Gerard Butler: Hawaiian Holiday!

Gerard Butler: Hawaiian Holiday!

Gerard Butler sports a messy head of hair while walking to the beach and watching the kiteboarders and windboarders on Wednesday (February 2) in Hawaii.

Later in the day, the 41-year-old Scottish actor went shirtless as he learned how to paddleboard.

While in Hawaii, Gerard also met up with pal Laird Hamilton and went jet skiing out in the ocean.

Last week, Gerard went partying at a club where he met up with Leonardo DiCaprio.

FYI: Gerard is carrying the “Fraid So” sandal by Sanuk.

Does anyone know what is on his medallion? Or were you EVEN noticing it?
He looks so toned – very healthy, these days. Good for him.

@rsm:

Meet you there!!! Shazam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well it looks like the Great Scot is having a nice little vacay. Good for him. Nice to see Barbados is a pudgy memory. I still think in some of these pics that he looks like my neighbor’s Old English Sheepdog when she is getting a bath with all her hair in her eyes.
.
Glad to see the hair is long and so is the beard. :)

They film both hawaii 50 and off the map in hawaii. now gerry is there. that is too much sex for one island.

So Swedish @ 02/03/2011 at 4:39 pm

@paisley please 1:

It´s either a tree or a egyptian head, like a pharaohs head in profile…
haha… I really don´t know!
Can someone enlighten us?! ;)

Oh no…the papps found him! I almost feel sorry for him…. But great pictures! =)

Razzie Award Nominee Gerard Butler.

And I wanted to say that I think GB has just the right amount of body hair. Not too much, not too little, just perfect. ;)

I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s wearing a “St. Christopher’s” medallion… after all St. Christopher is the Patron Saint of travelers.

@So Swedish:
Yes, it could be that and it also looks like a profile of some Roman emperor.

What a body. He’s got it all.

Oh mama!
.
(ya, I said it)

paisley please @ 02/03/2011 at 5:07 pm

Not bad for a 41 year old, eh?

Reportedly, he’s there with at least one of the producers of 300.

Could we be seeing him in the upcoming prequel, Xerxes?? Hope so!

And it’s just a matter of time, before the lei jokes, right?

Soon there will be pics of Gerry with some woman/women. Just wait…. LOL.

@Sofie: Maybe cause they weren’t as good as the new ones! Plus he’s wearing a wool cap in Hawaii!
Any other ideas?

paisley please @ 02/03/2011 at 5:09 pm

Six foot two and all MAN!!! Waiting for the pics of him in a grass skirt. (He’s been in a kilt before, afterall.) ; )

Oh My…Lord love a duck…he is so fine.

@550 (from last ) ….very funny LOL

@Amber (from last)…”why does he hide his gf”….you really have to ask…really?

@maison (from last)…maybe you do know who she is.

who needs to work out in a stuffy old gym…. when you can work out in Hawaii.Very nice Mr B.

So Swedish @ 02/03/2011 at 5:19 pm

oh great Scottish conquerer!

You look real good G. What you mean, you have a brain and feelings!?
Of course I know that. We can talk all about your feelings…..later…

spartacus,but a girl @ 02/03/2011 at 5:20 pm

Well,good link!! Hello to sophie…..Ijust love him,althought he is done.

I was still hanging around the old thread, and I wondered where everyone went! LOL. I see, I see. I wonder how those trunks are staying in place.

I love the one in wool cap. Oh those eyes. I don’t mind seeing him wearing a cap even it’s 85 degrees. Is this trip work related or mix of business and pleasure? Is this the first time he is pictured vacaying in HI? He should go to HI more often if he loves beaches/islands so much. So. Ameica is not the only place to hit the beaches. Hope to hear more news about his future projects or castings.

So Swedish @ 02/03/2011 at 5:33 pm

Take no notice of my last comment. I would never degrade myself or Gerry to such impure and not to say shallow thoughts.
He should be seen and respected for the man he is, no matter how (excellent) his physique might be.
Anything else would be just downright low.

Something I heard @ 02/03/2011 at 5:38 pm

WTF? He’s on his honeymoon?? Is this true?

spartacus,but a girl @ 02/03/2011 at 5:38 pm

So swedish,hats out for you! !

Just when I think I’m getting bored with him, he goes out and does something like this. He’s just reminding us there is no one finer.

Zoom in on this photo girls! Gerry’s happy trail is playing peek-a-boo under his swim trunks! :D

Everything about Gerry would be too inpure to discust and to search a meaning. Really??!!!! I think not. But still,he is tooo goooood for words. And this is proven by all of those who write here….bless you, cause otherwise I will be bored out of my mind.

When you get tired of looking at the eye candy read this. It has some important information.

Dang but that man is looking hot…and those trunks look like one good tug and they’d be at his ankles…

@lolita:

I LOVE that Lolita…and a perfect way to respond to these pictures.

So Weinstein is after distribution rights for Coriolanus. This could be amazing news for the film. Weinstein & company don’t shy away from pushing a film.

@lolita:

@Nuts:

Haha, you girls! ;D
It looks like it´s gonna be a teamwork kinda thing. :)

Gawd, he IS beautiful. But, I’m just wondering if this was a planned PR junket. At least in part. (Good work Rupert.) Now, don’t boo me. G’s got two films coming out this year. What better way to stir up early interest than parading all that hotness in public.

Weinstein? Things are looking up.

brooke london @ 02/03/2011 at 6:28 pm

I’d love to travel that happy trail anytime!!!! :P

He just reconfirmed why i think he’s so hot.

@Hmmmmm:
I bet those beach pics (pink shorts) from last year weren’t planned. Lol. ;)

Liposuction?

Oh, Thumbsie, give it a rest. Who goes through a whole thread giving thumbs down? You need to get a life.

@Georgia*:
Georgia, wtf are you talking about? if you know who the girl is, please say so and we’ll be greatly appreciative of your knowledge.
Otherwise, stop acting as if you know more than you actually do – it’s getting tiresome.
Bottom line, do you know who this girl might be?

@Question:
The girl in the photo is not in any way romantically involved with Butler, and that’s all I’m going to say.

Interesting @ 02/03/2011 at 7:04 pm

@boston61:
Close. Not liposuction, but another procedure called CoolSculpting. If you look closely at this picture of him in Hawaii
http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2516557/gerard-butler-windboarding-hawaii-02/fullsize/
you will see his stomach looks a bit different – it’s hard to explain but I have seen this happen with people who had this procedure done. It takes about 3 months for the skin to go back to being almost perfect and for the stubborn fat deposits to dissolve, but you start noticing the difference already after 3 weeks or so. Here is the procedure http://www.coolsculpting.com/en-us/photo-gallery/case-1.cfm
.
Look if he had it done, good for him. There are fat areas on the body that no amount of exercising can get rid of, especially when we age. It’s usually the mid section for both men and women, the buttocks and other problem areas for women. This procedure is non-invasive and very affordable. It freezes the fat cells and then they get flushed out by the body over a 3-4 month period. A person can lose up to 12% of the fat cells but you have to be close to your ideal weight, and you can’t be too thin either. Better results on men because they have no stretch marks. It’s possible he had it done and there is no down time or recovery time so he was able to do whatever he wanted while in LA for the last month or so.

@Anonymous:
And how do you know that? Are you his personal assistant or do you just follow him around all over the place like a retched stalker. It’s just interesting how you can make such adamant declarations of knowledge as if you know the guy personally.
Either you have knowledge, or you’re just a wannabee GB insider. Which is it?

good grief @ 02/03/2011 at 7:13 pm

@Interesting: Oh, good grief.

hot!!!!!!!!!!

stupidfans @ 02/03/2011 at 7:28 pm

How much time left before he enters the pierced ear years?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ng6uz8VMC3k

@ Question

Any need for that?
The girl in the pic isn’t involved with Gerry….and that’s all i’m saying.

@ Interesting

Do you spend much time trawling cosmetic surgery sites? Nothing better to do?

at least a real man,

@Mississippi:

You are right and they have been backing some of the best movies. They have good “eyes” for a quality product. Very good news for Coriolanus. Given the political tumult around the middle east with the heads of the states being driven out, the underlying message and theme of this movie becomes very relevant.

Thanks stella for the link.

Go get a life and stop pretending to know things lol

I knew that the better tone of this thread was just too good to last.

stupidfans @ 02/03/2011 at 7:46 pm

@Anonymous: I don’t think any woman is “romantically” involved with Gergolo. It’s more hit and run.

letsbehonesthere @ 02/03/2011 at 7:47 pm

@Georgia*:
I’m pretty sure you don’t know A THING about what woman Gerry is involved with. If you do, give us a hint, just ONE. OK?

@Anonymous:
Just like that out of nowhere, you know her. How convenient for you.
LMAO, I see you’re posting under two monikers

@Sofie:
Probably Caligula, he he.

Just to stop any rumors before they start … Laird Hamilton is straight. He is married to gorgeous volleyball player/model Gabby Reece.

Anonymous @ 02/03/2011 at 7:59 pm

@Question:
Yes, I do recognize the girl and she’s with the other guy, not Gerard. Whether the girl and the other guy are friends or more, I don’t know.

So I see you’re accusing me of being two people here. I’m not. What other poster am I supposed to be, if I may ask? Manny?

Georgia* is a Loon @ 02/03/2011 at 8:05 pm

Georgia used to post over at WO site. She acted like she “knew” stuff over there too. She said she was from the UK, but then claimed to be in Uruguay when Gerry was and then in LA – and acted like she was going to the same parties as he was. She wants everyone to think she is either one of his friends or someone in his circles.
She left WO after people called her out on it and/or ignored her.
Ignore her.

Wow, a half naked Butler! Woo Hoo!

Cora, thanks for your eagle eyes. A dirty mind is a terrible thing to waste. ;) ” Happy trails to you…….”

Interesting, If he did have such a procedure, I would have suggested taking the fat cells from his belly and add them to his gluteus maximus where it would do the most good. Then, he would be perfect, maybe…..on a physical level of course. okay, I admit it! He’s hot! and so am I right now….. phew!

I think the man looks great – looks like he’s trying to get some rest in and maybe some surfing lessons for an upcoming movie.

@Georgia* is a Loon: she still posts there if she’s GA.

ooooohhhh now listen up thats a man a real man not to skinny not to flabby looking good gerry looking real freaking good ops i think i just drooled on myself hehehe

Nice tan. I love all the dirty minds posting on here lol. This place can be so fun sometimes. :)

Well ain’t this nice….
If I’m a Loon….what does that make SOME of you.

@ I Think….I’m not GA from WO (Thank God).

@ Georgia is a Loon….why not use your real name next time
like@Nuts who is beacon1 on WO….get back to your “dreams”as that’s all you’ll have.

stupidfans @ 02/03/2011 at 8:41 pm

@haha: Yes, LAIRD is straight. No one is 100% sure on Gergolo.

Of course marriage and children don’t necessarily guarantee someone is straight. There are a lot of men who are double dipping.

@MiaW: Why Caligula? Why not Nero or Julius Caesar, LOL?

@Georgia*:

Why are you involving me in this? I haven’t said a word to you or about you here.

oldbutnotdead @ 02/03/2011 at 10:29 pm

@So Swedish: That was funny! Oldbutnotdead.

justsayin'too @ 02/03/2011 at 10:50 pm

He has had extensive dental work. If you watch “Lucy Sullivan” on you tube you can see his original smile which was his natural teeth and uneven. He probably has veneers, which were very large in 300. We Americans have a “thing” about perfect teeth. LOL

WOW! he looks so much better! he was getting a little pudgy there for a while..

DISGUSTING! Put a f****** shirt on you douche! That has to be the single most disturbing abdominal sight I have ever glanced at.

Sorry if this link has been posted. You have to hunt through or run the slide show about 3/4 of the way through but there are some great dramatic shots of Gerry and Ralph in Coriolanus.

http://larryhorricks.com/

The only reason I’m posting this link is because Heigl is now defined as Gerard Butler’s co-star. Not the other way around.

http://au.ibtimes.com/articles/108219/20110203/new-year-s-eve-katherine-heigl-halle-berry.htm

The Coriolanus photos are fantastic. I can’t wait for this film. I also liked that Weinstein wants to release it to coordinate with award nominations. Harvey usually backs a winner. Fingers crossed.

suck in that gut, fatso @ 02/03/2011 at 11:57 pm

I can’t believe so many women are drooling over this mess of a man! There are men his same age right in your hometowns that look 10x better than he does…and by Hollywood standards he’s flabby and gross.

A hot middle-aged actor with a body and career to match:

HUGH JACKMAN

P.S. the photos were sent in by his people. the paps can care less about his c-lister!

@suck in that gut, fatso: I would believe that

curious cat @ 02/04/2011 at 12:07 am

How can he be so near and yet so far. I think he looks great.

thank you higher power. This man is a gift. Sorry haters. He is gorgeous. The hair, the face, the body, and most of all the silly, fun-loving personality. Someone that gorgeous on the outside is so self deprecating in reality. So many roles where he goes to the dark side, but he’s still just a Scots who has a lot of fun going to Welly Boots with his mum.

@Wham bang:
“a Scots who has a lot of fun going to Welly Boots with his mum”
—————————————————————————————
That so cute! Has he said something about this? Sorry for my English :(

I’m going home in April. But, I hope I’ll come back here in about 4 months. Scotland is the best place to live if you have a job. Beautiful country. AND, as far as I’m concerned, Butler should come back here to live. What’s up with him on hot islands? He’s sure a celtic soul. Gerard on a board is fun, but it is so fake to his personality.

Sukar. I’m holding my breath for what Egypt will experience today. Some say it will be bad. I hope you are safe. Dr. Hawass was on CNN last night. He thinks the museum is safe and any damage will be restored.

@stella:
That last pic (if it’s still the last pic) is just beautiful – thanks so much for sharing! :D

@PsychoB:
How do you know he doesn’t respect the women he sleeps with? Do you have any proof? We’re you on the receiving end?
Just interested to know what gives you such idea.

I do not care. Is he gay? Is he a ho? He’s just beautiful. Damn that man is hot.

CorBlimey @ 02/04/2011 at 1:06 am

@CorBlimey:
[Never mind.. it worked.. :P]

@me:
The correct answers are:
#1 – No, not at all.
#2 – Yes, very much so.

Oh wow those pictures are gorgeous! And I don’t mean in a physically good looking way. The sadness and anger in his is face was captured beautifully. Can’t wait for this movie!

@CorBlimey: It’s been manna from heaven in Butlerdom today — one gorgeous photo after another!

Some of us love him. Some don’t. But we are all here because of this amazing human. Me? I love him. I love his eyes. They are beyond the ages. I have never seen such expressive eyes.

CorBlimey @ 02/04/2011 at 1:42 am

@Cora:
I agree completely!
I think I’ve just figured out why I like this man so much. He is a man who can show emotion beautifully – I don’t know about anyone else, but men are “rugged” here in Australia and can tend to be very much detached from anything “emotional” (or are on the other end of the spectrum, and are overtly feminine and emotional – ick), but Gerard manages to somehow maintain that ruggedness whilst being able to fully show a whole range of emotion – and that is, quite simply, breathtaking.
These photos are just awesome.

oh please... @ 02/04/2011 at 1:48 am

Wow talk about his fans looking at him through rose coloured glasses…..he DOESN’T look hot but has man boobs, a pudgy stomach and a bloated face……get real…..lol.

CorBlimey @ 02/04/2011 at 2:02 am

@oh please…:
Begging your pardon, but who ever said that we can only look at a man in admiration if he doesn’t have “man boobs, a pudgy stomach and a bloated face” (as you put it)?? I am not that unrealistic, nor that shallow, when it comes to admiring others – and for my part, I love that Gerard is just a man, imperfections and all. I would love to have someone that comfortable in their own skin in my life. Furthermore, a man who cares that much about his appearance is, in my humble opinion, not someone I would ever find attractive. Vanity, self-centredness and arrogance are all borne of that kind of behavior – and none of those feature on my “Most Attractive Traits in a Man” list. Sorry.
.
Each to their own I guess. It would certainly be a boring world if we all looked or thought the same.. :D

Georgia* is a Loon @ 02/04/2011 at 2:20 am

@Georgia*:

No Georgia is not GA who still posts over at WO. But Georgia does claim to be from the UK, but then in Uruguay and recently L.A.
I’m sure next she’ll be in Hawaii.
Ignore her. She is just looking for attention and making up sh/t about “knowing” inside info.

@CC and @CorBlimey: Yes, I agree! It comes down to passion, doesn’t it? He’s a passionate guy in many areas of his life. Gerry’s blood runs hot. I think a lot of his charisma comes from the fact that he’s hot-blooded in body and mind both.

Georgia* is a Fake @ 02/04/2011 at 2:26 am

Yeah she is. Too Bad she has to stick with such nonsense.

Kidding me??? @ 02/04/2011 at 2:27 am

So Swedish @ 02/04/2011 at 7:47 am

I like japanese interviews with celebs, they are so funny with their sound effects and bright colors everywhere. Kinda cartoonish.

Just watched some of those with Gerry, very entertaining.

Anyway, will Gerry be settling down anytime soon?
He´s been talking about it for years.
(I´m not necessarily talking about setling down with a woman, more like taking a step back from public life).
And that he wants to live in a more quiet place with good nature. He doesn´t like loud cities with all the stress and attention that comes with it, like London.

He seems to have different sides, our little Scotsman. The big city boy who likes parties, adventures, a fast life.

And the deeper seeking quiet liking live-on-a-cliff-by-the-wild-sea man.

@Georgia*:

Wow, Georgia. You are a piece of work.

curious cat @ 02/04/2011 at 8:56 am

Why do peeps have to quarrel so much on these threads? If you think GB is gorgeous or a fat bloated mess you are entitled to your opinion. But how can you tell others to “get a life” when you obviously don’t have one if posting on these sites is an indication of NO LIFE? Some of us find threads on GB and other people and issues an interesting diversion, and enjoy getting information and perspectives from around the world n a variety of websites. Some peeps post so much and so often here I think they must be on the site day and night.

