Gervais dressed down by Madonna

Last night, Ricky Gervais was given a taste of his own medicine, as Madonna emerged victorious in a battle of wits between the two.

It was the third time the British comedian has hosted the Hollywood ceremony. Last year, the 50-year-old caused outrage with his gags, poking fun at many of the A-listers.

Although the funnyman’s act was seemingly toned down this year, the likes of Kim Kardashian and Jodie Foster came under fire. Before Madonna took to the stage to present the award for the best foreign language film, Gervais described her as still ‘like a virgin,’ in reference to her smash hit single.

However, Madonna didn’t hold back with her comeback.

‘If I’m just like a virgin Ricky why don’t you come over here and do something about it,’ she joked.  ‘I haven’t kissed a girl in quite a few years, at least not on TV,’ she said, in reference to her kissing Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the 2003 VMAs.

Madonna’s directorial debut, W.E., will be showing in UK cinemas from January 20th.
