Gerard Butler: Rebel with a Cause

Gerard Butler: Rebel with a Cause

Gerard Butler walks and talks on his cell phone while out and about on Sunday afternoon (July 18) in Detroit, Mich.

The 40-year-old Scottish stud was taking a quick break from shooting his latest movie, Machine Gun Preacher. (He plays a former gang biker and drug dealer who becomes a member of the Assembly of God church.)

Gerry wore a Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup Champions hat as well as a t-shirt with the word “REBEL” emblazoned on the front of it paired with PRPS Barracuda Jeans.

    @Fritz the Boxer:

    Yes! The strut, a cap, a t-shirt, torn jeans, and a cell-phone at his ear.

    It’s the “look!”

    at least he’s not wearing the famous c*ck hat but would someone please buy this man a decent pair of jeans?
    Good morning JJers!

    kp hearts butler Says:

    Believe it or not, the weirdest thing….I had a dream about Butler talkin to me wearing that “c*ck” hat…and I was like who the hell is this guy?
    Was really weird…..anyway…..I hope he’s washed it since, cause we did dirty things….
    Obvi I’m kidding….
    Point is, Butler doesn’t care about repeats, clothes, etc, which proves to me, he’s not gay…???

    Yes, the title of this thread is really bad. First Butler picks his teeth, and now Butler walks down the street and so he is a rebel with a cause.

    Ugh is right.

    @ugh: For experts in this field, you are so wrong. Nothing stupid at all. This is about the legs. LOL.

    I just got home and we’re having a storm, lightning but no rain yet. And that’s what my yard needs. The grass is turning to hay in all this heat.

    I don’t think I’m going back to the other thread to read what I missed today. I looked quickly and didn’t see any real news. I saw the article and video from Melvindale at work tonight. (Don’t tell the boss)

    In fact, I think I’m going to shut down my computer because of the lightning. Don’t want to lose my G connections. See you tomorrow.

    Oh, quickly, did anyone look at WO today? Seems Diane got in hot water with one of her people for not mentioning her in her MGP set report. The cohort is upset because she did all the work to locate where G would be at any given second and Diane didn’t mention her. More of the old ‘who loves G more and who puts in more time and who gets the credit because he’s reading this for sure and should love me more’ stuff.

    Question Says:

    What’s on his shirt under ‘rebel’ that has to be blanked out?

    This guy is sure no slave to fashion. I’ve seen him in his Colorado T in practically every planet on god’s green earth. That thing must be ready to fall apart. Love him for that. In RL, he could care less about what he’s wearing. Is that Scot’s cheap? Then when he gets freebies from the big fashion houses he’s all done up like a fashionista. So, guess I vote for Scot’s cheap. Love him.

    Really JJ? It’s a Rebel Yell brand tshirt. The word rebel refers to the brand, not Gerry and his “cause” (aka phone).

    Whoever asked, I don’t think anything is blanked out on the shirt. I think it is part of the design.

    XOXOXO Says:

    My money is on the fact that he got caught singing like a teenager …yet again, with twenty somethings. So a new thread about nothing new surfaces to cancel out the old one. Nothing new here.He stands to lose a lot over his sheer silliness. Maybe he really isn’t as smart as I gave him credit for.

    thumbs Says:

    Why do individual posters have to specifically post a comment about them getting a thumbs up or thumbs down on a previous comment?
    No one cares – except them. Theypoint out their post and the response —like “look at me! look at me! Why did someone thumb me…..???!!! NO ONE CARES! YOU SHOULDN”T EITHER. You aren’t that important – and neither are the thumbs.

    Just looking Says:

    I doubt it. There were more older folks than young ones at the club – just look at the pictures. Also, someone tweeted that her aunt was holding hands at the club with Gerard Butler and Demi Moore. Therefore, i don’t think he was caught singing with or picking up 20-somethings and that’s not the reason for the new thread.
    Anyway, most 20-soemthings don’t do Karaoke.

  33. 33
    whatever Says:

    Most 20 somethings don’t do karaoke?
    Are you kidding? What a stupid thing to say to justify your opinion.
    I think Gerry looked like an attention ***** in those karaoke pics…XOXOXO may be right that the new thread is to take away from Gerry’s clubbing and bar behavior when he isn’t on set.

    gypsie from pokipsee Says:

    O my goodness, I just clicked on the link above because I didn’t really know who Gerard Butler was. And no I don’t live under a rock .Can I just say that I think it is ok to follow a movie star but I do think SOME people are creepy when they stalk him or have conventions about him.

    To me a fan is one thing but some of his fans are borderline crazy. The more I investigate this Butler guy the more I feel he has some really, really psycho women following his every move. Some websites even have his butt posted on them!.

    Okay my rant is over, I think I will find some other guy to follow. Jon Hamm or Mark Strong. I don’t think I am nuts or delusional enough to sign up on one of his fansites! I will probably be crucified for posting this comment here. IJMHO

    Actually, since looking at it again (to make sure I was thinking of the right picture), I do realise its not Laurie at all. The girl in the pic has T & A and Laurie has neither of those.

    sukar Says:

    I hate to go on, but this is a repetition of the photo of her kissing him which surfaced a month ago and everyone was saying that it is not her and does not even look like her and it is the Israeli model and in the end it turned out to be Laurie. It’s the same story. The girl in the Kareoke photo is I hate to say it 100% Laurie.

    Florida Gal Says:

    Concerning conventions being held in Gerry’s name….most people only know of the GALS convention that is held every year – for the past five years – in Las Vegas. But every two years there is a US Convention as well as a World Convention, that is held in Glasgow, Scotland. This past year, there were seven world conventions held simultaneously in Glasgow, NYC, LA, Seattle, Chicago, Vancouver, and Japan, all under the same umbrella of both charity conventions as well as a birthday celebration for Gerry’s 40th birthday. There have also been conventions held in Colorado in the past, and there are also other conventions held for him in other parts of the world from time to time (Australia, Spain). All of them are to raise money for Gerry’s favorite charities that he supports – Kids Kicking Cancer and Clic Sargent, as well as the one held yearly by GALS in Las Vegas targets other charities and all have made tons of money for those charities. Gerry has made many, many really nice comments about all of his conventions and all the money made for his charities, and he’s very proud of all of them. Gerry’s fans are the best in the world, and he know this, and he also is very complimentary to his fans in interviews and very appreciative of all they do for him, as well as for his charities. He often has matched penny for penny all that has been raised for charities by his fans, and in fact, did so this past year for the GALS convention, he matched the money they raised. He is well aware of everything his fans do in his name, and he always acknowledges it. And even though he doesn’t make appearances at the conventions (he did at one GALS convention), he always calls in. Most people have no idea what this man is all about, they only know what they read in the tabloids and places like this…there is so much more to him than meets the eye. I imagine I’ll get torn to shreads over that last statement. I don’t know him personally, but I do read and I do listen, and I do pay attention to what he says (instead of what others say), and I have followed this man’s career now for over five years, and if people would pay attention, instead of jumping to conclusions, you might find that he’s quite different from what the media has painted him to be, sensationalized him to be. Like I said above, there is more to him than meets the eye…and those who are unwilling to see that, or unwilling to truly find out TRUE facts about the man, well, that’s their loss…not his…and certainly not his fan’s loss. So, take your shots at me…I can take it…

    Now Then Says:


    So Sukar if it is Laurie how pathetic that she’s the only one up dancing to ber boyfriend singing LOL – we are seeing all these tweets but not one person is saying he is there with anyone in particular. I know chances are he’s always out in a crowd and might not be over affectionate but there are enough “known” fans in Detroit who would have spotted her. If it does turn out to be her we shall all bow down to you LOL

    It’s a big read….there are several pages to look up about him on the right side at the link. I haven’t read all of them, since I’m not soooo into astrology.

