Did Ricky Gervais Get Plastic Surgery for the Golden Globes?

Has Ricky Gervais gone under the knife?  The perennial jokester has taken to Twitter to poke fun at Hollywood's obsession with staying young and being perfect.

Gervais recently tweeted a picture of himself jokingly implying he was about to get some work done at an unnamed plastic surgery and anti-aging center (with a distorted face to boot).

"Some last minute preparation so I don't look out of place at The Golden Globes," Gervais tweeted along with the below picture.

Ricky Gervais tweets funny pic of his "plastic surgery visit."

The comedian/actor/writer does not shy away from controversial subjects.  He created a media firestorm last year when he hosted the Golden Globes utilizing many of the celebs sitting in the audience as stand-up fodder.  So, many were stunned to hear that he was asked to host again this year.  But, back he is and curiously we wonder if he was targeting anyone in particular at his tweet - or just Tinseltown in general.

He has been using the social networking site to poke fun at his upcoming gig and to forewarn celebs.

"I keep having to write new jokes as I pick my victims, I mean targets I mean presenters to introduce," he joked.

It's no secret that many of today's top stars have often looked quite refreshed at award shows and premieres.  Some possibly using a little bit of "work" before the big red carpet walk.  But, Gervais, himself, was quick to point out that a facelift or Botox might not have been the cure for some stars' appearance on the big screen.

“Nothing for Sex and the City 2, " he quipped at the Globes last year.  "I was sure the award for best special effects would go to the team that airbrushed that poster.”

So, should we expect the same humor this year?

"No one knows what I'm going to say until I say it," he tweeted.  "That was my only stipulation to host again."

The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards is in four days.  Brace yourself, Hollywood.  You will probably need it.
