Oh boy! I’m second! in line! Gerry looking good and on the move once again! He’s got a lot to do in the next few weeks! Hope he’s taking his vitamins! LOL!

I know Gerry’s only 42 but these days he looks more like 52. He has always looked older than he is but I think all this weight loss has made him look a lot older. And then there’s the smoking of course. I really hope he doesn’t lose any more weight. He looks sooo thin in this pic http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2577225/gerard-butler-arrives-lax-03/fullsize/ :(

@LLL:
What do you mean?

He looks great in these pics!

@Amie:

I agree I hope he does not lose any more weight. He is much better looking when he has some weight on his bones.

@Truth: Yes, definitely! And a little fat fills out the wrinkles. He’s not 25 anymore.

I wonder if 42 is his REAL age! He is fine as wine, but I wonder if 42 is his Hollywood age!

@Truth: LOL, yup, it’s his real age, believe it or not. ;) I saw a picture of his passport and it said 1969. I think the way he has lived his life, being an alcoholic, using drugs and also exposing his skin to a lot of sun has made him look older than his age. He still looks very good though. :)

justsayin'too @ 09/06/2011 at 11:04 pm

Catherine Deneuve said it so well- after 40 you have to decide between your fanny or your face. Most of Hollywood could skip the fillers and plastic surgery by gaining a few pounds.

@Amie:
OMG, look at his hips and wrists in that picture! So skinny! I’m not liking his new look at all :(

I’m probably in the minority but I think he looks good in these pics

@CC:

I already said he looks good in these pics. I find him very attractive regardless. But I would love to see him with more weight on his bones.

curious cat @ 09/06/2011 at 11:33 pm

@Truth:

This has come up before. It’s too easy to find vital statistics on people nowadays. If someone can hack into his email, someone could have blown an attempt to fudge his age long ago. Births are public records.

@cc I too think I am in the minority but to me he looks fine, very trim. His face is more defined and he seems to have the muscle without the fat. I also like the long hair some people dislike. That said, it’s none of our business what he weighs or how he chooses to wear his hair. He’s the one to decide how he feels best, whether it’s for a role or for his life.

Just sat in a room with crying Gerard Butler for 20 minutes. Crying Gerard Butler is now a meme in my personal life. #awkward
9 minutes ago

@Kim: What??? She was in a room WITH Gerry when he was crying?! This is weird….

@Minnie:
The reviewer is a guy. He was at the screening and Q&A of MGP tonight. I think he means Gerry was crying during the Q&A.

@Minnie: The person watched MGP.

@Truth: @curious cat: looks like we are in the minority lol. I love his hair like this. Especially when its a darker shade. Thats probably why I think he looks real good in this set of pics, his hair looks darker.

I doubt he was talking about Gerry crying in MGP. He said he was “with crying Gerard Butler for 20 minutes.” The film is way longer than 20 min. He was likely referring to the Q&A session. jmo

@Minnie: Oh sorry, I see now that it was a movie review LOL.

Yep, wouldn’t surprise me one bit. GB is a real cry baby these days. Whatever it takes you know.

Yep, he meant Gerry cried during the entire Q&A, not the film.
http://twitter.com/TempleOfReviews
The ENTIRE q&a. He kept fighting it back like a champ and got through things though.

@Kim:
ROFLMFAO!!!! GB is just too much! Well, kudos to him for being secure in his masculinity. Not many other male actors have enough confidence in themselves to pull off a crying session during a public Q&A. :D

cubedweller @ 09/07/2011 at 12:22 am

So, Butler’s MGP co-star, Michael Shannon, is in Chicago filming the new “Superman” movie. They are filming about a block from the theater used for tonight’s screening. Maybe they will make some appearances together to promote the film.
.
@@Kim: Maybe that’s why Butler is wearing cargo pants these days – he needs to carry extra hankies.

He’s leaving for Totonto……

UPS….mean Toronto ;0

I think he’s heading o Chicago first. He’s scheduled to appear on 2 local shows Wed am-early!!

@Kim:
OMG….. That’s all I have to say. I wish I could see a clip of that.

Real people @ 09/07/2011 at 1:40 am

Gerry! are you dying from some sort of deseas or something? IF NOT, can you please shave! I am YOUR biggest fan and good that you have lost that fatty BUT for godforsaken sake SHAVE SHAVE SHAVE SHAVE SHAVE. I will courier you some if you are too lazy to buy :) stil love you thou but dont take us for granted as Micheal Fassbender is very close in replacing you in our heart!

I cry every time I see one of Gerard Butler’s films, why shouldn’t he?

What’s all the fuss about hookers sharing his email?

I meant hackers.

No I didn’t.

What in heaven’s name are some of you guys talking about?? He looks great!

He is a beautiful man – period! What do you guys want? If you saw him walking down the street on any given day, you know you would be doing some serious double-takes!

I just don’t get it when people say he doesn’t look good. He’s SUCH a hottie!

curious cat @ 09/07/2011 at 5:04 am

@Question:

Just recently. It’s been all over the Internet and mentioned on recent threads. Hollywood Leaks is the name of the underground organization that is attacking HW stars. So far JJ has ignored it but it’s out there.

curious cat @ 09/07/2011 at 5:07 am

@Question:

Just type Gerard Butler and Hollywood Leaks into your search box and it wil all come up. He is not the only one.

bystander @ 09/07/2011 at 5:54 am

Looking at the splayed wheels on his suitcase I’d be a little p*ssed trying to drag that thing along!

@Crocodile Tears: THIS IS NOT A FAKE CRYING. AND IF YOU ARE A GB FAN, WHAT I DOUPT THAT YOIU ACTUALLY ARE, YOU WOULD KNOW THAT HE NEVER CRY IN PUBLIC, NEVER BEFORE. HE IS A PERSON WITH HIS FEELINGS AND IF HE FOUND THAT INTERVIEW TOUCHING OR FOUND SAM CHILDERS’ WORK TOUCHING THEN HE REALLY CRIED. AND I BELIEVE HIM. HE IS NOT THE FAKE PERSONALITY MAN.

@curious cat: I haven’t heard about this. Have there been any details revealed from his email? Or has it just been stated that it was hacked and nothing more?

@Any publicity is …:
I totally, TOTALLY agree with you! Very well said.

angelsrock @ 09/07/2011 at 7:01 am

@Any publicity is …:

I only follow Butler here on the net. Other actors i will catch from time to time on tv interviews or here if they’re connected to Gerry’s work. I’ve seen little PR for Coriolanus so I’m not sure what you’re talking about with Ralph. They did push back the premiere to January so I’m not sure if his “classy” PR is working or not. Michael Fassbender seems like a cool dude, but for the most part he’s new to all this as far as leading man goes so he’s probably watching his p’s and q’s. Gerry is who he is and there is no doubt he’s an emotional guy.

bystander @ 09/07/2011 at 7:05 am

@Any publicity is …: we’re singing from the same sheet! Gerry needs to change his team, they are not advising/serving him at all well.

@bystander: What do you mean Bystander?

Bystander, what do you mean with this comment, I didn’t get it?

angelsrock @ 09/07/2011 at 7:09 am

@bystander:

Gerry is never going to behave like you want him to; he is who he is. If it hurts his career so be it. Although it seems he’s doing just fine. He is definitely “different” and that’s why he has such crazy fans and creates so many lively discussions.

@Nonfamous: It also says a gmail address.

WO has some pics of Sam, Gerry and another man. It looks like it is the interview about the film. Look at all their faces, it shows the emotion they are all feeling. This movie will effect everyone who sees it and I am sure it effected everyone who was in it. Not every emotion he shows is for PR, some things he has experienced has moved him as a person. Can you imagine what the reaction to him would be if he looked bored at this press events, my goodness they would rip him apart. Give him a break for being human with feelings.

justsayin'too @ 09/07/2011 at 7:51 am

Question- if we can invent nuclear bombs, put a man on the moon, why can’t we invent a camera that takes 10lbs. off instead of puts it on people. Maybe then all theses HW stars and models would not starve themselves skinny. I’ve always wondered that.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/07/2011 at 8:10 am

Well it’s GERRY TIME ! Yea, want a guy,! This morning Gerry is in the Windy City! You all can watch him in the interview on live stream. The link is at Gals Facebook, just go down to where it says Gerry in Windy City….The time will be at 9 a.m. Yea, he looks great ! What a sweet face he has. Gerry is going to be talking about MGP! it’s here, it’s here! LOL Bless our Gerry he loves those cargo pants and those sneakers, lol, ME TOOOOOOO, LOL..I can hardly wait for 9 a.m. So all you Gerry Lover’s ,lol, ME TO, DONT FORGET TO TUNE IN! I just know it is going to be great! Appilonia G. MontiNegro

Wow… I thought you guys would be excited to see all the up coming events with Gerard Butler. With the thumps down on “let the fun begin”, I guess I was wrong. Sorry

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/07/2011 at 8:26 am

@Truth: Good Morning, YEA, Gerry is the most handsome guy in HW! I love how he has aged well, I personally love the way he has always looked. Gerry is a beautiful guy, just very natural looking, AND THAT IS WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT GERRY, He is who he is! He looks all MAN! Wonderful….I love every wrinkle & crease LOL,,,,Gerry is a delight to watch and look at LOL, It is so nice to see him out and about and feeling good! I just know it is going to be OSCAR TIME for Gerry! Yea, long over due! Appilonia G. MontiNegro

@Nonfamous: Gerard is a diamond in the rough. He cleans up incredible. He has roles currently that forces him to be more scruffy. He probably enjoys the low maintenance. All will swoon when he goes into his hunk mode.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/07/2011 at 8:40 am

@Nonfamous: WOW, sure is interesting that you would come on the JJ Board to say this kind of stuff about Gerry! lol, It is odvious to me that you are not a fan!lol, GERRY BUTLER is the most desirable and natural man in HW….He is not plastic or pretencious, YOU GET WHAT YOU GET WITH GERRY, and I would take that over all the plastic hurtful people HW. He is emotional about many things, EXPECIALLY about Children and Helpless people. Gerry is a sensitive, kind, very giving hard worker, LOL, You can not see this odviously because you are NOT!LOL….Gerry has many wonderful friends and fans here on JJ and It is disappointing to see YOU , say this about him. I guess I will consider the source on this one. AND SHAME ON YOU!…..Appi

@ Nonfamous: People sure can be cruel. We are quickly turning into a world of unnecessary criticism. You know what they say about opinions……..

I love this. I do. Not that he’s struggling but that he can’t contain those emotions. Really doubt he’ll be able to keep them in check anywhere and with anyone he interviews with. Love like the rare tumbled pearl he has become… and it wasn’t easy either.
~K
who is confused… is his tee-shirt black or navy?

Nonfamous needs to be reported and have his posts deleted… now.

He’s so mellow in the morning. Certainly not a Morning Lark. I just LOVE his laugh. What fun!!
~K

I knew that there would be pics.LOL.
He looks good,a bit tired but good.
Loving the darker hair.Miss the smile.

@GFW
Thank you for posting the video link.

