Joseph Gordon-Levitt was named Harvard’s 2016 Man of the Year over the weekend, but the event was not your average award ceremony.
Red carpets and swag bags were replaced by joking drag queens, as the university’s prestigious theater troupe, Hasty Pudding Theatricals, roasted the actor in an over-the-top night of laughs.
The company poked fun at JGL for his Oscar snubs and dropping out of Columbia University, but it was when they had him join them on stage for some challenges that the real fun began.
Gordon-Levitt gave a sexy lap dance to one of the queens who was dressed as a Russian porn star, and put on a skin-tight Robin costume to pay homage to his role in 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises.
He even took off his pants at one point to do a spot-on impression of his friend Seth Rogen.
“Do you actually have to take tests or just have rich parents to get into this school?” he said to the crowd, in character as Rogen.
He eventually received the prized pudding pot, but not before the best part of all — making out with one of the drag queens!
After a lunch with members of the theater troupe, Joseph and the young actors held a public event on a stage outside in the snow where they performed all kinds of stunts, including Gordon-Levitt “sharing a lengthy kiss” with drag queen Lindsey Graham, aka Harvard senior Max McGillivray.
Awards season would be a whole lot more fun if all the ceremonies were more like this.
