Gerard Butler: Shirtless in Barbados!

Gerard Butler: Shirtless in Barbados!

Gerard Butler and a female friend soak in the sun in Barbados on Sunday (January 3).

It’s the first day of the 40-year-old Bounty Hunter‘s vacation on the west coast of the Caribbean island.

Gerry enjoyed a bit of time in Aspen, Colorado but spent New Year’s Eve at New York City hotspot Avenue. He reportedly “showed up [around] 1:30AM and hung with a bodacious brunette.”

10+ pictures inside of shirtless Gerard Butler in Barbados…

Heh heh….

He looks so fat and ugly!!! Please keep your shirt on, Gerry. You are no longer hot.

The other day I was watching a straight to DVD movie called “Timeline” (from a really good Michael Cricton book) and there was Gerry Butler!!! I had no idea he was in the movie but he was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! The movie must have been made before “300″ because he didn’t get top billing and the other people were mostly unknown (to me). Anyway, I’m just surprised at how awful Gerry looks now with his clothes off. I mean, if he wants to be a real star, shouldn’t he at least try to keep in shape?

agh **** i need to go down the west coast!

Oh Dear
I finally recover from my nye hangover and this is what i find?
oh G.. I like you too much but darling… oh darling… lol I can’t stop giggling.. seriously. Bless him.

I love how the paps managed to pinpoint his exact location on the island.LOL!
He needs to cover up tho. Where’s the white jacket?

yuck, yuck! what a chunky butt.

No comment.

Hey, nodody’s perfect. I find those pics rather cute, actually.
Normal, ya know?

I sure as shet wouldn’t mind being on a warm stretch of beach right about now.

please tell me he gained weight to play sam childers. please.

Barbados airport very very small, anyone could have tipped the paps off plus they got other celebs to stalk – Rihanna is home for the holidays, Jude Law and Sienna Miller were frolicking about at least last week.

Love that island, west coast is the best.

Why, to make YOU happy? Leave him alone. He’s on vacation. He doesn’t have to do anything HE doesn’t want to. He’s not filming so who gives a rats ass if he works out. Personally, I think he looks damn smokin’ HOT for 40!!

WOW CELEBS SEEEM 2 LUV RELAXIN N MY HOMELAND OF BARBADOS.

@Stinkylouise

Totally agree with you.

Where’s Fritz, Mr. Giggles, Oy and ManLESSton when you need them?

He’ll be filming Corolianus first – that’s called Xmas.

I can’t wait for Oy to comment on this.

Hey Bajan, you got one fine homeland!

Gerry be heading to the Gap for some nightlife?

Someone give that boy a shirt!!!!!!!

Yank The Chain @ 01/03/2010 at 3:12 pm

He looks fine and when you’re swimming,,what you wear a shirt? Cut him some slack already..I’d love to see some of you in a swimming suit..Looks like he’s relaxing..nothing wrong with that…

WHYYYYYYYYY !!

What is she thinking of being with him? Can she really be that broke???????

ck_always @ 01/03/2010 at 3:16 pm

Lol, I love reading comments from people that have no idea how a human physique works. Fat? You must be blinded by his pale skin. You can still see the muscle definition throughout the entire body. It’s a different version of Mark Wahlberg. He doesn’t work out as much as before, but once your body achieves a foundation of definition like that it will always be there. I think some of you missed the word “vacation” in this post. You know ..where you get to be lazy and enjoy your time off doing nothing? It doesn’t take long at all for a body to get back to it’s top shape, especially when it’s not far off(Gerry for example). You can gain and lose weight rapidly or tone specific muscles by knowing your body and the correct format. Your everyday human being can do this, it’s even quicker for an A-list celebrity by being able to pay for a dietitian and personal trainer working with top of the line equipment. It’s funny when ignorant people think he “let himself go” when in fact he’s just being normal for a short period of time. Your body doesn’t look ripped just by simply jogging and pumping iron four times a day. It’s the right diet, calorie in-take, and workout routine.

Try thinking before you make a stupid post.

Stinkylouise @ 01/03/2010 at 3:16 pm

LOL! I’m not cutting him ANY slack! He obviously tipped off the paps.So he has to deal with the comments.
I can’t wait for Lainey”s snarky take on this.

skylar blue @ 01/03/2010 at 3:21 pm

Excuse me.
I threw up in my mouth a little.
He is gross.

wow there, take a chill pill some of you. When a guy is known for being a hunk, have six pack( that’s the image he and his team sell) – then suddenly shows up in a beach with a bit of a belly going on, ppl will talk. It’s all in good fun, relax. I know he’s on vacation, it’s the holiday season, he’ll be back in shape in no time if he wants to, blah blah. lol
Stinky, lainey is the best isn’t she? I always crack up when I go to her site. I’m sure she’ll have some interesting stuff to say lol

I n F a m o u s l y C o o l @ 01/03/2010 at 3:27 pm

ahahahaha.. fcuking tubby. ahahahahaha..
.
“this is spaghetti!”
.
300′s sequel (or prequel) will be called – 300 donuts.

He can just uses Lainey’s snark as workout inspiration when he gets geared up.

She even turned on James Franco one of her lfreebie 5. She met him at SNL afterparty, and she complained about his hips being too pear shaped. Wonder what James thought of her since she admitted to being plastered.

I will not judge this man, food is awesome! I looks like an average guy which is cool.

The only thing is that doing the yo yo thing, like Janet Jackson does, is not healthy in the long run.

I think Gerry is finally getting a “would you hit it?” caption from Michael K.
just saying…

gotta be kidding @ 01/03/2010 at 3:41 pm

I’ve def. seen this woman before w/him in a limo at some appearance or premier. The pic i think is accessible on this board. as for how he looks, he certainly is not as well defined as he has been (tummy flatter in LAC), but not so terrible, either – i’ll swim w/him.

@Trying to figure it out:

I’m right here, darlin’. I’m bracing myself for this thread to turn into Invasion of the body snatchers. Hoo lawdy.

Greetings to the regulars! *kiss*

There is link to a picture of Simon Cowell shirtless in Barbados up above, would that be better?

The chica looks nice–actually has some meat on her bones, which I know is scandalous if hanging out with a Hollywood actor and the photogs can get a picture. At least her meat is in the right places, unlike Mr. Butler’s there ;-). But he is on vacay and it is the holidays, so he is certainly welcome to enjoy himself.

Stinkylouise @ 01/03/2010 at 4:07 pm

Well….The pics are on dlisted and ontd. You want to see some vicious comments check these out.(Hopefully I’ll be able to provide the links):

awww he’s cute :) I think the only thing that surprised me is how white his skin is. His face is always tanned but obviously that is because it is exposed in the sun

CanadaGirl @ 01/03/2010 at 4:10 pm

Poor guy. He’s taking a grilling already. Perhaps the weight gain is for a role? It was just the holidays, so perhaps he indulged a little. I’ll cut him some slack. I haven’t been to the gym in ages, so I shouldn’t judge.

JewelryMaker @ 01/03/2010 at 4:10 pm

Ahhh, I don’t care if he has a tummy, it’s the man, not the physique that gets me. Odd looking trunks though.

time to take pictures and he is already L. A.. is not paparazzi photos or Aspen or barbados. It’s a little chubby but still cute

Someone has had a lot of Christmas pudding over the hoidays!

@anna:

hi,
its quite possible he is getting ready for the coriolauus movie, as its a role and a cold one, set in the baltics i think, going to be a cold movie to do, so any fat he can get on his middle is imiportant

sam childers movie wont be happening until may
we still love him
and here he is being normal
heather

Hey, how many of us right now have a little ripple going on around ou bellies. Ye without a love handle forever hold your peace.
Personally he has this next movie to do in the Baltics? cold county folks, and anything he can do to get ready, good for him.
And he is on vacation, leave him alone.
I just want to know why he goes for women with small tits.
I want him, me, and my 44ds.
I ask you?
Whats a normal girl gotta do to get a GB lookalike? or better yet, him?
All kidding aside, he is having fun, prob the first good kick back vacation he will have for a long time to come.
Be a fan, not a critic

I knew Gerard Butler would eventually get fat, but I didn’t think he’d become a member of Team Chunk so soon. What a shame. Hope he doesn’t get as fat as Brando. At any rate he was fabulous in 300.
.
Butler fought the chunk and lost. Big time. And the douchewear sure isn’t helping his cause.
.
What the fu-k happened to Butler? He used to be hot. Now he’s sporting moobs and working with Spagheniston? There’s something wrong there.

I’d still hit it. I mean I wouldn’t knock someone down to get to it, but if it was there I’d hit it.

RIP LEONIDAS :(
.
I think it’s the pink, too tight swimsuit couples with the trucker hat that is ruining him for me. It’s not his body overall, it’s everything else.
.
Hahaha, my computer is loading only like the top 1/3 of each picture, so that most of them stop after his shoulders. It’s like it’s saving me from myself.
.
go back to the way you looked in 300.

i’d still hit it, though. but i’d hit anything at this point, so…
.
at least his legs are toned?
idk idk.
maybe he really is straight.

Mr. Giggles @ 01/03/2010 at 4:39 pm

Just now checking in…….aaaagh !!!!!

-
Our last thread was spot on……..he IS the Pillsbury Dough Boy !!!!!

Hotter with his clothes on.

Look Closer @ 01/03/2010 at 4:45 pm

That chick is not with him.So some of you can stop implying that she is and try to google the **** out of her.
She is not with him..I repeat..She is not with him.
How I know this?
Watch closer, and keep your eyes on TMZ.She is just walking by.

I think he is there to talk scripts..not just vacation.
The short is fugly.And he should swim harder to get some calories of.

Some comments are too funny. I don’t think he’s in that bad of a shape but oh boy, he really can’t dress. It just makes it worse.

gotta be kidding @ 01/03/2010 at 4:47 pm

I wonder, does HE thinks he looks good, does he not care, what??

I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eating crackers…(or anything else for that matter.)

I don’t know why people are so surprised. He has repeatedly said that he doesn’t workout unless he is shooting. He even joked on Conan that whenever he slept with a woman he had to explain to them that he didn’t have the 300 body anymore. He’s not fit, and has a bad belly but I wouldn’t classify him as fat at all. Nowhere near.

Sorry Gerry, I’m gonna go look at McGregor and McAvoy and get my scottish fix for today.

What the heck happened!!!!
.
He was all abs in 300! He look hot and now he’s fat and flabby!!
.
I don’t understand actors like and Leo DiCaprio. They have money to hire nutritionists and personal trainers yet they let themselves get fat and gross. Ewwwwwww.

@sugar: people can’t help but feel disappointed looking at something like this lol Of course he’s not fat! Just not in his most attractive. I’m sure all of the barbados sun will do him good and he’ll rock some nice suits in the coming weeks.

@Huh?:

*nodding vehemently* Uh HUH!

Looks like the same compound Jude stayed in last week.

It is obvious when me are fit for movie roles and when they are not. This is Gerry’s natural state. The way is body naturally is..

Some men are just naturally fit. Gerry is no one of them He has to work at it. I mean he has NO definition whatsoever right now. I’m sure he will hit the gym soon. He has a movie to promote in a coupe of months..

Boy some guys get such a hassle for anything they do.. Gerry is lucky he can walk around like this and it not make the cover of a magazine..

cubedweller @ 01/03/2010 at 5:08 pm

At least he hasn’t spraytanned himself into a giant oompa loompa.
.
It’s 10 meager degrees where I am, and these pics have inspired me to go for a run. Leaving right now, looking like Ralphie’s “Can’t put my arms down” brother.
.
I’m not going to bash on him for the holiday poundage – it happens to all of us. But —- WTF is with those SHORTS??? For the love of gawd – the color, the fit, the print. He is headed straight to the Lainey “Bad Pants” hall of fame. And galpal, IF that is what you are, grab that hat while he’s asleep and burn the dreaded thing.

Saint.Manuel @ 01/03/2010 at 5:08 pm

he´s awesome, a really cool guy without having to show he´s a famous actor.
about the physique.
that is the way he normally looks, he said that he likes fast food and all his milk shakes but he also proved that he can transform into one big muscle guy if he has to.
it´s all about feeling good and being comfortable inside you body. he´s an actor and changes his appearance if nessesary but without losing his personality.

The paleness makes him appear doughy and flabby methinks. That small poch under the bellybutton cracks me up. He is a big guy as real and meaty as it gets. He admitted many times he is not the kind of guy obsessed with going to the gyms. This is between shooting movies so this is as average normal as he looks. Relax ppl.

At long last they’ve located the lost Baldwin! I hope his New Year’s Resolution was to lay off the pasta and cake.

It’s not surprising that he’s in Barbabados. Wherever celebrity hangouts are being covered by the tabloids, it’s Gerry’s batsignal.

I hope Rihanna is hiding.

One more thing, pink trunks Gerry? Really? Pink? Looks like my niece’s Hello Kitty pillowcase was transformed into swimwear. You can afford a good stylist. It’s time to get one. Your wardrobe is a crime against humanity.

.@ck_always: That’s not muscle definition. It’s the outline of lasagna he downed the night before.

gotta be kidding @ 01/03/2010 at 5:35 pm

@oy:

LOL – i just saw “it’s complicated” w/alec baldwin! it reminded me the same exact thing! too funny oy!

So we are a group of meat watchers, lets face it, everyone here has had their say about what he looks like an that we expect him to be a hunk all the time.
NOT, folks human guy, and who cares what he looks like, he is a nice, good actor, on holiday, kicking back
leave the Scot alone

@Heather Donovan: you can leave too you know… I’m sure everyone will leave him alone now that you’ve spoken.
Gerry’s been going to all hotspots

gotta be kidding @ 01/03/2010 at 5:42 pm

He’s still do-able to me, but when I first got into him, after TUT, and I knew he was the guy from 300, my 1st impression of him was as a bodybuilder type – well screw 1st impressions, because altho he can pump up for a role when he has to, it’s obviously not his lifestyle. not that i care, like i say, he’s still do-able, but i thought he was a very different type.

@Heather Donovan: you can leave too you know… I’m sure everyone will leave him alone now that you’ve spoken.
Gerry’s been going to all hotspots I can think of. He KNOWS he’ll be photgraphed and he chose to wear those bloody shorts and sport that belly. Don’t worry tho, I’m sure he’s too busy having fun in barbados to come here and read what ppl are saying.

Yes, he’s chunky. It’s not a crime… but apparently, when Russell Crowe, 5 years older puts on a bit of chunk, he’s committed the world’s worst crime.

Naturally beefy men tend to go to fat when they don’t work out a lot … it’s nature.

I don’t think that gal is “with” him.

LoL love this guy, he doesnt give a **** what people think.

Wow! Someone needs to get their man boobs and belly a full-time trainer!!!

gerard TANRI SANA UZUN ÖMUR VERSİN.gozlerin cok anlamlı bakısların cok guzel.cok uzaktasın ama kalplerde en yakın..TURKIYE-İSTANBUL DAN SEVGİLER..NEHİR

Also if you look closely his left foot is injured/bandaged….
Can’t exercise with that going on.

It’s obvious the woman isn’t with him.

Heather, were you the one who said your chest was 44d or something like that? Of course you would support his doughy physique. You’re probably hoping to borrow one of his bras.

Gotta be kidding, I think Alec Baldwin is laughing at having more than ten years on Gerry and looking just like him.

@nxs: Gerry’s Pity Party Committee has arrived. Bench presses and crunches can’t be done when you have a bandage on your foot? He probably has a blister from his ski boots last week. What’s on his torso is an accumulation of more than week. He’s the Paisley Dough Boy. No excuses.

where is the muscular dude of 300 and Reign of Fire? hide with the thin Leo Dicaprio!

cubedweller @ 01/03/2010 at 6:10 pm

@oy: Alec was the hotness once, too. Now he looks like his arms shrank in the wash.

notice how the jenfreaks speak bad about him when he looked the same bloated while filming that trashtastic “movie” with the lonely emblem??? the were ALL over him when there was speculation that they were dating!! those hags need to get a new script cause when men want NOTHING to do with their tranny “ms” aniston, then he /they are gross.

ghvbhnthn @ 01/03/2010 at 6:26 pm

i came on these pix. he’s so hot.

Stinkylouise @ 01/03/2010 at 6:26 pm

So are these up at the anointed shrines,yet? Or are they ignoring the photos?
Mr. Giggles, are you here? I know you’re brave enough to enter the holy temples. LOL!

There everyone goes…..it’s “take a shot at Gerry” day again ! I don’t know why anyone should care what he looks like or what he does….he’s on vacation!!!! He’s comfortable with his body and doesn’t give a good s**t what anyone thinks! He’ll lose the weight when he has to for his next role. This is what I love about him….not letting other people dictate how he should live. BTW, which of us hasn’t gained a little weight over the holidays?

K from Starbux LF @ 01/03/2010 at 6:27 pm

LMAO! He looks awful! Thank you (Sam) for sending me here!
I always ALWAYS see this guy in my Starbucks (Im a barista!) – how is he FAMOUS???
He sometimes has a girl with him, but it’s not that one. She IS black though or something in that range. Maybe it is Rhinana. lol
Why in gods name did he take that shirt off?? hahahah
He never looks hot in the coffee shop and lives in sunglasses but I have never seen him with his shirt off! THANK GOODNESS! lol

Too bad his mouth didn’t shrink too, cube.

Once upon a time they could get women to flock to Gerry’s movies by telling them he would take his shirt off. Now they’ll have to promise to keep it on.

It could be a brilliant scheme to kill his beefcake image and be taken seriously as an actor *giggle*. Milkshakes are cheaper than acting lessons.

LAC SUCKED MOOSE BALLS @ 01/03/2010 at 6:31 pm

Oh god, Gerry. NO.
*dry heaves*

Actually if you look at his whole body not just his upper torso, esp. his belly, Gerry doesn’t look too bad at all. He is proportionally good due to his height. Got to admit he is a hunky hunk. Yummy yum type of a dude.

…who is this little boy, hmmmm….???

cubedweller @ 01/03/2010 at 6:33 pm

@Stinkylouise: Just looked at GALS – nothing yet. IMdB is cutting and pasting our comments – bwahaha.

“He sometimes has a girl with him, but it’s not that one. She IS black though or something in that range.”

Oh dear. Don’t say that. Repeat after me. Gerry “loves ALL KINDS of women.” If you tell the non-black women he doesn’t like them, they will be very angry that he doesn’t think they’re attractive. Do not anger the herd.

He let himself GO and by ‘GO’ I mean “GO TO SH*T”
Ew and he’s pale with little black hairs covering his chest and lasagna belly!

I don’t like the 300 body at all. It is freakish and unrealistic. I like the body Gerry has now.

Poor Gerry. People are usually posting for him to take his shirt off. He finally does and everyone says to put it back on. LOL.

He definitely is not looking his best, but he is hardly fat. He is, however, a little to pale too pull off the pink shorts, which BTW do not fit well. Seems like most of his chubbiness could be solved by wearing appropriately fitting clothes. He always seem to wear too tight stuff that makes him look heavier than he probably is.

Still a cutie though. And he seems like a lot of fun.

Stinkylouise @ 01/03/2010 at 6:43 pm

@cubedweller- I bow down to your courage.LOL!

And as for this being a vacation? THIS is a photo-op/Bounty pr.

K from Starbux LF @ 01/03/2010 at 6:43 pm

LOL you guys are funny as hell!! Are you sure that you are fans?
A friend of mine sent me here because I see the guy all the time in my plaza – come on down to my Starbux and u’ll be sure to run into him and sometimes his friends.
I have heard about this guy, how he is even a movie star is funny as hell I am sure that he DOES have legions of women. What would he have against non-black women? have seen him four or five times andcouple time he just had random girl with him. But they werent like touching feely or anything. Maybe his assistant or manager I can never tel bc its LA after all.She could probaby beat him up anyway from the looks of her. lol What crappy movie are you talking about and is this website new? Thanks for making me laugh on a sunday! I agree with all of yo

He needs a bra and spanx! How can women find him attractive? There is nothing manly about him. I like manly men and he is too girly. From his man boobs to his pasty doughy gut and then those pink shorts. GROSS!!! I bet he is a disgusting pig to live with.

Hello Goodbye @ 01/03/2010 at 6:47 pm

@K from Starbux LF:
Um, probably an assistant. Here’s a clue for you: you are new here – do yourself a big favor and DO NOT bring up women at all as far as Gerry is concerned, mkay?
You are inciting the wrath of the Framodevil. Run and hide now Barista before its too late……
Is starbucks going to bring back those little donuts with sprinkles? So cute and yummy!

kibbles&bits @ 01/03/2010 at 6:48 pm

He eats too much. Dough boy.
FARTAAAAAAA

( o ) ( o )
Look familiar Gerry?

AtomicShizuka @ 01/03/2010 at 7:06 pm

Gerry’s a nice guy, and he’s attractive. But he got fat. I mean compared to common middle aged guys he’s a gorgeous guy, but I’m totally getting turned off by his chubby physic. x_x

Man, I can’t tell you how many time I masturbated to him in 200 and Dracula 2000. Gerard! Please get hot again!

Keyla1987 @ 01/03/2010 at 7:13 pm

Yes, because he is so morbidly obese and looks like he has to struggle to walk five paces without gasping for breath. Seriously, you all need to get over yourselves. He is still really sexy, and personally, I like a man with a belly. There, I said it.

I’m guessing most of the people making the rude comments are perfect and in shape. Yea…that’s that I thought!!

Why, exactly, do people think he’s hot?

@kibbles&bits: If they’re going to do a live action Spongebob Squarepants film, he has to be on top of the list of potential stars.

Last year in South Beach he did not take his shirt off because the response would be what it is now. Men put onweight quiclkly,but lose it twice as fast as women. I bet for his promo tour he will be in shape. I hope he enjoys his holiday without dietery limitations. Life is too short!

He will look as hot and slim as hale if he puts on a suit without losing any pounds or going to the gym to firm up. All he needs if at all is to firm up the mid section of his body. For those who still wonder why women find him hot, here is the secret: his personality makes up at least 50% of his hotness. Try that with any other actors.

May God Bless you all! @ 01/03/2010 at 7:58 pm

Mat 12:34-36
New International Version
You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.

Aha! And now we have a bible thumper in da house! Praise be!

lol, Jesus.

fat and ugly, I always do not like him at all…fat face..

@May God Bless you all!: You’re right. I remember when Gerry made a not so nice crack about women who had babies and their post-baby bodies. I’ll bet the fansites didn’t keep that clip because it struck too close to home. Does that make him an evil man or is he exempt because he’s a movie star?

