In exclusive excerpts of his interview with CNN's Piers Morgan, the comic says that his girlfriend joked about moving to Cuba.

Ricky Gervais says he's not sorry for his pointed jabs at Hollywood A-listers during last Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.

"I'm sorry if they were offended but I'm not sorry for anything I said," Gervais told Piers Morgan during an interview Wednesday that will air Thursday on Morgan's CNN program.

"I don't think I did anything wrong," he continued. "Those were, like, jibes at these people, and I'm sure they've got a sense of humor."

Among Gervais' more searing insults during the annual Hollywood kudo-fest: introducing Bruce Willis as "Ashton Kutcher's dad" and suggesting that the team that air brushed the poster for Sex and the City 2 should get a Globe for "special effects."

During the CNN interview, Gervais also joked that his longtime girlfriend Jane Fallon suggested he beat a hasty retreat after he completed what is sure to be his last Globes hosting gig.

"She said, I've got the fast car," said Gervais. "Here's the disguise and I have 2 tickets to Cuba."

Also on Piers Morgan Tonight Thursday, Gervais said, "It's not my job to worry about what people think of me, that's the job of a politician. I don't care what people think of me."

"They hired me for a job, he added "and if they didn't want me, they shouldn't have hired me."
