Gerard Butler Calls Out His High School Crushes

Gerard Butler dishes on his high school crushes in this clip from the Wednesday (March 24) episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The 40-year-old Scottish actor shared stories from two of his former flames in high school and said he wasn’t always such a hit with the ladies!

“[One girl] flirted outrageously with me,” Gerry shared. “She’d hold my hand, smiling and always pretending we were boyfriend and girlfriend until I made my huge attraction to her very clear, at which point she said, ‘I’m not in the slightest bit interested.’ It killed me!”

    LMAO he is too funny…

  • Janey

    I saw the show last night. Butler was on a roll. Funny and hot at the same time.

  • wondering

    will the women sue him for using their names. Some of Gerry’s conquests should come forward and talk about him.

  • ugh

    @wondering:

    ummm…they should be so lucky he even said their names

  • anon annoy

    So that’s why he’s psycho

  • Holly

    They probably are made up names. But even if not, he was saying how they put him down… It probably puffs up their egos. Bragging rights: “I turned him down in high school you know.”

    Anyhoo, that was a great bit. I smiled the whole time.

  • Witch

    Anyone who would sue over something like that would look like the world’s biggest as#h.ole.

  • wondering

    @ugh:
    oh yeah, it’s so important to have a f-cked up guy remember your name.
    – not-

  • stephie

    He is really becoming a bit too full of himself.. better watch out..

    Fame is a fleeting as your next BO Bomb..

    Children’s movies don’t count..

  • Law Student

    A lawsuit wouldn’t reach a judge. Payment would be made out of court to keep the girls quiet.

  • Heidi

    I don’t see him as overly full of himself. He’s always willing to make a joke at his own expense.

    That said, all H-wood celebs have some degree of fullofthemselvesitis. They wouldn’t be in showbiz otherwise.

  • ugh

    omg you guys amaze me…get a sense of humor and if you don’t like the guy why did you bother watching the video??

  • observer

    ugh: Ditto

  • sukar

    What’s the big deal anyway>? I mean haven’t we all been rejected by a crush in high school. Come on Gerry that is not an excuse for the way you treat women now!

  • tool

    Nice of him to out that Julie girl as the high school slut and give her full name. He didn’t even seem to realize it either.
    What a tool.

  • I bet

    a lot of guys would love to be able to do what Butler did on Kimmel. Some high school experiences really can have a lasting impact.

    (I doubt if he used anyone’s real names. These interviews are not as spontaneous as they appear. I’ve read that most everything is pretty well mapped out before the shows begin. No one just goes out and wings it.)

  • gossiphound

    @tool:

    I hope this will spawn a number of fascinating high school confessions about Gerry….better yet college and law school heh heh

    Maybe he sees Tiger and Jesse James and feels left out…

  • KyrieM

    yeah GH, thanks for keeping track of the BO predictions.

    Gerry, no comment… If I had found a guy like that in high school, I would probably have turned him down too… (he could try to act in some kind of movie like Ghosts of girlfriends past, it fits him well)

    OMG, we will be nauseated at the end of this week… 3 more premieres in EU too..

  • lena

    @19 gossiphound – LOL. Lets her it girls!

  • KyrieM

    @gossiphound: Maybe he sees Tiger and Jesse James and feels left out…
    -
    Probably!! What about him getting married just to cheat on his wife and to end up in every rag?? Can you imagine how many covers? that could give him plenty of attention… ;-)

  • gossiphound

    @I bet:

    Yes and it works both ways, Both men and women were hurt badly in high school and we ALL did cruel things to other kids, the school nerds, the school slut, the school rejects, I cringe when I remember back at how cruel teenagers can be and the word is that has not changed if not made worse by cyberbullying and girls being more aggressive than ever.

    Hey some of the best movies of all time and best novels and best songs were written about that. Gerry admits to being a bully and remember he was all upset because one of the guys on 300 knew Gerry back in the day and he didn’t want all the stories getting out about him being a bully. Well until he admitted it all later.

