Sarah Jessica Parker
sings for her Pudding
as Woman of the Year

Swapping New York cool for wide-eyed gushing, "Sex and the City" star and co-producer Sarah Jessica Parker arrived at Harvard yesterday (Feb. 7) to collect the Hasty Pudding Theatricals' annual Woman of the Year award.

"This is, I really believe, the highest honor in the land," she said as she posed proudly with the brass pudding pot. "This is the pinnacle. This is what I'm going to tell my phantom children."

Parker, who started acting as a child and never attended college, began her reign with a tour of Harvard Yard.

"It's magnificent," she said, snapping nearly as many photos on a disposable camera as were taken of her by journalists and onlookers.

On the brief tour, which began at Johnson Gate and proceeded to the John Harvard statue before exiting onto Massachusetts Avenue, Parker chatted easily with the Pudding members who escorted her.
