Gerard Butler: Surfing Accident Was A 'Close Call'

Gerard Butler: Surfing Accident Was A 'Close Call'

Gerard Butler ducks out of The Box nightclub on Friday (January 6) in London, England.

The night before, the 42-year-old Scottish actor attended a special screening of his new movie Coriolanus.

Gerard also recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show where he talked about his scary surfing accident while filming his other movie, Of Men and Mavericks, in Northern California.

“[The waves] just took me in, and I couldn’t get up. It was pretty hairy. It was maybe of of the few times that reports were not exaggerated. It was a pretty close call,” he shared.

“I was actually in the ambulance and wanted to go back, which was a little crazy. But [surfing is] pretty addictive,” Gerry added.

FYI: Gerard is wearing Joe’s Classic Fit with Rogue‘s leather biker jacket.

@Moi:
.
So you are saying the reporter lied about the content. Or maybe you haven’t been part of the elite crowd that gets the raunchier show. They did say there are two very different areas as to clientele and content.
.
I like to think I’m not a prude and oh the stories I could tell about what we have extracted, out of places those objects should never have been inserted, at the hospital… but I don’t see how watching people performing sex acts makes for a frolicking good time… And I agree with the poster above that said “demeaning to the participants.” Can’t imagine making a living debasing myself that way… but again, I’m just a provincial American nurse… with self-esteem.
.
BTW I’m perfectly calm. If that’s entertainment to you, more power two ya. Just don’t worry about saving me a seat. It’s just not my cup of … vodka…

chicken little….manny …niknoks….moi…sharon….kat…. et al.,

i am not racist or homophobic or amoral…have to confess i had to look up xenophobe, not that either……

i like to think i am pretty free thinking….but i think some things are best left BEHIND the bedroom doors….

as a fan, his appearance here, even on a mild night and recognizing that he is a single, fully testosteroned man on the prowl….

still make me feel a lil less enamoured with him … :(…

thumb me for being honest if you like

i respect and understand your opinions though but this time i’m with manny

@Manny:

No need to get offended. I was in VIP both times. Same shows, just a better spot to see them. Hey, to each their own. I’m not saying anyone lied, just that I’ve never seen that take place. I do think it’s interesting that you can have a certainty of opinion when you’ve never been there. But not going to argue, everyone definitely has a right to their opinion. I’m off! Have a great evening.

manny looks like i’m heading for a disappearing post…hahahaha

because i don’t approve of the Box?..wtf? indeed

just want to say to my fans tonight if i’m a prude because of my comments and feelings than i’m proud of it……otta here…but i find the debate interesting…..

@Moi:
.
Not offended. I have my opinion and you have yours. Not condemning what you enjoy either. I just can’t or maybe won’t wrap my head around that as entertainment.
.
As for certainty of opinion, I read what I read and you shared nothing to change my way of thinking. I’m a big girl. I’ll own my opinion. :)
.
Have a safe fun evening.
.
@wtf?:
.
I understand that it is different strokes for different folks. I’m just not going to join in with the “in crowd” on this one I guess. Prude table for two. Want to join me wtf?

@Manny:

I wouldn’t put it past the Daily Mail to lie, they have done before and had to make numerous apologies for it and they are currently being investigated as part of the phone hacking scandal over here. They are well known for their hysterical rants, some of them are quite amusing, some just down right offensive. If the shows were that horrific there is no way the Royals would be ‘allowed’ to set foot in there, the powers that be would put a stop to it….
-
@wtf?:

It’s cool if it’s not your thing, the point I was trying to make, maybe somewhat clumsily, is that the Daily Mail is not the best place to get information on a night club, particularly one that is a bit raunchy, as the Daily Mail seems to find sex that isn’t marital, straight, missionary or for child bearing purposes, abhorrent.
-
What I object to most is people saying that anyone that goes should be embarrassed or ashamed, just because something is not their cup of tea, it doesn’t make it embarrassing or shameful.

Good evening, nice
were a girl more
after five minutes
and you were someone special
without speaking, without touching
something inside ignited
in your eyes it was getting late
and I forgot the clock
These days with you
who really taught me
no time given
to begin to love
I feel something so deep
unexplained
there is no reason or logic in my heart
(chorus)
come into my life
I open the door
in your arms is no longer empty nights
come into my life
I will pray
I began by surprise
but then I started to need
Good evening, nice
There is no one else
after this time together
I can not go back
You spoke to me, touched me
and you became my dream
want you to be mistress of my heart
(chorus)
Enter my hours
save me now
open your arms
strong
and let me in.
………………………AMOR…..AMOR….AMOR……..I LOVE YOU……Adios…

@Manny:

I wasn’t trying to change your mind in any way.

&&&

Niknoks: I really like your posts.