  • KyrieM

    @gossiphound:
    Well until he admitted it all later.
    Did he for real? At least he was honest.

    Gerry Butler was bullied not the other way around.

  • whatshername??

    Aww, for some reason…Gerry looks cuter when he away from women who tend to hang all over him. Gerry and Jimmy are probably trying to do some damage control so Gerry is known as the lone ranger again to certain people who buy and believe in tabloids, cough..ff fools.

  • gossiphound

    @Anonymous:
    I got the movie wrong, the guy’s name is Tony Curran a Scottish actor that worked on Beowulf not “300″. I’ll find the quote. If I am wrong I’ll add another $20 to the Dragon Box Office pool because I was surprised he considered himself a bully.

  • gotta be kidding

    I posted this on previous thread, sorry, but why are his sexual conquests/things of a sexual nature practically all he talks about in an interview, doesn’t he get any self worth out of his trade? or is it he just doesnt want to sound boring in interviews just talking about the movie? he’s so peculiar that way.

  • flatley

    He said he always got into fights when in school. The word “bully” was not used; just misquoted or misinterpreted later by some posters.

  • Tonto

    Okay I’ll take a shot in the dark. I’m in for $82.5 mil.

  • flatley

    The interviewers, here Jimmy Kimmel, ask him questions with a sexual nature. The main reason behind asking these kind of questions is the fact that Gerry is now more known for his conquests/prowling than his work sadly. He should plead 5th sometimes and take more control of what kind of questions are asked at interviews.

  • gotta be kidding

    @flatley:

    ur right. then it seems he needs to feed his answers with actions afterward like going to that nightclub w/a female entourage (I never heard him do that before) and chat up every female in the place. or so they say, hehe……..who knows?

  • Curious Carla

    @gossiphound: I’ll take a stab at this, too and guess HTTYD will bring in around $64.8 million this weekend.

  • Manny, formerly ManLESSton

    Gossip – CJ posted a guess of $133M on the last thread.

  • gossiphound

    Thanks Manny don;t worry I’ll be checking the last thread and this thread for a while…

  • gossiphound

    @flatley:

    True but sometimes he drifts to sex out of the blue, when there was no hint of it in the question or none that a normal person would see – check out some of the interviews for HTTYD. Hilarious except it is a kids movie however I doubt kids are reading the articles or watching the online videos – they just go to see the movie.

  • the real cece

    @ugh: Why? So people will think they have herpes?

    @lena: I noticed that too, Lena. They must be panicking now that more and more is coming out.

    @flatley: What’s he going to talk about? His films are crappy. Hearing him go on and on about playing a cartoon character is so ridiculous it’s funny. Mel Blanc never talked about all he had to do to develop his character’s voices and delving into their psyche. Actors rambling about how hard their jobs are or the their soul searching to tap into the characters is as dull as watching traffic. Hearing a Starbuck’s barrister talk about making a frappuccino would be more interesting.

    @Anonymous: No. That would be his fans. That’s why they stick up for him. They’re hoping they’ll finally be popular with the popular guy at school because they think they found him first. He’s already moved on to the cheerleaders, so they should get over it.

  • flatley

    Entertainment Weekly predicts a weekend box office of 45 million which is reportedly a good number Dreamwork is hoping for.

  • the real cece

    @flatley: It should do well. Kids films usually do and it’s gotten a lot of promotion.

  • nyob

    Funny interview. He looks good too.

  • i’ll help

    For the person who asked about the old girlfriend, he mentioned the girl he was dating from NY and he was dating a “nice girl” a month later (see below), assumed to be the same woman since the interviews would have been done at least three months in advance. That’s when he was dating Jasmine.

    @gossiphound: I meant when he was a kid. Gerry Butler was picked on mercilessly. It seems the angry boy grew into an angry man.

  • gotta be kidding

    @Anonymous:

    why did he get picked on so much?

  • ladyice

    @gotta be kidding:

    Because he was a twink growing up in Glasgow. Please take read his Genre Magazine Dec 04 issue.
