Gerard Butler: Sightseeing in Ischia!

Gerard Butler goes sightseeing on Monday (July 11) around town in Ischia, Italy.

The 41-year-old Scottish stud checked out the island, which is located in the province of Naples. Gerry is in town for the Ischia Film Festival, where he was honored with the distinction of Actor of the Year.

Gerry was joined by British-Iranian actress Nazanin Boniadi, who played Amira Ahmed in Iron Man!

Over the weekend, Gerry relaxed on a yacht with director pal Eli Roth and Sting after spending time on a boat with Leonardo DiCaprio!

    Congrats and he looks hot and all but actor of the year for which part(s)?

  • Manny

    So has he replaced his woobie (cell) with a pack of ciggies? I guess that is one way to break a cell phone habit. :(
    .
    I hope he is ringing somebody’s bell because he just ain’t ringing mine any more. RIP sexy beast.
    .
    So what did he win the award for? Posing for the paps?

  • Manny

    He won because he showed up…

    gerard have butler face

  • Oz

    He looks like a greasy lion

  • ariana

    wish he would cut his greasy hair shorter.

  • legends

    Still the most interesting actor in Hollywood! A great face; a great personality; and hopefully, an Oscar winner next year! The G-haters might find that all he needed, all along, was just a good director. And he got one in Marc Forester!

  • Manny

    Sorry phannies… as much as I want him to be my sexy beast I look at photos like this and just shake my head.

    What happened to our gorgeous man? This manorexic ghost looks more like a drug addict than Phantom. It makes me really sad.

  • Manny

    @legends:
    .
    *shaking your shoulders*
    .
    Are you serious??? His face looks like crap. He isn’t taking care of himself AT ALL. The skin damage is even more evident than before. He looks like a hunched over homeless man…
    .
    Does this p!ss off anyone else? To see him doing this to himself???
    .
    I can’t be the only one worried that he has turned a corner and is looking like he is using… seriously Gals… take a look… this is not a healthy man…

  • legends

    @Manny: He’s still sexy, though, and you know it.

  • legends

    @Manny: I look at the ‘big picture’ – he’s slim, yes; his hair is long and unruly, yes; but the core of the man is still sooooooooooo much more interesting and beautiful than all those other leading men out there. Maybe you prefer Ryan Reynolds?

  • The Noise In The Walls

    Glad he’s doing some sightseeing :)..Hope he has a great week

  • Jean

    A beautiful man and a beautiful soul. You have no idea.

  • GFW

    Love the glasses!!! Love he is using his vacation time to vacation in that visually stunning part of the world.

    Doesn’t ET have Persian project they’re working on? She had to be fascinating, and exceptional company. Good news this.

    @legends:
    .
    The second he put a ciggie back in his mouth he killed the sexy. Sorry. He may be handsome, not right now, but sexy is gone for me. Just imagine how he smells, tobacco oozing out his pores, on is breath, in his hair and clothes and don’t get me started on the tobacco stains on his hand. Yuck!

  • Mani

    Gerry needs to go home to the people who love him and allow him to rest, that’s all he needs.

  • Sunny-side-up

    We love you, Gerard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3

  • Legends

    @Manny:

    For heaven’s sake, maybe he’s incredibly stressed right now. Who knows? So what?

    Don’t you have a vice that you sometimes fall back upon when you’re stressed? He’s human. He won’t smoke forever. It’s probably a crutch for whatever is ‘ailing him’ right now.

  • Mani

    My goodness the photos on GBGals are breath taking.

  • Manny

    @Legends:
    .
    Keep telling yourself that. Oh and that he has a beautiful soul.
    .
    I’m not buying it. Been around way to long to be able to just go “oh dear he will snap out of it.”
    .
    BTW – when I’m incredibly stressed I DON’T resort to habits that jeopardize my well-being. I run and exercise. Wow what a concept to work out frustration with exercise. Butler should try it. He may get to live longer. :)

  • Legends

    @Manny: Wow, you’re perfect – how nice.

  • Manny

    @Legends:
    .
    Didn’t say I was perfect, I’m just not self-destructive.

  • Hot Mess

    I don’t think he needs to exercise anymore…with the soccer, surfing, pilates, bike riding, jogging…if he does anymore , he will weigh 100lbs……

  • Legends

    @Manny: Bull! Everyone is a little self-destructive. Think harder.

  • Manny

    @Hot Mess:
    .
    Exercise compared to ciggies… Do the math. He needs to eat well-rounded meals, quit smoking, exercise regularly not in spurts, and sleep on a regular schedule. I don’t think Butler has a clue what kind of test he is putting his body through. The dude is 41 not a kid. His body will surrender to the abuse if it continues.

