Gerard Butler: On The Run in New York

Gerard Butler chats on his cell phone as he hails a cab in the West Village, New York on Thursday (December 9).

The 41-year-old Scottish actor is back in Manhattan after spending some time in Miami earlier in the week.

Recently, Gerry received a Annie nomination in the Voice Acting in a Feature Production category for his work in the animated film How to Train Your Dragon. The Annie Awards showcases and acknowledges achievements in animation in film, television, and video game.

    @Curious Carla:

    I checked it and I only see “female” and NY. You have to be her friend to see more.

    Tap tap tap, that’s me tappin’ mah fingers oan th’ table :g.

  • Oh dear

    Poor Lainey@ I think her trick is to let him do more or less what he wants to do whenever he wants to do it. Think it’s called being a doormat.

  • Misinformation

    @curious cat:
    Excuse me, but when someone says blatant lies as she does, there is a problem there. I don’t mind someone’s opinions, as we all have opinions, but when she says his college degree from Scotland is as high as a PHD here in the US, spreads misinformation about Gina and Evan’s FB profiles, or makes up a story about how her sister and her husband ran into him in NYC in some restaurant and that he was so nice and picked up the tab for them – or whatever she claimed – I find that terrible, because she was blatantly laying. She was caught laying in other instances too.
    When someone makes claims that something happened when it didn’t, that’s lying. When someone says, “I think they are probably friends and nothing more,” that’s opinion and it’s perfectly OK.
    There is a difference between opinion and fact and you as a journalist should know the difference.
    So I don’t have a problem with anyone having opinions or speculating about things, I only have a problem with untrue claims. BTW, in most of these cases she claimed that she didn’t know any better. Well, if that’s the case then she should check her facts before posting.

  • yuck

    @poor Lainey….I think she is good for him. She is not the 20 year old model type. I would like to see him settle down and get married. She is in the industry too so that is a plus. Also the same age.

  • wake up

    @excuse me?:
    Getting married is the most important relationship a woman can have with a man. Anything less than marriage is the man using the woman – get that through your naïve skull. Well, actually, sometimes, it’s the man that wants to get married and the woman doesn’t and she will string him along for a long, long, time, which, at that point, I call the woman a user, not the man. However, such situations happen much less often than the man being the one to string the woman along.
    Furthermore, when you agree to go out with a man for years and let him get away with not marrying you, in effect you’re letting him use you. Those kinds of relationship might be good for the man only when he’s the type that doesn’t want to feel trapped, but they are not good for the woman because he could walk out on her at any time, and when she is older or has kids, the pickins become very slim and it’s very hard to find someone new. A woman in those kinds of situations has less to choose from, while he can still date a woman 10 or 15 years younger than he. Why then would you let him get away with not committing to you? Life is about commitments, about making decisions. If he can’t make a decision about marrying you, give him a kick in the butt and move on to a better man than he, before you become too old and the pickens are none existent. His co/ck can’t be that good that you can’t bear to let it go in some other woman’s puzz; let it – goodbye and good riddance. Let some other woman deal with his kind of trouble and you look for someone more worthy of you.
    In Gina’s case, she should absolutely not date him on his terms. Either he makes a commitment to her, or she should go and find someone else while she still looks good. I know some of you think that she is not that pretty. Well, maybe she isn’t, but she is far from ugly and she makes sense for him age wise. She also knows him for a long time and he has gotten used to her over the years. She could be the one for him.

  • Vanilla Ice Cream

    He looks like a turd. and probably smells like one.
    Did we get the intel on his p/enis size?
    What about how he is in bed? Last long??
    Still dating that Laurie chick?

  • Orange

    get over yourself jeannia!! gerard does not want your old worn out fat butt!
    id rather see him with someone who gets paid to look good!!
    give me a break!

  • yuck

    @wake up…no you are right, she should not date him on his terms. I wonder if that is the only way he will date though!? Maybe she will take him any way. I would hope not for her case. I think she is pretty and a good match for him. Hate to see her used by G.

