Gerard Butler Explains His Drastic Weight Loss

Gerard Butler Explains His Drastic Weight Loss

Gerard Butler lands at LAX Airport after flying in from NYC on Thursday (September 15) in Los Angeles.

The 41-year-old Scottish star was in the Big Apple to promote his new movies, Coriolanus and Machine Gun Preacher.

Gerry also attended the Diesel Black Gold show where he chatted with Us Weekly about his recent weight loss.

“I ate my last meal in October and I run about 40 miles a day,” he joked. “It’s just doing a lot of cardio and extremely watching what I eat. I stopped lifting big weights and I’m doing yoga.”

“If I wear a long shirt, everyone says, ‘Oh my, God! He lost so much weight.’ But this is how I look,” he added. “I just used to be a lot bigger. But now I’m surfing. I’m doing a surf movie so I have to slim down. I don’t know … maybe I’m sick or something!”

FYI: Gerard is wearing a Rogue plaid shirt and dark olive jacket.

What happen to pierce morgan interview he was supposed to be on does anyone know.

@Earlyautumn’s Eve:
.
Sorry Eve but I have to take issue with some of the things you posted…
.
“Gerry’s so evasive of his private life so they have to invent stuff to make it more interesting. In truth, his private life is pretty dull compared.”
.
And you know this how? Can you prove they have invented stuff? You are speaking as if you have inside knowledge which is not true. Butler has done enough boasting to take the wind out of that argument of yours IMO. His interview with HS speaks volumes as to who he is…
.
I also take issue with your US vs. European women. That has absolutely nothing to do with the point made by others. Their points, which I totally agree with, is that he said he likes to use and move on by his words “get rid of.” Gee whether you are European or American, I can’t think of any woman that would like to be referred to as disposable.
.
I agree with you that it takes two to tango… BUT his attitude of disposable women is a very valid point IMO.
.
As for a long winded post…….. wasn’t it just a thread or two ago that you made a nasty comment to Curious Cat about the same thing? Shame shame…
.
@RosemaryThyme:

I really enjoyed that post too. JJ is addictive, more so than Butler, at least for me.

Cubie is a smart cookie isn’t she?

As I was getting ready for work this morning Phantom of the Opera was on HBO. Gerry looked so good then. Was quite a wake up call to me how different he looks now. He still has those great hands but the imposing feel of his body is long gone. Made me sort of sad…….

The video of the two crying women (girls actually) is on YouTube. Don’t know if this was mentioned – just check on his name and Central Park. This was the start of the encounter – obviously it’s not clear if it continued as Stern suggested. Perhaps it did or perhaps it was GB boasting? Perhaps one of the origins of his joke that two 17-year old girls equal one 34-year old woman? Whatever excuses or explanations are glossed in now, he hasn’t done his public image any favours with the HS interview, certainly with those who didn’t know as much about him as those who frequent these boards.

Just to clarify my previous post, I meant GB boasting to his friends which created a story that reached HS, not boasting in the interview. Unless anyone knows of how the story started that he took them home and …..

@Earlyautumn’s Eve: Are those the cars you have seen him drive over the years? In LA, I think he only has the MB suv and the little car, but it isn’t vintage. I think maybe you are right about his staff driving some of the others you listed. Where would he park all of those cars anyway? Maybe Gerard Butler needs one of those driveways that can accommodate twenty five parked cars. <— that’s a little side joke btw….

@Leah: haha, I have a level psychology, can I be a ‘sofa’? Just to put it out there- could hs sctually gIn gb more fans? After all Lloyd webberdid say he had the rock and roll sensibilities to play ‘just the right side of dangerous’?

Gerry is so full of prunes at times that I don’t think even the people that are close to him believe half the bull hockey he comes out with. Most men brag to feed their egos. I have a dear friend who told his wife that he was going to trade her in for two seventeen years olds and she looked at him and said yea and I’ll visit you on visiting day when your arrested for jail bate. A smart woman can get Gerry eating out of her hand. He just hasn’t met me yet. LOL

That’s jail bait, coffee hasn’t kicked in yet.

