The comedian had previously shot celebrities who complained about isolation in their luxury homes, and now he’s targeted the stars of the isolation clip.
The Wonder Woman star gathered his famous friends, including Natalie Portman, Will Ferrell and Amy Adams, to sing a version of the John Lennon classic to cheer up during the lockdown.
In an appearance on BBC 5 Live radio today, Ricky saved the stars from the video – labeling them self-help for being part of the project.
He said, “This Imagine video is not that bad, they are probably very nice people.
“It was a horrible interpretation, but they could have done it for good reasons, to help these normal nobodies.
“But they are going” My film is coming and I’m not on TV – I have to be in the public eye “, not all but some of them.
“You can see in their eyes -” I could cry at the beauty of my personality, I’m so beautiful to do that “and everyone sees it – we got it. “
Unrestrained, actor Derek added, “To begin with, you won’t hear me complaining – not when there are nurses working 14-hour shifts – and front-line workers chasing and risking their health.
” I’m fine. Don’t worry about me … I’m going for a walk on Hamstead Heath, and we have a garden. “
Proving that his thoughts are with others who are not as privileged as him, he said, “There are people in high-rise buildings with three children – I can’t complain, that’s why millionaires in their mansions with their gym and going for a swim can’t lecture people.
“People are tired of hosting conferences, multimillionaires telling them to clean their coffee pot and put it in the right bin – they know these celebrities are taking private jets to their private islands.” They are fed up with. “
Ricky’s latest comments reflect those he evacuated earlier this month.
Speaking to the Sun, Gervais said, “After it’s over, I never want to hear people complaining about the welfare state again, I never want to hear people complaining about nurses again. Or carriers.

“These people work 14-hour shifts and don’t complain. Wear masks and end up with sores after selflessly risking their own health and that of their family. ”
He then turned his wrath on celebrities who think they are having trouble, saying, “Then I see someone complaining about being in a mansion with a pool.
“And, you know, honestly, I just don’t want to hear it. “
Ricky is estimated to be worth over £ 100 million after successes with The Office and Extras set the stage for a Hollywood career before adding Derek and After Life to his sitcom resume.
