Gerard Butler Visits The Village Idiot

Gerard Butler Visits The Village Idiot

Gerard Butler is all smiles as he exits The Village Idiot restaurant in Hollywood on Wednesday (May 20).

The 39-year-old actor was apparently so caught up in smiling for the cameras that he got into his car and attempted to leave without his keys that the valet tried to give him.

Last week, Gerard was charged with misdemeanor battery after allegedly getting into a scuffle with a paparazzo. Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman said he faces up to six months in jail if convicted. Gerard‘s manager, Alan Siegel, said that the actor was forced to have his driver stop the car after a paparazzo repeatedly sped through red lights and almost hit two pedestrians.

    I heard Gerry was after Priyanka Chopra but whether they are now a couple or not I don’t know. He is so hot; I’ve been a huge fan of him ever since I saw him in POTO.
    Gerry is the sexiest man alive and all us GALS know it!

  • wow

    @GERRyishot:

    I think my I.Q. went down a couple of points just reading that.

  • Sandy

    Gerry Butler will be AROUND in the business as long as he wants
    to be. He is gorgeous, getting more so every day, he is intelligent,
    getting more so every day, he is talented, getting more so every day.
    He has mass appeal: doing every genre in films imaginable from
    musical to kids movies, to action films to romcoms, all to perfection.
    He makes any character believable and REAL. His characters take
    on a life of their own. And his fan base is 17 MILLION worldwide.
    He is known as well in Japan as he is in India as he is in Canada as
    he is in the US. People see his sweet spirit as well as his other
    attributes. Only the simple minded see him differently, or the jealous.
    He just smiles and keeps doing his thing, which is to make movies.
    Love him absolutely. He is a REAL man, not just a movie star. Don’t find many of those around anymore.

    I thought when I read ” The Village Idiot,” Jared was referring to Gerard himself, which makes sense, because he is a lumbering dudderhead. The guy is ugly and bloated looking all the time. Thank godness he’s a star, otherwise no woman would give him the time of day.

  • s.d.

    I meant dunderhead.

  • no he isn’t

    @Sandy:

    Uh, he is NOT well known in India. When he was at the GQ party, no one knew who he was until finally someone explained that he was in “300″ and then it was whispered throughout the party…
    He is also NOT a household name in the US or Canada.

    You’re “love him absolutely” identifies you. You are one of his more vocal fangurls onGALs, which is fine. But don’t overstate his popularity just because you desire it to be so.

  • Pellegrino

    @Yea…ok:
    me too, sweetie.

  • Sally tomato

    He’s neither a dunderhead nor a god, but a guy with some talent, lots of possibilities, some very nice eyes and a good work ethic.

    Well. How interesting , all this chatter! I dropped in on another thread to see what the real G. B. has been up to . What emotion and drama he inspires ! So what’s up about that ? Surely it has to do with more than just his pretty face . And despite what fans girls claim about his depth – Sorry ! Just don’t see that evidenced anywhere . Other than in some of his acting . Hmmm , I did say acting.
    I have a theory . Maybe right on , maybe B.S. Is Gerry representative of that high school boy we all had a mad crush on ? You know the one – Goodlooking , cool , maybe slightly mischevious , a sort of “bad boy but good at heart ” type ? And when you finally went on a date , all you got was a horndog who wasn’t really interesting or that special after all… But you STILL lusted after him anyway ?? Cause he was just so dadgum CUTE !!
    Well, maybe I’m all wrong and Gerry is a mature man of depth and quality , but as of now , I just don’t see it . He’s a mortal , he’s flawed . Like you and me .
    I wish him well. Fangirls and haters too. There are more important isuues facing our planet . I’m off to those sites. Bye !

    To “Marketsite Madam”…RNR was only in 800 theatres due to slimy CEO Warners’ chief Frenchie Shortie (not his name) who didn’t think American audiences would “get ” it. I had to go to another state (a two-and-a-half hour drive to see it in Lexington, KY!!!!!! I saw it twice in a row, but I then had to go back home. More fans would have seen it if they had played it in more theatres! Jackman’s “Wolverine” was in over 4000 theatres…RNR didn’t get a chance to thrive. It did win Best British Film from the Empire Magazine in the UK>

  • Carmen

    He’s sexy. I would let him hit it.

