Vivica A. Fox wants to set the record straight when it comes to a rumored sex tape – there isn't one.

"Vivica does not have a sex tape. If I did, I would be making my own money off of it," the Kill Bill actress told PEOPLE backstage Saturday night at the taping of the inaugural BET Honors in Washington, D.C.

Reports of the tape swept the Internet earlier this month, but Fox says, "As a 43-year-old woman, I would never allow a man to put me in that position. If you see me having a love scene, it's going to be choreographed in a movie, and be fabulous."

Fox did, however, have other recent troubles, pleading no contest to DUI last December. She says she's learned a valuable lesson: "Hire a driver."

"I gave Nicole Richie that advice – hire a driver," she says. "It's a lesson I definitely learned. No one is above the law."

At the BET Honors, Fox presented one of six awards to distinguished African-American leaders in business, entertainment, social justice and philanthropy.

Kerry Washington, John Legend, Keyshia Cole and Wyclef Jean were among the celebrities attending the event, which also honored Tyra Banks for her achievements in media and Alicia Keys in the field of entertainment.
