Gerard Butler: Glasgow for the Holidays

Gerard Butler: Glasgow for the Holidays

Gerard Butler arrives at the airport on Saturday (December 24) in Glasgow, Scotland.

The 42-year-old Scottish stud took a break from filming his latest movie, Of Men and Mavericks, to spend time with friends and family over the holidays.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Gerard Butler

Gerry is on the mend after a scary surfing accident earlier in the month – when a large outside set of waves came through, he was held down under water and hit on the head before finally being plucked out after the waves subsided.

JJ finally caught up! Looking tired, but I’m sure happy to be home in Scotland!

He looks old, wrinkled, grey and like a total slob. This is a heartthrob??

His best years are behind him.

Swannie

# 4

His best years are NOT behind him!

The best is yet to come and he is totally smoking hot. Yummmmm

# 5

Not feeling him. Do not think he is handsome.
Looks older then his age & a conceited personalty all equals
= over rated schnook.

# 6

I forgot to mention sun damaged and schlumpy. Is he smoking again and banging a different woman every night? That kind of behavior really ages a person.

@Dude:
What conceited personality? He only shows what he feels people expect, a profile he’s crafted. He saves his true self for real friends and family. He’s a heart the size of Texas and made of pure 24K with all the shyness of an island boy.

@Dude: You are right, Dude. Gerard Butler is an over-rated schmuck. He can only make so many dud movies before the idiot producers stop offering him work.

Swannie

I don’t care what anyone says I still love him . He’s so Dreamy . Thanks Jared .

Wow haven’t posted in a while. I hope everyone had a great christmas!

holy crap he looks terrible. Dude, get some sleep…and possibly a face-lift.

I love Gerard Butler.I still think he is hot.He is the best looking leading man Hollywood has ever had.You probably don’t like his longer hair.He looks younger and better since he lost weight.He sometimes does not dress good when he is not working,but when he goes out to those parties he has beautiful suits ties,and shirts..He has very expensive suits made just for him.A lot of people when there not working dress like they don’t care.I bet all of you do to.

@anonymous: I sometimes dress this badly when I’m making a quick dash to the grocery store or to fill up the car. I do not dress like this when I’m going on a trip. The people around Butler will be wondering when he had his last bath.
Every year he dresses like more of a slob. Next year be careful when dropping change into a homeless man’s cup, it could be Gerry’s cup of coffee.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 12/27/2011 at 1:47 pm

Really sorry but he’s dressed to blend. To belong. Not to stand out. Nothing wrong (at all) in how he’s dressed! What’s wrong with it? Transparency is what he’s aiming for. Looks like his mates. They’re not overly dressed either. It’s his life, his holiday. His downtime. His eyes can still melt stainless steel if he trains them on it. ;o)
~K
why all the judgment calls on his appearance, it’s his heart the matters… and that’s beautiful

hello did you ever think he is tired from jet lag and I would love to see you after a near death experience. Wishing him only the best

I agree Gerry’s fascinating woman.He dresses to blend in,not to stand out.To me he is a beautiful man.I don’t think he looks old either.I thought that he might have had a nip and tuck.I thought he looked younger.Did you see how handsome he looked on Jay leno’s show,and the View,and Craig Ferguson’s show.I think that he was the handsomest man I ever seen when he was in his thirties,I still think he is better than all of the leading men in hollywood.Just because he wears scruff on his face doesn’t make him dirty.If you think like that you are thinking like the old people think.Times have changed ,move on.with the trend.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 12/27/2011 at 2:38 pm

@anonymous:
Thanks!
-
And another thing is people aren’t privy to any aches and pains he might be recovering from. He might be on meds for anxiety or post traumatic stress syndrome? It was an awful experience to nearly drown! No one knows and I’m not saying he is.
-
But don’t feel he looks bad at all. He looks like him. He hasn’t altered how he dresses and won’t. So some of you should give it up. Control who you can, you cannot control him. He’s perfect as is. He is enough as is.
~K

It is harder to maintain scruff on your face than it is to shave it all off.The razors for scruff is set a certain way and they have special razors for scruff.Scruff takes more upkeep than shaving your face clean or having a beard.A beard if trimmed nice takes upkeep too.

Make Love Not War @ 12/27/2011 at 2:45 pm

Gerry has gotten off from a long flight. I would like to see how you Gerry bashers would look after a long flight. He still looks better than any man in his 40′s.

He is resplendent any way, any time. Hope he’s enjoying his holiday in Scotland.

@Make Love Not War: He doesn’t even look better than a man in his 50′s. Look a that poster someone posted a link to above. Ralph Fiennes is in his 50′s and looks younger and fresher than old Gerard Butler.

Aw, now I think Butler is just exquisite no matter what he’s wearing or what he’s doing! What a lovely way to end a day out in miserable weather….a new thread. And as I said before when we first saw these photos, I love the sleepy and vulnerable look. XXO

Joie de Vivre @ 12/27/2011 at 4:27 pm

@Manny: @niknoks: Thank you both! We had our best Christmas yet! Hope you are both well and happy Should be hearing something soon, but he is feeling better. Congrats, nik, on the new one coming. XXO

something about him reminds me of a used tampon. I don’t know what it is….

@Joie de Vivre: Joie, agree, he just looks tired and he was just through a scary experience.
So glad to hear your honey is feeling better. Take care and enjoy your evening.

@GerrysFascinatingWoman: I just copy and paste the info whenever I see it come up in the news feed of one of the GB fan sites. I’m not on FB and Twitter searching for this stuff. They are. I just relay it here because I know the topic of his whereabouts usually comes up.

I agree. The guy can’t seem to do anything without it being tweeted. I dont get Facebook or Twitter. Does someone’s every move need to be known? Give the guy a break on his attire. He looks tired, but otherwise fine. That flannel actually looks pretty comfy.

Wait took a closer look & that’s not a flannel shirt. Whatever he looks comfortable anyhow. lol

Hi Maggie. Nice to see you and thanks. I’ve been out shopping for my vacation , thinking about it the yellow towels are a great idea ; )…have a great 2012 you too.

He does look a bit tired in the above pics . . . but that’s to be expected after a long flight. He must be all rested now if he’s out partying and taking numbers as usual (eye roll) until all hours.

redOctober @ 12/27/2011 at 8:54 pm

Tonto has mentioned Mother Teresa ( a woman I admire with all my heart)
She’s said:

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa

I think it says it all.

@redOctober: Evening ladies! RedO – this is one of my favorite MT sayings. Thanks for sending me off to sleep with these wonderful words.

Also, CGE thanks for posting the Glasgow pics before JJ – he does look exhausted. Instead of enjoying the fun places in Glasgow (The Corinthian rocks in Glasgow and DiMaggio’s on Ruthven Lane has great food), he should get some much needed rest in the quiet highlands. You can’t burn a candle at both ends!

Hope everyone is well! Ladies – have a fabulous Wednesday! Keeping you all in my best thoughts.

A

What does he do with all the telephone numbers he asks for. Does he use it as a way to get away from people? A lot of the time when he’s out & about we’ve seen him with the phone glued to his ear & people suggested here that it’s a means to keep people from approaching him, a lot of the time the paps. Maybe when he’s trying to finish up a conversation the easiest thing to do so as not to offend is ask for their number. I can’t be seriously planning on making contact with all these people, how would he ever keep track of them all.

Marie.Devereux @ 12/27/2011 at 10:25 pm

@Swansong: Can you please shut the hell up? Good lord.

On to the news above: Gerard Butler may look like this because he just got out of the hospital a week ago! You really think that someone who had a near death experience is really going to give a s h i t about his/or her appearance inside of an airport? The majority of the people here are just hypocrites for taking their anger out on him. You expect him to be walking around in Armani at the airport? He’s an Actor, not royalty. He’s a regular guy. Leave him alone!
On another note, the guy is 42 now. Don’t expect him to look exactly like he did when he was the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera. Understand that people are going to age. Those that are just criticizing him for what he looks like now, take a look in the mirror. You may not have any wrinkles now, but know that you will. Looks will fade, but know that if you have a personality that bites, no one is going to want you for that too. Think about it.

Interesting @ 12/27/2011 at 11:14 pm

It’s hard for me to make it out. What do you think he is wearing around his neck? Jesus on a cross.

Interesting @ 12/27/2011 at 11:23 pm

why the negs people? I only asked a question. I’m fascinated by his jewelry.

wait a minute.... @ 12/27/2011 at 11:52 pm

LOL, Gerry’s outfit he was wearing to Glasgow is discussed. His shoes especially. Apparently, his sneakers are expensive.

wait a minute.... @ 12/27/2011 at 11:57 pm

@Interesting:
I wish I can answer you about his jewelry, but at least we know about his shoes lol.
Also, the jacket he is wearing is the black puffed patent leather jacket we have seen him wear before.

@wait a minute….:

I think it’s pretty silly that he’s being critiqued for what he is wearing. I’m also glad to not be a celeb. It’s easy to insult someone’s looks while hiding behind a computer, but you have to wonder what these people that are doing the insulting see when they look in the mirror.

wait a minute.... @ 12/28/2011 at 12:13 am

@Summer:
I think celebs are always scrutinized about everything, including their outfits. If he were a woman, it would have been much worse.

Anyway, I don’t think he cares what people think about him, especially on the internet. There is something about the internet that just feeds this kind of thing even more than the tabloids use to to do before the Internet.

@wait a minute….:

He’s a man, so he probably wouldn’t care that much. Depending on his ego. I was speaking of any celeb in general. What I find amusing is the ones insulting on gossip sites are probably the most insecure of people and possibly the least attractive.

WOW……just got a hug and kiss from Gerry at the game last night, and he asked for my name and said it was a very beautiful name…..My lord he smells nice ;0)…

@Marion:
umm …. what game last night?
Celtic plays today

NOT at the Celtic VS Ranger ……But he’s going to the match tonight….HOPE Celtic wins…..mayby he’ll said hi again….

@Marion:
What game was he at last night then?
He was out at a restaurant and clubbing last night.

I was at my penpals place and we were playing WII….a thing we do once a year at x-max and Gerry knows my penpals husbond….so he came by for a Qucik hello…..

@Marion:
Oh, Georgia*, you really are the world’s worst liar. When will you ever learn?

Sympathy Sucker @ 12/28/2011 at 3:53 am

@Tonto:
“Why people feel the need to attack someone for having a heart is beyond me.”
.
The issue is not about having a heart you dummy. It’s about informing everyone on an anonymous forum that someone you know had died, all in an effort to gain sympathy and attention from a public forum where nobody even knows you or the deceased. That’s the real issue at hand, and the fact that an idiot like you and others here don’t recognize how pathetic it is, is really chilling. Gerard Butler threads are not the right venue for such things..

@Sympathy Sucker:
“The issue is not about having a heart you dummy. It’s about informing everyone on an anonymous forum that someone you know had died, all in an effort to gain sympathy and attention from a public forum where nobody even knows you or the deceased. That’s the real issue at hand, and the fact that an idiot like you and others here don’t recognize how pathetic it is, is really chilling.”
.
Agreed, the issue is not about having a heart. We all have a heart and we all get totally horrified when we hear of such sad occurrences. However, sharing such information on a public board with strangers doesn’t mean you have a heart at all. I ado agree with you that it merely means you’re fishing for sympathy and for attention from other posters because you don’t have a good support system in your real life away from this website.
.
Please consider the reason they have responded to your argument with such moronic posts claiming she has a heart. As if because she has a heart she has a right to post such stuff here. The reason is because many women judge everything based on emotions rather than common sense or facts. I’m sorry to say that women are not critical thinkers. They get swayed and make decisions based on feelings, not on empirical facts. I never get advice from any female unless it has to do with feminine issues. On everything else, thank God for men. You get clear, straight to the point, concise and concrete answers without the superfluous buIIsh!t that women add while missing the whole point of the issue at hand.

TIRED, SAGGY, OLD & UGLY

He’s one of those men that looks cute sometimes but ugly other times. I wish he would take better care of his skin and stay out of the sun.

@Sarafina:
Is he sticking around? Great! Hope so. He needs the grounding and family and friend love he gets there, not in Hollywood. He’s a man stuck between two entirely different worlds.
~K

Not a good actor, by any measure. Also, he starts to look more and more haggard by day.

Oh, sorry, maybe you didn’t notice (in the text by his photo) he just nearly lost his life? Just a hunch, but it could have aged anyone 5 years. Besides he might be on some meds for anxiety, sleeplessness due to nightmares? It was a harrowing experience, and not one easily forgotten. His pupils are large, but the airport doesn’t look well lit. He could have just woken up. Glad he posed. It was a nice thing to do. He looks like a lug, a regular guy. A regular guy in $800 sneakers!

In case you don’t know, she is a wannabe model. This means he is very much in tune with what he likes, Tall, young, dark, and sexy.

@GFW: $800?! I hope they were a freebie, or he was ripped off!
Otherwise another symptom of what, to me, is increasingly appearing to be a rather self indulgent and empty way of living.

@Jose in L.A. @ 12/28/2011 at 1:25 pm

@Jose in L.A.:
You said it! They are pathetic hags. All his fans are old hags which makes Gerard look even older than he really is. He needs some hot young fans to give him an air of freshness.

These old hags just bring the whole thing down. Some of them have post-college-age kids for goodness sake and they still drool over Gerard. So disgusting, especially the married ones. Menopausal women losing their undies the moment they see him. Yuck.

@FYI:
It’s a joke. Read the rest of her tweets and the replies from her friends. This girl and her friends are just kidding around. She says Gerry gave her rohypnol and that’s how he got her to sleep with him. I highly doubt Gerry gives women the date ra/pe drug.

I’d hate to think he’s really in a pub getting drunk!! He might be going to that game tonight anyway so maybe we’ll get some pics. If he’s anything, he’s probably tired. He was out partying last night.

Taking a stab at him for lack of audience for Machine Gun Preacher? Well that isn’t his fault. Now at the pub, I rather doubt he wants any (audience but his mates). He’s there to reconnect with family and friends.

@GFW:

I like that photo, too and the girl’s face is priceless, she looks so happy.

I don’t believe he is drinking again even if he was in a bar. He was looking forward to watching that game so I don’t believe he would get drunk and miss it. There is a picture of him with three other guys at the admiral and he doesn’t look drunk to me.

Aye the lad is tired and let’s remember he nearly died shall we so that would age anybody, you and me included.

He’s definitely dressed to blend and it’s a good thing as in Scotland, they’re quick to get on the case of any stuck up celebrities (and I don’t think he’s one).

I hope he gets all the rest he needs there as well as having fun with family and friends.

Btw, what’s will all the trolls I noticed here before I got some real interesting comments? I guess that’s the only place they could go for the Holidays!

@Can’tGetEnough: Thanks CGE that is the picture I was talking about.

@redOctober:
Agreed. It’s dinnertime now or suppertime, or whatever they call abroad. What’s his taste buds hungry for tonight? Roast beef? I do love the word wee for small/short though. I use tad a lot.
~K

Tired or not he’ll go out. He’s so grateful to be alive. Guess being at home, even at home, isn’t exciting enough for him. Think he likes to see people, be with them. Look, watch, listen. Being alone gives him too much time to think perhaps? Dunno.
-
Really feel he’s loving life now. And happier too. Enjoying it more after this incident than before it, and he loved it then as well. It’s just a body needs its rest! But he knows that. I worry for his running his engines all the time. Wired like that or not, all parts need to get shut off to recharge.
-
Yes, blended with his people. Humble fits him. Modest more than people realize too. He’s just a man who acts, whose done well, to them.

@GFW:

I wish I know but I’m very far away from Scotland. Whatever he’s eating I hope it’s in good company.

Can'tGetEnough @ 12/28/2011 at 3:50 pm

@redOctober: What kind of food do they serve at a Celtic game? Does anyone know?

redOctober @ 12/28/2011 at 3:57 pm

@Can’tGetEnough:

I have no idea. Probably Nik knows, she’s a football fan.

@Can’tGetEnough:

Depends on what kind of seats you’re in, if you’re in the ‘cheap seats’ (which are the best ones) with what I call the real fans, you can buy, pies, burgers, hot dogs, that kind of food, but people in the stands don’t tend to eat during the game, just drink.
-
If you are in the ‘posh seats’ with the ‘prawn sandwich brigade’ (look up Roy Keane’s reference) you can get anything from sandwiches to a three course meal if you have a box.
-
Just as I was typing this Celtic have just scored. 1-0 to The Bhoys in the ‘Old Firm’ derby.

@Can’tGetEnough:
ooOOoola-la that one’s even better! I think he loves the color gray!
~K

The Noise In The Walls @ 12/28/2011 at 4:36 pm

Niknoks..are the Celtic playing in the Ranger’s Park?

@The Noise In The Walls:

No they are playing at home, at Celtic Park.

Can'tGetEnough @ 12/28/2011 at 5:03 pm

@niknoks: Thanks for the info! Bet he’ll be chowing down on something good then.

@GFW: I agree! He’s looking much more relaxed as well!

@lolita: You’re welcome Lolita!! =)

I dislike this man ho he should have stayed with that maniston. Even he doesn’t want her though

Is it true the Celtic’s won 1-0. He has to be happier than a pig in mud!!
Happy for you and your team Gerry!!

@lolita:

Yep, Celtic won 1-0, the game ended with a bit of an on field scrap, all in all a good game. My OH watched it down the pub, so I dare say he will roll in steaming drunk in the early hours. ;-)

The Noise In The Walls @ 12/28/2011 at 5:26 pm

That wonderful for Celtic!! Sure Gerry is happy…Thx for the info niknoks..good to see u on the boards

@niknoks: That puts them in first place with this win, just ahead of the Rangers. It must have been quite a game. Sounds like your hubby will be having a great time celebrating.

@bystander: It means roaring drunk which is surprising since he no longer drinks alcohol, but the Celtic did beat the Rangers tonight in Glasgow 1-0 – go Celtic! Some of the guys were streaming in the office this afternoon – had to leave so never saw the end of the match.

I’m a Celtic fan – can’t help it! Hope he wasn’t celebrating too much!
Autumn

@lolita: Hey Lolita – totally agree – he looks sober as a preacher – his buds are the drinkers perhaps he’s the designated walker and enjoying their company. Great pictures from everyone tonight.