Personally, I take the middle ground after looking at all the pix. I think GB has looked better. No 300 body here. But he looks pretty much like the average middle-aged man in that respect, if a bit more handsome than many. Get a little objectivity, those with rose-colored glasses. A REAL MAN? SIGH? Come on. He’s an ACTOR. In real life he is no more REAL MAN than many men you meet every day. He’s a movie star. With an image. When he is in movie battles they are choreographed so he WINS. Men (and women too!) are out there in the real world fighting real battles in which the outcome isn’t guaranteed.

With his complexion I just hope he is pouring on the sunscreen in one of the skin cancer capitals of the world.

btw, @Oy, people in Hawaii are notorious for loving Spam. Yuk. I wouldn’t eat it but it was big during rationing in WWII in America and Hawaii people never got over their love affair with the canned stuff. You see it everywhere. Spam musubi in convenience stores. Spam on restaurant menus. They even have Spam cooking contests and Spamfests. Gourmet Spam recipes? Each to his own.

In the interests of research, I called some media people on Maui and they didn’t even know GB was there and couldn’t care less. So many celebrities vacation in the islands and even have homes here, and movies are made here, so islanders are used to it and usually too polite (or bored with it) to bother them. The islands aren’t teeming in paparazzi although local photographers are happy to make a buck if someone tips them off to a celebrity in town and will buy pix.

I learned a few interesting tidbits. Kris Kristofferson, who owns a home in Hana, Maui, spends time here, gets involved in the community and is considered a real nice guy. Pierce Brosnan who has a home on Kauai, also gets involved in the community and is much admired for regular guyness. Oprah Winfrey owns more than one home in the islands, rarely comes here and doesn’t get involved in the community.
She can be forgiven I guess since she is so involved elsewhere, like building a school for girls in Africa.
Point is, celebrities are in our midst all the time. Was GB shopping for a vacation home here? I don’t know.

I am as clueless as anyone about this visit. There are direct flights from California cities to Maui, bypassing Honolulu, but seeing the pix I feel sure GB did fly into Honolulu. If he arrived by private helicopter on Maui, it’s highly unlikely he took a helicopter all the way from L.A. :) He must have flow into Honolulu and transferred to a chopper to Maui, a 20-minute flight by jet, not sure how long by chopper.

If anyone hears that he is on Oahu, I’ll try to chase him down just tor the fun and challenge of it, but it would be madness to buy an airline ticket to Maui, rent a car and try to find him. I ain’t got that kind of time and money. I have a guess as to what part of Maui he’s on from the pix, but not sure. Chances are he may not even be staying in a hotel, but renting a private home or condo. He may be gone already. He has said he is too much Type A to spend more than a couple or three days beaching out.

And why do people keep accusing posters of being Manny under a sock? I kind of know Manny in the virtual world of the Net, for several years. She is a very strong and outspoken person who expresses strong opinions, as y’all know. Can’t imagine her hiding under a sock, ever. Nor do I. And the person who posts as CC is someone else, not Curious Cat.

Have a great weekend, y’all.

Lolita thank you, you’re an angel

I find the quarrels and the biting each others head off a bit sad, but at the same time you get used to it. Hey, it´s the net. Anonymous bit’hing comes with it.

The relentless thumbs down to just about everyone who dares to comment on these Gerry threads is just hilarious though.
Just imaginining someone taking the time and go thru every page and thumb everyone down… I don´t know, it amuses me.

One of my friends just went on a date with a supermodel who’s been hanging out with Gerard Butler. California 2011. about 10 hours ago via web

Oh, and last night I had dinner with one of Cameron Diaz’s best friends. about 10 hours ago via web

Not Rob either!!

@Jen:

?????? Who is Rob?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I can smell him from here. What a flabby stinky looking hobo

No, GFW isn’t doing that for these, please. An why? I’ve written him sans suit for years! (wicked grin) He’s been accepted “as is” unconditionally loved for years through all physical and mental ups and downs. His getting healthier is for him, not anyone else, as it should be. And, she’s no longer a fantasy either. Never has been. She couldn’t be more real.
.
Miora has an imaginary relationship with Ger. Even he knows that. Her ugly PMs to me at dot.dont were shared. I hope when he sees her again he snubs her or at least she’ll see a different look on his face. His fans don’t really want know what he thinks of people who sabotage their lives following his.
.
Love the photo of Gerry balancing on the board. Amazing concentration! The water is beautiful. Glad he’s having fun and learning something new?
~K

PS, Love the lost in thought photo too.
.
As he’s playing catch up at growing up he’s becoming more serious. I love that. It’s time.
.
Watching Gerry occupy, embrace and ultimately own a multifaceted role like the one he plays in Coriolanus, and especially Machine Gun Preacher, is a rare treat and absolute joy.
.
Really hope Charile Rose invites them both on his show this time!

oldbutnotdead @ 02/04/2011 at 1:32 pm

You’ll have to get used to GB always saying what he thinks sells the most. Actions speak louder than words, so If he really wanted that quiet life, he’d have it.

So Swedish @ 02/04/2011 at 2:23 pm

@realitycheck:

I know that. I´m just stunned he never get caught on it, like someone asking him “when will you move to a quieter place?” etc. But he would probably glide through that question too.

So how do we know what is really true, and what is just for pleasing?

curious cat @ 02/04/2011 at 2:31 pm

@Nuts:

Yes, I think they are PR photos too. It seems highly unlikely that paps would just happen to be at the airport when GB arrives by chopper, or happen to be at the beach where he was surfing and paddle boarding. Especially if his visit has been unannounced.

He could have been anywhere on Maui but there is one beach that is especially famous for wind surfing, which I think was mentioned in the text somewhere, although we didn’t see HIM doing that. That beach is on the opposite side of the island from where the resort hotels are in a pretty rural area. It’s not far to drive across the island but I would guess he has private accommodations in the mountains near the beach I mention. There are plenty of homes and condos on all the islands available for vacation rental through agencies. The friend he traveled with or a GB staffer could easily make a reservation in their own name and pay for the place, unless it’s a free place through someone he knows or they know. He would never have to register under his name anywhere so nobody would be tipped off that way, or know he was around unless they spotted him by some random stroke of fate. Didn’t someone tweet about seeing him in a Maui restaurant?
Another thing, I don’t think that many people in Hawaii know who he is. He isn’t on the wave lengths of most people I know here. If they have seen him on screen it’s most likely in Phantom, and they wouldn’t recognize him in real life.
So yes, I’d say the evidence suggests those photos were taken by his own people and released for PR.

curious cat @ 02/04/2011 at 2:33 pm

Yes, I see the text does mention kiteboarding and windboarding. So I think my guess is pretty good as to where he was.

realitycheck @ 02/04/2011 at 2:35 pm

@so Swedish

You don’t, not really. You just have to hang around for a long time and watch his actions. After a while, it becomes clear what is important to GB.

He is no different from other actors. They have to sell themselves and so they do. I seldom pay attention to interviews. They are usually given because a movie is being released, so it’s sell, sell, sell.

@curious cat: The paps may have been tipped off, but I’d bet the farm “his own people” did not take the photos. That isn’t how the world of celeb photography works. They brand their photos.

@Nuts: There was a brunette AND a blonde in the helicopter with him. Both female.

Kidding me is not me. I don’t socks. I only use Manny only so my haters know how to find me. :)

The skin around his belly button doesn’t look taut. I wonder if he really did have a procedure done. He is looking good and like he is in shape it just puzzles me why some of the skin seems to be hanging on aournd that belly button…

this is a very interesting statement. i also think he is growing up but it’s hard to put your finger on his exact transformation. What do you think he’s doing exactly? In what way do you think he’s growing up?

@Pfeiffer…:

Well, I’m holding The Gerard Butler Handbook in my hands.

Just what I figured. A matter of fact biography. Then a filmography. Then a chapter on each TV show and film in which he has starrred. Including a breakdown of the plots, cast with small bios of the more important cast members, filming locations and descriptions, complete soundtracks info, trivia, references, external links, box office and critical reviews, crews and DVD information. Plus photos.
If the films are from a book or play, you get a bit about the author such as Chekhov for The Cherry Orchard. Different productions of it etc. It’s a resource book in an 8×14 format.

It was shipped from Mississauga, Ontario, by DHL Express.

Now for a kicker – a portion of the proceeds go to “Wikimedia Foundation to support their mission.”

There are many actors/singers/celebs that you “get to know” over the years. You learn their personalities, what they like and dislike etc.

I am not his biggest fan, I have only seen some interviews, some gossip. I have not seen all of his movies either. Maybe that matters, but I have a hard time finding HIM if you know what I mean. I see his public self, but the real Gerry?

Maybe that just means that he is a professional and hides very well his true self from the public and only shows his “show business self”.

I just can´t grasp him. Who is he, really?

He must be more than the (alleged) womanizer, the traveller, the joker and fun lover, the actor…

oldbutnotdead @ 02/04/2011 at 3:55 pm

@Question:

I think the main issue with thumbing down the flabby sayers is that they are “professionals” who haunt this site and others, attempting to stir things up. If it were just an opinion, maybe ok, but so many are mean spirited. The net really allows the worst of people to come out. The regularly negative ones just can’t let go, they have to attack, attack all the time, and usually not even in a manner that is articulate or informing.

oldbutnotdead @ 02/04/2011 at 3:58 pm

@realitycheck: You are right, the interviews are usually connected with movies. I have seen most of GB’s and they are entertaining and amusing. He is not afraid of an audience, interacts with them, and makes them laugh. He has acknowledged at least once that he did 750 interviews in three weeks once. His earlier interviews on Leno when his accent was thicker are very amusing, since he is so extroverted. Funny stuff about the kilt mistakes he made at family weddings, for example. Dont judge GB’s interviews by the other Hollywood stick figures.

@oldbutnotdead: Agree. I really love listening to his stories on talk shows. He’s nothing like the usual boring celebs pushing a film. Of course, that’s why he’s there, but that isn’t the main topic of discussion.

Looking old @ 02/04/2011 at 4:42 pm

he’s looking pretty bad for a 41yo man. there are lots of men in their 40s at the office where i work and they look a lot younger than him. if he has so much money why can’t he take better care of himself? he’s got wrinkles and a flabby body!!

@DIRTY MANHO: Don’t you have anything else to do? Sad. I know we aren’t supposed to feed the trolls, but ENOUGH. We know you don’t mean it. You are just being stupid for recreational purposes. And again, sad.

Hats off to all the women on this board, curious cat included, who are surrounded by so much male beauty in their lives that they consider G average looking in these pics! Why, I skipped a heartbeat when I saw them and no talk of ulterior motives or STDs is gonna spoil my pleasure seeing G the fittest I’ve known in a long time.

The photographer made Gals take down the Coriolanus shots, according to WO. I went to Gals and when you hit on the little ones still up on the home page, it says error. Odd, because Gals always makes such a big deal about getting permission to post photos. Maybe they thought because you can access them, they were up for grabs.

@thirtysomething: I think the flab, blob and slob posters are all the same nutcase.

I agree that he’s a man-ho and he’s very UNNATTRACTIVE. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. I mean just look at him. He’s wrinly and hairy and has a gut! hahahaha

STOMACHE??? @ 02/04/2011 at 5:30 pm

I’m a Gerard fan but WTF is wrong with his gut???? It’s like a 6 pack combined with a beer belly. Like something weirdly in between. Not flattering at all.

overweight @ 02/04/2011 at 5:31 pm

not looking all that good. he seems tired and a little overweight.

@STOMACHE???:
.
I agree. That is why I was wondering if he had had a procedure. The belly button area looks really suspect. Not complaining cause he looks good but it does look a little off to me too.

Gerard Looks Sloppy @ 02/04/2011 at 5:37 pm

Im with you “he’s gross” posters. Sorry there are some younger women here who think this guy is nasty. his article is top of the page so you will get more than his “regular” posters – sorry.
he’s disgusting and YES he has a cross between a beer belly and a four pack abs??
he needs to exercise or lift weights. yuck

Flabby Tummy @ 02/04/2011 at 5:38 pm

@Manny:
LIPO??

@Flabby Tummy:
.
I wondered that too. The belly button looks a lot like it did in Barbados. Not taught like a the rest of him.

He’s still just got a little tummy despite all the exercise because he did develop a gut last year. It’s hard to get rid of, but he’s done a great and realistic job.

Gee, you people who work with all these hunks, you are SOOO lucky. Haha. I look around where I work and even the ones who go to the gym are about as charasmatic and/or sexy as a dish rag. It takes more than a body to have what Butler has. He’s the whole package IMHO.

That's a NO pack @ 02/04/2011 at 5:50 pm

I think it’s like when you put on weight but you still have some muscle underneath so it just looks like a GROSSSSSSSS six pack! LOL

this man is such a fugly butterface. only way i’d bone him is if i was very drunk, and if he’d put a paper bag over his head, and if he’d keep his shirt on to cover up his gut!!! i’m no Victoria Secret model but every girl needs to have some standards!

@karen: He has money and fame. That’s what most women find so attractive. If he was a carpenter who lived down the street from you, then you’d never pay him a second look.

Women who don’t care about fame and money aren’t bowled over by him, which is probably why he surrounds himself with women who are looking for those qualities.

Well as a 40 something year old gal, I really can’t be too picky b/c your body is just NOT THE SAME at our age than in your 20s. But I have to say that with all the money Mr. Butler has, he could certainly invest some into getting a personal trainer and waxing or shaving. He would look much better.

He looks like Shizz @ 02/04/2011 at 6:03 pm

How can any woman sleep with this old bear?! I wouldn’t want that flabby gut and that hairy chest rubbing all over me!! (VOMIT)

Okay so wasn’t this guy in 300?! WTF happened to his hot bod???? He went from being a HOTTIE to a NOTTIE.

Gerry is cute but he’s certainly not the hottest man around. He has tons of physical flaws as many of the ladies here have pointed out. The type of women who like Gerry like him for his fame and money. Not because he’s a hottie stud or because he has an amazing personality. Many of his “lady friends” are goldiggers and famewhores.

Not a TROLL @ 02/04/2011 at 6:13 pm

I’m not a troll but I have to admit that I never understood what women see in this man. Hairy, overweight, no muscles, sleeps around a lot. I mean how is that attractive in a man? I prefer to be a fan of actors that are hot and have some dignity. Not of the ones that will sleep with any chick in a nightclub they just met.

It's just a matter of taste @ 02/04/2011 at 6:18 pm

I know Gerard is far from phsyical perfection but there’s just something about him that some women find hot! It’s probably older girls – like over 35 – that find him cute. Cuz I know chest hair is kinda gross in your 20s. It wasn’t until I turned 36 that I thought chest hair was sexy on a man and that I started to crush on men like Gerard. But I understand why lots of younger women under 35 might think he’s gross looking. It’s a matter of taste which changes as you age. There’s no right or wrong.

@It’s just a matter of taste: I agree 100% with this. I’m in my 40s and I think he’s sooo hot. My 2 little sisters who are in college think he’s ugly and looks old. I probably would have thought like them if I was their age. But what you like starts to change as you get older and older.

So let me get this straight ….. on the last thread, Gerry was allegedly too thin at the Premiere Party in LA and in Hawaii he’s magically fat and overweight?
.
Gerry’s weight was perfectly fine at the Premiere Party and it was perfectly fine a mere six later in Hawaii. JMO

Observation @ 02/04/2011 at 6:27 pm

@Nuts:

You wanted photos. You’ve got photos. Does it really matter?

I don’t think there is an actor out there that gets ripped apart more than Gerry. He put his body through hell for 300. So he has stated that now he is taking better care of himself…and it shows. His 300 body was unrealistic. His body now is more in line for someone his age. He looks good…love the hair. You can’t abuse your body with the up and down weight gains and losses…he knows that now and he is working to keep a realistic balance. He is more manly and handsome now. I’m glad he is not one of those pretty..femmie looking men. I’ll take his rugged look any day over pretty boy. He is a good arm piece in my book. He radiates sex appeal.

Momma of 2 @ 02/04/2011 at 6:30 pm

@Cathy: Cathy, I’m in my early 40s and you have a point that older women are more likely to think he’s hot than girls in their 20s. But I think it’s also that girls/young women nowadays are very different than when we were young. They are much more into the physical – like 6 packs and muscular arms and zero wrinkles and white bleached teeth. Gender equality is bringing the same pressures women have always had over to men. So there’s just different expectations now from male stars. Gerard has lots of fans but not as many in their 20s as an actor of his type would have had back in the 1950s.

@Cathy: Well, I’m in my 20s – 27 – and I think he’s the hottest thing on earth. I think it’s more the Beiber /Ephron fan types who wouldn’t like him and that’s understandable. And tho I think they are gross, I would not be the least interested in going on their sites and saying so.I don’t even look at them. It takes all kinds.

I got sidetracked after reading the crazies, I wanted to thank Stella for the update on the book. I don’t think I’ll get it, but if someone enjoys having all the data in once place and not having to search the internet, it sounds like a good buy.

Ana Banana @ 02/04/2011 at 6:46 pm

@KDHT: Well I’m 25 and I think he looks old, wrinkly, fat and busted. And Zac Ephron is a 23/24 year old man he’s not a 16 year old teeny bopper like Justin Bieber. I’m not a major Zac fan but I do think he’s MUCH better looking than Gerard. You can tell that Gerard is letting himself go. BIG TIME.

@Momma of 2: “Gerard has lots of fans but not as many in their 20s as an actor of his type would have had back in the 1950s.” THIS EXACTLY. You basically hit the nail on the head. I don’t think it’s a lot of trolls just repeating their comments. I think there’s lots of women – esp younger women – who genuinely think Gerard is ugly. And it’s b/c expectations of what men should look like have changed. And now there’s a lot more pressure to be perfect, the same type of pressure women have had since the beginning of time. But we’re just now starting to see it applied to men. This is why Gerry gets dumped on so much. If it was 1955 you’d probably have even teen girls crushing on him! LOL

Some of you people amaze me….you don’t even know the guy and yet you can make all kinds of assumptions about him. So what if he’s not perfect! He’s a nice guy…doesn’t smell (at least the time I met him and he’d been filming in 90 degree temps…on a motorcycle) and was so sweet to us watching him film. He even was nice enough to come over to the three of us women and give us a hug. BTW, he smelled very clean. He doesn’t owe any of us anything…except a good performance!

