Tom Hiddleston Apologizes for Golden Globes Speech, Says It Was 'Inelegantly Expressed'

Tom Hiddleston has released an official apology statement for his acceptance speech at the 2017 Golden Globes after he was criticized for being “self-indulgent.”

The 35-year-old actor won an award for his work on the limited series The Night Manager and he told a lengthy story about how the people of South Sudan said that they watched and enjoyed the series. He said he was glad to bring the people there some enjoyment during their hard times.

People on social media felt that Tom was just giving himself a pat on the back and he initially responded to criticism by saying we need to do our best to help others. He later said his nerves got the better of him.

“I just wanted to say… I completely agree that my speech at the Golden Globes last night was inelegantly expressed,” Tom said on Facebook. “In truth, I was very nervous, and my words just came out wrong. Sincerely, my only intention was to salute the incredible bravery and courage of the men and women who work so tirelessly for UNICEF UK, Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), and World Food Programme, and the children of South Sudan, who continue to find hope and joy in the most difficult conditions. I apologise that my nerves got the better of me.”

    This was exceptional, as was his work in it.
    Pretty cool story, too.

    People need to get off his back. He’s a very nice, humble, intelligent guy who is very good to his fans. It was a bit long-winded, but so was Meryl’s preaching, too.

    I am saddened that he felt he needed to make a public apology. Mr. Hiddleston, it was not necessary. I understood you and admired it. I didn’t need to wake up this morning to hear social media blow up over this. You are a super intelligent and superb actor who I believe is coming into your own. You and Benedict Cumberbatch are in the same category in my opinion. Please, Mr Hiddleston, never apologize for trying to do good. Period.

    The Night Manager was superb. Glad both the guys won.

    He needn’t have to apologize, it was an honest heartfelt speech. He is such a well-spoken and elegant man, a classic British man. As to all the frowning upon in that room, they’re a bunch of self-entitled a-holes.