Can’t believe Twitter – no one has any privacy – now I know why I don’t have an account. Fun though seeing the few places that he and his mates are roving to & from before hitting the match at Celtic Park.

thanks for all the pics CGE! Hope everyone had a great day!

A

@Autumn:

Judging from the tweets from the twitterazzi he watched the match at the Admiral, maybe he couldn’t get tickets, they are like gold dust, the Old Firm derby sells out literally minutes after the dates are announced, doesn’t matter who you are, the Queen couldn’t get tickets to that fixture if she wanted.

@Autumn: A, this is just the lift Gerry needed. Designated walker so cute!!

@niknoks: Nik, I bet the roar from the win was heard across Glasgow.

Joie de Vivre @ 12/28/2011 at 6:26 pm

Happy for Butler and his Bhoys! Sounds like he is having a good ole time in Glasgow. As it should be!! Hope everyone here is well and had a splendid day. I agree with you Autumn, the twitter world is so invasive. But I am guilty as well because I opened all the links. :)) Thanks for the links CGE and redO. And thanks for giving us a feel for the game atmosphere, Nik. Love ♥ and hugs to all! Stay safe out there. It’s rookie week on the roads. XXO

The Noise In The Walls @ 12/28/2011 at 7:14 pm

It’s funny how people talk about the “old hags”..not realising..that “they” in fact, will “get old” too…each day..think about it …”you get older”…then before you know it…. “you’re a “old hag” yourself..LOL!!…Maybe just maybe…with a abit of wisdom..:)

Can’tgetenough

Thank you so much for posting all the photos and articles. You keep us up to date so thank you again.

@niknoks: I wonder if that’s the bar on Waterloo and Blythswood. I think I was in that pub several years back – cool wee place. Very hot Celtic following in there.

One of my guys is a huge fan as well so they were live streaming the match – love technology.

thanks Nik! Cheers!

@Autumn:

Why waste your time on Hags? It is pointless to try to rationalize with an irrational person.

@Hags Central: God help you – you’re also stupid and vain! There’s no chance for you – get out now while you can! Save yourself – please don’t breed and please stay on your meds.

Trust me all of my fellow hags on here with me in the home are waving their canes and praying that you get stuck tomorrow in the midst of lots of elderly people perhaps some wisdom might rub off.

If you think your statement’s have vitality, you’re lacking some iron, honey.

@Truth: Oh I feel like a good fight tonight too bad she’s not even a worthy opponent. I hit the ring tomorrow and this will just give me a little added zip when I pound on the guy I spar with at the gym.

Be good Truth.

The Noise In The Walls @ 12/28/2011 at 8:10 pm

Autumn and Truth…
Truth is right..you can’t argue with someone like that..I think they “love” to get a rise out of people..Unfortunately ..with today’s computers..many cowards “hide” behind them…

I hate to break it to you Hags..I doubt they’ll find the fountain of youth anytime soon..and has for wisdom..I think you lost yours along the way..just remember that..one wrinkle at a time :) …

To the gals here, have fun on here for the next several weeks and I hope there are lots of items about Mr. B when I return stateside. Hoping I can get an uplink just to view. Keep the site happy and sane!

RedO, JDV, Angel, NIK, Tonto, CGE, Truth, Lolita, Maggie, CCat, Manny, Dimples, et al – my apologies for letting my Scots temper flare today with certain folks (my Celtics won & I have a few days before I travel) so I should be better than that – it will serve me well in the gym tomorrow. My patience is wearing thin with folks here. All of you are wonderful people who don’t deserve to be spoken too in a public forum like this – none of us do.

To each of you : Have a very Happy New Year filled with friends, family, and fun! Many Blessings! Talk to you in a few weeks.

Autumn

@Hags Central: Instead of perpetuating this and wasting vital space and time I will just AGREE with you. You are so right! Brilliant, in fact. You have us all figured out – my hats off to you. Applause all around.

Have a wonderful New Year! and I truly hope that you have a lovely rest of the week at your job with your co-workers & pals. Have a great New Year’s Eve at all of those fab parties you probably were invited to – don’t imbibe too much and be really careful so nothing happens to you and yours.

@Autumn: This hags person does not seem to get real life and seems very naive! Stirring some trouble up and best to ignore IMO.

Hags Central @ 12/28/2011 at 8:36 pm

@yuck:
“women today can look 10 to 15 years younger with the treatments available to them today. ”
.
That’s true for today. Taking good care of yourself and your skin, coupled with available treatments can definitely make you look 10-15 years younger. However, medicine and technology are advancing at the speed of light. In 5 years they will be able to grow spare organs for people. They are already doing it now, they just need to perfect it some more. There is so much going on, including connecting your mind to the internet and keeping it alive that way.
.
Don’t lose hope for humanity to advance beyond this point. There are reptiles that live 150-500 years. If science can figure out what keeps their cells from deteriorating, unlike what happens to mammals, maybe it could be transferred to people.

Cnoc Mhor @ 12/28/2011 at 8:40 pm

@Autumn: Have a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year! Safe travels and Take Care:)

@Hags Central: Yes, I agree with you in 5 to 10 years aging will not have to happen. It is amazing what is available now let alone in 5 to 10 years will be incredible!

Hags Central @ 12/28/2011 at 8:47 pm

@yuck:
No, I’m not naive; just well-informed.
.
@yuck:
Yes, it’s going to be exciting to be alive. Just take care of yourself now and when all of these wondrous things are available, you’d be in the best position to take advantage and benefit from them.

redOctober @ 12/28/2011 at 8:50 pm

@Autumn:

Have a safe trip and a happy New Year. (no apoogies needed, I lose my temper very often ; D )

Hags Central @ 12/28/2011 at 8:52 pm

Ta, ta, I got to go. A nice evening out is awaiting.

See you next time when I have a little time to check Gerard’s threads. And if I’m not back before New Years Eve, Happy New Year to everyone, including you Autumn.

@Hags Central: Yes. I do understand your position. I work in the dermatology field and see things first hand. I know the different treatments available to women. Some are so amazing and effective and can take years off. It is also expensive and not everyone can afford to do it.

Can'tGetEnough @ 12/28/2011 at 9:37 pm

@Truth: You’re welcome!

@Joie de Vivre: You’re welcome too Joie! Glad you open all the links. =)

@Autumn: Autumn, you don’t have to apologize for your temper at all! Don’t get too riled up over it though. Some people just aren’t worth it and they are only saying things to upset others. Not worth your time or effort. Yes, you can let it all out in the gym tomorrow. =) Enjoy! If we don’t see you, have a very Happy New Year (but please come back soon!)

@Summer:
you sound so backwards when you trash twitter and FB. Hags is right, most of you old hags don’t underhand how to use technology. LOL, I find it hard to believe you’re in your thirties and you rather use old technology such as writing letters. The post office is old technology, that’s why it’s going out of business. You need to move to the 21st century. Peeps who trash technology will bring down the human race with their ignorance of science. Really, you make me feel so sorry for you. I hope you see the light.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 12/29/2011 at 7:15 am

@Twitter & FB:
You know what? Some just don’t give a crap about when someone changed a lightbulb. It isn’t lack of knowledge it’s just T.M.I. and BORING.
-
Now it’s nice to find a Tweet about Gerry (as this is a gossip site about him) why does anyone wish to over-share like they do on FB and Twitter? It’s really, just too much. And then after it’s all over, these instant relationships with friends (they don’t know and possibly would hate if they did) their is this trail of crap to look at?? Senseless. And this said from someone who embraces technology… but to keep changing it just to change is is just a way to suck money from people. Why (gasp) just after Christmas we have a new iPad3 — shocking!!
~K
who is glad Celtic won! (goalie arms)

@Hags Central, aka FB and Twitter: let me get this straight, because I refuse to use FB and Twitter and post my every move, I’m against progression in technology? You must be a teenager. You’re definitely not very bright. Firstly, shipping/mailing will never go out of business. It will always be a necessity. Secondly, I work with computers everyday, along with painting and writing. What do you do for self improvent? Doesn’t sound like too much. Progression in science and technology are a crucial part of our future. Handwritten letters are a preference and show that you really took the time for someone. Oy why am I explaining myself to you? On Just Jared. Again, you don’t sound very bright and I could care less if you flag my post again. The truth hurts too much for some. *shrugs*

GerrysVeryFascinatingWoman @ 12/29/2011 at 9:25 am

Just kind of feel life, and friendships, should be expressed with more than with 7 words or less. Call me old-fashioned or sentimental, I don’t care. Oh, and I still walk a lot too. (gasp)
~K
who feels Gerry can say more in 7 words than most likes those funny things called letters and has a bunch he treasures like gold because he’s old-fashioned and super sentimental and paper is tangible and holds actions… and to him actions speak louder than words ;o)

@Summer:

Handwritten letters are also a good measurement of a person’s level of literacy as there is no built in grammar and spell checks with a pen and a piece of paper, it’s why a lot of employers still ask for a written letter of application with a CV.
-
It’s pointless arguing with this muppet, as you pointed out, they’re not too smart and judging by their attitude and their superficial view of the world I would also guess teenager, a poorly educated one at that, too stupid to realise that they can change their name as many times as they like but they can’t change their writing style. I mean ‘Twitter & FB’ couldn’t even change the spelling mistake she made when writing as ‘Hags Central’, underhand instead of understand.
-
It’s sad really that they have to use the internet to insult people they don’t know for kicks, probably too insecure to do it in the real world. As tempting as it is we probably shouldn’t enable their behaviour by responding, like all children, they will get bored.

angelsrock @ 12/29/2011 at 10:39 am

This pups attitude is such a pitiful reflection of her generation. She really does think shes all cosmopolitan because she tweets. She has a lot of growing up to do. Little does she know and I hope she gets out of her room at her parents home and experiences real not virtual relationships.

GerrysVeryFascinatingWoman @ 12/29/2011 at 11:23 am

Their is actually a movie coming out, that might NOT come out, about a FB user (a girl) who went to meet (in person) the person (guy) she was so in love with. Guess what? They didn’t mesh. Beyond the written words, they bombed. It is so sad. He was nothing like his on-line personality… but she was.
-
She went around to all her ‘friends’ she could find (chick had money) and walked up to them sayin’ I’m so-and-so from Facbook and they’re like, huh?
-
The trick is to be yourself (here) and on-line.
-
Another thing I don’t like about it… is the friends of friends you don’t know friending you that leaves a ‘paper trail’ that can come back to haunt you if you want a job.
-
Also you can tell a lot about a person by their Tweets. Their is a profiling app out there so BE WARE people. Many will say stuff they wouldn’t normally, again… it can backfire.
-
Also, how to delete? You can’t. Say it and you own it. You can’t even delete your account. You can deactivate it. Humm… wonder why? Big Brother IS watching… and it is collecting stuff on people that if not said couldn’t be used. Emotional blackmail is very popular these days. Sending in old ‘Tweets’? Fun times… not.

@GerrysVeryFascinatingWoman: “Another thing I don’t like about it… is the friends of friends you don’t know friending you that leaves a ‘paper trail’ that can come back to haunt you if you want a job.”

You are 100% correct on this one. Something my daughter, an aspiring teacher, has concerns about. She has deleted ‘questionable’ college photos, comments and changed her name, but still….what’s out there? What friend of a friend has a “not-so-nice” photo with HER name on it? Potential employers DO check FB now. Scary.

Joie de Vivre @ 12/29/2011 at 12:22 pm

There must be some missing posts. Looks like the verbal fireworks were on. The age thing again??? All I can say to the nasty, negative and uncivilized teens/twenties out there who continuously attack the decent ones here……what goes around comes around. You can count on that, sweethearts. So be careful building those big ugly temples of bad karma, because you will have to “live” in them one day.

*

Judging by the photos, Butler continues to look so relaxed and at ease in his native land. He should probably go there more often, if for the sanity factor alone…..and yes, the photo with the kids is lovely. I know lots of you wish he would cut his hair…..but I just love those long curly locks. What a treat it would be to run one’s fingers through that mane…

@Can’tGetEnough: @redOctober: Thanks for keeping us connected to the 21st century with all the links. :))

Sounds like some of the Scrooges here need to put on some music and do a little twirling. Sometimes, we all just need to dance. I am going to do that right now.

-
And electronic forensic evidence and intellectual property issues are a new segment of law. Let’s face it. Put it out there, and it’s out there.
-
What is yours once you post on Facebook who again, will NOT delete your account. So if a potential employee wanted to see it they can (and do) get access through channels to up the FB ladder. And then that would lead to the black hole you plopped yourself in… that can ruin your present and future.
-
People would be clowning around posting pics of themselves drunk, near naked on vacation… all very innocent… if between you and them… and then bam, show up in a YouTube (dare we even go there??). No thank you.
-
I mean even phones (of celebrities) are being hacked. They’re GPS devices too… that trail cannot be denied.
-
I mean seriously, I got an invite to friend someone (a stranger of course) the other day. I’m like who the hell is this person? And why do they want to be my friend? AND I’m not even active on FB! Nuts. No way. No one knows who anyone is really.
-
The worst is emotional blackmail. I know a cyber person who likes to save stuff to hit me with (I said I liked them etc) when I don’t meet their expectations by being real that day… today is all that matters… not what I said or felt yesterday. Creepy when it happens.
~K
asking if anyone ever saw the movie with Clive Owen called Trust… check it out on IMDb… a teenager is stalked by another teen (cough) ager, lured by her isolation and lack of self-esteem, he builds up her confidence, they ‘fall in love’ then she is raped, then emotionally blackmailed, ruined at school by naughty Photoshopped photos… a f’n nightmare

Twitter & FB @ 12/29/2011 at 12:40 pm

@Summer:
Twitter and FB are not ridiculous. I have to agree with Hags that it’s foolish to turn your back on technology. If you don’t utilize today’s technology, you will be left in the dust tomorrow and it will be impossible for you to catch up. FB and Twitter could be very useful tools. lol, they aren’t necessarily used just for small talk like to hear what someone is cooking for dinner. I’m no youngster, but I’m far from being old either and I insist on using social media. Most businesses have FB and twitter nowadays to stay in touch with their customers. We use it in our business, which is responsible for its growth by 500%. Many celebrities and personalities use FB and Twitter to keep in touch with their fans. Revolutions have started because of Twitter and FB – the “Arab Spring” and the “Occupy” movements, just to name a few. Not to mention, Obama winning the WH in 2008 partly because he understood how to use FB and twitter. Those that have embraced this powerful technology learned to harness its power. I find people who speak against twitter and FB don’t understand what it could do for them. Everyhting has a negative side, just stay away form that aspect of it without trashing it.

Twitter & FB @ 12/29/2011 at 12:49 pm

@niknoks:
You should be one to talk, don’t you have twitter in which you tweet like a maniac? hypocrite!!!

GerrysVeryFascinatingWoman @ 12/29/2011 at 12:55 pm

Personally, (for me) it’s simply too time consuming. I know businesses and non-profits are on it too…. it’s adapt or get left behind.
-
I’m not totally opposed to it, and feel it does have its swarming abilities that can be useful. But the centipede effect does not interest me. And, again, I don’t need to be there all the time. People, I know, know how to get in touch with me… where I’ll be… and it won’t be constantly on FB or Twitter. Choice more than anything.
-
A movie came out this year called Page One: Inside the New York Times where, just so you know, the ‘grown ups’ get it. On line is it, for the most part. But still people need tangible things in their lives, books, newspapers, letters… even (gasp) people.
~K
who thinks Gerry has a Kindle but if he really likes a book will buy a (gasp) hard copy for his collection… ;o)

@Twitter & FB:

This is the last time I will respond to you. This entire ‘argument” got started because people on here were being insulted by imbeciles stating that some are too old to know how to use FB and Twitter. My father who is 65 knows how to use both. That is not the point. The point is that it is OK to not WANT to be on either. Of course it is good for marketing. That is moot. We are talking about having a personal profile/account and people posting their every move and thought. THAT is what is ridiculous about it.

And GFW: Very true. There are thousands of people that have had their FB accounts hacked into and also every bit of information you enter is saved. Always.

@redOctober: Let me give you a collection of their brilliant idea:
A girl: Doesn’t every country has its own sun?
A boy: If we go to the other side of “Sea of Galilee” we will find Australia.
A girl: does teachers really have eyes in the back?

A BOY ask to go to the toilet and I refused he said that he got his period today and if I will not let him go out all the blood will spill on the floor!!!

@Twitter & FB:

Since I haven’t said anything about Facebook or Twitter, how exactly does having a Twitter account make me a hypocrite?

You can also be very aware of the social media technology including how it works and how to use it without actually using it or rather over-using it. There are most certainly benefits for companies to use social media and for individuals as well . . . but just because it’s available 24/7 doesn’t mean people need to Tweet and FB their every move or thought. Sure, I’m as guilty as the next person when it comes to looking at these fan pics, etc. but I also ask myself why people post celeb pics and comments about them. To brag? Or just to have something new and different to say? If I had a pic with GB I can assure you it would not be posted to Twitter or FB . . . it would be enlarged and turned into wallpaper for my bedroom – lol!

.
I hate to remind you about common sense. There are certain things you should never post online no matter how secure it is, let alone on FB, which has many issues with security. Twitter is a lot better in the security department so you can make your tweets private and it works unlike FB. You should have warned her not to post anything too personal, if you’re a good parent. This includes comments as well as pictures. Also, you can use a nick names on both FB and Twitter that you use only for those accounts. A potential employer would have to know those before they can search for your information. Again, if you know how to use these effectively they can be powerful tools. You can also stay in touch with all of your college friends while not compromising too much of your privacy, simply by using these procedures. Still don’t understand why some people make such a big deal about using FB and Twitter.

Hey, I saw The Social Network and what the guy did to the twins. It started there. He used them, blackmailed them, lied to them, stole their idea. Think that’ll change? No. So why put what you think out there for others to steal? Do they, you bet.

Not against it, just don’t judge me for not bothering. It’s too exhausting reading through all the twiddle. I’m like, eh? What? Who cares if someone bought 5 rolls of TP for $2! Or got shi//t-faced last night and needs to POST it? Seriously cap it. It’s stupid TMI stuff that’s annoying, and a turn off (for me).

“Not against it, just don’t judge me for not bothering.”
.
I don’t argue that there is so much to dislike about it, and that it could also be dangerous. But again, I think many people just don’t understand it, or know how to use it effectively so they trash it. Don’t trash it. just say it’s not for you and move on.

