Gerard Butler: Ischia Festival's Actor of the Year!

Gerard Butler proudly shows off his Actor of the Year Award during day two of the Ischia Film Festival on Monday (July 11) in Ischia, Italy.

The 41-year-old Scottish actor was honored during the Gasamicciola Gala Dinner and Award ceremony, which was also attended by Eli Roth, model Karolina Kurkova, and director Kenny Ortega.

The night before, Gerard suited up for the opening dinner of the annual film festival.

Gerard received Ischia’s Special Fashion Award, the festival’s Best New Actor accolade, in 2004 for his work on The Phantom of the Opera.

    Aww congrats Mr. Butler on your award, still not quite sure what it’s for but well done anyway.

    Looking at these pics and some others on Getty, his long pinky nail has gone. I guess between now and yesterday GB gave up his ‘coke habit’.

  • IRMA

    Congratulations with all my heart! Be happy Gerard!

  • A True Fan

    He looks wonderful and way more rested tonight than last night. Bravo Gerry! You deserve this and more.

  • Cnoc Mhor

    Congratulations Mr. Butler, may your future choices and roles only get better…perhaps this is the beginning of a rewarding awards season.

    @niknoks: Thanks Nik, I just don’t want to believe that of him. He is not stupid and he would have so much to lose.

  • niknoks

    @lolita:

    I thought it was a silly thing to suggest, like I said before there could be any reason or no reason at all for the slightly longer nail. He bites his nails for one, he may have just not got round to his pinky in that previous photo. Yet certain people automatically jump to coke use, a massive stretch and more than a little sensationalist.

    Congratulations, Gerard! Wish you to get an Oscar this year! You’re the best actor! Keep fighting!

    CONSOLATION PRIZE CUZ BUTTFUKK WAS THE ONLY TWATT THAT WOULD SHOW UP AND ACCEPT THE AWARD

  • bonerr

    whats he holding? a se/x toy?

  • Tina

    I’m so glad for him but I still don’t think he looks happy. There’s just something…I dunno. He has such a forced smile in this pic http://cdn.buzznet.com/media/jj1/2011/07/butler-ischia/gerard-butler-ischia-day-2-03.jpg. It never reaches his eyes.

  • chelsey

    Umm, who?

  • Dorothy

    He certainly looks happier in these photos.Maybe it’s because he’s now heading home to Scotland?.

  • Uncirc’ed

    Another day – another SHINY, LAM`E zoot suit.
    Who dresses him? Al Jarreau???

  • Retarted

    hhhahaah his people forced him to show up for this FARCICAL joke of an acheivement that Lindsay Lohan could have won (its a joke). He is probaby so excited to get back to LA and NY where his hoez are.
    sigh poor gerard!

  • LOLITA

    That suit doesn’t suit him but nothing law suit worthy.

  • The Noise In The Walls

    OMG!! a seahorse too!! How apropros!!
    Congrats Gerry..You deserve that award..I’m excited now in seeing Machine Gun Preacher!! Lookin Good !!…I have a good feeling about this!!

  • Burnt Bacon = Gerard Butler

    Ugh people of Irish and Welsh descent do not need to tan ever –
    They age so fast compared to other caucasoid people.
    The sun does them no favors – the women with leather skin and gross body freckles look old and rugged in the face.
    I am so happy I am Greek and naturally have coloring that tans easy if I wanted, and no I did not get ‘Greek Hips’ – I lucked out, and I’m tall too.

  • Mee

    @Dorothy:
    How do you know he’s going to Scotland? Just wondering :)

  • Seahorndog

    @The Noise In The Walls:
    Why is a seahorse ‘appropo?’
    Because the males get pregnant –
    And Gerard looks pregnant anytime he’s not working??
    ???

  • CC

    @Mee:
    That’s the thing. No one on this board actually knows anything.

  • niknoks

    @Mee:

    I believe he said he was going back to Scotland during the Dutch interview he did a couple of weeks back.

    What an adorable mess. He needs a tide detergent stick to go!. He seems to be a very messy diner. Lately always seems to have dropped his dinner on himself. I can understand not really caring if he is at the beach, or maybe not even caring at a Malibu eatery, but really…. on that nice suit. Napkin please.

  • Julie

    For ew and he don’t get it….A bit of friendly advise for the trolls, if you click on the submit button once, your post will show onetime and you ‘ll only have to make a fool of yourself once. Sometimes, reading a grammar book is a good idea, too.

  • oldbutnotdead

    @niknoks: Yes, he did say that. So the assumption was it would be right after Ischia.

  • niknoks

    Wow, my last post seems to have got lost in a sea of stupid….

  • Who Dat?

    That looks like his groomsman’s suit he wore to Ryan Kavanaugh’s wedding. Still he looks amazing.

  • FartingLoudly = Julie

    @Julie:
