    @final thought: “The two questions that Mr. Butler perhaps should now consider at this point in his life/career are, ‘What do I want to be remembered for?’ What am I willing to do/sacrifice to get it?

    I hope he chooses wisely for his sake, his mama’s and all those who love him”

    Ok Ma. I’ll do the dishes next time.

    Gerry looks healthy. Face soft, fuller and he looks pulled together.

    A bit distracted (by the video) trying do walk and read/access data/text at the same time. Who wouldn’t be? For once I agree with Astrology. He’s handling the intrusion well. I respect that.

    Don’t feel this is PR at all. The other stuff has gone quietly away… and for everything a reason. His involvement with this charity function isn’t news. He might know Robbie. I love Robbie Williams’ music. I own everything he has. He’s a genius who many simply do not get. My email address is from one of his songs.

    Gerry will appear at Soccer Aid on May 27.
    The DVD release date for “Coriolanus” is May 29.
    I’m sure that’s just a coincidence.

    It’s exactly the opposite. It’s all about people. They make the world thrive, and the world exists for people, no one else.
    The problems with her quote is that the people with ideas have wacky notions they try to push on all of us. “Think tanks” that never develop anything useful except try to lobby politicians to take more of our liberties away.

    Get some wisdom. Just because Eleanor Roosevelt said it, it doesn’t mean you should repeat it without thinking about the real meaning behind it.

    I’m wondering when Butler hired Kris Jenner to do his PR. This is just like Kim Kardashian’s dash to Haiti when she was getting scoured in the press. You would hope that Alan could do a little better… Maybe if Butler pulled a puppy out of a busy street??? I’m joking… well sort of…

    This is a “golden opportunity” for Gerard to do damage control and promote his DVD. His PR is hard at work.

    Great posts. Thinking the same. Thanks guys.

  • Saddie

    He probably shouldn’t even be driving with the meds usually prescribed for addiction problem. But then this is Butler we’re talkin about.
    .
    At this point I am worried about this man’s mental state. Not quite Charlie Sheen but well on his way there. Don’t know much about what’s really going on in his life but the women he has been linked to sort of give a glimpse of how empty he must be feelling inside. He needs to start to seek out quality rather than quantity when picking female companions.
    .

    His performance in Coriolanus shows how talented he can be given the right direction. I for one will be forever grateful to Ralph Fiennes for casting him in his movie. His raw talent is a terrible to go wasted and HW needs to wake up and he himself needs to pull together.

  • niknoks

    He gets hammered for being shallow, then he signs up for a charity event and gets hammered for that too…. seems like some just want to have a go regardless of what he does…

  • Mellie

    Drugs, partying and random hookups. That is ALL I can think about when I see this guy now. I’ve been a fan since POTO but not anymore. I’m so tired of him and his antics.
    .
    I remember back in 2005 when a woman who worked at the hotel that Gerry used to stay at when he was in LA (he didn’t have a LA home then), the Sunset Marquee, told the IMDb members that Gerry was having an affair with a the wife of a hotshot Hollywood producer. She used to sneak into his hotel room and sometimes leave very early in the morning, probably when her husband was away somewhere. The woman who worked at the hotel found a pic of the wife and posted it. It was a quite average looking brunette. Nothing special. I can’t remember her name but the picture was from a movie premiere.
    .
    Gerry does not have second thoughts about being involved with married women, not then and not now.

  • Manny

    @niknoks:
    .
    I agree and disagree. The timing of the announcement is, well, convenient. I haven’t seen any publicity on this side of the pond for this event or any of its celebrity participants except for Butler and nothing until now.
    .
    But that being said, it may have been the event that released the information of his participation.
    .
    It just makes one wonder. :)

  • niknoks

    @Manny:

    Has there ever been much publicity for this event on your side of the pond? This is the fourth time they’ve done it. Also, it’s not as if they’ve just announced GB, his name was announced with 4 or 5 others that signed up at the same time. Are they all having a PR crisis too?
    -
    As it has been every other time they have done this event, names will be announced regularly right up until the event itself. It’s an event that’s always attracted big names.

    @Mellie:
    Gerry also had an affair with a married woman at the Ischia film festival in 2005. Her name is Eleonora Brigliadori.

    Yay! (goalie arms) Gerry makes the top row at Just Jared! Actions, in this business, speak louder than words!

    whose loving that soft face and clearly focused eyes (minus the pic showing contempt) unsure how people in the pubic eye handle it thinking most of this simply ugly gossip!!!

  • bystander

    @final thought: great post, no18.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    Manny, Mike Myers and Will Ferrell have signed up also. Three goofy guys, it ought to be interesting who will do the most stunts. Gerry might be the most serious of the three becuase it takes playing so seriously.

  • niknoks

    @lolita:

    Mike Myers played in the last one too, he’s a pretty decent player.

    @Eleonora:
    Yep, and her husband was right there at the festival with her. Gerry has no morals. I think he even said that himself.

    I guess sleeping with married women is his version of the casting couch. Who knows what he’s really done to get ahead no wonder sex means nothing to him………..Damn and I wanted to hit that!!!!!!!

  • niknoks

    @lolita:

    They goofed around in training a lot, but when it came to the game everyone took it quite it quite seriously. There is a bit of national pride at stake.

    Nope there hasn’t been any PR for the event over here that I have seen in the past and lately. I’m not saying this was a PR stunt, but it does make me wonder on the announcement over here. We’ll just have to wait and see if anything else is announced before the event.
    .
    The event does sound like fun for the fans that attend.
    .
    BTW how is Maggie?

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @niknoks: Good for Mike that he does take it seriously. I have a question off topic. Sunday is Mother UK day, is that your Mother’s Day there. It was marked on my calendar at work.
    I know Gerry will try and score a goal, it would mean so much to him as with all the other players.

  • Manny
  • FYI

    @lolita:
    Mike Myers is Canadian.

  • niknoks

    @Manny:

    It is great fun, but from what I’ve seen of the other Soccer Aid games, there is not much room or tolerance for self promotion. The run-up to the game is purely about the cause itself. There aren’t that many interviews done either and if there are they are very short as there is upwards of 40 celebs/pros taking part.

    Maggie is great, she graduates, providing she passes her final tests, at the end of next month, we’re so proud. They’re are having a ceremony and everything.

    Are you going to the game? Unfortunately the only celebrity anything here is Sundance and it is all about self-promotion. Years ago when we lived in Colorado we went to a celebrity ski event in Aspen. It was fun watching the event but the charity really took a backseat to the celebs… kind of just an excuse for celebs to get together for some free skiing.

  • niknoks

    @Manny:

    I won’t be going to the game, if it was at Wembley I would, but it’s in Manchester, funnily enough, my home town, but it’s on a Sunday, getting up and back for work would be a nightmare.

  • angelsrock

    Where is Gerard’s married p0rn star?

  • GerrysGreenEyedWoman

    Manny, you need more of a life. You do. That “happily married” one you keep trying to pawn off on us isn’t working. No one “happily married” would be here like you are constantly and for years and years, why? You clearly have disdain for Butler. What’s your point? You’re involvement in these strangers lives is queer and so very sad.

    hoping the hiring of his Brilliant co-star goes well who’d love to see Natalie P in the slot… who is SO happy life, in its magic, has move Gerry forward like he keeps moving himself…
