Shirtless Ricky Gervais & Ellie Kemper: 'GQ' Comedy Features!

Ricky Gervais goes shirtless for a feature in GQ magazine’s June 2013 issue (with James Franco on the cover)!

Here’s what the 51-year-old comedian and actor had to share:

On the ending of The Office: “You know, it wasn’t my baby. It was my rights, so I cashed the checks. I think it was good, but I didn’t have the same emotional attachment to it.”

On being worried about how people see him: “This will sound arrogant: I don’t worry about it at all. I think I’m pretty self-aware. I think I know what I’m doing. You know when you’ve been a prat, you know when you’re being a prat, you know when something sounds pretentious. But you’re right—by definition you don’t know. It’s funny, Christopher Guest said to me—we were talking about comedians we used to like and if people go off the boil—and he was basically saying: ‘What if we become the people we don’t rate anymore? What if we lose it and we don’t know it?’ And I went (grins), ‘Who cares?’”

On what he talked about with David Bowie: “Music and comedy. I think I might have said what a huge fan I was. And I think he liked my stuff. He introduced me at Madison Square Garden—you are asking! I got him to do a little thing in Extras. I remember we went round his flat, and it’s exactly as you’d expect it to be—just beautiful and tasteful and modern, and there’s this wonderful statue. And I went, ‘Oh, that’s amazing.’ (slips into a perfect David Bowie impression) ‘Yeah, the artist, what he’s trying to do there is do the 3-D representation of Picasso’s 2-D representation of 3-D…(pauses)… My daughter likes to hit it with a hammer.’ I love people like that, because they’re sort of aware of who they are. The first time he buzzed me in, the concierge called up [to his flat] and said, ‘Mr. Jones?’ Of course he’s Mr. Jones! He’s not f–king David Bowie! I met David Jones.”

Ricky was joined in the magazine by The Office U.S. star Ellie Kemper.

Ricky Gervais to Host Golden Globes 2012

Ricky Gervais will return to host the 2012 Golden Globe Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced.

“Just told Billy Crystal he’d better not use any of my holocaust or pedophile material at The Oscars. He agreed (true),” the 50-year-old English comedian jokingly wrote on his Twitter page about the 2012 Oscars host.

Next year’s Golden Globes ceremony, which will be held January 15 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, marks Ricky‘s third time as host – a year after he caused some controversy with his jokes during the 2011 telecast.

Ricky Gervais: 'Office' Cameo On The Way!

Ricky Gervais will make a cameo on next week’s episode of The Office, airing January 27!

The British funnyman, who portrayed David Brent in the UK version of the show, shot his spot back in September.

“It’s outside of the office, and it’s just the two of them interacting,” Paul Lieberstein, who plays Toby on the show, told Access Hollywood. “It’s just a little nod to Steve and his final year.”

“It’s a little more than if you blink, you’ll miss it, but if you don’t set your TiVo right, you’ll miss it,” Paul added.
