"I've grown up, struggled, failed, succeeded, partied way too much, repented, begged for second chances and literally clawed my way to the top," said Robert Downey Jr.

In a night of adult jokes and naughty humor at the irreverent MTV Movie Awards, teen cancer romance The Fault In Our Stars walked away the big winner while Iron Man Robert Downey Jr. delivered wise words for the youth-orientated show.

Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner, the star cast of upcoming summer blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron, handed their co-star Mr Downey the MTV Generation Award, playfully kneeling at his feet as he gave his speech.
"I've grown up, struggled, failed, succeeded, partied way too much, repented, begged for second chances and literally clawed my way to the top," the 50-year-old actor said.
"With my fellow Avengers, I advise you to dream big, work hard, keep your noses clean, be of service and, because you can, define your generation," he said.


The Fault In Our Stars, a film about two teenagers stricken with cancer who fall in love, won three awards: Movie of the Year, Best Female Performance for lead actress Shailene Woodley and Best Kiss for Shailene and co-star Ansel Elgort.
Shailene, 23, dedicated her accolade to author John Green, who penned the novel on which the film was based.
"It changed my life when I read it and dramatically influenced who I am today, and his words will transcend time," Shailene said as John Green shed tears in the audience.
Shailene also received the night's Trailblazer Award, which rewards individuals carving a unique and inspirational path in movies, from her Divergent co-star Miles Teller, who praised the actress for being "an incredible force of nature."
Viacom Inc-owned MTV's Movie Awards ushers in the summer blockbuster movie season, and is known for its more unconventional award categories voted for by fans, such as Best Scared-As-S**t performance, won by Jennifer Lopez for low-budget horror movie Boy Next Door.
The night's most irreverent moments came courtesy of comedian host Amy Schumer, who filled her monologue and movie parody sketches with sexual innuendo.
She also shared a passionate kiss with model Amber Rose, while Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson dressed in her intimates and angel wings on stage.
Neighbors stars Zac Efron and Dave Franco accepted their popcorn-shaped accolade for best comedic duo dressed in character from the raucous comedy.
Neighbors and dystopian young adult thriller The Maze Runner also won three awards each, but most were not televised.
