Gere and Berry Flavors Hasty Pudding


Richard Gere and Halle Berry are the new flavors of Hasty Pudding

Richard Gere and Halle Berry are this year's recipients of the annual Hasty Pudding Awards, given by a student drama group at Harvard University. The awards are given to performers who have made a "lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment," by Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation's oldest undergraduate drama troupe.

Berry will lead a parade through the streets of Harvard Square on February 16, with students dressed in drag. Berry will soon be seen in the reprisal of her role as Storm in "X3," the third installment in the "X-Men" series, due May 26.

Berry, 39, won an Oscar and a SAG award for her riveting performance in "Monster's Ball" starring opposite Billy Bob Thornton. She also earned an Emmy for her performance in the HBO film "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge."

Gere, 56, won a Golden Globe for Best Comedy/Musical Actor for his portrayal of Billy Flynn in "Chicago." His other work includes "An Officer and a Gentleman," "American Gigolo," "Internal Affairs" and "Pretty Woman."

Gere is also the founder of the Gere Foundation, which contributes to health education and human rights projects and is dedicated to promoting awareness of Tibet's endangered culture. Last year's Hasty Pudding recipients were Catherine Zeta-Jones and Tim Robbins.
