Gerard Butler's Middle Finger Salute

Gerard Butler's Middle Finger Salute

Scottish hunk Gerard Butler rings in the new year with a middle finger salute, partying in Miami’s South Beach on Monday night.

Gerard‘s next film, Nim’s Island, is set for an April 4, 2008 release. Nim (Abigail Breslin) is a young girl who imagines an island to be magical, basing its mystic nature on the experiences of her favorite fictional character, Alex Rover (Butler). When Nim’s father goes missing on the island, Nim teams up with Alexandra (Jodie Foster), the author of the Alex Rover books and Rover himself.

Have a Gerry-ful New Year!

Classy.

# 3

Who is he…must be a nobody.

# 4

Gerard you ROCK.

# 5
haylie is dumb @ 01/01/2008 at 6:56 pm

yo haylie…he is not a nobody. he was the lead in 300 as well as in Phantom of Opera…check your sources.

# 6

Far from a nobody.

# 7

what a deception, i liked him.

# 8

He is a greek god

# 9

#3 Why do you say that? Because you personally never heard of him? Actually he’s the star of “300″ one of 2007′s most successful films. A movie I feel is a bit overrated but he was good in it. Personally I think its cool he has the chutzpah to make his attitude towards the paps well know from the get-go, as opposed to plastering a fake smile on his face. Granted it’s not the classiest move but then neither are the people he’s targeting.

LIFE AFTER @ 01/01/2008 at 7:06 pm

i need to tell him to stop that…

LIFE AFTER @ 01/01/2008 at 7:06 pm

or else i will spank him

why HE IS SO FUVKING HOOOOT. HE IS SO SEXY AND SO YUMMY

#5 Get some class, its my opinion that i dont like him, i know who the hell he is, so go shove it up your ass. Your the dumbass, wow i swear people on this site get more and more stupid.

He’s also in the current P.S. I Love You.

Happy New Year to you too darlin!

THIS IS SPARTAAAAAA

Butler is a jerk! Must believe his own publicity. (And he wasn’t even good in Phantom of the Opera.)

THIS. IS. FINGAH!

Gold flecks search green flecks….
Anybody else feel like mushroom soup??

Chegs-HUn @ 01/01/2008 at 7:38 pm

And who is the woman with him this time? Check picture no.2. – there’s an arm around his waist. That stupid pap should have taken a photo of her, too. ;)
And yeah, it’s a bit of a deception – even if he doesn’t like paparazzi and he wasn’t sober (I suppose), this is quite ungentlemanly behaviour :(

totally heart him!

I wouldn’t want King Leonidas mad at me! I wonder what the papparazzi said to him to elicit that response.

Alexanderina @ 01/01/2008 at 7:49 pm

Love him, thanks Jared

*rolls eyes* Totally unnecessary.

not too hyped about the movie but i’m sure he’ll prove his acting chops once again.

http://paidandpopular.com

He looks like he’s on something. And the finger thing is silly and stupid.

Justins t cousin @ 01/01/2008 at 7:57 pm

love him

bad boy……;)

TAN SUITS HIM!

LIFE AFTER @ 01/01/2008 at 8:22 pm

who’s this lucky girl…

I hate it when stars throw the finger,I always take it as an insult. It makes me not want to spend money on their movies.

Life After, are you crazy??? There’s no girl in any of the pics!

Class, that’s just what I like to see with a 38 year old man. Real class act. Yuk.

Just what I like to see with a 38 year man. Maturity; real class act. Yuk.

craig stairs @ 01/01/2008 at 9:00 pm

another nobody.

sometime they’re just stupid

LIFE AFTER @ 01/01/2008 at 9:10 pm

georgina- look @2 pix her arm is there in his waist…i do not like her already

It’s nice to see photos of stars but at what expense to their privacy.
So we are to think that Gerard Butler doesn’t have any class – what about the photographers stalking him and other stars? That gesture to me only means his privacy was invaded.

Justins t cousin @ 01/01/2008 at 9:19 pm

Comment 41 so right

LOL, he was at a public party at the vip section, had to know there would be photogs there, so what privacy was he expecting?

Hmmmmm….I think he’s saying, “P.S., I Don’t Love You.”

He looks like he is drunk. Yeah, he was the king guy in 300, but it was the movie that was a hit. I never heard no one say it was bcz of him. It was the story, and all the art and special effects like you never saw before. That is why 300 was so good. He just played a role. There were other actors who were good in it, too. Maybe even better than him. I checked him out and he did a movie with Pierce Brosnan that went straight to video, and he was in the new Hilary Swank movie, except no one even talks about his character except to say he was there. LOL!!! So as far as I’m concerned, he is only C-list…if that. He is probably haqppy to be getting paid. But he seems like he is arrogant. And he has nothing to get arrogant about.

From the block @ 01/01/2008 at 9:39 pm

It’s not a great shocker if Haylie doesnt know him. Not everybody seen’300′ .

I don’t know Anon, Gerard WAS King Leonidas. He became Leonidas. He made you want to follow him into battle. I don’t know any actors who could have pulled what Gerard did. 300 would have had a different effect with anyone lesser in strength and appearance.

Gerard looks good pissed off.

I think Gerry looks way older than 38 and is acting like a spoiled child. When he does things like this, he is insulting his fans and he should remember that his fan base is what carries his success. He wouldn’t have what he has if he didn’t have his fans.
Grow up Gerry, your diaper is showing.

Gerry is yummy and has historically, always been cool w/paparazzi. I think he’s just finally giving them a taste of their own medicine. Remember, paparazzi are usually the ones initiating these types of reactions, flipping off these types of stars first. It’s a money shot!

well hes sexy and hes ctually a nice guy. the paps must have done something to get that reaction or else he was sh*tfaced since it was new years eve.

he can go all spartan on me with his finger any day

Holly golightly @ 01/01/2008 at 10:48 pm

Though 300 had a lot going for it, Butler was Leonidas, period!
Most of the reviews on PS I Love You have been kind to Butler, if not the movie, so that is a bunch of crap! Butler’s performance was not what sent the other movie straight to DVD.

Giving someone the finger is perhaps not the classiest thing to do, but he owes his fans a good performance and that’s it….also period!

hes an ass pffft

Gerard, you are far too beautiful to be doing something so ugly.

This guy looks like he reeks of alcohol and cigarettes. Kind of that dirty bum thing. I don’t dig it.

he is still sex on a stick !

everybody does that. get over it!

Gerard’s great! and his middle finger is great too!

Love him!

Just to let everyone know, Gerard has not had a drink in 10 years and he quit smoking 8 months ago. He’s a fine actor and human being, who was probably being pestered by the razzi. Who know, maybe one of the photogs made an insulting comment about his his new film PS I Love You, which the critics hate, but audiences love.

postwatcher @ 01/02/2008 at 2:09 am

If Gerry doesn’t drink, then why is he at ALL the trendy clubs?

Don’t DRINK, Don’t Smoke….What does he do? I am sure it is something!

Yeah…. he’s a work-a-holic!

haha, i think someone got a little too wasted on new years eve!

#57 sounds like they’re trying to come off as “in the know” .. get over it.

This info is readily available in Gerard’s public interviews, and articles about him. He’s been very open about his former drinking problem, and his battle to quit smoking.

CHUCKECHEESE @ 01/02/2008 at 2:48 am

Why would a person go to a place where it is known that paparazzi would be hanging around trying to get pictures of guests and then flip them off? This is the public image he must want to convey.

#62 is sounding like he’s #57 and neither of you two actually know him, you just troll on his info and research him like an obsessed stalker-oo. why don’t you focus on the people in your actual life.. like what your uncle or sister is up to and get. a. life. :)

boopboopteedo @ 01/02/2008 at 5:56 am

Rude, Crude, Lewd.

Too bad not also Newd !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, that man can give the finger. Thud.

Betty

He is an ass! And I don’t care how long he was supposed to be sober, he looks wasted in these pictures. And why was he in South Beach of all places! Was he there to see thm “lower the shoe?” LOLOL!!!! I saw 300 and all he did was run around in a jockstrap screaming at people. He looks like he spits when he talks. Ewww!
He didn’t make me want to follow him anywhere much less in battleLOL!!!! I liked those two young actors better. And the guy who’s son got killed? And the guy from Lord of the Rings. David Wenham. Butler got on my nerves with his screaming. The special effects in 300 were totally hot. Butler…not so much.

he’s damn sexy (esp in 300), but why this middle finger?

