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!

    I see the official Cannes site has a daily who was here today and no Butler. If that is Fiennes twitter, Ralph is already working on editing the film so Ou est Gerry? There was some talk on that TV interview of Martina on Croatian TV about Gerry going to Croatia, Dubrovnik? Is that where the beaches are?

    Guess Robin Hood opened Cannes, Cate Blanchett looking ethereal as usual, Crowe brought his boys to Cannes.

  • s. cal. pal

    He’s had enough red carpet experience for a while and is sick of it and I guess he will take a pass for Cannes. I don’t blame him.

    I agree with Ballerina – I am 43 and SORRY but 40-something IS UP THERE to be clubbing every G.D. night for chrissakes.

    I had a look at the Cannes pics, Crowe looking good, his wife too; Cate, you used the right word, ethereal as usual!!

    When I have a look at these serious actors pics, well… it makes me wonder why the h*ll I come here to comment on Gerard Butler.
    What a douch*bag…. he had potential, guess he couldn’t care less to use it.. :(

  • s. cal. pal

    Maybe he knows he will never be as good as some of the greatest actors so he decides to seize the day having as much fun as possible while his fame lasts. He showed potentials and they are just that, potentials. None of his movies so far has convinced me he has the acting talent for a great actor or anything more than a ok actor. It’s not his fault that no every actor turns out to be great. He is what he is, a fascinating person and a mediocre actor. I am fine with that. I think one sets himself/herself for disappointment if he/she wish for something that’s just not there.

  • Fill In Name Here

    @Merlin: If he really is just all about the attention and nothing more, we should all stop posting. Remember, JJ and the other gossip sites keep posting stuff because people keep reading it.

    On the other hand, I think there may be a part of him that wants to change. Or at least we all hope so.

    @sallyo:

    I know Sallyo, half of Central Africa and North Africa was colonized by the French, and the south by the English and Dutch, (where the Afrikaans dialect/language springs from). Actually in a few places such as Mozambique, Spanish is an official language and a couple of other African countries have Arab as their official language as well..

    But as Merlin has put it, I wouldn’t be surprised ( actually i would be surprised if he doesn’t pull a couple of public appearances) if he gets media coverage while shooting in Africa. You’re going to see him in the local press, that I guarantee you. This is the way many movies get promoted before they hit the theaters, advertising a movie isn’t restricted to tv/web trailers ( and now twitter and facebook; you’ve got to love social media, word of mouth galore and most importantly it’s free) and movie critics prior to its launch or premiere..

    A movie gets promoted throughout ALL stages of production and what better way to instill and peak interest in an upcoming movie while having the lead actor schmoozing with the locals and with public appearances on location…
    My bet is that he will visit many local orphanages, will attend the world Cup (which we will definitely see pics similar to that of the Tennis Open in Serbia) will attend some other local causes and events etc..It’s free PR for the movie… any studio executive would be a complete moron if he didn’t implement such a pr strategy…

    Merlin, yeah go figure, even my mom was going on about him, I was like: this conversation is ABOUT ME not about HIM for Christ’s sake!!! LMAO

  • Lyonna

    I can’t believe I wrote a whole essay on the promotion of a movie… God I feel lame!!

  • sallyo

    @Lyonna: all im saying is he isnt as big a star there as he would be in Europe and US. He is probably the equivalent of maybe what channing tatum is here (sad but true) – a little bit on the radar and mostly among younger people. this is outside s. africa mind you – there things are a bit more advanced. If I asked 100 people on the streets of Dar es Salam who Gerard butler was i could bet you none would know.

    Production/his team will be more of the instigator to push publicity so Im sure we will see images but they will definitely have more control of whats being released for public consumption.

    @sallyo:

    I don’t disagree, I doubt half of the Sudanese population have any idea who Gerard Butler is. They have bigger fish to fry such as making ends meet…It makes you think of the disparity of this f***d up world we live in..

