EXCLUSIVE: Gervais: “I Don’t Brush My Teeth”
Ricky tells MTV how hes doing his bit to save the world
Ricky Gervais has stopped brushing his teeth in a big to help planet Earth, he has revealed.
Speaking backstage in an interview with MTV, while on stage Corinne Bailey Rae was busy bringing some soul, and a John Legend duet, to Wembley Stadium; the comedy heavyweight shared some Earth-friendly tips.
Asked if he thinks caring about the environment is a sexy issue, Ricky said: Well, I dont care about the environment and Im not sexy, he joked, so I guess it IS sexy to care about the environment!
No I do care a bit, of course I do. But I dont do enough. I recycle, Im a bit green. I dont leave the tap running when I clean my teeth, which annoys me cos I ilke to see it running. So what I do now is just not clean my teeth. Its perfect!
So theres lots of endangered species in my mouth.
On a slightly more serious note, Ricky added: I think everyone can do a little bit. I genuinely dont know how much difference the little things make, I dont think anyone does. But I air on the side of caution. Its like those people who say oh the fox doesnt mind being hunted! Lets air on the side of caution, lets assume its good to recycle.
And if were wrong and recycling is actually bad. At least our heart was in the right place.
Meanwhile back on stage, Corinne is putting Leeds on the Wembley map with her sweet songs and doing some cool arse shaking. Next up, its Keane. Oh good.