I just checked out the other photos/articles of Gerard Butler on Just Jared & you can see he has been decent to the paparazzi – not one finger picture in any of them. This has not been his pattern. Cut the guy a break. He just looks mad as hell. So I can’t help wonder what was said to garner that response.

This is not the first instance where he as flipped the bird. He did it more than once during his press junket for 300, and not just to the razzis.

Who knows exactly what went on with these pictures. But the point is that the razzi don’t have a “public” so they just behave how they want to get a picture. I know enough about Gerry to believe the press that he’s stopped drinking – me too – and I go anywhere anyone else goes – don’t have to stay away from clubs. He’s hot and he’s on the prowl – duh. I just think he’s smarter than he appears in these photos. Rethink this Gerry – is it so bad that you can’t just ignore the guys – are you so bereft of resources that you must demean yourself to your fans?

I’d be ***************** too, if people were following me around and invading my privacy all the time.

Yeah, I know…public event, yada yada yada. It still doesn’t make it right. Doesn’t he have the right to go to a party on HIS DAY OFF, just like everybody else?

Public event like this = press and paparazzi present. That is the way of the world. Either roll with it or stay home.

The more ‘fans’ you bring aboard that brings your popularity up-expect more from the angle of the press that want to show you off. Your ‘fans’ buy the photographs taken.

Can you really believe this is the same humble person who was proud of showing off his mother at his premiere to a person who wouldn’t care if his mother see him flick off people-even if they are paparazzi?

thatgirlxo @ 01/02/2008 at 11:05 am

i want to be that girl with him. one night stand with gerard butler, woo hoo! haha

Welcome in the shithole again, Butler. Go drunk, that’s very wise movment for a “recovered” alcoholic. Recovered-my-ass.

Naaaa I don’t think he looks drunk … he looks rough and his eyes are puffy… he’s probably been crying LOL It is hard to think this is the same sweet seeming guy we saw in pictures with his darling mom in LA. I hope he figures out how to handle this razzi situation cause I doubt he’s quite a big enough celeb to be so indignant about the celebrity press. Gerry…. methinks thou dost protest too much!

So he has been crying for last six months, without a break., because he has that swollen face and puffy, bloodshot eyes that long. Or maybe even longer.

IMHO the cutest thing he could do when approached by these types of razzi is look behind him… as if to say “oh wow, who’s here that you are photographing….are you guys really taking a picture of little old moi…..” that would endear him to everyone… wise up Gerry!

What an *****. He must be starving for attention. Shattered and PSILY were box office bombs and this is how he shows his appreciation.

Keep smoking Gerry. You already look older than my granddad.

What did they say to get this reaction some posts have asked – well my answer would be “Gerry where’s the hooker tonight”

Remarkably, he’s both ghetto and eurotrash! His handlers should tell him to stop playing with the tabloids/papparazzi. They always have a way of bringing “out” certain issues.

Or they could have just shouted “hey Gerry how many new year’s resolutions have you made”

At comment #82. You obviously don’t know your facts. If you don’t know what you’re talking about, just be quiet and shut your mouth.

For your information, he quit the smokes months ago. And PSILY opened the same day with other big box office movies, so its understandable that it wouldn’t top the charts. And considering that its a romantic comedy, its not going to appeal to just about everyone. And yet, the movie is still holding strong and has had dramatic increase in sales within the past weeks.

And how is he starving for attention, when its obvious that the paparazzi are the ones following him and must have provoked him somehow.

Grow up and stop making childish remarks. None of you would have the guts to say some of these ignorant comments to his face, because you know he would knock you right upside the head.

I guess it makes you all feel good about yourself for making such remarks. That’s fine. If its to make you feel better about your life, then go ahead. When the haters start to come out, you know he’s making it big. :)

Sorta immature for a man nearly 40….that’s his tip-of-the-hat to his fans….lame. He nows paps will publish his every movement.

Not very mature. Eventhough he’s giving the middle finger to the idiots that made him mad. It’s actually the fans that are on the receiving end of that. Sounds like he’s not handling the 12th minute of his 15 minutes of fame very well. I knew he would do something to screw it up for himself. What will he do when they (the paparazzi) follow him around and rummage through his trash? I feel it’s a violation of the celeb’s privacy when they do that. However, he chose the career and the ugliness that comes with it. He should’ve been the fine actor that he’s considered to be and handled whatever they threw at him with a little more class. People, we may have another Sean Penn on our hands.

Let’s put the blame for his behavior where it belongs–BLAME THE TARTS!

It’s their fault the movie bombed-and it did by Box Office records–and he’s NOT given up the smokes–no matter what you’ve been told.

And Paparazzi is just doing their job.

Who are the tarts????? According to the latest numbers PS I Love You is not a bomb. Numbers are very good.

TARTS is the name of his mindless fan base that love nothing about his talent, but love his Scottish accent and ‘Hot Body’.

Box Office: Domestic Total as of Jan. 1, 2008: $27,901,562–Rather Lame

If he’s such a big shot in the Hot actor Field that should have been the total from the first weekend–not just the entire time since the 21 of Dec.

#91 As far as the Box office for PSILY being pretty lame.
Take a look a Johnny Depp’s – highly reviewed and nominated film Sweeney Todd movie’s box office –as of Jan 1 it was only $30,609,858.
Sweeney Todd opened with over 9.5 million to PSILY 6.4 million. Sweeney Todd Box office numbers have decreased during this same time period while PSILY #’s have increased even without the critics & nominations to bring in the audience to 27,901,562.
I guess you need to say Johnny Depp is not such a hot shot actor since he can’t kept the audience coming in to see Sweeney Todd and that would be just ridiculous.
Give Butler a break he has a fan base – and it is not only because he is hot looking – he is a very talented actor and he is just getting started. And, you don’t have to go to any of his movies if you don’t like him that’s your right.

he’s just great, everybody can have a bad hair day…

O, that what he does here is really immature. So he has the comments he deserved. I have a lot of warm feelings toward Gerard, but I hate him that way.

That what really pisses me off are his brainless fans who don’t want to see that something wrong is happening with him. Come on, he looks intoxicated. His face is swollen, his eyes are bloodshot. He’s an alcoholic. Now, do your math, people and stop repeating how wonderful he is. Because now he is not wonderful. He’s deep in ****.

You put Gerard and Johnny in a room and ask a group of 100 girls whose who and I bet because Johnny has been in the industry much longer that Gerard that they would know him.

Gerard is burning candles at both ends where Johnny has reached a point where he can bring them in or doesn’t Pirate of the Carribean mean something to you?

When was the last time Johnny Depp went full force to the press and gave them the finger?

He’s starting to believe his own press thank to his nutty fans.

He needs to take a break-go on vacation-get back to Reality. He’s just another actor who is passing on his looks and backed by crazed fans.

have seen him act, not many better around. he brings depth and emotion to all his roles. don’t care what he looks like.

Gerard Butler is one of the hottest stars in Hollywood since 300, this according to numerous popular magazines. He has established his position as a male lead with excellent performances and has an enormous fan base, which explaines the razzi’s interest in him.

It does not take a stalker with no life to know that Gerard is quite open about his past with alchohol and the fact that he has been dry for over 10 years. He also recently stated that he had quit smoking shortly after filming ‘PS I Love You’ because playing a man who dies so unexpectedly had quite an effect on him. He felt it was important to take better care of himself.

For those who have accused him of drunkeness, well your eyes must come equiped with breathalizers if you can look at those photos and determine him drunk . Is it possible he was tired? I am also a non-drinker and know that going out with my friends is reason enough to go to a club. And where does the smoking enter the picture, because there is ciggy butt on the ground? Have you ever walked past one?

The “finger” is not the most tactful of gestures, to be sure. I personally find it unappealing, however I know that it can also be used in jest, as Gerard has been known to do on other occasions.

This really boils down to a man who is known for being exceptional to his fans, generous with charities, kind to his co-workers and a squared away individual who is still single and enjoys a healthy social life, going out one night and gesturing the razzi for reasons we cannot fully know.

