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!

You are also assuming a lot about other people who really don’t deserve to be included in your assumptions and your lashing(s) toward me!! ***SORRY LADIES*** Do you know that ‘assuming’ things about people can be extremely problematic?………………………….. 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:)

    You are exactly the type of woman I was describing in my post – married, her hubby doesn’t do it for her as much anymore, she is too old for GB and maybe can’t bear him any children, but she dreams about him in her fantasies nevertheless. Then, to make herself feel better for not being able to be with him, she starts detracting from him calling him a socio or gay just to make her sorry self feel better.

    Yes, I believe the things I wrote against some of you on his threads but it’s mostly for fun, as i was referring to Dar’s crazy comments at first. Then, when Anna said she is annoyed at peeps who wish Gerry found the ONE, I just couldn’t resist pointing out the hypocrisy of her and others who feel like her.
    ..
    To be honest, I am having a great time watching all of you getting shocked, angry, amazed, and annoyed about some hilarious comments regarding some of your hypocrisy. Maybe you’re so worked up because some of my arguments do hit home with some of you.
    .
    You thou protest too much, that’s clear as day…..

  • LOLLLLLLL

    @justsayin’too:
    “you definitely don’t “know stuff” cause my hubby rocked my world last night” .
    .
    Yeah right! I believe that like I believe how sexy you are, according to your description of yourself, and how hot your man is, also according to you. Needless to say, I believe you, NOT.
    .
    “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.
    So pitiful.

    How is an old woman such as yourself going to teach a bad boy who’s a buff 6-2 a lesson?
    ..
    I think what will probably happen is he will garb you and throw you inside the old-age home, where you belong, for some 80-year old to spank you silly until said 80-year old keels over form a heart attack. LOL!
    .
    That’s probably what’s going to happen when “Keepnitreal” and GB meet and she flashes the handcuffs in his face.
    .
    Hahahahah……..Keep on dreaming babe cause probably that’s all you’ll ever have. Aren’t you too old to have a dirty mind?

  • LOLLLLLLL

    @Anna:
    “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”
    .
    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

  • LOLLLLLLL

    @justsayin’too:

    “Your opinions are so full of hate and venom with anyone that thinks differently than you”
    .
    How do my opinions make me so hateful when all I’m suggesting to you is to reignite your present relationship, instead of daydreaming about GB? GB is unattainable while you’re hubby is. All you need is to start focusing on him.

    You’re really hard headed aren’t you? I noticed you don’t understand a lot of things.
    .
    @So sad.:
    Why is dragging you all back into reality so sad? I think you all need an infusion of reality about the situation. GB wants them young without kids so focus on hubby for a change and see where that leads you. You might discover you are happier than you ever were before. I didn’t realize that fidelity to one’s marriage was such an unacceptable thing.

  • LOLLLLLLL

    @Courtney:
    You’re lucky you look great after you had 2 kids. Protect your figure. Looking good is a great source for woman’s well-being and self-worth. I too work on my figure a lot – eat well and exercise to maintain my looks. Don’t have kids yet but I’m young, I have plenty of time.. But I figure you have to start young for it to last into your 40s, 50s and beyond.

    Oh yes they were. You are the only one so offended it makes me think maybe you’re so hideous you know GB wouldn’t look at you twice and the last thing you needed was to hear form someone telling you the TRUTH. Otherwise, how could you take my comments so seriously?
    Pleas listen to your own advice, this is indeed the Internet. This is not RL, and GB is not your lover or spouse either way.
    ..
    I never claimed anything. I just told Courtney to protect her looks and that is what I do, and you and some other beetch got on my case. Honestly, I have no interest in wasting my time with you. You obviously got offended to your core because you did think you’re in his league.

  • Anna

    @LOLLLLLLL:

    You have your points and I’m not disagreeing with them I’m not generalising on ppl being racist on their dating preferences except that it takes guts sometimes to be direct about it! My boyfriend is Irish and I get ripped to shreds by women even my English friends started resenting me, we get dirty looks sometimes when were out together! His family are traditional but I always wonder deep down if theyl accept me! My family are ok but get a hard time from the men in my culture even though they date White women and everyone is ok with that!

    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

  • Manny

    Seems Eve is back to spamming again……..

  • haha

    @Manny:
    Yup, this looks like Eve’s fingertips all over it.
    Calling herself Keepnitreal these days.

  • Hollywood Gossiper

    @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.

  • justsayin’too

    LOLLLLL- You’ve got some kind of spanking fetish in your head as you keep mentioning it, and you think GB is going to be that manly man to take you and have his way with you. If you listen to what all his leading ladies say about him, he’s the opposite. They have repeatedly said he acts immature and like a 14 year old boy so maybe you are going to have to forget your silly fantasy of the fictional he- man GB and look at the real one that has insecurities and commitment issues. You may have to spank him.LOL
    As for me, having fantasies and role playing have nothing to do with infidelity, but you’re so psychologically immature you think one person will fulfill all your hopes and dreams and you are going to live happily after ever with GB-NOT!!!! Oh I forgot you’re divorced so you definitely need to be giving advice to women on here with successful decades long relationships!!!!

  • Deepak Choprah

    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.

    Either way who cares. Why is everyone letting a troll upset them? If we don’t reply to her she wouldn’t continue replying to everyone else. The reason we have so many upsetting posts is because people were annoyed enough last night to fight with her. I say ignore any post that upset you.
