Sandra Bullock, whose personal life has been somewhat eventful of late, will be back on the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards next month.

A representative of the Academy Award winner has confirmed speculation that she is returning to the spotlight and will attend the ceremony. Bullock was named this week as a recipient of the MTV Generation Award "for her riveting and diverse contributions to the film industry". Since revelations of her husband Jesse James' alleged infidelities earlier this year, the actress has remained in seclusion with her newly-adopted baby son Louis.
