Having earlier introduced Bruce Willis as 'Ashton Kutcher's dad', he then went for Robert Downey Jr.

He started by listing his film credits but said Downey would be better known for his stays at ' the Betty Ford Clinic and the facility of the Los Angeles jail'.

When he came on stage Downey commented that it was 'mean spirited'.

Controversial: Host Ricky Gervais was full of quips, and a good few insults too, as he presided over the ceremony

Harsh: Gervais joked about Robert Downey Jr. time in rehab when he introduced him on stage while Social Network star Andrew Garfield tripped over his words when he appeared on stage to present an award

Downey then proceeded to suggest that he would sleep with all of the contenders in the best film actress in a comedy or a musical in front of his wife.

The award went to Annette Bening who was sitting with husband Warren Beatty.

Bening touchingly acknowledged her husband by saying she wanted to thank 'the 1962 winner of the most promising actor Golden Globe, my husband Warren Beatty'.

Michael Douglas and his wife Catherine Zeta Jones were led through a new empty ballroom at the Beverly Hilton so they could slip away with the minimum of fuss.

'No late nights', Douglas said to the Daily Mail as he left the ceremony.

The MailOnline shook hands with him, for the second time of the night, and while he's getting better the actor still seemed frail.

However his wife was all no nonsense and was eager to get him home to rest.

But as they were leaving the Beverly Hilton Michael Douglas and his wife were persuaded to stop by the joint party for The King's Speech and The Fighter.

The couple sat on a leather sofa in a quieter corner of the sprawling marquee erected at the back of the hotel.
