Ricky Gervais's quotes

  • [accepting his Golden Globe] I'm not from these parts. I'm from a little place called England--we used to run the world before you lot.
  • [about the show-biz lifestyle] It's all too much trouble for me. It's probably because I'm fat and lazy and old.
  • [on turning down the chance to appear in Ocean's Twelve (2004)] Why say a couple of lines opposite Brad Pitt when I could be playing lead back home?
  • I remember when we were talking to one of the executives at the BBC. And he said, "Now hold on, this man [David Brent] is so incompetent, why wouldn't he be fired?' and I said, "Go and take a look around this building. Just go and knock on a few doors."
  • Money gives me the creeps and mildly embarrasses me. I get paid too much anyway.
  • I'm a lot taller than I look on television and younger, and for the role of David Brent, I wore a fat suit under my shirt and trousers. Really I'm about 25 and about 6'1" tall. So that's probably why you don't recognize me in the street.
  • I grew up watching fantastic mainstream comedies like Porridge (1974) and Rising Damp (1974). There are some mainstream things I love.
  • Oh, these actors who ask, "What's my motivation?" all the time. Who cares? I'll tell you what your motivation is: it's the only thing you can do, and you're getting paid to do it, so shut the hell up!
  • [Hosting the 2011 Golden Globes] It's going to be night of partying and heavy drinking. Or as Charlie Sheen calls it, breakfast.
  • I like Phil Collins, he's a lovely man, but I don't want Phil Collins fans. I don't want the comedy equivalent.
  • [in 2013 following a series of celebrity arrests in the UK on suspicion of sexual offences] Will all male British entertainers who were famous in the 1970s please just report to your local police station now.
  • [on the death of James Gandolfini] Damn. RIP James Gandofini. An amazing actor that made arguably the greatest drama of all time, and a funny, sweet, gentle giant off screen.
  • Someone not liking my work doesn't mean I have to give the awards or the money back. People who don't like your work have no effect on you.
  • [on Sir Jimmy Savile] My first guest on my first TV show. A proper British eccentric.
  • [on homosexual marriage] It's a victory for all of us. Anything that promotes equality, promotes progress. You can't take equality "too far".
  • Offence is the collateral damage of free speech.
  • It's more important to spend your energy trying to stop actual bad things than to run around trying to stop jokes about bad things.
  • Celebrities, make it harder for hackers to get nude pics of you from your computer by not putting nude pics of yourself on the computer.
  • [on the video for "Bitter Heart" by Seona Dancing] I think the video cost 400 pounds and luckily we had an underground car park for the day. But when you're 21 you can get away with anything, can't you?
  • [on his look as a 1980s pop star in Seona Dancing] I'm not ashamed how I looked then, I'm ashamed how I look now.
  • [on Sir Jimmy Savile] Basically The A-Team (1983) rolled into one. He's got the cigar of Hannibal, he's a ladies' man like Face, he's got the jewelry of Mr. T, and he's mad like Murdock. And not in a good way.
  • Just go into Ladbrokes tomorrow and put a thousand pounds on anyone in the Special Olympics "because they're all winners". You try telling that to Ladbrokes. "He won." "He came in eighth, mate." "He's a winner." "Fuck off out of the shop."
  • I love quoting great men. Ricky Gervais.
  • The Jimmy Savile waxwork I got cheap from Madame Tussaud's is doing a great job at my front gate keeping the trick-or-treaters away. Ha ha.
  • What must've happened to you in your life to make you want to kill a beautiful animal and then lie next to it smiling?
  • The only reason I work out is to live longer so I can eat more cheese and drink more wine.
  • [on Netflix acquiring his movie Special Correspondents (2016) for 2016] Having shaken up the TV industry, Netflix is about to do the same to Hollywood. It's great to be part of the changing future.
  • I'm not a wolf in sheep's clothing. I'm a wolf in wolf's clothing.
  • Future generations will view us as barbarians for bullfighting, enslaving dolphins and killing for fake medicine. And they should. It's mental.
  • Off to bed as I have to get up at Twat O'clock tomorrow for the first day filming on Special Correspondents (2016). Night.
  • Everyone I've admired has been an acquired taste--The Simpsons (1989), Radiohead, David Bowie. Anything that captures everyone soon outstays its welcome.
  • Twitter is like road rage.
  • I like a drink as much as the next man. Unless the next man is Mel Gibson!
  • [Ellen Interview] It's an odd question, isn't it? "Why don't you have children?" It should be "Why do you have children?"
