Gerard Butler Loves Slumdog Millionaire's Child Stars

Gerard Butler Loves Slumdog Millionaire's Child Stars

Gerard Butler spends the day with the child stars of the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire in India on Saturday (May 2).

The five-star hotel festivities were all courtesy of the 39-year-old Scottish stud. How sweet!

Azhar Ismail (youngest Salim) and Rubiana Ali (youngest Latika) first met Gerard at the Oscars in February 2009.

Also pictured: Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra.

If you haven’t seem Slumdog Millionaire yet, why not?????

    This is an adorable picture! Who’s the UGLY white guy in the middle?

  • StinkyLouise

    I was wondering what he would do to get press for this trip. Apart from the Indian rags, no one gave a rat’s *ss he was even there. But, Hey, trot out the slumdog kids for a PR photo-op and voila,he’s news.

  • ffj

    he is sooooooooooooooooooooo sweet

  • what happen

    Someone has to keep an eye on these kids because their parents keep on trying to sell them on E-Bay.

  • MARLA

    DIDINT GERALD SAY THAT HE WAS GOING T0 INDIA TO SEE HIS GIRLFRIEND MS. CHOPRA? Maybe he just said that so a certain woman that we all know, SHOULD STOP GETTING HER HOPES UP.

    oh how sweet :D And the movie is really worth the fame

  • smile

    good pr to distract from his smutty rep. LOL

  • LoneWolf

    #12-Stinky Weezie, I agree with ya…. hug a little kid and there is the PR…. also, I cant believe (even after Gerry himself has said it….)just because he is pic’d with someone doesnt mean he is dating her…..anyway, if you read all the India/Bolllywood cr*p……you will find he is supposed to have said “Id like to marry a Indian woman”……THEN, in another one it says he’d like to date one……..then as for this proposal thing…..I am curious what he would have done if she called his bluff and said yes!!! Boy, the PR and rag mags would have a heyday. (But she is also in her 20′s!!!!!)

    Also, after reading past posts (previous thread, NYC one) I have to agree with I think it is Stinky (Weezie) who has a friend wh is knowledgeable (sp) in Bollywood insight. If Gerry is going on looks that is fine….but as for personality, Priyanka is as it is posted previously……you better have the money to approach her or she walks on by and she is definitely the party/drinking monger…..and isnt afraid to do what ever it takes to get where she wants/needs to be. Some describe her as very beautiful, everyone has their opinion but personality also contributes to personality as well. While my friends were in Mumbai for RnR several of the Marines got pics of some of the actresses/actors and with what my friends sent me Priyanka didnt come close to several. BUT!!! as I have always said, just my opinion. Bombai also was a beautiful place via the pics…..

    Anyway, if you read everything as it comes in you will find as I do nothing makes sense til it comes from the man himself….our rag mags here are nothing to what those are over in India (or overseas for that matter)…..5 minutes you have a totally different story……but, what is the best thing to overcome boredom? *But to read all the cr*p out there, look at his interviews….bits and pieces of the same thing in all them and then the interviewers “input”.

    **?-wasnt our own beloved (note sarcasm) Jennifer Anniston pic’d with a cute little St Jude kid……? again all for the PR….and I know (sigh) they got to get it some how….

    Peace.

  • LoneWolf

    *note-Sorry cant type…what I was trying to say-personality contributes to appearance as well (not personality contributes to…..) *remember the old line…beauty is only skin deep……and I myself have in the past been guilty of going just for looks…and have paid for it…

    Sorry, gang for the grammar/typo…..6 days working nites is taking a toll.

    Peace.

  • claire

    cute photos. but what is he doing in india? is he shooting for a film?
    i also saw some pictures of a party thrown for him

  • Sue

    Why all the ugly comments? A rhetorical question-don’t answer. I think the pix are great and GB & the kids look like they are having a good time. That’s all that matters isn’t it? And who believes all the crap that is written in the tabloids by those trying to make a buck. The true person GB is, is known to himself alone, and the rest of the people who spread lies and gossip can go pound sand. Let the man alone to live his life the way he wants. He seems like a good man and God knows there a very few of them around.
    I’ll get off my soapbox now.

  • ger the dîckmunch

    hallelujah praise the lord. he’s not partying in a nightclub.

    he must be feeling ill. maybe he’s got swine flu, or maybe the greedy capitalist fuçk has a conscience after all.

  • To Sue

    Please go fuçk yourself.

  • StinkyLouise

    OK. I’m climbing on the soapbox. There has been , in my opinion ,a disturbing trend among celebrities over the last couple of years.And that’s the use of a pregnancy and kids for PR purposes.Either to promote an upcoming project or simply to stay relevant. I find it exploitative and troubling. And I see G doing it here.He could have done this for the kids privately. Instead, photos were taken and sold to a wire service. Getting off MY soapbox.