Was it his best move? Maybe not, but for a man who has done an aweful lot to earn respect, I hardly think it equates to reason for harsh judgment.

Something else being reported, Gerard has suffered from back to back chest infections, while filming GAME in New Mexico. Give the guy a break!

Gerard is wonderful and talented actor. 99% of the time he laughs and jokes around with the papparazzi; I’ve seen the videos of it.

Like Suz said earlier the papparazzi don’t have anyone taking pictures of what they are doing. It’s obvious something happened here, but geez don’t we all have our bad days. Give the guy a break.

OH! Give the guy a break? If he’s not drunk, but tired then maybe he should have stayed home with his dog instead of some date.

Also his “Charity” work is do to all his cult-like fans who pay collect the money to keep his website open, who pay for the planting of the trees, who collect for the kids with Cancer. He does nothing, but pick the charity to be on his behalf. Just check out e-bay for all the ‘charity’ things people are chucking up there. Blankets, signed stuff, ect.

Hey a talented actor, sexy on the eyes, and has an accent…..now that he has the finger trick (done several times-some without involving paparazzi) down we can now graduate him to the Colin Farrell School of Acting.

His campaign for the trees, cancer charities, his pup… boy Colin, you sure have this man’s info down pat for someone who is not a fan.

Could you per chance be a jealous husband or are you disgruntled because he’s not batting for your team?

I don’t like “the finger” either, but since when does using it equate to destroying hotel rooms and physically attacking razzi like Ferrell and Depp?

It’s a matter of time before we hear of Gerard and destructive ways and who says ‘Colin’ isn’t a cover for a chick? Duh!

Gerard is directly involved with many of the charities he supports. Are you aware that he called a young boy who was dying of cancer, and spoke to him on the phone for 20 minutes. The boy died 2 hours later, and claimed that Leonidas was his hero. Gerard has done many things to help others. Do not judge the man’s character by a few photos. Anyone who wants to know what kind of man he really is, will discover that he’s a hard working actor who is greatly respected by his peers and fellow actors.

Colin, would really like to know what your problem is. If you dislike the man so much, why are you reading this board??

What I cannot understand is why his flicking “the bird” is such a HUGE deal? Has no one else on this board ever done that before? I for one have done it before – not my proudest moment – but it didn’t stop me from doing it again…you know those moments of anger where you need/want to do something – so you give someone the finger! It’s better than turning violent!

I understand that celebrities should expect to give up a certain amount of their privacy when they enter into this profession but haven’t we invaded their personal space a bit too much now?

Point of clarification about Gerry’s reputation for *****************: I have seen only one other picture of him doing it. I was sitting 15 feet in front of him at WonderCon when at a panel discussion a question was posed having to do with contemporary political implications of the movie 300.
Zack Snyder fielded the question though it might have been asked of Gerry – but to my recollection, that is when he flipped the guy off – of course cameras caught the gesture…we just laughed about it – so did he.
The current incident at this one at WonderCon should not constitute a reputation for flipping people off…let’s keep it real. And Gerry – keep your hands in your pockets when you’re around the razzi – OK??

He called a dying child and it was reported by him. Not for the kindess of the act only, but for the press it brought to him. Why didn’t he just keep the good-hearted moment to himself?

The ‘Finger’ has been done by atleast 4 times

At Wondercon while on the panel
At the 300 Premiere
At Dressed to Kilt in 2005
New here on New Year’s Eve

Why am I here? I’m here to comment of this dummy who gave the finger to the camera. This is will do wonders for his career when it comes to these ‘heartfelt’ and ‘kid friendly’ related movies he’s has out.

WRONG! Gerard did not report his kind act to the child with cancer. The man in charge of Kids Kicking Cancer quietly sent a letter to one of Mr Butler’s fansites, to let them know about the event. It was NEVER reported in any article or news story.

Yes Tom – it was Rabbi Elemich Goldberg, Founder and National Director of Kids Kicking Cancer – not Gerry. He has never spoken of it.

Tom, get real man. I love that guy but come on… . His eyes are visibly bloodshot. Do you see these broken veins in his right eye? Do you see his bloated face and puffy eyes? What kind of exhausting work he was doing a day before to look that bad?

I smell troubles here.

Witch, I share your concern and did see his very bad right eye. But upon enlarging the photo I did notice that it was only in one eye and not in both. Possibly some kind of injury? When I’m ****faced BOTH my eyes look bloodshot. He looked to me light he just got off a plane – no he didn’t look good – but I like rough LOL

Suz, he has been wearing that bloated face and puffy eyes for months. I know something wrong has been happening with him. And, as he is alcoholic I can’t exclude the possibility that he has started to drink, no matter how much I want it to be untrue.

And Suz, his both eye whites are pink,. Bad sign if you ask me.

What I mean folks, if he has really troubles with drinking again, the last thing on the whole world he needs is the blind defence. Think about that, “fans”.

Colin…I am NOT asking why you are here but HOW it is that you know every detail about Gererd (however slanted )? Your information cant be gathered by a simple check of his websites, you seem far too aware of his every move. Are you sure you are not a stalker? Have you been looking jealously over your wife’s shoulder?

As Colin no doubt knows, Gerard’s family lives in Scotland where he spent the holidays. Jet lag and airline travel could easily account for the broken blood vessel in his eye and appearant fatigue.

Those bloodshot eyes could mean steriod use too, along with the puffy face. I hope not but he did bulk up very fast for 300 and now for Game. It’s wonderful the work that Gerry’s fans do in his name for his charities. Gerry can barely say thank you for the thousands of dollors raised in his name.

http://www.gerardbutler.net/news/Print.php?NewsID=2654

It was reported in their news section (above link). If they didn’t want to world to know it–why not just share it with their members only section like some of his other stuff is?

_____________________________

Not a stalker-not a man, though if I was-don’t think Gerry wouldn’t pounce on me with some Sparta love-I’m just infomed in the Industry-K. There is no need to post a comment about someone and know nothing about the person they are talking about.

______________________________
Drunk or not Drunk-that is not the question. Jet lag or no jet lag is still not the question. We don’t have to ask why he gave the finger–just comment on the person behind the finger gesture. Is this role model to our youngsters?

Don’t like the press-stay home.
Don’t want press-QUIT ACTING

Is this a role model to our youngsters?

Well..if you want to base your judgement on one picture…or a few, like they show here…then perhaps not. I certainly don’t think so.
BUT, is it really fair to judge a person by one bad picture?

I don’t like the *****************-thing, I wouldn’t do it myself, ever!
But it’s his choice, and besides that…we do not know the situation here!
Besides…we all do things we’re not proud of later.
Nobody can deny that!

I happen to be a tart, or a Gerard Butler fan. Which doesn’t mean I only pay attention to the looks and accent. I’m not that superficial.
He can act, he’s great at it actually. But that doens’t mean that I love everything he does….wether it’s in his acting or in real life.

Let’s just be realistic here…People….He’s only human….

….and he shouldn’t be judged based on this one thing (he did a few times, I know)!!

But that’s just my opinion of course.

Ok Colin, I am deducing that you are an older woman because of your term youngsters. It seems that you have mastered the art of contradiction completely.

Here is your quote (with spelling correction), “Not a stalker-not a man, though if I was-don’t think Gerry wouldn’t pounce on me with some Sparta love-I’m just informed in the Industry-K. There is no need to post a comment about someone and know nothing about the person they are talking about.”

So ‘Colin‘…. You have made comments about the man, tell me how well do you know him personally to be able to make these rude and unsubstantiated comments?

When has Gerry EVER said he wanted to be a role model for ANYONE! He is a man that is living HIS life and no one else’s it is plain and simple.

I highly doubt that his flipping off someone would come as a surprise to his mother. She knows exactly who he is and loves him dearly no matter what. He is the first to admit his faults for crying out loud. Give the guy a break and the rest of us.

Blame the Tarts? Is that the blanket excuse for when you have nothing better to say? Shame on you. You seem to know a lot about what goes on with him and the website. What happened did you get kicked off for bad behavior? Is that is why you are coming off as so bitter?

Pukkie I agree with you, you can’t base a persons character on a couple of pictures when we have no idea what was happening at the time.

Yes he has been sick lately, whose to say that the medication he has needed hasn’t had adverse side effects? No one knows for sure and it is just plain rude to speculate the worst about a person no matter who they are.

