    Really dumping a lot of positive PR to counterbalance his bad boy behavior. I guess his peeps hope he gets to work and away from the temptations till all blows over.

    They should say “Secret Service agent who must foil a terrorist attack on the president’s residence and beds the first lady.”

    Who cares about bad press and his next career-move . . . just look at that face! The man has the most interesting face I’ve ever seen on a man! And what a bonus that he has an incredible body, too. Man, Butler, you’re too much.

    @legends: Good looking people should never get penalties for lousy choices ? So according to you, Only the ugly should. Superficial and low standard fans are becoming the norm for the Butman.

    Obvious Says:

    Jj is trying to put up positive yet of no substance posts. So when people read the article relate him as a Hollywood hunk. Not as another celeb who has major demons to tackle.

    Positives are mostly about his looks.

    why another action movie? Says:

    Okay I don’t get it. He’s slated for three action movies in a row – “Thunder Run”, “Hunter Killer”, “Olympus Has fallen”. I thought he was supposed to have terrible injuries that have left him in chronic pain so horrible he abused pain killers to deal with it? Why would someone with those kinds of pain issues – injuries he received by working on action movies no less – be throwing himself head long into one action film after another? I thought he was in terrible pain?
    Isn’t now the time for him to be doing less action based films? Or perhaps his pain issues aren’t what he lead everyone to believe.

    legends Says:

    @why another action movie?: I agree; it’s almost like Hollywood doesn’t know what to do with him. His films only seem to make money when he’s playing the ‘bada**.’ Too bad – cuz he plays the sensitive side so well.

    Beentheredonethat Says:

    @why another action movie?: Maybe his “pain” was more of the neck variety then the back and he got rid of her!

    legends Says:

    @Whatdouthink: Welllllll, since I, nor YOU, for that matter, really know the man; why not speculate on what we all DO know, and that’s just how physically beautiful he is? Superficial? Yup! Aren’t we allowed to be superficial when it comes to Hollywood actors? As long as we are not that way in our own lives?

    Beentheredonethat Says:

    You know, how can you look at that face and hate the guy when it says, “Hey, baby, you know you still love me, so come to daddy and give me some sugar!”

    Whatdouthink Says:

    @why another action movie?: If pain killers were his issue to enter rehab, I agree that these movies are basically going to put him back to popping. Thinking the same.

    @Obvious: Good looks intensifies the level others perceive of that person’s accomplishments. They socially climb faster also. More is can be forgiven when they have the genetic upper hand. Especially in tinsel town.

    Whatdouthink Says:

    @legends: Do not know the man. Too entertaining on page six to be taken seriously. Confusing really. I guess at the moment the only positive is his looks.

    The Noise In The Walls Says:

    @Legends …Well, it seems to me alot of celebrities have won awards for playing bad*sses…Stretching their range…I don’t think you need to play a sensitive character all the time…especially to applease the audiences..I think Butler would have been a great *Laurent..from the Therese Laquin book..That character had alot of facets…

    He really played well in being a bad*ss in “Shooters” and part of the first scenes in “Machine Gun Preacher”..It showed his versatility and range…