Buenos dias a todos,les dejo esta bonita cancion de LUIS MIGUEL y se llama CONTIGO EN LA DISTANCIA…..A moment of a day does not exist where I can separate to me of you.the world is diferent when you are not with me.Beautiful melody does not exist where she does not appear you,nor I want to hear it.Already I transformerd you in part of my soul nothing more it consoles me if you it will not be also…but beyond its lips of the sun and the stars,with you in the distance loved mine..Iam…….espero que la traduccion este bien …..amorcito I LOVE YOU…..adios.

I think personally GB relationship wise is not good but im not advocating him here but i know this womaniser guy and he said he constantly went through women afer women until he met someone who swept him off his feet and made his heart skip a beat everytime he saw her. Maybe thats the same case with GB he sleeps with them and can be great friends with them but hasnt been with someone he gets addicted to. And i think when he said hes been in love i dont believe him as in a previous interview he said he hasnt been in love but been infatuated with ppl then wears off and doesnt let get to emotioanally connected, because if you really love someone you will do everything in your power to keep them, GB cheats on most of his girlfriends or maybe all

@lolita: It is interesting how everything that Gerard Butler has said in interviews has been analyzed. The posters seem to pick and choose what is the truth and what is a joke…or what must be the “real truth” because Gerard Butler covered it up with a joke. As for your statement “He just hasn’t met me yet. LOL”… try Match.com.!! If we are suppose to take everything as the serious truth, Gerard Butler stated he is on that dating site in an interview. Good Luck.

@Manny:

You said……
“Sorry Eve but I have to take issue with some of the things you posted…”
-
Take “issue”? What’s the big issue? You’re entitled to your opinions and I mine. No need to get your panties in a bind! LOL!

**
I said…..
“Gerry’s so evasive of his private life so they have to invent stuff to make it more interesting. In truth, his private life is pretty dull compared.”
-
And you said….
“And you know this how? Can you prove they have invented stuff? You are speaking as if you have inside knowledge which is not true. Butler has done enough boasting to take the wind out of that argument of yours IMO. His interview with HS speaks volumes as to who he is…”
.
Can you PROVE that they haven’t? You know how the media likes to embellish and sensationalize! You can’t be that naïve! All of what he does or doesn’t do is hearsay and don’t go reverting back to his little snogging sessions on sidewalks as proof of his manhoring. Gerry’s “boasting” is just what he does to get a rise out of people. Men are notorious for telling “fish tales”.
-
His interview with HS was revealing, confirming many things I already knew about him and adding some new things I didn’t. I liked it and actually, HS went up a couple of notches in my book as well.

You said….
“I also take issue with your US vs. European women. That has absolutely nothing to do with the point made by others. Their points, which I totally agree with, is that he said he likes to use and move on by his words “get rid of.” Gee whether you are European or American, I can’t think of any woman that would like to be referred to as disposable.”
-
I’ll have to go back listen to what he said but I didn’t hear him use the word “disposable” or “get rid of”. What I’m saying about US and European women is true, for the most part and I do believe that’s what he was referring to.

**
You said…
“I agree with you that it takes two to tango… BUT his attitude of disposable women is a very valid point IMO.”
-
Again, it’s your perception he was referring to women as “disposable”. Manny, I think you need to stop worrying so much about Butler if he doesn’t fit your idea of what a man should be or act like! I don’t really understand your bashing of him yet you still hang on to him coming to his threads! LOL! Your attraction to him seems to be centered around an obsession over his looks, so with all you are saying how HE treats women, objectifying and disposable, wouldn’t YOU be guilty of objectifying him too? You even “disposed” of him on numerous times saying you were no longer attracted to him when he was smoking, obsessing over how it would damage his “looks” more so then being concerned about his health. Obviously that clarifies that your only admiration for him is superficial, just like YOU accuse him of being! LOL!

Case in point, this comment…..

“As I was getting ready for work this morning Phantom of the Opera was on HBO. Gerry looked so good then. Was quite a wake up call to me how different he looks now. He still has those great hands but the imposing feel of his body is long gone. Made me sort of sad…….”
-
Now admit it. If he talked about a woman this way, you’d have be up in arms and take immediate “issue” with it! LMFAO!

You said…
“As for a long winded post…….. wasn’t it just a thread or two ago that you made a nasty comment to Curious Cat about the same thing? Shame shame…”
-
She made a nasty comment to me! LOL! And for the record, how many nasty comments have you made about myself and others here even resorting to name calling? Is that very mature? Again, you seem to sit in judgement on people and accuse them of the very things you do! Shame, shame back at you!
-
But back to Butler. You’re a woman who seems to be so appalled by a man who’s behavior, in your eyes, is immature and disgusting. So why do you even bother with him? I’m sure there are many more virtuous and gentlemanly hunky actors like Cloony, Pitt and whoever else that are more worthy of your admiration!

