Ricky Gervais is Loaded

Celebrity Net Worth reported that British comedian Ricky Gervais is worth $80 million. No wonder he’s so f-cking happy all the time. Gervais responded on his blog:

“Wow! I think there must be a leak at my accountants, I know it sounds a lot, but remember, I donate a lot of this to good causes. (The Inland Revenue mainly.)"

When asked how he’ll spend his money, Gervais said, "I will have to get my family a million scratch cards each for Christmas. I have decided to use the rest of the money to take over Libya."

So now we know why he’s always laughing maniacally. “I made millions from a hit TV show, then made more millions pitching the exact same show somewhere else! And you bought it! Hehehehee!”

Gervais made quite the impression at this year’s Golden Globes, where he said things like, “Nothing for Sex and the City 2. I was sure the award for best special effects would go to the team that airbrushed that poster.”

With his bawdy hosting, he joined the ranks of Chris Rock hosting the 2005 Oscars, where Rock said, “The only acting you ever see at the Oscars is when people act like they're not mad they lost. Nicole Kidman was smiling so wide, she should have won an Emmy at the Oscars for her great performance.”

This year’s guest host Anne Hathaway told the Hollywood Reporter, “I can guarantee that if you’re looking for someone to call people out, we’re not your hosts."

I guess we know which parts of the show viewers will be getting up for food.
