Paul Bettany: On Set for 'Blood'!

Paul Bettany gets into character while on set for his new movie Blood on Saturday (February 25) in Liverpool, England.

The 40-year-old English actor plays Joe, one of the main characters in the thriller. The movie follows the moral collapse of a police family. Two cop brothers, smothered by the shadow of their former police chief father, must investigate a crime they themselves have committed.

Paul most recently worked on the sci-fi flick Priest and Margin Call with Zachary Quinto, Kevin Spacey, and Penn Badgley.

Blood is set to be released sometime in 2013.

    Priest wasn’t his best film but Paul Bettany is a seriously awesome actor. Love him!

  • val

    Love him! Wish he was in Les Mis instead though. I prefer him over Russell Crowe any day.

  • Lu D.

    he looks realy old

  • Hey

    He and Jennifer C. are such a cute couple.

  • food 4 thought

    Welcome ex-GB fans. I’m sure Paul Bettany won’t mind us using his thread to hang out and chat. Hope everyone is having a great Friday, and I want to wish all the JJrs a great holiday!

  • Good Idea

    @food 4 thought:

    Thank you, thank you, very happy to be here.

    Also, I’ll go back periodically and check for interesting posts and copy them over here. I can’t do it all day, every day (work, family, xmas) but I will find a few minutes here and there to make sure we don’t miss any good talking points.

  • Good Idea

    @food 4 thought:

    Sooo… what was your “breaking point”? Was it the “By the way folks, I have a girlfriend (insert cheesy wink). No, I will not tell you her name! How dare you ask!” foolery or the “Hell yes I’ll take $6500 worth of free stuff while there are whole families living in cars!” crap that did it?

  • Side eye

    Here I am. Hope this works, guys. I just checked, and that tweet where someone told him to su.ck off or similar, was someone telling him to eff off. Sounds like he pizzed off someone at the club.

  • food 4 thought

    @Good Idea: All of the above. Been off him for quite a while, but it’s the whole ongoing trainwreck in slow motion thing that keeps me attached. It’s really more compelling than any of his lame-o films recently. And the whole girlfriend saga is just so beyond crazy. I’m convinced it’s a paid relationship, and I love a good conspiracy theory, so I’m hooked. Who did he p!ss off in HWood? Who is pulling his strings? What is the endgame here? It’s all so convoluted.

  • food 4 thought

    @Side eye: Welcome! I’m sure he gets on people’s nerves in clubs all the time. Probably hits on their dates and tries to get free drinks.

  • Good Idea

    @food 4 thought:

    I hear ya. Also, his management team (including PR, agent, etc) just seem so amateur and inept. It’s really entertaining to watch their obvious attempts at spin control. That really is the problem, I think. His whole game is just a little too obvious. It’s insulting, really, that they think the general public is so stupid. I think CM and PFK shows that the movie viewing public is evolving and they’re inability to realize this prevents them from keeping up.

    Do agree that he pissed somebody or several somebodies off. Have you checked out the comments on DeadlineHollywood for any post that involves him? They are brutal.

  • Side eye

    @food 4 thought: Agreed. I’ve been off him since around rehab time. Actually when he dissed Brandi. That’s what started it for me. This whole new thing with the fake girlfriend is really fun to watch, in a train wreck kind of way.

  • Good Idea

    @Side eye:

    Very welcome! Would love to hear your “breaking point” moment too. I think if I worked for him I would start polling people about this to find out what caused people to stop giving a crap. Might give them some valuable insight.

  • food 4 thought

    @Good Idea: I will check out DeadlineHollywood. Sounds interesting.
    When he refers to the “girlfriend” as nice, but his costars as awesome, amazing, stupendous, blah blah blah, it makes me laugh. So beyond fake. No way is Mum going to let that ho in the house.

  • Good Idea

    @Side eye:

    Oops you answered while i was typing. Agreed on the Brandi thing, I think that’s around the time the ugliness started to show in a more public way,

  • food 4 thought

    I would have to say that he was going downhill fast in my opinion, but the nasty business with the married porn actress was my absolute end. Since there was a child involved, that did it for me. After that I was only here for the other commentors.

