Watch Johnny Depp Confront Ricky Gervais About The Golden Globes

It's no secret that we loved Ricky Gervais' hosting of The Golden Globes this past year.  We all heard about hurt feelings after the show, and now Johnny Depp has confronted Ricky while cameras caught the awkward moment.  However it was all just for Ricky's new television series Life's Too Short.

Life's Too Short stars Ricky Gervais, Steven Merchant and Warwick Davis (Return of the Jedi, Harry Potter, Willow).  This series centers around Warwick's crazy career in the entertainment industry as a little person.  Well, an extreme version of what his career is like.  This scene shows Warwick and Johnny Depp heading in to Ricky's office where Johnny has a word with him about his Golden Globe jokes.  Take the jump to watch.

This proves that Johnny Depp does indeed have a sense of humor, and is willing to play up his star power for a laugh.  I especially loved how he kept using Ricky's water glass as an ashtray.  Plus the joke about Helena Bonham Carter being Johnny's leading lady in the next Tim Burton movie was fantastic.  This whole piece is such a great way for Ricky to address The Golden Globes "controversy" in his own style.  

Life's Too Short will air on BBC2 beginning November 10th, then on HBO in February 2012...and probably YouTube between then.

What say you?

  1. this is wonderful. I love how comedians always retreat into the "just jokes" stance after they offend, but when they go on PBS or get up at awards show and talk about what an important social commentary humor is. So, can I disregard Richard Pryor's or Lenny Bruce's work, because they're "just jokes"?
