British comedian Ricky Gervais, after his funny impromptu gag at the Emmys, became the focal point of rumors claiming he was then going to host the Oscars. This weekend, he told BBC News he's not so sure about that ...

The "Office" star tells the news service:

"The star told BBC News he would be 'scared' to do it because 'I don't think I'd get the freedom I needed.'

"He added: 'If it was a fun night and they said you could ad-lib, I'd do it because I really enjoy that.'

"When asked if he would seriously consider the role he said: 'Probably not, or maybe I would, but I'd be scared that it would be arbitrary.' "