Gerry is a contradiction in all he does and he would be the first to admit that as well. He works hard at what he does giving it his all.

True fans don’t blindly sweep things under the carpet, never have never will, but they will care about him no matter what. There is nothing wrong about looking for the good in people, maybe some of the people here should try it for a change.

“True fans don’t blindly sweep things under the carpet, never have never will”

Oh, really? So what are you doing now?

arrogant and cocky! makes me sick! so unattractive.

big time loser!!!

Jeez Witch how long did it take you to come up with that brilliant comment? Obviously you just don’t get it.

There is no sweeping going on here. If you understood the written word you would understand that there are a multitude of reasons for everything. Just because you wear the “Let’s Find Something Ugly About Everyone” badge that doesn’t mean that I am sweeping anything under the carpet. This is your problem not mine.

Unless you are following him around 24/7 there is no one that know for sure anything about him. I am simply saying, why is it that everyone finds it so easy to just accept the worst about people? An why on earth do you find fault with any kind gestures he might make. There is something very wrong with that. I don’t care what the motives are, what is important is the outcome. Making a young man happy before he died, or making a call to a young woman facing the certain death of her mother.

Let’s just say for the sake of discussion that he is drinking, which I DON’T believe is the case, that doesn’t mean that I would see him any differently. Nor does that mean I would be sweeping a problem under the carpet nor making excuses. Believe it or not, it really is possible to care for a person unconditionally. IF he is in trouble, he is smart enough to take care of it and there are a lot of people willing to support him.

If there was a medical condition, what good would come of all the nasty spiteful comments that seem to be so easily spewed here.
Humanity…something that appears to have been forgotten on this board, here is a reminder…

1. human race: the human race considered as a whole
2. qualities of human being: the qualities or characteristics considered as a whole to be characteristic of human beings
3. kindness: kindness or compassion for others

Again you have no idea what is going on in that picture, none of us that weren’t there does, but it is sad that you and others would rather think the worst of a person and the situation.

Still waiting for an answer Colin. How do you know every last detail about Gerard and his website?

You confess to being a woman and then make some outragous statement about “Sparta love” implying that Gerard is gay… Here is another example of bitterness and ridicule from your fingertips that seems far beyond anything that merely “*****************” should create.

You are “informed in the industry”? LOL

What is your REAL problem with the man?

No one really gets kicked off at the site and even more to disturb you is that I’m one of the Forum Moderators for that site. You may not understand the language in the forum I monitor-but its clear that even a ‘TART’ or ‘FAN’ of Gerard can spot a mile a way that his bad behavior has turned for the worse where he things just giving someone the finger will make others want to runaway.

You can be a fan or Tart of his and not be able to turn a glimpse of reality that you can bad mouth ones behavior when its bad.

You had your say-he can do no wrong in your eyes-so move on. And I think it’s that having fans seek him out 24/7 that is part of the problem.

It isn’t the first time he’s done it–and won’t be the last-so I’ll join the ‘whatever’ bandwagon. See you over @ the unoffical site! :-)

I think I might know who you are now “Colin” and I’m not so sure it is the “main” site that you work for but one of the smaller ones… either way, with your bitter attitude, you clearly need to move on and find some other site to influence. I hear Brittany is looking for support. Okay, that was just snotty, but you really are cold and assuming and it brings out my darker side.

I said before and I will say again, since you apparently were not reading clearly, I do not condone all the man does and the choice to do this was poor. My point is that you and otbers have taken it “300″ steps further and accused the man of all kinds of bad behavior.

Shame on you!

Pictures speak louder than words people. Tired – Yes. Bloodshot eyes – Yes. Rude – Yes. Bloated – Yes. Tired looking – Yes. Talented – Yes.
He’s an actor FGS – not a saint. He’s also said he’s a bad boy and he’s human. So let’s leave it at that and say no more.

K-don’t let the link to the other site fool you. I am talking about his site at http://gerardbutler.net and all the fun extras you get for being a part there-

Exclusive Gallery Sections
Fan Video Over 18 Contest
Fan Created Music Videos
Exclusive Comicon Videos

ect….

The bad behavoir is clear to see by everyone-no one has to comment on it. Shame is on him-not us. :-)

Wow. All this over the finger? You’ve got to be kidding me. Who gives a damn if he flips someone off evey second of the day? You people. And that makes you all weird. I live in NYC and I see people getting flipped off everyday. It’s practically a form of currency. Maybe it’s just where I’m from. I guess I should buy a poodle skirt and move to Pleasantville next to you guys.

Luciana,
A voice of reason. I bow to thee.

K from Pleasantville signing out.

I couldn’t give a flying rats **** if he is ***************** that is not the issue I take. It is the accusing him off all sorts of crap that is just rude, and you Colin what the heck are you doing on a fan site when you obviously have no loyality and have no qualms of raking him through the mud. You are a sorry one. So “whatever” to you, you aren’t worth the time of day.

Luciana… what a hoot. Betty… bravo

There is loyalty and stupidly. Do you have to 100% loyalty
to someone and not be able to be objective of them?

Loyal is knowing you can hold a different view of someone
for their actions and stupidly is thinking Gerry gives a darn what you think of him as long as he wrangles in people to see his movies and bring his rating on polls and they post positive message on fan and news sites.

You really don’t understand anything you read do you. And why the heck to do remain a part of the site you supposidly moderate? Be bold what is your GB name so we can all see who is bashing him. Now that would made for an interesting thread.

A person can most certainly be loyal to someone even if they don’t agree with everything they do. You wouldn’t know what being loyal is if it bit you in the butt. I hope your family is as loyal to you as you are to him and the site. I hope when you do something that they don’t feel is right they show you the same consideration you are showing Gerry and that would be NONE.

The more you talk the less you say…

thetruthhurts @ 01/05/2008 at 12:10 am

Its a shame that little Abigail Breslin has more class, poise, self respect and maturity than her middle-aged European co-star.

L — I can’t believe you haven’t figured out who I am from all the time I’ve spent in the Chatroom.

Colin, I’ve no idea who you are, but given how you REALLY feel about this man…. why don’t you resign as a moderator? Seems to me, if you really dislike him that much, you could find better things to do with your time.

Wow, you’ve really stooped to a new low Colin. Its a shame that you’re supposedly moderating over at the site… seeing the vulgar remarks you’re making about Gerry… and from what… a photo of him flipping the paparazzi off for something that you and I don’t even know what’s going on.

Stop beating around the bush and just reveal your GB name. If you have so much guts as to openly bash him, then it shouldn’t be a problem at all revealing who you are. And if you don’t like the guy, why waste your time with the site? Its people like you who tend to focus on the negatives, and always try and bring someone’s spirit down.

Well O, very astute observations. But can I take exception to your assertion that it takes guts to openly bash Gerry? Sorry dear, using phony names and bashing someone online does not take guts… in fact it is the most gutless thing you can do IMHO. A life spent in celeb chat rooms, leaving cryptic posts about the celeb and then dancing around with strangers about what an “insider” you are…well…courage doesn’t come to mind. Courage is when you sign your name and own what you say.

So now I must change my original impressions as I review this tiny dust-up over the picture. It’s so obvious who is truly courageous, who spoke his mind and looked the camera in the face and owned it – Gerard James Butler. We love ya Gerry…you’re grand!

Suzanne

Tom, O and Suzanne…voices of reason. Three people who get it! I wonder what admin would think about a moderator that goes on about Gerry that way?

It amazes me how people have taken one picture with a stupid gesture, one that maybe he shouldn’t have used, but I’m sure he had a reason for, and have found a way to to condem him of what? He is drunk, he is smoking no matter what anyone says, he is on steriods, and should be out with a hooker. Wow people sure know how to read a lot from one razzi picture. I could care less who that finger is aimed at most of the time Gerrys is playing around what is the big deal.

I see no guts from you Colin. You’re in chat big deal. You assume that we would know who you are by what …your writing style, that we would hang on to your every word as gospel? I guess I will have to go there and see what… someone who bashes Gerry at every turn? Me thinks someone would get a spanking with that move. So fess up ye of big mouth. Stand up and reveal thyself.

colin, you seem to feel that we as his fans should be doing something about hispossible drinking/smoking/steroid using, if this is the case for his haggard look of late. what would you have us do?? we are not his family, close friends or handlers. these are the people who should be taking care of him. we as his admirers can only support him by showing our appreciation of his talent.

