LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - In a night of vagina jokes, naughty humor and a crotch-grab 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 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.

"Fault," 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 Woodley and co-star Ansel Elgort.

Woodley, 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," Woodley said as Green shed tears in the audience.

Woodley 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."   Continued...