ManLESSton, I likely @ 01/03/2010 at 8:29 pm

I hate that damn hat!
.
It looks like our Great Scot is emulating Santa from the Night Before Christmas. I bet when he laughs “his belly shook like a bowl full of jelly.” Because he has a flat a$$ it certainly emphasizes his belly nicely. I can truly thank Gerry for giving me an incentive to get running again and passing on deserts.
.
I thought all the celebrities heading south were in St. Bart’s exclusively. I guess I was wrong.
.
As for worrying that Framokenstein can catch up to him in Barbados, he seems to be keeping on the move every few days to avoid her being able to track him down. Now that’s our smart boy.
.
*waving to my favorite JJers*

Barbados is a relatively large island….Framo will never find him…

@mslewis:
Timeline actually had a theatrical release in 2003 when it was made. You are correct though it did come out before 300 which came out 3 years later in 2006.

Now that is stupid, he is not morbidly obsese, get a BMI chart out.

ManLESSton, I likely @ 01/03/2010 at 8:54 pm

Twitter is eating him alive. At least it will weed out the tweens. he he

Love ya Gerry…all of you…he he

@ManLESSton, I likely:I think he was lucky in Aspen because I heard there was a strange sighting earlier in the week. There was talk of a person showing up in Aspen, wrapped in about an acre of Spandex and carrying a snow board the size of a barn door….oh yeah,…he got out of there in the nick of time ;-)

@ManLESSton, I likely: lol check him out.. all cuddly and chubby. Sup ManLESSton! How was ur weekend? I’m back in London. work tmw. argh
oh dear, I keep saying stuff about his clothes and ppl think I’m picky but seriously… nice swimwear is essencial, especially when u know u’ve got that belly going and you’re gonna papped Gerry boy, come on. Work with us here. He’s not in the best shape but I’m sure he’ll lay off the cupcakes for the upcoming appearances. U guys remember what he looked like around the GG and Oscars last year? Not good. A part of me says good for him for not caring and just enjoying himself but what can I say.. I miss my eye candy. :)

@lanced:

Crap I apologize Keyla1987 didn’t read your whole post, you are right, give the guy a break.

@ Emma – glad to see you survived your Hogmanay. Glad you got home safe. I really want to try that someday. BTW we had a great weekend.
.
I still think Gerry is sexy, but this look is definitely not my favorite. He kind of shattered my illusion with a little reality check. There were some similar pics of him in the Mediterranean sporting this same well-rounded look a few years back but he was also smoking then too. So he is not as bad as he has been. The dude needs to push back from the table a little earlier in his meals.
.
But he is still my boo. *sigh*

That twitpic says it all….
If his movie career falters…..he can always become a Jenny Graig spokesman

I'll Bite @ 01/03/2010 at 9:21 pm

Love the shorts and **** hat. Maybe he’s getting a little color – and colorful – prior to heading to the East. Isn’t he supposed to go to Japan sometime early this year? He’ll be all HelloKitty ready.

I love Gerry, I always have..but…I must say that the very first time I saw the pictures i felt really dissapointed. He definitely is not the same, I mean…his body is not the same. But, who can blame him? he is on holidays and besides you must take something into account: He stopped smoking!! when you stop smoking you gain weight…so, he can’t help it.

He looks like he ate Jenny Craig.

The fish must’ve been scared a Great White shark was entering the water.

He wouldn’t be hard to find on Barbados. He’s so loud you can probably hear him across the island.

the twitpic is worse then the ones on Just jared

cubedweller @ 01/03/2010 at 9:42 pm

@Emma:
Emma – don’t you know they own him? Just ask them. He is their EVERYTHING! he he

I think it’s true about the smoking. If he were smoking his weight would surely be easier to control. I can overlook this temporary weight gain and say that I’d rather see him like this and have his lungs be clean than smoking to always be in top form…life is full of trade offs.

Oy, why is it any of your business what Gerry does or doesn’t do? I find it quite funny that you are so vehemently down on him. Since you have taken it upon yourself to analyze Gerry by some pictures, perhaps I should analyze YOU from your posts?

I would love it if you people posted pictures of yourselves. Let’s see how in shape you are after the holidays? Besides that, Gerry looks better with a few extra pounds than most people do in their top form.

ManLESSton, I likely @ 01/03/2010 at 10:10 pm

@amen:
amen – he was actually heavier in those photos years ago when he was smoking. That is why I don’t think this is bad, but not the shape I prefer to see.
.
I wonder what his butt scene from LAC would look like with this body. Oh nevermind… *wink*

I forgot about that ManLESSton. argh

You know, I can definitely relate to the whole stop smoking gaining weight thing. I quit about 2 years ago and I definitely felt the difference. But once I got used to the new routine and got into some morning runs, it didn’t really matter. You just need to find a balance I suppose. Gerry is all about extremes. Once u find what works for you, get used to it and stick to it, it’s not that big of a deal. He strikes me as quite an anxious person and everyone I know that is like that has some problem keeping balance in their lives in one way or another. Am I being too philosophical here? lol

Because he makes it our business.
Because he calls up the paps and let’s them take photos.Photos which end up in cyberspace, for the entire universe to see.

Since my surgery I haven’t been running. I can feel it in the tone I am missing that I usually have. I can easily give Gerry a pass on the holiday weight gain, I know I have packed on 5 pounds that I know will be hell to get off myself.

I sure wish JJ would take Leo’s pic off the main bar at the top. It is sure making the Great Scot look big and white. Oh well…

@ManLESSton, I likely: he he… I can only imagine ralph and gerry will be in pretty good shape for that. unless they’re going for an avant garde sort of approach so they can slack off on the weight but who the hell would want to see that. ;) Nah, G will be back to the gym, training like a dog and complaining about eating salads again. no doubt.

@Stinkylouise: RE: pap shots. Phannies don’t comprehend the marketing trajectory here, or just refuse to. It happens every year. During the holidays all the celebs with upcoming projects head for warm climates to see and be seen. The paps and tabloid press follow them. Hence lots of swimsuit and club shots for the post holiday film releases and award season. Not exactly subtle, but it serves a purpose. No accident Leo patched things up with Bar right now – Shutter Island comes out in the next few weeks, I believe.

This man don’t look good.

@Emma:
We were actually in LA about one month after that. So for fun we drove down Robertson to see what all the hype was.
.
There were at least 30-40 paps waiting outside this store/restaurant. We pulled across the street to the gas station and waited to see who they were stalking. Up drives this black Escalade and out jumps Heidi & Spencer whatstheirfaces. Flash bulbs galore and posing and smiling… After they went in to the restaurant a couple of the paps ran across the street to grab a drink at the gas station. Hubby asked them how they knew to be there at that moment to get “the shot.”
.
Answer was simple. “Their people called us.”

I think he’s still looking hot.
Like a normal guy. I would still do him

This guy loves to eat. He never fails to mention it when his physique is discussed. I find him endearing because he is so rough around the edges.

Stinkylouise @ 01/03/2010 at 11:13 pm

You know, with round 2 of the Aniston romance gossip coming up(in time for the Bounty release),maybe he did this deliberately. A calculated move to kill the rumours before they even start.LOL!

I think he looks adorable. Reminds me of Johnnie Donne. That little belly is there in some shots, not in others. Anyway, he’ll be back training in a few weeks for Coriolanus, and those who like him cut will be happy again. His trainer probably already has the plan mapped out. Leave him alone, and let him have some fun. He admits he gives it all up between shoots. Hope he has a lot of good seafood on the island and maybe a fried Mars bar!

IMO, that chick is not with him. Not his type at all. Again, IMO.

I love that he doesn’t care what anyone says. (And, he’s even got the ah, well ‘rooster’ hat with him. He’s something else.)

Just grow out the hair. Please.

cubedweller @ 01/03/2010 at 11:15 pm

ManLESSton, I likely @ 01/03/2010 at 11:15 pm

Stinky – I will give Butler a break this time. I’m not sure his ego wanted him to be photographed in this shape. He does seem really self-conscious in interviews about his weight.
.
But he hasn’t been in a gym for a looooong time. Even his arms are missing any hint of muscle. Damn…

Stop thinking of him in 300 and respect him like a human being.

Most of you, are jobless twerps with no life.

Leave him alone and get a darn life.

Effing wankers :)

LOL @ ManLESS for the nummy drumsticks comment! Then Giggles with the pie….sheesh, why do the conversations lead back to food? Makes me hungry! LOL! Cube, toss me a few choccy chip cookies, puhleeze!

On a side note, glad to see everybody back from their holiday reveling, warm and safe. XO

Trying to figure it out @ 01/03/2010 at 11:20 pm

Hey Giggles, Sorry don’t have a recipe for swan pie but try stuffing a swan in a turkey and baking it – might work.

Hi to all the usual crowd; not going to hang around, got to go do my nails.

@ManLESSton, I likely: yeah that part of town is a complete circus. I’ve been to LA a couple times myself and saw some pretty ridiculous things.
Did u guys see that larry king special, I think it was kathy griffin filling in for him when she interviewed a bunch of paps? It was quite interesting to know what they had to say, I think u can catch it on youtube. Some celebs genuinely hate the paps and do everything in their power to avoid them and succeed, some of those aren’t so lucky because they sell sh-t loads no matter what. They say there’s sort of a circle that goes round LA and once u’re out of that circle, it’s highly unlikely u’ll be followed or photographed unless something special is going on. I recommed u guys searching and watching it.

Gotta say this about Lainey again though she can dish it out and I laugh at it most of the time too but wonder if she could ever take it if the tables are turned – she even dissed one of her absolute favourites, James Franco because the poor man did not meet her expectations upon meeting him recently. Yet I just saw her on TV talking about how UNFAIR the expectations were in Hollywood on actresses and even actors to look a certain way and how WE the public are the ones putting the pressure on not the studios etc. Ironic.

Those who look at him as a god will continue to do so no matter what we say…those of us down to earth and living in the real world realize that the man is human and will gain weight from time to time..does not make him irresponsible..just human…we still love him no matter what..but yes the hat needs to go..we know he wears it just for the shock value..But, what are you going to do with him…thats one of the things that make him charming..

Check it out, folks! @ 01/04/2010 at 12:05 am

Did any of you notice the scratch marks on his side? Hmmmm I wonder if he ran into an angry cat. Or a lurking fangurl?

The fan contingent was bound to arrive once the IMDB’ers started copying our comments. I guess they don’t realize nothing looks more pathetic than having middle aged soccer mommies clucking around to defend a grown man. They’re making him even more laughable and he didn’t need their help. Wasn’t he teased because of them on one of the DVD extras from one of his films? Way to go, girls!

Anon, darling, I’ll bite, but just for a minute because I have to head out in a few.

Why do any of us have to have expectations of anything to have an opinion? I like chocolate. I don’t expect vanilla to be tastier than chocolate. It might be more tolerable with chocolate syrup, nuts and sprinkles, but I don’t like it on its own. I think it’s bland, boring, and a waste of money. That doesn’t mean I argue with people who like vanilla, tell them how misguided they are, or demand they be silenced. I’m not angry with vanilla beans nor will I write and complain to the vanilla ice cream coalition that vanilla has disappointed me by not being as tasty as chocolate. It’s called an opinion and difference in taste.

Some might expect to enjoy Gerry’s films and leave the theater disappointed. That’s normal when you pay for an item and don’t get your money’s worth. Yet I doubt they have expectations of the man beyond him making a film they’ll like. Normal people wouldn’t.

If you have expectations for Gerry or the comments made here, that’s your problem. Projecting similar behaviors on others is also your problem, not theirs. I’m not offended when he’s complimented or criticized, because he’s not an important part of my life, as he seems to be in yours. If someone complimented or insulted me, I’m sure Gerry wouldn’t care. Why should he?

If stars dress inappropriately for their age or wear something stupid, I’m allowed to have the opinion that they were silly for doing so. Gerry has admitted he does the same thing.

If it’s okay for him, why isn’t it okay for us? Is that because we didn’t star in POTO and get you moist?

If Gerry is so hurt by comments here (which I doubt) and doesn’t want to be laughed at when he looks like he got dressed in a port-a-potty, acts like a schoolboy (got you moist again, didn’t I?) or makes crude remarks and gestures, maybe he should consult with Tim Gunn. I never make fun of Tim. He dresses appropriately for his age, is well-mannered, mature and well-groomed. There’s nothing to laugh at there. I don’t make fun of Hugh Jackman for the same reasons.

BTW when celebrities dress like idiots, they set a trend with the public who blindly mimic their every move. Example: The Juicy sweatpants from a few years back (which were mostly seen on the least juicy asses in the world). I don’t want my eyes assaulted by their ugly, the same as I don’t want to inhale second-hand smoke.

Without a doubt you have probably sniped about plenty of female celebrities and a few male ones, so step down off that high horse before you fall and break your neck. If you have multiple chins to break the fall, disregard the last comment.

Just because Gerry bastes your bean doesn’t mean he gets a pass from the rest of us. That’s life.

I don’t want to see Britney’s p&ssy and I don’t want to see Gerard’s defeat in the battle of the bulge vs. gravity. He knows the paparazzi is there, so if he is bothered by negative comments, he can get in shape or dress better. He can afford it and probably gets plenty of free quality clothing.

“I find it quite funny that you are so vehemently down on him. ”

I didn’t think you had humor in you, but if you think me being “vehmently down on him” is funny, yay for you. You should read some of the things I say about other celebrities. You might crack a rib.

Check it out, folks! @ 01/04/2010 at 12:08 am

Sorry, it’s his right side. Maybe not in these photos here, but from some other I’ve seen really show up.

ManLESSton, I likely @ 01/04/2010 at 12:16 am

@saywha?:
Great post.
.
OT – I guess Gulianna and Bill made a baby. Their ad FINALLY fell off JJ’s page.

@saywha?: that was a great post indeed. I totally agree with you there. On that note I’m off my darlings. I’ll see everyone later. ***

Saywha, I suggest ignoring her. There is no way to have a reasonable discussion with the obsessed Mom jeans set. I learned that during the baby dangling incident.

To be clear, she was accusing me of picking on Gerry and having expectations, not you. I do have expectations. I confess. I expect people to be sane and have common sense, but they disappoint me every time.

I am disgusted by her unprovoked attack on Jewelrymaker who, as far as I could see, didn’t criticize the photos and seems to be fair, if not leaning toward the kind side when it comes to Gerry.

It’s amusing that she criticized me for being negative about Gerry, yet she attacked a completely innocent person. Hypocrisy anyone?

Emma, you are right about Robertson. What looked really weird was him walking up the street, stopping and then asking for the people he just had lunch with to pick him up. Even Paris Hilton isn’t that desperate or attention. But the boy did need to raise his profile and get a role and it worked. That’s why he does it.

I’m hoping that’s why he wore those horrible trunks. Maybe he knows he’ll get negative attention, which is always welcomed in Hollywood.

ManLESSton, I likely @ 01/04/2010 at 12:45 am

@oy:
ITAWY oy!

@lanced: Now Lainey has expectations?

He eats too much, and doesn’t exercise enough. That’s what happens when input exceeds output.

@anna: ITA. I doubt he realizes the photos are online yet. He’s probably bouncing around with a few local lovelies. At least the flab will let some of the more bony ones have some cushioning. See? I said something upbeat.

He’ll wake up tomorrow exhausted and will shrug it off because he’s still pulling tush. As long as he can do that, even if his physique is at Defcon 3, he won’t care what’s said about him.

@Orchid: I disagree. He looks like a huge sh-tter.

Here’s another more positive thing to say. Gerry’s not fat. He’s just Costco sized. Is that better?

@Check it out, folks!: Or a girlfriend he was crushing who was trying to get out from under him?

@Check it out, folks!: Or a girlfriend he was crushing who was trying to get out from under him?

@Check it out, folks!: Why do you hate us? Couldn’t you have posted a warning with that link? He looks like he swallowed the Heene balloon.

Check it out…..I’m one of those Gals! But I agree that he has put on weight…I don’t dig the pink trunks…He’s totally not looking his best! But ….he’s still one of the nicest guys you will meet in HollyGollyland! He will let himself go for a bit and then work like a dog to get back in shape for his next movie…It’s not healthy but it’s what he does. I’m one that feels everyone has a right to their own opinion…I have to say some are downright cruel but I guess it’s your right…I didn’t have to read any of this and I was warned not to but I decided that I have to find out for my self…can people really be that vicious and mean…are their lives so sorry and beat down that they would attack a persons persona with such vigorous hatred? I said no …I don’t think so. Well my friends …I guess I was wrong. I will tell you this…I’ve been a fan for a very long time, I;ve loved some of his movies and I’ve hared some of his movies. I am not one to put him up on a pedestal..He’s just a man …he’s flesh and blood with a fair amount of imperfections…He’s a human being….A decent one! Whatever happened to humanity? I’m willing to bet my life that if those of you who choose to be as mean and nasty as you can were to ever meet the man in person you would fell like a bunch of A$$e$…. So go on with your bad selves and get it out of your systems… It’s only an opinion and you know how that saying goes !!

@Francie: Francie, if you don’t have him on a pedestal, how do you know for sure that he’s a decent human being and one of the nicest men in Hollywood? Because of what you read or hear in interviews or because of what they say on the fansites? Did you grow up with him, worked with him or date him? If you answered no to those, then you don’t know what he’s like.

#201, your link doesn’t work. Maybe someone pulled the photo.

Why does any woman want to sleep with a celebrity? Even Gene Simmons has slept with thousands of women and he’s fugly. Tom Jones slept with thousands too. Can you imagine how many Gerry has nailed? He won’t want to be behind them in the tally.

Beatty bio is (thankfully) unauthorized
A new biography about Warren Beatty is being billed as authorized, but according to Beatty’s attorney Bert Fields, “Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America,” by Peter Biskind, was never approved by the actor.

In a statement to the Huffington Post, Fields wrote, “Mr. Biskind’s tedious and boring book on Mr. Beatty was not authorized by Mr. Beatty and should not be published as an authorized biography.”

Among the claims in the book: Beatty, a widely-reputed ladies man, allegedly slept with nearly 13,000 women.

He’ll rue the day he did 300 as that body was too much to continually live up to. The minute like now that he has a normal body for his height and size the claws are out everywhere. Good for him to feel comfortable enough to expose his body to the papz. We all know he’ll be back to his usual buff self in no time.

I don’t think everyone expects him to look like he did in 300. But he’s gone completely the opposite direction in these photos and that’s what many are surprised by.

It doesn’t help that he’s made a career off showing his skin on film and bragging about how glad he is to get naked on film. He’s been happy to be the Hollywood hunk and use that to his advantage. It’s only fair that it works the opposite way when he looks flabby.

The one time you wish they would airbrush photos they don’t.

One last note before I call it a day. I finally read what is on his trunks. “EELFOOD” and “I survived”. Maybe he selected this pair as a tribute to his role in Beowulf and Grendel, when he came from the ocean with eels attached to him. Good night, all.

Thanks for the pics! What a pity that Gerry has AGAIN let himself to add way too much weight. It shows so badly in his cheeks and triple chins… This guy NEEDS to have a constant diet!!!

and counting @ 01/04/2010 at 3:34 am

Beatty, a widely-reputed ladies man, allegedly slept with nearly 13,000 women.
=====================================================
no way.
even if he shagged a different woman every day for 30 years it would only add up to about 11,000. was he doing 4somes daily?
wb is definitely a supreme slvt but 13,000 is a bit high even for him.

Does anyone else think it’s cruel that this site http://www.ohlalamag.com/en/2010/01/gerard-butler-shirtless-in-barbados.html placed his photo next to an ad for a Gilles Marini calendar?

If he started when he was 15 or so, he might have come close to that number but I think exhaustion would have gotten him. He didn’t marry until he was in his 50s, right? He could have slept with several thousand.

He must have contracted some STD’s along the way, especially since protection was not a big thing in his day. And in case we forgot, he also dated Madonna. Ewww.

Have you guys seen the “My Mom Slept with Tom Jones” page on Facebook? He’s estimated at about 10K too.

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=43177189769

Where are some jellyfish when you need them?

I totally agree with Anon…the guy is an absolute hunk with muscles or without!! I would take him anyway he is…To the people who criticise…have you had a look at your image lately..do you always look perfect? I don’t think so. These actors are human and acting is there job…what they do or how they look when they are not working is none of anyones business…they are not gods for goodness sake and you do not w=own them and they don’t owe anyone anything!

Gerry has balls & isn't ga @ 01/04/2010 at 5:26 am

I think these pics prove 2 things…Gerry doesn’t give a sh*t what people think and he is definitely not gay. After all the terrible things I’ve heard here, about Gerry, my respect for Ger just went back up for this act of bravery. This guy took his shirt off knowing he would be photographed and ridiculed. Many americans look like Gerry does right now. I only just started back to the gym in November, myself.

How dare you call Gerard human and not a god. You’ll be kicked out of the fanworld for that.

You’re right that we don’t own him. I sure don’t. If I did, I would auction him off to the fat housewife sex trade and buy myself a yacht on the sale. Then I’d sell the sex tapes of him turning those tricks online and buy a vineyard in Provence with my profits. Then, to show I have a charitable heart, I’d donote videoclips to the nonfans of him weeping when he saw those women naked and realized he had to sleep with them. The fangirls like it when he cries. It reminds them of Phantom of the Opera. They’ll get more stoked to link with his loins.

I would also let his ex-girlfriends choose what sex toys the fangirls use on him. The exes deserve a little charity too.

PANCAKE GRRL @ 01/04/2010 at 5:46 am

Anyone who shags this guy must be prepared to be on top ~
if he’s on top he’ll kill you

Gerry doesn’t give a sh*t what people think and he is definitely not gay.
=======================================
He’s an actor. They all care what people think. They want to be liked and applauded. That’s why they go into showbiz. They want attention and adoration…and money.

How do you know he’s not gay? Have you slept with him? I don’t think he is, but there’s no evidence that he isn’t or that he’s not bi. Why are you allowed to guess and they aren’t?

After all the terrible things I’ve heard here, about Gerry, my respect for Ger just went back up for this act of bravery.
=======================================
Was your respect for him low before this? I wonder why.

By the way bravery is Sully landing the plane in the Hudson. Bravery is that guy who saved the person on the subway tracks. Bravey is that little schnauzer that put itself in harm’s way to save its owner and ended up getting brutally killed. Gerard being shirtless in a paparazzi hotspot to go swimming is not bravery, you moron. It’s the pursuit of recreation and in some minds, cruelty to cameras.

This guy took his shirt off knowing he would be photographed and ridiculed.
===============================
Thanks for admitting he looks worthy of ridicule. That’s a step toward sanity. Keep going. Put one foot in front of the other…and soon you’ll be walking out the do-o-OR!

