Gerard Butler: 'Coriolanus' Press Conference!

Gerard Butler and Ralph Fiennes smile at a press conference for their new movie, Coriolanus, at the Toronto Film Festival on Monday (September 12) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

    @sj: i think he’s making up for the lack of hair on his head. Butlers hair looks funny but he still looks good.

  • Courtney

    I can’t wait to see the movie either and you forgot to mention Vanessa Redgrave and also that Rafe isn’t only the star of the film but the director. Mr Finnes has also been on screen with Redgrave before 2005′s White Countess which also starred her late daughteer Natasha Richardson and late sister Lynn

  • DaphneKB

    Can you see a bunch of Gerry’s hair “flying”? Hahahah. Like that he doesn’t wanna be perfect, but wants to be a casual person. GO GERRY!!!

    Poor guy looked exhausted this morning, but always handsome and sexy! I’m on Gerry overload the past few days! Love it! Still can’t get enough!!!

  • Pure Beauty

    She is…

  • Oh dear

    See a tweet to Lainey gossip on Twitter – according to someone who seemed to be around (see her earlier messages) GB was with a ‘working girl’ at last night’s late party. Not sure what that means.

  • bystander

    @omg: Ralph has this hairstyle because he’s playing Prospero in the Tempest in London.

  • bystander

    @Oh dear: in the UK it means prostit*te, but I’m hoping she just meant event hostess!

  • sweetestone2

    Gerry has looked so amazing over the past few days and happy at tiff…hope this movie is received as well as MGP the very very best to all!

  • Scarlett
  • Courtney

    what like the Happy Hooker haha. in the case of Redgrave her career has come full circle with this film her first role on stage after graduating from Stage School in 1958 was Rosalind in Shakesphere’s As You Like It and now nearly 54 years later she’s playing Volumina in Coriolanus . Can’t wait to see the movie later this fall

  • Scarlett

    Pic of Gerry out & about today.

  • “Ava”

    Ha-ha Scarlett, Gerry looks like he knows his way around!
    He’s another screening tonight, then maybe a good night’s sleep? I’m like totally obsessed that he rest, but I don’t think it possible. He is so pumped. All I know is more photos! :)

  • GFW

    Like evil copies its prey, Gerry copies the best with those he respects, in this case the entire cast of both films. I also think he enjoyed making Playing The Field. All his movies have messages, and the message remains the same.

    just so you know-”Ava” is GFW

    @.net, your obsession with me is frightening. It is.

    *giggling*

    The point of being discreet with a working girl is not to let people know she is a working girl.
    .
    Poor Georgia/Brooke – seems Butler is so taken with her he actually is paying for sex with someone else…

    *just giggling*

    These women are 45+. I have never seen women push and run so fast. And argue in line over who was blocking whom.

    I believe Dear Frankie got a standing ovation at the Ischia Film Festival years ago. I think it was Ischia. I don’t feel like looking it up.

    I’ll be very happy to see Coriolanus. I am a big Shakespeare fan, so am excited to see Gerry in the movie. The fight scene in the play itself is homoerotic or so many lit scholars claim. I only bring it up since Gerry made this remark at the press conference this morning. I wondered if Ralph would have it come through.

    “The fight that we had, which to this day remains the closest thing to a homosexual experience that I’ve had,… ,” Butler said.

    Oh so the phannie bus did make it to TIFF then??? ROTF
    .
    Butler must be so proud of his dignified phannies. I’m surprised they weren’t mud wrestling in the aisle for seats. LMAO

  • Manny

    Seems Gerry is either being his normally tardy self or trying to make a grand entrance…

    First review I could find of the movie… warning it gives away the opening of the movie and gives MGP a “C” rating…

  • MGP review

    This is indiewire’s take on the meaning of standing ovations at TIFF:
    “Every film at TIFF gets a standing ovation. TIFF (and most film festival) audiences are Trained fu’cking seals and if celebrities are in the room they LAP up that shi’t up like its manna from the skies.
    God, please never ever use a TIFF audience as a baraometer for anything. I grew up in Toronto, and over several years I’ve seen them rave over some of the worst shi’t possible and I’ve seen them rave over some of the greatest films too. I’m not sure they know the difference.

    Not surprising, The Playlist at Indiewire also gave a thumbs down review of MGP at the same link.

  • http://Sjvp31@yahoo.com Bullies suck!

    Manny what you think and say speaks volumes of what you are. You’re a bully and should stay away. If you could for once say something positive you would be ok but right now & for SO long have been A sorry excuse of a human being. It makes me sick to think people as sad as u have to live everyday angry. You must make people in your close proximity Hate you. Please get help! MGP is about what God’s love can do to one man. That man Sam Childers in turn wants to save children and you sit there doing this! Hating. That’s all u do. Get off of here and do something else! Get ur black heart cleaned out!

    Have a nice day GFW. :)

    I love this site-really do. I love seein pics of Gerry but there’s one thing that bugs me everytime they call him ‘Stud!’ Now I know its only my opinion n the beauty of opinions is they aren’t right or wrong but I really don’t like that word 4 him. It makes him sound like some sort of player n bad person. Again its only my opinion but I’d like not 2 think of him that way. Mayb if they jus called him ‘Heart throb’ or ‘dreamboat’ Not my ideal choice but I think its better than stud! Jus sayin if anyones lstening. Take care n stay safe all. Xxx

  • kelly

    oh more pics gerry looking good ralph im not crazy about the beard but understand its for a movie but man just love the smile on gerrys face

  • curious cat

    @Bullies suck!:

    Oh, SHUT UP, bag of wind! You know nothing about Manny! Is this OBND perhaps, under yet another new sock?

  • curious cat

    Manny didn’t write the film reviews! She reports the good, the bad and in between. It’s interesting to see how reviewers’ opinions differ. What’s with the personal attack on Manny?

  • curious cat

    @kel:

    i object to ALLl those glib terms, stud, hottie, beefcake, heartthrob, etc. etc. One person posted once that it was nice to read a story about a male movie star without ANY of those terms being used.

  • Cara

    Gerry should enjoy the success of these two movies. I wish him luck and hope he continues to get movies that can showcase his talent but he does love the Rom Com too. Don’t forget he also helped to raise a lot of money for APJ and Haiti schools.

  • Manny

    @curious cat:
    .
    You make me giggle. OBND was probably one of the stampeding herd at the premiere. LMAO

  • dellissima

    Gerry deliziose le tue rughette, non fartele togliere per favore
