Actor Mark Ruffalo commented on American culture during his speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday, praising "Mother Earth" and saying people must move beyond the nation's "cruel past."

"We have a dying mother… she's mother earth and we must come to balance with her and honor her and she'll heal too," said Ruffalo. "So let's be courageous together guys and let's turn the page on the cruel past of this nation."

Ruffalo, who plays "The Incredible Hulk" in Marvel's cinematic universe, went on to praise the rise of "inclusion" and said people have been living in a "hideous dark storm."

"The good news is inclusion and justice and care for mother earth is breaking out everywhere: the godly light of decency breaking through the hideous dark storm we've been living through," he said.

The actor won the award for his role in HBO's "I Know This Much Is True," where he portrays twin brothers – one of whom is schizophrenic.