  • Cnoc Mhor

    I really don’t understand much of the intense, somewhat brutal criticism of how this actor looks. He is from what I understand getting ready to play in a surfing film hence the dirty, messy blondish gray hair of a certain length. He would fit right in with the Venice, CA surfer crowd I see here at the beach every day! Being lean is something he probably needs to maintain for this same upcoming role along with having a “California” type tan…this is all likely for the job…that is what actors (myself included) do, we take anywhere from several days/weeks/months ahead of time to get physically/mentally/emotionally ready for a part…now I know folks like him looking a particular way consistently but ultimately he does what he needs to do to look right for the particular part etc. People want him to do the best job he can in the role… right? Physicality and appearance are a big part of that. As far as the smoking is concerned, I have no idea why he smokes, it is unfortunate and generally speaking I am sure he knows smoking is toxic. All I can say is as a former smoker of non filter camels…I didn’t realize just how nasty it was and I was until a year after I quit. I was extremely lucky and able to stop completely cold turkey but I know others have relapses and can’t quit completely for many years. Hopefully he will find a solid support system to help him completely quit. Anyway, my thoughts aren’t meant to inflame anyone who disagrees with me… this is just my point of view…

  • N.

    Gerry is a human being and unlike a robot he can’t just turn off the bad habit whenever he wants.

    Agree with Manny about the bad effects of smoking but smoking is hard to kick. How do we know he hasn’t been trying to stop but hasn’t been successful doing it? Too many stressors in his life right now just make it so much harder to stop.

    Too quick to jump to conclusions is a bit too simplistic don’t you think? A prime example is calling someone a cocain user just because of his long nail.

  • niknoks

    @Manny:

    I think you hit the nail on the head there, he still treats his body like he’s 25 and when you’re that young your body can pretty much cope with anything, you can’t do that in your 40′s.

  • A True Fan

    @Jean:

    Some of us do indeed know. :) He looks great and simply tired of the paps following him everywhere he goes. Maybe he’s just TIRED. Haters just can’t stand the fact that he’s a human being and not one of his characters. He’s not perfect; he’s normal, just lives an above-normal life. Love him and always will.

  • Manny

    @Legends:
    .
    Really??? That may apply to you but not me. Snark harder…

    @Cnoc Mhor:
    .
    Please… go take a look at these current photos next to photos from 3 months ago. Take a good close look at his face. He looks horrible now.

  • Hot Mess

    @Cnoc Mhor:
    Great observation…I think you are right. He is preparing for the role to start in September as a surfer. He always throws himself into a role to get ready for the character. He has been learning to surf for the last few months and is letting his hair grow out. The person he is playing is known for his blonde/white long hair. He had quit smoking for 4 years but has just recently started back. Probaby alot to do with stress, just my opinion. Thanks for your comment.

  • Manny

    @A True Fan:
    .
    God here we go again. If you “truly love him and always will” why aren’t you concerned about him? Just look at the photos above. That is not from lack of rest. We have seen Butler with lack of rest a million times before and it didn’t look half this bad.
    .
    Butler is exhibiting signs of very poor judgment. Your skin doesn’t look like that if you are hydrating properly, eating properly, resting properly. Butler has always been a man of excesses, gaining weight, losing weight, exercising like a possessed man, not exercising at all (even to push himself away from the table). The man has an addictive personality.
    .
    Saying that he is smoking because he is stressed out is just making excuses. Yes it is a hard habit to break BUT it can and was broken.
    .
    Most of my coworkers exercise, crochet, garden, etc. to vent their stress in a healthy physical way. Maybe it is because we see constantly the results of how people “work out their stress” in destructive ways that we do what we do. Why are you all giving Butler a pass??? Because he has a pretty face???
    .
    He is only a shadow of the man we were all going gaga over three months ago. He looks horrible! Put a skeleton in a suit and call that handsome? Sorry, I’m not drinking the Kool-Aid…

  • Manny

    @Hot Mess:
    .
    Excuse #37… he is preparing for a role… *shaking head*
    .
    Don’t get me wrong folks…I get on here hoping to see some great piccies of Butler which used to put me in a great mood and I see the shadow of a man I adored and was my sexy beast. I’m so damn disappointed.

  • The Noise In The Walls

    I know what Manny is saying but I also know where N. is coming from too…I was disappointed but I also know Gerry’s human…like the rest of us..I guess ..setting the smoking aside…is why I have empathy for him..He knows it’s bad….

