Gerard Butler Loves Local Art

Gerard Butler checks out the local art scene in Jackson Square with two friends on Sunday (April 24) in the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The 41-year-old Scottish actor has been in Louisiana shooting his latest movie, Playing The Field, along with Dennis Quaid.

Gerry‘s next project will be How to Train Your Dragon 2, which will hit theaters in 2013. How to Train Your Dragon, the tale of a young Viking named Hiccup who defies tradition and befriends a dragon, has grossed nearly $500 million at the worldwide box office.

    …with the guy from MGP set in Detroit…

  • I’m from Vietnam

    shia labouf’s future

    @redOctober: Thanks Red, I knew the big blonde looked familiar. Maybe he is working on PTF too.

  • redOctober


    “the big blonde” …lol.

    …the other guy looks familiar too .

  • http://justjared lolita

    @redOctober: Gerry is no shorty by any means…but that guy looks like a giant next to Gerry and the other guy. It seems like Gerry keeps friends with people he works with and possibly hires them for his projects because he knows their work ethic and feels comfortable working with them again…if that’s the case.

  • angelsrock


    Could this be the assistant that he met while filming Beowulf and who traveled with him a bit thereafter?

  • lady bee

    Love that he is cultured……And of course I believe that he is….LoL

  • redOctober

    I agree about making friends on set.

    “Filmmaking is a uniquely collaborative medium and the coming together of many people towards one creative goal. The people are also one of the best reasons to stick around. A good friend on a set has the potential to become a good friend forever.”

  • redOctober


    …the other post was meant for you ; )


    …the man you mention seems a bit older but I could be mistaken.

  • Nuts


    That was an Icelander named Halle Hansen. He traveled to India and other places with Gerry. Gerry said he was his assistant, driver, nutritionist and spiritual advisor.

  • Cora

    @angelsrock: I think you’re talking about Halli Hansen.

  • redOctober

    …I this is the last photo of them together, but I’m not sure-

  • kelly

    looking good gerard luv ya keep bringing the sexy and thank jj for all the post

  • Me2

    Thank god… a new thread!!… I wonder how long this one’s gonna be?

  • gossiphound

    @angelsrock: As far as I know that one guy was part of the MGP crew and got signed onto work for PTF as well and not any previous GB movie. You are thinking of the guy from Iceland Halli Hansen I believe his name is. I believe this is a photo of him

  • gossiphound

    Oops everyone was posting the same info at the same time.

    Do you think he actually bought anything?

  • Paisley

    I doubt very much that he bought anything. Those appear to be charcoal portraits of celebrities. I’m not dissing the artist at all, as they appear to be pretty good from what we can see of them, but most people wouldn’t buy something like that to decorate their place with. I think Gerry was just out for a walk and happened to stop there. Looks like he was at loose ends for Easter poor thing, coming from a Catholic upbringing. What a shame – I would’ve invited him over for Easter dinner in a fraction of a heartbeat.

  • xyzee

    He’s up for a Scots’ fashion award.
    Must be because he looks so hot in a tux.
    He sure is getting his money’s worth out of the California T lately. Maybe it replaced the Colorado one.

  • http://justjared lolita

    @redOctober: Red, thanks for the link. I think Gerry is a pretty loyal friend when he lets someone in. It’s good to see him out and about relaxiing. Soon he’ll be back to the grind stone!

  • heidi

    Nice he’s loyal to people he has worked with and gets them jobs on other projects. I wish he’d get Reno a new acting gig. After all, the poor kid suffered thru a Gals convention for him.

  • Sun


  • xyzee

    JJ’s got Gerry’s next project wrong. He’s overlooked Mavericks. I wonder where things stand with Afterburn and White Jazz. Is White Jazz the correct title?

  • Manny

    That portrait of Ray Charles is classic.
    Makes sense that he would keep his art options open. The dog at his front door needs a rest. :))) Any news on the house hunting in NYC?
    Why is it when he bites his bottom lip like above is he so damn adorable to me? ;)

  • Me2

    I was so happy about the new thread that I 4got 2 actually comment on the pix!…. I think its so cute how he bites his lip and love the hair.

  • http://justjared lolita

    @Manny: Manny, even though he is a scamp…he is adorable!! My darling grandma used to call me a scamp.

  • Eve

    Wish he’d nab that one of Paul McCartney for me! LOL!

    He’s probably thinking, “I’m a celebrity…where the fook is mine?”

