Jennifer Lopez threatened Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais with physical violence if he poked fun at her as she took to the stage as a presenter at the ceremony on Sunday, January 16. Gervais' Globes comedy left a lot to be desired by many critics and celebrities, who have taken aim at the Brit for his mean-spirited banter - Tom Hanks and Robert Downey Jr. actually targeted the funnyman from the stage at the prizegiving.

But Lopez was determined not to be embarrassed by Gervais as she took to the stage with co-presenter Alec Baldwin. She explains, "We're about to walk out and Ricky shows up and I said, 'Listen, I will kill you, you understand. I am from New York, my husband fights... we both fight, we will beat you up after the show'. I said, 'Let me see your card...' He said, 'You're gonna love it'."

The singer/actress admits she was not offended by Gervais' "Jenny From the Block" gag, insisting, "It was funny". But she did feel for others who were savaged by the Brit. She tells Access Hollywood, "He's very gutsy. It takes a lot of guts to get up there and make the comments he made... I'm sure in his mind it was all in good fun... There were some awkward (moments). He may have hit one or two (jokes) below the belt... Some comments were tough."

Her obsession with being a tough street-fighting ghetto child is pathetic, she's worse than a rapper. As if she would risk the bad press.
