Ricky Gervais - Ricky Gervais Fears For U.k.'S Elderly
Ricky Gervais has slammed the treatment of old folk in his native U.K., insisting the country needs to pull together to help its ageing population.
The Office creator stars as a worker in a residential care home in his new self-penned comedy Derek, and researching the show gave him a chilling insight into the problems faced by Britain's older generations.
He tells The Sun, "No one cares about old people in this country. There is a sort of army of youth, but getting old is the one thing that will happen to everyone."