  • Cnoc Mhor

    hey Manny…perhaps he looks worse for wear now and did not look that way 3 months ago or even 3 years ago…I don’t know anything about the day to day goings on in his life but I think that most people have periods when they look ghastly and periods when they look very well. Can you imagine having photographers taking photos of you almost every day? Would you look great everyday? I certainly would look like crap and batsh*t 5 out of 7 days a week unless I had a team of hair/make-up and wardrobe catering to my needs 24/7. Actors can also be under tremendous pressure at times(internal and external) and can also add to their current look by doing and ingesting toxic things so there are probably many variables at work here. But I still get the impression that some posters like to just lash out at his appearance because he doesn’t fit their perfect idea of how he should look at most times given his stardom, wealth, opportunity and in their view he doesn’t look like he did in such and such a movie he was in. I think he is who and what he is and better for him to be genuine about that than conform to whatever people idealize him as. I know that I can look positively beastly and gross at times depending on my work, my mood, my consumption of unhealthy food and drink, my stress level, my weight fluctuations, my relationships etc. so I feel I can’t judge… Maybe he IS in a crisis? Who can truly say?….I just think though that people change, time moves on… their looks change, their weight fluctuates, their attitude can be good one day and bad the next. He will likely look different again once this part is over and then he may transform again for the next one, who knows?… I do hope that he can take care and ease off toxic stuff if that is his problem, but I still just think a lot of his changing looks have to do more with the job and the industry (pressures and business expectations etc.) as a whole… jmo

  • The Noise In The Walls

    Some good points there Cnor Mhor..:)..I quite agree…

  • http://deleted Brooke

    @#4
    “he looks so down in the dumps ”
    Thats probably due to the fact that he split from his GF 2 weeks ago.
    If he goes back to Scotland for a few days/weeks he’ll have time to rest and sort himself out.

  • rachael

    Butler is playing Rick “Frosty” Hesson in “Mavericks”. Please show me a photo of Hesson looking manorexic. If Butler is chain smoking his way into a frail looking body for the sake of his “craft”, then show me a picture of Hesson looking rail thin and gaunt. Thanks.

  • Donnachaidh

    Manny, methinks thou doth protest too much. If you don’t like the way GJB looks, off with you! There are plenty of others who think he looks awesome and come here to salivate over his slim, toned body. BTW I’d be willing to bet he weighs approximately the same as what he did in Phantom. He was so thin back then that they had to pad his butt.

  • stacey

    JJ why are u pimping this guy every single day are you on his payrole

  • http://JustJared Aqua

    So many GB threads to choose from lately,it’s hard to keep up! I think some down time is exactly what he needs.

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

    I’m a fan and I do care about Gerry, but good grief, I can’t do a single thing about his lifestyle choices. I’m not happy that he’s smoking again, and he does look exhausted in some of the most recent photos, but all the whining and bitching about how he’s ‘unhealthy’, or he’s ‘ruining his looks’ is not going to accomplish anything. I’ve got real serious concerns about the loved ones in my own life. Can’t spare any energy worrying about a man whose looks change as quickly and drastically as his do. In a another few months he’ll change again and then people will moan and gripe that he’s too heavy, or puffed up….or “…damn, why did he cut his hair?” I think he looks tired and I wish he’d get the ‘ell away from the jet set for a few months, but it’s his life.

    I don’t know about the exact physique required for portraying Mr. Hesson but at one point Sean Penn was in talks to play that role and I for one think Sean Penn would be considered lean if not skinny by a lot of people… maybe the director is seeking a certain “type” here?…as for GB being “manorexic”, well again that is a point of view and several peoples’ I guess. I think there a lot of cons though to tossing that word around and labeling people with it. I have seen the emotional damage people have done to women calling them anorexic when they were not…it can be a dicey and dangerous thing to label people whether they are famous or not…again just my thoughts…

    @Manny:

    Trying to understand the complexity of what makes us human is not to give “passes” to poor habits. Seeing the world only as black and white dooms one to more dissapointments. I certainly don’t condone his recurring smoking episodes make no mistake.

  • Tonto

    Good Gravy, JJ is changing threads quicker than Butler can change his underwear. I agree Manny, he’s lost that zing. He needs to get his act together. Bringing the cancer sticks back will send him down hill fast. Maybe mama can kick his azz in gear. She may be the only person that could get away with knocking him upside his head. Lets hope someone can get through to him. :(

    I don’t think you can read something into every facial expression someone has. I don’t know anyone who smiles all the time. You can’t know what he is reacting to.
