Gerard Butler & Jennifer Aniston: Just Friends!

Gerard Butler & Jennifer Aniston: Just Friends!

Gerard Butler is debunking rumors and telling the world that his Bounty costar Jennifer Aniston is just a friend and nothing more. Gerry, 39, tells People:

On the rumors that he’s romancing Aniston: “That is just annoying. People say I’m always dating so and so, and sometimes it’s three people in one day. “I’m trying to make movies, work hard and do my best. Then this kind of thing happens and people start to associate me more with that. It gets ridiculous.”

On Aniston’s character: “She is one classy lady. Everyday I go to work with her I’m always surprised about how cool, easy and down to earth and real she is.”

On working with Aniston: “I’m in New York right now filming and I’m in heaven. I can’t always say that about movies, but to be filming this romantic comedy with Jennifer and a story that made my side split when I read it – I’m lucky. I’m happy as a pig in s—, as they say.”

This morning, Jen was nominated for an Emmy Award in the category of Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on NBC’s 30 Rock. Congrats, Jen!

    Sorry about the BET thing. She is a piece of work. She doesn’t even realize how foolish she makes herself look. Oh well…on to better things.
    .
    I was glad that something was said about all the rumors with Jen and Gerry. All the tabs were making both of them miserable and really stirring up the haters big time. I like that they were both respectful to each other. Gerry can sometimes speak without thinking and it can backfire. I was glad his comments were well thought out.

  • um…

    @Tammy: Tammy @ 07/16/2009 at 10:22 pm I feel sorry for her. They say she is classy but non of them wants to be with her.
    ————————
    So true! I don’t know any man who stick around and say this about her. They all say this on the way out. Evem Bradly said that when denying a relationship she confirmed

  • anne marie

    @NO: Mangement has grossed almost 1 Million dollars worldwide as opposed to Nicole Kidman’s film “Fur” which only grossed $270,000 some dollars. Same situation, both were small budget independent films. So Management as grossed more than Fur……go shout that on the Nicole Kidman board.

  • NO

    @anne marie: Now you compare her with Nichole Kidman an oscar winner and someone who is a worldwide star? A criticaly successful movie with the bomb in every angle? You got some gut girlfriend.

  • anne marie

    @anne marie:

    Correction: Fur has grossed only $223,202.

  • anne marie

    @NO: All I’m saying is every actor at one point in their life has financial bombs. Unfortunately Management was not released wide but limited. Yes Nicole is an Oscar winner but she has had more financial bombs than Jennifer ever has had. And if you want, I can post Kidman’s flops to Jennifer’s and you’ll see who the winner is in that category.

  • jo

    Have you notice how every co-stars say exactly same thing about Jen? Always use the word “class” and “down to earth” as if those are the words Jen’s PR are forcing her co-stars to say. Never beautiful, never intelligent…always classy. For someone who dates John Mayer, tans, and wears clothes that are meant for 20 year old, “classy”? Please!! GB was required in his contract to say those words!!!

  • anne marie

    @jo:

    Well I believe Brad Pitt also used the same description of his ex-wife. So if more than one person can see the classiness in Jennifer, then perhaps it’s true.

    “Management was not a commercial success and did not open at #1.”
    ***************************************************************************
    1. “Management” is an indie movie. Not at all commercial, to begin with…
    2. If not opening at #1 is a sign that JA is a bad actress, or “box-office poison”…then poor idols of yours…how many of their latest movies oppened at #1?

  • Sally

    @liz:
    Anne Marie had already answered so well to your so bad informed comment, but I just wanna say one more thing about this line you wrote: “She plays Rachel Green in EVERY role.” Please, how about try to watch “Rockstar”, “The Good Girl”, “Friends With Money” and “Derailed” before pointing fingers? You could avoid to look fool by saying these silly things like you did, ok? It would be great.