  • yuck

    @Orange…calm down. Yess. he does want Jeannia. get over it. they make a great couple. Pleeeease don’t commit suicide over it.

  • curious cat


    I hear ya. I really do. All I was saying is that it’s a losing battle here to get people to stick to the truth. It WILL change, I am convinced, but it will take legal intervention at top corporate levels that will make the Internet observe the standards legitimate media have adhered to. I am appalled at things I see on the “net, not only by anonymous posters but by the so-called entertainment press.

  • Old Mia

    Anyone else having issues posting here again? Hope this isn’t a duplicate. JJ tells me it is … but it’s not showing up that I can see.

    @Sharp: I think it was last year, I was fascinated reading on Gals when the Hello poll was running. Some of them, in the last weeks of the contest, set timers so they could stop whatever they were doing and vote every 15 minutes.

    I was surprised to see David B in the Hello contest. I used to like him, because I watch Bones now and then. But after it came out what a sleeze he is, I can’t stand him. Is Bones big in the UK?

    It was also surprising to see G come in at #2 in the British actors poll, and the admission that he was in the lead some of the time. I figured he’d be just out of the top 10 and that was what the “don’t cry for” remark was going to be about. His fan base is pretty amazing. Haters show up at different sites now and then, but he has something that many people like. Bad movies or not. I’m hoping Coriolanus and MGP (still hope it’s Another Man’s War in the end) will show him in a different light.

    One more surprise for me was that Pattinson didn’t finish in the top 5. I’m no fan of his, but the tweenies certainly adore (d)? him.

  • KDHT

    @curious cat: The story of G at Jennifer Aniston’s party is an example that the entertainment/gossip press has no standards of accuracy. Unless the mistake is so bad that a celeb finally gets fed up and sues, the mistakes and/or outright lies are just ignored by the perpetrators and many in the reading public don’t question.

    And down the food chain, we have posters on sites such as JJ who come on with tales about celebs as if it’s the gospel when they are just saying what they surmise from looking at a photo or two. Yet they write it as if it is fact. And other saps believe it, and comment on it and on and on.

  • Cora

    @curious cat and @KDHT: I couldn’t agree wih you more.

  • yuck

    please…it is a gossip site…no? There is no accuracy at all and is only speculation. All in good fun and anyone posting here should know that.
    People get so carried away with what is real and what is media hype and speculation and down right fun. Get over it. no one knows the real truth about GB…we are here to have fun …lighten up everyone!

  • oy

    @Merlin: Trolls? I’m always relieved to see them. When they’re busy here, it lowers the incidences of crimes against cucumbers.

  • Misinformation

    @curious cat:
    A lot of people here post cr@p but they hardly say the things that she says, and that’s why I singled her out. It was an attempt to get her to see that she needs to comment only if she knows for sure. All other times, she should say “I think this or that” or “my opinion is such and such,” and of course, this goes for all posters. This place is made for speculation, yes, but it doesn’t mean it gives one a license to lie blatantly.

  • CJ

    Some people think if they hope or wish gossip is true than that gives them the right to post it…99.5 percent of the stuff posted here is probably not true…the words one chooses to post with makes a world of difference in how it is perceived…♥

  • CJ

    @oy…yes lets save the veggies and the fruits..♥♥

  • former IMDb’er

    @yuck: Have you read some of the stuff people post? Sure it’s fun for the stable, but some post as if they are in the know. Those are the ones I find objectionable. They come on telling they ‘know’ someone who KNOWS. You don’t believe it, but some others do. That’s my point. Sorry, but I find something wrong with someone lying about a celeb just to see their fiction in print, if only on a gossip site.

    Certainly the celebs, making big bucks, knew what they were getting into. But good grief. A line should be drawn in the sand.

    Gina, Jeannia, whoever. She’s a friend of Butlers. That’s documented. But she’s not a celeb. She didn’t sign on to be under a microscope, and her engagement, non-engagement, friendship with Butler, should not be the subject of public psychological babble and rumors of breaking her engagement to be with Butler. She’s a real person for goodness sake. Come on, people get that from a few photos of them together while he’s probably at work on a commercial and she’s there to touch up the makeup???? Hope she has a good sense of humor. For the record, I think she’s very attractive.

