Gerard Butler: Celebrating His 40th In London!

Gerard Butler: Celebrating His 40th In London!

Gerard Butler leaves his hotel in London to appear on The Jonathan Ross Show on Thursday (November 12).

The Scottish actor, who turns 40 tomorrow, spoke with STV about his birthday week plans.

‘’On my birthday itself I am going to have a party in London, which is great because I don’t get to spend a lot of time there anymore,” he shared.

‘’The next day I am going up to Glasgow, where I am having a shared birthday party with my 11-year old niece,” Gerard shared.

‘’I might even have something in L.A. as well, but I am not going to have any big parties, just little fun ones.’’

Happy early birthday, Gerry!!

    Maybe there weren’t many people who entered.

    Or maybe there were and she ate them

    …with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

    This is all very strange. If that Fram really won, I think Gerry should just laugh it off. Good Gawd. He has fans all over the world. He can’t go into hiding. THIS IS what he wanted afterall. And worked his little butt off for a decade. Well, now he’s got it in spades. Some kind of immortality? I got that. Afraid of being forgotten in the big picture? Deal with it kiddo. No boring lawyer life. But maybe in the long run you would have been happier as a mediocre lawyer in mid-Scotland?

    @LoneWolf:
    “….. but it just threw me how just from that bit in the interview and what all has been said in regards to it, it now looks like they are back together”
    ———————————————————————————————–
    I think you may have misunderstood my original comment. My apologies as I should have been more clear. When GB mentioned “hanging out” with Bianca, he didn’t mean they were hanging out now. He was referring to the past. This is the quote: “I had a girlfriend once and we’d been hanging out for a long time and the second we went to an event together the hate that came through the internet …”
    GB meant “hanging out” in the past tense, not the present. Again, I’m really sorry I wasn’t more clear because I do not want to unwittingly start another rumor. GB did not say he’s seing Bianca now.

    @trying to figure it out:

    I’ve known her since early 90s – the good old Take That days and like with alot of fandoms you make friends for life. Maybe I’m a weirdo too because we went all over UK/Europe to see the band and thought nothing of it just girls loving a band and having a great time together –

    And like #Mia said @143 the boyfriends etc were all big footie fanatics going to football games so we never saw it as anything different and I still see it that way – different hobbies. If I was not married/kids and had no ties I think I’d still be doing what we did back then. She gets the best of both worlds seeing her friends and she knows that she is not always guranteed a glimpse of Gerard but so far she’s been lucky at the PAs/TV shows.

    What I can’t get my head around and why I felt I had to speak up is I could understand if Gerard was some ordinary bloke she had got a fixation on and followed him everywhere but he is an actor and like pop stars/groups they have fans who show at Personal Appearances like film premieres and tv shows etc – if she took it to the extreme and “stalked” him in his private time then yes I’d be joining you all in the queue of bashing her. The only time she has ever been near a hotel Gerard was in was at TIFF when she went to meet up with some Michael Fassbender fans and that is when she met him for first time – as far as I can tell nobody knew Gerard was staying there as it was at other end of town from where he stayed when there before. She has been going to the Golden Globes yearly since 2000 – not just the years Gerard has been there. She is in a fortunate position with no ties and very little financial output that she can afford to do all this – hell if he was in UK more often I am sure she would not bother her backside going over to US – so it seems to me because others are not in the same position jealousy is playing a big part in the constant bashing.

    Some of you say she gives other GB fans a bad name – I find that laughable because she is doing nothing different to any of the East /WestCoast fans who do more than she does she only has to travel further and she draws the line at set visits unlike alot of other fans.

    As for the Glasgow tix she won them from F Gary Gray who invited her to LA so I think if she was Public Enemy #1 with Gerard and his people she would not be winning this contest – open your eyes people as it appears it is you lot and not Gerard that has an issue with her.

    @XX: Yikes! I have just read your stuff – you have not done anything to improve the situation with this sad, pathetic woman. You have merely confirmed, by your defence of her, what a strange, empty and deluded person she is. To find that her Gerard Butler obsession is the latest in the line of a long line of similar fantasties is even more pathetic. This is a public board – and your in depth personal revelations, together with the sad things she posts about herself on the fanboards and her OCD compulsive tiwttering disorder seem to add up to the obvious description of someone who is a borderline (or worse) stalker. You can dress it up as being a ‘fan’ and it being fun or a hobby like following football, but this is an obessive compusive mental illness in any other book. You have not helped your ‘friend’.

    XX Says:

    @for XX and framalamdingbat:

    Well it’s plain to see there are plenty Gerard Butler fans with “obsessive compulsive mental illness” as you put it so she’s amongst good company!!! Believe me there are worse than her you only need to do a twitter search on Gerard Butler.