Twitter & FB @ 12/29/2011 at 1:45 pm

@Summer:
“We are talking about having a personal profile/account and people posting their every move and thought. ”
.
No, we’re not. No one is talking about crazy people, except you. You were trashing these services because you felt Hags comments hit too close to home for you. After all, how can Hags on JJ think that just because I don’t use FB or twitter I am old or not technologically inclined? You were outraged. That’s when you took it upon yourself to trash FB and twitter. Therefore, I mentioned to you that these services don’t deserve to be trashed outright, and that they could be harnessed for doing good.

BTW, try not to lash out at every post that hits too close to home for you. It makes you sound insecure.

Can'tGetEnough @ 12/29/2011 at 1:47 pm

@Twitter & FB:
” You should have warned her not to post anything too personal, if you’re a good parent.”

I wouldn’t even go there with me since you have NO idea what kind of parent I am. I’ve told both of my children plenty of times to not post “personal” stuff and they haven’t. By “questionable photos” I mean pictures of her holding a red plastic cup surrounded by friends. Doesn’t indicate that she is a criminal by any means, but since she is going to be teaching, she didn’t want anyone getting the wrong idea. They also can’t locate her by her real name, so even if there are photos of her tagged, they don’t contain her real name. An employer would REALLY have to SEARCH and again, they wouldn’t find any pics of her participating in any criminal activity. As far as comments go, she deleted anything with profanity. Again, not a crime and highly unlikely that she would be deprived a job because of it. She’s just maturing, growing up and getting away from that high school nonsense and is taking her future much more seriously. I’m proud of her. I’m ‘friends’ with both of them on FB and I follow them on Twitter, even though I don’t tweet (which they both don’t mind) and I have their passwords to the accounts. My children who are highly educated and very smart would not be stupid enough to commit a crime, harm someone or bully someone and post pictures of that or comment on that on FB or Twitter. That is REALLY the nasty stuff that can and WILL come back to bite you in the future. THAT is a lack of common sense!

Twitter & FB @ 12/29/2011 at 1:49 pm

@niknoks:
“Since I haven’t said anything about Facebook or Twitter, how exactly does having a Twitter account make me a hypocrite?”
.
Your hypocrisy is oozing. You, yourself use these services, yet you tell crazy unsecured-in-herself summer that writing letters is good. Writing thank you notes might be good sending them in the post office, writing a love letter to someone you love using pen and paper might be romantic, but all else should be emailed. From her post she sounds like a reclose. She uses JJ to keep in touch with the world outside. Poor thing. Don’t encourage her ignorance.

Why would I personally be insulted by that? I’m not old/a hag. Sorry, not insecure either. It is possible to be nice and get tired of people getting thrashed on here by people like you for no reason at all. I can have an opinion about FB and Twitter all I want.

HAHA, oh my. Got a great job, school, friends, etc and travel the world. And I’m super cute to boot! No recluse here. You are really running out of insults. Get a life.

P.S. You might want to invest in spell check.

@Twitter & FB:

I think you need to look up the word hypocrite, as nowhere have I said there is anything wrong with Twitter or Facebook, so how am I a hypocrite for using them?
-
There is also nothing wrong with writing letters, I don’t see anything wrong with doing both. People can read for themselves what I have written here in black and white, so lying about what I have said is a fruitless endeavour and it just further highlights your lack of intelligence.

GerrysVeryFascinatingWoman @ 12/29/2011 at 1:59 pm

@Twitter & FB:
I’m not trashing it, I’m trashing the “need to know” stuff that I do NOT need to know. It’s exhausting reading the fluff and nonsense. See it here with the Tweets about Gerry. I’m like where’s the bit… OH there it is 5 tweets down telling me they burped. ha-ha.

That is not worthy… it’s personal stuff (that in many cases goes obsolete within hours same like some of the ‘friends”. When (I have) gone there looking for something and find short sentences of crap and nonsense. It’s a turn off seeing some of the stuff/fluff that is not really important. Don’t need someone bought 5 rolls of TP for $2. It’s just to convoluted… and sorry just plain boring.
~K
who’ll stick to emails… and I’ve some very cool email friends… and it’s just between me and them…. who likes that more than sharing it with entire world…. seriously some of the tweets here, these people who’ve met Gerry… will they be left alone? Hummm

No, I didn’t mean you personally, but in general. Many parents don’t participate in their children’s lives and later wonder why bad things happened to them.

Anyway, you sound very level-headed and on top of things with your children, and that’s very nice. My parents did the same with me which is why i can appreciate it in someone else. Your daughter is taking precautions and that’s very wise. Good luck to her.

Can'tGetEnough @ 12/29/2011 at 2:12 pm

@Twitter & FB: I really have stayed on top of things with the FB and Twitter thing and just in general when they started using a computer. Even if they wanted to enter some sort of online contest, they wouldn’t give their name and address until I checked it out. They knew better and they still do–and I’ve always warned them about the bullying thing because to me, THAT is huge. Be careful what you say to people and how you say it because things like that can literally come back and ruin your life.
I didn’t mean to get defensive, but I have to take credit for the good place they are both in now. Sure they make mistakes, we all did when we were in our teens and early 20′s. Trust me, I watch them like a hawk and they know it. I’m glad my daughter made the decision to clean up her FB and be mature about it. I’ve asked her plenty of times if there are any photos out there that could be damaging and other then the ‘college drinking’, there are none–and we’re going to keep it that way.
I have to agree that there are a lot of stupid kids out there that post stuff on FB, even VIDEOS of them committing crimes, or beating other people up. Like they are proud of it. That is just so stupid and they deserve whatever they have coming to them when they get caught.

GerrysVeryFascinatingWoman @ 12/29/2011 at 2:12 pm

LOL… while I’m at it…
A suburban family is torn apart when fourteen-year-old Annie (Liana Liberato) meets her first boyfriend online. After months of communicating via online chat and phone, Annie discovers her friend is not who he originally claimed to be. Shocked into disbelief, her parents (Clive Owen and Catherine Keener) are shattered by their daughter’s actions and struggle to support her as she comes to terms with what has happened to her once innocent life.

@GerrysVeryFascinatingWoman: @Can’tGetEnough:
-
It’s not too bad when you’re there, it would have been even more crowded in the cheap seats and judging by the suits around him he isn’t in those and in hindsight looking at some of those fan photos, they look like they may have been taken in an executive suite before or after the game.
-
On a practical sense it being that crowded does keep you warm and it makes for a brilliant atmosphere. You can’t beat jumping up and down, hugging and in some cases kissing complete strangers in celebration when your team scores. Best feeling in the world.

@dmp:

That is too funny. I met a movie actor that I have adored since I was a teen. It’s so exciting, but we all know how I feel about FB and all that, so only sent the pic to my closest friends and family. My best friends however did post the pic of us on their FB pages. lol

@Joie de Vivre: You are such a sweetheart Joie, thank you for the nice compliment! I appreciate that very much! =)

@Summer: Summer, I must admit that I love FB but I do keep it private including my photos. Last year, I had the honor and privilege of spending an entire week with a major Grammy award winning music star traveling with them from the east coast to the west coast and I documented almost every single moment on FB including hundreds of photos. My family and friends loved it, traveling with me every day through FB on my journey. It was fabulous and one of the most exciting and best weeks of my life. I wonder if any of my friends passed around the photos, LOL I don’t know if they did, but it’s one of the reasons I love FB so much. It gave me a great way to share a fantastic time in my life with everyone I know and they were genuinely happy and excited for me. Wish I could share it with some people here. Maybe someday. =)

@Can’tGetEnough:

I keep my FB account set to the highest privacy settings and only family and close friends have access to it. Whereas my Twitter account is wide open but I’m very selective about what I post on it, nothing too personal.

@Can’tGetEnough:

I totally understand. It’s simply not my cup of tea. I have had friends that have had terrible things happen (like hacking and so forth) on there. The over sharing that takes place is just too much for me too. It’s just not for me. I’m sure most on here don’t want us to get back on that topic. lol I’m also hoping that the insults to others will die down a little now too. I might not have gone about it the best way, but that was my goal, to get that to stop. Your week with a Grammy winner sounds like it was amazing! How fun!

Joie de Vivre @ 12/29/2011 at 4:02 pm

@niknoks: I have chills! One of those moments of pure awe! Thanks for sharing that!

Cnoc Mhor @ 12/29/2011 at 4:07 pm

@niknoks: Do you worry about it though?…It seems like facebook has issues with their privacy settings every other month or so…just wondering if you are concerned if during their lapses on settings etc. that someone could gain access to your account/photos etc.? also if you have the highest settings on etc., can someone with that access still copy, paste and post your stuff on their pages or elsewhere unbeknownst to you?? I think facebbook can be a great thing for keeping in touch with people, sharing things etc. but …facebook has always freaked me out a bit with their privacy issues…

Ladies, good afternoon! Beautiful pics of Mr. B. I love his curly hair. Have really enjoyed reading everyone’s posts today – CGE, GVFW, NIK, JDV, Angel, Summer, DMP, SHE – thanks for the great pics, TwitFeeds. He looks less stressed and happy. Hope he stays in Scotland through Hogmanay (New Year’s). I would have loved being there to watch that match in person.

Gym was great this morning – sparred with Tommy, my 28 boxing trainer, so much stress I knocked him down – twice!

Thanks for all your wells wishes on travel – I leave Monday night.

I have to say I have so enjoyed everyone’s comments about GB today – GVFW you have made me laugh today and nod in agreement with your statements – you make some excellent, valid points especially about social media. I don’t want to know when my pals get up, get coffee, hiccup, or have a brain freeze. Due to my job, I can’t be on FB, Twitter or LinkedIn – I don’t think I’m missing much! I also loved your 7 words – I usually just use 2 :).

Summer, bless your heart – why is it the “SEASONS” get hammered yet we hammer back. JDV and Angel – can we schedule Coriolanus in WDC when it rolls out? CGE you rock with the posts!

ALL – have a great night and I may revisit later! Damn that is a gorgeous man! Just walking around Glasgow and Edinburgh this past May, Scottish men, I must say, can be darn gorgeous! It’s also that brogue – yummy!

@GerrysVeryFascinatingWoman:

I only watched that movie once, but I could barely breathe from crying so much that I don’t think I can ever watch it again. I felt like I had a weight on my chest. But I agree, I kept thinking, especially in the beginning, “Is her character super whiny and difficult or is just me?”.

@Cnoc Mhor:

I’ve never had any issues with FB and the only people I know that have, either didn’t have their privacy settings set up correctly or they left their account logged on, on a public computer. I’m not saying there isn’t any issues with FB but I haven’t had any yet. Plus, I don’t have anything too incriminating on there. ;-)

I’ve never had any privacy issues with FB, but I do check them every so often especially when they make changes. There is another change coming up when they will initiate the “time line” and take away your “wall” as it looks now. Some people have it already and I heard that you may have to ‘redo’ your privacy settings when that change occurs.

But you’re right, she’s not a flattering female in this role. I couldn’t identify with her (at all) but for her not wanting to get on with her life and watching Bette Davis… which is where she get IT.

No matter what your struggle has been, victory is possible today. Sadly, most of us don’t think that’s true. The problem is we tend to measure long term success while downplaying the absolute victory found in small successes.

I am looking toward to meeting up withyou and autumn to see Coriolanus on or around Jan 20.

I luv him xox

The last time I saw someone look like this in a photo, they were holding up that day’s newspaper as proof of life.

Gerry the best is yet to come. You have made so many friends and so many of us support your charities and wish you Good Luck in the New Year. Coriolanus is magnificent at least what has been seen so far A top Movie.. More of this calibre please.

Wishing you all the best.

@niknoks: I love the atmosphere before football games. I know that celtic has one of the strongest sport’s clubs in the world. Sometimes I watch celtic’s games because Biram Kayal plays there and some years ago Eyal Berkovich played there. The Celtic fans are totaly nuts about their team.

I’m kind of hopin’ he sticks around home-plate for New Year’s. Do something different like THAT! I feel he’s having a great time this year. It’s so different, and so is he, than last year. God Bless him.
~K

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:

If he’s still in the UK now, I can’t really see him going anywhere too exotic, as he has to be in London by 4th Jan at the latest to film the Graham Norton show. Maybe he is sticking around Scotland for Hogmanay or coming to London and hitting the clubs with friends??

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 12/30/2011 at 10:54 am

@niknoks:
I hope so. It’s so different than last year where it’s all warm and glitzy. Feel, from someplace deep, he needs this time there. To be away from the world of celebrity and pampering. Not that he isn’t there to some degree, but, well, you know what I mean! Feel he has a new fondness for all things now after his accident. Who wouldn’t? And the 4th isn’t that far away is it? I’m with you… hope he plays tourist in Scotland or tour guide, and heads to London for the big bash or simply stay home for once? Could he? Could he defy it all? Or would he catch Night Fever?

I think I read somewhere that his friend, Ronnie was opening a club on New Year’s Eve in Vegas, but that would be some trip, from the UK to Vegas and then back. Haven’t heard or seen anything else about the Barbados party rumor either.

I agree, I think it would be nice for him to be home for the New Year!

angelsrock @ 12/30/2011 at 10:57 am

@niknoks:

There was a tweet saying Gerry was invited to a party in Barbados this weekend. You know it will be difficult for him to decline that invite.

@GerrysFascinatingWoman: @Can’tGetEnough:

I think it would almost be a shame to fly all the way out to LV or Barbados for such a short time. The difference between the pics of him at Glasgow airport and then the Celtic game were staggering, he looked so much better in the space of just a few days.
-
I feel going on a 20 hour round trip to LV or Barbados (albeit a slightly shorter flying time) for a blow out party, then adding to that the jet lag would set him back again, but GB does like to party with his friends. We’ll have to see if his need for a bit of R & R wins out over being the social butterfly he likes to be.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 12/30/2011 at 11:35 am

Why? He’s been there, done that. Maybe, just maybe, he’s enjoying being away from the plastic people of the plastic society called his circle of influence? Maybe real people without agendas are easing their way up in importance in his life? ;o)

It is kind of scary. But he can stay way below radar when he wants to. He got from CA to NY to Scotland without one airport photo. ;o)

I totally agree with you, and hope he stays put. But we all know his track record. Can he/will he ignore the invite and stay home?

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 12/30/2011 at 12:05 pm

@angelsrock:
Maybe he’s finished keeping track or running it?
-
It’s totally up to him. But he’s learning the power of the positive no. His aches from the accident might be a valid excuse. Some well needed bonding time with his parents. Could real friends deny him that? He can party as much as he wants anytime as he’s between filming.
-
Feel the lure of the sun, right now since he’s been working in it, might have faded? But it’s anyone’s guess. Think his mom is enjoying her son close for a smell. Might this have broken a record? Might where she live, and being with those who really love him without strings or conditions mean more now? Could be. Then again he could jet-set anywhere. Might the weather be nice and chilly but his spirits warm?

You’re such a fu/ck!ng idiot. You have been following him for many years and you don’t know he turns down many invitations??? Another brain-dead poster. How many of you are there?

FYI, he just turned down Ronnie Modra’s birthday party 2 weeks ago and he turned down going to Monaco’s Royal Wedding despite being invited by Prince Albert

Sometimes, things don’t work out with his scheduled. He’s not an idiot that goes out of his way to attend every party he’s invited to when it totally doesn’t make any sense to be there. Get some wisdom will ya?

m@niknoks: I’m going to the graham Norton filming on 5th, there isn’t one on 4th. As its the coriolanus premiere the same night at about the same time, its not clear when gb will film his bit, but potentially he has an extra day to fly or party.

The thing is for me, whether I agree with them or not, their point loses all meaning when they resort to childish name-calling, even more so when there is zero provocation.

Someone who goes straight to petty name-calling is doing it for one reason and one reason only, attention. Given the fact we were laughing and joking and making a point that the vibe had been great round here for the last page or so, it’s kind of ‘convenient’ timing for a abusive post. It’s more than a little childish. Shame really when everyone was getting on. :-(

Oh right, I was just thought it would be Wednesday because that’s when JR used to film most of his Friday night shows.

“this person has a point”
.
Thank you! You are very perceptive and insightful in regard to him.
.
“I’m sure he’s invited to lot of things being famous and all. ”
.
Yes, he’s invited to many things that he can’t possibly partake in all of them. How could he? It’s physically impossible. I noticed, he picks and chooses a lot more than we give him credit, and he often compromises. He is not some idiotic senseless party animal that can’t stay away from a party to save his life. Usually, his attendance is either scheduled many months in advance like his official appearances are, or he has to be mostly free at the time and in the vicinity of an event, which he might swing by to last minute. One example is Monaco 2 years ago after filming Coriolanus. He just finished working on a film, he was free, and in Europe already so he decided to swing by last minute and attended the film festival, F1, Naomi Campbell’s birthday party, and not to mention, hooking up with LC while he was there. 4 for the price of 1. Talk about getting the most bang for your money.
.
Since he has to be in the UK next week, I agree with most of you that it’s not going to be Barbados for New Years. If it does I’ll be very surprised. I think he won’t be leaving Europe for New Years, and possibly just stays put in the UK. But anywhere in Europe is just a couple of hours flight with almost no time change, give or take an hour, so that might be his compromise this year.

Afternoon JJers! So nice to read the posts from 251 onward – had to skip a few – nice to see the lovely conversation occurring amongst everyone.

IMO he should stay in Scotland – he seems more relaxed, in need of rest, and a calm place. He looked wonderful in the Celtic photos. Barbados & LV are fun places, but too much stress getting there and dealing with people. If he’s smart (and we know he is) perhaps he’ll realize that he needs some time to unwind and breathe some nice Highland air.

Nice to see everyone here today.

JDV, Hope HB is feeling better and you as well. Stress over our loved ones health takes its toll – take care of yourself.

Oh heck – I must be honest I kind of like them all except TBH – no chemistry.

I’m Just a curious fan I’m just wondering does Gerry get bored or sick of all the partying, attending every invite to an event, picking random ppls number etc because that’s all he’s being doing for the past 10 years!

I’m not aware of how much truth there is on his flings/hookups so don’t want to speculate but if it is I just hope he’s careful of all the stds, knocking someone up as condoms aren’t always safe plus men who think they’re always ok to have lots of conquests can affect their fertilty too my sis is a doc always tells me of cases!