What pics? These? He’s making his way from Point A to Point B with invasive photohogs on his vapor trail. In reality this is more the real Gerry during these “off” photos than the wide smiles. Get used to it. He’s just more authentic now. It’s like the show is over folks! Besides, they’re be more than enough smiles when they’re appropriate. Here, he looks like what’s on his mind is as heavy as what he’s carrying in his luggage… how to deal with serious interviewing questions… about Sam, him, and Sam’s mission. Not exactly light fare.
~K

@Scarlett, you’re welcome. LOL He’s “married”! He’s so funny. And now it really is “just Gerry”. Finally, but the jerk at the end called him GEEERard! LOL

Sharing from my blog where we’re crazy for Daniel Day-Lewis…
Enough of that, Daniel Day-Lewis has all the qualities for Lincoln deep and exterior same like my lug playing the real-life thug, not that he ever was one. But he’d experienced hanging with the wrong crowd. He drew on that. Knows the effect all that negativity can do. How it can drag one down, suck any hope and joy of progress. How people cave! Then like the reborn thug, the rebirth, then redeemed… like Bruce through love. Being “born again” however, in Christ, or just by want, he did it! And did it afraid. Now, he like Sam, is playing catch up. It’s so exciting. These are the best of times. All that’s happened, even lately, was a way to understand. A way to free himself. He passed through a crisis like Lincoln. Very tough for Lincoln, like my lug, but he knew what was right, and did it afraid.
~K
who thinks this tour is going to be emotionally exhausting for him… bless his big as Texas heart that he wears on his skin like thin crystal

@curious cat, I think..
He’s aware of it.
He’s not worried either.
When speaking to business, he’s all business. No worries.
He’s moved on, maybe we should regarding this?

Flag the mental offensive post!! No one should see that, least of all Gerry… if he stopped by. It is the only way that sick comment will get the boot!

OK, JJer’s, Hey Gerry just finished the Windy City Interview, about MGP. What a wonderful guy! Gerry was dressed casual and very handsome! lol,What a tall drink of water, His hair was perfect. I just enjoyed listening to him talk about MGP and his experience on set. Yea Gerry, bring on the GERRY JUICE, and he was asked if he had a girlfriend, Yep, GERRY IS STILL SINGLE,…..The crowd roared, lol…..Well this is the beginning of a long set of interviews, WE HOPE!LOL…Let’s all GIVE GERRY A BIG SHOUT OUT, WE LOVE YOU GERRY! LOL….Just love to see Gerry….Appilonia G. MontiNegro

Kerry Wood who was on before him is much handsomer.

@Angela Pearlygates Montinegro: OK, HA HA VERY FUNNY, JJer’s this person is NOTHING BUT EVILTWIN RUBBISH!LOL, Angela Pearlygates, please do not use my family name attached anywhere near YOURS! LOL,

Thank you for the video link GFW. I thought G did a good job, not too indulgent with himself but put Sam’s story front and central. And did I say he looked so handsome? although a bit tired. But those eyes and that smile!

“Did anyone see Moira (Framolamdu) in the audience? She was in the front row with another woman, and both of them got to ask Gerry a question. Why is it that everywhere we see Gerry, we see Framolamdu”
-
And I suspect he rolled his beautiful eyes the color of the sand and the sea too!! Nailed. Oh, if she only knew!!
-
This woman of means is everywhere he is publicly. Think she is vying for a chapter in his bio, which I want him to compose (in his own words and unique writing style –it think– he has) but is resisting most likely because he doesn’t want to address his giving up their lives to follow his fanatic fans!
-
Worse part? She’s her own followers! Truth. Her pathetically self-centered self (who loves the attention by the way) PMd me at gb(dot)net signifying all his fans/supporters are jealous of her. I.am.not. Truth.
~K

@Daphne:
you have to be one of the fans who attacked the guy who gave his review of MGP
@GFW: get a grip GFW I think its obvious that the last thing Gerry is is healthy right now. His weight loss was obviously done in an unhealthy way or else the skin wouldn’t hang on his torso like it does. Now a little emotion is a good thing but G seems to be having trouble controlling it. If he was so happy as you say he wouldn’t have picked up the cigs. But until Gerry chooses to be happy nothing or no one will do it for him.

It makes sense now that he flew to Chicago. I couldn’t understand why he would jump on a plane for a couple local interviews.

Thanks for the link . . . MGP may not be showing here until who knows when if at all . . . but at least I can see recent/live GB interviews about the movie. He’s lookin’ good . . . nice to see his GF Moira in the audience. BTW, comments by “oy” are very funny.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/07/2011 at 11:45 am

@GFW: Hey GFW, Who is Framolamdu? Yes I did see the 2 women that asked questions, I lady was from Scottland with short red hair…..So is just part of the junket seen? FYI Me interesting…Appi

@PsychoB “Don’t TELL me to calm down!!” LOL

Gerard Butler happily admitted: “Watch making is just like the cinema, it hides a precise mechanism which must then generate emotion. The world of ROGER DUBUIS, the arrival of its collections, like spaces of freedom, perfectly matches my principles. You need to take chances in life. And always push yourself.”
-
Why should he try and control his emotions regarding promoting this film? What’s the benefit of that? He’s a very emotional man.
-
And what is this psychobabble about “But until he chooses to be happy no one will do it for him.” nonsense? LOL He knows that! It isn’t his circumstances that makes him happy! It’s how he feels about himself. Too many use him. Too few he can really trust. And when they disappoint in, in all attempts at the things he wants, he hits a skid spot… who wouldn’t?!
-
About his health and weight loss. I can’t, and refuse, to discuss it. But he is not dying… and is not ill… mentally or physically. Those rumors are hurtful, cause distress and can damage his career. He is anything but ill on any level! I know stuff. LOL He simply made a conscious decision to switch from junk dead food to whole fresh foods.
~K

Go to GALS. I refuse to post her mug here. LOL
-
She’s middle-aged, Scottish, pale & pasty, somewhat fat with short sandy-blond hair like a man’s cut dripping in jewels with tons of lipstick and fang-like fingernails.
~K
who loves how Gerry loves using cinema rather than movies… (I think) his words are always very proper and thinks he’ll be a terrific addition to The Academy and they’re wise and lucky to have him… his future is so well planned and Hollywood loves him… and they should!! He’s a rare Indian Princess-cut emerald with deep veins

At first glance I thought this was a wet suit and advertisement for a deep-sea diving watch!

Hope he get a part in The Game of Thrones. This is a good way of promoting himself.

Can someone please post the pic of him with Sam? I don’t “do” WO. Her site is phony, policed and boring!! Many thx.

Thank you Just Jared team! (knuckle bump)

Good point about his shirt in these pics . . . is it blue or black? Is he so HW that he pulled a wardrobe change at the airport (lol) or is it the lighting? I vote for no shirt . . . although not proper for the airport so how about a transparent shirt . . . would make for a quick security check – maybe. He also looks good wearing red.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/07/2011 at 12:21 pm

@GFW: Wow, he looks wonderful, and Oh Yea the watch looks nice tooo, lol, Appi

Oh, and he sounds very excited about Coriolanus in the morning interview. Think he’s proud to be attached to it. It’s too bad it was rolled back but think having to diverse films next year will be terrific.
~K

I can’t believe Sam the thug handed Gerry a gun. Did he not see GAMER? LOL
-
Testing Gerry? Not wise. Think he might know all the tricks when it comes to testing people… just a hunch.
-
Love how he’s remaining very positive when it comes to Sam though. Wise be that. He’s a frail ego, like most men, so it is best to be as honest as possible focusing on his better qualities.
~K
who thinks the getting Sam “Back to Africa” campaign did not work ;o) and will let you guys return to your regularly scheduled program… cheers!

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/07/2011 at 1:21 pm

@Real people:

First of all who is this “we” crap? Since you so eloquently slagged Gerry with back handed compliments, I’m doubting you are a fan at all, other then how he looks, and least of all his number one! You may take your leave to MF forums now and won’t be missed on this one! LOL!

Toronto International Film Festival
Machine Gun Preacher
Marc Forster

The true story of Sam Childers, an American drug dealing biker who turned his life around and became a crusader for hundreds of Sudanese child soldiers.

PROGRAMMER’S NOTE

Sam Childers is no typical evangelist. This biker-turned-missionary delivers humanitarian fire and brimstone from the barrel of an AK-47. Director Marc Forster — whose credits include Monster’s Ball, Finding Neverland and The Kite Runner — teams up with Gerard Butler to tell the phenomenal real-life story of a Pennsylvania ex-con who parleyed his aggression into a force for good, opening an orphanage for the war-ravaged children of Sudan.

Sam (Butler) checks out of prison and is initially displeased to learn that his wife Lynn (Michelle Monaghan), a former stripper, found a new job and committed herself to the church in his absence. But when old bad habits bring new consequences, Sam’s guilt and fear lead him to religion as well. He vows to support Lynn and their daughter Paige (Madeline Carroll), eventually estab lishing a successful construction business.

After hearing a speech about the war in Sudan one Sunday at church, Sam decides to lend a hammer to the missionary effort himself. Moved by the pitiless bloodshed he witnesses on his first trip to Africa, he returns to Pennsylvania with a vision: to build a home in Sudan for the destitute orphans of war. However, as he invests himself more deeply in the protection of Sudanese youth, his lethal brand of charitable vigilantism threatens both his life and his sanity.

>>>>Butler gives a tour-de-force performance<<< as a man fighting the most vicious of war lords and his own, equally ruthless inner demons. The combat sequences allow Butler to channel his action-hero bravura, while Sam’s interactions with the kids expose the actor’s thoughtful, tender side. Supporting roles from Monaghan and Michael Shannon (also appearing at the Festival in Take Shelter), as Sam’s reckless best friend, add depth to this formidable tale. A proven expert at both gripping character studies and epic shoot-’em-ups, Forster ably balances his intense interpretation of Sam with the wider implications of the Sudanese civil war.

Sometimes gruesome in its explicit portrayal of children at war, Machine Gun Preacher is an unflinching examination of the power — and danger — of human ambition.

DIRECTOR’S BIO

Marc Forster was born in Bavaria and studied film at New York University. His feature films include Monster’s Ball(01), Finding Neverland (04), Stay (05), Stranger Than Fiction (06), The Kite Runner (07), Quantum of Solace (08) andMachine Gun Preacher (11).

@GFW: Why can’t you find a photo yourself then omniscient one since you spend all day on a computer.

So when is “Machine Gun Preacher” being released in the states? I would like to have a valid opinion on G’s performance. I’m one of those that will start tearing up when seeing someone cry, so will not read or listen about the crying stuff. *not listening, not listening*

@N.
Thanks for posting.I’ve just watched it over @WO.
I just love the way he talks.Love his accent.

@GFW:

“Go to GALS. I refuse to post her mug here. LOL
-
She’s middle-aged, Scottish, pale & pasty, somewhat fat with short sandy-blond hair like a man’s cut dripping in jewels with tons of lipstick and fang-like fingernails.”

**

Ah hell no, you’re not one bit jealous of her! LMFAO!
-
You’re on a manic rant today aren’t you? You DO need to calm down! LOL! You’ve got ten posts on the fourth page alone! Take a freaking chill pill!

No more than you do. Ha-ha. I work on a computer! Ha-ha.
-
She’s in the audience in this clip! Can’t miss her. Jumps up like whale for a fish!

Best part is Burns is still on the back burner!!

It comes out September 30th here.

He’s very articulate. Love his Shattered moment. Well done!

