Tom Hiddleston Blames Nerves For Criticized Golden Globes Speech

Tom Hiddleston is apologizing for his "inelegantly expressed" comments while accepting the Golden Globe award for 'The Night Manager'.

Viewers criticized the speech about an interaction he had while visiting Africa as out of touch and self-aggrandizing.

Hiddleston reflected on his humanitarian work in South Sudan and recalled a moment when doctors approached him to tell him they had just watched the AMC miniseries.

"They were a group of doctors and nurses. And they wanted to say hello because during the shelling the previous month, they had binge-watched The Night Manager."

"The idea that I, or we, could provide some relief, entertainment for people who worked for UNICEF who are fixing the world in the places where it is broken, made me immensely proud," he said.

'Scandal' star Joshua Malina sarcastically thanked the actor on social media: "Thank you to Tom Hiddleston and all actors who dare to perform in projects that are shown in some of the most dangerous parts of the world."

Hiddleston tried to explain his speech a day after the awards.

"I just wanted to say, I completely agree that my speech at the Golden Globes last night was inelegantly expressed," he wrote 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/ Medecins Sans Frontieres (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."
