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.

    Hot mess, I agree with you for the most part. We’re all here for various reasons, but I can’t understand the reason for posting here strictly to bash someone you don’t even know unless it’s just to stir the pot. I think everyone has a right to voice their opinions or perspectives whether we all agree with them or not. GB is not nor ever will be a saint, but then none of us are either. As you said that why we needed a savior. Either you take GB with all his flaws and questionable behavior or you don’t. That’s what makes things interesting here. No one really knows what is true and what isn’t, unless technology has come up with a way to get inside his head and I for one would rather remain oblivious to that kind of truth. Some of us (regulars as some call us) have been here for a few years and have seen it all. We take half of what’s said here as gossip and the other half with a grain of salt. People will always chooses to believe what they want to in the end. His close friends and family love him for who he is. We don’t have to and I think that’s okay with him as long as they (family and friends) do. I think most here know he’s no angel and continue to follow the Butler sage out of interest and curiosity and/or plain devotion as a fan. Fans can come in all shapes, sizes, colors and various kinds of mental stability as we’ve seen here. We don’t have to be friends, but we can be respectful to anonymous posters as you have pointed out, like we would want to be treated. We’re all hot messes one way or another. I’m not sure that makes sense, but I think you know what I mean.

  • OFFS

    wow, touchy bunch aren’t you, like I said why are you not at fan sites, if you don’t like Gerard criticized. Now I am pathetic and immature, really? I can”t be a fan if I have a different personal opinion of him than you? But i suppose I am stirring the pot now, eh?

  • Well

    @OFFS:

    “Now I am pathetic and immature, really? …. But i suppose I am stirring the pot now, eh?”

    You said it.

  • OFFS

    @Well: Its been so nice chatting with you Butler fans, he must be so proud of you all. I look forward to his next movie, as a fan I can say that. Or can I? God help the poor bug/ger if he ever gets a real girlfriend. You don’t mind lobbing the criticisms then. Thanks for proving my point. No room for opposition here, let the phannies have it. Good luck Manny.

    @ TrySittinginanoffice. This is my take on the interview. When he tried to talk about Mavericks she cut him off and wanted to see the house. When they came inside he did look distracted a little. She went right for the hookup with Biel. If I was the interviewer I would have grilled him like a drill sargent. I would have asked more questions about the Maverick movie and how he became interested in it. I would have asked him about the oscar buzz and how he felt about that, would it be a blessing of a curse. If he wins how would he try and top that performance. The two books he has the rights to, is he planning on acting and producing in them. How far if anything has changed on the Burns role. What other types of movies is he interested in making. Does he plan on doing any tv shows or movies for tv. There is so much that could have been asked of him in regards to his career. One last question I would have asked him if I could give him a hug. I would restrain myself from shimmying up his leg with all the strength I could muster.

  • niknoks

    @lolita:

    Judging by the way they introduced him, they were going for ‘sex symbol’ angle, they weren’t interested in his career. I also had a look at the interview with Sylvie van der Vaart that Yolanthe (the presenter) did, it was atrocious. Sylvie is a model, presenter, breast cancer survivor and subsequent campaigner and all Yolanthe wanted to talk about was her marriage to footballer Rafael van der Vaart. She seems to me as someone who is incapable of doing an interview of any real substance.

  • lolita

    @niknoks: Nik, that is how she came off to me too. The boring question, the sex symbol question, not what he is doing but who. That was more tabloid than an interview. He usually is more animated in interviews but he really wasn’t given anything to work with. IMO

    @redOctober: Red, thanks for the pics. I like the one where Gerry is standing there waiting on her while she socializes with her new found friends. I’m glad he didn’t give her away. She must be very well behaved because she stays so near to him when they are out in public.

