Gerard Butler - Vanity Fair Oscar Party

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.

The 42-year-old actor was spotted out the night before at the Weinstein Company and Chopard pre-Oscar party! Before the party, Gerard enjoyed a solo lunch at Coogies restaurant.

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.

    I did mean it but you will think what you will.
    .
    You’re kind of like a NBA referee only blowing the whistle when you missed the play.
    .
    So ahem… why do you feel the need to admonish me for saying what I did while not admonishing Please? I’m really curious. Please was more crass and more demeaning in her post so why was it my post you decided to get indignant about?
    .
    Also, as a human being, I get to choose how I perceive and respond to a post the same with you. What I do for an occupation doesn’t weight into it. Why aren’t you asking Please her occupation so you can tell her how she should behave? Your condescending misguided attitude is unfortunate IMO.

    I stand corrected. From what I could find Gerry’s PR has not said what he was being treated for in their direct statement. Every news link that had something on this posted their exact statement and then posted addition info such as this…
    .
    “The 42-year-old thesp’s rep didn’t specify the reason for the stint, simply telling E! News that Butler had “completeld a successful course of treatment and has returned home in good health.” (Various reports claimed he had checked himself into rehab to fend off an increasing dependence on prescription painkillers.)”

    @Manny:
    You’re missing the point. I was trying to get to the truth. The truth is more important than posters using this for kicks. Yes, he is an actor and he has it all, but that doesn’t mean it’s ok to malign him.
    .
    We still don’t know exactly what happened and how long he was at rehab. But to call him a lowlife because he is going to industry events, or because he decided to do a shorter period than customary at rehab is no reason to dump on him. It’s his life and he knows what’s best for him. Oh dear is seriously over the top. i think she needs to take a break from here. She has said outrageous things, when all that happened is he checked HIMSELF into rehab, incase he’d have trouble in the future getting too dependent on them. To me that sounds like a very responsible mature man. Everything else you guys are hurling at him is unfounded and unfair.

  • Manny

    GFW you are such a HYPOCRITE. You demean me constantly for taking care of my hubby and father. You say I’m controlled and can’t think for myself. You are constantly putting me down for loving and caring for my home to make life comfortable for myself and those I love and then you post this…
    .
    “Nothing on this planet can compare with a woman’s love—it is kind and compassionate, patient and nurturing, generous and sweet and unconditional. Pure. If you are her man, she will walk on water and through a mountain for you, too, no matter how you’ve acted out, no matter what crazy thing you’ve done, no matter the time or demand. If you are her man, she will talk to you until there just aren’t any more words left to say, encourage you when you’re at rock bottom and think there just isn’t any way out, hold you in her arms when you’re sick, and laugh with you when you’re up. And if you’re her man and that woman loves you—I mean really loves you?—she will shine you up when you’re dusty, encourage you when you’re down, defend you even when she’s not so sure you were right, and hang on your every word, even when you’re not saying anything worth listening to. And no matter what you do, no matter how many times her friends say you’re no good, no matter how many times you slam the door on the relationship, she will give you her very best and then some, and keep right on trying to win over your heart, even when you act like everything she’s done to convince you she’s the one just isn’t good enough. That’s a woman’s love—it stands the test of time, logic, and all circumstance.”
    .
    You are such a jerk. Now I know why you ride my ass the way you do… YOU’RE JEALOUS!

  • Stormyweather

    My take on all of this is that G has been taking pain meds for a while due to chronic back injuries. The stunt at Mavericks made it worse and he realized he was getting too dependent. I think it was bad last year when he started surfing. That was about the time he looked strung out and stressed, lost a lot of weight and started smoking. He was in a lot of pain.
    -
    He has detoxed now and hopefully he will find another solution for the pain. I think the coke rumors were unfounded and I don’t say that because I think he’s never indulged but I don’t believe he had any problem with it.
    -
    I wish him all the best.

    I’m saying you are “all about the truth” yet you were the one posting every single nugget of gossip floating around out there on JJ as this broke and since. So I’m questioning why you are all of a sudden so worried about maligning Butler when you have been a contributor to the gossip. :)

    ITAW your post. Shocking I know but I do agree. He has successfully completed a detox. :)

  • malibumillie

    Hold on for a minute, did he check himself into rehab himself or wasn’t that coming from the TMZ source too?

    There were two statements made. The first one was attributed to Rupert Fowler which was very short and vague and a second one attributed to Alan.

    Maybe we need to fish those out because we may really know less than we think. Did anyone from Gerry’s team actually confirm what TMZ has been saying which is what every other outlet is repeating and we presume since no one seems to be challenging it that part has to be true beyond the one allegation that was dropped though too late in some respects. What if it was the same TMZ source though?

    I thought Rupert said that Gerard has completed treatment and was released in good health and didn’t Alan say he successfully completed treatment and was home in good health?

    I’ll leave the fishing to others.