I hope if he does settle he treats her well and takes it seriously as after a couple of years he won’t get lead roles and the holllywood glamour and wannabe girls he hooks up with will fade! Wish him the best and hope makes some good choices in the future

Heard Chris Rock on a comedy station in my car today and I thought about GB. He said men should settle down because they don’t want to be the old guy at the club. You know “that guy”. lol

Ok off to a great weekend, starting with a UFC fight watch party tonight. Have a great New Years everyone. And to the meanies….. try to treat people the way you would want to be treated.

Can'tGetEnough @ 12/30/2011 at 6:34 pm

@Autumn: Hi Autumn! Gotta agree with you about GFW. I’ve been following her along for many months. I don’t always agree with some of the things she says or how she may say them, but I always read her posts–from beginning to end. At first, I didn’t quite get her, but if you stay with her, you start to understand her style and what she’s really trying to say. Of course, there were a few episodes of GFW anger, maybe about 2 weeks ago, with stuff and name calling that, to me, seemed out of sorts for her. I chalked it up to either a bad week or too many trolls pushing her in the wrong direction. I’ll just keep reading her posts and will continue to find her “fascinating” just like I always have. Not everyone has to agree with that, of course, but it’s my choice.

Enjoyable posts today, with a few exceptions, but there always are. So far, it seems like GB is sticking around in Scotland. Well that really is good news. Not that it’s impossible, but it would’ve been crazy for him to jet around all over the place for just a few days. I know he sometimes enjoys that crazy lifestyle, but I’m thinking he knows what he needs right now and he’s getting it.

@Can’tGetEnough: Well that’s great – he’s staying in town with his family. Comrie is a beautiful little village – the villagers are very protective of his mum and stepdad – when I was there in May (we rented a house on the River Earn) and played golf at the club – folks spoke of them fondly and respectfully. They are pretty down-to-earth folks – Scots don’t let you get to many airs – we’ll call you uppity in a heartbeat! :)

So happy for him – I’m sure he’ll stick around for the Flambeaux procession then back to Glasgow for some fun with mates – one never knows. Thanks for the update.

Have a wonderful Friday evening ALL – off to cook dinner with my hubby and popping the cork on a nice Cab for the evening! Best!

I should have known you would be the type to stalk his mum. Many old-hag fans of his,. known as phannies, make the “pilgrimage” to his hometown. They don’t feel like good fans, or they have done him justice, without going to Scotland at least once, especially to Comrie. You’re probably one of those ladies that tells her hubby you like Scotland for it’s beauty and history, but wouldn’t tell him the truth of how you LUST after Butler and want to know and feel everything about him.

Well, folks, I really couldn’t read all 13 pages of more arguing about Butler’s appearance, quotes from twitter on where he is clubbing, eating and drinking coffee, and posters attacking each other. There are always interesting posts here–Autumn, I was intrigued by your comments on Scotland–Red O, your comments are always interesting…Niknoks too…and others…but so much is wearying and too time consuming so I don’t come to JJ much any more and skip a lot when I do just because it gets repetitive and argumentive.

So GB looks older than he did when he was younger…so what? That’s true of all of us. Even Botox and plastic surgery can do only so much and for so long. A plastic surgeon I interviewed for a story once said, “If you are 50, don’t think a facelift will make you look 30 again. It will just make you look a better 50!” An attractive person is an attractive person and will remain so if he/she doesn’t let him/herself go as too many of us human beings do. Movie stars are under pressure to look good as long as they can. I think Jane Fonda looks great for 74, better than women 20 and even 30 years younger, but she exercised, and admits help from surgery. So what?

Justin Bieber doesn’t do a thing for me (it would be obscene on my part if he did) but teen-age girls seem to fall apart over him. To dismiss an actor because he is aging is to me denying life.

Well, to change the subject, tonight I saw two Scottish movies,
“Rocket Post” and “One Last Chance,” the first set in the Hebrides, the second in the highlands. I love seeing films that show me life in another place, another country, another culture.

They played at a funny little theater here called The Movie Museum, owned and run by a man from one of the “old wealth” families here, who had his own video production company for years, loves movies and runs this theater as a hobby. It has 19 seats, all recliners, and it’s quite funny to see people lying down watching a movie. He has widescreen too! It;s so intimate you end up chatting with people about the film. They charge $5 admission and run many foreign films, old classics and some pretty up to date ones. They are running “Moneyball” with Brad Pitt next month, and that is only a few months old. They also have a schedule of British, French, Swiss, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese and American movies next month.
The owner promised me that he will show “Machine Gun Preacher” if nobody else does here and the two major theater companies haven’t shown it, which annoys me no end. Even if it’s a money loser, it seems like a film that should be seen. Surely they could run it for a week while lapping up the profits from the sh@t that runs and makes millions.

Hilarious! Autumn tells Summer to email if need bail money. Oh…those wonderful seasons, you got to love them. Dumb and dumber those two.

@Can’tGetEnough: Thanks, CGE! You rock! Have a wonderful NYE. Big plans?

@GerrysFascinatingWoman: That hair, that man, that hair….. :))). By the way, WDC was gorgeous the other night!

@lolita: Same to you, Angel of our Thread. ♥ Are you getting snow?

@Autumn: Autumn, you are very special to me and I know many others here. Thank you, love! Have an amazing NYE with your beloved. HB and I have reservations with friends for sushi and then one never knows where a cab will take us! Sushi always makes my HB happy. :)

Everyone, take care and be safe tonight! So excited for the coming year and all the good portions that are in store for our Butler!! Be good and kind! Hugs! XXO

Happy New Year JJ’ers. I hope all have safe and happy experiences tonight….that goes for the mean girls as well as the nice posters. I don’t wish bad things for anyone. I’m sure those kinds of thoughts would come back to bite me.
Wouldn’t it be fun if we find a photo or two of Gerry out with friends, either in Glasgow or Comrie. Nothing intrusive, just sometthing he doesn’t mind posing for with a few respectful fans and friends like Tony. I watched Mists of Avalon on DVD last night and saw that Tony had a small role in it. Mists is one of my all-time favorite films even tho it was a made-for-TV event. I didn’t recognize Tony first time around. The only thing that would have made Mists better is if Gerry had been in it.. Of course, I feel that way about most movies!!
Looking forward to reading you all next year.

@Joie de Vivre: Happy New Year Joie, hope you and hubby are well. We have had a green winter so far. Little bit of snow melted within hours. We have lake effect snow coming Monday and Tuesday of next week. I can’t remember the lack of snow through December. But this is WNY and it can change to moutains of snow in a second. Have a great New Year celebration♥♥

Manny, Happy New Year, just want to tell you I got zumba for Christmas. I thought I was a good dancer, sorry to say I can step on my own feet. Have a great evening♥

Happy New Year everyone!

@LOL:

Yes he would be. Like I said, GB would be very interested, but I’m not. That’s not why I come here. Haha, it’s too funny that you are picking on us seasons. We must threaten you in some way. Just like my post did, thats why you flagged it. Too Sad.

@Autumn: Thanks I might need it! I kid. Nothing too wild planned. But glad to be here. It will be a blast. Loved your post about Scotland btw. Have a wonderful NYE! And don’t listen to LOL, Aka FB & Twitter, Aka Hags Central. It really needs to find better things to do.

… sorry for “prosparity”, a typo of the gif maker, I guess. Prosperity for all of us would be nice ; )

May the New Year bring . . .

Happiness deep down within.
Serenity with each sunrise.
Success in each facet of your life.
Family beside you.
Close and caring friends.
Health, inside you.
Love that never ends.
Special memories of all the yesterdays.
A bright today with much to be thankful for.
A path that leads to beautiful tomorrows.
Dreams that come true.
Appreciation of all the wonderful things about you.

Wishing happiness and joy . . . a peaceful and fulfilling 2012!

@curious cat: CCat always love your words of wisdom! Hope you have a wonderful and warm New Year’s Eve!

One of my BFs is a plastic surgeon – she hates to work on women who appear perfectly beautiful albeit for a few wrinkles, but they sadly want an overhaul. Her most rewarding work is with Docs w/o Borders – some of the miracles she’s performed is simply amazing. Total agreement if it’s something you feel you need to be a better you – personally I love my laugh lines – they were well earned.

Again have a great evening! Here’s to 2012!

@GerrysFascinatingWoman: Happy New Year GFW! Have a lovely evening and I guess I need to view the pic you and CGE are discussing – sounds lovely!

Stay happy and enjoy your weekend! Totally agree with your assessment !

@Joie de Vivre: As are you to me, my dear friend! Can’t wait to see what 2012 brings us – hopefully, more wonderful pictures of a curly-headed, green-eyed Scot with mischief in his eye.

Enjoy the Sushi – ever tried SEI in WDC – great food! Hugs to you and HB and here’s to all of your wishes coming true in 2012. Travel safe – not too much sake! (okay way too much)!

We are celebrating by cooking dinner with about 10 other couples, lots of wine, laughs, and watching Midnight in Paris. Should be a lovely uproar!

To everyone on JJ – here’s to you wonderful, happy, thoughtful, fun, kind women who visit, support, enrich, motivate, challenge, and intrigue one another on a daily/hourly basis. It’s been so much fun sharing posts and glimpses into your lives – reading your perspectives on life & GB. This is my guilty pleasure and a bit of stress relief.

Thanks to each of you for opening your hearts, minds, and lives to your cyber friends.

Much Love, Many Blessings in 2012! Raising my glass of Tattinger at 12M to each of you and yours – Cheers! My new mantra: Love Many, Hurt None and Trust Few

Now you’re a medical professional. *snort* I guess at Black Arts University you can bestow any degree on yourself huh????? Having your heart stop is not the only sign of “death.” Maybe you shouldn’t post medical DX and terminology and try to disguise your paranormal beliefs as facts. Many are “dead” and their hearts are still beating.
.
“The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws in 1980 formulated the Uniform Determination of Death Act. It states that: “An individual who has sustained either (1) irreversible cessation of circulatory and respiratory functions, or (2) irreversible cessation of all functions of the entire brain, including the brain stem is dead. A determination of death must be made in accordance with accepted medical standards.” This definition was approved by the American Medical Association in 1980 and by the American Bar Association in 1981.”

GALS and WO think they run quite a force for change, but in reality their numbers are dwindling. Plus Gerry is so delicious to the eyes but those who can’t pass off his actions as adorable get disenchanted and move on IMO.

Good Afternoon JJer’s! Stopping in to catch up quickly and throw a few updates your way off of the GB news feed:

Not sure of the timeline on this, but looks like GB could be traveling somewhere today.

This is from Thursday:
Briony Johnstone
Thursday
- gerard butler was in Colette’s work last night and she didn’t think to CALL ME to make me come and ogle him!
(Colette works at Valerio’s Fish and Chip shop in Lanark, Scotland)

and then this from about an hour ago:
Alana Mathers @Lalalana_x Close
Gerard Butler was on my plane, and now I’m off to Singapore! 2011 is working hard to beat 2012 before its even begun… ;)
12:28 PM – 31 Dec 11 via Twitter for iPhone

Says he WAS on her plane, but not sure where she flew into.

and then:

Can’t place where this kid was.

Looks like he may be on the move today, but doubt it’s anywhere far. London perhaps? If so, I bet we’ll get more tweets soon enough.

Hope you’re all having a great day!

I’m really curious why the Celtic team has adopted such a English tradition with singing a Broadway musical song at their games… I was thinking that was a crazy song to sing because it is from the musical Carousel sung after a character commits suicide. So I had to look it up and see why a sports team would embrace and surprise, it is an English tradition which started with the Liverpool team…
.
Wikipedia
=======
“You’ll Never Walk Alone” is a show tune from the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel.
.
In the musical, in the second act, Nettie Fowler, the cousin of the female protagonist Julie Jordan, sings “You’ll Never Walk Alone” to comfort and encourage Julie when her husband, Billy Bigelow, the male lead, kills himself to avoid capture during a failed robbery. It is reprised in the final scene to encourage a graduation class of which Louise (Billy and Julie’s daughter) is a member. Billy watches this ceremony during his return to Earth.
.
The song is also sung at association football clubs around the world, where it is performed by a massed chorus of supporters on matchday; this tradition began at Liverpool Football Club in the early 1960s and later spread to several other clubs.[1]
.
[1]Liverpool vs. Leeds United, F.A. Cup Final, BBC, 1965. “The song was covered by Liverpool group Gerry & The Pacemakers in 1963. At this time, supporters standing on the Spion Kop terrace at Anfield began singing popular chart songs of the day. The mood was captured on camera by a BBC Panorama camera crew in 1964. One year later, when Liverpool faced Leeds in the cup final, the traveling Kop sang the same song and match commentator Kenneth Wolstenholme commended the ‘Liverpool signature tune’.” Paul Coslett, You’ll Never Walk Alone BBC Online. 9 June 2008.
==========
.
So I’m curious why it would be so readily adopted by the Scots or any other team if it is considered a “Liverpool signature tune.” Just curious…
.
BTW Happy New Year to you, Mister, and Maggie. :)

@Can’tGetEnough:
.
Happy New Year and thanks for the constant news.
.
I know I’m forgetting many here by name, so a Happy New Year to all JJers.

@oy:
.
I’m still giggling at your post. Happy Happy New Year. I miss your sass. Hope to see a lot more of you in the New Year. :)))

@Manny:

It’s not a tradition to sing broadway musical songs at English football games. It’s mainly Liverpool that sing it in the English leagues, it’s a song about loss and standing together in the face of death, it’s mainly sung by clubs that have suffered great loss, both Liverpool and Celtic have.
-
Liverpool adopted it when Gerry and the Pacemakers (a Liverpudlian band) made the song famous in the UK in 1963.
-
Right, I have to prepare for 20-25 guests to descend on the house. So Happy New Year to everyone. Have a happy and healthy 2012.

4 hours to go here, and will be spending it quietly at home. This year have decided to end a year as a blonde and start 2012 as my more natural brunette!
I have a memory like a sieve , and more often lurk rather than post, so although I don’t remember all of names of the posters who have intrigued, amused, informed, astounded and enraged me in the past few months, I wish you all all a happy new year and look guests to ‘speaking’ to you next year! Take care of yourselves.

Thanks to all of the wonderful posters here. You have made me smile. belly laugh and sometimes cry but I wouldn’t have wanted to miss a minute of sharing that with all of you this year.
Hope for all the blessing in this world to come to you all. Hope dreams come true, hope you have good health and enduring love. Be safe and happy to all my FRIENDS here. HAPPY NEW YEAR♥♥♥♥!!!!!!
Gerry my big brute, hugs and well wishes to you in the new year♥♥

I have to say we are a curious group to say the least!!!! To those who post so many links of Gerry, I can’t thank you enough. And to our common denominator, Gerry Butler, I wish you much success and happiness in 2012. We here will continue to follow your films, your antics, your charm, and your hair!!!!

Happy New Year and Best Wishes to 2012. May Butler stay healthy and surprise us continously this year. I would say hopefully 2012 will be a better year for all but finally figuring out life doesn’t work that way. We can hope but be prepared for anything I guess.

I saw that one pic where Gerry is climbing a rope or up somethin’ (few posts back) was it because he was tryin to get away from you GF…? **shakes head again** shameful. Guess this Halloween you will have to forget going to the party as a Num….you wouldnt quit sweatin’ LOL….. HNY to you also! =)

@Can'tGetEnough @ 12/31/2011 at 8:03 pm

@Can’tGetEnough:
“Where he’ll wind up, nobody knows!”
.
Well, if he doesn’t have any business to attend to in the UK next week, as in taping the Graham Norton show, I can see him jetting to anywhere in the world really. However, if he does have to be in the UK on the 4th, then I think he won’t venture too far away.
.
But it’s a mystery now – when he was spotted on the plane, wasn’t it almost New Year in the UK? Where could he be going so close to the actual event? Isn’t he invited to some party that he has to be at in time? Otherwise, what good is it to be on a plane when the clock strikes midnight and you show up only 2 or 3 hours later?
.
Maybe he was flying against the clock and was heading back to the US in time for some party there, but still this is killing himself with all that jet lag, and all this unnecessary flying back and forth. Is Scotland so bad for spending NYE?
.
Either way, if he was going to a New Years celebration somewhere he would have to be flying either to London, which is not too far, or flying west – the more west he goes, the more chance he has in making it to any New Years party. So I’m beginning to think he might have been going to the US after all, or somewhere in the Americas actually.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to Lolita, RedOctober, Manny, CC, Tonto and all the Gerry fans…may 2012 bring more Gerry news, pics and movies…be safe..♥

curious cat @ 12/31/2011 at 8:43 pm

@Maggie P.U.:

I haven’t a clue what you were talkin’ about at #364 but it’s funny. And I love funny. Too much misery, heartache, suffering, horror, outrage in the world not to appreciate a belly laugh.

The two movies I saw the other night were SO interesting. The man who owns and runs this non-profit theater is part-Scottish among other things and runs Scottish films as well as others from all over the world. How did I forget about this gem of a theater? 19 reclining seats, and the woman that runs it will scold you to hurry up and go the bathroom if you must because she isn’t going to hold up the movie for you! Last night they served Christmas cookies! I should write a magazine article about this place, shouldn’t I?

“Rocket Post” was said to be “loosely based” on the life of German scientist Gerhard Zucker, who was sent to the Hebrides to do research on developing rockets and eventually, the film said, one of 1,000 German scientists executed for refusing to use their talents to support Hitler’s war efforts. he falls in love with a Scottish girl and the film is so funny and then turns dark and sad. Gritty and real.

“One Last Chance” follows 3 young guys who are high school friends trapped in deadend lives in a small town in the Highlands. I almost walked out, didn’t find the problems of young guys who smoke, drink and get into trouble very interesting, but the film took an unexpected comic turn as they use ingenuity to solve their problems.

Earlier I saw, “Afterlife” starring Kevin McKidd, which to me is up there close to “Dear Frankie.”

I love seeing films about real people in real situations in cultures I’m unfamiliar with. I soak everything up, how their kitchens look, the cars they drive, the places they hang out, the problems they face. I don’t need these Twilight fantasies or cartoons. I didn’t much care for kids’ movies when I was a kid.

My favorite scene in Dear Frankie is the one in which the whole town goes to a dance, kids to grandparents. Of course, they carried this tradition to the U.S. as immigrants and it contributed to the American country music and dancing I enjoy so much.

