Gerard Butler: Art of Elysium Paradis Party!

Gerard Butler suits up in Dolce&Gabbana for IWC‘s Filmmakers Dinner held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Monday (May 21) in Antibes, France.

The 42-year-old actor met up with model Karolina Kurkova and her fiance, Archie Drury, along with IWC CEO Georges Kern, inside the event.

The night before, Gerard (wearing Calvin Klein Collection) came out to support The Art of Elysium‘s Paradis party during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

Guests enjoyed cocktails, light bites, and a gaming area with Hollywood Domino, while listening to tunes spun by DJ Mike Nouveau and DJ Kayper.

    Happy to see him looking so happy. Sounds as though he has accomplished all he needed to for Motor City and White House Taken to get them moving. Good luck to you, Butler! Looking forward to more from you on the big screen later this year.

    He’s summoned himself on to another phase. Then comes the day that make like worth living, like this. Love the thumbs up photo back at the other thread hoping the watermarks get removed and the set enlarged. Grand viewing for Butler fans this weekend!
    -
    His face holds promise. Sometimes his look seems to say, “Do you love me the way I am?” And then it’s as though he’s suddenly everybody’s.
    -
    As for his recent work with Machine Gun Preacher and Coriolanus he sunk his soul into those characters and left a lasting impression. Anyone who saw either would be fibbing to not agree.

    It looks like Gerry has a new model hanging all over him, Karolina Kurkova. This one I don’t like. She is too obvious when the others have been subtle. Look at her constantly touching him.

    @Manny:

    I agree. Why the decadent parties? How about a beer and a hot dog and homemade brownies for dessert? Most of the proceeds then go to the charity. I do realize that they have auctions, too, which helps with the fundraising. But these “galas” seem totally unnecessary.

    Nice hair here; no stylist to blow dry it poofier and straighter. I’m going to miss the hair discussions. But it has to go soon.

    Is it just me or is she wearing a ring on her engagement finger?

  • Partying & Shaggging

    I am starting to think he’s back on drugs. I noticed him sniffing in this video at about point 0.33. Just doesn’t look that good to me. But I hope I am totally mistaken.

    Totally agree. Just read almost 13 per cent of young people worldwide are out of work with little prospect of the situation improving according to the International Labour Organisation.  So depressing. In this climate I do find those lavish charity events repugnant.  What is so  wrong with a few  burgers and beers.

    Seems he has yet another model butlerized. The one in the red dress, Petra Nemcova. I can’t keep up with all his models and after awhile they all look alike and their names all sound the same.

    Great to see Ewan with his elegant wife.
    Now there’s a stunning lady, professionally accomplished, happily married and with a lovely family. Far more beautiful than any fame hungry vacuous model. Some Scotsmen have good taste.

    N says she decided on a black dress just ad MG pictures emerge in black, and says she’s engaged just as hmmm sees an engagement ring.

    Yes, but it’s not what people expect. It won’t be considered classy if you serve “cheap” food. Practicality should win here, but it will never fly with this crowed with deep pockets. No way no how! They want luxurious parties in luxury and opulence and you just can’t serve hot dogs and homemade brownies for dessert.

    You honestly think MG is engaged to GB?

  • oy vai

    Petra Nemcova and Karolina Kurkova have been long time friends of Gerry. Petra has been on and off and apparently back on with Sean Penn. I believe Karolina and Archie have a child together. What do you look like when you are out with friends, male and female and having a good time?

    What is interesting in the one series of photos, Gettyimage? Gerry has his arm around everyone he is posing with, male and female, young or old, except Ms. Ghenea. Is that “we want to keep a secret so don’t do anything too chummy ” pose except that is not his usual body language with even perfect strangers, including fans or is that we are being forced to take this photo together and we hate each other and let’s get this over with or something in between. Curious.

  • bystander

    Unlike his informality with Petra and ?Karolina (I’ve forgotten the names already!) his stance with Madalina seems contrived to look unattached, to me.

  • bystander

    No way! Just wondering about who N is,or is t rying to be.

    Costume jewellery.It was on her other finger at the lawless premiere in the photo’s.