Many americans look like Gerard does right now. I only just started back to the gym in November, myself.
===============================
There we have it! An overweight fan sensitive about Gerard being called out for flab. Tip for 2010: Lay off the Cheetos. Hardening of the arteries affects circulation. Bad circulation means brain cells die off. Dead brain cells means making stupid comments like Gerard is brave because he let the world see he’s out of shape.

When fans make stupid comments like this, it’s no wonder no one takes you seriously and we think you’re idiots.

@PANCAKE GRRL: As said here before, that probably explains the scratchmarks on his side. Someone was clawing to get out from under him. Maybe that’s why his girlfriends look thin. He flattens them out like in cartoons.

Before I forget, he earned every fat joke made at his expense with these photos. Fans, quit your whining.

Does anyone remember when he picked on Ann Widdecombe from Scotland and talked about how overweight and unattractive she was? He did that in interviews in Europe and on one of the late night shows here. Imagine how she felt having him humiliate her with that unprovoked attack. I don’t remember any fans sticking up for her back then like they are for him now.

It looks like his karma is coming around.

Die in a fire! @ 01/04/2010 at 5:58 am

@whatthe?:

Alot of people are out of shape. This guy can whip himself back into shape in no time and yet he is still secure enough in himself to go out, like that, in the meantime, while knowing people like you will talk sh*t. Gee, it’s no wonder Brittany Murphy had an eating disorder.

moviewatcher @ 01/04/2010 at 6:18 am

@mslewis: First of all, timeline wasn’t a straight to dvd movie. It was in the theaters when it came out. Second of all, know your actors. One of the main actors was only in those hit movie called FAST AND FURIOUS!!!!!! He became famous after he made Phantom of the Opera, but became big after 300. And yes, he gained the weight for a upcoming role. So leave the guy alone

evil ways, I just googled Gerry’s quote on Ann Widdecombe and you’re right that was a horrible thing to say. He doesn’t think before he speaks sometimes.

I love Gerry, is real, is not hiding and he shows that he does not fit,
I read an article that he says about the film with Jennifer he eat only pizza and junk food
So happens, man fattening,

I appreciate him for it he does not hide the fact that he did not fit
He’ll be back to himself ,dont worry :)

He must be paying her dearly!

@oy:

She bounced Franco down her list for pear shaped thighs. oh the horror.

Hi people I’m back. Happy New Year. I think Gerry looks hot a bit chunkier. Hi Nick, Dave and Dan if your out there say hi X

choux choux @ 01/04/2010 at 8:47 am

Hahahaha lol, he looks like my boyfriend, british, pale and flabby! I keep complaining but he won’t exercise.

lavender1960 @ 01/04/2010 at 8:52 am

Does this mean he won’t be in LA for the People’s Choice Awards on Jan. 6th, given he is nominated in one category?

I admire a man who dares to wear pink.

I’m all for a guy who isn’t afraid of wearing a bit of color but that is just atrocious. There’s all kinds of wrong with these shorts. If he was wearing something a bit more flattering, I don’t think he would look so unattractive.

Happy medium @ 01/04/2010 at 9:10 am

Men, courtesy of a naturally higher amount of muscle mass, have the advantage of being able to lose weight quicker than women; I don’t think they understand how much harder it is for a woman. There is just so much pressure to look good ALL the time and then one has to live up to fluctuating messages and standards put forth by the media as to what is acceptable or not acceptable. There are people that would starve themselves rather than be caught having a moment of human weakness, which we are all susceptible to. If you don’t fit into what Hollywood has deemed as “beautiful” then you end up constantly battling with self esteem issues. Who the hell doesn’t get sick of that sh*t? Who doesn’t get tired of living up to what we see on TV? Why sure, there’s an issue of being healthy, but there is also the issue of not being a slave to what the media tells/sells us is “beautiful”. I’m sure even celebrities get tired of the pressure to always look this way or that. Surely even they like to be able to eat what they want during the holidays.

@lavender1960

I think winners are notified in advance. So I guess he lost.

Guess it’s true what they say about gals. Don’t matter if you’re old, unfit & flabby as long as you have moolah. It’s the money that turns them on, not the man. My g/f’d dump me I lookd that bad.

Where is Jennifer Maniston? Oh! The romance will be back on when The Bounty promotion starts!

@at the remarks made about the scratches, maybe it’s from a scratchy sweater he wore in Aspen? Just a guess. I understand about sensitive skin, lol! Keep that Tide FAR away from me!

@Fritz: maybe Stretch marks? LOL

from the web
That’s not Gerard Butler, that’s my plumber flaunting his riches after over-charging me.
That *******!

How ugly can someone look in a bathing suit?
EEWWWWWWWWWWWW
Hollywood is so fake.

@Mark: Dude you are so wrong saying that GB fans love him because he’s rich. What events in your life have distorted your views that you would come up with a conclusion like that?
And don’t even think about giving me some stupid anecdote.

Such a let down, wow. And l thought he was ”hot” in 300…well this just shows you how maleable these holyweird stars are…they’re not serious about the characters they play they’re phonies…

@joan: uhm, reality check…he’s not playing leonidas anymore darling, therefore he’s not being serious about a character because he’s being himself here. lol what u said makes no sense whatsoever.

lovemesomegerry @ 01/04/2010 at 12:40 pm

Gerry will be looking fabulous in time for his next movie. He has said he doesn’t do moderation, he’s either working out like a maniac or stuffing himself. He’s on vacation, Leave the guy alone. He’s a real person, not a botoxed, plastic phony. And really, he’s not exactly obese. He can park his shoes under my bed anytime.

Those shorts are hot. Where are all the people from the other topics

@Stinkylouise: i just read that lol ouch

Stinkylouise @ 01/04/2010 at 1:16 pm

@anna – Actually ,that’s pretty tame compared to comments from other bloggers.

@lovemesomegerry- It’s too late to leave him alone. The photos are all over the net today.

Happy New Year Dave, Dan and Nick if your reading this topic X

Will there be a sequel to 300?

@bbwloversmatch.com: There will most likely be a prequel, called Xerxes as Frank Miller said. Look it up, there are a few articles around.

Bounty PR is beginning, Hollywood is so sad sometimes

http://www.nowmagazine.co.uk/celebrity-news/436241/jennifer-aniston-flirts-with-danger/1/#commentsList

“With an all-out bid to reignite their romance, a lonely Jennifer Aniston’s been bombarding Gerard Butler with phone calls, sexy texts and emails”.

Lainey is a pathetic jerk.

HA HA
it was about time. It’s just gonna get worse from here. This is pathetic.

cubedweller @ 01/04/2010 at 2:23 pm

@anna: Sad. And poor us, because we have almost 3 long months of this garbage to look forward to. Butler better dust off his wll-used denial speech, yet again.
@ Stinky: Same old same old from Lainey. Not one word about the shorts? She is off her game. To much celebrating the holidays, maybe.

He needs to work out, he’s getting fat

I liken Lainey to a schoolyard bully who says humiliating things about others to build up her own ego.

Does she have a real job, or is her blog – which she uses in an attempt to amuse other bottom feeders – her only contribution to the world?

@Gracey: she has a job on tv in canada.

Lainey is E!’s Canadian version of Ted Casablanca, she does periodic gossip spots on eTalk, Canadian TV entertainment news show.

darkangel @ 01/04/2010 at 2:48 pm

@Die in a fire!:

D_mn, just admit it…..he looks TERRIBLE! Plain and simple. Why the need to defend his honor at every possible turn?! Sometimes things simply are what they are – and right now he’s a hot mess and then some!
As far your dumb_ss body comparison to your fellow posters:
HE’S RICH AND FAMOUS! HE GETS PAID RIDICULOUS SUMS OF $$ TO MAINTAIN A CERTAIN IMAGE. LOOKING A CERTAIN WAY IS HIS JOB DESCRIPTION, one in which he CHOSE. The body wouldn’t matter at all if he would have gone the David Thewlis route and tried to be a serious actor. But he CHOSE to be a marginally talented hack whose only discernible appeal was in how he looked – do you think its a coincidence that he’s shirtless in EVERY one of his movies?

@evilways: I didn’t know that about Him. I’ve always thought he was funny in interviews but if he’s going around making fun of people for their weight then he must be a jerk. What goes around comes around.

@macbeth: this is nothing, there are previous threads that got more than 1,800 comments.

Poor, Gerry. A little pauch and you’d think he’s done for good! After all the comments everywhere, he’ll likely be back in shape quicker than he intended to be.

Anyway, I don’t think he looks so bad., nothing a few weeks back training won’t fix. Now “bad” were those pictures a couple of years ago of Russell Crowe with the ponytail and huuuuuge beer gut. That WAS fat.

Stinkylouise @ 01/04/2010 at 4:07 pm

@cubedweller – I was expecting something more scathing from Lainey. This was disappointing.

Bounty must really suck if they’re starting the romance cr*p this soon.

herewegoangain @ 01/04/2010 at 4:08 pm

Bringing in the New Year with the same old same old. . . Hey Lainey. The Butler-Aniston saga is going nowhere. Anyone with any intelligence can see she is not his type and she can never fly under the radar. No serious fling there.

I guess all you people critical of Gerry’s body must work out every day and are perfect 10s. So I am learning looks are the only thing that makes an actor interesting. Why not go back to the time when anybody over the age of 29 should not be in that industry.

I’m bored.

He is fat and unatractive and the woman is s uglu with too much fat on the hips.

@herewegoangain: You’re mistaken. Looks are the only thing that made this particular actor interesting and not by much. He’s not Anthony Hopkins. His career has been based on his appearance and he had no problem with that when it gave him fame and fortune. Talent is harder to come by.

He is not a great actor and has little else to offer. If he’s going to let himself look like every other pudgy middle-aged man, he had better amp up the acting talent. Maybe now he will have to stop relying on taking his shirt off in every film.

BTW I looked up those comments he made about that Scottish woman. They were very mean. It’s like the people who picked on Susan Boyle. They think they’re too cool for school and pick on others. Now it’s come back to him.

I also wonder why none of the fans think it was inappropriate for him to make fun of that woman, but they’re having a fit that others are teasing him about being chubby. He should be held to the same standard of behavior as anyone else. Just because he’s a male celebrity they lust for doesn’t make it okay for him to be mean.

@cece:

The show Inside Edition had a little feature comparing GB as Leonidas and
on the beach in Barbados. Poor guy.

Ann Widdecombe is a bag of wind politician, member of Parliament. Who cares what anyone says about her ilk. Nothing worse than a politician…well, almost.

Can we get back onto a sensible topic. Dave please come back we need someone sensible on here X

cubedweller @ 01/04/2010 at 6:07 pm

@cece: Well said. Those comments he made about Ann Widdecombe have come roaring back to bite him in the @ss. No matter what she does for a living, the woman is 62, old enough to be his mother, and it was rude of him to ridicule her appearance.
.
Butler’s phannies are incapable of seeing any wrongdoing on his part. They rush to his defense no matter what he says or does. They are blindly loyal, which emboldens him to keep doing what he’s doing – sometimes trying to be funny at another person’s expense, or making crude and belittling remarks about women. It’s ongoing enabling.
.
Beach pics aside, Butler is at a crossroads now. Beyond what he looks like on any given day, I think his bigger concern should be the loud and widespread trashing of his acting ability, and his choice of film roles. He is either going to continue trying to market himself as the Scottish Stud, or is going to have to find a new path. Either serious actor refining his craft, or going full-time to a more behind the scenes role, such as producer. Hopefully he will work toward both. I like the sound of some of his upcoming projects. It will be very interesting to see where he goes from here.

I’m not a phannie, I just don’t like Ann Widdecome and her politics. I’ve called her far worse. (And in the states, think of the SNL jokes about Janet Reno’s looks. Anyone here get up in arms over that?)

Anyway, I’m kind of bemused at the fuss over Butler’s body. He looks just about like he did in those photos from Ischia a few years back. No one talked about the body then, just the 1,400 women he was pictured kanoodling with.

realitycheck @ 01/04/2010 at 6:32 pm

No one talked about the body then, just the 1,400 women he was pictured kanoodling with.
***********************

Yes they did. They cut him shreds than too. I see pictures of celebrities all the time at their worst. Thank God no one cares what I look like on the beach.

It seems the consensus is that Gerry’s remarks about Ms. Widdecombe came back and bit him in the butt. I wonder if that will happen to others.

@cubedweller: I’m with you cube. There are a lot people out there who have questioned his acting abilities and continue to do so and it doesn’t help that his latest films were disasters in terms of critical acclaim. I don’t remember exactly who said it in a different thread, but Gerry has reached a point that if he really wants to keep doing this, he’s gotta worry less about the paycheck and how famous his costars are and more about story-telling, character driven films and just shake it up a little. He’s not exactly poor that he needs to be paid 10 million every time he wants to do an indie film or a play. That’s not an excuse in my book. Do some theatre as well, stretch those acting muscles, live out of hollywood for a bit. I think it was Cate Blanchett who said in an interview that she doesn’t exist in that HW world. There’s too much noise and the noise doesn’t interest her, the work does. Nuff said, no? X
ps: on a different note, ppl are going so mental about this photos that a lot of them are actually saying they doubt his body was “real” in 300 and that he took steroids. lol that’s just mean.

Not attractive @ 01/04/2010 at 6:54 pm

WAAY out of shape there Gerry boy.

A lot of people did think it was mean to speak of Janet Reno like they did. Same with Susan Boyle. We wonder why women have issues with their body image and have more trouble with depression, not to mention expectations of what they’re expected to live up to, well there you have it. Having someone talk smack about you on national tv doesn’t help. If Gerry is getting it coming home to roose on him now, it’s just desserts.

Widdecombe might be a horrible politician and a lousy person for all I know. If he would have said that, then he would be justified. Attacking her for her appearance when she is old enough to be his grandma was unprovoked and the act of a coward seeking cheap laughs at someone else’s expense. The joke is on Gerry now and I hope he gets his feelings hurt badly enough to realize he shouldn’t do that to others.

It gets harder to lose the weight as you get older, so he will need to get back with his trainer as soon as he returns home if he wants to keep advertising himself as a Scottish Stud. Right now, he’s more like a Scottish Spud.

Hopefully he’ll think a litle more before he opens up his big mouth in the new year and learn to be a little more compassionate toward others. Either way, I’m still in shock that his fans (many of whom make Widdecomebe look young and svelte) ignore that he makes fun of women who look just like them and then make excuses for when he gets tubby and defend him. They’re like those women who marry Death Row inmates.

Yank The Chain @ 01/04/2010 at 6:59 pm

Man..the guy gains abit of weight and people are flipping out? Yes, okay already ..he is Human…Wow..since we’ve got that established…cool your jets…Gerry was awesome in 300 but no one person can live up to having that kind of body 24/7..I mean you could…but what kind of life would that be?…Arnold had one and had a heart attack?..hummm..I think he looks okay..He’s on vacation..who cares..I wish I had half of what he earns for traveling like that..damn..I’ve decided this World is Shallow..very shallow..alot of finger pointing…Maybe some of you should check your body out?

oops there
anyway, Gerry definitely has foot in the mouth disease. No doubt about that, he’s gotten himself in trouble so many times because of it I’ve stopped counting. I wouldn’t go as far as you did but there’s def something there. As far as his mighty fangirls go, do not even try and rationalize with them. It’s a lost battle.

obviously he s not in shape, meaning he s far from lean, but that s the thing, he still has muscles, they are jsut cover by some fat, he ll do like jason statham or daniel craig, he ll work out and above all things adjust his diet in order to make go away those extra pounds

cubedweller @ 01/04/2010 at 7:13 pm

@Emma: I completely agree that he should do some theatre. It’s good discipline and it’s immediate gratification for someone who loves to perform as much as Butler does. I said a couple of threads ago that I would love to see him take on a cable tv role as well. Some of the best writing is out there in short-run series, like “In Treatment” or “Deadwood”. He could still do films since these series don’t require super long commitments. I notice that a number of gifted actors are gravitating to series, because of the quality of the writing, as well as the chance for greater, more in-depth character development.
.
As far as 300 is concerned, there is plenty of film out there showing behind the scenes of the actual filming. If anyone doubts the reality of Butler’s physical transformation for that role – they can see for themselves that it was genuine.

Yank The Chain @ 01/04/2010 at 7:17 pm

cube
I agree…That was genuine..I have the 300 book..The graphics alone in the movie were incredible…I’m a movie buff..so when I saw 300..I was stunned. Gerry’s solo battle dance was great too..I really believe that movie will live on through the test of time..Gerry defintely was King Leonidas out there..no question about it..

Yeah it’s kinda amazing to me how people just like to stir sh-t up. It’s out there for anyone who wants proof but whatever.
As far as cable shows go cube, I’m not the best person to say cause I’m not a huge tv person although I do enjoy some american series. This is gonna be an interesting year for him nevertheless and let’s just hope the bounty doesn’t do as much damage as we’re predicting. Everytime I think rotten tomatoes and all those critics together I cringe. lol it won’t be pretty. I don’t wanna be negative but it’s just how it’s looking, isn’t it? ai…

@Emma: What is out there for anyone who wants proof??

@Rosa: how real those 300 abs were

Sam Worthington @ 01/04/2010 at 7:48 pm

Thanks, Gerry! I needed that!

This is a FARCE @ 01/04/2010 at 7:50 pm

COME ON LADIES!!!
When was the last time you heard of this man even being seen with a woman?? This is crap. He is GAY.
Im not even a fan but I havent heard of him having a gf ever. Why no random sightings with women?? If so, why arent they piosted??

GAY!

Piggly Wiggly @ 01/04/2010 at 7:51 pm

ew i REALLY hope swannie stays where she is. please.
gerard looks like he eats hotdogs and sh*t with cheese oil

every body is coming to Barbados

what happened to his smokin body on 300?!

I gotta say, he looks much worse than he did in Ischia. He looks like he is about 10 pounds heavier than when he was in Ischia. His pale skin also makes him look worse. In Ischia, his tan helped hide some of the flab, but he was still skinnier than here.
D*mn Gerry. You hit 40 and blew up.

If only some great directors would want to work with Gerry like Spielberg, Scott and Cameron with Leo.

By this it poses the question: why hasn’t a well-known director worked with Gerry? Is his acting ability they are not convinced of? So far he has only worked with mediore directors in mediore movies showcasing his mediore acting.

It would be really interesting to see what a great director could do to stretch Gerry’s acting muscles. Cameron took a chance on Worthington in Avatar and he must have seen something unique with Worthington’s acting.

He is also prone to cellulite. His butt looked like cottage cheese in RNR and you can see in these images that he is saggy and cheesy looking. When you have that problem with keeping tone, you need to keep your weight in check and watch what you eat so you’re not creating more cellulite. He’s 40 now and it’s going to get harder and harder for him.

Maybe Gerard picks the wrong scripts and doesn’t get to work with good directors or maybe they don’t want to work with him. Cameron’s company is allegedly coproducing one of Gerard’s upcoming projects.

He needs to do something with Scorcese or Eastwood. Working with directors at that level can make a career.

Takethechance @ 01/04/2010 at 8:59 pm

The internet is abuzzing with negative talks about GB’s gut. This is the ideal time for GB to introduce his girlfriend to the world since people are so disgusted with his looks nobody cares who the hale he is dating. Few would feel jealous of his mate.

@Takethechance: Good point. It would be the one time a girlfriend of his might not get torn to shreds.

Elvis has been spotted and he’s sunning in Barbados.

@Takethechance: How do you know he has a girlfriend?

lavender1960 @ 01/04/2010 at 10:34 pm

@cubedweller:

He did say what a buzz doing SNL was, maybe give him the bug for live performance again……..I agree – you got a few months off, go do a play in the West End or Broadway or off Broadway and hone your craft. I personally think he is a much better actor than he is given credit for, the question is finding and making the opportuntiies to show it. Coriolanus is going to one such opportunity and some of his potential projects certainly sound promising.

I have noticed this happens to a lot of actors – the early indy work is brilliant, esp if it is from the UK, gets you noticed in Hollywood, where they get typecast and often are the only bright spot in otherwise lousy movies, yes even some straight to DVD, and they struggle to get to that next break to make it to that whole ‘notha level. Some do some don’t. Yet have you noticed how many leading man in Hollywood these days are not even American – which I am perfectly fine with by the way.

Even on American TV – you got Hugh Laurie, Tim Roth, Joseph Fiennes, Jonathan Rhys Meyers with hit North American TV shows, and praise the lord I say. Wow GB on the right series here, too good to be true.

These types are all over the beaches in Portugal. We call them “sac de batatas” (sack of potatoes) They sort are sort of red and saggy. And they lack style sense.

gotta be kidding @ 01/04/2010 at 10:41 pm

he would prob. consider himself a failure if he had to do a tv series, imo, he wants to be a MOVIE STAR.

lavender1960 @ 01/04/2010 at 10:51 pm

Well in the old days it WAS considered a failure for a movie star to do TV or it was rare or very difficult for a TV star to make it big in Hollywood but those rules have changed a lot. Okay except maybe for Anniston. Well they still put her in movies. Look at Jason Segal – he’s doing movies and TV now. Who’d of thunk it.

gotta be kidding @ 01/04/2010 at 10:59 pm

i don’t kno either personally but from pure speculation jason siegel seems ALOT more comfortable and secure in his own skin than Gerard does, meaning i think Gerard is insecure and particular about sh/t like that (wanting just to be on the silver screen) and jason prob. not as much – he goes w/the flow.

Yeah although I agree it’s far from being considered a failure to do tv these days, I really can’t see Gerry going for it and imo, if he wants to shake it up he should just go and do some plays. Even is it’s a cable show, it’s still a pretty big commitment, especially if it turns out to be successful. I think he’d be bored to death to play the same character for that lengh of time. He just needs to concentrate more on his acting at this point and stop partying and showing up at every happening hotspot. Make people miss him, work on his craft and maybe hit the gym? lol j/k

cubedweller @ 01/04/2010 at 11:03 pm

@gotta be kidding: If all Butler will consider is movie roles, then he is keeping too narrow of a focus, IMO. He needs stronger material to work with, and the best writing is not necessarily in just one venue. Look at series like “Saving Grace” and “The Sopranos”. If he sticks with just movies – he’s limiting his options. As Lavender1960 pointed out, there are so many actors thriving on U.S. tv today from other lands – the opportunity is there if he pursues it. And I agree with the posters above who said he needs better directors. I would so love to see what someone like Eastwood or Neil Jordan would pull out of him.
.
As many have said, and better than I, it’s really up to him. It will be interesting to see if, long-term, he chooses “serious actor” or not.

gotta be kidding @ 01/04/2010 at 11:12 pm

@cubedweller:

“As many have said, and better than I, it’s really up to him. It will be interesting to see if, long-term, he chooses “serious actor” or not.”

Yes, i feel it’s really hard to tell at this point exactly where he is heading.

For me personally, its painful to watch the BH trailer; hey it may do well at the box office, but i admit, i felt cringy watching him do stupid stuff like scene w/taser, him and her running around like screwballs in the grass, etc – and those scenes got the only laffs in the theatre than any of the other dialogue-type scenes. laffing AT them maybe.

gotta be kidding @ 01/04/2010 at 11:14 pm

in fact, after that trailer, i would never admit to anyone i am a gerard fan.

@Takethechance:
Ha cannot and wont come “out”. Gerard Butler is a CAD. The woman he is ‘WITH’ is ‘with’ someone ELSE.He is a pig and knows it, but doesnt care. Why should he???
The girl is a true ***** for double-crossing her man.
She knows who SHE is if she reads this site. Too bad what she doesnt know that more than a few people KNOW, sweets.
Haha loser one day its going to blow up in your smug face! I hope i am there! Yes, she’s American, but that’s all you need to know. SHE KNOWS WE KNOW

Redhead in UK @ 01/04/2010 at 11:23 pm

jeez. poor Gerry is getting crucified now :( I know he looks bad but…what about its the holidays and the man is taking a little time to let it hang out?
And who is the fat ugly chick he is using to block the paps from seeinghim?
He looks surprised and kinda whoops didnt mean to be seen-ish

postwatcher @ 01/04/2010 at 11:24 pm

Actually I think he look like a normal 40 year old! And now I also have to say that these pictures prove he is straight!

I guess I am back on Team Gerry again after being annoyed with him for over a year.

Happenstance @ 01/04/2010 at 11:29 pm

@H.O.E:

oh stop trying to convince us that Gerry is not GAY. There is no WOMAN!! Haha very funny
BriJasAliKris was a four-headed BEARD. Sorry try again idiot!

cubedweller @ 01/04/2010 at 11:29 pm

@postwatcher: LOL! With all the mean comments coming at him from all sides, he’s going to get a backlash sympathy bump.

Who’s the fat Italian or Greek chick walking in front of Gerry trying to be seen???

She just happened to wander throught the shot. The one he’s really “with” is outta sight.

Happenstance @ 01/04/2010 at 11:41 pm

@tallntan:

WHY are you trying to convince us that there is some woman out there that Gerard is with?? Maybe he just wants to be with Nick, hmmm??

oh look, the stupid gay and girl scrutinizing parade is on.
losers
boring as hell

Leonidas? :(

I don’t get what all the fuss is about. He’s not that bad. You can still see the abs under there. It won’t take much to get the definition back.

I blame Bonnie Hunt for feeding him those fried Mars Bars.

And like someone else said a few pages back, this is nothing like Crowe two years ago. He was a big fat slob by anyone’s definition and apparently has gotten back in shape for Robin Hood, so this should be a piece of cake (pun intended) for Gerry. Remember on Bonnie he told about hiding out and eating cupcakes and frosting in a closet. He’s never put himself personally out there as a great body. When asked how quickly he quit training after 300, he said “immediately.”

I think he (GB) underestimated the long arm of the paps and the stupidity or interest of many on the Internet. Gawd, with clothes on, he looks no different than ever.

I think everyone who is complaining about a few extra pounds on Mr. B, which he readily admits happens when he’s not training, should post a picture of themselves in a swim suit for all to comment on.

I have another site I go to..I think its from Italy…the language looks Italain..anyway..there are more pictures there of him on the beach and of him on the balcony drying off with a blonde woman talking to him and hanging out with..I tried to post the link here but couldn’t do it…

OK…here is the link…http://lnx.gerryscorner.it/cpg133/index.php

Its the home page…scroll down and click on Paparazzi e altre

This is the third time someone accuses Gerry of stealing a girl from her boyfriend. I think this is the one thing that would turn me off him. I HATE homewreckers

Does anyone have access to the photo CJ is talking about? There is an Italian website for him and its creator or whatever posts on IMDb. But that photo has shown up there.

@Mia:

Type in the website I just posted..

I mean, has NOT shown up there

lavender1960 @ 01/05/2010 at 12:18 am

Hmmm he looks hot in the photos where he is towelling off, ha.

http://lnx.gerryscorner.it/cpg133/displayimage.php?pid=17192&fullsize=1

OK, I typed in all the stuff. (You are expecting a lot from us in this time zone at this point in time!) I don’t see a particularly blonde woman – just a small portion of a female face. But G looks good in that picture.

Thank you, Lavender. Now that is HOT. Why isn’t that on all the sites? Guess it’s funnier to dig than to report what’s real?

@Mia:

Sorry Mia…I don’t know what time zone your in..i’m in the United States…eastern time zone…if you went to the page there are 3 pictures of this woman standing near him..body shots ..so I don’t know what you were seeing..

@gotta be kidding:

I think he’s got years of creativity ahead of him.

CJ: Same time zone. And I finally got it. He is hot.

Does anyone else have this problem? I look at JJ and it says like 85 posts. Then you try and it’s still 80?or 380? I hate that lag.

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

Oh good lord, grow up, will you? You can’t steal anyone who doesn’t want to be stolen. If someone is happy in a relationship you couldn’t pry them away with a crowbar. The one who wrecks the home is the one who actually leaves.

Make sure to put gerryscorner in your favorites…the site usually has the best photos and most complete..although sometimes it takes them awhile to post them online…browse the site..they have photos of him I’ve never seen before..with fans and such..

Lavender: Wooooaaa. Finally got it. The boy has got it going on with somebody.

@Mia:
I just refresh the page when that happens.

lavender1960 @ 01/05/2010 at 12:46 am

Okay I see what happened, most of the sites are carrying the Splash News photos but looks like another agency got some photos too, INF Daily. Double teaming paps? Were they in the same boat?

Hard to say, what is up, there are 2 other men at this place, the one guy looks like he’s got a script or something in his hand, could be business/pleasure type deal.

@sandy:

I’ve been cheated on but I agree that if the person really loves and respects you no one can steal anybody from anyone unless they want to go..I have had opportunties to cheat in the past with men better looking and richer than the man I was with but I loved him and respected him enough to stay where I was..it all comes down to love and respect…nowdays respect seems to have taken a hike…

Well, I have loved this lug for a long time. Never any illusions about his body shape. Even in Lucy, he wasn’t all that cut. Just a delicious piece of God’s work. Gerard Butler is MY PERSONAL choice as this world’s most perfect man.

lavender1960 @ 01/05/2010 at 1:22 am

Bwah, Mr. Giggles, she even looks his age, I would guess, wouldn’t that be refreshing?

A decent person doesn’t go after someone who is taken. If a man knowingly goes after a married woman, he’s a dirtbag for doing that and might end up getting his block knocked off or shot. The woman is fully to blame too. Coveting someone else’s spouse is one of the no-no’s in the Ten Commandments. Isn’t it amazing how Gerard’s fans don’t wave their religious beliefs if he violates those rules?

Some who defend Gerard for that kind of behavior are the same ones who tear Angelina Jolie to shreds for going after Brad Pitt. She’s a ***** for it, but he’s just being a naughty boy.

Gerard could commit any crime and they would blame the victim. I guess that’s what happens when you’ve never had an attractive man pay attention to you. They’re a sad lot.

They’re white and well over the age of 25. One of them looks like she’s had a meal in the last decade, so there’s no way she’s with him. Neither of those women are romantically involved with him. They must be there with the other men in the background.

Without a doubt, he is taking in all the island’s natural resources he can. He is the sneakiest **** I’ve ever heard of because he is rarely caught with his women and considering how many there have been, that’s not easy.

No. Could be anyone talking with a pal. Get over it dweeb.

@new to this…: He has a concave ass. I’ve never seen that affliction before.

I doubt he’s dating the guy in the red trunks. That guy looks like he can do better than Gerry.

It’s like a flabalanche with all these pictures. They get worse and worse. With any luck, he’ll go to Sundance next and be fully covered.

Who knew that the jacket he wore in Aspen was actually body skimming?

Shhhh! If you listen carefully, you can hear the stalkerfans ordering their tickets to Utah. The question is, do the ski lifts have a weight limit?

By the look of him….any day now !!!!

cece, I completely agree. Cheating is wrong for all those involved. I hate this whole “you can’t steal someone who doesn’t want to be stolen.” It justifies cheating and it is disgusting. If you are in a relationship you should respect your partner and if you are single never ever go for someone who is involved.

If Gerry did steal someone’s girl, then I am disgusted with him. I mean with the masses of women throwing themselves at him, why would he go for somone who is not available. Althought I will give him the benefit of the doubt and just assume that the person who made these claims is just trying to stir trouble.

You can’t get pay for that kind of blind stupidity and I need to ride it for attention until I win an Academy Award. That could take a while.”

@oy: Where are all the phangirls talking about bulge in these pics? Nowhere because there isn’t any. He went from banana pic to grape nuts.

The men on Twitter are having a field day with this. It might be the last time his manager lets him go on vacation without him.

Some real minds @ 01/05/2010 at 3:18 am

Oh yay. He’s gay he’s not gay. He’s cheating he’s not cheating. He’s with her, he’s not with her. The one chick in the picture is a blond so where are the resident claims of, “he doesn’t date white women only exotics” competing against the cacophony of, “he loves ALL women”. I swear the human race just needs a collective bullet to the brain.

podge in pink @ 01/05/2010 at 3:19 am

Those pics make me want to puke my breakfast out on the guy sitting next to me on this train.

You sound so self important. Who gives a **** what you or anyone else knows? We all know Hollywood is full of egotistical whores, ***** and deviants. We all know you people trade sex partners like it’s nothing. We all know that flesh peddling, money and extending your 15 minutes of fame is what is most important in the hedonist’s paradise that is Hollywood. This is nothing new or surprising. It’s why most everyone wouldn’t blink an eye if southern California fell into the Pacific. We would just chalk it up to a modern day episode of Sodom and Gomorrah.

@larathecablegirl:

Oh good now I get to prove you wrong. While I do visit IMDB I never post there because I’m too lazy to register an account and the topics always get OT. What does GFW stand for anyway because Oy has already accused me of being this person once before.

You=don't know shite @ 01/05/2010 at 4:13 am

@larathecablegirl:

Also, you vapid, unoriginal wh*rebag, I started visiting IMDB long before I ever knew who Gerard Butler was. I started visiting IMDB to find out more about scottish beauties Tony Curran, Tommy Flanagan and David O’Hara. In fact, the only reason I gave Attila a go was because Tommy Flanagan was in it; he played Rua, Attila’s brother. However, I was definitely intrigued by Gerard Butler after having seen him in that movie and thereafter sought out other movies he was in.

This thread is getting good!!

This is so much better than that awful Brangelina thread that Gerry’s fans had to suffer through.

Thank you Gerbear for waddling along a beach all fat and pasty. We got a rocking good thread out of it. People are writing songs, calling each other wh*res and c*nts, writing arias on how fat and ugly you are but still wanting to f*ck you anyway. Good times! Keep up the good work everyone and that includes you, Mr. Fattypants, you sexy tub of lard you!

I am not this person, GFW, if I was I would admit as much. I have no need to lie about it. I just think people should understand that I have a thing for scottish men, in general. To be frank, I love British men altogether, really…Welsh, English, Irish, Scottish…but I hold a special place in my loins for the Scots-Irish. Gerard actually has a Norman influence in him as well…but he has celtic aplenty too.

The blonde woman belongs to the guy he is vacationing with.

lists and more lists @ 01/05/2010 at 8:35 am

this made me laugh – one review of the top 5 worst films of the year –

http://www.mountainhomenews.com/blogs/1144/entry/32331/
GB made two of his top five worst (Gamer and LAC) with Ugly Turth getting a dishonorable mention and only just out of the top (or should that be bottom) list for the year. While I tpye these words, I can hear the sirens blowing on the motherships and the mommy warriors winding up their defence of Mr Pinkyshorts output for the year. LOL!

OMG! I ventured on to twitter and looked at some of the phannies tweets, It makes me LOL that they are all on twitter, as the GALS and GBhomeworlds won’t allow any comment about their boy’s new body image! So they are going elsewhere to ***** or defend. It seems that even some of the GALS are suprised and there is no discussion allowed on the homeworld – moderated to death by Framo and her buddies. ROTFL!

Phangirlies surprised? In a word, mirdle.

It’s quite funny to see men on twitter all raving about G getting chubby cause it makes them look good and feel better.

twitter response from guys
.
commonlydia:yeah! Gerard Butler getting chubby! HELL YEAH! EAT MORE!
acousticperson: Hahaha gerard butler is fat :p
gwire: First trip to the gym in 2010 and I’ve already achieved a Gerard Butler physique
Fredoichi: To all ladies loving Gerard Butler, here’s he’s not so 300:
trib: WTF! Gerard Butler got soft!
ThomasChaseNY: Oh ****… Gerard Butler got fat!! Can you picture seeing a chubby guy starring in 300? That’d be like a fat guy revolution!
dublingirlokc: Just saw a picture of Gerard Butler i almost though it was Jack Nicholson from the neck down. I think he needs to make a certain resolution.
blm849: hey men! have you ever been asked: how come you don’t look like Gerard Butler? Well, now you do/can:
Purist_ If anybody needs James Cameron’s special effects or ILM, it’s Gerard Butler!

He looks so sweet and I think thst it is totally adorable that he doesn’t look like the perfect Adonis from 300…love him even more now :)

btw, his shorts look just hilarious! Gotta love this man :)

@Joy

That just might be Gerry’s intend: to dispel the shroud over his head about what a superhuman physique he has even though he said repeadedly he doesn’t have the 300 body any more. Now a picture worth a thousand words and people will leave him alone on that subject and start to treat him like a regular guy with a regular body.

But after the myth, what’s left? Gerry is still hot and women will continue to swoon over him but he will have to repy more on his acting now which is actually a good thing for him and garners real respect from the business he is in.

@requium: absolutely. I would really love to see him tackle more challenging work and showing the folks he’s got talent, cause quite honestly his last few movies were a big disappointment and the next one isn’t looking that great either.

Maybe he should look for a good small part in a smaller movie. An art house film or one by a well respected but less comercial director.

Is Gerard going to be at the Golden Globe on Jan 17? I enjoyed seeing him presenting at last year’s GG and am hoping for a repeat performance this year. And also, how about that People’s Choice award? Is he going to attend that? Of course the Oscars is not far along. I like to see him cleaned up dressed up for this kind of events. He is a stunner…with a bit of weight issue.

@oldtimers: It’s been reported that he would present at the GG but I don’t think there’s been any official confirmation from his camp. As for the Peoples Choice, we’re hoping he’ll show since he’s nominated but again, no confirmation and since he just got to Barbados… we’ll see.

@mislewis wen u gna do 3 movies in a year, including in my oppinion one of the movies of the year “Law Abiding Citizen” then u can talk. He’s enjoying some free time and relaxing. so STFU

lawabiding citizen. @ 01/05/2010 at 12:12 pm

@mislewis i’d stfu if i were u and stop commenting on how he looks atm. He had a fantastic year, made 3 movies including Law Abiding Citizen. Thats alotta work and stress. Now he’s enjoying his free time and relaxing. I assure u after doing wat he did u cnt wait to relax n be lazy. so again stfu

He looks beautiful! Manly and Beautiful!

Stinkylouise @ 01/05/2010 at 12:15 pm

He isn’t listed as a presenter on the GG’s official website.

Yeah they’ll still confirm a bunch of people to present so we’ll see.

Cherrypicker @ 01/05/2010 at 12:24 pm

His travel records indicate he could continent hopping within a matter of one or two days. So although in Barbados now presumably, he could be arriving in LA any moment. What a jet setter.

He is soaking up the sun to get the look of being suntanned I assume. Being Scottish he must constantly be in the sun to offset his natural paleness, which IMO makes him or anybody look bigger than otherwise tanned. From personal experience I would turn lily white in a matter of couple of months, winters being the culprit. Fortunately I get tanned really easily.

That’s some manboobs starting to come on!!! But due to muscle memory he can get his shape back within a couple short weeks.

Saying that someone can steal a person is ridiculous. You can’t steal a person! You can be dumped or leave someone, but steal? Come on…

In my profession I meet all sorts of people and get hit on quite often. I wear my wedding ring, but some are not deterred and quite persistent even when I say I am married and not interested. If I took one of these guys up on this would that mean I am absolved of all guilt because “he stole” me from my hubby? GMAFB!

People are either in committed relationships or not. You can’t steal what isn’t willing to walk out the door. Everyone is tempted. Not everyone falls into temptation (to use your biblical vernacular).

larathecablegirl @ 01/05/2010 at 3:08 am @new to this…: I think he’s saying “Quick! Run up the stairs and tell my girlfriend to dart into the hotel before one of the tabloids get her picture. I’ve been taking a lot of sh-t about not dating fat white soccer moms and I can’t have them see who I’m with or they’ll stop going to my movies and screaming for me at premieres. You can’t get pay for that kind of blind stupidity and I need to ride it for attention until I win an Academy Award. That could take a while.”

LMAO. *holding sides*

Hi Manleesston how are you ? Happy New Year X What profession are you in ?

@Alastair @ 01/05/2010 at 1:06 pm

Alastair, Manless is an emergency room nurse so she said.

Ger plus Jen @ 01/05/2010 at 1:12 pm

The campaign for the Bounty Hunter has begun.

Stinkylouise @ 01/05/2010 at 1:19 pm

One word Gerry-SPANX.LOL!

Is Fryguy in Barbados too ?

@Alastair: who cares!!!!
So it’s been confirmed.. G at the GG. yay. I really hope Ricky Gervais gets drunk, it would be a riot.

Stinkylouise @ 01/05/2010 at 1:45 pm

@Joy – Ricky Gervais is hosting? I wasn’t going to watch,now I’ll have to.

Stinkylouise @ 01/05/2010 at 2:09 pm

OMG that’s hilarious.Brangelina and the school…….nope just the kids.LOL!.
You’re right ,he needs to get drunk. There will be no holding him back.

ManLESSton, wise words as always. There’s no such thing as stealing a mate. It takes two to tango.

If one is cheated on by their SO, don’t expend energy on that party….move on. Their loss.

Stinkylouise @ 01/05/2010 at 3:19 pm

Everyone remembers the pap-punch?
http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory?id=9483897

So what kind of community service will he be doing?LOL

@Stinkylouise: It says he’s already completed it.

cubedweller @ 01/05/2010 at 3:27 pm

Interesting! This is just a guess, but maybe the “Win a Date with Gerry” fundraiser is the community service? OR he got to wear an orange vest and pick up trash for a day.

” Superior Court spokeswoman Mary Hearn says the charge was dismissed at a hearing Tuesday after the actor COMPLETED community service.”
it’s done I guess.

Stinkylouise @ 01/05/2010 at 3:31 pm

@Joy- Ooops! Misread.

So if performed community service does that mean he plead guilty?

No you can’t “steal” someone, but you can be a filthy and disgusting human being who hits on someone in a relationship. Don’t try and justify cheating people. If you are not happy, then talk to your partner and either find a way to solve the problem, or end it, but DON’T cheat.

cubedweller @ 01/05/2010 at 3:52 pm

Dear Butler – looking forward to seeing you at the Golden Globes. Please bring a date that isn’t Alan. Rent a nice tux for Fry Guy. I triple dog dare ya.
Love, cube

I wonder what kind of community service he did? It certainly was kept on the down low. A couple of months ago, I think in a radio interview, someone asked him about it, and he said back then that it had all been taken care of and was over.

Stinkylouise @ 01/05/2010 at 3:58 pm

So his attorney cut a deal.Community service in exchange for the charges being dropped.

@cubedweller- What if he shows up with Aniston?LOL

@Stinkylouise: They won’t show together but will be seated at the same table most likely in “support of the bounty”.
ew

And she’ll put her arm on his chest when they both laugh at something ricky says and the cameras will cue to the brange, it’ll be ackward and everyone will love it.

I like to see that happen with Jen and Gerry going to GG as a couple and seated together. Hmmm that might cause an internet meltdown and there would be blood on the street.

They won’t go as a couple, it would be kind of a disaster and a bit too forced upon us since they have that bloody film coming out.. but they’ll definitely be photographed together and like anna said, probably be seated at the same table.

tabletennis @ 01/05/2010 at 4:18 pm

They two present together on the stage and banter like they did in The Bounty Hunter and the audience will laugh and think they are so funny.

@tabletennis: lol that’s a theory. But I’ve heard that he was rumored to present with Colin Farrell. If they present separetely the poor announcer has to say ” please welcome the star of the upcoming sh!t hunter” twice.

Let’s see if the Chubler picture lands on the cover of any tabloids, as Jennifer Love Hewitt’s did a few years ago when she gained weight. Elizabeth Taylor, Kirstie Alley and Tyra have been humiliated with front coverage when they packed on the pounds.

Does Hollywood have the guts to treat men the same mercilessly way they’ve treated women? I doubt it.

Stinkylouise @ 01/05/2010 at 4:37 pm

@anna- Yup. She’ll do that patented,arm around the middle,gazing up longingly,routine.Just as the cameras swing in her direction.
Of course she may have some trouble getting an arm around that gut.LOL

Alexander the Great and King Leonidas together? Booyah.

Now Colin Farrell is overrated actor to my mind. Just saw the movie Cassandra’s Dream with Ewan, not even Ewan could rescue that shite.

Is Colin going to insist Gerry never do an Irish accent on screen again.

@Stinkylouise: He volunteered to auction himself to the fangirls for charity. There’s his community service. He should have gotten community service time served for willing to be photographed with them.

cubedweller @ 01/05/2010 at 4:41 pm

@Stinkylouise: I can see it now too: there WILL be much touching – they are both very touchy-feely. And yes there will be much camera-cutting to the Brange. Angie will wear black and look unamused. Brad will look bored behind his beard. And JA will be pushing the hair out of her eyes, and Butler will talk out of the side of his mouth, most likely saying something inappropriate.
.
I’m only watching for Ricky. Bring on the crazy.

@Stinkylouise: lol she’s so obvious. barf
@lanced: I think Colin is a fine actor, the problem is that suddenly he was doing 200 films a year and people started to discart him. (take note please GB). But it’s a given within the industry that he is indeed, a talented actor. Whether u like him or not, hey personal taste can’t be argued. ;) I think Keira Knightley is one of the most overrated actresses around and some ppl want to smash my face when I say that. heh

@sandy: Cheaters are self-indulgent people who don’t have the spine to take responsibility for their desires. If they did, they’d break up and move on instead of cheating. This probably fits 90% of the population.

Half of all marriages end in divorce, so about 40% of people are tolerating infidelity or don’t know about it. I wonder how that correlates to the percentage of the population with STD’s.

the punishment @ 01/05/2010 at 4:47 pm

This comment warranted stealing from IMDB.
.
“I wonder how much of the community he had to service.”

Stinkylouise @ 01/05/2010 at 4:54 pm

He does spend a lot of time in nightclubs “servicing” young women. That must count?LOL

@oy -Interesting piece at gawker on the double standard. But I’m having trouble posting the link.Maybe this will work. It’s the first item at the top of the page.

Yep.

I remember a friend moving his girlfriend in, then saying to me the very next day…”Now that I know she won’t leave me, I’m going to f*uck every girl I see.”

My reply was….”Not every girl will want you.”

I think the majority of the male species wants to impregnate every female they see….it’s very primal.

cubedweller @ 01/05/2010 at 5:13 pm

@Stinkylouise: Thanks for posting this – great article. The comments are good, too.

curious cat @ 01/05/2010 at 5:39 pm

Yow! I tried to post earlier, no luck. He is definitely not hot any more. He’s gone over the hill bigtime. Look at all the press. OMG. Men, if there are any posting here, we women don’t expect King Leonidas, even as you shouldn’t expect all women to look like Megan Fox but we do like a man who seems to care about himself. And for a movie star looking good is part of the job. Jeez, what a shock.

Hi Fritz X

‘sup, Alastair? xo

Not much it’s too cold lol. So are you a Mr Butler fan ? Where you I’m in Scotland X

curious cat @ 01/05/2010 at 6:22 pm

Man, I was away for two days and all hell breaks loose, with a new thread and more than 400 comments, criticism of GB all over the internet. Everything has been said. What do I have to add? Only this. All that stuff about the British Parliament lady, Ann Witticicome). He babbled about her on Craig Ferguson’s show way back, when asked if he was going to be the next Bond.It’s there on YouTube. He had joked to the press that he was negotiating with the producers and would only do Bond if this “fat old” lady could be his Bond girl. For all I know that stupidity could have cost him the role, which I think would have been a bad career choice anyway. Endless Bond for years? No stretch of acting skills or growth there.
My big gripe with the Ann W. thing was that GB whinged on TV about how the Scottish press reported wrongly that he admitted he was the next Bond. As a journo, I would not have reported that without confirmation from the Bond producers, but as a**hole stupid as those reporters were, GB was partly at fault for joking about it. There are times when what you should say is what he finally said to Ferguson after a lot of mushing around, “It hasn’t been offered to me.” Duh. How hard is that? Men, if there are any posting here, we women don’t expect our men to look like King Leo. It obviously takes hours a day to build a body like that and maintain it. Most people don’t have that kind of time. Men, don’t expect us to look like Megan Fox either. Some of us do the best we can with what we have. If a man or woman is a good weight and reasonably fit that’s good. I belong to a gym and I don’t admire the grunts who waddle around sporting huge muscles but can barely move. The best looking guy there is a former gymnast, trim but not big, no Ahnold, who can do amazing things for his age, like handstands. He has a body that works. Supposedly Hugh Jackman, who I consider way better looking than GB, is disciplined about his workouts and always halfway to needing to build up to Wolverine when needed.
Hey people, oy, giggles, cube, I laughed like crazy at your comments. Love the insights of manlesston, cece, emma, others I may have forgotten to mention. Threadwatcher, hilarious. Sugar, great.
Last bit. If GB is really going over the hill, I’m working on a great script about a great Scottish American that’s perfect for the way he’s going, GB might be ready sooner than soon. This man did his greatest achievements late in life, into his pudgy, scruffy white-haired 70s. If GBs’s career tanks, he might be willing to consider a script from an unknown writer with major Oscar potential. Gotta get busy scribbling.
Okay, okay, as Craig F would say, it’s a JOKE. Or is it? Craig might be the one to play ithe part. Not the first time a comedian did a tragic role. :) ; 0 Giggle.
Happy new year, y’all.

Hey guys, you are great. Keep it up.

We know there are paps on Barbados, so why no new pictures of him? Either they don’t want to show him looking good fully clothed, or he’s already in hiding with a trainer!

Curious are you a script writer then ?

@Alastair:

Native Californian transplanted to New Mexico nine years ago. The desert is pretty cosmic.

On another note, it surprises me that G and Aniston aren’t presenting together. I mean, I know he and Colin are pals, but…..?

Could they be doing a future project together?

Mr. Giggles @ 01/05/2010 at 6:52 pm

After all the ribbing G has gotten lately…… he has issued a response

-
http://lnx.gerryscorner.it/cpg133/displayimage.php?pid=11759&fullsize=1

Its too early in his career to let himself get so out of shape. This is no leading man. He doesn’t have the talent of Edward Norton or even RDJ to let himself be photographed looking like this. He is no true movie star like Brad Pitt or even Tiny Tom C. Best get back into top shape GB if you hope to have a great career.

@Mr. Giggles: LOL!!!!!!! Oh my, that’s too funny.
u guys are the best
Stinky, thanks for that gawker article, it was a good read, especially those comments. Waves to everyone!! ***

So Fritz you in the pr or the media then ?

@curious cat: Curious, those were some excellent comments, I can’t blame u for not posting more often, this is a madhouse sometimes lol but it would be really nice to see you around more often. X

@tabletennis:

BARF!!

Threadwatcher @ 01/05/2010 at 7:16 pm

Here’s the transcript for the article. Good one Stinky. The comments there are pretty good, I recommend reading.
-
From Gawker, written by Brian Moylan
Paparazzi pictures of 300 stud Gerard Butler looking all fat in Barbados have everyone in a tizzy. Finally it seems male celebrities will be held to the same impossible body standards as their female counterparts. Thank God.

For so many years Hollywood’s leading men, even of the leading and romantic varieties, have been allowed to fall into a state of disrepair after first seducing fans with their svelte physiques. Just look at Russell Crowe, Luke Wilson, and Vince Vaughn. This was acceptable behavior, to get all big and bloated and still play men who women fawn all over in the movies. It seems like Fatty Butler is putting this to rest.

“From Spartan to softie: Gerard Butler packs on the holiday pounds and shows off his new beach body,” reads the headline in the New York Daily News. “Gerard Butler packs some paunch on his Barbados holiday as his Spartan muscles become a distant memory,” says theU.K.’s Daily Mail. Celebitchy cuts right to the chase with, “Gerard Butler shows off his gut & moobs in Barbados.”

These are the types of headlines usually reserved for female celebs like the Olsen twins, who are a constant source of speculation for being either too fat or dangerously thin. Jessica Simpson, who got the “in the tabs good graces now that she has lost the weight from her Video Music Awards debacle in 2007.

Butler needs to follow Britney’s example (did you ever think anyone would say that ever?) and get back in shape and remind the public that he is a hunk of burning love. After all, look at what we fell in love with? His role in 300 was predicated more on his abdominals than it was his acting ability, and that’s what we want.

Sorry, we’re not going to lobby for more lax standards for celebrities. If they want to be famous, they have to pay the price by being famously fit. After all, if we want to look at people carrying a bit of fat around the midsection we’ll start following politics. Other than starring in movies and TV shows and making albums, stars have nothing else to do but go to the gym and eat right. They also have money and the access to afford the best trainers, nutritionist, yoga instructors, or surgery, if it really comes to that. And part of their job description is to be more beautiful than the fatties that we see every Saturday at the mall buying bigger sweatpants.

No matter what you might say about Madonna’s scary arms, she managed to keep a stellar body into her 50s. Same with Jamie Lee Curtis, Demi Moore (not quite fifty), and even Sally Boniva Field! These women know that maintaining a career as an actress means being held up to nearly impossible standards, and it’s finally time for the men to join in. Hear that, Val Kilmer? Better get to the gym, Alec Baldwin. Robert Downey Jr and Brad Pitt are still rocking killer bodies well into their prime, and that is going to be the standard for the future. That means Zac Efron will never eat another piece of chocolate cake in his life, but such is the price of fame.

The Star cover above, while predominantly concerned with women, also includes some men, which shows that they are starting to get the heat for looking good in public as well. Let’s hope that Gerard is the final nail in that coffin. We’re just sick of seeing man boobs with the men behind them getting a free pass from public ridicule.

@Mr. Giggles: LOL….he was over weight then too!

on that note, before the fannies decide to join the conversation to defend their mighty G and start saying that Meryl Streep or Philip Seymor Hoffman don’t have to go through this kind of sh!t….
newsflash
He’s no meryl or Hoffman and hasn’t done anything yet to prove he’s in that sort of path.
And when u’re sold as a hunk so ppl and especially the fannies can drool over you when u’re playing that guy on the big screen, this is just damn right laziness.
thank you.

I think he has every right to let himself go if he wants to, just don’t come to my face on the next interview or movie as the hunk u know? Can’t have it all Butler. Maybe he should just stay that way then so he can try and find more interesting scripts and be taken more seriously. I still don’t understand how someone with a working brain would want to be associated with the bounty but there you go.

Stinkylouise @ 01/05/2010 at 7:40 pm

@Threadwatcher: Thanks for taking the time to transcribe the article. I think it’s worth reading.
I still don’t understand why JJ won’t allow a direct link.

They have been dating the phantom of the opera, they have their history well hidden until now, they have tricked the paparazzi to preserve their marriage. I think they appear together because they want a baby if they have not already done so. goodbye to those who do not want them to be together. ahahahah

@Alastair….no, but I’m flattered, ty.

@Threadwatcher…Yes, the comments on the thread Stinky put up ARE hilarious.

LOL!!! One example…

@Brian Moylan: Darling, you wouldn’t know a labia majora if it hit you in the face. You can barely recognize a mons. Reply

JewelryMaker @ 01/05/2010 at 8:14 pm

@jenardison: Guido, you are back with the same old story.

curious cat @ 01/05/2010 at 9:23 pm

Hi all.
@alastair, I am a journalist, mostly print, but also worked in TV and wrote/directed and produced one show of my own, which got some local and national recognition but was very small peanuts. At one time I dreamed of being a Hollywood script writer but never got off the farm, figuratively speaking. Ya never can give up. Maybe I will become the Grandma Moses of the film business when I’m 80, but I ain’t countin’ on it. I’m a history buff with an M.A. in that field, tried teaching and hated it, but love researching and writing about arcane historical stuff. There is weirdness in our past that is fun to mine. I DO have a sript for a Scottizh American hero and I favor Craig Ferguson. IF it ever happens. LOL :) ;)

Emma #476. thank you for your comments. I appreciate appreciation. Your comments are wonderful and since you evidently are from Scotland they bear weight on this topic. I get pretty bewildered by the conversation because the same topics keep getting rehashed, is he gay or straight, who’s he seeing, etc. etc. I read the stuff and all the hash slinging and don’t know who is talking to whom any more. We need an index. My own life is so busy and stressful right now I can’t give a lot of energy to this addictive hobby but can’t seem to let it go.

actually the folks on the thread are more interesting than GB. I can’t let y’all go. Even if I don’t now who y’all are. What happened to cafe parisienne, who was so smart and got so bashed? Good posters get driven off by bashers. I hang in.

Mr. Giggles @ 01/05/2010 at 11:28 pm

@curious cat:
Hi C Cat…….glad to see you’re still with us— I agree that the peeps on G’s threads are often more interesting than he is

I hope he is in a sequel to the ugly truth, where he divorces hagl

Well, from a gal in the mid-west, he’s still the sexiest thing I have ever seen. It’s the combination of that self-decrepating comedy combined with the best (most gorgeous) face god has ever created. I just love him, and I don’t think I’m alone. His eyes just ‘take me there.’

better idea @ 01/06/2010 at 1:06 am

I hope he is in a sequel to the ugly truth, where he divorces hagl

———————————————————————————————–
or maybe she’ll shoot him

I love him. He’s so much above the rest of the Hollywood crowd. Little dweebs or people living on yesterday. GJB is my favorite. Simply adore the man. Gawd, I could eat him up.

Not what you think. Definitely in his corner. He’s a love. Such a sweet man. I just don’t get people who like to dis him. Quote me one thing against him from anyone Big in the biz. People who work with him love him.

Muscle Memory @ 01/06/2010 at 1:25 am

@Jane: But due to muscle memory he can get his shape back within a couple short weeks.

Read more: http://justjared.buzznet.com/2010/01/03/gerard-butler-shirtless-barbados/comment-page-17/#comments#ixzz0boJpZJuM

Excellent point and glad you brought it up. Muscle memory is key. 3 months: 45 minutes to an hour of cardio 3 days a week combined with 2 days a week of weight training and he will be back in decent shape. He will probably never be in 300 shape again but he has said he doesn’t want to do that again and it’s completely understandable. Gerard has the advantage of being male and they drop weight so much quicker than women.

Mr. Giggles @ 01/06/2010 at 1:35 am

That’s actually a good point about the double standard, however, the media is a far cry from the Hollywood insiders. The Hollywooders use the media but the press still have the ability to be independent of the powerbrokers in Hollywood. If only the media would be as independent of the current crop of political whores in Washington.

This headline is funny
Actor 1 – Paparazzo 0; Gerard Butler Cleared Of Battery Charges

Nah I think that’s 1 – 1 on the week.

the Brooooom @ 01/06/2010 at 2:10 am

Bro finds it hard to lay off the sweet stuff. 497 posts for just taking off his shirt? Not a bad days work.

I heard there is a new diet that will be perfect for him. It’s called “Ganges Diet” :-).
He is not pretending to be someone he is not. People that love him will accept him the way he is.

justasking @ 01/06/2010 at 2:43 am

The people who should love him would be his family. You are not his family, his wife or his girlfriend. Why would you “love him?” Are you mental?

Happenstance @ 01/06/2010 at 3:14 am

Huh? His trainer is that chick you guys thought he was dating! lolz She isnt in Barbados! She is Twitting about stupid fitness resolutions. lol
Gerry acts gay and looks it too.
Fatty.

seekingenlightenment @ 01/06/2010 at 3:23 am

Speaking of the “Dinner w Gerry” fundraiser at dotNet, and the various “gifts” one can receive, one “opportunity” for each $20 donation… Is this deal on the up&up? The way the whole page is phrased: not calling it a contest, no mention of there being a drawing(s), and no details about what gifts have been given, as they are given…it just sounds fishy. If there isn’t a drawing for each gift, including the dinner, there’s a total lack of accountability–they can do whatever they want, simply give each gift to whomever they favor.

Since Gerry studied to be a lawyer, I would think integrity and accountability would be of the highest priority. Is the “dinner w Gerry”, and all the other “gifts”, awarded in an up&up manner—as in, there IS a fair drawing and Fate/chance decides who gets what? Or do THEY choose who THEY want to receive which gift?

YOU Lose(r) @ 01/06/2010 at 3:27 am

So – “phan psychos”….Who won the date with FATSO?? Ha ha

Well whomever his trainer is he/she has to be CRINGING at these pictures. Talk about “work to do.”
The world is laughing at him right now…he did too much to cover those bad boys (t*ts). Now look at him .. LIGHT YEARS from Leonidas.
For men (ladies) this is like if you saw a picture of a fat sloppy BEYONCE or Megan Fox on a beach. You’d all be rejoicing.

Gumballs Mixed with Boogars @ 01/06/2010 at 3:34 am

@seekingenlightenment:

Did you read that fine print hon?
Its all subject to Gerry’s availability. So…this ish may not even come to fruition at ALL. lol

@justasking: yes I’m mental in a catatonic situation

Blonde in Cali @ 01/06/2010 at 4:08 am

I always thought Gerry had a “thing” for Shanna Moakler that maybe didn’t get to be for whatever reason. Imagine my confusion when I open my Twitter and see this:
@shannamoakler I want to introduce you all to my AMAZING trainer @AliciaMarieBODY she is my motivation to rock 2010!!
3:28 PM Jan 1st from web
So…now the confusion begins.

where is the fine @ 01/06/2010 at 4:19 am

print that says this fine man can’t find time to have dinner?

All I see in fine print is “No purchase or donation necessary to Butler Dot Net or Gerard Butler Dot Net Charity Group. Not responsible for incomplete, illegible, late, lost, mutilated, misdirected or postage-due proof of donations. This disclaimer is subject to change without notice.”

Nowhere does it say “subject to HIS availability.” After all, there are 365 days to make time for the dinner. He won’t be busy every single day of the year. And what you’re suggesting would be out and out fraud anyway.

Where’s the accountability is a good question. Your snarky response isn’t accurate, is most likely illegal, dodges a valid point, and only addresses the dinner, and not the other gifts, and the question was what method was being used to award ALL of the gifts, not just the dinner.

Makes me wonder if perhaps you are with that site, and are being snarky to shut questioners up and protect the gifts for the “chosen”, so to speak. If all is being done aboveboard, there would be no reason for them to not reveal the method used to determine how the gifts are given.

BTW fat or thin, he’s still fine. Thanks for the pix Mr.Giggles.

Mr. Giggles @ 01/06/2010 at 4:52 am

OY……this one is for you——I won’t even comment……

Shanna uses her womb as an ATM machine and uses the fruits of her womb as insurance policies. This is someone who would rather get shitfaced night after night in the bar then be with her children. She dates porn stars, gets in fights with girls half her age at bars, pours drinks on people, holds press conferences to reveal employee’s private medical information to the media for the purpose of a smear campaign, colludes with beauty pageant judges to discredit and ruin contestants for holding differing views from their own…I laugh when she speaks of “empowering” women. Really, *****? It’s “empowering” for women to accept money to show their snatch in a MEN’s magazine? This is a person who has gotten by her whole life on her looks. With her level of narcissism and materialism one would have to inquire whether she was:
A. an only child

Shanna=1 fake bitch @ 01/06/2010 at 5:51 am

@Blonde in Cali: I always thought Gerry had a “thing” for Shanna Moakler that maybe didn’t get to be for whatever reason. Imagine my confusion when I open my Twitter and see this: @shannamoakler I want to introduce you all to my AMAZING trainer @AliciaMarieBODY she is my motivation to rock 2010!! 3:28 PM Jan 1st from web So…now the confusion begins. Read more: http://justjared.buzznet.com/2010/01/03/gerard-butler-shirtless-barbados/comment-page-21/#comments#ixzz0bpMiNArc Shanna uses her womb as an ATM machine and uses the fruits of her womb as insurance policies. This is someone who would rather get shitfaced night after night in the bar then be with her children. She dates p*rn stars, gets in fights with girls half her age at bars, pours drinks on people, holds press conferences to reveal employee’s private medical information to the media for the purpose of a smear campaign, colludes with beauty pageant judges to discredit and ruin contestants for holding differing views from their own…I laugh when she speaks of “empowering” women. Really, *****? It’s “empowering” for women to accept money to show their snatch in a MEN’s magazine? This is a person who has gotten by her whole life on her looks. With her level of narcissism and materialism one would have to inquire whether she was:
A. an only child
B. child of a single parent
C. just plain spoiled

Good Grief, Jen’s office are working over time to make sure that the Golden Globes are the official first date for her and her love GB! _ who the hell would ever want to do a movie with this woman when this is the sort of PR sh*t that they use. I don’t care how much of a famewH*re GB is (and I do believe that he loves all the publicity no matter how much he whines that he hates it). I would be running away from the opportunity of presenting at the Globes as quickly as possible.

I hope that he got paid the best fee of his life for the Bounty because I truly think that it is a career killer – having seen the trailer was horrific enough, but NO-ONE could ever get paid enough money to put up with what amounts to a whole year of Jen/Ger speculation and stupidity. How short sighted is he to think that this movie will or has done his reputation ANY good?

On a more general point …
He is in the worst shape of his life, slumming around from one Pap hotspot to another, looking all of his age, out of shape and out of luck and soon to be saddled to another cr*appy movie after a year of dumb and dumberer flix that might have made good money (well at least TUT), and another bomb on the horizon with Bounty Hunter.

He should have been at his sharpest now, looking amazing, fit, strong, and pin sharp for the year ahead. Additionally, much of GB’s career has featured movies based on his physique and the impossible ABs etc, and less on his ability to act. There are so many young talents hard at his heels – the likes of Sam Worthington etc (and all the versions of the same) who are cheaper to book, don’t suffer from permanant ‘foot in mouth’ disease and don’t have the omnipresent embarrasment of the Phannies who are stuck limpet like to his life.

Gerry, It is time to wake up and smell the Starbucks. Your star might have been hot in the first decade of the 21st C, but we are in a new decade, Movie making is moving on fast, and now that the likes of James Cameron has dispensed with the need to employ big names in star roles and can open the door to bright young and cheaper talents to be CGI-ed and Motion captured into roles – being an A Lister (or even B or C list talent) has just got way harder – and you and the lazy teamGB have been well and truly caught out slacking.

Fine, the Phannies can scream that you are on holiday – but you are A MOVIE ACTOR – and part of your multi million pound lifestyle is about your image!

I am a singer and I always say to people that I don’t get paid for the music that I play – because I would do that anyway every day of my life. I get paid, because I am in the public eye, I get paid to miss out on having family close by and doing the things that everyone else gets to do, I get paid to make sure that I look like I am expected to do, and what audiences want to see – its no different for actors! I am very disappointed in GB who seems to have counted down time as an opportunity to park his brain and his career.

Trouble is, HW, Directors and casting teams are always looking and watching.

Sorry for the rant.

People he took off his shirt and it turned out that he’s not in great shape. The end! Does it deserve all this analyais and taunting.? Man the news must be slow.

Right. He looks like a whale and people are acting as if he killed one.

Wrong – he is paid gazillions of $ every year! He’z likely is being paid for his publizing of Bounty Hunter too! IMO people have every right to shout him out. Read back sugar, and see what double standard Hollywood has for body images. Plus he has been in Aspen with the Razzi’s following, and now in Barbados with all the other celebs. LOL!
Its all part of the game, but I think that the razzi s will love finding him now and showing him up for his less than perfect body. He has spent the last three years lapping up the freebees from being a ‘Hollywood Hottie, Scottish Stud, ManCandy’ and enjoying all the benefits of that, and Ppl can take a moment to send him up now.
He gets aplauded for his ‘hard work attitude’ in all the PR features written about him and its only right that when he ends up being far less than his images present, that ppl get to say so!

@LOL!*!*!:

I think haters like you are in for a rude awakening. Gerard will end up getting a sympathy backlash. Now that these pics are out, Gerard looks like an average Joe and average Joe’s will just identify with him that much more. Women, except the young shallow ones who are superficial and only care about money and looks, are far more accepting of men when they get out of shape, than men are when women get out of shape. There’s another one of your double standards, gentlemen. Get ready for the double edged sword, b*tches.

