4 Ricky Gervais Quotes That You Can't Believe He Said
These 4 Ricky Gervais quotes will surely come as no surprise for anyone familiar with his unpredictable comedic style. Ricky Gervais is an English comedian who has made uncomfortable situations his business and is known for the original British version of the television series "The Office." But after his controversial hosting of the 2011 Golden Globe Awards, Ricky Gervais's shock value was not found funny by many of Hollywood's elite players, including the influential producer Harvey Weinstein, who has been quoted as saying: “Knowing that Ricky Gervais will never work again means a lot to me. I’m going to make sure of it.” Here are his quotes that even A-list actors could not believe he said.
"It's going to be a night of partying and heavy drinking. Or as Charlie Sheen calls it: breakfast." This Ricky Gervais quote will surely not be winning him many invites to pop some champagne with Charlie anytime soon. With this Golden Globe humor taking place during Charlie Sheen's famous rants stemming from Sheen's television show "Two and a Half Men", Gervais seems to be doing what most comedians do—poke fun at current events. But with Charlie Sheen's every move getting analyzed during this time, could this also be considered a "kicking a guy when he is down" moment?
"Next up, Eva Longoria has the daunting task of introducing the President of the Hollywood Foreign Press. That's nothing, I just had to help him off the toilet and pop his teeth in." Everyone gets old, and will have zero choice in the matter. That is what makes this an "I can't believe he went there" quote from Ricky Gervais. Being that this elderly gentleman is the Present of the Hollywood Foreign press, the cliché that all publicity is good publicity may not be true for Ricky Gervais after all.
“The next presenter is a true Hollywood icon. In ten of the biggest blockbusters of all time, he has shown his extraordinary acting versatility. He has played a boxer … and Rambo. Please welcome Sylvester Stallone!” Even in his 60s, Sylvester Stallone does not look like the type of guy to pick a fight with. This Ricky Gervais quote from the 2011 Golden Globe Award ceremony may have made Stallone consider casting Gervais as Rocky's next boxing opponent. Hopefully the "Italian Stallion" has a good sense of humor.
“Congratulations to Hugh Hefner, who is getting married at age 84 to 24-year-old beauty Crystal Harris. When asked why she was marrying him, she said, ‘He lied about his age. He told me he was 94'. Just don’t look at it when you touch it.” This makes the second remark by Ricky Gervais against senior citizens of the entertainment industry at the 2011 Golden Globes. The founder of the Playboy's marriage plans became a prime target for this Gervais quote. Hopefully when Ricky Gervais gets up in age he will not have some youngster questioning his "bedroom equipment."
