Julianne Moore - Julianne Moore Receives Hasty Pudding Award

Subscribe To:

Julianne Moore has joked she will keep drugs in her Harvard University Hasty Pudding Theatricals Woman of the Year award.

The 'Kids Are All Right' actress was presented with the Hasty Pudding pot by the theatrical group - America's oldest undergraduate Drama club - at a special ceremony yesterday (27.01.11), and joked to the watching audience she would use it to store her "weed", a slang term for marijuana.

She said: "What will I put in it? My weed. I'm just kidding!"

Traditionally, winners of the accolade - which is given to entertainers who have made a "lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment" - are taken on a parade through Harvard Square at the Massachusetts college, but Julianne was subjected to a series of skits with students portraying some of her famous co-stars, including Nicole Kidman, Jodie Foster and Mark Ruffalo.

When an aspiring actor dressed as her 'Boogie Nights' co-star Mark Wahlberg mocked Julianne for her Boston accent in '30 Rock', she jumped in to defend herself.

She said: "I didn't think it was that terrible. I work 'HAH-D!' I'm not gonna stay. My cah is pahked in the yahd! I'm wicked serious. (sic)"

Despite the group poking fun at some of her less successful movies, Julianne took the gags in good humour.

She said: "It's just nice to be made fun of. Then you know people are at least watching what you do.''

The 50-year-old actress was strongly tipped to receive an Oscar nomination for her role as a lesbian mother in 'The Kids Are Alright', and while her co-star Annette Bening is up for Best Actress, Julianne missed out.

But at the ceremony she joked: "I just feel bad for myself. I feel terrible. I love them all (her co-stars). I'm not over it yet . . . but I will be!"

Julianne also toured the university campus and enjoyed lunch with 20 Hasty Pudding producers and managers during her visit to the college.

As a graduate of nearby Boston University, the 'Single Man' star also reminisced about her own student days.

She recalled: "It was the first time I lived by myself. I learned how to take care of myself. I'm used to The Other Side of the river, but this is OK."
