woman of the year
Sang a lyrically altered tune from the musical ‘Chicago’

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Catherine Zeta-Jones sang a tune Thursday from the musical “Chicago” — with lyrics just for her — in earning her pudding pot and being crowned Hasty Pudding Theatrical’s Woman of the Year.

“Give me four more Oscars or I’ll make ’The Haunting 2.’ When you’re good to Catherine, Catherine’s good to you,” she sang with a smile. The actress appeared in “The Haunting” in 1999.

Zeta-Jones, who won an Oscar for her part in the film version of “Chicago,” also tap danced in high heels before being presented with the brass pudding pot — an honor that she joked ranked with “the 10 hours I labored to give birth to my children.”

“All the brilliance that congregates here at gorgeous Harvard. ... It’s nice to know that there’s not one ounce of class,” Zeta-Jones said.

Husband Michael Douglas arrived before the ceremony and watched the tomfoolery from the audience. He was crowned the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year in 1992.

The awards are given to performers who have made a “lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment,” by Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe.

Earlier, Zeta-Jones appeared on the steps of the Hasty Pudding Theater surrounded by cast members in drag. A traditional parade was canceled because of rain.

Zeta-Jones earned a best supporting actress Oscar for her role in “Chicago” and has starred in such films as “The Terminal,” “America’s Sweethearts” and “Intolerable Cruelty.”

Actor Tim Robbins is scheduled to be crowned Hasty Pudding Man of the Year on Feb. 17. Last year’s recipients were Sandra Bullock and Robert Downey Jr.