Hauoli Makahiki Hou, y’all. I’m sure you can figure out what that means on Dec. 31. :)

To all my female fans..

Where ever you are, what ever you are doing and whom ever you are with, may you be safe, happy and healthy and filled with lasting love and the joy of a brand new year. And may GB continue to confound us and delight us with his antics and most certainly his movies. Happy New Year! JJers!

Just bumped into Gérard Butler in Portsmouth

Maybe your original assumption that Gerry will go to London this year might just be true, but WO is still waiting for confirmation of this sighting. If there are more than one placing him in London, then he’s there.

The tweet said Gerry was seen in Portsmouth,not London.
Portsmouth is 57 miles away from London

@@FYI #377:
Yes, I see now. I thought Portsmouth was much closer to London.

What would Gerry be doing there? Maybe the guy just thought he bumped into Gerard Butler. This happens a lot.

My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.

So GB’s off the grid . . . MIA? Maybe he is getting some rest after all his holiday fun. Who knows. Wonder if he ever goes snowmobiling . . . since he seems fond of riding motorcycles. Snowmobiling is a blast . . . although not sure if it’s popular in Scotland but it seems like they do get the snow for it.

Maybe he’s doing a spot of skiing before he heads back to London for the Graham Norton show on the 4th. He loves to ski.

Yes, the picture was good. Wild hair, bangs, wavy, free, untouched by goop, gel or mousse, touchable. Big genuine happy smile. Could have been a manic day? No hint of sadness in his eyes. Very pert.

Quick pop on to say hi and Happy New Year! Hope everyone is safe and happy. Oh where oh where can our Butler boy be?? GFW, I hope you’re right about his travels being for the Burns project. Portsmouth is a great city. Spent my birthday there in 2005. Lovely. OK, GREAT story to share for the new year…..my BFF in real life looked over at me last night in the midst of the festivities (which ended up at my house) and said, “I get your new fascination with Gerard Butler.” I had mentioned him a couple times since April and she was obviously listening. She saw TUT (which I have not even seen yet) and then the recent articles and news flashes about his two-wave hold down caught her eye. So I took her hand and led her into my office where I typed GERARD BUTLER into the search engine at You Tube and watched the first vid that came up. The one called More Hilarious Gerard Butler Moments and while she watched him tell his story about his sister’s wedding and the kilt, my friends, I watched her get Butlerized right before my very eyes! It was classic!! She left this morning with her hubby AND POTO, Dear Frankie and Timeline in tow. Welcome another one to the the world of Butler! So funny! And by the way, she is on the short, darker hair team. :( God bless you all and enjoy the rest of your day! (Still hoping to watch PSILY this weekend). XXO

trying to figure it out @ 01/01/2012 at 6:35 pm

@GerrysFascinatingWoman
The south of England might work for the highlands of Scotland, nice countryside down there and plenty of castle ruins. Portsmouth is a naval town, so that may not work, unless it has architecture that could double for old Edinburgh. But there again you wouldn’t have the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle at the top of it.

This tweet that I posted this morning along with GB holding the baby:

My uncle was with Gerard Butler on his flight last night..so jealous. Him and my wee Blake<3 makes me wanna cry :(

Apparently the uncle (and GB) went to LONDON.

Now today, we have another tweet:

Macbeth question @ 01/02/2012 at 12:24 am

This has nothing to do with Gerry Butler, but going to be seeing the theatre production of “Sleep No More” in a few weeks, has anyone on this board seen it? Wanting to get a review of it before we go. With the main character Macbeth being Scottish and one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays, I figured it wound be a big hit in the UK, therefore thinking I could possibly get an good take on it. Thx….

Macbeth question @ 01/02/2012 at 12:27 am

*would be, not wound be. Thx again.

@ Dargabriel –

‘she will return in the spirit world, again at home. Ride the roller coaster as does she..’

Can you explain this please?

I think Gerry stil is in London….and will stay untill the Graham Norton show…does anyone knows when is when it will be in TV ??
Happy new year……

try sitting ina office allday @ 01/02/2012 at 3:56 am

Happy New Year to all Gerry lovers on this board !

Graham Norton lists – ‘Hollywood actor Gerard Butler ‘ on this weeks show. ……….a mistake, surely…..?

..Hollywood actor ???? has something happened in the last few weeks??

It should read – Gerard Butler Scottish actor – now Hollywood based…

Graham Norton can be ‘very cheeky’, so it should be an interesting interview. Hopefully, no questions about the time G got fired from his job as a lawyer or about the 20 actresses he has ‘dated’ or when he is getting married and settling down with kids. ..doubt it.

Should be fun interview anyway.

Hopefully Coriolanus is a success for G. Fingers crossed..xx

More on Marrakech:

It seems as though this dinner was with Wesley Sneijder. He’s the dutch soccer player whose wife Yolanthe did that interview with GB at his Malibu rental a few months ago. Apparently, Sneijder and Jennifer Cooke have all left Morocco today though, so no more parties with this particular group.
Makes sense for GB since it’s only about a 2.5 to 3 hour flight from London to Morocco. Guess he’ll go back for the Graham Norton show.

@Can’tGetEnough: What a different kind of life he leads. Jetting to Morocco for dinner with friends. I wonder if even that type of thing gets old after awhile? I think it would for me. But I guess it’s just business as usual for him. Is this what he wanted when he started out to be rich and famous? Could he be getting paid to be there, or is it just his idea of fun?

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/02/2012 at 10:09 am

Gerry flew to Marrakech for dinner on a whim? An invite no doubt. Is it warmer there? What fun! What a meal that had to be for certain. Lucky be him.
-
Damn, if that passport could talk, imagine the stories? Can you run out of space for port of entry stamps?
~K
who doesn’t think it gets old at all who thinks it’s a wonderful life

@Quinn: I was thinking along those lines. I dunno, but some of the people Mr. Butler hangs with seem like shallow types. I hope he was/is ‘working’ this gig.
New Year’s Eve, I watched Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffen (sp?), and at one point they were talking about the money to be made by celebrities for being seen at places and openings. They mentioned the (gag) Kardashians in particular.

@Quinn: I wondered that too. Seems Mr b has many he is friendly with, but how much is on a superficial or business level only? As he doesn’t appear to share his life with anyone, who does he confide his innermost feelings and thoughts with? Even long time friends have a business relationship, so I’m guessing there are some things he would not discuss with his manager/assistants/Ariel etc. I’m sure there are some topics he would also keep from his mother!
I suspect he is self sufficient, maybe even a loner, deep down. He flits like a social butterfly, seeking thrill after thrill, never content to just be. As one previous poster said, its a sophisticated way of avoidance, if you want to keep the barriers up. But what is the point of such life that misses out on all the wonders that comittment or family bring to even a mundane suburban existence? Professional success at what cost?

@bystander: Great observation. I wish I could have come up with something that eloquent. I totally agree with you.

Hollywood Gossiper @ 01/02/2012 at 11:38 am

@ally: Oh there is no doubt that many of GB’s more exotic invites have been paid gigs or at least all expenses paid gigs which is ironic, when you can afford to do these things yourself, they pay you. Some of the gigs he likely would never have attended unless someone paid him, like that hotel opening in Morocco, he brought Fry Guy to that one.

His trip to Rio seemed to be sponsored at least by Gillette and then he didn’t co-operate by shaving his beard, remember, but then he shaved his beard shortly thereafter so he wasn’t quite telling them the truth that he needed his beard for a movie.Though he did show up in a Gillette T-shirt the one night as I recall. But then I think some of the other Carnavale sponsors likely “donated” to his trip. That beer company with the orange shirts, they paid Madonna a million dollars for a 20 minute appearance in their cabana [with Gerry & Rodrigo & one of the Carnavale queens] though she did donate it to one of her charities.

Even last year’s NYE party held by that rich financier because it was very clear in that town of Punta Del Este, it was a big competition as to who had the better and more glittering party so I would not be surprised at the very least it was a expenses paid vacation. The guy was certainly flying in “models” from all over the world according to an article to “dress up” cough cough the party, he does every year. His celebrity quotient was Ron Wood and Gerard Butler.

But you do wonder if does all get a bit shallow. Most of us would rather spend NYE with true friends who are fun, in an exotic location would be a bonus naturally.

But the jet set keep on jet setting so it must be addictive. Maybe some people prefer shallow. Of course it is easier to be naughtier in some places more than others.

Macbeth question @ 01/02/2012 at 12:54 pm

If he didn’t want to be living the life that he does, he wouldn’t be.

——–

Thx for the thumbs up to my inquiry. Got some great reviews from friends, yet will check back for hopefully more from the people on this board that have seen the production. Sounds like it’s going to be good fun.

Late Gerry @ 01/02/2012 at 1:33 pm

So he was in Morocco on Sunday but was still in London Saturday. He probably missed the midnight part of NYE. He was still hovering in airports Saturday night per tweets. Those people don’t mention him being with them Saturday night, and most of them have left already.
Why doesn’t he ever stay in Glasgow for NYE? what’s so bad about that? The Scott seem to have a magnificent celebration.
http://www.strathearnsnapshots.co.uk/gallery_198746.html
.
Besides, all this unrest in that part of the world, wild horses couldn’t drag me there. Next door Tunisia is going through upheaval, and there is already unrest in Morocco. It’s only a matter of time. I’m hoping he’s out of there by now.

I have a sneaking suspicion it was a very last-minute decision. He wouldn’t still be in transit on NYE if this was planned. But I’m not sure it was a paid appearance. Too last minute for that, but who knows. Maybe he just decided to accept last minute.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/02/2012 at 2:15 pm

I kind of feel, like a lot of us, he gets caught up in the vibe of the season and simply follows his heart. Then, afterward, like today, like most of us, we’re decompressing from the high that it Christmas/New Year’s week.
-
So if there, I hope he simply remains for to get a really good night’s sleep, then head back for Norton’s show.
-
I’ve no idea what all enticed him to book a flight at such a time, leave Scotland for some foreign land, but that’s just Gerry. Maybe if we say leave, he’d stay? LOL Could he be an activity junkie?
-
Either way he’s an enigma unto himself and us. But I do believe for everything a reason. Might a stunner have invited him and he couldn’t say no? Hey, the food is good too!

Hey JJer’s! Here’s a photo of GB with his friend Wesley Sneijder:

http://www.whosay.com/wesleysneijder/photos/112497

Can'tGetEnough @ 01/02/2012 at 3:04 pm

I think everyone has made good points about GB’s excursion to Morocco. I get the feeling that perhaps he did spend New Year’s Eve in London because he was spotted on a plane yesterday. Not sure of the timing of it all, so he could have actually been on his way to Morocco or leaving! Either way, it definitely seemed like a last minute trip given the time he departed to or from London on Saturday night.

I think he is just accustomed to this lifestyle and he likes it. I believe he said in an interview awhile back, that on any given day, he’ll make a few calls, get a whole bunch of different plans going and then enjoys the chaos of trying to pick one place to go. I, too, wonder why he just didn’t stay around family and friends in the UK, but he is, without a doubt, a restless man. He probably phoned a few friends or got a few invites and then decided, what the heck, I’m out of here. That’s just Gerry!
At least we got to see a few photos of him from yesterday. That’s always a nice bonus for his fans.
Now who knows where he is today. Maybe resting up in Morocco before flying back to the UK for that show. As always, we’ll see where he pops up next.

Nice discussion on the board today! Hope you’re all having a great day!

Thanks, again CGE! We can’t get enough of all your efforts for us. ;) Gee wiz! This guy has oodles of friends it seems. He’s everybody’s buddy, men and women alike. As it was already stated here, It must get lonely at times and you have to wonder if he has any really close friends that are there for him besides family. It has to get lonely for him traveling all over the globe alone or at least we don’t see any fellow travels with him. Most of the time it appears he travels alone. He must be used to it I guess.

Late Gerry @ 01/02/2012 at 3:42 pm

UK and Morocco have the same time. It’s around 8.40 pm at both countries right now. So that means no jet lag for Gerry.
Also, it’s a short flight. Many travel agencies advertise a 48-hour trip to morocco from London. Apparently, it’s a common destination for the British to holiday in Morocco.
.
From the tweets and pictures of his friends it appears he had dinner with them Sunday night. They don’t mention anything about him partying with them Saturday night. True, he was spotted on a plane yesterday. I think he might have stayed in London for NYE celebration. Maybe Sunday morning he headed to Morocco.

At least he won’t experience jet lag. That’s always comforting.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/02/2012 at 3:55 pm

@Can’tGetEnough:

It all seems so terribly romantic. The lure of a call to come here or there to an exotic destination with the ability and freedom do listen to it. That’s some life. Love his lips, I mean… smile. ;o)

Here’s another photo from New Year’s Day:

http://yfrog.com/odcxknwj

Late Gerry @ 01/02/2012 at 5:48 pm

He needs a woman to sometimes put the breaks to him. Too much useless activity when he is not working. He needs a way to channel his energies; he needs a direction. A decent woman would have told him, “Perhaps we should stay and celebrate in Scotland this year,” or “Lets spend time in London with friends and family.” Something like that anyway.

All this traveling, even if he is not crossing time zones, gets to be too much after awhile. Maybe that’s why he doesn’t have a GF. Most women wouldn’t be able to handle his schedule or his lifestyle. Women like to put down roots somewhere, have a place to come to for more than just two days every three or four months. He thinks a girl will slow him down, and not let him go on and on in this manner, which is probably true. I think that’s why he insists on being single for now.

437: or maybe he was looking for a woman during his trip to Morocco to bring back to Scotland . . . from the group he was with I’m sure he must have had fun or else why venture over there. Good for him I guess.

Late Gerry @ 01/02/2012 at 7:15 pm

Oh boy, the moment someone mentions he should find a decent woman we get negs. Too many jealous fans that can’t stand to think of him with someone other than themselves. And they say they come here only to look at his pictures. I think they come here for much more than that judging by the jealousy.

Late Gerry @ 01/02/2012 at 7:15 pm

They are his type. Maybe he ended up hooking with one of them. One can never be sure what he’s up to lol

Late Gerry @ 01/02/2012 at 8:07 pm

WO found another picture from that night with this gorgeous girl who is another one of Yolanthe’s friends. She is very much his type and does some modeling.

Who knows if he hooked up with her or anyone else. Just a possibility though. One never knows, and he’s not telling lol.

http://attuworld.com/just-attu/elaine-ten-cate-daughter-of-former-chelsea-coach-henk-ten-cate.html
She is a bit risque, but then why would he care if it’s a one time deal? Besides, maybe he likes them risque? He told Pierce Morgan he likes sexy women. Well, there she is.
.
The only thing is he doesn’t seem too thrilled to be posing with her. One never knows what he’s thinking.

@Late Gerry:

I’ve noticed that the women do get annoyed when there is an assumption about Gerry &~ a woman. Then they say they will be happy for him if he does find someone. Hmmmmm I’m thinking not. The girl is definitely cute. Yet who knows who he will eventually be with long term. Or what she will look like or be. It is interesting to wait &~ watch 2 find out.

Late Gerry @ 01/02/2012 at 9:14 pm

@TL:
I agree. But, they also negged you for thinking the same way. I reversed one of them for you since I don’t find what you said to be so bad where you deserve to be negged.
.
“The girl is definitely cute. Yet who knows who he will eventually be with long term. Or what she will look like or be.”
.
I agree here too. Who knows indeed. She might be someone who doesn’t look like his usual type at all.

I agree! Let’s wait and see where, how, and with whom he’ll end up in the end.

angelsrock @ 01/02/2012 at 9:21 pm

I, for one, would love to see him in a relationship. Not the “merry-go-round” type we see with Clooney and DiCaprio who change girlfriends with the seasons, but a nice solid romance.

@Late Gerry:

I gave you the thumbs up 2. I don’t see what’s so bad. ?? It will be great when he finds the one for him. However he is most likely doing some major filtering. Like some men do. So long as he is being “safe” about it I don’t see the problem.

Late Gerry @ 01/02/2012 at 9:50 pm

@angelsrock:
Yes, that’s the kind of relationship I was speaking about.
.
@TL:
Yes filtering. I think he’s filtering this much because he’s not ready for something really serious right now. I think he likes his freedom too much, and he is just putting the “inevitable” marriage thing off as much as possible.
.
I know people like that myself. They know they eventually want to settle down but always look for excuses to put it off longer and longer. I have a feeling his mum would like to see him settled like his siblings are. Maybe that’s why he doesn’t like to spend too much time there. Everyone in his family his age are married with kids, and he feels inadequate, yet he knows he isn’t interested in marriage right now.
.
If he weren’t famous and were in this situation, some people might think of him as a loser. But because he is so successful and famous, he can do whatever he wants, and girls much younger would still go out with him.
.
I also don’t see a problem with him not wanting to settle down. I only mentioned it because i think it would be a good influence on him if he falls in love with the right woman. The right kind of love helps. If he doesn’t find it, he should stay single.

@Late Gerry:

Absolutely. Great post.

I myself object only to the idea of him needing a woman to settle him down not of a woman. its like the idiotic line “you complete me.” No one has that kind of power over someone or should. If he needs someone to become a better person he should stay solo until he realizes where the power lays.

.
BTW, Moroccan food is delicious. The pita bread hot from the oven – you can’t stop eating it – it melts in your mouth. The eggplant and hot pepper salads. The chumos and tehini in olive oil with zaatar is finger-liking good. And the meats, just delish. Middle eastern food is very good, so is mediterranean, and they are very healthy too.

Late Gerry @ 01/02/2012 at 10:48 pm

@PsychoB:
What you’re describing is co-dependency. No one is talking about that kind of relationship. We’re speaking about being happy. All the studies show that married people or people in relationships, are happier and live longer.
No one is an island. We all need someone in our lives. Being in love is infinitely better than living your life alone, or migrating from one failed relationship or hook up to the next.
.
People need people. We shouldn’t be ashamed of that. It doesn’t mean we’re weak or that we can’t live alone. It means it’s more fun to have someone to love, that’s all.

Relationships of all kinds are there to show us who we are. If we need someone to pick up where we believe we lack, then not only will it fail in the end but you get in a cycle of the same over and over again. No woman will ever ground him, or should want to. He can only do that himself. There is never anything to fix or change about someone. The people he is with are nothing but mirrors of who he is. As he changes, as we all do, the people around him change.

