Gerard Butler: Shirtless Boat Ride in Ischia!

Gerard Butler: Shirtless Boat Ride in Ischia!

Gerard Butler goes shirtless while spending time on a boat with a mystery girl on Saturday (July 9) off the coast of the island Ischia in Naples, Italy.

The 41-year-old actor spent time with Pascal Vicedomini, founder of the Ischia Film Festival, earlier in the day. Gerard is in town to receive the Actor of the Year Award at the festival.

The 2011 Ischia Film Festival kicks off on Sunday (July 10) and will last one week. Among the events at the festival will be a premiere of Nicole Kidman‘s film Trespass.

more rumours and spec about another “mystery” girl

# 2

LMAO his hair.

So Swedish @ 07/09/2011 at 2:24 pm

Thats one boat with precious Scottish cargo!

By the way, those sunglasses on the woman are weird looking…

# 4

is that his natural hair
black looks better but this haircolor also suits him

# 5

The blog is a tool for Miranda Kerr / Gerard Butler, the england royal couple / Pippa / Rihanna promotion…

So Swedish @ 07/09/2011 at 2:28 pm

I actually like his hair all tousled and rough. It’s nice with a man that isn’t all about his looks 24/7.
And we all know that he cleans up really nicely when he wants too….:)

# 7

Why do people like this guy so much? He’s dull and a sell out (makes crappy Hollywood films apart from Coriolanus which looks interesting).

# 8

@Alaia: I have no idea. His accent is alright but he always looks smelly and his movies are wack. He bores me too. I think he has a lot of ‘mature’ fans.

The Noise In The Walls @ 07/09/2011 at 2:44 pm

Coriolanus may be a pretty good film..
Have fun in Ischia Gerry! Looks like it’s great weather there !

A True Fan @ 07/09/2011 at 2:45 pm

Jared the quality of photos lately is really bad. Gerry looks gorgeous no matter what.

LOL I just knew some shot would show up on some luxury liner have shirtless in his shades next to some rich person. Seriously, is the bracelet real? Ga-bling!
I’m happy he’s having fun. They invited him so might as well enjoy it to the max. Let them dote and cater to him. He’s their guest, why not?
For a breather he could just dive into he turquoise sea and float for a spell to get some peace and quiet. Think being ‘on’ like that, even being catered to, could be exhausting.
He looks super! This is his year. Well done, Gerry. (high-five)

Holysunglassesbatman @ 07/09/2011 at 3:15 pm

That’s no MYSTERY Girl, that’s Priscilla, Queen of the Desert!

cubedweller @ 07/09/2011 at 3:20 pm

It’s a Kardashian stowaway.
Long lens + drunk pap + shaky hands + cheap camera = cr@ppy photos.
Brace yourselves, peeps. He’s about to get photo’d with every dlister eurotrash starlet, model wannabe, h0rny cougar, p0rn star and hanger-on who can jetski, dogpaddle, or mail themselves to Ischia. I wouldn’t be surprised to see some nubile young lovely trying to use a portly old cigar-chomping producer as a flotation device, as she desperately tries to catch the Butler’s eye in her miniscule bikini. And she probably will It’s gonna be just like old times.

gossiphound @ 07/09/2011 at 3:23 pm

Crikey Adam Levine has a lot of ink, think I’ll take topless Butler anyday

gossiphound @ 07/09/2011 at 3:24 pm

PS People who think G is too skinny is not looking at the average rocker topless.

gossiphound @ 07/09/2011 at 3:26 pm

@cubedweller: Ischia Redux you mean cube! PSML


I’m not a fan of Adam Levine, but as far as ink goes, I generally love it. Have five tattoos myself.

cubedweller @ 07/09/2011 at 3:31 pm

@gossiphound: Adam looks good here, I think.


It’s probably why he was working on his groin area a couple of weeks ago, getting in shape… ;-p

cubedweller @ 07/09/2011 at 3:34 pm

@niknoks: It’s always important to train responsibly for a marathon.


