    @Maggie P.U.: Okay, fair enough. I’ve always wanted to get my hands on his cell phone. I’ll erase the millions of women’s phone numbers in there and put ours in. Juice him up on Coke and I’m sure I can get him to go another round!

    An adventure/romance with a slight comedy element might be a good idea for Gerard Butler. I would think it would be a different formula than the usual rom/com. With a well written script and the right female co-star…might be a winning combination. I am not sure if a remake of Romancing the Stone is the way to go. The chemistry between Micheal Douglas and Kathleen Turner was so strong, might be hard to duplicate it…much harder to surpass it. It would be risky.

    gossiphound-true there are good remakes, but they are so few and far between. True Grit was a great script and then the Coen brothers put there touch on it, plus 40 years had passed. To me making remakes from the 80′s and 90′s is just too much too soon.

    Since when is looking and smelling like a bum hot? Just curious.

    @51 EA….ROTFLMAO!!!!! Sounds like a plan, I’ll have him down 6 before and 6 after and also give him some M/Ms……. we will make sure he remembers his visit to our gutter/spa….TRY!!! to keep it at say 2 rounds we have to make sure he can walk out on his own 2 feet…K?… we don’t want to create a scene and have paps all over the place. Would be bad for our image…..

    Peace.

    Maybe they should put Gerry in a movie called ‘Romancing the Bone’ Bet that would be a hit LOL.

  • Mani

    Did someone say there was a picture of him with his dog somewhere, I don’t think so. Not here, there or anywhere.

  • gossiphound

    @justsayin’too: Agreed. What is next St. Elmo’s Fire? Pretty in Pink? Ferris Bueller’s Day Off? I’m still not stoked about DiCaprio playing Jay Gatsby but hey, that was a 70s movie.

    Oh right they are redoing Dirty Dancing. That’s tough if you loved the original but I can see with the popularity of all the dance shows on TV like DWTS and SYTYCD and all the Dance crews competitions, you freshen up the dance styles and make it more current it will work.

  • MarieDevereux

    Enough with the horrible comments about him and his appearance. I’m sure you ladies don’t wake up looking like you just walked out of a Sephora/M.A.C. Store, or with your hair completely gorgeously styled up. He took a shower, brushed it and just let it air dry. Let him be himself. Why are you so hung up on his looks? For his age, he still looks damn gorgeous. As for the movie, as much as I don’t want them to remake the movie “Romancing the Stone”, Hollywood doesn’t seem to be doing much with originality, since they are also remaking “The Great Gatsby.”
    Ladies, please, leave the man alone with his looks. If you don’t like the way he looks, then why are you even here? Yeah, sure, leave your opinion, but do you honestly think that the fans that really like him are going to want to read the vapid things you have to say about his looks? Take your comments elsewhere, please. Gerard is a gorgeous man who is still flaunting his good looks, and I adore him, what can I say? Of course, if he ever reads these: Gerard, you’re wonderful. Please continue to do all the incredible things you do. I’ll be watching them, regardless.

    Another thread? We were still getting the kinks worked out of the last one. Talk about just rollin out of bed, he sure has some serious bedhead going on. Love the eyes…..piercing wouldn’t you say. And his phone in his ear as usual. That’s our GB.

    As far as the remake goes, I’m not sure movie-goers are ready for another one. Gossip, you’re right, are there no original scripts out there worth sinking money into? Are all the script writer on a permanent siesta? At least GB and company are trying to produce movies based on books.

    To all east coasters, my prayers are with you. Stay safe!

    @Latesummer’s Eve: You’re right about True Grit, it was a good movie although I had a devil of a time trying to understand what the heck Jeff Bridges was muttering most of the time. My ear was right up to the TV!
    But think of all the other remakes coming out that we could all very easily do without: Footloose, Dirty Dancing, The Crow, A Star is Born…oh dear, I’m weeping just thinking of how cr@p they’re going to be compared to the originals.
    But I have to admit that I am being hypocritical because I am looking forward to these remakes very much: Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy (seen the trailer yet? looks soooo good) and Dambusters. Although the casting of Dambusters could make me change my mind; I love The Great Gatsby as a book but won’t be going to see Leo and Tobey ponce their way around the screen.

    Ugh, I’m in the no remake, no Heigl camp. Is Priyanka Chopra still staying with Mr Butler? Would explain ‘ just out of bed’ Gerry! If it really was just good friends wouldn’t we be seeing ‘ sexually frustrated, get out of my face ‘ Gerry?

  • XXX.

    Has Gerry got a Tattoo?. What is the mark just showing beneath his shorts ( left leg).A tattoo or nasty bruise?.

  • Me2

    Oh,no. No more remakes!!…. doesn’t anyone in Hollywood have a creative mind anymore?….C’mon Hollyweirders…. we want something new!!… and no more stupid romcoms &2012 type stuff please!!

    @bystander: Priyanka isn’t staying with Gerard , she was staying at his house in Los Feliz, while he was, and as far as I can tell by this pics , is still staying in Malibu.

    @gossiphound:

    Oh gosh! That is the ultimate bed-head. I guess Lolita couldn’t wait for Gerry to even grab a hat! Actually I had the same thing happen this morning. Buddy just had to go so I was out back with my hair a mess and my jammies on! Hope there were no paps around!

