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!

    @Hags Central: I’m not sure where posters who put others down are coming from. I’m no young beauty but no hag either, and I have no misguided idea that I will ever really meet Gerry or (laughing hysterically) have a fling with him. I just like to look at him and I enjoy his movies and reading about his exploits. Every now and then, it’s fun to dream a little dream about the person I think is the most handome man on earth. And, I for one, am looking forward to the day he finally settles down with someone and gives the world Butler babies. I’ll follow the Butler family saga just like fans of Brad and Angelina follow that family.

    The comment had nothing to do with her picture. If you read a few of her posts and who she is following and re-tweeting you get a glimpse into the kind of girl she is… a tempting roll in the hay girlie not a take-home-to-meet-mommy type IMO. A perfect hit and run for Butler.

    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.

    OMG how will I live??? Butler won’t nail me??? ROTFLMAO…
    .
    I sleep with the love of my life nightly. I don’t want Butler to sleep with like you. I don’t even care to meet the man in RL. When he was here at Sundance I didn’t bother to drive the 45 minutes to try and see him. I didn’t even bother to go see MGP when it was here for a whole week because I didn’t want to go without my hubby. Kind of shows how high Butler is on my priority list.

    You know nothing. In fact, I bet you can’t figure out who that poor soul in the mirror is staring back at you.

    @Manny: Thanks Manny for responding about Melli. The news showed the building shaking and people diving under their desks for protection. The people of New Zealand have lived after the big quake through thousands, yes thousands of aftershocks and now another big quake. She has such a nice sense of humor and was a pleasure to read her posts.

    Good Morning JJer’s! Looks like the man made it to Scotland! Yeaaa, good for him. It’s always good to know when he’ll be with his family and away from all the other stuff, even for just a bit. He needs it!

    I believe they both work at Glasgow Airport:

    Just seen the pics, he looks shattered bless him, a few days back home with family should sort him out.

  • Quinn

    Glad he’s home. Lolita is right about the lumberjack look! LOL. I never saw him dress like that before. Wonder what possessed him to put on that outfit for traveling. He’s casual a lot, but this is over the top. Maybe he thought the paps wouldn’t recognize him in that getup. Oh well, at least he’s alive and well.
    Merry Christmas JJ’ers. Hope we get more Scotland pics and reports. I’d love to see (I knnow we won’t) his reunion with Margaret.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @niknoks: Nik, have a wonderful holiday and give that puppy a belly rub for me.
    Gerry will be pampered by his Mum, I’m sure, the hugs and kisses he gets from her will make all his boo boo’s go away.
    Blessings to you and yours♥♥

    You’re right Loli, he does look like a lumberjack–and he looks like he just woke up in the second picture! =)

  • niknoks

    @Can’tGetEnough:

    Well he’s just flown overnight from New York to the UK maybe straight to Glasgow, more likely to London with a connecting flight, I think we can let him off for looking a bit knackered. ;-)
    -
    He does look a little lumberjack like, shirt, jeans & what looks like a puffa jacket, nice & comfortable for a long flight, nothing wrong with that. If I’m on a long flight, I’m wearing sweats & uggs all the way. Luckily for me I don’t have paps waiting for me when I get off the plane & people judging what I look like. ;-)
    -
    Wishing everyone on here and their loved ones a very Merry Christmas, have fun and stay safe.

    Thanks, hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas.

    @niknoks: I don’t mind the lumberjack look. He does look comfy. I don’t even mind that he looks like he just woke up. He’s as cute as ever and I’m glad he’s home.

    Merry Christmas Nik!

  • niknoks

    @Can’tGetEnough:

    I totally agree, he looks fine, I’ve never understood the judging of celeb’s clothes in situations like this, yes, when they’re at an event but just after they’ve stepped off a plane or are out shopping or whatever, why should they need to look immaculate?

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @Can’tGetEnough: CGE, thanks for the links, I love his look even when he looks like an unmade bed. Too Cute!!
    CGE, have a wonderful Christmas and thanks for all you do for us techno challenged individuals♥♥

  • Quinn

    In case anyone thought I was being critical of his lumberjack look, I was not. I just never saw him in that look before. That’s all I meant. He sure has dressed down on lots of occasions but differently … remember the camo pants and shirt with stripes! The way he can look ultra casual even goofy on some occasions and then llike a fashion model the same night is part of why I find him fascinating.

  • trying to figure it out

    Merry Christmas to one and all. I hope Santa brings you what is on your wish list.

    The temperature has dropped to something more seasonal, -11, so Santa had better wear his woolly drawers tonight.

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

    Thanks for the link CGE. I think he wore that shirt on The View with a jacket and black jeans. He looks a bit scrubby. But I’d still give him a big hug!!!

    Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas..and remember to keep your family and friends close..Enjoy your Holiday ox

    @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!

    Thanks for the link CGE You’re the bomb! As Lolita says It is appreciated by all us techno challenged. As for that rascal Gerry, hope he has a restful, happy holiday with family and friends. You’re right Lolita, he does look like an unmade bed, but it’s one I wouldn’t change for anything. That’s our boy, shabby chic…..
    Merry Christmas and have a great New Year all you lovely JJers. even the whacky ones and the not so nice ones. May you all find peace in what ever you do.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @God Bless yoou all!: Blessing to you this holiday and all through the new year. It is a joy to read your posts and very inspirational too.
    He is a special treat regardless of what he is wearing. Rascal is a good word to describe him.

  • Can’tGetEnough

    @God Bless yoou all!: Merry Christmas to you too God Bless! Your posts continue to be an inspiration to us daily. Thank you again for that! It’s appreciated.
    God Bless you and Happy Holidays!

  • she

    @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.♥
