[Want to hear more from Ricky Gervais? You can catch him on "Piers Morgan Tonight" on Thursday, January 20 at 9 p.m. ET.]
There's one person definitely not laughing at Ricky Gervais' Golden Globes jokes: Hugh Hefner.
The Playboy founder is fighting back following the comedian's jibes about his recent engagement.
"Talking of the walking dead, congratulations to Hugh Hefner, who is getting married at age 84 to 24-year-old beauty Crystal Harris," Gervais said at the January 16 awards ceremony. "When asked why she was marrying him, she said, 'He lied about his age. I thought he was 94.'"
Now it seems Hefner is getting the last laugh.
"I'm used to cheap shots. ... It goes with the territory," he tweeted Monday. "It's ironic that living with 3 young girls prompted a hit TV show, but marrying one prompts humor. Age is still just a number. Jokes about age will begin to seem lame as we all begin to live longer, fuller lives."
