    So everyone can enjoy it. I did LMAO Mia!
    From dlisted:
    Billy Ray, Is That You?
    I see Colin Farrell’s comb over and raise you a Gerard Butler’s mullet. I really can’t wait for the pictures of Hugh Jackman with a Jheri curl. Or Jon Hamm with a rattail.
    Anyways, here’s Gerard Butler with a pair of clip-on bangs hanging to the back of his head while strolling around the Michigan set of the movie Machine Gun Preacher.
    The sight of Gerard Butler usually only makes the rate monitor in my private areas jump a few times, but the mullet makes me see him in a whole new light. Cyrus-ized Gerard looks like the type who will disinfect the open sores on his peen with a few splashes of Natty Ice before bending you over the back of an El Camino. Actually now that I think about it, Gerard always looks like that type.

    I am loking at this pic as was sent here b/c friends told me if i want to see my hubby there is a pic of him right here. LOL Sure..close tho.. only thing is my hubby would not wear that chain or hair as long or full. We have both been weekend Harley Davidson riders for yrs. There are so many Harley guys who look just like G, Butler. Nice guys who have a beautiful home they keep up as well as building different outdoor sheds for their bike(s) tools. It’s a fun life especially if the old lady likes to ride her Sporty Harley Davison too. I say thank God for the dble garage where the guys gather on weekends to do their beer buffs. We chics see more asss cracks then we care to. In the end they are all big sucs who need us to be their keepers.

    BTW I luv GB but why is he never with a women except to play flirt.
    And how can you say i was gay for one year?? WHA??!! 1 yr????? That is what he said. LOL
    Does NOT make sense. I would love to see GB serious with a female.

    Who is the stylist on this set? I have never ever everseen a biker wear his hair like that, even back in the 80s. Childers is bald now, he was prolly balding back then. Gerry looks stupid.

    Dlisted comments
    Looks like he belongs in the “werewolf” club on a True Blood episode with those Poison hairdo whorz.

    *ponders the disinfectant qualities of Natty Ice*
    This bloated bozo with yellow teeth always looks like he needs a shower and is about to burp and far.t…..
    Sorry, but I fail to see the appeal.

    So would one of you ***** please do me a favor and tell me why women swoon over this?

    Cuz I am seriously about to place him in that Colin Farrell Overrated Beyond Rationale category.
    I don’t get the appeal of this fella, especially not now after the LA makeover.
    Ahhhh! Wipe away the El Camino!!
    Would hit it while “Achy Breaky Heart” is playing in the background on constant repeat.
    He looks like my dad if my dad were about 75lbs thinner and had more hair.
    “Madness? THIS. IS. TRAILER TRASH!!!!”
    Gerald Butler looks like a typical dude at a bar who watch you let lose and then tells you a story of his life backwards and maybe then invites you a local Motor Inn
    If you decline he politely says its a joke and invites you to Dane Cook’s show in AC that he got tix for free from his other desperate friend who is doing a late shift as limo driver at your local airport
    He is THAT type of guy or a type of guy who works moving trucks and marries his stripper friend cuz she accidentally got prego
    So now she works Costco 9to5 and has a really bad fried perm and extra two pounds on her saddle bags
    Her kid eats bologna sammich like its luxury
    He just looks dirty like that to me… But Ill still let him doggy me wearing a plaid skirt
    Hey a*shole youre
    about 20 years fking late
    to front for
    village people
    he was HOT in “RockNRolla” – dirty but hot – but at this point he’s just dirty. more “sweaty fat” than “dirty hot”.

    until the sequel to “RockNRolla” i’m through with him.

    Gerard is a big ol bowl of ******-douche soup
    holy sh*t, I was just going to post a comment regarding Billy Ray when I had to do a triple check and realized it was GB. *phew*

    guess Says:

    I don’t get it…why so many negative comments?? He is playing a drug dealer biker dude doing some jail time…he isn’t obviously clean shaven or neat looking…get a grip

    This twitter is witty

    Gerard Butler is to an American Accent what Rosie O’Donnell is to femininity.

    gossiphound Says:

    We have some local biker types that STILL wear their hair like that. The bona fide bikers, not the summertime weekend warriors.

    I think it looks hot.

  15. 65
    gossiphound Says:

    I don’t get the negative comments about an actor in costume either – I can only imagine the Colin Farrell comb over thread, what next rumours that Colin is actually bald and Gerry decides he prefers a mullet not that he has a mullet. Movieline agree with me LOL.

  16. 66
    Old Mia Says:

    @gossiphound:I don’t get some of the comments either. They act like this is a new look he’s adopted for real life. Are people that stupid? What’s amusing is that some of the criticisms of his look are exactly the look they are going for for the character. Dirty, bad hair, tough …. yep, that’s the idea.

    lanna Says:

    People are just dumb… Just like the Phannies associated him with the Phantom, a character he played and not someone he is in real life.. same thing is happening with the current movie look now..

    It’s just a role for crying out loud.. I doubt he’s going to walk around with a mullet and biker wear after the cameras cease to roll…

    N. Says:

    I am really looking forward to this movie! Mullet and all. I think this could really be Gerry’s chance to get his acting on and give naysayers a big STFU. :-)

    Manny Says:

    Well he is certainly looking the part of a middle aged biker. A little soft everywhere except the attitude.
    Is it puffed because no one there knows how to blow out curly hair? Hello stylist. Las Vegas Elvis this isn’t.
    I’m still struggling with the pompadour. It doesn’t look slicked back or finger combed back. It looks…teased…layered with Brylcreme and … well… just ridiculous!
    Blondie seems to be doing some good hallucinogens. :P

    lanna Says:

    Well on the bright side at least they got one thing right.. He looks authentic and believable looks wise.. let’s hope that the acting is up to par as well.. and he just may redeem himself after all the rom-com hell he put everyone through!

    Simply Hopeful Says:

    @LauraS: Loved the Celeb*tchy link.. why do I think of “Bad Boys” by Miami Sound Machine ;)

    Thanks GH for posting this!!
    * * *
    Don’t get the negativity of those comments either, this time people should have realized it’s just for the movie… Or maybe, like we feared, his antics are really influencing people’s opinions even when he’s onset?

  23. 73
    Hmmmmm Says:

    No one can please all of the people all of the time. Some were flapping their lips awhile back that he hasn’t really gotten into a role in a long time. Now, he pretty much has the look of this character perfect and they’re b.itching because he doesn’t look clean, pretty and cut? Maybe he should only do dramas where the hero can look handsome and dashing so he won’t offend anyone who wants to keep him up on the Phantom pedestal. What a bunch of idiots.

    Karen Says:

    I’m looking forward to this movie. One site I was reading today has its release date as Sept. 11, 2011. Has anyone here any idea what his next project will be? I’m sure something is in the works. I remember how his announcement about Coriolanus seemed to come from out of the blue.

    wondering Says:

    can someone explain why are so called haters POTO fans??? or are they M.Crawford or even J.Aniston fans?..sometimes I wonder