As long as it is a marathon and not a sprint… ;-p

cubedweller @ 07/09/2011 at 3:40 pm

@niknoks: I have NEVER thought he was joking about 72 seconds.

trying to figure it out @ 07/09/2011 at 3:44 pm


Too funny. At first glance my thought was, that’s no woman.


Those glasses are something ‘special’.

The Noise In The Walls @ 07/09/2011 at 3:55 pm

Maybe that’s why Gerry turned his face..he didn’t want to laugh at her with those glasses on..Just kidding..Those glasses are “something”..

oldfurniture @ 07/09/2011 at 4:06 pm

Not only her glasses suck. Look at her bathing suit! o_O

Ha! Excellent! He’s rocking that Glaswegian Afro!

she is odd looking

How do I put this...? @ 07/09/2011 at 4:31 pm

“It’s probably why he was working on his groin area a couple of weeks ago, getting in shape… ;-p”

That was funny.
And THIS looks like NO mystery “girl (age-wise)” X-D

(That’s right. I said it.)

justsayin'too @ 07/09/2011 at 5:56 pm

enough with the “mystery girl” crap already.


JJ started it!

its funny how much better he looks on this thread than the very last, I’ve never seen someone change their looks from day-to-day

thirtysomething @ 07/09/2011 at 6:35 pm

I love Gerry to bits but really Actor of the Year? What year?

curious cat @ 07/09/2011 at 6:42 pm

We have a comedy team brewing here. Niknoks and cubie are the Abbott & Costello of JJ today. Add suz and 30-something and we have the Marx Sisters. Come in, Oy.

BUT, more pictures with a woman wearing sunglasses behind him, who may or may NOT be WITH him, or just sitting there on the same boat, or with smeone else. But she must be analyzed and evaluated now from hair folicles to tonails.

goodgravy @ 07/09/2011 at 6:46 pm

It’s Christmas in July. It’s Ischia time!

Porn stars, married ladies and half naked photos oh my…

Those old blue trunk photos… mmmmmmmm

I miss beefy Gerry :(

@curious cat:

“We have a comedy team brewing here. Niknoks and cubie are the Abbott & Costello of JJ today. Add suz and 30-something and we have the Marx Sisters. Come in, Oy.”

I must state at this point, there is a two drink minimum to read my comments… ;-p

oldbutnotdead @ 07/09/2011 at 6:56 pm

@jk: Someone told me his hair is completely gray and has been for years, so he has to keep coloring it.

He really has nice thick curly hair though, I imagine a lot of men his age are gritting their teeth….


Looking at GB’s mum, who has lovely white hair, that wouldn’t surprise me if it was true.


Speaking of going grey, just seen pictures of Rob Lowe at the Royal Polo event, what in the name of all that it holy has happened to his hair?

Fionellarumertumahumaboomer @ 07/09/2011 at 7:10 pm

She looks like another hanger-on who just happened to be in the boat he was invited into. She/he is a gay actor groupie. I bet her/his last name is Squidward with the beak she’s sporting. I wonder if we’ll get any good “ass-scratching” pics because the crabs are hoppin’ in Ischia this time of year if history repeats itself from his last Ischia appearance.

realitycheck @ 07/09/2011 at 7:16 pm

Ah yes, time to insult the women seen near GB—same old pattern.

So who is keeping score of the dance card in Ischia? Girl 1 is Area 51 Glasses girl…
Did Trojan stock just go up several points??? Little Gerry will be acting as Butler’s compass for the next few. I agree. Hang on gang.
Welcome back OF. Missed you!
@oh no!:
I so agree. He looked godawful on the last thread and unhealthy. Now he looks fab. Why??? A little tail always picked up his spirits. :)

I just saw on ET that Rob is playing 57 year old Drew Peterson…reason for grey hair.

oldbutnotdead @ 07/09/2011 at 7:33 pm


This is so rude, and pretty darned funny!!!

oldbutnotdead @ 07/09/2011 at 7:36 pm

@oh no!: yes, she is, poor thing; some of these Euro types make our nouveau riche look tasteful… :).