    @Info
    See, you seem reasonable. We can agree to disagree (re: botox) without insults and arguing. What is wrong with so many others that post here? This is a gossip site and is suppose to be for fun! No? And what’s up with some perfectly reasonable posts being thumbed down so much? Are the cray-cray from the fan sites coming here, hoping to silence us for not blindly kissing Gerry’s a/s/s?

    I decided to start posting here because I could be frank. Most of you seem like fun, and, like me, can gush about GB at times, yet tell it like it is at other, not so fun, times. And what’s up with the hogwash at the fan sites that love and admiration of GB has to be “unconditional”? Ridiculous! I don’t even know the man…so of course my thoughts and feelings are conditional.

    Just had to get that off my chest….

    There it is again. Is that your desperation argument? If someone disagrees with you or doesn’t like what you post, they must be a “phannie” or board mommy? I hate to break it to you, but some of us wouldn’t touch one of the fansites if the black plague spread across the globe and they had the sole vaccine. Some of us think Gerard Butler puts out an image of stereotypical smooth guy cheese. AND we also think your posts are full of stalkerish, bizarrely presumptive b@tsh__t. There are people who read and post on this board who aren’t big GB fans and think you, Oh dear, PsychoB and the like are just as obsessive as the convention-going, doll dressing, fansite joining fans. You all collect minutia printed by gossip sites, Twitter, and other sources and use it to support your arguments about him, claiming to know things about him that you can’t possible know. The only difference is that some of you do it because you love him and the other group does it because you hate the fact that you love him. You’re all nutters cut from the same cloth. So stop assuming that people who disagree with you are doing it because they luuuuuuuuv Gerard Butler. Some of us really just think you’re posting total cr@p.

    @Manny:
    If you’re going to find the truth, wouldn’t you want to make all news available for scrutiny? Why would I omit any news that I come across. Honest people bring everything forth because they want to discover the truth, not influence it to reflect only what they want.
    .
    And don’t say you have nothing to do with ‘Oh Dear” because you have been commenting to her in agreement, as well as emboldening her mental illness. Frankly, I became tired of reading long posts filled with rants against GB. You’re just one step away from becoming like her – judging by your comments which you have been trying to deflect attention from. Please don’t act innocent.

    Number 1 – I think it is sad that something so important has to be moderated and controlled as to what their membership is allowed to discuss since obviously they feel something and want to talk. They are only allowed to either write a “declaration of support” or go elsewhere. I find it fundamentally flawed because when shocking news comes out it would seem to me to be the time for the membership to pull together rather than be told what to feel and do or go elsewhere.
    .
    Number 2 – I was eluding to the posters (other than myself) who never seem to have negs are getting negged to death. Again showing there is an element not normally here that is trying to control something here because they don’t have any control where they would prefer to be.
    .
    The fact that you want to pull yourself into that comment and take it as a personal insult is quite telling. The post was a general comment to the board and yet you felt it was talking to you. Why??? Why did you feel it was pointed at you?

    @Toronto:
    I don’t believe there is such a thing as unconditional love, only maybe when parents and kids are concerned, but everything else is conditional, especially a love of an actor. So I agree with you there.
    .
    That said, it will take Gerry doing something seriously immoral for me to withdraw support. Let me gice you an example. Child molestation or murder. Being addicted to pain killers and trying to kick the hobbit is not something that we need to hate him for. We might look down on him a bit because he wasn’t strong enough to resist instant gratification, but once you see him looking not again and cleaning up his act, not to mention when he gets back to work on new movies and looks like he is over the hurdle, you forget the little slip.

    @malibumillie:

    You can’t be this dense! He completed a detox, which is to physically get the drugs out of his system. This helps with withdrawal which can be quite painful. Now he can deal with his pain issues without resorting to the dangerous drugs, hopefully. He’s not cured, he’s just been treated.

    Ok. This thread is not your typical thread. This is not “Gerard Butler breathes while walking down the street.” This thread is about a serious issue that prompts strong reactions. Of course people are more likely to comment on it and react to it. As I said, all of those negs are not coming from fans. Some of them are coming from people who see both the cheesiness in Gerard Butler and the b@tsh__t in your posts.

    @Stormyweather: Stormy, do you remember there are some pics of him with a therapist sometime in the summer doing stretching excercises. He was at a park.
    The one pic showed this darling little girl watching him workout. Besides his back he was supposed to have a groin pull that was quite the fuel for posts. So I can see why he might have more than one pain issue.

  • Stormyweather

    @Manny:

    Have you ever tried The Butler Pantry? I think over there they pretty much say it all and post it all. It might be your cup of tea.

  • Stormyweather

    @lolita:

    I do remember that pic. He was on the ground and what appeared to be a physical therapist was working with him. Also, I remember when he was filming PTF, he had a PT working with him. There’s a pic of the guy holding his arms backwards and G has a suit on.

