Gerard Butler Jets Into JFK

Gerard Butler arrives at JFK International Airport on Thursday (July 21) in New York City.

The 41-year-old Scottish actor had been spending time in Italy, where he attended the Ischia Film Festival.

Gerry was honored at the annual event with the Actor of the Year Award but also squeezed in some time to go sightseeing around town.

Gerard has three upcoming movies, Machine Gun Preacher, Playing the Field, and Movie 43, but he’ll also soon start production on the How to Train Your Dragon sequel!

    @Manny: @Manny:

    Manny, all that I didn’t know. The way I understood the Gone with the Wind saga is that Margaret Mitchell or her estate forbade anyone to write a sequel, but the copyright expires after so many years–I should knowhow many but can’t think of it–so her heirs chose an author to write the sequel before the copyright expired, knowing somebody would do it once they had no control
    I never heard or read that she had started a sequel herself.
    Interesting.
    I found the sequel disappointing. The writer set it in Ireland, she said, because the Reconstruction American South was boring. Really? And the writer recreated all the battles between Rhett and Scarlett, never allowing them to start growing up until the very bodice ripping end. Aagggh.

    Here’s another unrelated tidbit that bothered me. Disney bought all the rights to the Winnie the Pooh stories and never gave a dime to Christopher Robin Milne, the son of author A.A. Milne, and the inspiration for the books along with his bevy of stuffed animals.
    Christopher Robin worked in a modest paying bookstore in England all his adult life, never profiting at all from his father’s work.
    I guess Disney wasn’t legally obligated if nothing was spelled out in author Milne’s will, and maybe acknowledging any rights Christopher might have would be opening the door to problems, (where are you OBND?) but if I’d been running Disney, I’d think it would be an act of morality to include Christopher Robin in a share of the riches.

    Holy moly, Cor. That’s exactly what I’d like to do right now. Pack up some sun lotion, ice water and a good book and drive clear across this island to my favorite country spot. Instead I have to stick to the grind.

  • Manny

    @curious cat:
    .
    I agree that the sequel was disappointing. Margaret Mitchell had started the sequel when she was hit and killed crossing a street in Atlanta while accompanying her husband to see a movie. Like I said I was having a grand time today learning some new things.
    .
    As far as the Winnie the Pooh, that is what I found the most confusing. There are different copyright laws in every country and on top of that here in the U.S. various state statutes too. With Phantom, it was copyrighted when written in French in the newspaper and then again in book form. When the book was translated to English the copyright didn’t encompass that. So the publishers of the English version applied and were granted the copyright on the English version of the book in 1916. The info I read today said that publishing houses could copyright for 50, 80, or 120 years and most were granted the 120 year copyright.
    .
    I found it interesting that when the 1925 movie was be produced, they actually met with Leroux about using the characters in the movie. That is where I was really thrown. If the book wasn’t protected by the French copyright law why did the movie producers approach Leroux?
    .
    Like I said, I learned a lot today and enjoyed myself.

    @Manny:

    Historical research is fascinating. I really get off (no not REALLY!) on reading about things like the per capita consumption of rice in Cochin China in 2,000 B.C. I don’t consider myself a serious historian but people who can deduce a lot about the way people lived from the records kept then, and read the old languages are amazing.
    GWTW and Pooh are much more recent.

    @Manny:

    Well, Manny….if you are not interested in me and what I’m up to, why did you start following me on Twitter? What could I possibly have to say that would make you want to follow me? Of course, I blocked you, because I don’t want you watching me. You have no interest in me, and yet you had “someone” send you what was supposedly a selection from my book? You’ve also let it slip that you keep tabs on me when you asked how my husband was doing….and then you said “see, I do keep track.” You posted that crap about the copyright issue as another personal jab to me, and now you have resorted to name calling like a mean little bully. You ignored my post where I said that I had already researched the issue. Do you think I’m stupid enough to work my butt off on a project for 6 years without doing my homework? You get over yourself.

    @Manny:

    This is hilarious, since YOU are the one who took it upon yourself to jump into a conversation that I was having with another poster. She was asking ME about the copyright issue, not YOU. But you had to butt in, looking for another opportunity to slam me. I did answer her question. I told her that I had already looked into the legalities. No I did not provide the information for her, but it can be found on the web. YOU are the one who decided to investigate, and then supposedly it was “so much fun.” You are a sicko, Manny. Getting your thrills out of holding court on a gossip site.