This STD stick is prob crawling with diseases!!

curious cat @ 02/04/2011 at 6:56 pm

@thirtysomething:

You say:

“Hats off to all the women on this board, curious cat included, who are surrounded by so much male beauty in their lives that they consider G average looking in these pics! Why, I skipped a heartbeat when I saw them and no talk of ulterior motives or STDs is gonna spoil my pleasure seeing G the fittest I’ve known in a long time.”

Surrounded by so much male beauty we consider him average looking?!!! That’s the kind of snarky sarcasm that doesn’t go over well with some of us, Thirtysomething. It’s uncalled for and immature.

In my case, and I am the only poster you name, you misconstrued my words, my dear. There’s no doubt that he’s aging. Even a Gerry worshipper like you must see that.

He no longer looks young like “Gus.” And he doesn’t look like King Leonidas either.

Did you notice that I did say he is better looking than many men his age? “Average” referred to his current fitness compared with the way he looked in “300″ and compared with other men I see his age, at my gym, for instance. They have a decent amount of male muscle mass, albeit with signs of aging, but don’t look ripped like professional body builders or like King Leo in “300″.

Sure, he looked a lot more fit in “300″ than he does now, but he himself said he worked out six hours a day for several months before shooting started to get that physique and injured himself in several ways. He admitted he must have been nuts to put himself through that. I recall him saying, “I don’t know what I was thinking.”

Unless men ARE professional body builders, they don’t have six hours a day to work out and it would be unrealistic to expect it. They have jobs and other obligations, and if they are keeping themselves reasonably fit and and healthy that’s plenty.

We know from GB’s own admissions and numerous reports, not to mention just looking at him over the past few years, that he “wasn’t born in a gym” as he puts it, that he loves to eat, including rich desserts, has to watch his weight and seems to show a natural tendency toward beefiness as he ages. Remember him rushing nude into the ocean in “Mrs. Brown.” What a skinny young thing he was then (with his “member” waving in the breeze. ;)

He’s over 40 now, and he looks it. Nothing wrong with that.

So skip all the heartbeats you like, but don’t try to tell other people how they should feel. And that goes for the poster who said people who disagree with her opinion need their eyes examined.

Some people think he’s gorgeous, some think he looks gross and unappealing, and some of us, in the middle of the extremes, just think he’s fine but human and that we are realistic and balanced. :)

And btw, I would ignore stories of STDs because nobody has produced any proof of that.

Have a nice weekend.

Men in their 40s always crush on young girls and they even date and marry young girls without any shame whatsoever! So what if you think Zac Ephron is cute? Or any other young actor in his 20s for that matter! Nothing wrong with that! Stop being such a lil lady from the 1960s.

curious cat @ 02/04/2011 at 7:04 pm

@It’s just a matter of taste:

This I don’t. Chest hair is gross to women in their 20s? Since when? Lots of men naturally have chest hair. They have facial hair. So what?

Sorry, I meant this I dont get.

gilda the good @ 02/04/2011 at 7:07 pm

I lurk around lots of Butler sites because I’m one of those people who enjoy reading about him and I think he’s gorgeous.
I do want to make an observation across all the boards. His fans are too overprotective. Lighten up. Some are even mad at TMZ because they jokingly asked if Laird got Butlered. It was just plain funny. They didn’t mean it. He doesn’t need all these mommies. Margaret is enough in that role. But really, someone can observe that he looks bored or tired and the fangs immediately come out. He sure inspires a crazy loyalty among some of those who have fallen for him. A swipe at Butler is regarded as a personal swipe at them. I guess that’s a good thing??? The only thing that tops it are the Brad-Angie fanatics.

Well I’m an “old hag” and although Zacky isn’t my cup of tea I do love Henry Cavill who is 26. He’s in Showtime’s ‘The Tudors’ and will now be playing Superman in the big Hollywood blockbuster film. I also think Gerard is cute & I watch all his movies but he’s nowhere near as hot as he used to be when he filmed ’300′. There’s no denying that. Now if a magical genie were to allow me the chance to spend one night with either man I would have to choose HENRY CAVILL 100% times over Gerard. He looks good for his age but let’s be honest.

Melanie loves '300' @ 02/04/2011 at 7:11 pm

@ curious cat: I think she means that girls in their 20s are more used to the sleek tanned muscular guys like Kellan Lutz. The chest hair tends to be more popular with older women. Girls in their 20s are used to seeing the clean shaven (or clean waxed) young guys that you see in the gym.

I have never thought about Gerry as being hairy. (Except his beard and that gorgeous stuff on his head.) Hell, he isn’t hairy. Have you seen Alec Baldwin…any of the Baldwins for that. Lots of dude’s even have hairy backs. Gerry doesn’t even have much hair on his arms or legs. What the H are you talking about?

He is so Hot….

I prefer Gerry right now to what he looked like in 300. I’ve never been into big bulging muscles. I think he’s much better looking and sexier than when he was Gus. (Not that he wasn’t hot.)

@haha: Agree. He’s not a hairy guy. I’m not into hairy. If you want to talk hairy, look at Sean Connery in those old James Bond movies. ICK. And Tom Selleck would never make it today as a hunk with all that chest hair. Again ICK.

curious cat @ 02/04/2011 at 7:30 pm

@stella:

You are right. I probably misspoke. No, his “own people” probably didn’t actually shoot the pictures. I think I, and a couple of others, simply didn’t think the news media in Hawaii found out about his visit on their own, and the media folk I spoke to on Maui said they didn’t even know or care that he was there. So his people may have contacted someone to shoot the photos, which makes them PR-generated. Hawaii doesn’t swarm with paps. Somebody had to be in the know, had to be hired.

If you lose weight naturally you do not have skin loose like that. If you lose weight unnaturally and really fast your skin does not have time to tighten naturally. G wasn’t that heavy that his skin wouldn’t have naturally tightened if he lost the weight the normal way.
I must be lucky because I agree that his body needs some work even for a 40year old. I am surrounded by his age of men. (3 older brothers and a boyfriend and all their friends) and I see most in bathing suits all summer. Most men carry their weight in their gut. But unlike women they seem to be able to get rid of it easily (except the love handles).

Observation @ 02/04/2011 at 7:43 pm

@curious cat:

Does it matter?

All this talk about hairy or not hairy reminds me of Gerry telling in some interview about having to be shaved all over for 300. If I had only known I would have volunteered.

And I’m with those who don’t see him as hairy – not at all compared to most regular guys his age. Ever been on the beach? LOL. I also agree that a lot of guys in the business get shaved or waxed especially when working, so who knows who is hairy or not? Except I read an article once about Jake G being really hairy and having to keep it under control with products. And on the other side of the fence, all those tales of the Kardashians having waxings and electrolysis.

curious cat @ 02/04/2011 at 7:46 pm

For the record I do think he’s attractive or I probably wouldn’t be here. But nobody deserves blind worship. And I think the proof in the pudding would be if I actually met the guy in person and had a chance to observe him. What would be my instinctive, visceral reaction? I don’t know.

@PsychoB: I don’t know if he’s had lipo or not, but there is also another explanation. Loose skin is also caused by sun damage. Gerry has loose skin on his face, as well. It’s a natural part of the aging process when it comes to skin and it happens to some people earlier than others.

@Cathy: Too bad he doesn’t feel the same way about those older women who think he’s attractive.
…………………………………………………………………………

Henry Cavill is hot. He has an edge to him too.

……………………………………………………………………….
@Ana Banana: Women in their 20s aren’t interested in Justin Bieber. Zac Ephron is growing into being a very handsome man. Gerard didn’t look that good when he was that age. He looked a bit dorky or geeky.
……………………………………………………………………….

@Megan @ UCLA: Gerry dates women in their 20s and his 40+ year old fans think that’s great. But they’ll insult Demi Moore, Jennifer Aniston, and other women who date younger men. I don’t understand that.
………………………………………………………………..
@Pat: Aren’t you making an assumption that he’s a nice guy? You don’t know him. No one here does. We only know what we hear.

For Your Info @ 02/04/2011 at 8:05 pm

@curious cat:

Even the very best photos do not do him justice and he is quite genuine in his dealings with his fans. He is kind and considerate. I hope that one day you will be able to see that for yourself.

oldbutnotdead @ 02/04/2011 at 8:06 pm

@curious cat: Very true, Curious cat. It is his personality I like as well as his looks. There are lots of big nice looking men around, in Hollywood and out. (well, not many are big in Hollywood).

He changes his body constantly for parts, it is something I find fascinating. He never looks the same from movie to movie.

When he is in an interview (Conan, Fallon, Leno), he is extroverted, and very amusing. I watched an interview with Javier Bardem. He sat turned away from the audience, and had trouble interacting with them.
GB on the other hand reacts to them, laughs loud, faces them directly, talks to the audience, and not just the interviewer, and tells amusing stories, and makes fun of himself. Sometimes the stories are a little over the top, but this is Gerard. Anyone who has not seen all his interviews (particularly on Craig Ferguson) is not really going to get the attraction. It is the personality investing the body that is a whole package.

Gerard is a high maintenance dude, no question. I believe people over estimate the constant bed hopping, especially as he has gotten older. Most people say he is much better looking in person, and others do not. Attractiveness is extraordinarily subjective, but there has to be a personality attached to the body; people who just look at pictures of him, and have never heard him talk or interact with an audience, will never get it.

I have run into women and girls of all ages who like him (and of course, lots and lots of men who do…). At almost 70, I have seen many, many men, run into all kinds of personalities, seen stars come and go (I mean, come on, I grew up at the same time Brando was on the screen, so people like Shia LeBoeuf look like little girls to me). Gerard is unique, but those who have not seen his many, many interviews (some of the best are in Britain), will never see the other half of him, what makes him unique of all the actors I have seen.

Terrific young man!

@fyi:
What do you consider “older women”? When someone says “older women” I (and usually other people, too) think of women in their 60′s, 70′s and older.

@Cora: lack of sleep, sun, not enough water intake, hard partying with booze and alcohol. Gerry can check all of the things off his list that cause damage to the skin. But the way his skin is laying I agree with manny its unnattural. you don’t lose fat that unevenly. it looks like the girl from American Pie when she had bad lipo.

realitycheck @ 02/04/2011 at 8:28 pm

Those of us that have been fans of GB for many years will remember he always said he had a bit of a gut. That is why he did not want to do the last scene in Phantom of the Opera with out a shirt, so they settled on the unbuttoned shirt. GB was rail thin than.

I doubt GB’s keeps only whores and golddiggers around him. He does like to be flattered and is very adept at getting it. But, I’m sure he’s has old, true friends like the rest of us.

He interacts well with others because he is the baby in his family. If you’ve ever read about family birth order, you might agree with me.

I know his fans like him to be unique and nothing at all like other actors. I do not agree, he is much the same.

And yes, he is a nice man around his fans when it suits him.

oldbutnotdead @ 02/04/2011 at 8:45 pm

@PsychoB:

Gerry gave up drinking about 12 years ago (as did Craig Ferguson), after a very long struggle has stopped smoking. He is very extroverted and likes to be around people, but you will usually see him with water or soda at clubs.

He has sleeping problems, does get too much sun, but he has a great personality, very amusing in all the interviews I have seen, is a good actor, does lots of charity work, well spoken of by all the people who are on sets with him, so try not to make so many things up. Just relax a little. Too much negativity in ones life shortens it!

@oldbutnotdead: You speak of him with kindness. Have you met him? I really like your moniker…but you do not sound old. You have a youthful lilt in your voice. It just shows us that all ages like Gerry and can appreciate him for who he is…not for just because he is an actor. I lke reading your posts.

Question: What would you consider to be the best, or just your favourite, interview (video) with Gerry?
The reason I’m asking is because I’m on YouTube right now searching for Gerry interviews. ;)

@GAY MIKE:
Thanks Mike — and to you fools who didnt realize that Gerards thread was at THE TOP OF THE PAGE FOR AN ENTIRE DAY that’s why we all came here – to see what this fattie was all about – but he is disgusting dont know how and why he was fmaous but yes hot in 300 but now an OINKER please!!! what is his stomach doing???

@Lavender:
Thumbs down for asking about interviews? Hmmm….weird site.

“Older” means 50+ to the world.
I’m 24.
Just plain “OLD” – is 65+ depending on how you look.

Kim Kardash is a Hairy Monkey @ 02/04/2011 at 9:26 pm

@fyi:
Gerry has dated a couple in their 30s they just don’t “look it” at all.

@oldbutnotdead:

thank you for reminding me of the smoking. That alone can make you leathery before your time. Gerry has done pretty much anything and everything to ruin his body but unlike most people he has the means to do something about it. And unfortunately for him he picked this profession over all others to go into, and he will probably have to do things that a normal 40 year old wouldn’t bother to do to stay fit. I personally think a belly is best on a man without the six pack just decently flat. But Gerry isn’t the average man on the street who would get a pass on those uneven abs. He is a man who makes millions in films where he insists on taking his clothes off. And besides his uber fans their isn’t too many women who would say that his body is perfect and go see a movie based on his looks as of late.

Hubba Hubba!!!! Damn wouldn’t you love to his partner on that vacation:)

@Vegas:
I agree. I think I’d be scared of a bloke that looked like he did in 300 (plus it’s not too much fun cuddling something that feels like stone). He looks far better now. :D

@Cora:

Northern European skin is more vulnerable of course. Reputedly, in the course of human evolution, the closer people lived to the Equator, the more melanin (dark coloring) they developed to withstand the rays. The farther away from the Equator, the paler the skin to absorb MORE of the sun’s rays and Vitaman D. Put us Palies in the tropics and we have trouble.

curious cat @ 02/04/2011 at 11:57 pm

@For Your Info:

Sorry, I never met the guy and I dont base my opinions on rumors. As I said, if and when I ever meet this guy, my instincts will take over.

I missed a lot of junk tonight.

Just my take. G is not hairy. Ever watched any of those shows with the swamp, axe men etc.?

G still has a bit of tummy fat. But the abs are back and he’s doing it the right way. Exercise and dieting. IMO, he’s beautiful.

Gorgeous men in the office? Where do you live? I sure don’t live that experience here in PA. Do you work in a gym? But then, I’ve been there at the Y. Soon they get stubble growing on their arms etc. yuk.

Anyone here really tried to lose weight? Skin snaps back into place? That’s a hoot. That’s my favorite. Oh, yes. Lose 25 pounds and your skin just snaps back and looks just gorgeous.

I’m beginning to remember why this place bugs me.

Do you think he’ll go to Berlin? Why or why not?

Me? I don’t think so. I think he’ll lay low on this. He will let the kudos come with not anything from his people.

curious cat @ 02/05/2011 at 12:40 am

@oldbutnotdead:

I like you and your take on things. You seem wise. Yes, the very young see with young eyes.. Your perspective changes. Why any girl gets grossed out about male body hair or facial hair or neck hair I don’t know. It’s natural.
Age matters. Years ago, in the 1980s, there was an Australian movie called “Rebel.” It starred American movie actor Matt Dillon as a U.S. soldier in Australia in WWII. He was incensed about being called a Yank because he was a southerner and to American southerners, the Yanks were northerners in the American Civil War. Southerners were rebels. Semantics. He deserts the Army and holes up with Aussie singer Debbie Byrne. They fall in love. I don’t even recall how the story ends. Maybe you can rent the DVD somewhere.
Here’s the thing. I don’t know the ages of the stars at that time but if I had to take a wild stab, I’d say Dillon seemed about 21 and Byrne maybe 37. She was very hot! Wow, could she sing and dance. Her character was a nightclub performer and the film’s main promo was a clip of her singing as she sank to the floor.
I commented to my young stepdaughter that I had trouble buying the story because I couldn’t understand how that sophisticated woman would fall for that shallow boy.
She said,” Uh uh I can’t understand how such a hot guy could want that old lady!”
Perspective.

curious cat @ 02/05/2011 at 12:49 am

@PsychoB:
You got thumbs down so I had to comment that I agree.

You all are knit picking! Fat, skinny, lumpy, bumpy, boozy, disease ridden, manho. It’s a wonder the man can even walk with the weight of the world you put on his shoulders. Let’s see you all put your rack out there on public display and see what gorgeous specimens you are. Nobody is perfect. Not even all the actors and supermodels in the world can pull that off, especially without all the make-up. sheesh! He’s not everyone’s cup of tea. I think we get that. Love him or hate him, let him be. He’s on his own time and he sure isn’t asking any of us for a critique of his body. But, I’m sure that won’t stop any of you from having fun picking him apart as usual. After you get tired of that, you can go back to picking each other apart. Love this place!

oh thank you , finally someone tells these b!tches to stop picking this guy apart. they all live in glass houses, are gorgeous, skinny, taunt and hold phd’s…….in cattiness that is!

fuuck no wonder they are all here on a Friday night, what guy would want to be with any of them.

my opinion here @ 02/05/2011 at 1:21 am

One explanation for the nasties is female sexual frustration particularly during certain time of the month. They can’t help it. It’s the hormonal and biological. By picking Gerry apart it somehow releases some of the tension they experience. That walking sex of a man they can’t lay their hands on sure is killing them.

@rosie: I think Gerry will go to Berlin. It’s going to be a red carpet gala event. This is the world premiere of the film. I’m sure Ralph wants as many of the cast there as possible. If Gerry goes it will add to the press coverage and help the film.

if we pick on Hitler, does that mean we secretly love him or are sexually frustrated or fat or some other absurd notion.
Gerry gets what he gets bc he’s a celeb not a serious actor. He wanted to be famous and a sex symbol. He is judged accordingly.

curious cat @ 02/05/2011 at 2:30 am

Yep, here we go, carmine and my opinion here.

Sooner or later it comes down to how posters are picking on poor Gerry because other posters (not you of course) are old, fat, frustrated women who can’t get a man, have no life and should let him live his life, he’s not hurting anyone, we’re just jealous old hags, blah de blah de blah. Guess what. This man CHOSE to do whatever it took to become a big movie star. He made himself a public figure and gets what goes with the fame and the money. He knew that ahead of time.