&&&&

Ok, really off now. :)

@niknoks:
.
Thanks for the update on the Mail. I wish I had your faith in the Royals that you do. Since Harry’s Nazi costume fiasco I have questioned his judgment and came to believe that the Palace didn’t have quite as tight of rein on him as one would think.
.
As for saying someone should be ashamed or embarrassed… Maybe I should rephrase my comment to say, if it was me, I would hang my head in embarrassment and be ashamed if there was even the slightest change my mother knew I frequented that kind of place? I felt that same way when Butler spent time at Voyeur in LA and stayed for afterhours with that stripper. It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but hopefully not his. :)))
.
BTW hubby just was on a case where they worked with the local K-9 unit there in Nevada. He said it was quite a wonder to watch those teams work. He garnered a lot of respect for how intuitively the dogs and handlers worked together. I was glad he had that kind of assistance for this particular case. Wish your Mister and Maggie the best for me. And always, hugs to you. :)

Sort of off topic… been sketching a little lately and been looking at a lot of work by others online and found these and thought you all might enjoy them. It is fascinating to me how some have a talent that can turn a simple piece of paper into something so alive. Enjoy…

@Manny:

It’s not that I have particular faith in the Royals, I’m a bit of a Republican in that sense (and that sense only ;-p), but the young Royals have had the reins pulled pretty tight of late (clubbing is not an issue but ‘sex clubs’, as the Daily Mail would have us believe, definitely not), partly because of Harry’s antics in the past (I thought the Nazi costume was ill-advised but also blown way out of proportion). I do love Harry though, he is my favourite Royal.

@Manny:

” oh the stories I could tell about what we have extracted, out of places those objects should never have been inserted, at the hospital…”

omg, poor you, lol

@niknoks:
.
I think Harry is so fun to watch. I absolutely loved him at the Royal Wedding whispering to William as Kate walked up the aisle.
.
I saw a wonderful interview with the Princes here on American TV where they talked about what each other is like and their charities. If I hadn’t already thought they were just adorable I would have fallen for them all over again. Diana would be proud IMO as they were so approachable (something I believe she brought to the House of Windsor) and cheeky. They both had great wit and I was actually disappointed when the interview was over.
.
Kate is fast becoming my favorite. Fresh face to the Royals and she is lovely. I love watching her.

@Manny: @Manny:

I would have never had u pegged as such a prude. Disappointed. I also believe u do have a serious thing 4 Mr. Butler.

@ha ha:
.
It is amazing what people try to do and shouldn’t and they end up in the ER with the weirdest stories of how they got there or hurt themselves.
.
If we put out on the counter the things we have removed like they do at tire stores with all the things that cause flats, oh Lordy…

@Manny:

that is funny in the most perverse way……

Joie de Vivre @ 01/07/2012 at 9:56 pm

It is hard to accept that anything shocks Butler. His crusades of the sexual sort have undoubtedly allowed him a peek behind many a curtain. Hey, if The Box had live music accompanying the shows, and I was invited to VIP, I would have to pause a moment and consider….LOL! It’s nothing new. Graham Norton about to come on BBC America here. Night all! Be safe and kind! XXO

@Honestly:
.
I have a thing for Butler as you do otherwise we wouldn’t be here. He is a handsome lug and definitely unpredictable in his behavior. Kind of fun to watch IMO. As for serious… nope. Haven’t even seen MGP and it was in my area for a week. If I was a die-hard I would have been front and center for at least one showing.
.
If being a prude means the thought of watching someone mast*rbate in front of a bunch of people for their entertainment is sad and demeaning, call me a prude. I am who I am.

Glad your ok Gerry…

For some reason my posts are completely dispearing like magic, I wonder who the magician could be, I suppose I’m really not allowed to be posting here in the first place. I feel GB has many mixed emotions going on, lots of high and lows. Does he in fact have a private hellicopter? I wouldn’t doubt it, closest thing he will ever have to being superman. Dear Cholita, I’ve been sending messages to u, but they are dispearing, I send much love and light. Go for it Butler, make your mark and fame, good luck with biding time. Take good care, Please leave my posts alone. From high in the mountains @ my retreat, love dargabriel aka archeia hope, forever.

blah blah blah blah blah blah, Sincerely Gus (who is snoozing in our bed???) not really

@Manny:

It’s that you seem 2 try too hard to hide your fascination. Like u r disgusted with him, yet u are here 4 years. Yep, years. I get it now, u could say. So Intriguing 2 me now.

If u want to believe the Daily Mail, that’s ur purgative, yet stop acting like some sort of saint. It’s weird.

@Honestly:
.
What’s my laxative? Oh did you mean prerogative?
.
BTW that is funny, Butler is my laxative… ROTF…

The Noise In The Walls @ 01/07/2012 at 10:15 pm

Glad you are okay Gerry…Sometimes an incident like that makes us stop and..think…Be well..be happy…be in good company..xx

@Manny:

Yes my auto-correct led me astray. U win. Wow. Pls go attend to your husband.
