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!

    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!!

  • lulu

    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’ 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.

  • Phantom4LifeTart

    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

    I wonder how many people know about trucos @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’ 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 broke into my computer and I dont even know you.But now I know who you are.some people take this way to far.

    Is #156 a sales ad?

  • charty_6988

    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

    It’s just a finger. Is it really that big of a deal? Damn leave him alone. So there’s a picture of him flipping the bird, 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.

  • sam

    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

    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 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 !!

    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 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 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. ”

    “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 ..then they should be stripped of their job.. in my opinion.

  • Suz

    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.

  • Suz

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

  •, cyndee

    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 ..then they should be stripped of their job.. in my opinion.”

    I agree.

  • fu2

    Colin, if you really are a foreign mod at, 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

    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

  • Phantom4LifeTart

    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.

  • Colin

    You make a habit of bashing Gerry on’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, 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.

  • Colin

    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 :-)

  • Tom

    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.

  • dreamer

    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.

  • Colin

    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!!!!!!

  • dreamer

    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.

  • Colin

    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?

  • Witch

    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 shit about the real man. Sad.

  • queenbutler

    I care!

  • Colin

    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???

  • kim

    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…


  • queenbutler

    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?

  • Colin

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

  • Colin

    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?

  • Viola

    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.

  • aB.1963


    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…


  • aB.1963

    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

    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.

    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 flipping the bird. But does her personality meet your role model expectations. Once again matter of opinion.

    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 flipping the bird a gateway to badness?

  • queenbutler

    I still care!

  • dreamer

    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

    I’m with Dreamer

  • ElJayVee

    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)…

  • Phantom4LifeTart

    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.

  • justafan

    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 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.

  • Phantom4LifeTart

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

  • film dude

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

  • justafan

    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?

  • dreamer

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

  • Colin

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

  • justafan

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

  • HyperSweet

    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.
