Gerard Butler Recovering After Surfing Incident

Gerard Butler is on the mend after a scary incident involving his latest movie, Of Men and Mavericks.

The 42-year-old Scottish stud was filming scenes for the movie version of surfer Jay Moriarty‘s life story when some strong waves began to come through the Northern California break.

According to ESPN, a large outside set of waves came through and caught the cast and crew off-guard.

“[Gerry] was held down for a solid two waves and took four or five more on the head before being washed through the rocks on the inside, where he was finally able to be plucked out,” eyewitnesses told ESPN.

Gerry was taken to the hospital just in case but is expected to make a full recovery. Glad everyone is okay, but what a scary experience!

    Dear JJ, Gerard saw this coming. Greed stands in the way of what’s real, Gabriel does not tolerate this standing, remember, Gabriel is judgement and is very capable of making things happen in the most powerful way imaginable. Let’s just say, Gerard needs to pay close attention to his Gabriel, the spiritual father, he’s doing things he’s not supposed to be and lacking things he’s supposed to be doing. One can only hope GB stops ***** footing around and truely gets his act together, things are catching up, the earth clock is running, someone should be by his side @ this point, but he choses to go against this,wrongdoings. Double the power makes for 10 times the soul protection, but to all of you caring doding hardcore butler fans, butler is protected at all times and I don’t mean by physical monkeys, that’s just for show, its the invisible that’s. At his side @ all times, but again as I’ve said way in the past, Gerard is having the wind knocked out of his sails, follow the spiritual path Mr.Butler, don’t run away. To Mr. Butler, stay focused, don’t fall weak to your hollywood hype, remember this is only a job, nothing more or less. You felt the need to gain your popularity via being publicized, however you are so powerful without this material lifestyle, but I suppose you have to fullfill this ln this lifetime, be very careful of the power you transfer, universal power from a higher spirtual being can be very trying @ times, I would know this from OG, he is a Nephalim, very powerful and fearless, remember everything happens for a reason, I know he’s very much fine to all of you worried about him. He is one of a kind and knows his power and his other half’s, they’re 2 half’s of a whole equal parts, the divine couple, of Gabriel,God, and their christself. I love you Butler, You see God/Goddess love, keep watching behind the scenes, the trickster in disguise, your otherhalf is showing true love through others. Hi Cholita and much love and light to you/your Arch Michael, all my warm wishes and faith to you and all of you. Please don’t think I’m this harsh being, I’m only real, positive/negative, universal law through and through, God is Love and Rath, this is the real. Take care. Love,dargabriel

    “Real surfers don’t often survive such experiences”
    -
    Yes they do, you should watch big wave competitions, you will see surfers wipeout, take bigger hits from bigger waves and carry on competing after a quick medical check. Yes ‘real’ surfers die after being held down but generally they are in much worse situations than GB.
    _________
    LOL! There are people that survive all kinds of bad situations, such as being buried alive for 17 days after an earthquake. So I’m sure some surfers survive a “two wave hold down.” BTW, these are not my words. Did you read the article posted by “from WO”? Interesting article written by surfers. Here it is again for you:

    http://surfimages.com/blog/2011/12/20/gerard-butler-almost-drowns-at-mavericks/

    ” A two wave hold down in the surfing world is considered one of the worst scenarios a surfer could find himself in…… It is very hard to believe that Gerard did actually have a two wave hold down and not drown as most professional surfers could rarely survive this type of scenario yet alone an armature”
    .
    Some words of advice for you, you should first read the comments and articles posted, before you look for an excuse “to tell me off”. It makes you sound petty. Are you still soooooo angry I don’t share your ridiculous ideology? Of course, you are. You can’t believe there are people out there that actually think for themselves and look for the truth. You follow your stup!d government propaganda because you don’t know how to think. LOL! And everything you don’t like sounds to you like Sarah Palin. You need to come up with another reason why you’re so shaken and stirred by other ideas. You’re a one-trick pony and you’re getting boring.

    “Each one of these waves could be described as a small Tsunami. ”
    -
    No, they couldn’t. Tsunamis and waves are two completely different things.
    ____
    LOL! Here we go again. Yes, they are 2 different things because tsunamis usually follow earthquakes, BUT, tsunamis produce waves and that’s why some mammoth waves could be describes as tsunami waves. Waves are waves; it’s irrelevant in which process they were produced – an earthquake or other means.

    @Manny:
    “I was totally and completely offended by the use of the word tsunami being used. To that poster, go look at the devastation of a tsunami “
    .
    No need to be overly offended. If you get offended so easily by such a simple statement, I wonder what happens to you when someone really insults you.
    .
    In addition, if you ever watch Nat Geo, Discovery channel, or TLC they produce many shows on nature, including tsunamis, and I have watched many of them. In fact, just recently there was a show on Nat Geo about the tsunami phenomenon and how a smaller tsunami could be formed in a river. It doesn’t always have to cause massive devastation. That’s where I got the phrase a “small tsunami”. So, really, you don’t need to become over dramatic and over reacting, using statements such as, “I was totally and completely offended by the use of the word tsunami being used.” Please relax.

    “Gerard saw this coming.”
    -
    STOP your foolishness! Seriously. This had nothing to do with greed. Butler wasn’t doing anything crazy. They got caught in an unpredictable set of waves.
    -
    Taking the waves to the head had to be very scary as hell. Bless his heart he used his listening skills trusting in himself and going with the commotions and did not panic!
    -
    He lost his ‘leash’ and was separated from his board, but the crew were there for him. “plucked out” that’s adorable.
    -
    Just hope as time passes he listens to his body and reports anything that’s amiss.

    @Manny:
    Is there something wrong with that? I should not be here? Says who? The board bully, you? Fact. I haven’t been here for years like you! At least I’m interesting, no, fascinating! And boy is this ever being discussed at my blog with my very special reader(s). It is.

    You guys should be grateful a new thread was created, all things considered. Frankly, I was beginning to wonder! Hope this one people can leave their shriveled dried up body-parts and private intimate sessions (and laundry mishaps) out of general conversation? (fingers crossed)

    Update Says:

    Gerry is an actor and he always strives for it to look and feel real. I am sure he doesn’t intentionally put himself in harms way. That is why there are always experts around him to protect and keep hi m safe. This was an unexpected event but there were those there to watch over him and the others to keep them safe. I am so thankful they were successful. I do pray for him everyday for his safety and this past Sunday was no different. He was protected.

    Cnoc Mhor Says:

    Well the “pop culture” commentator on the US cable tv channel msnbc just ripped GB for attempting to do the stunt(s) at Mavericks. She mentioned Tom Cruise and the trend that actors have been on doing their own extremely dangerous stunts and how reckless that is. I hope that if there is anymore footage needed at Mavericks that Butler’s stunt double does it or they use special effects for whatever is needed…

It was the ocean that turned on him. That’s mean, rude, but meant to create drama and get hits and viewers, nothing else, nothing more. Conflict. That’s all, oh, and press for the movie whether they know it or not!!!

    @Cnoc Mhor: But here is the hypocrisy the same people who say Tom Cruise and Gerry shouldn’t be doing the stunts or go as far as they do will be the first to criticize the movie if the use of the stunt double isn’t seamless………the audience as well drives the need to up the ante with all action films. Mission Impossible is a successful franchise because Crazy Cruise is doing cooler and cooler stunts. The actors who are willing to go the extra mile I think are darlings of the directors as well.

    @angelsrock: Thanks Angel! I missed my hubby and I’m exhausted – too much work to do. Traveling again after New Year’s.

    Actors have to be so careful doing their own stunts. He is really lucky that he didn’t get seriously hurt. It’s rocky around Mavericks and he got pounded hard. I know that scary feeling of too much water and trying to pull yourself out – I got caught in a whirlpool in a class 4 rapid and got slammed pretty hard against the boulders. Considered myself lucky for having upper body strength to swim out to safety.

    Hope our friend, JDV, is doing well. She is having some trials and I am hopeful that things turn out well for her family.

    Angel, have a great holiday and enjoy your family! Stay sane, funny and wonderful!

