Neil Patrick Harris - Neil Patrick Harris Dons Drag For Hasty Pudding Honour

Actor Neil Patrick Harris donned a woman's wig, a glittery bra and high-heeled shoes to accept his 2014 Man of the Year award from Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals drama club.

The How I Met Your Mother star embraced the spirit of the event when he took to the stage wearing a dark hairpiece, a silver bra over his tuxedo and a pair of red heels to accept the honour.

He was accompanied to the platform by two men, and the gay actor delighted the audience by giving both his companions a smooch on the lips.

After the ceremony, Harris insisted he thoroughly enjoyed the event: "It's an honour to be chosen as Hasty Pudding's Man of the Year. I am sort of shocked by all of this. And have a lot to live up to... The year that I was born, Jack Lemmon won it and he's like one of my heroes. So this has just been a super fun day. I didn't know what to expect, everyone has been super saucy and super lovely and it's a day I'll remember forever."

Harris' honour comes after British actress Dame Helen Mirren accepted the Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year trophy last month (Jan14) and delighted the crowd by performing a twerking dance routine.
