When Jimmy Fallon recently opened the door for Ricky Gervais‘ Twitter followers (a.k.a. “twonks”) to ask the star questions for a Tonight Show Web exclusive, the results were delightfully raw. For example, the comedian’s answer to the first query – “What is the dumbest thing you’ve ever done while you were drunk?” – began with the words: “I wee-ed on my girlfriend once…”
Ditto for Gold Derby’s Tuesday Twitter chat with the Emmy-nominated Derek star. To go along with the photo above of Gervais cradling his 2007 Best Comedy Actor Emmy for Extras, the comedian joked about who he should optimally kill for a win this year and promised to hit all the acceptance speech buttons:
@goldderby: If you win an Emmy [this year] will you: 1) Give a poignant speech? 2) Trash the joint like a frat house bash?
@rickygervais: I will trash the place, but I’ll do it crying and thanking God. Multi-tasking.