    Cnoc Mhor Says:

    @Hollywood Gossiper: Indeed…I think it is impossible to please everyone and you are right, some people will complain if actors do the dangerous stunts themselves and then others will complain if they don’t and some of their opinions will flip flop depending on what happens. There is likely to be a lot of pressure too like you said since some actors like Cruise keep pushing the envelope and as a result the audience can want or expect more each time. I agree too that perhaps there is also a bit of competition between the movie stars themselves(especially the guys) to keep doing crazier and crazier stunts and keep outdoing each other. But doing the stunt(s) at what cost??…Is it worth it to risk one’s life for a close up shot or a medium close up that now can be made using “face replacement” technology(“Black Swan” type stuff…for example just inserting Butler’s face onto the stunt double’s body)?…Or if it is a wider shot they are after, surely they can spend some extra dollars to make the scene and effects top notch without having Butler be in a treacherous, unpredictable dangerous zone??…***shrugs***…I mean I am all for doing as much of your own work on a film as one can. Actors can work extremely hard on their roles and give 150% and still not feel like they did enough unless they did all or almost all of their own stunt work which I think is unfortunate since that is the work professional stunt people are paid to do. What if things had turned out differently the other day at Mavericks? What if Butler had smashed into the rocks? What if he had gotten a serious head injury or other injury etc.? Would it have been worth it to have had him do it? His well being/life to get a film shot?…hmmm…If Butler himself insisted on doing that against advice well I think he ought to have taken a step back and really evaluated the risk but he is a grown man and that decision was his to make………. in general, I just think that these film projects and productions have professional stunt doubles, coordinators, etc. whose job it is to do all that stuff, be in those unpredictable places with unpredictable variables, take those risks and I for one think that the films’ producers/directors and stars should just let them do it……………just my thoughts:)

    from WO Says:

    Butler, 42, was held underwater for two waves and washed through some rocks while tethered to his 10-foot surfboard, Wormhoudt said.
    .
    “He was down at least 20, maybe 40 seconds. It’s traumatic because you’re rolling around a bunch with lots of rocks on the inside of the break — called the bone yard,” he said. “We all went through that.”
    .
    “He was pretty awesome,” Wormhoudt said of Butler. “I was stoked that he didn’t panic. He basically acted like he’d been surfing a long time. He remained calm and kept his composure.”
    .
    “Some people are cocky about Mavericks, and then if they’re humbled by the waves, they go away with their tail between their legs. (Butler) was the opposite. He was respectful and humble going in, and after it happened, he was the same way,” Wormhoudt said.

    Thank you for the wonderful articles that you have chosen to post here. Each of them has shed light on what occurred to Gerry this past Sunday.
    Seriously, the man is very lucky to be alive. God shined upon him on Sunday.
    .
    Also, his decent personality always comes through his attitude. He’s a spiritual man and he believes in God according to what he told Pierce Morgan, so of course he would be humbled by the waves, how could he not?

    Gerry has a lot to give thanks for this season, more than most. He was given the gift of life. A second chance. To his world, his family, his friends, and his colleagues… and knows it. He was very, very lucky. But was it luck? Or was an omnipotent force hovering, ever watchful of His little gem? The choice, like all we do, say and feel… is up to us.

    You are a virtual treasure chest of Gerry news and photos. Thanks once again. That must have been a very scary few minutes for Gerry and the rest of the crew!!

    I was trapped in a riptide years ago and it still scares me to think about it. I was on the verge of panicking because I had my young nieces and nephews out there with me and they were holding on to me. Even though it was a few minutes I was totally exhausted and had to lay on the beach for awhile to recover. We still talk about that and always remind each other what to do when caught in a riptide (swim parallel to the beach until you come out of it) You are fine one minute laughing and splashing and then all of a sudden you can not touch bottom and can’t swim into shore. It’s frightening! Mother Nature is fearsome at times.

    GWF, YOU DON’T know anything and certainly don’t know the real, you must have a lot of timeon your hands to be spending so much time on this GODFORSAKEN PLACE and as for the rest of you very lonely lost married women who live in make believe land of Gerard Butler, need to pay more attentionto your husbands and famiy, because honestly, Butler does not care, the only thing he cares about is recognition because he’s vain,egotistical, and very much about money,fake, and attention, you attract what you are and judging what I’ve seen, except for a few exceptional souls, truely benevolent, Mr: Butler has attracted jealousy,hatred,vicious, and most of all negative individuals. This is madness. Makes me wonder what you ppl are aging like? Probably the same way Butler is, very rapidly, GOD gives grace to those who’ve been chosen and Izmve been given the right of judgement, how many of you have health issues? Or karma issues? I’ve none and I am faithful to my beloved christ. Butler is getting tossed around by Gabriel for reason, he knows why, regaurdless of what you monkeys think, programmable monkeys is what you all are, I’ve to admit, it’s damn powerful when you know what’s happening behind the scenes, the human mind being baited like a fishing line, hook,line,and sinker. Cholita knows all as well, this person is of the higher self and truely loves. Gabriel comes forth to myself and walks beside me everyday even before I was born into this madness, for the second time in this perticular lifetime and I know how very blessed I am to have him/her. My heart goes out to the ignorant who are being rapture by false beliefs, the fate clock is ticking and living well is the key, money does not matter, being gifted and blessed, having this divine power within is what I’m talking about and using it for the very best of humanity is what god gives to only those who’ve earned their wings, this is the real. Butler has unfortanately earned his karma in anegative way, but has paid a lot of money to gurus,rabbi,and other forms of much needed awareness to the spiritual to learn what and who he truely is and with this knowledge and power of his universe, he’s taken it to madness, cast upon his otherhalf, well all the males that have
    any hopes or thoughts of being with her, in this case, it’s best to let completely go,accept, and unconditionally love for most this is very difficult. Butler is very strict with his beloved and is very bossy and possesive, he keeps a very close watch, every move and action he sees through phychic sense and visions. None of you really know what’s going down, except for Cholita that is, its nice to be a Nephalim. Butler is changing his outllook as I write, I’m seeing this, slowly but surely, he is coming home to God/Goddess, a message to Mr.Butler, You ask your Beloved to wait for you in this lifetime, but there are many soulmates, whom are very kind and hot,lol, who also desire an oppertunity, however there is only one in unison twinflame. Ok last but not least ppl, monkeys, I’m asking Butler to announce via twitter or messages where he is for all you who don’t really know, I do however. He will be sending forth a message his whereabouts, he’s searching, he’s geographically close to his destiny and knows it. Well gotta go and have lots of fun,starbucks,road trips,adventure,spending,loving great family, wow, lifeis grand. Peace out and many positive returns. Dargabriel

    Knowing Butler, he’ll get back in the water but it won’t be there! I even think he’ll surf a little if he gets the opportunity but Gerry’s seems like a “try it at least once” kinda guy so unless he really enjoys something, he probably won’t bother. He’s always been a “face your fears” too and this may even make him more apt to get back out there on a board soon.

    I’d be the opposite. I take things like that as a sign to stop pushing my luck!

    He’s not a surfer. It’s not his bliss. He might be achy. Too much to risk right now. Could be. The ocean is not getting calmer. I suggest it not wise to tempt fate again. Yet I’m not worried. Just cautious. He’s not someone to lose to recklessness.

If he wanted to settle there’s nothing stopping him he’s got fame,money everything he just doesnt seem the type as husband material he even admitted on Howard stern that he wonders how other people do it!

    He’s 42 a middle aged man not young playboy anymore!! And I just simply hate it when women on here say hope he meets a young good girl what makes you think any good girl would want to settle with him maybe that’s why he prob goes for s!utty types as decent good ones won’t put up with him!

    I hope he proves me wrong but I find it irritating that these women make out he’s some lost soul waiting for the perfect woman to wave her magic wand he’s a clever, intelligent man as an actor and business man he knows what he’s doing

    But I wonder why they took him to the hospital for observation if he was standing on his own 2 feet after the whole ordeal. Maybe because he swallowed too much H2O, and if you do you can be drowning without knowing it. Also, maybe he hit his head and suffered a concussion, but then he would pass out, yet he was standing on his own 2 feet. I wish we knew exactly what happened to him from him and not from onlookers who saw the whole thing from a distance. Just curious to hear the exact story.

