Marion Cotillard performed a song from her movie La Vie En Rose as she was named woman of the year by Harvard's Hasty Pudding Theatricals.

The French actress, who won the 2007 best actress Oscar for her portrayal of singer Edith Piaf in the film, received her pudding pot during the event, which is held every year and honours stars who have made a lasting and impressive contribution to entertainment.

Marion smiled, waved and caught a teddy bear from the crowd during a parade through Cambridge's Harvard Square.

The procession was followed by a roast of the 37-year-old actress at Hasty Pudding headquarters, during which she performed.

Claire Danes was the woman of the year in 2012.

Hasty Pudding Theatricals is America's oldest undergraduate drama troupe.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Expressing your creative side is strongly advised. Take this opportunity to write, paint or play music. Relatives may not appreciate your work, but that doesn't matter. The important thing is to satisfy your own taste. People who are daring and experimental will appreciate your efforts. Don't be surprised if you're given a chance to showcase your work in a magazine, boutique or gallery. Fame and acclaim can be yours, so long as you're willing to follow your instincts.More
