Charlize Theron's alcoholic award

- 8 February 2008
Charlize Theron downed "74 shots" of alcohol before accepting her Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year award yesterday (07.02.08).
The Oscar-winning actress was forced to dance to disco music, show off her best modelling poses and flirt with a man dressed as an elephant to prove to Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals troupe she was a worthy Woman of the Year.
She laughed: "The only challenge today was trying to keep the amount of liquor down that they were feeding me. I did about 74 shots!"
Each year the troupe - America's oldest undergraduate drama group - choose a woman and man of the year, who they feel best exhibit role model qualities.
Awards spokesperson Talisa Friedman said: "She's done so many different projects, she has such a range. Charlize is someone we can look up to."
Charlize follows in the footsteps of Scarlett Johansson, Meryl Streep, Jodie Foster, Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan, Halle Berry, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who have all received the gold-coloured pot in honour of their achievements.
Christopher Walken will accept his Man of the Year award in a similar ceremony on February 15.
