Gerard Butler: Playing In Paris

Gerard Butler: Playing In Paris

Gerard Butler chats with a friend while checking his cellphone in Paris, France on Tuesday (May 25).

Last week, there was some speculation that the 40-year-old Scottish actor may be a top contender to the remake of A Star Is Born.

The 1954 classic is about a dwindling movie star that helps a young actress rise to fame. According to the LA Times, Russell Crowe was once considered for the lead role, while Beyonce is rumored to play the rising star. However, since no offer has been made to Russell, Warner Bros. is considering other options for the lead role with Gerry on the list.

    Hi Alan, welcome to Paris.

  • http://entertainmentalley.com N.

    That friend is Gerry’s manager/producing partner, Alan Siegel. Loving the cargo pants! Kind of wish he hadn’t colored over the graying hair but maybe it’s for his next role in Machine Gun Preacher.

    i love gerry!!!

  • Meeting Horseface?

    So he’s in Paris. Wonder if he’ll hook up with Laurie again…

  • Manny

    I see his assistant isn’t his stylist… Did he roll a homeless guy for that shirt?…

  • gossiphound

    Does the fact JJ is mentioning A Star is Born remake mean this is something being seriously considered?

  • gossiphound

    He definitely washed that gray right out of his hair. LOL. Too bad.

  • Manny

    I’m sorry, I just can’t stop laughing at that shirt. It is probably really expensive and looks like… well… sh!t.
    .
    Damn he is a fine looking man who is fashion challenged isn’t he?

  • …..

    Gerard Butler is a W H O R E.

  • gossiphound

    @Meeting Horseface?: Well if her ratings on her new show need some pumping.

  • Manny

    @gossiphound:
    .
    No I don’t think so. I just think that JJ reads our posts for more news. hehe

  • long time lurker

    @ Manny
    Fashion challenged is a kind way of putting it. His sartorial disasters do make me smile though

  • Stinkylouise

    Looks good. Too bad about the hair.
    And I think Alan may be more frightening in profile.LOL!

  • Manny

    @long time lurker:
    .
    I can just see him digging through a dufflebag… “I’ve worn this one and this one and this one… wait what is this ball here? Oh yeah, I haven’t been seen in this one yet…”
    .
    And no I’m not talking about randoms he has picked up on the streets… his shirts. LMAO

  • Nuts

    @Manny:

    “Did he roll a homeless guy for that shirt?”

    HAHAHAHAHAHA. Perhaps Blonde Assistant doesn’t do his packing for him. He may be a “crammer” instead of a neat packer.

    Perhaps “rumpled” is his way of seeming endearing…and not just “I pulled out the first clean stuff I could find”

    And, all of those open buttons…makes me think of Lindsay Lohan’s blouse at her hearing on Monday…

  • Oscar Wilde

    If the script is good I’d love to see G in that role. However I am not sure about Byounce though.

  • sophie

    Does GB always have to show his chest and chest hair like that? He looks like a dam* player (and he is one so I guess it’s appropriate, LOL)

  • redOctober

    ….bad choice of t-shirt….possible remake…..no natural grey hair…… : (

  • Manny

    @sophie:
    .
    I think he has to keep the shirt unbuttoned like that so he can admire his chest hair in windows as he is walking by… or maybe he is just turned on by his own chest hair… hehehe wouldn’t surprise me. :)

  • Nuts

    @Manny:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I do hope Blonde Assistant reads all of these posts and get a chuckle out of them.

    BA sits in front of laptop rocking back and forth and laughing so hard she can scarcely breathe:

    Gerry to BA: “Hey, what’s so funny? Let me see!”

    BA snaps laptop shut. “Uh, nothing…” Hands him a cupcake as a distraction.

  • she

    What made my heart start pounding today has to do with rumers I heard about things that are going to happen here next month. This time it’s going to be fast and deadly. I hope my source is wrong.

  • Manny

    @Nuts:
    .
    That is soooo true. A cupcake will always distract that man.
    .
    So shall we name Blonde Assistant “BloAss” … catchy huh? hehe

  • Manny

    @she:
    .
    Cool… is it a fashion assassination? Gerry’s new rolled-in-a-ball but ready-to-wear line?
    .
    @Nuts… poor BloAss… things could be worse. She could be Russell Brand’s assistant. ;)

  • Nuts

    @she:

    Translation? Something to do with Gerry…or a world calamity?

  • gossiphound

    I just posted this at the old thread so forgive me, from a blog commenting on one of the Cannes threads here:

    “He’s probably hitting up all the big wigs for money for Evil Twins productions. He always looks like a homeless person who stumbled upon a party. Really JJ?”

    Give the assistant a nice nickname – Wonder Woman?