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/07/2011 at 1:44 pm

@hmmm hmmm:

LOL! She’s just “living her life”!

Oh and I think Gerry looks way better, folks, then he did a few weeks ago! He’s still thin but seems to look healthier and better in the face. Just looks a bit like he’s in a rush, meeting himself in the middle these days! LOL!

LOL, His laugh is so incredible. A bit (blushing) TMI on his toilet joke but, hey, I get it! Nice interview. He’s so much calmer now. More humble as well. He’ll do fine on this. He’ll get is “sea legs” regarding the emotional stuff. Seems the movie IS hard to watch in parts but he had a wonderful come-back for that!
~K

Right, same like you AllAboutEve… you are WAY here more than I. Nailed.
~K
wondering how much his No. 1 fan laid out to be there all the way from Scotland and for to ask the question and get her pale and pasty mug on TV along with her goal of immortality for being in his life… thinking how he says “Hiya M (famous stalker fan who embarrasses me so much) by the way” says it ALL

curious cat @ 09/07/2011 at 2:01 pm

@GFW:

ME! MOVE ON? Ha ha ha!

I assume you were referring to my reply to Carlson who hadn’t heard the email hacking story. Can’t think of what else. I replied. BRIEFLY, without details or lurid speculation. The story was in the news.

YOU, on the other hand, have dominated the last two pages and most of this thread with your effusive fantasies, yearnings, rants, speculations and soulful outpourings about the Great God Gerry.

And YOU are suggesting WE MOVE ON?

This thread has clearly run its course. Lordy.

See you on the other side, folks. Done.

So what? They’re on topic!
-
Moving on about the email hacking is valid. Why not send them back to the thread it was discussed on?
-
Back to really moving on, and right on time, lunch break is over!
Ta-ta… enjoy your repeat, shuffle, all discussions with all the socks here. I’m done too. :o)
~K

Myassesment @ 09/07/2011 at 2:11 pm

He looked sad when he said he was single. He kind of gave in to Moira’s presence in the audience. He is humbled by MGP, Sam and the children of the Sudan. Not so egocentric as some interviews.

As I was passing thru a cafe, I noted Matt Damon on Regis&kelly. He wants his family around him during filming and genuinely adores his wife. I wish that for Gerry.

@redOctober @ 114

@redOctober
Sorry I was lost for words.LOL.
No really it’s a great pic. Thanks for posting.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/07/2011 at 2:36 pm

@Myassesment: I WHOLE HEARTLY AGREE WITH YOU! I would be so happy if he had a regular woman in his life. Someone that would support what he needs and more, and that he would learn and want to do the same. Even if she could not have children you know, He would know that she would be his family, his love his safe haven . I also noticed that his face changed and he was looking down when he answer the question. I have always felt a kinship with Gerry, years and years of interviews, ext, you know lol, I have watched him grow into this incredible, smart, funny man who is an Actor! lol..The only issue I take whole heartedly about is the fact this wonderful guy, “Gerry” is that for all the fame and money, and the presence and power he holds, the one thing that makes me tear up, is he is lonely!…Some people can be around 110 people and be busy and be active and at the end of the day , very lonely….
NO lol, sorry …..On the up side he did a great job with these interviews. Appilonia G. MontiNegro

Myassesment @ 09/07/2011 at 2:46 pm

@Appilonia G. MontiNegro: When the hosts introduced the Scot girl, he was initially nervous (foot tapping). Not too comfortable by her even though he is being a gentleman.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/07/2011 at 2:58 pm

@Myassesment: Yes I did see that, but he did say hi Miora my new best friend, maybe a buffer lol, to keep it easy going on the show. I am not sure about that, but Gerry is a gentle soul. And I am sure that he would not discount anyone of his fans if at all possible. GFW on the board here really has an issue with her,I do not know if she is part of some Scottish Group or you know , lol, a board. She just asked a normal question, you know nothing that Gerry could not handle. Appi

GFW couldn’t go to WO if she wanted to. They banned her and I wish we could do the same here.

Can'tGetEnough @ 09/07/2011 at 3:05 pm

Thought the interviews this morning were great. Loved hearing him speak for a change, so much better than just checking out the JJ pics. We speculate so much on the pap photos so when he speaks, even in a short interview, you get a peek at the real Gerry.

As far as his “crying” in the interviews goes, I know some think it’s a lot of BS, but I imagine that, as an actor, you really need to immerse yourself in the part—-really feel the emotions that the character you are portraying really feels. I know he filmed this awhile ago, but obviously when he talks about it, it brings back those emotions. Everyone feels deeply about something in their lives and he was obviously really touched by how Sam lived his life and what he did for those kids. Can’t wait to see MGP!

And Moira—-I recognized her name right away! Does she actually still live in Scotland and did she fly to Chicago just for this show? I’m betting she’s on her way to Toronto too!!

cubedweller @ 09/07/2011 at 3:06 pm

My Almost Butler Encounter. Or, a Story About Nothing
.
So I figured I would take a walk by the ABC Studios Building this am and see if I could catch a glimpse of the Big Guy (Butler, not the Other One). Strolled by about 9:15, and what did I see? A whole lot of nothing. No giggling fans, no paps (wait, there are no paps in Chicago). Just some peeps sweeping the sidewalk. I ambled into the nearest Starbucks, under the el tracks at State and Lake. “Yoohoo, Butler, are you in here??” Nothing. Just a bunch of tired working people getting their latte on. So I continued on my way – having business farther north in the city. I came back that way about an hour later. There was a tiny gaggle of women outside the door, and who should I see but Fram! In the flesh! No Butler tho – so I moved on. I had a better time checking out the Lurie Gardens. That’s my story, folks. Have a great day!

Ha-ha Haley. Good try! I have an account at WO. I even post. I h.o.n.e.s.t.l.y. do. Truth. Fact. Reality.
They can’t handle the truth. Webmistress was reading (my new story) for a spell too.
~K
who picked up on a hint of sadness to at his declaring he’s still single but F.E.A.R. and he knows it… spared, totally… he’ll get there when it’s right and when it’s right… it’s easy… even with a high difficulty man like him

“When the hosts introduced the Scot girl, he was initially nervous (foot tapping). Not too comfortable by her even though he is being a gentleman.”
-
She embarrasses the hell out of him. The look on his face was enough. Seriously how did she land getting on air like that? What did it co$t her?
-
She’s Scottish (and sounds it more than him) and will be in Toronto and California and on each and every flippin’ show.
-
Not that I don’t love ‘im like cash, as I do, but her obsession is now world-famous (and far different than mine his “Gerry porn writer”) but the difference is she is all about her… and he knows it. Sad to be that obsessed with an actor to invest so much $$$ (and her life she’s handed over to him) into inhaling his jet fumes… literally
-
And yes she’s met his mom! She’s famous in GerryLa-La-Land! Like I said she’s her own fandom. They kiss her ass for her stories.
~K

@cubedweller: Thanks for your recount of your stroll around Butler’s proximity this am.

Why thumb down my thank you to Jared’s team? The offensive blog site post is gone you fools!
~K

Thanks for posting the videos!!!!!!!!!! I was so disappointed when I missed it. You guys rock!

hmmm hmmm @ 09/07/2011 at 3:49 pm

@GFW:
“Can someone please post the pic of him with Sam? I don’t “do” WO. ”
Not telling the truth again? Or are you bi-polar?

@GFW:

Showing your true self here, eh Kathy? Your jealousy of Moira is pathetic. Lets see you post your photo here so the rest of us can have a shot at slagging your fugly face. Why is it any of your beeswax how she pays for her trips? YOU are plainly one of the most delusional fans in the GB kingdom of crazies. Go back to your blog and write some more of that crap you peddle to the poor suckers who actually think you have talent.

K

@Truth: I want to say thanks as well for anyone who posted the Chicago videos. Gerry seems to be such a nice person, not arrogant like some show biz types at all. Despite his amazing looks, hot career etc. he still manages to remain down to earth in interviews. Frankly, I’m glad I’m his fan. Best of luck to him. I can’t wait for the chance to see MGP.

Dear hmmm hmmm, Please stop obsessing about me. You’re starting to scare me. Honestly.
-
But for your obtuse self I’ll explain. I have an account there (they’re dumber than they think) and have posted, but don’t “do” their site because it is boring, policed, and phony. She has a few posters she caters to. It’s a private site so she can do whatever.
~K
who’s really leaving now who has an erotic post to write for tonight

Haha, the kisser uppers appear! Nailed!
~K
whose blog is filled a haven and shelter from the storm of mankind and I am SO not jealous… that’s what they all us to think… laying down gobs of cash to inhale his used breath in a studio audience!! I don’t chase anyone, get it? She’s a total embarrassment to ANY fan of his, myself included… and what’s with the first name usage? Not a real question. I transfix you quite.

hmmm hmmm @ 09/07/2011 at 4:13 pm

@GFW: ROTFLMAO PSML. Is Gerry-poo featured in that erotic post? Talk bout scary. Shudder.

curious cat @ 09/07/2011 at 4:14 pm

@GFW:

I referred the poster to the ORIGINS of the NEWS story, not to another GOSSIP THREAD, dimwit.

PS, dotDONT… Your site is DEAD. So is IMDb. So is WO. Why? Everyone his here because it isn’t policed, boring or phoney and posters aren’t picked apart like a three-piece KFC meal and can say whatever! So the flippin’ otter joke is on you!

angelsrock @ 09/07/2011 at 4:30 pm

@GFW:

Thanks for the link. I always have faith that someone will take care of business for me as I had to work. Great to get home and see Gerry interviewed. His voice was so scruffy. Maybe a cold or maybe he just rolled out of bed. He looked good!!! And responded well to the panel.

Sorry curious cat. Apologies.
@hmmm hmmm, yep and since 2006! He’s my muse. Many of his fans used to read me until he did something they personally couldn’t handle (sexually) and turn-coat then turned on me. I’ve him nailed quite accurately so my women can, ah, be with him intimately. (blushing)
~K
who must bid farewell now

angelsrock @ 09/07/2011 at 4:33 pm

@GFW:

I don’t care. I have more important things to worry about than Gerry’s over-the-top fans. All celebs have them. He can and will handle it. It doesn’t seem to bother him in the least.

angelsrock @ 09/07/2011 at 4:37 pm

@WTF:

Someone was comparing Gerry’s inelegant style to others like Fassbender and Fiennes. Variety is the spice of life and Gerry is one spicy ingredient. I accept who he is and what he does. Others just want to fit him into some sort of mold I guess.

The Noise In The Walls @ 09/07/2011 at 4:56 pm

I loved the interview..Gerry did a fantastic job:)..Great to see fans there supporting him..I’m sure the film is awesome..

Way To Go Gerry! ox

cubedweller @ 09/07/2011 at 5:12 pm

@The Noise In The Walls: I agree – he came off really well in the interviews. He doesn’t get much time, but he stays on message and finds the right tone. He came across as very serious about this role, and the story. And his anecdotes were interesting, too. Enough already about 300 and his days as an almost-lawyer. These interviewers just need to let him talk about NOW.

curious cat @ 09/07/2011 at 5:27 pm

@N.:

N, thanks for that link. He looks good and acts like himself. I just wonder why these interviewers hash over the same old stuff, getting fired from the law firm, learning to sing for Phantom, etc. It’s like a time warp.