    Pat Says:

    FYI, Ginger…..I visited the Melvindale, MI set last week. And after all morning and half the afternoon on set….even doing motorcycle scenes…he came over to us and gave us a hug. He smelled WONDERFUL…..not smelly as you suggested! We had seen him come on set at 8a and he waved to us, got out of the SUV and told us he’d see us later. He remembered at 2p when they broke for lunch and came right over to us and gave us that hug. He really cares for his fans and shows it!

  64. 64
    Florida Gal Says:

    @Merlin: Just for your FYI, Merlin…the last one held last October was at the Thistle Hotel in Glasgow….I was there for 6 glorious days, and it was wonderful….why you people mock and make fun of something like this, is beyond me. There is a reason for all of it, and it’s all good, productive, and proactive, and show that there ARE people who see beyond themselves and truly care for other people. I’m very proud of the fact that I am a fan and supporter of this wonderful man and all he stands for. As I said before, there is so much more to him that what any of you seem to want to see. If you would just make an attempt to truly get your facts straight on him, and read about the REAL man, instead of what the tabloids concoct and embellish on him to be (which 99-44/100% of is fabricated nonsense…then maybe you would gain a whole new respect for him as a person, and not continue to trash him at every possible opportunity. Shout “fangurl” to me if you want to, but I’m on the side of right here, where Gerry Butler is concerned, and I go by FACTS, not FICTION, and I consider myself very lucky to have someone of his caring, intelligent, and above all, integrity, to support and be a fan of. He has done nothing to warrant any of the bashing that you people continually give him. And, by FACTS, not FICTION, is also not guilty of 99% of the stuff you all accuse him of. Like I said, read up, from REAL articles, not tabloid/gossip rag trash, and listen up, to interviews from him, as well as from costars and those close to him. You may change your mind, if you have a half-way decent and compassionate mind to change.

    Well, as so many ladies insist on him smelling WONDERFUL, maybe he should launch his own perfume? I already found the right flask: Other suggestions are highly welcome!

    @Peacesister: Who would want to smell like sweat and ***?

    I won’t ever change my mind because I felt on my skin what phannie idiocy is. So NO, THANKS is what I’ve to say to you and all the deranged people who met there to talk for 6 days about a person they’ll never know and even if you met him..well, it was just for 30 seconds when he was signing an autograph.
    * * *
    FYI we have conventions too and we’re planning to meet one day…
    very soon I hope, but with no fuss, no public ads and anything else.
    Just to share a laugh, all our different cultures, maybe to talk about us, our dreams, our hopes.
    I find it’s basically stupid to hold a convention (whether it’s in Las Vegas or Glasgow it doesn’t matter) in honor of someone you only know throught tabloids and movies (so what you see is just his art and a very good imitation of life).
    * * *
    By the way, thank you for the info about the hotel in Glasgow, the Scottish branch of our club will keep an eye open in case you decide to have another conv… we’d really like to have more laughs (after the Las Vegas vid I’m still rolling on the floor only thinking of it…)
    * * *
    Hugs anyway.. to each his own, right?

    In other news…

    Why such a bad set of “extras” on THB DVD. I was hoping for a commentary…or some gag reels. Pretty lame stuff.

    Seriously…there’d better be solid DVD extras for “Coriolanus” and MGP.

    @Old Mia: Your story about WOGBF is wrong, the woman who complained has started up her own board and she did not share her legwork because she was only going to share that with her board members. It did not matter anyways because Misty Mills who was filming with Gerry that day is a member of that board, so who do you think had the best information?

    I am just catching up but did you see this twitter from the actress from Detroit 187 a new TV series filming there sounds like Gerry ran into the whole crew last night.

    gossiphound Says:

    Oops here is the twitter
    Twitter: Between my random meeting with Gerard Butler last night and my research visit to the morgue today, it’s shaping up to be a good birthday!

    The Tweeter is Erin Cummings an actress on a new TV series called Detroit 187 which is currently filming in of course Detroit and she and the whole cast were out last night and looks like they ran into Mr. Butler. She is quite his type as well, just saying.

    Who said Laurie is holed up in the hotel? She’s probably siteseeing while he’s filming.


    I agree with you regarding her legs but her hips look terrible in that famous photo where she’s modeling the black bikini. Also what cherubic face? Her face is not pretty at all and her hair is very thin, which is weird because I think she is Middle Eastern and most ME women have thick hair.

    Oh my. Guess it was crazy here in the wee small hours of the morning. Of course my a.m. is someone else’s afternoon or evening, so who knows where the trolls were coming from. There wasn’t even a full moon.

    I don’t think Laurie photographs well at all. She just has that kind of a face, but she looks much better in videos. She seems to have a good sense of humor and isn’t afraid to laugh at herself. Maybe that’s why she and G are friends? Note I said ‘friends.’ I have no idea if it’s anything more than that. To me she seems more of a real person than some of the Barbies he’s been seen with.

    Old Mia Says:

    @Sukar: She’s not a beauty to me either. But, she’s not ugly either IMO. I don’t care if he dates a beauty in the traditional sense or not. I’d rather see him with someone who does something in life rather than the model types he’s been attracted to in the past.

    I’m kind of starting to believe that Laurie keeps popping up not because people hope Gerry is happy in a relationship but because you want someone to talk about.

    Fiera Says:

    Just to clarify some stuff…

    Everyone on WOGBF had the same info as everyone else as far as where he’d be when. It’s not like I sat there the whole time on the phone with anyone from there. Nobody was ‘mad’ at not being included in the post in question, she just didn’t know why she wasn’t mentioned, which is explained in that whole thread if anyone read it.

    I found out about WOGBF when they came across my friend’s blog, then my blog, put 2 and 2 together and realized the movie mentioned in my blog was in fact MGP and posted a link to my blog. The entries don’t even say the name of the movie or the star since I was writing more about the experience and journey than about who and what it was, if that makes sense.

    I just feel the need to set that straight. Everyone that went that day (and I’m sure every other day) waited for hours in the blazing hot sun together, nobody had special ‘insider information’ or anything. We spent most of the time in the bar where nobody could see us anyway and I can’t just whip out my cell phone in the middle of a scene.

    With six feature films filming right now, plus a TV series and some other things in preproduction, it’s not surprising that actors are running into each other left and right. It’s to be expected, this isn’t THAT big of a town.

    During filming, he didn’t have any women there with him, so I can’t really say anything about whether he does or does not have someone here with him in town. All I know is that when he was on set, he was working and honestly, that’s all I care about.

