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!

    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… 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.

    K Says:

    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?

    K Says:

    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?

    Colin Says:

    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!

    Tom Says:

    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??

    cdn GBfan Says:

    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?

    Suz Says:

    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??

    Colin Says:

    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.

  10. 110
    Tom Says:

    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.

  11. 111
    Suz Says:

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

    Witch Says:

    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.

  13. 113
    Suz Says:

    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

  14. 114
    Witch Says:

    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”.

    K Says:

    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.

    Abbey Says:

    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.

  17. 117
    Colin Says:

    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

    Pukkie Says:

    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.

    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.
