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!

    I’m busy with RL, sometimes I read but can’t find the energy to write anything. not a big fan of the fights happening here lately. nice to see the sane posters still around. ♥♥♥

  • hellotheregb

    @Canera: yes often times the hair/beard is due to a role. We know that, just having fun. Most peeps have different likes for beards. In his roles though it is often noted in the dvd special features that he is very determined to choose his wardrobe and facial hair. Not always, but I have heard that on the dvd a few times.

    I don’t know where to go to read accurate accounts of his work on the sets. Making films looks like a lot of fun and that is why peeps are so interested in film making in general. Any info. on what it is like on set please post. We are interested!

    @trying to figure it out: LOL date with brody and S. boyle dress!

    @Well
    Maybe Zack’s going to do Superman in drag? That would be a twist.

    Just got back from seeing Megamind (not Megahead as previously typed, duh) – it’s a brilliant film and worth the price of admission.

    Off now to make spagetti sauce otherwise I’m not eating tonight.

    @trying to figure it out

    Thanks for the heads up about Megamind..the little one has been bugging me about seeing it….♥

  • watch out

    i doubt any of the money will end up going to the children as opposed to the corrupt gov’t.

  • cant’ please everyone

    @watch out: APJ do their own projects. They don’t filter it through the Haitian government.

  • Gracey

    @cant’ please everyone: Yes. They already have one new high school up and running. Others dealing with Haiti should learn from them.

    I’m sure he/she will really enjoy it. See the 3-D IMAX version if you can.

  • boobear

    I won’t give my money to anything Pitt or Jolie are connected with. Even if it’s only his voice. I just cannot stand him, and he’s not getting one red cent of my hard earned money. I can even tke her better than him.

    so what does it have to do with gerry?

    what did anyone find attractive in Russel Crowe?
    Gerry looks so good here and he looks perfect with Moran too.
    what a beautiful couple, but i know they are not dating.

  • Poor Lainey

    I love the hair and yes, he should have shaven the hair on his neck but I’m fine with the beard.

    Actually this is a good look for him and if I could, I would run my fingers through his hair, lol, but I’m not. I just like a good head of hair on a guy.

    His eyes though look sad so maybe fame is not what it’s cut up to be after all.

    One thought: this longer hair would look good in an 18-19th century movie in which men’ hair was worn longer. Could Burns be in the work for next?

  • curious cat

    Well, I tried to comment but it didn’t take so I try again although what more is there to say? I thiink GB’s hair looks fine, his beard looks fine, his neck looks fine, hairy or not. I prefer hair to the shaved look in Tomb Raider, although he looks fine enough there too. He’s better thin than fat, although I”m not sure you can tell what shape he’s in when he’s covered over with a dark suit. Recent pictures have been looking slim but not emaciated by any means. So what is the issue?
    I agree with those who ask why these charities for Haiti aren’t building homes instead of schools. Maybe there is a logic to it: Get the kids into a safe place during the day where they can learn, get a decent meal and be kept off the unruly streets while rebuilding goes on. CJ, if it’s true that land is being sold off to rich foreigners that’s disgraceful. I hadn’t read that. But corruption is rampant all over. I visited Haiti once, years ago, thought conditions were horrific. Naked people living in cardboard boxes, people begging all over, etc. Some people say it’s worse than India if smaller. Don’t know. Haven’t been to India. I applaud rich celebrities giving money and publicity to these efforts, just hope they do channel their money through agencies other than the government.

  • curious cat

    Oh, yes, that Moran Atias is gorgeous. More power to her. Now we’ll have endless spec on their relationship I suppose since they were photographed together at an event.
    Btw, I just thought of this. I know a couple, actors in CA . Admittedly not famous. Hardworking, with modest recogniton and respect, but not stars. I mentioned seeing an interview in which GB said he almost got a role opposite Jennifer Lopez and was SO disappointed when he didn’t get it. He was, Jennifer Lopez, WOW! He acted as if playing opposite J-Lo was a big plum. That;s all it took for these people to dismiss him as after fame, money and celebrity, not a serious acting career. J-Lo is not exactly highly regarded as an actress. This is just their opinion, but really, what has he done since? SO FAR? I kinda had to eat crow trying to defend him as the next Olivier. We disillusioned GB Hopers keep hoping for a sea change with the next flick but SO FAR….more parties, appearances, bar hopping. Etc. Done.

  • Gracey

    @Really?: Once upon a time, long, long ago, Crowe had a certain charm when he was in shape. Now, OMG. I don’t think he’ll ever come back from this. My prediction is he’s going to end up like Brando and Wells as he ages. Gerry, on the other hand, looks just stunning in that photo.

