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.

    A “blind item” from CDAN today. Would explain the Rehab…
    When this reality housewife was sharing the details about her sex week with this A list movie star. What she forgot to mention was that the reason was it lasted an entire week or weekend was because it took almost that long for the actor to get ready to perform. Our Housewife was very imaginative in thinking of new ways to make him performance ready but the drugs really made that difficult.

  • kristie

    I can’t imagine GB nor his people would appreciate Dr. Drew discussing him on that show last night. I wondered if maybe they called the lawyers out and had them call the producers. I wouldn’t blame him if he did.

  • @WF

    @WF:
    If this is true, it proves he doesn’t have as much sex as we think. People who do drugs are not into it as much. They are more interested in getting their next fix. So I guess, he doesnt pick up as much as we think, which explains Brandi. She was there willing and able, an easy lay. Not anyhting more. Doesn’t even mean Brandi is his type.

  • Dark Knight

    Those photos linked by “Can’tGetEnough” aren’t from Gerry going into rehab, they are from when he was in London promoting Coriolanus and after the Graham Norton chat show, just so you know!

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

    @WF:
    Then how did she score him an “11″ after she blabbed and sold her story like poor desperate white trailer trash?? Just askin’?
    ~K

  • question

    @Dark Knight:
    so he wasn’t doing well at the Graham Norton show. We thought that he looked bad only after leaving The Box. The whole period he was in london it seems wasn’t a good period for him.
    Maybe that’s why he left Scotland so fast???

  • just visiting

    So who are we to believe? the blind item which more or less infers that Gerry was a dud and couldn’t get it up OR Brandi who we actually saw and heard say that she had a week of fun with Gerry and scored him an 11 out of 10 on the performance scale.

    The CDAN item just sounds like more supposition IMO.

  • Dark Knight

    @question:
    My comment was just to address the fact that the article in the link seemed to imply that those photos were of him going into rehab, which they aren’t.

  • Stormyweather

    Today on the View, Mary J. Blige talked about her problems with addiction and she stated that she knew that she had to change her environment before she could get better. She was using coke and would actually go out late at night looking for a fix. It seems it’s more common in stardom then we realize. She said it also affected her work and decision making processes.
    -
    She said she did it all without the help of rehab but she’s strong willed. Even admitting you have the problem and seeking the help shows strength. At least Gerry doesn’t seem to be in denial.
    -
    I agree with her about people who come in to your life and don’t care about you and get you what you want as long as they get a paycheck or benefit in some ways. She also says she sought out people who were addicts too to hang with.
    -
    Gerry needs to revamp his social circles no doubt. There’s an element in there that’s fed in to this and Gerry needs to distance himself from these people. I don’t know who they are but they are toxic in his life and unless they go away, I fear he’ll slip back and the outcome might not be good the next time.
    -
    But we all need someone stronger then us who is not afraid to stand up and give a little tough love. We’re not always going to be strong on our own so having the right people around, people who really care about you and not how they will benefit from your relationship.
    -
    He even commented once about the reason he started smoking again last year was because he was around “a friend” who was smoking and got back in to the habit. That’s not a good sign. That might just have been a “hint” of who was around him at the time and might have caused the problem to get worse.

  • @WF

    @GFW:
    You’re such a simple-minded person and that explains your babblings on this site.
    .
    Do you believe everything people say or write?
    .
    People say self-serving stuff. Hardly anything is said for the plain sake of truth anymore.
    .
    She was trying to drum up the drama. If she would have said he wasn’t good in bed, people would have either called her a sour puzz, a woman scorned, accused her of kissing and telling (at least now people are not as upset with her for kissing and telling since she was complementary to him), or she would have risked turning Gerry into a foe. What for? It’s possible they didn’t even do it. Maybe all they did is do drugs together, not that this is any better than fuucking Brandi, but the point is we don’t know what is really true, propagandized, faked, or lied about.
    .
    Do you think I really think Gerry is an 11 just because Brandi said so?
    .
    Do you think I think he was abusing cocaine just because TMZ said so?
    .
    Do you think I think he fuucks like a rabbit just because the tabloids say so?
    .
    Do you think I think he spent a whole week with Brandi just because she said as?
    .
    Do you think I think he is darting this woman or that woman just because the tabloids say they seemed cozy at some party?
    .
    I don’t know what to believe. That’s why I take everything in with a grain of salt. Unless I see proof, I just take it as hearsay.

  • Stormyweather

    @GFW:

    Maybe he’s quite “skilled” at other endeavors, if you know what I mean!

