"I gotta thank MTV. This is quite an amazing honor, truly. It's like the "Get Out of the Business Award" basically, like 'all right you've done too much.' And clearly based on the clips, there's something wrong with me. Thank you very, very much," the 48-year-old Golden Globe winner said during his acceptance speech.
