When commenting on his personal blog, Gervais writes:

    "Wow! I think there must be a leak at my accountants, I know it sounds a lot, but remember, I donate a lot of this to good causes.(The Inland Revenue mainly.)"

Gervais has made millions over the years with the British version of The Office, executive producing the U.S. version, as well as creating the HBO hit Extras.

As for how he'll be sharing his millions, he jokes:

    "I will have to get my family a million scratch cards each for Christmas. I have decided to use the rest of the money to take over Libya."

Ricky made headlines when he hosted the Golden Globes last month ... leaving viewers wondering if he went too far with his jokes. Oscar host Anne Hathaway was asked if she'll be using Gervais' hosting technique for the Academy Awards. Read her response .. after the jump.

Hathaway told the Hollywood Reporter, “I can guarantee that if you’re looking for someone to call people out, we’re not your hosts."
