Gerard Butler Jets Into JFK

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!

    I actually admire Prince Baldy…he could have gone for looks and/or body…but he went for a homely, thin-lipped chick. That says a lot about his character. Pippa looks a right 40.

    @Midsummer’s Eve:

    We don’t always agree but I’m with you that” Scarlett” was a disappointment. Shooting off to Ireland was a strange move. I must not have bought the book (thank goodness!) but borrowed it from the library, since it’s not on my shelves.

    What makes GWTW a great novel, in a lot of reviewers’ opinions, is that it reflects so well the turmoil of the American Civil War. Afterwards the southern states had to rebuild not only their homes and infrastructure but their whole economic system, since it had been based on having free labor from slaves. In GWTW Scarlett was always shown to be a survivor and a fighter. Seems it could have been a better and even important novel if it had shown her involved in the Reconstruction. Years ago I read some interesting material about the outfall when the slaves were freed. Some plantation owners begged their slaves to stay on in a free capacity because they couldn’t rebuild without their help. And some did. But some left and went north because they coudln’t stand to be reminded of their slave days.

    Mitchell may well have started a sequel as Manny says. Never saw that anywhere but it doesn’t mean it’s not true. I have read that the characters of Scarlett and Melanie were both based on herself, her conflicts because she was a rebel who couldn’t seem to conform to the image of the proper Southern lady. And that the characters of Ashley Wilkes and Rhette Butler were based on her two husbands.

    I don’t email them back… Not even that interested. Now I’m seeing how truly sad this whole situation is for you. It is your world they are exposing….. I wonder if I’m the only one they email… you should really check who your real friends are.
    .
    I posted my email for Maggie here a couple of days ago and the emails came in, all 23 of them. You really have no idea do you???
    .
    What is sad is that you think there is just one or two….
    .
    Too bad these “ladies” don’t have the balls to just tell you to your face or email you. I guess because I have shown my exasperation and dislike of you they email me hoping I will out you. Who knows. You are all a bunch of nutters IMO.
    .
    Tell you what, why don’t we see how brave these backstabbers in your life are…. If any of you GALS email me again I will post your email address here on JJ…

    You really need to watch your back. I’m sincerely sorry for you. Good luck…

    @205…Manny I am so sorry… I did not mean to put you in a rut….. had I known that would happen I’d have asked JJ to do a relay (if he would/could). Again, sorry.

    Maggie, no problem. You asked and I was glad to give it to you. There is always residual crap that comes with doing that. It has happened before and it happened again. No Big. So not your fault.

    These women have some real problems. The more I think about it the more diabolical they seem. Maybe they are jealous of Swannie… who knows… It does make for some funny reading though…

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @Try, I read over at the WO because those ladies find so much news about Gerry. I don’t have a twitter or fb account. I would think Kelly Bensimon wouldn’t have twittered it if it wasn’t true. She was very interested in Gerry at one point at some function last year in the Hamptons, but he didn’t take her up on it, and if that story is true, I don’t know.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @from WO: Thanks for posting the links.

  • Try sitting ina office allday

    @lolita: cool, i will check it out. WO seems to be the place to get all the info and photos.
    This site seems to be hit & miss, some strange posts- very disturbing.
    How is the weather in your part of the world? its is freezing cold & rainy in Melbourne.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @Try sitting ina office allday: Try, it is so hot here you could fry an egg on the concrete. I went outside for a while but had to come back in, my skin felt like it was on fire. It reached 95deg. yesterday here in Buffalo, NY. Right now it is 84 deg but it doesn’t feel any cooler because it is so muggy. We are supposed to get some thunderstorms but we really need the rain. Sorry your freezing, wish I could send you some of this heat. The last couple of years our summers have been getting so much hotter. I guess there is something with global warming.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @Try, The ladies at WO are very colorful but they are not mean to each other and they do find news and pics of Gerry. I like to visit there to get the updates on him. I will probably be put down because I admitted that but i don’t care.

  • Try sitting ina office allday

    @lolita: I can’t wait for summer. yeah, I wish i could send some of this cold weather your way. I always want the opposite of what i have- cold & i want hot and when its hot i want cold.

    I am going to check out WO . I usually check out JJ whilst i am at work- mainly its like a stress break from the madness of work but sometimes the posts are very aggressive & mean that i don’t bother for a few days/weeks. I never understand why haters post or even follow GB ? if they don’t like him – don’t follow his career – simple.

