Gerard Butler Hits Whitney Studio Party

Gerard Butler Hits Whitney Studio Party

Gerard Butler suits up for the 2009 Whitney Studio Party at The Whitney Museum of American Art on Monday (October 19) in New York City.

Earlier in the day, the 39-year-old Scottish actor dropped by It’s On With Alexa Chung. He admitted he got starstruck by Robert DeNiro and Dame Shirley Bassey, who sang the theme song to the James Bond film Goldfinger (1964).

    @Re: Shanna and Blowgate:

    He’d be wise not to have gotten anything more than a blowjob or jerk off from Shanna the soulless; no telling what that slag has cruising her hozone. interestingly enough, someone using Shanna Moakler’s name showed up on this site, in another thread, a couple of days ago, claiming that Ger only likes “blowjobs or jerkoffs”. Considering how many of these chicas are diseased, fame seeking and gold digging this would actually mean Ger is pretty smart.

    @Ballerina:

    i don’t think he’s had any work done but i wouldn’t be surprised. he was photographed ten days ago with his manager in front of a medial building in beverly hills where the majority of the practitioners are plastic surgeons. maybe it was for his manager (who is creepy clooking, by the way).

    as for the gay thing, maybe he’s bi. he hits on anything that’s female so maybe it is just an act. there are more and more rumors about his sexuality.

  • sugar

    His face actually looks really fresh here, much better then the bounty pics, so he could have done something (and done it well because he looks good) or it’s just resting and enjoying life@

  • ß € § §

    @sugar: Sugar luv stop being boring… you must talk trash about him like the others…Anything will do.. just call him something tame like a ‘silly poopoo-head’ or something

    You’re letting the thread down by being civilized.

  • Cotton

    @sugar:

    It’s hard to stay mad at him isn’t it? I think he really is just enjoying himself right now. I hate to judge him too harshly because mistakes will be made. The wrong things will be said. The wrong moves will be executed. It has to be hard for him to live his personal life discretely when the paps are constantly on his ass, documenting his every move. I’m just disturbed by some of the stories of how he treats women. Very disconcerting. I don’t care who you are, a man shouldn’t treat women like pieces of meat nor should he act as if he has a sense of entitlement…but at the same time he probably has so many bitches throwing themselves at him.

  • LMAO

    I love this thread!

  • Nemo

    @Cotton:

    my friend actually asked him if he was single because so many women threw themselves at him and that made him feel like it was all too easy. he said maybe it had become easier and something else like being followed around all the time by paps that it made it difficult to have a relationship. because, like, being demeaning to women and hitting on anything female is less enticing for the tabloids. he’s giving us more fodder by his BS.

  • sugar

    I think he is like his dad, who could never settle down and left his wife and kids behind. He is just bloody restless. Men like that shouldn’t marry/.

  • glance in the mirror before..

    …before you go out.

    does he honestly think he looks good in that coat and hat? OMG whoever told him he looked stylish in that gear needs to get their a*** fired pronto! if he came to my town wearing that, he would get jumped on by the thugs!…

  • memei

    yum. Freshly shaven

  • PAPS MY ASS

    The paps don’t follow him everywhere. It’s only since the Bounty that he’s become tabloid news worthy. When he was shooting LAC a pap said he couldn’t get anyone to buy his photos of Gerry.
    It looks like the paps following him is just the new excuse for not having a relationship.
    Clooney does it best. He has a girlfriend for a while then they both move on. He knows the attraction for her is his fame and excepts that. He gets the privilege of being with a beautiful woman. It works for everyone.
    Gerry just doesn’t want to loose control and except that the women he’s with will use his fame. Big damn deal; that’s how he gets the girls in the first place. He should just play along. The problem is he can’t be monogamous for even a few months like Clooney can.

    Alexa Chung impregnated by Gerard Butler just from eye contact
    Tue, 20/10/2009 – 09:38 By Mopsa

    Alexa Chung is obviously still following the Victoria Beckham diet of pomegranates and frozen peas at the Whitney Fall Gala and Studio Party at the Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC last night. But it would seem that poor feeble Chung needs all the strength she can get to fend off fellow partygoer and God’s gift to all women (after Johnny Borrell) Gerard Butler…

    Gerard Butler was reportedly flirting outrageously with Chung (who goes out with Alex Turner from Arctic Monkeys) during her MTV show recently, ‘It’s On With Alexa Chung’ (something Butler took a little too literally by the sounds of things).

