Young Hollywood hottie, Zac Efron, seen here in a photoshoot for Japanese Elle, is set to present Ben Stiller with MTV’s Generation Award at the upcoming Movie Awards. People reports that Van Toffler, President of MTV Networks Music/Logo/Film Group, cited Stiller’s “versatility and talent” as reasons for honoring him at the Movie Awards, set to air on MTV May 31 (9 p.m. ET).
Stiller is already expressing his appreciation for the recognition – in his own way: “I am honored to be getting the ‘Generation Award,’ ” the star says in his own statement. “I was given my first show at MTV, and also cancelled for the first time. I also was secretly having an affair with JJ Jackson, so it brings back pleasant memories.”
Now lets hope that Ben Stiller can actually be funny while accepting his award. His last few appearances (the Oscars appearance stands out) have fallen quite flat.