  • Good Idea

    @food 4 thought:

    Hmmm, I’m not so sure about that. Dude reminds me a lot of my brother, who is, unfortunately, an alcoholic. As my brother gets older, the quality of the ladies (ahem) that he’s able to pull has declined. My mom is polite to all of them and just waits for them to be traded for the next one. She doesn’t get emotionally invested either way. I think the ladies (ahem) can tell too, it’s sad.

  • Side eye

    @food 4 thought: I need to check that out myself. They really go at him at Data Lounge, and a few other places. Much worse than here. I wonder if his sheeple ever read any of these sites? I do hope the other regulars come over here, but if they don’t, it’s still a few less hits on his thread.

  • food 4 thought

    @Good Idea: That’s too bad. Must make for some tension on holidays. But you are right – if you are a parent you kind of take the good with the bad to preserve the relationship with your child, no matter how troubled.

  • Good Idea

    @food 4 thought:

    Whoa! Heard about the married lady (he was friends with her and her husband, right?), but did not hear that she was a porn actress. Details?

  • Side eye

    @Good Idea: Agreed. I think around rehab time was when the bad side started to show itself, and it’s been downhill ever since. I really don’t think he cares about working at all anymore, either. He just seems to want fast gigs to get money to travel and party.

  • food 4 thought

    @Good Idea: Don’t have any links to share, but I believe it was last winter that a report surfaced that he had gotten involved with a married porn actress, who then left her husband to be with Gerard Butler. He dumped her, and the husband named Butler in the divorce papers. This woman evidently had a child from a previous relationship. That’s all I remember about that..

  • Can’tGetEnough

    Hey JJer’s! If you don’t want any hits to GB’s page, it certainly can’t hurt to chat elsewhere. Hope you’re all having a great night. Been reading, but haven’t had much incentive to post tweets and links….plus I’ve been busy getting ready for the holidays.
    Have a great weekend!

  • food 4 thought

    Thanks CGE – good to see you! I’m signing off since it’s late in my part of the world – so a Merry Christmas to all! Thanks for the fun conversation!

  • Good Idea

    @Can’tGetEnough:

    Welcome and glad to see you here!

  • Disclaimer

    To any Paul Bettany fans who happen upon this thread – we are NOT talking smack about Bettany. We are talking about Gerard Butler. That is all.

  • Good Idea

    @food 4 thought:

    Classy.

  • Side eye

    You too, CGE! Nice to see you. I hope the others follow as well. It’s a great experiment.

  • Good Idea

    @Disclaimer:

    Good idea. We should probably post this regularly or poor Paul Bettany might start getting a bad rap.

    I should sign off as well. Xmas shopping and baking to finish tomorrow!

    Thanks to everyone for a good conversation. Will definitely be back.

  • Can’tGetEnough

    Thanks for the welcome and nice to see you all here too. I’m sure others will follow. Of course, everyone here will be accused of being a jealous old hag, but who gives a rat’s behind anymore? It will still be interesting to see what 2013 brings for Butler. Have to admit, it IS fun to watch.
    I’ve got to get some sleep…I have wrapping and baking to do tomorrow too.
    Goodnight ladies.

  • Olivia

    Hi everybody! Ex-GB fan here!
    This is a brilliant idea. I love the chat, but I don’t want to give Mr. Train Wreck and his Clinger anymore hits.
    To Paul Bettany fans, I love that man’s (very pale) sexy ass, so no disrespect will be shown to him (or his lovely family)!

    Good morning. Excellent idea and I hope you don’t mind me joining in? Watching GB this year has definitely been an eye-opener and really feels like watching a train crash in slow motion. I’m hanging on by the skin of my nails that he wakes up to himself, sees what a clusterf*ck he’s become and sorts himself out. If he carries on the path he’s currently on, then I dread to think how it’s all going to end.

    Reposting ‘Southern Belle’s post #934 from the other thread, because I thought it was interesting:
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    SouthernBelle @ 12/21/2012 at 11:00 pm

    Madalina is posting on her fb page again. About 4-5 hours ago (the same time the tweet came in about GB’s being at the private/social club) she posted new pics, her Romanian Cosmo spread, her Aldo hair video and a video of Keats’ “La Belle Dame sans Merci.”