    .
    Let’s be honest here. You’re just jealous I said I wished he would meet a young woman of child-bearing years. I didn’t even say a young girl. You just immediately saw that image in your heard and it made you angry, probably because you’re nowhere near the vicinity.
    .
    Not only are you jealous, you don’t even want him to meet a life partner or wish him the best because besides being jealous you’re also a fuucking selfish witch, like most of you here. You all think he will be interested in you if he met you, yet you are all either too old for him, can’t have kids – your ovaries have been removed or you’re not bleeding anymore, divorced with a litter of 8, not traditional enough for his mom to approve of you, too fat, short or ugly, or worse……married to an emasculated hubby while you dream of GB, in effect cheating on said hubby. Of course your hubby is emasculated because you lost interest in him long, long time ago after you found out you can walk all over him because he was too weak to stand up to you, or throw you on the bed and spank you until the tears came flowing down as you said “Yes master” and acknowledged he can overpower you whenever he liked.
    .
    Let’s be honest. You’re all here because you’re looking for a masculine man to penetrate and invade your mind with sexy fantasies because the current men in your life are just boring – not sexy and not attractive anymore in your eyes. You want the passionate sex that comes with a masculine man; you want the thrill of being in his strong powerful arms; you want his hands all over you, manhandling you. Plain and simple, you want to be validated as a feminine being.
    .
    As a result, a tempest is swirling in your heart, not unlike the tempest of the waves that caught GB this past weekend. Your best bet is going back to hubby and telling him you want him to take charge of your marriage. It will turn both of you on immediately to have your man being forceful and in command of you, once you stop trampling him. Gerard will meet his match one day soon, and none of you ******* are in his future. So go on with your diatribes against those of us who wish him luck in finding the ONE. Be like this crazy jealous Anna.

    .
    You feel like this because you can’t have a serious much-wanted man interested in you, so in order to feel better about your loser self you start detracting from his worthiness. Please be honest with yourself, you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t feel attracted to him, or had a fantasy of meeting him and having sex with him. You would love nothing more than to have him choose you, if it were up to you. If you could, you would do anything to make that happen.
    .
    You’re a fraud if you’re on this site following him yet express such disdain for the guy, saying he can’t get a normal regular girl so he goes for sluuts. How do you know it’s the case? What you call sluuts he calls sexy models, which is probably his type, as opposed to the likes of you being his type.
    .
    I just can’t understand the women that start badmouthing him while they are here salivating after him.

    LOLLLL- talk about sharing fantasies. GFW will have a come apart with you sharing your submissive desire to be spanked by a dominant man and wanting GB to be that man for you. Oh I forgot, LOLLLL IS GFW, my bad!!! She thinks fantasizing in some way diminishes a man and your relationship with him when in fact it does the opposite and empowers a relationship. What is weird, is it is OK for her to fantasize and write Gerry PORN but no one else is allowed! That is a sign of a very delusional person.

    Christmas Greetings to everyone!!  Have only been gone a week and I see our Butler found himself in a “little” bind that fast, didn’t he??  Good grief….I can’t have BOTH my men dealing with medical issues at once.  I  mean, how much can one adoring woman take??  :)THANK YOU so much for your kind and comforting words last week when I had a meltdown.  Honey Bunny had just admitted to me that afternoon that he made a Dr. appt 10 days before because he hasn’t been feeling quite right (I knew that part, just not about the appt.).  The initial exam/bloodwork required more tests.  One certainty is that his liver is acting up.  So on the heels of burying our friend, Jill, we learn this and I couldn’t sleep at all that night, so I unloaded here.  Apologies for dropping the F-bomb in my last post.  I don’t like to do that. *@Can’tGetEnough: @Autumn: @angelsrock

    JJ cut me right off at the knees! Did you see that? I am at a hotel in Tidewater area of VA and the connectivity is sketchy at best. I wanted to thanks some of you specifically for your comforting and wise words: Autumn, CGE, Angelsrock, Lolita, Maggie, RedO, Manny, Niknoks, Tonto and others who I am sure I am leaving out
    (sorry)……GOD BLESS you and thank you! We are in a wait and see mode. Honey Bunny is an ornery and stubborn patient. He just cannot believe that 2 hours of Deep Purple and Black Sabbath heard at “11″ can’t cure every malady. The truth is he has only called in sick one time since I’ve known him (almost 21 years). He doesn’t get sick and he always soldiers on. It really terrified me when he told me what was up.

    This is my favorite season because I just love Jesus. He has been there for me when no one else could be found. I love the attention he gets this time of year even though a lot of it is not being directed towards him, so to speak. RedO, I loved your description a few posts back.

    Anyway, thank you Sistas of the thread for your calming words. I have been beating the heck out of the elliptical this past week and I reintroduced myself to yoga. Very spiritual for me. And I’ve been reaching out to others which always makes me feel better.

    Autumn, I do believe we will not be having a white Christmas! Disappointing for some! I wouldn’t have minded it so much since I won’t be traveling, but I guess it will be much easier to take down all those lights outside without having to step in a foot of snow! LOL

    On a completely unrelated topic, my daughter, who is a senior in college and is a student teacher who is studying to teach Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education and Math, learned today that the one A – she got gave her a 3.95 GPA instead of the 4.0. Well, I’ve never seen anyone beat themselves up so much over that, the poor kid, like it’s the end of the world. If it was me, I’d take the 3.95 GPA and run for the hills. I guess it’s that aggravating feeling of being so close and not getting it. I hope she recovers soon! I hope you don’t mind me adding that in there, just a proud mother here!

    Have a great night friends!!

    @Can’tGetEnough: Missed you friend! You’re a gem, Paisana! So happy for your daughter’s fantastic GPA but sad to hear she is so upset. There is a lot pf pressure on our young people….but so much of it is put on themselves. Even Butler said he was very competetive in Law School and would be very upset if he didn’t get top grade on the pop quizzes (or something like that…I know I read that somewhere). Anyway, you are a real treasure, CGE, and I thank you for being with me in spirit. You should journey down when Coriolanus comes out (Jan. 20th, I think) and join Autumn and Angelsrock and I to see it together. That would be so splendid. Paying homage to our favorite actor. All together!!! :))) Funny thing, I actually heard about Butler’s “moment” at Half Moon Bay from a customer who I was waiting on a big order from. One of the very few women I get to deal with. She typed an email with the subject line “Your fav actor” and sent the page from People magazine. While I was so floored to hear the news about our Butler, and then relieved to find out he was OK, I was incredibly disappointed that I didn’t have a purchase order…!!! There’s no pleasing some of us, I guess. Thank you for being you, CGE! Love and hugs! XXO

    @Autumn:
    “Just adding my 2 cents on Mr. B and children – he clowns around a lot when he’s on the Craig Ferguson Show (one of my other fav Scots) – he mentioned his dear aunt who never had children and that she was very happy – I remember vaguely him saying what a smart woman she was for that choice.”
    .
    CORRECTION:

    He was saying it within another context altogether.
    He mentioned she never had kids and that’s the reason she still looks hot and has such a great figure.

    I assume he likes his women young, tall, and skinny so that having kids will not destroy her figure as much as it might someone who is more full figured. Needless to say, that angered many women who already got pregnant in life as they felt he was excluding them from the group of women he found sexy and desirable. Eventually, he felt had to apologies for it, saying he didn’t mean it the way it sounded. But of course he did.
    .
    That lead many of his fans to conclude he wants a woman that never had kids, and eventually his profile became as follows:

    He likes them young, without kids, tall, skinny, pretty, possibly ethnic looking (but he had his share of blonds too), not in acting or a celebrity, and she must keep a low profile.
    .
    Regarding having kids he told a British reporter recently he wants kids but legitimate ones. Couple that with his previous statements that he will not adopt, and it leads a reasonable person to believe he wants to get married eventually and have his natural kids in a legitimate manner. In addition, he said he would like when his career slows down to settle down and share his life with someone and he sees himself on a farm or some other quiet place raising his kids and being a good father to them. So please don’t put a spin on what he said. I very much doubt the man will remain an unmarried old man behaving like Hugh Hefner, which is what some of you want to believe, as you can’t fathom the idea of him marrying one day someone young and pretty and having a family with her, and it’s not you.