    Good Morning JJer’s! Not happy that this hurricane is still bearing down upon us–and I have to move both of my kids into their college dorms this weekend. It’s gonna be messy! Much worse than Gerry’s hair. Which is still quite the turn on I might add.
    Have a great day!!

    @Me2:
    It’s not even confirmed that Priyanka was staying in Los Feliz. The gossip piece said she was at Gerry’s villa in Beverly Hills (which he does not have). I suspect the entire thing was made up. I’ve read gossip articles before about Gerry and Priyanka (as well as other Indian actresses) that were complete fabrications. I’ll bet this is yet another. If Priyanka is there on business (she’s supposedly recording an album) her first class accommodations would already be arranged for her ahead of time as part of her contract. She does not have to stay at a friend’s house. That’s ridiculous. It’s a b.s. story to link Gerry’s name with a Bollywood actress and silly little things like facts are rarely respected. These Bollywood stories about Gerry are notoriously inaccurate.

    GOOD MORNING, GOOD MORNING, A DOUBLE SHOT!LOL,It’s another wonderful day! another thread of Gerry, LOL. Better than expresso, LOL, OMG, I just love Gerrys sweet face and he’s with his best girl, LOL Lolita….Just love them both! He looks GREAT! Love the Hair, Green Soft Eyes, just a carefree look, I admire Gerry for his Grace and Style, Looks like another Movie Idea! Wow, guess he likes to keep the reel going. I would love to see Gerry and Kathie work together again, the on screen chemistry was JUST MAGIC!…..Well I am a happy camper after seeing this, Gerry and Lolita are to sweet!
    HUGS AND KISSES TO YOU GERRY AND LOLITA!LOL…..

    If he stood on his head, he’d be a human Swiffer.

  • cubedweller

    I give a thumbs down to a “Romancing the Stones” reboot. But I would love to see him do another film with Heigl. I thought they had great chemistry, and were very funny together. IMO he needs a strong partner onscreen to balance his sometimes over-the-top acting. I thought she was one of the best, as far as his leading ladies go. Feel free to disagree.

    Best wishes to the East Coasters. Off to FB to check on my Carolina peeps. Have a great weekend, all!

    Yea you said it SISTER, LOL, I just love Gerry the way he is. Pretty close to perfect in my eyes. lol, I love to watch Gerry work, Gerry and Alan have a few projects that they are going to produce, I CANT WAIT, Did you see LAW ABIDING CITIZEN, WOW, Gerry brought it home, and I just know that MGP is going to bring a smile on that sweet face wihen he walks up to get his OSCAR! You know I have thought about remakes and Gerry, If he does them, I would like to see him make a revision of RIFFLE MAN! Gerry holding that Gun and walking down the street, only you know boost it up alittle, add a couple of guys next to him. Or Yea , Perry Mason!, I think he would be great! Gerry is so versitable with his work, I believe these 2 oldies would be BLOCKBUSTERS for everyone…..I also would love someone to write a Western for Gerry, You know a action pack, soga! Like Lonesone Dove but Better, You know put a spin on it, Silverado, but mostly the story needs to be REALLY DIFFERENT! Gerry would be great! LOL, I guess I will have to wait my turn. Appilonia G. MontiNegro

  • Update

    @.: Priyanka was friends with Butler until he goofed with her that he wanted fwb. Indian women usually want monogamy. So after his much flirtations she figured out after a visit to LA a year or so back “never consider someone a priority when you are only a option. And she ran back to India to her ex.

  • Update

    @Update: She was on a film shoot at the time in Arizona. She left after all that.

  • N.

    MGP costs $40 million to produce. Wow that’s a lot of dough for an indie and especially opens with limited release.. Here is hoping MGP will start slow and snowball to a monster of a success like King’s Speech, The Fighter, True Grit and Black Swan.

    He looks so adorable with that mop of a head. Blue color of the shirt really does bring out his eye color. Amazing. I noticed in the MGP trailer his eye color is darkened to match Sam’s.

    Gerry needs a strong actress to counteract him and not to be intimidated by his presence. Rather to err on choosing someone the rough side than picking skinny dainty dames.

    Gerry honey…if this “opportunity” comes your way, don’t do it! I’m one of the minority – I loved TUT & thought that Gerry and Katherine had pretty good chemistry together, as opposed to him and JA. That’s only my opinion. Believe it or not, I also actually liked the original RTS – I thought it was a hoot in a slapstick sort of way. HOWEVER, I think remaking it in the same light-hearted tenor as the first one would be a complete disaster, Now, if they wanted to rework it to make it edgier, darker and sexier, I just might be willing to go along for the ride. :-)
    Peace everyone!

    @justsayin’too:

    I’m a screenwriter too and I love the challenge of making a remake of an older version of a classic in to a more modern and updated take on the story.
    -
    I think RTS as a remake would be excellent, especially if Gerry is in it and I DO like remakes. If you don’t like them then don’t go see them but don’t make such a big deal out of it as if everyone doesn’t like them. Speak for yourself. LOL!

    A Star Is Born has already been remade once. The first one was with Judy Garland, the second with Babs and now the new one.

    -
    Absolutely. Besides, Indian women are bound by strict religious beliefs and sexual and relationship protocol and staying in a man’s house while she’s there is probably taboo anyway. I’m doubting the entire story.
