    He looks fantastic! I love that he opened his mouth for the stupid paparazzi taking his picture eating. Very inappropriate of them. Good for you, Gerry! I would have done the same thing.

  • A

    Remember when he buttfingered Jennifer Aniston? Classy guy.

  • PR

    This place is always teeming with paparazzi and Gerry’s knows it. This was a clever way to counter all the bad publicity lately. A family friendly outing to the Farmer’s Market.

  • Stacie

    Love him . How splendid it is to see Gerry out with his family . What a delight . He’s so sweet and charming . Love him . : )

  • A

    Wait for his crazy psycho fans to come thumbing down all the truthful posts.

  • Grey

    Oh I am sure that his folks appreciated his gross behaviour too. Very rude to be talking on his cell while having lunch with them as well. Unless, of course it was a peace conference with Syria, sure it could have waited an hour. Terrible manners for a grown man. Maybe he should have ordered in instead of putting his folks through all that crap or taken them someplace a little more out of the way if he didn’t want to be noticed. Not impressed.

  • Out-of-Towner

    What is the Farmer’s Market? It looks like a mall. Downtown LA?
    Not cool that the paps ambushed him while on a family outing. Looks like they wouldn’t back off.

  • he is a loser

    This guy has become the biggest disappointment ever. I don’t care what movie they say he is gonna do, whatev, his time has come and gone, his career is already finished with all the dumba ss stuff you read about in the tabs, just a tab clown. he takes his career as seriously as a f art. and I agree with all the objective folks who tell it like it is, and about the foolish fangirls who will shoot you down when you tell em like it is!

  • hmmm

    Horrible bad boy behaviour and not a single decent movie after 300 and Law Abiding Citizen. Now that the new and a lot more ‘talented’ people are coming, his time is up. Just another typical pretty-boy-with-no-talent person

  • Gossipgirl

    I thought I read that his father left the home when he was very young. That may be his mum, but that may not be his father. Anyhow, whatever.

  • janet

    He went to The Grove for lunch. What do you expect? There are paps everywhere and “Extra” even tapes there every day.

  • justsayin’too

    His Mom’s face looks like she is showing stress compared to her premiere pictures for Law Abiding Citizen. I’m sure she has been worried with all this crap going on in his life. On a positive note, he looks to be eating some carbs so maybe he is getting back to eating like a normal person if he has gotten the drugs out of his system. The yo-yo weight loss has taken it’s toll on his handsome face. I hope he gets stable with his weight and fitness and realizes he has to be consistent to keep his health in check.

  • Out-of-Towner

    @Gossipgirl: It’s his stepdad. Nice looking man.

  • a fan

    I noticed Margaret’s appearance, too, but I didn’t want to say anything. The precipitating events that lead to Gerry’s need to go to rehab, were very stressful for his family, I’m sure. No matter how old your children get you never stop worrying about them. Margaret’s youngest child has turned out to be quite a handful! I agree with those who say this particular outing was a photo-op. The Grove is where everyone goes to get papped. There’s nothing innocent about this choice. However, I am happy that his parents are with him right now. Gerry always seems to stabilize when his parents are around. I hate to say it, but Gerry needs adult supervision. LOL

  • bystander

    @a fan: if an arrranged PR op, I’m surprised his parents knowingly joined in. Must have been some pressing need? More likely thoughtlessness or less than a full openness from Gerry?
    Or just an innocent family outing to a place they liked without letting the press affect their enjoyment?
    Does look a bit calculated though.

  • hey there

    This should be titled. “Kindly upscale couple asks homeless vagrant to lunch.”

  • Jessica

    money can’t buy class!

  • Aha….

    He is using his parents to improve his image just as I suspected, he is so predictable. ;)

  • Holly

    Yup, I agree with post # 1. We’re not forgetting Gerry.

  • article
  • …….

    Yet another calculated and cynical ploy to try to show how balanced and normal he is, when he is actually far from it – existing in a twilight world of hangers-on, acquaintances, encounters with total strangers, not forgetting the drug pick- ups.

  • Haha

    He’s way past using his parents to try to improve his image. He went to rehab for 3 weeks and came out only to get caught up in the middle if a scandal (all his own doing may I add!)… people are way smarter and they see through this PR completely. In the end people will remember him for his scandals and etc…. and not his movies . that’s too bad for him. It’s too late to fix it now.

  • gabby from wo

    agree with all of you, this parents outing looks planned date with parents to keep people from thinkng about home-wrecking,
    i posted in the last thread about his mtv friend alicia i think that her being candid was also a ‘favor’ to keep people from even paying attention to this fake adultery accusation.
    i think its always planned with butler. i visited alicia facebook public page and saw there that she has a boyfriend, so gerald is a friend.
    i think janae is probably broke now and trying to get back at butler for not wanting her and so is stalking him and now going public to get public sympathy and some money for her son.
    i really dont want to think of gerard even being with a p/orno star so i just try not to judge and pray on it.

