2011 was an interesting year. An appetizer to a much bigger leap/Olympic year in 2012.
I had a lot of lowlights and the odd highlight in 2011 interviewing people.
Early on in the year I managed to secure my lowest of lowlights…..or maybe it is a highlight. I managed to scare the heck out of Jennifer Aniston….
And then later on in the year I reckon I found the highlight when I ran into Ricky Gervais again. This could also be called a lowlight when reflecting on the language we both used on each other while standing on a red carpet. Already looking forward to him hosting the Golden Globes again in a few weeks.
What happened the other night at the Golden Globes was the spray Hollywood needed. And Gervais was the man to do it. A man who secretly loves Hollywood as seen with his use of Hollywood celebrities in Extras, he carried on that love affair the other evening in a way only he knows how; by stripping the stars back and smashing them. He must be chuckling to himself how he has managed to create a global controversy.
Here is one of my run-ins with Gervais for the premiere of his movie Ghostown where he aptly describes my head. WATCH…
