Gerard Butler & Jessica Simpson: Date Night?

Gerard Butler and Jessica Simpson stepped out together at the exclusive Soho House on Tuesday night (October 20).

“They were at a table with friends, but Jessica and Gerard, who sat next to each other, seemed to only be interested in each other and chatted for hours,” a spy told Page Six. “They were laughing and flirting and eventually left together, along with [her hairstylist Ken Paves].”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Gerry and Jess as a couple — HOT or NOT?

    @Fatty Mom-Jeans Jess: He is dumb as rocks. I know this trust me.

    And why should we “trust you”? Who are you? You are an anonymous stranger on an internet gossip board telling us to “trust you”. Reagan said, “trust but verify”. I trust Reagan more than you. Why? Because he was not an anonymous stranger on an internet gossip board. So when will you be telling us who you are so that we can verify your identity and maybe then “trust you?

  • Stinkylouise

    This is even less believable than the Aniston nonsense.

  • Anna H.

    Lol you guys are hilarious, seriously. Whenever two single people are seen together they’re automatically dating? Come on! Don’t ever let gossip insult your intelligence as a reader and consumer.
    I know it’s fun for some to come on here and spill a little trash every now and then but geez!
    peace xx

  • IslaM.

    I don’t buy the whole dating thing either. It doesn’t surprise they had a lot to talk about, she’s off to India to film her show and Gerard has just recently spent a month there travelling up and down the country.
    This whole thing about saying people are always dating if they’re seen together is so freaking annoying!!!!

  • carech

    @Fatty Mom-Jeans Jess: Yes and I am sure you are gourgeous and thin and not petty or shallow at all. ASS

  • jaded

    This isn’t really plausible. Keep in mind this guy was photographed in a club with Shanna Moakler ..Travis Barker’s ex-wife? He doesn’t seem really concerned about the company he keeps or is photographed with unlike Leo Di Caprio You can rest assure that it will get a small blurb in US magazine and be forgotten.


    You got yourself a smart one Gerry, eh?!

  • yawn

    Shame on JJ for posting this piece of sh!t “news”.

  • jaded

    Nothing against Jessica Simpson but let’s face it: her looks and career and waning at this point and she’s basically a simple, probably sweethearted girl from texas. Cute but not really cut out for a sustainable career in acting or singing for the matter. Complicated guys like Gerard Butler and John Mayer (weird how both are linked to Aniston too) are no match for this woman.

  • http://Jessica Stephanie PAtton

    Jessica has way more brains than you think. Do you have as much money as her. She’s doing something right. Half of you idiots that right these mean things don’t have shit and are on GOV income.

  • YAAAAY!!!

    GO JESSICA!! Or should I say “GESSICA” – hahahah!! I think they’d make a GREAT couple!! Plus, I would really love seeing another mag cover likethe one Maniston got dealt when renee Z. snatched Bradley Cooper — ‘WHY GERRY CHOSE JESSICA OVER JEN!!’ – BAHAHAHAHAHA!! All of a sudden the Mayer fake hook up planted rumors in the rags make perfect sense. lmao Maniston is soooo obvious.

  • countess von zinzendorf

    Please don’t do it Gerard.

  • Hmm

    WHAT! how can you go from jennifer A to Jessica stupid!

    Ahh well they might work, you never know!


  • tallntan

    Yesterday I had lunch with 2 men – clients. I had dinner with another man and his sister and went to a charity event with another man. I’m not sleeping with any of them…though there have been offers. Sometimes adults go out together or just happen to run into each other when they’re out and just have some cocktails and TALK. OMG.
    I would think that after what Jessica went through with Mayer and Romo she would be very careful who she gets involved with next.

  • ManLESSton, I likely

    Mr. Giggles @ 10/22/2009 at 7:27 am God help us —- not another combo thread.

  • ManLESSton, I likely

    YAAAAY!!! @ 10/22/2009 at 10:04 am GO JESSICA!! Or should I say “GESSICA” – hahahah!! I think they’d make a GREAT couple!! Plus, I would really love seeing another mag cover likethe one Maniston got dealt when renee Z. snatched Bradley Cooper — ‘WHY GERRY CHOSE JESSICA OVER JEN!!’ – BAHAHAHAHAHA!! All of a sudden the Mayer fake hook up planted rumors in the rags make perfect sense. lmao Maniston is soooo obvious.
    Although I would love the public smackdown of Nippy, I don’t wish this on Gerry.
    Also, who believes Page Six these days anyway? *cough bullsh!t cough*

  • Lisa2

    That’s a strange pair? I would never have thought they would hook up. I wonder what they have in common to even talk about?

