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.

    @Cnoc Mhor:
    I could tell from promos that Dr. Drew was VERY concerned about Gerry attending parties too soon after he was released from Betty Ford. He said he was very concerned that this was putting him in “harm’s way”. He questioned if this was like “handing Gerry a loaded gun”, and drew a parallel to Whitney who did the same thing.

    “Fighting fit: The actor looked tanned and fit, compared to his gaunt appearance at a magazine party in October”
    .
    The reason he looks different in both pictures is because the one from Oct/2011 was taken from another angle, which makes one’s head look bigger. However, his body looks exactely the same. But i think the hair didn’t do him any good. He looked a little like Richard Brenson from Vir.gin. I defintely prefer colored and shorter hair. There is no doubt he looked “Haute” last night lol

    .
    He’s right! He looked great and he knew it lol.

  • http://peaceforwriting.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Yes, frazzled indeed. Hope he left soon after. Kind of obvious the was crashing in that photo possibly simply not into it at all by that point. He’d hit his saturation point.
    -
    That said, he never could have done what he has done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time.
    -
    Feel Gerry needs to feel more useful than how he is now. He needs to be needed, have purpose, be respected, kept busy progressing with his career (getting back to work) keeping focus on what’s really important right now, his recovery.
    -
    I disagree with faulting him for attending the Vanity Affair party as seen as just getting back into the party scene. That wasn’t fair. It wasn’t to ‘party’. He was invited. You don’t just appear.
    -
    He felt well and strong enough to show up and be counted in need of respect for completing an intensive hard few weeks of isolation and detox. It could not have been a pleasant experience.
    -
    Living in that enabling environment can change people. Even if you’re authorized to bend the rules being a ‘star’, it changes you. Gerry’s a good guy who got caught up in a very bad situation. He’s wrestling with something he’s going to have to live with forever and so would his partner of the heart. He needs support not criticism.
    -
    The other stuff is easier (I think) to deal with by shifting focus on who he hangs with and where then shifting to something else to fill the need for energy…

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bH56PuqaFJg

    His issues are on-going. The back doesn’t just get better. His yearning for energy doesn’t fade. Yet I believe he has a strong link to the outside world he does not want to let down. That he will cope even if that means finding another spa somewhere else! Oregon? Fir trees? Fresh air? A trip along a river hiking? White water rafting? Just someplace with different options!

    Gerry might benefit from Dr. Amen. Frankly we call could. His basic question before doing anything, eating, etc is “Will this help or hurt my brain.” Rather simple but it’s the same principle for eating. Is this food medicine? Is it good for me, by body, mind and soul?

    I also think he’s sleep deprived. Feel somehow, like at the BFC, he got good rest and lots of sleep. Our bodies recharge and cells rebuild when we sleep. The evidence is evident in these red carpet arrivals.
    ~K

  • Dr. Sleep

    Research on sleep suggests once you get into a pattern of not sleeping properly and of course that depends on the person but usually 6 – 7 hours a night is required for the body each night to repair and recharge as you say, especially say someone physically training their body, you can NEVER get that deficit back and it can do incredible damage to your health. So it comes down to changing one’s lifestyle and I get a feeling he doesn’t want to or can’t. He looks good on the red carpet because of makeup and stylists and he’s an actor, they know how to turn it on when called for. Check out the photo of him just a few hours later.

    And that NY Post quote, sounds like Gerry trying to convince himself he’s OK

    What should he be trying to convince himself of, he’s not OK? Think what he’s saying is he successfully completed the 1st step. Now on to maintenance, which is harder. Like they’ve said here. It’s the company he keeps. The environment and perhaps too much time on his hands.
    -
    As for sleeping, feel he got more of that at the BFC and liked it. Developed a routine he might be trying to maintain. Give him some credit, won’t ya?
    -
    You get a feeling he can’t. I get a feeling he can. He’s done it before so he’ll do it again! He’s incentives, a lot of them. The rewards far outweigh the negatives.
    -
    Sorry, make-up?
    -
    No he can’t get his deficit back! It’s about now. The future. Better living. Kicking addictions. Staying away from nay-sayers! Negative people who want to keep him down with them! Use him. Until he gets fed up with that, that’s his only problem that I can see. He’s got a tremendous amount of will-power!