Lampsandtables @ 09/17/2011 at 12:14 pm

He didn’t show on Piers Morgan Tonight yesterday. Were we misinformed or was he sick so he had to cancel? Curious. Hope he is all right after the whirlwind press trip last couple weeks.

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/17/2011 at 12:15 pm

@LLL:

Yes. I’ve seen him get in and out of a black Yukon in LA getting coffee. He was even cleaning old coffee cups out of it! LOL!

I’ve seen him driving the little Benz suv quite a bit. I think that one is a personal car.

I’ve seen him driving the Beemer leaving a lunch with friends. Heigl was there.

I saw him filling up the RR with Amy just lately. I don’t think he’d be filling up her car but I guess a PA can earn enough to afford one and a good boss might just do that.

I’ve seen him get out of the RR to go surfing. I think he has that one at the beach.

It wouldn’t be difficult to store his cars in storage units if you don’t have the garage space but I think some of them are for the production company.

My son has a triple car garage and his wife has a Tahoe and he has a Dodge truck and another work truck and stores his Corvette up on the highway in a storage unit because he doesn’t want to drive it on gravel! Storage units are pretty safe, lighted and gate locked.

“Just to clarify my previous post, I meant GB boasting to his friends which created a story that reached HS, not boasting in the interview. Unless anyone knows of how the story started that he took them home and …..”

I think HS embellished on that story. I don’t thing Gerry boasted to anyone about taking home a couple of teenaged girls he met in the park with their parents! LOL
-
I think everyone has seen that vid of Gerry in the park and the two girls coming up to him, even HS. Howard is the one who threw in the “making women cry in the park” scenario. I never heard Gerry say one thing about taking them home! Their parents were right there and one of them was taking the vid, for heaven’s sakes! HS is going to say whatever he can to shock. That’s who he is…..shock jock!
-
I thought the interview was very good and insightful but some are still going to put their own twist on it to suit their own sensibilities.

Also, since I can’t get this post to post, I’ll just add to it another comment…

@Lampsandtables:

I never saw anywhere that he was going o be on Piers Morgan. But they do pre record many shows way in advance for editing purposes. Check with GALS. I think they have it covered. Gerry’s schedule is pretty slammed right now. He may have to decline some appearances. I would like to see him on that show, however. Piers is an old tabloid writer so if an interview has got to go, he’d probably can that one.

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/17/2011 at 12:26 pm

Sorry for the double post but blame it on JJ! LOL! I didn’t think it went in.

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/17/2011 at 12:40 pm

@Lampsandtables:

I checked GALS schedule and he was supposed to have TAPED the show on 9/16 and the air time has not been scheduled yet.

@Earlyautumn’s Eve: The point was you equated Gerard Butler’s females to his cars… a different car/female for everyday of the week. There is no reason to go back and forth with you….without a doubt you know more than I.

Earlyautumn's Eve @ 09/17/2011 at 3:01 pm

@LLL:

The change in the tone of your post suggests that #96 might not be you! I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and say someone is playing tricks! LOL!

hmmm hmmm @ 09/17/2011 at 3:07 pm

@Lampsandtables: Matter of wrong info coming from GALS. Might have been the day Butler taped or was supposed to tape interview with Morgan who knows. Piers does not work on as fixed a schedule as other shows it appears, also a breaking news story will push everything else off.

I think this has been discussed here before, guessing that he either gets comped vehicles for promotional purposes, perhaps just for a short period of time, long enough for the paps to get photos like that silver Mercedes hybrid car which we’ve only seen him near once! or unlike most of us he can lease a vehicle and then exchange it or they’ll take it back, no questions asked no penalty vwhenever he gets bored, again for the promotional consideration. He doesn’t even drive in NYC so he’d be a fool to “buy” all those vehicles he is seen driving. He probably only has a few vehicles he owns outright or has long term leases on. He’s a true Scotsman, why pay for something you can get for free or write off as a business expense at least. You know like milk from the cow.

May God Bless yoou all! @ 09/17/2011 at 3:58 pm