  • Manny

    @Info:
    .
    You make an interesting comment here… “something that we need to hate him for.”
    .
    Who is hating him for it? Not me. Do I see this as a healthy rehab? No. Do I see how his PR is handling this frustrating? Yes. Do I think him going to HW parties notorious for drug use just after leaving “rehab” a poor example of commitment to recovery if he was indeed being treated for substance abuse? Yes. I don’t hate Butler. I have never said that.
    .
    I think this whole situation is FUBAR.
    .
    TMZ outted him being at Betty Ford. His PR had to provide something as the story broke and were very vague but declare him “healthy.” Where did the painkillers info come from? Not a direct statement from his PR but was it fed to the media from his PR? When did the cocaine info filter in?
    .
    I have yet to see Butler’s camp issuing a denial about anything or filing a defamation lawsuit either. TMZ is led by a lawyer who protects his ass. Why would they feel so comfortable to continue to say what they are saying?
    .
    Unfortunately as with everything Butler, no one will get a straight answer and even if we did would we believe it?

  • TMZ

    @Info
    .
    You are misrepresenting TMZ. They have not issued a retraction about the cocaine addiction. You’re acting as if they have.
    .
    TMZ broke this story and called Gerry’s reps for confirmation. The deal TMZ likely made with Gerry’s reps was they would report on both the cocaine addiction and the prescription meds in the first article and then discuss only the pain killers in future and simply stay silent about the cocaine. This is how TWZ maintains a relationship with Gerry’s reps and can get exclusives from them in the future. It’s a delicate balancing act that these sites are always engaging in with celebs. They can have great sources telling them one thing and reps wanting to spin the story in a way favorable to the celeb. They find ways of navigating both.
    .
    What is telling here, is what has not happened.
    .
    Gerry’s reps have not denied the cocaine addiction and that is HUGE. The cocaine story is now all around the world. If Gerry was not using coke his reps would have forcefully issued a denial. They would not have let the coke story go viral. There has been no denial about the cocaine addiction. They would have also demanded TMZ issue a retraction and remove the coke story from the original article. TMZ has not issued a retraction saying the coke addiction was false and the cocaine problem is still in the original article for all the world to see. This speaks volumes.
    .
    TMZ has updated the original article and still has not removed the coke story.
    .
    A false accusation of cocaine could have serious repercussions for Gerry’s career. There would have been a swift and strong denial by Gerry’s team to every news outlet on the planet if it wasn’t true.
    .
    TMZ are talking about the pain-killers today and simply not saying anything one way or the other about the cocaine. They don’t have to because the cocaine story is already all around the world.

  • Stormyweather

    I don’t see the HW parties being the place to score drugs really. I see some very lovely, high profile folks having a good time, drinking perhaps, and eating good food. Where I would worry about Butler is the clubs late at night. I’m hoping we don’t see any pap pics of him coming out of one of those. I’ve heard the drugs flow freely in some of those places.

    BTW I do think it is a shame that the members are moderated. As I said when this first broke, it must have generated a lot of feelings with his fan base and I did (and still do) think it is sad that they can’t discuss this amongst their membership openly at their fansites. Like I have said three times, when shocking news comes to light pulling together and discussion helps works through issues and like-minded people would have insight into each other.

  • Oh dear 1

    @ Lurker

    Cold hard facts? What cold hard facts? 

     So I am making up that he was went into rehab – for a few weeks

     I am also making up that his   PR put out a press release  saying “…Gerard has completed a successful course of treatment…” 

    And those pictures of  him in LA and Malibu literally the day after getting out of rehab, are simply a figment of my crazy imagination

    And of course  literally the day after  he left rehab- which of course wasn’t in time for the biggest party season on the Hollywood calendar – and pictures and VT of him smiling for the cameras  and going to Oscar  parties. that didn’t happened either

    As for all work and no play at the Oscar night  Hollywood parties-how little you know on that one – but of course that’s  me  just making stuff up again.
     

     And it’s utter nonsense that all  the time that fictitious  press statement “…Gerard has completed a successful course of treatment… is being repeated on loads of  media outlets, across the globe,  garnering loads of sympathic column inches. 

    Yeah right- all of the above is pure self indulgent conjecture that’s just all about me and has no relation to GerryButler.  Ok if you want to believe that it’s fine by me.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    THESE are the things that have led you to conclude that Gerry didn’t go to rehab in earnest and it just exploiting a storyline for publicity? Jesus Christ. Really? That’s just demented. Each point above has already been addressed in previous posts so I won’t rehash, but you really are disturbed. I don’t know if it is a Gerry Butler specific distortion going on in your head or if you’re like this with everything, jumping to bizarre conclusions based on pittance. I kinda hope you’re like this with everything, because if it’s Gerry specific, I’d be worried for his safety.
    *
    Not that the distinction matters that much, but who said that his publicist put out a press release? How do you know that he wasn’t called by TMZ or other tabloids and asked for a statement? Have you seen a copy of a press release? Has there been a report that they sent around a press release? Didn’t one of the two statements issued come from Alan’s mouth? Again, it doesn’t matter, because the mere fact that they responded to an inquiry about rehab doesn’t suggest that he’s using the storyline for publicity like you sickly claim. But I’m not sure where you’re getting that “fact.”
    *
    Ugh, God. This is really scary.
