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!

    @niknoks:
    That’s right. I forgot about that. She did tell people she is here to make her point and not here to be liked. I only meant her last posts from a few pages ago sounded somewhat positive.

    @@Manny:
    Several other posts from different people also disappeared last night and never came back. Only LOLLLLL’s. The same happens with WOW. A bunch of posts disappear after a big fight on the thread and only WOW’s re-appear. So JJ isn’t doing it. And yes, it is very easy to do it yourself. As easy as copy and paste.

  • @Manny

    @FYI:
    Possibly. I haven’t noticed other posts disappear, except those of LOLLLLL.
    .
    As I said, why are we letting posts we don’t like upset us?

    I remember her posting about a month ago basically the same stuff. She always says we are all old and Gerry wouldn’t be interested in us, as he likes young women without kids. It’s not the first time she posted these comments and yet each time people get so upset and spend pages analyzing her posts.

    Either way it doesn’t matter who she really is. She posts her stuff always the same way and we always get so upset.

  • God Bless yoou all!

    Philippians 4:4-9
    4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
    8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

    That is so funny! How old is it? It looks recent. Love to see him on his bike. Love it! Hope it is recent. Thanks! Bike rides is so much fun. Guess he knows his way about the city. There’s a new movie coming out about a NYC bike messenger… (this made me think of it).

    @Deepak Choprah:

    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.

    @@Manny:
    No one was upset by LOLLLLL’s posts.
    LOLLLLL was the person who was upset. She was ranting and raving and swearing at people, and writing posts longer than War and Peace each time. Everyone else here wrote her short, smart, even witty replies. LOLLLLL was the one having the meltdown.
    You seem to be equating posting a reply to someone with being upset. People here were just offering opinions. They weren’t swearing, and ranting and posting for hours like LOLLLLL. That is is how someone behaves when they’re upset.

    @Can’tGetEnough: CGE, great news on your daughter! Be a very proud mom!

    It’s great to have some of the gang on here: Cnoc Mhor, Red October, Lolita, and the cast of thousands. It’s so much fun to be on here when everyone gets along.

    @Cnoc Mhor – Loved your post! Too Funny! As a bored, older woman with no love life with my husband – I was busy inserting my name in each slot – NOT! My husband is a cutie – he looks like Paul Newman in the 60s – those blue eyes slay me every time!

    Ladies, can’t wait to read the rest of the posts from last night.
    Egg nog all around!

    No photos ever emerged since the surfing accident?

    Used to come here for Gerard info and photos but now it’s descended into utter chaos. Not worth the time here anymore.

  • @Manny

    @FYI:
    What do you call Justsayin too and so sad? They seemed unhinged.
    People were upset and wasted time replying to her, while she was laughing her head off. That’s how it sounded to me. I think you need to reread some of these posts.
    .
    She totally made fools out of some people. That’s why I say don’t waste time responding to Trolls whose only fun is to make people feel angry, foolish, and unhinged. They feed on this.
    .
    Please, I don’t want to go on discussing this. It’s a total waste of my time. We have Trolls coming and going everyday here. She is not some special Troll that we should waste time analyzing her or her comments days after the fact.

  • Autumn

    @Do you know?: Now you know – I only post under Autumn. Please don’t bring me into your little word battle. If i get offended, I’ll let anyone on here know it under my tag – Autumn – the only one I use. I don’t have the time to keep changing – I sign to almost everyone as “A”.

    No offense taken here just don’t bring in people you’re not familiar with besides I’m usually out of the country on travel. I can at times get a satellite link and bounce in here for a few minutes to read, but can’t post.

    My saying is “Live and Let Live” – no judgement – whatever floats anyone’s boat as long as it’s legal, moral, ethical, doesn’t children and animals. :) :) :)

    @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!!

    Maybe I should be specific. I will list. Joie, Autumn, Manny(I think you are funny as h*ll), CGE, redO, angelsrock, niknoks…. Is it just fandom? How can you read such poison, want to come back and be so positive at the same time?

  • Joie de Vivre

    @lolita: Darling, you really know how to make a person feel good. Our ANGEL of the THREAD! What a beautiful compliment!! I want, above all, to be a good life partner to him. He brings out the best in me. He makes me feel like the most adored woman in the world. And I adore him…he is my soul-mate and my best friend. NEVER do I take this for granted. You are beautiful, Lolita, through and through. God bless you, love! Sleep tight! XXO

  • Joie de Vivre

    @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

    Lolita…..u too…. It’s obvious to me why some are on here. GFW(obvious) LOL(LLLLLL, shall I keep going with the L’s?), God Bless with her scriptures is pleasant too of course, but you women I listed seem so nice (well Manny you have your moments, but don’t we all), down to earth and too good to be here honestly. So again, just curious.

    @Joie de Vivre: Joie, your kind words are appreciated, thank you. Sleep tight too♥♥

  • Dimples

    @Joie de Vivre:

    I understand. You seem like a very sweet person. It’s difficult to look past the negative on here. The fact that you can says a lot about you. Your hubby is a lucky man. :)

    @Dimples: Our common denominator is our like for Gerry. We have found in our posts that we are from all four corners of the earth and we like to talk to each other. You can learn about different cultures and places because Gerry has traveled the world. He has brought us together and most of the time it is a pleasant place to chat and share info about him and many other subjects. Nice talking to you and have a good night.

  • Autumn

    @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.

    Best – A

  • wait a minute….

    Gerry is a classy guy.
    He just sent the Mavericks Surf Shop a Christmas gift – I guess he became good friends with the owners.

    @Joie de Vivre: HEY my friend! Your words are so special to all of your buds here! We care about you so much! Honey bunny is getting all of our positive energy as are you. Wish I was there to give you some support, make you laugh through the scary parts, and just loan my strength to carry your burden. It’s what friends do!

    All of you ladies are just wonderful. Let’s keep the momentum going and stay positive and strong for each other – the power of one and the many.

    JDV – hang tough – you’re blessed and will win in the end! You can’t lose because you have a huge heart, faith, and a special kindness that’s hard to miss. Hugs! Shoulders! Ears! Heart!

    Thanks! You did A thanks so much. The curiosity has been getting to me. This place can become such a madhouse. Then I feel there is some warmth and sanity when I read the posts from the people I listed above.

    ++++++
    @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.
    +++++++

    I suppose that will always be the case with most celebrities.

  • wait a minute….

    Poor guy, I read he almost drowned.
    He might be in NYC now. Someone just tweeted he is having dinner next to them.
    I hope he’s resilient enough.

  • wait a minute….

    @bystander:
    I don’t think Linda Taylor was ever his woman unless you know something we don’t???

  • Joie de Vivre

    @Autumn: Autumn, do you know that Honey Bunny doesn’t want to tell anyone in our lives about his “situation” until there is something to tell. I am a Gemini…wear my heart on my sleeve. If it wasn’t for you all, I’d be a a mumbling mess by now. Having this outlet is proving to be healthy. See… Butler = Good Mental Health!!! 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!)! The support is humbling. Enjoy your four days. You have earned them indeed, love! Hugs, Friend! XXO

  • Can’tGetEnough

    Ladies! Autumn, Lolita, Joie, Angel, RedO! So nice to come on and read the positive, enlightening and heartwarming posts! 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!!
    Hugs to all of you!!