  • khristi

    If this is true, I say good for her. Gerard is amazingly good looking, and I think that all of the crap that she’s getting lately is not fair.

  • curious cat

    Ohhh, here we go again! What is there to say? More gossip. News out of nothing. It’s a source of never-ending wonder to me what makes so-called news in the entertainment biz. He sat next to a woman–another celebrity– and talked to her. Wow. They left together with her stylist? So what? So now they are doing a threesome? Maybe they just went to their cars at the same time. Who else left at the same time? Maybe the get together was over. Maybe they are planning to do a movie together a la Aniston and Bounty. Who knows? Who cares? They can both sing. Sorta. Let’s start that rumor. A Butler/Simpson musical.
    BTW, #11 “A law degree does not a genius make,” is perfectly sound grammar if a bit (purposely) archaic. Anyone who wants to criticize #11 on that can look up the word archaic in the dictionary. Man, I’m getting waspish. Any typos here are due to the sleepy time hour.
    For someone with naught to say I babbled again. But I was ponderin’ earlier, that I saw GB’s last two movies, TUT and Gamer, and both were instantly forgettable. Hardly remember a thing about ‘em an hour after I left the movie house. Will never rent much less buy the DVD. I did respond to PSILY but mostly I think because I was a raw new widow in shell shock and responded to Holly’s pain even though I didnt like her superficial character. (You can look up superficial in Webster’s if you don’t get it.) Haven’t seen LAC yet. Maybe today while I have my car fixed. Like fit it in.

    What I am noticing is that this gossip all starts over and flits by and means nothing. Great writers have said it much better. You know.

    Me, last night I went line dancin’ , learned to dance Brad Paisley’s “Mr. Policeman,” a funny funny song and faster than bat out of hell dance and felt much better about life.
    Nighty night, y’all.

  • Deidre

    Aww i am starting to feel bad for jessica! She is less self-loathing than Jennifer Aniston any day!!!!!!!!!!! Good luck Jess if you’re dating Gerard–he is sexy.

  • emma

    interesting !

  • emma

    interesting ~!

  • Oh Gee Wiz!

    You negative spewing hateful people must have such a miserable life that you need to come to a gossip site to feel good about yourself. Really, lighten up folks! God help any of us if we were put in the spot light 24/7. As the saying goes, “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw rocks”. What’s the big deal anyway? Two people chat at a dinner and suddenly they are a couple. I don’t think either of them is even thinking of anything beyond a friendly chat. Give us a break JJ!

  • Dawn9476

    Oh please. Not going to happen. Gerry’s career is skyrocketing now. No way he is going to bring it down by dating Jessica.

  • Dawn9476

    @Deidre: She is less self loathing that JA? LMAO!! That is why she drinks like a fish and has been see out in public totally smashed. Let’s not forget the meltdowns on stage while performing. Jessica Simpson is a total mess.

  • postwatcher

    Jessica? He was probably hooking up with Ken Paves…

  • athena

    oooo….PR teams hard at work.
    Gerry….for reals?!???

  • athena


    Now Perez Hilton is….but he calls BS…just like the rest of us.

  • oh nooooo

    Jessica wishes. Sorry. JJ, why would you even print and perpetuate this nonsense? It would be interesting, however, to know what the H they were doing together. Absolutely nothing in common. How would he even know her? Odd. Odd. Odd.

  • pafan

    An example of the gossip press at its worst. Who will they try to hook him up with next? Lindsay? What a bunch of cr#pp.

  • gemma

    I don’t know – GB said in an interview that he likes his women a bit dumb and prefers that they kinda worship him and take care of him… I think that fairly describes JS – a bit dumb, clings to her man (men end up call it smothering them) and is doe eyed enought to “worship” him while it lasts…

    (if this story is even true – which it’s not likely to be true)

  • http://. A FAN

    Just two people having a conversation is all.

