Playboy founder Hugh Hefner is one among the Hollywood celebrities, who were insulted by comedian Ricky Gervais with his jokes at the Golden Globe awards 2011. While others are cursing the comedian, the 84-year-old media mughal does not mind his jokes. He has ignored them stating that he is used to such cheap shots.
At the Golden Globes event, Ricky Gervais introduced the Playboy founder as "Speaking of the Walking Dead, congratulations to Hugh Hefner." On his twitter page, Hefner tweeted, "The Golden Globes was a blast. They made fun of everyone, including Crystal & me. A great night." Responding to Ricky's jokes, he wrote, "I'm used to cheap shots, Kendall. It goes with the territory."
Ricky Gervais had made a quip about the age gap between 84-year-old Hef and his 24-year-old fiancee Crystal Harris. Talking about it, Hefner tweeted, "It's ironic that living with 3 young girls prompted a hit TV show, but marrying one prompts humor." On his joke on his age, he further posted, "Age is still just a number. Jokes about age will begin to seem lame as we all begin to live longer, fuller lives."
However, Hugh Hefner had made a big headline after he announced engagement with Crystal Harris on his twitter page. He gave her a diamond ring as a token of his engagement on the night of Christmas Day. Hefner, who founded Playboy in 1953 with Marilyn Monroe as his first cover girl, has been married twice before.