  • @WF

    @just visiting:
    And I definitely don’t believe or disbelieve the Canadian item.
    I was just playing the devil’s advocate.
    The point is we don’t know if something is true, embellished, or purely fiction.

  • Stormyweather

    Why did I get a neg thumb for my post about Mary J. Blige? There are some weirdos that hang around this place who wouldn’t know their azz from applebutter!

  • Stormyweather

    You know if I’m going to give someone a “thumbs down” I at least back it up with a statement, either directly to the person or in general. I don’t just hit and run like a coward. However, I have a couple of people here I give thumbs down to before even reading their posts because they’re always saying the same old crap and remarking on it seems useless. I’m realistic enough to know that sometimes you just can’t fix stupid, or crazy for that matter.

  • Stormyweather

    Also, I am generous with the thumps up too, if I’m feeling it and I may comment or agree verbally. But at least have the balls to follow up your neg thumb with your rebuttal at least once, otherwise it’s pretty meaningless and rather cowardly.

  • Stormyweather

    @GF:

    Was the same one that was with him last year, eh? Sounds werious! Wonder what she thought about the whole Brandi Glanville thing?

  • Info

    @Stormyweather:
    Don’t let the thumbs upset you. They don’t make any sense anyway.

  • Stormyweather

    I mean “serious”!

  • Stormyweather

    @Info:

    I think what is upsetting about it is when you get them for saying something that is almost common knowledge and not an opinion so much. Like today is Tuesday and you get a neg thumb! Must be the drug addicts hanging around the site who are so in denial they don’t even know the day of the week!

    A modified blog story comment very recently by a long-time male reader…
    I’ve always felt you know you’re really care when the person who cares has seen you at your worst and doesn’t run away.
    ~K, that’s me, that’s what I believe… and they’re right, they’re always right

    I couldn’t watch the Oscars, no sound on my (very) old TV (just for that channel), and wondered if Michael Fassbender there? He was really good in his films this year.
    -
    Felt the whole red carpet part was SO boring. The worst ever. I didn’t even see people ON the red carpet watching E! They kept showing the people at the table talking about the same 6 (?) people’s dresses?
    -
    Feel what that nutcase did to Bryan was really bad… really damped the mood for it all. Next year might be better! Hope Gerry gets a nomination for Of Men & Mavericks! Hell, he should!
    -
    Also I can’t believe he is addicted to one thing because of how he could surf so well? Don’t think he could focus like he did if he were. JMO. Feel it’s exaggerated is all. It’s more for the painkillers. Now to build up those lower-back muscles and ease him off the stronger stuff. It can happen. And stress, stress (I think) settles in his lower back.

    @Manny:

    The one that bothers me most is where I suggested that Gerry might be particularly well skilled in certain aspects of his sexual prowess. I would think it would please a few around here! Guess not!

  • Info

    @Stormyweather:
    Sometimes, the comments that make the most sense get the most negs. It seems that there is a lot of jealousy. They are jealous you said something with common sense, so they thumb you down. They don’t want you to get high thumbs God forbid. A lot of the bad behavior here stems from pure jealousy.
    .
    Also some of the Gerry bashing, I have said many times, stem from jealousy. People don’t sympathize with someone that appears to have everything – money, fame, and good looks – because they think he is nothing like them, so they seek to bring such a person down. Truth is, he has more in common with them than they think. Such people have as much personal problems as regular folks, and in the end, we all need the same things to survive, be happy, and have a good life. And….. we all have an expiration date. It’s not as if people like Gerry can live forever while we have a limit. We are all the same. All we have to do is figure out what we need to be happy, and it’s not necessarily fame, or money. How many famous people can’t be happy despite, the glitter, fame, money, etc…? Why? Because happiness is an emotional thing connected to the spiritual. It’s not connected to tangible things. Don’t judge someone just because you think they are spoiled and rich.

  • whooo

    @GFW:
    You nut, this year’s Oscars was one of the best they had in years. They had an almost 5% increase in viewership. Audiences seemed to like the films chosen this year, and they also liked that Billy Crystal was back.
    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/02/27/hollywood-and-the-oscars-surprise-with-celebration-of-traditional-values.html
    .
    I hope this trend continues. Also, Gerry’s next few projects are very patriotic. This might help him get at least nominated.

    “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as he/ll don’t deserve me at my best”…… Marilyn Monroe. Great quote.

    At least here you make sense. I totally agree.

