Gerard Butler: Surprised He Wasn't Oscar-Nominated

Gerard Butler: Surprised He Wasn't Oscar-Nominated

Gerard Butler flies out of NYC and arrives at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Wednesday (March 3).

The 40-year-old Scottish stud, who wore PRPS jeans, thinks he should have been nominated for for an Academy Award this year.

“To be honest, I’m surprised I wasn’t nominated for an Oscar this year,” he told NYMag at the Cosmopolitan Fun Fearless Male Awards on Monday. “I mean, did they see Ugly Truth? Did they see Gamer? But I have the honor of presenting at the Oscars, and I had this genius idea that I was going to record it on my DVR, and then just watch it backwards, and then I’m going to feel like I won. Who’s going to know the difference?”

That Gerry is such a jokester! He will be presenting at the Oscars this year, though…

  • cubedweller

    LOL Watch himself presenting – backwards. Now that is funny.
    Almost as funny as the Elmer Fudd hat.

  • Dreads


  • notcharming

    The hat and jacket do not go together. He should have worn a neutral colored hat. But I do not think he cares.

  • lol

    What he said is freaking hilarious hahaha

  • I am the Walrus

    which is worse that hat or the jacket… my god he is so not gay

  • zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    When I saw that photo..I immediately thought of Vermount and maple sugar and lumberjacks..No offense to anyone who lives there..Vermount is a beautiful state…Yep, and Elmer Fudd and that guy on Green Acres..

  • Mr. Giggles

    Cubie —- G must wear these ugly hats for OUR amusement …….
    there can be no other rational explanation for them

  • stupidfans

    What is he wearing? It looks like someone tried to stuff Elmer Fudd in a trash bag.

    When will he learn that disguises don’t work?

  • stupidfans

    Jared, you put a “Get the Look” link on that outfit? Are you insane?

  • Mr. Giggles

    Hi …. I’m Larry and this is my brother G, and this is my other brother G…

  • Just wondering…

    Is it true Gerard is dating Nina Siemaszko? I saw on a website called Apparently they’ve been dating since December. I wonder how they met…
    Oh wait, I see it’s gone from the website now. Weird, it was there on Monday. Hmm…

  • cubedweller

    @Mr. Giggles:
    Now I can’t get this song out of my head – make it stop !!!

  • Rachel Zoe

    That is one ugly outfit!! Super ugly hat, ugly jacket, ugly pants, ugly shoes. *shakes head*
    If GB had brought his pug I could have written ugly dog too.
    This is too much ugly for my eyes to handle.

  • [forgetMEnot]

    I wish he didn’t do as many action films…

  • cubedweller

    Hey JJ – can we please have a thumbs up/thumbs down feature on the clothing? Put them right next to the dots – perfect.

  • cubedweller

    I have something nice to say: ahem…

  • Lavender

    OK, could someone please help me with this. I was over at the GALS site and someone in the forum mentioned that they had watched or read an interview with Gerry where he gets asked what his favorite thing to do is. He answers “Have sex”. Does anyone know where I can find this interview?

  • Lydia

    ahhhhhh ha ha ha Love it !!!!

  • notcharming

    @Just wondering…: Names keep coming on and off that list. Hard to say. .. .

  • fridayiminlove

    —– He answers “Have sex”.——

    LOL! Why am I not surprised? :)

  • KyrieM

    No problem, just ask him. This is the first thing he’s going to answer you.

    @cubedweller: I have something nice to say: ahem…
    Oh come on, he’s pretty too… and yes, he stopped the spray tanning for a while. Until sunday, probably.

  • spanky

    biting my tongue …..i so want to reply

  • cubedweller

    What’s that wailing, keening, sobbing noise? Oh, it’s Tim Gunn over there – pull yourself together Tim, there’s nothing anyone can do. Have a tissue.

  • fridayiminlove

    Is Anuston presenting at the Oscars as well?

  • Pat

    This comment was in one of his interviews when he was asked his favorite thing to do and he replied “having sex.” It was a word game where the interviewer gave him a word or phrase and he answered with this.

  • Pat

    Forgot to say it was the Nim’s Island’s interviews from Hawaii.

  • ManLESSton, I likely…

    I see Gerry has been going through the trash bin at the Salvation Army again. You gotta love a frugal Scot.

  • KyrieM

    @ManLESSton, I likely…:
    LOL Manlesston… He’s trying not to waste money, he’s a producer now.

  • zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Yeah Pat..Nim’s Island was it and it was a children’s film…Nice answer for a children’s film..nice promotion too…Makes me wonder how he’ll promote this children’s Dragon movie???….

  • Oscar appearance

    Dear Gerry,

    For Oscar, please follow these instructions:

    No orange spray tan;
    Leave your hair alone. Don’t cut it any shorter than now;
    Leave some salt n pepper in and don’t ever color it jet black;
    Shave your neck and try to do a good job at it;
    Have a good night rest on Saturday so you’ll look refreshed and rested;

    Thank you.

  • Lavender

    @Pat: Thanks!

  • @spanky

    don’t bite it, choke on it

  • hhmmmm

    @Just wondering…:

    He is dating the good looking guy in the photo ….moron!

  • CynicalButNot


    LMAO .. “Elmer Fudd in a trash bag” and


    thumbs up, thumbs down on the outfit LMAO

    Where WHERE does he find this stuff??!! And … If he has assistants who stock his refrigerator, why can’t they cull his closet??!!

  • Oscar appearance

    I wonder who does his shopping for clothes? He mentioned he liked to buy hats because he collected hats.

    Stupidfans’ “Elmer Fudd in a trash bag” is the best comment of the day.

  • gossiphound


    Oh Cube what a notion. Put Gerry in Tim’s hands just once, sigh.

    Maybe Gerry knows too much hot ande the rest of us can’t handle it. LOL.

  • ManLESSton, I likely…

    Caption for the photo above: “Dumpster diving in LA”

  • baby got back
  • gossiphound

    @Oscar appearance:

    Wise advice actually but you know he won’t follow the last piece for sure.

    Yeah who is the dude – this is a new character. The entourage getting reshuffled?

  • Lavender

    The jacket looks too small for him.

  • Scary

    I don’t think he looks good with his hairy face.

  • gossiphound

    So Gerry’s coat is from Nordstroms, not the Salvation Army but to my shock it is not expensive at all. I had to look it up because if it was expensive I’d be more perplexed. Gerry will be very pissed to see the 33% off sale now.

  • angel

    @gossiphound: that’s not from nordstrom. JJ just picks clothes similar to what the celebs are wearing from their sponsors.
