Gerard Butler: CHOKED While Singing

Gerard Butler: CHOKED While Singing

Gerard Butler hops on stage and sings his heart out while a mystery man playfully chokes him at a party at the Cinema nightclub on Monday night (May 10) in Belgrade, Serbia.

The 40-year-old Scottish stud has been in town to film his new movie, Coriolanus.

Last week, Gerry was spotted kissing a mystery blonde. He most certainly attracts a lot of attention from the women in Serbia!

    He hasn’t left Serbia yet? Surely he and his c*ck hat couldn’t have slipped past photogs at the airport…

    I still think an ankle bracelet tracking device is needed. We could watch the little blips as he cuts a path through every party on the planet.

    Like tracking Santa Claus’ route on Christmas Eve…

    I was wondering why a lot of people on here keep looking at Gerard’s pictures if they think his lifestyle is so repulsive. If I don’t find someone facinating, interesting I don’t bother looking at their photos. maybe these people like to see a so called ugly side of life. Maybe they should be looking at Kirk Cameron’s photos, sqeaky clean boy. then they could type stuff like he is in church again today, adopted 4 more kids, etc. Or do they secretly like bad boys! which in society has been proven over and over. If Gerard had a wife and kid sittiing at home and he was partying on” water” every weekend it could be a problem. I think he will be more settled in the future, for now lets be facinated. or check out Kirk!!!

  • LauraS

    @LOL: I was trying to find those pictures you were talking about but I found this instead (no idea if these are the same ones) ….. well….. hit my head with a stick and call 911! he looked delicious that day!

    I just spoke to my mom over the phone, who couldn’t care less about Hollywood .. I just have to say one thing, as we were discussing trivial daily matters (things that INVOLVE ME and not Butler Godamnit!!!), she all of the sudden started discussing Butler and told me the following: oh I just heard about Butler and his filming in Serbia all the while dating a Serbian model, and all about the fact that he will probably never settle down etc.

    I was pissing on my pants.. even my mother knows about Martina!! LMAO

  • gossiphound

    @New to JJ Posting: No one is saying don’t have fun don’t be yourself but other single male actors seem to be able to have their fun without their personal lives being turned into a comic soap opera. Clooney being the closest comparison. Yes he is scrutinized and yes he is a player but the general perception is he is a class act. Now for all we know perception is not reality but perception is what counts in Hollyweird.

    In a sense we enjoy Gerry for the very reasons that could be his ultimate undoing or that which prevents him from reaching his full potential as an actor, assuming that is even something he wants.

  • Fritz the Cat

    Repulsive is a strong word, but ok….
    I think a lot of peeps visit here for precisely that reason. The man is not boring and he’s pretty good eye candy as well.
    Oh…and a handful of posters here make my day a little brighter.

    This is a gossip board and not a fan site, Cindy. You will hear all types of opinions here. I don’t agree with everything that is said but I respect their right to say it.

    And there are some very intelligent people here who have some great insights. I like hearing all sides of a story–not just the one I want to hear.

  • Fritz the Cat

    @Lyonna:

    Wasss up, woman?
    I now have to go spend eight hours at a cash register and kiss peoples’ asses, but I hope to see you later.

    Have a great day, JJ’ers!

  • Cindy Lu

    I heard Kirk doesn’t even fart!! and if he does it probably smells like heaven! lol
    Plus if I didn’t like reading the others opinions i wouln’t visit this site.

    All’s good! Hope you have an awesome day, just imagine kicking and not kissing their asses and you’ll be ok!

    @gossiphound:

    I agree with you! :o)

  • gossiphound

    @New to JJ Posting:

    For example one of the bigger and legitimate complaints about Gerry is his ability to sustain an American accent in any film he has done and he himself acknowledges that. If you know you have an issue you work on it night and day until you get it, right up to when filming starts and continuing throughout the film. Even if it cuts into your clubbing, faux romance and nooky time. Move in with Childers for a month if you have to. If Matt Damon can pull off a flawless South African accent. Mr. Butler should be able to pull off a flawless American accent especially since he has done how many movies now with an American accent. Other Scottish actors have. But that takes time and commitment. Now easy for me to say because I don’t think I could learn an accent sufficient to carry off a whole film but then I didn’t train to be an actor I have no desire to be an actor and I am not getting paid big bucks to be an actor nor I am going out for roles that require me to change my accent. He can pull off the most brilliant performance of his life in MGP but if people are focusing on an accent that keeps shifting back to Scottish, say goodbye to Mr. Oscar.