    Oh get real. I am the only one here who called all of Gerry’s girls beautiful while everyone else ripped them. I didn’t say I was hot and I did not say Laurie is ugly.

    Old Mia Says:

    @Sukar: Craigy must not have been around on the days when people were throwing all sorts of insults at Laurie. To say she isn’t beautiful is mild compared to what went on when they were being seen together. But it happens any time he’s pictured with someone he might be dating. Anyone who really dates G has to be prepared.

    You are right, never post any personal info on a gossip site. That’s the only advantage the fan sites offer their members, people can personal message each other. That also happens on IMDb.

    @whatever: Especially after his behavior on the set of his last movie. The media is meant to sway the viewer (public) …always has been, always will be. In my opinion, they are trying to keep his behavior under wraps. Probably, explains the “Oh, sh*t, I’m caught” look on his face (in the pic). If you were around for the thread(s) when he was filmlng Corn and his Belgrade escapades …the comments about him weren’t very flattering …to say the least. They’re probably trying to prevent a repeat.

There were not any babies in the crowd at the bar. Everyone looked to be adults. In my town we have summer concerts and even people in their 70s show to sing along with the bands and dance. Some of the older ones are better dancers than the youn

Were you there that you know that he was having a good time with a bunch of “older” people? That’s not what I got from the photo. Its been my experience that people in their late 20′s through say … early 40′s don’t jump on stage and sing on a regular basis. Usually, its for fun and very random. I’ve even done it myself.

    Oh Erin Cummings played the wife of Spartacus, Sura, who is now dead, ordered killed by that evil Batiatus. Glad to see she got picked up for a new series. Though with the planned prequel, might she get some more work? Or too late.

    Regarding the smoochy photos, this is the most curious thing. The only places where the photos of the Cannes fling appear are one fuzzy shot on New of the World in UK, not sure if they scooped Voici or what, and in the hard copy of the magazine Voici, I can’t recall the date of the issue.

    You have to go to one of the fansites that has the scan of the two page spread from European peeps who were able to buy the magazine.

    Now doesn’t it seem very odd that a scoop like that has not spread far and wide over the internet – even photos of that woman Gerry was talking to in front of the Four Seasons had some traction media wise, Eugenia whatever. Gerry kissing randoms in the streets of Serbia went global. Even the outlets that had the exclusive on the “first date” eventually released the photos but did not pick up this second “story”.

    You can understand that if you have an exclusive you won’t release the photos until your issue had its run, but why would Voici or whoever owned the rights to the photos, not sell the photos after their issue had its run to make more money off the story unless……

    His behavior in the past has been a lot worse than it seems here. I know many people who love to sing and will get up at any age and sing Karaoke. I myself don’t only because my dog sings better. What used to get me was not the partying as much but the things you would here along with the partying. Ted on E! said several times that Gerry had visited the E! building and actually randomly grabbed women and kissed them. That seems odd and self absorbed no matter what age or who you are. I think someone single like Gerry might get bored staying at home all of the time. Especially sitting in a hotel room on days off from the set. I don’t fault him because of his age, I fault him because some things he does are stupid no matter what age.

    @Oldfurniture: Now see, I know people in their “early 40′s” and they, most of the time, just sit back and enjoy the show.

    Just to clarify, everyone should enjoy and live life on their own terms. With GB, he is a public figure and he KNOWS this. His public behavior is how people will perceive him. Sad, but true. He really needs this movie to work out, probably for many reasons. I would like to see him put out a good movie …its been awhile. I’m not saying that he shouldn’t have fun and live his life, but he only had to lay low until after filming this movie. It just makes me question how seriously he takes his career. Like I said before, the pics speak for themselves.

    gossiphound Says:

    I guess some people have not enjoyed the karaoke experience which almost requires that if you want to sing you have to humiliate yourself on stage or some platform that puts all eyes on you, done it myself and see PS I Love You.. It is a pretty benign way to enjoy oneself and Gerry’s never made it a secret that he loves karaoke. Less sleazy than nightclubbing. Good on him.

    angel Says:

    Some actors just seem to take their craft a bit more seriously. Mickey Rourke went to a Russian prison to pick an accent and the vibe of those guys to star on a mindless summer blockbuster.
    Gerry worked his a** off when training for 300 and to this day, that is his biggest hit. He has said it himself he wouldn’t be sure if given the opportunity, he’d go through that again. Understandable, it’s a big physical change, and not just research. However, from what at least I’ve seen so far, he doesn’t seem to put that much effort in preparation for his roles, no matter what they are.
    I could be wrong but I get the idea he enjoys his celebrity as much as he enjoys acting, if not more. No real artist is so into that HW bullsh*t as much as he seems to be. You might play with it and take advantage of it throughout your career, but to actually live it is a whole different deal.
    No surprise his films have lacked critical acclaim. Maybe things will turn around with these two new movies but I’m not holding my breath. Sadly enough.

I really would like to know the things you mentioned you have read and heard that are facts about what a nice person he is, we do have people post about their chance encounters who share that he was very nice and down to earth kinda of guy. But again that is it, what can you share that would be new information shedding light on his person.

    I also am not totally convinced that the negative pics/womanizing/famewhoring is all the media fault. This guy loves the limelight and has shown to be able to be seen or not seen when he wants. Am I wrong about this?

    What are you a mind reader? Do you know what they are trying to prevent or not? What he did in Coriolanus didn’t hurt his image one bit; if anything it kept him in the tabloids. Again, he is not breaking any laws and he has a right to live his life his way. You are way too cynical.

    @hellotheregb: ….facts about what a nice person he is…

    Absolutely agree with you. I’d love to know for certain that G is the nice man many of his fans claim him to be. But so far I have no way to know it with certainty. Not reading or listening to his interviews or what other actors/directors/crew members tell about him. Perhaps his close family /friends know how the real Gerry is, and even them could be surprised by the man himself one day. He’s kind with his fans? yes. But like anybody else he can pretend and wear a polite mask in social events. He’s an actor, and a good one when he choses to…We’d never know when he’s acting or being his real self.

    Jennifer: At least my hair looks great you look like Frankenstein in picnic cloth.
    Gerry: That really hurt.
    Jennifer: Ah I’m sorry Gerbear.

    It is, isn’ t?!

    I thought I would bring it up since it seems to be a very historic name with regards to the nobility in Ireland… Among the many distinguished Butler family members was also Irish poet William Butler Yeats…

    Maybe Gerry should play Yeats after all and not Burns!! LOL

    I was in Birimingham Michigan on Saturday and passed by the Tallulah Wine Bar where Gerard was spotted recently. Birmingham is a nice place to go out. Hope to have the opportunity to run into him, like most of the other women in Michigan I am sure. Thought I spotted someone who resembled him standing outside of the Townsend Hotel but it was probably just a mirage (i.e. we are having hot temps.).

    However, no one has really verified where he is staying and the only two options appear to be the Townsend Hotel where many top athletes and celebrities who are in town stay or the Westin Book Cadillac which also caters to this clientele.

    I have been to Black Finn in Royal Oak, the other place Gerard was spotted at and it is a very preppy bar in my opinion.