  • Partying & Shaggging

    @bystander:
    I wouldn’t call her elegant, but she is modest and that’s a very good quality; none of that boobs out business and dresses that practically show your vadge, as some of the other women were wearing. I haven’t seen one dress I liked today. That said, she could have put on a little bit more of an elegant dress for this affair. She appears to have a niece slim figure, but I guess her husband dressed down as well so they matched each other. I think they are both modest and unpretentious people and in that regard they make an excellent match. But I hardly think a woman like her would be right for Gerard. Not that I think he should marry the sluuty outrageous ones either. I think a mix of both would be right for him. A beautiful and elegant woman who is also modest and down to earth would do him good. Maybe she’s a model maybe not, doesn’t matter, as long as she is not focused on her career too much. He needs to be the center of her attention. Sure looks like Ewan’s wife has put everything aside to raise their kids so he could keep making movies and earning a nice living. Sure is a nice setup for a man ready to settle down.

    I’m not sure I would wish Butler on any woman at this point. He is a little too self absorbed to do that to anyone IMO.

  • cupccake

    Only time will tell if there is anything happening between. Mg and gb. Let’s see what happens the rest of the week if he still sticks around. Maybe she will be at soccer aid maybe when that’s done he will fly back to milan? Who knows with this guy. If anything does go on I give it three months.

  • Partying & Shaggging

    @Manny:
    For some reason the link won’t open but I read the headlines on it, Ewan was cheating on his wife. That’s just dandy. Are there any male celebs nowadays able to keep their vows, or is the fame and fortune makes them think they should shag every woman?
    .
    @@Hmmm:
    I finally saw the ring(s) in question and it’s really hard to tell what they are. They could be custom jewelry, a simple diamond ring, or something more special like an engagement ring. We need more photos to make a better determination.

  • Whatshedonenow

    Think he’s definately playing around with MG, hence that overly fake ” we don’t really know each other pose” from him, and her “yeah right I’ll play along” pose. But I reckon they’ll both happily pork anyone else that takes their fancy. Match made in heaven really. Who reckons if she was at an event where Butler and Fassbender were, she’d drop Butler like a bag of cold sick. You can tell that is one shallow shallow chick. Oh again a match made in heaven.

  • Partying & Shaggging

    @Manny:
    “If he is sniffing around DeCaprio’s sloppy seconds shows he has such high standards…”
    .
    Agreed! I can’t believe he would date her seriously. I think if they are together right now it’s just a quick fling. This way it’s not like taking DeCaprio’s sloppy seconds, just tasting what he had. Women in showbiz get passed around and it’s very hard to say no if you want to get ahead. Not that I am saying Gerry has a casting couch. I think in his case the women flock – single or married, young and old alike. He really doesn’t have to try that hard to attract most females. Casting couches are used by men that don’t get any and need to use some coercion.

  • bystander

    @Partying & Shaggging: the article, by a reputable journalistic outlet ‘stupid celebrities’ made that allegation in the basis of a few hand holding photos with a costar on a cold night. I know nothing of Ewan other than his reputed solid home life and that he keeps his family private, but if the same was said about gb on such evidence would half assume it accurate, and the other half dis the reportor?

  • Partying & Shaggging

    @bystander:
    Good I am glad you told me that because I really don’t believe anything these tabloids say, unless I see proof. I could read it anyway because it wouldn’t open for me. Anyway, he definitely seems to have a nice home life. I never heard anything bad about him, until this article which I can’t even open.

    BTW, is he living in LA now, or back in Scotland?

    If you click on the first picture it will open in a new window and then just scroll to pic #19. You can see her, but you can’t see her fingers. She has a bracelet on that looks like custom. Then Gerry comes up as #26. The last few pics are of Petra and her jewels were photographed. Maybe MG didn’t have any worthy jewelry to photograph lol.

  • Whatshedonenow

    Basically said the MG chick doesn’t come across as the virginal type you take home to meet mummy.

    An aside… Never know what to make of Sean Penn. A great actor. Very passionate about worthy causes, but seems to have a very poor attitude to women. 

    Maybe that’s a running theme amongst a lot, NOT ALL, HW actors, they really don’t seem to like women that much. Maybe because they’ve come across more than their fair share of beautiful unpleasant ones. Who knows.

  • Manny
  • So fake

    @Whatshedonenow: I’m laughing at how hard she poses. Very exaggerated stances. Looks fairly ridiculous.

  • Whatshedonenow

    @ so fake

    I know. She does come across as being rather ridiculous.  It’s a shame because she’s a beautiful girl. But that’s essentially what she is — a girl. But you know how Butler like his silly shallow chickadees.

  • So fake

    @Whatshedonenow: I actually suspect all these models are being paid to dress up the place. To drape themselves over any random actors or moguls. They are providing the clothes and glamour. Otherwise it would just be a bunch of paunchy old European moneymen hanging around and posing for pictures with each other. She’s glued herself to GB because he’s a pap target. Keep an eye out to see if she moves on to someone else in the next few days.
