Gerard Butler: Party in Malibu!

Gerard Butler: Party in Malibu!

Gerard Butler smiles as he leaves a party on Sunday (July 3) in Malibu, Calif.

The 41-year-old Scottish stud shared a laugh with photographers as he left the beachside celebration.

Gerry stepped out with his beloved pug, Lolita, earlier in the day for a walk on the beach.

Last weekend, Gerry was spotted going surfing with friends – and later walking shirtless – on the beach in Malibu.

Gerry was recently invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Invitees are recognized for their distinguished work in the entertainment field.

    WHAT A LIFE!

  • martha

    Interesting, isn’t it, how he’s never been associated with any lady in an actual relationship? He’s supposedly such a hound dog … yet.. it seems to be merely for show.

    You know the reason, if you’re open minded.

  • legends

    Yeah, he’s got his ‘angry face’ on – you can tell that he’s sooo over the paps in Malibu. I actually love his angry face, though – weird, huh?

    Gerard will remain single all his life. He cannot live with anyone, neither a woman nor a man.

  • well it was a party

    man is he totally sh/tfaced!

  • http://www.justjared.com Swansong

    He finally lost the weight but he has really aged. Look at all the lines on his face! Too much sun.

    His looks are done and so is his career. If he had spent more time developing his craft he would still have a future but since all he wanted were leading men parts in romantic comedies, his days are numbered.

    Of course he is always alone. Men like him don’t get into relationships. He wants to Play The Field.

  • curious cat

    Rarely to I get to the thread party so early. I have to say this, looking at all the recent pictures, from terrific (walking Lolita on the beach) to horrific (crouched like a troll puffing on a cigarette)—

    I can’t think of when I’ve ever seen a man age so fast, except for the presidents of the USA. Their aging has become such a cliche that as soon as Barack Obama was elected artists were photoshopping how he would look in 4 years, and 8 years if he played the full game.

    But those men took on what is considered to be perhaps the biggest job in the world for an absurdly small salary for what’s involved.

    I really don’t know what GB earns but I know it’s far more than what Barack Obama earns.

    Ever since he hit paydirt with “300″ and became this Hollywood hunk, hottie, etc. he seems to have aged faster than fast. Everything about him looks much older. His face, his body, and something thats undefinable. I’m not sayin’ this is all bad, we all age, unless we die first, And we don’t age evenly. We can look much the same for awhile, then suddenly change. But with some of our A-List movie stars, they seem to age gracefully. Paul Newman for instance. They seem to ease into old age, taking roles that bring out the best of the age they are. And they have real lives away from Hollywood.

    I’m not doing a good job of explaining my thinking I know. Perhaps that we don’t see GB growing into maturity while he ages physically.

  • love being famous!

    @curious cat:

    ITAWY, it is very disappointing that he loves hollywood so much instead of being a real artist and perhaps living far far from h/w

  • Mikado

    He looks breakable and lonely lately.

  • Manny

    I’m giggling… The piccies look like he is complaining all “why are you guys following me? I’m waiting for you f****** to get tired of following me…” He probably has someone waiting for him to start off his 4th of July and doesn’t want to be followed home.
    .
    BTW he looks like a homeless man sitting outside my local grocery store here. They must shop for their jackets in the same place. Butler does have thing up on my local, my local doesn’t pay for a bodyguard. :P
    .
    He doesn’t look well in these piccies. His face is showing every line. Sun and smokes will do that to you. Now I’m wondering if we are going to start seeing Botox Gerry again. Ugh.

  • redOctober

    @curious cat:

    “horrific (crouched like a troll puffing on a cigarette)—”…like many have said in other threads is not like he’s a serial killer now, but that image is for ever ingrained in my brain now. And there’s that “something undefinable” you mention …I’ve felt it too but can’t explain it more clearly with words.

    @love being famous!:

    Far from HW would be great, less money but more quality life and career. IMO.

  • gossiphound

    Going on the scuttlebutt and his own admissions, I think Gerry has injured himself a few times, he overdid the training for 300, and has perhaps suffered every since, his injuries on the set of Gamer and Shattered, so he might be living with chronic pain issues.though he does a good job of hiding it overall if that is the case. He admitted in that one interview with Men’s Journal that he has tinnitus, well you try living with that- we all experienced the ringing in the ears from a concert and the relief when it goes away – no wonder he can’t sleep and my understanding is that most treatments are not effective. Those issues alone will age you more quickly.

    Just asking a question……why do you bother? Nothing better to do?

    @curious cat:
    *
    I think your right about how we all age differently but HOW we age is reflected by how we live our lives. You can have the best genetics in the world and look like crap if you treated your body that way. Just like my parents, both always looked younger then their years, looked healthy as did their family but they both smoked. Its seems like just one day it hit them….boom……they looked like crap, became diseased and died too young. That’s what I worry about with Gerry and all they did was smoke. They didn’t live the fast life he does.