    How did that chick Laurie Cholewa or whatever her name is make it onto this thread? Did someone spot Gerry with her? I couldn’t make it through all of the comments to find out if that is the case. Are their photos or video of them in Michigan together?

    Thanks to anyone who can provide an answer.

    There is absolutely no proof that LC is in Detroit, not even a hint, yes must be the heat.

    I have not heard definitively where Gerard is staying. The Westin was the one name I heard from others the first night he had arrived in Detroit and since he had dinner with Sam Childers at the Grille 24? that night which is part of the Westin hotel, that seemed like a good bet. But haven’t heard anything since. He may even be renting a house out in Royal Oak since he seems to like it out there and he has preferred houses to hotels in the past.

    Tonto Says:

    I think trying to verify LC as being in Detroit of all places is futile to say the least. How many women has he been photographed with in the last five years? I think we all know by now that he doesn’t do commitments or at least not for the long haul. When and if he decides to link up with someone, it won’t be photographed and seen in a tabloid mag or any where else. Wanting him to be romantically involved with some one doesn’t mean it’s real. Give Laurie a rest and let her live her life and let Butler live his life, otherwise you are just wishing on a star. Pun intended.

    Category: Interviews
    Article Date: February 9, 2002 | Publication: The Herald (Glasgow) | Author: Teddy Jamieson
    Posted by: admin

    You get your Kicks walking in front of cars. but what do you do if that’s not enough? you go to hollywood

    The couch is worrying. Its pale green bulk fills a fair portion of the intimate back room, little more than a snug, in London’s Soho House where I’m to talk to Gerry Butler. Sit down on it and you begin to sink. And then keep sinking. I’m convinced that if I sit back in it I’m not going to be able to get back out again. So for an hour I sit nervously on the edge of the cushion, fearful of getting in too deep. The story of my life, you could say. When Butler arrives, though, he throws himself down into the depths of the couch without hesitation. Which, pop psychologists might suggest, is the story of his.

    Butler – Gerry to his friends, Gerard to his mother (and actress Izabella Scorupco: “She has such a sexy, husky voice I let her get away with it,” he says) – is the new Scottish superstar with a wild past, the 32-year-old Glaswegian who gave up a legal career to chance his arm as an actor and lucked out big time in Hollywood. With a major Hollywood feature film in the can and another on the way, Butler could be officially tagged as the next best thing if he hadn’t already been called that 12 months ago. This time last year he was being touted as the new Ewan McGregor after landing the lead in Wes Craven’s millennial version of Dracula. The problem was that the film turned out to be a poor advert for his talents, giving him the chance to do little more than flash his teeth and torso at the camera. And with nothing else on show in 2001, audiences could have been forgiven for thinking so much for that.

    Fortunately for Butler, Dracula 2001 has proved more of a false start than a dead end. Later this year he can be seen fighting fire-breathing dragons with Izabella Scorupo, Matthew McConaughy and Christian Bale in the fantasy adventure Reign of Fire directed by Rob Bowman. He has pulled out of Renny Harlin’s serial killer thriller Mindhunters but come March he starts filming the lead in the much-delayed adaptation of Michael Crichton’s time travel fantasy Timeline. Twelve months from now we will probably be able to drop the next from next big thing. “I almost feel scared to acknowledge what’s going on in LA,” he admits.

    There is an almost childish glee when he discusses his upward career direction. Timeline will be directed by Richard (Lethal Weapon) Donner. “He’s such fun to work with,” Butler gushes. “He’s one of the all-time great directors and he’s made six movies with Mel Gibson at the helm and now I’m at the helm. I’m sitting having lunch with him a few months ago, sitting in the most amazing house in the Hollywood Hills and I just thought I remember watching Lethal Weapon when I was a teenager in Glasgow. Now I’m sitting with Richard Donner having lunch as we talk about me and how we’re going to do this ginormous studio movie, Paramount’s tentpole movie for next Christmas.”

    Before all this, though, Butler is making a rare appearance on the small screen as part of the ensemble cast of ITV’s new Sunday night drama The Jury, the reason for this afternoon’s conversation in the clubbable surroundings of the Greek Street hostelry. Soho House is a venue around which actorly types tend to congregate. What’s her name from Playing the Field is sitting at a window table when I come in, while our waitress has a part in Michael Caine’s current movie Last Orders. Butler obviously feels at home. He comes into the room in a hurry, coffee in hand, cigarette in mouth, chatting with his PA and flirting with the staff. He happily sinks into the sofa’s billowy depths and begins to talk. Actually babble might be a more accurate description. Words and ideas tumble out of him pell-mell. He will start a sentence but before finishing jump on to the next one. His favourite words are “fantastic” and “beautiful”. At one point he tells me he loves London because it has this “really cool vibe” to it. His vocabulary is pure stoner, but he rattles it out at amphetamine pace, his Scottish accent still very much intact.

    His style today is terrace casual. All Pringle jumper and jewellery – necklace, rings and bracelet – hair tousled, beard fashionably unkempt. You could describe him, as The Jury’s press notes say of his character, as having “stereotypical good looks”. Knocking back an iced mineral water (he stopped drinking four years ago) he is immediately friendly and unguardedly open. The Jury – a court drama which also features Anthony Sher, Derek Jacobi and Mark Strong – sees him take a rare break from cinema, but he is pleased with the result. “I can honestly say I have on many occasions had to talk things up and feel embarrassed about doing that but I wholeheartedly think this is a wonderful TV series,” he says.

    The programme has, he admits, all sorts of resonances for him. Before turning to acting he spent seven unhappy years pursuing a legal career. Filming in the Old Bailey hasn’t left him regretting that decision. “Pretty much any brush with legality confirms my conviction that I should never have been a lawyer. One, I didn’t give a **** and two I wasn’t that good.”

    Perhaps it is appropriate then that Butler’s character, Johnnie Donne, one of the 12 titular jurors, is a man fresh out of rehab and still raw from the experience. Butler has said he can relate to some of the more negative aspects of Donne’s character. He has in the past admitted to having been overly fond of a drink at one time in his life, with painful consequences. In fact, he has said that without experiencing real low points including battling with alcoholism, he would not have been able to play Donne.

    Butler is rather taken aback when I remind him of this comment. “I didn’t realise I’d put it as strongly as that,” he says, obviously disconcerted. “But yeah I was a party animal through uni and when I came out of uni I found that difficult to stop.”

    Unhappy at work, he pursued a hedonistic agenda. He talks now of the insiduous, slow process that overtook him in his twenties. “It’s a very addictive thing, nightlife and everything that goes with that for some people, for the less-well adjusted like myself. You start to go out a lot, drink a lot and do all sorts of crap and then life, when you’re not doing that, becomes very boring. You start to develop this uneasy feeling, you can’t concentrate, you’re not as contented as you used to be.” It’s a constant search for the next buzz? “Yeah. Exactly. You look for the buzz in everything.”

