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.

    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. I can learn a thing or two from your posts because of the way you present them. I hope you stay here and post for a long time because they are so worth reading and a refreshing break from the nastiness.

    hairy, not heiry…sorry for the typo.

    You can buy “Rebel” on DVD. Here’s a link.

    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.

  • lolita

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

  • curious cat

    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.

    @OBND, what C Cat says is true and we wouldn’t want to lose you because some people like to be cruel for the sake of cruel.

    Link to the great blog mentioned by lolita:

  • 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.

  • mymymy
  • lolita

    @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.

  • gossiphound

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

  • lolita

    @stella: Thanks for posting the link.

  • stella

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

  • gossiphound

    @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

    @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

    @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

    @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!

  • lolita

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

  • angelsrock


    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.

  • mila

    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

    @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


    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.

  • laruj


    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.

  • lolita

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

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

    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.

  • Lavender

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

  • Lavender

    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.

  • oooophs

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

  • gilda the good
  • Interesting

    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.

  • Sofie

    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

    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.

  • PsychoB

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

    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


    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.