    @curious cat: My bet is that Gerry’s in pretty good shape under that suit. There have been recent tweets from people spotting him with a trainer. He usually doesn’t start with a trainer unless there is something on the horizon. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. But, I don’t think he should lose any more weight. That picture of Jared Leto shirtless is still etched in my brain. Muscular, but emaciated at the same time. Really scarey.

  • Old Timer

    OK. I’m not a spring chicken. But I’m not dead. I think Gerard Butler is the most handsome and intriguing man in the film industry today.

    Awhile ago, I picked up the old Michael Caine move “Alphie” on DVD. I finally watched it tonight. That is a classic. So funny and original for the time. I was reading on IMDb about the movie and it states, “Ladies man gradually begins to understand the consequence of his lifestyle.”

    I thought of Gerry Butler. Not in the same context as Alphie (well, not completely), but relevant. He seems to be giving up a personal life to pursue fame and fortune. I hope it doesn’t come back to bite him.

    Alphie was made in 1966. Michael Caine was 33. (OMG, Butler wasn’t even born yet!) Caine looked 43. Again made me think of Butler and those who love to say he looks older than his age. I think he looks like a baby, but that’s from my perspective. But looking older than his age didn’t hurt Caine’s career.

    Back to “Alphie.” Jude Law did a remake in 2004. Seems it was not necessary or well accepted. So, message to Gerry. Don’t do a remake of anything. Leave the past where it is. Onward.

  • justsayin’

    @Old Timer: Michael Caine was never a handsome man. He looked 50 when he was 30. He’s one of those people who looked older than he was when he was young and now looks the same age as he did then.

    Gerry, however, is aging very fast, but trying as hard as he can to look young. There’s a lot of competition in his business. Already there are younger, lower maintenance, better looking actors taking their place in the film industry. Gerry should settle into producing and make his money there. That’s where the real money is. It’s also the only way he will get an Oscar. Producing or writing are categories he has a better chance at winning.

  • PsychoB

    @curious cat:
    JLo would have been awful. thank God he didn’t get the part.

  • what weird world did I stumble

    @justsayin’: Maybe YOU think so. But a lot of us think Gerard is gorgeous.

    I’m happy he is producing. But he should never take that beautiful face away from us.

    Frankly, my dear, I see no one on the youthful scene who can hold a candle to this man. I don’t see anyone better looking. I don’t see anyone who has any little tidbit of his charisma. They just can’t get it. Name one person who is better looking? Oh, this should be good. Bring on the little dweebs. Their little thin hair. Their little sunken chests.

  • Old Mia

    Sorry I missed most of this. Butler gorgeous. Crowe, not so.

    Alphie, one of my favorite movies ever. That’s the Michael Caine version. Cher’s singing was really quite horrible. Why was that a hit?

    Agree. Never do a remake.

  • Really?

    @what weird world did I stumble:
    well said. i too think he is gorgeous. unfortuantly just sayin and Stupidfans always say that his looks are fading.
    Not by a long shot; no one has the charisma, the looks, or the brains.

    you’ll see, gerry, very often in newspapers and television. From now on, expect to see the truth burst.,
    I know it’s hard to believe now, I wonder if gerry denounced the horrible wickedness of Brangelina’s and their blackmail, or if it is going to invent a story, to give a reason, his marriage and his hidden children, 5 years

  • Really?

    @Gracey: @Old Timer:
    I totally agree. Gerry probably looks good and in-shape under the suit and there must be something new coming soon if he’s working with a trainer. Definitely, I don’t think he is the type of guy to stay without work for months on end.
    .
    It’s also evident he’s not chasing every skirt in town as peeps like to speculate here. He’s showing maturity. He knows he’s not into relationships now and is not leading anyone astray. He probably has a slew of FWB, but if they want to be in that kind of relationship with him, that’s their business.
    .
    Someone asked why his eyes look sad. I don’t think it’s sadness in his eyes, I think it’s his deep nature showing itself I think he gets into a reflective mood when he is overwhelmed with the realization of what he has achieved and who he has become. He seems to have a tendency to be introspective and philosophical about life, especially his success, and I think he is still amazed by his achievements. He’s not the type to take things for granted; everything he has is the result of his wits and hard work. He is still overwhelmed even from a comparatively small event like this fundraiser.
    I remember reading an interview where he said that he couldn’t believe he was actually having dinner with the director or producer of either TimeLine or Tomb Raider – I don’t remember who he was referring to. He spoke about how he never imagined he would ever meet someone that made blockbuster movies, let alone have dinner with him to discuss an upcoming blockbuster project with him in it. That dinner left him totally overwhelmed. So I think he is still astonished by his success and fame. It’s very admirable when one is not so jaded that he/she takes things for granted, but can still feel the magnitude of something. When all is said and done, he’s still a little boy from Paisley.

