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!

    Have to say those photos don’t bother me at all, nothing wrong with a bit horseplay as long as everyone’s consenting. It just strikes me as two fully clothed people messing around. I got up to worse with pals when we were working behind a bar. ;-p

    Even back in 2005, I could never figure out what was going on with Gerry and the married lady, Eleanora. In a few pictures, he is sitting on a lounger reading by the pool and she walks up, looks like she maybe introduces herself to him, they shake hands and talk for awhile. Next day, there were photos of him pulling her down on a lounger with him and pics of him with his face in her crotch. Weird, if it seems they just met the day before.

    Not bothered by the other photos of him and the lady I shall now refer to as ‘crotch woman’ but that gold shiny suit is downright offensive. ;-)

    I used to be active in musical theater and when I first got involved with a local acting troupe, I was shocked by some of the sexually public horsing around that went on with the cast. Went to one party where the female choreographer gave one of the leading actors a chest massage. When she was finished she asked him to do the same for her, so she laid down on the floor, he put his hands under her t-shirt (she was not wearing a bra) and he gave her a massage, bre*sts and all. There were at least 30 other people in the room chatting away while this was going on. I realized then at 19 years of age that there was a whole crazy world out there where people had very different personal boundaries than mine. When I saw those photos years ago after they first came out, I was shocked that Gerry would do such a thing, but even more shocked that people were just sitting around watching like it was no big deal. Definitely not within my comfort zone.

    @lolita:

    Mr. Smooth! Big laugh of the day, Lolita! LOL One thing he definitely isn’t. I just don’t get it. Have those pix been floating around all this time? And we only see them NOW?

    He himself revealed the camel feffing pix. I thought, this guy is crazy. It was right after his big success in 300. Someone interviewing asked him what he was doing next. Butler was on the cusp of fame suddenly and it was so sudden and unexpected he evidently had nothing else lined up. But there are those times when a smart person plays it cool and close to the chest. “I’m reading some scripts and in discussions on a few projects I can’t talk about just yet!” Etc. Even if it’s BS.

    Hey, anybody can be reading scripts and discussing projects. That’s no lie. I do it all the time. ::)

    But this Butler person starts blurting and blabbing that he had nothing lined up, he needed a job, he’d do anything, he even feffed a camel in one film. He then backtracked that of course he didn’t REALLY feff the camel, it was just faked for the movie. And I thought, what is wrong with this guy?

    He sounded like a desperate unemployed wannabe actor begging for scut work when he had just hit the jackpot, won the lottery, unearthed the gold mine.

    And I thought, uh huh, that camel feffing scene is going to show up on YouTube any minute now and it did. To me it’s not offensive, since the story about a British soldier going mad in the desert is pretty clear. And his character gets kicked to death by the violated camel. More than some of these women did for sure. :)

    This is beyond belief.

    But when you have just moved into the big money do you feature something like that from your past student work for all the world to see?

  • Midsummer’s’ Eve

    I wasn’t around Gerry in 2005 but it seems to me he’s just a playful guy and he gets away with it because he’s so charming and cute! I can see perhaps where she is showing off her head stand and told Gerry, “bite my butt, Butler”. And good thing it wasn’t me he did that too. I’m pretty good at summing up farts on command! LMFAO!

    I see Alan sitting there looking on too and I’m thinking poor Alan has probably heard and seen it all living around that guy! He should do a book on his life with GB. It would be a best seller! LOL!

    **

    Manny, you need to lighten up on people! You’re going from bully to destroyer mode. It’s one thing to throw snarky punches at people in jest that know you but it’s another thing to berate people with petty name calling and character assassination. Why are you so bent on beating some people up on this site and so hateful towards people unless they share you views? What has Swansong done to you that you want to hurt her so bad?

    I serously doubt anyone that is her “friend” emailed you. You sound like the jealous little girl on the playground who runs up and yells, “nobody likes you, nah, ne, nah, ne, boo boo!” Do you not see that? You need to do some serious growing up and that’s not just MY opinion, it’s the truth! You are smart and articulate but you’re ruining it with this thing you have about being verbally abusive!

    And my behavior to fight you back when you attacked me was just stooping to that level and did not work. That’s not who I am.

    I don’t know Swannie personally but have seen her here and around gals and she seems like a nice person and she bears out her heart, it seems, about her life and family and loves to write. She’s trusting, which is a lot more then I am, especially after being around this site for a while. Why do you want to destroy her so badly?

    You need to back off of people and let them do their own thing without feeling like you are the opinion police and have to pick them apart. No one is laughing at it and if they are, that’s sad for them.

    I think you believe controlling this site and “running” it the way you want to is some kind of goal to aspire too. Then bragging about chasing people off or “outing them” is some kind of badge of glory! Outing what? Who’s hurting you?

    There is absolutely no need for all the hostility and vitriol and I will guarantee you, by the obvious thumbs down you are getting when you do that kind of thing, a lot of people feel the same and some of them are probably who you think are YOUR friends too. They’re not going to say anything to your “face” because it’s not their way and they want to just keep the peace and just hope it peters out.

