Robert Downey Jr. won MTV Movie Awards’ Generation trophy on Sunday but he didn’t have to celebrate alone. His Avengers co-stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, and Scarlett Johansson all assembled to present the award and Downey certainly made the most of it.
Downey sort of made light of the award joking, “When the first generation award was given in 2005, I thought simply, ‘Where’s mine?’ And I’ve spent 10 long years patiently awaiting. . . to receive the recognition I’ve so desired.” But the actor, who has been very public about the ups and downs of his career, also took the opportunity to get a little serious saying,
But Downey’s mock demands weren’t the only example of that famous Avengerscamaraderie. When introducing a montage of his past work, Johannson joked, “We should also mention that, like Tony Stark in Iron Man, he’s filthy f*cking rich.” The group also obviously had plenty of fun backstage.
