Oscar-nominated actress Anne Hathaway has received a good-natured ribbing from Harvard's Hasty Pudding Theatricals student drama troupe.

The group's Woman of the Year was honored yesterday with a parade down Massachusetts Avenue near the university in Cambridge, followed by a roast where she received her pudding pot from Harvard men in drag.

She joins a distinguished list of past recipients that includes Katharine Hepburn, Lauren Bacall and Meryl Streep. Hathaway was nominated for an Academy Award for best actress in 2009 for her role in "Rachel Getting Married."


Barely a week after his knockout win in the Massachusetts Senate race, Scott Brown is boasting that he can beat President Obama.

At basketball.

In an appearance on "The Jay Leno Show" yesterday, the Republican says he challenged the Democratic president to a two-on-two showdown when they talked on election night.

Brown says he'd team up with his daughter, who plays guard at Boston College.

He predicted a tough match but "we'd have the upper hand."


Sly Stone sued a former business manager and others yesterday, claiming tens of millions of dollars in royalties were kept from the singer who now depends on Social Security to survive.

Stone, whose real name is Sylvester Stewart, was the frontman of the 1970s funk group Sly and The Family Stone.

He sued former manager Gerald Goldstein and several companies in Los Angeles, alleging they kept 20 years of royalty payments and leveraged Stone's work and rights to accumulate as much as $80 million in assets.
