UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Sandra Bullock was kissing and telling at the MTV Movie Awards.
Bullock, wearing a glittery black dress, received a standing ovation as she accepted the MTV Generation Award in her first live televised appearance since she split with unfaithful husband Jesse James earlier this year. The 45-year-old actress used her acceptance speech to clear up tabloid rumors — “No. 1: I’m not dead.” — and smooch Scarlett Johansson.
“No matter what you might have seen or heard or read lately, I love what I do,” vowed Bullock, “and I’m not going anywhere.”
“Now that we have done that, can we please go back to normal?”
Bullock was presented with the show’s highest honor by her “All About Steve” co-star Bradley Cooper, “The Proposal” co-star Betty White and inexplicably Johansson, the wife of her absentee “Proposal” leading man Ryan Reynolds. When asked why she was there to help hand over the trophy, Johansson hinted she wanted to lay one on Bullock, who awkwardly obliged.
“Now that we have done that,” said a smiling Bullock, “can we please go back to normal?”