    Don’t pay any attention to the board bully. All of Gerry’s fans should feel free to post here without self-appointed thread monitors dictating what is acceptable fandom or not. Your posts are always respectful of Gerry and very thoughtful. You are as entitled to post here as anyone else. :)

    @silva:

    Thank you, Silva. Sadly, due to a lot of personal issues, I don’t look much like that photo anymore…but thanks for the compliment anyway. Nice to see a friendly post here on JJ. Speaking of Gerry, aside from his scowl at the paps, he looks great in these photos. I do have to confess though, that I’ll be glad when he goes back to his darker hair color. I think he looks handsome with the lighter hair too, but I kind of miss the dark brown. Wonder what he will look like the next time he’s photographed? It’s always fun to see!

    @Swansong/Paisley:
    I think he looks great in these pictures, too!
    I thought he didn’t look well when he was in Ischia. I was worried about him. I thought something was wrong. But what a difference a week makes! lol
    Some R&R in Switzerland and Scotland and he looks fit as a fiddle and ready for mischief! lol
    Even after a transatlantic flight, he’s looking great. :)
    I like his hair dark, too. I think he’s using the sandy color to transition to Frosty’s, so it’s probably temporary. :)

    @silva:

    Silve, in my early years of GB fandom, I used to freak out a lot too by his sometimes drastically changing appearance. You’d see him in one set of photos and he would look amazing, and then the very next day there would be new ones where he would look awful. Now I just take it in stride. The man’s looks are very changeable…so you never know what you are going to get. It’s interesting that while some of the people here enjoy slagging his looks, people who meet him in person always say that photos do not do him justice, and that he’s much more handsome in person. I found that to be true as well.

    When I met Gerry I thought he was so handsome I let him feel me up. He was initially too shy to feel me up but I knew that was what he wanted so I grabbed his hands and rubbed them all over my bossoms and my derriere. It must have got him very excited because he looked almost stunned with his mouth hanging open and unable to speak. I really turned him on.

    Now I write fanfic about things I know Gerry would like to do to me but Gerry is really the Phantom and I am really his Christine. I sometimes make my husband put on a phantom mask and speak with a scottish accent when we are “doing it”. I know he likes it too.

    What else would you like to know about me? I have several cats.

    Bwaaaahahahahaha, my post got 6 thumbs down! Oh thats so funny. Guess no-one shares my dream of a short dark-haired, cigarette free Gerry. Mmmm, those were the days. Hey people, I’m allowed to have my own Gerry preferences!!!
    Oh and those “FB” posts were so funny. Made my day.
    On a more serious note, am thinking of everyone in Norway tonight…what a terrible thing that will affect the entire nation. I really feel for the families of the victims.

    @Mellifera: Good morning Melli, with all the heartache you have witnessed the last year, I now how the pain the Norwegian people are facing is effecting you. Your pain was an act of GOD. What on earth can possess a human to do such horrible acts. How can so much hate be in a person. It is so sad to know that people place no value on human life anymore.

  • so gullible

    Sorry niknoks I don’t feel sorry for the model chick. It was pointed out to me that she has two Facebooks, one for modelling and one for family and friends, the former said nothing about Gerry and the latter had been private when her mother was announcing the whole story to the world on the mother’s public facebook. But then about a few hours later lo and behold, model chick made her other Facebook public so we could all see her posts and comments about her new “friend”. Someone was looking for attention and she got it. I’d feel more sorry for Gerry and the fact he can’t have a conversation with anyone it seems without someone posting in on twitter or Facebook publicly. Then again those people are not too bright if they can’t fathom the notion that if you meet someone famous and you want a shot at a shag or a friendship or find some way to use Gerry to your advantage as so many of his so-called actual friends do if you ask me, keeping your mouth shut is Rule #1.

    @so gullible:
    Thumbs up for you! Very well said.

  • niknoks

    @so gullible:

    I see what you’re saying and I partly agree with it, there are some people who are genuinely excited at meeting a star and post on social networking sites and there are some who are blatantly looking for attention but my issues isn’t with either of them, it’s with the people who feel the need to know everything about someone who has come into contact with GB and start stalking personal facebook and twitter sites for every bit of information they can get their hands on regarding this person. That’s what I find weird.
    -
    There are fans and then there are fanatics and to me, facebook/twitter stalkers fall into the latter.

