Gerard Butler Recovering After Surfing Incident

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!

    @Anna:

    Anna, you say it cracks you up that people claim to know Butlers intentions. Yet, the very next paragraph you yourself claim to know his intentions. What a hypocrite!

    None of us know what the man is TRULY like unless we have spent some significant time in his presence associating with him.

    Everything being presented on this site from his fans is more than likely nothing more than speculation and innuendos.

  • Lyn

    Thank god you are alright!

    @Truth:

    Ahhh I was so waiting for woman to jump to his defence I also said hope he proves me wrong but stating the things and actions about him since he came on the scene 10 odd years ago so doesn’t make me a hypocrite just seeing both sides of the coin! However i do stand by saying that woman can be so pathetic at times that they fall for a mans looks, charms not GB in particular before u bite my head of! It’s cause of silly women who can’t see past that give men the authority to precieve all women like that !

    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.

    No one knows for sure – hopefully, he just lives his life, stays happy, and enjoys his family and the holidays. Here’s wishing all of you the same!

    @Anna:
    “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!”
    .
    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 bitches 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

    @Joie de Vivre: JDV, so glad to see you on here! I’ve missed you! Glad to see that things are better to a degree – think positively. You’ve been in my thoughts, prayers and sending you as much positivity as I can. Your hubby will be fine – I know stuff :) Again, I’m very sorry about your friend – in this life, if we find one best friend we are very lucky indeed.

    Huge hug and a mental margarita to you! I’ll be home for several days until the New Year so I’ll be seeing you here on JJ. Hitting the hay – 4:30a comes early in WDC. All my best,

    Hahaha I’m just amused how far ppl go to make assumptions I’m actually a uni student so none of your description above fits me! And if it helps I’m Asian so I’m very traditional I admit im a fan if his work and love the fact he isn’t racist and dates women of different ethincity that made me admire him but I can honestly say that I wouldn’t touch him if his d!ck was on diamonds I just makes me mad that however a man people assume young or good girl will accept certain people because they are rich or famous that was my point and I wasn’t implying on just GB! And by the way I wouldnt have fake fantasies I’m pretty much in touch with reality although I do wish him the best

    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.

    *

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to all and to all a good LIFE!!!! God bless us, every one. And here’s to our common denominator, our beloved Butler! May God bless and keep him safe, happy and good! :))) Love and hugs to all! XXO

    @Autumn:

    Joie, glad you popped on! I do believe that Autumn “knows stuff too” so I HAVE to believe your honey will be just fine as well. I’m still sending a lot of prayers and positive thoughts your way! Please stop by again and let us know how everything is going.

    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!!

    You’d never know by a lot of the posts this evening that this is the Holiday Season:( In fact it seems more like the seventh circle of hell tonight!!……Wasn’t the Butler is going to flirt with(insert your selection here) or recreate with(insert your selection here) or settle down with(insert your selection here) or procreate with(insert your selection here) vociferous insulting fight just two threads ago??…wasn’t it???…was it???….Oh well, I guess the Holiday Spirit has passed over the GB JJ threads except for the usual handful of reasonable, respectful, thoughtful folk…nothing new under the sun I guess…..Anyway……I wish you all(yes the naughty as well as the nice although I wish the naughty would try to join the nice now) a very Happy, Healthy Holiday Season!!!!…Good wishes for celebrations of Hanukkah, Christmas, Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa and other festivities:) Good wishes to believers and non believers alike. I think that there is probably a very diverse group of people who lurk and post on JJ so I hope I am including everyone but if I haven’t I apologize!…On a personal note, I don’t know if anyone else here is mourning the passing of the vibrant Christopher Hitchens(he died on December 15) but I miss his logical, reasonable arse. Oh, how I miss Hitch right now!!…..Positive thoughts and energy to all and especially those who are facing tough times this season whether they, their loved ones or others are experiencing health issues, family issues, financial issues or other things…….****Best Wishes****

  • Joie de Vivre

    @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

  • Courtney

    @Autumn:

    Wow if he really said that on Craig Ferguson, hopefully he was kidding about. If not, he insulted every mom out there. Extremely vacuous and simple minded.