I disagree with what some people say here but I defend their right to their opinion.

Nobody ASKED for pictures of him in Hawaii. As discussed earlier, people in Hawaii, including the press, didn’t know about his visit or give a rat’s a** about it when told. Obviously someone keen on promoting him hired a fotog or fotogs to feed pix to sites like JJ to keep Gerry’s image before the public. Instead of him having a quiet vacation out of the public eye as the trip would otherwise have suggested. So try sell me the Brooklyn Bridge next, huh?.
Jerry probably knows the mixed aphorism, you’ve buttered your bread, now lie in it.
You who ask what others are doing here on a Friday night should first answer the question, what are YOU doing here on a Friday night?

oldbutnotdead @ 02/05/2011 at 2:31 am

@Lavender: Any of his Craig Ferguson interviews. His April 2005 interview with Leno, his March 2007 interview with Leno and Queen Latifah. His March 2010 interview with Ellen, and the 2009 interview with Bonnie Hunt. Especially wearing the funny apron, and eating a deep fried Mars bar, which eventually made him sick, since he was on a cleanse! He has been on Conan in 2007 and 2009, and Fallon in 2009, and on Saturday Night Live 2009. 2009 interviews in England with Jonathan Ross, and another one with in 2009 with Paul O’Grady. Some are on youtube. He has a funny one, A Dracula outtake, where he was strapped to a board in water, and then snapped up out of the water; that one is on youtube somewhere.

There is some amusing stuff on You Tube from his early days on British TV as well. I think it is Lucy Sullivan isGetting Married, he plays the cad, Gus. He has another early one where he plays really annoying rock star. He is an entertaining guy.

oldbutnotdead @ 02/05/2011 at 2:44 am

@ragtime:

Gerry has been acting in film since about 1997, including several series on British tv; he acted on the stage in London and Edinburgh before that and was in law school before that.

He was in a very well received mini series called The Jury on British tv, about the jurors on a murder trial, which was pretty good. He did Dear Frankie, which is a wonderful indie film, and demonstrates his acting ability; One More Kiss is pretty good as well, I think it is a Scottish film about a dying ex girl friend. It was his agent in Hollywood who dragged him over here and got him into Dracula, then Attilla, then Phantom, etc, for the money. He worked hard on every role, indie or Hollywood, success or failure, regardless of the success of the film. Typical Gerry.

I suspect you really know very little about him.

I also suspect anonymous put downs give commenters some strange satisfaction. Fascinating phenomenon, and it is found on most sites, and not just GB’s. They really get ugly over at George Clooney’s sites!

oldbutnotdead @ 02/05/2011 at 2:46 am

@curious cat:

and we can never make the other person see our point of view either; age differences just render us mute and deaf! Lol…I like Australian films, I will look for that one.

For those requesting entertaining Gerry videos these are oldies, but goodies. JJ won’t let me post the links, but go to Youtube Gerard Butler and the 2 titles for the search bar are

@lolita:

Thank you Lolita, I appreciated it, and it made me smile. I do a lot of computer research for classes (I retired as an attorney, then went back to school!), and I do presentations for a large senior center on Archaeology (based on a Masters I got in 2008, after retirement), so I do what I call Gerrying as a break from all the research. I have a friend who is a professor who also likes him, but does not do as much Gerrying as I do.

I find him entertaining. He is also vulgar and full of life; the F word usually bothers me, but somehow it just makes me laugh when he says it. If you do not mind Scottish freedom of speech, you may find The Ugly Truth Gag reel amusing.

You can also find him on Youtube on the Ellen show in 2005 and 2010. Too bad he has lost so much of his accent and Scottish attitude!

oldbutnotdead @ 02/05/2011 at 3:13 am

@lily:

He talked about it on Conan in 2007 and March 2007 on Leno. Queen Latifah advised him he should never have had to shave by himself.. Conan was pretty funny, as Gerry said he had to shave his groin as well. Conan was horrified in an amusing way.

@oldbutnotdead:

I really like your posst, Oldbutnotdead

He is vulgar and full of life is so true. I had the pleasure of being at the second screening of LAC i Glasgow and Gerry came to join us for a while and was very funny. A woman asked him if he was a real scotsmann, Gerry said I’l show you later and a bit later he lifted up his kilt…FUNNY. He is really nice to his fans, and I am a fan but that does not mean I agree with everything he does…he is after all just human. I still think he is very Scottish, maybe not his accent. I have always said that the further north you get in the UK the further south the sence of humour goes and that is very true with Gerry. I like him just as he is…good and bad.

Wow Gerard still looks like a slappy flab pig! Nothing’s changed here!

I’m 27 and I think he’s very attractive. Not every “younger” woman cares only about appearance (fortunately).

Most of my friends don’t look as good as him and they’re in their 20s!
I’m starting to think I should move somewhere else =D

Anyway, I truly believe that perfection is overrated.

I have 3 nieces 20, 24, 26, who love Gerry!!! They are always asking me about him. Their favorite movies with Gerry are PSILY, TUT, and LAC.

@angelsrock:
My girlfriends love him too!
My favourite movies are Rocknrolla and Dear Frankie!!

I also don’t understand the idea “women in their 20s think body hair is gross”…that’s so silly. You can’t generalize, not all of us are the same.
I, myself, am more grossed out by shaved men.

P.S. Gerry isn’t heiry, at least by my european standards. I’ve seen worse on italian beaches…

@oldbutnotdead: Thank you for responding. I enjoy your posts because they are interesting and informative. You have lived an interesting life also.

You can buy “Rebel” on DVD. Here’s a link. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rebel-DVD-Matt-Dillon/dp/B0007YKL58

This is not necessarily the best source but it had an interesting picture. I could not find a clip of that performance in “Rebel.” To my surprise she would have been 27 or 28 when that movie was made in 1985, not 37. She’s in her mid 50s. She was big in the 1970s but her career was derailed in the 80s because of heroin addiction, and revived with her appearance in “Rebel.” Not an especially good film, imo, not worth spending a lot on the DVD but there have been a number of Aussie films that featured an American lead to try and get the U.S. audience. And I do remember that musical number in a skimpy costume where she wiggled slowly to the floor a la Beyonce while belting a rousing song.

Semi, I’d tried to post in regards to your video finds but I guess it got swallowed up in cyberspace. The first one made me LOL because I can see him doing that dance. The second one was special because you can hear his voice in it. Thank you for the links…as always nice find and I see the second video is up to date with the new pics of him.♥

WO has found a story about Ralph and Gerry and the movie. It is a bit lengthy but it is very promising about the movie and it gives a great review about Gerry and his acting ability. The movie is starting to great a good buzz about it and they are starting to compare it to The Kings Speech as a very good movie to see. Also they compliment Gerry for his talent. Finally some good news on his career choices.

typing to fast…meant to say create a good buzz for the movie.

Maybe Byrne just SEEMED older because of the drug addiction. This is old stuff I’d forgotten about. I was living in Sydney in 1985 and saw the film there.
Your background is indeed interesting! A retired lawyer and now a master’s in archeology, is it?
It’s really nice to find intelligent people on these sites.
But may I say something? Some sites have an option whereby you can send a message privately to someone while still maintaining anonymity. JJ doesn’t seem to. Or I would do it. So I will speak frankly.

I suggest you not reveal too much about yourself personally here. Not for legal reasons which you know better than I but just for sanity. This is not a friendship forum.
I have seen professional people on JJ–specifically a lawyer, a psychologist , a nurse and a European journalist–weigh in with interesting discussions and get ripped to shreds by crude, ignorant posters who think anyone who claims serious credentials is a fraud and a fake.
To them, we are all fat old lonely hags who can’t get a man and probably live in some little hovel making love to Marek dolls.
That was put politely because JJ monitors….
People have been devastated by attacks here and don’t come back.
The European journalist in Paris who seemed authentic to me was hounded by taunts like, “You probably live over a chinese restaurant in Detroit. You like flied lice?”
I’m a journalist. I’ve been told straight out on this board that “this is a gossip board, we aren’t interested in journalistic facts.”
People post lewd comments about what GB likes in bed, as if they knew. Their fantasies I think.

I don;t come here often any more. Like you, I do a lot of internet research and you get the chaff with the wheat.

Oh, really?

So after days of coping with two feet of snow, sub-zero temps and a serious long-term power failure, I finally got back online and found these pics. I do enjoy seeing beach pics in winter – even if they’re not mine.
.
Butler looks positively great. He looks healthy and fit, and he’s obviously having a great time in Hawaii. Who wouldn’t? It’s a glorious place – full of kind, friendly people and healthy activities like hiking and surfing. Like many Northerners he craves sunlight and warmth in the winter. He’s incredibly fortunate that he can just pick up and go where he can find it.

Have a great weekend, JJrs.

@you should know…: Unbiased or not…it is out there and it gives good reviews. Let’s hope it catches on and people will be interested. So far with the Weinstein’s interested it shows a pssible good chance of being seen in the US.

@fyiHis assistant is blonde and one of his Evil Twins partners is blonde. Just saying.

@stella: Thanks for posting the link.

@mymymy: Thanks for that link. What a great video.

gossiphound @ 02/05/2011 at 12:45 pm

@Cora: Gerry was likely cast by Ralph not just for his acting chops because Ralph would never compromise his vision solely for PR but because Gerry was the name that clinched the financing and Gerry brings additional buzz that any indy film but esp one based on Shakespeare needs and Gerry is probably one of the hardest working actors when it comes to promoting any film he is in, he could even sell the Bounty Hunter AND indeed why would Gerry miss out on getting to sell something that he won’t be embarrassed to sell, and in fact could mark the turning point of his career unless the director doesn’t want his limelight stolen but from an article I recent read about the director, he has apparently matured on that front or he wouldn’t have cast Gerry in the first place.

oldbutnotdead @ 02/05/2011 at 12:50 pm

@curious cat: I really appreciate your warning about the unfortunates on these sites. I have a very, very thick hide, however…

Once one has been screamed at by judges and opposing counsel (and screamed back at opposing counsel) anyone else seems almost childlike! What they think of me or my credentials really means nothing to me in my daily life.

I see some sad, vicious people on some of these sites, and some who are truly base; I actually feel sorry for them usually. Life is short and that bitterness and baseness actually steals some of one’s few days and leaves them in ashes.

oldbutnotdead @ 02/05/2011 at 12:55 pm

@curious cat:

I just re-read your post and noticed your comment about making love to Marek dolls? Now that made me laugh! I just saw that unfortunate movie, Timeline, and Gerry is the only reason to see it.

I am usually not on the site this much, I am just avoiding an essay that is due Monday in Human Geography.

Best of luck to all of you. For Gerry fans, hope you find some of his interview videos on Youtube. He is a funny kid.

oldbutnotdead @ 02/05/2011 at 1:00 pm

@lolita: Thanks Lolita! Very kind. After 20 years as Workers Compensation litigation attorney in California, 1500 depositions where people look me in the eye and flat out lie to me, and many meltdowns between myself and opposing counsel, not much hurts my feelings. I may get disinterested if I get busy, but otherwise, anonymous postings don’t really bother me; I simply feel sympathy because such people are often angry and very hurt.

See you all at the next GB photos on JJ!

@oldbutnotdead: OBND, it is so funny to hear him called a kid. He is a character. Good luck on your essay.

angelsrock @ 02/05/2011 at 1:40 pm

@mila:

I forgot all about RocknRolla; they loved it and turned it on to all of their friends. They had never heard of it and wondered why it hadn’t been widely released.

@angelsrock:
I wonder the same thing.
It’s a great movie, super funny…I never get tired of watching it again! I love the soundtrack!!

thirtysomething @ 02/05/2011 at 3:24 pm

@curious cat: Sorry, perhaps I shouldn’t have singled you out like that! Speaking of snarky, does calling me or anyone a Gerard worshipper qualify? Just because I consider G my idea of male perfection and spend my free time on boards like this doesn’t mean I have a shrine at home. And when I say perfection, I don’t mean he’s perfect, more like he’s my type of man. Never had a thing for Gus or Archie types and Leonidas was too much for my taste as I’m not into washboard abs or bodybuilder types. And I’m not telling anyone how they should feel, I was just saying how I felt and expressing my surprise at people still not liking him after all the effort he’s obviously put into looking like that. I hope this settles it.

@you should know…:

“@stella: The blog lolita mentioned is a fan who posts on GBGALS. It will be interesting to see what the real press has to say – not just the fan reviewers. I mean no disrespect to any, but the source here is not unbiased.”

No I am not ‘unbiased’, and did not claim to be. I am a fan of Gerard Butler and the title of my blog is “JMHO” (Just My Humble Opinion) and I write about film and film related topics. I am beyond flattered to have been noticed, let alone discussed in this way.

But you seem to know me, “Just so you know…” might I ask who YOU are?

Also Gossiphound, I agree with the points you made re: G’s commercial appeal. I know that was one of many factors that led to his being cast as well as the financing of the film itself. (I tend to agree with a lot of what you have to say ;) )

weetiger3 @ 02/05/2011 at 4:58 pm

@weetiger3:

I meant “you should know” not “Just so you know”. Edit button please JJ!

Let’s spin the wheel and see where Gerry REALLY is right now.

Yep…..He’s back in L.A.

@gossiphound:

I love to read your posts, Gossiphound, and find myself in agreement with most. You haven’t been here much lately. I hope you will continue to post.

@ Red O, miss you and your posts. Hope all is well♥

Apollonia @ 02/05/2011 at 5:49 pm

Someone on the other thread mentioned that Gerry has nice thighs. I agree!!

:D

He reportedly hit on her last summer in an LA bar when he was back on the west coast after his sweep through Europe after Coriolanus.

@oldbutnotdead:
Thank you so much! I will definitely search for those on YouTube. :)

@oooophs:
The opposite? Nope, I don’t think so. I heard/ read the same as Nuts. It was on Twitter too from someone who was at the same place.
Why wouldn’t he be interested in her? She’s young and pretty cute if you ask me.

@Lavender: I don’t like her looks at all. Not my type. LOL.

Interesting @ 02/05/2011 at 7:15 pm

@Nuts:
What did you hear regarding him hitting on her in a bar in LA last summer? Somehow, I don’t seem to remember the incident.

@Lavender:
I agree. I think Lauren is gorgeous. She looks older than her age (24) but she’s pretty and I like her hair styles, Lol. :)

The Realist @ 02/05/2011 at 7:43 pm

LAUREN IS UGLY sorry and not Gerry;s type.
She is pathetic liar like Kardashian. Both got the shaft (meaning the eff off now lie to save face).
Gerard is not the clown you people think he is. He is a FLIRT. So????
If nothing went down – meaning no deal was it never happened.
Moving on.

@Nuts: I remember the story as him hitting on the other blond from Laguna Beach

curious cat @ 02/05/2011 at 7:49 pm

@oldbutnotdead:

I am glad you are thick-skinned! And I laughed, seeing your point. A courtroom is such an adversarial situation. I’ve covered a few trials over the years, and think I’d be stressed out if I were actually in the fray myself instead of observing!

I suppose I am fairly thick-skinned myself. Journalists get screamed at too and sometimes it’s not a bad thing. I got some of my best stories because a reader would get mad, call me up and say, “I read your piece and you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about!!” A colleague once asked why I didn’t just hang up, but sometimes that’s how you learn more information you didn’t know and get a better sory.
Sometimes you have to calm people down and deflect their anger first. before you can have a reasonable exchange.

When I said what I did about not revealing too much personal info I didn’t know how much of veteran poster you might be, since I haven’t encountered you before. And I just think it’s wise to be cautious.

Not long after I started posting on these gossip boards, under a different moniker, I was attacked so viciously I was badly shaken up. I wrote a cutting reply and got an even more vicious attack from the same poster. Then I decided, why am I wasting time and energy getting into a fight with some apparently unstable person I don’t even know. They don’t know you and they make crazy accusations.

It was unnerving the first time. I stopped posting for awhile and then resumed under the “curious cat” moniker, which I have kept by the way. I don’t assume socks. Most people here may not know who I am in RL but they know I am a journo, that I am partial to factual info and that when they see the moniker curious cat they know who it is and what to expect. And they won’t see me here posting under another name.

Even anonymously I try to be responsible about what I say in print and not say things I’d be ashamed to see under my real name.

I do research on different topics and usually have cordial exchanges with people from around the U.S. and other parts of the world, who provide information I’m seeking or are happy when I provide some information for them. The emotion that some people spew on these threads was an eye-opener to me, and I can understand why people would stop posting. It’s not just JJ or GB threads either.

As you know there have been stories lately on teen-agers committing suicide because of attacks on the internet. It’s been pointed out that teens are at a very vulnerable age, but the anonymity of the Net has triggered incivility and cruelty that’s beyond belief sometimes.

curious cat @ 02/05/2011 at 7:55 pm

@obnd

btw, Matt Dillon was 21 when he made “Rebel.” So I was right about one of them! Obviously there wasn’t that big an age different between them. Maybe it was just good acting that allowed them to convey a relationship between a young frightened soldier and an older, world-weary singing star.

@So Swedish:
Thanks for the links!

I remember the bit of gossip was about Kristin Cavallari. Which brings me to something I have been thinking for awhile, G seems to prefer the brown eyed girls. Maybe that’s his type. Okay ready for the screaming from everyone who thinks they are G’s type.

Apollonia @ 02/05/2011 at 8:15 pm

@The Realist: That blonde Serbian girl (can’t remember her name) wasn’t exactly what we consider to be Gerard’s type either.

Well, as long as it wasn’t hideous Audrina “Ceiling Eyes” Patridge it’s OK. Talk about ugly! Both Kristin and Lauren are pretty IMHO.

@Apollonia:
.
Martina was an easy lay and available. Doesn’t have to be a type for a one night rub and tug.

curious cat @ 02/05/2011 at 8:45 pm

@thirtysomething:

I guess we all get touchy at times. Saying some of us must be surrounded by so much male beauty if we think GB is average kind of pushed my trigger. It wasn’t even what I said. But I went through all that.

