Yesterday, I criticized Tom Hiddleston’s Golden Globes acceptance speech, which was completely probably the most cringe-inducing second of the awards present, and I’m together with Jimmy Fallon’s entire act. I used to be not alone in my criticism – almost each leisure and gossip weblog ran items on whether or not Hiddles is self-indulgent or whether or not he’s simply parched for consideration. The factor is… whereas I do assume Tom deserved to be criticized, I additionally perceive the place his little “assist staff watch The Evening Supervisor!” story went off the rails, and within the second, I can perceive how that sort of factor can occur. My downside is that Tom is nearly 36 years outdated and the Globes speech was a part of an unlucky sample the place he turns right into a preening, dancing monkey every time the digicam’s on him. He must be taught some self-awareness and be taught to tamp that sh-t down if he needs to nonetheless have a profession, you already know?
Anyway, Tom is aware of that we have been speaking sh-t about him. He posted this to Fb on Monday:
I simply wished to say… I fully agree that my speech on the Golden Globes final evening was inelegantly expressed. In reality, I used to be very nervous, and my phrases simply got here out incorrect. Sincerely, my solely intention was to salute the unbelievable bravery and braveness of the women and men who work so tirelessly for UNICEF UK, Docs With out Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), and World Meals Programme, and the kids of South Sudan, who proceed to seek out hope and pleasure in probably the most troublesome circumstances. I apologise that my nerves acquired the higher of me.
However was that his “solely intention”? His story was about how assist staff binge-watched The Evening Supervisor in South Sudan, solely Tom used a few thousand extra phrases to say that one sentence. In any case, I agree, it was “inelegant.” Some may even say crass and self-absorbed. I additionally doubt that he was nervous as a lot as he was reveling in the truth that all eyes have been on him. I’m shocked he didn’t try one other Robert DeNiro impression.
This did make me really feel sorry for him although: on Sunday evening, after the Globes, Tom partied on the Chateau Marmont. When he was leaving, TMZ’s videographer/paparazzo chatted with him about how his speech was being criticized for being “self-indulgent.” You may see Tom’s face fall and it’s real.
