Gerard Butler & Adrien Brody: 'Let's Build A School For Haiti!'

Gerard Butler & Adrien Brody: 'Let's Build A School For Haiti!'

Gerard Butler and Adrien Brody show their support for Artists for Peace and Justice at its “Let’s Build a School for Haiti” fundraising dinner on Friday (November 5) at NYC’s Salon Millesime.

Gerard, 40, is a part of APJ’s Advisory Board, along with a handful of celebs including Daniel Craig, Russell Crowe, James Franco, Penelope Cruz, Clint Eastwood and Charlize Theron.

On the red carpet, Gerard met up and posed with Israeli TV presenter Moran Atias.

Earlier this week, the Scottish stud reportedly came to the rescue of a woman who fell on the street after tripping on her high heels.

Gerard noticed the woman on the ground after grabbing dinner with some friends in NYC and helped her to her feet!

    Loving that look tonight!

  • Sharp

    Quick! Run! Over here! And may I just say before the hate begins, I freakin’ LOVE the hair!

  • ==

    Wow, they both look great! Really loving Gerry’s hair and Adrien is just gorgeous as always =)

  • good look

    Great pics…love Gerry’s hair and Adrien looks great too.

  • hair

    I must be in the minority. I think Gerry’s hair looks bad in these pics. I like the longer hair, and I like other pics – but these look odd.

  • gotta be kidding

    hair too long, and he got too thin! WTF? is that girl the one from the pitti restaurant?? so thats what he’s been up to these past few days! the sex-ercise is really shedding pounds!

  • ThinkFirstThenType

    @gotta be kidding:

    No it’s not the girl from the restaurant. That’s Moran Atias, remember the one from the Dolce & Gabbana Yacht after the LAST APJ event in Cannes in May?? She’s involved with the charity and a friend of G’s (whatever that means)

  • InnerCircle

    @gotta be kidding: That’s Moran Atias. They’ve been friends for a long time and they met in Cannes this Summer, along with Paul Haggis. I guess she’s also involved with the group.

  • gotta be kidding


    thanks i was wondering! and you KNOW when GB has a female friend what it means, hehe

  • TXpert

    Gerry Butler looked his best in DRACULA 2000…if you’ve seen it…you get it. If you have NOT..I suggest you find it on cable or rent it…WOW…he was HOT.
    He was in shape…ripped and long hair.

    he probably looks better in person.

  • PsychoB

    Don’t mind the hair but when its long he should keep the stubble short. And SHAVE THAT NECK!!!

  • gotta be kidding


    yes for the love of god he should please shave that neck! his face is just lost in all that hair

  • just sayin’

    yes, looked the best in Dracula 2000 and acted the best in The Jury – which was shot not long after D2K.

  • always

    suspicious of pictures where you can’t see both hands!

    I love her dress.

  • CJ

    Horrible, Horrible hairstyle on the G man…is not becoming at all…he really needs a good stylist..♥

  • Mr. Giggles
  • CJ

    I concur Giggles…its not the length of his hair but the style…mop indeed…♥

  • Mr. Giggles

    G must have dated the hairstylist at some point ….. ;)

  • CJ

    I’m sorry but the 80′s keep flashing before my eyes!..

    And instead of building schools they need to spend the money on special forces to go into Haiti and take out the goverment there so money sent to Haiti can be used for housing and food instead of lining the pockets of the powers that be..people still living in long ago was the storm?…the goverment should be ashamed of its self..

  • Pearl

    These two guys are so disgusting and fug. Butler has to be riddled with STDs and I don’t know what the fuk is going on with Brody, but he’s pretty much a douchebag.

  • Gracey

    Thanx for the new thread.

    I think Gerry looks great, but why is he getting so thin? He’s about as skinny as Brody. He sure eats out enough! What does he order? A bowl of lettuce? Those beach pictures from a year ago must have really hurt. But, Gerry, don’t overdo it.

