Ricky Gervais walked last nights Golden Globes on the wild side last night instead of it’s usual staid path by joking about the actors and actresses in the audience last night.
In his opening jokes, the Gervais noted the overlook of I Love You, Philip Morris had not been nominated for an award.
He said: “Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor – two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay, so the complete opposite of some famous Scientologists then.” Gervais added after that line: “My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke. They’re not here.” (Hint….Hint: CRUISE and TRAVOLTA )
Gervais also took aim at other stars, in the audience. While introducing Robert Downey Jr, he listed his achievements and added: “But many of you in this room probably know him best from such facilities as the Betty Ford Clinic and Los Angeles County Jail.”
Downey Jr replied: “Aside from the fact that it’s been hugely mean-spirited, with mildly sinister undertones, I’d say the vibe of the show is pretty good so far, wouldn’t you?”
