It’s not what you think. Well, sort of. The multi-talented musician/actor/restaurant entrepreneur headed to Cambridge, Mass. to receive an award like no other. That’s right, Justin Timberlake was named Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Man of the Year!
So, what does this Ivy League roast mean exactly for JT? Fulfilling a lifelong dream as he mentioned during the recent press conference, “Secretly I always wanted to attend college and I didn’t get the chance to do that.” Justin’s mom and girlfriend, Jessica Biel, also attended the ceremony. (As for a twist of fate, Justin recently starred in The Social Network which took place – you guessed it – at Harvard.)
The prestigious Hasty Pudding Award is bestowed by the theatrical group on campus which dates back to 1844. Every year they crown two celebrities with their tongue-in-cheek award; Anne Hathaway received the accolade for Woman of the Year. Past recipients include James Franco, Sandra Bullock and Robert Downey, Jr.
