    OK, Mr. L’Oreal Gerry Butler, I see some gray showing. Nothing wrong with letting it go, dude. He’s going to be a sexy gray-haired man one day. It should be now since he’s in his 40s, but with these Hollywood guys, he might be L’Orealing it until he’s 65. Argh.

  • Veronique

    Gerard looks great!

  • Manny

    He looks great and healthy. Suit fits extremely well. Well done. Butler. :)

  • kulu

    Absolute gorgeous

  • LauraS

    Looking good Mr Butler! Gray or no gray, hairdo looks amazing
    Hello JJers!

  • gotta be kidding


  • Me2

    Does he look tired to anyone or is it just me?

  • mymymy

    He is so fricken adorable!

  • Bonnie

    I can’t wait to see this segment on TV. He can let his real accent out loud and clear!

  • Gracey

    What a face. He’s really so handsome. A little thin for him, but so what?

  • west coast

    I wish he had worn a kilt too.

  • M

    Will this dirty bum ever shave and wash his hair?

  • M

    Dirty bum. Will he ever shave and wash his hair?

  • karen

    As far as I’m concerned, he looks the closest to Attila than he has in a long time. Loved him in that. But then, I love all his reincarnations! He sure is a chameleon. As far as his weight goes, I think it’s ideal right now but he does not need to drop another ounce or he’ll risk looking haggard.

  • Nuts

    Very dashing and dapper, Scotsman.

    Two thumbs up.

  • i heart

    i am glad that gerrry did this appearance,

    it is a glaring reminder for himself and all of us who the real heroes are in the world,

    it most certainly is not the puffed up, preened and fabulously famous celebrity, flitting from their elaborate mansion to 5 star resort vacations….via private jets………

    but the real heros are humbly removed from the spotlight and with nothing but a few dollars and sometimes just a sheer determination to try and make the world a better place.

    they deserve their kudos indeed, and our thanks

  • whatever

    People can say what they will about him, but he has the most beautiful, expressive eyes on god’s green planet. He doesn’t have to open his mouth. He says it all with one look. Has anyone seen Dear Frankie? A prime example.

  • Cherry pie

    @M: I agree, he does look like he needs to L’Oreal, but the shampoo (and body wash, if they have it). He always looks like he needs a bath. He’s kind of disgusting, as I’m sure he’s riddled with STDs.

  • Cherry pie

    @whatever: You’re joking, right? All his eyes ever say is “I’m horny, do you wanna?” and not in a sexy way but in a pervy way.

  • Cherry pie

    But pervy works for hookers, fangirls, and Victoria Secrets models (especially the current batch of bimbettes, ew, where did they find them?), so he’s got no worries, right?

  • ike

    In my opinioin, it’s not healthy to bob around from thin to chunky a couple of times a year. He would be better off to pick a realistic weight and stick with it. You know he isn’t going to keep eating only carrots and lettuce and drinking water the rest of his life.

  • comment

    @Cherry pie: Why don’t you take it elsewhere, you nasty creep.

  • trying to figure it out

    I see he’s got the So Cal look already – orange

  • hmmmmm

    @Cherry pie: And take your thumbs with you. How silly to thumb everyone down. What’ up with that?

  • redOctober

    I can see the magnificent “blue steels” are back …he has wonderful eyes and is not afraid to use them.

  • lolita

    @i heart: well said♥

  • ghi

    Please Gerry shave the neck and you will be better than perfect. Is that too much to ask. Come on you can do it Gerry. I am rooting for you.

  • needless to say

    This man is so handsome… when I see photos of him in his 20s he doesn’t look as good as now. Charming.

  • lolita

    @redOctober: Oh RED, how I agree with you on that. He is downright one of the most hansome men on earth and his eyes just draw you in with their expressions.

  • redOctober


    …what can I say that hasn’t been said about this handsome Scot …

    …he has IT .

  • Interesting

    he looks OK, he doesn’t look gorgeous
    so what is he up to today? any tweets on his whereabouts?

  • hillary

    He looks almost small compared to the other Scott.

  • ugh

    What a great event with many incredible people there….and JJ chose to highlight this douche.
    JJ obviously has a bon/er for Gerry.

  • lolita

    @redOctober: And Much more!!

  • So Swedish

    Well hello there goodlookin´!

    He´s been looking a bit tired and worn out the last couple of weeks, but not on these pics. Love his hair!
    The fact that he is not hiding his gray hair by dying it is really good. Makes him look a bit more distinguished.

    Keep the hair Gerry, and the suit! Love you all dressed up.

  • cindy lu


  • CraigNaDun

    Not dashing at all,he could shave and bath sometimes!
    Merlin,if u read me over at IMDB! Scottish fellowship

  • Reality Speaks

    That’s because the other Scot’s shoes have at least a 11/2-inch heel.
    Look at his shoes in this picture
    i like those shoes; lol i wouldn’t mind wearing them myself

  • Jokergurl

    Cool guy, love the suit and that hair :) Hello handsome Scotsman

  • PsychoB

    Looks better than the last red carpet,but he has wings in his hair and his neck looks bad. Shave your neck for christsake.

  • Carla

    Oh, wow!
    Here he is up close, where you can see how damaged his skin is. All that sun tanning he does. Lucky for him he’s a guy and it still looks OK on him, but can you imagine a woman looking like that with crows feet around her eyes? It wouldn’t be the same.

  • meg

    @redOctober: You mean that he’s a filthy womanizer who stinks like whiskey and 2-day-old love juice? Not much more.

  • kelly

    looking good gerard he sure cleans up well !!!

  • redOctober


    I’ve not shared intimacy with the man, as you’ve obviously done, so I’ll wait until I have the same chance…
    I cannot share such pearls of wisdom until I’m certain about the smell of his body fluids.

  • Don’t get it

    @redOctober: His eyes are the window to his soul. Amazing! Love those eyes!!

  • redOctober

    @Don’t get it:

    I don’t know the man well enough to talk about his soul…but he looks like a real man, to me. Dressed up, or in faded jeans and leather jackets…a man, not a pretty boy.

  • needless to say

    @redOctober: redOctober, couldn’t agree more! That’s what makes him so deeply attractive.

  • gotta be kidding

    he is more human than other good looking celebs, if he is gray, if he has a few wrinkles, etc. , big deal, he is not hung up that way, and has to run to a plastic surgeons’s office. find that very attractive about him. i think when you see the “orange” or something that may look artificial, when he decides to have someone do make-up he prob just lets them do what they want to do and trusts them, ’cause he doesnt do that himself.

  • lolita


    Red, You are a classy lady who can give Gerry credit when he earns it and constructed criticizim when he does’nt. You have always seen past the celebrity bs that comes with the territory and have seen him as a man first and an actor second. Don’t let the haters of Gerry get to you, they are really not worth your effort. You have brought so much to this site and I feel you are a person of good character and thoughfulness.
