Patrick Swayze is Scarlett Johansson's ideal man

The blonde actress has had a crush on the actor since watching him swivel his hips in cult romantic film 'Dirty Dancing'.

When Scarlett was asked to name her dream date, she said: "Who would I most like to be romantically linked with? Probably Patrick Swayze. That would be my dream come true."

The 22-year-old, who was receiving Harvard's Hasty Pudding woman of the year award when she made the comments, was also asked if she would consider getting steamy with a younger man.

Scarlett joked, "Depends on how much champagne we have at dinner."

The actress was then given a pair of oversized glasses and asked to impersonate her 'Scoop' and 'Match Point' director Woody Allen.

One Harvard student joked, "You guys are pretty close, right? I heard he's almost been like an adopted father to you."

Allen is married to his ex-lover Mia Farrow's adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.

As she received her award on Thursday, Scarlett joked, "This is the closest I'll ever get to a Harvard degree, for sure."

The prestigious honour is given by student drama group Hasty Pudding Theatricals to performers who have made a "lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment".

Ben Stiller is to be crowned Harvard Hasty Pudding man of the year on February 23.