Colin Colin Colin…I know exactally who you are, why am i not surprised. You make a habit of bashing Gerry on GB.net as well. Shame on you. Why the site puts up with you is beyond imagination. Maybe you should just stick to your Colin Ferrell site and leave GB.net to those that actually respect Gerry, warts and all.

Remember Tarts love and respect a person even if they do things not to our liking. It is the person that we care about, unconditionally. You should try it sometime it is quite liberating. Maybe that is why you hate the term Tart.

Try to find joy in your life ‘Colin’ it is there. Finding fault in everything can be rather exhausting.

Everyone try to keep up with his schedule and lack of sleep and see how you look after awhile. Give the guy the benifit of the doubt. Under it all he is a kind, compassionate, hard working man who tries his best. End of story.

L ~ I like what you wrote, but I doubt that Colin is who she says she is.

There are all kinds false identities and trolls on the internet. People like Colin write to get everyone else going, it’s a game to them.

Like Suz said earlier, Colin uses inuendo not courage. She insinuates that she’s a moderator at that site, but she doesn’t come out and say who she is.

I don’t believe a moderator of a reputable site would write the way Colin does. I just don’t buy it.

This thread is like a microcosym of the internet, from the sublime to the ridiculous. I feel that Gerry showing some honest anger for a brief moment is more real and truthful.

I agree with cyndee. Frankly, I don’t care who “Colin” is, or what games he/she might be playing…. what I care about is that people don’t seem to think trashing a decent man’s reputation is wrong. For all the positive ways we can use the internet, it still amazes me that some people use it to trash and bash others. What’s the point?

Isn’t there enough negativity in the world…?

L-if you figured out what monitor I am and wonder why the site puts up with me then perhaps you should the head owners why I’m still over there. You would be surprised at the answer. :-P

Just because I edit the garbage remarks over at the site like some school teacher doesn’t mean I can’t express an opinion of his bad actions at another open comment place. Free speech on a place that he certainly won’t be posting at.

If you think Gerard is Mister Perfect and can do no wrong (even though we notice from the pic he can) then may I highly suggest a visit to a shrink or behaps get away from the computer once in a while and join the real world.

wow – such nastiness!

tom – i’m with you – we should all focus on the positive…and ‘colin’ – maybe our parents were right when they told us “if you don’t have something nice to say about someone, say nothing at all”….

just my humble opinion!
giovanna

Gosh, people, you need glasses, lol! He doesn’t even look mad there, he’s in fact just “saluting”, at a pap’s request maybe? Is it a British thing, both Bale and Law do it, too?

And his other eye is pretty clear. So, who poked him in the red eye?

well i’d shag him

This isn’t Gerard’s site and Colin is permitted to say whatever he or she wants to about the snapshot. Unlike his website where you censor such things dealing with the paparazzi we don’t have a closed mind when talking about them here.

So if you don’t like it then you go make a You Tube video about how Super Dooper Gerard is and how your existence revolves around him so much that his own forum must be so boring that it can’t prevent you from coming over here and trying to censor this one.

You go Colin…..FREEEEEDDDOOOMM!!

This is america.people can say what they want ,when they want.I go to alot of the site’s for my girl’s.I have all girl’s who love boy’s.not just butler’s.He dont pay my bill’s,Im a single mom.who work’s her finger’s to the bones for her children.These site’s are mostly for girl’s.so me and my girl’s hang out ,check out the site’s and have fun.I have never met butler and most likely never will.And Im sure he does not care about any of the comments that I make.Good or bad.I know this and my girl’s know this.It’s a fun hobbie that,s all.but real fun is snow boarding like me and my girl’s are leaveing to go do.

He is not drunk in the picture!

We all know he did get poked in the eye with

the end of his eyeliner pencil when he went to make himself look even more pretty for his date. LOL!

very upset @ 01/06/2008 at 5:10 pm

Well,
I wonder how many people know about trucos windows.net.And @atdmt.I had my whole computer crash,and i had to buy another one because of this.I went to the geek squad and they said it was hacker’s.so I went to the police and trucos windows came up.they had everything that I had done on the internet from a certain time.I mean everything.And they told me how it happened.I have all of the paper work.I lost picture,s that was dear to me and my family.They said it came from a site.And I know who done it.Because this person has said things that only the person that did it would know.And they still have my computer,and it may take sometime.but im going to make sure that you will never do this again to anyone.And you know who you are.That’s not cool.yea I have proof.How dare you.Because your trusted to be a over seer.you broke into my computer and I dont even know you.But now I know who you are.some people take this way to far.

charty_6988 @ 01/07/2008 at 12:33 pm

First it was the female friend at the resteraunt on 12-20, many still say she was a street walker he picked up, now it is him doing “the bird”, which I am sure he has plenty of “flight time” on it……whether you like him or dont, everyone has a right to put their opinion in and if no one can handle then the need to stay out of these chat rooms is important.
(Just my input gang!!!) same with the bashing….

queenbutler @ 01/07/2008 at 12:58 pm

It’s just a finger. Is it really that big of a deal? Damn leave him alone. So there’s a picture of him *****************, what of it? Kind of a crappy story if you ask me. Justjarred are you in need of an article? Thanks anyway for the pics.

I agree everyone has a right to thier opinions freedom of speech and all that crap. What I don’t agree with is people twisting words around. Seems very odd that someone who is supposed to be a moderator for that Gerard Butler site would go around bashing Mr. Butler like that or the people that are on the site. Seems a bit fishy to me. Maybe this ‘mod’ has an issue with the site or a person on it and is trying to get someone or the site itself in trouble.

Reading through this topic a couple of the posters here obviously are big fans of Mr. Butler, but they also seem to take what he does in stride and not fly blind like someone has said. They said they don’t always agree with what he does ,but unlike others they don’t bash him for it either. So what is so wrong with that?

very upset @ 01/07/2008 at 1:25 pm

No miss phamtom tart,156 is not a ad.and Im glad your talking crap about someone breaking into someones computer.Keep talking crap I will fax all of the paper work to the people who really counts.not no fan web site.so that everyone can see just how crazy some of you people really are.And another thing miss phamton tart.How about I send all of the paperwork to mr butler’s legal dept .so they can see just how crazy some of you are.this is no joke.And im not saying that all of gerard’s fan’s are crazy.95% of them are sane.And they seem to have fun on the site,s.Gerard has nothing to do with this,he didnt do it some crazy person from one of his sites did it.and those are the people that we are going after.My kid, had pictures of one of her best friends on that computer,who is in and out of the hospital who is very sick.And Im trying to keep my cool.And I will.I will not post anymore,I said what I had to say.And Im not no kid Im a grown woman.So keep on talking crap.And promise you The world will find out just how crazy some fan,s are.And that’s not fair to everyone else because there’s a nut in the group.And she know’s who she is.And the more I see comments like this the more it make’s me upset.Oh and it will take time.And Im not going to say anything else about this.But some of you people hurt him more then what you help him ,talking about your a fan.NO YOUR C-R-A-Z-Y..And im sure if I decide to send anything to anyone their going to know your C-R-A-Z-Y too.crazy and diranged,just like martian said.Why dont you go tell gerard miss phamton tart about the ad of 156,go on miss tart,tell him about the whole thing and see what he say,s.Go miss fan.And I said what I had to say and the rest will be taken care of.

maryp NOt colin !! @ 01/07/2008 at 1:59 pm

In reference to this post… “Colin Colin Colin…I know exactally who you are, why am i not surprised. You make a habit of bashing Gerry on GB.net as well. Shame on you.

“Colin” is not me!
A friend told me about this discussion and that some people thought that “Colin” is me.. I hadn’t even seen this discussion..or even the photo in question (although I had heard about it) before coming here right now.

I don’t know if “Colin” is trying to act as if they are me on purpose or it’s just a coincidence..but I just wanted to make it clear that it is not me posting that crap.. I would never speak that way of Gerry. People who really know me..know that to be true.

And “L” .. I don’t know who you are.. but I’m sorry that you have such a low opinion of me. However, please stop spreading lies.

