    Michelle is such a cutie and she has high praise for Gerry and he of her. I think you will see just how good they were in this movie. Gerry my dear you picked a winner with MGP. I can’t wait to see it.
    Have a wonderful night JJer’s and a happy weekend.

    Red Dress Says:

    Gerry looks good even though he is too thin. He is thinner than he was in the Red Death scene in Phantom. It wouldn’t be so bad if it was a natural thinness, but it’s not. I bet he is hungry all the time. I think Hollywood is demanding that men be lollypop heads, too.

    Did anyone see Daniel Graig in Cowboys and Aliens? You can see his shoulder bones he is so thin. Surprising because I can’t imagine what he or Gerry looks like off camera without that artificial 10 pounds.

    Nice to see Michael Shannon, he is a very good actor.

    Wish The Machine Gun Preacher a big success as it deserves it!

    Gerry looks great and so are the rest of the cast and director and the musician. Can’t wait to see it.

    He is thinner but I have come to accept this new Gerry look. It’s fine with me. Still a handsome devil.

    I agree Red Dress..
    I think Hollywood is too weird for words..I mean..getting men to lose weight as well..It’s bad enough with the women there…These people are hungary all the time..and for any of them who claim otherwise are lying through their teeth..

    I think Gerry looks okay but afew pounds on the man wouldn’t hurt…Still love ya Gerry :)..I wish you much success with this film!! So far it’s getting very positive reviews :) Best Always!!!and chin up :) :)

    curious cat Says:

    Know sumpin? all the talk about thinness. I think GB looks fine. When you see him stripped down you realize he was carrying a lot of fat before. Sorry, ladies. Since 300 he didn’t look too lean. That #2 picture here is breathtaking. Anyhow, it’s his business what he weighs and why. He looks as old as he is and great.

    is it the fact that he’s aged horribly or are you a Soundgarden fan and are glad to see him? I thought he was a god at one time, but neither his present music or looks has passed the test of time…..