    He interrupted Chung during the interview to tell her that she had “amazing eyes” and that had failed to notice how beautiful they were when they first met at the VMA awards.

    *Vomits*

    Alexa quipped:

    “No – you were just going on about my legs.”

    Touche! The presenter then told Butler that there was a Facebook group called ‘Gerard Butler can impregnate through looks alone’ (now she’s just asking for trouble) to which Butler replied:

    “I’m knocking you up – I think I’ve just knocked you up, actually.”

    If you can bare to read on, the pair then played a quiz in which Butler had to say ‘The Butler Did It’ as a yes answer.

    Asked if he had had a threesome in the past year, he replied “the Butler did it” before adding the, “The Butler pretty much always does it.” The suave so and so…

    What a twat.

    The pair had to attend the same party, and we’re not sure that panned out but they did have the distraction of Donatella Versace’s face and wrinkled, saggy arms to put them off…

    Also at the party Mischa Barton, Taylor Momsen, Shakira and Jennifer Hudson.

    Can’t stand this fairy boy. He’s been all over the place lately. . Can’t go to the f**King supermarket without seeing his ugly face staring back at me from a movie poster. When are folks going to wise up and start spitting at him in the street?

  • Nemo

    @Mr. Giggles:

    so not surprising. he told my friend that she looked devilish. lol!

  • Mia

    @Nemo:
    When and where did Gerry talk about Megan Fox??

  • sugar

    He’s a flirt, there is no doubt about that. But the rumours are getting crazy about him. If he is gay, he should just say he is bi. That way he saves face and doesn’t lose his female fans, while at the same time being with a guy if he wants.

  • Just asking…

    @Nemo: Does your friend work for a TV show? Why was she interviewing him? Just curious :)

  • time out now

    Just saw this on TweetMybog
    I couldn’t have put it better myself:
    this is the blog …

    “It was a big weekend for Gerard Butler. His movie Law Abiding Citizen opened at number two and he hosted Saturday Night Live. Too bad both of them sucked. And now he’s on notice.

    We’ve seen this sort of behavior before, most notably with people like Jude Law and Colin Farrell, guys who were made into leading men before they had time to prove that they had the chops for such a responsibility. Let lessons be learned from the past and let’s put Butler on probation.

    Why does this misbehaving star deserve to be grounded? Well, after some early success in a Tomb Raider movie and the title role in the abysmal film adaptation of Phantom of the Opera, Butler and his abs starred in the surprise hit 300, grossing half a billion worldwide and making a legion of fanboys, ladies, and gay men very happy in the process. Because of this crossover appeal, his handlers thought that he could simultaneously dabble in both action and romantic comedy. That could be true, but he hasn’t bothered to be in a good movie since 300. Crappy movies are crappy in any genre.

    With P.S. I Love You and The Ugly Truth, his rom-coms with Hilary Swank and Katherine Heigl respectively, were both box office flops and critical duds. Gamer, released last month to deafening silence, has barely made a mark and struggled to get past the $20 million mark. It has been a series of missteps for this Scotsman. Citizen, which costars Jamie Foxx, had a good showing at the box office, but critics lit into it, which means that it probably won’t rally much more in coming weeks.

    While not as bad as Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr or professional bad decision makers Nicolas Cage and John Travolta, Butler is headed down that path if we don’t intervene. If he can’t pull out a decent project or two then he will be banned from all movies, tabloids, red carpet affairs, awards ceremonies, and celebrity relationships. If he can stay out of the press for three years, he may be rewarded with the starring role on a CBS procedural. This is your punishment Butler, so you better shape up.

    Next year’s Jennifer Aniston comedy The Bounty could go either way. Aniston was in The Break Up, the best romantic comedy of the decade, but the quality probably had more to do with the writing and direction than her abilities. It better work out, because if not, Butler is well on his way to being an over-valued, over-paid star who can’t open anything bigger than a cereal box. If it does, along with maybe a prestige picture or a great cameo in a smaller film, then we will reinstate him into our good grace. Until them, he’s in a professional time out”

    i feel sorry for him. everyone is thrashing him on this thread for NO REASON . leave him alone you FREAKS! go get A LIFE!

  • 2005 fan

    Does anyone remember that story about Gerry having sex with Tara Palmer Tomkinson at some party or event in England in 2005? There quite a lot of talk about it on the fan boards back then.

