Anthony Hopkins, 63, and Drew Barrymore, 25, have been named Man and Woman of the Year by Harvard University's irreverent Hasty Pudding Theatricals, according to Reuters. Hopkins, who won an Academy Award for his portrayal of Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter in "The Silence of the Lambs," is scheduled to be ridiculed and presented with the honorary Pudding Pot on February 15. "Charlie's Angels" co-star Drew Barrymore will lead a parade before she is roasted and given her own pot on Feb 8. The Hasty Pudding awards are presented annually to performers who have made "a lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment," according to a statement. Previous winners have included Katharine Hepburn, Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts as well as Paul Newman, Robert De Niro and Harrison Ford.
