Gerard Butler Has Pleasant Parents

Gerard Butler Has Pleasant Parents

Gerard Butler steps out in a leather Ferragamo jacket as he lunches with his mother, stepfather and a mystery girl on Wednesday (March 17) in Soho, New York City.

At the premiere for The Bounty Hunter, the 40-year-old actor tried to explain the good relationship to Jennifer Aniston. “You know, that’s a hard one to explain,” he told MTV News. “Who knows why? You either just have chemistry or you don’t.”

“I’m like a fun-loving, energetic guy, and she’s boisterous,” Gerry explained. “She’s got a lovely personality, and there’s this action-packed, fun script. We’re always going to, I think, have a good chemistry.”

10+ pictures inside of Gerard Butler having lunch with his parents…

    Where are the pics of the girl? They are all over gettyimages

  • Cora

    @ sukar:
    .
    If you click on picture # 5 you can just see the “mystery girl”.
    .
    But you’re right. There are more and better pics of the mystery girl at getty. Where is Mr. Giggles when we need him?!

  • Go Ask Alice

    No mystery asbout Anniston. Gerald Butler has said and implied a few times and is still saying they worked well together and were friends.
    Her side did not spin this at all.

  • bonnie

    Oh my god the chick looks miserable

  • Gia

    So why does she look so sad?

  • Are They Aren’t They????

    And there he was the other night according to Curious Carla professing to a complete stranger JA was the love of his life and that we’ll hear wedding bells soon and now she’s had a facelift to morph into a Megan Fox clone. I’ll say one thing for Gerry he normally does not get caught in public with those he dates so she’s probably just a “friend”

  • caption of

    images on getty describe her as his girlfriend

  • Are They Aren’t They????

    @Gia:

    She looks so sad because she probably had to eat more than a few lettuce leaves to prove to Margaret she could develop child bearing hips hee hee.

  • Not a girlfriend

    You people are sick, She is his cousin. She lives in NYC and is 23 yrs old.

  • looks like

    at this point he is no longer concerned about their TBH narrative

  • Are They Aren’t They????

    @caption of:

    I’m sure everyone has noticed the “his girlfriend” – is this another sly move by him to quickly put the Gennifer rumours to bed???? or is this an assumption on Getty’s part and she’s maybe on staff or simply just a girl friend. I’m sure by end of today somebody will post everything about her.

  • Gia

    @Not a girlfriend:

    And how do you know this?

  • Cora

    Blessedly, it is Roger Ebert who writes it best, “I stared with glazed eyes at The Bounty Hunter. Here is a film with no need to exist.”
    .
    (posted this morning on Rotten Tomatoes)

  • I’m surprised

    he described Jen as “boisterous”. Is he just openly mocking the media now?

  • sukar

    huh the cousin story actually makes sense.

  • oh no

    TBH has slipped from 11% fresh to 9% fresh

  • KiTtY

    @sukar: Yeah, he learned his lesson from the Bianca episode.. He’ll never be seen with a girlfriend in public I don’t think. Didn’t he say when he finds somebody really special, we will never see her… something like that.

  • oh boy

    Roger Ebert calls it “dreck” and says
    “Have I lost touch, or are bounty hunters routinely deployed to track down criminals accused of no more than a non-fatal traffic violation? Never mind.”

  • Cora

    @ sukar
    .
    The cousin story makes sense to me, too. Poor girl if true. Gerry dates young women her age, so she gets ID’d by getty as his g/f. LOL! If she’s his cousin then she’s definitely inherited the family beauty gene (and the height one too)! They’re a good looking family. I always thought Margaret was a beautiful woman.

  • why is it never

    Jen caught lunching with mystery man?

  • Are They Aren’t They????

    oh well i said someone would come back before end of day with the info and it was here before i refreshed – scary.

  • Stupid idea

    @KiTtY:What is he going to do? Hold his girlfriend captive in the basement?

  • FART?

    LMAO…It looks like he is farting in someones face on pic6.
    The girl looks pretty..but I seriously doubt that she is his gf, simply because she shows no interest into the conversation or his parents.
    Like she doesn’t want to be associated as his gf….she sure is pretty though…if she would smile.

    Is this his cousin?????Well I dunno…Pretty family members then.

  • Cora

    @ Stupid idea:
    .
    Gerry also said (at the Oscars, no less) that he would only bring “a serious girlfriend” to a red carpet event. So he seems to change his mind on whether he would make a g/f public or not.

  • Curious Carla

    @why is it never: Simple – no self-respecting man would be caught dead within 100 yards of her for fear of being her next victim. She’ll never get a man on a regular or permanent basis, she strikes fear into men with her whiny, desperate, needy, clingy and “it’s all about me” ways. She’s toxic material for any man, and men tend to run from women like her. That has been evident over the years since her beloved Brad managed his “great escape.” Also, with her never letting herself ever get over Brad, there aren’t many, if any men, who would ever compete with the “ghost of husband past.” She is going to die a lonely, old, shriveled up, hag of a woman, and it will all be of her own doing.

  • OT: Inbred hick questionnaire

    1. Have you ever diddled a hot cousin when no one was looking?
    2. Have you ever been diddled by a hot cousin?
    3. Is anyone here married to a cousin?
    4. Do you live in a trailer?
    5. Do you have 70 kids?

    You need to grow up, you don’t know her.

    You people are sick, She is his cousin. She lives in NYC and is 23 yrs old.