    That search led him to taking huge risks. “I was nuts. I think the perfect comparison would be an untalented Jim Morrison. I lived like Jim Morrison.” He talks of hanging off tall buildings and even a cruise ship. “Just crazy stuff that was part bravado and part coming from a deep-seated frustration and a sense of being lost. And you’d go out and there’s a part of your soul and your mind that knows this is not what you should be doing, and yet there is a part of you that thinks you’re never going to change. So when you’re drunk all this anger and frustration comes out and sometimes it’s hidden as ‘Hey, watch this boys. I’m going to throw myself in front of a car.”‘

    It sounds as if his drinking was a symptom of a wider malaise. Where all that anger came from he doesn’t say, but it seems it has been with him for some time. “I always felt a bit of a loner in some ways. Even though at school I was one of the main guys in the crowd I always felt a wee bit different. Maybe sometimes better, but a lot of the time just f***ing weirder. Sometimes worse. Just thinking, when am I going to get it together?”

    It is tempting to look for the origins of Butler’s insecurity in his family background. Born in Glasgow, he moved with his parents and his older brother and sister to Montreal at the age of two only to return to Paisley within two years when his parents split, a result of his father’s own drinking. His mother raised her three children on her own, although she eventually remarried. When Butler was 16 his father suddenly reappeared. “I literally walked into my house and my stepdad said ‘keep your jacket on your dad’s here’,” he recalls. “We hadn’t heard from him for 12 years and I had to walk into a restaurant and I had to walk round all these tables and I was literally like, is that my dad at that table? Is that him over there? And it just makes you appreciate as a person and as an actor how some things, they just don’t show. I think as an actor when you start out you just want to show everything and then you realise so much of your pain or happiness is concealed. When I sat down in front of my dad I didn’t realise it was such a huge concern to me but I couldn’t talk for the next four hours, I couldn’t stop crying, I could barely breathe and I didn’t know all that pent-up sadness was in there. At the end of the day that was the man who fathered me and he suddenly turned up.”

    Understandably, the night is etched on his memory. He has talked about it before, but his description is no media soundbite. He can’t keep the catch out of his voice while telling it again. At the same time that evident desire to take something positive from such painful memories is telling. He is now keen to put a positive spin on his personal history. “It’s only recently that I’ve started to think that everything I am, good and bad, is what makes me. Instead of fighting all the bad and just being so unhappy. That’s just me, that’s just the way I am. I am not saying I’m going to try to improve but there is a level of acceptance. I’m doing well and I’m doing well because of who I am.”

    His father died of cancer a month before Butler started a two-year law traineeship. He spent the last three weeks by his father’s side before returning to Glasgow for the course. At the end of it he wised up to the fact the law was not for him and headed for London looking to fulfil his teenage dreams of acting, a fantasy that is now becoming reality.

    It is difficult to reconcile the picture of insecurity Butler paints of his past with the handsome, brash, friendly man who sits beside me. Perhaps it can be put down to what he admits is his nature. “I’m a very extreme person. So I either drink far too much or I don’t at all, or I smoke far too much or I don’t at all. Or I have sex with hookers all the time …”

    He’s kidding. That’s Jamie Theakston’s line. Smoking is now his only vice and he’s giving that up next week, condemning it to the past along with his other anxieties. “So much of that insecure, fearful **** has gone away,” he says. “I feel so much more at home in my own skin now.”

    He is, he says, very driven. When he began to get parts in the US he made a conscious decision to move there, spending most of the last two years, when not filming, in Los Angeles. “I am kind of living there right now,” he says. “I find I get a lot done and beautiful things happen to me there careerwise. You’re next door to the directors. Here you end up putting yourself on tape, there you just walk in and you’re speaking to Ridley Scott.”

    He doesn’t much like LA – “life there is very focused and kind of miserable”- which is why he’s looking for a flat in Hampstead, London, to replace the “******” one he owns in Camden. But, of course, the work he wants is in LA, even though he says he is “material-led”. Indeed one of the attractions of The Jury was that it was a character piece. “Doing a huge action movie there’s a lot of sitting about. I mean, the more fun a movie looks, often the less the fun it is to make. If it’s a character based piece you get the chance to dive in there and get involved.”

    So why opt for the big-budget spectacular? Time travel and dragons are not quite Shakespeare. But he remains unrepentant. The British film industry, he reckons, has an undeservedly high conceit of itself. “To be honest, in Britain we write so many awful movies. We do some great ones and they stick out and everybody thinks, don’t we do great movies?, but they don’t see the hundred other **** scripts that come through the door, some of which are made into movies, a couple of which I’ve done in the past.” But that, with help from Rob Bowman and **** Donner, will be where they remain, consigned to memory along with the insecurities that seemed to have bothered Butler for so long.

    Our time is up and Butler pulls himself out of the depths of the couch with ease, ready to pose for the camera and the next tranche of Ewan McGregor comparisons. Soon he is hoping such comparisons will be redundant. Indeed he has just beaten McGregor in some Scottish award ceremony, even if, he suspects, by default. “I know for a fact everybody was going: ‘We can’t give Ewan another award. I don’t know who this Gerry Butler guy is but we might as well give it to him.’ Because I know in terms of the business I’m doing very well in LA. In Hollywood, things couldn’t be better. In terms of Scotland nobody’s seen what I’ve done.” That is about to change. Or did we say that a year ago?

    I think the Men’s Health Journal article just reported what he observed and what was coming out of Gerry’s mouth without a lot of his own judgment on the matter and one would certainly come to that conclusion, but it’s been a while since I read it and I only remember the words coming out of Gerry’s mouth and being very late for his next appointment.

    I don’t know where that one came from, but it’s not the official one. This one, from Dragon, is wonderfully detailed and the resemblance to Gerry is uncanny. Every detail of his face is spot on, and his hair is thicker, darker, and more realistic than this other figure is.

    Funtospec Says:

    @Get real: I think Gerry is in a relationship. He tries to kiss women in public to avoid incorrect speculation that might affect his career and personal life. The Serbian blond he kissed for the photographers and allowed her to speak about a “relationship” to the press to deflect the press from his involvement Laurie. He kissed the planted violin girl to deflect the Aniston smoke. He is behaving more so in Detroit either because he is more cautious or in a relationship. He looks happy and spoke of s*** as heaven. He is probably having good chemistry with someone (Laurie?). All you people are so caught up in her looks cannot fathom she may have major chemistry with the man. If we all thought superficial, all men would only chase, go out with and marry models.

    Laurie is a model. There are plenty of photos of her modeling stuff on the net. She’s not really a rocket scientist. But yes I do think she is in a relationship with Gerry. I think it is just hard for people here to swallow.

    Sukar Says:


    Didn’t someone here say that she doesn’t have a Masters in Law but a prerequisite degree that you need if you want to enroll in law school? Anyway, I do agree with you, looks are not everything. Charisma and personality are extremely important. I am just curious how they will do the long distance thing. If she has two shows starting in September does that mean that she can’t move to the US to be with him?

    Tonya Says:

    Really, who wants to see him kissing. You women must not have men in your lifes. I Hope he just gets his career on track with a good movie.

