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.

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.

    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.

    @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

    @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

    @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.

  • niknoks

    @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

    @angelsrock:
    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)

  • GerrysFascinatingWoman

    @niknoks:
    He spends half his life in transit. Maybe the jumping beans will get jumping in his pants again? (blushing) Like you say, we can count on Tweets. Good Lord, what has the world come to? 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)

  • angelsrock

    @GerrysFascinatingWoman:

    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

    @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?

    Who thinks Gerry might know a lot of people but really just have a very close knit set of friends he hangs out with where he can be totally himself and might these people be home in Scotland?

    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?

    Well, despite the name calling, which isn’t necessary, and blaming for doing something they most likely do themselves, which isn’t necessary, this person has a point. He did turn down the Royal wedding. As for the other stuff? I’m not privy to his personal invites or schedule. I’m sure he’s invited to lot of things being famous and all. Any way, I know stuff [read: not really] but nothing of any worth in tracking him! :o(

    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. :-(

    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. Enjoy PSILY – one of my favs is Timeline where he plays Marek (must be the curly hair :)) and RocknRolla is another; Dear Frankie is my favorite. MGP was great too! Oh heck – I must be honest I kind of like them all except TBH – no chemistry.

    The Burns biopic would be wonderful! He needs a good period piece with a great script. Here’s hoping that Coriolanus will be a huge hit – can’t wait for the opening!

    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

    Damn that was fast. No one here personally knows Gerard Butler, so please…..spare us.

    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

    @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.

  • Autumn

    @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!