    @Dr. Sleep:
    .
    The other big thing about proper sleep is the emotional ability to cope. If you are sleep deprived you will feel more anxious, have a hard time concentrating, and depressive feelings will come to the forefront.

  • Jojo

    Just my thoughts. Ok when the news broke about Demi, I thought of Gerry. His eyes and face never looked quite right for a long while. I had trouble believing he was truly healthy. He said he fought the cigarettes last summer. To hear, his time in rehab – well Chaka Kahn said that since her time without drugs so many decades back she avoids places that tempt her. She wished Whitney did the same. So that being said, Dr. Drew’s statement about the concerns he has with Gerry and his parties makes sense. In fact, I thought the same when first heard the news.

    So I hope for the best. He is a man of extremes.

  • Jojo

    Angelina jolie said once “iwent through heavy, darker times and I survived them,” she said. “I didn’t die young. So, I’m very lucky.” she was stunning but very thin according to many as dr. Drew points out. He states there is something very deep she must be working out. But I think with her children and causes she has a good shot to having a long life.

    Gerard says the same things and has been in too thin also. His lifestyle is not as careful. I do not like to see him clubbing as often as he does. Again

    Hoping for the best.

  • mailbumillie

    This is the thing though about the people who think Gerry looks good on the red carpet ergo he’s fine. If you are really a fan you know what Gerry himself has admitted to regarding his issues with alcohol, regarding his own addictive personality traits and his tendency to extremes. So this isn’t as if Tom Hanks suddenly did a three week stint at Betty Ford. This is someone with admitted issues and every recovering addict is one drink, one snort, one cigarette, one painkiller dependence away from relapsing back to full blown addiction. For those who have not seen it check out the TMZ post on page 7, it’s been conveniently negative thumbed but worth a read.

    I saw part of Dr. Drew last night, didn’t seem him talking about Gerry but he says he felt bad he never said anything about Demi himself because he was concerned but kept it to himself and he claims he is not going to do that anymore. Is it his business maybe not. If it saves someone’s life down the line do you care?

  • Rebecca

    Yes, Gerry looked great on the red carpet. He needed to be at this event because there were tons of important people there from the movie industry to make contact with. I understand all of your concerns and I agree wholeheartedly. However, none of us truly knows what is going on in his everyday life. He’s probably (and hopefully) seeing rehab counselors, etc. and doing everything he can to kick or work on whatever drug habits and/or other issues he has in his life. Just because he was at a couple of parties doesn’t mean he fell off the wagon. He needed to mingle with people in the business and be seen.
    I would also say from the outside looking in that he needs to work on getting normalcy in his life – 8 hours of sleep a night, exercise, healthy relationships, etc. Hopefully he will take these next several weeks before he starts his next movie and do all of the above! I wish him the best.

  • natalie

    #277: I agree! It’s very easy to have an opinion about someone else’s life . . . but in this case when it’s a health-related matter you want to your show support and hope that person is getting the best ongoing treatment based on their needs. GB certainly seems like a strong person and one can only hope he uses that inner strength to live his life in a healthy manner away from any possible enablers if that’s an issue. He looked great in the recent pics . . . present at work-related parties for work purposes . . . it didn’t appear that he was there to party just for the sake of partying so soon after exiting BFC. He seems very dedicated to his work not wanting to jeopardize that or more importantly his health. “To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”

  • Manny

    @mailbumillie:
    .
    That is an interesting question you ask IMO. Dr. Drew is about educating like Dr. Oz. Because the format is all Dr. Drew’s he can really ask anything or approach whichever subject if he feels it is timely, educational and it doesn’t hurt if it adds to the viewship. Because Dr. Drew’s specialty is addiction and recovery, he seems the most knowledgable to tackle these subjects due to his years of practice.
    .
    So I guess my answer would be yes… Sometimes it just takes someone starting the conversation for change to find it’s wings.