On our course through life, we will meet the people who are coming to meet us.
-
He simply prefers to go his own way, in his own manner. He’s claimed his freedon and loves it!
-
He’s good and kind, and a thankful creature. He’s generous, and loves all the joys of the season. His passions for to cram as much of into his life in as little time as he can, is so him. He’s a little wild, but a good man at heart. He is emotionally capable of whatever he wishes, when he so wishes so until then he’s simply single.

He’s a star that never loses its glitter (to me).

Joie de Vivre @ 01/03/2012 at 7:43 am

@angelsrock: @PsychoB: @Late Gerry: Some good points made in this discussion. I believe the relationships we should take the time to nurture in our lives should be with people we just plain enjoy being with and who are positive for us, not those who might try to drag us down. It’s really very basic stuff. Does he/she continue to make us laugh, think, learn, reach, imagine, hope? And when we consummate love with the right partner, sometimes, we evolve a little more into the person we were meant to be. While I agree with the idea that no one should choose to be with someone to better him/herself, very often when we are with the right person, the best comes out in us anyway. I am one who is hoping that he finds someone to share his life with intimately and monogomously someday, IF that is what he really wants. We’ll have to stay tuned to see how things unfold.

Joie de Vivre @ 01/03/2012 at 7:53 am

@GerrysFascinatingWoman: “He’s a little wild, but a good man at heart.” Yep, and that is what makes him so endearing. And I’ll bet he does work in that reverse psychology method at times. And he has no filters sometimes. All part of Butler! Love it!

Well, it is said, angry people do the opposite of what we want them to. Not that he’s angry by any means. Maybe sticking around Scotland was simply too boring? Dunno.
-
The lure of some exotic land, with another beauty’s company (it seems), was far more glamorous to hang with the money to burn crowd? Dunno. Do know he keeps his word about staying in touch with some people who are worthwhile in his life by any means necessary. But the thought of him spending NYE in a transit lounge is sad… if he did.
~K
wondering where next Nepal, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Egypt? He’s as many days as countries until his next ‘appointment’!!

“The only thing is he doesn’t seem too thrilled to be posing with her. One never knows what he’s thinking.”

-
I tend to agree with this thought. He’s obliging her, or her ‘career’ (if this is the ‘model’ in question). It’s just another photo with a stunner who may, or may not, provide something in exchange? Not my business.
-
Also she, and this might get me raked over the coals, but she looks insane. Seriously. And way up to something as in all about her? Okay, I’ll take the thumbs down for this comment.

@Late Gerry:
“People need people.”
-
I’d quote your entire post but this part is what interests me. It seems you try to indicate he doesn’t have people who matter to him beyond business or family? Why? If this is your aim, take my word for it, you’re wrong. He’s plenty of emotional connections, and intellectual connections with a wide variety of humans, both men and women.
-
But in all honesty, I feel, he adores the company of really funny, intelligent, imaginative women who give him praise, nurture his inner child and soul, speak to him as an adult, cherish his wisdom, allow him to be himself, and hold the rung a tad higher than his one-night, two-night, eight-night stands. And, that he has these better women in his life. He’s very content man as simply single. Just hyper is all. Has manic phases. It’s him. He’s a Jack Russell, not a Labrador Retriever.

You have a very good attitude about love. I like your view on it.
The right kind of love is not a one-way street. It should work for both parties.
It’s not about changing your partner, it’s about developing together as a couple.
You sound as a person in a relationship with someone very special, and you guys have been together for a long time now.
Yes, i wish something like that for Gerry. I really think he needs it.

@Late Gerry:

I have to giggle a little at that comment because I’m not sure I would wish Gerry on a “good woman.”

Not quite sure why the negs because most actors have narcissistic tendencies and enjoy the applause and adoration. That is why they are in the business they are in. ☺

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:
He looked like he wasn’t too thrilled in the picture but that doesn’t mean it was really so.

Remember, a picture only captures an instant in time. It’s possible at that instant his facial expression lacked a smile, so in the picture he didn’t look that happy. Doesn’t mean anything. For all we know he was enjoying her company all night long.

BTW, I don’t think she looks insane, if anything, Gerry had a very weird look on him at that instant.

And don’t forget, if she is right for him, he has to be right FOR HER. Otherwise, it won’t work. I think that’s Joie’s point too.

When it’s right, it’s right – and it’s right for both – that’s all.

Like I said, I was willing to be raked over the coals for the call. “I say so I find.” Caught in an instant or not… she’s way TO into it. Like she landed a cash cow. But if keep on I’ll get speared for being jealous, jada-jada. I’m like he agreed to the photo. That’s that. Think that’s what I see on his face, but not hers. No further comment on her.
-
As for him and his popping up in Morocco out of the blue? As Joni Mitchell sings, “he owns a madman’s soul” and was looking for a woman to “cork and spark”. Not that he isn’t allowed. This woman could be his invite and reason for being there on the spur of the moment? That’s fine with me as long as he does not wreck himself because he can’t say no. Also I do not mean (by that lyric) he’s nuts or crazy, insane or off the hook. He’s got an unbridled vibrancy about and for life along with a passion most do not.

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:
“He’s plenty of emotional connections, and intellectual connections with a wide variety of humans, both men and women.”
.
I agree with you, he does. But all of these connections don’t compare to one, very SPECIAL one.
.
What makes a partner different from family, friends, business associates, etc, is his/her specialness. You don’t interact with your buddies the same way you interact with your love, and i don’t mean just the sex. It goes much deeper than that.
.
So maybe all of these people are very interesting, and we know he has countless of friends, I still think he needs that one very SPECIAL connection. We all do. Gerry is no exception.

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:
You’re fu/ck!ng crazy and you sound jealous.

You’re spamming the board. Go get something to do.

@niknoks:
Then do not see The Artist or Beginners as they both have the same highly intelligent hyper-active handsome amazing dog who is a scene stealer too!

Just feel his wiring makes him, like us, who we are. Feel somehow he might wish he could slow it down but enjoys the high of his manic stages so deals with the lows when they invade. And calling him a JR is not trying to insult him. Feel he knows he has peaks and valleys like us ALL.
-
No one can change anyone. Yet love changes everything! Anyone who tries to change Gerry is going to fail. Find the right pair of shoes if you wish to wear them for a long time!
-
And he needs to start being as genuinely authentic as he can more now than ever. People either like him as is, or not. He should rather be liked for who he is than not for who isn’t. Either way he’d lose them if they were faking it and they’d totally lose him if they were. He’s very intuitive.
-
This is why so many couples break up at the 3 month mark or the 2-year mark if they get married. In that amount of time people’s veils or masks come off eventually. Oh, and dare I say Russell Brand and Katy Perry? That’s what happened there too (IMO).

Timing is everything to men. And they work off their own, not yours. You say you’re not trying to change him but reads like it. And you’re starting to sound like Brooke.
-
With that said, sorry but it is just my opinion that he’s just not that into having any relationship now. And for very good reason (I think). And don’t think he’s all that alone emotionally either. Just a hunch. He’s a close circle who nourish him. His soul, heart. And others he uses for his physical needs.
-
He picks a certain type from his dating sameness pool, that’s huge btw, who is of a certain age and mind-set to keep things easy. His passion is his career. It’s his wife, child, and partner of the heart… in my opinion. And with Coriolanus coming up next, even more so.

At the risk of sounding Daragabriel-ish (which I will) as for his photo with the wide-eyed painted face? A gift from him to her, which I respect: his face is hidden, as a moon is clouded over, so that those who should not see won’t. There is power in his world like those painted faces at parties that seem to recognize him but they don’t. I’m inside his hearing and delighted laughter and have become a spirited Nile.

Between rumor and truth @ 01/03/2012 at 2:35 pm

The ‘Hollywood’ community uses rumors and innuendo to get fans to believe the stories they weave. Then rumors to the contrary stir the pot more. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle.
Here’s the latest rumor–just a rumor– I have heard–that the owners of the Gerard Butler message boards know the truth behind Mr. Butler and are paid by Butler’s “people” to conduct those fan sites to help promote his image. I asked my source what Mr. Butler had to hide and they would not say but would only wink at me and say, “What do you think? 40-something, never married, only seen with a few women that seem like publicity dates.”
I don’t get the gay vibe from Mr. Butler but maybe he has a wife and kids hidden somewhere? Or I could have the worse gaydar in the world.
As for the fan sites, I have often wondered what the administrators of the fan sites get out of promoting Mr. Butler. His movies have not been big hits since “300″ and his public image is not that great. It makes sense that these fan sites would be on Mr. Butler’s payroll. Since this is a gossip site, what do you guys think?

U know this board is really losing it when most are agreeing with and making friends with GFW. WOW is not enough. The thread has officially gone mad.

She does sound jealous. I said it yesterday. Some of the posters here can’t handle thinking of Gerry in a meaningful relationship. They start twisting what you say and making it sound as if you meant something else.

I don’t believe for a minute he is gay but I’m not arrogant enough to say I “know” for sure because I don’t “know and neither do you…

The past couple of days had been nice coming here to JJ and reading up on GB without all the mud slinging. Now it starts again. I don’t care if this is a public site or not, and don’t need someone spouting off about freedom of speach and people respecting others’ opinions. People SHOULD be able to read about whetever topic they want without all the freaking nastiness. And no, I don’t want to go to any of the fan sites because they are as much of a nuisance as the one’s who like to stir the pot.

It’s obvious who changed the atmosphere here on the board, let’s just see how long it keeps up.

Between rumor and truth @ 01/03/2012 at 5:39 pm

@bystander:

What I heard was the fan sites are paid PR. I was told that many of them get into premieres, etc… I don’t personally know anyone on the fan sites and I am not very familiar with them. But I did a quick google search for Gerard Butler forums and found Weirdly Obsessive, Gerard Butler Gals, Celtic-Hearts, The Butler’s Pantry, etc… If those people aren’t being paid, I feel sorry for them. They post everything he does, just at a quick glance. Who is willing to do that much work for free? Either they are getting paid or they have sad, sad lives.
Everyone jumped on the gay bandwagon but my source never said specifically he was gay. It could be a hidden family. All we can do is speculate, anyway. I don’t believe that poster who said “she knows stuff.” whoever she is. I don’t think that anyone who really ‘knows stuff’ would post on a gossip site. I wasn’t sure who Mr. Butler was until he came up in a conversation about celebrities with crazy fans who believe anything that is printed about them. There seem to be more of them in America than in Europe.
I was also told he snogged some girl on the street one time and the pics were posted and everyone believed that it was a random snog. She was apparently in on the stunt and is now coming forth with the fact that it was fake. I got this second, maybe even third hand so I am not sure if the incident happened and if what was told to me was true.

I don’t think you know anything sweetheart.

The only thing you’re right about is him not being gay; that is very obvious to see. Most of us can conclude just from following him over the years that he’s not gay. You don’t have to be “I know stuff” to figure that one out.

At the beginning of 2011 everyone had high hopes for a banner year for Mr. Butler. Afterall MGP sounded like a award contender and a high brow film like Coriolanus sure would put Mr. Butler on the map for movies for people with a brain. Much wrangling later when all dust settled MGP turns out to be a dud and now all hopes are on Coriolanus..which prob will come and go without much fanfare.

It seems like Mr. Bulter’s train has left the station. His looks are not as reliable anymore, on some days he looks still like a leading man but on others he looks aged prematurely and tired. Even his up and down weight issue bears the sign of slower metabolism, another sign of premature aging for a guy in his early 40s.

Charm and being lucky can only do so much and I hope he realizes he may not have as many options as when he was younger. Not long from now he would look ridiculous in action movies and romcoms don’t usually hire older and tired looking actors as leading men. Now is the time for him to treat acting as a serious craft and not a vehicle to gain gratification in fame and women. For him it’s now or never if he still considers making better than average movies and being taken as a serious actor.

I know you are lonely and have so removed yourself from real life that you spend an amazing amount of time alone writing about what you wish you could live. Is any of this getting through to you??? Maybe 2012 should be the year of Kathy not GFW. Maybe you should step away from Gerry for a whole month and find what in Kathy’s life makes you happy. Just food for thought…

You know you’re not the center of attention here that’s what you know.

Said by you…

Aan is not his soulmate. If Alan was his soulmate wouldn’t that make Gerry gay??? *rolling eyes*
.
If Gerry can so easily rate women as f*ckable pieces of meat and his mother and sister are women…. why would it be so hard to believe he could be that disrespectful to his gay friends?”
-
-
What a STUPID thing to say. As as for the last part? I’m speechless. Totally. It is so ugly, foul, mean and heartless. Jealous, much? Angry, much? Bitter, much? Frustrated, much? And totally untruthful. I think you might need to find a new “hobby” than being here. Or maybe I do? Yeah, that’s the ticket. I do. You disgust me, and others, you angry soul you.

#509: Nice article / interview.

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:
You idiot, how is his soul mate going to be gay if he’s heterosexual?
Tell me how does that work, Ms ‘You know stuff”?

Between rumor and truth @ 01/03/2012 at 8:02 pm

@Question:

I don’t claim to know anyone. I am just mentioning rumors I heard. I found this board through google and I was mistaken in thinking that some people may really know things about Mr. Butler. The board just seems to be a bunch of people arguing with each other over someone I don’t think any of them have met.
Even the one who claimed to “know stuff” did know anything about the girl he snogged on the street but I have since found an article about it. It does look like a publicity stunt.
I am sorry. I don’t know anything about “rules” on a gossip forum and I don’t want to be hateful to anyone and I hope I didn’t come across that way. I was just asking a question about something I heard.

@Manny:
That sounds so much like what I heard from his friend about what they do. Even if he doesn’t end up picking up anyone at a certain night he engages in mind games. The stuff I heard is very funny. They’re both dogs. but my buddy is fun. I might get invited to go out with them one night. Then ask me if any of it is really true.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/03/2012 at 8:08 pm

@Josh:
How does it work? I’ll tell you that being a soul-mate has nothing to do with sex or intimate relations, you fool. How’s that for knowing stuff. Two words: grow up. Two more? YouHaveNever BeenInRealLove

there is room for all on the internet :)

@ Manny #516:

You are too funny! Why don’t you just calm down…obviously you have taken offense at my last comment, which shouldn’t have hit your nerve if you had nothing to do with changing the mood here on the board.

I know it’s not nice here all the time, you and a few others make sure of that. But when it IS nice, it makes for a much better time here on this board.

And really? You’re asking me where I was when you “poor Manny” were being crucified? First of all, I’m not on here all the time as I clearly don’t remember that exchange, but regardless, you should be big girl enough to handle your own, as you have claimed to be able to do on SO MANY different occassions.

What is it with you Manny? You are so back and forth. One day you want the world to feel sorry for you and defend you, and on all other days you claim to have a pair of balls you keep in your purse.

Do you where big girl pants or little girl pants?

Either way, you need to pull them up and stop taking comments so personally….unless you feel they apply to you with good reason ;-)

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/03/2012 at 8:17 pm

@Between rumor and truth: No, all you want to do is come in here and spread some crap and nonsense about his fan sites suggesting he’s gay/homosexual because he’s not seen with someone. That is stupid. Your source is a stupid person.
-
Here, that crap will be shot down… which is why people like me are banned from them. Need I say more? And these very fan sites, who muzzle and repress posters harbor this kind of contempt disgusts me…as it does, (sitting down) him. Is that clear? No wonder their sites are dead. They’re funding running dry. They push everyone away that attracts discussion for the need of a ‘happy’ place. Friction propels growth. Not idleness, sameness.
-
Fact. WOGB, GB.net/GBGF.com are dead, been dead. Why, even IMDb is dead. Well, my New Year’s goals are to spend less time at silly gossip/fan sites like this. I have my blog, and my VSR (Very Special Readers) and that’s enough. I know that. C.h.e.e.r.s. All the best.

She also dissed on some others… Charlie Sheen calls women ho’s and Lindsay Lohan kept asking if people were looking at her. Oh and Hugh Jackman is just as nice as he seems and was very attentive to his wife. And Eva Longoria is very funny, who would have thought.

If you do end up out on the town with “the boys” I wouldn’t come back here and say anything… Some of Gerry’s online mommies will be looking to give you a smack. :)

Sorry if I’m a bummer but I’ve had enough of her insufferable “know stuff” crap. I said my piece and tried to reason with her. I let her get a rise out of me with her attacks and responded in kind. My bad. :)

I should know better than to try and reason with her… you just can’t.

@Josh:

I suppose I can get that. That is definitely most heterosexual males way of thinking. As long as he and his friends are not making lewd jokes about homosexuals and women like 14 year olds.
:::::::::
@Manny: Exactly.
I’m also having problems thumbing, something must be up.

That is correct that none of us here know the guy, this is all just speculation. Nothing should be taken as truth. I think we can all agree that most of us would like more tolerance however, but this isn’t a utopian society.

@Beth H.:

Sorry Beth… you made a snide comment to me recently because I tried to politely point out to you that if you wanted all Gerry discussion, you were complaining people were talking about themselves and not Gerry here, to go to a fansite. That is why I thought you were waggling a finger a finger at me.
.
Now from your post I see you were clearly trying to be as you say, “not so nice” around here too. Welcome to the wallow little piggie.

Between rumor and truth @ 01/03/2012 at 8:30 pm

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:

Why would I want to spread anything about his fan sites given that until about 24 hours ago, I didn’t know they existed. I don’t live in your “fantasy” world.

I agree with Manny. You have some mental problems. I mean, get real! You call names and get upset on a gossip board, which is all this is. This is not real life.

I was just curious about the fan culture, which I know little about. This seemed to be a place to ask questions, since it is not a fan site like Weirdly Obsessive, GBGals or the Butler’s Pantry.

I hope you keep your resolution and stay away. I would like to discuss on this board without childish attacks and I think there are some people mature and non-delusion on this board.

@ Manny #533:

You?…Polite??… *snort* That is one of yours, isn’t it? You know, the “snort” thing ;-)

The last time I posted a comment on here was when Eve first made her appearance and began making this site even more toxic than it already was.

And as my grandmother used to say, “When you play with trash, it’ll get in your eye.” So yes, any convo with you will get anyone in the wallow, as that’s where you like to stay.

Now, I’m done with you. I have no more to say as I’m done wallowing in your mess with you. Have fun with all the other piggies! Ciao! *muah!*

Late Gerry @ 01/03/2012 at 8:59 pm

OMG, everyone is so busy fighting, no one even noticed or bothered to ask the “The Monsoon Diaries” how things went with Gerry. I do hope Calvin is still around to answer. By the look of it, they had a great adventure in North Africa.

