A few hours before the Golden Globes, naughty host Ricky Gervais decided to tweet this shirtless photo of himself with the caption, “Better get dressed and offend some humourless c–ts I suppose.”

Yesterday morning, Gervais appeared on NBC’s Today show to declare, “I’ve got to bite the hand that feeds me. I’ve got to have a go at NBC, at the Hollywood Foreign Press — with good humor. I don’t want this nauseating, backslapping ‘aren’t we all great’ … yeah, we know we’re all great. It’s entertainment, it’s fairyland, it’s TV, this isn’t real, we’re … not saving lives.”

Last night was the fourth time the British actor hosted the award show.
