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’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 ****. 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****

    @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:

    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.

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

    @LOLLLLLLL:

    Well that’s better then! (not) Guess I got lucky. Had two kids, still tall and slender with a good figure. So it’s not unheard of!

    LOLLLL- so sorry by your own description of what you want you will never have GB. He wants a traditional woman so a divorcee will never work for his Mom and their traditional catholic faith. Sorry, but you said it yourself.

    Pardon me? Says:

    @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.

    @So sad.:
    “Too bad all that work has done nothing for you on the inside.”
    .
    Jealous much?
    .
    @give me a break:
    “Oh, so you’re young and in your child-bearing years, huh? Big Surprise. I never would have guessed. Funny how that’s exactly the kind of woman you say Butler is after. ”
    .
    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.

    Gabriel Says:

    @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.

  17. 142
    So sad. Says:

    @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. .

  18. 143
    LOLLLLLLL Says:

    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.

    @Gabriel: @Gabriel: my karma has been beautiful and I trust my Gabriel, I’ve earned my wings, you are straight up madness. I’m not fearful and I’m protected at all times, Gabriel will take me, his other half when he is ready to depart. 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? Says:

    @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.

  21. 146
    LOLLLLLLL Says:

    @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.

  22. 147
    Do you know? Says:

    @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.

  23. 148
    Pardon me? Says:

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