Doubt she is “with” him, just a woman who had an opportunity to sit and talk to him on the yacht. Maybe the wife of the yacht owner?

That picture of Gerry on last thread could be bad because of the long lens camera. It had a hard, dark look to it. This picture is light and seems better quality. I don’t know about anything else that could have made such a difference, but there definitely is. The group picture taken Thursday at the wedding, he looked smoking hawt….

@Hot Mess:

Thank the Lord for that, it really was atrocious, if it’s for a part I can forgive that.

cubedweller @ 07/09/2011 at 7:42 pm

@Manny: Doesn’t smoking damage the cardiovascular system? And therefore, sexual performance? So methinks he better get the tail while he can still do something with it.
And while we’re on the medical topic – he needs to get this thing on his forehead checked. Where the h*ll is his buddy Dr. Andy? I’m not a doctor, just a dedicated hypochondriac, so I think it looks ominous, and it’s been there a while.


It also effects fertility, not that I think that matters to GB, and at the risk of sounding gross, it also effects the taste of certain ‘things’.

cubedweller @ 07/09/2011 at 7:48 pm

@niknoks: “at the risk of sounding gross, it also effects the taste of certain ‘things’.”
Absolutely. Somebody pass Butler an extra large serving of pineapple please. :-X


My ex. said it was the best incentive I ever gave him to stay of the cigarettes. ;-p

Yup. Here is a study showing the effects of just smoking one ciggie a day.
Here is a report from the CDC. Smoking contributes to the top 4 causes of death in America.
As for the spot on his forehead, if it were on mine I would have a doc take a quick peek at it. He is fair skinned and by all appearances over the years has not taken care of his skin when in the sun. Bad combination. It could just be sun damage, but better safe than sorry in my book.

I just looked at that piccie again… Girl 1 definitely should be called Area 51.


Not sure about aliens, when I first saw those glasses this is what I thought of You can see Gerry sitting across from Ryan and appears to be his new wife.

cubedweller @ 07/09/2011 at 8:10 pm

I just looked at the new thread. Boring bad pics and populated by Leo fans.


lol, I remember that episode well…..

yeah, but that pic of Gerry is sweet…..he looks deep in thought…

Did anyone else see Dear Frankie on IFC this morning? My hubby and I were watching it and he kept asking me why the Stranger looked familiar. I told him that was the same actor in Gamer… He looked at me and said, “No Sh!t?” Made me giggle. Butler is a chameleon.


…..and is that baseball cap glued to his head, does he sleep with it? He’ll probably be buried in it.


One of my favourite GB films, would love to see him do more small indie flicks…

Since I haven’t had the pleasure of tasting a smoker’s….. anyone want to weigh in on the taste???????? Minty with a slight taste of tobacco maybe??? LMAO


you can actually taste the tobacco…. it is disgusting…

@Hot Mess:
He is probably worried because he doesn’t have a bedmate for the evening. Planning his hunt. :))

Poor Leo is there with his mother. Now that would cramp a single dude’s style. LMAO…

OMG now I’m really LMAO… Butler is staring at the guy across the table who has a woman on his lap. Jealous much Butler???

Oh Gawd….. now I’m even more disgusted with the habit. Yuck…


lol, kind of appropriate that that post was #69.

I suppose it makes no difference to the smokers themselves, they don’t have to ‘deal with it’.

cubedweller @ 07/09/2011 at 8:38 pm

@Manny: He must have left Area 51 chick on the boat.

I’m sorry to say this but I have a feeling that when ‘mystery gal’ removes her sunglasses she’ll be quite manly looking and ugly.

Maggie P.U. @ 07/09/2011 at 9:23 pm

Am I the only one who thought the lady in the “sunglasses” looked like a dude at first glance….. sorry not trying to be rude. But, nowadays you can never tell….



oldbutnotdead @ 07/09/2011 at 9:43 pm

@cubedweller: I knew there was some reason I never watched that series or saw the movies!

