Actress Marion Cotillard was named the "Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year" by the undergraduate drama society of Harvard University. The actress was honored in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Jan. 31, for her contribution to the film industry with a parade before she was presented with a pudding pot.

The "Rust and Bone" actress also took part in the parade sitting atop a white convertible car. She seemed to genuinely enjoy the honor and waved at the crowd while the members of the group followed, dressed in colorful and attractive outfits , according to Tonight.

The French beauty later proudly showed off the pudding pot and showered kisses on it. The actress is on a roll right now as she has been nominated for various prestigious awards including the Golden Globe Award, SAG Award and BAFTA for her role in "Rust and Bone."

The 37-year-old has also channelled her talents towards environment activism and fashion. She has participated in numerous campaigns for environmental protection and is also the spokesperson for Greenpeace.

She has also fronted various ads for Dior and will soon release her line of handbags under the Dior label. In Dior's web documentary the French actress admits to being torn between "rock and roll type or something extremely simple."

Cotillard draws her inspiration from the trees against the winter night sky and the Lady Dior 360 bag will feature houndstooth. "I adore houndstooth," she says adding, "I would still like to put a strong Dior symbol on it."

Receiving the honor of "Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year" Cotillard joins the list of awardees which includes Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Nicole Kidman, Drew Barrymore and Scarlett Johansson.
