Oscar-winning actress Dame Helen Mirren was honored as woman of the year by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals on Thursday. And in the sexiest gesture ever performed on the Cambridge campus, the 68-year-old Mirren twerked. She twerked so hard.

As part of the annual roast, Mirren was asked to mime "twerking" in a game of charades. An embarrassed Mirren first cussed and then, after hesitating, wiggled her ass like the regal lady she is.

However, Mirren admitted that it was not her first twerk. "I've tried in my bedroom, in private, in front of the mirror, very unsuccessfully, so absolutely humiliating to have to do it in public in front of a whole load of people," she told the press after the event.

Actor Neil Patrick Harris will be honored as the troupe's man of the year on Feb. 7.