  • an impression

    Seen him up close. He’s a good looking man.  Nice eyes. I would say quite the pretty really. Surprisingly  quite declicate looking up close, if you him compare to most blokes his ages. Not overly masculine, if you put up against a Vin Disel or even a Sean Bean. He does quite a few wrinkles though for someone of his age. Too much California sun and partying me thinks But nonetheless, if you saw him walking down the street, and he wasn’t famous you’d definately  give him a double take. He was nice enough, a bit abrupt, and very confident. To be honest a little on the wrong side of arrogant. But the people who were working with him were absolutely  lovely, and I like to think that speaks volumes about a person. I get the impression that if he gets to know you and trusts you, he’s probably a really nice man. But my gut feeling is he’s extremely difficult to really get to know.  That’s my take on him anyway. Please don’t ask for anymore details, I won’t give any. Enjoy reading most of the comments on this broad. Not keen on the fighting and insults about other posters though.   

  • @impression

    @an impression:
    Just curious, is he really as tall as is reported 6-2, or do you think he is shorter? Someone said in a blog that he was shorter than he thought he’d be – whatever that means.

  • Red Dress

    @an impression

    It’s funny how people have differing opinions. I too have seen Gerard up close. I was surprised to find he is mostly photogenic, not quite all that in person. Yes, cocky and arrogant, not sure his people would be so benign if he wasn’t footing the bill. His abruptness can be hurtful. And lastly, I have always thought if I saw him on the street, I wouldn’t look twice. This was a few years ago so it’s possible he has changed. Not making waves, just stating I had opposite thoughts. Nonetheless, I think he is an attractive man and have not lost my interest in him.

  • @impression

    i don’t know why my comment is posted 3 times. i think it’s some glitch with JJ because of the time change, as I posted my comment only once at around 1:30 but it’s showing a later posting. Oh, but i see someone else also with double posts. i guess, it’s indeed a glitch.

  • an impression

    Ok. I’llgive you this one. It’s harmlessly really isn’t it. I’m 5’10″ and my. boyfriend is 6’1″. And the Gman is taller than me.

    @ reddress. I know what you mean. A friend of mine described him as heightened average looking bloke. But I do go for Irish looking guys. But I get you totally. And you are so right about the cockiness. I have to say found it harmles, if anything rather boyish. But you’re right I think some could and would definately take I the wrong way. I think, and this is only my opinion, if you’re a very no nonsense person he behaves accordingly.

  • Red Dress

    No he was polite, just slightly dismissive to those around him.

  • an impression

    @ reddress I totally get you . I know exactly what you mean.

  • Question

    @Red Dress:
    You mean dismissive to his people?
    @an impression:
    I get the same vibes from him even though I never met him. I do think he’s a very difficult person to really get to know well, and he hides his true feelings most of the time. However, once he trusts someone, he could be more friendly, and is probably a good friend to a handful of people, but I still doubt that even these people really know him deeply.
    I’m not sure he’s really cocky though. I think that he uses this attitude to protect his very delicate feelings. I would say he is even shy, but comes across as confident or cocky because shyness doesn’t go well with the image or confident attitude he needs to project to the world.
    Bottom line, I think he protects himself emotionally from getting hurt and he has a wall build around himself.

  • InnerCircle

    @Question: I totally agree. That’s how I perceived him too. His cocky attitude is just a façade. In reality, he’s a very sensitive man who gets hurt easily, which is why he doesn’t trust people easily. Only a handfull of people really know him and that probably includes his mother. I also think he’s scared to death to open up to people because most are befriending him for their own ambitions. He’s not stupid, he sees them for what they are. But after a while, I bet it gets really hard to make a difference between the fakes and the true friends. I don’t envy him at all.

  • Red Dress

    @question
    I did not have the impression that Gerard’s demeanor was bravado. I told what I saw; I’ll leave it to you or others to read more into it. Good night.

  • Question

    @InnerCircle:
    So true. At this point, I don’t think he knows the difference between friend or foe, and he doesn’t really care anymore to spend time differentiating, thus the cocky attitude.
    You can tell how sensitive he is from his eyes – they are quite expressive – and they don’t hide well the real feelings behind the iron wall he built around himself.
    People make him to be this sexually confident guy, but I think he is meeker than one might expect. Maybe because he has been bruised by a woman before, who knows, and that’s why he won’t open up to any woman that easily.

  • Question

    @Red Dress:
    we’re not saying it’s bravado; we’re saying his cockiness is possibly more show than actual truth of who he really is.

    The fat western civilisation finally makes Haiti one of their colonies! Hooray! Soon it will be “reconstructed” as a holiday resort, with the citizens as slaves for fat americans and europeans, who are just buing the whole island.
    Wonderful World!
