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.

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

    @Julie:

    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.

  • Old Mia

    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.

  • Sukar

    @Old Mia:

    Yep she looks better in videos, but still not a beauty to me. But we all have different standards of beauty.

  • frannie

    Hey guys! Troll here….you peeps are on a roll today! Came for the new pictures …I think they’re HOT! Sorry but I have a syndrome… Got what I came for…*yawn* carry on!

  • Here we go again

    @Sweet pea:

    If he’s on the phone with crab ass, she’s nagging him as he doesn’t look too happy.

    Who said btw that Jen and he were famewhore? You forgot to add 2 big famewhore who attached themselves to him recently. Martina Rajic and her tell all and Laurie Cholewa who needed some help not losing her jobs at first Direct8 and then at France 2.

  • Old Mia

    @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.

  • GLENCOE LASS

    Does anyone know if Gerry likes hockey? Why is he wearing this hat?

  • Sukar

    @Old Mia:

    Me too, but the fact that two of her shows were announced right after pics of them together were published is very suspicious. However, if he is in on it and is helping her because he loves her then it is another story.

    Mia I would like to send you an email but am too scared to put anything personal on JJ :(

  • Sukar

    It’s funny I just showed my cousin photos of Laurie and she said that she is stunning. Lol beauty standards does differ from person to person.

  • craigy

    Boy Old Mia and Sukar you must both be Victoria Secret quality women. STFU

    …thumb me down! ..ha!

  • McK

    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. Laurie I have a feeling is long gone but whether she was a fame wh0re or not thats what Gerry wanted at the time. So analyzing her looks constantly is a waist. Its not going to change a thing.

  • Fiera

    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.

  • Fiera

    Also, I hope he doesn’t wear that hat anymore. If he gets attacked for wearing it, Robocop will not save him, no matter what the movies about Detroit say. :)

  • craigy

    @Sukar: So you say, but you are also a much more pathetic of a person too. One who has to put other people down to place themselves above everyone else. Pretty people are humble people Sukar.

  • Sukar

    @craigy:

    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. I said she is attractive but not beautiful and that I think i am better looking and i bet that 99% of the JJ women are too. She’s average, it is not that hard to beat an average woman.

  • Nuts

    @Fiera:

    Fiera, perhaps you should gift him with a cap from a Detroit sports team. A souvenir from a fellow cast member to add to his growing collectgion, :o)

  • Fiera

    @Nuts: hehehe. I should. Though I did get him a pin from my roller derby team. I also got a t-shirt for the wardrobe guy.

  • XOXOXO

    @Just looking: First of all, this is a club/bar near and/or on campus …correct? From the pic, all I noticed was him acting like a idiot …yet again, and surely not like a 41 yr old man! The pic speaks for itself. He needs to grow up.

  • Old Mia

    @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.

  • craigy

    @Sukar:”…it is hard not that hard to beat average”?????????????

    Give me an average, humble, the” other” 1% of JJ women anyday over a conceited snob like you!
    .
    I am happy you like what you see in the mirror Sukar. You get an A for self esteem. Maybe you should look more deeply into a person than what is on the surface.

    Enough said, I am A Butler fan, not yours.

  • XOXOXO

    @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.

  • XOXOXO

    @Mellifera: Laurie definetly has T’s. Check out her photos.

  • Huh?

    @XOXOXO: I didn’t see that he was acting like an idiot. He was just having a good time. And, to set the record straight. He’s 40. That’s hardly an age to dry up and not have a good time. 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

  • XOXOXO

    @sukar: Can you post the photo? Thx.

  • gossiphound

    The people who reported Gerry’s presence at the bar and took the photos were twenty somethings. Not gasp old people. As if that makes a difference.

    I guess Demi Moore and Gerry count as old people. Michelle Monaghan is a bit younger though.

  • gossiphound

    PS The Karoake Bar called Rockstarz, sounds like the celeb crowd may have gone to another nightclub thereafter, away from the riff raff

  • Oldfurniture

    @Old Mia

    I don’t think they are/were only friends….I’ve seen pictures in a tabloid here, where both are somewhere in the south of France at the beach, kissing and she is laying on him (or the other way around), kissing.

    Oddly enough, I can’t find these pictures on the net.

  • XOXOXO

    @Huh?: I never said that 40 is old, or implied it., or that he shouldn’t have fun …even at 40. Your missing the big picture here. 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.

  • busybee

    What difference does it make? Why are women on this board and others so hung up on who the guy’s banging? If you were truly satisfied at home you wouldn’t spend so much time here debating and caring about that. FACT.
    Oh I forgot, it’s just for “fun”. Snort.

  • Oldfurniture

    “early 40’s don’t jump on stage and sing on a regular basis.”

    I know more than one who does that! ;-)

  • gossiphound

    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……

  • gossiphound

    @Oldfurniture:

    LOL yeah the Rolling Stones for one.

  • McK

    @XOXOXO:

    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.

  • XOXOXO

    @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.

  • Don’t see it

    @XOXOXO: Are you taking about the karaoke piccies? If so, I don’t see that he’s doing anything wrong or idiotic in them. What do you see that’s wrong? Me thinks you need to lighten up.

  • gossiphound

    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.

    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.

  • CJ

    Thank you Gossip for making that happen..xxxooo…♥

  • Oldfurniture

    Oh well, the link doesn’t work….the video is called “Gerrard Butler on Jimmy Kimmel (kiss)”.

  • Alicia

    Girls girls girls what’s with all the hating man. I love Gerry as an actor and some don’t but can we all agree to disagree without all the hateful comments. Last I checked it’s a free country and you can like/love who you like. Let’s spread love not hate….:)

  • XOXOXO

    Why was Demi Moore there? Anyone know?

  • Sukar

    @craigy:

    How do I like what I see in the mirror if I said I am average? Oh and don’t worry I am a nice person or I wouldn’t have defended all the women Gerry dated against the insults. Even Laurie herself I have defended and have said repeatedly that their is a chance that this could be genuine love. Now move on.

  • Just looking

    @Pat:
    since you were on the set, did you see anyone that could be his
    girl friend?

  • gossiphound

    The factory has been outed:
    http://bit.ly/a5qfHP

    NSFW?

  • gossiphound

    @XOXOXO: Demi is one of the many celebs filming a movie right now in Detroit. She is a friend of Gerard’s. She just started filming this movie in Detroit, with Miley Cryus and called “LOL” , also starring the hunkilcious Thomas Jane. He must be the dad/husband.