    That’s what he needs to focus, not requests for him to be seen out in public. His PR person needs to be fired.

    angel Says:

    This is getting really tiresome. What’s hard to swallow is the same thing being discussed over and over again by some posters and their incessant imposing on something that’s PURE speculation on said poster’s part. Whether people agree or not, doesn’t make it more true. People know nothing and tabloids hardly tell us like it is. Just because some are skeptical and a bit more realistic when it comes to GOSSIP, doesn’t mean they have to swallow sh*t.

  231. 231
    Sukar Says:


    I didn’t mean to say that I am right and everyone else is wrong. But the idea of Gerry being in a relationship is a bit difficult for people to take. One reason is the fact that many of his fans are jealous of any GF and the other is that he has been such a manw…hore in the past few years that it is hard for people to believe that he has settled down.

    @Sukar: I’m sorry Sukar, it may not be what you mean, but that’s how it comes across. In every other post, that’s what you seem to be talking about. I understand that some people have a hard time dealing with the idea of him and someone being serious, but on the other hand you seem to want to pair him up at any cost. Again, that’s just how it comes across and it may not be what you mean at all but then saying you think it’s hard for people to swallow? Well, I’m sure it’s hard for some to swallow a lot of things said here. This is hardly a fan site and I think the great majority here have very realistic views when it comes to him. It’s a free and public forum and therefore you have the right to post whatever you like, whether people agree or not. Some things just get repetitive and meaningless after a while, that’s all. We all just have to learn to agree to disagree without sounding like we’re trying to impose our impressions as the truth. Just my opinion.

    Can we move on?

    It truly doesn’t matter if he has one or several girlfriends…or fwbs…whatever. No one seemed to fixate on the beautiful brunette who was photographed eating lunch with Gerry and his folks at an outdoor cafe in NYC at the time of TBH premiere. He was quite ticked at the paps who photographed them, jumped over the little fence and berated them for photographing a private moment. Don’t know who she is, speculation was model Cinthia Moura but could be another beautiful brunette…or a casual date.

    Anyhow, his actions there were more protective about a personal moment.

    Not posed for tabloid/news agency photogs.

    Whatever…can we go on to debate the box office projections for Coriolanus and MGP? What his next project will be? Will he seriously do Broadway (he has considered it in interviews)?
    And, what filming will be like in South Africa…

    The old Laurie/Secret Girlfriend stuff is fruitless. Next week we could see him with a completely different woman…we could get news that Laurie is dating a Paris businessman. It is all just wishful thinking/speculation until we see G out and about publically acknowledging this is MY WOMAN…and not just a photo op.

  235. 235
    Sukar Says:


    Look I apologize if that’s how I come across. I am just saying what I think. He’s behaving like he is in a relationship, that’s all. And I’m not desperate to pair him off at all. I can’t seem to make up my mind about Laurie. Sometimes I like her but there’s something about her that makes me uncomfortable. So it’s not like I am crazy about her.

  236. 236
    Nuts Says:


    Tonya…his PR Team seems to be quite squirrely. They don’t seem to have good focus…and he seems like he is very difficult to reign in at times.

    Coriolanus and MGP could go a long way to reinforce the serious actor imagine and let it overshadow the playboy image. He said in Cannes that he wasn’t exactly Mr. Morality…but this same guy is the one seeking peace and enlightenment from a variety of sources.

    Anyhow, let’s get the Serious Actor vibe going and keep the partying quiet (like others do all the time.)

  237. 237
    angel Says:

    @Nuts: I’m with you there Nuts. On that note, and I may be way off base since it’s a bit early for projections, but I’m thinking Coriolanus being the arthouse film it is, may have a limited distribution and not make bucket loads of money in the end. However, it may bring some lacking critical acclaim for GB, prestige and the chance to get offered better scripts and work with better directors. I think it was a very smart move on his part to be a part of this.
    As for MGP, Marc Forster has directed Finding Neverland, which is a movie I love and got some oscar nominations for it. On top of that, he made the Bond movie, which was a huge box office success. I think MGP will rely a lot on it’s marketing to appeal to audiences, regardless of it’s stars and the story itself, which to me, sounds very interesting and relevant.

    @Sukar: Yes agreed. He is behaving as if he is in a relationship.

    @Nuts: His goal is to be a credible Oscar worthy actor. So, he will probably do Broadway. Gerry’s intention with MGP more Indie award rather than mass appeal/money maker. Marketing can only go so far on this kind of film. He was very enamored at the Slumdog phenomena. Thus a pay cut was necessary from his vantage. Marc Forster captures gritty and honest film. (i.e. Monster’s Ball and Kite Runner also). This is Gerry’s best chance thus far for his dream.

    @angel: However angel arthouse gets Oscar attention. And the Academy loves Ralph.

    The Bounty Hunter did like 4 times the domestic box office of Hurt Locker but guess which film got Oscars and which film won’t. Now Coriolanus would be lucky indeed to hit 16 million like Hurt Locker, that would be around the top range for the most successful Shakespearean films, the true adaptations, not loosely based on.

    I think Ralph at best is hoping his film can do as well or in the ball park as other Shakespearean films, maybe even a bit better, but more importantly he has to be expecting some critical acclaim from BAFTA and the Academy, a good first directorial debut praise for him and maybe even some acting noms for any of a number of the fabulous actors in this cast including Gerry. You have to think that’s what Gerry’s team is hoping for – at least a nomination so they can say shove that up your **** naysayers.

  261. 261

    @gossiphound: I agree with you. I just said arthouse doesn’t usually get bucket loads of money but this project seemed like a great idea as it could give him an oportunity to get offered better scripts and work with better directors.
    As for the shove it comment, hehe I bet that’s what he’d be praying to say but who can blame the naysayers when we get Bounty Hunter? Ralph is a talented guy and the cast is great. From what we’ve seen it looks like a winner. Let’s just hope it gets the attention it seems to deserve. Hard to call it without seeing the final cut.

    Coriolanus is scheduled to premiere at the Belgrade Film Festival which takes place in January 2011. Since the Serbian government forked over about 4 million [not sure which currency LOL] in financing and/or equivalent provision of services and equipment, it’s the least Ralph could do. But then that means no Oscar consideration until 2012.

    @stupidfansgetsitwrong: He was not charmed by him if it’s the article I remember.

The timing of it and the content of it obviously indicated he wasn’t impressed with him like his fans are.

    @Mellifera: Maybe that’s the one I’m thinking of – Men’s Health. Whoever wrote it, it’s on the record that not “everyone” thinks he is a nice guy and not “everyone” who interviews him thinks he’s so great. Even he admitted he was a diva pain in the tush on the LAC set.

    We should also remember that he punched a photographer, and we have never heard any evidence from real eyewitnesses, except his manager trying to do damage control, and he hit a dog.

    Then there have been countless reports from women who comment about how he makes sleazy comments to them in nightclubs and restaurants. Many of them are disgusted by it.

    The man has told the world he’s “not Mr. Values” and still his phannies, obviously still running on a Baskin Robbins sugar high insist that he’s a perfect saint in all things he does and he never offends or upsets anyone and if he does, it’s their own fault or they don’t have a sense of humor. Their extremist devotion is rivaled only by Rev. Jim Jones’ congregation.