  131. 131
    Pardon me? Says:

    So I’m extremely vacuous and simple-minded if I don’t have kids? Because, of course, my life means absolutely NOTHING if I don’t have them….

    I don’t want to argue either, but my point was this: It’s not the most gracious behavior to label someone as vacuous and simple-minded because their opinion differs from yours. I don’t care what the opinion is, it doesn’t matter – just because it doesn’t fall in line with yours, it doesn’t make it “wrong”.
    And I’m not particularly touchy about anything – thanks for the judgement. I just don’t like that kind of blanket dismissal of people’s opinions – especially since you have no real idea why he believes what he does. None of us do. And not all people were put on this earth to have children – there are other pursuits in life, you know. Gerard may or may not be one of those people – no-one knows except him, and it’s no-one’s business except his.

And anyway, “poor Courtney” seems quite capable of standing up for herself, like any grown woman should be.
    By the way, saying that a comment G made insulted all mothers out there and that he is “extremely vacuous and simple-minded” is not exactly searching for his reasoning regarding women with children, as you suggested. It’s not searching for anything – that opinion is set. Which is why I opposed it.

I don’t know if you know this but that word ‘assume’ can be a very naughty and troublesome word because simply put, it makes an A-S-S out of U and M-E……tut-tut. Do not fear though, please take comfort in the knowledge that I do NOT have sexual/romantic designs on your beloved Mr. Butler:) I already met my A-list movie star crush galore on a film set many years ago:) and he wasn’t your man! I have no trouble saying that I think Mr. Butler is a very handsome man who fits my “type”(over six feet) but I also feel that way about the equally handsome Aaron Eckhart(I searched JJ for threads on him but there was barely a mention of him unfortunately and certainly no conversation/discussion like how there is with GB)… so anyhoo sorry if this disappoints you but if I meet Gerard Butler I will not, I repeat NOT be collapsing into his personal space in absolute orgasmic ecstasy:)

    “Give me a real live man in my bed. If he wants to dress up like the King of Sparta and make love to his queen, then I’m all over it. Oh, I forgot, you think it is awful and dirty for married people to have sex or indulge in sexual fantasies with each other. ”
    .
    OMG! You’re such an idiot!!!! Dressing up for each other is not the issue I’m writing against. Dress up any way you want to entice him and intoxicate him. Wear a sexy outfit – fishnet and high heals to bed, intoxicating lotions and potions and perfumes, even use handcuffs, etc…..
    .
    What i’m talking against is fantasizing or dreaming of being with another man while you’re with your hubby, or just lusting over such a man during the day, as in daydreaming about him, which is what so many of the ladies here do, including you; daydreaming about being with GB in a sexual manner. It’s a form of infidelity, however reduced it is from the actual sex act with another man is, because you’re not giving your man your undivided attention, as another man has your mind.
    .
    I know why you’re so upset, it’s because I really hit home for you. You probably engage in dreaming that GB is doing you while your poor hubby is trying to satisfy you. He probably can’t anymore so you engage in dreaming about GB while hubby is doing you so you can come.

    Just because one likes to date within his own ethnicity, race, or religion doesn’t make one a racist. Some people just feel more comfortable within their own ethnic or religious group. Marriages and relationships are hard as is nowadays, some people just don’t want to add another complexity into the mix. It has nothing to do with being a racist. Don’t be too judgmental with regard to people’s dating preferences. It’s a very personal thing. If you’re Asian as you claim, I’m sure your parents would like to see you with someone from your own ethnic background. Does it make them racists? Of course not.
    .
    But your statements make me believe you are attracted to him for the very reason he was attainable in your mind, as you entertained the idea he would date you when you realized he dated women from other races or ethnicity. So i’m not sure I buy your argument that you wouldn’t touch his d!ck even if it were on diamonds. If you wouldn’t touch his d!ck what do you care about the type of women he dates?
    ..
    Anyway, if you’re young and traditional I think you at least have a chance with him, as opposed to the old hags around here that have nothing to offer him. They have no chance with him. They should stick to their current men and reigniting their relationships. From what he said about his preferences, I believe the man wants a traditional family with a wife and kids.
    ..
    I know it’s hard for some of the women here to accept, but it does look that way from what he himself said about his preferences. Sorry Dar, I doubt Gerry is going to marry you with your 6 kids

His family are traditional but I always wonder deep down if theyl accept me!

    We both like each other a lot and admire him that he doesn’t let all this get to him but it’s hard i like GB because more than any other celeb he always pays great interest in other cultures and people from different walks of life that’s all I have no desire to meet, date or fantasise about him

    @LOLLLLLLL: Hefner was married twice, he even had some long term public relationships, longer than Gerry LOL and has kids, his oldests daughter runs the Playboy empire now and some kid or kids with his second wife who left out of boredom apparently, so not sure what the purpose of the Hef comparisons are beyond Hefner looking foolish with his fake harem at present. I fear Gerry will be joining that club if he hasn’t already but if it makes him happy, there it is. Foolish and the envy of the male population that are not happy in their marriages etc.

    Gerry mentioned seeing himself retired at age 60 on the farm. So is he going to wait until then to start a family. If not 60 maybe 50? If so he better very carefully rethink his out and out rejection of adoption as even a possibility because male infertility for men as they age is a bigger problem than ever and younger and younger men are having issues. Just because you marry a woman half your age doesn’t mean neither of you are not going to have issues reproducing spawn, some that even medical technology can’t solve unless you are willing to use egg or sperm from a donor or rent a womb. Of course if you are not the problem you could always dump the infertile wife or girlfriend and test the potential replacement. Gotta pass on those genes right.

    I do find it odd that a man who has been to South Africa, India and Haiti, and other poor areas of the world, including Paisley according to Gerry, along with doing a movie about Sudanese orphans, that he would wholly exclude adoption as even a possibility. So much for those spiritual life changing journeys, cough cough.

    This poor sad child, LOLLL . I have to question why she is ranting, yes my dear you are ranting and have been for the last 12 hours or more.. You doth protest too much or you are having a psychotic break and I am concerned.

    To be honest, if one were really Butler material you’d be too busy to post on the internet or certainly not an insignificant gossip site for 12 hours, it would not impress him, for sure, just using your own logic, ranting woman. You’d have to be a high fashion model/actress/spokesmodel/philanthropist/businesswoman with a MENSA membership who does extreme sports on the weekends. Yes Gerry’s woman is far too good for him but self made men like to aim high. Yes it is difficult to accept that you, like all those you deride are no more possible a candidate for the affections of Mr. Butler, well except perhaps on a fleeting basis.

    Why do you care about the other people here anyway. If you are as wonderful as you suggest, besides having better things to do for the last 12 hours, the others you deride are certainly no competition for you and many here would admit same and even say take him, you can have him, we just find him fascinating as an actor/producer/sex symbol/enigma/paradox, just like some people find cats or scrapbooking fascinating.

    Only insecure people have to constantly bully others when there is really no point to it. Hate eats away at the soul whether it is self hate or hate directed at others and most hate is really self hate. I think some yoga and meditation would do wonders for your demeanor and help you focus on what is really making you unhappy with your life. Spend the same energy you expend berating other people to analyze what you can do to make your life happier. We all could profit from that sage advice if I do say so myself. No charge for that. It’s my holiday gift. I find Mr. Butler a fascinating study in humanity along with his very curious fandom. Heterosexual males who are wiling to admit to man crushes on the Butler. Young girls who are in lust with a man who is old enough to be their father or even grandfather. Women pretending to be insiders or even pretending to be girlfriends and the like on the internet. I see another book in my future – Fans Gone Wild. Maybe Joe Francis can make that into a video hit?

    Now I usually charge for my wisdom so Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Feliz Navidad, Joyous Kwanzaa and a Joyous Pancha Ganapati to my fellow Hindus. And Happy Hogmanay to Mr. Butler. The fireball swinging sounds like fun.

