Hugh Jackman's Golden Globes acceptance speech last night was stuffed up with TERRIBLE ADVICE -- when he jokes that flu shots aren't necessary -- and now, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention are on a mission to correct his message.
A rep for the CDC tells TMZ, "I don’t know if he really meant that vaccination was not a good thing to do, but each year millions become ill with influenza; more than 200,000 may be hospitalized; and between 3,000 and 49,000 will die."
The rep adds, "The first and most important step in protecting against the flu is to get a flu vaccine each season."
For those who missed the show, Hugh took the stage after winning Best Actor in a comedy or musical -- and joked, "Sorry, I’m at the tail end of this flu and I was kicking myself for not getting the flu shot ... but it appears actually you don’t need one. I feel great!"
Jodie Foster said it wasn't a "coming out" speech, but after receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes ... the legendary actress sort of did just that.
In a bizarre, rambling and aggressive speech, Foster told the crowd she was single (*wink, wink) and talked about trying to live a private life ... one which has never involved having her own reality show ... or talking about her sexual orientation.
Then, Jodie kinda sorta did an about-face, saying she did her "coming out 1,000 years ago" and went on to thank her ex-partner and co-parent, Cydney Bernard.
It's a speech that really just defies explanation, so just watch the video and piece it together for yourself.
By the way ... best line of the night was the last, when Amy Poehler,with Tina Fey by her side, ended the show by saying, "Thank you very much. We're going home with Jodie Foster."
The 70th Annual Golden Globes are in full swing and as usual there's sure to be some fashion fiascoes showing up and showing off. Check out all the photos for all the hits, runs and misses from the show!
With Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie not scheduled to attend the Golden Globes, their on-call B-list doubles -- Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green -- arrived looking just like Brangelina did back at a film festival in 2009.
