Blue Steel Neophyte Honoring Look's Originator at MTV Movie Awards  


From People:

There is more to life than being ridiculously good looking. Just ask Ben Stiller.

Zac Efron, 21, will present the Zoolander star, 43, with MTV's Generation Award at the upcoming Movie Awards, the network confirms to PEOPLE.

Stiller has appeared in dozens of films – Reality Bites, There's Something About Mary, Meet the Parents, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Tropic Thunder and Night at the Museum: Battle at the Smithsonian, which opens Friday – and worked in Hollywood as a director, producer and writer.

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).

"Ben is a comedic chameleon, able to make the leap between drama and full-out comedy while maintaining his own unique brand of subversive humor," he said in a statement. "Whether it’s fighting a monkey in a museum or licking a decapitated head, nothing is ever off-limits for him and that’s the type of warped creative vision and commitment MTV loves to reward."

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."

This is sort of crazy. He's now in the category of presenting life-time awards already (even if it is the MMA)? At 21?

I mean good for him and I assume MTV had to offer something special for him to do because he has nothing to promote right now.

I'm curious if he wins his category. I thought Bale might take it because they need the winner to show up (normally a criteria for winning) and he has T4 coming out and therefore would show to promote the movie but just realized that the movie comes out this week so that argument isn't that strong. I think he has a chance that they pick him but it's not sure.

in terms of publicity, shia winning probably makes more sense than bale at this point.

but i, too, hope zef wins.

Zac #11 (Okay, it's not #1, but out of 100 it ain't bad :-)
Okay, really not trying to steal your posting thunder, I hope you don't mind! Just love it when they say nice things about Zac!

AfterElton voted Zac #11 on their Hot 100 list this year.

"Perhaps better than any casting agent or studio, Disney knows that when you hire a teenage actor, he can either grow into his looks – or not. Then there’s Zac Efron, who grew into something so much hotter than anybody could have expected that he zoomed into the 24th spot on last year’s Hot 100 list. Hiding beautiful blue eyes behind a shaggy, yet perfectly groomed haircut, Zac moves up another twelve spots this year as proof that he’s making the successful transition from Tiger Beat fave to certified Hollywood hunk.

While mostly known for wholesome fare such as Hairspray and the High School Musical franchise, Zac revealed in a recent GQ interview publicizing his new flick 17 Again that he was taking career advice from two actors who know a thing or two about starting out as teen stars who made it as serious actors: Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp.

Nobody is quite sure what the future holds for this gorgeous 21-year-old. But here, as in Hollywood, all eyes are on Zac."

"Oh and we saw Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens in the Tokyo airport. They were in "disguise", but B picked 'em out anyway"

NOW THAT I'VE READ THAT OTHER BLURB, in disguise will always be "dressed as Sharpay and Chad" to me.

they should be landing soonish.
Troll St. Trollglamour_addict on May 22nd, 2009 06:37 pm (UTC)
btw, I assume you would have posted had there been, but are there any photos of Zac and Ben? have they met?

They might have met at the Oscars, but for some reason I think they might have met prior.

sidenote; I wonder if Zac was invited to Night at the Museum 2 premiere, but had to decline 'cause of his Japan trip.



hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on May 22nd, 2009 07:19 pm (UTC)
i don't think there are any of them together.

it's definitely likely they've at least been in the same room at some point, whether an oscar party or kca green room or what, who knows.

they also might have met if ben went to tom lennon's comedy show in january. zac was at that. but idk if ben would have gone cause idk how tight ben and tom are.

i wonder if ben's kids are into hsm, lol.

death and life has been added to his imdb page (as rumored anyway).

jeezbee or anyone who might know... can anyone edit his future roles or just special insider people.

well, i mean, i know they get vetted (sort of) by imdb people... but i think we should totally hack his page if possible and put him down for kira in death note, muwahahahahaha.
Troll St. Trollglamour_addict on May 22nd, 2009 07:51 pm (UTC)
do you really think zac will play his younger self? Unless they lessen the amount of years inbetween I dont think Zac can play a 13 year old age difference.

Tell me what the ages are again throughout the book...

How many "scenes" would we see young Charlie and Sam?

It seems to me like they'd have a young Charlie.

Hey is there a list up of other presenters? I am behind on Justin stuff and think he might be thurrrr...

also I am totally not ignoring your awesome novels over at the Zef post from the other day, I am just leaving the UK on Sunday and have all this stuff to dooo and I want to be able to concentrate on those.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on May 23rd, 2009 03:28 am (UTC)
oh, no problem on the reading stuff.

i don't know if there is one list compiled anywhere unfortunately. quick google search on jt didn't turn anything up... but i think a lot of people are hoping for some sort of digital short type thing with him and andy so hopefully so. plus he has the mtv show so good cross platform plug, idk?