There is so much on these threads that is endlessly repetitive over the last 3 or 4 years. And I have my pet peeves over which I get more peevish when I am tired or cranky. Aimless discussions of what women he has dated or slept with or might be dating for sleeping with, or what type he likes. Whether he’s gay. That keeps coming up. Posters who tell other posters to “get a life” because they are posting here when the critic is doing the same. Gushers who come on line just to say He’s so hot! or I wanna do him or He’s the most gorgeous man who ever lived! and on the flip side declaimers who come on to say he’s a douchebag and other names. IMO, not contributing anything new. And maybe I don’t either. But I appreciate it when someone offers insights, info, links (Thanks, Stella, for the latest on Coriolanus) on his latest films, upcoming projects, interviews he’s done. If Coriolanus is a real winner I’ll be happy for him. I’ll say it’s about time, dude. We went through LAC, Gamer, Bounty Hunter, TUT. 30-S, I hope you’re having a great weekend!

@Interesting:

Just some tweets and FBs by some folks who either observed it or were told about it by friends who saw it. They posts were by a younger crowd who found it funny/weird/gross that someone his age was hitting on someone her age. I think we were trying to figure out if that bar was a regular haunt of his or a new “watering hole.”

Frankly, he was just coming off his European tour of beauties at point it was difficult to keep track of it all. I think it was before the hugging Lindsey Lohan at the pool party.

Apollonia @ 02/05/2011 at 8:50 pm

@Manny:
Exactly. And I doubt he wanted anything serious with Lauren Conrad either. He probably thought she was cute and she has a ******, LOL.
I remember when some interviewer asked Gerard what he was looking for in a woman and he answered “A ******”. I know he was joking but something tells me that a lot of the time that is the only thing he’s looking for. Everyone has sexual needs but I think GB borders on being a sex addict. He even said that he is the happiest when he’s having sex. He seems to be on a sexual hunt constantly.

Apollonia @ 02/05/2011 at 8:55 pm

What the heck? V/agina got bleeped? It’s an accepted medical word for god’s sake! :(

curious cat @ 02/05/2011 at 8:58 pm

@For Your Info:

I never did reply and I like to reply when someone directs a comment at me. Not sure you understood. As a journalist, I don’t base my opinons of people on rumour and gossip. That is exactly why I hold off on opinions and try not to make judgments. I will comment on what I see GB do and what I hear him say, and on any information that seems relatively official. A lot of the gossip just rolls off.

IF I were to meet him in person, I suspect I might have a gut reaction about what kind of person he is. Maybe not. But I am not suffering in confusion over this. I am just sayin’ I don’t know the man. He seems to be a complex human being, as most of us are, and since he seems to go to some pains to keep us unenlightened, if we’re honest we have to shrug and say I don’t know him.

If you actually KNOW him, bully for you.

Apollonia @ 02/05/2011 at 9:00 pm

I bet ***** doesn’t get bleeped. :(

Apollonia @ 02/05/2011 at 9:04 pm

Oops, it did. Okay, never mind me. Carry on. LOL :)

Green Eyes @ 02/05/2011 at 11:38 pm

I doubt he “meant” to hit on Hills chick. She was there, so he flirted.
Like Kelly Bensimon. She was there so he flirted. I doubt he is interested in some boring looking average chick like that Calamari chick *shudder**
I agree with The Realist…I am a HUGE FLIRT but I would not mess with 98% of the guys I ‘flirt’ with. I do it mostly to get men to do whatever I say LOL
PLUS the way GB interacts is always “flirty”…that again does not mean he wants some. I AM SURE that if he reallly wanted one of those boring run of the mill hooez he could get it pleaseeee.
I am buying brown contacts bc he said he’s a sucker for dark eyes.

Laurie Fan @ 02/06/2011 at 12:06 am

Audrina Patridge looks “slow” inbred and country.
Yuck I am a fmr Hills watcher and fan and Gerard fan even though he is OLD
She is trashy look at her drunk mother talking sh* to TMZ.

Carry on

@Green Eyes @ 02/06/2011 at 12:12 am

@Green Eyes: You’re probably right about the Gerry being a sucker for dark eyes, but I’m just wondering, where or when did he say that? Do you have a link?

COMFORT FOOD @ 02/06/2011 at 12:12 am

BOOGAR & CHEESE SPREAD ON TOAST POINTS

I actually am staying home tonight. I watched Phantom of the Opera. Haven’t seen it in ages. I ff a lot to watch Gerry and his thighs in those costumes. LOL. The arm chandeliers are a bit over the top, but the look of the film is magnificent.

Jay won for best voice in an animated film at the Annies. HTTYD is picking up a lot of awards tonight. Maybe will offset Toy Story 4,000 blaah at the Oscars.

He’s back in LA? I just have this sneaking suspicion something big is coming in an announcement from either Butler or Evil Twins. He looks too smug lately. And all that working out and starving wasn’t just a vanity project. Knowing him, he doesn’t just get the abs back for nada and feeling good about himself. Butler’s abs spell money on the way.

@lucy: Right on. Butler can look good without the abs. Something is up. Slide can be OK with him just OK. He’s an EX hockey player so no one expects perfection. So he’s gone nutty training? We will wait and see.

@Vegas: How serendipity (sp) is that. I watched Phanton tonight. Off work. Yes. He tried his best, but the film was not good. Somewhere it went bad. NOT Gerry’s fault. It was a bad script IMO.

@Vegas: I got thumbs down for watching Phantom or for reporting on the Annies? I usually try to ignore that stuff, but it’s got me perlexed. Should no fans post here? I’m not getting it. This may be my exit strategy. I love gerry, but I’m not feeling what this place is about anymore. Lots of other places to discuss G. Someone doesn’t like where I’m from? What I said in the past? Talk to yourselves.

OK. This is funny. NOT. I said about the same thing under my usual name and under a sock. Got thumbs down as Old Mia, thumbs up as the sock. Maybe OLD is the downer. It just started because a bunch of Mias came on at the same time. I said I was Old Mia, because I was the first. What ever. Not funny anymore and I get Vegas’s frustration. She may or may not mean it, but I’m gone. The fan sites may be sappy, but at least you know what you are getting from whomever.

Thanks to all those posting links on the Butlers new movies! The more I read the more excited I get lol looks like its going to be a good year in Butlerdom

wait a minute @ 02/06/2011 at 1:52 am

Who said no one here cared that Gerard was here? So not true. I live in Honolulu and there were lots of people out on the beach just trying to get a picture of him. We heard lots of stuff and people went looking.

My farewell moment. YES. HTTYD is big at the Annies. Love Gerry. Love his movies.

Interesting @ 02/06/2011 at 2:46 am

@Vegas:
I hate to lose you.
why are you letting total strangers who have nothing else better to do with their time than to provoke others, or give them thumbs down, upset you? It’s silly. You’re letting them bully you and drive you away from here.
Just ignore the thumbs. They are giving them to all of us.
Haven’t you noticed already that there are lots of nut cases around here?
The idiot with the boogers and the other one with the insults, and so on and so forth.
It’s not like such people’s opinions matter at all.
Snap out of it LOL
@Old Mia:
Unfortunately, the reason you got thumbs down as Old Mia is because you have peeps here who don’t like you, so anything you say, even if it’s intelligent, you’ll get thumbs down. It’s unfortunate that honest people don’t evaluate each post on its content and merit, instead of rating you depending on whether they like you or not. Not much honesty at JJ, but try to ignore it and not have your feelings hurt. After all, it’s an anonymous place so it’s not like anyone you know hates you. Try to put things into context; it might help you deal with the criticism better.
.
In any case, I hope you and Vegas don’t leave.

You’re both acting like a couple of babies. “My farewell moment.” WTF? I’m sure you’re hoping people will cry for you to come back. It’s what you two drama queens want. What a waste of time. You’ll both be back under some lame excuse or as a sock so your melodrama is just making you look pitiful. If you’re wondering why people don’t like you, tonight is a great example why.

Oh who cares about thumbs! There will always be people who agree or disagree with you, both in real life and on message boards.

Congratulations HTTYD! Looks like it was a clean sweep.

Sorry about Vegas and Mia. Quite a few of the posters who were regulars when I first found this place are missing in action anymore. RedO, glinda, Louisville, JewelryMaker, spanky, LauraS and others who had interesting things to say about Gerry. And some others who used to post on a regular basis only seem to make flybyes every now and then. And Sukar, well that’s understandable right now. Hope she comes back when things settle down.

Sorry to hear you’re leaving @vegas and @old mia..you have posted some interesting posts in the past …unlike bogie’s and cheese…or whatever’s on the menu tonight…and posters of the same mind set….but anyway what do i know ..i’m just a loon.LOL.

Good news about HTTYD at the Annie’s last night…10 awards including…Best Animation…wonder if they follow last years Best Animation winner-”up” and go on to win Best Animation at the Oscar’s..(hope so).

Have a great day all.

Can anybody see his ****-hair in the second picture or is it just me? :D

@Fritz is flying solo: Yes, posters come and go, but even tho the place is anonymous, it’s always more fun to see what the familiar “faces” have to say about something. IMO. And I think that’s why many people come to a gossip site – it’s supposed to be fun. Getting a bunch of thumbs down when you didn’t even say anything controversial isn’t a good time. I can understand the sentiment but I’m stubborn enough not to let it bug me.

gossiphound @ 02/06/2011 at 12:35 pm

Gerry working out and looking good is no surprise, first of all he was already in pretty good shape by the time he did Machine Gun Preacher, look at thin he was at the Bounty Hunter premiere and in superb shape for Coriolanus. Now he is starting a movie in like less than 8 weeks where is a former professional soccer player who gets all the soccer moms hot and bothered? I mean come on, all the soccer moms and others drool over Ronaldo and Beckham so pretty high standard to even try to emulate.

Gerry circa TUT or TBH would not be convincing to most of the moviegoers as the hot former professional soccer player, I am afraid.

Afterburn of which we’ve gotten no confirmation on as a done deal, though it is listed on Gerry’s IMDB page as In Development will also require a buff Gerry.

So you know while you are in great shape, let’s grab a few more roles. In fact being somewhat out of shape and/or not quite looking his best last few years may have cost him some roles he may have really wanted. Yes Gerry off game still looks better than most men on game but as a famous actress just said, oh I can’t remember who said it, HD TV has been the worst thing for actors and actresses because it hides nothing, LOL.

On the other hand I think the characters of Mike Chadway and Milo should have been slobs, wouldn’t have been convincing as totally hot studs. I always find the men that are the worst chauvinists and/or shoot off their mouths about expecting women to look like Playmates 24-7, esp after a certain age, are the guys with the beer guts and not so hot themselves, LOL.

Maybe he’s smug because he scored a casting coup on the ex-wife for PTF. I so would love Sofia Vegara though I realize it is highly unlikely. I don’t think she has a high enough box office recognition, maybe.

Just rewatching that video from Jay Leno show and she mentions taking her son to Vegas, she said better that she be with him his first time, where she can supervise, and Gerry makes some comment about gambling and hookers, when she says this was your problem you needed more supervision growing up, or words to that effect, oh I was howling again. Truer words never spoken.

Or maybe he’s smug because he’s hearing the good news about Coriolanus and MGP and realizes this might be his “annus incrediblis” career wise.

Shall we take bets now on whether or not he goes to Carnvale in Rio now that PTF has pushed back the start date?

@gossiphound: I hope he doesn’t go to Rio. It’s time to stop with the South American partying. LOL. If he goes to Berlin and then does some promo work for Coriolanus, that might prevent a Rio trip too. I hope he’s too busy. (But maybe the urge to strut his great body on another beach will be too much for him.)

@Fritz is flying solo:
.
Another dramatic exit. We are averaging one every couple of weeks now. Sheeeesh… I will never understand why peeps announce they are leaving. Do they want everyone to beg them to stay? That sounds a little desperate. It’s a gossip site. Peeps will never totally agree on anything here… BTW… they will be back. They always come back. Hope to see you soon Vegas. :)
.
@just curious: and @Furious ****
.
It isn’t either of us. Cubie and I don’t sock. Everyone should know by now that whining on here only brings such rewards… I guess there is more than one person that gets annoyed by the dramatic exit ploy.
.
Everyone needs to settle down. Thumbs are thumbs…BFD! If peeps are going to get their feathers ruffled over the thumbs, they shouldn’t post here. There is no rhyme nor reason to how the thumbs are distributed… The point is you shouldn’t care. ;)
.
@gossiphound:
.
Sophia is great. She is outspoken and to the point. She would clean his clock in that movie IMO.
.
Coriolanus seems to be something to watch. I’m sitting on the fence on MGP. I hope he knocks it out of the park but the only reviews have been from fans so I’m waiting for the critics or word of mouth (unbiased) to hit the media. Crossing my fingers…
.
Butler does look nice and the fact that no other photos have come out from Hawaii make me think that they were PR to get the talk going in the media. Remember one year ago was BarbadosGate. The media all over the US was talking about the double standard with Butler as the poster child. I think it was a f*ck you to the press for all of last year’s sh!t. Smart PR move Butler IMO.
.
Happy Sunday JJers!

@stella:
.
It’s not just his body he likes to strut. He likes to get some work out time for Little Gerry too. :)

@KDHT: the two of them are habitual leavers they need people to kiss their butts and tell them to stay so they feel needed. there was no conflict this weekend so they use the thumbs to announce their leaving this weekend. don’t worry they will be back in a day. they will find some reason that they had to come back.

@gossiphound: I agree. The body is work related. Especially because Gerry does not naturally have that kind of a body. Even when he was in his 20s, he was either lanky or a little soft around the middle. I think it was about the time of Attila and Drac that he and/or Allan decided to start molding him into what we see today. (I don’t count 300 in the equation because that was just crazy.) And every now and then, he slips up, gets comfy and a “normal” body emerges.

Just my spin but: The thumbs are a menace. I’m not sure what their purpose is. But my opinion is if they were not there, more people might come on and explain their opposition to what someone has said rather than just clicking on a downer and leaving it open to individual interpretation. Absence of the thumbs might bring more dialog to the board.

gossiphound @ 02/06/2011 at 2:14 pm

Did I miss something but weren’t some of the reviews from people invited to a test screening which means you try for a random sampling of people, no point just inviting fans, and some of the rave reviews was coming from them and the only complaint was some felt the title was misleading, they were expecting a more mindless action film but even some of those who felt the movie was different than expected said the film was still a decent movie and worth seeing? That problem can be solved with the right promotion and trailer anyway, IMO.

In fact I believe one of the guys who works with or for Sam Childers’s MGP TV series/Facebook got to go the screening and raved about it though yes he might be biased or want to make sure their reality show benefits from the good buzz but then again if they didn’t like it would they just say nothing?

I asked some acquaintances in the local media and checked other sources I thought were likely to have been tipped off. Now I am chagrined. Especially because a couple of friends asked me to try to get a picture!

Out of curiosity, can you tell me where he was seen? When? What beach? Any restaurants or nightclub? Did he spend time in Honolulu? I saw the Maui pictures, but couldn’t justify the time (or money) to fly over there on the wild chance I’d spot him if he was even still there.

Perhaps I don’t hang out in the right places! Embarrassing if he was right in my own neigbhorhood and I didn’t know it! :)

But what the heck. I know a woman who decided to skip an aerobics class in Waikiki and sleep in the day Gilad was here and taught it!
Would love to know if you drop in here again as to where Gerry was seen. My friends will probably want to hang me from the nearest lamppost! :)

One more comment. This thread wil soon be replaced I’m sure if isn’t already. Just want to say sorry if I have seemed snarky or heavy-handed lately. I agree these boards should be fun, think we can all say our piece, read what we like, skip what doesn’t interest us, offer and get info, agree to disagree on occasion, but be civil and not attack other posters we don’t know personally.
Have a good week, y’all.

Gerry and entourage at the Roxbury. Who’s the brunette in the front seat?

@gossiphound:

Gossip, I don’t know what happened to my post saying thanks for all this info. Good informative post as always.

@Nuts:
she is definitely with G. did you see her just before she gets into the car at around 0.10? She is a brunette, very tall (almost as tall as he is) and they were walking very close to each other just before they separate to get into the car.
Also, if she were not with him why would she sit next to him in the front seat or hide her face?
But then the strange thing about it is G not being in a hurry to get out of dodge, he lingers a bit asking Ariel something and Ariel joking around and making faces, weird.

@Dona:
.
Since he wasn’t in a hurry to get out there I would say she was with one of the guys. Also, Gerry tends to sit the woman in the front seat with him, check out the video with that Dancing with the Stars guy. He sits Christiano’s wife in the front seat with him. I wouldn’t put much stock in it at this point. Butler didn’t look nervous or upset. He was probably joking with Ariel that the phannies would be googling Miss Brunette. If you notice after they start laughing she kind of hides her face. The joke is on those obsessed with who he is with. He is a lot smarter than any of us give him credit for when it comes to hiding his bed partners IMO.
.
Just saw a commercial for Priest. Sh!t oh dear I wish that Butler had done that movie. Looks scary and exciting. Instead he gave us the Booty Hunter. Sh!t we lost again. :(

Can I just say a little ewwww for the pubes spotters. Come on ladies…

Oops – Christiano sits his wife in the backseat… my bad. :(

@Manny:
that’s right; I saw that video, and usually a man likes to place his wife by his side. I don’t think she was with any of these guys.
still, i wonder, what she really is to him.
just a week ago he was spotted a couple of times in clubs with Leo without a woman while checking out the ladies.
Maybe it’s the girl with him in Hawaii, though she was shorter than this one who is at least as tall as he is. Or, maybe, she is the lunch girl he was seen with 2 weeks ago in LA; she was as tall as this one.
Speculations, speculations, speculations lol

@Manny:
Nothing strange about that. Just women being women, noticing sexy things about a man’s body. You should hear men when they look at pics of women, LOL! “I can see her nipple!” or “That’s definitely a camel toe” and so on. Why shouldn’t girls be allowed to comment on things as well? Just saying. :)

@Dona:
.
Personally I wouldn’t waste any time trying to figure any of them out. Next week it will be another pair of long legs and then another and then another. It is one of the only things he is consistent at, changing women. :)

@Meena:
.
I’m sorry but that sounds like someone trying to model their anatomically correct Marek doll.
.
Just because guys do it, do we? Sorry but I thought this bunch wasn’t so crazy as to trying to identify where his pubes start on his body. I guess that is a line I’m not willing to cross.
.
Carry on with the low rent talk. So becoming to a woman. *snort*

This could be the beginning stages of a relationship and not yet serious. However, it could easily turn out to be another LC, which in G’s life happens more often than not. It’s very hard for him (for many complicated reasons) to hold onto a relationship. So I wouldn’t take this too seriously. It could also turn out that by midweek he will be seen with a new girl LOL.