I looked back on some of the posts that really pin him down for creepy stuff, young girls, inappropriate comments to women etc. and wonder if he is still like that, has he changed? Well, I don’t have answers to any of that and am still not willing to except poor behavior even if it is boys will be boys etc.

    It does insult and hurt people when someone is sexually inappropriate and uses you. What has led him in the past to do that I don’t know but he has openly admitted to abusing privilages with women, even physically hurting someone etc.(at least once, if I understood comment clearly, he did show great remorse in that interview when he noted that) Lately, the rose colored glasses seem to have blotted out this entire site. He has never said he is a saint and is even open about not being mr. values lately. ohhh humm. I guess it is the usual with this guy.

    Sukar Says:


    I find some of his more serious interviews very fascinating. I think that this is more of the real Gerry than the vulgar or funny one, not that I will ever know. The couple of interviews for Phantom where he was wearing a black leather jacket and the interview for Dear Franke where he sings “Bonnie”" at the beginning show a very different side to him.

  311. 311
    gossiphound Says:

    @Sukar: That is what makes him fascinating – we all have different sides to ourselves, the erudite to the crude, and with Gerry you never know which side is going to show up. A lot of times the interviewer sets the tone but it still depends on the mood of your subject I imagine.

    I actually enjoy the interviews where the interviewer seems more like a friend and they are hanging out with the subject because that is when you see more of the real persona come through and you either have to be a real friend, which I have seen happen, actors do have friends who are writers or have a knack for getting that guard down. In Gerry’s case the guard is never really up that high if at all so I am sure you’d rather interview someone like that than someone who just spews the PR feed lines every time.

    I have been reading these threads for some time. There are some very intelligent posters on here.

    How many of you consider yourself fans–not phannies? Thanks to the regs for teaching me the difference.
    Are any of you a member of the fan groups?
    There has been a lot of talk about the different fan groups. Do any of you feel that one is more ‘realistic’ than the other?

    Thanks for the interesting conversations.

    The Dorthe Skappel interview is one of my favorites. It does IMO show that he actually knows more about what is said in the press about him than he sometimes is willing to admit. In some interviews, he lets on he doesn’t know about TMZ videos etc. But, I think he and his people actually know pretty much everything that’s out there about him.

    Dusty Says:

    Hey, Stupidfans, All the negative crap you spew about Butler makes me think that he’s probably the perfect guy for you. All the qualities you bring up regarding him seem to fit you too. A lot of the stuff out there about any celeb is generated from a small bit of info that is exaggerated and elaborated on to draw more speculation and innuendo. If you want to buy into it that’s your business. But, when that’s all you can say all the time, it makes you no better than the person you are ragging on or for that matter anyone else. Get over it already! He’s human and God knows he got his problems the same as the rest of us here on planet earth. For once I’d like to see you say something positive when you post here, because I think you are most likely an intelligent person, but when all you have to add to the dialog here is negative and nasty, it’s gets pretty old after a while. Cheer up, kid there are worse people in the world than Butler. He’s not the only rot gut guy out there.

    okay third time I’ve answered this but keep getting an error. It was an interview for PS I Love You and they were laughing about Gerry having a better love life if women didn’t constantly get hurt around him, elaborating on the accident on set. And typical gerry starts talking about having to bring flowers to women in the hospital, it was all a joke.

    @Cora: I have been thinking about that. I did think the interview was around the pSIL promos so maybe he was referring to HS and not someone in his past. It was unclear but if conversations were going on on the sets of these interviews it could have been residule from that incident. Just on clearfied during the interview. it was an interview good bad.

    @redOctober: I agree with all that you said. it’s a wonder I get confused!

    @McK: yes I remember the flowers to the hospital but I don’t remember a lot of joking around. He looked pretty mortified to me that he mentioned the subject. However, in the interview it was not said it was HS incident. At the time I saw it I had not heard about that. but now I assume that is what he was talking about.

  329. 329

    yep that’s it! they are joking around and referring to HS. I need to download this and rewatch them instead of just watching once and losing it in youtube land! I was not familiar with HS incident though.

As I said earlier, my shock and awe effect is much more cooler and jaded then when I first was reading about him. I never said that the guy who wrote the article said G was a jerk. I mentioned that G seemed mean spirited and a bit of a bully. I also think there is a longer article out there from this interview.

    Fritz the Boxer Says:

    @stupidfans….I have to respectfully disagree on one of your statements. In the dog incidident/debacle, I gotta side with Gerard on this one. From what I read, and it could be wrong, the greyhound allegedly had G’s dog in it’s mouth and was shaking her violently by the neck. Mind you, I know it’s natural for this breed and I can’t fault the dog. Gerard’s dog was unleashed and easy pickings. However, in G’s shoes, if I saw my dog being shaken by the neck, MAYBE about to be killed, my gut instinct would be to get the other dog off by any means necessary…it’s primal and I surmise he was fearful for her survival. I would imagine there was yelping or squealing in pain involved which may have also added to the drama.
    Lastly…that couple milked the incident ad nauseum. Again, I’m not implying what Gerard did was right…just simply acting on instinct.

  343. 343
    Leslie51 Says:

    By all accounts Aniston is a real animal lover with beloved dogs of her own. She would have been aware of the situation with Lolita and the greyhound as the incident happened on the filming site. IMO If JA thought that Gerry had been in any way deliberately abusive to that greyhound I doubt she would have been as friendly or as respectful and close with him as it appeared during filming and around the time of the BH promos.

    @Dusty: Dear Dusty:

    Your screen name tells us all we need to know regarding why you like Gergolo.

    When the phannies start the “everyone in the world thinks Gerry is God” horsesh/t, then I have to set them straight because they don’t speak for everyone, much as they think they do. Until they finally eat everyone else, that won’t be the case.

    I hadn’t commented in a long while but when I do many phannies get pissy instead of taking a piss. They take Gergolo’s reputation more serious than a heart attack.

    You want positive? OK. Cube and Oy can be very funny – sometimes hysterically so. They don’t comment enough. There are a few others here who can too. We need more of them and less of the bon bon brigade. They already have websites to go and flap their cellulite. It would be nice if they stopped making the entire internet boring with their blathering.

Oy and Cube, yeah, they give Butler his due, but you’re a bit over the top in caustic hammering of random posters. I do appreciate the effort it took to say what you did. You’ve reinstated my opinion of the human race to a degree. And as for God, there’s only one, and it ain’t Butler.

You can see the font through the open window at the front of the Chapel and then on the monitor screen near the lower lefthand side of the photos. “Sam” and the minister are standing in the font.

    Gerard Butler Returns To Melvindale, MI for ‘Machine Gun Preacher’

    by Christine on July 22, 2010 ·

    On Monday, Gerard Butler returned to the Hearthside Mobile Home Park in Melvindale, MI to film another scene for his upcoming movie, Machine Gun Preacher.

    The set was a stark contrast to last week’s shoot in which everything was still intact. On Monday, one of the trailers was on its side and debris had been thrown everywhere, as if a tornado had gone through the park.

