Ricky Gervais Says Hosting 2018 Golden Globes Would've 'Ended' His Career!

Ricky Gervais made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday (January 17) and revealed he was “jealous” that Seth Meyers was chosen to host this year’s Golden Globe Awards.

“I was jealous of Seth,” the 56-year-old comedian told Stephen. “An amazing year to do it. I mean, it would’ve been the end of my career, but who cares.”

Ricky continued to explain that he could’ve been the perfect host for this year’s ceremony, despite the sensitive nature of the Time’s Up initiative.

“I think that’s why I’ve done the best stand-up ever. I’m so close to death that I think, ‘What’s the worst that could happen to me?’ Someone being offended now is nothing. So, what? I’m going to die,” Ricky joked, after stating earlier in the interview that he had gained weight, therefore was close to death.