GB Fan and proud of it ;) @ 02/06/2011 at 6:19 pm

@Dona:
It’s not lunch girl. Being the sad little fan that I am I paused the clip and from the little I could see this girl does not look as pretty as lunch girl. This one seems to have more sharp rat like features, lunch girl had rounder prettier facial features. And I have to say, this girl is so tall she could be mistaken for a guy in drags. A real skyscraper, hehe.

OK, back to lurking ;-)

Or maybe (most likely!)... @ 02/06/2011 at 6:22 pm

@Dona:
….it’s just a s*hag for the night. I mean, it’s Gerard Butler after all.

Fritz – how about a dime for every time someone says “it could be the beginning of a relationship…” Oh Gawd.
.
Watching the beginning of the Super Bowl stuff. That chick with the wide mouth from Gleen just showed her tonsils singing. Boy is this going to be a long night.

Oops Glee. I don’t know her name but that mouth is easy to spot in a crowd. :)

@GB Fan and proud of it ;):
.
Nothing to be ashamed of being a fan. Now if you are part of the “spot the pubes” crew… well…

@GB Fan and proud of it ;):
yep, you’re right she is definitely a 6 footer ++
Why does he like giraffes? Most women are not 6 footers. When he is with average-height girls he looks so much more manly.
Anyway I tried to freeze the video, and from what i could see, the girl is definitely not pretty.
@Or maybe (most likely!)…:
Don’t be so touchy by my comments. I already said that probably by midweek she would be a distant memory. Whatever I said above it’s just speculation like everything else that has been said here before.

Fritz – we could make more money on the “she’s not pretty…”

So Butler has yet to break into the A-List territory huh? I don’t hold out big hopes for his stock rising financially much with the next two piccies. Coriolanus would have to find wide release distribution for that to make a dent in the back-end thing, which probably isn’t written into their contracts and MGP is a wait and see project.

G probably made 7 million for TBH and 1 or 2 mill for HTTYD. But wait , TBH and HTTYD were paid in 2009 am I right? So what he got paid for in year 2010 are MGP and Coriolanus, both of which seem low budget and he probably didn’t get paid much, maybe 3 or 4 mill each.

@Interesting: Being worth 15 million is not making 15 million in 2010. He would have only received his fees for MGP and Coriolanus like ???? Said the rest would have been paid in 09, but I doubt he got 7 for TBH cuz JA got 8. And back end for TBH had to be nonexistent. And I don’t think voice work usually gets backend.

LOL!!!!…I didn’t know Gerry had so many accountants here on JJ…I don’t think any of us really know what Gerry’s income has been for the last two years. Unless Gerry’s accountant has sent the tabloids his tax return I think they are only guessing..♥

I’m not going fishing this morning, but I recall another article about the same time that noted that Gerry’s films have brought in more money than Aniston’s.

Okay these numbers include Tomorrow Never Dies. He was in it for five seconds. That’s like saying blue man number 5 from Avatar is a billion dollar man. Wait a year and than start calling him that so there isn’t a big astericks by the name.

you miss understood what i meant. For 2009 GB was listed as being worth $15 M and it’s still the same. what’s up with that? Hasn’t he made more money since? Unless, he is spending it faster than he’s making it, i would assume his net worth is larger now.
also he is not on the Forbes 100 top-earner celebrites for 2010 but many others that are not that great are. here is the list.
http://www.forbes.com/lists/2010/53/celeb-100-10_The-Celebrity-100.html

His movies make $ except for Gamer and Rocknrolla which is beyond comprehension because that movie, well, rocked. Guy’s script had some of the smartest and funniest stuff in film in a long time. I know the backers or whoever were having trouble. That was especially sad because that movie was just a great ride from start to finish. I also should mention Shattered. It also got lost in a money handlers’ battle. Gerry and Bronson were both great in that film.

OHHH yeah – and I’m suuure YOUR MAN would pass up an opportunity to BONE Heidi (5’11) or Adriana Lima (5’10) or Tyra (5’9.5) becuz theyre too “manly.”
Do you realize how stupid YOU SOUND??? Grow up, take your fat short head out of your a/ss and open your eyes.
YOU ARE NOT A SUPERMODEL – GERARD LIKES MODELS AND YOUUUUU ARE NOTTTT ONE!!!!
Whatever helps you sleep at night.
For the record?? I am 5’7. Not short like a piece of doodoo, but not tall enough to be Aneglina Jolie or Charlize. Do I dog supermodels though?
No – because I am not jealous.

@Dona is a Fat F*kk:
Girls that are very tall IS unattractive. What girl wants to be a skyscraper? If you wear heels you tower over everybody else and are even taller than the guys. Yuck. Very tall girls also look like trannies because they are man tall. I’m medium height and sooo glad for it. You feel feminine and cute and don’t have to wear flats all the time. It’s great.

Judging by your outburst I guess you are skyscraping giraffe. Too bad for you.

wellll, I don’t know if this is the time to post, but I agree with Heidi about Rocknrolla. That film was about the best thing I saw in the last year or so. Hollywood has gone dumbed down. Don’t think. Just blow it up. Or exorcize it. Gag.That dropped really fast. I just read that the total box office is down 25 percent from last year and that figure is just boosted by Avatar. Take that out, and movies are going to h in a hand basket. Maybe Butler is smart in getting into the Pinkerton thing for TV. Sounds better than what the major studios are throwing at us.

@Dona is a Fat F*kk:
OK, so let me guess, you are tall and upset because a poster said that “most women are not 6 feet ++”, which happens to be true, so you lash out on them? WTF is wrong with you? What is this place coming to?

ITAWY. Donna spoke about average-height women as being most attractive, which is somewhere between 5’4″ to 5’7″. She was saying that the girl seen with GB looked very tall, almost as tall as he is. Most women are not that tall, and when they are, unfortunately, they are not feminine.
I’m of average height, but if I had to, I would take short over very tall any day.
I, like many posters here, also can’t figure out why he likes such super tall girls, unless the women he dates privately are prettier than the ones he is seen with publically.

Genetically Superior @ 02/07/2011 at 1:48 am

Tall people (male AND female) are genetically superior.
They make more money on the average and are generally seen as “more attractive” and even SMARTER then their shorter counterparts.
Sorry, the research has been done. If you know how to use a computer you can find it anywhere.

So much misunderstanding and refusal to understand others is going on here, on these threads – it’s unbelievable.

Observation @ 02/07/2011 at 10:18 am

Always try to remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I just wanted to say that the thought that Gerry would only date someone if they met some kind of height requirement tells me what kind of guy you think Gerry is. If a guy finds someone he likes he isn’t going to care what her height is and if he does than he’s not a guy you would want to be around. I am not going to say that being attracted to someone isn’t important because I know it is but height is way down on the list for most men. You guys say I don’t think very highly of Gerry but I would argue that I obviously think he has more to him than those who think he has a check list that all women must meet before dating them.

Another side note critiqueing every women within 5 feet of Gerry says a lot about who you are. Only someone insecure about their height would bother making snide comments about someone elses height.

@Lavender:

The vid didn’t show the woman’s feet, did it? She might be wearing super high heels with high platforms. In those contraptions a 5’8″ woman could look close to GB’s height.

In case anyone is still interested in who this woman is, her name is Rebecca Stanton and she’s an aspiring actress/model, age 22, and she is a friend of Ariel Vroman’s. She did not come to the club with Gerry and Ariel, nor did the other man that was with them. This comes from a friend from LA who was at the Roxbury that night and saw it all, and who is familiar with this woman. She was not there as a date to Ariel, just happened to be there, and left with the three men. Don’t know what went on after they all left, but that’s the scoop.

Canadian Model @ 02/07/2011 at 12:08 pm

@ISRAELI MODEL:
Let me enlighten you, since I feel sorry for you, for spinning your wheels chasing a modeling career and running after Gerard, both to no avail.
I’m a Canadian model and I know Gerard personally, and I very much doubt that you could get Gerard, either with your attitude or your type of look.
You see, I know who you are – it’s a small world. Just because you’re 5 ft 9 inches tall doesn’t mean he will be interested in you.
Were you invited to his birthday bash? No, but I was. Girls like us are a dime a dozen for him.
Take if from someone who knows him personally, he wouldn’t look at you twice, you’re not his type.
What you need is to focus on your career and try to get some professional pictures for your portfolio and some more work. Otherwise, give up modeling all together. It might be something more feasible for you than Gerard dating you because it will never happen.
He usually sizes up a woman within 30 seconds of meeting her, whether he would bed her or not, and I know you’re not going to pass his quick calculations.
It’s quite simple, he usually looks for certain sensations from her, something that reveals a hint of her personality, and if she doesn’t have what he is looking for, it’s just going to end up with some flirting and friendlily chatter. This guy is very gregarious.
It’s not all about the height or her appearance. He’s very carful who he brings into his intimate life because of who he is. Yes he is looking for a type, but that’s only a preference and not etched in stone, but he is definitely looking for a certain personality, that is a must if a woman is coming with him into his life. Your appearance and attitude are not what he is looking for, that’s for sure.

Well, I don’t know who she is but what the heck was she wearing – or not wearing? No one out of first grade should wear anything that short in public except on a beach. Made her look like a hooker whether she is or not.

gossiphound @ 02/07/2011 at 12:57 pm

@Interesting: Heigl produces all her films lately that’s where her money comes from, gets her producer’s cut and her actress cut and she pays herself whatever she feels like…..she quite a few films ahead of Evil Twins and TUT was a huge success worldwide, over $200mill box office worldwide. With all the producers involved in LAC and even Machine Gun Preacher, Gerry’s producer’s cut is not going to be huge and he took huge paycuts to do Coriolanus and MGP. Though I heard he got paid in the millions for Booty Hunter.

@Question: My friend is a very reliable source, she is a very big party girl in LA and frequents most all of the hot spots in the LA and Hollywood area. She knows just about everybody. So her information is most reliable. She has stories about some of the other movie stars, not Gerry, but others that would curl your hair. She sees it all going from one club to another as she does, and Gerry is by far NOT the worst behaved actor we know of, he’s nothing compared to some. She says that actually, he’s one of the nicest actors she has ever met, and he generally just sits with his friends, drinking Coca-Cola or mineral water, talking and listening to the music. She says he’s not boisterous or out of line, and he’s most always with a group of guys. He’ll talk to the women that come up to him, but according to her, he’s just a friendly guy.

@Question:

Maybe ARIEL didn’t want to be seen with her because of other women in his life perhaps seeing them together. Stick her in the front seat with Gerry and put down the visor…

gossiphound @ 02/07/2011 at 1:08 pm

@Nuts: Yes ARIEL was the one that reached out and pulled down the visor not Gerry. Odd huh.

@PsychoB:

Based on what you have been posting here you leave the impression that you don’t possess one single attribute on G’s check list. Cry a river or stick to your boyfriend who may the best you can ever get.

@gossiphound:

Exactly.
She sits up front (with those long legs) and Ariel pulls down the visor, says something to her. She covers her face…and Gerry become Ariel’s “cover”.

And, as someone pointed out, Gerry isn’t in a hurry to pull out nor is he upset by the razzi being there. If he didn’t want to be caught he’d have arranged a separate getaway or had Ariel or the other guy act openly like she was their date.

@stella: I was thinking the same thing. Maybe Gerry will stay away from Berlin and let Ralph rake in the kudos on his own. Then when it gets into theaters, Gerry will do his usual job of selling the film on talk shows etc.

@Nuts:
Yeah, but why would she agree to play by Ariel’s games?
Would she agree to get hidden by him because he doesn’t want his other women to know he is with her?
What kind of women do these men hook up with?
Do these women have any respect for themselves???

sorry about the double post – JJ not working right today

Rebecca Stanton must be still in the aspiring actress stage because I couldn’t find any IMDB credits for her or anything on google.

@Nuts: I tried to look her up as well. The only interesting Rebecca Stanton I found is an assistant professor of Russian at Barnard. She’s beautiful but maybe a bit mature for Gerry (read age appropriate). Maybe G should call her when he gets back to New York. LOL.

I was just reading something kind of interesting at gals about the party for The Kings’ Speech tonight. The movie is distributed by Weinstein. Gerry wants Coriolanus distributed by Weinstein. He is working tonight. Smoozing and buttering up Harvey.

@i heart: Thanks for the recommendations! I will look for those two movies and try reading the Red series. Always, looking for something new and well written. I have not seen the Hornest’s nest as I have not read the third book. Just got back from an out of town assignment and have saved it for a snow day! Like today! I also really loved the series by Tana French. Written in Dublin sort of mystery/thriller/cop. Now that would be a great series for Gman to pick up! the books are sort of connected. Check them out.

I don’t know all that much about the Weinsteins, but I loathe Michael Moore. Now there is a jerk. IMO.

I’m hoping that we get some photos of Gerry from the party tonight.

Gerry is mentioned by Patterson for Michael Bennett character.

He has always had the turtle-shell-looking ab thing going on. Variety is the spice of life; no 2 bodies are the same. I might add that I cannot stand the skinny model look or the Mr. Atlas look. Gerry is somewhere in between, and I like it alot!
I think he looks so good. He is in the best shape he’s been for quite awhile now.

gossiphound @ 02/07/2011 at 7:41 pm

As a long time observer of TIFF from mostly afar – it is covered quite thoroughly by the Canadian print and TV press and they broadcast all the major Press conferences after each major movie screened on the local Cable access channel, almost every movie at TIFF has all the major players on that podium, the director, the key actors and actresses and sometimes the scriptwriter and/or a producer and they all show up to the gala unless schedules just can’t allow someone to be there or I remember one actor got into a fight with the studio and boycotted the Film Festival. That is a lot of press for Ralph to carry by himself and I don’t remember about Berlin, I had looked up the film awards but not the acting ones but Cannes has awards for the best actor and actress and best supporting actor and actress. The more awards the better for the movie and the better it looks for the director of course.

Requiem in Dreams @ 02/07/2011 at 7:42 pm

I have been a fan of his for two years. Anybody knows me is kind of surprised I am a fan of a movie star. I am surprised myself because all my life honestly I was not into being a fan of celebrities. I actually often laughed at those who were star struck. I might like certain stars, some as a personal some for their work but never until two years ago I say POTO on TV by chance did I become a fan of a movie actor. This is so not me but here I am.

No doubt I find him physically attractive. He has an unique face; I like his above average height (a plus in my book) and his brand of humor. But what attracts me the most about him is his love for life and almost childlike fearless spirit. I am lacking in those so I constantly am in awe to see him setting goals in life for himself and achieving them. This is the aspect of him I admire the most and perhaps the main reason I am fan of his. I see in him things I love to have myself, the determination, the fighting competitive spirit and single-mindedness. His fans like him for different reasons but here is mine.

@Requiem in Dreams: You could have taken those words right out of my mouth!

what’s ariel’s dealio? What does he do to keep a paycheck. I did not see the camel movie.except for the gman parts on utube. really ?

@hellotheregb: I wonder about Ariel too. Checked his IMDb site: Seems he’s done some documentary things in Isreal. Nothing much to make a name except riding on Butler’s coattails for a silly film as far as international recognition goes. He’s spoken at a few things, but it all turns into “Gerry.” ‘Tell us about him.” But, Gerry obviously likes him and is a faithful friend.

newish fan @ 02/08/2011 at 12:39 am

Did he already have Attila and Drac in the bag when he did Jewel? Everything says 2000-2001. WHY? Why would the star of the most watched TV special at the time (Attila) make that (camel) BS? Was Ariel someone Allan was representing? Whatever, it obviously led to a friendship that transends stupid films, divorces, GFs, and anything in between. I just hope he knows he’s the talent. The rest are just sucking at the trough.

@newish fan: It must be hard to know who is a real friend and who is just feeding off you,

Whoever told Stupidfans that whatever she says won’t change their minds, I AGREE.

If we believe the reports, the film business is at a low. 25 percent lower than last year, even with Avatar’s figures in. Butler is going elsewhere for his money. Pinkerton is just the tip of the iceburg. Funny about the Patterson interview. The man is everywhere. If you want to see a tough dog in entertainment business look for Gerard Butler. Those who love his looks should forget. He’s going to be the next big behind the scenes person. A loss for us. A win for him.

Inner Circle @ 02/08/2011 at 1:23 am

There’s money to be made everywhere for him. His celebrity status opens up lucrative opportunities for him, be it free trips to the opening of 5 stars international resorts (Dubai, Morrocco), or a night in a club promoting it, or even a trip to Rio for the Carnaval (sponsored by Brahma beer). I have a feeling his latest trip to Uruguay was one of those “free trips”. I also suspect there was a great deal of kissing up to the billionaires to finance his next productions. I agree with the previous posters, Gerard Butler is aiming to become the next “behind the scene” mogul in Hollywood. There’s alot more going on than just being a pretty party boy. I believe Mr. Butler has a good business head.

stupidfans @ 02/08/2011 at 3:29 am

@gabby: It isn’t meant to change their minds. They’re out of their minds. I point to any photo of phannies with Gerry dolls as Exhibit A.

Yet it is fun to annoy them, (they’re so overly dramatic – like they’re double dosing on Premarin) especially when they’re blathering on with their teenage twaddle talk that would make a 13 year old cringe with embarassment and disgust. It nauseates the rest of us who aren’t desperate and don’t like when idiots make women look as ninny-ish as they do.