    If you don’t remember from what? middle school, the poem is about a knight who has been duped by a woman who is beautiful, erotically attractive, fascinating, and deadly. It has been interpreted by some as Keats’ personal rebellion against the pains of love which he resented, particularly the loss of freedom that came with falling in love.

    It probably means nothing more than MG just discovered the poem; however, I have to think that she sees herself as “a beautiful woman without pity” – a femme fatale.

    Basically, just find it strange that GB’s out partying again at a social club that offers overnight bedrooms, since he’s tired of all that and spends most nights in bed with a good book. LOL — especially since his GF is at the same time promoting herself on her FB. Think she takes her laptop to clubs?

    Merry Christmas, all!

    She appeared on the show alongside presenters Chris Evans and Alex Jones, food critic Jay Rayner and Hollywood megastar Gerard Butler.

    Carol, who loves to cook with daughter Ruby, nine, said: “It’s quite an achievement to say I was sitting next to Gerard Butler and he was cramming my food into his mouth. And when the camera wasn’t rolling he was really stuffing it in!”

  • Good Idea

    Morning! Really happy to see everyone here! I was starting to feel like part of the machine on the GB posts. And, it’s good to see a nice guy like Paul Bettany getting some love; I just looked and this seems to be the highest commented pure-Paul Bettany post on JJ, lol.

    Dayum, wonder what happened to piss these people off? I think Food 4 Thought might’ve called it early: “I’m sure he gets on people’s nerves in clubs all the time. Probably hits on their dates and tries to get free drinks.”

    Seems like he’s on a mission to single-handedly piss off as many of the ticket-buying public as possible. I guess he wasn’t lying when he said he didn’t care about being successful anymore.

  • Side eye

    Morning, rebels! I’m liking this very much. Let’s hope the trolls don’t figure it out, but we know they will…sigh. Anyway, looks like he made a right fool of himself again last night. He seems to need ALL the attention, ALL of the time, so any protestations on his part to the contrary are total bs. It must be quite embarrassing to hang out with him, I would imagine.

  • Cheese Ball

    Greetings all! Brilliant idea. I don’t like the idea of giving his thread any hits, although I can’t stop following the spectacle, lol. I would have paid money to be in that club last night. Sounds like he was looking for a fight or something. He definitely doesn’t seem to want to spend too much time with family, cuz he’s hanging in London ’til the last second before Xmas. I wonder if whatsherface is gone yet? That was an odd time to be posting on fb. At least for London time..

  • GGG

    Great idea to post here and start a little rebellion :)

    After some of the posters said, that GB described MG as “nice” in an interview, I just checked the google news to find that interview. Funny thing is, that the newspapers in Germany translated it with “wirklich toll/großartig”, what would be “absolutely awesome/great”. And more than this they claimed that PFK (the German title will be “Kiss the Coach”) is GBs newest movie HIT…C’mon German press, do your job a little bit more carefully and stop pervert the facts!! That’s how the media influence and fool their audience…

  • http://JJ Bonnie

    I think he is hanging in London because he can’t shake what’s er face off.She probably wants to go to Scotland with him but that would mean he wouldn’t be with family,so they would be wandering again.
    Or else she doesn’t want to leave him in case he brings an end to the arrangement they have.If she was going to Romania surely she should have gone by now.She is scared as his family will talk him into bringing an end to the farce that’s meant to be a relationship.
    He is being a total Pratt

  • Cheese Ball

    @Bonnie: So you think she’s really into him? Because I’m not feeling that at all. She gives off the vibe, to me, that she’s tolerating him, which is probably why many believe this is an arrangement of some type.

  • http://JJ Bonnie

    @Cheese Ball: No I don’t think she is into him she is into what fame he can give her.I totally think its an arrangement.Fame and money is what she wants.

  • Cheese Ball

    @Bonnie: Then she definitely hitched her wagon to the wrong horse, lol. I would think she would see that by now, if she paid any attention to the bombing of the last two films, and the fact their relationship is getting zero press attention. It isn’t working for her at all. It might have worked with LDC. I’d love to ask him a few questions, lol.