    @Sally:

    Sorry, but I just can’t agree with you; I don’t really see much intelligence in a person whose nick contains “manless.” Is it supposed to be an insult to a woman? I really hope Manlesston is not a woman – because if she is, she’s no better than all those chauvinistic pigs out there.

    Hi Sally,

    I don’t know if you are on the West Coast or not,but Jen is in “Derailed”
    on the Lifetime Channel at 9:00 PM. I really liked that movie. It sure was different. I’am going to watch it again.

  • Sally

    @NO:
    About your comment #104, Anne Marie isn’t comparing Jen to Nicole, but their independent movies and the ammount of money that each one made… please, don’t you try to messy things here. We are inteligent people. Anne Marie didn’t say any of it. Try to read her comment again with more careful before judge so quickly. Or if you already read it carefuly and you’re just trying to bother us, we are not stupid, you know? We can realize what she wanted to say with her comment, even when you try so hard to put words in her mouth. Silly of you!

    **************************************************************************************

    You haven’t been posting on JJ very long, Sally, so let me take some time to fill you in.
    .
    One of the oldest canards the Jolie-Pitt haters keep spewing out is that Angelina is “box office poison”, that her movies bomb, that nobody wants to see them, etc. etc.
    .
    Then when you come back at them with the numbers for Jolie’s films vs. Aniston’s films and show them that Jolie’s films have made two to three times what Aniston’s movies have brought in, they drag up A Mighty Heart as if this one movie represented the sum total of Angie’s films.
    .
    Now granted, AMH was not a hit in any sense of the term. It only made $9 million. But people who live in glass houses have no business throwing stones, and Management was a prime weapon for the J-P fans to slam the Aniston fans back with.
    .
    If AMH was a bomb, Management was a thermonuclear meltdown. Never mind making silly excuses that AMH had premieres and Management didn’t. AMH premiered at Cannes in 2007 and was a hit at that film festival. Management premiered at Toronto in 2008 and it was immediately apparent that they had a stinker on their hands. For the next six months after its premiere, it foundered around like a beached whale, unable to find a distributor.
    .
    The rest, as they say, is history. Management ended up making only one-tenth of what AMH grossed at the box office.
    .
    After that, Aniston’s fans tried to say “Changeling” was a bomb. Most studios would love to have a movie that cost $50 million to make earn $112 million. And we won’t even get into “Wanted”, which was a huge hit by any standard.
    .
    Now we come to the big battle between Marley & Me and CCOBB. There is no denying that in its first two weekends, M & M did very well indeed. But Aniston’s fans seemed to think this represented some kind of karma for Brad dumping Aniston. Saner heads tried to tell them that once the Oscar nominations started rolling in, and both movies opened overseas, CCOBB would leave M & M in the dust. Which, as it turned out, is exactly what happened. All of a sudden you didn’t hear any more talk about karma.
    .
    What it boils down to is that Angie and Brad are at a point in their careers where they can do just about anything they want to and the major studios are breaking down their door to get them to play in their films, whereas Aniston has to bankroll her own films because no major studio will greenlight her, especially after the fiasco of Management. Of the 100 most bankable actors in Hollywood, Angie and Brad are tied for #2, whereas Aniston is down the list at #55 or something like that. If Traveling, or whatever they are calling that movie now, has the same fate as Management, she might as well pack it in. She never was much of a movie actress anyway. When all is said and done, she’s a TV sitcom star. Nothing more.

  • jo

    To anne marie,

    Then, how come if she is so “classy” she dates people like John Mayer and Vince Vaugh and gets dumped by them? Wouldn’t “classy” people date other “classy” people?

    Her lifestyle and type of men she seems to be dating lately tells me she is not “classy” but “trashy”.

  • bet

    jo

    you do not know a person who he is from outside, you do not judge a person by the cover, She taught they are good giuy and it did not work you move on as classy person. a in my book she make a big mistake landing with the pervert.

