Helen Mirren, the sexiest 68-year-old woman in the world, showed off her twerking talents on Thursday as she accepted a Hasty Pudding award, MSN reported on Friday.

Mirren was being honored as woman of the year by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals at Harvard University. Asked to twerk, the Academy Award winner tried to get out of it, saying:

I refuse to do it. I'm gonna find another way around it!

Mirren tried to sign the word "twerk" during Thursday's roast ceremony, then decided to channel Miley Cyrus, let slip a curse word, and yes, twerked.

Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the United States' oldest undergraduate drama society. Its man and woman of the year awards are given annually and are described by Wikipedia as follows:

The society is notable for their annual selection of famous entertainers as Woman of the Year (since 1951) and Man of the Year (since 1967). These awards are usually treated with great seriousness by the honorees, who always attend the awards ceremony, and are treated to a celebratory "roast," and a parade.

Last year's winners were Marion Cotillard and Kiefer Sutherland.

Emmy Award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris will be honored as man of the year on Feb. 7.
