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.

Not a great review of gb doing Shakespeare from the Scots.

And so it continues:

Btw I asked Gerard Butler what award he was presenting and he seemed to think Best Supporting Actor

MoiraFraser70 MoiraFraser70
Got great pics of Gerard Butler at @goldenglobes rehearsals will post tmrw. All the ladies were Butlerised lol

MoiraFraser70 MoiraFraser70
All hotel guests @beverlyhilton waiting on @goldenglobes rehearsals all agreed Gerard Butler was the best celeb of the day.

@Intrusive:
That’s her life now. Tweeting away! Keeping HER fan club in the know.
He is her everything. Her reason for existing. Award shows make her more famous too!
-
My question is how many movies has he seen of this group? Would he hold any knowledge of the work he’s handing the award over for? I would hope so! LOL Would hope, for his category at least, he’s is given access to see them someplace? But then again, where’s the time for that with the pre parties, rehearsing, meals, phone calls and all he does on routine during is day??
~K
still surprised his Leno appearance didn’t award him a new thread but think he’ll get one soon enough

@Truth:

I second that, Truth. CGE is so good to us!

@Can’tGetEnough:
That’s glitzy.

I have this saying that I call the networking as ‘smart parties’ and this looks like one. And I feel they’re far more stressful than anyone can imagine. All that smiling. All those repreat sentences, real or not. Having to be in a packed room of famous people being judged at every turn. A camera scanning constantly or being in your face at any given moment? Eek!
-
Saw Carnange this weekend so now we have a new way to use smart parties for smart fights. LOL
~K
who thinks it’ll be nice to see Gerry in a tux again wondering if it’ll be bow-tie or regular, slim-fit or more comfortable?

Gottagetalife @ 01/15/2012 at 8:00 am

Gerry will be presenting Best Supporting Actor award along with Mila Kunis. This should be a real test for him, to see if he can resist her, as she seems to be another maneater out there, and will probably be all over him like white on rice. This will be a sight to see. She is right up his alley, in all directions.

I hope Ricky doesn’t make fun of Gerry’s accident. But then putting it here it might get read and he will? Eek!

Good Morning JJer’s! The GB fan sites have not found any pics of GB at the Art of Elysium event last night. I searched and couldn’t find any as well. JJ does have a few threads out with some who did attend, but no Gerry. So I guess we can assume he didn’t attend, unless we get lucky with pictures later on. Highly unlikely he was there though and didn’t get photographed. Oh well. We’ll get the Golden Globe pics later and hopefully a new thread to go with it.

Off to Long Island today! NOT a fun drive, but family duty calls! Have a great day friends!

@angelsrock: Thank you Angel! =)

@GFW:

I don’t think Ricky Gervais needs to go on gossip sites for material and I think it’s better to have him make fun of GB than him to think he’s not worth bothering about…..

Maybe something did happen she went to the rehearsal as well cupcake..

@niknoks:
It was in jest, trust me. ;o) If NOAA knows and USFWS does, Ricky knows! LOL Just hope he does not sink to the street to make fun of it. THAT was my point!
~K
who thinks with Mila he’ll be nervous as hell and maybe extra goofy? We’ll have to wait and see but think he’s enjoying rehearsing and might take that out a bit further for more than necessary? *giggles*

Joie de Vivre @ 01/15/2012 at 9:09 am

@angelsrock: Good Luck to your Ravens today. My team has barely performed in a decade, but I can’t jump ship….WON’T jump ship.

@Can’tGetEnough: Safe travels, paisana!

Have a lovely day everyone!!! XXO

@bystander:
LOL Gerry manages not to bump into the furniture? That’s crazy funny. Is that a compliment? I think so. It might be hidden but it might be the best some can do. I really feel some have it out for him, are jealous of his achievements. His doin’ it his way. Coming full circle with Coriolanus is a big deal. Word is his 20-minutes, make that 15 speaking, is excellent! Ralph knew what he was doing same like Vadim Jean did with One More Kiss.

@Gottagetalife: He is not Jewish. Mila will have him for lunch a spit him out. Just the way he likes it.

Scotsman review @ 01/15/2012 at 11:42 am

@bystander: “…he’s barely more than a snarl in search of personality.”
This made me laugh. Correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems to me that the Scots are particularly hard on their own, at least in the press.

@Can’tGetEnough:
.
I see he is still in the kids’ seats away from the grownups. Snagging a seat by Sarah Michelle Geller, oh boy. At least he is close enough that Angelina, Brad and Clooney can throw him the jelly beans that aren’t their favorites and Fassie can wave. hahaha Good luck with the networking Great Scot and tipping my glass in hopes you make it to the adult seats next year. :)
.
@Intrusive:
.
I don’t think Moira is as in love with Butler as she is in love with the concept of being his number one fan and appearing to be part of his inner circle. Both are pathetic IMO…
.
@niknoks:
.
If Ricky ignores him that would be a bigger slap than any joke thrown Butler’s way. Silence is the bigger snub.
.
@Can’tGetEnough:
.
You are indeed as sweet as Cora and I appreciate your time and efforts. I miss Cora. The two of you together would be an unstoppable source of info and would put the fansites to shame with your ability to bring the news forth. Many many thanks. :)
.
===========
.
@GFW:
.
I guess tweeting about one’s experiences and being out there doing something with her life is not comparable to staying on your ass behind a computer writing Gerry p*rn day in and day out and blogging about it… gee is there a difference???
.
You shouldn’t throw stones at glass houses GFW… Moira maybe a nutter but you are just a nutter of lazier brand IMO.
.
@Scotsman review:
.
I was thinking the same thing. I did laugh at his description of Ralph as “bullet headed.” Seems the reviewer was not going to give anyone a pass in his review. :)

@Can’tGetEnough:
.
They did crown a new Miss America in Las Vegas… gee I wonder where Gerry might have been……..

@Manny: Grrrrrrrr.
OK Snarky. Also at table 104 is Harvey Weinstein. I think he’s ranked as a grown up.

@aqua:
.
Weinstein is in the lower level. I checked twice because I got all excited that he might be sitting with Weinstein. Take a closer look…

Weinstein is at table 7.

@aqua:
.
For you my blind little minx… click on the picture once and it will blow it up and you can see… http://cdn.goldenglobes.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/L1111174.jpg

Definitely another table in that photo. I was thinking about Brad and Angelina looking down at him. Too bad he can’t flip that smug group off in public. LOL.

@aqua:
.
Yeah what a good PR move to flip off the people being awarded for good work that you might possibly want to work with in the future…
.
Nothing smug about people who make good films and are recognized for it. Butler needs to step up his game to run with the award-winning crowd. Fassie did it and I believe Butler can too. Problem is Butler picks the crap he makes… maybe he should let Fassie pick his next couple of projects because Fassie is in the adult seats and not languishing in the cheap seats…
