Not only are we still talking about Ricky Gervais’ “Golden Globes” rips, but Judd Apatow is defending TIM ALLEN, who Gervais hilariously compared to living legend Tom Hanks. LOL. source

Politics: Ricky Gervais ruffles some gilded feathers

  • He definitely crossed the line, and some of the things were totally unacceptable. But that’s Ricky.
  • HFPA President Phillip Berk • Ricky Gervais repeatedly said, prior to hosting the Golden Globes last night, that they would “not invite me back.” Boy, was he right. In one of the most awkward yet intriguing award show performances in recent memory, Gervais forced some in the crowd to smile for the cameras whilst being taunted in a way that Robert Downey Jr. called “hugely mean-spirited with mildly sinister undertones.”  source

Politics: Just in time for the holidays, Ricky Gervais explains his atheism

  • As an atheist, I see nothing ‘wrong’ in believing in a god. I don’t think there is a god, but belief in him does no harm. If it helps you in any way, then that’s fine with me. It’s when belief starts infringing on other people’s rights when it worries me.
  • Ricky Gervais • In a lengthy essay he wrote for the Wall Street Journal titled “A Holiday Message from Ricky Gervais: Why I’m An Atheist.” He points out that he wasn’t always this way: “I loved Jesus. He was my hero. More than pop stars. More than footballers. More than God. God was by definition omnipotent and perfect. Jesus was a man. He had to work at it.” But one day, his older brother questioned him about his religion, and then he started thinking about it, and that was that. Gervais ends the essay with a pretty simple but smart point about the whole matter: “You won’t burn in hell. But be nice anyway.” Good to know. source

Culture: The first and only time “The Marriage Ref” will ever be funny

  • OK Ricky, we admit it. We put crack in your drink. Pretty much everything about “The Marriage Ref” is stupid as heck, especially the fact that Jerry Seinfeld produced it, but at least the celebrities appearing on the show seem to realize it too. Ricky Gervais calls it “the weirdest show I’ve ever been on,” and is bewildered at his fellow celebrity guests – Larry David and Madonna. At least the celebrities agree that this show sucks. source