  • keeper of the thumbs

    Beware. Downie is on the loose tonight. Must have escaped its cell. We’ll get him roped in by morning.

  • Fritz loves her Cowboy


  • Louisville

    @Old Mia: Yep. He has some die hard fans. I think the L’Oreal commercials will actually boost his fan base in Europe. People who know him borderline from his movies are going to be stopped dead in their tracks by those images. Smart business move Alan and Gerry. TV reaches more people than films do today. Everywhere. There are already tweets from guys wanting to know if they’ll look like Butler if they use the stuff. One of my favorites is from someone – a girl I suppose – who asked if Butler uses enuf of it will he be young enuf to play Jamie Frasher.

  • CJ

    @Fritz loves her Cowboy….
    “Hello Fritz…what the hell is this about you loving a cowboy?”..I thought you were mine and mine only…♥♥

  • Heidi

    @Louisville: I’d forgotten the Butler/Frasher obsession. Whatever happened to blabby’s big movie? Guess she made millions from Butler fans buying her books and dreaming of Gerry in a kilt. Then she said ‘he’s a nice looking Scotsman but not Frasher,’ and her ship sank in the wink of an eye. I think the time for Outlander as a movie has passed. It was a romance novel pretending to be historical fiction. I tried it. But it was not for me. Blabby is rich and can just go away.

  • yuck

    @former IMDb’er….Yes. I know what you are saying and know what people post…that is my point. they are not in the know, it is all gossip and speculation. You can not take any of it too seriously. That is why we are all here no??? having fun and speculating about GB.

  • xoxoxo

    @Heidi: Well, it spawned a gazillion videos on YouTube. (All featuring we know who.) I actually liked Outlander. But I never went on from there. I guess ithe story goes on and on and on and on and on and into who cares oblivion..

  • former IMDb’er

    @yuck: I agree with you, except there are nuttties out there who believe the junk. While 90 percent of us are laughing, 10 percent are posting stuff they think they KNOW that’s just absurd. I don’t have the answers. If interested in Gerry, we just have to go on and take it all with a pinch of salt. I just hate that some get a wrong opinion of him from the idiots who post lies as the truth.

  • highlander

    Well girlies, if I could 100 percent connect with Gerard James Butler back in the 1700s, I’d go back through those stones in an instant. Forget modern sanitation. Unfortunately, I’m still at work. And I’m selling gasoline. Maybe I’ll find a time travel place between the pumps and the potato chips.

  • Mr. Giggles

    @Fritz loves her Cowboy:
    Ride’em cowgirl !!!!! ;)

  • she

    @Mr. Giggles: good morning to you. Very boring here today

  • she

    @CJ – bonanza LOL you are ancient. by the way I asked you something but you didn’t answer me.

  • CJ

    @she…I don’t remember what you asked me..sorry

  • she

    @CJ: go to comment 51. CJ – I have an urge to tell you that I love you and I’m not flattering you because I want an answer from you…

  • CJ

    I’m sure Gerry was protected as a child…if he wasn’t than his mother would have stayed with her husband that acted very irresponsible..I think his mother probably did the best she could under the circumstances..I beleive she moved in with her mother when she moved back to Scotland…I don’t know Gerry’s mother or grandmother so I can only speculater here…like I said before, G is a over active person in my opinion and would have been anxious and somewhat of a handful as a child…why he does what he does now is I’m sure a result of his ADD and not anything that happened in his childhood but with that said since we don’t have inside personal information on his whole childhood but just some stories Gerry has told we can only surmise what his up bringing was like…

  • she

    “G is a over active person in my opinion and would have been anxious and somewhat of a handful as a child” the question is how did his family reacted to him? It’s not his fault that he was born with ADD or ADHD. It’s like blaming a child for being diabetic or blaming a child for his short-sightedness – it’s ridiculous. The ways his family chose to deal with him and his temper – that’s what need to be considered

  • Oh dear

    @ former imber …, “Gina, Jeannia, whoever. She’s a friend of Butlers. That’s documented. But she’s not a celeb. She didn’t sign on to be under a microscope, and her engagement, non-engagement, friendship with Butler, should not be the subject of public psychological babble and rumors of breaking her engagement to be with Butler”.

