American actress Jennifer Garner (49) has been celebrated by the venerable Harvard University’s theater troupe as “Woman of the Year”.
According to American media, the traditional parade on Harvard Square in Cambridge (Massachusetts) took place on Saturday in a cold winter. The footage showed a beaming Garner (“30 Over Night,” “Alias - The Agent”) in a coat and mittens.

Garner then accepted the Hasty Pudding award in the form of a pot of golden pudding. She is a talented performer and philanthropist, the theater group said in a statement about Garner, who is also an ambassador for the charity Save the Children. His predecessors among the winners are Bryce Dallas Howard, Mila Kunis, Helen Mirren, Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock.
Since the 1950s, the University Theater Troupe has presented the award to two performers for “their enduring and impressive contributions to the world of entertainment.” Actor Jason Bateman (53) was voted “Man of the Year” in early February. The theater company announced the winners in December and January. (dpa)