    I think it is obvious for all to see that just because we dont all do the same things or have the same likes it is so easy to bash those who do not fall inline with what we perceive to be “normal”.

    Maybe all you bashers out there need to look at your own lives and if they are so fulfilled why do you feel the need to come here and bring others down. To an outsider looking in it is all you lot that are the shallow empty people here not the likes of her and all the others you try to mock.

    You say I have done her no favours with my little revelations well you are entitled to your opinion like I am entitled to defend a friend who is unfairly bashed alot of the time.

    Here is a report of Gerry’s 40th birthday bash at Chinawhite Club in the Soho section of London last night. A colleague of mine was one of the invited guests. There were about 30 guests there, men and women, all friends of Gerry’s. He did not have a date, but circulated and smoozed and danced with everyone. Gerry drank either sparkling water or Coca-Cola the entire evening. There was food served. There was live music as well as canned music. Gerry came to the party with one of his friends (male) and left the party alone as well, around 3 a.m. this morning. Everyone, including my colleague, had a good time, and according to her, it was one of the nicest parties she has ever been to.

    Oh Gee Wiz! Says:

    People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw rocks. I agree with XX. Anyone one of us here could fit the mold of OCD. Aren’t a lot of you here every day scanning for more people to bash, including GB. Who owns the problem? I’d say half the people here has a problem in one form or another. Leave the girl alone. Aren’t there worse things going on in the world than one girl out of many following a celebrities career.

    He is an ordinary bloke who, by profession, is an actor. If she wouldn’t obsess over him if he was a plumber, why do it because he is an actor? And why can’t you get your head around the fact you had to speak up and defend her, you obviosly do have issues with

    @XX

    Sorry, computer went on the fritz. Try again:

    What I can’t get my head around and why I felt I had to speak up is I could understand if Gerard was some ordinary bloke she had got a fixation on…..

    He is an ordinary bloke who, by profession, is an actor like every other actor out there. I don’t know why people obsess over them so much, they are human and being an actor doesn’t make them any different. I can never figure out why a person like Gerry is a nobody one minute and a “star” the next being fawned over. Do they change overnight? I doubt it. If she wouldn’t obsess over him if he was a plumber, why do it because he is an actor? And why can’t you get your head around the fact you had to speak up and defend her, you obviously do have issues with it. Like #155 said – you are revealing too much about your friend, her father’s medical condition, her life. Why? It’s really irrelevant to the situation. Have you thought about any of her “friends” seeing this stuff and wondering – OMG? Not all of us on this board are crazed fans. I myself like Gerry, I’ve never met him and never will. I don’t Tweet , don’t have a Facebook account I’m not into this running all over h*ll’s half acre to see him. I have a right as much as anyone else to voice my opinion, and just because it’s a negative one aimed at one particular person doesn’t mean I am a shallow person with a sad life. Your friend is spending a lot of time and money so she can see Gerry, who is someone she will never have. What do you think your friend would do if he announced he is getting married? Or he’s gay? And I’m not saying he is. Her fantasy world is going to come crashing down around her. How will she deal with it. Think about it and what has happened to “stars” in the past – John Lennon ring any bells?

    @114 Ohh Maa Gawd .

    Sorry for my irritable post earlier. No I haven’t flip flopped. I’ve been a GB critic/ sometime admirer right along, neither rabid fan nor rabid hater. Sometimes puzzled and exasperated by some of his behavior and remarks. Other times appreciative of his acting, his ambition and the hard work he’s put in to achieve success, not to mention his good looks. I thought the Oslo interviews with the blonde reporter were very good. He sounded more like the down to earth person he seemed in his pre-big Hollywood star days, although I didn’t really know much about him before “300″ . I did see Timeline, Phantom, Attila, Reign of Fire, Beowulf & Grendel and some interviews he did.
    It helped that the reporter in Norway didn’t gush or ask rude and silly questions about his sex life and such. She was very professional, I thought. This isn’t the first time lately that he has talked about realizing that he’s made unwise comments to the press and joking about being sent to “media training.”

    I HAVE felt for awhile that he was becoming too Hollywood and too Americanized, all over the map being “seen” at events, and that success had gone to his head a bit. Gawd! Even spouting Valley Speak on occasion! His Scottishness, his Celtic outlook on life, his humor and his accent, are part of his appeal –I think most agree on that–and I’d like to see him not lose that and become just another Hwood actor. Maybe he’s settling down a bit.