  • Sins

    Do you really think it’s too late to fix the whole participation in adultery thing? Does the homeless po/rn star just want his career and image runined?!?
    It seems like he is trying everything to get people’s mind off it…
    Why can’t the p0rn star just get back on the pole where she came from instead of stalking the guy after he said loud and clear and changed his number I DONT WANT YOU ANYMORE lol he’s entitled to not want some p0rno transsexual anymore, isn’t he?

  • Sins

    The fact that they ate outside is telling.
    They wanted to be seen.
    Anytime he is papped? It’s because he was SUPPOSED to be papped.
    I think his PR flew his parents out to ‘help’ get people talking about anything OTHER than the Janet’s accusations.
    She is disgusting. Hell hath no fury, Gerard…

  • angelsandguns

    He has boobs in that picture. Why hasn’t he gone to the gym??? :(

  • Hell Hath No Fury…

    J Alt won’t stop until Gerard’s entire career/image is leveled.
    She is pissed, broke, divorcing and has nothing to show for her marriage ending fling, except for unanswered phone msgs and embarrassment.
    Do you think she’s going to let Gerard just slide off into oblivion and change his number?

  • Clamsie

    @he is a loser:

    ita. He’s finished, career on life support and he looks like crap most days. We’ll probably hear next that he’s filing for bankruptcy or being sued for child support. Where is his boytoy Freddy Bosch?

  • KiwiGirl (NZ)

    We see through your supposed ‘rehab’, sxsw with your ex, charity appearances and convenient outdoor lunches with your mommy! You did that older married woman wrong and she means business! Maybe he should give her a call to shush her? I do agree this is bad for his career.
    What ‘boytoy?’ Does Gerard dabble?…

  • angelsrock

    I’m not convinced that everything Gerry does is choreographed. I think that’s exactly why he does get into trouble. He does what he darn pleases when he wants to do it. Of course there are times when he has to play the game. He’s a P.R. team’s nightmare. He’s spending some time with his parents and he’s being slammed for that. He admits over and over in interviews that he is a “bad boy”. And still everyone wants him to be the pairfect boyfriend and role model with the highest of standards who’s on a mission to save the world. You need to go find another celeb to swoon over and admire because that is not Gerard Butler and he will tell you that himself. His true fans realize that; they appreciate his hard work and love of making movies. They get a kick out of his antics that are actually rather low on the scale of “being a horrid person.” Of course there are times that we wince and shake our heads. But we take it for what it is and consider that most of the gossip is well just gossip and fabrication. It is quite evident that he disappoints some people. I’ve been a fan since 1995 and the same comments have been made about him since then. Especially the one where his career’s over. He’ll never work again. LOL He’s doing just fine making a decent living making movies. It seems he’s alive and well in Hollywood for at least the next couple of years. Sorry if that just sends you into a frenzy.

  • angelsrock

    Okay, I can’t believe I typed 1995. It’s early give me a break. I meant 2005 after I saw POTO. He wasn’t even working as an actor in 1995 was he?

  • Haha

    @Sins: Its not just the adultery. Its that he concentrates more on partying and having fun then his career when it should be the opposite.I mean he hasn;t had a really good movie since 300. He’s never in a serious relationship and every time they ask him about it he always says that he’s been in 2 or 3 serious ones but he kept them on the down-low. I mean come on how long is he gonna use that excuse ?…. but then again it’s his life and if he wants to ruin it it’s his call. I now some people might get upset over my comments but that’s what I think.

  • RehabRX

    The only relationship he ‘admits’ is Bianca…and maybe because of what his fcking FANS did to her he doesn’t go there any more. Don’t blame him. After reading here recently of what you guys thought of Brandi Alicia and Janea I’m not sure I’d want to be on the receiving end of that either to be honest :(

  • RehabRX

    I don’t think anyone is saying his every move is choreographed at all –
    I think we are saying that just his damage control/clean up PR is choreographed – and you would be stupid to think otherwise.

  • ITA

    The rehab, sxsw/mtvgirl-gate, charity appearance and nice little outing with mom and dad are a little to conveniently clustered and suspect.
    I think his PR team wants us to think about anything, anything at ALL except the fact that some woman – and a married with kids p0rn star which makes it even worse – is claiming she left her husband for Gerard. Only to be tossed aside when she was available. That looks very BAD on him. Very bad, don’t you see that?
    Not even a reality Z-lister puking off his balcony is that bad.

  • um …

    I was just on Alicia’s facebook page. It doesn’t say she has a boyfriend.

  • angelsrock


    I do not call people stupid because I disagree with their opinion and perspective especially about gossip that none of us here knows for certain the details.

  • um …

    This is Alicia’s FB page. There’s no mention of any boyfriend.

