The Hasty Pudding theatricals has named actors Mila Kunis and Paul Rudd 2018’s Woman and Man of the Year.

Kunis has also starred in comedy film Bad Moms, and the sequel, A Bad Moms Christmas. She most recently wrapped up production on The Spy Who Dumped Me, a film set to be released in August, and is still the voice of Meg in the animated series Family Guy.
Paul Rudd recently starred as Ant-Man in the Marvel superhero film Ant-Man. He is well known for his roles in Clueless, Wet Hot American Summer, and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. He will star as Major League Baseball player Moe Berg in the upcoming thriller The Catcher Was a Spy (based on the book of the same name by Nicholas Dawidoff ’85), to premier at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.
Kunis will receive the award on January 25, and Rudd on February 2. Both events include a celebratory roast and presentation of the traditional Pudding Pot. Last year's awardees were Octavia Spencer and Ryan Reynolds; past recipients have included Steven Spielberg, Ar.D. ’16, and Mikhail Baryshnikov, among others.