@cubedweller:

cubie, I didn’t see your post until I wrote mine. Bingo.

Angela Pearlygates Montinegro @ 09/07/2011 at 5:51 pm

Now be advised that I am the first one to say that GFW is a few pickles shy of a barrel, but on her account of Framolamdu, she’s right on the old barrel head. Anybody on any of the sites who have followed Moira Fraser’s pattern of stalking Gerry will agree with everything GFW has said, and then some. In fact, GFW was actually being too kind where this person is concerned. I don’t know this person personally, just know of what I have read about her, not here, but on the fan sites, and what she posts on them. GFW is totally right in her assessment.

@Angela Pearlygates Montinegro: Absolutely agree. Framo is just a different kind of crazy than GFW.

@GFW: As always GFW in one post you call him unhappy and a day later he is in Nirvana.

What I mean about Gerry making himself happy is that a lot of people on this website and in his fandom seem to believe that his moodiness could be solved by a woman in his life. I am sure most of those fans believe they are the ones for the job, but anyone who counts on someone else for their happiness is hopeless. (cough…cough)

@cubedweller
Thanks for posting the article.Just been over on WO I think they’ve found a link to the live streaming from there.
He must be on an early flight in the morning to Toronto because according to twitter he is at a dinner @ The Roosevelt Room in Toronto on Thursday Sept 8th,something to do with TIFF.

Maggie P.U. @ 09/07/2011 at 6:23 pm

@147… Angie… I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU AND ALSO GFW on Moira. And if certain people do not like it especially her tough $hit. I am calling it as I have seen it and see it. It is sad on these threads just because certain individuals do not like reading the truth or opinions of others they either tear that person apart or hit the red thumbs-yet it is ok for that person to voice their disdain and opinion. Something is wrong with that picture……

Moira actions are bonafide and validated through people actually seeing it or it is on vid’s… (to name a few times…myself, I have personally asked her when on GALs about certain pics and she swears she knows nothing (and I am looking at the pic on another site) to proove my point…then would find her on another site chatting about that same exact picture she swore she did not see or was aware of…. it is like she and only she can be in the know and a GB expert.) Others have gotten in trouble or banned for the same thing she is doing… it is wrong she is still being allowed to continue as she is and has not to mention she is playing on Gerry’s kindness that he will not be a bu//head…). Now, bring it on….. I am used to the red thumbs and those who can not handle those who speak the truth….. and then by all means go on other sites and you bad mouth her there. Gate swings both ways and I am riding it…..

Peace.

@cubfan34/niknoks or angelsrock
Sorry what is The View and can I get it in the UK?.
Thanks.

@Scarlett:

The View is similar to Loose Women and equally as inane. It’s gaggle of 5 uninformed women giving their opinions on issues they clearly know jack sh*t about.
-
You can watch it on the internet here in the UK, it may be on some obscure cable channel but I’m not sure.

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/07/2011 at 8:17 pm

@niknoks:

Whoa! I like The View! Except for a couple of the women, I love hearing their opinions on current events. I think for the most part they represent what the average woman from different walks of life would think. I don’t think it’s important that you know everything to comment on anything! Barbara Walters is a very smart woman, very highly regarded. Joy has her own talk show and Whoopi and I have similar views. The other two, meh!

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/07/2011 at 8:19 pm

Oh by the way, The View is not on an obscure cable network It’s on local channels, NBC I believe here.

@niknoks
OK.Thanks.LOL : )

@Earlyautumn’s Eve:

Sorry, I can’t stand it. I’ve tried to watch it but I just end up wanting to throw my laptop at the wall. Some of my friends on your side of the pond send me clips here and there if there has been something entertaining or particularly provocative but I can’t watch it on a daily basis.
-
Whoopi is tolerable, Barbara Walters is so irritating, why she feels the need to cut people off and incorrectly clarify everyone else’s remarks is beyond me, I saw a clip of the BristoI PaIin interview and it was cringe worthy. Elisabeth is a dimwit, I’m convinced all the bleach she puts on her hair has addled her brain. Sherri ‘the world is flat’ Shepherd (who has actually blocked me on Twitter) should not be able to talk to the public on that wide a scale until she gets herself a basic education. As for Joy Behar, as a proud liberal myself, there is only one thing that annoys me more than an uninformed conservative and that’s an uninformed liberal.
-
I don’t think you have to know everything to have a view on any issue but you at least have to know something to avoid looking utterly stupid. I absolutely believe everyone has the right to an opinion and the right to express it but I also believe when you’re speaking to a national audience you have a responsibility to be as factual as possible.

When I mentioned obscure cable channels I was talking about here in the UK.

Hey JJers
.
After reading 7 pages of crap from GFW… If you feel the same way I do, just neg her posts and skip. She has gone over the edge and is becoming not only a nuisance but repulsive at the same time IMO. Feeling like it is time to let GFW know how I feel without having to bother sparring with the imbecile.

@curious cat:

I don’t think they do any research for these interviewers or they wouldn’t throw out all the old questions over and over again.

@niknoks: & @niknoks:
.
I’m so with you on that… most annoying women on TV IMO.
.
I would rather have my tooth drilled without anesthesia than to listen to Joy, Elisabeth, and Sherry. They are in the same league with Kathy Lee Gifford IMO… UGH! Barbara has bugged me for years just like Oprah, talking over guests and talking down to the audience because they think we are a bunch of idiots…..
.
Whoopi is awesome because you never know what is going to set her off and she speaks her mind. Kind of a closet fan of Whoopi but not even Whoopi can get me to watch The View. Saw her first several shows and that was all I could take.

@Manny:

I do like Whoopi generally but I think she’s too good for that show, not keen on that ‘valley girl’ thing she does and her defence of Roman Polanski & Michael Jackson p*ssed me off. I also disagree with her on the Mel Gibson ‘r.acism’ issue.
-
I saw a clip of the show after the Bill O’Reilly walk off and the way Barbara spoke to Whoopi and Joy like they were schoolgirls was ridiculous.

realitycheck @ 09/07/2011 at 9:39 pm

Whoopi defended Michael Vick saying it was cultural thing. She should be ashamed of herself.

@niknoks:
.
I missed all that. Like I said I haven’t watched since when Whoopi first joined the cast…

@realitycheck:
.
Really??? OMG!!! Seriously… I’m shocked. I guess I underestimated Whoopi. *shaking head*

@Manny:
.
Sorry… Overestimated…. I need some sleep. :(

@realitycheck: @Manny:

Who’s Michael Vick and what did he do?

@niknoks:
.
Michael Vick, NFL quarterback, owned pitbulls and ran several illegal dog fighting rings. 22 of his pitbulls ended up here in Utah at Best Friends sanctuary.
.
http://football.about.com/od/teamsfalcons/i/Michael-Vick.htm
.
Absolutely appalling IMO.

realitycheck @ 09/07/2011 at 9:55 pm

Michael Vick is an American Football quarterback. He plays for the Eagles. He was running a dog fighting business on his property. It was pretty vile as you can imagine dog fighting to be. You can google him and read the whole story. Ugh.

@niknoks:
.
Here is a story of two of the successes they have had in rehabilitating two of the Vick dogs. They call them Vicktory dogs. :)
.
http://news.bestfriends.org/index.cfm?page=news&mode=entry&entry=ABDDE29F-1231-3F02-49E5CC6413CA0D39

@Manny & niknoks:
The only episode (or partial episode) I’ve seen of The View was the one where Whoopi was still “coming down” from the sedatives she took for her plane trip (and that’s only because it made news headlines). Not sure that any responsible program would’ve let her go on air like that, so it didn’t really entice me to watch any more episodes.
.
I understand that they are trying to make people more informed, but if the informers themselves aren’t that well informed, how screwed up are the opinions of the people watching going to become? It’s a little like Chinese whispers – by the time the message gets to the end of the line it’s distorted beyond all recognition. The idea is there, but not the execution – sadly.

@realitycheck: @Manny:

Dear Lord, that is absolutely sickening and he’s still playing football? The dog fighting is horrific enough on it’s own but he admitted to the torture and killing of up to 8 dogs by hanging or drowning, why is he not still in prison?
-
I hope he’s at least been banned for life from owning any kind of animal.
-
EviI b*stard…..

@Manny:
-
That’s a heartening story that some of the dogs have been rehabilitated and given a second chance at better life.

curious cat @ 09/07/2011 at 10:44 pm

@CorBlimey:

That’s TV.

@niknoks
Yep he cancelled.According to twitter he did a number of radio interviews and then the one with 24/7 @The Four Seasons Hotel.
He was also spotted @Starbucks and somewhere called “potbelly’s”,
must be a restaurant or bar.LOL.

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/07/2011 at 11:41 pm

I knew about Vick and I don’t understand why he’s not in prison either. I’m surprised PETA hasn’t kidnapped him and deballed him by now! LOL!
-
I didn’t hear Whoopi defend Vick either or comment about it being a cultural thing. If she said that then I’ve lost respect for her.
-
I wonder why Gerry missed the Munster appearance? I guess he was over booked maybe. Was that Sam’s church or was it just a random church that booked him I wonder? Maybe he felt in that environment it would be harder to contain his emotions in front of all those people.
-
But I think it was just a matter that he probably said yes to them before he got all the media appearances to promote his movie. Gerry doesn’t know how to say no sometimes. Maybe he’s uncomfortable discussing the religious aspects of the story. I find it strange he would have accepted it in the first place. Hope there’s not much back lash over it. Most Christians feel that what Sam is doing goes against God so who knows. Interesting.

cubedweller @ 09/08/2011 at 12:18 am

@Scarlett: Potbelly’s is a fast-food chain that specializes in sandwiches – nothing fancy.
.
If I had a choice between the Four Seasons Hotel, and fighting rush hour traffic to Indiana … well …
Seriously, this sounds to me like the screening last night went very well and created more buzz than Butler’s people were prepared for. It seems he was running all over town doing radio and tv, and chatting up every entertainment reporter in the city. Meanwhile, back at the mega-church (which is what it is), there was an audience that would probably be very receptive to Sam’s message. So perhaps a smart marketing move to keep Butler in Chicago selling the film, and let Sam talk up his mission to the churchgoers. AND – I wonder how prepared Butler is to have his own spiritual beliefs put under a microscope in a situation like this. (All of this is pure speculation on my part.)

Maybe his team was worried about the potential for f-bombs or threesome comments in front the church members and decided it was best to avoid an awkward situation.

Better he was a no show. Let others play up the religious angle.

The interviews were good, but he can do better than this. He has got great materials in this movie and he needs to speak up. He does that but not enough.
another thing – Gerry enable the interviewers lead him to much, he is playing the good boy and cooperate with them and thats good but I think that when he get the opportunity he can use it to say something that will make the listeners (like me) say – wow this man has something to offer more than his looks and a series of well recorded lines that he memorized at home what to say in the interviews. All his interviews sound the same, if that what’s work for him fine, but it does sound pale, to pale for a movie like MGP, to pale like outstanding man like Sam.
It’s like they ask a question, Gerry answers and there is a moment of silence that Gerry hints that he has finished his part of answerirng the question and there is another question. So is there away for him to do something else within the borders of an interview’s good manners?

to pale FOR (not like – sorry) outstanding man like Sam

I need to be mad at someone – not sure at whom, though.
G. stood up so many people last night at the Family Christian Center in Munster, IN!!!

