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.

    Or it could be…nothing. He just happened to look down at the floor at a bug or something. We read too much into everything he does, face it, analyzers.

    What the bl**dy he** is going on here. In 4 pages this thread degenerated into a discussion of what seems to be Acts of P*rn, when the pix of GB show him doing nothing but wearing a cap and looking down at…who knows what? Every time he appears without a smile on his face people wonder what’s wrong in his life.

    I have no idea what The Box is or what they do there, but getting the idea. In my youth (college age and soon after) when I liked to Explore the Fringes and Walk on the Wild Side a little, I saw some places. I was even a backup dancer in a club in Paris, wearing not much but definitely a push-up bra stuffed with socks so we looked more stacked than we were. I had applied for jobs with the BIG clubs, like the Lido and Follies Bergere but was turned down (too short, Lido, not a French citizen, illegal, Follies.)
    I saw some of those shows and in some the statuesque model types danced in nothing but a pair of spike heels. I recall one show in which an equally well dressed man sported an artificial…ahem…2 feet or so long and ran around pretending to…ahem… the mares. People laughed themselves silly. I also recall seeing either real or simulated…ahem…in Manila. /and even in Honolulu. Matronly, prim looking ladies left the theater smiling.
    My honky tonk dancing in skimpy satin and velvet and feathers was sedate in comparison. :)
    I don’t care what people do for fun as long as nobody gets hurt. But is all this the result of too much repression?

    “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. ”
    .
    It’s quite the norm for reporters and journalists to be on the sly, listening on private phone conversations in the UK. It’s not just reserved to the Daily Mail or to conservatives. It’s done on both sides of the aisle.

    Remember how many scandals involved Diana and phone hacking? There were always accusations against someone on her stuff hacking her private phone conversations. It’s common place in the UK. In America it’s less accepted and lead to many a prosecutions.

    BTW, Pierce Morgan is also involved in the phone hacking and he’s by no means a conservative.

    Just watched the Graham Norton show with Butler and the rest. The funniest line to me was when Butler told Noel Gallagher, after Norton pointed out that he sang it at his birthday party, that Wonderwall is his song and Noel replied without missing a beat or changing expression, “No, no I think it’s MY song.”. HAHAHA! Classic! All four were excellent! Frammie got too much air time. The dog was a pairrfect touch. Take care all of you and be safe and happy. XXO

    @wtf?:
    @Manny:
    I have the same opinions as both of you. Furthermore, I resent being called sexually repressed because I assign a higher value to my sexuality. Some of us have higher standards than the rest of the riffraff that go to these places, and I’m not ashamed of saying it. I don’t think it makes me racist either.
    .
    That being said, we don’t know the whole story of why he was there. He looks disappointed for whatever reason. Maybe some buddies of his asked him to meet them there and after awhile he just got up and left???

    It’s just not like him to have such a look on his face. He looks either tired or bored, and he looks like he wasn’t into being there.
    .
    Whatever it is, i don’t think he was hiding his face from the paps.
    This pic looks like he just had something in his eye, not as if he is covering his face. http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2615181/gerard-butler-box-nightclub-02/

    To me he looked bored, tired, and not amused. Probably wanted to get home and rest. For all we know, maybe these places don’t hold the same fascination for him anymore.

    @Sharon:
    LOL, I meant staff, not stuff
    There were always accusations against someone on her staff hacking her private phone conversations.. Diana that is.

    @Sharon:

    I never said phone hacking and lying was limited to conservative newspapers, I was talking specifically about the Daily Mail.
    -
    While Piers Morgan is not a conservative, when he ‘allegedly’ got up to illegal antics he was working for the NotW, owned by Rupert Murdoch.

    Sharon Says:

    @niknoks:
    LOL, Murdoch is not the only one with these tactics in the UK. This kind of stuff happens every other day in the UK. It just depends on who is accusing, and who is the accused, in any given time. Right now, is the left accusing the right in their hypocrisy, while they do the same thing, of course.

    niknoks Says:

    @Sharon:

    Again, never said it was limited to Murdoch or conservatives or the UK for that matter….. trying to put words in my mouth is pretty pointless when everyone can read what I’ve written, same with you bleating about being called a racist, nobody has called you a racist.

    Maybe your post has been deleted because I can’t find it. To the poster who said GB looked uncomfortable and his demeanor changed after he mentioned he and Ralph having a homoerotic scene, it doesn’t appear to me that way. He appeared a bit tired, restless, and somewhat bored out of his mind from the beginning of the show. Probably, he was anxious to have the show end already. I don’t think he liked having to sit there and listen to 3 other guests tell their stories, while he could be doing “other things.” We know his patience wear thin, and he is a very restless dude. He needs to have one whole segment devoted just to him in order to be fully engaged, and not appear bored, tired, or restless. Once his segment ends, he leaves and goes about his business. I think that’s the best talk-show scenario for him
    .
    Look at around point 33.34 in the video,
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zmh7dV3xTc ,
    he starts staring into space, then he nervously starts picking his cuticles, then he catches himself and he stops. I also noticed him once or twice just about to yawn, but he stops himself again. Also, throughout the show you can catch him staring into space a number of times when he is not talking with Graham, coming back alive only with the joke he cracked about the Arab Stallion, and of course that was also the end of the show so no wonder he was “waking up” for that.

    It’s possible he didn’t have enough time to sleep after he returned from Morocco, but either way, this man likes to run on empty, and he is also a very restless dude.

    Well you can call me a prude all day , but I would rather know someone before they can spray their bodily fluids in my direction. I’m funny that way. Whatever you label the show, it sounds like something I will pass on. And it is not because I’m an American or racist, but because I don’t find it entertaining to watch exploitation. Which is exactly what it is. People are paying to see oddities just like the old circuses.
