Gerard Butler Cleared of Battery Charge

Gerard Butler Cleared of Battery Charge

Gerard Butler steps out of the Roger Room lounge in Los Angeles on Thursday (January 7) after celebrating dropped battery charges against him.

The 40-year-old Bounty Hunter actor was charged with a misdemeanor battery charge due to a scuffle with a photographer at the RocknRolla premiere party back in October of 2008. Gerry completed the necessary community service to clear his name. If he had been convicted, he would have faced up to six months in jail.

    Shouldn’t it be Thu Jan 7 Jared? Assuming this was yesterday and not Dec 7

  • Hurly Burly

    Why does he look like he slept in these clothes (for weeks!) LOL
    Get a trainer and a STYLIST – pink shorts and these Ewwww clothes in one week! Dry wretching now

  • LOL

    Back in his natural habitat!

  • Loosingweight…

    Looks like he’s already loosing the weight. Look at his neck and chin. The dude is definitely on some major diet and work-out regime. I hope he doesn’t go to the extreme. I have the feeling he doesn’t really know moderation. From those pics you couldn’t even tell that he had a few extra pounds.
    Yes, he needs a new stylist! So true! The clothes aren’t the worst we’ve seen but I hate that short, short hair on him. He’d look so much better and younger with a bit longer hair. And he has great hair, why doesn’t he show it off????
    Yep…@LOL…. he’s definitely back in his hunting grounds ;-)

  • http://jenardison jenardison

    we must recognize that his girlfriend has the help she has pushed for the law that he not be prosecuted

  • jane

    He looks terrifice! As always. And never has a mean word to say about anybody. How refreshing!

  • Cora

    @Loosingweight…: I don’t know what you’re looking at luv, but I can definitely still see the Bermuda weight on him. If you look at all the pics, there are several where he’s still looking very tubby — which is why he’s wearing such baggy clothes.
    Also it’s not likely he would have lost much weight no matter how he tried in just a few days.
    And before the fangirls have a meltdown and feel the need to call me evil, I’m a fan of Gerry’s. I’m just giving an honest description of what I see in these photos. He’s still carrying the weight and trying to cover it with baggy clothes. I’m sure he’ll be in better form by the time the GG’s roll around but given the 4 day time frame since the last pics it’s just not realistic that we’ll be seeing much of a change yet. And to me that’s confirmed by what I see in these photos.

  • gertie

    Wow. Love the jacket and the guy inside it..

  • gerijeffers

    And to think I once wanted to do him.

  • bbcnews

    Luv you Ger!

  • Arrest him for his illegal moobs

  • alone again?

    Unless he stashes his club hook-up away somewhere, maybe across the street?

  • ManLESSton, I likely

    ITAWY. It will take more than a couple of weeks for Gerry to get in shape. Clothing can disguise a lot and your take on the baggy clothes is totally on. In Dubai it looked like his shirt was too tight and now we have better insight to how long this weight gain has been going on since it had to start well before that. *thumbs up*
    Glad to see he is not camera shy. Personally, if the world had gotten to see my worst pic I would still be hiding from embarrassment. It just adds a little weight to my narcissist theory of Gerry (pun intended).

  • Stinkylouise

    Well that was a short vacation.
    He probably couldn’t stand being away from the cameras and there is no way he would be photographed on the beach again.LOL!
    He’ll probably be “spanxed” for the GG’s.

  • cubedweller

    Are those HAND PRINTS on the front of his shirt??? It looks like someone did a down dog on his chest – LOL!
    The jacket is repulsive, and the jeans are hideous. OK I’m leaving now before the phangurl herd comes racing in to defend their “beautiful boy”.
    Waves to Stinky, ManLESS and Cora – love you guys.

  • Fritz

    Since the GG’s aren’t until the seventeenth, is it possible he’s staying in one city for a whole nine days? Wow! LOL!

    Oh…and MORNING, JJ’ers! *waves*

  • cubedweller

    @Fritz: Daily club pics – oh the fun we’ll have.