If “Colin” really is a “forum mod” (which I am NOT) .. and it sounds as if they are implying they are a “foreign language forum mod”??…at GB.net ..then they should be stripped of their job.. in my opinion.

Mary P – couple of us wondered when you’d show up here LOL Of course we knew any mod or admin from a GB site would not be hurlig invective out in an obscure thread somewhere (Cindee #45 nailed it) Gerry’s fans know he’s a bad boy and no one in these threads has talked about him being perfect except maybe Colin – in the petulant hyperbole she tries to float in last paragraph of #148. Only a wimp needs to insinuate they have someone else’s gravitass…pathetic.

woops correction in line 3 post #163
(cindee # 145 nailed it)

Alright maryp NOt colin!! You are so right!!

And to quote maryp..

“If “Colin” really is a “forum mod” (which I am NOT) .. and it sounds as if they are implying they are a “foreign language forum mod”??…at GB.net ..then they should be stripped of their job.. in my opinion.”

I agree.

Colin, if you really are a foreign mod at GB.net, you’re a terrific reason to delete that section altogether. Bottom line is, you are one piece of hypocritical slime.

We know maryp wouldn’t say things like that about Gerry.

Gerry is his own man. So what if he gives the finger? Like that makes him the devil or something. How naive.

very upset @ 01/07/2008 at 6:15 pm

very upset @ 01/07/2008 at 6:20 pm

And for the record just jared has nothing to do with this.And I and my people know this for the record my swearn statement

very upset-the first time I’ve posted here is #154 & 155 I don’t know you. I posted #157 too because I didn’t understand your post above it.

You make a habit of bashing Gerry on GB.net-I’ve NEVER bashed him at the site or I would have been both deleted in my posts and banned from joining all together.

Some of you have gotten some messages mixed up and suggest you go back and ready those by my ‘name’ and by others names. There is no hate from my messages. Just removed myself from being the ‘Gerry Drone’ to come over and post how rude and unnecessary his gesture was to anyone-rather they be press or fans.

‘you really are a foreign mod at GB.net, you’re a terrific reason to delete that section’ the hosts of the site has every right to cancel me from being a monitor if they wish-trouble you have is not knowing which I cover.

I associated Gerry with a Colin Farrell type style in his attitude in his later years as the press has increased. Please returned your brains to the upright position and realize I’m not someone who cares about your opinions off my opinion.

I’m not trying to be someone else-if they came to my fourm and was in the chat room in the last several months you would know who exactly I am. If you think giving my true TART name up to be removed from my position at his site just to prove it–no way is that happening.

Also I have too much to do at the main site to keep coming over here to share my opinion. So see you all at http://gerardbutler.net :-)

Colin,
No one who has posted the disrespectful and snide comments you have about this man, has the right to be a moderator on a website that is there in support of him. You not only show disrespect for Gerard, but to all his fans on that site as well. I personally hope someone blows your cover, and that the admin of that site relieve you of your position.

Tom, I belong to that web site and they don’t allow any negative comments about him on the boards. So colin has to come here to spew her venom.

Truth hurts doesn’t it Tom. (6)

Also voted for David Tennant in Most Attractive Man-Grand Finale 2007 Hello Mag poll. :-)

Now what you going to do. Bad Tart-Bad Tart-Watcha Gonna Do when other Tarts come looking for you? LOL!!!!!!

colin–if you have so much to do , then why are you always here??and –you voted for Tennant as most attractive, wow–that says alot about you doesn’t it.

Yes dreamer voting for Tennant does say alot. It says I love the man who plays Dr. Who. I learn to organize my time so I can get my work done and still come over here to comment. Can’t you work more than one task at a time and still have YOUR work done?

Geezzz… People, do yopu really think he is a god? He is a man. Very troubled man. But ya all, die-hard Butler fans, you prefer to care about his spotless image you build in your minds. Nothing he does is bad, and there always is some excuse. But, let’s face the truth, you don’t give a **** about the real man. Sad.

queenbutler @ 01/12/2008 at 4:30 pm

I care!

Queen Butler-Can you tell us why you do care?

I mean he owes you nothing. He won’t remember your name-he doesn’t own you any money-he doesn’t ask or call you for fashion or women advice-nor ask about the movie rolls he takes-and he won’t leave you in his will. So why care???

hey why not him the press is always in someone;s face & he is not the first to flip the bird so no big deal as far as I am concerned
I still will watch his movies & HIM…

cheers

queenbutler @ 01/14/2008 at 1:14 pm

Why do I care?

Okay lets see, Colin you have mentioned a few times about him being a role model for young people. I don’t get the impression that he wants to be a role model for the young. I think he enjoys acting. Simple. You can tell by the roles that he chooses that he’s not out to reach out to young people, other wise he would be all over Disney movies.( I have wanted to say that for a while now) but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t care for others.

No, your right he doesn’t “own” me any money, and also will he never remember my name, in fact he will probably never know my name, lets be realistic, but why would I want to see all these comments on him, they are rude disrespectful and just hateful. It’s not my place to say anything negative or maybe embarrassing about a person I don’t know. It’s part of being an adult, having inhabitions…towards yourself and others. So when I read these comments it upsets me makes me wonder where do people get the nerve? I probably will never know or understand. But I will not speak poorly of others and thats just how I personally feel, me alone (by the look of some of these comments).

And when did a person have to get something in return to care about someone else? So I may not know the guy…but do I wish him ill will? NO! I know he’s not “spotless” nor am I (far from it too) but who is? I see faults in people, including him, and recognize them, but why are people so wrapped up in the small stuff? This whole post from jared was about him showing the middle finger, look how far it has gone. Really? All this…including my post. I have now become one of you just because I said I cared. Its a damn shame.

I wish I could say more about all of this but honestly, no one listens or cares what I have to say. Plus, writting doesn’t convey the right tone (or maybe it’s just not my niche).

I feel with all I have written I now owe an explanation as to why I am here and why I have posted this comment so there are no questions later as there seems to be so many. I am here a fan (go figure). I enjoy Gerard Butler’s work. I posted this comment because there is so much going on right now and everyone is making a big deal about nothing. So, he looks old, he looks drunk, he’s on drugs…that’s all a matter of opinion at this point. Does it need to be said? Some of you feel that it does. Do you feel better now? Sure freedom of speech, yada yada yada…

Some things are just better left unsaid. Ever heard that one?

For “Some things are just better left unsaid.” you sure can run off at the mouth.

Not wanting to be a role model for the young, but he wouldn’t mind asking his fans no matter what age to donate to charity in his name–and welcome to a society where even Britney Spears is being held up to being a popular star to perhaps be likes.

[You can tell by the roles that he chooses that he’s not out to reach out to young people, other wise he would be all over Disney movies.]

Didn’t he mention he wanted to be the voice of the lion in the DISNEY movie The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Nim’s Island still is a DISNEY flick is it not? :-)

[So when I read these comments it upsets me makes me wonder where do people get the nerve?]

If your so upset about these comment why come to a comment page where not everything is Gerard Butler site censored with pretty pictures and people who no doubt bleive his farts smell like pretty flowers.

[I see faults in people, including him, and recognize them, but why are people so wrapped up in the small stuff?]

These photographs do show the ‘bad’ side of a one spotless image given out by his ‘fans’. Though this isn’t a small stuff item when it could be just the start of a larger problem. It started off with cussing-drinking (in his younger days)-smoking and now finger gesturing. What happens next? Punch out a photographer? Not show up on a movie set? Worse?

LOL!! Butler’s one finger salute was originally posted on January 1 and you guys are still talking about it. Seriously, good stuff here. Keep going.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU TOO GERRY!
:D

Note:
1. he is NOT drunk! :-{
He has been sober for over 10 years!

2. I guess the razzi deserved the treat.

3. It is not meant to the public.

4. Everyone may have his/her opinion, but please stop bugging the man, you may not wish to be in his shoes…

Cheers

I will finish reading on this blog before I get angrier.

I can not understand why people not liking Gerry need to stay here and keep talking the way they do.