My gut tells me that he never intended to make an appearance (it’s Munster, IN, for gosh sakes!), and that Sam just used his name to ‘bait’ people to come.

Did G. even know that Sam was doing this? Anyway, I guess I’ll blame it on Sam.

Man, that was tricky of him. I bet people were p.o.’d!

@bystander: 10mins plus in modération?

@legends:
-
That last comment was satirical, right? I have to check because there are some ‘fans’ on this board who would actually make themselves believe that was true.
-

@bystander:

If a comment goes into moderation it will never be seen again…. it is lost for all eternity, it’s like the Bermuda triangle.

@Scarlett: Also a succession of nightclubs, presumably recruiting among the young ladies. See the half-dozen or so posts at WO.

He was at the Paris Club and Cuvee, making it clear what his priorities actually are. If ever it was time for a bit of self-restraint, in the interest of everyone who worked on the film and even his own reputation among the fans, this was it.

bystander @ 09/08/2011 at 6:04 am

@Fabk: my ‘moderated’ comment included reference to keeping this under control. Troubling, if true, if Gerry also cancelled the Christian centre gig. He may scrub up well for interview, but something is amiss.

@Fabk:
He was dancing with Miley Cyrus at the Paris Club. *ugh*

@cubedweller:
I agree with you that letting Sam handle the church-goers and Gerry handle the press would be a good strategy, but this was handled badly. Gerry cancelled at the last minute, after everyone had arrived and were waiting for him. Cancelling under those circumstances comes off unprofessional and is definitely not a good PR strategy. Now it appears Gerry had plenty of time to go club-hopping and dancing with 18 year-old Miley. Pretty disrespectful to those he stood up tonight. jmo

@naomi:

Agreed, the actual reason for missing the appearance could have been perfectly legitimate but then going out clubbing regardless of who he was or wasn’t dancing with just makes GB look like a bit of a d*ck.
He knew full well he would be seen out, only an idiot wouldn’t figure out how that would play in the press. Does he have no media savvy? He only has himself to blame for the bad press that will ensue. Cancelling a church appearance to go clubbing? He really does put the A.S.S in classy sometimes.

bystander @ 09/08/2011 at 7:01 am

@niknoks: as a recent ‘fan’ I’m beginning to wonder what I’ve stumbled across. Misunderstood ,sensitive, charming s***w up, or true colours?

Sam is pulling in the religious population while Gerry is pulling in the rest of the population to see the movie. Sam was a bad a$$ who was a terror on wheels. You can’t expect to draw huge crowds that only consist of the religious people. I watched the interview with Sam and I heard them apologize for the language in the film. That was Sam’s life before he found God. Sam spoke kindly of Gerry saying he is a good actor who got what the movie was about . He said look at Gerry’s eyes in the bank scene, Sam said he felt it in what he saw in Gerry’s eyes. I agree that Sam should deal with the religious side. Don’t forget that this movie is showing a side of Sam that many might not have seen since he found God. Miley’s boyfriend Liam was there with her and Gerry. We don’t know why he cancelled some of the interviews.
I don’t think he did it to be mean or disrespectful to anyone.

@lolita:

Regardless of whether he meant to be disrespectful or not (and I agree I don’t think he meant it), it’s about how it looks.
GB has to take responsibility for how it plays when he cancels an appearance at a church and then is seen out clubbing.
-
If I called my work and said I couldn’t come in and then was seen out clubbing, not only would I lose the respect of my colleagues who had to cover my shift but I would most certainly be facing a disciplinary hearing. It’s what’s known as taking the p*ss.

bystander @ 09/08/2011 at 8:26 am

@niknoks: the guy is enticing, but he has a proven track record of p*ss taking. Perhaps not as committed to this film as we think?

@bystander: I felt the same way just over a year ago. While some aspects of the jet-set lifestyle are enviable (California weather, travel, lots of downtime), the aversion to equal relationships with females, dependence on male ‘mates’ and relentless clubbing with people half his age are increasingly odd. His upcoming ‘charity’ appearances also have a party attached. Perhaps that was the church’s mistake last night. No pick-up opportunities.

@bystander:

He needs to sort himself out, by all accounts he has put in an amazing performance in this film, it would be a shame if he ruined it with his off-screen antics.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/08/2011 at 8:44 am

Yea Lolita & Niknoks, I was very surprized to hear that Gerry did not make it to IN! I am equally sure that Gerry just had to many interviews on his plate and a couple ran over the time limit and he could not get to IN on time. Gerry I know when he starts to promote and interview on any movie he is doing or that comes out ,he does in a day 20 interviews either by phone, live stream, on air, or in studio, I remember when 300 and the Ugly Truth was coming out, Gerry did 70 interviews in 5 days!from New York to the Uk! He landed up back in New York for the Good Morning Show, and just was 10 minutes off the plane and set down and the enterviewer said “Well you have been up all night.lol, Gerry said Yea, thanks for reminding me, lol….All these interviews are put on his plate and then he always has to rearrange or drop a few…It is a time thing, LOL, NOT A GERRY BEING A D**K THING TO his fans! I am sure at some point he will find a way to get to IN. Gerry loves his fans, he usually or if at all possible will arrange something. Sam knows this I would bet on this. LOL,Yes, I am betting also that Gerry knows that the IN fans came out and are disapointed….As for the clubbing,lol, well the clubs are close by, why should he not go out, just because he could not fly to IN. LOL, Yes I can see how it looks, BUT most of the time looks are not what they appear to be…LOL, Gerry is a hard worker and a good soul, I have heard threw the years that he is not disrespectful towards his colleagues and fans. Sam I am sure explained approiatly to the Church about Gerry. I also feel that Sam and Gerry need to have a sit down interview with Sam’s followers, Gerry gets it, he is not bypassing Church by any means. Gerry is a good soul and he is not cruel.lol, Appilonia G. MontiNegro

bystander @ 09/08/2011 at 9:11 am

@niknoks: I do hope so, too.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/08/2011 at 9:13 am

P.S. ON MY POST OF 207! Yes, if I was in IN I would be upset also, but I also know stuff happens…Gerry was here near my home when he finished PTF and he and Freddie were in ARK at KOA Park, I missed my chance to meet him, and I was up set. But I will still susport him as should be! And Yes, did anyone besides me notice that AMY OR ALAN was not with him? As a matter of fact I have not seen both of them with Gerry for a few weeks or so…?If I was on his team I would have set up a scipe quick interview at least, but I guess that was not an option.. Appi

GerrysFantasticWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 9:52 am

If he was out late, he was up early. Not to make excuses but after such an emotionally exhausting day and being single, possibly a little homesick, why not go out and have some uplifting fun? Good on him. But then I’m always a tad biased and can put on a “man’s hat” a lot. Need to, to write my erotica. (blushes)
-
Also wise to stay a safe distance away from the religion part of Sam’s mission. No faulting him there. He may get invites to lots of stuff. My guess is with his “Many thanks, but I’m unable to attend.” He attaches a huge check. Just my hunch. His heart is the size of Texas after all.
~K

GerrysFantasticWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 10:00 am

PS, I think Sam is going to use Gerry’s name as much as he can. He can invite him galore then advertise his expected appearance. Not that there’s anything wrong for this, but this is what I think he’s capable of doing judging from the bit parts I’ve seen in the film… he’ll stop at nothing for his cause.

GerrysFantasticWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 10:05 am

Does the mentally ill dog abuser Michale Vick have Just Jared site? If so his sickening escapades need to either be removed, not on topic at all, or you few need to head over there and discuss this sickmutherfmucker.
~K

@GerrysFantasticWoman:

You are such a moronic hypocrite. You b*tch how you don’t ‘do’ WO or GALS because of how policed it is, then you come here and pontificate about what should and shouldn’t be discussed and what should be removed.
-
Is this deliberate hypocrisy on your part or are you a little bit backwards?

@niknoks:
.
I totally agree niknoks. It is all about how it appears. Whatever the reasons for his no-show, a last minute cancel and then topping that with clubbing smacks of a lack of professionalism. Like I have said over again and again, the Academy will look down their long (read snobby) noses to see if it reflects badly on them.
.
I’m hoping Butler sorts this out. His pleasure could cost him professionally. It would be a shame IMO, if the performance so many of us have been hoping for is overshadowed by a lack of discretion by him.
.
As to Butler speaking to religion… hmmmmm… it would have been entertaining and probably the biggest PR nightmare ever. :)))
.
“I’m a good Catholic boy who snogs randoms in the street and chooses confession over abstinence…” What a mess that could have been.
.
@Appilonia G. MontiNegro:
.
It has nothing to do with having a good soul. It has everything to do with being responsible. Missing the event was forgivable. Missing the event and going clubbing is, well, disrespectful.

GFW still s*cks at socking…

GerrysFantasticWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 10:37 am

Dear Miserable Manny, please stop talking to me. And know this: I have no socks here. Who else do you claim I am here? I don’t understand why you keep harping on this?

@Appilonia G. MontiNegro: Skyping from a night club that would have been interesting.@niknoks: Bi polar or pathological hypocrite be my guess.

cubedweller @ 09/08/2011 at 10:47 am

@Manny: All the good will I had for him yesterday has evaporated. He went clubbing? What a hedonistic jerk. And with Miley Cyrus no less. I could not be more disgusted and disappointed right now. I’m embarrassed that I defended his no-show at the church as a marketing strategy. Didn’t know about the clubbing.
.
This is his last chance, in my opinion, to take back his potential as a serious actor. And to use his position as an actor and producer to tell a strong story, and to use that story for good. It reflects poorly on him as a person, and as a promoter of his own work, to be so dismissive of a commitment.

@Appilonia G. MontiNegro:
.
That is part of his charm I guess.
.
I just think if I was one of the many in that congregation that wanted to hear Butler and I had spent my time to be there, it is hard not to dislike him today when you read he was clubbing rather than keeping a commitment to speak.
.
I’m hoping for great things for Butler but he has a way of really mucking it up. :)

@GerrysFantasticWoman: The bully preaching about bullies. It’s about the optics of the thing. He’s taken helicopters or private jets to soccer games and NBA basketball games.

@niknoks: Hi nik, it looks like K tries to make a provocation here, don’t fall to her trap.

@cubedweller:
.
From your post to Butler’s ears….
.
I’ve been waiting for years for THE performance I saw in the The Jury and Please. This has all the looks of being what we have been waiting for.
.
He has it all in his hands. Yesterday he dropped the ball. Hopefully today Alan is chewing his ass or smacking him in the head. Alan has a lot to loose too. ALAN get our boy back on track.
.
BTW when I read Miley Cyrus I threw up a little in my mouth. Oh the company that man keeps…. Yuck!

If he didn’t actually commit to the event then not his fault. His name gets attached to a lot of things, because it brings attention.

All factors are not known by the posters on the JJ Gerard Butler thread. No doubt the church people were disappointed. But as this is a “mega church”, I don’t think their one purpose in being there was to see Gerard Butler. The speculation as to why Gerard did not make the presentation at the church is just that speculation and some on it is ridiculous…the f-bomb comment for example. I don’t think the venue (aka: a church) had anything to do with him not being there. Parts of Cubedweller’s post #186 might hit the closest to the truth. After all the name of the game is promotion and whatever gets to the word out to the ear of the most population is good strategy.