I agree with Manny, all the talk about tracking his treasure trail is juvenile and sounds desperate. Supposedly one phannie posted his photo in Hawaii with “F8CK ME” or something like that as the caption. These are grown women. It makes me fear for the safety of male letter carriers in their hometowns.

As Manny said, it’s low rent. It ‘s no different than some grease monkey making vulgar comments to a woman walking down the street. It doesn’t make the phannies empowered. It makes them sound weird and base. It merits a response from those of us who don’t wish to be embarassed by other members of our gender.

We won’t even bother to get into how they tear apart every woman he’s seen with. That’s a story for another day.

Now a good example of civil comments goes to angel (who hates me, bless her heart) but responded to my comment today with her opinion, which is pro Gergolo. She didn’t take any desperate cheap shots at me. I wonder how many thumbs down she’ll for that now. She didn’t tell me I couldn’t have my opinion. She didn’t flame me, so I didn’t flame her in response. She made a comment and didn’t make an a$$ of herself or insult the female gender with wingnuttery. The rest of the phannies should try that. They’d get less of a rep for being off their rockers if they did.

All done. Have at the thumbsies, phannies. Each thumbs down is like a bouquet of flowers sent to my door. It won’t scare me off like it has for some of the socks here. :D

Totally OT: “Remember when J-Lo’s booty was considered huge? And then Kim Kardashian’s fat ass came along and literally eclipsed it and half the eastern seaboard.” Found at Hollywood tuna. :-)

@Amy R: and a brilliant photographer as well!
I highly doubt she’s Israeli model. Google ‘Voksan’ and that should give you a good idea who Israeli model is and the “quality” of her work ;)
She’s advertising on a GB thread. How classy o_O

@?!?!

why was Amber Myles Arbucci’s name posted here..if she is not either model? what has she got to do with Gerry…was she the girl in the car?It didn’t look like her.
Thanks in advance.

@Amy R: I think Amber Arbucci, much like Constanze Hohzorn and this Voksan girl, was just trying to get us to look up her name. I don’t think there was any relevance to Gerry. It seems we got spammed by wannabe models last night trying to get some traffic directed to their photos.

@Amy R: I don’t know. I assume someone was name dropping and stirring sh!t. All I know is that no commercial photographer would sabotage their credibility or professionalism by pimping out their business on a GB thread of all places. Especially if they produce work to such a high standard and are the co-founder of a non-profit organisation, such as Ms. Arbucci is. Just saying.

Thanks @cora and @?!?!

cubedweller @ 02/08/2011 at 11:26 am

@….: “He’s going to be the next big behind the scenes person.”
.
I completely agree with this opinion. Butler does not appear, to me anyway, to have the passion for being a great actor that others of his generation have shown. He shows no evident interest in doing theater, or in taking smaller roles in films just for the challenge of the part. Is it his own lack of interest, or the lack of interest on the part of those doing the casting – who knows? But what really seems to float his boat is the partying and schmoozing. So he might as well follow his passion and do that. He could, in fact, be what’s called a “super-networker”. That is, a person who not only brings people together one-on-one, but who brings whole groups together for mutually beneficial projects. I have no doubt he loves movies, and the storytelling aspect of it. I just think that if he is as astute as some think he is, this would be the most logical career trajectory for him. It will be interesting to see what happens after these next two movies come out. Rapturous phangirl reviews don’t count in the wider world – legitimate press opinion does. If he gets real and consistent raves, perhaps his acting career will take an upswing. If not, I see more paid appearances in his future. Because world travel doesn’t come cheap. It will be great for him, as producer and actor, if the Pinkerton project is a big success. That’s really the one I’m most interested in.

I couldn’t agree more. Who among us hasn’t encountered the mouthy pervs on the subway, the lewd motions and comments from the random pigs on the street? How is it any different for middle-aged women to make catcalls and hoots at Butler’s personal appearances, to devote entire (public) chat threads to discussion of his body parts? Revolting.

You sound very credible. My friend who met him at an afterparty for Booty Hunter related the same kind of info. She said Gerry was a true host at the party and made everyone feel welcome. She also said that as she watched him talking to all these beautiful women that he would flit off quite quickly from some than he did others. I think your 30 second analysis theory is borne out in my friend’s synopsis of her evening at the party. Cheers!

BTW ignore Israel Model, she has already proven herself to be desperate posting her personal ad here hoping to catch Butler’s attention. Quite pathetic really.

a sexy good looking man in a bathing suit is just plain yum.
and as a healthy? women i don’t see the harm in complimenting man if he looks good.

I don’t think the phannies, and i guess i must be one, did anything eww or disgusting. when we see pics of the Butler and we ALL make comments on his looks.
In fact I remember much more crude comments in threads past and posts of pe.ens. which i miss btw.

And no I didn’t giggle or pleasure myself with a doll but simply enjoyed a nice photo. I think we are kidding ourselves if we are just here for the “art of Butler”, we all look, gawk and comment.

Sincerely no offense intended,

JMHO as the filthy minded mildew that I am…….. :))

More than these three (Manny, stupid and cuded) disapproving “phannies” of gawking, it’s their sense of superiority to the phannies that make them frowning at those who like to gawk and comment. They are lily white blushing virgins at mentioning of Gerard’s happy trails. Laughable.

For clarification, Butler is a sexy beast IMO. I enjoy a nice piccie of Butler as much as the next person.

Nothing New @ 02/08/2011 at 3:13 pm

@Nothing New: He did not go out with Pinto and Vergara either. They have boyfriends. He flirts with everyone. The point I am making is that he is networking his preference and keeping up appearances. Anything to improve his situations. Maybe he wants to hang with her close friends the British royals – Beckham. He hangs with SRK in India. Or the elite models and sportsman in Brazil.

Anyway, if he is very determined to hang with supermodels/club crowd do you think he is would considered divorced or mothers as serious. He sounds so superficial whenever he talks about women and romance. Either he is gay or only into perpetuating himself. Helping Haitian or MGP are just vehicles for his own martyrdom. At least, he is smart enough to recognize the latter. True philanthropist go incognito to the work. I agree with other posters, he is by association and networking “in”.

stupidfans @ 02/08/2011 at 4:13 pm

@angelsrock: You realize by now that I don’t care what any of you think of me, right? I write off anything that’s said to us antiphannies. If we don’t blather endlessly about how amazing he allegedly is, we’re automatically “evil” and our comments are “extreme hate.” I’d rather be in that bin than the one with the Gerry doll owners and convention attendees. A

s for the middle you claim to be in, I don’t insult comments that are middle of the road just as you didn’t my comment about his ninja turtle stomach. Had the phannies been out in force when I said that, they would have pounced on me and then I would have responded in kind since they always get so nasty. If only they could just move on when they don’t like something. But they don’t. They even go after journalists who don’t write glowing things about him. Then they wonder why they’re known for their crazy.

Cube, I knew you had more class than the wingnuts. Saying someone is attractive is one thing. Leering or cat-calling like a drooling, desperate perv is another thing. It’s low brow whether it’s men or women doing it. It’s not liberating when women and shows ignorance for those who think it does. It makes them vulgar grease monkeys, the same people who would repulse the very objects of their “affection.”

stupidfans @ 02/08/2011 at 4:16 pm

The piccie of Gerry in the wetsuit looks like the other guy is about to slap him in the head with that paddle. I hope that isn’t part of the training as in, “Stay on the board or I’ll whack you.” lol I’d Krazy Glue myself to it.

The Noise In The Walls @ 02/08/2011 at 4:16 pm

I agree with you Nothing New…It’s all for HIS best interest….It’s all about networking..It’s pretty invident when one of his sites hosted a charity events with many prizes..Those prizes were won by many fans who have YET to see the prize?? It’s been over a year or more???..

@The Noise In The Walls: Gerry does not control the fan sites nor their charity events. How do their projects show he’s all about networking? Although I agree he is.

And, while they may be slow in getting the prizes out, they eventually do. I contributed to one of the charities that caught my fancy last year and forgot all about it. Several months ago I received a notice from the post office to pick up a package. I could not imagine what it was. I even had to sign for it, and was more perplexed when I saw it had been mailed from London. When I got home and opened it, it was a prize I didn’t even know I’d won. A CD and a thank you letter from one of the organizers.

The Noise In The Walls @ 02/08/2011 at 4:38 pm

……
That was a nice gesture…that you received your prize..and I’m sure he can not control the sites..however..some of the prizes have yet to be awarded…:)…

@mold and mildew:
.
We’re good. I too was expressing my opinion. I’m kind of surprised how this hit me. At least my mom would be proud of my prudishness. Cheers!

stupidfans @ 02/08/2011 at 5:02 pm

@….: Agreed that he cannot control the fansites but there’s no excuse for any prize should take a year to mail to the winner. They could get it from the Space Station faster than that.

stupidfans @ 02/08/2011 at 5:05 pm

@The Noise In The Walls: Which prizes haven’t been awarded yet? Would that include the lunch date they were giving away that someone supposedly gave to a child? Wasn’t that around Valentine’s Day last year? I remember some here were assuming it meant they’d get to have lunch on Valentine’s Day with Gerry.

angelsrock @ 02/08/2011 at 5:16 pm

@stupidfans:

Strongly agree!! I didn’t notice any charity efforts for this Valentines Day. Did I miss something?” I do know someone that won a major prize from last year’s effort. She has not received her prize yet. Not good or even ethical really. They should be ashamed and “they” includes dotnet, KKC, and Gerry.

The Noise In The Walls @ 02/08/2011 at 5:20 pm

Hi stupifans..:)
No, these prizes came through a charity event..and prizes were won ..One was for for a visit on one of the sets..and others were for personalized autographs etc..I realize that sometimes..things take time but none of these prizes were awarded as of yet..Just an observation..
nothing more..

mold and mildew @ 02/08/2011 at 5:24 pm

oh stupidfans, the model of class and high brow that you are, i humbly retreat and take my leave of you.

sorry your cra.p doesn’t quite stick to me, and your superior hating of anyone that likes the way Butler looks.

i wonder what is more harmful my leering or your constant phannie bashing.????

but hey, profess your hate away and i will do the opposite.

The woman who won the date with Gerry declined and gave it to one of the KKC kiddies. He ate with the kid and the rabbi when he was in Detroit filming MGP. The same day he did the PSA.

@angelsrock: you’re kidding? Which major prizes haven’t been handed out? I assumed the set visits etc were done on MGP. Not cool at all .net and Alan. They are the ones to blame, but G will get the blame if its not rectified.

gossiphound @ 02/08/2011 at 5:39 pm

@cubedweller: Is the lack of interest in things like theatre and smaller roles also a function of his “advisors” who are looking for commission cheques now rather than later.

I am not sure he is not interested in being a better actor though because he has certainly switched gears for the better and much less money whether or not that was his strategy or his advisors or both. Or so we very much hope the roles in Corionlanus and MGP mark a change in attitude and Pinkerton as well, whether just as producer or if they get him to do the lead. Or is it just the right moves to get some Oscar gold dust sprinkled upon those touseled locks.

Will PTF end up as fluff? Hard to say, it helps that the director is not a known director of fluff, it could be a successful comedy or end up as romcom drivel – they should consult with the director of Dear Frankie, now there was the right mix of humour and pathos and sentimentality.
But White Jazz is certainly a very promising project to my mind and Afterburn has some potential as a better than average sci-fi action film.

@ mold and mildew @ 02/08/2011 at 5:42 pm

Going against Manny and Stupidfans in one day, are you crazy?
You better run for the hills and never return.

gossiphound @ 02/08/2011 at 5:43 pm

@….: I wouldn’t be so quick to pin down Eva Longoria to any one man – I think she’s is going to enjoy her single status for quite some time.

let us not forget @ 02/08/2011 at 5:44 pm

When stupidfans gets too high anad mighty, remind her that her Night That Will Live in Infamy has not been forgotten.

@DIRTY MANHO:

You sound jealous! LOL!

@@ mold and mildew:
.
I have no problem with Mold and Mildew. We exchanged opinions. End of story.

@Longmarcher: I was hoping he would go with Sofia Vergara verses someone like Eva Longoria. Sofia is hysterical and I think it would be a good pairing of personalities. Sofia would probably bring a larger audience and box office. Her career is definitely hot now-She definitely would draw the husband crowd-including mine:)

@lee328: Eva couldnt bring in a crowd for that dead wife movie and that was when she was red hot

@mold and mildew: I’m as confused as you are, frankly. I’m the first person who made the “happy trail” comment and I’m shocked to find out that makes me a “phannie” (I thought it was obvious I wasn’t one) and today I find out I’m a disgusting human being no better than male perverts who degrade women. My comment was meant as a light-hearted joke. It was a completely off-the-cuff one sentence remark intended for a bit of fun. Are those suddenly not allowed? The best part is some who are judging me for this have made far more crass and obcene jokes themselves, especially about phannies. Although unlike my remark about Gerry’s swim trunks their “jokes” are often mean-spirited. Mine was was not. If you can’t tell the difference between a harmless giggle stemming from sexual attraction and sexual degradation than I don’t know what to say to you.

A rose by any other name @ 02/08/2011 at 7:05 pm

I see E.L. as part of the field and not the wife, although she has impeccable taste in clothing and knowing what looks good on her.

angelsrock @ 02/08/2011 at 7:07 pm

@PsychoB:

I am hoping she is NOT the choice. Don’t find her entertaining at all.

@angelsrock: I don’t care for her either. I can think of lots of people I don’t want to have in the role of the wife, but few I wouldn’t mind seeing. Guess I’m back to the original discussions of Courtney or Demi. It seems strange they haven’t announced the cast by now.

It doesn’t matter to me who plays,the wife. Whoever they get I hope she doesn’t play it as a spin off of a character they have already played. Like Eva as a desperate housewife or Sofia as her tv housewife. Bring something new to the role unfortunately we end up seeing people who go to movies from tv just playing their character from tv.

angelsrock @ 02/08/2011 at 7:28 pm

@Cora:

I’m with you 100% on this, Cora. It was a bit of silliness; I joined in too.

angelsrock @ 02/08/2011 at 7:32 pm

@stella:

I wonder if they’ll go “the girl-next-door” type for his wife instead of the hot loud sexy latino.

Someone on another site suggested SJP. Gawd. No. If it isn’t Sex in the City, she can’t sell anything either. Look at The Morgans thing with Hugh Grant. I had hoped it would be good but it was just terrible. Talk about TBH. Guess I can’t help Gerry with the casting either. Like stella, I just know who I don’t want to see. I assume (hope) it’s going to have to be someone at least in their 30s. That narrows the field a bit.

@angelsrock: I think a fiesty Asian would be something different. I would imagine that since they are auditioning for the boy already they have it narrowed for the mom.

@angelsrock: I don’t know what type it’ll be, but I wish they’d make an announcement of the cast. It will probably be someone none of us has thought of.

@KDHT: Ahhhhh. I like SJP. I’m sure she’s not in the mix for this, but they might make an interesting on-screen couple in something.

As long as it’s not Anniston, I’ll probably be OK with the choices for wife and soccer moms.

I think they’ll choose who will be the mom when the role of the son is cast (so they’ll get the “genetics” right).whatever happened to the boy who posted his you tube audition….did he get a part? (if not the son –one of the other soccer players.They’ll need other teams too.) I’m sure they’ll be news soon…start date is only 6 weeks away.
I don’t think it will really matter who plays the mom…as i think the movie will focus on Gerry’s character and his relationship with his son…but that’s just my opinion.

Sofia would upstage Gerry and he would never let that happen..she would be perfect for the role…hope the scottish accent comes into play here…it may be the only thing to save this movie..

Angelina. Charlize. Vanessa Williams. Angelina. Gina Gershon. Someone glamorous and beautiful.
Not some short MEX like Eva or “Veneers” “Can’t Act” Vergera.
Yuck.

seeming all woman here jealous of constance? beautifl and not married exotic buaety, maybe Gerard date short girls if beautfil like constanze???

http://www.rebodybuilding.com/forum/attachments/extreme-fitness-babes/173804d1281218751-constance-hohzorn-chback.jpg

I guess both Amber (Canadian Model) and Voksan (Israeli Model) were just trying to get attention thrown their way by mentioning themselves hre last night?
Ladies…Gerard doesnt come here (that goes for you too constance). You arent going to get a chance to meet him by promoting yourself in a fan forum.

@dåarden:
.
Are you Constance’s pimp or what?

Cora, I agree it was just some lighthearted fun. I’m just as guilty since I agreed with you at the time. People say a lot worse things here. I don’t think we actually called it pubes, just a reference to his treasure trail peeking out of his trunks. I guess that makes me a perv too. I must be in good company if that’s the worst we thing we can say.

Too funny!

@Tonto:
.
The original person who asked the board asked if that was Gerry’s P*bic hair showing at the top of his swimsuit in piccie #2. I was not making a reference to the lighthearted treasure/pleasure trail. Mold and Mildew even misconstrued it to the point of saying anyone looking at a good looking man was a perv. My original ewww post was to the first poster and the poster that answered her with a yes indeedy. Sheeeeeesh…

Just saw Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman in No Strings Attached.
Very cute movie. I liked it. So he is really tall and she is very petite. And it worked well. So maybe Eva and Gerry would work well too….maybe Gerry is changing his image….

Good Point @ 02/09/2011 at 12:05 am

@Amber #1:
Yep, GB spent a lot of time with Eva so it means he likes her.
She is not tall (5’1″) but she is a brunette and she has long legs and he also likes her personally, so that’s 3 out of 4, which is not too bad since we can’t always have everything we like.
here are some of her pix
http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&sugexp=ldymls&xhr=t&q=eva+longoria+pictures&cp=13&wrapid=tlif129722579300310&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=univ&ei=QxhSTcfkCYGKlwePrfDwCg&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&sqi=2&ved=0CDAQsAQwAA&biw=1019&bih=575

Butler and Eva? She’s a loser. NO way IMO would he cast her in a big role in one of his movies. He may be casting B listers like her in the field as soccer moms. Same with Eva Mendez, Vergara etc. That might be fun. But the mom. She’s got to be someone credibile to make this work. Again IMO. I wish we had more information about the movie. What a hoot it would be if Posh had a soccer mom role.

stupidfans @ 02/09/2011 at 12:21 am

@Framo: I love when the jealous Gergoyle phannies show up. It’s fun to see how angry they get about any beautiful woman getting near Gergolo. Sofia was studying to be a dentist. That’s her natural smile. She had it before veneers came along. She’s beautiful and has a great figure. AND she’s rich and successful. She also has a child, beat cancer and seems very happy. Be jealous all you want because Gergolo would rather be with her than you. Women like you make the rest of our gender look bad.

