Halle Berry had to write "I will not make Catwoman 2" on a chalkboard four times in order to earn her pudding pot as Harvard's Hasty Pudding woman of the year on Thursday.
The Hasty Pudding Award is bestowed annually by the Hasty Pudding Theatricals society at Harvard University to performers who have made "a lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment". The ceremony saw Berry receive a brass pudding pot from America's oldest college drama troupe.
Berry's performance in Catwoman, a critical flop, earned her the worst actress award at last year's Razzies, the spoof Oscars ceremony Hollywood's worst. The movie went on to win the worst picture, director and screenplay awards.
Berry, who was the first African American to win an Academy Award for Best Actress for 2002's Monster's Ball, acted out scenes from, the film and danced with "Dogman," a student dressed like a French poodle.
Richard Gere was named the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year and will be honoured next week.
