Paul Rudd awarded Man of the Year by Harvard

The 48-year-old Clueless and Ant-Man star Paul Rudd has been awarded 2018 Man of the Year by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals group.

A ceremony was conducted at the Massachusetts campus of Cambridge where Rudd was honoured by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals group.

As per the tradition, Rudd received kisses from male performers dressed in drag and was made to wear a bedazzled bra over his shirt.

Other past recipients include Chris Pratt, Neil Patrick Harris, Justin Timberlake, Robert Downey Jr. and Robin Williams.

Hasty Pudding in the recent years had been criticized for banning female performers from its productions.