    Gerry seems like he was going to great lengths to improve his health and along the way with that slimming down but I think it was all for image more then healthy lifestyle. His retreating back to smoking shows he has no concern about his health but just staying skinny. That’s how I see it anyway. It will catch up with him fast now.

    It was amusing in his recent interview he talked about how he likes to just stay home and chill out…..what a BSer he is! I’ll bet the man never spends an evening at home just watching the tube.

    Many celebs have hobbies like painting, photography, crafts, antiquing, old cars, collecting stuff, etc. Does Gerry have a hobby besides partyng? Oh, maybe karaoke? Forgot! LOL!

    I guess I was being selfish believing he was different then the rest of the shallow HW types. Makes me sad.

    @gossiphound:

    My younger brother has tinnitus, it’s not only the ringing in the ears but it effects his balance, he can even feel dizzy, faint & sometimes has the sensation of falling when lying down. Meds were useless, the best & most effective advice he got was a varied exercise regime & a low sodium diet.

  • gossiphound

    It is the catch 22 though with losing weight, especially if you’ve been overweight for a long time, the face is one of the first places the fat goes and you almost always look older when you lose weight especially if you lose too much weight too fast. Most doctors of course would rather you lose the weight and look older because they can fix the latter LOL. Personally I don’t think Gerry looks any older thinner, because he was not looking that healthy before he lost the weight frankly. Compare the CFDA photos and the ones from the recent APJ event to the award photos from 2010 for example.

  • Summer’s Eve

    @Swansong:

    NO….you’re a PHOOL! LOL!

  • http://www.chansondelange.com/archives/12 Swansong/Paisley

    Gerry is like everyone else. Depending on the circumstances, (lighting, what he’s wearing…what he’s been doing,.and lately, whether or not he has been wearing a hat;) in some photos he looks great and in others he looks rough. What’s funny to me is that often the good and the bad photos appear back to back. Yeah, he’s aged probably more than he would have had he not smoked or been in the sun too much. The same thing could be said of stars like Steve McQueen, Clark Gable…and even George Clooney. Frankly, I don’t care. He’s still handsome and can still look drop dead gorgeous when he wants to. The rest of the time I guess he’s comfortable just schlepping around like the rest of us. Good for him.

    @curious cat:

    The difference is that in Hollywood’s golden age there was no internet and stars were not photographed as they are now, in some cases daily….so you rarely saw them without their game face on. The internet subjects us all to a more physically realistic journal of how celebs look from one day to the next; and with poor lighting, and a star’s unhappy expressions at being photographed AGAIN….many of today’s celebs, including Mr Butler, can look like like crap. Back in Hollywood’s heyday, unless you went out and bought a gossip magazine, the stars of old were mostly seen at their best.

  • love being famous!

    oh, how could I possibly forget -travelling anywhere and everywhere- from the priorities lists, seriously JJ EDIT BUTTON!

  • love being famous!

    @Swansong/Paisley:

    ITAWY. Today is a TMI society even with regular people’s lives. But celebs were up to the same shananigans (sp?) we all just didnt know about it and they would indeed show the best pics and positive stories of them unless it was in the yellow rags like Star, Enq., etc. Frankly, I would rather see them in a positive light, like back then. I know it’s all for show, hence “show biz” but it was alot more fun.

  • curious cat

    @Swansong/Paisley:

    Well, I don’t go as far back as Hollywood’s golden age :) but I agree that the internet and ubiquitous cameras have given stars more exposure. Still, GB has been a phenomenon for only a few years in the USA and that’s the period in which I knew of him and feel I’ve noticed rapid aging. Maybe it’s the Hollywood lifestyle, the pressure of fame, the jetting all over the world. I don’t know. But I haven’t noticed it so much in contemporaries of his. Paul Newman was perhaps a poor example because he was from another era. But Newman seemed to have a very balanced life, married to the same woman for many years, living in Connecticut, across the country from Hollywood, starting his food business, his camps for underprivileged kids, indulging his race car driving hobby. I think i’ve heard that as a rising young HW star he had his wild side. I’m no authority on any of this, GB just seems to have aged a lot in what, 5 years or so?

  • curious cat

    p.s. I still think he’s attractive. Not saying he isn’t. Except when he is puffing on a cigarette.

  • The Noise In The Walls

    I agree with gossiphound in that he has had afew injuries on many of the sets..

    Paps..again..oh well..It must become annoying at times..I loved his Malibu interview :)…He seemed relaxed to me especially when he was talking about Scotland..That little country put a smile on his face and he’s right when he sez that when people visit there…they never forget it…I know I never will :)..Good to see him by the water..Being pisces..I love the water..relaxing for me..Happy Fourth to everyone!!

