Ricky Gervais isn’t sexy, but he’s fine with it

There are alot of adjectives to describe Ricky Gervais, funny, clever, witty, just to name a few, but according to Gervais, himself, sexy isn’t one of them. The British comedian says he’s not sexy, but he’s ok with that.

The British comic star – who is in a long-term relationship with author Jane Fallon – has never thought of himself as an attractive man.

He said: “Looks are still the most important thing for women when it comes to meeting a partner. And that’s fair enough, but a sense of humour is really important too. For starters, it’s a great indicator of whether you are going to get on. If the first time you go on a date you don’t find each other funny, there’s a fundamental problem. Laughing at each other’s jokes is one of the keys to a good relationship.

“I don’t see myself as sexy but I am happy with that. I don’t think a comedian should even be concerned with being cool or sexy – as soon as you do, you aren’t a comedian any more.”

Russell Brand might beg to differ, although, Gervais might beg to differ that Brand is funny, I don’t know. There are definitely sexy comedians out there, Eddie Izzard, anyone? I’ve got a fire in silly places for Craig Ferguson that no number of lines on his face will douse. So just like regular joes, they don’t have to be gorgeous to be sexy. There is so much more to sexy than looks.

Ricky Gervais has been in a relationship with author Jane Fallon for so long he can’t remember what it was like to be single. He says women don’t throw themselves at him because he’s “not sexy”, but also because they know he’s taken.

Ricky also revealed he would hate to be single because he would have no idea how to approach a woman he liked.

He added to Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine: “Women certainly don’t throw themselves at me because I’m funny – they know I’m in a relationship anyway. I’ve been with my girlfriend Jane for so long now, I wouldn’t know where to start!

“I can’t even remember chatting anyone up!”

There is something intrinsically sexy about people who make you laugh and they have to really be unattractive to fight that fundamental allure. Rosie O’Donnell, not sexy. Lee Evans, hilarious, but not sexy. Ricky Gervais is not unattractive, but he often plays characters that have unattractive personalities or are otherwise unapproachable. But I’d be willing to bet there are some closeted Ricky-loonies who would love to make him stumble through some awkward chat-up lines.

Picture note by Celebitchy: Here’s Ricky Gervais shopping for antiques on 9/28 in London and out with his partner, Jane Fallon, on 7/27/08. He’s also shown in the header outside the Regis & Kelly show on 9/15. He looks so happy to be papped.

    Ricky Gervais may not be sexy by definition, but he rocks my world! Gimme a guy with a brain over a guy with a six pack ANY day!! :D

    Ricky is genius funny and that makes him attractive but yeah, he’s not sexy. But I think he’s wrong about women putting looks first. Sure, they’re a bonus, but only when accompanied by personality and wit. I’d do (and have done) most things for ‘funny’. :mrgreen:

  3. Kaiser says:

    I think Ricky *is* sexy – but I always fall for the weird ones who look like they’re into dirty stuff.

    Other sexy-because-they’re-funny men are Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. *swoon*

    Russell Brand may be funny but looking at him makes me nauseous. Gervais is a genius, he looks like my most annoying uncle but I still think he’s great.

    I can’t help having a soft spot for David Walliams (little Britain)

    I would be one of the closeted ricky loonies. I think he’s wonderful!

  7. Wow! What a site you have here. You have a real knack for making a tranny blog pleasing to the eyes and feeds fantasies very well. Some sites look like train wrecks, but not yours – its cock-hardening to view. I found your site while looking for something else about sexy trannies on Yahoo. But Ive bookmarked your website and will visit it regularly to read the latest. I find this luscious tranny scene a very titillating one. Seems like there is some new scenes to check all the time. Thanks again for a very enjoyable site!