    I liked your post. I agree! It’s the studying of the fans, not just Gerard Butler, but Brad Pitt and Angelina’s, etc that fascinate me. But honestly I do see the type of woman (she sounds amazing) you described as ever putting up with Butler.

    As for last night, I did not read all the posts, but the ones I did read where sheer madness. When I stated that Butler’s comment about mothers on Ferguson, I in no way meant that every woman should have children. I meant that puts him in a small minded category to me. Its ok to have a different opinion than myself, but to say a women who do not have children are somehow more intelligent is absurd. Or to suggest that women that have children cannot get their figure back (or an even better one) is childish and ignorant. However, if it was a joke, okay. It was just a tactless one.

    @Autumn: @lolita: @Can’tGetEnough: @angelsrock: @redOctober: Thanks again you lovely and amazing women! Just a quick pop on to say hello to some of you. So glad there are some reasonable and sane people here. It’s been a ridiculous 24 hours here, apparently. Honey Bunny was in bed when I arrived home this evening from my mini road trip. Please continue the prayer power. It is much appreciated. CGE, as always you keep us connected with our Butler with photos and tweets, etc. and I for one am grateful for you. Autumn, you’re a real sweetheart and I love your candor. Thank you for reminding me to stay optimistic. Lolita, you are the REAL angel among us. Angelsrock, one can feel the smile on your face even when you post, you are so positive. And RedO, you are a truly spiritual person and I will never forget your description about “feeling the peace”. You are all top notch as humans go and I am so happy you always take the high road. So take care friends, and continue to be safe and happy and kind. Have a PAIRRFECT Christmas! Hugs all around!!

    @Dimples: This is a guilty pleasure and I don’t read about 60% of the rubbish here. I love Butler and so do the other temperate and sane people here who I share with. My husband is well aware of my guilty pleasure and fascination with Butler. He says he prefers it to a fascination for shoes or shopping. Much more economical. I have bonded in a spiritual way with a handful of amazing souls here and I enjoy sharing with them when I can.

    @Dimples: Like your moniker! For me, it’s a guilty pleasure where I can escape from a very stressful job. This is the only site I visit. Fan of Mr. B, but I enjoy the ladies here. Staying positive and kind is easy, but I can get my Scots temper to flare on occasion.

    My basic reasoning is I’ve made some fun cyber friends; the thought processes of others are interesting to read. I hate the bickering and name calling so I skip the drama and enjoy the positive. If I want to relieve stress, I go to the gun range. It’s easier than being mean.

    Enjoy the site and there are some really nice people here. Stay happy, enjoy the holidays and thanks for asking your question. I hope we answered your question.

    @Lolita: That definitely puts things into perspective. I get it. Not sure if I’m the biggest GB fan, but he does have some great fans. Also some that are a bit scary (A bit? Who am I kidding?). With sites like this, you begin to focus more on the fans than the celebrity themselves.

Good for the heart, the soul and the mind, and for that I am very happy. You’re my sistas and I cherish each of you who are fond of sharing with me. Love that we have each other’s backs! (Go CGE!)!

I’ve been fighting a cold today and I forced myself to do some baking and wrap all the gifts. What a woman, huh? LOL Finally taking a break and decided to get caught up on the posts!
    Dimples, thank you for the nice compliment! These ladies are one of the main reasons I come here! I’m a Butler fan of course! I started by just checking out his pics on JJ and then I began reading the posts. Many are toxic, yes, but then you get to these ladies and the toxic nasty ones don’t even matter. I love the interaction we all have and I love throwing in the Butler links and pics! We talk about GB, we’ll mention things in our lives, some of us will need thoughts and prayers–whatever it may be, it keeps us together here! I’ve really grown fond of many here! I do wish we could all get together, we’d definitely have a blast!!

    HI Dimples. It’s easy for me; there are certain people here I do not read; I literally leap frog right over many posts. The negative, nasty folks are well known and I don’t even bother with them. As they say: sometimes you have to take the sweet with the sour. And there are many sweeties here. And I adore Gerry Butler and enjoy the friendly banter that goes on here. Thanks to a few generous ones who keep me up to date with pics, vids, and general GB news. I”m one busy bee and I appreciate the likes of CGE and RedO among others who keep us informed.

    CGE, Ditto, literally. I am fighting a bad cold; I even have laryngitis today. My hubby said it’s been heavenly today. LOL I wrapped all my gifts and even attended an ornament exchange tonight. The ladies in our family have been doing this for years!!! We take turns at different houses each year. My mom, sisters, sisters-in-laws, and nieces…ladies only!!! My sister hosted this year. It was lovely! Now it’s time for NyQuil and a good night’s sleep. I”m exhausted.

    So Gerry’s in NYC and most likely headed to the Highlands for Christmas with the family. I hope he has a restful visit. And I’m wondering what’s next on his working agenda.

    @angelsrock: That’s one of my questions I suppose. I think your very sweet btw, but what is it about his videos, pics that are posted that you love? Sorry, I know I’m being a pest, you don’t have to answer if you don’t want to. I suppose the closest I’ve come to that is catching myself watching a Hugh Jackman film with my mouth open (I’m not ashamed), or realising half way through a Russell Crowe film that wow, he made me forget that he is acting. I guess I’m just mesmerised by the devotion. Nevertheless, heading out. Will check back soon with respect to the responses to my question. Happy Holidays to all. xoxo

    @Can’tGetEnough: Well done! Brilliant! Did I say well done? LOVE the Butler collage of animated facial expressions! Sorry to hear about your cold…you AND angelsrock, apparently….I’m cheering for you both because I KNOW what it is like at this time of year. The only reason I probably don’t have a cold right now is because even cold germs wouldn’t get anything out of me right now. We’re hosting my family on Christmas Day and HB’s family the day after….. good times!!! No, seriously….it is the best gift of all. XXO

    Tonto Says:

    Hello all! I’ve been very busy hangin with my Lone ranger lately. We have a small cheesecake business here where we live that has had us overwhelmed these last few weeks. I try to sneak over here to read what’s going on in Butlerville when I can, but just didn’t have time to post. I enjoy everyone’s contributions and like Dimples has mentioned, many of the ladies that regularly post here are great people to communicate with like, Autumn, Lolita, Joie, Angel, RedO, CGE, Manny, Maggie, God Bless you all, Niknoks and so many others who can bring a ray of sunshine when they post. I call it positive energy. This crazy world we live in these days has so much negativity and too often people like to post garbage just to stir the pot and vent their frustrations with nasty posts just to get a rise out of someone, especially if what is being said doesn’t jive with how they think. It’s too easy on the internet and sites like this for anonymous people to blatantly spout off just for the fun of it too. People getting along and sharing some fun is boring to them so they jump in to get some attention with mean spirited posts hoping to get the dialog more to their frame of mind. As Curious Cat has said in the past. Sometimes it’s fun to exchange information and share what may be going on in our lives with others without getting nasty. And as Lolita said, people often post here from different parts of the country and around the world with one common denominator, GB. So, Thank you to all my JJ friends for keeping this place positive and fun. The negative people can be ignored at least as much as possible.
    Joie de Vivre, I also have been keeping your situation in prayer. My own sister is dealing with some possible health issues right now so I know how it feels as many others here know too. Prayer is the most powerful thing you can give to another person.
    In the mean time, I wish you all a happy, healthy and peaceful Christmas and New year. Hugs to you all.

    I have a question for those of you more experienced in these things.
    Is gb likely to stay for the whole screening of coriolanus at curzon street, London, on 5th January? It’s just I have a ticket for the graham Norton show being filmed at the same time in waterloo. He’s due on the show to be broadcast the following night, so I’m wondering if it will be a prefilmed segment? Not bothered-I like Mr Norton’s naughty humour, and escaping to London.

    @Dimples:

    Good Morning All. Well, it seems I survived the NyQuil and Wine after all. I did sleep like a rock though and I needed that!! A few more errands today to finish up.

    Dimples, you asked “but what is it about his videos, pics that are posted that you love?”

