MTV Movie Awards: Backstage!
A slinky Christina Aguilera vamps it up during her performance of "Ain't No Other Man" at the MTV Movie Awards on Saturday in Culver City, Calif. The singer – who hosted an afterparty with pal Jessica Alba at L.A. club Privilege – will release her new album, Back to Basics, in August.
Jake Gyllenhaal, with presenter Eva Mendes, has plenty to smile about backstage at the show: He took home a Golden Popcorn for best kiss for Brokeback Mountain. "I said to (Heath Ledger) after we finished the scene, if we don't win the MTV Movie Award for best kiss that it wasn't worth it," Gyllenhaal joked in his acceptance speech.
Host Jessica Alba is a quick-change fashion plate at the MTV Awards, where she scored a sexiest performance award for her Sin City pole dance. The actress thanked "all the perverts who voted for me."
Presenter Justin Timberlake, who's racking up a number of high-profile roles in such films as Alpha Dog and Shrek the Third, looks every bit the dapper star as he strolls the blue carpet.
WALK THE LINE
Jessica Simpson (in Gucci) said "everything's great" about her life. In two weeks, the singer is shooting her video for the single "Public Affair" with director Brett Ratner at the helm. "I'm fired up – it's going to be awesome."
Jim Carrey – who earned a lifetime achievement award – and Will Ferrell put the squeeze on John C. Reilly. Ferrell and Reilly attended the awards dressed as their racecar-driving characters from the comedy Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.
Gnarls Barkley frontman Cee-Lo feels the Force along with the rest of his Star Wars-costumed group while performing their hit song "Crazy."
Everything is A-OK backstage with Sacha Baron Cohen (in character as Kazakhstani TV personality Borat) and Zach Braff. Cohen's fiancée, Australian actress Isla Fisher, won a breakthrough performance award for her role as the sex-crazed sister in Wedding Crashers.
Backstage, presenter Kate Hudson is at peace with herself. Later that night, Hudson hit an afterparty at the Chateau Marmont, where she was spotted on the dance floor with Justin Timberlake and chatting up her You, Me and Dupree costar Owen Wilson.