    Katie in LA- Nice to hear the good things about GB and his professionalism. I like him even though my interest in his films has been sorely tested with several made in the past year or two. I first saw him in Attila and there was something about him beyond his great looks that hooked me. I saw such tremendous potential for his future. His early films seemed to confirm it until lately. It may not be his fault, but I think I can speak for lots of fans that have been VERY disappointed in his career choices but also in the way he is perceived in the media. I have to say he has contributed to the disappointment considerably with all the “mystery” about his personal life. Instead of making him a bigger star it makes him a media whore that takes AWAY from his talent and career. My problem with him has been the fact he is almost 42 and all this subterfuge about his love life is really getting old. If you date someone, who cares if you are seen with them. A list Stars like Brad Pitt, Russell Crowe, etc… have personal lives and it doesn’t take away from their career. Even Clooney, who is a confirmed bachelor takes his latest squeeze out in public and everyone has heard him say over and over, no kids or marriage for him. Many of us want to see him get the credit he deserves for his talent but he is not making it easy with all the PR shenanigans. Machine Gun Preacher and Coriolanus look like they could give him some serious consideration for awards season, but not if it is overshadowed by his latest romantic escapades. Die hard phannies will say poor GB, it’s not his fault, but I disagree. He has the power to end a lot of the media bullsh#t by just being open about his life. He CHOSE the spotlight so deal with it and all that the new media entails(twitter, FB, etc..) Of course if he is shagging a new one every other night, maybe he is that shallow and that is all there is to him. I’m waiting to see what happens this next year and then I may be done watching his career for good. Many of us are fans, but tired of the attention being drawn away from his films and given to speculating who he is involved with. He’s a grown man and unless he is celibate, he probably has relationships from time to time. Who cares if they are few and far between, male or female, or a new one every week, just be open and then the media will move on to someone else they can speculate about and GB can focus on his roles and get serious about his career.

    JMO and I’ll admit I’ve not been on this gossip site very long and I usually just read but I’m kind of tired of the fluffy interviews that most people do.I get tired of the interviews that a lot of newspapers and tabloids do because I always get the feeling that the interviewer is anamored with the celeb or star they are interviewing.They seem to lack asking intelligent questions. I know stars have something to promote and they all want to do an interview with them but I’d rather see/ read one or two depth interviews than a bunch of fluff. Tell me something I don’t already know if that’s at all possible.

  • oldbutnotdead

    @Aqua: You will not usually find any good interviews in HW, but G has had a few, you can try to find them at Gerard Butler Gals, but I think you have to be a member to download, not sure.

    Lots of them on Youtube. I liked the Dorothe Skappel interviews.

    @OFFS: I have no problems with opposition, if it gives me new information that is real, that I did not have before. But the kind of people who are reporting these “blind” articles are not offering opposition, no facts, just smears that can neither be denied or confirmed.

    In the Dorthe Skappel interviews of 2009, he indicated he stopped reading a lot of what is out there on the net and in public media because “at times it can be downright hurtful, unfair and dishonest…”.

    and that is where a good deal of the posting on JJ falls. Not all of it of course. If you have facts, go for it. If you do not, and all you have is guestimating, you may find people opposing you.

    @justsayin’too:

    Interesting, sort of a sandwich statement, I like him but….imo (yes, I am going to render yet another opinion…!) he owes us movies, but he does not owe us any info on his private life or the way he lives it or the personal choices he makes. Sometimes it annoys me, but he does not owe it to me.

    I would love to see him happily married and with kids, but, I am sure his mom says that as well as his brother and sister; he will do whatever he wishes to do!

    He may have goals he wishes to attain first.

  • sorryladies

    I work in the media and I’ve been lucky enough to meet quite a few movie stars. I have to say most have been really nice, professional and accommodating.

    I’ve also met Mr Butler. Sorry to break it to you ladies – he was one of the rudest. Nice looking, but very up himself. Again sorry cause I know most of you really adore him. I’ll understand if you don’t believe me, or thumb me down.

  • niknoks

    @sorryladies:

    It;s okay to have that personal opinion, particularly if you’ve met him. Not everyone is going to like everyone else. That’s okay, nothing wrong with that.

    -

    It’s people who talk utter sh*te and write bile about people they don’t know and have never met. I’m not talking about general criticism of someone’s actions or behaviour but just purely offensive trash with no basis.

  • justsayin’too

    oldbutnotdead- I enjoy your comments, but I do have to agree to disagree on this one. His career is based on the public buying into his films, career and yes his lifestyle. This is part of the business and he can’t pick and choose the parts he wants to indulge in and then say no to others. This is my perception lately of him, he gives interviews and answers questions about who he has or hasn’t dated especially when promoting something he is going to make or has made money off of from the public yet he plays coy when he wants and says his private life is private. I say stop toying with the media and giving out tidbits when you want something from them and just be who you are. The media will play games with someone else and you can get on with what matters. I don’t care if he marries or has kids or is another Clooney, Just get on with it already and put out some great work and keep your private life truly private and not use it to promote bad movies. I have bought movie tickets and DVD’s so I think I have a right to voice my opinion. Of course it is ONLY an opinion and others on this board have theirs which is fine with me! I just see him as a media whore lately and not a serious actor, but maybe that is a problem with his advisors or management and maybe he needs to clean house and get better representation.

