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.

    @GUIDO: Happy friday, guido. I know that is not you…you are never mean or snarky.

    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.

    Wow, Georgia. You are a piece of work.

  • curious cat

    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.

    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.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

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

  • GFW

    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

  • GFW

    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

    @oy: Really actually has a connection to the lens of the camera, film (if not digital), etc, and in other photos, he looks more tanned. He is the Best looking spam around!

  • oldbutnotdead

    @oh please…:

    Some one with standards as high as yours, must surround yourself with toned male beauty, right?

    hmmm…why do I suspect you do not have much of a life except to post things you believe will irritate or annoy…You are spending too much time indoors very likely. Get a life. Sad stuff.

    @So Swedish

    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.

    @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

    @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

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

  • realitycheck

    @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.

  • stella

    @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.

  • Woowooo

    why???

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

    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…

    GFW – how fricking hilarious was that post of hers. Frammie doesn’t have a relationship with Ger and guess what…. neither does fan fiction GFW. OMG. ROTFLMAO
    .
    @curious cat – I know. You would think with all the heat I would love to sock, but I’m not going to hide behind socks to state my opinions. That is cowards territory and I don’t go there. :)
    .
    @realitycheck:
    .
    You are right. That is why I find it hilarious that people just don’t take him at face value. He has shown us over and over again what makes him happy and what he is pursuing.

    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?

  • Curious

    who’s his buddy?

  • stella

    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.”

    @realitycheck:

    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

    @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

    @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.

  • stella

    @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.

  • DIRTY MANHO

    How can ANYONE WITH A BRAIN like this old bearded hairy smelly-looking manho STD-stick?! You beyotches are fcuking retarded. I bet this manho has lots of diseases considering that he lets nasty women that he doesn’t even know fcuk him all the time.

  • Looking old

    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!!

  • hera
