Ricky Gervais opening monologue from the 2011 Golden Globe Awards...After the Golden Globe Ricky Gervais talked about things in an interview with CNN:"I don't care what people think of me," Gervais said in an interview airing Thursday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." "I care if I've done a good job, and I care if I've told the truth.""Comedy is laughing in the face of adversity," he said. "We use comedy as a sword, a shield, as a medicine, as a getting to know you. It's fundamental. It's a fundamental we understand comedy and we have humor, because it's built on empathy, and that's what being human is.""Don't forget, I've got to be an outsider," he said. "I mustn't come out there as everyone's mate and schmooze. That's nauseating. I've got to come out there, and I've got to roast them.""I wouldn't have it any other way, because if you start second-guessing and you're trying to find people that are like you, or change it to make certain people like you, you're finished," he said. "And you're finished as a comedian more than any other thing in the world."
