Gerard Butler - Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Gerard Butler flashes a smile at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party held at Sunset Tower on Sunday (February 26) in West Hollywood, Calif.

Gerard recently successfully completed a rehab treatment program for issues with prescription drug abuse. His rep issued a statement that he “returned home in good health.”

FYI: Gerry is wearing $10,000 of gold and diamond cufflinks by David Webb.

    Can we send Gerard’s always too tight pants to tailoring rehab?

  • Hi,oy

    @oy: …and immediately. :)

  • Just an observation

    His face looks a bit…tighter.

  • LOOKING

    GORGEOUS !!
    Stay healthy Gerry, your looking great !

  • krista

    Is it just me or does Gerry have a brand new spray tan?
    New hair dye, spray tan … He’s been spending more time prettying himself up for parties than he has on his sobriety.

  • Jasmine

    He looks great! :)

  • me
  • Kristy Lee

    He looks gorgeous – absolutely stunning!

  • @me

    @me:
    I think he had a brow lift as well. His eyes look more “open”.

    Gotta love it. If Gerry’s working himself into the ground and looks tired everyone carps about how old, worn out etc etc he looks. If he’s looking great everybody carps that he must have had work done or there’s something wrong with his hair or clothes. No offense, but it would seem that the man can’t win either way. Damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.

    i think he looks great – youthful and refreshed – not skinny and not botoxed.
    i don’t know how you can tell from a picture he is botoxed. Just like i don’t know how people can see from a picture a drastic weight loss. It’s crazy. It’s more imaginary than real.
    .
    we need video; we need the person to move around and make facial expressions before we can be sure. it’s impossible to tell from a still photo.

  • Info

    @Paisley:
    I can’t agree more.
    it’s all imagination in their head, nothing more, as you can’t tell much from still photos. Sometimes a perosn just poses wrong, or has a split- second expression on, which can mislead us into thinking he had work down. Honestly, it’s really silly.

  • good grief

    @Paisley:
    Gotta love it. On the fan sites, no matter how far into the gutter Gerry stoops you still think he sh,its rainbows. He wins if he does and he wins if he doesn’t. You kiss his a,ss and send him “unconditional love” no matter what he does. At least on JJ we don’t have blinders on. Fans like you are ENABLERS. You are his worst enemy right now and you don’t even know it.

  • Info

    OK, here you can see him in photo after photo and he looks normal. The only things diffrent about him is he had his hair colored to got rid of the gary (which makes him look much younger), he got it cut a little shorter, and he had his beard trimmed. I don’t see any injections on his face. some of the pictures are a little dark so they don’t put him in the best light, but that doesn’t mean he’s botoxed.

  • @ good grief

    @good grief:
    If I could I would give you ten thumbs up. Very well said :)

  • krista

    Yep, botox. Not a single line on his 42 year-old forehead AND he’s got botox vein.

  • Please

    @good grief:
    Let’s be honest; you’d fu/ck him in a second if he wanted you. But alas, you know you don’t have a chance with him so you’re ripping him OUT OF BITTERNESS. He wouldn’t touch an old cow like you and you know it.

  • bystander

    I agree, he looks too artificial to me, in both his appearance and that put on grin.
    I was wondering how gals and especially Moira was dealing with this? I followed Moira, and I believe Terez, out of Norton and found their take on him at odds with mine. They were gushing how wonderful , but I found him a bit lacklustre, although I’d never seen him before and so had no comparison. They edited a lot of him out.
    I’m curious if Moira had seen any gradual change over the years, months, or any red flag incidents? She’s observed him more closely than most.
    Interesting that someone mentioned gals has a blind spot on this. With WO struggling to raise many messages of support could it be an indication that his fan base is waning, apart from a few due hardship?

  • ..

    Another vote supporting the suggestion that he has had cosmetic work done.

    I don’t think he has any intention of changing the lifestyle, with clubbing, partying and promiscuity, but just getting a grip on the over-the-top episodes that caused the facade to slip a bit on occasion recently.

    I’m not usually a conspiracy theorist but I do wonder if someone had evidence of his excesses and the rehab admission was a way to render it valueless.

    * die hard fans! Predictive text and a miniscule phone, doh.

    @bystander: I found your observations of the Graham Norton taping very objective and balanced. It is a bit sad to find oneself disillusioned but I feel that obssesive fandom would be a worse fate.

    @..:
    What were bystander’s observations? I don’t think I read that thread.

    @orange cutie: I am suret that Bystander can fill you but I recall her account said that he looked restless when others spoke, appeared a bit distant as if he didn’t want to be there and many of his stories didn’t come out very well. I won’t say more in case she wants to clarify.

    @bystander: I just want to say that I read your “great well” message and I really liked the Oscar Wilde quote. Yours was one of the only posts that wasn’t heavily steeped in denial. It was nicely done.

  • http://paisley3691.livejournal.com Paisley

    Gerry’s fans support him whether he’s up or down because he’s a fallible human being just like the rest of us. We don’t turn on him and rip him to shreds when he stumbles because we ALL (well, most of us at any rate) stumble from time to time. It’s part of the human condition and he grapples with the same issues and problems that many of us do. We recognize his weaknesses and offer words of support and a little gentle chastisement instead of slings and arrows, that’s all. But I’m probably wasting my time trying to explain. Have a nice day anyway.

  • emily

    @Paisley: Do you seriously think drug addiction is a “stumble”?

  • IRMA

    Gerry, you’re irresistible!