  • Crazy 88′s

    @Sandy:
    Please stop inflating this man’s fanbase and his merits. Gerard Butler is a C-Lister at best. His fan base is nowhere near 17 million if it were, then his box office returns would put him along side Will Smith & Tom Cruise. I can respect the fact that he’s your fantasy and you wish the best for him but let’s not interject too much of the make believe into the issue. The truth is that he is marginally talented and makes mediocre films. Although he did well in “300″, the film was a hit mainly because of the popularity of the graphic novel, Frank Miller’s loyal fans and the remarkable CGI. Oh and please stop saying that people are jealous of him because they happen to see through the B.S. that you can’t (or won’t allow yourself). There are plenty of actors in Hollywood that have careers that are hot as Hell, who have talent to burn and have youth and looks on their side. Sadly, Gerard Butler does not bid well in any of those categories.

  • zzzzzzzz

    I have to agree with some points you make Crazy 88′s..
    I thought Gerry did better in his earlier career..Films, like The Jury, Shooters, Please…and 300 was fabulous..Yes, the graphics is what made that film but I have to say..Gerry’s solo battle dance was classic. He did work hard for that flick..building a spartan look with body building etc..I think, at times, over doing it..and I’m still holding out a chance for him on future projects like Law Abiding Citizen and Gamer. Maybe he’ll surprise us all….maybe…I still would like to think so..

    He maybe a C-lister but some of the A-listers movies I’ve seen lately aren’t that hot either…ALot of them have fizzled..I think Gerry has the talent to pull it through..if given proper scripts with the right story

  • zzzzzzzz

    Also..I forgot to add Dear Frankie..a quiet..yet great performance…not full of CGI and special effects…but still effective..:)

  • zzzzzzzz

    oh and I forgot Dear Frankie…a quiet movie…not full of CGI and special effects…yet it was effective and Gerry was great in it..

  • Sugar

    This man doesn’t deserve all this crap from you people. Why don’t you go and harass the alcoholic, racist homewrecking celebreties instead

  • Joan

    So why can’t he be private. Who wants everything all over the paper.s I think it’s sweet that he wants to protect her. A Gentleman is our Gerry, well bred and refined. Bit more of that wouldn’t hurt. Good luck with Burns Gerry. Love ya. Joan (A FAN) xxHug.

  • brazilian woman

    I’m a loyal fan of this adorable man.
    He has a lot of loyal fans here in Brazil. There are also many blogs dedicated to him but sometimes what counts is quality not quantity.
    I’ve loved Gerry and held him in my heart since 2005 and I’ll never forget the day he kissed me and how nice he was with all his fans in Rio de Janeiro (2007).
    I’m a happy woman, I live in a lovely city by the sea, I have an adorable family, I’m a normal person and I’m in love with Gerry, I respect and support him and I always will. What’s wrong with that?
    He has the right to keep his private live just for himself, doesn’t he? …don’t you, too?
    Thanks JJ… Gerry is gorgeous in these photos…… India did him good!
    #23… #21… #1… #3… #4… #7… #9… #12… #18… #19… Same here!

    PS: Yes, I have a lot of time to do whatever I want… and it’s a pleasure for me to come to this place, all of you are cool… even when your opinions are different from mine.

  • enough

    i agree with #59. gerry has the bad boy appeal. some people want to protect these guys, other’s love to beat’em up, some like to analyze them. it’s very interesting (and educational) to read everyone’s views but this guy really is an empty shell.
    love ya all, but have had enough of this lame character.

  • THE ANALYST

    I like to analyze the posts that analyze GB

  • lmao

    #68: Just how naive do you need to be to think he protects a woman by hiding her? That is such BS. A gentleman? LOL. You really have a weird notion of a gentleman. A gentleman that denies his girlfriend, cheats on her, publically declares he wants to f*** another woman and constantly fuels the manwhoring rumors.

  • Sister Foxy Loxy

    I’d let him throat-hammer me until my eyes bleed.

  • so what

    if there is one thing I know it is that Gerard has very loyal fans, but I am glad he has even more loyal friend..
    There could be a screenplay written with all your bad and hatefull comments and all the crazyness you come up with..you are only here to make trouble and make people sad..

  • lol

    #74: At the contrary, my dear. We are here to tear off your rose-colored glasses, LOL. Keep on believing what you want, but this is a public gossip board and not a censored fansite, so if you can’t stand the heat don’t go near the fire. And stop lecturing us on what we can or can’t say here.

  • agree

    #71
    I agree. I really enjoy the lengthy posts (if you can actually get thru them) that give me carpal tunnel syndrome just looking at them.

  • agree

    I hope they at least have voice recognition software.

  • hah

    #74

    How exactly does one make trouble on a message board?? so dramatic……

  • @72

    I agree…..what woman would put up with being “hidden”? None – if he was/is so worried about her, then hire security. He can afford it.
    On the other hand he went to India with 4 male “friends”. ?????
    It is said you should visit the Taj with someone you’re in love with. He saw it with male friends. Geez.

