Originally posted 06/07/2010 10:50AM



Tom Cruise has had decent dance moves since Risky Business. But he took things to a whole new level Sunday at the MTV Movie Awards – grinding his way through a hilarious routine in character as Tropic Thunder's comically crass film producer Les Grossman.

Cruise, 47, showed off the foul-mouthed, balding, hairy-armed Grossman's smooth, not-very-sexy moves in a dance-off with Jennifer Lopez on her song "Get Right." The routine brought raucous applause from the audience, as well as a beaming grin from wife Katie Holmes.

"It was a lot of fun – it was a blast!" Cruise told PEOPLE in the press room afterward. "You know, I can dance a bit, and we rehearsed. And my wife's a dancer, so I like dancing!"

Defining the Generation Award as something that goes to "old people" who are clearing out to make way for younger ones, Bullock told the crowd inside Universal City's Gibson Amphitheater, "That's not going to happen. I'm staying. Because no matter what you might have seen or heard or read lately, I love what I do. And I'm not going anywhere."
