Ricky Gervais: I Hate Exercising in Public

The creator of the award-winning series The Office says he and girlfriend Jane Fallon recently bought a place in New York with "a gym in the basement."
"So I never have to exercise in public," Gervais, 47, tells the November issue of Britain's Psychologies Magazine.
"My favorite thing in the world is to come home, have a swim, put my pajamas on and open a bottle of wine," he adds. "That's it for me."
Gervais, who tried his hand at being a pop star before stand-up comedy, writing and directing, also reflects on his love-hate relationship with mirrors.
"Twenty years ago, it was a joy. I used to love standing in front of the mirror going 'Yeah!' Now it's just disappointing," he says. "But I spent so much time looking at myself in my twenties, I'm probably just starting to break even."
