The 40-year-old Scottish actor also attended the after party at the Bowery Hotel and caught up with actor Adrien Brody! Gerry and Adrien were both in the film Harrison’s Flowers in 2000.

Gerry is gearing up for Machine Gun Preacher, the story of a former drug dealer who finds God and fights for Sudanese children who have been kidnapped and mistreated. With any luck, filming will begin later this year, according to

    I like Butler but his new movie The Bounty looks like shi.t— but The Machine Gun preacher sounds interesting

  • OB

    @Jeff: I absolutely agree with you.

  • hellgirl

    He looks gerrylicious as always! Except the jeans. Honey, pls, loose those jeans, it´s not working for you! The BH looks interesting, although I don´t feel the chemistry between them , like the one was between him and K.Heigl. But who knows…..

  • hellgirl

    I hope he will do The Machine Gun Preacher.

  • where did you get that hat

    there is no excuse in the world for that hat????? I don’t care how cold it is, and whats with the digusting jeans? some of the pics he seems to have split something too. did he get them out of the trash? WTF or do your laundry.

  • back in NY

    Back in NY – watch out ladies!


    Where is Jennifer.. I thought they were together?

  • VNY

    Woot! Gerard AND Adrian! Thanks JJ!
    I hope Gerard starts doing some real movies soon – this romcom stuff is just…ugh.

  • Cora

    Well, at least he’s not orange anymore.

  • Stinkylouise

    He’s back home where he belongs. Hip deep in models.Jennifer who?

  • nathalie

    Oh there he is, as far away from JA as possible without leaving the country ha ha. This man needs someone that will tell him to check his pants for stains if he’s gonna put on pants that have been lying on the bedroom floor for months, and if it really is that cold that you need a hat find a decent one for god sakes or at least decide between a baseball cap and a knit hat because this cross/hybrid thing is not working! If you are standing next to Adrian Brody and I don’t notice his nose because your dirty jeans are blinding me, it’s not a good sign.

  • Lilly

    he looks old & like crap

  • Ladida

    I thought he’s from scotland…so he’s not home lol

  • Fly on the Wall

    jj-you allow ads, now?

  • Hisboyfriend

    Back in NY with his bf.

  • whodunit>

    He’s going to ruin his career with The Bounty Hunter—he’s already did The Ugly Truth which was bad as well—-hopefully his career will recover after The BHnter comes out.

  • hip deep

    #10 – In male models.

  • Stinkylouise

    @Ladida – He hasn’t lived in Scotland for years. I think home is where the models are.LOL!

  • @#18

    home is where fryguy is and all the male models.

  • cubedweller

    Gerry, your grama called – she wants her hat back.

  • Darlin’

    Lookin’ mighty fine, Mr. Butler. Gorgeous gorgeous man. He doesn’t have to dress up to look beautiful. Damn I can’t get enough of him.

  • cubedweller

    @ Giggles: Thanks for all the pics on the last thread. Harrison Ford looks great. He knows how to dress for an event.

  • Hatfitter

    Is this how “the man of the moment” is dressed?

    Questionable fashion choices aside, one has to give him the credit for knowing the importance of networking in the film business, letting other actors, directors, producers and other insiders know him better on a personal level. Film openings, industry parties, after-parties are chances to meet people and networking and it’s not all just for partying per se. Ger boy has some good business sense here. If only he got some good sense for picking good scripts…

  • arfara

    he and jennifer aniston will be such a great couple,i really hope that they will be together..brad pitt is a idiot and kreten:)!!!!

  • Stupid Hat

    jeez, Gerry!

  • Jill

    arfara @ 01/22/2010 at 11:15 am

    He and Aniston are not any kind of couple, and it’s spelled c-r-e-t-i-n, not k-r-e-t-i-n.

  • Jill

    Lose the hat, Gerald. Maybe Brad Pitt can pull it off, but you can’t.

  • just one thing

    @Jill: It’s geraRd, not GeraLd.