    On on hand you have Gerry Butler who flies first class and has luxury real estate located in the 3 most expensive cities (London, NY and LA) around the world and then you have families and communities in god forsaken parts of the world who live in shantytowns with no food, clean water, health care, education and the list goes on…

    ROFLMAO!!
    Unfortunately our moms always talk about him for the wrong reasons.. last year, when he was filming TBH, my mom said “mmmm, not bad the new Aniston’s boyfriend”… she didn’t have a clue she saw him in Nim’s island or Phantom of the opera.. yeah, go figure!!
    Gerry will be remembered for the gossip hookups….

    OT:
    1) I saw Prince of Persia trailer, Jake Gyllenhaal is yummy in that movie… did they use CGI to make him appear like that?
    2) Russell Crowe tweets… how come Crowe started using twitter? That’s lame Russell…

  • Get your facts straight

    @gossiphound: Où est Butler? On his way to LA according to a twitter from London this morning!

    hollaaaa @girlterate haa! you are gonna end up on some kind of list! liam’s just about to go to LA and has gerard butler on his flight!

  • sallyo

    @Merlin: jake gyllenhaal is winning me back!!

  • Lyonna

    @Merlin:

    LOL!! so true, moms always know how to seize them up eh?!
    I remember my mom telling me, isn’t he a little too old for you, I was like: I’m not planning on marrying him?! what kind of question was that for crying out loud!! Now I’m going all Sam Worthington on her…yeah I know he’s a midget, but he’s got something!! ; )

  • Merlin

    @sallyo:
    Me too!! I want to see this one… maybe it’s same old same usual Disney movie but… I’m a bit curious… ;-)

    Then, he’s in for more…clubbing!!!!!!!!!!!
    Hey LA girls, Gerard Butler is landing!!!!!!!!!

  • Lyonna

    oh and add Henry Cavill in that list… That man is seriously a hot piece of ASS!!

  • take note

    @Merlin: I don’t see how anyone can think that creepy Russell Crowe looks good. I saw a promo for Robin Hood last night and gagged. Dissipated old fool thinking he can play Robin. Never in my book. Robin’s father perhaps. Talk about looking old.

  • Merlin

    @Lyonna:
    My comment is awaiting moderation… I didn’t use any curse in it… I was talking about Sam worthington, hey JJ… Gerry is a bit jealous??

  • Lyonna

    @Merlin:

    why?! poor Sam, I think he deserves some place under the sun too.. : (
    Gerry has instructed JJ not to allow any discussions on his threads mentioning the competition: Sam Worthington.. His name is probably automatically blocked!

  • Merlin

    @take note:
    Take note that Crowe is 46 and could kick your a$$ everyday… Crowe rules in the movies, and yes.. when he’s all cleaned up, he looks good too!!
    Gerry would be more than happy to look that old and creepy at 46….

    Rofl!! It could be… Some time ago, on another board, a poster commented that Gerard is a Sam Worthington wannabe… Considering their age difference and acting experience, that was quite an insult… to Gerry.
    I had posted some interesting things about him but Alan is probably patrolling the boards to avoid fans leave Gerry for Sam.. bwahaha, kidding!!

  • Lyonna

    @Merlin:

    Yes he does kick-ass, and manages to work consistently with well-known and established directors, and he’s a truly gifted actor. yeah his looks have faded and he’s not known for the prettiest actor out there, but it just proves that he has acting talent.
    As long as I’m not the recipient of a flying phone,
    he’s good in my book : )
    Speaking of which, Leonard DiCaprio is another one that is due for an Oscar, he always gets snubbed by the Academy Awards, it’s beyond me…

    God if I only have your version of 43 to look forward to and not Butler’s…hell just kill me now. :(

  • take note

    @Merlin: To each his own. Crowe makes my skin crawl.

    Aside from that, I just can’t buy anyone long in the tooth playing Robin at the height of his ‘career.’ At least when Sean Connery had the role, it was “Old Robin.”

  • Lyonna

    @Merlin:

    Hmm.. well you do know that Sam has graduated from NIDA, right? one of the most prestigious acting schools in Australia, may I add…
    Given the right vehicle, he can kick ass just as his fellow New Zealander Crowe..

    @Lyonna:
    I totally agree!! Let’s hope HW doesn’t change him….

  • A Fan

    @take note: I understand what you are saying. I don’t think anyone past their early 30s should portray Robin Hood. And that includes Mr. Butler!