“Hey Dear! You voiced your opinion, once, twice, etc, why do you have to keep it up? You hate him? Fine… Now move on with your life! – or get one…”

Just for the record: If you think you can tell someone drunk from a picture, without being there (knowing he is tired, pissed off, maybe still sick and being provoked) I congratulate!
You might as well stop your further medical studies just about here…

AND: I am a TART!
I do have brains and an opinion of my own.
I would be there to support Gerry even if he was the ugliest man to have ever walked the planet Earth, because he is one unique and amazing actor and a generous & kind soul! (who has the guts to say or show if he is displeased for good reason)

I hope you are satisfied to have insulted many people here, esp. Gerry.
I feel sorry for you…

queenbutler @ 01/14/2008 at 7:21 pm

Colin
I didn’t disrespect any of your thoughts or previous comments, but you were damn sure to make a remark towards me. I would have expected the same courtesy.

Okay I don’t understand your first paragraph, Please spend a little more time proof reading, and I’ll get back to that point.

2nd
I didn’t know he wanted to be the voice of the lion, this is the first I have heard it. As far as Nim’s Island, what are your feelings towards Jodi Foster? I have to wonder considering her recent acknowledgement towards her lifestyle. Granted, she’s talented and I haven’t heard of her *****************. But does her personality meet your role model expectations. Once again matter of opinion.

3rd
I explained why I was here, maybe you should read again, and I enjoy photos.

I don’t get this whole spotless image everyone talks about. Are you trying to open up his fans eyes? What is it you want them to see? I can assure you I’m not one of the “blind” people. Even if he was provoked, he should have walked away. He made a poor chose in an action. I NEVER disagreed with you. But the start of a larger problem? Is ***************** a gateway to badness?

queenbutler @ 01/14/2008 at 7:31 pm

I still care!

I see that in spite of all she has to do , colin is still finding the time to moniter this board. you really need to let this go. we all get the fact he is just a human being with all the flaws the rest of us have. but, I still think he is 1 hell of an actor and you will never change my mind about that.

queenbutler @ 01/15/2008 at 10:25 am

I’m with Dreamer

For goodness’ sake, can you all please lighten up? So the guy flips the bird. He also curses like a sailor. He’s not trying to be a role model for anyone. Was any of you there, when the photo was taken? Who knows why he did it. Better yet, who cares? All of you throwing stones, I’m sure, have never flipped off anyone, ever, or even used profanity in any situation (heavy irony intended)…

Colin isn’t the only one commenting on this pic here and I say good for her to be the one who put Gerry in his place and have him account for his bad actions.

She (if she is a ‘she’ because she never verify she was a chick or dude) monitors boards and still be a TART is kewl. I love an open minded Tart.

I do not see why people seem to feel that Gerry Butler needs to be “put in his place”. He is 38 years old and the only person with the right to remind him of his manners would be his mother. I have to admit that I have enjoyed all of this banter back and forth but the putting Gerry in his place is just a dumb remark. I also agree that the people a gb.net do tend to gloss over anything about Gerard. So, he gave someone the finger. Try driving on 95 in the DC area you’ll get it ten times a day and you will also get over it.

His mom hasn’t been doing a good job since this isn’t his first finger flash.

didn’t know this guy was irish till i watched this flick

That’s not fair. I’m not saying that his mom should say something to him. Remember, he is a 38 year old man. But, as a mom, only she has the right to hand out the classic line that EVERYONE has been told, “I did not raise you to behave that way”. I am a mom myself I am not taking my kids little hands and showing them how to flip someone off (funny image though). I’m prettty sure Gerards mom did not do this with him. So lay off his mom.
Also, Phantom4lifeTart, do you feel the need put your friends in “their place” when you see them give someone the finger?

colin, did you change your name to —phantom4lifetart—-hahahahaha

film dude-he’s inherited the Irish in the family, but because he was born in Scotland-He’s considered Scottish.

No snappy comeback Colin? Or, are YOUR manners kicking in?

HyperSweet @ 01/17/2008 at 3:13 pm

This bickering has to stop. This is a comment page about the photo-not a fourm page. This has to END! He’s a good man who did a bad thing. And leave it at that. Wait until the next picture to pick things up on another comment page.

Mom, is that you? haha. relax. We are just killing time. No harm, no foul. It’s not like Gerard is reading this. If he is, well, I hope he has laughed as hard as I did over some of these comments. People never fail to crack me up! Have a great day everyone. Until next time.

queenbutler @ 01/18/2008 at 12:33 pm

Hey justafan, so you noticed it too (colin’s short reply), I was expecting another arguement. I guess not. But how come we don’t see a family tree. I thought colin had all the scoop. What’s going on here?

I’m sure Colin is now understanding that Gerard Butler is HUMAN. I also do not believe that Gerard did a “bad thing”. I’m sure his throat was just a little scratchy and this was the best way to get his point across in a non-verbal but still very clear way :)

Phantom4Life @ 01/18/2008 at 2:43 pm

No that’s me! There is only one Phantom4Life Tart that I know of at Gerry’s website. Don’t make fun of me because I defend Colin. There are a lot worse people who don’t care for Gerry than him/her.

queen butler-how do you know colin doesn’t have the scoop? It’s not like he/she has to share it with any Tarts. I’ve been in the chat room as much as I can trying to figure who he/she is…what have you done except run your mouth?

queenbutler @ 01/18/2008 at 5:15 pm

Run my mouth…that’s funny.
You also just asked to not be made fun of because you defend colin…that’s hysterical. There does seems to be a bit of information that you left out though. Why are you looking for colin? And what are you going to do once you find out who this person is? Your motives are unclear. And one more question… what do you want me to do? I’m not a tart, I support Gerard Butler and I tried to respect everyones views here without the insults. Everyone wants to be all high and mighty in their actions but look at how everyone reacts to others comments, insults and putdowns. I have yet to do that and twice I’ve been insulted. Play nice.

come on guys, 2 days and no posts.keep this going until they put up a new picture of him. something nice and sweet that shows off that beautiful mouth of his.

Didn’t P.S. open in Brazil this weekend? I know we should keep this about the photo , so, I don’t think that I have ever seen such a beautiful execution of the bird in a long while. I give it a 9.9 (no one is perfect darlin’).

queenbutler @ 01/21/2008 at 2:09 pm

uh oh…where is everyone? No one has anything to say? Let see…

I’m flipping everyone off…

Anything? Hey, I’m just kidding! I guess I was just hoping there was more going on here. It was fun while it lasted, thanks guys. I hope no one’s too upset.

How dare you flip us off! I’m telling Colin!!! hehehe

queenbutler @ 01/21/2008 at 6:33 pm

It’s not just colin, I also miss phantom4life.
Sure they were rude but I kinda wanted my questions answered. This is the 2nd time this has happened. Who insults and runs? Sounds like bad behavior to me.

That’s right! Maybe everyone has risen above it all and they do not have to answer to the likes of us mere mortals (I include Gerard Butler in the mortal category). I just enjoyed the creativity of all the posters. Although I am a fan of Mr. Butler, I am by no means a zealot when it comes to him. I do visit gb.net but they are extremely one sided. I have not joined the secret members only club. The way they talk about it I’m sure I would have to sacrifice a goat or give them my first born. Last year they had a post on the main page about what a wonderful man Gerard is and how we should be so honored to have him around (or something to that effect) I swear after I read it I felt like I should say “Amen”. It was like something a minister would say about God or Jesus. Too odd. Repeat after me, “Gerard Butler is just a Man”, “Gerard Butler is just a man”. Never mind the MOST beautiful man I have EVER laid eyes on and an very eloquent actor on top of that, but a man still the same. Looks like we all win here.

queenbutler @ 01/22/2008 at 11:42 am

I know what you mean about us all winning here, but people need to mind their manners. Like that comment about his mother not doing a good job, was it just me or was that out of line?

You know about his website, I have been on it, just wasn’t my thing. I don’t get the whole tart thing. I’m sure that I’m not speaking of the majority, but some of them are a little out there. That’s the main reason why I don’t frequent his website. Plus it doesn’t look like there is anything good on there, maybe I’m wrong…it’s been a while. Ahh, still not interested.

The mom comment hit a nerve with me too. About that web sight, if all you want are butterflies and rainbows that’s the place for you. I’m sure if you join the secret society (I personally like goats so it’s not for me) they promise to give you insider scoop. I think that if you can’t give the information out to non members it may not be something that should be told. Does that make sense? Well, I don’t want to keep bashing that web page anymore. They do a good job giving all of the good news (I have yet to read a bad review there). I think I’ll just keep loving Gerard Butler for who he is, finger and all.

queenbutler @ 01/22/2008 at 7:53 pm

Gotcha.