  • Barnie

    Glad he will be ok

  • LOLLLLLLL

    @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.

  • Pardon me?

    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….
    Hopefully Santa brings you a clue this Christmas. Happy holidays.

  • Pardon me?

    @Courtney:
    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.

    Jealous much?
    .
    Don’t be ridiculous woman. I’m not saying it because of my youth and looks. I’m saying it because of what he said himself about his preferences. Why don’t you listen to the man himself instead of pretending otherwise. And…please don’t turn it around. It’s not about me; it’s about you, pity-inducing bunch.
    .
    Anyway, I do think some of you are taking me way too seriously. Some of my original comments were meant for laughs but some of you just got so offended. It makes me believe that I did hit home somehow with some of my comments, which is why some are you are so angry and hurt. C’mmon! Get a grip.

    @dargabriel: Your karma is negative. You will bring to you what you send out in to the universe and you send out hate and evil thoughts! You should be aware and very careful where you walk.

    Gabriel has spoken.

  • So sad.

    @LOLLLLLLL:

    I think it is YOU that is jealous. You have no idea what anyone looks like here and just because you profess to be fit and young doesn’t mean you really are. And sense you think no one should take what you say seriously must mean you are not what you claim to be.

    This is the internet and people lie. In fact, you could be a man for all we know. But your comments were not meant for amusement. .

  • LOLLLLLLL

    Ok, there are too many concurrent arguments going on here. We have me and a couple of you that got so offended, you’d think Gerry himself told you he’s not interested in you. All I was doing was mentioning what he said regarding his preferences about women.
    .
    Then we have Dar and Gab exchanging fantasies about the angels.
    .
    And finally, we have Pardon me? pounding poor courtney for trying to figure out exactly what he said about women who had children.
    .
    Some of you need to lighten up. It’s just a gossip board.

Look you; I’ve been faithful to myself and very much a monk, so don’t threaten me, you are falsehood, take the rose colored glasses off, you do not know the road I’ve been down, I’ve dealt with someone’s madness and misuse of powers for way too long, enough is enough. I am pretty much invinsible. I send you much light with my gold reys, be happy, now here’s a universal hug. Dargabriel

  • Do you know?

    @LOLLLLLLL:
    You are speaking to “Conc Mhor”. I know her style,. She gets angry and offended. She takes everything too seriously. She is in her forties but really thinks she can have Gerard once she meets him. lol, it’s too funny how upset she gets. I cannot stop laughing because I know it’s her.

  • LOLLLLLLL

    @Do you know?:
    I’m not familiar with her but if you say so.
    Whoever it is, I feel sorry for them taking Gerard wanting them or not so seriously.

  • Do you know?

    @LOLLLLLLL:
    Yes, even “keepnitreal” who goes totally ballistic when people argue with her or have other opinions than her, had some fun comments for you and she moved on after a while. Truest me, this is Just sayin too (which we know), Kim (which we know), Conc Mhor, and possibly Autumn or Can’t Get Enough changing their monikers and posting offended comments.

  • Pardon me?

    @LOLLLLLLL:
    Uh, “pounding poor Courtney”??? A little less drama, please. Expressing an opinion is not “pounding”. There was no name-calling or personal attacks like a lot of other people seem to enjoy here. 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. Please re-read the comments before trying to cause an argument or trying to equate a rational discussion with that nonsense that Dar spouts. Thanks.

  • So sad.

    @Do you know?:

    You’re a silly fool! I’m the one who can’t stop laughing!

  • Do you know?

    @So sad.:
    If I wasn’t right about you, you wouldn’t bother to reply. Your actions are just another confirmation I’m right.