Myassesment @ 09/08/2011 at 11:10 am

@cubedweller: religion and politics ….hmmm…unless it is part of an actor’s profession….it usually turns off many. How would you like it if Gerard did a movie of an ex-con turned Rabbi or Imam, and then sat thru many interviews with those sects that are not your views?

Smart to keep those views to oneself.

Once again, open judging and critizing about something you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. I watched the lifestream from 7:30 to after 9:30, over 2 hours and I was wondering how many here sat through that live stream during this church service. You can critize him for not driving over 200 miles after he had been promoting since 6 am until after 9 pm. I think he was doing his job to promote this movie to the secular community and Sam was at the church promoting the christian community. Sam did apologize for the confusion with the schedule of interviews that had popped up. I think they were not sure Butler would be able to make it. Sam is a missionary from Munster’s church and felt an obligation to be there. Gerry is one of the producers of this movie and he has a lot more than any of us invested in this film, finanacially, time-wise, and emotionally to not do everything he needs to do to promote it. I guess everyone has an opinion, but a waste of time when you don’t have all the facts.

GerrysFantasticWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 11:15 am

It is wise (I think) to remain separate from Sam’s christian fundraisers. The article mentioned him “raised a devoted Catholic” or something like that to use that.
-
Again, I think he’ll contribute all he can but doesn’t like to be used but kind of has that tie/link with Sam for this movie. Might he be very happy, and can’t wait, to promote Coriolanus to move past this?
-
Gerry can sense being used, bullied too. He’s a gene for it honed from when a kid. And Sam has a purpose (his mission) and isn’t above using people, including Gerry.
-
Again, he’s wise to distance himself from all the religious connotations. He’s no fool. I found nothing wrong with his not appearing.
~K

cubedweller @ 09/08/2011 at 11:19 am

@Manny: BTW when I read Miley Cyrus I threw up a little in my mouth. Oh the company that man keeps…. Yuck!
.
Exactly. And BTW the legal drinking age in Illinois is 21 – what the f*ck is that girl doing in a nightclub? Privileges of the rich and famous I suppose. H*ll I got carded at the Millennium Park beer tent, and no one with half a working eye would mistake me for underage.
.
And as for Alan, I actually think he gave up a long time ago. Butler is going to do what Butler wants to do. Sadly, I don’t think he has anyone in his camp that is making good decisions and plans, and keeping on a master plan. He may have a mob of people on his payroll, but they are hangers-on along for the ride and the perks IMO. Someone with Butler’s history of self-destructive behavior and lack of focus really needs someone on his team who can call him out for bad decisions like last night’s activities. But all he has is his ridiculous club-hopping posse.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/08/2011 at 11:20 am

@Manny: Miley Cyrus,,lol, OMG ,OK, Appi today is throwing the pom poms on the floor, this has made me feel sick! I was praying for an OSCAR for Gerry, this is going to bruse the situation…Sure hope his crew does some retract control…I like most of the JJer’s here, all of you so smart and forthright! I feel stupid about now! Just stupid,,,,Well Manny I loved the Jury as well…Hope someone will pick the ball up…Guess It feels like a bestfriend has done something stupid and I can not help,….Excuse me while I go have a good cry out! Appi

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/08/2011 at 11:25 am

@hmmm hmmm: I am sorry I did not make myself clear, I meant from a room or an area where he could see the audience and they could ask questions that way. Before the he went out, you know MAKE SOME TIME, that kind of thing. Appi

I’m thinking that Gerard had many, many interviews in Chicago scheduled and they probably went into the early evening. To get to that part of Indiana isn’t easy – tons of traffic through South Chicago, etc. Even Sam mentioned at the church service that it had been a “wild day” for Gerry and that he might not make it. Hopefully, he will make it up to that congregation in some way. Also, he wasn’t “with” Miley Cyrus but merely at the same event.

I don’t know which one is more fk’d up. That he is 41(?) and dancing at a nightclub with an 18 year old? What the?? Or the fact that his every move is traced by his fans. And after reading all of GFW’s posts it was giving me anxiety yesterday. There is seriously something amiss and you can also tell that she is Gerrysfantasticwoman.

I say this without any sarcasm whatsoever; people like her are worrisome and make me feel bad/sad/freaked out….whatever.

I will see the movie when it comes out and I will see how he does. Other than that, I’m out.

Myassesment @ 09/08/2011 at 11:31 am

@cubedweller: Gerard is smarter than you all think he is. He adjusts to people for his needs as they do to him. If he has a handful of loyalists, he is a lucky man.

@Myassesment: We are individuals with many views, opinions on many subjects including politics and religion. Different views are what makes things interesting. I think it as been noted by some that is why they are here and not on some fan sites. We will not always agree or disagree with all the post. And sometimes the disagreements get heated. But, the great thing is the “freedom” to agree or disagree on any subject, including one particular….Gerard Butler.

GerrysFantasticWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 11:44 am

GFW is GerrysFantasticWoman spelled out, not an alias! Good Lord don’t be daft! Same account. Same email address. How ridiculous and absurd.
-
I’m in total agreement with Myassessment since they arrived in the forum.

“Miley Cyrus,,lol, OMG ,OK, Appi today is throwing the pom poms on the floor, this has made me feel sick! I was praying for an OSCAR for Gerry, this is going to bruse the situation…”
-
Eh? Feel “sick”?? These are slick clubs where like-kind famous people gather, nothing more. She was most likely all over HIM! Flippin’ Humvees Appolonia–get a grip. Might your expectations to a tad too high? He’s just a man. He was out letting off steam from a trying day that started early but he was not out late, late, late and was up early because he’s not the flamboyant jackass many want to paint him as!!
~K

@Manny: I totally agree with you. I mean, Miley Cyrus… WTF was he thinking?… Hopefully its what Lizzie said…. He wasn’t with Miley Cyrus, they were at the same event.

Just My Opinion @ 09/08/2011 at 11:52 am

But Gerry seems to be very unhappy at the moment.He looked a little uneasy at some of the questions yesterday,especially the ones about having a girlfriend or being single.If he is unhappy then of course he would rather be out than siiting alone getting further depressed or whatever.
Even though his career is on the up with talk of Oscar nomination,he seems to be on a self-distruct mission.Why?.Hopefully once he gets to TIFF and sees what reaction MGP gets he will sort himself out.
Plus he needs to get himself sorted out for Mavericks, its not long before filming starts.

GerrysFantasticWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 11:53 am

@cubedweller: @224, You have GOT to be kidding? What do you expect him to do? A real question.
-
“All the good will I had for him yesterday has evaporated.” Because he went out for a few hours, ate and had some fun! Really? Eh? Your comment was over-the-top judgmental. I think you’re simply jealous of his carefree fabulous rich to the gills lifestyle, that and you’ll never get a chance with him so use him as a whipping post for all that ails you. Solution: choose gratitude.
~K

Where is all this information on Gerard Butler and Miley Cyrus coming from?

GFW and I have gone back and forth many times. I stopped trying to engage her when I realized that she has serious mental problems. And I am not talking about a lonely woman who has way to much interest in an actor, but REAL psychological problems. So trying to reason with her or have a serious discussion is impossible. I try only to say something to her when she really is outrageous or rude. Like the time she said Gerry had to dumb himself down to talk to people on the MGP set.

HW is all about perception. I don’t think the scheduling was his fault. BUT it looks really bad on him. And being with Miley, well that just speaks for itself.

cubedweller @ 09/08/2011 at 12:09 pm

@PsychoB: I stopped trying to engage her when I realized that she has serious mental problems.
.
Precisely. Ignore and thumbs down, repeat as necessary.

Oh dear somethings really get blown out of proportion don’t they?.Gerry wasn’t with Miley she was with her boyfriend Liam somebody.They were just @ The Paris club it was something to do with the opening of a new Topshop or something.
AS for missing the church thing,I’m sure he would have sent his appologies.He had a very busy day yesterday.Aswell as those interviews that we have seen,he did others and numerous radio interviews.The church thing had started whilst he was still doing his interview @The four seasons, he would never of made it on time.
He must be on his way to Toronto soon,as there is some kind of charity dinner tonight @The Roosevelt Room.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/08/2011 at 12:14 pm

@GerrysFantasticWoman: Yes I know that Gerry is not a jackass, He is just Gerry…You know, Young minded, kind hearted and well that is it. My expectations are just that, Mine…Gerry is just a Man , I got that along time ago….I just was amazed at the comments and statements and the this and that. I have always promoted Gerry, always. I am the first in line to want Gerry to have every happiness he can find and have a good time while he is working out and about. So much at stake here. I am not a judgemental or a cruel person, but Yes I have a couple of ideas every now and then. Just thrown a little by his actions and some comments, that is all.
Maybe a new thread is needed lol….Appi

You all have valid points on this topic. Well said.

Allow me to be the devil’s advocate here for a monent.

Maybe Gerard wants to distance himself from Sam’s religious ideology by not appearing at the church service last night? Afterall he is only portraying Sam but doesn’t really share Sam’s religion. It would actually make him look like a hypocrite if he did go to the church service. Instead, he chose to be his quintessential self, clubbing the night away.

Maybe he never committed to the church service? Could it have been Sam and the pastor’s wish that he would be there? They probably prayed that he would come. The positive thinking and miracles you know..

All being said, this clubbing does look like a prime example of Butler’s self-sabotaging behavior. The press junket has only just started and who knows what he may say or do next. Fingers crossed.

GerrysFantasticWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 12:17 pm

Oh flippin’ staplers let’s not make this all about GFW please? And that was not said here!
-
And frankly I would think with his high IQ (and tricky way of talking that doesn’t use one excess word) that the motorcycle-dudes were most a tad difficult for him to communicate with? Dunno. It was just an opinion! He did act as producer on this, no?
-
What psychological problems? LOL When did you earn your degree? You’re judgmental is all.
~K

@Scarlett: Charity thing is Friday night but bet he’s heading for Toronto anyway. Opening night at TIFF is one huge party. U2 will be there.

Gb has not seemed his former loveable rogue self for a while. Even in the competently handled interviews, the spark is absent. Bipolar and ocd have been mentioned, as has hypocrisy. Whatever the truth is, he is doing himself no favours for the future.

@hmmm hmmm
The APJ Event is tomorrow,Friday 9th.Tonight it is something different other stars have been mentioned as going – Ethan Hawke,Adam Greenier (right spelling????) etc.
Should be some pics.

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/08/2011 at 12:37 pm

Excuse me but because he didn’t show up to “church” then no clubbing for him? So he was suppose sit up in a hotel room watching TV all night to pay penance?
-
I think his schedule got too crowded and something had to go and he left Sam in charge of talking about the religious aspects of the movie. Gerry’s not the preacher, he’s an actor.
-
None of us really know what happened. All we got is a bunch of tweets and you know how accurate and reliable those are! LOL!
-
I really didn’t understand the reasons behind the visit in the first place. Gerry is a movie maker and the movie is based on Sam. If the church wants to understand more about Sam and his cause, then why would Gerry need to be there unless like someone said, Sam promised his appearance to attrack the crowd.

