Helen Mirren twerked as she was honoured as woman of the year by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals. During a round of charades, she at first tried to sign the word "twerk," then swore and danced. She admitted she's tried to twerk privately in her bedroom, but having to do it in public was humiliating.

Hasty Pudding Theatricals annually honour performers who have made a lasting contribution to entertainment. Actor Neil Patrick Harris will be awarded the man of the year award on February 7.