    @gossiphound:

    Agree Gossiphound. The only other “celebs” you see partying as much as Gerry is the fame wh0res. no other actor who wants to be taken seriously as an actor is out clubbing as much as him.

    As far as his accent, he should easily be able to do an American accent with the amount of time he has been here. I have had several friends who have spent only months in a foreign country and have been able to immitate that accent perfectly. I am always shocked when i find out an actor is British because they have the accent perfectly, but for some reason gerry just can’t do it.

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

    LOL!….now now , girls!…remember it was five years ago…he’s still hot (sometimes) but like many here have said all that clubbing every night is not that good when we reach our 40s. And it shows in his looks.
    It’s not my place to talk about his private life but I really hope he surprises us with better performances in the future.

  • New to JJ Posting

    @gossiphound:

    Precisely! He needs to focus and work not just “on set” but really give this his “all”. This could be THE one and bring him to a different tier of offers and opportunities. Local “nooky” (LOVE that word) needs to be avoided for the sake of the bigger picture. Relax with friends but keep the focus.

    If his behavior in Serbia reflects the influence of a “Life Coach” right now. I think he needs a refund.

    Accent-wise. You are correct. He needs to focus. I just listened to a film clip with James McAvoy doing an American accent and it was great. Look at Hugh Laurie doing “House”. It can be done. Gerry has the talent and I think he can do it. He needs to NEED to do and WANT to do it. He needs to get obsessed by it because then he’ll invest the energy. Perhaps less cleanses and more work with an acting coach.

    I just had to see such potential squandered. If he could raise his game and have more input in the industry, think of the stories/projects he could bring forward. THAT would be the best “high”…not a random violinist/modest/entertainment reporter.

    GH, you have great observations.

  • Lyonna

    What he needs is to do is invest in an acting coach and not a life coach..If he wants to bring his game several levels up, he better dish the cash on a decent acting coach..

  • Ballerina

    New here – this guy is a piece of work! How can he stay out EVERY night?? He’s really up there in age right? forty-something.

  • Manny

    @Lyonna:
    .
    Well if he follows Aniston’s path… she just hired her acting coach to be her life coach. Like I said before… she has had this acting coach for like 20 YEARS and her acting is still mediocre… so what does that say for her future life!?!?!?! Ouch.
    ,
    Well I can’t say what Butler has delivered in the acting department in Serbia and we won’t see the results for months. Fiennes has been complimentary of his talent so maybe the extracurricular activities didn’t distract too much. Childers will be a challenge for him too. Accent aside, Childer’s life story is quite an emotional ride.
    .
    It seems some are judging the actor with only input from the playboy ways. Since none of us were on the set, at this point I’m on the wait-and-see fence for Coriolanus.
    .
    @Ballerina – 40 is up there? OMG I’m speechless. Speaking from the 30′s crowd… pffffft. Sorry but that is a pretty ridiculous statement girl.

    Lots of great insightful posts here today, but I just can’t stop laughing about fartgate! So mature, I know. :-D

  • New to JJ Posting

    I’m thinking back on that red-face in the singing photos and the comments about blood pressure. Gerry has put his body through a lot.
    Sometimes I’m afraid I’m going to log-on to JJ and find that he’s had a stroke or a heartattack and is in serious condition in a hospital.

    I sure hope that kind of thing isn’t what it will take to slow him down.

    And, yes, he CAN look amazing, and he CAN be adorable on talk shows and, he CAN sound intelligent in interviews…and he CAN give strong, moving and credible performances. The question is always…WILL he do those things this time…and next time…

  • New to JJ Posting

    Question: Who has custody of Lolita when he’s working on location?

  • LOL

    @LauraS:

    yep that’s them it’s even further back than I thought. They are some of my favourite pictures of him – he’s hotter than hot. I bet you’d have to take a second look if somebody as hot as that walked past.

    Let’s put this in the correct perspective…A little toot in a club is absolutely nothing. hehe

  • sallyo

    @lyonna fyi – most countries in africa were colonized by either french or the english. i doubt they are going to write about gerard butler – if they even know who he is – in their local languages.

    even though gerry is flavor of the month in the developed world he is by no means big enough to merit the same amount of attention in the 3rd world – Will Smith and Tom Cruise would probably going to get a reaction.

