Hathaway had to "slay" someone dressed as a dragon and was made to sing
Actress Anne Hathaway has collected her Hasty Pudding woman of the year award in Massachusetts.
She was honoured with a street parade followed by playful mickey taking, after which she received her award from Harvard University men in drag.
Hathaway joins the list of past recipients which include Lauren Bacall, Katharine Hepburn and Meryl Streep.
The prize is handed out every year by Harvard's undergraduate drama troupe - a tradition dating back to 1795.
Hathaway also had to "slay" someone dressed as a dragon and was made to show she could sing.
After receiving her award, she gave her acceptance speech which she had written as a poem.

She said: "Please accept my heartfelt thanks and amazement that you have chosen my few humble offerings as celebrated entertainment.
"I will stand tall as I stand on this list, of hasty pudding honourees - you get the gist.
"Let us proceed with this day full of cheer - thank you for making me your Hasty Pudding this year."
Justin Timberlake is to receive the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year award on 5 February.
Last year, Bridget Jones's Diary actress Renee Zellweger donned a fat suit as she received her woman of the year award, while Spider-Man actor James Franco was named man of the year.
