Gerard Butler to Jimmy Kimmel: I Was A Carnie!

Gerard Butler to Jimmy Kimmel: I Was A Carnie!

Before hitting up Crown Bar, Gerard Butler makes an appearance at Live with Jimmy Kimmel in Los Angeles on Friday (September 4) to promote his new action flick Gamer (in theaters NOW).

The 39-year-old Scottish stud shared that after he graduated law school, he became a traveling carnie (slang term for a carnival employee). Gerry was responsible for the Wacky Wire booth, a game where you have to twist a metal ring around metal coils without having them touch each other. Jimmy had Gerry play the game and tried to distract him by asking him if he was dating Jennifer Aniston. Hilarious! Watch below –

Yawn…I’ve heard all those stories before. That thing about him being a carnie and the wacky wire, yeah, he told that story on Leno in 2005. Geez, can’t he come up with something new?

She is very pretty if she is……but, I wouldn’t think he would be that obvious. Maybe his assistant?

iheartthehero @ 09/05/2009 at 1:36 pm

As a sometimes carnie my self, I’m proud of him, but damn I wish our boys looked like him! :)

I wish someone would steal all his hats and throw them in a dumpster. He’s so cute, but those awful hats distract.

I didn’t know that about him. I really should IMDB him.


I have never gotten a gay vibe from him, but I am beginning to wonder about him and that guy (in the background of these shots) that is ALWAYS with him. East coast/west coast . . . he is always there it seems.

Thats too funny. I hope he’s not dating anistan, she is a loser.

he is yummy. so funny on kimmel. can a man be any hotter?
did anyone else find the scene when he peed into the gas tank erotic? phewwww.

@alison: of course you know aniston. i totally agree what a loser cute, beautifull, classy and rich to boot. IF ONLY I COULD BE SUCH A LOSER. and dating all those hot guys WHAT A LOSER. another jolie loon has spoken!

Let’s hope Gamer continues to do well. Gerry needs it to for the future…

Ahhhh, bless... @ 09/05/2009 at 4:01 pm

There is poor old blonde Danielle Spencer looking on lovingly at her beloved Gerry. Is it unrequited love? Don’t worry girl, the models he dates won’t last forever. You may have the last laugh.

I’ve noticed that guy too. He is known on Gerry’s IMDB board as ‘Fry Guy’. They gave him that nick-name when he was photographed with Gerry during the time when Gerry had a lot of root canal treatments in March 2008. The photo had his hand pinching a fry from Gerry’s plate.

According to many people who have actually met him, he is much cuter and funnier than Gerry (hard to believe, but true). They say his name is Nick B(something). You can find pictures of him and Gerry coming out of a club in 2007 (or 2008) on the GALS website, so it seems they have known each other for a few years now. He was recently seen with Gerry in Philly.

he’s hilarious. i love him. i’ll never think of krispy kremes the same way again.

@I’ve noticed that: Don’t know exactly which guy you are referencing, but I do see in pic #5, behind Gerry over his left shoulder, a tall guy in dark brown t-shirt and sunglasses, scruff….that’s one of Gerry’s Publicists his name is Rupert
Fowler. He is usually always with Gerry on publicity and Premiere events in Europe and Asia…just FYI. There are lots of shots of him w/G in Berlin Film Festival 300 event.

Who the hell is Danielle Spencer?

Also the woman in the orange dress is the wife of one of Gerry’s friends that is always with him I believe.

i met gerry, he’s as nice as could be. but clearly not a fan of the paps he kept shooting them dirty looks. he seeems like agreat guy.
