6 things we learned from Ricky Gervais' 'ask me anything'

Ireland is one of his favourite gigs.

RICKY GERVAIS WAS the latest celebrity to face the Reddit community.

The comedian took to the website yesterday to allow users to ‘ask him anything’.


Here are a few highlights:

1. He’d want Daniel Day-Lewis, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt or Meryl Streep to play him in a movie.


2. He reckons David Brent could beat Michael Scott in a fight.


3. His infamous ‘bath pic’ was conceived as a way to get more out of his hot water.
