Gere crowned Hasty Pudding Man of the Year
Richard Gere and Halle Berry have been named the Hasty Pudding Man and Woman of the Year respectively.
The award from Hasty Pudding Theatricals is given annually to a man and woman to recognize lasting contributions. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Tim Robbins were honored last year by the group.
Unlike the Oscars and similar award shows, this is a considerably less-than-serious affair. Gere had to put on a dress and heels before he was allowed to collect his reward. It's a little silliness for an industry that often takes itself far too seriously, so kudos to Gere and Berry for showing up and having a little fun with the award...