  • Emma

    Hello darling girls! Morning to you.
    Of course he couldn’t stay away for long lol the guy comes back from barbados and is back for action already. Having said that, I agree with ManLESSton. Good for him for not being camera shy after all that weight debacle, so in that sense, party up G! It’s awards season anyway, the celebs are all up for it.
    I will not comment on his choice of clothes, as many of you know, I’m not a fan of Gerry’s style and because I’m in a very good mood today, I won’t say anything. ok maybe just one thing… argh lol forgive? XX
    Love you G.
    WAVING back!!! XXXX

  • Stinkylouise

    Hey guys! Waving back……….!
    I see the phangurls invaded the other thread.LOL!

  • anna

    Gerry being Gerry lol hope the link works
    Spring is also the time for her other motion picture to come out of the gate. “The Bounty Hunter” puts Hogan in the same movie as hot star Gerard Butler and A-lister Jennifer Aniston.

    Hogan spent three weeks filming in Brooklyn, playing a bail bonds company president who hires Butler’s bounty hunter to bring in Aniston.

    “I have big hair, bright nails and a New York accent,” she reports in a phone interview. No auditioning was necessary since she had worked for the main producer on her first film, “The Paper,” and for director Andy Tennant on “Fools Rush In.”

    Courtesy of Butler, she received a big bonus, and it wasn’t money. When her character presents the down-and-out bounty hunter with his $5,000 check for completing the job, he grabs her and kisses her.

    The actress says the kiss was terrific, adding that Butler is “a great guy.”

  • anna

    if I’m not mistaken I actually remember seeing a photo of this, among all those pap shots back from the bounty set. I can’t be ars-ed to look for them but I’m sure there is one. there u go. how kind of him lol love this man

  • atrium

    Mm, Gerry, Whwre’s Your Belly?)

  • I’ll Bite

    @cubedweller: Not a fangurl, but I have to disagree about the jacket. I like it on him – a good cut, a good color. It’s the shirt/sweather thingy that doesn’t work.

  • An ode to Gb’s lost abs

    From Betty Confidencial
    What has happened to you, Gerard Butler,
    You’re now a fatty, you’ve lost your luster.
    We see you’re in Barbados, perhaps on vacation,
    That’s no excuse, we demand an explanation.
    We fell in love with your Spartan physique,
    In our knees you made us all weak.
    We watched 300 for your ripped abdominal
    You were nearly naked, your ass looked phenomenal.
    We’re also not a fan of these shorts that are pink,
    Your wardrobe selections we suggest you rethink.
    You’re all gross, looking blubbery and bloated
    You’re off our list of hotties, you’ve been demoted.
    We don’t mean to whine but we must complain,
    You need a gym, Weight Watchers or Jack LaLane.
    You fought the paparazzi, lost your looks and all your muscle,
    You remind us of a guy, last name Crowe, first name Russell.
    On criminal charges of assault you were acquitted,
    Now please put on a shirt, not one that is fitted.
    Your new appearance is beyond uncouth,
    Sorry, Gerry, that’s just that’s the ugly truth.
    Betty’s Poet Laureate spends more time than she’d like to admit reclining on her sofa, eating grapes and writing love sonnets to Jon Stewart.

  • @922

    A straight man would not wear that jacket.

  • Elain

    He’s looking good. I really like that jacket, too. I see JJ found some lookalike jeans a shirt, but not the jacket … yet anyway.

  • he really

    loves having his picture taken. What a ham.

  • gotta be kidding

    he never dresses nice when he goes to a club – never!

  • gotta be kidding

    i’ve neer seen a pic of him coming out of a club, ever dressed nice -never!

  • sugar

    He looks woooooooonderfulllllllll!!!

  • amen

    So darn funny Betty ! Thanks for closing out the first week of the year with such verve. There are some clever people on these JJ boards…I salute you !