    @Logic:
    and what does it have to do with gerry?

  • Cnoc Mhor

    @Stormyweather: …”Must be the drug addicts hanging around the site who are so in denial they don’t even know the day of the week”…that’s a bit harsh isn’t it??…to suggest that those who are negging are druggies who are also dummies??…you know I was agreeing with you up to that point on some of what you were saying regarding the thumbs! I don’t get thumbing down people who are just posting links for example but I do understand some folks wanting to neg when they disagree with a post or if people are insulting others. Now, not everyone wants to leave lurkdom to respond to posts on these GB threads. Actually it can be quite daunting considering the amount of backlash you could wind up being subjected to for having a different opinion. The neg thumbsies happened to me on my strong opinion of GB’s leaving rehab and running to parties all within a very short period of time etc. I was negged heavily last thread for stating my views and I felt bad about it for a bit because naturally one likes to think others can see one’s point of view, understand it and if not agree with it then hopefully disagree respectfully. I can’t complain in this case though as people just negged and didn’t attack, unfortunately some don’t just neg, they attack and really get nasty. It’s too bad but it seems to just be the way here…the only thing I really wish you didn’t write in your post was the assumption about “druggies”…as a former substance abuser who has negged posts I disagreed with and not written explanations on GB threads for the most part, I am happy to say that I am NOT a coward and certainly not because I didn’t have the time or inclination to explain each time I have negged and by the way I do know today is Tuesday and I think many others who walked and are walking a similar walk do as well:) Hope you are having a happy Tuesday!

  • Stormyweather

    @GFW:

    Who’s Bryan?
    -

    @Info:

    I agree with a lot of what you say and it makes me mindful of the fact that Gerry was once very unhappy with his life and went in to a self destructive mode! Now perhaps his life isn’t making him as happy as he thought it would because he doesn’t understand that it’s not money and fame and women that make you happy. Happiness is something that comes from within, not without. Self destructive people can repeat their patterns if they don’t get some therapy or at least have healthy people in their lives.
    -
    I wish they would have never brought up the “c” word and just stuck with the prescription drug addiction. Those can kill ya but I’ll bet coke is easier to get in a pinch, especially in HW.

  • Logic

    @Really…..:

    It was in response to the male reader that GFW was talking about. The quotes have a similar meaning. Also, is it not obvious how it refers to Gerard Butler? Or anyone really?

  • Stormyweather

    @Cnoc Mhor:

    It was a joke but I apologize if I offended anyone. And I never refer to anyone as a “druggie”. You can be an addict of just about anything, not just drugs. Your drug of choice can be gambling or spending but it’s the denial that’s the bad thing and at least Gerry seems to have a handle on his problem.

  • Really…..

    @Logic:
    “Also, is it not obvious how it refers to Gerard Butler? Or anyone really?”
    .
    No, becasue we don’t know who Gerry is. The only thing this quote tellm me is how Marilyn Monroe is, or was when she was alive.

  • Logic

    My apologies, it of course doesn’t refer to anyone, but herself. But it can be applied to anyone ya? I personally feel that way and I’m sure many other do too.

  • Rebecca

    @Info

    Wonderful, intelligent post! That’s what’s bad about the internet – the constant bashing and horrible things people say in the privacy of their homes or wherever. Also, people often assume so many things about Gerard that they truly don’t have a clue about. We only hear bits and pieces about him and see a few pictures of him but none of us truly know what’s going on in his life.

  • Logic

    @Really…..:

    Sh/it some of you can search for a fault with anything and anyone can’t u? Good lord.

  • Stormyweather

    Besides making what appears to be a bad joke on my part, JJ seems to be taking full advantage of the possibility of lurkers who might have addiction issues with the advertisements around the page for rehab and doctors.
    -
    Personally, I have many abusers/addicts in my family from alcohol to spending to sex. You see them kick one and pick up another. No matter what you say or do or try to convey to them, their denial that they have a problem is always that it’s YOU who has the problem. They can always just have one or two drinks and believe they’re in control or charge up an expensive piece of jewelry just to hock next month because they’re broke and nothing you have to say about it is valid. And it’s not idiocy. They’re not dumb by any stretch. They really do believe Tuesday is Wednesday (which is a metaphor by the way) and they’ll go down fighting for it!
    -
    I admire anyone who is a recovering addict of any kind and I don’t minimalize it but please understand what you put the people through on the receiving end of things too and I don’t need a lecture on it. Living with a substance abuser is harder then being the one addicted. Trust me on this!
