Dear Jared,

Why are my comments being moderated? Was #124 moderated too?

Much Love…

even benign stuff @ 05/05/2009 at 7:49 am

comments being moderated – yes

even benign stuff @ 05/05/2009 at 7:50 am

yes it seems that comments are being moderated – leaving just the crazy stuff and the fans

StinkyLouise @ 05/05/2009 at 9:50 am

Comments moderated? Awwww, Jared, say it isn’t so!
As for the Gerry and Piggy gossip, when my friend gave me some info on the Bollywood scene she also said not to believe ANYTHING in the Indian rags. They are as bad, if not worse, in making up garbage. Look at the Tom Cruise/scouting for movie location BS.

Popcorn, anyone? @ 05/05/2009 at 11:28 am

If Butler has ANYTHING to do with Cruise, I’m outta here! That’s it. He’ll be jumping up and down on Craig Ferguson’s couch proclaiming his love next.

people please! @ 05/05/2009 at 12:43 pm

Isn’t Laura Harring considered a *** Hag?…pftt

who his two male friends are who are with him.

slum dog crap @ 05/05/2009 at 1:05 pm

first of all these kids are not all slum kids… only 2 of them are. the rest are normal child artists and some of them have been on indian tv before.
#132 one of the males looks like GB’s assistant… Hally or some thing… i am sure GB nor piggy wanted publicity and it was circulated by the child’s parents. there are actaully some more pics in mumbai mirror and there are a lot of other ppl sitting around the table. so it could’ve been any one of them.
as for GB, Piggy, Shahid love triangle we’ll have to wait and see… no one actually confirmed Shahid was datin Piggy it was all rumoured!!! who knows!!!!

his assistant?? How do you know he has a male assistant?

StinkyLouise @ 05/05/2009 at 3:09 pm

Maybe she means “assistant “!

you mean like wink wink assistant? lol

Apparently, fans know nothing about the real GB, but all the haters do. I hate to break it to you people, but TMZ and other gossip mags/blogs/tabloids aren’t exactly the most reliable sources of information. You want REAL dirt on this guy, you’ll have to dig much deeper than that. Good luck to you.

Dirt? Prejudice is dirty… I will never love him less because of his sexual preferences… I admire this man… NO MATTER WHAT…
Break it for us? Haters don’t know more about Gerry than his fans. They simply don’ t understand the meaning of the words REAL FAN.
Gerry is a great person!!! I respect him… that’s it… period.

I don’t think Gerard is gay, but even if he was, big deal

just bored with the PR now @ 05/06/2009 at 2:46 am

In conclusion – I am just heartily bored with the GB PR Factory – If it was a Private Party – make it private – whoever GB really is (I think that we shall never know as he seems only to be a shell of just hype and PR).

Whatever he now does, he appears to have sold out to the PR machine to be a Hollywood celebrity (sure it is a big move from his Scottish roots) and has forgotten to be the ‘actor’ he wanted to be – unless he is acting the role of his life (that is the role of ‘Gerry Butler’ Movie Star)?

I am totally frustrated with the whole charade from the rabid fangurls and their unblinking defence of his every move, to the haters who proberly have something interesting to add, and those who are interested by his work but just get all the disperate accounts about him that add up to a confusing and bizarre portait of ‘Gerry Who?’!

Eventually I guess that each and every group of his fans, from the fangurls to the haters and the average joes who buy tickets to see is rather disperate and peculiar range of movies will all lose patience with all the hype and wonder who he really is?

This is just more boring and pointless PR and each and every person who posts here (good, bad and wierd) are just part of the the GB PR machine -They must be laughing out loud at all of us.

A pity – what a waste of time and of a life!

slum dog crap @ 05/06/2009 at 9:13 am

;D no i didnt mean wink wink!! well i dont know if this guy is still his assistant… he is the guy he intorduces as his assistant in the documentary of wrath of gods. there are another few vedio’s with him in it as well…. he looks like the same guy. da vedio’s are in youtube

@Slum dog crap @ 05/06/2009 at 9:32 am

Maybe it was just his assistant for that movie.

StinkyLouise @ 05/06/2009 at 9:57 am

A friendly warning to those of you clicking on links from Indian blogs and gossip sites, some of them have infections, Trojans etc……Make sure your anti-virus is updated or just avoid them.