@Between rumor and truth: What I find fascinating from a socio-anthropological perspective is how intensely these individuals begin to define themselves within the context of something as benign and relatively meaningless as a “gossip” site. It’s either fascinating or disturbing depending on the day. Do a random count of posts and pay particular attention to how one sided some of the ramblings are. It speaks mightily to me of the deep loneliness that must exist.

@Beth H.:

This place is either a full on catfighting or a lovefest. There are so many types of personalities on these threads. It’s a real lesson in online decorum and psychology. Sometimes you get worked up, then feel stupid for doing so. It’s a gossip site. I’m sure most have beautiful people that love them dearly in their RL. I know I do. It’s definitely too much to take at times though. It is fun to pop in here and there, yet it is getting tiring. Speaking of that, going to go do something useful. Cheers!

"I did it my way" Gerry @ 01/03/2012 at 9:11 pm

OK, I’m going to change my moniker because I don’t in particular like “Late Gerry” . It sounds as if he’s dead or something.

I only used it originally to signify that he was late to NYE party, since more than likely he was in transit when the clock hit midnight. Which, BTW, it is how it usually goes with him. He is often late.

So now that this whole matter is over with, it’s time to change it to something nicer, “I did it my way” Gerry, because in the end, he always does it his way.

@TheDoctorIsIn:

I agree, Doctor. Married people can be lonely, too so when someone tells me they are married, I don’t believe for a minute that they are “happy” people if they spend hours on a gossip board. This is not real life.
However, this a fascinating psychological study. I came on here because I am home sick with the flu and I was bored and to ask some questions. Instead, I was called names, my “source” was called names and not one single person weighed in intelligently on the questions I posed.
It’s like a train wreck. It’s sad, tragic and you don’t want to look but you can’t help yourself. I have found myself spending a few hours of my day in this wreckage.
BTW, I spend a few minutes looking on the fan sites and they are disaster on a much larger scale!

@Really….:

Who is Georgia?

Just visiting @ 01/03/2012 at 9:22 pm

Come on people, surely everyone knows by now about Gerry’s secret wife and family stashed away back in Scotland? Word has it that wifey is a sweet little shepherdess/librarian and each year GerBear travels by land, air and sea, come rain, hail or shine to make it back home for Christmas to play Santa for their brood. This is so old news for those of us really ‘in the know’. Methinks GFW and some others really need to get with the program. LOL.

IMO of course all the PR etc b/llshit surrounding Gerry B is FAKE! Like some of the handsomest stars of old with seemingly limited talent, or for whatever reason, Gerard Butler and his publicity machine have worked hard for him to become first and foremost a ‘movie star’ and a celebrity who is a complete enigma to his moviegoing public.

As somewhat of a fan, It confuses me a little that GB and his people haven’t focused better on his acting career and have used such poor judgement in their choice of so many lightweight or mediocre film scripts, not really giving him much chance to expand on acting talent that I believe is there. He has also had some high profile A List, extremely talented female co-stars along the way. Kind of reminds me of Dennis Quaid back in the 80′s. Big name female co-stars like Cher and Jessica Lange, Streep etc in B type movies generated to make him a star. Although I did think The Big Easy was a smart film. Quaid seems to have come into his own and earned decent respect as an actor in more recent years. Hopefully it will happen like that for GB.

Sorry you got beat up. Today was not a banner day here, and yes I know I was partly to blame. Now that hubby is home safe I know I will be able to sleep again and be nicer in the future. Cheers! :)

I would like to see GB become more respected in the field . . . I enjoy his acting and also think he has it in him to go the distance. There is a difference between a movie star and an actor and there are pros and cons to both. Wonder if GB ever does decide to have a steady GF, get married, have a family ,etc. maybe the bickering on this site will end . . . to be replaced by home improvement/interior design tips and recipes.

Thanks Manny. I never pegged you as a member of a fan site. That’s a different kind of crazy. I feel sorry for you for putting up with the one who “knows stuff.”

Manny came on here with the soul purpose to attack. Judging from the thumbs none of us are okay with her actions.

To all of you who “know stuff,” want to name call or tell others to “shut up” because you don’t agree with them, please get help. This is a gossip board not something to get angry about. How do you handle things in real life if what is said on an anonymous gossip board makes you so angry.

Shame it all got a bit nasty.

I think best way to judge a person’s character is by the majority, of friends and accquitances he or she chooses to REGULARLY hang around with and what they say and do. Then you get a pretty accurate idea of what that person is really like.

It appears if she isn’t the center of attention, getting all the kudos for her fun of “joking” about Gerry with her sour tongue, and negative comments, she gets really nutty. Something triggers a dive someplace dark. That’s when I took my cue to exit through the gift shop. (a title of a movie btw) It got a bit scary yesterday. I saw her heading to a really dangerously mental state and left. I really feel sorry for her. She can dish it out, but can’t take it. I know that.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/04/2012 at 7:19 am

@Really….:
She does. Love-sick. Insisting he is in a relationship (with her in her mind) when he is so far from it as locked-up wrapped with chains as a sunken treasure. The runaway was an insecure heartless cold doozie (as Mike would say in TUT). Hard when you try, for want of something, then get treated like that. Bu he’s not emotionally disconnected to women and does not turn bitter just inward. He starts rebuilding his inner game. He lives too often by his head, not his heart. Terribly hurt by aloof, cold, all about them women that fail to even see him but for what he can do for them… much like ‘the painted face” with the wild look in her eyes photo.
-
Feel his heart is still cradled and tended to by people who love and understand him who have his best interests at heart. His heart first, his career second. As for him right now? It’s his career first, his heart second. And he holds the timer to change that.
-
Not too many understand him but his manager does. A few others too. He’s terribly complicated. So is his mind (being taken care of), and he takes care of his body by catch and release in his deep dating pool of dating sameness. Do not be too worried. He loves his extraordinary life.

I saw A Dangerous Method again this weekend. Nothing new out and movies are an addiction. There, I said it.
-
But it was better the second time, with the exception of Knightly who over did it (as in too much). But it is an interesting script that is GB related. How? Why? Freud and Jung became friends (but ended because Carl wouldn’t comply and became the better shrink and Freud knew it and did not want to be analyzed but only to analyze (him) because they were both studying something similar.
-
Freud believes adamantly ALL neurosis is linked to sex. So, that being said, we all (I believe) suffer some neurosis (including these two we come to find out) so is Freud right?
-
Jung agreed but had more heart and soul, even if he had a mistress all his life (starting with this patient turned ex-patient whom he nurtured into a doctor of her own ranking), wanting to not only find the problem but offer a solution unlike Freud who was only into saying this is what’s wrong with you for this reason.

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:
“who thinks the London screening will bring us Gerry all cleaned up proper again and very soon indeed… all is well… so glad to see him home… it just tickles my fancy for some reason… his being away from Hollywood and all”

Yes!! I was thinking the same thing—all spiffed up, nice suit, happy smile—–I like when he’s home too. Something about it, right??

GerrysFascinatingWoman,

You are a scary person. If you said in real life what you say on these boards, you would be in jail or a mental hospital. Of course, you hide behind your moniker and behind Internet anonymity. Gerard Butler, if he doesn’t already, should have some kind of restraining order on you. The claims that “you know stuff” about Gerard Butler don’t make you look important, they make you look nuttier than a fruitcake. I don’t think for a minute that any of his close friends would post on this gossip board nor do they even care it exists. I think Gerard Butler is to busy making movies and living his life to care about a gossip board. The only way anyone would ‘know stuff” is through stalking or hacking his computer and both are crimes.

I am scared for Gerard Butler but I am also afraid of Manny, who is the target of your rage. While anyone can claim to be anything on these boards, Manny seems to have a job and a husband and by her posts, she is believable.

You, on the other hand, scream crazy with your posts and your “followers” who thumb up everything you say are even crazier for supporting you. You don’t seem to have a job besides writing porn–I am sure your parents are proud–and staying on these message boards day and night.

I won’t claim I “know stuff” but I am very familiar with the law. I don’t want to come close to your craziness but I hope someone reports you one day because you don’t belong in normal, decent society.

Hello again Manny

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/04/2012 at 11:36 am

@Scary:
Manny, oh Manny, has doing an ‘all nighter’ gotten you off to yet another bad judgmental start? Orange juice, toast, scrambled eggs and getting into your laundry might help (along with a therapist). Cheers! I’ll say no more but that Manny has more rage for me than I for her. She doesn’t matter enough to upset me. See, that’s the difference. Security.

@Can’tGetEnough:
Yes indeed! SO glad he backtracked and did not end up in Turkey, Egypt, or Nepal! LOL (whew) He is off to starting 2012 differently! (big smile)

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/04/2012 at 11:55 am

You know what? I’m sensing this woman is really under stress brought about a deep hate for me and it might be best to give her, her playpen back. To have to morph into other monikers to get her message across is a sign I need to take seriously. I’m the cause of her dementia. Cheers!
~K
who has a place to speak about Gerry and wish you guys much fun here and that your forum returns to its normalcy

I am not Manny and I think at times she is just as scary as you are and at times she seem normal. I don’t think she needs to be locked up or put away.
But everyone who I have let read your posts agree that Gerard Butler needs to be protected from you, if he hasn’t already figured out who you are and got a restraining order. Your claims to ‘know stuff’ are downright psycho and shows that you would stalk him or hack his computer to “know” those things.
You are the only regular poster who claims to have an inroad with Gerard Butler. Either you are making that up or you have been stalking him and hacking his accounts. I do hope that Butler’s people are made aware of your claims to “know stuff” and see how dangerous you are.

Well didn’t it all just get a little silly last night and in the early hours of this morning. It’s funny how the majority of the troublemakers are people we’ve never seen before, they all agree with each other, all arrive and all disappear at the same time.

Hopefully, with the Coriolanus première and the Graham Norton Show we will have new threads and new pics soon.

Eh? Everyone? Eh? Look, this is a… and I’ll say this slowly… a gossip site. I can claim to be the woman in the moon if I want, get it? Now get over it. So in other words I don’t know anything. It’s speculation. Others say Gerry is _______. But I do it, and I’m a lunatic. Whatever. LOL It’s all very amusing to me how much seriousness anyone puts into gossip site chatter!
-
Like I said, I don’t mean to cause an ill person to deteriorate like she did yesterday. Sometimes ‘normal’ and sometimes ‘scary’ has bi-polar written all over it. At least I’m fairly, if not totally, consistent. And interesting. And she simply cannot stand the thumbs up. How f’n childish and immature?? How people liking my posts flip her out? Seriously is that normal? Again, I’m gone. And if I say it, I mean it.
Farewell to all and to all a good day!

@niknoks:

I agree with you.

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:

This is not the only site you have been on making ridiculous claims. Just yesterday, you claimed to have proof that Gerard Butler was straight. I don’t know (and don’t care) if he is straight, gay or bi. But to claim to be close enough to know someone that way is scary. And you didn’t say it in jest. You really want people to believe you “know stuff.” I think the only reason you are backing down know is you know that your crazed rantings have attracted the kind of attention you don’t want. Even though this is a gossip site, your premise that you “know stuff” makes some believe you either know him personally or are a stalking or a hacker. My guess is you are the latter but I can’t prove that right now.

I don’t personally know Gerard Butler or anyone associated with him. My work here is done.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/04/2012 at 12:30 pm

PS, The double “~K” annoys the anal-retentive perfectionist I once was to all get out, but need to say… why lead people to me? Who? What for? Admins from fan sites perhaps? And me a stalker, hacker? Good flippin’ Dove bars, hell no! I can’t figure out how use my Blackberry proper! Actually, it’s the other way around. I’ve been stalked (and hated) for years and for the reasons you state so don’t feel too special or feel like you’re saying something new to the world of Gerry. Again, goodbye. I can lurk, sit on my hands, as good as the rest of them! Manny needs this place far more than I do. And yes, new photos can give this place back to her in a heartbeat… it’s apparently her world, life and where she is something. Kind of f’d up but it is what it is and I’ve caused her to turn to toxic goo, and that’s not a good thing. Bye-bye! :o)

I don’t post on his fan sites just movie boards on IMDb and here. So, again, what other site do make such claims?

Oh, and while were THERE, Gerard Butler is not Gay or a homosexual. Deal with it. He does, why? He isn’t.

“Backing down”? Eh? NO, backing OFF because the woman went nut-zo last night. Melted into some sort of crazed glassy eyed banshie. Another fact. I wasn’t even here!! I don’t want to be responsible for her cracking up. That’s why and the ONLY reason why. Fact. Truth.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/04/2012 at 12:47 pm

Last word, WHAT kind of attention? From who, you? Get over yourself and the Admins lurking! The other sites are dead since I left them. Not vanity, but (and again not vanity, I’m at least interesting!

Also, I can say whatever I want just like anyone else including your self-righteous finger pointing words. Fact: if something (I say) does not pass ‘go’ or is too revealing, disrespectful, Jared can, and will, delete it. He also, sit down this is the truth, has a say in this. Feel better now? Have a nice day.

God Bless yoou all! @ 01/04/2012 at 1:46 pm

Most of you know the battle of the bulge that plagues many of us and why we tend to make New Years resolutions to loose weight. I am one that struggles with this every year. Some of you may share that struggle as well. Here is a little positive help we can focus on……

Power Verses:
Romans 14:17, “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit…” (NIV)

Psalm 18:1, “I love you, O LORD, my strength.”

King James Bible Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
May 2012 be a year of successes for us all.

@Manny:
Yes, so obvious!
Bean is Eve.

@Scary: Sorry but as soon as you mentioned the name “Manny” and how much saner and more normal she is compared to GFW your posts just lost any credibility. You are just another bud of Manny and want to stir up more sh!t around this board.

Between rumor and truth @ 01/04/2012 at 2:17 pm

@Manny:

I just read what happened this morning! She is crazy! She kept posting stuff even after she said she was leaving. How insane!

I think she left not because of you, but because someone challenged her ‘know stuff’ claim. I would not be surprised if someone, somewhere, has a restraining order against her or is getting one. She went off the deep end.

I came here because of a rumor I heard about the fan sites. They are just as crazy and she is not welcome there either? What?!!!!

Thank you for your warm welcome. I feel awful because I feel like I may have started some of K’s rage. I probably won’t hang around but it was nice talking to you.

redOctober @ 01/04/2012 at 2:24 pm

@Manny:

Thanks a lot ! I’m on vacation and not around the house as much but I’ve left a message : )

@Between rumor and truth:

Sorry to 2 rude, but once U thanked Hags Central for her hateful & horrible post, U totally lost all credibility. I have seen this person harass and harass people on this board. I don’t disagree that GFW has many many issues, but 2 thank that hags person? Awful. But not into fighting on this board anymore. Yet I felt the need to get that out. Peace & Love to you.

Honestly......... @ 01/04/2012 at 2:30 pm

I do enjoy this board so much lol
Why do peeps take this place so seriously?
Just have fun with the sane, the crazies, the serious, the thoughtful, the analyzers, the criticizers, the jealous, the ramblers, the liberals, the conservatives, the haters, the lovers, the droolers, and the watchers.

@Honestly………:

It’s not about taking it too seriously per say (how could anyone really?), but there’s no reason 2 be outright hateful IMO.

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:

Just thought I’d contribute here: The organized GB fansites are most definitely very slow these days, but it’s not because of their posting guidelines . Most forum based sites are dying out primarily due to all the social networking sites that are available now. GB’s fanbase is very active on FB and Twitter, which have basically replaced the “Forum.” It’s just so much easier to connect with other fans and get the latest news about Gerry through FB and Twitter.

Swannie

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/04/2012 at 3:34 pm

@SwansongPaisley:
Since you bothered, I’ll respond with this, once upon a time it was about more than getting the latest news of Gerry or his whereabouts. It was about discussing his career, eccentricities, photos, new projects… not just following him like a hound.
-
And frankly, if you want my honest opinion, like me or not, I/this site provide what FB and Twitter do not.
-
@Between rumor and truth:
No one has a restraining order against me. Just the opposite actually. I’m very respected in his circle. I’m astute, insightful, honest, sincere and see him through eyes of truth as said by someone who actually knows him who was here last week. This could have been what set Manny off?
-
Trust me when I say this. And I did not leave because someone challenged my ‘knowing’ anything. It is because Manny wiped out last night because someone, me gets thumbs up. Crazy but it seems that elementary, and childish.
-
When I came in this morning and saw her hidden I realized she had to have had a meltdown (again). I honestly felt sorry for her so decided to lay low. She apparently does not like anyone liking my posts? Weird, but whatever.

who thinks Gerry is back with an adrenaline high meeting up with his co-stars for the London screening tomorrow and is very happy (a speculation both) right about… now :o)

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:

And fans do continue to discuss those things in depth on FB, and on private yahoo groups. Again, the public “Forum” format is losing steam. Slow traffic on the traditional fansites has very little to do with posting restrictions. I have no idea why you took my above post so personally. I was simply pointing out my observations about changes in the internet and how they have effected Gerry’s fansites. I was not commenting on whether or not I liked you as a person.

Hollywood Gossiper @ 01/04/2012 at 3:59 pm

@Between rumor and truth: News flash, most of the people here guessed violin girl was a PR stunt from the get go. Just like Frenchie in Paris after Aniston fingergate. Most of the sane people here “don’t know stuff” as in direct knowledge of the Butler in private life but have got good powers of logic and deduction. One can argue as to the main goal of such PR stunts however. And this gang does.

Which brings me to the fact that Gerry’s PR people don’t strike me as that slick or competent so hard to believe they could pull off a Rock Hudson after all these years. But hey the truth always comes out eventually whatever it may be. Used to think Tiger Woods was such a sweet wholesome even dead boring guy. Oops. Now there’s a PR team. Gerry should give em a call. Tiger was the one that blew it not his PR team. You can only do so much damage control..