  • http://justjared lolita

    @xyzee: Some of his downtime clothes may be a bit questionable…but there isn’t a finer looking man when he is dolled up and i know you agree.

  • gossiphound

    Maybe Gerry was looking for portrait of a pug on black velvet, just kidding. Is Lolita a forgotten dog now? Another older woman cast aside because her looks have faded, gained some weight?

  • angelsrock


    Thanks cora and nuts!! Yes, I do remember his name now, Hallie. Gerry mentioned him on the Ellen show. This is not Hallie. As a producer, I guess he carries some of the past movie staff personnel from movie to movie. He must think a lot of this fella.

  • angelsrock


    Thanks for the help.

  • xyzee

    @lolita: Oh, yes, I agree. I think he’s beautiful even in his ratty T-shirts. Clothes don’t make this man. He doesn’t need any extras.

  • Eve

    PSILY was on Lifetime last night! They cut a lot of it out. There’s nothing finer then that man walking along that Irish road! That’s the look I love the best on Gerry.

    I was wondering where Lolita was too. He has her sometimes with him on the set but since he is renting a house by the lake, she could be there. He probably hired a poop picker upper though.

    I’d do it!

  • http://justjared lolita

    @xyzee: ITAWY!!

  • LOL

    Don’t be alarmed by the news that Gerard Butler is up for a fashion award. It’s from Scotland. Now listen people, don’t get all up in our grill about being mean to the Scots. We don’t have anything against them it’s just that don’t have an enormous choice of people to pick from. Tilda Swinton made the list. Okay. And judging by our exclusive pics of Butler checking out art in New Orleans, they didn’t look at these photos when they were making their decision.

    Gerard was in NOLA with two pals checking out the art scene in Jackson Square. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Butler is in the big easy shooting a movie called Playing the Field which also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones. But you don’t have to wait until that movie comes out to see the fashion icon on the big screen. Butler’s movie Machine Gun Preacher is due in theaters this fall.

    Caught some on “300″ on TNT yesterday . . . Happy Easter to me . . . I’ll take a Spartan King over a chocolate rabbit any day! :)

  • http://justjared lolita

    @dmp: There is nothing finer than that wooley mammoth in his leather panties!!

  • Paisley

    @dmp: I had a Spartan King AND a chocolate bunny!

  • Eve

    I usually get a choco bunny for Easter but I betch so much about getting candy, no one gave me one! So about nine o’clock last night, I was having choco bunny withdrawal and remembered I had this huge one I got one year and instead of eating it for days, I put it in the freezer!

    So I went to the freezer and spotted the lovely pastel colored box buried underneath the frozen veggies, pulled it out and looked at his little bunny face smiling back at me and couldn’t do it! I returned him to his frozen hiding place!

    Then I just had a piece of carrot cake instead! LOL!

  • Ziggy

    Nice to read that thus far nobody has totally ripped him to bits :)

  • Ziggy


    Wish he’d nab that one of Paul McCartney for me! LOL!
    He’s probably thinking, “I’m a celebrity…where the fook is mine?”


    Perhaps that is what you’d be thinking. It’s rude to put thoughts in other people’s head – you have NO idea what he’s PROBABLY thinking! No wonder you get so many thumbs DOWN! *Rolls Eye*

  • oldbutnotdead

    @Ziggy: @Eve:

    Funny, Eve! I thought that briefly as well. The kid looks a little cranky in these pics…

  • Shitney

    For all of you fools who thought this guy was getting too skinny…
    Look at this slopster fat.
    Nice boobs, dude.
    He needs some muscles like sloppy Miranda Kerr.
    King Leo is dead – who is this bum?
    He looks like shat

    Is that guy his new man???
    Looking sharp together!
    Is Gerard the bottom boy???

  • What What IN the Butt

    HAHHAHAA this is all for SHOW.
    He is POSING with his boyfriend…to act like they are all “artsy fartsy” when in reality he probably wishes he was heading to SPLASH new york (chelsea). Or Rawhide. LOL!

  • Paisley

    @Ziggy: Looks like you spoke too soon Ziggy. There are some folks who post here who do NOTHING but look for new and creative ways to insult him.

  • gossiphound

    Craig Ferguson is a pretty snappy dresser, why isn’t he a Scottish style icon? He rarely is caught not looking to some degree polished in his attire.

  • gossiphound

    “Yes I am rather snappy if I do say so myself”

  • xyzee

    @gossiphound: Maybe because he’s now an American citizen. Heritage may not count.