    And he dyed the hair again. I hope that’s because he’s up for a new role we’ll hear about soon. I can’t think of any other reason. Because I love the gray. I think he looks great when it shows naturally.

    I’ve looked at a bunch of photos from this event and cannot believe how horrible Russell Crowe looks. Guess he’s given up on being near hot again. I don’t think he wants to be photographed anywhere near reed thin & tall Butler.

  • kant spel

    I usually despise Gerry, but I have to admit he’s looking good here. Not to mention I’m totally digging the new hair.

  • ifsofacto

    @Gracey: There are some on here of Gerry with Crowe. Crowe is morphing into Orson Wells.

    But Gerry is losing what looks like an alarming loss of weight. I want Mike Chadway back.

  • Laurie 3

    I culdn’t agree more. The governments in many of these troubled spots are to blame and any money going to these countries usually ends up in the pockets of the corrupt ones running the show. It doesn’t matter how much money you pour into countries like Haiti, it’s tantamount to poring water in a bucket with a hole in it. It’s useless.
    Also, he looks OK but not great. The hair is too long and blocks his forehead, and the beard is way too thick. He looked best in
    2006-2007 and that was only 3 or 4 years ago. How can someone change so much in 3 or 4 years, it’s baffling.
    I don’t know about his company but he looked hot during this period of his life.

  • CJ

    Crowe’s a bit like Gerry..he likes his food and sweets..unless Crowe is doing a movie that requires him to be fit he just doesn’t work out and eat healthy..

  • Juno

    Spittle and the cheesedouche!

  • Old Mia

    @ifsofacto: I was chomping at the bit all night to get out of work and come home to see pics of G at this event.

    If I didn’t know the real GJB, I’d think this was a hot guy.

    But, I must say, I’m not feeling the hair. It was fine until the dye came out again. I can only hope it’s for a role or the L’Oreal stuff. But, if so, I think they missed the mark. Butler with the gray is just beautiful. The dark stuff all over takes away from how handsome this man is.

    Re: Russell. Well. Not much to say. A picture is worth a thousand words.

  • moldy oldie

    i’m gettin a warren beatty in shampoo vibe from the butler….maybe a remake in the works?…………snicker…snicker

  • obvious

    How many times must Moran be thrown in your faces until you realize he’s with her? Girlies, this has been going on for a LONG time.

  • i heart

    Nice to see these guys giving back to a great cause!

  • trying to figure it out

    He looks like he’s been embalmed. And he’s wearing Susan Boyle’s wig again.

  • Teamster

    I have never seen more gorgeous hair being more mis-managed than Gerry’s.

  • butler 101

    There has got to be some explanation for that god awful hair. I love him. I do. But what’s up with that hair?

    Oh well. Love him. BUT, Butler, please cut the hair. We are all over Marek. We are on to the new you.

  • the times they are a changing

    This is Crowe’s debut from leading man to character actor.

    Butler? Who knows? The Jury is still out. But that face is classic,

  • @ Moran

    She’s gorgeous and she’s with him right now.

  • What?

    Read on IMDb that Brody ‘won’ the date with Gerry? Surely that can’t be.

  • hellotheregb

    oh dear they are back here to stir the pot! Moran, well we will see.

    anyway, I don’t know why my comment about his hair would be in moderation.

    I really do not like this style. Longer is not bad but the whole poof look not my cup of tea. I don’t get the color. Does he go to the quickie mart and pick the first bottle of hair dye out of the clearance bin? who is doing this to his hair? It has got to stop. He does look a little like S. boyle. She sings better.

    and the beard when it gets so thick and down the neck! icky!

    On the flip side he looks genuinely happy here. I do like to see that.