@CJ: I wonder how many women here would appreciate someone they thought was unattractive whinnying endlessly about their pubes. I realize most of you would be grateful for anyone to be attracted to any part of you, but I think there is a healthy percentage who would that kind of talk from some grease monkey to be revolting. So why is it alright to do it to Gergolo?

You know they’ve gone too far when I have to defend him from phannie weirdness.

Manny, never explain yourself to these wingnuts. They’re wrong. You’re right. The end.

@Tonto: There’s been worse said here by phannies. Much worse. That’s just one example that was blatently gagworthy.

Gerry went to Eva’s 30th birthday party, which was right around the height of her rise in popularity.? Good ol’ Gerry. He knows who to latch onto. The man’s social climbing skills should be made into a video game.

stupidfans @ 02/09/2011 at 12:28 am

Olivia Wilde is available. Why not have her take the wife role in the soccer film and then they can date too?

Phannies, fill in your hate here _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________.

@preppy: Isn’t she pregnant with next baby? Leaves her out, but that is genious. I like the idea that the football moms would be recognizable in movie, TV fans, movie fans. I like Eva. That could be the funny in this film. A lot of people everyone know as the mommies.

@stupidfans: Anything with Longoria is social climbing? She’s dead in the water.

However, explain your meltdown night. We are waiting.

Manny, my comment wasn’t directed at you per se. So no sweat, you’re cool.

@stupidfans: I think you have invested too much time in one man you don’t know. Explain. So phannies love him. So What? That affects you one way or the other? I think he’s hot. Amen. So what? GERARD BUTLER IS THE MOST GORGEOUS MAN EVER. That’s my opinion. And you? Whatever. What the heck. He’s just an actor.

still waiting @ 02/09/2011 at 12:59 am

come on stupid. We were all there for your meltdown. NOW give some explanation for irrational behaviour.

@Manny:
“I was not making a reference to the lighthearted treasure/pleasure trail.”
-
Yes you were. This is your post ………

“I don’t know why but when those comments started showing up all I pictured were those phannies touching themselves and giggling as they were staring at the photo contemplating his treasure trail (nice name). Just was too disgusting.”

Fritz loves her knight :) @ 02/09/2011 at 1:08 am

Hey, I’m a “phannie.” I guess. God, I hate that word.
.
Yet Manny, Tonto, CJ and I are all good friends. Go figure.

Eva is MEX TRASH as is Veneers Vergera.
She is a social climber smutslut – ask Tom Cruuise.
Someone classy and movie star beautiful. Longoria is Mario Lopez toss away pos.
Maybe Salma H if they go Mex for this.
Halle would be hot but she suxxxx at comedy.
Olivia Wilde – again Clist. Gerard can’t carry a movie on his own. A C Lister wouldkill the flick
Sorry Olivia – you need a sandwich anyway you alien

so guess I'll come on here @ 02/09/2011 at 1:26 am

guess what? I’m a phannie. So let me pick a name. Shall I be Zara? Really like that name. So that’s me. See you in days ahead. Not in any way connected with Fritz and her people But hi.

Did the brunette standing near him in the beginning of the video get into his car?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHVBQgwdTT0

stupidfans @ 02/09/2011 at 2:27 am

@whatevah: What meltdown? WTF are you talking about?

Oh I see the comment. now that I scrolled down a little. I supposedly behaved irrationally? Um, how exactly? Do explain. And please stop trying to act like I’m covering something up. I don’t apologize for anything I’ve ever said here. I stand by every word. btw your socks are showing.

Phannies accusing others of being irrational. OMG that is the height of hilarity! Carry on. You’re providing endless entertainment. lol

@gabby: I don’t care if they’re invested in him. It means nothing to me, except something to laugh at (and it is very funny to watch). However when the rest of us don’t agree with them and they come at us with their blubbering, then we have the right to defend ourselves. If you phannies can’t take that, tough. Time to grow up, kiddies. If you can’t take it, don’t dish it out.

“Gerard can’t carry a movie on his own. A C Lister wouldkill the flick”

ITA. If I made this statement first, it automatically means I’m a hater. Truth hurts. But it’s still truth. He needs a more popular name than his own to carry the film. Halle isn’t a good choice. She’s as crazy as his phannies and none of her recent films have made money that I can remember. It doesn’t sound like a large budget film, so it’s doubtful he can get a big name without taking a hit on salary for himself. Getting a popular tv actress might be the only way he can go.

@Manny, Manny is right. It was disgusting. Gagworthy.

I see it’s phannie hour here this evening. Anyone else care to engage?

@KatyP.: Uh I strongly suspect that we will not be seeing any A lister for the role of the ex-wife esp since they are going to want some good comedic actresses for the soccer moms as well – too expensive for one and all you need is a good B list movie actress who is probably underrated in the first place. Gerard is the draw.

stupidfans @ 02/09/2011 at 2:41 am

@gossiphound: He isn’t enough of a draw, as Gamer proved. He needs someone who is a very popular, very inexpensive actress – or some unknown who charms everyone like Julia Roberts’ miraculous star turn in Pretty Woman.

@gossiphound:
Sorry douche.
Gamer and Bounty Hunter proved your ASSS-essment is w r o n g

@Water Bottle: Take a pill, the world does not revolve around Gerard Butler, well except in his world and in JJ threads, but the numbers speak for themselves and that is what the suits care about, most don’t even care about the quality of the product they put out, she states the obvious.

Ralph Fiennes did not cast Gerard just for his “strong physical presence” on screen, Ralph, Oscar winner, A lister, highly respected in the industry for the most part, persuaded the Serbian government to give him almost carte blanche yet didn’t have his financing finalized until he got Gerard on board.

peacesister @ 02/09/2011 at 8:52 am

@GH: Do I get this right? Did GB help finance the movie? Or was RFs intention to make people watch his movie? Like, GB can make a ****** movie make a worldwide total of $140 mio if I put him in a good movie, it will make big bucks… ?

http://current.com/1n2rh4c Gerry unusually serious hosting King’s Speech Party

Wonder what was on his mind…

Folks still flocked to him. That charisma must be palpable.

KatyP, Stupidfans, Now that’s what I don’t get. You phannie haters seem to lump anyone in the same box as those who bath with Merak dolls. Why is anyone who disagrees with you meted out the same old drivel of Merek doll owners and extremist of that ilk? I think most here know Butler is no saint and constantly entertaining us with his crazy life style, but the moment anyone says they think he’s hot or anything positive about him for that matter, we’re automatically sent to the phannie box. I guess that puts me and a few others here in pretty good company then.

I believe that the signal is given, we will hear about Gerry

@stupidfans: LOL. Faking amnesia won’t make that go away dear. It’s all here in black and white. You’d look better to ignore it. Or explain it. But don’t pretend you don’t know what we’re talking about. Someone will dredge it all up.

@oh my: are you in 5th grade?

Whatdoyouthink @ 02/09/2011 at 11:46 am

@Nuts: Gerry is researching how to be an Oscar winner. Hoping to do roles with those types. Hanging with the directors and producers. He is into achieving.

No news today. WO has a really bad video from the Kings’ Speech party but it’s not worth posting it’s so out of focus.

They are still having casting calls for PTF, so I doubt if there will be news on that front this week. And who knows if he’ll turn up in Berlin.

Boring day in Gerry World.

Phannies? Big Yawnnnnnnnnn

Everytime I came acrosss the word “phannie” while reading the posts I immediately lost interest in the comments. It’s sooo 5 or 7 years ago and so type specific that anyone with some level of intelligence wouldn’t use that term as their weapon of choice because it takes the intended zinger out automatically. I challenge the users of “phannie” to come up some new.

It strikes me as absurd that although Manny is the one best versed in explaining the definition of a “phannie” (she has done quite a few times in the past at some posters’ request) she randomly and aimlessly uses that word only second to stupidfans. Manny you ain’t as smart as you’d like to think you are and it shows.

Unless Manny, stupidfans, PsychoB et al are clones themselves, don’t lump together and treat the ones showing interest in Gerard’s life and career as such.

Phannies? LMAO!

I have to respectfully disagree. Look at the box office numbers below. Thanks boxofficemojo.com

The Tourist (worldwide) $225,257,168
The Booty Hunter (worldwide) $136,320,546

LMAO. Your post just made me giggle. It’s a joke folks. :)

@Tonto:

It seems that many here are blurring the definition of a phannie and a fan. We have many fans here, me, Guido, you, Cora, Cubie, Curious Cat, etc. and then there are the phannies, GFW, Frammie, Dianne @ WO, DonnaKat, etc. There is big difference.
.
A phannie would own a Marek doll and use it. A fan would not.
A phannie would travel the globe trying to wedge into Butler’s life. A fan would not.
A phannie feels the need to mother/coddle Butler. A fan does not.
A phannie would travel to a film set with a crazy ass poster to get Butler’s attention. A fan wouldn’t go in hopes of leaving him alone to produce a good movie.
A phannie would post twitter games to play with Butler’s peen. A fan would not.
A phannie believes there is no other man on the planet of worth but Butler. A fan does not.
A phannie spends the time to write fan fiction with Butler as the hero. A fan has better ways to spend their time.
A phannie believes The Phantom is the closest to Butler’s true nature. A fan knows better.
.
I think things here are taken way to seriously and that goes for me too. Lighten up folks. This is not rocket science. Cheers! :)

Wow, what a sh!t storm ensued yesterday. I made a comment about how grossed out I am by the boorish behavior of some phans and bloggers, and suddenly I’m accused of saying fan = perv. What a leap – the Black Swan cast would be so impressed.
.
I don’t trash fans for being fans. Why would I – I used to be one myself. And could be again with one kick-@ss performance out of the guy. Speaking strictly for myself here, I make a HUGE distinction between fans, ( normal rational movie-loving folk who like to chat and exchange opinions, and yes, admire pics of a hot-looking guy), and PHANNIES. My personal definition of a phannie is an out-of-control middle-aged woman who acts like a ten-year old tween screamer. A Marek-doll abusing, cod piece-sniffing nutburger who attends every public appearance of her idol, shrieking and hooting and begging for pictures and hugs. Making an uncomfortable situation for others (Comic Con), grabbing @ss (happened), grabbing face (happened), and hurling themselves onto moving cars (happened). Not to mention disrupting movie shoots, harassing coworkers to the point of making them hide their facebook accounts, and traipsing into Butler’s mom’s garden. And not to mention, flaming anyone and everyone who dares to call out “their boy” for anything.
.
I have never dammed anyone for commenting on photos. I am sad that people whose opinions I respect, like Tonto and Cora, think that’s what I said. By all means, admire away. I choose to stay out of the fights, and I choose to stay clear of the threads devoted to Butler’s bits. When the cut vs. uncut crowd takes over here, I get the h*ll out of Dodge.
.
That’s all I have to say about that. Carry on, peeps, and have a nice day.

@stupidfans: “As Manny said, it’s low rent. It ’s no different than some grease monkey making vulgar comments to a woman walking down the street. It doesn’t make the phannies empowered. It makes them sound weird and base. It merits a response from those of us who don’t wish to be embarassed by other members of our gender.”
.
I couldn’t agree more. Who among us hasn’t encountered the mouthy pervs on the subway, the lewd motions and comments from the random pigs on the street? How is it any different for middle-aged women to make catcalls and hoots at Butler’s personal appearances, to devote entire (public) chat threads to discussion of his body parts? Revolting.

seems you and manny and stupidfans have selective memory problems.

maybe you should read your posts again and wonder why some of those middleage women who chat on public threads about his body parts were a little upset.

Cubedweller, To clarify, I wasn’t singling you or Manny out particularly for your comments, it’s Stupidfans who took your comments way out in left field and ran with them. I by no means dispute her right to her opinion any more than anyone else here. I do have a problem with her constant pigeon holing of anyone who disagrees with her about Butler. She brings out the phannie card every time and it gets old after a while. It is my problem and the best thing I can do is ignore her comments altogether, which is a shame because occasionally she can make intelligent comments when she wants to without the mean spirited tones. I realize we’re on a gossip board and it becomes a free for all for posters to come out of left field with attention getting comments, both positive and negative. For those of us that have been here for a while, we’ve learn to respect some of the regular posters and their comments and ignore those that are negative. We’re not going to like every post nor should we. I prefer to have fun without trying to hurt anyone else in the bargain. An opinion is just that, an opinion. Stupidfans, we all love you here, well some do anyway, but sometimes it’s just the way you say it that makes the difference for some of us.

Crap I just looked at the top of JJ here. Divorce Central. Tis the season I guess. Either just before Christmas or Valentines. Because nothing says I love you honey like a constable serving papers. :P

We get it , your part of their club. As fritz stated earlier you are all friends. But do you see how hypocritical you sound. First agreeing than defending. I guess their acceptance is more important than speaking against them, but on JJ that’s just par for the course. The all important sense of belonging that Manny and her minions need. I can’t wait to see if Cora and Mold and Mildew will follow suit, retracting what they said. JJ is quite the socialogy study lab, how people interact. Who leads , who follows. The apologetics and the indifferent. You love stupidfans, really??? Or do you just not want to ruffle any feathers?

Thanks for replying with another sock. You are too predictable too. :O

some may copy that, but you can call me a sock if you want.

@tonto, no I don’t want to ruffle any feathers, but it seems no matter what anyone says here, you still get misunderstood. No, I don’t love stupidfans or hate her. I’d have to know her personally to be able to express those kinds of emotions. Not liking what she says is one thing. I think we can love humanity and still disagree with what people do and say which was my point. As to belonging to THEIR group, we’re friends outside this site, but we can act individually and disagree separately and still care about each other. What a concept! I should know better than to expect that here.
Have a great day everyone!

@peacesister: Ralph was having difficulty securing his financing for Coriolanus until Gerry signed on board even with a very stellar cast lined up. And not only that Ralph got twice the budget he was initially asking for and had trouble securing. Gerry to my knowledge is not a producer of Coriolanus nor put up any financing for the movie beyond talking a cut in his usual acting fees or maybe a back end deal I would imagine.

Now Manny, I would look at how much the Tourist cost vs the Bounty Hunter $100 million vs $40 million and the US box office well Bounty Hunter beat Jolie and Depp, just barely but still.

Yes Jolie and Depp made up for in overseas, $158 million to $70 mill for Booty Hunter but consider this, we knew TBH was crap before it even hit the US theatres and yet they still came, LOL. One expected Jolie and Depp would be dynamite together and yet they fizzled. I guess they too have large fan bases who will see any movie their faves put out just like Gerry and even Aniston apparently.

What is the formula again to be considered a successful movie accounting wise? Given you know how those Hollywood accountants fudge the numbers anyhoo, right Michael Moore?

Good points all Gossip. Another is marketing budget. I just took it at face value according to the box office because that was deep as I was willing to dig.

“And not to mention, flaming anyone and everyone who dares to call out “their boy” for anything.”

And that’s where my story here begins. I made comments when I first came here that were mild about his appearance and performances and was flamed. I responded to the attacks and it got uglier. Then every time I said anything, it was misconstrued by those lunatic PHANNIES (loooooove that term) and I was automatically the devil. So I took up the role and have been having fun with it ever since.

Being the insane drama queens they are, they keep beating their heads against a wall and think their words injure or most amusing of all, matter. They’re not going to run me off. They’re not going to make me a fan, just as I’m not going to make them a non-phannie. They keep trying to force their will on others – including Gergolo himself. It’s a scream to watch, but they won’t force their madness on me and a few others here who won’t toe their line.

You are spitting in the wind and biting the dust when you address the people you have an issue with “phannies”. How dumb are you?
As in OJ’s trial, the glove doesn’t fit!

stupidfans @ 02/09/2011 at 6:14 pm

@Tonto: Tonto, I didn’t “run with” Manny’s comments. She made a good point and I agreed. Cube also agreed. Since you aren’t accusing Cube of running with Manny’s comments then you might have a prejudice about what I say.

As for your concerns about being called a phannie, why are you worried about that? Unless I directly called YOU a phannie, and you’re not one, then why care? The phannies were socking and trying to look like legions against me, as they always do, so I made fun of them, as I always do in those cases. If you were one of the socks, then you deserved to be responded to. If you weren’t, then it’s of no concern to you because it doesn’t involve you, right? That would mean you aren’t the focus of my comments, as you are just a fan.

There is a difference between fans and phannies (although Gergolo seems to have cultivated more extremists than typical fans), as was pointed out earlier in this thread by both Manny and Cube-and accurately stated (again this isn’t “running with” with comments, it’s just agreeing with them). I’m aware of the difference. between fan and phannie (looooooooove that term). That doesn’t mean that if you act like a phannie here and go on the attack, I’m not going to make fun of you for it. I will. Guaranteed.

As for the phannies, the more they try to push me off this site, the more I’m going to stay. I know it’s a little too much like dieting, but they might want to exercise some self control regarding my comments. If they don’t like what I say, they can ignore it. A few here do and they manage just fine. The phannies who can’t, however, will continue to get a response in kind every time they flame me for having an opinion they don’t like.

Deal with it girls.

Just so you know, I LOVE when you’re here. It’s like FTD is delivering me flowers every day. :D

@gossiphound: Gossip, another factor before you consider “profit” is back end money. The Tourist might have cost more to make on the front end, but they might not be paying as much out on the back end to their stars, if they wisely decided not to wait for box office to get the bulk of their paycheck. TBH might have cost less up front, but they might have decided to take the bulk of their checks off the box office. It’s another thing to look at if you’re going to compare films.