@JetLagged:

Don’t buy your phannies complaint – you think Sam Worthington isn’t going to have his own set of phannies/stalkers now that he’s hit the radar and the big time, happens to all the hunky male stars and apparently even some of the female stars if the Anniston and Jolie armies are anything to go by.

For a guy who claims to have many threesomes ,he seems the one who got pregnant..
Seriously, he talks the talk but does not…you know what I mean.
If someone has s-e-x, and wild orgies..well you would not be so chubby.Looks to me he drinks beer or something.It sure is not exercise with the ladies.

I once was chubby, even close to obese..and I love food..I still eat a lot of carbs,meat and pastries.But I go to the gym 3 times a week.
And lots of swimming, it all helped.
But most calories I burned is with my b/f..who is now my husband for 3 years.

Maybe Gerry really needs a women who he can burn the extra calories of with.

whatdoyouthink @ 01/06/2010 at 9:37 am

Mars bars, cupcakes, cleanse diet, lack of sleep. . . it must be hard to stay fit with all that. Maybe he should work out 2 hours everyday . . .this is his job and at the moment he has few excuses. I mean he is not a 40 year old woman who pushed out a couple of kids. I liked his leaner body (Dear Frankie). All that bulk Post-300 is hard to stabilize. Mass memory, muscle memory. Gerry stop bulking up.

Still he has an amazing presence.

He looked like sh*t in TUT and still gained fans. A little on the belly won’t change anything.

I wish Gerry win tonight for the best action star on the people’s choice award. I love this man, belly, love-handle, moobs and all.

Morning, JJ’ers!

*waves*

@PREGNANT:

Newsflash, if a man is overweight or even ugly, it doesn’t matter as long as he has fame, money and/or power. It may potentially affect the quality of female companionship – depending on your “generosity”.

He probably still looks thinner than an average american- so what`s the deal?

Ah, now here’s the difference, I have adored this man since Attila the Hun, the Jury and my darling Phantom of the Opera. So it doesn’t matter about the outside. It’s the heart and soul of the man that keeps me fascinated. What an excellent actor this man is. Can’t wait for Coriolanus. Enjoy yourself Gerry, you desevre it. Your beautiful,

Joan (HUG) ***

It was taking too long for the fannies to talk about his beautiful soul but there u have it folks. indulge.

just like the bus you’ve been waiting on, the ‘beauty of his soul’ comment is a given – LOL!

Article about a guy gloating over Butler’s expanding gut.

http://www.gq.com/blogs/the-q/2010/01/gerard-butlers-just-desserts.html

Even better, it mentions my crush, Hunky Stuntman Tim :-) !

anonyourmous @ 01/06/2010 at 4:47 pm

The Real Gerry is revealed. It looks like people finally feel free to talk about what he’s really like – and Lainey wasn’t wrong.

In late 2007, I interviewed actor Gerard Butlerâ��who memorably defended Sparta in 300, and who is now defending himself from a tabloid attack against the size of his waist. (“From Spartan to softie,” says the New York Daily News. “Gerard Butler packs on the holiday pounds and shows off his new beach body.”)

While I am on the record as being a fan of Butler and his work, I must admit that I’m taking some joy in the revelation that he’s been skipping the gym. Because back in 2007, for research purposes, we spent a morning together lifting weights. It did not end well.

Flashback to that day in 2007 after the jump…

On the morning I am to meet Gerard Butler, my cell phone buzzes. A text message from the actor arrives. Brutal, concise, it reads: Tim and I have decided that if you don’t vomit we’re gonna take you out the back and personally beat the *beep* out of you just so you’ll feel something.

By way of explanation, Tim is Tim Connolly, Gerard Butler’s personal trainer and stunt double (also previously a world champion in Tae Kwon Do). Butler is the star of 300–a surprise hit of Grecian formula that made $72 million dollars in three days thanks to a marketing campaign built entirely around an image of Butler’s cobble-stone abs. When Butler invited me to train at Manhattan’s Chelsea Piers for the day, it was impossible to refuse. Essentially, it was an invitation to watch the actor hone his craft. Best case scenario: This guy was Russell Crowe with table manners. Worst case: He’d be signing autographs at Comic-Con for the next 50 years. This! Is! Sparta!

Tim, the trainer, arrives at the gym first–all sawed-off biceps and bronzed skin–and he is hard to miss, what with that sleeveless 300 T-shirt he’s wearing. I tell him about the text message Gerry sent me. Don’t worry, he laughs: “Gerry got fat.”

By fat, of course, he means Hollywood fat, which isn’t fat at all. Butler, 38, shows up in track pants and one of those shirts that wicks. He lifts up the form-fitting nylon body armor and surveys his stomach. “The abs are coming back,” he says, pleased with himself. He has been lifting again for a mere two weeks. I look down at my own stomach: paunchy, white, Jewish.

“Gerry has good genetics,” Tim says, by way of apology.

We make small talk about the importance of stretching. Gerry stops mid-sentence, again and again, logging the appearance of every woman walking by (even the elderly). Lately, he says, it’s nice to talk to pretty girls, but anything more than that tends to get complicated. The travel. The work. He denies reports he was dating supermodel Naomi Campbell, but allows there may have been something with a 5′ 11″ former Miss Iceland, now a very good friend. “I’m not saying I’m some angel,” he says. “I’ve abused many privileges in the past. But it starts to feel a little cheap.”

Tim asks if we’ve eaten. I thought you weren’t supposed to eat before a work out, I say. Tim corrects me, ushering us towards the juice bar. “You should have a bit of carbohydrates,” he says.

Butler turns to me, smiles, and offers up his own suggested breakfast of champions: “Or a bit of *****!”

I laugh. While the next two hours pass, they do not pass quickly.

Butler mounts the incline bench at Chelsea Piers, with 45 pounds of metal in his meaty hands. Tim stands above him, an encouraging tutor. The training, for Gerry anyway, has been a bit easier since he quit smoking last year, a two-pack-a-day Marlboro Reds habit dating back to the Iran Contra affair. (It was the tag team efforts of the Chopra Center in California and hypnosis that weaned him off the smokesâ��succeeding where laser-light therapy, acupuncture, and electrolysis all failed.) “There’s nothing more mindless than lifting weights,” Gerry says, invoking a program called Power of Intention. This morning is not about one training session, he says. It’s about visualizing your taut body on screen after many mindless sessions.

Butler is training for a new movie, GAME, a futuristic action thriller he’ll shoot in New Mexico. I am training, I realize, for no reason.

In the end, Gerry wouldn’t need to take me “out the back” and “beat the *beep* out of me.” I did it myself.

(See next comment for the rest)

anonyourmous @ 01/06/2010 at 4:48 pm

After bicycle sprints and a super set of bicep curls, I am light headed and excuse myself to the bathroom to dry heave. (When you’re lifting weights with the Spartan king, you tend to push yourself beyond reason.) When I return, perhaps to lift my spirits, Gerry tells me a story about 300. Some of the actors, he says, though they trained like Spartans for months—lifting tractor tires and performing other G.I. Joe maneuvers—they dipped into some Hollywood black magic to get that now-famous eight-pack physique. No, Butler is not talking about steroids. He’s talking about spray-on abs.

“I had spray-on abs as well,” Butler says, “but I could also stick my finger up to almost the second knuckle—that’s how deep in my hands could go. You use make-up on your face. That doesn’t mean you’re an ugly *beep*

I return to the circuit, temporarily emboldened by the news. Until I look inside my spiral notepad. While I was in the bathroom, Gerry wrote a note. It reads: “Help. I am a p*ssy. Get me out of here.”

uhm nothing the guys says though is any sort of news to people who have followed Butler. let’s see, he was training for gamer, after being a bit out of shape, no news there… he was irreverent, checked girls out, worked out and then joked about himself.
seen it all before.

Very interesting and informative article: miss iceland, did spray abs, constantly checking out girls in the gym, his breakfast of champions, get abs back in mere two weeks, etc. See I told you no worries. Those abs will make a U turn in no time.

get over it @ 01/06/2010 at 5:16 pm

I’m not sure what reaction we’re supposed to have from the posting of that article. Apparently it didn’t get much reaction when it was originally written a few years back.

Gerry is what he is. You either love him or hate him. He’s never tried to hide under some fake pc personality. Guess that’s one reason a enjoy him.

That’s funny. My married brothers and their friends, now in their 40s, talk and act the same way when they think no woman are around, or at least the wives are not around. So they are normal or pigs? LOL.

Yeah, don’t know what the big deal is either, some peeps really need to take that stick out of their as*es. Nothing new there. lol
next

anonyourmous @ 01/06/2010 at 5:32 pm

Stalkerfans, it wasn’t originally written a few years back. I guess you don’t mind when men talk about women like garbage. How sad that you lack self esteem.

The writer wrote this piece this week as a follow up to the article he wrote before. Now he’s telling the rest of the story, which none of you want to hear.

I thought you’d be excited to hear he commented on elderly women too. That should make you happy. I’ll bet he didn’t say anything nice.

Keep rationalizing and trying to cover for him. Your man is a classless, fat misogynist. Hopefully this article will hit Twitter too if it hasn’t already. There will be many more after this one, now that they know someone finally broke the silence about him. Once Hollywood has a new chew toy, they don’t let go. It’s about time Butler was on the grill for the talentless pig he is. Lainey told the truth and you hate her for it.

fat & a pig @ 01/06/2010 at 5:35 pm

So they are normal or pigs?
==
pigs
try beating them harder. use a hammer if necessary.

it’s quite obvious this article was written now, u just have to read it. if someone else thought otherwise then read up
Again, nothing new there. Butler has always been vocal about women.. whether he’s hitting on them, talking about them, being irreverent, etc.
So the guy is a complete pig now because he talks about pus*y and checks out all kinds of women? get a fuc-king grip. I hate to sound like a fangirl from the mothership but some of u are just as clueless. Everybody knows what he’s like. he’s not a saint, he says and does really innapropriate and even dumb things every now and then, especially for someone as public as he is but that’s exactly why a lot of ppl like to follow him. he’s not pretending to be some moral and perfect role model of a person. He’s quite the opposite and if i want boring and perfect, I’ll go follow and talk about someone else. get over it.

anonyourmous @ 01/06/2010 at 5:45 pm

No. He’s always been a pig. We’re going to laugh at him for it and laugh harder when a writer with a mainstream pub, such as the GQ guy, busts him for being a pig and meanspirited toward innocent people, as he was to this writer, to that innocent dog he punched and to many others. Tony Curran said Butler was a bully in school and always picking fights and he hasn’t matured since then. His obnoxious behavior toward this writer is one example.

When stories like this come out, the non-fans enjoy them because it’s a nice counter to the saintly b.s. you stalkerfans keep spreading like it’s gospel.

get over it @ 01/06/2010 at 5:46 pm

I think anonyourmous must have some personal issues. Surely no normal person is that delicate.

anonyourmous @ 01/06/2010 at 5:47 pm

Here we go – anyone who says anything negative about Gerry has personal issues. You old cows need to moo a new tune.

LOL ok hun, u need to take a chill pill and stop making this such a big mission. Ok he’s a pig then. happy? He’s just a celeb, not the president. Good luck with that though. I’m not his friend, I don’t want to be, I never met him and probably never will. Don’t care. If u read my previous posts u’ll see i’m very far from being a stalkerfangirl. I criticize him, i joke about him and i also praise when i want.
U should take all of that passion and energy and fight better causes, your country needs you. word.

Anger management anyone?
there’s a class near you, I’m sure
what an idiot lol

Funny how people can get such different things from one article. I saw it earlier today and looked at it as ‘good ole boys kind of thing’ – the author included in a funny sort of way. I didn’t see anything negative.

amused observer @ 01/06/2010 at 5:58 pm

Now girlies, let’s not get your panties in a bunch over a stupid article. (And maybe anonyour…. is a member of a religious order.) Keep it clean.

She’s probably that twitter woman who thinks she’s Jesus and has personal issues about Gerry. That makes sense.

Mooooooo. That’s all I hear, cows. Moooooo. Have you called Jenny Craig yet? Maybe you’ll meet Gerry at one of the weight loss sessions.

Trying to figure it out @ 01/06/2010 at 6:25 pm

Mr. Giggles
How cruel of you to post those pictures.

Hi Fritz and ManLESSton

curious cat @ 01/06/2010 at 6:35 pm

@mr. Giggles. You must have me confused with someone else. I never said PSILY made me a GB fan. I think I did say once that as a relatively new widow when I saw that film, I was hit harder emotionally than I expected, even though I rationally found fault with the movie. I related to Holly’s grieving scenes, not answering the phone, dirty dishes in the sink etc. as if I were seeing myself, although I didn’t find the Hillary Swank character that sympathetic. She seemed frivolous, coudln’t keep a job, was into silly fashion stuff and those stupid shoes, threw a high fashion shoe in her husband’s face during the opening fight, which lost me right there.
No, I first became aware of GB when “300″ came out. I’m a history buff, have a M.A. in it, taught at community college briefly while realizing teaching history wasn’ t for me, but will see any damn film that purports to be about historical events. Every time such a film comes out you see articles by historians evaluating the accuracy of the film. So I had to see “300″, about one of the most important battles in the history of the western world. As you know, the Battle of Thermopylae (I think that misspelled that) rallied the Greek states, which were endlessly warring with each other, to band together against the Persians and founded the original idea of democracy.

“300″ is a comic book version of that event, but reading up, I realized I had seen GB in “Attila,” a TV series I watched because I was a grad student in history. That series was riddled with absurd historical inaccuracies but was kind of fun. I hadn’t seen POTO but watched it after seeing GB interviews, admired the guy because he seemed to put his heart and soul innto every part he played.
Then he came to America, so to speak, and every magazine article about him spewed the terms hunk, stud, hottie, beefcake. As a journo, I;ve seen the PR hype and it seemed hollow. When GB formed his own company I thought we might get quality films and we got LAC for starters. Where he’s going I don’t know but I love the folks on this threa. Hurrah to you Mr. Giggles.

it's getting weird now @ 01/06/2010 at 6:36 pm

I think we must stop…anonyourmous is going to have a meltdown right here on JJ.

Or maybe we should continue? Who’s got the popcorn ?

Hello to everyone! Big waves
would like to thank and say hi to curious cat, it’s always good to know people appreciate ur comments, so right back at ya there.
London is a snowy mess tonight, I hope u folks in the US are handling the weather better than we are here.
Hi to cube, giggles, ManLESSton, Fritz, Jewelry, anna, Oy, stinky and all of the regulars. XX

Giggles, how many times have I told you to make sure you put a warning on those links? It looks like part of his butt is trying to break off, make a run for it, and hook up with a better and less diseased ass. I can’t look at the image anymore. Those horrible trunks make me vomit a little in my mouth each time I see them. It’s like he had the squirts after drinking Pepto Bismol and couldn’t get to the throne on time.

Today’s latest news is Gerry is a pig. Like the Associated Press needed that tip. We had photographic evidence this week and now we have eyewitness testimony from someone who had to put up with him for an afternoon. Give the writer a purple heart for the war wound and better assignments next time and be done with it. I think what he wrote in the notebook wasn’t about the writer, but more of a self confession.

Anonyourwhatever-His comments fed into their dreams of him eating their p_ssies. I think he’d rather cut his lips off with a chainsaw (who wouldn’t?). He’ll get a mirdle for the GG’s and a good mortician’s makeup artist like last time, and the Chub Club will continue to think he’s hot and claim he got back into shape. He’s their hero. He got rich and famous and fat. It fulfills all their fantasies and justifies their blubber. They’re not going to let go of that. So gloat at his bloat and laugh at their lunacy. Everyone else is. That’s what makes it fun here.

anonyourmous @ 01/06/2010 at 6:50 pm

@it’s getting weird now: Haven’t you already eaten enough popcorn…and everything else at the concession stand?

I think they’re jealous of you Anonyourmouse. Anyone who can melt down is someone they have nothing in common with and wish they did.

It’s the same old routine with them. Attack the commentor and deflect attention away from Gerry’s appearance and crude behavior. They fan out on the web to protect his image like crusty battleships. They’re like unpaid and unlaid whores for their pimp. No wonder they’re so angry.

I wonder how many of them have booked at the gym in Chelsea and tried to see if Tim could be their trainer just to get a little closer to Gerry. From the look of these photos, everyone’s now a little closer to Gerry, whether they want to be or not.

It’s like he had the squirts after drinking Pepto Bismol and couldn’t get to the throne on time.

oy. the. best. knee and bow.

Has anyone see the IMDB “Gerry is so fat” comments? They’re pretty good. Here are some samples:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0124930/board/flat/154687105?d=latest&t=20100104192509#latest

11) When he goes to the movies, he sits next to everyone!

12) When he goes to restaurants, he looks at the menu and says, “OK”!

13) He has his own area code.

14) He broke his leg and gravy came out.

15) He has to grease the door-frame and have someone hold a Twinkie on the other side in order to get through

16) You can run out of gas trying to drive around him

17) He bought a donut and took it back – complained about the hole.
21) he almost got arrested at the airport for selling 10 lbs of crack….
22) when he walked into the all-you-can-eat buffet they had to install speed bumps.
23) he drives a spandex car….
24) his belly button has an echo.
25) he doesn’t take pictures, he takes posters!

lol the folks at imdb aren’t a creative as a lot of the peeps here but that’s pretty good.

Just curious, who is that tony cullan who said Gerry was a bully in school? Is that another famous guy who happened to go to school with Gerry?

I’m late to the battle, but I have a comment about anonyourmoose.

I think she must be 12, because moo moo is apparently her best schoolyard comeback.

Why do a few feel that anyone who likes Butler is some crazed fat fangirl? I’m neither and I resent the blanket comparisons. The same as anonyourmuskrat resents people thinking she’s a certain way because of her comments. Those on either side of the argument who can only resort to idiotic namecalling are no better than those they are disagreeing with IMO.

My, Mr. B. sure can get people going.

Call me when it is discovered that GB is an axe murderer or something equivalent to that. Yawn.

Don’t forget this is the guy who joked about putting donuts between buns on national television. Anoyoumous’ sensibilities are too delicate to be talking about GB. He/she should find a nice decent actor to focus his/her attention on, someone like Jackman Now are we all happy?

leopard's spots @ 01/06/2010 at 7:53 pm

Good gawd, Gerry, look what you’ve done! The masses are rising up against each other.

Mr. Giggles @ 01/06/2010 at 7:56 pm

@curious cat:
I remember you posting about PSILY in regards to your own loss.
But I thought the movie gave you comfort…..didn’t realize it was a difficult experience for you
-
I hope those pix of G didn’t bring up sad memories….certainly not my intention

**cheers**

Did he borrow the shorts from Richard Simmons?

I think he borrowed them from Pee Wee Herman.

Has anyone else noticed how many times the words dough and donuts come up with regard to Gerry? He wanted his own perfume. This brings to mind a lot of potential names.

catandmouse @ 01/06/2010 at 8:19 pm

Tony Curran was in Beowulf with Gerry and I have the impression they are good buddies. Did Tony Curran call Gerry a bully out of jest or was he serious? Are they still buddies?

Idealogybuff @ 01/06/2010 at 9:05 pm

I don’t judge a person’s character by what he said. I pay a lot of attention to what his or her peers or anyone who has lived/worked/stayed/dealt with him or her say about him or her.

I don’t judge a person’s character by what he said. I pay a lot of attention to what his or her peers or anyone who has lived/worked/stayed/dealt with him or her say about him or her.

@mr. giggles
I started to come online before I saw all the hilarious comments since I last posted, just wanted to say I hoped I didn’t sound like some pompous academic. I was just relating how I was introduced to this actor. Seeing PSILY WAS a difficult experience for me. I saw it in one of those theaters you enter from the screen level and walk UP to the seats. When the film ended I wasn’t crying, just in a daze, couldn’t walk down, not even gripping the handrail. To talk down that aisle and out to the parking lot and driving home seemed impossible. I sat there for half an hour in a daze, nibbling absently on someone else’s abandoned popcorn like a frightened squirrel, completely unnerving the guy who was trying to clean up the house between showings. I actually saw the film twice because even walking past the theater and the posters I would cringe. I went to see it a second time to take the curse off and it worked. Don’t worry. Your sends didn’t stir anything up.

I’m not immune to the sexy charms of the Burly Butler, although this latest stuff about His Royal Pigness has me in stitches, what I’ve read so far. I go back to read it before making any more comments.

@Threadwatcher:

That chick, small world, I recognized her name recently – she is also one of the looney Michael Hutchence fans, a bunch of them talk to his ghost apparently, cuckoo.

Still liking the Butler although not this current larger girth manifestation. Well, I’m glad I’m not in Butler’s shoes. He will spend most of the next two months getting rid of that gut for filming of Coriolanus. He may just learn that the gut is not as easy to lose this time around. Not quite feeling the sexy beast thing. Maybe more just the beast thing. he he

Wow I’ve been away while the major phannie spamming occurred. Think it is hilarious that they come on here and are posting under other names like we couldn’t figure that out. “Look deeper for the person within” crap…like we are trying to fall in love or date Gerry. WTF.

There will be many more after this one, now that they know someone finally broke the silence about him. Once Hollywood has a new chew toy, they don’t let go. It’s about time Butler was on the grill for the talentless pig he is. Lainey told the truth and you hate her for it.”

A Michael Hutchence fan? They’re hoping to schtupp dead men now? It doesn’t get more desperate than that.

This conjures thoughts of what they’ll do to Gerry’s grave when he’s gone. I envision large grooves worn into the gravesite. Oh the burrowing. The burrowing!

I just watched Law and Order SVU, and the character who’s story is that he is a cocky, conceited stockbroker who is convinced he’s god’s gift to women, hooks up w/100′s of women he met on sex websites, etc, and knowingly gave these women hiv – they gave him the last name BUTLER!! WTF?!

cubedweller @ 01/06/2010 at 10:42 pm

Waves to ManLESS, Oy, Curious, Giggles, Emma, JewelryMaker and all.
So I’m thinking that if Hunky Stuntman Tim works as Butler’s stunt double as well as his trainer, he has job security for the foreseeable future. I’m wondering if he is the guy Butler referred to on the Bonnie Hunt show as “The Enforcer”. The one he was hiding his cupcakes from. The Enforcer must be sobbing in despair over the beach pics.
.
Love the spanx suggestion. He could also try locking himself in one of those old-fashioned steam cabinets.

LOL coincidence or conspiracy?

People’s Choice award is a joke. All the winners act like they are so happy to win. Blech

@falist: If Gerry had won you’d be claiming someone finally noticed him and it was about time. No one likes a sore loser.