Grotesque dialogue and grotesque acting! Cancel my order for rice pudding please…

@Maggie P.U.:
LOL! No, you’re not the only one! :)

Are people posting here or on the other thread? The one with Leo?

oldbutnotdead @ 07/09/2011 at 9:57 pm

@niknoks: darn it! I just got a new swim suit, took it out to take a look at it, and the cute little dots on it now all look like sp….rm…

Old ladies look bad enough in swim suits, now you have gone and made it worse!…..: )


That is your subconscious…. you have a secret filthy mind buried somewhere… ;-)


I think that is more of a Leo thread than a GB one….

From the article: “The actor, who was raised in Paisley, Renfrewshire, has a history of dating his leading women.”
Well, that’s not true. And GB known for his partying? Yeah, right…

lovemesomegerry @ 07/09/2011 at 10:36 pm

I am so sad Gerry started smoking again. Not good for you, plus really ages you. He doesn’t look healthy lately.

That’s a woman? Seriously, it looks so much like a dude. Checking for a Adam’s Apple in these pics. This isn’t the first time, he’s been photographed with a manly-looking woman. I’m starting to think that may be his preference. Hope not. Couldn’t handle it. (Wow, I think that’s the first negative thing I’ve ever said about G.)

She’s wearing my kitchen wallpaper, I kid you not.

‘…And then I f/cked her… senseless.’
‘F/ck you…F/ck you…’
‘…It’s like a big f/cking Dirty Sanchez.’
‘…f/cking Chippendale.’
‘I f/cked her.’

He is such a vulgar man.

Sorry, forgot to say that my post was a reply to #84.

Only Three @ 07/09/2011 at 11:06 pm

@curious cat:
She must be with Gerry. If you look closely you can see that it’s not a large boat. There’s probably only the three of them there; Gerry, the woman and the guy behind them driving the boat.

Only Three @ 07/09/2011 at 11:14 pm

Wow, tacky bracelets. One on each arm no less! And those star earrings and rings:
*roll eyes*

justsayin'too @ 07/09/2011 at 11:21 pm

Ok I got a lot of flack for saying he was looking scrawny and unhealthy, but the article above proves I’m not the only one that sees it. Since the Barbados pictures seemed to shock him into getting in shape maybe the articles and pictures will shock him back to his senses and he will stop smoking and gain some muscle! ( a shave and hair trim wouldn’t hurt- but just my opinion) He is such a handsome man when he is buff and clean cut looking.

@Only Three:
Yup, I noticed that right away :)

OK. I’ll just come right out and admit it from the gitgo. I have become obsessed with Gerry. Old photos, new photos, videos, old movies, hopes for the new ones etc. etc. For me, he is the most handsome man I have ever seen. And it’s not just the usual gaga over his eyes, hair, lips, body, personality – of course, they all make up the man. I also think he has the most beautiful hands I’ve ever seen on a man. Down right sensual. Please tell me I’m not the only fan who has a thing for his hands! Watching Titanic the other night, I was moved when Rose said something to Jack in the old car like “Put your hands on me Jack.” Right then, I thought, “Put your hands on me Gerry.” What a dream.

Someone mentioned that G might be completely gray. I think this picture is proof of that (circa 2005)

oldbutnotdead @ 07/10/2011 at 12:36 am


……. :)

oldbutnotdead @ 07/10/2011 at 12:40 am


Her arms are very slim, more like a woman’s and she probably is just one of those women who look better in person. Not everyone photographs well. I do not think she is with G, just talking to him, she just wants to be photographed with eye candy.

He does not look interested in her.

oldbutnotdead @ 07/10/2011 at 12:43 am

@obsessed: LOL! His hands are a popular body part and do get comments; I have seen that on other sites, and in other languages. They have gotten larger, due to weight lifting, etc, I think.

oldbutnotdead @ 07/10/2011 at 12:44 am

@Anna K.: No clue what this is about….

Those glasses are Dame Edna, but they are also every woman drawn on “The Far Side”. Remember that comic? LOL

oldbutnotdead @ 07/10/2011 at 12:45 am

@Who Dat: I bet it would look great long, if he kept it gray!

But he has sausage fingers!