    Alas the nature of showbusiness now if   a non celeb gets involved in what is perceived as romantic relationship with a celeb, then they are now open to gossip and scrutiny. Like that celebrity they have made that Faustian pact. But I do think it’s unfair that children of celebs are put under the public spotlight, afterall they didn’t choose to have celeb parents.

  • CJ

    @she…well since we didn’t live in Gerry’s household as he was growing up we cannot say for sure how he was treated by anyone in his family…I remember he said he used to fight all the time with his older brother, which is a normal sibling thing, over them having opposite views of opposing football teams..he said he was always competing with his brother over things…Gerry said he hated to lose at anything he did even with schoolmates too and would take things up a notch in order to win at games and the such..

    I think that G is close to his mother…being the youngest, she probably felt the need to protect him..she was probably aware of his anxious nature and treated him accordingly…from what he said she did make him do things on his own, like using a trolley to go get oil for their stove..and shopping on his own…now these are stories he has told so who knows if they are true or not…we can take him at his word or not..♥

  • she

    @CJ: yes none of us know his famiy or how he was raised but from the clues that he leave here and there we can learn something of how much emotional holding he experienced at home.
    you know that parents give roles to their children. It’s an unconscious process.I had this thought that maybe his mother had this wishfull thinking that her third baby will help her to keep the family together. She is not stupid and I believe she knew that her husbend is a problematic man so I have asked myself why enter another baby = another stress to the situation. and this baby failed in his mission that was given o him

  • please already…

    there is nothing wrong with Gerry he is just a man doing what rich powerfull good looking men do. stop turning men into wusses. stop trying to turn men into girls. men and women behave diffrenetly – it’s biology and there is a good reason for it. stop temparing with it becuse it can endanger humanity. the feminists ruined America with their cr@p. Every mother of a male child should realize that our society has declared war on masculinity.
    His masculinity is what makes Gerry so damn attarctive.

  • what gives???

    how come there are no tweets about Gerry tonight?
    after all it’s Friday night, he should be out on the town, yet where is he?
    Maybe he decided to saty in because it’s absolutly freezing in NYC, who knows?
    Probably he has Gina spending the night with him in sexual bliss, who knows?
    strange we haven’t heard anything about him in days.

  • Oh dear

    Oh and if they are dating that should be great news for the phannies. To them I think she’d be the perfect partner for him, because she’s virtually distinguishable from them – white, average looking, average height, a little overweight, middle aged woman. The phannies would be  ecstaticif they were really together, wouldn’t they?

  • Oh dear

    Oops should said “indistinguishable”. Typo.

  • what gives???

    @Oh dear:
    Yes, you’re so right. i already heard from some Pnannies and they really like the idea of GB dating Gina. they all say she is gorgeous (lol) and the best possible choice for him. they said they will be behind him if he marrieds her.
    yes, they like the idea of GB marying somoen in their image LOL
    Very funny.

  • she

    @CJ: Thank you CJ for sharing your thoughts with me. Enough digging for one day…♥

  • Oh dear

    How funny. Guess the phannies’ collective power of positive thinking and projection might finally have come true in the form of this Gina. It would be hilarious if he ends up with what is essentially a slightly more groomed phannie, who basically thinks he can do no wrong, ie a doormat partner. Oh my days, if he ends up with this Gina that phannies will stalk him forever. They’d realise they might have a really serious chance with Butler. Why do I get the feeling deep down he wouldn’t really mind that. Hehehe. Good for business. Keeps the cash rolling in. Clever boy.

    He’s hardly known well in Europe. And people don’t care about L’Oreal, it’s not high-end stuff in glam mags.