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

    ha,ha, ha nice try girl, of couse she is his and approved by his parents.

  • Scathing reviews

    He must have been having a massive brain trauma when he agreed to do TBH. Or, Jen hired a decoy and got him to sign the contract during sex. Men can be trapped very easily because they think with their d****

  • Stinkylouise
  • I wonder what

    mom thinks about the age disparity with the girlfriend.

    He could almost be her father.

  • ???

    If Jen got on SO GREAT with mum, and she’s going to Scotland to meet her and golf, why wasn’t Jen at lunch with mum and not this girl?

    The premiere was just last night so you’d think Jen would still be in NY.

  • poor girl is bored shltless

    If I was meeting my boyfriend’s parents, I would make an effort every time. But this mystery girl looks traumatized in the Getty pics. She must have just seen the crappy Bounty Hunter movie at the theater and has developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

  • lisa

    Gerry really needs to stop talking about the “great chemistry they had”.

    Really because the W shoot showed NO CHEMISTRY./ The movie trailer shows NO CHEMISTRY..

    Jennifer has NO CHEMISTRY WITH ANY ONE SHE WORKS WITH. reminds me of Clive Owen. LOVE him.. but man his chemistry with woman on screen is Nothing at all..

    I can’t bare to watch Gerry in this Crap fest.. I say NOPE.. waiting for his next movie.

  • what ever

    This girl looks more his speed.. People can talk all day about what a great body Jen has.. how she looks good for her age.. the point is she is 41.. and a man that may want children knows that his options are limited with her. and no matter what she is not 20.. regardless of how good or hot some people think..

    Gerry can talk about her legs and the great time they had. Trust if she was all that he would be all over her.. and He is not. the promo is over and he is going back to his usual.. getting ready to start a new film.. Aniston will be just a thought next week.. They did what they needed to do to try and get this terrible movie to make some money.. both of them need it to be a hit..

    Now now, the women aren’t “cheap” they are just “having fun” and “using” Gerard because afterall he’s “using them”. This is “empowering” and the women are asserting their “sexual freedom”.

  • Another review

    The Chicago tribune, he says;

    “Also it would be nice to not hate the male lead. While he certainly has presence and a good voice, there’s something about Butler in these sorts of jolly-tormentor roles that makes me think “soccer hooligan.” As for Aniston, her script karma continues its vengeful post-”Friends” rampage. Here she is mainly confined to a one-note snit, and to modeling the way her behind looks from behind, in tight skirts…”
    http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/movies/sc-mov-0316-bounty-hunter-20100318,0,4546167.column?track=rss

    Its going to be a long week (RT is already down to 8%) and unless there are an army of reporters who are the mom jeans army who crew the motherships – the trend might continue

  • Another review

    The Chicago sun, he says;

    “I stared with glazed eyes at “The Bounty Hunter.” Here is a film with no need to exist …
    … Why, oh, why, was this movie necessary? Could it have been redeemed by witty dialogue? Perhaps, but neither is allowed to speak more than efficient sentences serving to further the plot. Hollywood movies started to simplify the dialogue when half the gross started to roll in from overseas. Has anyone noticed the great majority of nations dub foreign-made movies, so that subtitles aren’t a problem?
    Butler is a hunk who can also act; he’s currently starring in Ralph Fiennes’ “Coriolanus.” Aniston is a gifted comedienne. If you could pay their salaries, wouldn’t you try to put them in a better movie? I saw the poster and had a sinking feeling the title gave away the whole story…”

  • Another review

    View London says

    “Disappointing, frequently dull and painfully unfunny romcom that’s let down by a badly written script, obnoxious characters and a total lack of chemistry between Butler and Aniston…

    The Bad
    If Jennifer Aniston is the best thing about The Bounty Hunter then Gerard Butler is easily the worst – essentially reprising his boorish character from The Ugly Truth, he’s utterly obnoxious (his smug laugh is particularly annoying) and a charisma-free zone from start to finish. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he has zero chemistry with Aniston and neither of them can bring any spark to either the love scenes or the scenes where they’re fighting.”

    I think that this might have been posted else where (there are at least two of us posting as ‘another review’ so apologies if you have already seen this,

  • hellotheregb

    Nice job on Regis and Kelly. They gave him a very long segment and he did not seem to suffer from foot to mouth disease. His Mom and Stepdad in the audience. He looked beautiful and was sweet. Such a nice side to G. You can always go back to the leprechaun video for his “darker” side if need be.

  • Another review

    Yup stinky, my 7% is looking way to perky now – JA’s worst ever RT tomatometer was 5% for Swept Away with Madonna! could be down there yet – early days still.

    Old Dogs is opening with a review listing of about 6% and the Jackie Chan ‘Spy next door’ has got a better rating than TBH (LOL at that).

    @Suffering Fools gladly: This is “empowering” and the women are asserting their “sexual freedom”.
    —————–
    Assert away women. . . when men never fully trust and respects your actions, they will not stick around to rear your children with you either.
    Having “fun” has a price. I hope you assertive women have a village or a ton of money when you decide to have kids. Or better yet. Have a lot of “fun” and do not have any. Great does not come from dysfunctional. Stupidity breeds more stupidity.

  • ??

    What leprechaun vid????

    So have the dark forces amongst us already figured out who she is??

    She sure makes a sour face…dang smile woman you are dating a man with beauty in his soul.
