New American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez said she was so afraid controversial Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais would make a mean crack about her, so she pulled him aside back stage to try to scare him.
"He's very gutsy, it takes a lot of guts to get up there and make the comments he made and go for that type of comedy," she tells Access Hollywood
. "I'm sure in his mind it was all in good fun. But in the room, being in the room it was like, eek... Then, when I go backstage to present, I'm backstage with Alec
], we're about to walk out, and Ricky shows up. I say, 'Listen! I will kill you, you understand, I am from New York, my husband fights, we both fight, we will beat you up after the show... with a couple of bleep bleeps in there."
In the end, he made a crack about her extravagant spending habits, but she said she didn't mind it.
"I scared him," Lopez later told Ellen DeGeneres on her show. "He was scary, though."
