    Gerard Butler on Howard Stern at 8 AM hour Wednesday morning -9/14 discussing #machinegunpreacher @DeborahGGFilmz

    Howard Stern Show just screams MGP promotion, doesn’t it…!

  • Can’tGetEnough

    @Nuts: God help him!!!!

  • Ziggy

    He’s so stupid, he’s annoying. Maybe his new movies are good, but as actor? I can’t stand him.

  • Ziggy

    @cupcake:

    Michelle is MARRIED!

  • http://Sjvp31@yahoo.com Congratulations!

    He looks AMAZING! His mom must be so proud of him having the courage to portray such an amazing and profound Mr. Childers. She must worry about the threats, too. God bless him and his family!

  • CorBlimey

    @Can’tGetEnough:
    He really does, doesn’t he? Cr@p. I’m back to melting when I look at him, which is just pathetic considering I’ve never met the man. I think I need to stop coming here, for my sanity. Also, it’s ruining my chances at finding someone because I’m not sure anyone else that I meet will ever look that good to me! Very, very sad. :P
    .
    .
    So. Farewell to you all – if you see me back in here again, tell me to fvck off and get a life. I’m serious! It was lovely knowing you all, and if anyone wants to keep in contact, I’m going to take a leaf out of Manny’s book and leave an email address here. Thank you for all the fun and laughter, and all the gorgeous (and occassionally not so gorgeous) photos of Gerard that you guys took the time to hunt out and post. I appreciated it very much. Love to you all. R.

Manny – I thought I had a redirect set up from this email to my normal email but it obviously didn’t work, because I’ve just found your message to me from April sitting in there unread – I apologise! I’m not especially savvy when it comes to technology. Forgive me, and I’ll email you anyway, in case you don’t see this message.)

    Adieu!

    @Corblimey, will miss you girl and your wonderful sense of humor. You always gave me a giggle with your take on Gerry and his antics.
    God Bless you and wish you the best the world can offer.♥♥

    Still interested in seeing his upcoming movies and I like that he is a goof. (being dorky and goofy is the best type of sense of humor IMO). And of course he is good-looking. But he is the type of man who only likes the start of things. From the hearsay I have read of course. So if it were me, I would be leery of him and I would keep far away if I were any of you ladies who adore him. If you are ever in his presence that is. Again, JMO.

  • Truth

    @T.:

    I was just coming in to say oh my goodness at all the new threads! Then I read your post. Please explain what you mean by “start of things”.

  • T.

    Like he only prefers the beginning of things (with women). When it is new and exciting. It seems that way to me anyway.

  • cubedweller

    @CorBlimey: Sad waves to CB – we’ll miss you! Take care – it’s been fun. I hope you meet someone wonderful who will give you much love and laughs. And if he’s hot, so much the better.

    Latest from Kaiser – including a longer version of the Diesel story.
    .
    “…Here’s something that non-fans of Gerard Butler don’t understand: the fans don’t care. We don’t care that he’s kind of gross, or that he looks like the kind of guy who won’t remember our name in the morning. We don’t care that he’s a wh0re who will literally bone anyone and anything. We don’t care about his moobs, really, and we don’t actually care that much about his recent, extreme weight loss. We just like him. He’s a goofy, funny dude. He’s kind of crazy and sweet and we honestly feel like The Butler wouldn’t judge us. So stop regaling us with stories about how The Butler is constantly surrounded by women and how he’s always on the prowl, no matter where he is. We get it. He’s a slvt. We still like him….”

    It might be me but in this pick he looks like a lost Gibb brother

    But the rest of the picks I think he looks a lot better than he has been

    He has the perfect hair to play Beethoven.

    Oh and if a comment on that CB thread looks very familiar to mine (Melissa), it’s because it’s me! I never use my real name on these sites, if that makes me bad or weird, oh well. These are the two sites I love (along with archaeological.org, don’t judge me) to look at when I am bored. Which has been a lot lately.

  • GFW

    He’s a serious New Yorker look here. Love it. Don’t see him in black too much. Nice change. She looks terrific. Such great things happening in his life just now, and all deserving of course.

  • Earlyautumn’s Eve

    I’ll just say “so long” for now, Cor! Hope you check in now and then!

  • Dragonette

    Looking good, as usual. Gerry seems to be quite comfortable with Diesel’s aesthetic.