  • TrySittingonMyFace

    I have met Gerard and he was a total sweetheart.
    A little goofy but sweet…

  • jinks

    RedOctober. Thank you for the photos. For me they are the only interesting things in these pages of prattle. I adore Gerry, but I find the comments here just plain tedious, and I’m not reading them anymore. I want to see him and read about his movie opening dates and premieres. The rest of his stuff is so boring. Speculation, back and forth or boring opinions. Yackyity yack. Some of you must have a lot of time on your hands to keep blabbing silly stuff.

  • oldbutnotdead

    @sorryladies: Totally the opposite of what Katie in LA said above, whose husband has met him, and what has been said over and over again by other people who have met him. You could be right, maybe he had a bad day…or maybe you did?

    We all have bad days. I have far fewer now that I am retired …. :)

  • Bad Day

    I’ve met him and was not impressed but when I posted it here months ago, I was torn a new one. It’s best to keep your month shut and let others believe what they hope is true.

  • she

    @niknoks: “Wow, I feel the atmosphere around here is getting a little tense at the moment, even amongst people that usually get on and have a laugh together. What’s going on? It’s bad enough having to deal with the regular crazies, without getting tetchy with each other.”

    If you wrote this regarding my convesation with manny, I think that even with best friend sometimes misunderstanding happens and the way Manny responded I admire her more. I find that she is a sensitive person

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    In the interview when he was asked about his family his voice softened and his love for Scotland came through. He also said he is Mum’s boy. That was the best part of the interview, honest answers to her questions. I am not always in a good mood and can be sarcastic at times but I try to be decent to people who are decent to me. Sometimes I fall short of that, so if he is rude sometimes, maybe there was a reason. We just finished one of the toughest closing of month end at work. My last nerve was really being tested.

  • niknoks

    @she:

    It’s not any one person or altercation in particular it’s just that everyone seems a bit on edge, including myself. I lost my rag a little in the last thread. :)

  • niknoks

    @lolita:

    I can sympathise with you there, I was an accountant for a few years, in a former life, Month End can be a real b!tch.

  • she

    @niknoks: This place has different vibes at different times. What I have learned is that it’s temporary and then come a new thread or new posters and all is forgotten.

  • Summer’s Eve

    I think Gerry’s rude to people who are probably rude to him. I DO believe he’s very nice in person. I’m also certain he can get grumpy too, especially if he’s bugged in his down time by people asking him too personal silly questions or taking photos without permission.

    The only thing I can surmise is that there are still a few jealous males that come to this site and try everything they can to put him in a negative light, maybe even paps venture in here. If they’d copped a better attitude themselves, they’d get more photos and dates! LOL!

  • Hot Mess

    There sure were a lot of pictures of the 4th July parties for all of hollywood. Alot of pics of guys with shirts off….guess this is normal being at a pool or the ocean.lol Lots of bikini pics. Glad it seems everyone had a good time….Hope GB has a nice time in Italy… Well, now back to the real world….

    @she:

    Very very true! Most days it’s quite entertaining and enjoyable. People agree to disagree and we move on to the next topic. We just have to learn to put up with the immature mud-slinging and the potty-mouthed adolescents who show up every now and again. Some days it seems their goal is to turn us all to the dark side. But we grin and bear it and return another day to enjoy and discuss and comment on Gerry’s antics, pics, and vids. Seriously, do any other actors get the dialogues that we have here. (I wouldn’t know since I don’t visit other actor’s gossip sites.) Which reminds me also that I don’t get visiting an actor’s gossip site to bash them. Who has the time or energy??!! If that brings them joy then so be it.

  • malgo
  • she

    @angelsrock: I don’t know what happens on other actor sites too. As for gerry’s sites, this is the only thread I post. I like it here despite all the problems.
    It doesn’t take a lot of time or energy to write a comment that will make someone feel bad. It’s an attitude. I believe that poeple who are being ugly here are being ugly in the real world too.

  • Scout

    That’s nice for him to get back home for a few days

    @malgo:

    See….GRUMPY Gerry! LOL!

  • Hmm

    So Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are back together?????
    Didn’t see that one coming (yeah, right).

  • so gullible

    @Hmm: Do they both have movies coming out soon?

  • Question.

    Where has @jmp ‘s post gone to?.