@hmmm hmmm
My post disappeared before I’d finished.LOL
It has been mentioned on Twitter.It is @The Roosevelt Room.
http://www.therooseveltroom.ca

GerrysFantasticWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 12:42 pm

Why can’t his calmer demeanor be do to the fact he’s allowed himself to do some maturing and personal inner game growth? Why’s he got to have sadness or medical issues or psychological ones? Maybe he just ended something and is under that cloud, it is only natural. The spark will return. He’s a survivor and knows his self-value well. He’s not a failure. You guys are dour, morbid and frankly reflective of your own miseries if you ask me! Damn, I can feel bad all by myself. This place is getting morose!
-
He’s calmer now for a couple reasons. He’s grown up over the past year. He’s confident of the project. He’s a firm believer in Sam’s mission, if not the method. He knows how to spin a negative question and work that magic because it’s how he deals (now) with his life.
-
Get a sense he knows when to turn off any incoming negativity (even from me when I mean well in need of help or guidance because I know my own answers) and I’m beginning to admire him more and more for that.
-
What I admire more than anything is his loyalty to those who bring much to his life. He never fails them. He’s always there for them. Be it his mom or an actor from another movie. If they reach out for in some need he is on it in a snap.
-
I just think hanging out with actors all the time, or the amount of time he does, would be a bit of a drain. He has to be “Gerard Butler” with them.
-
For me I like the homebody Gerry. The reader. The nester. The shopper. The geek. The man who likes food, and favorable food! And stimulating conversation with all classes of people. The pet owner in him is who I adore because I raised two to ripe old ages and knows the cherishes the unconditional love. He needs it. He kept her when he didn’t have to. Brings her into his life when he can.
-
That’s the true mirror to his soul: how he treats his family, friends, co-workers, parents and pup. And trust me, he does all well holding anyone he cares for treating them like rice paper.

@GerrysFantasticWoman: I AGREE WITH THIS….This is a really smart and wonderful post GFW, It says it all. Appi

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 12:59 pm

I can’t wait to see The Artist. I put up trailers at my blog constantly. Many of my readers see the same films so we talk about them there.
-
Appilonia, feelings are contagious. Beware!
~K
who really don’t think planned on going but if they’re reading it isn’t because of any negative reasons but like Eve says, he’s an actor, not a preacher and what someone else said about not revealing any of his private notions regarding his religious beliefs who also thinks he’s personal issues with his birth religion but it’s a constant and he likes constant unmoving things plus he’s a man who needs forgiving a lot and what better religion for that than Catholicism? LOL
-
Which reminds me of this comment reply (by me) from my story…
-
Protecting a flock is not easy for any shepherd.
-
Far from any village and faced with predators, shepherds would gather branches and thorn-bushes to create a “keep”. Stacking the branches, they’d form an enclosure, a wall woven of thorns to protect their sheep. With the sheep safely gathered, the shepherds would lie down in the doorway. They laid their lives on the line–literally–as one last tool of protection.
-
He has journeyed through the wilderness, he camped far from any village and has faced unknown personal dangers. Where could he go for protection? For peace. For knowledge?
-
When you, or someone you love, needs protection and we don’t have the right tool, remember grace.
-
The bread of angels fall from heaven, and flocks of quail fly in to feed us too.
-
How do you protect someone you love?

Hmm??? Moderated?

The church event was in MUNSTER, Indiana not Muncie.
Munster is just 30 miles from Chicago

(WO just clarified this.)

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 1:02 pm

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/08/2011 at 1:07 pm

@No news:

” I guess everyone has an opinion, but a waste of time when you don’t have all the facts.”

-
Absolutely! Way to put it in one sentence! Why critisize him by jumping to conclusions from a bunch of tweets? Most likely many of those church attendees never heard of Gerry! His movies have’t exactly been “Christian” oriented.
-
And just because Cyrus was present at this event doesn’t mean Gerry was “with” her. For cryin’ out loud! You people latch on to everything!

**

@Tina:

“and you can also tell that she is Gerrysfantasticwoman.”

-
Oh really? G–errys F–antastic W—oman? Duh? You just now got that? LOL! But with a moniker as such shows her delusional mindset!

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/08/2011 at 1:19 pm

All the “sour grapes” are out in force today! Since you have absolutely no chance in ever having the man for your own, make sure you pull out every negative or possible flaw that pops up to make yourself feel better about it! LOL! I truly feel for people like this! They are in a constant tug of war with their emotions. They are drawn to him passionately yet repelled by things that don’t live up to their expectations. They cannot either accept him as he is or just let him go! Must be torture!

Thanks Eve.. I asked where all the info about Gerard Butler and Miley Cyrus was coming from. I was curious. You answered indirectly, but I appreciate the info. From what you said there are a bunch of tweets. I asked a question and received the thumbs down, but no answer. I am not understanding the mood of the board. You seem to the voice of reason today. Thanks.

@ Earlyautumn’s Eve: I’m cracking up! That’s too funny. I think I was just concentrating more on her craziness than anything else. And maybe it has something to do with recently going from a brunette to a blonde.;-) But ya, “GFW” or “Gerrysfantasticwoman” or who the f’k ever is too much insanity for me to handle.

And that’s great if he wasn’t doing the Miley Cyrus thing…but isn’t he always at clubs with young people? Ok, not sure why I care. I have no expectations for someone I don’t know (was just grossed out by the thought) and I gotta a man. ;-) I just thought this board was hilarious until it got scary.

hmmm hmmm @ 09/08/2011 at 1:38 pm

@Scarlett: There is no listing for anything tonight at the Roosevelt Room at that link you provided. Gerry is expected at a thing there on Saturday night. The APJ thing Friday is at Japanese restaurant Ame. Party on. Let’s Sushi Roll.

Red Dress @ 09/08/2011 at 1:40 pm

Gerry canceled his appearance at the CUT Film Fest a few years back at the last minute and didn’t come through on his cherished charity Kids Kicking Cancer last year. Nothing new for him. He gets away with it. People made excuses for him than, too. Just saying.

Who wishes GFW would take her meds?

GFW will keep spamming the board no matter what people say to her. Just wait, she has just shown a bit of her crazy.

I personally don’t think Gerry had plans on going to the church. If he really believes what he has said in the past Sams beliefs are not Gerry’s. But if those people were led to believe Gerry was going to be there, whether by his people or someone else it is his problem. Public perception is important or they wouldn’t spend millions creating an image. What GFW or I think about this incident doesn’t really matter. What does matter is public perception, if the story is picked up by any media. Gerry was billed to be at a church and did not show up, but was seen hanging out at bars. Most of the general public wouldn’t bother looking for a reason or analysing why. They would form their opinion based on that alone.

You will never see someone win an oscar who doesn’t take acting seriously. The academy isn’t looking for someone who wants fame and sees acting in movies as a way to get there. And that is the kind of image that Gerry’s getting. It doesn’t mean he will never get a oscar. What HW loves more is someone who has hit rock bottom and redeemed themselves through their work. It just means we might have to wait. I hope if that happens he doesn’t look as torn up as Mickey Rourke when he accepts his oscar.

And as far as Miley goes, well I’ve never seen any Oscar hopefuls who would be caught dead in a bar with 18 year old child actors. Again a perception issue.

This whole thread is getting bizarre. GB cancelled an appearance at a church and went out clubbing, which some including myself have called unprofessional and I stand by that. I’ve defended his ‘bachelor’ ways in the past and will continue to do so, I have no problem with him living the life of a single man, after all, he is single.
-
However, if you make a commitment elsewhere, I think you should honour it, particularly since it’s only 30 miles away. I would hold anyone and everyone to the same standards.
-
(I’m not buying the Miley nonsense, she was apparently there with her boyfriend, I think that’s people trying to stir the pot.)
-
Now, other people have come to his defence and accused others, including myself of jumping to conclusions or being jealous of his lifestyle , it can’t possibly be GB’s fault, they don’t know why, it just can’t be. However, these same people have no problem in jumping to conclusions and blaming Sam for the whole incident. Sam’s using him, Sam said GB was going to be there when he wasn’t, Sam’s fault this, Sam’s fault that. No hypocrisy there at all.
-
What we know is that it was announced he was going to be there, then it was announced he’d cancelled, then he was spotted out clubbing, multiple sightings, not just one random one. I’ve drawn my own conclusions to that as have others but can the petty ‘they’re only jealous they can’t have him’ remarks cease, it’s been done to death and established as BS.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/08/2011 at 2:28 pm

Hey JJer’s , I just found another cute interview with Gerry! go to google and put in Gerard Butler Sept,8,2011 interviews or WCIU.COM/YOUAND ME,,,It is a cute interview Gerry talking about MGP. Appi

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 2:36 pm

Why does everyone presume Sam is upset?
-
Maybe Gerry’s ‘people’ got in touch saying he’d not be able to make, thanks for the invite, Then he went about his own business and did his thing guilt free?
-
Maybe Gerry had a flight today and was simply too tired to trek it to his event and back that might cause him to miss it? I get a sense he’s headed up to Canada… right now, literally.
-
Many things get announced (prematurely and without attendance confirmations to bring in people) then cancelled. So what? He doesn’t have to do anything he doesn’t want to.
-
I’m still banking on his not wanting to get attached to the religious angles “strings” of this film for personal reasons. And that’s his prerogative.
-
He made the film… for pennies on the dollar for so it could be made. He kept his end. His job was to “become” Sam, make the movie and promote it. He’s under no obligation to Sam or his mission, none. Business is business. Gerry did not become “born again”, Sam did.

angelsrock @ 09/08/2011 at 2:44 pm

Here’s a few more stills from the movie:

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=81852

I don’t know anymore than the rest of you, but based on twitter timelines, Gerry was still doing an interview at Fourseasons at 9:00pm that will be aired next week and the twitter sightings at the club were after l:00am.

Appilonia G. MontiNegro @ 09/08/2011 at 2:49 pm

@angelsrock: Thank you really nice pics,,Appi

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 2:52 pm

@angelsrock:
Thank you anglesrock!
-
Damn he has that greasy sweaty slept in his clothes after a binge biker look down pat doesn’t he? And in all that humid heat as well? What a miserable (conditions-wise) film to make. First hillbilly trailers in Michigan to the nose clogging dust of Africa! Not to mention the smell of it! I read as soon as the plane cabin opens you smell it.
~K

@niknoks:

Was it cancelled or was it simply too late to arrive there before the second service was finished?

I presume that the sighting at the club was much later than the service ended, which would indicate to me that there perfectly legitimate reasons for not making it to the service, i.e. doing more interviews which ate into the time allotted for the service.

@FYI:

I don’t know, I don’t what the timings of the events were, there’s a lot of contradictory information flying about.
-
I said in my very first post on the ‘cancellation debacle’ there may well be legitimate reasons for the cancellation but it just doesn’t look good when you’ve cancelled a work engagement and you’re seen out clubbing. In the business of show, perception is everything.

@niknoks:

Too many are too quick to make judgements without knowing the full circumstances.

Red Dress @ 09/08/2011 at 3:39 pm

Phone calls are always nice when an appearance can’t be made. Takes the heat off and is just a nice thing to do, There is no excuse for not being polite when you’ve allowed your name to be used as a draw. JMHO of course.