  • Ladida

    lool good answer. I likey

  • Poor Gerard

    Stay away from Maniston, she’ll ruin your career—it almost looks like she already has with The Bounty Hunter

  • Ladida

    @Poor Gerard:
    Me likey that too…how true

  • postwatcher

    He is like the male version of Paris Hilton.

  • What happened to the phantom??

    He seems like a nice guy, but he tries too hard–too loud, too juvenile. Just go ahead and be a grown-up Gerard–get some credible roles and a more sophisticated wardrobe.

  • Alexis

    He looks like shitt. Lose the friggen hat and at least wash your jeans. I am sure you can afford to buy another pair.
    Has anyone seen the trailer of The Bounty Hunter . I won’t be wasteing my money. Anything the clueless JA stars in always stinks.
    Love Happens anyone? Or worse yet Management. She is terrible needs acting lessons. What happened to GB doing decent movies.
    I agree with the poster who said lose the Rom Coms.. Enough Already!!..Oh and stop spitting all over yourself when you speak. UGH!

  • lily

    I think he looks hot.

  • Benie

    Gerry looks tired and has outgrown that jacket, LOL. About his latest movies I liked The Ugly Truth very much, but otherwise many of them have been real bad choices (Nim´s Island, Gamer, Law-abiding Citizen). Bounty Hunter looks very bad indeed and besides he looks heavily overweight there. I guess that many actors are just better in keeping in good shape as well as in choosing their movies with more sense than Gerry.

  • yuck

    It looks like JJ is on speed dial to Butler’s publicist.
    Getting tired of this famewhore. Do a good movie, make amends.

  • Yank The Chain

    He looks okay..I don’t understand why he can’t dress down occassionally?..Why he needs to wear a tux 24/7..and He’s done some good the past..The Jury ..a British mini series was fabulous…as well as Shooters…300…Dear Frankie..and I liked Law Abiding Citizen..I think Hollywood needs better script writers…with their material…actors can only do so much..given the material they are reading..maybe that’s why he’s expanded to the producer role as well..

  • domesticdiva


  • meh

    Dressing down once in awhile is fine. But look at him here with Harrison Ford. He’s jeans look filthy. Those in the background also look a little more put together.

    And here he is with his “boys”. Nice apple core.

  • eh?

    I think one of his buddies is holding what looks like an eaten apple in his hand. really? on a film screening? classy.

  • Yank The Chain

    Yeah well…I’ve seen jeans like that at the Mall..they look “dirty”..Yep..with holes everywhere..and they aren’t cheap…

  • gossiphound

    @where did you get that hat:

    Someone need to mug that boy and say pants on the ground and then burn those jeans.

  • Cora

    In this pic you can see the apple core making it’s entrance onto the red carpet. That’s right. He brought his half-eaten apple with him. Nice.

  • Cap Sully

    pants on the ground.. pants on the ground… looking like a fool with your pants on the ground

  • gossiphound

    Do you have to be tall to be a friend of Gerry’s? Male and female?

  • @YanktheChain

    @Yank The Chain:

    And your point is that they look good at this event? I disagree. Just because jeans are meant to look like they have been dragged behind a car and are expensive doesn’t mean that you should wear them in every situation. I wouldn’t wear a tube top to a wedding either – even if it is D&G.

  • hunky tim

    Isn’t the guy on the left (not AppleBob) Hunky Tim the stuntman trainer guy (think he’s called Tim Connelly) not sure but its like his shot at imbd? I dont think you need to be tall, just dress like a homeless person. LOL

    cubie will know who it is! Is this your crush

  • Yank The Chain

    He does drop his drawers in one of the extras Part the Gamer dvd..Just have to wait til after the credits roll…Yep..and what a surprise..

  • Yank The Chain

    #47 I agree with u..I wouldn’t wear those jeans at a event like that..but hey..and tube tops..yeah..if u ever go to a trailer park wedding might find afew there…ewwww..just saying