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    Well, we better enjoy the pics while we can. He is going to disappear soon for some much needed R&R back home. I think he finds a peacefulness that Scotland offers. Home to unwind for a few days then to his friends wedding and Italy. I wonder if he only survives on catnaps. He will get some TLC from his Mum, then she’ll make him wash dishes.

  • oldbutnotdead

    @curious cat:

    A new thread already. Poor G needs to get to work. I think he looks for age appropriate, although I noticed that he had aged after filming in South Africa for MGP, for a while he looked stressed and older. video of the party, he is not as happy with the paps as it seems: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93pZ3QGdygg

    I think he is just walking home, so not concerned about security apparently.

    As most here know, he had a serious right ear infection as a child, Mastoiditis, required surgery, and in fact said the surgery caused some facial muscle problems; he said for a while the right side of his face looked like he had a stroke as a child. That has probably left residual problems for that ear.

    I agree, I like his look in Rocknrolla best, too thin for my taste now! But still a fan…

    PoorG, good thing he has said he never reads these sites, and does not want to be told what is being said about him!

    Based on these postings, he is close to being a has been (who can pay $30,000 a month rental for a third home), uncharitable, lost his looks, etc, etc, etc…egads…lost all his hotness because he is an addict (two cigarettes in public so far), … the intense scrutiny and dissection is fascinating, particularly since people keep coming back to see what he is doing anyway… :)

    Hope everyone has a safe holiday here in the US!

  • gossiphound

    @love being famous!: Well I believe Joan Collins has written about this, being raised in that era she rather deplores the casual chic of today’s stars exactly because it makes them seem too ordinary.

    It was not just the case of the paparazzi using the nicest photos, the stars of that era would not be caught going even to the variety store without their makeup in the case of the women and without being dressed to a higher standard in an era like the 50s where the dress standard was already higher than today for even the average joe. I imagine under the studio system it was almost a job requirement to look glamorous at all times and you might get called out if you were caught looking slovenly.

    And yes stars were up to shenanigans then but while reported less, the same wheeling and dealing went on no doubt between the gossip columnists, publicists and the studios to bury stories, but some of those shenanigans did got reported and in those days it could be potentially career ending, like the Bergman- Rossellini affair. Liz Taylor had been a tabloid darling providing tons of material for decades,l perhaps because she didn’t seem to hide her behaviour but one wonders if she didn’t hurt her career at certain points of it because of it.

    Paul Newman and Robert Redford sundried those fabulous faces of theirs, are you kidding, but they were already past their career peaks and were busy doing stuff off screen or behind the camera especially in the case of Redford so it didn’t matter. And those blue eyes on Paul, sigh.

  • justsayin’too

    I have to agree with curious cat, red octobe and others. There is something I can’t quite put my finger on in how GB looks this past year. His rapid weight loss did age him, but I feel like he never sleeps and that will age you quicker than even that. He just looks unnatural to me so thin but maybe that is because I do like a muscular man. Oh well, he is still attractive, but I feel he does not have peace in his life and that is hurting him more than anything else. Just my opinion, I really know nothing about him.

    @Taylor:

    I’m inclined to agree with you. I’d love to see him in a nice relationship, but I have a feeling he’s a bachelor for life.

  • gossiphound

    And just saying, one of the most terrifying things I have ever seen on film was Marilyn Monroe leaving the hospital after having a miscarriage, can’t remember if she was married to DiMaggio or Miller at the time, maybe DiMaggio because he was more popular than any movie star at the time except Marilyn, and the throng of paparazzi was like nothing I have ever seen. I thought how could they harass this poor frail woman, do they have no compassion, until the narrator pointed out that Marilyn did not have to leave the hospital by that entrance and was in fact offered a way to escape paparazzi free but such offer was declined. Sigh.

  • http://www.chansondelange.com/archives/12 Swansong/Paisley

    @gossiphound:

    Seriously? Then I guess I am just naive. IMO, anyone who craves that kind of invasive and persistent attention is just plain sick in the head. If I knew for a FACT (fact, not just opinions) that Gerry wants to be followed and snapped everywhere he goes, I would probably lose interest in him. I can’t see how this kind of negative attention is in any way beneficial to him, or to any other celeb.

  • oldbutnotdead

    @well it was a party: Pretty silly comment. I posted the video connected to these photos. Take a look. He is fine. He is annoyed with the paps, and is trying to walking with multiple flashes in his face.

    I do not see him as looking any older than many outdoors men of his age. But he does need cupcakes…maybe he will not do the body building again due to too many injuries who knows.