@FYI:

That’s true, but it’s equally if not more unfair to blame Sam for the whole thing as some on here have done.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 3:54 pm

Yo, Red Dress, how can you make such presumptions? You know stuff?
~K

@niknoks: Well dear, I’m afraid that you just stepped into the twilight zone of Gerry’s world – the gap between the simple facts and the interpretation we give them. It’s up to you to decide if you want to post your opinion here and when you do it you need to be prepared to hear all kinds of stuff. That’s why I stopped making comments about facts that are being trown here. I comment about thing that I see in my own eyes like the interviews he did yesterday.
Anyway – don’t let anyone decide for you whether you are jelous of Gerry or not. The fact that he is free and can go out every night doesn’t make his life better than your life or mine. Saying that will come out of someone who is either arrogant or have a superficial observing about life.

The guy sure does nightclubs I think at his age he should calm down a bit also I think he loves meeting new ppl and new girls then gets bored and moves on like a gypsy talented actor though

Loves nightclubs I meant sorry

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/08/2011 at 4:22 pm

@PsychoB:

“Gerry was billed to be at a church and did not show up, but was seen hanging out at bars”
-

You have no idea what the timeline was or what his “billing” was supposed to be. It could have been a tentative thing and got turned in to something official.
-
You’re one of the few here who do this. Hardly ever a word of positive but just dig for the crap. I think I’m more apt to go with the statement below.
-

” based on twitter “timelines”, Gerry was still doing an interview at Fourseasons at 9:00pm that will be aired next week and the twitter sightings at the club were after l:00am.”
-
This sounds more like it. But carry on with your negative ciritism of Butler because you’re all such good fans! That is if it makes you feel better! LOL!

**

@niknoks:

“but can the petty ‘they’re only jealous they can’t have him’ remarks cease, it’s been done to death and established as BS.”

-
Oh really and who established it as such? It’s been going on for a long time so I don’t think so! Everyone is entitled to their opinions, true, but no one has the right to tell anyone to “cease” with them because someone else has determined something as BS. Even I say to carry on with it if it gets ‘em through the night and I will keep calling it sour grapes! LOL!

*sour grapes*

I think GB is one hell of a lucky guy he has such loyal and over the top protective fans that he can literally get away with murder how does he do it

angelsrock @ 09/08/2011 at 4:29 pm

@No news:

Thanks. I don’t think Gerry premeditated missing the church gig. He fell into a timing situation with all the interviews in Chicago. He was supposed to be at the 5:00 or the 7:00 church service. That would have been tough. Sam and Jason were there and I’m sure did a fine job. It may have been decided that if Gerry could make it, great; otherwise Sam and Jason would take care of business. Gerry is trying to sell the movie the only way he knows how.

@Earlyautumn’s Eve:

Of course you’re entitled to your opinion but insulting people who have the ‘audacity’ to disagree with you is petty, especially when it was only a few days ago you were calling someone else out for doing exactly the same thing.

“but it just doesn’t look good when you’ve cancelled a work engagement and you’re seen out clubbing. In the business of show, perception is everything.”

-
Perception is in the eyes of the beholder and not everything. So what was he supposed to do? He never cancelled because he claimed to be ill and showed up out and about perfectly fine! LOL! He cancelled because of a conflict of other commitments running too long. It said that in a couple of places. What’s your point?

“Too many are too quick to make judgements without knowing the full circumstances.”

Sounds like the thing he was at later where Miley was was one of those things that you hear about where several celebs will be and it might be a good place to go and rub elbows. Just because Miley’s name was mentioned doesn’t mean there weren’t other celebs about. As usual, you all are believing things that are used to create drama or sensationalilze something. You have to take it all with a grain of salt.
-
But I did pick up on something yesterday during his interview on Windy City Live and that was he seemed a bit defensive when asked about his “abs”. I think I understand a bit more now that he’s trying to live up to that image that people expect him. I hope he learns to get past that. He has claimed he’s not the “Phantom” well he’s not “Leonidas” either and shouldn’t try to fit other people’s ideas.
-
I wish I could have a nice fireside chat with him sometime. I just fear that he doesn’t have enough people around him to tell him those things. They’ve all got their own agendas to tend to.

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/08/2011 at 4:44 pm

@Ellie:

I don’t see that he’s done anything even close to “murder” as you put it! I just believe in giving someone the benefit of the doubt. What’s your problem? You come here to critisize those of us who are willing to not jump to conclusions? What makes YOU so sure he’s done anything wrong here? Give me proof please. Don’t just sit there and slag him and his fans with some gossip. Makes you look gullible!

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/08/2011 at 4:51 pm

@niknoks:

Who have I insulted? I think you’re blowing this out proportion. You gotta cob up your butt lately? If so, don’t take it out on me because I have a difference of opinion. YOU’RE the one that called my remarks “petty” because I see some of these repeated posts that go on and on everytime something that even remotely looks negative coming from him is twisted and blow out of shape as just sour grapes. What else would they be? You studied psychology. You should understand this better then most!
-
That’s my opinion. I’m entitled to it, as you are to yours but don’t go accusing me of insulting anyone because I don’t see that I’ve done that and if I have, show me and I’ll apologize…..maybe! Depends who it is! LOL!

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/08/2011 at 5:08 pm

I’m getting negative thumbs for my opinion of giving him the benefit of the doubt. Again, just sour grapes! LOL! Maybe they should change the down thumb color from red to purple!

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/08/2011 at 5:11 pm

And what’s funny is anglerock is expressing my feelings exactly but yet she gets thumbs up! Sounds more like a personal thing to me. LOL! It’s never going to stop and some people are never going to grow up and stop acting like a child on the playground!

@Earlyautumn’s Eve: @Earlyautumn’s Eve:

I’m not criticising him or slating him just stating the image he portrays and I ask the same question to you what proof do you have to jump to his defence!! Yes you can give him the benefit of the doubt please proceed but others can have their opinion too!! And as for getting away with murder that was meant as sarcasm! I maybe completely wrong or you could be wrong aswell but I do think it’s a bit pathetic and ridiculous that every bit of negative you hear of him you turn it into something totally acceptable and cover up for him like he can do no wrong

@niknoks: Nik, I couldn’t reply earlier to your post because I left for work. I understand what you mean about what his absence can be seen as. I just wonder why Sam wasn’t scheduled with more tv or radio interviews with Gerry. I am not blaming Sam in any way for whatever the schedules were. I just think if Sam could have made some of the TV appearances with Gerry then they could have spot lighted more on MGP then Gerry’s abs or who he was dating. I think Sam and Gerry are selling the movie the best way they both know how to. Sam seems so proud of the way that Gerry has portrayed him in the movie and Gerry speaks very highly of the man that Sam is and the things that Sam has accomplished.
As far as the Miley and the club outing. Miley came to a club with Demi when they were doing a movie the same time in Detroit as when Gerry was filming MGP. Remember the karoake party that Michelle, Gerry, Demi, Miley came to. She is a young adult now who lives in a fast world. I know she said she had a crush on Gerry and was thrilled to meet him. I just think he was unwinding from the day he had and I don’t think he meant to slight anyone, but this is my opinion and I am not trying to change anybodies view of the situations that unfolded or how they perceived it.

@Earlyautumn’s Eve: I like stated….you are the voice of reason today, but at this point, I think it is futile to make an argument for what might have occurred last night with Gerard Butler. Others have made their minds up and there is no changing it. What makes sense to some, makes no sense to others. I guess they have never worked under conditions where the daily “to do list” has to be changed or delegated to someone else. I do look at the business side…anyone that reads my posts pretty much knows this. It may sound harsh, hard nosed, unsympathetic but sometimes that is just the way it is. That is my life experience.

Don’t let all of this madness get to you! I figured it is the same people under different monikers. So many socks going on lately.

Ever notice how when a certain name is gone for a period of time, so is other names for the same period of time. Trust you me it is the same person using socks to validate themselves, and to bash others. There are many here using socks. Don’t worry about the thumbs down it’s not that serious!

Myassesment @ 09/08/2011 at 6:07 pm

@LLL: Deleted my post but stressed freedom of speech? Interesting and crafty jj.

There were numerous tweets from The Paris Club last night stating that Gerry and Miley were there. One mentioned her BF was also there. Another said they saw Gerry dancing with Miley. I was not trying to imply Gerry was hooking up with Miley. I was simply commenting on the optics of Gerry dancing with an 18 year-old pop tart at a club. I think it looked bad.

No more proof than you have to turn him in to disrespectful jerk for not showing up to some church meeting. All I’m saying is he didn’t do anything so bad. Some of you are so anal retentive it must hurt to sit down! LOL!
-
Look if you don’t like Butler, just have the guts to say so. Don’t sit behind your computer and jump to conclusions about everything he does and try to convince other people he’s an a hole. He must be doing something right or he wouldn’t be where he is.

Thanks, LLL, and you’re right. I don’t think we’re trying to convince anyone that he’s an angel so much as that he’s not the devil in blue jeans that some see him, and not in the good way! LOL!

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/08/2011 at 9:18 pm

@Truth:

No worries, Truth. I know exactly who it is. Things never change. There’s a few people here who have been on these boards at JJ a long time because they can’t post on the fan sites (obvious reasons). So they get a kick out of running him down here and making jokes. They have a rabid hatred of Gerry’s so called “phannies” whom they see as a bunch of idiots who refuse to see the real Butler. Of course, they’ve all got him pegged, right? LOL! Whatever!

May God Bless yoou all! @ 09/08/2011 at 9:22 pm

“Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls forth each of them by name.” Isaiah 40:26a (NIV)

@Earlyautumn’s Eve:
.
I’m just curious as to which poster you are referring?
.
I can see some of your points Eve but some just don’t make sense IMO.
.
My only point is that if I was one of the people that had taken the time to go and see Gerry at the church and then I go home and find out he was clubbing due to the article in the Tribune, it wouldn’t matter to me the timeline as most won’t even look to see the timeline. All they would know is that he was supposed to be at the church that night and instead he was in Chicago clubbing.
.
I don’t know why he didn’t show up at the church and it may have been totally legitimate, they will only look at it in general terms and may see that he picked one over the other since most won’t hunt through Twitter to get a grasp of where he was when and why. It is all about perception when you are talking the general public IMO.
.
I just got home from work so I need to catch up on the new thread…

Chicago Tribune @ 09/08/2011 at 10:12 pm

@Manny: Mr. Butler’s no show was reported at the same news site it was announced he was coming. It referred to being delayed as a result of media interviews in Chicago.
http://www.nwitimes.com/news/local/lake/munster/article_68903d8b-1b03-55cc-8744-a19d656dfe81.html
I don’t believe nightclubbing with Miss Cyrus would be covered by the NWI Times.

@Chicago Tribune:

Thanks for the article. Appreciate your time. :)

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 09/09/2011 at 12:05 pm

How can saying this get 7 thumbs down?

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 09/08/2011 at 4:23 pm

Thumb up Thumb down -7

He’s an incredibly giving man. And in spite of incredible accomplishments, he is aware he is not the center of the universe.

Astounded. Some real jealous [read: sicko] Butler fans on here. Nailed.
~K same like I did Red Dress and .net (both over done by bitterness and loss of traffic)

Gerry seems to be such a nice person, not arrogant like some show biz types at all. Despite his amazing looks, hot career etc. he still manages to remain down to earth in interviews.
