Paul McCartney Loves Ricky Gervais' Golden Globe Prank

Paul McCartney Loves Ricky Gervais' Golden Globe Prank

Ricky Gervais, who mocked Paul McCartney's divorce during 2010 Golden Globe Awards, feels relieved after knowing that the singer was not offended by him and loved the joke.

Ricky Gervais was scared he'd offended Paul McCartney when he mocked his divorce from Heather Mills onstage at the Golden Globe Awards, until the former The Beatles sought him out backstage and told him he loved it. The audience at the starstudded Hollywood bash gasped when Gervais referenced the break-up during his risque monologue.

The funnyman said, "We were on the same plane to get here. I was in first and he was behind me in coach... Well, he spent a lot of money last year." TV cameras cut away before McCartney's reaction could be seen, prompting speculation the joke upset him.

But Gervais insists the pop legend has a great sense of humor. The comedian writes on his blog, "I was worried about the Paul McCartney line but then he came backstage and hugged me and said he loved it, so that was OK."

    The word is dose and at least Gervais didn't have the lack of sense to marry a demented, attention seeking, one legged, gold digger and get fleeced for millions.