  • LoneWolf

    #29-Weezie, I again agree…..what better “tool” to use to get public attention that a cute baby/child, ill/poor ones as well. Now, someone correct me here….I cant member where I read it but it was made clear by JA at one time she didnt want kids, BUT to get the monkey off her a$$ while married to Brad and then after the breakup she said she did (but all that ttime married to BP never had one) and then does eventually? THEN!!!! she appears with a little ST Jude child…which BTW she really looked….(someone help me out here….know what I am wanting to say…something like phoney….)

    You all know there is the humane societys that need help….maybe a cute puppy or kitten parsay….?

    Weezie, where do you get a soap box? (LOL just pickin on ya…)

    Peace.

  • twifanatic Amanda

    I love him and slumdog. All is good.

  • looks like PR

    Looks like a PR attempt to divert attention from all the bad press he has been getting lately…especially here on JJ in the “NY is Neat” thread.

  • why-so-cynical?

    Why can’t you take it as face value? He’s involved in many more charitable stuff than people know, anonymously.
    You don’t need to be a monk to care about others and give. Live and let live, the world’s pretty screwed up already.

    Agree with you 100%.
    These people here seem to know everything about how PR and etc. work. So smart. Why do they need to trash GB constantly is beyond me.
    Give me a break!

  • StinkyLouise

    We don’t NEED to trash him. He just makes it so easy. I’ll repeat what I said in another thread. If he had become an actor instead of a celebrity, we wouldn’t be here.
    And as for his anonymous charitable work, that must refer to all the hours he spends in clubs rescuing poor innocent waifs and tending to their needs.LOL

  • andrea

    #35
    I think that for many people he IS an actor. Personally that’s all I care about.
    He is a celebrity? So what?
    And so what if he likes being with girls and do whatever? Nobody’s business.
    Innocent girls? Please!

  • PR

    Commenting on the timing of these pictures with regard to the horrible press that he has been getting lately is not trashing him. It is an observation regarding the potential motivation for releasing pictures of a private gathering.
    If the intentions were strictly altruistic for meeting these children, then the pictures could have remained private. Instead they were released, and it was probably to help rehabilitate his reputation in the press. It’s killing two birds with one stone.

    Unfortunately, I think he is going to need more than a few pics with children to change the reputation that he has earned for himself lately.

  • hannah

    These pics are just toooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sweet!!!! Best set of pics that are worth looking at on this site in weeks. Gerard is such a classy fella! Kudos to him ;)

  • andrea

    PR
    Just out of curiosity; what kind of “horrible press” are you talking about?
    You mean the trashy sites that’s sole purpose is to get attention and would write/lie anything just to get it?
    Or these people’s opinion that are negatively commenting every moves he makes?

  • fardous

    Priyanka and Gerard Butler i hear they are dating hope best for

    both

  • bailey

    thanks so much for posting these jared!

  • now that’s funny

    Has it occurred to anyone that the pics were probably taken for the children and perhaps a parent who would supposedly “sell their child on Ebay” would think nothing of selling these pics to a wire service? I don’t know if that’s the case. My point is, neither do you.

    What I see are new pics of my favorite actor from his Indian vacation.

  • amen

    Too funny – is it possible that some that post here and on other sites like this, consider our unsubstantiated rants and drivel P-R-E-S-S ?
    Get over yourselves…ROTFL

  • boo boo day

    The only negative press I see is from the man-eating sharks trolling for attention here.

  • andrea

    amen,

    what are you talking about? Maybe you can explain while you ROTFL.
    I have not seen any negative press regarding GB that’s why I am asking what the hell you people are talking about.

  • Cherish

    Ugh, what’s with all the bad comments?? Who cares?
    The man looks (and is) great and the kids and pictures are adorable!

  • StinkyLouise

    Actually, there hasn’t been ANY press. ZIP. Zero. Outside of Bollywood no one cared. And that’s the problem. His trip didn’t generate any interest. So he brings out the kids for PR.

  • Sanjay

    #47, is correct. The general public in India was not interested in Gerard’s visit. It got no publicity except for Priyanka yapping to the press. She is a media whore who encouraged citizens to vote in a video then did not bother to show up to vote. But she found time to arrange a party for Gerard on election day and notified the media about it. Pathetic.

    BTW, she is average looking even after all her plastic surgery.

  • andrea

    #47
    Why do you assume that he would need any press of his trip?
    What purpose would that serve for him? Can’t you just believe that he wanted to go to India for whatever reason?
    He is well known among people that understand his acting and care about it; he has enough fans I think.

  • StinkyLouise

    If he didn’t want the press then he would have slipped in and out of India unnoticed. He did it last year. This time he was barely off the plane when he gave his interview.