    Hopefully, the next few months will bring some GB interviews and interesting news about his coming projects.

    Enjoy your night..hot in city night.

    @lolita:

    You are perfectly entitled to visit whatever web sites you choose with no apologies. Nobody sensible here would fault you for it. We could do with less meanness here! I am not familiar with WO. JJ is the only site that concerns GB that I’ve ever posted on.

    Unfortunately it can become addictive, or at least a habit. Some of us have been reading and posting here for several years and feel as if we sort of know each other even though we’ve never met in real life. And people do come and go. Sometimes it seems like a congenial place to hang out off and on. and discuss stuff Gerry-related or not.

    That’s until people start throwing punches at each other. Occasionally I get irritated enough to throw one when I am attacked or someone else is whom I don’t think deserves it, but good golly Miss Molly, we should all be mature enough to refrain from childish name calling and wild accusations.

    You can disagree with others without attacking personally. Since we don’t know each other in RL, there is no reason to accuse others of being fat, stupid, a certified nut case, too ugly to get a date, bitter about some rejection by Mr. Butler or anything else. A few posters do seem a bit far out of the middle lane but so what? Ignore.

    OK, if you read this and think, oh that “pompous idiot” again, you could have skipped the post. :) I hope your weekend continues free of strife, trouble and muggy weather.

    @WO

    Thanks for the link. So some of GB’s family are visiting the US?

  • curious cat

    I meant @FROM WO

    And the “pompus idiot” comment wasn’t directed at lolita, but the general board here. :)

    I really do feel sorry about Winehouse. Not to mention all the Norwegians including children killed. And for whatever tragedy comes up in the next 24 hours. One story on Winehouse mentioned a number of young talents who were wiped out, largely by drug addiction, Janis Joplin among them. To see a young life snuffed out is especially sad.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @Try sitting ina office allday: Try take care and great talking to you. When you check out WO, you can make up your mind about the site. I agree, if they dislike him so much why bother.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @curious cat: Cat, I read your posts all the time I never skip them. I only post here and I have posted at Paisley site but no where else. I read other sites but I usually come back to JJ if it does not get to raucus. I know what you mean by biting back at some. It is hard to hold your peace when you see such nastiness out there. I always wonder how some people get so negative. I wouldn’t have wished the first half of my life on my worst enemy, but I refuse to let them break me and make me hard hearted. I don’t always accomplish it but I try. God has blessed me in many ways and I am grateful that he made me such a strong willed person to handle life.

    @Try sitting ina office allday:

    I didn’t know you live in ‘Straya! I lived in Sydney for several years, had relatives by in-law in Melbourne, now dead or scattered from France to Tasmania.

    Perhaps I shouldn’t assume? There is more than one Melbourne. But since you mentioned winter, I assumed you aren’t in Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Arkansas, Missouri, Washington, USA, or Ontario Canada. :)

    But was there an original Melbourne in Britain? Sorry, I didn’t stop to look it up before I started posting.

    Couple of years back there was a poster on these threads who said s/he (I assume she usually) lived in Paris, France but was originally from Houston. I naively asked, how did you get from Texas to Paris? She posted back no, Houston, Scotland.

    I blushed red. Good golly Miss Molly. How provincial of me. All names in north America except Native American names came from other places, mostly European. Yes, we have roll off the tongue Massachusetts, Chattanooga Tennessee, Appalachicola, Tallahassee, Ticonderoga, etc. etc. Australia has Woolongong (sp?), Walla Walla on the Murumbidgee (sp?) etc. And also Perth.

  • curious cat

    @lolita:

    Thank you, Lolita. I appreciate being read without rancor.
    The first half of your life sounds fascinating.
    Being a journo I am used to my share of slings and arrows over articles published under my real name (as well as praise and favorable response). It’s just part of freedom of speech.
    I find the kinds of personal attacks I mentioned annoying as h**
    Example, totally unrelated to this site. A former colleague, a journalist who has his own blog now, wrote an article on line about a program offered by a major retailer that he didn’t think lived up to its promises.
    He wrote about it honestly.
    Some dimwit poster wrote a wimpy drively comment roughly like this:

    “You must be an unhappy, insecure, pathetic person. You should count your blessings instead of being so negative.”

    This kind of stupid cr** burns my jets. He is a journalist holding a big company’s feet to the fire because it wasn’t living up to its self-proclaimed commitment to customers.

