Chicago.. that's my kind of tune says actress

CATHERINE ZETA-JONES sang her own version of a tune from the musical Chicago after being crowned Harvard University’s 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," the Welsh star sang, referring to her 1999 film.

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 honour that she joked ranked with "the ten hours I laboured 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," she said. Husband Michael Douglas arrived before the ceremony in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and watched 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 United States’ oldest undergraduate drama troupe.

Zeta-Jones earned a best supporting actress Oscar for Chicago and has starred in films including The Terminal, America’s Sweethearts and Intolerable Cruelty.

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