    I have never adored a celebrity in my whole life. I was never one, even as a teen, to swoon over stars and musicians like a lot of my girlfriends did. Back in 2005 I watched Phantom of the Opera and was mesmerized by Gerry’s performance. I googled him and was hooked. I really can’t explain. My family just laughs and goes along with me. They have actually become big fans too. I enjoy following his career and when I catch a glimpse of him in pics and vids, it makes me smile. That’s all. I know it sounds pretty weird. Before 2005, I wouldn’t have gotten it either. Just a fun distraction and guilty pleasure. Everyone should have one of those. It does a body good!!!

    I’d go see the Graham Norton show. I think that would be a lot more fun. He may introduce Coriolanus and then leave. And you wouldn’t really get to see him much if at all. He probably will be a hoot on GN’s show. That show gets crazy. I love it.

    Let us know what you choose and how it goes!

    Joie de Vivre Says:

    @Can’tGetEnough: @angelsrock: Good morning, CGE and Angel! Hope you’re both feeling better today. COCO’s original post directed towards me is gone now. It said something like…”I’m tired of the goody goody posts. If you need a social worker or a clergy, then go see one. This is not the place.” I’m not changing, so take it or leave it…..At the last minute, I decided to change the menu for HB’s family Christmas dinner, so I am heading to the grocery store (UGH!). Today is sunny and bright around here and I feel the same way. HB is in very good spirits. He’ll be done visiting his customers by 10:00 am and I am pretty much off. Had a year-end meeting with my boss yesterday and my sales increased 28% over last year. Cause for a celebration, don’t you think? Angel, I stumbled across Butler sort of the same way, but only in April of this year. So very out of character for me, as well. I’ve never swooned over anyone except HB. His endearing personality just won me right over. Have a lovely day friends! XXO

    @Tonto: Merry Christmas, Tonto! You are a good, positive person and I appreciate you and your optimism. Be safe and happy and enjoy your holidays!

    Congrats on your sales increase! This is good. Things are looking positive! I’m so glad for that and I’m so glad you’re feeling better this morning. I hope your HB is staying positive too and I have no doubt with YOU around, he can’t be anything but positive! =)

    @angelsrock: So glad I happened on here this morning and saw your post. I’m the same way. I never cared a whole lot about celebs until I came across Gerry, and he wasn’t exactly a celeb when I first saw him. He was in Attila the Hun (I remember people on TV calling the show Attila the Hunk in jest! LOL) Then I didn’t think much about him for a few years until I got a computer of my own and Googled him. Didn’t dare spend time on my work computer obsessiving over him. It was all over for me then. I still don’t care about any other actor etc. Just Gerard. He’s got something that catches me. Sometimes I think I spend too much time on my “hobby.” I’m a Butler trivia expert who gets mifed when I read articles that contain wrong information. LOL. Oh, well, it doesn’t hurt anyone. I also have a RL, but a little bit of it is devoted to Gerry.

Would we have some fun and make some mischief! Working with mainly men, my women friends are scattered and few. So all of you make up my “Female” family in CyberSpace. I am a lucky women indeed to have so much GREAT Estrogen in the ether.

    It’s amazing that some of us have found each other and we skip the BS to remain pleasant, uplifting, and not so jaded. In might help that we “might” be a bit more mature (in my case older) and have weathered a few bumps in the road and storms so we have a different perspective. The younger ladies have their own bumps to hit and will – that’s life. Some of them will become more enlightened and understand in time.

    Women are the builders of life – not the wrecking crew! Some feel that they have to tear down others to feel better – I hate this about my gender. I don’t compete with other women – never have!

    Ladies, you are all some of the brightest, kindest, most genuine people I have had the chance to meet even in a cyber venue. I cherish the times we spend here sharing our lives; “fantasizing” about Mr. B (my hubby chuckles as his fantasy is JLO – his hall pass :)) – kidding- just enjoying Mr. B and those green eyes; and just being supportive. Since I can’t be with my real family at Christmas, I’ll enjoy spending it with you on JJ. Sunday I head to a SOME shelter with some other volunteers and we cook holiday dinner for the shelter – it makes me happiest!

    Thank you for helping me through a difficult year in spite of political differences, views on the world and people, etc. I count my blessings every day and include each of you in them. Merry Christmas!

    Hubby is coming home early and we are headed to a movie – yes a real movie with popcorn – MGP was the last movie I saw totally alone!

    Hugs – Mistletoe – Wine & Nyquil – Cheesecake – all around!

    Guilty pleasure and an outlet from stressful job. Some don’t like me and some appreciate me because I tend to speak my mind, but oh well, I am who I am.
    .
    If you stick around you will learn that some smart ladies are here and genuinely can make your day better just with their uplifting attitude. Beside the peeks into their worlds wherever they are in the world can be humbling. I enjoy most people here too. I went through a very hard time a couple of years ago and posters here renewed my faith in hope. It is hard to not keep in contact with that.
    .
    BTW I would be missed… if I left who would Eve stalk? I don’t want her wandering the streets listlessly calling “Manny I hate you” during this cold weather. I just can’t deny her my presence to target for her spleen-venting. :)

    Just to add my twopenneth, I only noticed Mr b earlier this year, despite owning a copy of psily! Spent spring listening to poto instead of learning lines for an amdram I was on! Out of character for me too.
    Is it the animal magnestism (hubby was 6ft 2, size 11s and dark wavy hair, beard and moustache when we wed), or the conundrum- who is gb and how much is brand extension? We’ll never know how much of a sensitive, spiritual soul or frightening player he is. The charisma and unrealized potential draws you in anyway! Although I wish he wouldn’t overegg a point sometimes. Found myself shouting at him to stop talking b*llocks during the wrath hour long interview!
    Lovely that some festive harmony has descended on the board.
    Wishing you all, too numerous to mention, a very happy holiday and a new year that ticks every box. Think it would have to be a midatlantic party!

    @Manny: Hi Manny! LOL – I am an enigma in more ways than that. Gun range, an art exhibit, a pair of Manolos or my steel-toed biker boots – I’m a mixed bag of contradictions.

    Gun range is to stay qualified yet wow it is stress relief – funny to envision people while taking aim. Kick-Boxing is another; Yoga; and a propensity to cook when I’m home. The latter is what I’m doing Xmas day at a shelter in DC.

    Have a wonderful holiday in UT! Pray you don’t get too much snow. Friends in Albuquerque emailed 2 feet there – ouch! Enjoy your holiday with your beautiful hubby and best wishes for all your dreams coming true in 2012.

    You are bloody brilliant…. brand extension. So simple to describe something so puzzling. He is an engima and I believe he likes that to be his public persona. For me he is a good distraction from RL sometimes but I wouldn’t want him in my life. He is like a Monét painting for me. Breathtaking from afar but the closer you get the more you can see the ugly bumps and imperfections. Butler from afar…that is the way I prefer him. :)

    She might not be that pretty, but she doesn’t look cheap or sl/utty, just a young girl out with her friend at a nightclub.

    In any case, she said he asked for her number but doesn’t say if she gave it to him or it’s just implied she did. Or, maybe he asked for her number but never followed on really getting it. Sometimes, he just likes to say things that sound good lol.

    Explain that reason
    I look at the face
    will not want to note
    you still in love
    your eyes show passion
    and false feelings
    by the fact that you reject
    while you’re dying inside
    you know I can not forget
    much less deceive

    Still another man not born
    you can fall in love
    if before inventing the love
    and I was loving you
    nor the love of Romeo and Juliet
    became so large
    I’ll be honest and confess
    I’m not lying I miss you
    and although much time was spent
    I keep your picture yet.

    And where will this love
    all illusion
    I wonder at every turn
    I know that I failed
    but your pride and your attitude
    prevent me recover
    I feel love
    hidden passion
    I also reject
    me not you
    I know more
    you still love me
    no matter how far from me today
    I’ll miss tomorrow.

    Today disguise it by my feeling
    very willing to overcome
    even say you hate me
    and that love was you
    Convince me look at my eyes and
    you already do not love me
    and then they
    I will make no more songs
    say no more words.