    Just saw the picture of the assistant with him and some other people and the little girl. Starting to think she may really be the girlfriend. I cannot swear to it because I don’t have his pictoral history memorized or at my fingertips like some of you, but I remember a blonde woman that could be her showing up in several pics from brazil. I also believe there was a similar looking blonde in the carribean pictures earlier this year. I cannot imagine that an assistant would be with him in all of these places, assuming they are all her, which I am not sure is the case. I am sure someone here can quickly investigate this an analyze the photos for comment.

    She is quite pretty. Much more so than most of the ****** he is pictured with.

    Yes, it’s the same woman who has been with him to all of these places, and I too have been thinking for a long time that she probably is his real GF. But no one here wants to face that possibility. I think all of the other women were just for the benefit of the tabloids to keep G on the front pages.
    I mean, she is very pretty and age appropriate so why wouldn’t they have a thing going. Common, it’s almost impossible for two heterosexuals of the opposite sex to keep it platonic.

    Don’t you think ignorant is a bit of a strong word? I don’t think what I said is ignorant at all. How many times we heard about married men sleeping with their secretary.

These things happen, let alone when it’s two single attractive people seeing each other everyday, because they together and travel together so much. Why not? I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility. I think there is a very strong chance that this is indeed the case.

    Red, Thanks much for sticking with it and getting the links posted. At least I’m remembering to copy the few things I’ve tried to post today.

    Things are a bit slow here, and I don’t think it’s because there are no new pics. I think it’s because it’s such a pain to post here the last few days. I’ve had really strange things happening with trying to post and just trying to read from one page to the next.

    BloAss is attractive, but I don’t think she’s in a relationship with him other than a working one.

    Little Rhema (is that the right name?) is quite an accomplished little girl. Her mother died when she was even younger. I wonder who is pushing this career.

    I’ve been wondering why we don’t have any word of what his next project will be. Actors usually have those things locked up way in advance. Remember the blockbuster rumors and some announcement that was supposed to be coming in the fall? And, nothing new on the Cleopatra movie?

    What would people here like him to star in next?

    hellotheregb Says:

    @CC: luv it! I have the dvd just for the extras! I like seeing how they filmed the movie. Not just for the mooning.

    Hey, I was at the dollar theater today and saw “killers” a Robert Lukcasic (?) film with, yes, the “angel” Katheren Heigl. That is the same director/producer as TUT. I have to say TUT was much, much better. G man was better then Ashton in many ways. It was strange I thought Ashton would have more expression and humor but he was pretty stiff in this film. Heigl played the usual uptight needs to find a man role. Just a repeat but the dialog and film was dull and repetitive.

    @simply hopeful: I have been using this as well but have had many problems. I have to reload a page several times before it will load and open. my posts are not lost but take several tries to get it to take.

    It’s so funny how they oil the males in movies (as if Milo was the kind of guy oiling his burrito-steeled body after showering). Wishing all the ladies a beautiful weekend – and hopefully new pics on Monday!

    Old Mia Says:

    Looks like everyone is giving up until JJ gets this place fixed. I’ll try tonight and hope for something.

    Script Reader: Thanks for explaining the trailer park scene. There’s nothing in the book like that, so it’s either a story Sam told the script writer or made up for an effect.

    From an article on

    Mitch Rapp Movie Franchise- A few years ago, I discovered a virtually unknown author named Vince Flynn who was in the process of writing a series of books about Mitch Rapp, a CIA Counterterrorism Operative. Back then, I read for enjoyment…a couple of years later I was reading and wondered why nobody had turned this book series into a movie franchise. Unfortunately, when I started looking into acquiring the movie rights, I discovered that CBS Films had beaten me to the punch and purchased the movie rights. The first movie is due out in 2012 and will most likely star either Brad Pitt or Gerard Butler as the title character

    I can kind of agree with Mell about the thumbs down. Most everyone posting is here to have some fun and enjoy their ‘hobby.’ I don’t get some pill who comes on a board and thumbs everything down. Perhaps that’s their fun? It really doesn’t bother me on any serious level. This too shall pass.

    You may not come equipped with duck/duct tape and billy clubs and you are not starting out on road trips from far, far away, but you guys are stalkers. Desktop stalkers, but stalkers none the less. Gerard Butler can’t pee without you knowing about it and broadcasting it for the world to see. It was obvious at the karaoke bar the other night that he was concerned it was being filmed. Yet, it’s everywhere. Here too, right?

    Give him some space and let him make this movie.

    I’m hardly interferring with him making a movie. He lives his life and doesn’t give a hiccup what we here on some internet board think. Get over yourselves. I just think he’s pretty. And that’s what all this shi.t is about. Why would anyone of you be here if you didn’t think he was hot? Now if that’s not it, please explain. I chase Butler all over the internet because…………………………

  448. 448
    mck Says:

    What’s the difference between those who post and those who leark. The answer is there is none.
    I think Gerry looked uncomfortable because he was surrounded by drunk retards and he was sober, if he was worried about being video taped he would have gone somewhere a little less known. He was there with the cast and crew for cr@p sake.

  449. 449

    Scream 4 – his wife was out for a few days shooting as well a few weeks ago.

    ‘Bounty Hunter’ tops DVD sales roster

    LOS ANGELES, July 23 (UPI) — The Jennifer Aniston-Gerard Butler romantic comedy “The Bounty Hunter” is the top-selling DVD and No. 1 rental in the United States, Rentrak said.
    Which means bad reviews = nada in the world of DVD sales and rentals.

    Ashton was in Australia promoting his turkey of a film with Heigl, when people say it is is worse than the Bounty Hunter, oy vei, besides the question better asked where is Ashton, LOL.

  469. 469
    Old Mia Says:

    No, I don’t think there is anything going on between G and Demi. I was just kidding. Demi is too old for G’s tastes. LOL.

    I wonder why they are still bothering to promote Killers with personal appearances. But, I suppose if it generates a few million, it’ll help the bottom line. It hasn’t even caught up with the cost of production.

    I think BH plays better on the small screen than in theaters. I have the DVD and actually enjoyed it.

    Karen Says:

    Hanging with co-workers and friends. So much better then the seedy gang he got mixed up with in Belgrade! I think he had too much time on his hands when he was there. In Detroit, he’s acting and producing and there seems to be a lot of different locations to coordinate. Even if he isn’t doing it directly, I’d bet he in on the ground floor with all of it.

    OK. I’ve had it. Please remove the baby elephant thing from the side of my screen or I may not come back here. I can’t look at it any longer. There is nothing I can do. I am powerless. I will not play it because it will make me seriously ill. God help me. Please make it and the whole problem go away. JJ, do something … I hate the circus. I will never go to one.

    @Nuts: I would love to read Butler’s diary, you wouldn’t just be laughing, you’d be choking from some of the snippets you’d get in there :-)

    I have to say I agree the baby elephant photo is sad, but I have made some positive decisions in my life from seeing film or photos that have shook me up. I guess its all down to education, there are definitely people out there that don’t know stuff like this goes on, so if the word can be spread about the ill-treatment of animals then maybe people can start making more informed decisions about things – like no, I won’t take my kids to the circus, or no, I won’t buy snakeskin handbags.

    Sorry – don’t want to sound like a nag, I do agree the pictures are hard to see – it just breaks your heart sometimes. But there is always a positive.