  • Nemo

    @Mia:

    i read it on a website that he wanted her to call him and it was titled “gerard butler wants to bang megan fox”.

  • Nemo

    @Just asking…:

    she works for the film supplement of a european daily and she interviewed him for the ugly truth in london

  • jules

    @pippin:
    i’m sure people would stop trashing him if he would stop acting the way he does, like a JERK! I know a lot of old fans who used to adore him and NONE of them likes him anymore because of the way he is nowadays.

  • @2005 fan

    @2005 fan: Ummm….The Tara Palmer Tomkinson who used to be friends with the British royal family and then showed up drunk and showed her tits at Prince William’s birthday party????? WTF? Gerry slept with her too?! This guy is just too much.

  • Nemo

    @@2005 fan:

    Tara is not better, as you can telle about the tits flashing incident. she has slept with just about everyone.

  • highcottonquinn

    @jules: To be fair, this Mtv thing was the first interview flub(but what a doozy and I’m just going to hope not too many people noticed) he’s had this week. It’s just really awful for a 40 year old man to encourage that kind of thing among younger people like that. Although I do think he was baited and he probably just thought his reply was cute or snarky or whatever…For the most part, this week, he’s been his usual warm, chatty, witty self. This was some bad judgement on his part but I don’t think he should be lynched for it. Am I rationalizing? Who knows which rumors heard hear or anywhere are even true.

    Yeah but how many of them are just bitter because the reality is kicking in that they will never have a shot at this guy? I never heard so many awful things about Gerard until I came to this site. Ignorance, bliss, etc.? I guess if you take what you read at the fan sites who think Ger can do no wrong and then take what you read on a site like this where Ger can scarcely do anything right, then somewhere in the middle is the truth.

  • GBs hot bod is history!

    he looked really CHUBBY on SNL….like a syphilitic ball of lard….

    such a crying shame..
    he used to be so HOT ;(

  • HCQ

    @time out now:
    I’m sorry but The Ugly Truth has pulled down approximately $170 million worldwide and it had a budget of $38 million. That is not exactly what I would call a “flop”. Now, P.S. I Love You, on the other hand, I did not care for because:
    A. I’m not a Hilary Swank fan…at all.
    B. Gerard wasn’t in it enough; he just mostly narrated.

  • Not A Fan Anymore

    @Nemo: WTF? Megan Fox is almost twenty years younger than Gerry! He’s DISGUSTING! What a dirty perv. :(

  • Stinkylouise

    Testing……testing…….WTF happened to my comment?

  • Catastrophe

    Yeah I am not a “fan” anymore…just someone who can’t just “drive by” a train wreck

    ;-/
    When did Gerry become such a huge loser? Or has he always been one????

  • kp misses the humble butler

    @Pippin….Ay yay yay, I have countless of times stuck up for Gerry on some of these threads…and stood by his behavior and “quips”. But, this whole MTV thing really got to me. He should have kept his mouth shut and ignored some of the questions to save face. Now, look….a bunch of people are pretty much outraged that he went as far as he did. He is going to be 40, which means he should be taking some responsibility to a 20 yr something YOUNGER crowd and set an example by AT LEAST staying mum. But noooo, he had to brag like a jack@ss, not impressed.
    I’m waiting for the old Gerry to come back…maybe he should go see a shrink or something to work on himself and get back to us, he’s spinning out of control with his recent fame and it shows & hurts his once loyal fans.

  • Ugly Old Loser

    “Flirted outrageously??”
    How obvious is HE??!! Who creepily interrupts someone to tell them their “eyes are beautiful??”
    Thats just weird and is justs REEKS trying too HARD – he is trying too hard.

    I think he is bi. And is going through a “guy” phase. Bis do that sometimes…go through a girls phase or a guys phase.

    He has to be seeing men right now bc women would talk end of story. Twitter, facebook whatever. They would be doing it.

    i wonder if he and alexa ended up hooking up? wouldnt be surprising….

  • kp misses the humble butler

    AND…..I really hate to say this but, GB = DB?
    & that’s really hard for me to say that for once being such a big supporter.

  • GayFace

    His new ‘plastic surgery look’ has given him a touch of it dontcha think?

  • Stinkylouise

    @Ugly Old Loser : And men don’t talk? They’re worse than women. I have 5 brothers who don’t know the meaning of the word discretion.
    I think Alexa is shacking up with yet another musician, #5or #6, not sure.

