Ricky Gervais has reportedly told Piers Morgan that he doesn't think he did anything wrong while hosting the Golden Globes but added that his girlfriend joked about them moving to Cuba.
According to the Hollywood Reporter in excerpts of his interview with Morgan on his new CNN show, the comic said that he's not sorry for his pointed jabs at Hollywood A-listers during Sunday night's ceremony.
He said: "I'm sorry if they were offended but I'm not sorry for anything I said.
"I don't think I did anything wrong. Those were, like, jibes at these people, and I'm sure they've got a sense of humour."
Among Gervais' insults during the Hollywood awards were when he introduced Bruce Willis as "Ashton Kutcher's dad" and suggesting that the team that air brushed the poster for 'Sex and the City 2' should get a Globe for "special effects."
He also poked fun at Charlie Sheen, scientologists, Hugh Hefner, Tim Allen and Robert Downey Jr, amongst others.
During the CNN interview, Gervais also joked that his longtime girlfriend Jane Fallon suggested he beat a hasty retreat after he completed what is sure to be his last Globes hosting gig: "She said, I've got the fast car. Here's the disguise and I have 2 tickets to Cuba."
Gervais added: "It's not my job to worry about what people think of me, that's the job of a politician. I don't care what people think of me.
"They hired me for a job and if they didn't want me, they shouldn't have hired me."
However a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which sponsored the awards show, told PopEater afterwards that they had fielded complaints from celebrity representatives.
HFPA President Phillip Berk added to The Hollywood Reporter: "He definitely crossed the line.
"And some of the things were totally unacceptable. But that's Ricky."