  • tish

    just want to say…who cares if he has a girl/boyfriend or not?! i just like him…maybe, because he is an attractive looking man and a good actor too. Everyone of you takes this way too serious…he is simply a man who is private…nothing wrong with that! Let’s all be glad that he is making movies that we all can enjoy.

  • gillianfey

    What Tish said. Thanks, Tish.

  • @80

    Unfortunately, that’s the problem with him. He’s not making movies anymore we all can enjoy.

  • lol

    Agree – and saying I want to keep his private life private is a bunch of bull. Always getting your picture taken is not very private…i.e leaving clubs. please the only thing he want to keep private is

    give me a

    G
    A
    Y

  • dontthinkso

    #83: If he was gay, why would he even willingly subject himself to these kinds of rumors all the time with his antics? The “hidden” girlfriends and dates? Wouldn’t it be much easier for him to have a steady beard then?

  • #84

    lol – take off your rose colored glasses.

  • Indian Hotel Toilet Cleaner

    Thank you for the big tip and I am pleased the dysentery helped you lose weight but please remember to clean up after yourself Mister filthy germ-spreading talent vaccum. Goodness gracious me! if there wasn’t a recession going on I’d quit, I am that disgusted with what I found in the bathroom after you left.

    I have three requests firstly, please wash with water after you finish your behind business in future and secondly never ever come back to my sacred country. we hate all British peoples. there is reason we kicked filthy basttards out in 1947 after 200 years of enslavement! Thirdly please stop faking the accent. There is only one famous Scottish person in the world and that is Mel Gibson!!

    Good bye and good riddance sir!

  • hah

    #84

    I doubt he knows or cares what people are saying about him on message boards.

  • I wonder

    how long before he gets face bloat again.

  • @83

    Here we go again. Where’s the proof? How come no guy has ever talked and outed him then?

  • @87

    I’m sure if what #83 said was true he and his management WOULD care. It starts on the message boards and finally makes its way into the big papers. Just wait until he starts filming with Aniston. His personal life will be under scrutiny like never before.

  • I wonder

    Cuz everyone he meets has to sign a non-disclosure agreement…..

  • hah

    stuff /stories have been floating around a while about him and nothing has hit the BIG papers yet. Whatever those are. The only people that read this stuff are his fans or anti-fans – and that is a very tiny percentage of the gen pop. Seriously doubt he or his management care what is posted here!!

  • lol

    #91: LOL, that’s hilarious! So he’s picking up someone at a club and just when they’re about to do “it” he comes up with a non-disclose agreement to sign before anything happens? Just image that, LOL… And why would anyone sign something like that? Does he say “Sorry, if you don’t sign it you don’t get to bang me?” He’s the one who wants to have sex, LOL.

  • #92:

    You’re right, things haven’t hit the big papers YET, but you never know when that might change. He could have another box office hit (although highly doubtful) or his collaboration with someone like Aniston could put him in the spotlight – we’ve already seen a glimpse of what’s to come a couple of weeks ago. And then these old stories and rumors will be dug up again. So he and his PR people would be wise to care and make sure there’s not too much dirt to be found.

  • hah

    Everyone he meets in a club has to sign?? Hope he uses recycled paper……………

    #93 What a turn-off LOL. A butleration in its truest sense (look it up on urban dictionary . com) Almost as hilarious as Diddy tweeting whilst having “tantric sex”.

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Butleration

  • http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Butleration anonymoose

    Butleration

    The tendancy to create remarks that would invariable stop the act of sex in its tracks.

    The person committing the butleration is (the) butler. After the butleration, the target victim(s) become(s) butled. This is not to be confused with the profession of servitude.

    A butleration does not nessecarily occur during sex, but can occur at any time of the day and can be aimed at anyone unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of the butler. However, the butleration’s ability to end sex, even just before an orgasm, is used to gauge wether the remark is in fact a butleration. The act of butleration can sometimes result in a kiggins from both sexes.

    The trait to be able to commit a butleration is genetic and is usually passed down by the male population, with few cases in women. However, anyone possesing the dominant variant of this gene will almost certaintly be unable to reach orgasm with a partner unless their mouth is taped up during sex. This means that only carriers of the gene are able to pass the gene on.

    When butlerations do happen during sex, most are forgiven with a giggle. Some, however, can cause serious repurcussions in relationships.

  • StinkyLouise

    Hey babe, hate to interrupt you orgasm, but do you mind signing this paper! Bwahahahahah!
