    I admit that I was originally only interested in “Coriolanus” because Mr. Butler is in it. But after watching the trailer I think this film is going to blow people against the wall and pin them there, Between Gerry & Ralph Fiennes there’s enough raging testosterone on the screen to make it explode and the hard rock soundtrack is a bonus for a closet head banger past her prime like me! ;-D

    I’m sorry, Jared, but this film is about Ralph, not Gerard!
    he’s the main actor, he’s the director, he’s the ONE!

    I miss the way he looks here. I guess thats the past. He looks absolutely dreadful these days.

    @What a shame: Hi What a Shame. Don’t worry about it. Gerry is a chameleon who reinvents himself for each role he takes. His look right now is surfer dude for “Mavericks” but I doubt very much that it will last. For the purists who say that Frosty was chubby (and I’ve seen the pics…he was), I think they’re using a bit of artistic license for the film. After all, who wants to watch a shirtless chubby guy surf? I’m not trying to insult chubby people either…seeing as I am one! :-P

    Nothing wrong with posting it here. He IS in the film after all. And it should garner him more hits to his site, and nothing wrong with that either.

    I’ll agree with his build here liking far better than his leaner look. I’m in agreement with the Oscar poster that this film is pure quality through and through. It was a labor, literally, of love. Gerry was selected for a respectable reason: his history in film, his presence, his imposing build different than Ralph’s, but mostly for his wordless ability to say more with his face and body than that (beautiful) mouth.

    Much more handsome then. OK, nearly 2 years ago, but time has certainly not improved his looks. He looks stringy and too skinny now. Really don’t like the new GB – does NOTHING for me. I accept that everyone changes their looks for different roles, but the difference between the Corio trailer and the ‘skinnymalinki’ in yesterday’s locker room Ewww is extraordinary.

    @jennychi:
    .
    I have to agree. Butler looked soooo good when filming Coriolanus.
    .
    I guess Butler has his reasons for his latest body sculpture, but I for one am not a fan of it.

    @justsayin’too – ITAWY. Joe is a nummy morsel…

    Butler is kind of damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t…….

    I would agree considering how seriously they take their football…

    @Manny: Hey, Manny…I’m from New England in the US, and many Red Sox & Patriots fans are EXACTLY the same way (my hubby’s been a Pats ticket holder for years so I am intimately familiar with the phenomenon)!

    any one got the dough to bid on Gerard’s signed Celtic shirt?

    @home town blues:

    Kind of like Baltimore natives who claim the Steelers as their team. Booooo!! Go Ravens!!

    I understand how St. Mirren supporters feel, but for heaven’s sake he jumped ship when he was 6 years old, not recently. He’s been a Celtic fan his whole life. Sometimes you latch onto a team and their yours forever.

    Gerry really should try to be more supportive of his “roots’.

    Paisley Says:

    @sockpuppet: Hi sockpuppet…nope. I was actually considering it until I found out that 200 British Sterling translates to about $350 U.S. I knew it would get expensive but no way could I rationalize it to the hubby. Unfortunately…

    @home town blues: Seems he’s always getting the scolding finger for something by his home town folks. Not surprising he doesn’t spend more time there, if they are so quick to attack him.

    @Paisley: “I think they’re using a bit of artistic license for the film. After all, who wants to watch a shirtless chubby guy surf?”
    .
    Good point. If Butler is shrinking down to be a stringy scrawny surfer dude, that means he’s not too concerned about an accurate physical portrayal of his character. Which I think is too bad, because I think that direction kind of puts personal ego in front of acting. Does he want to look like a character, or does he want to look like what HE wants to look like? IMO he was physically perfect for the role 6 weeks ago, when the wet suit pics came out. He looked build and age appropriate for the portrayal of Frosty. But again, I’m not totally buying the pr that the weight loss is all for a role. If he loses any more mass, a slight breeze will send him aloft.

    The Noise In The Walls Says:

    Thanks for the article…Home Town Blues…I know Europe defintely takes their “footie”..Futbol, soccer etc..seriously….but considering Gerry was only six years of age when he made the switch??.. Huh?..I’m sure it was all in jest…

    Paisley Says:

    @cubedweller: Hi cubedweller…hey, I’m a CD too! I’m not necessarily sure that it’s Gerry’s decision to make. Ultimately the Hollywood machine is about box office returns, and it’s quite possible that they had the final say in the matter. Peace!

    @Paisley:
    .
    I can totally understand that. My hubby’s best friend is a die-hard Yankee man (boos). So my hubby cheers for whomever is playing the Yankees. :)
    .
    @cubedweller:
    .
    I so agree with you. He was perfect 6 weeks ago. :)

    Paisley Says:

    @cubedweller: CD – don’t get me wrong…I’m not saying that the man couldn’t stand to regain 10 lbs or so by any means. I could handle seeing him with a bit more meat on his bones too, but I think the panic is a bit overdone…I know that I was swept along with the tide myself. But when you look back at his early work (Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married, The Young Person’s Guid to Becoming a Rock Star, Fast Food & such), he was quite slim then as well.

    Paisley Says:

    @Manny: Manny that’s hysterical. My husband is the exact same way. He has a bit of good natured back & forth harrassment going with our next door neighbor who’s a Yankees fan. He roots for whoever’s playing AGAINST the Yankees. Same thing for the NY Jets…it’s all really rather amusing. :-D

    The Noise In The Walls Says:

    Actors/actresses tend to go up and down on their weight depending on what roles they get…Not sure why Gerry has slimmed down so..maybe it is for a role etc..Mavericks?..or whatever..but my personal preference on him is added weight…He looks better TO ME..plus he’s got height..but I suppose it’s all in personal preference…