@realitycheck: Yes. In Hollywood, it’s always wise to believe all the hype surrounding the person, and the hyperbolic compliments they make in case they work with the person again instead of how they behave on their own.

Gerry and Tony Curren have said they have been best of friends since theymet when GB was a teen in youth theater. Tony even showed up at one of conventions and was pictured with a Gerry doll. Anything he said with a negative spin would have been said to be funny.

@Gracey: check your facts – Tony Curran was NEVER at A Gerry Butler Convention. You are thinking of some other event but not a “Convention” held for GB by one of the sites.

Paps blow everything out of proportion, a six pack takes a lot of work and this man looks good without one. I was expecting to see a lot of rolls and a pop belly but this is nothing. Not every celebrity wants to spend hours in the gym trying to look all the time.

I saw it on a fan site awhile ago. It may have been in Florida. But I saw it, I did, I did, I really did. LOL. But seriously, it wasn’t at one of the Vegas doings. It was one of the regional things. The phannies were confused at first, but then they realized it was a funny. Somewhere out there in Internet land there is a picture of Tony and two Phans with a Marek doll.

Is it Curren or Currens? Anyway, his claim to fame is that he knows GB.

@Gracey: You mean like people stuck up for Gerry when he hit a dog?

cubedweller @ 01/07/2010 at 12:28 am

@Gracey: Tony Curran is a gifted, classically trained actor with a long list of credits – film, theatre and television. Check him out in “The 13th Warrior” or “Underworld: Evolution”. He is a very subtle and intelligent actor, who takes on a real variety of roles. He keeps a low profile and keeps busy both in North America and in Europe and the UK. I think he will have quite a long and successful career.

Well, JJ is making his bucks from us. I feel a bit used. Good night.

@cubedweller: I don’t think so. It’s been tucked up under for too long.

@check your facts: No self-respecting human being would be.

@oy: Yup – we’re on the same page with that.

@cubedweller: Whereas Gerry will have a long career smuggling Cinnabons under his love handles.

I think it was Anonyoumous who posted the comment about bullying, but I’m not sure now after scrolling through these posts. There was an interview on .net a long time ago where Gerard mentioned something about being nervous when he saw Tony Curran talking to someone because he was afraid Tony would tell them about how Gerard used to pick fights in schooland was a bully. It sounded like he hadn’t seen Tony in a while. Gerard was afraid the other person would end up with a bad impression of him if Tony talked about their school days. I think they’re friends in that they’re from the same school and hometown, but I don’t think Tony and Gerard keep in touch on a regular basis.

Between hitting the paparazzo and that GQ feature, it doesn’t sound like Gerard has matured much since then.

Oh, this is the funniest damn thread I’ve ever seen! There are brilliant writers amok here! I started writing post numbers down to reply to with praise and compliments but there are just too many. LOLOLOL! Over and over. Fritz, jetlagged, pregnant, anna, leah, cents, emma, realitycheck, happenstance, etc. etc. oy#560, you are the supreme wit, I agree that on the notebook GB was probably referring to himself, not the journo. That’s how I read the get me out of here message. Why are so many sharp wits gathered on one website? I visit some where most posters are so damn stupid it kills you to read the drivel. They don’t bother to look anything up before they spout an opinion on it. They can’t write the English langyuage and they can’t spell. Oh, hell, I make typos too, we all do, but who has time for proofreading and we all know what someone is saying. The most interesting thing of all. When GB arrived on the movie scene, all these fansites formed, worshiping him and gave him license to do whatever. He could burp, ****, swear, act like a jackass and a half and legions of squealing women would scream “He’s hilarious!” He ate it up (along with the donuts.) Now there seems to be a growing army of critics who are going to make him shape up or ship out. Personally, I LIKE Hugh Jackman. He seems a decent soul (of, God, do I dare mention that word?), a married man, talented actor and singer, a father, and an apparently disciplined hunk.
Do we need frat boy fat boys? Noooooo.
Young ladies, hear me out. I am old enough to have been around. I’;ve slept with a few. I read that Warren Beatty is rumored to have f***d 13,000 women. Someone challenged that figure, saying that even if he started at 15 and f**d a different woman every day until the age he is now, he couldn’t have done 13,000. And he did get married finally. Would his wife have tolerated this? I think not.
I see young women pass up sterling guys, mooning,” He’s too nice. I like bad boys,”
Well, let me tell ya girls, bad boys are mostly full of sh*t. That’s why they act bad, to cover their inadequacies. Some of them have a hard time geting it up. When I was in school, we girls used to say, “:A hard man is good to tind.” Swap a couple words to the original saying and think on that. Well, WE thought it was funny in our youth. JOKE! Lights! Bells! Lighten up! Just don’t buy the farm without a thorough look at the land.

long time observer @ 01/07/2010 at 2:10 am

It’s not that anyone is surprised at Gerry’s antics, misogyny etc. It seems to me that every time he’s called out on it people will react according to their beliefs. If someone thinks it’s ok that a guy acts like Gerry, then they say it’s no big deal. If others think it’s ridiculous for any man to behave that way, they say so.
Personally, I think some of Gerry’s harshest critics would be his best friends, so to speak. He should listen to them, take correction and then he wouldn’t be the topic of these kinds of articles and discussions.
“`
The print press coverage of him has changed in the past 7-8 months and not for the better. If all press is good press then it doesn’t matter. Though it appears Gerry doesn’t like negative things (preseved or real) said about him. He said in an interview that he’s trying to let go of the stuff he can’t control, i.e, what the press makes up. He should work just as hard at controlling himself.
It’s a shame no one warned him years ago that if he became a star his past would come back to haunt him. I bet this is only the beginning.

curious cat @ 01/07/2010 at 2:35 am

# long time observer. You sound like the voice of wisdom. Especially about his harshest criticts being his best friends. Nobody would bother commenting if we didn’t care. It;’s not just ihis past, Some of us don;t know that much about his past. it’s his continuing adolescent nonsense that puzzles. Are you a journalist Who are you? You sound like an insider on GB but a newcomer to the thread.

The word is that Gerry’s flatulence repairs holes in the ozone layer and is curbing global warming. It’s true. Look how cold it is in 90% of the country. I can’t wait until they capture the windpower from his flapping his gums. We could power Las Vegas for years.

It’s part of the stimulus package. See page 1214, section IV, article B.

Tony Curran is my favorite Scottish actor. It’s a shame he doesn’t get bigger parts but let’s be honest here, by Hollywood standards(and you better believe that is what Hollywood really cares about), Tony is not conventionally good looking. Many wouldn’t find the red hair and super pale skin and the aquiline nose attractive. Tony Curran looks like George Meredith who posed for a painting by Henry Wallis known as the “The Death of Chatterton”. Tony Curran is the absolute portrait of a Celtsman. He would make a fantastic Baron Harkonnen pre-Bene Gesserit poisoning if ever the Dune House trilogy were made into movies.

It sounds like we have a bunch of wanna be “feminists” here and and they’ve got Ger in their sights. Modern day radical “feminists” are hypocrites. They want to be able to screw a guy after knowing him 5 minutes and then complain if he doesn’t buy them a big fancy dinner afterwards. They want to act just as ****** as they accuse guys like Gerard of being and then complain when they don’t feel “respected” afterwards. Here’s a clue: men don’t need dinner and a movie to get it hard, ladies. And perhaps women should be just a bit more discerning about a guy BEFORE they let him stick their d*ck in them. You wanted the right to be able to f*ck like a man and this is how men do it…they don’t need romance and a whole lot of foreplay…and if they don’t really like you or respect you after they stick it to you then they bounce; it’s just the way alot of them are and that’s why a woman should be more careful about who she sleeps with. It’s like women think if they sleep with a guy on the first date the man is obligated to have a relationship with them just because that’s what they want..

Ger is an American now @ 01/07/2010 at 5:04 am

In regards to Gerard’s weight gain, one can officially say that Gerard is truly an American now. LOL.

@Modern radical “feminists”: you obviously haven’t visited any of the feminist websites. maybe you should stop watching reality tv feminism and look at some of the great work young feminist are doing to help women’s advancement at work, getting flex hours for both men and women with children, better health care for the poor, and improving the quality of education in our inner city schools.
the press likes to publicize “stripper feminism ” because it sells and people like you buy it. do some homework before believing the crap fed to you by a desperate media.

And I don’t see how you think I “buy into” stripper feminism. I resent it. It makes it much harder on women, overall.

Absolutely, the press does push “stripper feminism”. And who does “stripper feminism” ultimately benefit? It benefits MEN. It’s sad how many of these young women buy into it, too. Alot of these young women are admiring the likes of Paris Hilton, Shanna Moakler, Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Tila Tequila, Tiger’s whoors, etc. for f*ck’s sake. It doesn’t help when you have someone like GLORIA ALLRED willing to represent stripper feminist’s like the ones that took up with Tiger Woods either. The fact remains, women are still not being realistic about the innate physiological, emotional and mental differences that exist between men and women.

Gerry and Tony didn’t go to school together. They met at the Scottish Youth Theatre when Gerry was 15. Here is the transcript of the interview GB gave during “Beowulf and Grendel” where he talked about it. The interview can be found on “Wrath of Gods” the documentary about “Beowulf”.
.
****************************************************************************
.
Gerry:
.
I’ve known Tony since I was 15 years old, since I walked into the Scottish Youth Theatre. He was sitting with this other guy who I had worked with when I was 12 years old in “Oliver”, the musical, in the King’s Theatre, and for some reason I get into fights with everybody in this. And I walked in at 15 and saw this guy sitting next to Tony and went “Oh God, he’s going to tell that guy about me fighting.” And sure enough he did! He went, “Watch him. He fights all the time.” And the three of us ended up becoming best friends! That was Ronnie McCann, not Rory McCann. And Tony and I have been friends for 19 years now.

@realdeal:

And also, I have no need to visit leftist feminist propaganda sites. Most feminists are leftists. I don’t advocate feminism as much as I advocate women understanding the differences between the genders and being realistic about them. Many feminists want women to be men, while seeking to emasculate and subjugate men. The fact is, women aren’t men and we will never be just like them and that’s a good thing because men can be base and animalistic. They have a predatorial drive; they are hunters. Men and women are hard wired differently.

@ang:

Gerard said himself in a interview that he used to beat up his friends and didn’t know why he did it..and then he said he got sick of doing that and went the opposite way..he is a person with ADHD…he sounds a lot like his father whom he has described before in interviews..

Whoops! Left part of the quote out:
.
“And I walked in at 15 and saw this guy sitting next to Tony who I didn’t know at that point and went “Oh God, he’s going to tell that guy about me fighting.””
.
Just to be clear, the “guy” who saw GB fighting in “Oliver” and was telling Tony about it was Ronnie McCann.

Hi Cora how are you ? Are you in Scotland ?

@ Alastair: Hi Hun! I’m a Canadian living in the U.S.

I saw Tony in a play with Alan Cumming. Both were really good. Tony seems to hang around with a group of Scottish actors who live and work in LA. I don’t think Gerry is one of them and none of Gerry’s friends he hangs about with in the US are Scottish

There’s another lovely part of the “Beowulf” interview where Gerry says that the crew of “Beowulf” absolutely fell in love with Tony Curran and Rory McCann because they were such characters.

These pics are going to be on the “Today” show this morning with a

discussion of the “double standard” regarding weight gain in Hollyweird.

@mslewis:

I didn’t like Timeline, but it was actually on the theaters. I know because I sae it with my father, lol. Anyways, wonder if Gerald ever looked anything like he did in 300..

curious cat @ 01/07/2010 at 8:24 am

I can’t stop laughing. Every time I turn away from this thread there is more funniness. Where did all the talk about feminism come from? And what the hell is stripper feminism? I think I can guess at that. I am starting to relate to Craig Ferguson, who says that at age 47, if he even KNOWS about something, it’s obviously not cool.
Craig Ferguson is one of my favorite people and the most interesting Scot on the horizon. What I want to know is why he can be so outrageous and yet never cross the line into rampant indecency, wherever that line is, but Burly Butler seems to blunder right over the line on a regular basis without even seeing it. GB needs to retain CF as an adviser on living in America.
Okay, here’s an interesting insight on the feminist revolution. There was a time not so very long ago, you young ‘uns, when women could not even get birth control devices from a doctor, like the Pill or a diaphragm, without showing a marriage license. True! Forget buying condoms at the drugstore to protect yourself. It was up to the man to do the right thing and supply the condoms if you were determined to be wicked. When women’s lib erupted in the 60s and 70s, it made men rethink a lot. I have interviewed some older men who told me things like, I was celibate for two years because I couldn’t believe how women would come on to me, acting as if they had a right to expect sex from me. Another man said he started asking himself, why should I give myself so cheaply? Hey, when the shoe’s on the other foot… Nobody of either gender likes to feel used, trashed and disrespected. hey, I wrote a book here, have to exit.
I sincerely doubt GB reads these posts but somebody in his camp surely does and His Royal Fatness is all over the Internet so I’m sure his trainers have the whips out.

Seriously, you’re wit and humour are just brilliant. Thanks for the laughs. Always appreciated.

@ anna
Too true. I have to say, just as I’m a bit scared of the adoration from some of Gerry’s camp, I’m just as scared but all the hate that come his way as well. Call me naïve, but I have a hard time understanding why someone would spend so much time and effort into making this dislike into something of a mission of “hey let’s destroy this motherfu-ker”
Unless they were one of the women he allegedly slept with and then said bye bye. But even still they should take the high road and spend their time and effort into more interesting things, no? maybe that’s just me then.
-
Thanks Stinky? Was it? Sorry, thread too long again-
Who posted the gawker article. I definitely understand where the guy who wrote it comes from. When the image you sell and don’t seem to have a problem with is “the hunk”, you do have sort of a responsibility with that. When has he ever played the non-hunkish-let’s make-all-the-ladies-want-him-type-of-role? Lara croft, Beowulf, 300, Rocknrolla, PSILY, Gamer, Ugly Truth, and even law abiding citizen… all fit the bill.
He went to spend Christmas in Aspen, NYE in NY and then jetted off to Barbados. We all know he’s a party boy and he’s probably making the most of this free time before he starts PR for upcoming movies and then starts filming. Good for him. But don’t come to me with the speech of “oh poor him, he’s chased by the paps and he just wants to chill cra-p”. Those are all “happening” places around this time with half of Hollywood flocking there. I don’t think Gerry boy is that naïve not to have known he’d be papped and even if he was in fact surprised, he should know better – especially his PR team who were probably taking a sh-t (AGAIN!). Call me shallow, but he shouldn’t have been photographed looking like that. It’s bad PR, it’s embarrassing for him. He can get back in shape and definitely will but these photos will NEVER go away.
-
I agree with Curious (waves XX) when she says Gerry probably doesn’t read our comments but his PR does. If they don’t they should. At the end of the day, this is his bread and butter. We’re the people getting the word out there, watching his films and buying (or not) what he sells. The fan sites and mighty fans will always be there for him whether he decides to start beating up kittens for a living or something of that nature. I don’t see how relevant that is. Just take a trip to one of their threads and check it for yourself. Once you decide to voice something on the controversial or more unflattering side, you get shut. I don’t see how that’s beneficial to him or even intelligent.

As far as the GQ article goes, whatever. He is what he is and I don’t see anything we haven’t heard of before. I actually think he’s hilarious most of the time when he doesn’t have that foot stuck way down his mouth. Maybe it’s the Scottish sense of humour that strikes close to home for me. I don’t think my moral standards are low because of it but hey, take ur pick.
-
On a final note – if you look back on the threads, and you don’t even have to go that way back, there weren’t half of the controversy and hateful comments there are now.
You would think that after a few years he would’ve learned a lesson or two but apparently not. I’m also with those who think he needs a new team. A lot of his career choices as of recently were absolutely dreadful and I still think there’s talent hidden under all that flabby gut. Whenever I watch The Jury, Beowulf, Dear Frankie and a lot of his early work, you can just see it. It’s quite obvious to me that it’s important for Gerard to be part of that Hollywood circle, to be accepted and recognized and maybe that explains some of these choices and even all of the papparazi field days around LA. That’s when a good management team should step in and say, hey, u know what – it’s not worth it in the long run, let’s sit down, choose some character-driven roles and make ur name among the respected crowd so then u can fu-k about around HW if u want cause u already have a good rep and it won’t hurt u as much. Guess not.
-
This is a crucial year for Butler. If he can survive the bounty pr crap and possible critical failure, I think he’ll be ok if he focus on his acting and not so much party hopping. Should be interesting to see.
Hello to all the regulars, especially ManLESSton, I always have a great time when you’re around girl. Hope u’re doing great.
Back to work now, sorry for the long post but hey ho, u could’ve skipped if u wanted. Lol
XX

OH NO!

Hunky vrs chunky on the Today Show.

This is getting ridic!

He is still the hottest man alive (okay, I may not get out much but I know what I like!)

Carry on…

Emma, I just love your posts. I totally agree with everything you said, so not much to add there. Those photos really will never go away and right now they’re talking about Butler on the today show here in the states.
HEY! BUTLER’S TEAM! WAKE UP DAMMIT!!!!!!!

@Emma: Really great post Emma – good that you are back! Totally agree

Well, it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. All is forgiven and he is still a lovable lug. Matt loves cupcakes too!

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/21/20100107/tuk-man-gets-genitals-stuck-in-pipe-6323e80.html
Apart from the Burly Butler’s state at the moment, this made me laugh!
Nothing to do with anything but helps the day along don’t you think

Again Agree @ 01/07/2010 at 10:26 am

@Emma: His PR and friend read here. If you read some of these posts carefully. You can figure out some of them. Some rumors hit too close to home and his peeps come out gunnin’ to put out fires. What they convey to Gerry maybe a different story. I wish Gerry had a more balanced advisors in his management team and friends also. Keep the course and focus on the body of work.

Hi Pr and media people I’m sure this blog is a fun read for you X

Yeah, Curious, I’m still LMAO at the direction this thread has taken.

Gerry Butler is the catalyst for all kinds of conversations…global warming, feminism and donuts to name a few….

Oy, you should seriously write scripts if you don’t already. I laugh at your posts until I can’t breathe.

EMMA! I’ve slipped on my ass so many times on the ice, I have a permanent residence in a snowbank.

Off to hell…err, I mean work.

Laters! XO

The “Today Show” discussion about Gerry’s pics was actually pretty good. They have a video of GB’s segment already available on their web site. I’m kind of shocked that these Bermuda pics made it all the way to a full segment on the “Today Show”. How embarrassing.

Leppardlady @ 01/07/2010 at 11:59 am

Wow! Check out all the snarky comments here about Gerard’s weightgain. I guess I am more than a fair-weather fan, because I can see pics like this and they still don’t change my perspective of him as an actor and a damn fine looking one at that. So he gained a little weight, who cares? It isn’t anything that most of us haven’t done over the holidays (hypocrite mean anything to you people??). I’m not talking about everyone here, because I have read some nice comments about Gerry here, these from true blue fans of his. For the record, I wouldn’t mind taking a dip with him in the water.

To Emma: Thanks for the post, it was very good. I think a lot of us here agree with what you had to say. please keep posting.
.
As for the pics, again, say what you will, but this really is embarassing for him but it’s good that the fannies are standing by so blindly, cause (oh he’s just human and enjoy himself). Wake up. This is hollywood. When u make it to the today show with the picture of ur chubby guts out, and a whole discussion on hw double standarts, that’s not good. It’s hard to comment and rationalize with them though. he SHOULD know better. These photos won’t change my likes for him but it’s nice to discuss without having to debate with blind adoration ppl.

Thank you Cora for the except from the B&G interview.

See how funny the words “I always get into fights” twisted into “picking fights” and then by faulty inference a bully by Anoyoumous. Anoyoumous you have lost your credibility a little here.

On Hoda and Kathy’s segment of Today…Piers is filling in and giving props to GB. Says they are “going out tonight” so perhaps he is back in NYC…not stalking…just reporting….hahahahahaha.

Well, back to work and the real world!

@nipm: he was joking, how can u get from that that he’s in ny? lol he’s probably in hiding with tim by his side shouting as he lifts weights.
the media is all over these photos, unbelievable. it won’t go away quickly.

cubedweller @ 01/07/2010 at 1:28 pm

@Emma: Great post, Emma – count me in as a fan of yours. Totally agree with everything. With the fame that he craved has come greater scrutiny. More and more Butler is being called out for his crudity, for his partying, and for his role choices. You are right – this will be a crucial year for him.
.
And thanks to Linky for the Today show link. I for one think it is great that the double standard about weight is being examined. I love how the female reporter pointed out that men have to gain a LOT more weight than women before they are held up to scrutiny. But there was Butler in the rogue’s gallery beside Crowe, Baldwin (you were right, Oy) Vince Vaughn and Val Kilmer. Not a comfortable place to be, but oh well. I’m still p!ssed at Butler for the remarks he made on the Leno show about women who have had children. I may never let him off the hook for that one.

@Modern radical “feminists”: ??? That was a bit off topic, imo… What are you talking about?

fanaticsfan @ 01/07/2010 at 1:51 pm

Ger’s pics made to the Today’s show. It won’t be long he will be the toast of every nighttime talk show. Oh God the lashes he will have to endure…from the tongues of the like of Letterman. God have mercy on this man!

Be careful Macbeth for that «Scottish Play» you`ve been throwing around wishing misfortune upon others might just come and bite your own ass.. Karma`s a *****.

You also have some serious issues…I suggest you find a good therapist..

Bethany Willis @ 01/07/2010 at 2:01 pm

I have been reading some rather unflattering comments about Gerard Butler here. As I have never posted here before, I felt it my duty to jump in and say something. I was in Barbados during the time that Gerard was there. I met him at one of the nightspots, and actually danced with him. He did not look at all like the pictures posted here, in fact, he is in good shape, not 300 shape, but then, who is. He is certainly not fat or flabby, and the pictures that are displayed here do not at all look like the man I met and danced with. He was extremely nice, there with some of his friends, cordial and friendly to everyone. He was not out of place in any way. And he looked quite good. I am in my fourth year of college at MIT, and I do a bit of modeling on the side, to help pay the bills. I’m sort of a late bloomer, at 27, so I’m no kid. I found him charming and an all-round nice guy. As far as his appearance goes, I think he pretty much had every female on the island wowed at how handsome he actually is in person, and his body is in good form. I think that the comments made here, and what I have seen on the Internet are very strange and unfounded. If you saw him in person, your minds would change.

lavender1960 @ 01/07/2010 at 2:02 pm

@Fritz:

Actually that is a compliment and testament to the man that he inspires such diversity of opinion and issues,

The Anniston Joile fans argue about Brad Pitt. Twilight fans probably argue about Team Jacob vs Team Edward and Robsten, together or broken up.