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/04/2012 at 4:08 pm

@SwansongPaisley:
Eh? I didn’t take it personally other than it was addressed to me??? You explained, thank you… you also came back which proves my point. Not all formats will curl up and die.
-
Oh okay, they discuss same things there as here? Cool. Don’t see how (effectively) with 7 words or less? It is what it is I guess.
-
I’m not into FB or Twitter. I’ve no time and it’s way TMI for me. I hate acronyms too. I’m FAR too verbose, poetic, opinionated and hate being tracked by complete strangers wishing to be my “friend.”
-
Call me anti-social but I don’t care. My “friends” are real people… not photos on a page. Yet I will admit of my six readers who are RL friends I’ve only met “in person” two, and one I don’t care to. The others intrigue me.
-
Frankly, I shiver at the thought of being tracked by some of my haters at IMDb or here?? Frightening thought, totally. I’ve an account with setting thicker than the Pentagon Wall.
~K

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/04/2012 at 4:12 pm

PS, I was generalizing about the “like me or not” part!

@Hollywood Gossiper

Just out of curiosity. Why do PR stunts that make you look really crass or really fake? Don’t see the point. In actual, fact why do PR stunts about your private life at all? A bit low rent in my opinion.

@Ofcourse: I agree, one of the things that stumps me about the Butler and his “team”. One does sometimes wonder if it is the blind leading the blind or frat boys gone wild.

It is interesting to note that the Butler has been very low key and seemingly well behaved, as far as I have heard, since he started filming his latest film.

Honestly......... @ 01/04/2012 at 5:00 pm

@Katie:
“It’s not about taking it too seriously per say (how could anyone really?), but there’s no reason 2 be outright hateful IMO.”
.
I don’t believe you, as it’s plain to see that you DO take things said on the thread very seriously. It seems Hags pots have knocked you so hard, since you seem so shook up about them. If his/her post meant nothing to you, you wouldn’t even acknowledged them.
.
I don’t take these posts seriously at all, which is why i don’t regard them as hateful. Their one person’s opinion, which they have a right to have, and if you disagree just zoom by them. The moment you call them hateful you show they bother you and Hags has power over you. This is how Hags irritates you, can’t you see that?
.
“Between rumor and truth” has a point when he/she says that Gerard has too many crazy fans. Judging by the posters here, there is no doubt about it. I’m sorry to say, many on this board are not mentally stable.

Just visiting @ 01/04/2012 at 5:01 pm

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:

(clears throat [very lady like of course]) How about: Law Abiding Citizen; Machine Gun Preacher, Coriolanus? All good judgment and not lightweight nor mediocre films or scripts. Do your homework first please! The best is yet to come! Thunder Run is up next… so not lightweight… and like all of his films, owns a message.

I believe I have done my homework and I guess it is a matter of opinion as to whether LAC and MGP had problems with the script and could have been much better films. I also wonder just how much script control Gerry has when he is co-producing his films or if it should be left to the more experienced professionals. I read Frank Darabont’s original script for LAC and IMO it was excellent. Then Gerry and others injected their ‘creative input’ into the script and Darabont disagreed and took a walk. LAC was apparently an audience favourite, but ultimately a resounding critiical failure. I thought the movie was watchable, but also extremely silly in places. I read where they were trying to put together a sequel.

I haven’t seen MGP, but I was disappointed at how the critics savaged the film, almost unanimously criticizing script and editing. I read an interview with Gerry recently where he stated that he ‘worked closely’ constantly with Foster and Keller on the script again for this movie. Food for thought. I also saw where Gerry admitted sometimes coming to loggerheads with Muccino re Playing the Field and about how certain scenes should be played out, but Muccino stuck to his guns and won out in the end. I’m really looking forward to seeing how that turns out.

Thankfully, with Coriolanus, I guess even Gerry would’nt think he could improve much on Shakespeare LOL.

@Hollywood Gossiper:
“It is interesting to note that the Butler has been very low key and seemingly well behaved, as far as I have heard, since he started filming his latest film.”
.
Well, he has been behaving himself since his filming of MGP. It’s been over a year now since he stopped picking up women while filming and I have noticed this change starting as early as late 2010. I think he’s finally maturing.
.
In addition, Mavericks has been very hard on him. lot’s of focus, concentration, and training to learn to surf. He has immersed himself deeply in his training and his part in Mavericks, that there is no time to pick up chix.

I’m countering with Law Abiding Citizen, Machine Gun Preacher and Coriolanus, Of Men and Mavericks, Thunder Run to this , “As somewhat of a fan, It confuses me a little that GB and his people haven’t focused better on his acting career and have used such poor judgment in their choice of so many lightweight or mediocre film scripts, not really giving him much chance to expand on acting talent that I believe is there.
-
Granted a few are not completed, or even filmed, but I feel his shift of focus has indeed, well… shifted.

Bingo! Indeed. And for everything a reason. Mainly, his career. But fact is he might have gotten a good boxing of the ears by people who had to say it afraid offering up some tough love and a helping hand? This is my estimation. And the benefits of wising up are holding. Which means (to me) he likes them.

I was lucky enough to see MGP twice! Once was followed by a Q & A by Sam Childers and the writer Jason Keller. Both were just so passionate about this project. And Gerry’s performance was outstanding. The movie was very very good. The snub this movie got is pathetic and not at all what it deserved!!!! I still don’t get why the critic’s reviews were so bad.

Sweet people like Autumn who doesn’t deserve it at all. But u can think what you will. Thanks 2 all the nice ones. I bid u adieu. There’s a Hugh Jackman movie calling my name. Mwah!

@Calvin,
Thanks for the link! Apparently Gerry checked out the girl’s blog (Monsoon Diaries) when she posted about her fan encounter with him. I shudder to think what must go through his head when he checks out JJ.
.
From Monsoon Diaries:
“Let it be known that Gerard Butler now reads this blog, and I quote from June (left in photo):
.
“It was funny how he mentioned he had read The Monsoon Diaries, because he kept saying how he usually doesn’t look into these things that mention him. I also mentioned your North Korea trip to him, and he seemed interested [in following up]. Maybe you’ll have another famous follower? He also complimented you…something along the lines of you seem to be very confident.”
.
So the Spartan King from 300 who took on Xerxes and his one million Persian soldiers with a battalion of 300 Spartans, just complimented me on my confidence…I think I might work up some of that confidence to make a visit to Scotland and ask him to monsoon with me. Perhaps Gerard could be the next travel partner on my 2nd trip to North Korea?”
http://monsoondiaries.com/2012/01/04/running-into-gerard-butler-a-2nd-time/

@Calvin
Sorry Calvin! I didn’t realize you were the one who wrote the blog article. I thought it was one of the young women in the first photo who wrote the articles on the blog, but now I see you have a whole host of contributors! It still gives me shivers that he checked up on your blog personally. I would think he would have a member of his staff do that sort of thing. God only knows what else he’s been reading!

@Can’tGetEnough:

Can’tGetEnough you rock!
Thanks for posting all the links and photos.

I can see it now, GFW is going to be pushing her p/orn cuz G admitted to reading the other blog. Help us all.

He has an Apple he takes with him everywhere and he check many things online, including the gossip sites, even though he once said he tries not to read what is written about him online. Clearly it’s the opposite. He once checked Patti Smith’s website after he met her at the Berlin Film Festival.
So, I do believe he checks JJ and reads everything here.

LOL he may have been reading my diatribes against the old hags that think they have a chance in marrying him (the ones that think he will adopt their grown kids). He is probably laughing at the craziness that goes on here.

“It is messed up. Hags Central is a put down to women apparently older than her. So she calls people old “hags” because sh SHE might have more of a chance with the object of this board? Dream on. Or that’s my perspective. So she makes fun of everyone else. Wants to shame them.”
.
Really??? Who is the one attacking every woman seen around Gerard? YOU.

Who calls them who/res and tra/mps? YOU.

Who acts jealous of every woman connected to him, real or imaginary? YOU

It’s not me. Just because I shame the old hags or the phannies, doesn’t mean I have an agenda. If I did, I wouldn’t be supportive of the pretty women he dates. I’m actually one of his fans that gets happy for him when there is a penitential woman in his vicinity (not that there has been anyone worthy recently). In contrast, I don’t think it’s realistic to think he will end up marrying an old hag with kids when all the evidence about him show he likes his woman much younger than himself, and he would like to have children with her, as he admitted a few times now. I find it pathetic the old hags still hold on to the hope that one of them will be the lucky one, and put down any young beautiful girl seen in his vicinity. And Yes, I do like to shame them and bring them back into reality.
.
You’re not the only one, so I hate to pick only on you, as most of the posters on JJ behave like that, but you’re actions the other day were totally despicable. Just because you started to receive a few thumbs up all of a sudden, as opposed to getting pummeled by the thumbs as you usually do, doesn’t mean you should turn into a monster and start attacking others. Both “late Gerry” and “TL” didn’t do anything to warrant such attacks from you, and then you even started to fight with Manny and the new person. What’s up with that?

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:
“As long as we live our lives to the fullest, having fun with his image is fine. Discussing his whereabouts, state of health is too. His career even more so! But when it starts to eat away at our living our lives fully, he gets (I think) a bit queasy regarding his fans ‘love’ for him. Trust me, he’s living his life to the fullest and wants us to too!”
.
LOL! You should tell yourself this, not preach it to others.

Are you living your life to the fullest? No, you’re not.
Not when you become belligerent towards his supposed dates, and posters that think he should settle down.
Not, when you claim you know all about him (“I know stuff”), and spend hours on JJ making it obvious your life revolves around him. I think he gets “queasy” with fans like you, as well as all the other jealous old hags. He is probably laughing at you when he reads JJ and the stuff you write about him and his love life.

well i see i picked a fine time to pop in and say hello…..guess i’ll keep going…but i just wanted to say……..

Lolita, darlin you are true and real peach, thank you for your kind prayers and thoughts…and to all of you who support the troops with your well wishes, it was and always will be appreciated

the boys are home, safe and sound…….and i am a happy mother hen again

OFFS, craigy, flotsam and i wish all the fine ladies of jj-butlerdom a wonderful and peaceful 2012!

happy gerry nude year… ;)

Hags Central @ 01/05/2012 at 3:31 am

That’s old news. Besides, what’s so shocking about that?
In addition, none of what she claims in her “article” is actually true. Most of it is her imagination or a hearsay.
.
She is just another hag, jealous she’ll never have Gerard while she is married to a guy she settled for because no hot actor ever wanted to go out with her. That’s why she criticizes every actress and hates every actor. Please……the woman is a waste of time.

Just Embarrassing Women Here.. @ 01/05/2012 at 4:17 am

@Ex-fan:
You are pathetic like the other phannies on this site.

Gerard looks like sh*t deep-fried in sh*t.
Sorry to be the one to tell ya.

does he have a machine gun in his pants anyone know?

angelsrock @ 01/05/2012 at 6:08 am

@redOctober:

This is a great picture, thanks RedO. I have a friend who lives in Germany and saw the film there. I believe this scene opens the movie. It is of Gerry sharpening/polishing his knife.

angelsrock @ 01/05/2012 at 6:10 am

@Joie de Vivre:

I’m just sure she is going to have a flirt-fest with Gerry. I’m really looking forward to this show.

@Hags Central: You are clearly a sociopath who appears to be desperately delusional about YOUR chances to obtain a ring and a commitment from Gerard Butler. Your hatred has eliminated you from the competition. He would never be with someone as evil as you are.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/05/2012 at 9:43 am

Feel Hags Central is Freudian slip, and she’s the hag, verbally, mentally but psychically too as one always accuses others of what they are, ;o) but she is an ex IMDb poster whose come to where the action is. Anyone else agree? Reads all too familiar.
-
Oh, and now she knows stuff?? Did you notice all she ‘knows’? I did.

@You Lose:
Well said, and so true.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/05/2012 at 9:58 am

@redOctober:
Love that focus. Totally in character.
-
Gerry had to fight his way into where he is by virtue of his talent. Do well, or forget it is his motto.
-
Feel this might be a staggering performance, one that lifts his career.
-
Always fighting, nothing’s come easy… not really. It’s all had its price and consequences. Feel he thanks God for giving him the chance, which he has been waiting for and deserves. May God always protect him from any danger he may face. I want to thank him for good honest work.
~K, said by someone who not an old hag who can write as wishes here (and her erotica too) but won’t place the URLs here like I did before for the likes of Ms. Bitter Never Stands A Chance Ever One to read or she’d wipe out totally… who really feels you’re threatened by me and you scare the crap out of me so this will be my last post who has a place to talk about Gerry where it actually makes a difference, so put that in your crack pipe and smoke it who has purpose driven connection

angelsrock @ 01/05/2012 at 10:06 am

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:

Yes, I agree. I thought the same thing. I took a gander at IMdb other day; no change. Same posters; same types of posts. Always harsh and demeaning towards Butler and his fans.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/05/2012 at 10:30 am

@angelsrock:
They come here as well and think this one decided to “shame” us into her truth while she speaks out of both sides of her ugly mouth. Hey, not that I can’t get (gulp) tart. ;o) Fact is it is way dead over there, and not here!
-
He walks on glass and gets cut. He walks on fire and gets burned. She’s shaped and molded his career doing it his way. Needs to put that to paper, get it published. He has an amazing skills with words.
-
Him reading here, him? He’s better things to do with his time. But feel it is monitored (especially after what I’ll call The Brooke Period)–and trust me, I’m harmless. That is another reason he flies under the radar more now, keeps his lips sealed and is more careful what he tells his ‘friends’. And I don’t blame him… but F.E.A.R. (for everything a reason).
-
The man spends half his life in transit! Talk about having your head in the clouds! LOL Kidding.
-
I’d like to see him at the Golden Globes for certain. Any show he wishes to attend. It’s all good. Needs to be seen for to keep his goals. I want what he wants.
-
I’m close by focus without a doubt. If I think it, then it’s true. ;o)
~K
who can’t wait for photos to come in wonderin’ if his mom will be there?

redOctober @ 01/05/2012 at 10:44 am

@angelsrock:

Lucky ones in Germany. There’s not a chance they’re showing it here any time soon.

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:

I like those photos where Gerry looks serious or thoughtful.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/05/2012 at 11:02 am

@redOctober:
That’s He’s shaped and molded his career! LOL
-
Yes, I do too. Reason being is I sense it’s far more the real him than his happy-go-lucky goof-ball class-clown act/mask. I’ll admit he rings a lot of bells, mine as well. But truth be told without a benefit, or purpose driven connection, I don’t think I’d be online, or at the blog with my on-going story, for as long as I am for as long as I have just following an handsome man’s career. What’s that benefit? Why does anyone follow him? He seems to have separated from fan sites where he was once rumored to read. He doesn’t, that I am aware of, Tweet or post on FB.
-
Fan attraction is a curious thing. What drew us in? What keeps us? What your (universal usage) benefit?
~K

redOctober @ 01/05/2012 at 11:25 am

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:

I feel more at ease among thoughtful and serious people , that’s why. No idea how his real self is but it doesn’t prevent me from enjoying his good movies and photos. I really respect he keeps his private life, private. I wouldn’t let anybody pry into mine.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/05/2012 at 11:45 am

I’ve no idea how his real self is but sense he’s moody with extreme highs and lows that are not nearly as low as at one time–and this can cause him a tad bit hard to be with a lot. Feel he’s horribly misunderstood too.
-
Exactly, he’s had to learn that the hard way. As for the stuff mentioned above, learn to treat the causes of his problems not the surface of things with more intensive care.
-
Seems to have found a craving to transform himself, his life. Got inspired him by example of what he could have (too) if he set about redirecting his energies inward not outward where they were not being effective/affective.
~K
who thinks its fun to talk about Gerry… but has to get back to work as I’ve a deadline

Hags Central @ 01/05/2012 at 12:16 pm

@GerrysFascinatingWoman:

“While I’m not a big supporter of using a fantasy while married, if that’s what works… and we all know women need to be happy to keep their men happy, so be it.
.
Oh Really??? What a fuucking liar you are. When I was defending you, you were agreeing with me that happily married women don’t need to fantasize about other guys, as they have hot sex lives with their own men. Now that I have criticized you, all of a sudden you don’t agree with my argument any longer, which you have been too happy to embrace before. Hypocrite!!!
.
The reason i criticized you is because you’re doing exactly what i have been criticizing others for doing on this board. Ever since we found out Gerry was partying in Morocco, you have put down and attacked every poster that has expressed a wish for Gerry to settle down with someone special in his life. You attacked both “Late Gerry” and “TL” for no reason, constantly putting both of them down, negging them, and criticized them just because they both thought the women in Morocco with Gerry were pretty (which they were), and expressed a little wish for Gerry to finally settle down. What is so bad about that? Since you attacked them and started with your diatribes against these posters, ranting and raving how Gerry doesn’t need to get married or whatever, it is obvious that you are one of those crazy women that lose all control at the thought of Gerry with a female. I thought you weren’t like that at first. I was mistaken.
.
If your behavior since Sunday doesn’t show you to be a jealous bitter woman, a sour puzz, what does? You’re just like the married old hags who secretly wish they were married to Gerry instead of their boring old husbands, fantasizing about Gerard while being beetchy to their men. Or, you’re like his old-hag phannies that fly off the deep end the moment they see Gerry around an attractive female. Those crazy women literary go mad and start coming up with wacky theory upon theory why Gerry isn’t, wouldn’t, shouldn’t, couldn’t be interested in the lady in question, who is often quite beautiful, while they are nothing to look at, and can never measure up.

That’s why I started to attack you too. Your behavior was disgusting. Whoever posted, “Gerard is not your husband stop acting like he is” was right on the money.

GerrysFascinatingWoman @ 01/05/2012 at 12:52 pm

@Hags Central:
You’ve popped your lid, woman. And are paying me way too much attention and it is extremely disconcerting. Are you okay? Talk about scary. Talk about focused murmuring rage amid at some sort of dagger drawn debate? Flippin’ otters in August you better calm down or you’ll blow a gasket.

Problem for why all your crap and nonsense or ‘proof’ is so off kilter is because haven’t been reading me here long enough or you wouldn’t say half of what you just did. I suspect since IMDB is SO dead (because you have driven everyone away) you’ve decided to park here and have trained your furry on me and take your neurotic shots at me so (because you believe Gerry’s reading here) and make me act out so he “sees the real me”? LOL (grabs gut from laughing so hard) LOL
-
Oh, and I can have a change of heart any f’n time I wish, get it? Now get off my back. You’re trippin’ me out as your vibe is coming on as way too aggressive and are in this too deep for a sane “happy he finds someone” woman (you claim to be)! No, you read one word: jealous. Be it, you should.
