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.
