrus grinds her lady parts onto Robin Thicke and shakes them feverishly in an unforgettable moment from the 2013 MTV VMAs.
8. Miley Cyrus Twerkin'
We have no idea what's going on with the onesie, but this was a harbinger of things to come for Miley.
17. Rihanna Twerk
There comes a point where Twerking stops being Twerking and morphs into raw sex with the air. This is probably that point.
19. Rihanna Twerking HARD
At least we know she could earn thousands a night as a stripper if this singing thing ever fails her.
