As expected, Ricky Gervais delivered the goods at the 2012 Golden Globes. Though I found him to be a bit tamer than anticipated, he still took some much-loved jabs at Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Johnny Depp, whom Gervais asked if he’s seen The Tourist. Depp was a good sport, and confessed that he hadn’t. He also compared the Golden Globes to the Oscars only “without the esteem?” Watch below.
There are two certainties in life: 1) Ricky Gervais is damn funny, and 2) Angelina Jolie has no sense of humor. I really want to like her, and I promise I’ve made a serious effort to change my opinion over the years. But when the cameras cut to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and only Pitt is laughing, I can’t help but wonder what Angelina’s problem is. The only explanation is that Gervais ragged on her film, The Tourist, but that certainly doesn’t explain why her costar, Johnny Depp, was also seen laughing. Is Depp just a better sport? Here’s my advice to the actors that get made fun of — if you don’t think it’s funny, then use your acting skills to laugh anyways, otherwise the viewing public just sees you as a humorless curmudgeon.