    Really, how can you make such determination from a picture? I don’t think it’s fair of you to say he’s carshing. If he were crashing it means he was drugging a few hours before, which means the rehab wasn’t successful. The high leads to a crash. Please be careful not to throw conclusions around.

    When I said he was frazzeld i menat he had an empty look on his face. Maybe he wasn’t into taking fan pictures just wanting to enjoy the night. Maybe he was tired and ready to go.

    A good chance was he was bored inside and could have timed his BFC visit with it ending so he could attend this and manage to handle it? That’s my take on it. That and he was proud, felt good, in control and wanted everyone to see that (us) and feel the love of those who were there to see him as well!

    Here is a clip where Dr. Drew does a good job explaining the basics of addiction. For those of us not as well informed about the addict brain, this is a pretty clear explanation.
    http://drdrew.blogs.cnn.com/2012/02/15/pill-popping-rx-for-death/?hpt=dr_t3
    I also like how he explains why it is so important for an addict to stay clear of people and places that enable.

    .
    Exactly, you’d feel groggy and irritated, and not be nice to the people around you. It’s not pleasant being around a groggy person.
    .
    @Dr Sleep – that’s a bunch of nonsense. The body has a way of protecting itself. You cannot survive on 4 hours of sleep in perpetuity. If you only get 4 hours of sleep or less continually, after a few days your body will crash and you’d get the strong need to go to sleep. As soon as you can go to sleep that night you will, forgoing all your other bodily needs like eating dinner in favor of just going to bed. You wouldn’t even wait for your usual sleep time to go to bed. You’d just want to go to sleep. It becomes your number one physical need. That night you will get a full night of sleep. People mistakenly call it catching up on sleep. There is no such thing as catching up on sleep. It just means that your body is tired and need some extra rest than what it usually gets.
    .
    Another thing. 6 hours of sleep is not enough for most people, although you could function on that. Most people need to get 7-81/2 of sleep a night. Unfortunately, during the week most people only get 6 hours of sleep that by the time the weekend rolls around they are exhausted. That’s why you see most people getting an extra 2 hours of sleep on weekends. People call it catching up, but that’s not what it is. To catch up on the deficit you’d have to get 10 hours extra in addition to the sleep hours that you need for the day in which you’re catching up. Basically, the catching up is just a lot of hype. Our body is remarkable at protecting and re-setting itself.

    Feel more responsibility might be what he craves? Maybe even needs. Attend more charity events. Go back to Haiti? Visit his Slumdog money recipients? Check on them, progress?

    Dr Drew is all about sensationalizing celebrity and notorious people’s lives. He was much better at helping people when he was on MTV years ago. Now that he’s on HLN, I am not impressed with him. They sensationalize everything for rating. It’s the same format as E and TMZ. They all try to have rating and make money on celebrities’ expense. Analyzing celebrities is another offshoot business of show biz. The problem with addiction is that no one can help you unless you make the decision to change your life. No amount of convincing or tough love helps. I think the best thing against addiction is prevention. Educating young adults on the dangers of substance abuse. Of course with celebrities they seem all to be predisposed for addiction. Maybe it’s the creative mind. Or maybe it’s the lifestyle that sends you looking for comfort, relaxation, and solace in mind-altering substance. Whatever it is, Dr Drew is not the answer on Gerry or anyone else.
    .
    That said, I think we don’t know what’s going on with him to make arbitrary verdicts about his situation, past or present. I think we need to wait to see what else is going to happen in the near future. He might speak about it and shed some light on himself. He is not big on revealing himself but sometimes he surprises us and does it. I am hoping he will for this situation.

    Since what we think about comes about I try not think like that. Just the opposite! Just too many close calls too close together for my (personal) liking so something is off-balance it seems and he needs to be more in charge of his own destiny. He hasn’t fulfilled his purpose(s) yet.
    -
    Fact is, he’s mortal. He’s not Peter Parker. He’ll not Hellboy. He’s flesh and blood… a man. And he’s a man with a good heart. I have a lot of respect for him, even with all things considered.

    Feel, somehow, all that happens happens for a reason. What reason this? That, like a lot in his life, isn’t up to me (or us) but to him to know or figure out.