I know this does not have to do with Gerard Butler but the death of Heath Ledger sure puts this silly middle finger talk in perspective. God bless the Ledger Family.

queenbutler @ 01/23/2008 at 11:04 am

I know I really have to think about his daughter though. I only hope she has complete love and support to cope with a tragic loss. I’ve been on some of jj posts on his death there is this comment from another person who posted some really negative things (predicting his death, or so to say). I can’t image an older Matilda reading horrific things on both her parents. Back to my “people have some nerve” thing. Where are the manners and respect for one another? No wonder the world is filled with problems. I should solve them all…uh…I got problems of my own (unsolved, damn it!)

To go after someones child or mother?!
Paybacks, baby, paybacks!

queenbutler @ 01/24/2008 at 10:13 am

I need a new post on Gerard Butler please!

No kidding!

Something happy and silly. Come on Gerry, show us who’s #1:)!!!

just and queen, don’t know if you 2 have been to this site–lots of gerry news-some funny s— goes on here at times——-imdb—its all about the movies. give it a try if you haven’t already. thats imdb hope to see you guys there

thank you – see nice people ARE out there

queenbutler @ 01/25/2008 at 1:12 pm

no kidding thanks!

#47, he is successful because of his talents, not his fans. #54, he doesn’t drink Alcohol. #58, you don’t need to drink alcohol to go to places like that. #60, he’s not wasted. #65, Tom is well informed leave him alone and he DOES know what he is talking about. #67, the pictures were taking as he was going into the club, not out. #75, believe me, his mum has seen it all before, I’m sure. #77, show me one photo taken that shows him with alcohol in his hand.#82, not worth commenting on. #86, bravo! #88, you sound jealous of his spotlight, are you standing in the shade. #91, his fans are very talented people! #99, Tom you are GREAT.#101, Even Colin Farrell, appears to be better then you. #104, that would be one bitter chick, what’s wrong weren’t you woman enough for him? #105 Bravo! #109, please zip it up!!! #110, Tom you beat me to the punch every time, LOL. Witch , he hurt his eye during filming. and he stopped smoking, so his immunities are down in his body, and he will probably get sick alot for the first year after quitting. He was still fighting his chest congestion at the time of these pictures. Colin Noone thinks of Gerard as a role model for youngsters, he has never claimed to be one for them and besides most of his films aren’t aimed at youngsters anyway.#119 Bravo to you!

#183 No one would ever consider Brittany Spears any kind of role model for any one, not even her own children or her sister (apparently) compared to her, Gerard is an absolute angel, LOL, even with the finger. #195 Gerard is Scottish, with Irish Ancestry. #198 Gerard is Scottish as well as his Parents, grandparents, etc. He is Scottish because of his Heritage as well, and not just because he was born there, duh.#200, get a life elsewhere, don’t get on here is you can’t handle the heat!

I’d flick off the bloody paparrazi as well! Here, you only see a brief reaction he had to them. If you watch the videos, he’s actually quite humorous and patient with them considering he’s being stalked. I don’t believe he is looking for all this attention, he is trying to have some kind of life outside of work. He would be attacked if he entered a “normal” venue, therefore he must go to the ones with higher security where the pap. swarm.

HEY #19,

YOU REALLY NEED TO GO SHOVE YOUR HEAD UP YOUR OWN ASS!!! GERRY WAS GREAT IN POTO & EVERY OTHER MOVIE HE’S BEEN IN & YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO CALL HIM A JERK. YOU PROBABLY DONT EVEN KNOW HIM OR HAVE SEEN EVEN 1/2 HIS MOVIES. YOUR THE REAL JERK YA JACK ASS. SO HE HAS HUMOR AND IS LETTING HIS FINGER DO THE TALKING TO THE CAMERA/POP. I FIND IT FUNNY & THE POP. DESERVE IT!!!! YOU GO GERRY B.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE YA!!!!!!!, NOT YOU 19, IM SURE NOBODY LOVES YOU FOR THAT COMMENT.

WELL WELL WELL,

I MUST SAY, I TOTALLY AGREE WITH #’s 41,44,57,86,159,185,191,&226 100%!!! & #100 IS SOO RIGHT, MAY BE THE POP. DID DESERVE IT, BUT HE’S REALLY A HUMBLE/ HUMOROUS/PATIANT GUY W/ THE POP. SO LEVE HIM THE HELL ALONE, WHO REALLY CARES ANYWAY. #48, HE’S NOT INSULTING ANYONE, IT’S JUST A FINGER SO GET OVER IT!!! #54, HE PROBABLY SMELLS LIKE SEXY MAN AND SWEET SUGER COMBINED, BUT YOU REEK I’M SURE. #67&79, THOSE COMMENTS JUST MADE YOU BOTH THE ASSES & LOOSERS NOT GERRY. #64, THERE ISNT A THING ABOUT GERRY THATS UGLY, NEVER WAS NEVER WILL BE!!! #34, THEN YOU DON’T DESERVE TO SEE THE MOVIES. #38, DON’T BE GELIOUS JUST BECAUSE YOUR THE NOBODY!!! #39, THAT PROVES RIGHT THERE THAT YOUR THE STUPID ONE. #45, GERRY IS THE REASON WHY “300″ WAS A HIT, IF IT WEREN’T FOR HIM, HIS BODY, & THAT DEEP VOICE, THE MOVIE WOULD HAVE BEEN NOTHING!!!! #121, THERE ISN’T SUCH A THING AS AN UNATRACTIVE GERRY BUTLER, JUST CAUSE YOUR UGLY DOESN’T MEAN TO TAKE IT OUT ON HIM. & #150 IS RIGHT, GERRY DOESN’T LOOK MAD IN THE PIC. HE’S JUST HAVING FUN WITH THE POP. & IF YOU CAN’T SEE THAT THEN YOUR BLIND OR DON’T DESERVE TO SEE. GERRY HASN’T HAD A SMOKE IN MONTHS, HE QUIT, & HE ALSO HASN’T HAD A DRINK IN OVER 10YRS. HE’S SOOOOOOO NOT DRUNK & EVERYONE HAS THAT DAY WHEN THEY DON’T LOOK LIKE THIER IN TIP TOP SHAPE READY FOR PROM=HOT, BUT GERRY STILL LOOKS SEXY IN THAT PIC!!!!!!!! HE’S MOST LIKELY JUST TIRED FROM A LONG NIGHT & GAVE A QUICK FLICK TO THE CAMERA SAYING HE DIDN’T WANT TO TALK. HE LET HIS FINGER DO THE TALKING, GET OVER IT, ITS A FINGER, WHAT YA GONNA DO ABOUT IT, ITS NOT THE 1st TIME ITS HAPPENED. HE’S JUST BEING GERRY. SO LEAVE THE MAN ALONE & GET SOME HUMOR. BY THE WAY, IF YOUR ONE OF THOSE **** MAKING RUDE IGNORANT REMARKS ABOUT GERRY THEN WHY ARE YOU ON HIS FAN SITE? A.K.A. IT’S FOR FANS NOT REGECKS. BESIDES, GERRY’S QUITE NICE WITH HIS FANS & POP. HE’S BEEN KNOWN TO BE ONE OF THE NICEST PEOPLE/ ACTERS FOR THE TIME HE TAKES TO TALK TO POP/CAMERAS, TAKE PICS w/ FANS, STAY SEXY & I WOULD SAY THAT “TO HAVE GERARD BUTLER FLICK ME OR ANYONE OFF, IS A PRIVLEDGE.”

Helen Petrovic @ 09/11/2008 at 3:55 am

You go Gerry…..Good on ya Mate..the papparazzi can be a pain.I think you are anj absolute Gentleman.An odd middle finger solute.big deal.
Love ya style!
Anyone that has not heard of Gerrard Butler has been living under a rock..I fell deeply in lust with him the minute I set eyes on him.

What’s up with the bird?

And who is the woman with him this time? Check picture no.2. – there’s an arm around his waist. That stupid pap should have taken a photo of her, too. ;)

Hi Guy, this good blogs, thanks