    Same as the Jamie Frasher character some are so hot for Gerard to take on. He’s way beyond the young Jamie of the early books, but could be the Jamie of the later ones.

  • Tonto

    @Cora:

    Cora, ITAWY I think his ego gets in the way of his potential as an actor. Because of his good looks and charm, he’s been able to get away with a lot, especially when he was younger. He’s chosen the right career for himself, something that feeds his ego and gives him all the attention he wants and needs. Unfortunately, unless he gets serious about honing his acting skills, the good looks and charm will eventually fade and he’ll be forced to grow up and behave like an adult, at least part of the time. I really think he tries, but he’s a compulsive type person and can’t seem to help himself. As long as the ladies continue to fall at his feet, he’s going to milk it until he can’t any more. He’s enjoying the fruits of his labors while he can and we can enjoy it or not for as long the Butler gravy trains keeps rolling along. Enjoy the ride. All aboard!!!

  • Lyonna

    Gerard Butler: Sex and Hoes! Bootycall duty on my honour!!….

    Russell Crowe/Robin Hood: It means “never give up”.

    Gerard Butler/ whateverhisname was in bounty hunter: it means “I will never give up” on booty

    @Goodness!:

    Another catfight… he’s got them lined up doesn’t he? I’ve to give him credit for that..

  • Merlin

    @Lyonna:
    ROFL!!! We’re sure he won’t ever give up on booty!!
    *
    @Tonto:
    I totally agree, let’s enjoy the ride… at least until he doesn’t fall apart!!

    @A Fan:
    You can like Russell Crowe or Kevin Kostner more or less, but Robin Hood has no age, nobody knows when he was born or when he died. In our imaginary idea of Robin Hood probably Errol Flynn set the age around 30, but hystorically it’s not proved R. Hood was that old when he became an outlaw.
    As concerning Jamie Fraser, he’s 24 during the first 2 books, but 44 from Voyager onwards, so Gerry would be perfect… just for the age though, I don’t really see him being casted as Fraser.

  • yesssssss

    http://www.gloriamagazin.com/362/naslovna/ I just found this stupid interview.You can translate it if you want to.I think that all that she said was already mentioned.Here in this article she states that she calls GB Gerry and when he was sending her messages he called her “baby” but never in person.She said that they were seeing each other only at the night because of his work on the movie.The article was probably written while he was still in Serbia.She said that when they went out they were driving in decent cars and not limos and he was wearing causal clothes.He sometimes used to tell her some quote from the movie and make fun of it just for her.She also said that he is going to Montenegro and then back to the Sates and that is weird because the press here reported that GB went to the Sates and the rest of the crew went to Montenegro.I prefer to believe the press and not this wannabe model.
    don’t know why I’m posting this but I thought that some of you would maybe interested in this BS.
    I have just one message for her which GB would also say: Get a life!

  • New to JJ Posting

    Don’t know who tweeted that Gerry is enroute to LA via London but here’s a link to an article dated yesterday including photos of him on set in Montenegro:

    http://radiokotor.info/mn/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=6685&Itemid=73

    Here’s the “translation”

    After Belgrade, where he was in the club ‘Oh! Sinema ‘prepared farewell party for the film crew’ Coriolanus’ Scottish actor Džerard Butler from now on Blackoj Gori. In Kotor we found him in sivomaslinastoj uniform, while shooting scenes for new film. Part of the Parilla and northern gate today in the afternoon were periodically closed to passersby, and the crew on the set, we learned only that allowed providing any information and photographs. By nature friendly butler, but is happy to respond to passers-by who were seeking the common image.

  • gotta be kidding

    sorry, no offense, but i just read the whole thread to catch up, being away for awhile, and I am not believing anybody’s earlier gerry fart stories! it’s just so easy to make up and say he did ’cause it’s funny. none of you ever heard the man fart!

  • sallyo

    whats she going on about stray dogs for? she thinks she’s heather mills? on a positive note, she looks much better in these shots than she did in the candids at the club. but i dont know where dzerard finds the energy. if i were in his position id hardly bother with the ‘seduction’.