    I’m developing a bad habit here – reading JJ while at work, gotta stop abusing my internet privileges!!!!!

  • jb

    Oh, please, NO! I will never look at Gerard Butler the same way again. Surely, he can’t be that dumb. Oh, that’s right – that’s Jessica’s role.

  • alphaba

    Jessica likely can’t even find Scotland on a map.

    This ‘date’ is not real.

  • HA!

    Do these people really go out to dinner and spend HOURS at a restaurant? Most people go for an hour, maybe two tops. All these stories about how celebrities go out and spend 6 hours talking and being in their own world are bullsh*t. If they were with other people, there is no way. Why even post this crap?

  • Joy Fehily = FIRE HER!!

    I think Jess is FAT and stupid.
    Her career is OVER.

    His is (hopefully) NOT but he can’t wish J Simpson on himself. She is a drunk nutcase and can’t keep a man.

    GB, you can do sooo much better than this fat slob JS who is always one ho-ho away from being a slob. Date a model over Jess, PLEASE.

  • Heavenly

    Yesterday Jen, today Jess, who’s going to be tomorrows blue plate special?

    I doubt there’s anything to it, just like there was nothing to the whole Jen thing. They left in the company of another person, AND it wasn’t an intimate dinner with just the two of them. Do you really think he’d take someone he’s seriously interested in, to a public place? Hell no. It would be somewhere they wouldn’t be seen or bothered.

    Knock off the gossip and give the man a break, will ya?

  • Rip Van Winkle

    Yaawwwwnn. Wake me up when this guy goes on a REAL date with someone interesting.

  • Fatso + Manwho*re

    Not even going to happen…
    Jess may be stupid as a bag of rocks but she is surrounded by people who are smarter than she is so…

    And Gerry is very smart. NOTE THIS FANS:
    Any woman Gerry is “seeing/TALKING TO” is NOT GOING TO BE SEEN BY THE PUBLIC EYE. Isn’t that just obvious?

  • schizophrenia

    The news that Gerard is going to star in a Shakespeare play and that he is dating a hillbilly on the same day? That’s schizophrenic at best.

  • sweetness

    I actually think those two make a good pair.

  • WTF

    Didn’t they start a rumor like that one back in early 2006 before the Bianca Christians appearance at the EJ After-viewing party?

    I remember reading from somebody that her cousin had seen in a Starbucks a dressed down Jessica Simpsons with a man who supposedly was Gerry and Jessica was even reported to have her hands in his back pockets.

    Just because people sit next to each other and are concentrating on what one is telling the other doesn’t mean they’re into each other or dating. Gerry is a very good listener and he uses that to his advantage making every woman he meets feel special, even some of his older ladies fans.

    When there’ll be pictures of them actually kissing like on TMZ they showed Katy Perry meeting her new beau Russell Brand, then it’s safe to say that Gerry just met Jessica at that party, they talked and there was nothing more.


    Not, of course.
    Gerry is inteligent. He don´t ned JessicaS.
    Oh God!!

  • curious cat

    @HA! #88 I meant to say that too. who spends HOURS at a restaurant.? How could they be talking for HOURS? The one who said India might have been the topic has an idea. Love #90 blue plate special, great quote, and #93 bingo! This thread should be done now.

  • Isabela

    noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo way :O
    oh, he can do soooo much better.

  • j

    Ewwwww thats gross..whats with him and dating hoochies….come on Gerry you can do better then that…

  • oh come on

    Folks Page Six is about as reliable as the local crackhead – he’ll say anything to pay for the next hit. Listen, I’ve lived in NYC for the past 15 yrs. I find it difficult, if not impossible to believe that they sat in a restaurant like Soho House and “chatted for hours” w/o one single cell phone photo showing up anywhere. Not one. And nobody got a photo of them “leaving together” either? And nobody has posted here or any other site saying they saw them together? Un uh. I don’t buy it. Sure they probably had dinner with a table full of other people, and maybe they spent some time talking. But the rest of this is crap. Yeah somebody wrote it in a newspaper, but that doesn’t make it true.

  • noa

    He was at the Whitney thing sitting with Shakira and none of this junk got printed in the gossip press. They would seem a more likely coupling because they are both very bright. They could communicate in more ways than one. Simpson on the other hand is, well, let’s just say slow.
