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.

    From GFW: “3) I’ve sent email to the Charlie
    Rose show…..”. Does noone else find this extremely disconcerting and disturbing? I think you true fans out there need to warn GB’s people about GFW. For his own safety. O.M.G.

    Butler’s peeps are very aware of nutcase GFW. She was involved in some kind of cease and desist over her Gerry p*rn a couple of years back…

    He really is a versatile actor and throws himself into his characters completely. His weight goes up and down for each role but this new weight loss is really drastic! He wasn’t as popular when he was Atilla or Beowulf but I think he was sexiest then. When he was in Iceland filming Beowulf and Grendel he did this interview in Wrath of Gods where he was so relaxed and funny his wetsuit half off and his wet hair dangling all over and he was so sexy ! SEXY! He had meat on them bones and he looked just fine. He is too thin now in my opinion but he is still quite sexy!!!!!

    Liar. No truth to this at all. You’re a frustrated ex “Gerry p*rn” reader yourself who no longer has access! LOL You crack me up, totally. You can’t read anymore. Ha-ha-ha!!

    who says what’s wrong with sending an email to the Carlie Rose show… who, by the way, wrote back saying they’ll look into him thanking me for my interest. :oP

    @301, Shut up. You don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. It’s proactive and supportive if you find a talent not getting the proper attention to his movies, especially since Ralph is on the show all the time and he’s working with him now, to promote said talent? To me that’s what true supporters do, champion!

    Gerry said… “It’s just doing a lot of cardio and extremely watching what I eat. I stopped lifting big weights and I’m doing yoga.” <– To Manny, didn’t we speak to this in the first erotic story I wrote? No? Yes? Yes.. ;o) What you think about comes about! No, he’s seriously using food as medicine, and enjoying it too!

    @GerrysFascinatingWoman:

    Not gonna spend anymore time on this, outta my home state and with family and friends fixing to have a blast in New Orleans. But this is what I’m talking about. You are mean to people. And YES it is very worrisome that you are contacting people on Gerard Butlers behalf. Unless you work for him. And I’m thinking ya don’t.

    It’s also obvious that you and that sweetstone2(?) person are one in the same. Strange. Just strange. Buh bye now. :-D

  • GerrysFascinatingWoman

    @306, Contacting Charlie Rose is supportive and proactive, nothing else. I wasn’t being “mean to people”, I was defending myself from the ugly name calling that was unnecessary. But it fits for you to twist things doesn’t it? Like I said Lisa, if you only knew.

    It always amazes me how quickly and easily stars can drop or add weight. I guess if its for a movie roll, you’re going to get a lot of money to get it done. It also probably doesn’t hurt to have enough money to workout all day either…

    He looks very malnurished. speaking as a personal trainer and a nutritionist. his skin, figure, and the way he caries himself, Is an indication that his muscles are showing obviouse atrophy and his eyes are an indication that he isn’t consumeing enough electrolytes or water. He is Exhausting his body. Last but not least he isn’t getting the proper amount of nutrients because of his vigorouse workout and the inability to replentish with the proper amount of nutrients in time. weight lifting and training like a tri athlete are completely different in required nutritional intake. He looks very sick to me. and I think he is a very handsome man.

  • I.A.G.

    Has anyone noticed that he’s been wearing the same shirt for 2 days in a row,on an event and on travelling?lol!!Luv Gerry!!