    @bet:
    Bet, I love Jen, really, I admire her a lot as an actress and as a person. She is an example to me, as I said before. And I’m so upset like you do when I read all the cruel, nasty, shallow and silly things they try to say about Jen. I mean, it’s completly for free. The “haters” don’t even know Jen and they are so closed minds! But I must to agree with K.G. that ManLESSton, I likely doesn’t seem to be part of the “haters”. OK, I know she may be a fan of Angelina and you can don’t like her idol, it’s your totaly right. But at least with her we can have a respectful debate, if you try so. Sometimes I see you’re so defensive here, and I really understand it, because the “haters” are a pain in the ass. So boring and nasty. But she said once she doesn’t hate Jen. She may not to be a fan, but she can talk without hate, and it’s a huge thing because at least, even when you disagree, you can do it with respect. Think about it, please. I’m not saying to you what you have to do. No. I’m not arrogant. Who am I to say something like this? I’m just asking, in a polite way, to you think that maybe we can talk with somebody that doesn’t agree with us without angry. And it can be a good thing in such a hostile world. Don’t you think? I really hope you understand my point because we both like Jen so much and I’m sure we both also wish to Jen only the best!

    thank you, aleast here is the real fan of jen. there are here a lot of fake fans of jen. We jen fans we do not like chauvinistic pig. We are strong women.
    —————————
    Yes I am a woman. And no I don’t think it is derogatory. You are all screaming on here the Jen does not need a man. I happen to agreed.
    .
    Why would you think it is chauvinistic? Women are not defined by men. At the time I created the nickname, you fans were hotly contesting that very fact. So it is a nickname. I won’t change it because I own my comments. There are too many on all these threads that change their usernames to suit the snarky comments they make.
    .
    Did I use good judgement with the name, maybe not. But I have made my bed and will live with it.
    .
    As for you BET, turning on other fans because they will not stoop to your level shows how immature you really are. Whining, why the love for the hater? Who says I am a hater. I don’t wish Jen ill. The only things about her that I take issue with is 1) I don’t believe she is that good of an actor. Yes she is successful and can open at #1 but that doesn’t make her a great actor. 2) She doesn’t control her PR people very well. They have placed her into many embarrassing situations that she should never have been in. She needs to remember that they work for her. There are other minor issues but they just don’t matter.
    .
    I enjoy discussion with those who have passion, whether I agree with them or not, who can articulate their facts and feelings in an adult manner. Which is impossible for you.
    .
    If they don’t jump to your defense quickly maybe you need to take a look at how you appear on this thread. Irrational, hate-filled, unintelligent, and REDUNDANT. You spew the same things over again and again and again. You don’t even comment on the thread currently being discussed.
    .
    So to you little hater, go scream in your corner. The adults are getting tired of you.
    .
    .
    Also, Anne Marie, you were right. Jen creamed Nicole in the Box Office race in 2008.

    Choices Slip Away

    One of the many things that make Cary Grant feel angry and humiliated in Bringing Up Baby is Katherine Hepburn’s decision to refer to him “Mr. Bone.” I thought of this because poor Jennifer Aniston must feel angry and humiliated by the tabloid media’s characterizing her as “Mrs. Bone” — i.e., a woman who rarely if ever sleeps alone.

    The best acting she ever did was in The Breakup, but after that, what? I don”t like submitting to tabloid chatter as topics of mosquito conversation in my head, but when I think of Aniston I really don’t think of her work. I think of her bouncing-ball personal life. The associative dramas in her life aren’t about performances but when if ever will she finally stop shopping around? She’s like a 21st Century incarnation of what the romantically excitable Mary Astor and Tallulah Bankhead were known for in their day. Their cavortings, I mean. Except Bankhead killed in Lifeboat and Astor had her Maltese Falcon performance to point to.

    The fact is that even among those who’ve never so much as glanced at a supermarket rag Aniston’s rep is that of (a) someone whose prime artistic opportunity days are probably behind her, (b) who’s never going to make another Good Girl (which wasn’t that great to begin with) and © who, at age 40, is basically competing with Sandra Bullock for Sandra Bullocky-styled romantic roles and that’s all. The only thing she might be ale to do and really get rolling with again is another TV series.