@Bethany Willis: The problem is that the people don’t see him in person so it doesn’t matter. How he’s photographed is how he’s gonna be seen and known to everyone. Hence all the talking on different mediums.

lavender1960 @ 01/07/2010 at 2:22 pm

@fanaticsfan:

Except didn’t Matt Lauer say why is this news? And he has a point.
In the down and dirty gossip world sure but does it compare to Kate Gosselin getting a weave or the fact all men are probably going to have their jewels fully groped going through airport security now thanks to exploding underwear boy.

Stinkylouise @ 01/07/2010 at 2:27 pm

It’s a shame his acting doesn’t inspire this much attention.LOL!

But Matt Lauer was right. GB is promoted as the “Scottish Hottie” and a ” Hollywood Hunk”. And if that’s how you’re going to sell him, then you better deliver the goods.If he takes a break from dieting and exercise then keep him away from the paps.His PR team f*cked up.Again.

The interesting thing said during ” Today Show” was about Hollywood being a competition of looks and not talent – probably more suitable subject to discuss than GB`s extra pounds- fat or not.
Unbelievable that someone finds that stupid ” look how fat he is” topic worth a discussion on TV.

Yank The Chain @ 01/07/2010 at 2:47 pm

Why Him?
Why is the Today Show soley focusing on him..There are alot of men in Hollywood that have let themselves go during the years? Look at Alec Baldwin?..John Travolta? and if you want an oldie …Marlon Brando?
I’ve met Gerry in person..and trust me he’s gorgeous in person..so he packed on afew pounds?..Don’t we all..You know what they say..People that live in glass houses…

lavender1960 @ 01/07/2010 at 2:51 pm

People thought GB looked annoyed at the pap taking his picture in Aspen. Well even I have to say, if you really wanted to go skiing and you wanted total privacy, I think there are probably thousands of ski resorts, in Western Canada and the US that are just as nice if not nicer, the night life is just as vibrant [translate plenty of hot young snowbunnies], the food is just as good, ha, and where there would not be a single pap in sight.

Barbados is a relatively small island so word would have spread like wildfire. All the beaches are public property so you can’t kept the locals off them. That is why they tell you not to go walking at night along the beach there.

I’ve met Gerry in person and thought he looked even worse than these pictures. I guess if you’re a fan you see what you want to see. If you’re not a fan, you see a regular person, not a God.

lavender1960 @ 01/07/2010 at 3:20 pm

And sometimes we ALL have our good days and our bad days, just saying.

I didn’t see a God..I saw an attractive person..After all …beauty is in the eyes of the beholder..I just bet some of you here are not at an ideal weight..I suppose pointing fingers makes you feel better about yourselves…sad…really…very sad..

God are we really going down this direction again? everyone who criticizes is a fat ass, those who think he’s ok are fannies, those who don’t are bullies…
give me a break

Yank The Chain @ 01/07/2010 at 3:34 pm

As I say..you point a finger and three are pointing back at you…

@Bethany Willis: Oh look – fan fiction!

@Yank The Chain: Trust me. The finger most are using isn’t pointed AT you.

LOL!!!!!! too right

Yank The Chain @ 01/07/2010 at 3:46 pm

I can only imagine…oy….You can also take that middle finger and shove up your a**…You are a disgusting, low class slug..

laughing girl @ 01/07/2010 at 3:59 pm

Oy…you are the shizznit!!!

@Yank The Chain: You mean like this guy?

http://celebrity-stuff.popsugar.com/916496

Your hypocrisy is showing darling.

Hey Bethany, thanks for telling us about your meeting with Gerry. I too think that the reaction to these photos are really exaggerated. Ok he is flabby but nowhere near fat. I think for some reason people are turning against him. First, the whole razzie stuff and then this? I mean it is true, why are they signaling him out when there are a lot of Hollywood actors who have let themselves go?

Norstromfan @ 01/07/2010 at 4:28 pm

http://www.seenit.co.uk/the-bounty-hunter-trailer/014847/

This looks like a new poster or someone’s basement version.

@sugar: let’s see darling
he’s shoved in our faces as hunky actor, pus*y eater extraodinaire, most of his roles are hunky-type characters and whenever there’s a piece about him, it’s always gorgeous actor, sexy Gerard.. don’t be fooled into thinking this is all the media and not his PR as well. So when the “300 guy” as he still is mostly known for to the masses shows up in bloody barbados where lots of celebs are, looking like that, people are gonna talk ok?
Has this turned into much of a bigger story than it should be? Sure. But when Jessica Simpson and Love Hewitt showed up looking chubby, they went through a whole lot more. In that sense, Butler should know better. He’s got an image to sell. What? You think he’s got a right to earn a few, especially around the holidays like any human being right? I do too. But don’t show up in Barbados around this time then. Wake up.

Oy.. again..
clapping!

Anna, two wrongs don’t make a right. The taunting that Jessica and Jennifer got were not fair and this is not fair either. I mean honestly the guy is nowhere near fat.

I agree with you though that he has focused so much of his PR on his looks.

http://justjared.buzznet.com/2010/01/07/rachel-zoe-bikini-in-st-barts/#comments

Compared to Rachel Zoe I will take Gerry’s fat a$$ any day.

These pix of Zoe are just the kind of antidote people need who think celebs like Gerry should be all thin all the time.

Yank The Chain @ 01/07/2010 at 4:40 pm

Your hypocrisy is showing darling. “oy”
..So is Yours…

Awwww…You can dish it out but you can’t take it…
Just What I thought :)

I didn’t say that I thought what those girls went through was ok and therefore it’s ok that he’s been getting the same press for it. I was just stating that this is what happens when u’re a high profile celebrity in Hollywood and because of that he should’ve known better. :)

curious cat @ 01/07/2010 at 4:54 pm

@bethany willis #670? I liked your comments. It’s good to know GB can be nice and well behaved in nightspots. There have been reports of his not so nice behavior in nightspots. I don’t doubt your eyewitness experience, but do have to say the old say, that one picture is worth 1,000 words. Those pix of him were not attractive, and I don’t think the paps Photoshopped him to make him look worse. No, he is not the worst blubberbutt on the planet by any means, and I feel a little sorry for hm getting all this ridicule, but he does look as if he isn’t taking care of himself. For a movie star stud, that’s a career image problem. And no, this is not the news story of the year, but it’s January, the month when half the U.S. population makes resolutions to lose weight and get in better, healthier shape. So those of us who need to shed a few, and I’m one of ‘em, I hate to admit, can get going on it and hope GB will set a shining example. I was in denial, trying to ignore the fact that I was getting bigger, hell, my clothes are just shrinking, Until I got on the scale and saw the damage in black and white. No fancy, expensive diet programs are needed. It’s just a matter of burning more calories than you take in. Eat lots of veggies and fruits, cut the fats and starches, exercise in whatever ways you enjoy and can stick with, let the muscle build and the fat come off.
I plan to start a new career as a model right soon, y’all. :)

@Norstromfan: I hope that “Taking your ex-wife to jail…best job ever” is not the real tagline for the film. It’s not funny. A woman produced this film and if that’s the tagline, she needs to wake up and smell the misogyny. It’s plays to men who have resentment toward women, like women deserve to be punished.

If you don’t agree, what about, “Making your ex-husband chase you and putting him in danger…best job ever?” That’s just as insulting toward men.

I really hope that isn’t their campaign.

LessontoGB @ 01/07/2010 at 5:00 pm

Are people upset that he does not look like that 300 body or that he looks like a normal person? Does all the movies he make call for that kind of body? He had his shirt on in many beach pap photos before. Maybe over similar concerns (maybe not this of this kind of backlash). He always mentioned that people did not believe in person he was the same guy in 300. Gerry, let them keep guessing and you do what you need to do. Don’t feel insecure. Concentrate on quality this year. Be realistic . . . more discipline and just roll this stuff off your back.

Scarecrowe @ 01/07/2010 at 5:03 pm

Sugar I agree with you for once.

Two wrong don’t make one right. Bashing GB will only intensify the celeb weight issue, which has an impact on how young girls (even boys these days) view themselves and effect adversely their self esteem.

@sugar: Have you seen the sideview photos? He’s fat. He’s not morbidly obese, but he will be well on his way if he keeps at it.

I think it’s great these photos were released. Perhaps people will re-examine the double standard and expectations that are placed on one gender vs. the other, which results in people with eating disorders and looking like Rachel Zoe (not to mention dying). If Gerry’s people were smart, they’d use this as an opportunity to clean up his misogynistic image a little. Whether or not they could convince him to do that is doubtful.

@LessontoGB: “more discipline and just roll this stuff off your back.”

You’re making the jokes too easy.

@oy: And that image was created by whom? You?

Gerard butler is shown with a few extra pounds and the media and fans circle around him like sharks. Pics of him hit the headlines with titles like; “From Hunk to Chunk”…and the snarkfest begins. And people wonder why so many celebs starve themselves to the such extremes. I feel very bad for this young woman. Her body image has been warped by Hollywood’s ridiculous standards of beauty.

Have you seen this?

lavender1960 @ 01/07/2010 at 5:56 pm

Brad Pitt’s PR people must be slacking too, he looks like a reject from ZZ top lately.

On and Johnny Depp on People Choice Awards – Johnny, shampoo, it’s cheap.

@Wonder: Yes. I created it. I control all the media and the films released. I’m the one responsible for publicizing him to the public. I’m the one who demanded he take the roles taking his shirt off and mooning us in every film. I’m the one who told him to brag that he loves taking his clothing off in films and showing his ass. I told him to tell the world he was a bad boy who liked threesomes. I’m the one who insisted he chase models all over the globe and establish himself as the new Hollywood lothario. Yes. It was me. I confess. It was all my dastardly plan. Mwuhahahaha

Should I confess to stuffing him full of french fries and pasta and calling the tabloids to take fatty pictures of him too? Would that soothe the pain you’re feeling about Gerry being busted for not living up to the image he created? You fans are really smarting over this. I can’t wait until he gets married. The suicide rates will be astounding and there will be a run on Xanax like they never imagined.

Swannie, the Zoe photo has already been posted. Please do keep up the deflection campaign. It’s not working, but it proves the point that you should be on his payroll.

Somehow I doubt Gerry cares as much about all this flap as his fans do.

@lavender1960: Very true. Johnny needs to wash that hair and Brad needs to shave and lose the rasta hat. But this thread isn’t about them.

It was on The Today Show, ladies. You can’t cover this up for him. It’s just a matter of time before the late night comedians jump on it (if they think anyone knows who Gerry is). All the deflection tactics in the world can’t put this genie back in the bottle.

Gerry is a big boy. He can handle this. The more you try to mommy him, the more pathetic you make him look. Think about it. If you keep talking about it, shows like The Today Show see how many comments are made about this subject, so they think a lot of people consider it a hot topic and they cover it. If you shut up, it goes away much quicker. The reason many websites have posted the photos is because they know (JJ sure does) that you’re going to come in swarms to defend him and yap up about how wonderful he is. They’re making money and suddenly it becomes a story others cover. Those photos might not have gotten as much play if the gossip sites didn’t have you to count on.

Well done.

lavender1960 @ 01/07/2010 at 6:11 pm

My point is maybe people are too worried for nothing. Pitt and Depp also have made careers on the hunk factor. I would say Depp is the better real actor over Pitt – never been a big fan of Pitt frankly but they and their PR people don’t seem too concerned. Off screen Depp has been looking like a homeless guy for years.

Yank The Chain @ 01/07/2010 at 6:11 pm

Oy…You really like to be the center of attention..You must be a very lonely unhappy person..

As for Gerry..I hope he does find someone to share his life with..No skin off my nose..I just enjoy watching his movies etc..It’s this “He’s too thin”..”He’s too fat” that is sooooo stupid..In the grand scheme of things..
Who f*ckin cares..Oh Yeah..Oy cares..she’s ALWAYS on here..

@lavender1960: the thing is Lavender, that Depp and Pitt have been around for ages, tackled a lot of different roles and proven to everyone that they’re very very talented. I think Butler’s got loads of it as well, otherwise I wouldn’t bother paying attention to him, but he doesn’t have the street cred both of these men u mentioned do. Johnny especially, has so much of this street cred, that he could go around naked, drunk and humming a britney song and most ppl would still find him cool.

JewelryMaker @ 01/07/2010 at 6:18 pm

Oh, when can we get a new thread and a new topic….puhleese, JJ. What more can be said at this point?

wondering @ 01/07/2010 at 6:20 pm

What’s the matter oy, did you get kicked off a fan site in some other life? You seem to have an unusual amount of venom for Gerry’s fans. There must be some reason. I absolutely loath Brad Pitt, but I could care less what his fans say or think and I never visit anything with his name on it. What is the joy, oy, of bashing Butler’s fans?

@lavender1960: And one more thing.. my main worry, as of many people here, isn’t if he’s looking out of shape. If u read the thread, u’ll see.. most of us are just very disappointed with the choices he’s made this past couple years. I’m sure a lot of you would love to see him play juicier roles that could showcase his talentas well, instead of this bounty cra-p for instance. I’m sorry, say what you will, but this thing is gonna be a critical disaster. It sort of is already if you have a look around blogs and sites of movie people. To be honest that makes sad, because I like the man and want to see him do well. I just don’t cover my eyes and ears whenever he says or does things I don’t agree with or understand.

@oy: Well, I`ll tell you before I commit one- that will be the day after The Wedding. Just look for a sign…

By the way,which of those terrible doings you listed makes him a misogynist.

As for threesomes- that was actually a joke. Mwuhahahaha. Or you only understand your own?

Yank The Chain @ 01/07/2010 at 6:27 pm

Even your own words are a
contradiction…

** Give YOURSELF a hand as well Oy..You stirred it up as well …

Funnyanyone? @ 01/07/2010 at 6:31 pm

It’s laughable that all of a sudden Oy makes him/herself the spokesperson for the starved actresses protesting the injustice of the double standards. Oy you are an opportunist and a hypocrite to say the least.

For someone constantly making fun of GB’s “crudeness”, Oy’s mouth, in our case, his/her typing fingers have typed and posted paragraphs after paragraphs of filth and venom towards not only GB but also other posters. Compared to GB, Oy is cancer to GB’s common cold.

Oy is a schoolyard bully. It’s best just not to read her spewing.

@Yank The Chain: oh give it a rest already, christ.. you sound like a broken record. okay okay, we get it. geez… passive agressive much? it’s not like she’s talking about your mother, take a chill pill.. people are gonna have different opinions on Gerry. Why do u take so personally when someone makes a joke about him? relax!
most people here adore the man, we’re just not blind to everything he does and when we want to criticize we do so, because this is a public thread, not a fan site full of moderators. Oy is a lot of fun and maybe goes a bit too far every now and then but everybody has a laugh all the same. you should too. If butler makes fun of himself of all the time, what’s the harm here? This thread has gone to the gutter. sigh

Yank The Chain @ 01/07/2010 at 6:41 pm

Not taking anything personal Joy..Just dishing out what Oy loves to do… and you’re right..this is a public message board..People are entitled to their opinion …like yours..and mine… and Funnyanyone..I agree..

People who post insults about an actor’s or actresses weight gain are feeding into Hollywood’s warped standard of beauty. I expect some of young actresses actors read the comments posted about them on entertainment sites, and they are certainly exposed to insults from the mainstream entertainment media if they dare to gain a few lbs.

Even before the internet, Karen Carpenter was subjected to “fat and chubby” comments from the media, and she literally starved herself to death. I’d much rather see Gerry or any other celeb (male or female) with a few extra “holiday” lbs than the ultra skinny trend Hollywood puts forth as beauty.

Oh good gawd. I’m with JewelryMaker. JJ needs to get another Butler thread. With nothing more to say on the current subject, people are turning on each other here.

Gerry, please, come out in public again and do something new and controversial! This has run its course.

@Yank The Chain: The Today Show really ruined your day, didn’t it. These photos were a hard enough blow for you, but now they were aired on national TV. There was no delete button you could hit to get them removed from the public glare. Your world must be pretty painful right now.

Anna, well said. From the beginning Johnny fought the hunk image that he was branded with. He took tiny roles in films to build his cred as an actor when everyone thought he was throwing his career away. Pitt still struggles to be taken seriously because he let the hunk thing go too long. He still has been in a lot of great films that will stand the test of time. Neither of them were known as lotharios, but maintained long term relationships. Neither of them has let themselves get out of shape, either. If you package yourself in a certain way, you can’t be surprised or disappointed when you change the packaging and people find the product unappealing.

I just watched The Today Show clip which was as sympathetic to Gerry as could be. You fans are having a fit about that? It’s a great example of how most of you are incapable of objectivity.

@wondering: I like making fun of you because you’re clearly insane.

@Swansong: Swansong, this is not just in movie making world that happens. We just have to look around to see what happens. Our society has been obsessed about image for a long time and Hollywood a lot of the times is a about image, always has been and always will be, especially now. I’m not saying this is something i agree with, but it is what it is. A lot of people here didn’t criticize butler’s weight gain per se, but more the fact that he shouldn’t have let himself be photographed like that. If he and his team were more careful, none of this sh!t would be happening. He’d be back on the training, showing up all handsome in a suit and all would be good. So is the life of a celebrity. Everyone knows how it works, including Mr. Butler.

@anna: Anna please stop trying to reason with them. You seem intelligent and balanced, and sane. you’ve noticed, they’re ignoring you and trying desperately to shut me up. The more they try, the more fun taunting them becomes.

@Wonder: It wasn’t a joke. Keep believing it if you want to.

He is considered a misogynist by many people in the industry and his own big mouth has backed up the rep. If as a fan you don’t want to believe it, good for you.

Oy’s comment to me
The Today Show really ruined your day, didn’t it. These photos were a hard enough blow for you, but now they were aired on national TV. There was no delete button you could hit to get them removed from the public glare. Your world must be pretty painful right now.

No..You got all wrong Oy…Actually..I was happy to see an actor gain afew pounds…shows that he is human like the rest of us..You are the one that has the problem and is turning tables…As a matter of fact, I’m going out to have a nice dinner tonight..I’ll toast a glass to you Oy..Maybe one day..you’ll see yourself for who you really are..Cheers

on that note I’m off, I’ve fried my brain already, with some people it’s like trying to talk to a wall. new thread please. everything’s been said here, you’re right Jewelry. Gonna go read a book. Some of u should too. bye now.

Oy might not be quite so offensive to some, including me, if she/he would just let a few posters’ opinions that she doesn’t agree with go by without trying to have the last word in every argument. What a hate-filled human being.

Thank you JJ for posting pictures of Rachel Zoe.

Her sickly thinness is a sober reminder just how ridiculous all these talks about Butler’s so-called chubbiness are. Putting Zoe’s and Butler’s pictures side by side Butler is the picture of health of a 40 year old man.

@oy: lol yeah… i never learn.

@Yank The Chain: Finally she is starting to catch on. I didn’t contradict myself.

It’s okay. We’ll wait until you figure it out.

Yank The Chain @ 01/07/2010 at 7:04 pm

Oy..You must have alot of time to waste…and on one man..must be exhausting for you..I’ve done my time here..I’ve got better things to do..Keep on with the contradictions and enjoying yourself post…mostly insulting everyone else..

As for this thread..Yeah..it’s getting old..but no worries..Oy will Keep it running!!

@Joy: They’re calling them over from the fansites to build the defenses. They take this all very seriously. It’s serious business.

Gerry is probably enjoying a threesome with some Barbadian beauties right now and hasn’t given a second thought to all this flap over his flab. They think it’s the end of the world.

Yank The Chain @ 01/07/2010 at 7:09 pm

oh and by the way Oy..

Did I yank your poor little chain..

@Swansong: Spoken like a true fat person.

lol I know.. but hey.. don’t talk about threesomes. We know he was joking but if WE joke about it, it’s wrong. The phantom of the opera would never take part in one. He’s too pure and his soul is too beautiful. word.

@oy: @oy: I am not a fan at all, I just saw some few of his movies. I think the guy is funny and different from anyone else in Hollywood.

Even if he is sleeping around with every pretty girl- that`s not a big crime, or? A lot of men do.

And to be considered a misogynist is not the same as to be one. I have never heard him talk disrespectful about women- but then, of course, I have not seen all interviews…

@Yank The Chain: Didn’t you say you had better things to do and were going away? Doesn’t that make you a hypocrite because you’re still here?

Jewelry/Joy, yes we need a new thread. I’ll hope for one of Gerry with his arms around two very skinny women. That would be fun. It would be a smart way for him to do a comeback after the chub photos.

Anna, my sympathies in your brave effort. Do what I do. Bat them around like cat toys. They seem to like it because keep coming back for more, like some Pavlovian response.

@Wonder: that’s exactly why so many of us are attracted to him, wonder. Whether he’s a misogynist or not, I don’t believe he is. It doesn’t help that women are always a big subject when it comes to the butler but hey… what pis*es a lot of people off here are the mighty fans who think it’s their right and mission in life to defend the guy, especially here, when no one could give a cr*p. we like talking and discussing his career, his ways, what he’s been up to, etc.. and not just praise or defend.
When the fannies come in a bundle to try and complete their mission, they always fail because they’ll leave, and the regulars who are true fans and people full of insights and cool things to say, like Emma, Cube, ManLESSton, Fritz, Curious and lot others, will stick around. This thread is getting a little old though. A lot has been said already without the over protecting ones or total bullies showing up, so no problem.

@oy: Sorry to disappoint you but ” treesome” was meant as a joke.
Personally, I don´t have a problem with treesomes as long as all tree enjoy it.

I’ve been reported again.

@Bethany Willis: Thanks for your post. It’s nice to hear GB was behaving in the club, he doesn’t always do that.
He must have been wearing baggy clothes and you had a drink or two. There’s no other way his body could look good. His face tho, smile and eyes, are always charming and can distract from everything else.

Yank The Chain @ 01/07/2010 at 7:25 pm

Awww Yes!! Oy’s keeping the thread going..and going..and
going..Just like I thought he/she would..

Yes, Oy..I’m really leaving now…You can go on insulting people as you were earlier…You must like that word..hypocrite…It fits you well :)

So long Loser..

boo hoo Gerry @ 01/07/2010 at 7:26 pm

@Swansong: and exactly what culpability does a shallow guy like Gerry Butler have SWANSONG? This putz, Gerry, would not be caught dead with a woman of healthy weight and YOU know it – yet you try and defend HIS WEIGHT GAIN and seek forbearance for his condition. You are such a FLACK for this guy you have no objectivity at all. Your sympathy is directed at the guy who is contributes to this ridiculous body image issue.