    Now, come after me again. I don’t care. You have to know that every time you do, it just re-inforces what kind of person you are to everyone. I enjoy intelligent debate, even a bit of heated argument, but when it gets personal with name calling, berating family members and friends, etc., that’s where the line has to be drawn. Lecture over.

    @niknoks:

    We did some real goofy things when we were a bit younger with some friends. OMG. I just had a memory of an interesting evening at the beach with 3 other couples. Oh my! I’m blushing.

  • Midsummer’s’ Eve

    I tend to be a bit more conservative when it comes to my own personal space. If it’s someone I know well and care about, I’m more open to horse play as long as it’s not demeaning. I tend to hate being around people that are so anal retentive that when they see something like that, they express their disgust and get all pizzy. No one is getting hurt if it’s among friends.

    But if even GB took liberties and got a little too “familiar” with me on a first meeting, I’d definately be put off by it, even with him! There’s a fine line between playfulness and disrespect too, especially when it’s out in full view of other people.

  • Midsummer’s’ Eve

    Actually, I thought that girl was with Gerry! So she’s married to someone else? All this time I thought she was a GF.

  • nyob

    What mid-30s man acts like this? Not to mention the likely 40+ woman. I would expect this from a drunk early 20 something. I always thought he was really gay, but I guess he really is just an immature manwhore. I would be shocked if he does not have an STD. No wonder his conquests don’t go public – they would be labeled as damaged goods for sleeping with this nastiness.

    He looks hot in these pics though.

  • Who Dat?

    I think he is probably a very different guy today than he was in 2005, at least in public. I noticed there weren’t nearly as many photos come out of this years Ischia Festival as in the past.

  • Midsummer’s’ Eve

    @Ugly, Man-Faced Kate Middleton:

    I think Kate is quite pretty, as was Diana. I miss her. But I think it’s sort of tradition within the Royal family to find good baby makers from good stock, with good genes. They produce rulers, afterall. It’s a plus to be in love, but I think some of the Royal men have other ideas and the women always seem to be more in love. I hope it works out for them both. I’m sure no matter who they bring home, the Queen still has to give her approval. Just the way it is.

  • niknoks

    @Midsummer’s’ Eve:

    I like Kate, couldn’t stand Diana, can’t stand any woman that plays the doe-eyed victim and there was no better at that than her.
    -
    I think William has married his one and only true love, where as Charles had to settle for someone of ‘proper stock’, that’s how he got stuck with Diana.

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

    @Midsummer’s’ Eve:

    Thank you, Eve. Ordinarily I am not someone who enjoys confrontation or conflict. I don’t mind disagreements and difference of opinion, but when someone uses very personal and hurtful family situations as an internet attack on my person, I cannot sit by quietly and let it happen without a fight. It’s too easy for people to sit anonymously behind their computer screens and use words to hurt someone they don’t even know, just for the h*ll of it.

  • dmp

    Those pics just looked like they were all in good fun . . . perhaps a little overly familiar lol but maybe they just became fast friends. Hey, at least they are fully clothed . . . it’s not like she’s wearing a g-string lol. You can usually sense if someone is playful or uptight . . . besides, it looks like they are on vacation and people tend to be a bit more inhibited when they are partying. I agree with the person who mentioned that if this is how GB acts in public what is he like in private lol.

  • trying to figure it out

    @niknoks
    I’m in your corner on the Kate/Diana issue. I’ve been lambasted many a time for saying negative things about Diana. She sure played the victim to a hilt; I personally think that behind closed door she was a nightmare to live with. I’m not condoning Chuck’s behaviour either, however, I think he should have found his b*alls and said he didn’t want to marry her.

  • Lord

    You fannies will justify anything when it comes to this man. He has his faced shoved in the crotch of a married woman in full view of the pool crowd. Do not excuse this as his “playfulness” or “scottishness.”

    Is it the end of the world? No. Is it the worst thing he could have possibly done? No. But it is inappropriate, no matter how you slice it.

  • niknoks

    @trying to figure it out:

    I don’t defend Charles’ infidelity but at least his was with the woman he loved, but Diana making herself out to be a ‘poor little victim’ with her “There were three of us in this marriage….” BS drove me up the wall. What a hypocrite, she had a lot of lovers, one that caused a massive paternity scandal over Prince Harry, another the married England Rugby Captain Will Carling whose marriage she helped wreck, why did she not count them, why was it only Charles’ infidelity that counted?
    -
    Then there was her constant whinging about media intrusion, this would have invoked some sympathy from me had she not have courted the media to the extent she did. She whined about them following her everywhere, when both she and her aides were tipping the media off to the charitable events that she wanted kept oh-so private. There were even pictures of her in back alleys and country lanes meeting with Royal correspondents from various newspapers, to give them stories. The woman was a serial manipulator and incredibly media savvy, she knew exactly what she wanted, how she wanted herself portrayed and knew exactly how to get it done.