    Disguise to say that I love
    that was in the past
    But love can not forget
    is always recorded
    in your diary history is preserved
    of two lovers
    novels of love poems
    I lived with you the
    remember when you became a woman
    in that morning
    when you sing with my guitar
    and then you kissed me
    no girl do not play that damage
    knowing you love me

    And where will this love
    all illusion
    I wonder at every turn
    I know that I failed
    but your pride and your attitude
    prevent me recover
    refuse to feel love
    hidden passion
    I also reject
    me not you
    I know you more
    you still love me
    no matter how far from me
    I’ll miss tomorrow…………………hermosa cancion de AVENTURA…….llamada ROMEO Y JULIETA………….AMORCITO I LOVE YOU…………dulces besos con pasion te envio……….adios.

    Fritzie – If you are reading this, hope you are well and all the best for 2012.

    @Can’tGetEnough: @Manny: Thanks. I pop in and out depending on what’s happening with my daily stuff and goings on:)…I also have been trying to appreciate more fully living at the beach since things will be changing in 2012.

    I see that Mr. Butler made it safely to his homeland, I was wondering what happens to his little dog when he is away?? I mean he just was gone for two months or so and now he is away for The Holidays and then has promo work for Coriolanus…what happens to his little pug?? Do you think a staff member takes her to their home for the weeks he is gone or does someone just go to his home and feed her and let her do her business morning and night and then leave her alone in the house for the rest of the time??…I know probably no one here really knows and I shouldn’t be asking for speculation but as a crazy dog lover who has resisted the temptation to get one because of absences I can’t help but wonder what happens to her during those times…

    @God Bless yoou all!: On this evening (its almost midnight hereI would like to tell my first meeting with). I was 4 or 5 years old. My mother and I went to visit her sister. While we were there I heard her husbend singing a song in a strange language. I asked my mother what does he sings? She said it’s a pray. I said -but I can’t understand it and she said – because it’s a Christian song. I asked: why is he singing it? My mom said because long time ago bad people wanted to harm him (that was her way to tell me about the holocaust) and his parents left him in a monastery and thats how he was saved. The priest taught him to sing Ave Maria and he sings it every day. Mary christmas to you and to everyone here.♥

    And he doesn’t look like a lumberjack. He’s dressed casual and comfy for an overnight flight, what do you want him to wear, a suit? He always wears casual pants and leather jacket for traveling. No surprises there.
    .
    I think he actually looked good in the face and his curly hair gives him a younger appearance, indicated by people who tweeted that he looked very handsome, as opposed to the times people said he looked old.
    .
    As far as I’m concerned, that’s all that matters. He can change his clothes whenever he wants, but looking good or plain handsome is not always attainable.

    keepnitreel Says:

    The look on his face was like a mug shot in the airport photo. Maybe he’s still got that 100 yard stare from his near death experience. And as far as his mum, she’s probably used to his antics by now and not much surprises her. That’s not to say she doesn’t worry but what can she do? He’s a grown man and he was probably on the phone with her before he got in the ambulance knowing she might hear about it the wrong way. She can just put him extra kitchen duty!

    Merry Christmas to all and have a safe New Year!

    @she
    What’s wrong with you? Can’t you read? Who even complained about Red? Not me. I mentioned that Red only posts what she finds on the Internet about Gerry, just as the rest of us do. And none of us knows for sure what his actual plans are. To think I was criticizing her is beyond the pale of good reason, which you probably don’t have anyway. And it’s a shame you can’t read either.
    .
    @Cupcake
    Of course you have a right to an opinion, I never argue with that, although so many here would like to shut down everyone else that doesn’t agree with them. But you asked a question that has a quick and obvious answer. Red doesn’t know where he’ll be. No one does, as no one here knows him personally, although some of us might know people that know him. Still no one here knows his plans, or even professes to know his plans. We’ll have to wait and see where he’ll turn up next. Another possibility is Las Vegas.

    You had a very hard day yesterday. When such things happen, it puts the rest of your life in context. Suddenly you realize what’s important and what’s not. This place is not your real life, and as such it has no power over you. You shouldn’t take anything said here, good or bad, seriously to the point of disrupting your life. I hope you realize, I wasn’t complaining or criticizing you at all. We are all grateful you take the time to post what you find about Gerry.

    Scr/ew all the nutcases that cause such hostility and anger. They are not worth our time. I just ignore them. They are the same people that try to shut down ideas and remove posts they disagree with. However, when they get called on it, they complain there is too much hatred. They should look at themselves first for the source of that hatred.

    RedO, Angel, Lolita, JDV, CGE – hey gals! Merry Christmas! RedO so sorry about your friend’s daughter – I have to believe there’s a better plan for her – a friend just said to me yesterday about a colleague we knew that passed recently – God needed another angel! A huge hug for everyone who has lost someone recently! Keep the faith whatever yours may be!

    Shelter was amazing this year! I did all of the sweet potato casseroles which I love making! Glad I came from a big family – making it for 500+ is a little more tricky! More women & children than usual – so many people from all walks of life – talked with a 93 yo who remembers the Great Depression – told me that things will get better! A 93 yo with a positive view – I had to hug him tight! Bless his soul!

    My big Xmas present to myself was a Universal Remote so when I am home I can now not use 20 remotes – best gift ever next to my Mac & my kindle. Two things I pack to go on my travels along with a universal electricity converter – my backpack gets heavy!

    Hope everyone had a pleasant day with their families and friends! Stay happy, healthy, travel safe and stay sane! Many blessings to you all!

    Back to work tomorrow for a few days then another 5 days off then I’m traveling again for a few weeks or a month – one never knows! I’ll pop in if I can!

    Question Says:

    What happened to all the fun posters that used to post here a year or two ago? They disappeared. Only Manny pops in from time to time from that original group.

    How did we end up with posters that bring us down by telling us about their tragedies, their sick husbands, their battle with cancer, their kids GPA troubles, their work at soup kitchens, their hormonal and menopausal issues, their travel to third-world countries to tend to the disadvantaged, and on and on?

    Why do they feel this is the place to share such stuff? The chat is better than the board for such things.

    People come here to escape from reality and the everyday. They come here to be close to someone they’re attracted to and admire. They want to know about his personality, what he is presently doing, hear his interviews and things he says and believes, and to see the latest pictures of him. People don’t come here to hear your life stories, issues, and troubles. This is insane. The board took a nosedive ever since these weighing-down posters decided to treat this board as their shrink’s couch. Some of you really need to get a life.

    @Autumn: Autumn, good to see you! Sweet potato casserole for over 500 people? Seriously? LOL You’re an angel! For real!! =) If you don’t get back on here, please travel safely and say hi when you can! We’ll miss you as always!

    @Question: Autumn pretty much summed it up. When there is no “new” news about GB, we just chat about everything and anything. We are human. Some people talk about the good things that have happened to them, some talk about the bad things when they just need a “distant” ear. If you think about it, you really did the same thing. Your post wasn’t really about GB. It was about something that bothers you and you had to say it. When the posts get nasty or it’s a topic that doesn’t interest me, I skip over them. You have the option to do that as well.

    I think you need to find something better to do with your boring life, and if you need a shrink by all means do go and seek one out. This board is about GB and not about your “fulfilled” life.

    Some of you people make me feel sorry for you. I can just see your lack of fulfilled lives, so you find activities for yourselves and then come here to boast about them Seriously, you do need a life.

    Oh…but wait… who’s going to appear now out of the woodwork and tell us how fantastic her hubby is or how sick her hubby is, or how much food she cooked…….please find a new interest to occupy your middle-aged lives.

    @Question: Question – I have your answer. Instead of attacking people who actually do make a difference in the world like Autumn perhaps you should work on your anger and hostility toward the more sane people on the thread. She answered you sufficiently, but you had to be a silly twit and answer back with more vitriol. Take your toys, coal in your stocking and go play elsewhere. Out of all of the people who post here, she is one of the kindest, most genuine – she doesn’t need therapy. Perhaps if you read some of her former posts, you’d understand why she’s here like the rest of us.