To PR or not to pr? @ 05/06/2009 at 10:28 am

Come guys, we know hollywood is all about the pr, Gerry’s not superman, he can’t don on a cape and leap tall buildings with a single bound or feed the saving slum kids in India with a few loaves and 5 fish….what makes us the fans, the public, pay attention or look out or look up to these actors, is well yes…of course their movies, but what happens when all the good roles get given to the likes of Sean Penn and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, there are more movie stars than movies. I think Gerry’s choices have been reasonable considering the choices. You work with what you got, until the time is right, hopefully for him it will be “Burns” and going back for a stint to Scotland, his roots, might make him rethink where he’s heading in life and his career. He’s a smart man, who knows what he’s setting up for himself down the track, he might trade Hollywood for Bollywood. As for Priyanka Chopra, she is a very beautiful Hindu woman…I can’t see their friendship being anything more than that, of course Gerry would be attracted to her, but if he was seroius, I think he would have to become a Hindu to marry her. These bollywood stars aren’t even allowed to kiss on screen, let alone in public, remember the hype when Richard Gere kissed that bollywood actress/model in public. I’m sure he doesn’t like the way the pr machine is heading himself, maybe he has no choice or say. PR or not, the fact that Gerry caught up with the children from the Slumdog movie, shows me that they really touched his heart, he loved the movie and felt for their plight.

I agree with you.

find a new PR team @ 05/06/2009 at 12:06 pm

I am not sure that ‘Burns’ will be a big movie – looks like it will be an art house flick and very limited release – its supposed to be an epic poem or something – its all financed out of Scotland in honour of the 250′s Anniversary of Robert Burns’ death. Newsworthy in Scotland, but not holding my breath that it will make it further than the Scottish Inland Border.

I also have to say that GB apparently turns down a great many scripts – so what he gets seems to be what he chooses. I am sick of all the PR deluge – often not helped by GB himself – including the TUT stuff afirming that the role in TUT this summer is ‘him’ (that is a chauvanistic, manwh*ring, womanizer – mind you so was Robert Burns), and he seems to live that image up to the full, as countless blogs, gossip sites and his own interviews might suggest. Now we have the ‘He’s just a big soft puppy’ (fangurls words not mine) which seems too contrived for words.

What are the rest of those of us who are neither fans nor haters to think. I agree with #146/142 in that he seriously needs to get off this particular PR bandwagon and do some re-grouping and find reality once again. And as far as Philip Seymour Hoffman and (recently) Sean Penn et al are concerned, great movies, but niether they behaving like an ‘immature moron’ (#52) (so maybe there is a hint here for GB).

Feel negative about this post, but like those posting above, I just feel that he is quickly losing his way, and although the fangurls will forgive him everything, the box offices may not long term.

To PR or not to pr? @ 05/06/2009 at 12:54 pm

@148
You make some very good points, the only thing I would just like to point out is that Sean Penn and Phillip Seymour Hoffman even though great actors in their own right, do not affect their fan base the way Gerry does, whether its because they are not as good looking as Gerry, or they are married/ have partners and so the fans don’t fantasy about them the same way they do with Gerry. There’s just something about Gerry, that keeps most hanging in or hanging on, for whatever reason, either its clever PR timing or he redeems himself in some way ever so slightly. Anyway even if he is in real life like the character he plays in TUT, the truth of the matter is, even though I haven’t obviously seen the movie yet, I got a feeling that the ending will go either one of two ways, he changes his ways to become the kind of man Heigl falls for or he realises that he will only get the kind of girls that fall for manwh*ring womanizers. My fav saying is “if you always do what you have always done, then you’ll always get what you always got”. He’s had Alan Siegel as his agent for years, maybe he needs to change agents, cos he will always get what he’s always got, “mediocre”, when he could get great.

I think GB is too loyal to his friends and business partners to boot any of them unless they would do something to stab him in the back. He just may be too nice for his own good in Hollywoodland.
The man does have something that draws his fans in and keeps the majority hanging on. I’d say it’s a combination of looks and personal charisma. While Penn, Hoffman and others may draw people to some of their acting roles, GB has a more personal effect on people. Those who get hooked want to know every detail of his life.
