(Newser) – This year's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year: Spider-Man villain and Milk co-star James Franco. He wore a blonde wig, purple heels, and a gold-spangled pineapple-shaped bra to collect his award from the Harvard theatrical troupe last night, the Boston Globe reports. Franco accepted his pudding pot in good cheer, despite some ribbing for Wicker Man, and even received a pseudo bar mitzvah.

"I guess I wasn't a man until tonight," said Franco. "I couldn't ask for anything more."