Welcome, obsessed. Maybe we are all a bit obsessed or we wouldn’t be posting here? Could explain the couple of thumbs down, They don’t want to admit why they are here. I like his hands, too. Not the end all, and be all, but part of the package.

I never comment about the women who sit near him but this one so looks like a man in drag….between the face and the big hands…I don’t know….and “actor of the year award”..?????…he hasn’t had a movie come out all year….but this is an Italian award so maybe one of his movies over there was out this year….

oldbutnotdead @ 07/10/2011 at 12:59 am

@Hmm….: Many women love them. I was just on another site, and they referenced his “big paws”, very lovingly….LOL.

I hate small, smooth skinned hands on a man, so nasty…men’s hands should always look like they could use a hammer and build something with them.

I am so glad others are saying the woman in the boat looks like a man. That was my first reaction, but I didn’t want to be rude. Gerry looks good as always, wish he was not so slim. Miss his big broad shoulders, they have disappeared.

@Who Dat?:
I miss his shoulders too! And his sexy thighs. They are gone as well. :(
And yes, lady looks like a dude, that’s for sure. I hope there wasn’t any ‘oh mama’ going on between her and Gerry that night, LOL.

When will Gerry ever stop hiring beard as mistery girl? It will be a waste of time.

♥ He’s ok

@CJ: Hi love, good that you had the need to comment about the woman because it’s a chance for me to say hello. how are you these days?

OMG, I remember the last time he was at the Ischia Film Festival. A woman who was there, some Italian journalist, said that GB was acting like a dog in heat LOL.

postwatcher @ 07/10/2011 at 1:20 am

He looks like an old man….body totally emaciated. Trying hard to look like a 20 something…ha ha ha jokes on him.

I wonder how different he will act this time around at Ischia. The last time he was there was before 300 came out, a few months before he even began filming 300. Now he is a real movie star.

Something’s not right with Gerry. I think he’s ill. There just seems to be something wrong.

Alexandra @ 07/10/2011 at 1:47 am

Gerard Butler is not a real movie star!! He is a gossip boy.

partycrasher @ 07/10/2011 at 1:51 am

Hey I love the cherry bathing suit with rhinestones while swigging Orangina, it screams “fu/ck me” in Italian

there is more than one way to rock the boat on board the Gerry Ferry!

What happened to his hair?
He looks like my grandma…. or Margaret Thatcher!!!

@she…I’m doing ok…hope your doing good also…

partycrasher @ 07/10/2011 at 2:01 am

hey newbiegirls maybe we should talk about the flavor of his gerry juice to get the thumbs going up,
or maybe we could rip on Gerry’s mystery girl

guess thats ok on JJ………..LMF/UCKINGAO at his fans

Boy, he owed someone a BIG favor to get fixed up with a woman whose nose is bigger than his. Perhaps she’s related (unmarried sister) to someone in the festival hierarchy?

@CJ: Doing O.K? That’s all? You deserve much more from the world. Hugs from me ♥♥♥

“Gerard Butler goes shirtless while spending time on a boat with a mystery girl”…. Mystery girl?!… more like mystery granny to me!

Blah blah you sad women.
He is greaaaat in bed that’s all that matters.

….but none of you will ever know.

that woman he is with is like his mom, please, gerard dates women who have some cache
attractive only apply. and not ones with guts like the she-beach beast from malibu.

I thought it was Bradley Cooper hahaha

angelsrcock @ 07/10/2011 at 7:02 am


LOL!! He could very well be envious, but my god he looks good in that pic.

hellotheregb @ 07/10/2011 at 10:33 am

@MEGAN: Tru’ dat!

by the way what happened to Georgia? we should be hearing from her or is that her with the classy glasses and beach jewelery?

megan probably is Georgia

hellotheregb @ 07/10/2011 at 11:34 am

ur right!

those glasses look they may be the ones Gerard wore in that skit where he wears the white suit, may he lent them to her

@Who Dat?:

I reckon she is, Georgia* can’t come back because she exposed herself as a fraud when there was some false information about GB being in South Africa when in fact he hadn’t left Malibu.

oldbutnotdead @ 07/10/2011 at 1:28 pm

Fascinating! over one hundred posts of nearly total snark! By everyone! Even posters I like.

