Neil Patrick Harris accepts Hasty Pudding Award in drag

By Elizabeth Learned,

Leave it to Neil Patrick Harris to know how to make an entrance. The How I Met Your Mother star took to the Harvard University stage on Friday to accept the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year award and not only did he dress in a tuxedo, but he also added some flare.

E! Online reports that with a bra over his tuxedo, Harris took to the stage wearing a wig, lingerie and red heels.

After receiving his award, which consisted of a gold pudding pot with a red velvet cupcake, Harris spoke to the crowd, saying, “This is fantastic. It’s been an unbelievable day.”

In his always impeccable humor, Harris continued his speech, saying, “I’ve had many types of pot in my hand, but this is by far the shiniest…I never went to college and thought you’d be super pompous and pretentious but I’ve had a great time!” He also claimed to be hungover, but it’s clear Harris had a fun time during his visit to accept his award.

According to People, Harris walked around for seven hours in heels in order to get ready to walk in them for the ceremony.

When Harris arrived at Harvard, he tweeted about his tour of Hasty Pudding headquarters.

Dame Helen Mirren was honored with the Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year award.