    I honestly don’t know I said what I did in that last post, must have been in a bit*chy mood or just exceedingly tired and annoyed by some dumb remark GB said in some interview. I don’t even remember. It does seem harsh and I’d remove it if I knew how. I’m not a fangurl OR a hater. Truth is, I don’t spend hours a day thinking about GB or searching for info on him. In fact, when he did a premiere and press interviews in a town about 20 miles from where I live some time back, I didn’t even consider interrupting my day to drive there and hang around trying to get a glimpse of him. I certainly wouldn’t rack up credit card bills flying all over the country or the world to see any star or hang around sets or red carpets. I usually don’t even visit star websites. GB is uncommonly entertaining, somehow, good looking, personable, sometimes funny and sometimes controversial and somehow I got caught up in these JJ threads. They have taken on a life of their own, are fun and funny and sort of addictive because of some of the regular posters, whom I feel I sort of know even though I don’t.
    That’s pretty much my position for a long time, Ohh Maa Gawd. It hasn’t changed overall.

    Thanks, Mr. Giggles and others, for supplying links. I enjoy seeing them and would probably never look for them or find them myself.
    Have a good weekend, all. I know I’ve gone on too long again and promise to shut up now for awhile. :)

    Is the blonde.... Says:

    Isn’t the blonde woman in the picture, the same woman he was photographed with on the set of The Bounty? He had his arm around her. One of the production crew, later photgraphed at a club dancing together?

    Curious, glad to see you back. I was afraid you had gone for good. You would be missed. Same goes for cubedweller, stinky, trying to figure it out, amen (where have you been?) and lavender.
    .
    Glad to see XX has taken a break. Can’t believe Framo got almost two pages. But she is crazy entertaining.
    .
    OT Curious, we just packed up our nursery and donated everything to a shelter. I have never done such a hard thing in my life. It has sat undisturbed for more than two years. Closing this particular chapter in our life has been really hard for us. How did you get through it in your life? We have both been crying for most of yesterday and today. How do we pull ourselves up by our bootstraps? We both keep telling each other the grief will pass, but when I look in his eyes I can tell he doesn’t believe it anymore than I do. I thought I had seen it all working in hospice in the past, but boy is it different when you are walking in those shoes. Naive of me…MUCH! Any advice?
    .
    Your opinion is important to me. Everyone in our life has opinions and loads of advice, but none of been through a major loss like this. It also has made me review what an a$$ I may have been too in thinking I knew it all.
    .
    Your insight will be meaningful to me.

    @manlesston
    I just hit a wrong key and wasn’t sure whether or where my message would go so just did a test send.
    Your warm messages are always appreciated. I’m not likely to go for good. To me these threads are recreation. Until your last post. I skim through the latest ones every few days as an amusing break and sometimes there are 200 more messages on a thred than the last time I looked. I like to receive and give real information, often I feel I have nothing to contribute to the discussion at hand so I don’t post. When I do, as people have observed, sometimes not kindly, I tend to be too wordy and go off on a tangent about something someone said 100 posts back. Look at how many posts on this thread before I realized someone had addressed me at #114. and I posted again at #169 only to answer that. I haven’t been “driven off” YET, but you can’t be thin-skinned around these parts. :)
    You know what is weird? We cynics are evolving into a support group much as the fangurls did? Except differently. GB is not the main issue with some of us any more.
    You dont need someone to make fun of you.
    I’m not ignoring your question, just thinking. I do remember that you lost a child. I don’t think you posted many details. I didn’t know your age then or realize you lost an infant. I don’t like to pry into people’s personal business on threads. I wonder boy or girl, how old, was it your first, how did it happen. Etc. You have asked me for some personal input. You may not want to share this experience with everyone on the site or expose yourself to the crazies out here.

    This is really the only celebrity-oriented site I visit. Well, I did visit the website of Brooks & Dunn when they announced their pending breakup, just to confirm that awful news, but other than that…Other sites I visit regularly have to do with my music/dance interests, news stories, historical research, etc.

    The reason I’m saying this is that some websites have a really nice feature that allows you to contact other posters personally through the website, off the thread without etiher of you revealing your identity if you don’t choose. You can have private chats other posters don’t have to see if you have something you want to talk about with an individual poster that others might not be interested in. Or appreciate. Or bash. I’ve had some very interesting conversations with people from different countries.
    Right now I’m trying to think of a site that you could go to and leave a message for me anonymously and have it come into my inbox.

    This does have its bad side too. I stood up for someone on a racist issue and was delighted to find a pesonal message in my inbox only to find it was a crude racist attack on me. I felt the Ku Klux Klan still rides. But at least them bastar*ds don’t know who I am or where I live. They won’t be on my lawn burning a cross. It’s still shocking that in 2009 people have these attitudes.

    I don’t know the answer to your question, MANLESSTON, I had a different situation from yours. In the movie “Steel Magnolias,” Sally Field screams at her costar who ofers religious advice and Field screams that chilldren aren’t supposed to die before their parents do.

    i didn’t have that situation and I think I told you I can’t imagine that kind of pain. I commend you on letting go of the nursey.r I hope for greater joy for you.
    I’m going to get back to you. Somehow.