    @cubedweller: Kaiser is totally on-point with that. BTW what is up with some of these articles not even getting the name of the movie right? “Machine Gun Creature”? I saw another that called it “Machine Gun Assassins” o_O SERIOUSLY.

  • GFW

    PS, I don’t find anything “funny” about the article–that I won’t share at my blog. He’s playing along with his environment and chosen career. Why not? Can you help a handsome successful rich witty and intelligent, if rather clueless, man that reacts to beauty who has women circle him like sharks in blood water? He’s living the life most men would die for. He plays it safe so, so what? I’m kind of liking his interest in blonds for a change. It’s refreshing.

    Just listened to a bit of the Stern interview . . . people have very definite opinions of him but I like his crazy style (funny but crass at times) . . . he also has his professional side as he does the research and genuinely seems interested in listening to those he interviews. GB sounded great . . . really love hearing his personality shine through. So cute! Still makes me feel bad hearing GB talk about his father; overall an informative and entertaining interview. Of course the ongoing speculation about GB’s personal life and on this board too. Who knows what’s really “real” about him . . . seems like a good guy overall . . . just living his life and taking advantage of all the fame (which might seem shallow and empty never knowing anyone’s intentions but that’s just me) . . . and now since he’s all Mr. Popular at the moment there’s an even greater influx of women and endless options I’m sure. Hope he’s able to spot the good ones. Good luck to GB with the women of The View tomorrow.

  • GFW

    Men value honesty in women more than any other characteristic. So why didn’t the woman at the fashion show mention her boyfriend? She could have mentioned him when he pointed to something? She could have said, “My boyfriend would love that on me!” But she did not. So, he’s no fool or sap… she’s a lousy girlfriend.

    @GFW: If you were a true fan you would take Gerard for the good and bad and the ugly . That is what Kaiser is saying. You keep putting him on a mountain high pedestral where even his own ego would say he did not deserve to be placed.

    He said once that his fans might not like him if they really knew him. A lot of actors say this. Part of the motivation to be an actor is that you can pretend to be other people for a living, more heroic, more moral, more charming,more exciting, more witty, stronger, funnier, better, smarter than you because someone else wrote the lines. You can hide your truest self behind the characters especially since many fans confuse the actor and the character and is this no better illustrated than in the case of Butler.

    Large part of his appeal is he isn’t afraid to show a lot of his flaws, though there is still much we don’t know. The combination of his humanity along with some mystery makes him fascinating.

    Kaiser’s sense of humor is not that much different than Gerry’s. If it offends so should Gerry’s. You better not check out the Howard Stern interview. You might have a meltdown.

  • Heartbroken NOT

    @GFW: Boyfriends, husbands, minor speed bumps. Or the whole front row thing was something cooked up WITH the boyfriend’s approval. Showbiz, dontcha love it!

  • GFW

    @PA, Please make no mistake about this but GB is not placed on any pedestal. If you only knew. I’m booted from every fan-site for being too truthful.
    -
    What I do here is ping a lot of pongs, for a reason. People have rearranged how they feel about him from sites such as these. I’ve watch posters switch gears faster than a otter can take river bank in August right here reacting to others. It’s scary.
    -
    How I am here is all me but what I say regarding him is all him too. I see this man through eyes of truth. He has more sides than what he shows. He is a much more serious man in real life. But with a wicked sense of humor no doubt about it. A a tongue that could take down someone is five words or less, written or verbal.
    -
    Won’t like Howard’s show? Gerry copies who he’s with. I’ll leave it at that. Nothing he can do could shock me. What worries me is a lot of abnormal pleasures kill the taste for normal ones.
    -
    I recall that sad remark about himself. It made me sit up and take notice. But it has little to do with his humor or how he acts when “on” but more so when off and even maybe about a select group of fans?
    -
    Even so I seriously doubt, after this past and a half of reassessing and cleaning up his act, inside and out, that he’d say the same if asked the question now. It’s been hard growing up, but he’s done it. And love let’s you keep the change.

  • GFW

    PS, Stepping from the curb to the street is easy. I can do it too. Shocking I’m sure. But anyone who has seen a few of my retorts back to the filth that used to encompass IMDb, knows better. What’s hard is not doing that. He can juggle both, trust me. He is who he is with.