  • Please

    @Paisley:
    You are wasting your time, because they do it out of jealousy, not lack of common sense. They know they could never have him so they become bitter and sling at him. Believe me, if he wanted any of them, they’d go running. They are a bunch of bitter lonely hypocrites with no men, so they come here to get a whiff of a hot man, but since they can’t really be with him in reality they tear him to shreds. I’m not a big fan of his, but it’s so obvious to see.

  • orange cutie

    @..:
    Thanks :)

  • http://paisley3691.livejournal.com Paisley

    @emily: Emily, with all due respect, I do. I had a serious drinking problem myself once and have been sober for 5 years, two months and counting. But I’m well aware that I could “stumble” again at any time and am vigilant. If it ever does happen, I’ll have to pick myself up, brush myself off and start all over again. Peace.

  • emily

    @Paisley: Oh stop. Lots of people suffer from substance abuse problems. It’s a life-long disease. You are an addict for life. You are sugar-coating and minimizing Gerry’s problem so you can continue to worship him. Addiction is not a stumble, by any definition of the word. You’re enabling him and you should know better.

  • Can’tGetEnough

    Good Morning JJer’s! I think GB looks pretty good in these pics. I’m not seeing any signs of botox. I think he looks ‘different’ because his hair is shorter and dyed, combed back and not looking as wild as it usually does. One of the WO ladies was there last night and spotted him arriving with Alan. She said she waved her Scottish flag and he waved back at her. No pics were allowed inside the party of course, so we don’t know if he was ‘partying’ it up or kinda quiet. I haven’t seen any Tweets yet either.
    Have a great day!

    @wtf is wrong with Oh dear

     I am more than happy for you to ask ”WTF is wrong with Oh dear ?” Because I am going to tell WTF is wrong.

    When I initially read GB had gone into rehab I genuinely thought – even though I saw it coming from the reports of his lifestyle -what a real shame. Good for him,  trying to sort himself out.  But then the PR machine started to roll into action and it’s all turned really  shallow and shoddy.

    Let me make this clear, I have absolutely no  doubt that GB does have a drug problem, I also have absolutely no problem with him not taking his drug problem seriously, which he obviously does not.   If he did,  he would have been  in rehab for a h*ell of a  lot longer than two weeks.  There  would be  little or no press photos of him swanning around LA. And he  wouldn’t be suited up running around  Hollywood in a desparate bid not to miss out on any of the  parties on Oscar night

    What I have a massive,  massive  problem with, is GB and his management using this issue of  drugs and rehab as form of emotional PR manipulation to get  even more  self promotion and ultimately even  more cash.  
    As I  said before,  I know people who have been through the  trauma of addiction, and their families would have  given their eye teeth to have the resourses GB  has at his fingertips to get their family members treatment. 

    So when I see someone like him  using rehab to essentially  promote he’s career, by  garnering sympathic cash friendly publicity.

     Yes I am going kick off. I going to kick off big  time – because it’s totally and completely out of order.

    (sigh) I can see that I am indeed wasting my time. Do not presume to preach to me in a condescending, righteous manner unless you’ve walked in the same shoes as somebody with similar issues. If you do speak from experience and have never STUMBLED, more power to you. Give yourself a self-impressed pat on the back. Later…

    And if his fan sites aren’t talking about his rehab stunt ( oops stint) another reason could be that deep down they know his motivation for going into BF was not completely  genuine. 

  • ..

    Something very odd about a brief rehab stay and then straight into Oscar parties strategy. Surely even the dedicated supporters can see that something doesn’t ring true about all this.

  • Nattie

    @..:
    Totally agree. Fresh out of rehab and straight to parties, smiling and mingling like nothing was ever wrong in the first place. Fishy.

  • Toronto

    My two cents? He looks GREAT. And I prefer him slender, not chunky. I don’t think he’s had plastic surgery; his slimmer face is due to his weight loss. But I DO think he botoxes on a very regular basis. I can always tell when it’s fresh. He smiles, laughs and gestures….and his eyebrows stay low and don’t move.

    It’s not a big deal. In showbiz, anyone over 35 gets it done. Heck, I’VE had it done. And to the poster who posted the pic of him showing that he still has forehead lines….botox doesn’t erase all lines, if they are deep. They become more shallow and less noticable….but they’ll still be there a little bit.

  • ellie’

    Gerry looking so hot…

  • colormeskeptical

    @bystander: I don’t think his fan base is waning. Just some fans even those that frequent Gerry fan sites find that kind of thing silly, like going to conventions and following him to every single premiere and TV show. You can be a fan but keep a level of objective detachment and the majority do. He is after all just an actor not a god. The hardcore have always been a small but visible and vocal group.

  • colormeskeptical

    @Toronto: I believe he botoxes before big events and when he is making a movie, I think he doesn’t overdo it like he once did, one just needs a dermatologist with the right touch, like whoever does Meryl Streep and many others, but not Nicole Kidman or Marcia Cross. That’s overkill.

  • T.

    @..:

    *applause* Well said. This place is becoming very frightening. I’m out of here. xx

  • Manny

    He didn’t shave his neck again… why bother dressing up without taking 5 minutes to shave his neck… come on Butler…
    .
    I have to agree with oy, not liking the pants on this. He does look good but what a shame that the party is more important than his quest for sobriety. *shaking head*
    .
    @me:
    .
    A good facial can do that. I don’t see any sign of nip tuck from these piccies…
