Fame Made Gervais Feel Fat

Subscribe to The Office alerts

The Office star Ricky Gervais had no idea people saw him as overweight until he found fame, because of the way the media describes him. The Golden Globe winner is tired of being described in a derogatory way - and the media glare interferes with his attempts to shed the pounds. He says, "I never knew I was fat until I got famous. Then I suddenly realised I was overweight. "The papers can't simply put 'comedian Ricky Gervais'. They have to put 'rotund comedian' or 'chubby fatster'. "The other day I was jogging with my iPod, and the paparazzi leapt out of a bush and got me. "The headline the next day? iPodge. What can you do?"
