Ricky Gervais: 'I'm sorry if I offended'

Friday January 21, 2011

As debate continues over whether Ricky Gervais went too far at the Golden Globes, the man himself has defended his close to the bone quips.

"I'm sorry if they were offended but I'm not sorry for anything I said," he told Piers Morgan in an interview aired on CNN on Thursday.

"They hired me for a job and if they didn't want me, they shouldn't have hired me."

To say Ricky caused something of a stir is an understatement. But he insists: "I don't think I did anything wrong, honestly.

"Those were like jibes at these people and I'm sure they've got a sense of humour."
