Mel Gibson Knew Ricky Gervais Was Going to Call Him a Drunk

Popular consensus in our apartment says that Ricky Gervais's introduction for Mel Gibson ("I like a drink as much as the next man... unless the next man is Mel Gibson") was the highlight of Sunday's Golden Globes. Even Mel Gibson thought it was funny! Mike Fleming reports that Gervais called the actor beforehand and told him what to expect; Gibson laughed and agreed to play along (Fleming does not say if Gibson had been drinking at the time).