  • kp misses the humble butler

    O! And is that jacket velvet again? lol, just sayin….
    Not liking that jacket with hat & sunglasses…wasn’t it nighttime?
    Too much goin on with that outfit.
    K, I’ll shut up now…lol

  • He was never humble

    If you ladies think he’s a bampot now, just imagine how out of control he’d get was when you added alcohol to the mix. lol I am pleased for him though. He’s done well for himself.

    (By the way, what is a DB?)

  • kp misses the humble butler

    @#90, I meant in interviews, he was a little more reserved and “clean cut” you know in times like when he did Nim’s Island or whatever.
    He wasn’t ranting and raving about his sexual status.
    DB is _____bag

  • http://. A FAN

    He just answered a dumb question in the lame way it was presented to him, but he doesn’t understand that sarcasm doesn’t go over to well with people.

    Regarding the hatred towards him for answering that question and not taking in mind the age of the viewing audience. I’ve never seen her show and don’t know the age range for her audience but she’s the HOST and should be chastised for even asking him that. Does she not know better? She should know the age range of her audience – right?

    And with all the crap that MTV spits out and all the sex on that channel – this should hardly be offensive to the ears of MTV fans just watch the Real World show or some of the other crap on MTV.

    Everyone simmer down and go see LAC.

    Gerard’s PR people should know when to call it quits for his interviews.

  • Great…a hate thread…

    OK, he was joking people! No need to burn your balloon-sized bras outside Gerry headquarters just yet. Put them back on and shut the f*** up.

  • kp misses the humble butler

    Good point #92…I still think he should’ve stayed mum about it & avoid looking like the creepy dude hitting on Alexa. If he wanted to hit on her…I’m sure he had time after the interview instead of during…not to mention she’s a little younger than him.

  • cubedweller

    Holy Kinks! Sit down with my coffee this a.m. and walk right into a sh!tstorm! I haven’t seen the interview, but I stand by my earlier comment – Butler runs his mouth way way too much, but he is a sarcastic bullsh!tter who lives to get reactions out of people, to wind them up and get attention. Who knows what he does in private – his business. Every time he sits down for an interview, whether he is being thoughtful and sensitive (Bonnie Hunt show), funny (Craig Ferguson), or trying for “hip” and provocative (MTV) – he is performing. It’s what he does. It’s who he is. And yes, his peeps really really need to make him shut it for a while, because this kind of stupidity is hurting him. He made a movie that people like, he made us laugh on SNL – now he needs to be quiet for a bit and not screw it all up.

    @90 – DB is doosh bag
    BTW What’s a bampot? I learn so many new words here;)

  • beth

    What’s with all the Gerard hating? Just because he’s 40, he has to be either married or have a steady gf? What about all those 40 some yr old cougars out there who’s linked to 30 some yr old losers whom shall remain nameless?

  • kp misses the humble butler

    #93 Balloon sized bras huh? shut the f up? who brought the tough kid?

  • beth

    another thing… at least he can act unlike someone who can’t act but keeps making same kind of bad movies over and over again.

  • Too dull, Fangurls!!

    @A FAN: Another example of the sad item called a ‘GB fan’ – who’s Great God Gerard can do no wrong. If, for example, he was involved in a sexu@l assault case, they would still likely leap to his defence, stating that the other party was at fault and to go and support him in his latest movie! (Ewwww) LOL.
    Despite GB’s media training (haha) his sarcasm misses the taste mark by a mile, and he seems to have less filters for his interviews by the minute. IMO, I think that the whole thing has gone entirely to his head. His PR team also needed to brief him on the age group of the audience and the time slot that it was aired etc – so don’t heap the entire balme on Alexa and MTV.
    He needs a long time out (years hopefully).
    And for those posters who say ‘what fools everyone is to be disgusted or suprised by him and ‘he’s just joking’ – GB has AGAIN proved that he is in no way funny … not even a tiny bit.

  • Over exposed

    @Too dull, Fangurls!!: Ok, maybe a little harsh – I don’t see any stories like that around, but GB seems to be dangerously overexposed.(Liked the comment about putting him on probation earlier). He’s in the middle of another whole month of publicity on more LAC premieres around the world.G has loads more opportunities to make a fool of himself everywhere in the next few weeks. Bored with him.