  • Ger’s belly analyst

    I saw some clips from the British TV show “lucy Sullivan is getting married” and found even by then when Gerard was only about just under 30 he got a round belly. He was so gorgeous in it. Some people are just born with a barrel belly and I think Gerard is one of those. They tend to have this stomach area more prominent just above the navel area to under the rib cage. With a few extra lbs now Gerard’s is even rounder and more obvious.

  • @amen and #32

    I agree amen. Despite the differences the GB posters have, most of the GB posters are funny, fun, intelligent and insightful. This says something about the man they are all attracted to (admitted or not we won’t be here if we are not in some perverse way attracted to the man)

  • leah

    I hope he’s not thinking “I wonder if he’ll sell me that jacket.”

  • Elain

    Losingweight: I think his face looks thinner, too. Compare the photo outside the club this week with the closeup one in Aspen. Chin and cheeks look smaller in the LA shots. Can’t say about the bod, cause we can’t see ‘underneath his clothes,’ tho I’d like to.

  • fat boy

    he looks thinner in the face because he has a tan

  • Peenis

    Ew he looks like crap. Well well well, there he is out. LOL

  • Prettypie

    @jenardison: Huh? What do you mean? What girlfriend?

  • nipm

    Umm, who the heck did he piss off? TMZ is officially dead to me! Old pix just to ride a bandwagon? That’s okay, he will come out on top…no worries. We got your back babe, even when it seems we are ragging on ya! I guess we just care…good, bad, and snarky! You da man!

  • shut up stop starting rumors


    oh god lay off wil ya?? he’s single. that girl works for him.
    buzz off.

  • nipm

    @Ger’s belly analyst: To Scotland and Back (episode 6-1/2)…so telling…just being himself or being brilliant. The look on his face and in his eyes right before he tries to sneak out…priceless! The phone booth conversation….time to pass himself around some more and on to the next one….like he just can’t help the nature of the beast…oh Gus…in my real world your name was Carreras.

  • Bad Friends

    Where are Ariel and Nick?? or are they just being bad friends??
    Gerry is not gay, he just dates(pays) women(boring model types) who don’t (won’t) talk.

  • Real NYC Model (Pakistani)

    Haha you dumb chicks think Gerry gives a rat’s ass what you think?
    He dates hot girls who have hotter bodies none of you fat lazy slobs!
    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…just because the girls he is rumored to be with dont say anything, it doesnt mean it never went on!! It just means the girls don’t want the publicity! LOL The only woman who tried to capitalize on having known gerry was that arcade girl! That is why I think that she was a hack one off.
    The others, even the rumored ones, don’t say anything and you know theyve been asked PLEASE. Their silence speaks volumes to me.
    If they wanted the PR theyd be talking right now!
    He is single and loving life why dont you phan phatso’s like Kirstie Alley and Sugar (lol) dry up and go suck a donkey butt.

  • Princess

    @Real NYC Model (Pakistani): Wow, are you pathetic or what?

  • duh

    @Real NYC Model (Pakistani): “go suck a donkey butt”

    Many of them are trying, but Gerry won’t cooperate.

  • Como

    Why does he always look like he got dressed by dumpster diving? Baby bibs have less stains than his clothing. He was doing so much better there for a while. Are these his fat clothes and that’s why he’s back to wearing the ugly stuff?

    Gerard please get a stylist or put your ego aside and buy some new clothes in a larger size. It looks worse to dress badly, especially after the tv shows showed your beach belly to the world. Everyone looks better when they dress well.

  • Como

    What did Gerry do for community service?

  • gamerdatingsite

    He is so good looking

  • Me

    Since I seem to have been banned from Gals, I want to use JJ as a place to thank Scotsmanstuart for posting the Lucy Sullivan episodes. I’ve been waiting for a chance to see them for so long. Half-way through the series with you, Stuart. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Butler sure was great in his portrayal of that real jerk, Gus. But OMG, he was so gorgeous on the outside, the inside was almost forgiveable. Note I said almost.
