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.

    Gerard Butler is a marginally talented fame *****. Plain and simple. I can’t believe that some here are actually that naive (or would the correct term be stupid?) to defend this man’s honor so vehemently as though they’re sleeping beside him every night. Wow! Getta’ a grip! Do you not realize that this man gets paid millions every time he steps on a movie set? He ain’t no average Joe. He is a commodity. He is a product that is to be marketed, packaged and sold to various demographics. His job is to put asses in seats at the multiplex, preferably to the tune of several hundred million in box office receipts. He has a team of people crafting an image that will sell. And yes, probably 90% of that image is a lie. When POTO was released he was the big puppy dog. The sweet, sensitive type that cries and loves his Mum. The Scottish guy who overcame adversity to hit the big time. Now he’s the consumate Hollywood star with a complete entourage that never strays too far from a party or an event where he never seems to stray too far from a photo op. A bad boy that’s lovin’ em and leavin’ em’ (wouldn’t it be funny if he had actually been in a long term relationship all this time?) hanging out with beautiful Bollywood actresses and Brazilian supermodels. He even has the elite of the fashion industry holding shows in his honor. He drives fast, expensive cars and is relentlessly (so you all think) pursued by the media. So which is it? How much of this is real or just hype?! Take a wild guess.

    I agree with the posters who think Gerry is getting “bad” press because no press IS bad press. Remember what the philly blogger said; he couldn’t sell any photos of GB during his stay there. No news outlet wanted them. The only thing left for G are blogs and sites like this and they ain’t to flatterin’ lately.
    G was all over India but only written about or photographed in relation to piggy. The only time he gets media attention for any length of time is for his love (?) life. He really doesn’t seem to have anything else to offer, oh, except his cr*ppy movies of late.

    Im pretty sure thats not what i wrote. Now im supposed to come back later to see if my comment got through? Too busy. Lots of celeb sites out there, and most of them actually trust you especially after youve been commenting for several weeks. Bye.

    yes Says:

    Haha I have never heard of this Gerard character until I saw reports of him linking to Priyanka. I watch Hollywood films and I probably saw his picture somewhere, but he had no lasting impression on me it seems. I even did some research and he has a very stupid career. I fail to understand his popularity.

    It’s weird. He met Chopra only days after he was spotted kissing Kristi in the arcade. How did he move on so fast? Anyway if its true, they are a nice couple

    really had enough Says:

    Nice enough pics – why weren’t they kept private if they are at a private lunch party – sounds and looks like intrusive and pointless PR (again) – I have to say that I have really had enough of GB, his demented fans and the whole sickening PR rubbish – I also know that I don’t want to spend any money on supporting his movies. It seems that he is, as a previous poster says, merely a commodity, a movie brand. Fine, but I suspect that there is very little to commend other than smart PR. He is not very well known here in UK, maybe he is a ‘big noise’ in the US?
    I wish him well and hope that he enjoys his fame, but I no longer wish to know. Walking away in disgust and disappointment.

    Mission accomplished. His trip finally go the attention of the press outside India. And he used innocent kids to do it.
    I owe a poster an apology. He/she said that G would do any thing for publicity and I disagreed. Sorry!

    Thanks; that was such a nice comment.

    Ayeoh Says:

    Well said buster brown #76.
    #79 Could it be because Gerry’s 15 minutes of fame has ticked away amongst the mainstream audience? TUT will not help him out.
    Those kids are so cute.

    Gerry is living his life… and seems to be happy… everything else is blah blah blah… from unhappy and bitter ones.

    Are posts being deleted?

    Popcorn, anyone? Says:

    This comment has nothing to do with GB.

    I am actually a bit concerned for the wellbeing of some of those kids, especially Rubiana Ali. The idea of someone wanting to selling their own child makes me feel ill.

    That is all.

    Popcorn, anyone? Says:

    I bet this comment moderation has something to do with the likes of that “Jesus/GB” psycho rant on another thread – the empire awards thread I believe

    StinkyLouise Says:

    I just had a horrible thought? What if they’re being rented out instead?
    Desperate celebs who want to cash in on the film’s success, can rent the kids for photo-ops.At this point nothing would surprise me.

    remember da truth Says:

    Lone Wolf you are right. People who say someone shouldn’t be with someone because they aren’t cute, in their opinion only, are weird. If you only date someone for their looks, or think a celeb should break up with someone who is ugly, you are really messed up.

    But then again, you shouldn’t be reading so many tabs and believing what they say, They make it up, you do know that, don’t you? If they say, “a source says” then it’s made up. The source is the person across the desk from them, or a pal on the phone, or the cleaning lady, and then they are covered.

    LOL! Says:

    What a load of crap this guy serves. Not saying he doesn’t like the little kiddies, but how naive are you people.

    1. he is gay
    2. he traveled with male companions. duh.
    3. it is all PR – wake up and smell the coffee you losers.

    I think he looks fantastic, and those children are beautiful. I hope Gerry is having a great time!

    cubedweller Says:

    Of course it’s PR – aimed straight at the gossip blogs where he is getting the attention these days. His entire itinerary being given to the Indian press, being cute with kids, chasing a bollywood actress who is over 21. The kids appear to be having a fun time and good for them. But why are the photos of the event popping up from different news agencies? Because somebody made the effort to publicize it. This is the press he is courting right now – blogs and recycled sound-bites. What would happen if a serious journalist sat him down for an in-depth chat? Don’t see that happening.