    Youtube has a video of Gerry called Coriolanus, put to music by Queen’s song Amazing. It has the stills of the movie put to that music. It is very good. I am sorry I do not know how to post it here. Maybe someone who is more tech savy can.

  • Fabk

    @Well: In what respect? That he is as emotionally and intellectually deep as a puddle (and don’t quote the law degree – it proves nothing) or that they are due to meet, or his conveyor-belt approach to the fairer sex? Note he never suggests a movie, a meal, a walk – we’ll party! He is procuring for his friend’s night club as well as himself.

    @Manny:

    I’m a huge Gone With The Wind fan and as far as I know, Margaret Mitchell never started a sequel to it ever. I would like to know your source of info on that, however.

    The only legitmate sequel that was ever permitted by her estate was “Scarlett” and it was a terrible disappointment to her legacy.

    I saw it on a clearance table at a book store for $3, picked it up and read a few pages and put it back down. It wasn’t worth the time, let alone the three bucks.

    .
    As for the conversation with CorBlimey – I didn’t insert myself into your conversation because that conversation was over. The reason I even said or did anything is because CorBlimey asked for a sincere response and in your self absorbed world you got defensive and never answered her question. Gee I don’t see CorBlimey thanking you for information…. Oh that’s right, you never gave any.
    .
    As for all your other blather, pfffffffffft…. I DON’T HAVE TO LOOK FOR A THING ABOUT YOU. I don’t think you have a clue how many of your GALS pals you have offended. Why do I say that? Well you should have a look at my email. They send me gems about you all the time. You haven’t got a clue what a laughingstock you have become in your little Gerry Universe do you??? Poor thing… I actually feel sorry for you. You have no idea how many are so willing to diss you…
    .
    They also have voiced how disgusted they were with you pursuing your Gerry fantasy while your hubby was so sick. THAT is how I knew your hubby had been sick. From your self important attitude here I can clearly see why those bridges have been burned and how easily your fellow GALS are to sell you out. Who knows their reasons, I just find it hilarious that they think I’m amused by it and most times I am because it is like watching mothers who eat their young… kind of ghastly and amazing at the lack of loyalty… Every time I post my email my box fills up. Just like it did a few days ago. I guess because I think your sh!t stinks they want to share…. who knows….

    .
    At least you were smarter than I was Eve because I read the whole thing in my teens. It was so unmemorable I can’t even remember how it ended. What an impression huh? I read the thing about the Mitchell estate on one of the many creative property rights links I visited yesterday. I counted and there are close to 70 links I visited in my history and it would take some time to find it again. I’m not willing to put in the time again. Sorry. Maybe a google search of Margaret Mitchell creative property rights would lead you to it.
    .
    After I read that I looked up Margaret Mitchell on wikipedia and read the whole biography there. Since wikipedia may not be fact I was hoping to find a better source on Mitchell. She was a fascinating woman. I never knew she was a newspaper woman. Now you can help me if you will since you are a fan of her, I would love to read a good biography about her. Have you read any? Autobiographies and biographies are my favorite reads because I find real life is truly stranger than fiction. Would really be interested if you could give me some guidance. Cheers!

    Lovely to see your true colors finally come out. Again, you show an unbalanced interest in me by emailing back and forth with GALS who you say hate my guts. Have you become the ring leader of the hate Swannie club? I wonder how you got in contact with all these GALS who supposedly tell you all their little secrets about me. I’m sure that my old friend Pilar, aka Fritz is among them….or wait, are you Pilar? You are full of sh*t, Manny. I have many friends on GALS who know me for who I am. I have known some of them for 7 years and have maintained those friendships. Gerry Butler fandom was a great escape for me when my son was critically ill in 04-07. I have no shame in seeking a distraction during that horrendous time. As for my husband’s illness….anyone who thinks I have been neglecting my husband has NO IDEA what you are talking about. I guess you are getting desperate now, Manny….because you are making this very personal. In these last few posts you have exposed yourself for the spite little bully you really are.

    @Paisley Swansong – I don’t read that kind of crap but – ignore Manny. She has an unfair advantage because she can hide her fat a** behind a computer screen while you are exposed for the world. She has that advantage to talk sh*t and generally be a true a**hole because she has ANONYMITY. You do not. Ignore her unless she herself is willing to admit her own identity. Until then, tell her to p*ss off. She is just another message board troll.