I understand it is a gossip board, so I gather “gossip” always translate into slamming someone unknown, as well as a person just sitting and staring out to sea?

After a while, it becomes boring. Feeling self-righteous I suppose, it is Sunday here….see you later. Maybe there will be a change of subject.

oldbutnotdead @ 07/10/2011 at 1:46 pm

I lied…again… I am back with a vid just for fans. G and the paps, by Engchickie.


Have to agree, poor woman sitting within a few metres of GB and she is being completely eviscerated. I admit I commented on her ‘funny’ glasses but that’s it.


I get particularly annoyed with people who make their b!tchy comments under a different name because they’re are too much of a coward to do it under the name that everyone on here knows them by. I have made somewhat snarky comment on here, I admit, I don’t think anyone is completely innocent of that, but I least when I do it, I don’t use a different name, I have the guts to use the one everyone knows me by.


Also, the people who start their insults with “I don’t mean to be rude but….” as if that somehow makes their comments more palatable. If you don’t want to be rude and you know your comment is, then why make it? No different to people who start their comments with “I don’t mean to be rac!st but…. ” or “I don’t mean to be homophob!c but….”, you know they’re about to say something rac!st or homophob!c.

oldbutnotdead @ 07/10/2011 at 2:10 pm

@niknoks: We actually have a new thread as well! Another shot from Zimbio shows a huge wedding ring on her left hand, and on the new thread, it states he was on the boat with Pascal, the director of the festival, so I am guessing that she is his wife.

NEW Thread! Yay…try to play nice all….

so gullible @ 07/10/2011 at 2:14 pm

interesting the DiCaprio thread shows the posters attracted to his threads are not too different than here, LOL, calling Leo’s mom a butterface, gee I don’t think the GB lot has stooped that low yet.

He looks like bradley cooper with his long hair, however Bradley is better looking

@kirsty: Entitled to your opinion, of course, but Butler is much more gorgeous to me. Nothing wrong with Cooper, but no Butler, darlin….

justsayin'too @ 07/10/2011 at 3:44 pm

who dat and old but not dead- That picture from 05 showed a healthy looking GB. I like seeing him like that, I think it is his best look except with hair just a little bit longer. Salt and Pepper or totally gray wouldn’t matter as long as he looks rested and like he feels good. I am beginning to wonder if he is having some health issues myself.
It seems on every other celebrity site, they trash the women too. Clooney’s woman was always being called tranny, cokewh0re, etc… No sense in all the “mystery” because it doesn’t matter, the internet boards will always contain snarky comments. If I were one of the women involved with a famous guy I would just ignore it because I would want to spend time with the person I cared about not read a silly board. Got that Georgia!

I hope he wears sunscreen, would hate to see him get skin cancer and people should just leave him alone so he can enjoy a vacation.

@oh no!:
Whomever he is with is his business, I wish people would leave him alone so he can enjoy his vacation. I hope he has a good sunscreen on, would hate to see him get skin cancer.

I hope he can enjoy his vacation, without too much photographer interference and please my he wear sunscreen, to help prevent skin cancer.

Grapevine @ 07/10/2011 at 9:02 pm

@hellotheregb/@who dat/@niknoks@justsayin’too
That wasn’t the real Georgia* poster last weekend.Just some silly folk having a laugh at her expense.She has never spoken about GB in that way and has always said that she wouldn’t disclose any details.So I don’t think she talk like that about s/ex and what not.JMO.

RuthVaillette @ 07/10/2011 at 11:27 pm

-Trying to figure it out- Me too. That is one wierd looking rubber-faced female. But probably a host-ess. Not his…I hope. But he looks good.

She looks like a prop. And a sleazy one at that. Heck whoever staged this could have done better. She looks like a Playboy Bunny has-been prop for the paps and for gossip rags. Notice he’s nowhere else with her? Ever wonder why? Prop for paps.
