Catherine Zeta-Jones brought her singing and dancing persona from the hit film Chicago to the stage of Harvard University on Thursday as she accepted the annual Hasty Pudding Theatrical's Woman of the Year.

While the prestigious American institute of higher learning usually conjures images of more scholarly endeavours, Catherine took centre stage to belt out a tune from the Oscar-winning film, complete with special lyrics.

"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 referring to her 1999 role in the critically panned film The Haunting.

The annual awards are given to performers who have made a "lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment," by Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the US' oldest undergraduate drama troupe.

Catherine also tap danced in high heels before being presented with the gong - a brass pudding pot. The prestigious honour, she joked, ranked with "the ten hours I laboured to give birth to my children".

Husband Michael Douglas was also on hand, taking in the fun from a seat in the audience. The 60-year-old actor was crowned the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year in 1992. Actor Tim Robbins is scheduled to receive that honour this year, on February 17. Last year's recipients were Sandra Bullock and Robert Downey Jr.
