Halle Berry accepts Hasty Pudding award

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry nearly out-bawdied Harvard's bawdy Hasty Pudding group as they honored her as their 2006 Woman of the Year.

Berry grabbed her breast, someone else's crotch and soul kissed a member of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals during the tongue-in-cheek ceremony honoring her at the university's Agassiz Theatre Thursday, the Harvard Gazette reported.

Berry had to undergo a series of "tests" before being bestowed with the coveted Pudding Pot trophy, including writing repeatedly on a blackboard "I will not make 'Catwoman 2.'"

The actress who won her Oscar for "Monster's Ball" was a good sport throughout, although she claimed she never had to work so hard for an award.

"Any time you get to laugh at yourself, that's a memorable moment, and that's what I got to do today," Berry said.

The Hasty Pudding Man of the Year, Richard Gere, will undergo similar treatment when he receives his award Feb. 24.