  • gossiphound

    If they film in South Africa, then he likely will get lots of attention unless all the media is focused on the World Cup. Clubbing by night rescuing orphans and fighting the janjaweed by day. How’s that for mind blowing.

    I guess she is not one of the hos he is used to that’s why he never saw her again. Good for you girl.
    does anyone know who the African girl is?

    Don’t underestimate Gerry’s tabloid power, we said exactly the same thing before he could go to Serbia.
    Do you think there wouldn’t be any pics about him clubbing in Africa?? Or singing songs with locals?
    Don’t count on that sally!!

  • Merlin

    @lolita:
    I think the girl in the pics is married too, it seems to me she has a gold ring on her left hand.
    Very pretty, but definitively not one of his ho’s… out of his league, as all the good smart women I think!!

  • gossiphound

    Check out the twitter that supposedly belongs to Ralph Fiennes, it does tend to sound like him but who knows:
    http://twitter.com/ralphfiennes

  • lolita

    @Merlin:
    He has some nerve doing that to her in public when she is married no less. He loves the ladies but a little bit of self-control will go a long way.

  • sallyo

    @Merlin: true, south africa may have more of a paparazzi culture so if he’s over there then he might get snapped. other african countries, not so much.
    plus – most people don’t get US weekly in africa – the tabloid effect is not as powerful. further to that, legit film distribution is not strong in these countries, pirated stuff, yes so they may be aware of him from that.

    a lot of the ‘big’ stars have done hard graft making themselves bankable internationally. gerry hasn’t done half as much leg work and being the talk of the tabloids doesn’t cut it.

  • Manny

    @lolita:
    .
    that was years ago… I wouldn’t waste too much anger on it. :)

  • lolita

    @Manny:
    yes, you’re right it was along time ago. But did he change or slow down a bit from these antics? Not really- he’s still doing the same thing. Remember finger gate?

  • sallyo

    im starting to think gerry has the worst luck when it comes to candid shots. they paint him in a really bad light.

  • gossiphound

    @sallyo: It doesn’t help when he certainly gives the impression he knows the paps are watching and he does shocking things exactly to provoke the paps. Yes he can be so adorably 12 sometimes.

  • Manny

    @sallyo:
    .
    There is probably more truth in that than we probably know. Remember during the filming of Booty Hunter and they had a pic where they said he had his hand on JA’s ass… well, turns out he was lifting his arm up behind her and didn’t even stop near her butt.
    .
    @lolita – you are right, the antics continue on. No surprise there. Sorry I just can’t muster up any righteous anger about this stuff any more. You either will give him a pass on it or not. I choose not to care… now if it was my ass… the story might be different. :)

  • lolita

    @Manny:
    I’m not really angry with him, I’m just fascinated by his personality. Usually when people reach 40 they do tend to slow down a bit. I wonder if he ever takes time to be alone and figure things out, because you just can’t repeat the same old same old. Does he ever get tired of it?

  • New to JJ Posting

    @gossiphound:

    “So adorably 12…” I like the way you put that!

  • To Tell The Truth

    @Clarie: At same event, he was with Camilla aka Waverly Woman aka Fishnet Lady:
    http://www.gbgalsgallery.com/v/partiesetc/wynning506/a6.JPG.html
    What was she doing with her arm behind her back – holding his hand or keeping it of her assterisk?

  • s. cal. pal

    I agree that his accent for Childes will be an big issue for him. It might take away and diminish whatever great acting he puts up and that would be a shame if it does. It’s strange he sounded so natural and appealing in interviews and yet sounded corny and warped in movies. I don’t know if it’s a matter of more practice or more sessions with a speech coach. Based on my observation he does better when he relaxes the muscles around his mouth and are not so emphatic about each word he utters. Maybe they should adjust his microphone to amplify his sound more so he can speak in a lower voice and let the flow of speech be more even and effortless. But hey what do I know.

  • sallyo

    he didnt get nominated for any mtv movie awards. i guess none of his films last year were hugely popular. was it just ugly truth that was no 1? how to train your dragon excluded.

  • gossiphound

    or everyone was too focused on his Serbian exploits to vote or too busy voting in the E! Online Last Real Man in Hollywood poll?