    GB isn’t a big retailer, but he is a movie star who in some way is a public figure getting a lot of money from people with promises to deliver, in his case FILMS. Now whether he should be delivering commercially viable films or award worthy films is a matter of choice. He alone can decide what kind of impact he wants to make.

    But just because people criticize him on these boards doesn’t mean they HATe him. They just have frank opinions about his performances and choices. They don’t want to post on fan sites that screen comments and don’t allow anything critical of him to appear.

  • Mellifera

    Wow, Amy Winehouse dead. Not unexpected but somehow still shocking. I just hate seeing young people go in circumstances such as this.
    Lolita: I thought your post about WO was good, yes maybe they can be a little loopy and their site is not really my cup of tea but you are right that there seems to be a lot less bitchiness there. I guess its because WO is focussed on Gerry while JJ is more about lots of different celebs so it attracts different people with different views!
    Manny: Its nice to be ‘back’…nice to have the spare time finally to indulge in a little internet folly!

  • CorBlimey

    Absolutely off topic, but I just wanted to send out a humungous congratulations to Cadel Evans, the first Australian to ever win the Tour de France. Bl00dy brilliant ride, mate! :D
    .
    @Mellifera:
    Melli, how’s Christchurch recovering and the rebuilding efforts going? We don’t get much on the news at the moment here in Oz – it’s mostly the pollies arguing about the carbon tax, unfortunately. Good to see that your life seems to have returned, at least a wee bit, to normal. :D

  • Mellifera

    @CorBlimey: omg CorB, where do I start about Christchurch? Its hard to know. The centre of town is still pretty much stuffed but its going to take such a long time to even clear and demolish all the damaged buildings so its going to be at least 2 years before town can even be opened up again for rebuilding. Take for example the multi-story Hotel Grand Chancellor which is currently on a lean, its going to take 18 months just to demolish it! I can’t understand why, I’d just go in with a wrecking ball and get rid of everything, but I don’t know I guess they have some sort of salvage plan and are trying to get the most out of it economically. With regards to the people here, we’re one of the 5000 houses in areas with so much land damage that they’re being written off (the government is offering a buy-out option thats tied in with the insurance companies). We were lucky enough to be quick off the mark and go buy another undamaged house in a ‘green zone’ (ie no damage to the land), so we can move in there while we wait for the government stuff to come through (that may take another couple of months though). I feel sorry for the people who are not in a position to do what we have done – we had no mortgage so were financially able to take out a short-term mortgage on the new place. There are people struggling financially so I realise how truly lucky we are.
    Btw sorry everyone else who really doesn’t want to read about Christchurch and earthquake aftermath – but I wanted to reply to CorBlimey’s question :-)

  • CorBlimey

    @Mellifera:
    I was thinking about CC the other day – I guess they’d have to move the centre of the city to a new location, because I daresay, as you said, the land would be unsuitable for buildings to be rebuilt on it. The whole city will then change it’s structure. Wow – recreating a city in this day and age. What an undertaking!
    .
    I’m so happy that you have a home, though you are right that those in less stable financial situations will be struggling for a good while to come. It’s going to be really difficult to find new homes for 5000-odd families – I guess a few will have to move out of the city? Speaking of which, has any of this driven people out of CC? Though I guess you are all aware that this kind of thing is a possibility if you live there, it would still have to shake you up and ask some questions, I guess.
    .
    .
    And though I am unapologetic about discussing something other than Gerard on this board (unlike most people, I keep coming back for the social aspect with many of the posters here, since I live in a remote location – oh, and the pictures of Gerard!), I will attempt to make the end of this post “relevant”…

    @curious cat: Hi, you correctly assumed. Melbourne – Australia. very cold & rainy at the moment.

  • RIP Manny

    Who hurt you in a previous life Manny for you to get such enjoyment out of being nasty and vindictive?. Be brave and reveal yourself. Be the bigger person – if you can slag people off and make it so personal then do it as the real you. Saddest thing is probably the real you is a nice person – you’re a nurse so it’s in your nature to help and be kind. It’s such a shame your alter ego is a psychotic biatch.

  • curious cat

    @Who Dat?:

    Unreal! Unbelievable! At first glance I thought you were joking, because you can’t see either of the people’s faces. They could be anybody. But when I looked at the caption, although I can’t understand the language, the name “aktor Gerard Butler” was clear enough. OMG!
    I guess it’s not that unbelievable considering other stories about him, including that video in which he pulled his pants down and had pictures on his a#@ on the set of Gamer.