  • hellotheregb

    sorry all I won the “date with Gerry”! I get to fix his hair anyway I want and of course dress him, and choose the number of models that will be joining us on our walk through Paris… umm no scratch that.. through NYC .. umm no that has been done… umm..through Madrid!…. um no that was w/
    Alan..Sebia! umm no…. to many blonds to compete with…I think we will just continue to house hunt together..! yeah that’s the ticket! Sorry Ms. Moran will have to pay for her “win a date with Gerry”.

  • Mr. Giggles

    Should a date with G really be called a *win* ….. ?!?!? :P

  • interesting

    November 2010, Moran will be seen in “The Next Three Days” directed by Paul Haggis.

  • Noha

    So it’s all in the family. Many of these actors supposrt his charity because they want to be in his movies eventually.
    This is B.S charity.

  • InnerCircle

    @Noha: Nothing is free in Hollywood. On the other hand, does it really matter if one of the motivations to do something good is career oriented for some of them? In the end, it is still beneficial to the cause they are supporting financially and we all know the Haitian people badly needs that help.

  • Jokergurl

    Two cool guys, but I would start with building HOMES for Haiti, not just schools, their homes were tents, get some celeb power behind this, make these houses something safer than tents and shacks, they need first to address the cholera outbreak from caused by the earthquake that caused the underground sewage system to surface because it was not put into solid ground in the first place. Just a thought.

  • stupidfans

    I’ve never seen a man so desperate to try to recapture his youth. I think he already knows he can’t hold onto it anymore. Someone really wants to keep the train of models coming. *cough, cough* He isn’t 30 and he won’t ever look it again.

    The suit is great. For once his clothing is impeccable. It’s his hygiene, as usual, that’s suspect. Those upset about his weight loss can thank those beach photos from a year ago. The response to that obviously sent him railing in the other direction.

    I do agree on the charity thing. I’m happy it’s helping people in need, but most Hollywood charities are nothing but one upmanship festivals. Obviously every actor involved, save for some of Haitian decent, has an agenda and trying to crawl up Paul Haggis’ a$$.

    Gerry is a consummate a$$-kisser. You can’t take that away from him.

  • urg

    Tom Coburn, tea party senator, is personally blocking aid to Haiti just to F with POTUS.

    Now people are dying of cholera. The blood of the dead is on Coburn’s hands. Party of life!

  • interesting

    That was on Moran’s wiki page, but now I’m not sure she is actually in the movie. It’s Crowe and Elizabeth Banks. Haven’t seen a lot of advertising for it yet.

    I wonder why Hillary Swank is not a part of APJ? Or is she?

  • haiti aid


    The US has given billions (yes billions with a b) to Haiti in the past 20 years. It hasn’t helped. The government is corrupt. That is why the earthquake was so disasterous to that country. They didn’t have the infrastructure and the buildings were not built to sustain earthquakes. The Dominican Republic, by comparision, has a thriving tourist trade, a good infrastructure, and a competent government. Therefore, the earthquake did not destroy that country, like it did in Haiti. The buildings where better built, they had emergency services and even good roads. Thus, handouts and aid from other countries, and even charities will not help Haiti until the corrupt government is cleaned up.
    Unfortunately, sending more US taxpayer money is not going to help the problem. Sending humanitarian help is good, but funneling money into a country where it isn’t going to help the infrastructure etc. because the money is basically “stolen” isn’t the way to go.
    I’m not sure that I disagree with any American politician who wants to block throwing money into a country when we have no control of where it goes or how it will be used. Controlling the money is imperative if aid is to be given.
    That is why APJ is doing things right, in my opinion. They are controlling the money and using it to build schools. They are not just handing it over to the government or some other organization in Haiti. They control it all. I do think building schools is a good way to at least educate the population (which is very young in Haiti) and help them be able to help themselves (and possibly improve their own country and government) in the future.

  • it is just me but

    … doesn’t he seem to be channeling the spirit of ‘my little pony’ with those bangs? horrid hair and please do a bit of facial topiary please!!!

  • notbornyesterday

    @haiti aid:

    Coburn has no noble or fiscal purpose. He’s just being a dick.
