Ricky Gervais, English actor, comedian and proud animal activist, is becoming known for his no-nonsense attitude toward animal cruelty. The funny man may make jokes for a living, but when it comes to animal activism, he’s dead serious.

In an interview with The Guardian, the 52 year-old talked about his love for animals in between cracking jokes. When asked what makes him unhappy, he replied, “Outside serious family tragedy, nothing. Ten things a day annoy me a bit. The only thing that really depresses me is animal cruelty.”

Despite Gervais’ sense of humor, he does have a softer side. When asked about the last time the funny man cried, his response was, “Over a YouTube clip about animals. ‘Laboratory animals see sunlight for the first time’ or ‘elephant mourns his best friend the goat’. I watch something like that every day and I’m always in pieces.” We can totally relate!

Gervais’ love of animals isn’t just for the ones being abused every day. He went on to explain his feelings about companion animals saying that having a dog would be the one thing that would improve his life right now. The thoughtful late night host hasn’t adopted a furry friend because he feels it would be irresponsible considering his hectic schedule.