  • legends

    Blaming the victim?

    Why would so many posters continue to insist that G. craves attention and that he loves the paparazzi???

    Why can’t it simply be a case of a man going to a party and being hounded by the paps. He doesn’t love it. He hates it. (Remember he punched one out a few years back.)

  • Try sitting ina office allday

    @lolita: hello !
    He is going home? great news – i wish he would go home more often – wonder if he will ever move back home or if the US is now his home?
    He looks good – fit & healthy. Happy – not so sure?

  • oldbutnotdead

    @love being famous!:

    He did two films in 2010, many out of the country shoots, both required a lot of physical work, so that was a difficult year for him.

    He is doing two films this year, and has completed the outdoor shoots on one of them, working for quite a long time in Lousiana.

    He is partly in Malibu because he can surf there regularly if he wishes, he has a lot of friends there, and he is working on his surfing movie (mentor to a famous surfer), which begins filming this fall. If many of your friends are in the film business, that is who you hang out with.

    He had three films come out in 2009, and had two (one of them the voice work for How to Train Your Dragon, which is a lot more work than you think) come out in 2010.

    Since 1997 he has had 26 or more films come out, including British films and tv miniseries, plus numerous other small things (such as Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, 1999). Plus lots of talk show interviews for movies, studio mandated interviews for films (hundreds and hundreds) charitable PAs, premieres, traveling for charities, putting on charitable events, etc, etc.

    He works like crazy. Too many nitpickers here!

    From CDAN Blind items revealed:
    #1 – What A list movie actor managed to walk the red carpet at the Berlin Film Festival despite drinking for 36 hours straight. People got drunk from his fumes it was so bad.

    #1 – Gerard Butler

  • a question

    I can hear the phans now making excuses for that reveal.

  • love being famous!

    @oldbutnotdead:

    He makes tons of bank, that’s for sure! He loves to travel and mingle. IMO unless the movie is physically taxing, like a 300, it’s really not “work”. He Loves! charity events only because there are other celebs he can mingle and party with and take pics that will be posted on every gossip site (not that the recipients care where the money comes from).

  • oldbutnotdead

    @love being famous!:

    Well, we can agree to disagree… :), cynicism often colors one’s perspective, so I generally reserve my cynicism for those who do not live as openly as G does (no, I am not referring to his sex life here). He does not like the paps, although he apparently no longer curses them out or gives them the finger as he has in the past. One got hit, and needed stitches, but he deserved it and that is several years in the past.

    Both MGP and Coriolanus were physically taxing, so I am not sure why you think otherwise, as were Gamer, Attila, and Beowulf; 300 was overboard in physical work. MGP was partly shot in South Africa, and not in comfortable indoor sets. G learns something for every film, whether it is how to use a sword, shield and spear; for MGP (he deliberately gained weight) he learned how to use a machine gun. For Mavericks, he is learning surfing, and has been practicing that for quite a while, here and in Hawaii. Not easy to learn for the first time at 41.

    There are many celebs I find boring, idiotic or self serving. G is not one of them so far. As a retired lawyer, cynicism was my stock in trade, so I usually recognize when to use it and when I can drop it.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @Try sitting ina office allday: Hello, how you doing? I agree, sometimes he looks happy and sometimes the look in his eyes is that he is somewhere else lost in thought. I’m surprised he is not blind with all the flashes that hit his eyes. Will he ever go home for good, I doubt it, I do think he will travel back there when he feels homesick. I could be wrong but I think he goes home to regenerate himself and his family sets him straight when he gets to big for his britches. Lately his britches are to big for him. A nice pair of tight pants to show that body is in order. Hope your day is going well for you.

  • love being famous!

    @oldbutnotdead:

    This is meant in the most polite way, no mean spirit here…….:)

    How can you possibly think he does not love the media?? How do you explain him always being photographed? He knows his pic will be taken at countless events that he attends. It just seems to be he loves to get his pic taken, he is a bit narcisstic.
    The only thing of course we all know is he is EXTREMELY secretive about his love/sex life, we see him with people, but unless we know him personally, we have no idea what his relationship is with them!
    And please, the crazy pranks he has done in the past few years, must be for attention, maybe more than fame, he certainly seems to crave attention!

  • gossiphound

    @a question: Well given there is tons of video from that event and no one noticed anything amiss makes it hard to believe and I had my money on some of the other actors at the Berlin Festival, ones known for drinking too much already and as such more likely to be functioning alcoholics. True Grit ehem.

    Anyone who had been drinking alcohol for 36 hours straight if not passed out and near puking would be stumbling around, unsteady on their feet and be rather incoherent at the press conference which he was not. Guess we’ll have to look at it again. Didn’t think enty considered Gerard A list. He’s moving on up in the world then?
