Ricky Gervais' Jokes Spot On At Golden Globes Awards
Via Fox News
On Charlie Sheen:
“It’s going to be a night of heavy drinking,” Gervais said in his opening monologue. “Or as Charlie Sheen calls it, breakfast… He picked up a porn star, paid her to have dinner with him, introduced her to his ex wife – as you do – went to a hotel, got drunk, got naked, trashed the place while she was locked in a cupboard ... and that was a Monday! What did he do New Year's Eve?"
On Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie's film 'The Tourist':
"I haven’t even seen ‘The Tourist,’” Gervais said. “Who has? There's this ridiculous rumor going around that the only reason ‘The Tourist’ was nominated was so that the Hollywood Foreign Press could hang out with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. That's rubbish. They also accepted bribes."
On the film “I Love You, Phillip Morris”:
"Two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay – which is the exact opposite of some famous Scientologists," he said to the flabbergasted audience. "Probably! My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke."
On Robert Downey Jr.:
...someone better known for his stays "at the Betty Ford Clinic and the L.A. County Jail" than for his prominent movie roles.
On “Sex & the City 2” stars:
...stating that he was sure the team that airbrushed the poster would win the award for special effects.
On Sandra Bullock:
...claimed Sandra Bullock told him backstage that she thought that “poor people were gross and smelled bad.”
