GOSSIP: Reese Witherspoon Honored with Generation Award

She's been a mainstay in the world of cinema for years, and Reese Witherspoon was toasted at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards in Universal City, California on Sunday night (June 5).

Gracing the Gibson Amphitheatre venue, the "Legally Blonde" beauty received the MTV Generation Award for her lifelong accomplishments in Tinseltown.

During her acceptance speech, Reese said, "I was really nervous when they told me I was gonna get this award."
