Johnny Depp Mocks Ricky Gervais In Response To Golden Globes Jibes

Funnyman Ricky Gervais' mean-spirited Golden Globes jibes have come back to haunt him on his new British comedy show "Life's Too Short" - Johnny Depp has lashed out at him.
In the show, Depp agrees to a meeting with Gervais and his writing partner Stephen Merchant and immediately lets the Brit know he has still not forgiven for poking fun at his film "The Tourist" at the 2011 Golden Globes.
Flicking his cigarette ash into Gervais' glass of water, the movie star says, "I've just done another film that's gonna make loads of money, probably a lot more money than any film you've ever made."
He later tells the Brit that his friend and perennial co-star Helena Bonham Carter thinks "you're an idiot."
The hostility prompts the funnyman to ask, "Have I done something to offend you?" to which Depp replies, "What do you mean, like trash me in front of, like, 200 million people at the Golden Globes?"
Pretending to be upset, Gervais responds, "Those were jokes, Johnny."
Keeping a straight face, Depp leans across the table and tells the comedian, "I want you to know this and I want you to carry this with you for the rest of your days - no one makes fun of Tim Allen on my watch."
Gervais came under fire for remarks he made at the Golden Globes in January, particularly one that mocked Allen's talent. The comment prompted presenter Tom Hanks to defend his Toy Story co-star - he called the Brit's humor "mean-spirited."