    So, Mr B parties in NYC until the last available moment and arrives in Scotland on Xmas Eve too jet lagged to participate in his sister’s planned festivities. How rude. And last night was out at the pub. I do hope this was a family outing, and not as reported by WO last year, when he frequented local nightclubs during his brief visit home.
    As he will leave in a couple of days for somle model strewn exotic NY event, IMO it’s extremely disrespectful not to spend the whole visit joining in with whatever the family has arranged, however boring. Anything less you might expect from a self absorbed teenager or student, not a grown middle aged man.

Why shouldn’t he catch up with good friends in NYC @ Christmas. He has been working really hard and had a near death experience. I thought the tweet said he was @ some family thing but was heading home because he was jet lagged. He always makes the effort to get home for Christmas no matter what. Is the Graham Norton show being shot on the 4th Jan, the Wed before it airs? I see Noel from Oasis is one of the other guests so Gerry will have to do all in his power to stop himself breaking into Wonderwall. Maybe he’ll hang around for the New Year but then again he needs to attend as many model parties as he can if he is ever going to find himself a Mrs!

    Okay, this is just to get attention and cause trouble because it is total bullshit. Yeah, that’s why he weathered a horrible snow storm last year to get back home. Trust me, he loves his family and they love him. It’s a rewarding experience, no matter how long he stays there. They do tons during that time from seeing movies, to big meals, and he loves to shop buying perfect well-thought gifts for everyone. And to exchanging tales. And he had a whopper this year. He nearly drowned, or have you forgotten this already? Or has the ice in your veins frozen you completely? (eye roll)

    We lost two over the holiday at the hospital to alcohol-related injuries. I was with one of the families when the doctor gave them the news.

    22 minutes ago

    I have to admit that I felt the same way that a lot of you are feeling about him partying in NYC and then getting to Scotland too tired to enjoy Christmas with his family, but—–none of us really know the circumstances and how GB really spends his days. All that was really reported in NYC was that he was at his friend’s club. We don’t know what he did during the day. Maybe he had other business to attend to that prevented him from flying home to Scotland sooner.
    From what we, as fans, have seen and heard, his family is important to him. He seems to have great affection for his nieces as well. If the above tweet is true, then he is still in Scotland. He may not have been a barrel of fun on Christmas Day due to his jet lag, but it appears he’s still home and around his family. So he went to a pub last night? We KNOW the man is fidgety as anything. Maybe it was possible that he did indeed spend the entire day with his mom and sister and nieces and then met up with friends at the pub?? I’m sure he still has MANY childhood friends he sees when he’s there. Point is, we can be judgmental, but we don’t have all the facts and we don’t know what he’s doing every single minute of everyday. All we can really say at this point is that he appears to still be in Scotland. He could have slept Christmas Day away at his sister’s and then left yesterday—but he didn’t.
    We can all come to some sort of conclusion based on tweets and FB sightings and say the man loves partying more then his family, but that certainly would be an unfair statement, especially since none of us know what’s really going on in this man’s life. Just my opinion of course!

    Well what sort of business happens in a club in the wee hours??? :)))

    Butler loves his family and his mates. Maybe he loves to spread himself thin running here and there and everywhere being the grand marshall of celebrations. :)
    .
    BTW are you keeping warm???

    LOL! This is exactly what she wants from you, attention. This is outrageous! This tragedy didn’t happen to her or her family, and yet she is getting the sympathies. The family of the deceased should be receiving sympathy from their friends and family. RedOctober should not be getting sympathies for one of her aquentence’s death from a gossip board on the Internet filled with strangers that don’t know either one, the dead girl or Redoctober.
    .
    This is weird. There is something very pathetic in this situation. Why come here and spend two days telling us about tragedies happening to your friends if not do it solely to get attention and sympathy from total strangers?
    It’s obvious that this is what’s going on here and you fell for it, as you fall for it each and every time. Think, before you reply to every idiotic comment. Some of the comments here have double meanings.

    Well, I see someone is missing their Christmas cheer, I say someone as it’s becoming glaringly obvious that it’s one person making the majority of the nasty posts. They seem to to able to change their monikers but unable to change their writing style, including their spelling and grammatical errors.

    You haven’t been able to fly NYC to London in under 5 hours since the days of Concorde, it’s about 7 hours now, a little longer the other way around, it’s about the Scotland. Maybe GB should have sacrificed a little partying so he could be a little less jet-lagged when he saw his family, after all he doesn’t see them that often.

    It is always horrific and devastating when a child dies no matter whether that child is family or not. You and your friend’s family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    @Joie de Vivre:

    I hope you and your HB had a good Christmas and that your HB is feeling better.

    Well I have been blessed with an amazing Christmas, a good friend of mine had a baby on Christmas Eve and my brother and his hubby announced that are going to be parents in July, so I am going to be an Aunty for the 7th time, it also takes the pressure of me for a couple of years.

    Wishing everyone on here a happy and healthy new year, that includes all the ‘people’ that come on here purely just to attack others, I feel they need prayers more than anyone else.

    Haha I like that. Maybe there is hope for some on here yet. Don’t worry about the thumbs down. Some on here don’t like when you are funny, make reasonable observations or do not use the same moniker for years (yes, some are on here for years).

    Tonto Says:

    RedO I can only repeat what has been said here already. When tragedy hits those near and dear to you, you can’t help but sympathize and care how they are dealing with it.
    As for those(Sympathy Sucker) who can’t understand our sympathy and caring for Red O and her friend, maybe you haven’t been around here long enough to know who Red O is or that she is one of the nicest posters that comes here and gives us links to news and pics of GB. To accuse her of trying to get attention is like accusing Mother Teresa of not having any compassion for her fellow man. You seem to be the one trying to get attention so perhaps the phrase, “Hello pot meet kettle” may have some meaning for you. If we don’t discuss GB enough for you here, try the fan sites. I hear they are almost exclusive in GB discussions. In the mean time have a great day!

    Who is the stupid woman that agreed to donate her eggs to gays so they can have kids artificially? I wouldn’t want gays raising my kids, teaching more children to be gay.

    Very true and well said. I love your post.

    Say what’s on your mind without the usual communists trying to shut you up. They hate it when you makes observations about their behavior on the thread and proceed to bully you. Don’t let them. In fact, you should bully them back. LOL! It angers then to no end when you bully them back, the azzholes.
    .
    LMAO! and they get upset when you don’t use the same moniker, as if you owe them something. You owe them nothing. Sh!t is what you owe them.

    @lolita:

    You are most kind. Tonto you mentioned Mother Teresa ( a woman I admire with all my heart)
    She’s said:

    “People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
    If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
    If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
    If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
    The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
    Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
    For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
    ― Mother Teresa

    I think it says it all.

    Tonto Says:

    Well said Red O. Mother Teresa was a woman admired all over the world. She was a great humanitarian. She knew that God was love and she lived it every day of her life. I’m sorry, I usually advocate ignoring the mean spirited posters, but when they pick on someone who really doesn’t deserve it, it brings out a negative response. You did what I should have done and ignored them. Some days you can’t sit there and do nothing even though it may be a wasted effort. My best wishes to you and yours.
    Lolita, you put it correctly. Why people feel the need to attack someone for having a heart is beyond me. My wish is that the coming year brings us all more hope and joy.

    Sympathy Sucker Says:

    @Tonto:
    The issue is not about having a heart you dummy. It’s about informing everyone on an anonymous forum that someone you know had died, all in order to gain sympathy and attention from a public forum. That’s the issue at hand and the fact that an idiot like you and others here don’t recognize how pathetic it is, is really chilling.

    I think he’s found his best hair look in a while. Seems like he’s been searching for a look. And since Beowulf,-vs300, right to the very short look in Frankie, well those were all good, but the last few years his hair off screen has been kind of confused.
    So, glad he didn’t drown, and hope he goes with a look of his own short or long, that fits him.

    I had a friend who made everything ‘about her’ I couldn’t really explain it, but when she told me one day all about everyone having to carry her, or let her lean on them as her legs wobbled at a funeral, not a close friend or relative, for the first time the phrase “It isn’t about you!!” came to me clearly.
    That fits quite well here.
    How did Gerry’s accidental dunking get to this?
    Glad he is OK.