  • niknoks

    @Question.:

    I thought one had disappeared, couldn’t figure out which one it was. I don’t think there was anything wrong with it. It seems the JJ board is turning it the Bermuda triangle.

  • curious cat

    @Scout:

    You can go right to it by printing “Gerard Butler Malibu interview” in search engine and it comes up. No need to wade through the thread. I like that house too! Wow! Let’s get together and buy it!

  • @so gullible

    I think that he has,don’t think she has one out yet.But I don’t think that has anything to do with it.It was always on the cards that they’d get back together.Everyone else could see it.That little bike ride with Gerry was to make JT jealous.It seems to have worked.

  • niknoks

    Just realised my last post made no sense at all, this is what I get for Alt & Tabbing between posting on this board and tweeting on The Apprentice.

  • oldbutnotdead
  • curious cat

    Oh, my, so much said since I was here last only…when? my posts are always too long and I don’t really have much to add here, so I won’t bother addressing individual comments except RedO, thanks for hte pics, oldbutnotdead, for the Skappel link and others, Lolita, you would be a good interviewer.
    I have spent some years in the journalism businesss and so many of these superficial reporters really aren’t trained journalists. They don’t know how to do research or how to ask solid quesions.

    For the most part this has been a very civilized thread even though people disagree.
    I want to weigh in two cents on a couple of things. Skappel interview unfortunately to me, focused also on his personal life, not even the movie on the poster behind them. In the last 24 hours sometime I caught part of an interiew with Rob Lowe, who I think said better what I think GB was trying to say.
    In interview by Gayle King, he was asked about his public exploits and rumors and scandals in his younger days.(including drunken parties and a sex tape, which I just don’t remember anything about.) All his exact words tI forget but some of it was that you can get carried away by fame at first and start to believe your press, especially if it comes when you are young and immature. You do things you have to own and then try to move on. But that he learned all these fans who seemed to love and adore him didn’t love HIM at all; they didn’t KNOW him. They were projecting an image of their own making on to him, it actually objectifed him and became uncomfortable and degrading to deal with. His language of choice suggests he might have had professional therapy to get these insights, but I never really followed his career.

    I’ve often thought GB was the kind of entertainer who curried attention–even from the old days he’s talked about when he got drunk and amused his friends–without thinking of the quality of attention he got.

    People ask why others come here if they don’t like him. It’s not a matter of that. People can like him and be disappointed. As Manny said, this isn’t a fan site.

    I expected oldbutnotdead to weigh in a bit more on the libel issue. Gossip has always been part of the movie industry and yes there have been periodic lawsuits when the yellow rags went too far.
    But the Internet is the wild frontier. GB touched on that from the celebrity pov in that interview too. Nowadays veryone has a cell phone and a camera, and there is Facebook. Information is being delivered all over by people with no concept of the laws of libel and rights of privacy.He said someone can see him having coffee with someone with someone and snap and picture and it’s around the world in minutes, starting gossip. I noticed that he never actually said what the gossip would be. Interesting. Just “rumors.” Has he been coached? Probably. Definitely. He has talked about being sent to media training seminars. We all know that if you repeat a rumor, even to deny it, it reinforces the original message.

    From my understanding, lawyers are working out how to prosecute people for libel on the internet. My understanding is that they will go after the sites, not individual anonymous posters (although don’t assume they can’t find out who we are!) Then, As obnd said, they’d REALLY be in court, not just all day but 24/7/ I have been told this has already happened but I would have to dig that up.

    What I surmise will happen is what has already been the pattern in more conventional media. Professional media organizations and their lawyers sometimes know the law is being violated, whether it’s libel, plagirism. copyright violation, etc. But they wait until there is a really, really big target with deep pockets to go after. A megaconlomeration they can sue successfully and establish a precedent.

    It’s all amazing to me, what people feel free to say on the internet. As a journalist I’ve been involved in numerous editorial conferences in which some news story about someone is discussed. The rule of thumb was you have 3 reliable sources to validate a story, and even then the editorial board evaluated the sources and discussed whether the public’s right to know and need to know outweighed the subject’s right to privacy.

    If a local senator is caught drunk driving with a police report the public has a right to know. If some paparazzo on the internet thinks Mr. Butler “looked” drunk on a picture in which a) he showed no signs of drunkenness or 2) is claimed to be a person who isn’t even recognizable those two items should never have been sent out. As an editor, I would have killed those stories and not because of any worship of Mr. Butler.

    But you can’t stop the internet. SO FAR!!
