Ricky Gervais said on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated) today that he's wary of fame, and he skewered those who attain celebrity and don't deserve it.

"I suppose what I feared was being lumped in with those people who do anything to be famous, those people who live their life like an open wound," Gervais said. "I think if you're going to be famous, you should be famous for something. I think there's a whole attitude now that there's no difference between fame and infamy. People do horrendous things and sell books on the back of it."
