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!

    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.

    Div Girl Says:

    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.

    anna Says:

    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.

    yVETTE Says:

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

  16. 91
    Colin Says:

    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.

    michele Says:

    #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…

    Witch Says:

    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 ****.

  20. 95
    Colin Says:

    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.

  21. 96
    Colin Says:

    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.

    dreamer Says:

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

    K Says:

    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!

    cyndee Says:

    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.