    Who really knows what went down at the fashion show . . . I didn’t read the article and so I don’t know any details. If he was blatantly hitting on her during their conversation and he didn’t notice that she was wearing a ring then she most certainly should have mentioned her boyfriend (that shows a lack of respect for the bf and for herself as well). To give her the benefit of the doubt could it be possible that she and her boyfriend were on a break or going through a split; don’t know, didn’t read the article but that might be a different circumstance. Although I’m sure GB is not looking for rings in the same way that he is not looking at driver’s licenses to reveal the age of his potential conquests – lol – but I don’t think I’ve ever heard of him with any minors thank goodness. Regardless, it is wrong to lead someone on and it works both ways . . . honesty is paramount, most definitely, and I think when speaking to someone in person you have a greater understanding of their character. There are various qualities that someone looks for in another and I would say that truthfulness is right at the top. There really is no way you can have any kind of relationship with someone if you don’t know where you stand with them which is why communication is so important. In addition, there are also unspoken elements that may even trump verbal communication at times if that makes any sense. And I would imagine as a celeb that it would be even more difficult to determine someone’s true intentions. Anyway, we can speculate all day long about GB and will never get anywhere. BTW, I just listened to the end of the Stern interview and all I can say is OMG . . . he really is blunt about what he asks. Yikes! It might sound odd but I actually respect interviewers with that style because at least you know where you stand with him . . . he doesn’t pull any punches and says it like it is. Refreshing.

    #36, Or, or, or, as it can happen, he didn’t afford her the opportunity? You know with his onslaught of direct personal attention to the situation (they’re sat next to each other) and she let him simply admire her enjoying the what really appears a friendly flirtation? Models are the most secure women oftentimes.
    -
    I’m of the opinion he notices everything… and then some.
    -
    With that said, if she has a boyfriend, and they’re exclusive and when she stated so, he’d have a swift and gentlemanly response.

    I rather doubt there are many 1st’s left for this man.

    Wonder when the transcript or recording will show up? Want to hear it. Love that side of Gerry because he’s a very raunchy part of him that smells of dung. Want more “purpose” questions asked. We know Sam’s, but what about his?
    ~K

  • creepy

    @GFW: So do you work for the CIA and have GB under surveillance 24-7. You may not mean it but you talk like you do. All you can say is I hope he is not knowingly hitting on a woman with a boyfriend just like the rest of us don’t know for sure if he was actually hitting on her in THAT way or just being generally flirtatious. Assumptions works both ways.

  • GFW

    Not than anyone cares, but I’m pasting everything I say here at my blog for my readers. For a couple of reasons. 1) They don’t come here but to check for photos… and I bring those over; 2) for parallel conversations oftentimes and so I don’t have to retype it all.

    I actually think this with the girl, and the cheeky article, is fluff. A gossip site in need of hits and comments, nothing more. This is as one poster is called, “no news”.

    @dmp: Yes I agree with you on most of your post. Gerry is a man with many faces, many shoes to fill….LOL And one thing for sure Gerry is a very passioniate man about his work, his life and the people that surround him. Gerry is an actor, that is what all of them do, The Real Man, is a wonderful, strong minded, kind hearted good friend to many. Yes he is blunt, but I prefer that than a lieing sap,lol….Yes he is arogant at times, but even that when in good regulation is a good thing, Gerry is a fighter. I know this is Gerry’s year, IT IS OSCAR TIME, LOL…..Many people talk about Gerry and his relationships, Well Yea, but here is the thing, all of these years I noticed that Gerry takes care of his peeps….I ask myself, LOL, WHO IS TAKING CARE OF GERRY! I have yet to see or hear of anyone that would just suspriseingly just do that…lol. I am not a blind phannie…lol…It happens to be true, he has of yet had anyone taking care of him. Gerry is wonderful, at the end of the day, this is a man that needs to know and feel is that he is safe and he can trust the the person that he is with…lol. a great dinner, backrub and put to bed…lol Gerry is a regular guy, but he is a billionaire,,,,That is another thing, all the empty types that get with him are not helping to build his emotions with regard to some sort of stability or relationship. I admire Gerry for what he does and who he is, but Gerry is just Gerry, Strong minded, young hearted man….Appilonia G. MontiNegro