  • dmp

    So this woman was married at the time?! I somehow missed the mention of that. Well was her husband there? Maybe they are all friends lol. That does add to the mystery of it all. If she and GB had an affair as someone mentioned then they sure weren’t very secretive about it . . . I guess apparently they didn’t care who saw. I wonder what happened next? Definitely not making excuses for GB and I don’t fully justify anything until I hear the full story . . . BUT the public never seems to get the full story with GB. We can only go by bits and pieces that may or may not be true. Anyway, the fact is that at the end of the day he is an adult. I don’t always condone the behavior that is reported about him but I also don’t know the whole story either.

    @dmp:

    I think that is the problem with photos like this, they come with no context, no real understanding of what is going on, so people read between the lines, often lines that aren’t even there, and come up with these often mad and over-the-top conclusions.

  • Midsummer’s’ Eve

    @curious cat:

    I had my own ideas of how Scarlett should have gone on. I think the end of the first story was the pivotal point in her life and should have been from there an all down hill decent for her in to the reality of the hell her own selfish life created for her which was a far worse battle to fight then any war ever was. But no one asked me to write the sequel! LOL!

    My ringtone is even “My One True Love”. GWTW is my all time fav.

    Her style was not really my thing but that was personal taste it bears no reflection on what I thought of her as a person I suppose she was a humanitarian but the woman had no grace.

    @dmp:

    ” I agree with the person who mentioned that if this is how GB acts in public what is he like in private lol.”

    **

    Without an audience, he might be a bit more subdued, especially alone with someone. I’ve heard talk even from fans who have ran in to him in public that he seems shy at first around a stranger. Then he relaxes a bit more and his goofy side comes out. Seems like he sizes people up and treats them accordingly. I think he’s probably a good reader of body language.

  • Midsummer’s’ Eve

    @Lord:

    ” He has his faced shoved in the crotch of a married woman in full view of the pool crowd”

    **

    The fact that it IS in a crowded public area where probably her husband is nearby, makes it all the more playful! Now if they were out of sight alone, might be different.

    Lighten up! I bet you’d love to have that man’s mug in YOUR crotch! LOL!

    Just figured that out . . . thanks for the response. When I first read it (out of context) I thought it was about that married woman from Italy with GB. I figured they moved their antics from the pool area to the beach lol.

  • curious cat

    @Midsummer’s’ Eve:

    I’d like to know more of your thinking on this. I thought Scarlett was immature and selfish but would have liked to see her struggle and grow up in Reconstruction Georgia in the second book, not run off to Ireland and play the same mind games.

    GWTW is a work of fiction. There is no real truth to stick to except the reality of that period in history. I heard a third book was underway and focused on Rhett Butler. It’s unclear what he was doing in GWTW except that he was clearly involved in some illegal wartime activities, gun running maybe, selling to the enemy, profiteering from the war, but he seemed to get patriotic at the end.

    OMG. A sequel with Gerard Butler playing Rhett Butler emerges.

    It astounds me the things people criticize in fiction (I don’t mean YOU!) just a general remark. Do you know the movie, “Dances With Wolves,” with Kevin Costner? It’s one of my favorites. Native American women criticized it because Costner’s character falls in love with the one white woman in the tribe. They asked, why didn’t he court the attractive Native women? They made this a racist issue. B Fing S.

    OMG. Many white settlers were killed and white girls kidnapped, grew up native, forgot their heritage and sometimes chose to stay with the native tribes even when they had the choice later to leave. The white woman was an obvious plot device to provide a character whom the chief assigned to speak “the white talk” (English) and communicate with the white man. Otherwise the movie woudln’t have moved forward very fast if nobody could speak to anybody. She became an interpreter.

  • Lord

    Let me get this straight. You believe that this woman’s husband was nearby, laughing it up at the “playfulness” of another man sticking his face in his wife’s crotch? Seriously?

    I do love a face in my crotch in private, but I would slap the hell out of my boyfriend if he acted like that with me in public. And if he acted like that with another woman, I would kill him; not be charmed by his playfulness.

    Got to question your bizarre sense of morality, you have a massive problem with someone’s head in another persons crotch but have no problem advocating domestic violence or even murder of a partner or spouse for something you don’t like? You can keep that ‘moral high ground’ all to yourself.

    @ MANNY

    I’am sure you remember me. You came on Jen Aniston’s thread in 2009.At that time,you weren’t sure if you were going to stay there, or go
    over and be a Jolie/Pitt fan.You decided on the JP’s.

    On Jen’s thread at that time, here is what you commented. “Jade,Anne
    Marie and Ellie: Why don’t you guys go and correspond on Facebook,
    to chat? This is a blog thread right? Just an observation.”

    We had been here for four years,and you were new, and telling us what to do.

    I see you have some people fooled here,but not all.You are not the Blog Police of Jared’s Website.

  • Lord

    LOL niknoks. You got me. Yes, I admit it. I am an advocate for domestic violence and murder.

    I dont have a massive problem with his head in her crotch. They are consenting adults. My problem is the absurd justification of the plainly immature and manwhoreish behavior by his crazy fans as innocent playfulness.

    Please, continue on with your unabashed support of anything this man does. I am sure he will love you for it one day.