  • Nuts

    @Manny:

    St. Blondie of the Terminally Distracted… Patron Saint of Personal Assistants

    I’ll bet she has one suitcase dedicated solely for carrying packs of Hostess cupcakes…

  • Oscar Wilde

    I think Gerry has the best looking chest hair, not too much and very sexy and all at the right spot. Some men’s chest hair is gross and it goes all the way to the back.

  • gossiphound

    @she: Is this a terrorist attack? I know the Billion dollar security price tag for 48 hours to protect the G20 Summit in Toronto is not going over big here – someone said just have a video conference instead and save us the money.

  • Manny

    @Nuts:
    .
    She is an endearing girl. I like BloAss… short for Blonde Assistant. Not disrespectful at all. She is now a part of the Gerry entourage, i.e., AppleBob, AssApple, Fry Guy, etc. She is now famous, or is that infamous? hehe

  • redOctober

    I like BlAss /BloAss better, sounds more…atmospheric…

    And , please She …can you elaborate…I’m shaking here. Are we talking of something of Biblical proportions?…should I run for the mountains?

  • gossiphound

    @Nuts: LIndsay did not get the memo, cleavage has the opposite effect on female judges.

  • spanky

    Gerard Butler, playing …….. as opposed to what exactly ?…….oh yeah i forgot Captain Partypants is an “actor.”

  • Manny

    @gossiphound:
    .
    I saw that clip of her in the court giving the judge attitude. I loved the judge throwing the book at her too.

  • Belle

    Time out. Wasn’t he at the Nice Airport on Sunday, and later seen in NYC? And he’s back in France? This doesn’t add up. Someone doesn’t have their facts straight – maybe he never went to NYC.

    Again, why do we have this thread? This is pointless.

  • she

    @Manny: not really

  • gossiphound

    @Belle: He likely was never in NYC or has an imposter, LOL.

    I imagine and no I am not looking up the flight schedules out of Nice airport that one has to fly to Paris from Nice to then catch a flight to LA or NYC.

    Or Gerry has an NYC imposter. Actually he should hire a double as decoy, for those moments when he doesn’t want the paps to catch him. Just find another cock hat and the double is in business.

  • Nuts

    @she:

    So no impending disaster…

  • Merlin

    ROFLMAO!!!
    *waves to Nuts and Manny and GH and all the regs*

  • Nuts

    @gossiphound:

    The decoy/double has to get the leer down, too. Something TMZ-worthy…

  • redOctober

    @gossiphound:

    Actually he should hire a double as decoy,

    …what a clever idea…and how many possibilities…

  • Merlin

    @Stinkylouise:
    And I think Alan may be more frightening in profile.LOL!

    Did you think it was even possible?? lol

  • LauraS

    @Belle: GB showing cleavage is never pointless :)) I like the gray in his hair too but this is not a bad color for him….not like that dreadful BH hair.

  • Merlin

    @Belle:
    Again, why do we have this thread? This is pointless.
    *
    Why did we have all the others?? There were pointless too!!

    Gerry in Paris with his cell phone
    Gerry in Nice airport
    Gerry near the poolside
    Gerry in Cannes partying

    Do you see something interesting coming out of those threads?
    And maybe it’s even the best publicity for him, when he opens his mouth he’s going to do only damage (maybe that’s why another poster talked about an incoming disaster next month… Gerry is giving a press conference?)

  • The Comedian

    He died his hair
    Good choice

  • LauraS

    @redOctober: how will we handle two talking nonsense fashion challenged GBs? although the double eye-candy would be nice :)

  • Belle

    @Merlin: All I’m saying is that there should be more of a reason than just showing a few pictures of him talking on a cell phone. The exception is the pool thread, because we got to read that quote.

    “(maybe that’s why another poster talked about an incoming disaster next month… Gerry is giving a press conference?)” I didn’t see this post. I assume the person was joking, right?

  • gossiphound

    @Merlin: The only thing that would be earth shattering is Gerry announces he is coming out of the closet………..with a new wardrobe.

    Yes what are the point of any of these threads.
    Gerry dyes his hair again.
    Gerry changes from shorts to jeans.
    Gerry treats assistant like pack mule.
    Gerry seen texting.
    Gerry shaves.

  • gossiphound

    The point is post it and they will come.

  • Belle

    @gossiphound: Agreed. JJ wants advert money.

  • Nuts

    @Belle:

    Gerry-related disasters that would cause wide-spread panic.

    He accepts the role in the ASIB remake.

    He announces that there will be “The Bounty Hunter II”–The Search for My Career.

    He launches a fashion line.

    He comes out of the closet

    He gets engaged to Blonde Assistant.

    He fathers a child with Jennifer Anniston

    He reveals himself to be a poster on Just Jared

    He retires to Comrie to be spoiled by Mum and breed Corgis.