    A woman who’s been in therapy for as many years as she has and who’s always getting dumped must have some serious issues. She must have a side that only her boyfriends/husband sees and no one else because other wise I don’t get it. How come such a “great, down to earth” person is always getting dumped? She must have some major issues no doubt.

    ManLESSton is a lot less offensive to me than referring to her as a Man. I don’t have any affection for those who call her Maniston, fugly, etc. Commenting on her choice in life at this time is inconsequential to me. I would rather do that than degrade her as a woman.

  • Sally

    @mimilala:

    As I said, I don’t like her nick as you. And almost of all my comments here said exactly what you also mean about this silly “man” thing. It’s sad and shallow thoughts to me. I totaly agree with you: a woman doesn’t need desperately a man to be happy. Thank God we are in this century and we can be free to take all the time we want or need to find our true love. Or if it doesn’t happen, there is others ways to be really happy, not only by marriage and children. I absolutely agree. See, I’m divorced too. It was painful, like almost every break-up is, but I’m live and doing fine. And I’m the one who asked for it because I wasn’t happy. So I really don’t think at all you need to have a relationship to be happy. In fact, I know how hard it can be. Marriage is not easy at all. I think some people are too naive and it’s a pity, because the world sells us a lot of illusions about love and this bring us a lot of problems then. So, this is my honest experience of life and my opinion. This is one of the reasons why I understand so well the posture of Jen. Why to have someone just to prove the world you can? She obviously can. Just look at her! But there’s no meaning in be with someone just to have company or to prove you are ok when you want to live truely, as Jen seems to want (and so do I). Love happens or not, you can’t force it, I think. And you can be happy by working, traveling, reading, hanging out with your friends, knowing new interesting people and do whatever makes you feeling good with yourself. Right? :)

Jen is my reference of life. She is brave and awesome. I so completly admire her that I couldn’t tell you how much. And I think she is a great and talented actress that deserves to be always recognized (like she already is) and a very beautiful, smart, funny and sensitive woman, whom I like a lot. She is absolutly incredible to me!

  • Autumn M

    @Jill

    Yes, something is definitely a miss here with Aniston. Her fans are such hypocrites though, whenever she does have a man, they all say how Jen is so great, Jen is so beautiful and happy, how she’s so hot and can have anyone,etc. When she doesn’t, they say oh it’s because she’s an independent woman, she doesn’t need a man, etc. Then of course they usually blame the guy and say that Jennifer is better off without him when not long before they were praising him. They are full of it.

    Something is wrong with her. Her fans can keep denying it, but a truly stable, wonderful, amazing, incredible person that they all like to make Jen out to be would not be getting dumped like this all the time and having so many problems in their relationships. How come she hasn’t been in a serious relationship since Brad though? hmmm….

    Unstable, selfish, controlling and emotional issues. That’s what i’m thinking.

I know that Angelina also isn’t a part, but you know, it happens so often that I’m getting used to find the “haters” here, some of fans of Angelina that are constantly trying to attack Jen just because she was married with Brad and blablabla… well, you know all the history. It’s so sick, all of this. Jen is nominated to the Emmy Awards and then you’re so envy and you’re so angry that you seem like babies crying! What does Gwyneth have to do with it? The woman is married for years, as far as I know, and have two kids, let her alone. Neither Jen nor Gwyneth are resumed by the relationships they had with Brad Pitt. For God sake, how more obsessive this can be? Geez!

  • Autumn M

    LOL@Sally

    Who on earth would anyone be jealous of Jennifer? A 40 year old woman with no kids, no man, always getting dumped and keeps playing similar roles in movies. Especially not Angie fans like myself would never be jealous. Angie has a wonderful life, countless awards, including an Oscar dear, something Jen will never get. No one’s jealous of JA.