  • GerrysGreenEyedWoman

    Been dying to see these to back up the Tweet.
    Ah, a mother’s love. Every person needs it. He’s lucky to still have his. Some of us are less fortunate. A mother’s love is unconditional, supportive and real.
    Feel this man needs all the true honest sincere non-judging love he can find just now. And what better way that to start a new season, spring, with the one woman who never fails him, his mom?!!
    Big and clunky, comfortable in his own gear, Gerry so looks like the child at seven, which we all remain believe it or not. I love these!! These are precious! Thank you, thank you, thank you… these are just what I needed to see. Prayers do get answered. Now, if only he’d head home with them and come back after Easter. [read: might be pushing my luck but if you never ask.... ]

  • Can’tGetEnough

    Good Morning JJer’s! Loved the pics of him with his parents and at first I felt sorry for them being intruded upon by the paps, but I’ve been to the Grove and there is NO privacy there. I think he definitely wanted to be seen! Regardless, I’m glad his mother is there to smack some sense into him. Although, maybe she didn’t smack hard enough? He was off to another party last night:

    Hayden Black ‏ @haydenblack
    Saw more stars tonight than I have in 2 years. James Caan, Bill Murray, Gerard Butler, etc etc etc. Fun premiere/party at Chateau Marmont.
    Kari Mozena ‏ @karimozena
    Made my way over to Chateau Marmont. @Starz prem party for #MagicCity. Show good enough to make me subscribe.
    Kari Mozena ‏ @karimozena
    Gerard Butler and Damien Lewis here. Bill Murray popped by screening but doubt he is in this mob scene.

  • Anastasia Beaverhausen


    Well I suppose Gerard could have called the paps or just accepted that they would be there. Who knows. It obviously hasn’t taken anyone’s mind off of his current scandals. The question would be if he really thought that it would. I’m sure he knows that the public isn’t stupid. Is it possible that more is being read into this lunch with his parents than there really is? (checked for grammar and spelling errors this time!). :)

  • Can’tGetEnough

    @Anastasia Beaverhausen:
    ” Is it possible that more is being read into this lunch with his parents than there really is?”

    Absolutely! Perhaps that is just where his parents wanted to go. But it does make you wonder, with all the negative news about him lately, if he figured being seen with his parents would prompt a ‘good’ gossip article about him for a change. As usual, we can only speculate. I would HOPE that there is nothing more to it, but you just never know in Hollywood!
    BTW, good job on the spelling this morning! LOL =)

  • Anastasia Beaverhausen


    Haha thanks. I was rushing through when posting last night and was mortified at the errors when I looked back at my posts. What you say is very true. :) I’m sure his Mother worries for him too, but he’s a big boy. He makes his own choices. Bad ones it seems like these days.

  • Ella

    Hes compete stupid he shouldve never got involved with a married woman she wasn’t stupid to file for divorce he encouraged her & gave her false hope & then bailed! She was p!ssed as shes left with nothing he’s a coward can’t even confront or tell face to face & has to change his number such an immature man! He knows he looks bad & lost respect of ppl so is trying to act like the doting family boy

  • Sussanne

    He knows exactly how to avoid the paps they never get hold of him with his hook ups, he wanted to be seen if your so bothered about paps you don’t have lunch in full view he wants to show this to distract his latest homewrcking label

  • GerrysFascinatingWoman

    “Hes compete stupid he shouldve never got involved with a married woman she wasn’t stupid to file for divorce he encouraged her & gave her false hope & then bailed!

    Yes, he should have not gotten involved (if it’s true) with a married woman, period. BUT you don’t know what SHE said to encourage him! My guess if ANYONE had “false hope” it was HER for putting herself in an INSTANT RELATIONSHIP when there was no hope for one from the start and if SHE thought so, SHE is “stupid”. What kind of man would want a CHEATER for a partner? Eh? A real question! Besides it wasn’t for all that to begin with and SHE knows it. She thought having sex with him meant more than, well, having sex with him like most dumb women who know nothing about life! I think HE did her husband a FAVOR!!

  • GerrysFascinatingWoman

    Right he does know how to avoid the paps same like Jared can avoid posting the photo of him with his mouth open. From the hate vibes here no wonder he rides off the grid so much! I’m proud of him being with his parents. I don’t find it a stunt at all.
    It’s nearly Easter (and Mother’s day isn’t far off and no one knows their plans) plus he has family on the west coast for God’s sake!
    If they came over from the east coast to see their son, what’s he to do… say no my fans will call me a manipulator of press? Hell, no, he’s going to be seen with them because he wants to! You people are really morbid-minded and so out of focus. You’re too angry to care.

  • GerrysFascinatingWoman

    The only thing I’m annoyed with is his talking on his cell at lunch! LOL Really, turn it off for 30 minutes to eat in peace! I doubt anything is that important it can’t wait!

  • GerrysFascinatingWoman

    @Hell Hath No Fury…:
    LOL, You’re kidding right? Like who the hell is she anyway? If not for him she’s be well, whoever she was before… a nobody! Oh, wait… she still IS a nobody!