    Melli, thanks for sharing this. We’ve been worrying about you. You got hit not once, not twice, but three times, majorly. I’m glad you finally moved into another home.

    @Who Dat?:

    Again, I can’t get over those pictures. They go back a few years and I’d never seen them. It’s hard to believe there is anything we haven’t seen of Mr. Butler. That is SO bizarre. That woman standing on her head and him with his face in her b***. In public, it seems. It’s the kind of thing you think HAS to be fake.

  • curious cat

    I should practice more shutupmanship but can’t help continuing the dialog started by Lolita and I think NikNoks.
    We are all anonymous here and there is no reason to reveal who we are, but I feel it’s nice when I have an idea 1) where posters live in the world and 2) their occupation. Then you at least have a sense of where this person is coming from, literally and figuratively.
    And what particular knowledge they might bring to the board.
    I’ve written newsaper and magazine articles on too many topics to remember and have had my share of phone calls from irate readers who said, you don’t know what the h*** you’re talking about, here’s the real story.

    I had colleagues who would say, I hope you told them to ***** off. I said no, I listen to everyone. Sometimes they are angry, sometimes their complaints aren’t justified, sometimes they are. I got some of my best stories because someone told me you overlooked this, you missed that, you wre wrong, you were sold a bill of goods.’

    The Internet can provide an exciting exchange of information. It’s creating revolutions. But it creates an increasing need to sift the wheat from the chaff. Anyone can publsih anything now.

  • Mellifera

    Waaaahhhh, those pictures!! Goodness me. Now, I was one of the people who didn’t think the Aniston/finger pictures were a big deal, because as I said at the time if one of my good guy friends did that to me I would have a laugh with him about it. But biting my…’hoo-hah area’??? OK, would have to give him a slap for that.
    Now for something completely irrelevant – its snowing here!!! And just a week ago I was walking on the beach wearing a short sleeved t-shirt.
    PS @CorBlimey: loved the comment making your post relevant to Gerry, lol

  • justsayin’too

    Melli and Curious Cat- I thought the pictures were a joke at first, but in the second one Alan is watching so I KNOW it’s him. Joke or not it kind of grossed me out. If he does that in public I don’t EVEN want to know what goes on in private. Makes me think he must have a really kinky sexual life. People that say they “know stuff” have always talked about how oral GB is and after that picture, I have to concede they really must “know stuff” Of course this is JMHO- LOL

    Good Morning ladies, Gerry is a never ending shock to the system. I think she is the one who taught him everything he knows about sex. Isn’t she the one who got him banned from Ischia because of the affair. He must be one wild ride in bed. Enough of that.
    Melli, I saw some new pictures of the center of town and they still look like a bomb blast hit. That beautiful church in ruins.
    Corblimey you are a nut, love your crazy sense of humor.

    Thanks WhoDat for sharing the pics of Mr Smooth in action.
    Have a wonderful Sunday to all.

    @lolita: Well if she taught him all about sex and perhaps was responsible for any ‘oral’ abilities G may have (as Justsayin’too mentioned), can she please hold a few masterclasses for men in general, that would be great, lol

  • dargabriel

    Yesturday’s gone today is here and tomorrow isn’t here yet. It seems to be, everyone on here dwells on the past, its a waste of time. Most of these past photos of butler were an act, not his true self, he is a jester. Let go of the past and look at him today. My how he’s changed and become more spiritual. Has anyone seen him with a poo poo cig lately? Anyways, there is much speculation and mystery on who lies under the many masks of butler. I’ve noticed in ways he’s qute predictable, however in many ways nobdy really knows him behind the scenes, throught he soul divinity.it occured to me maybe some ppl on this site get bored and need new/old stuff to remind us all about who and what we think GB really is. I can say, he is very intelligent and keeps everyone thinking on purpose, he loves the attention. Also again he’s not feeling to well, due to learning Gabriel’s lessons about taking better care of the body, NO SMOKES BUTLER, or sickness will previal and kick you on your very skinny ass. He better listen, he isn’t. In control, spiritual father is. Is it necessary for ppl on here to pick on each other? Do you feel yourselves aging each time this happens? It’s very disturbing and disruptive. Be mindful. Love,dargabriel
