    He looks okay.
    Still OLD and BORING!
    I hope the movie does great so he will disappear and make another one, perhaps on a remote Island that’ll last about TEN YEARS!

    Wow, from L.A to Toronto, to Chicago, to Detroit, to NYC to Los Angeles, to Austin, Dallas, London in a very short time period…talk about your energizer bunny…1st premiere Tiff, Toronto, 9/11, so he has been all over the place, plus on radio and satellite appearances in 17 days.

    He took a cut in pay for the film, and Sam has not been paid yet, he says, so lets hope it does well.

    I’m giving you thumbs up all the way!

  • Ziggy

    Thumbs down?
    You peeps who put me down need to look at the subject content and put him down. He’s the loser who thinks he’s hot!

    Must be the fans of this idiot as no normal person would see anything attractive in this dude.

    Oh, how rude! Of me and my youth to speak the truth.

    Vote me down, I don’t care!

  • Jjbc

    This man always just looks unkept and dirty I don’t understand his appeal

  • A True Fan

    He looks gorgeous but very tired. MGP is an awesome film, and I wish them all nothing but absolute success.

  • Ziggy

    @Jjbc:

    U and me both. Thank you!

  • Manny

    Love the suit.
    .
    Butler, if you are going to go to a premiere in a designer suit to premiere for BAFTA, why didn’t you shave your neck? You would have looked so much better and polished IMO. You couldn’t find 5 minutes for that???
    .
    BTW, a little sleep instead of clubbing will put the sparkle back in your eyes and help you leave the eye-baggage in your room where it belongs. :)

  • Manny

    “Scottish stud” instead of “Scottish actor” – Ouch!

  • Ziggy

    I agree Manny!

  • Ziggy

    Scottish stud? lol
    Ewan McGregor is a Scottish Stud!

    What do butler fans think about gerry’s latest hook up with this sara caroll.

  • Ziggy

    I love Just Jared, this site lets people express what they really feel and not what the subject content pays the public to write/say/obey…!

    When you spell her name right, they’ll let you know and it prob won’t be good cuz his fans hate all the chicks he’s associated with

    Just as the discussion on the previous thread gains depth, jj starves it with a new thread. Jj doesn’t like constructive criticism of gb. Now we’re back to childish yah boo again.

    @Ziggy:

    Ziggy, this is a great place to express your opinions. And I respect the fact that you obviously can’t stand Gerry Butler. I can’t stand a lot of celebrities myself. But I love discussing Gerard Butler. Oh, he sometimes looks like he just woke up and as his fans know, he needs a good woman to keep him looking sharp. Without a stylist the man just doesn’t have any fashion sense at all. He’s know for his grungy look and that’s just part of his charm for we fans. When he cleans up for the red carpet and other events.. no one can compare. Have you seen most of his films? He has some good ones under his belt. Machine Gun Preacher is a must see. I got to see it in NYC last weekend and it is a great film, very intense and eye-opening. His “real” fans don’t give a rat’s a.s.s. who he’s rumored to be with. Most of the rumors are false anyway. It seems you know quite a bit about a celebrity that you can’t stand. If you hang around his threads here a lot, he may grow on you.
    I find him quite refreshing, honest, and sexy as h.e.l.l.

    Good luck to you Mr. Butler, You were right when you said, You’re making your mark, but you must forget the material years as well. To all that are negative, I hope you can find it your hearts to be mindful of how you feel towards othere, because this is how you feel towards thyself. Butler is above the nonsense, he keeps it real, but plays the role when he must. Thank you Mr. Butler for all the great things you’ve promised me and carried through with, the most important things in life are wishes and dreams for others around you. Lots of love and graditude to cholita and Mr. Butler. Peace,light, and love,dargabriel

    Grow Up! You obsessive fool!
    He Sucks!
    Not ONE decent Movie in his life!
    And, to think you and his fans think MGP will save him?
    Let me roll over and just die laughing now!
    Nothing will save this untalented IDIOT!

    Don’t know about that . . . haven’t seen it yet. The clips that have been shown look good, though.

  • kelly

    ok someone get gerry a new hair dresser couse his hair looked great on leno and in theses pics looks like he got out of bed and threw some gel in it uuuuggggg gerry u look wonderful in the suit but please hun shave ur kneck fix that mop and get some rest still luvs ya

  • Wwoman

    I am urging people not to see this movie. Apparently CBS edited this comment from the Craig Ferguson show, according to Gerard Butler Global Fans, Gerry told this joke:

    “Why are there so many women in church?”

    “They heard there’s a guy there hung like this.” ( Gerry had his arms stretched out like Jesus nailed to the cross)”

    I don’t think anyone would condone making a joke about any other religious figure, but Gerry obviously has no problem offending Christians and the man he is portraying, Sam Childers, who is a Christian.

    The joke is only funny to teenage boys and his phannies.

    He respects no one, not even himself.

  • Good News

    He must be so tired of people taking pictures of him. I can’t stand my pictures being taken. I look different in each picture, as I assume he does too. Considering how much he has been on the road for the last 3 weeks, I think he looks good. I don’t see how he does it… Does anyone else think Stupidfans is back with a new moniker?

  • Truth

    My pastor tells many jokes at church as does our visiting pastors from other churches. I have also visited friend’s churches and halls, etc and humor is used quite often in many religions.

    Urging people not to go see this movie is not just hurting Butler, it is also a slap in Sam’s face as well. How do you justify that?

    Also, please don’t speak for all Christians. Not everyone is offended by this joke!

  • It was tasteless, yes..

    @Wwoman:
    ..especially considering the subject matter of the movie he is promoting…… but if I had’ve heard it while indulging in a bit of banter with my friends, I would’ve laughed – I’m not going to lie. People can get offended about practically everything that’s said these days. It was a pen,s joke primarily (just like the previous one he told) – I don’t think he really understood at the time of saying it that the Christian reference was highly inappropriate. He needs to have a bit more of a think before he speaks…….. especially since he knows that Sam has loaded guns in his possession!!!! Hahahah….

  • It was tasteless, yes..

    @Truth:
    Well said. And it goes without saying that I’ve actually heard this joke before, and the person who told it to me was a Christian! Some people just take themselves far too seriously (but I still think he should not have said it on national TV while promoting a film centred around Christianity).

  • angelsrock

    @Ziggy:

    I think its quite obvious to anyone here that you are the one that needs to grow up.
