image for Ricky Gervais reveals what he did for an hour at the Golden Globes
The Golden Globes are not the Oscars

Ricky Gervais was hauled off stage at the Golden Globes this week and did not return for a whole hour.

He maintains that this was not because of his offensive comments to the Hollywood glitterati as they came on.

"Well," he said, "The organisers at the GGs, that's what I like to call them, haha. The organisers at the GGs knew what I was going to do before I ever went on stage. I gave them my script, such as it was. I don't generally stick to a script, haha."

However, Gervais was taken off stage when he received a message from the producers to the effect that a couple of the celebrities wanted to bribe Gervais to be nicer to them as they came on.

"You'll notice," he said with his self-depreciating laugh, "that I was very complimentary to Demi Moore. She was very obliging though and I couldn't bring myself to be nasty."

However, Clint Eastwood only offered Gervais a Ferrari F80.

"What am I going to do with another car? Especially in LA. You're better off with a bike in LA. Ooh, I'm remembering Meg Ryan now. No connection with the bike, no no no no."

The biggest loser in terms of offensive comments was Bruce Willis. The only part of his introduction that could be aired was his reference to being Ashton Kutcher's dad.

"What can I say?" said Gervais. "Demi Moore was very nice to me."
