Gerard Butler - amfAR Cannes Gala 2012

Gerard Butler - amfAR Cannes Gala 2012

Gerard Butler suits up for the 2012 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala on Thursday (May 24) at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France.

The 42-year-old Scottish actor (in Dolce&Gabbana) came out to support the event, which was held during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival to raise funds for AIDS research.

Gerard recently told the Associated Press why he’s avoiding premieres during this year’s festival.

“You can’t really go down other people’s press lines,” he explained. “You have to make sure you’re politically correct. It’s a bit of a bummer.”

Also pictured inside: Adrien Brody, who attended de Grisogono‘s Glam Extravaganza party the night before.

    hOh oh ohoh an other post on butler!

    No matter how many posts there will be! Butler you are a creepy color hair and stop surgery/botox

  • illwill

    @babasama: Botox? Do you not see the wrinkles on his forehead?

  • ConserveWater

    Handsome in a tux, but I wish he trimmed his hair a little and shaved his neck.

  • max

    I liked his short hair days (ugly truth, law abiding citizen), why does he keep it long like this?

  • ConserveWater

    @max: Easy. No maintenance. But he will need to change for his next few roles. He is probably milking the look since it is so easy.

  • noni

    Cat Deeley said she’d be talking to Gerard and Jason Isaacs on tomorrow night’s Soccer Aid show. (Friday) Also Robbie Williams and Mark Owen.

  • ConserveWater

    Funny how Ger likes his women well maintained, understated and loyal yet he is just the opposite. Double standard.

  • Gossipgirl

    @ConserveWater: No, Butler has no taste in women, he’s happy as long as they are up for a bonk anywhere, including porta-potties like at Coachella. I have never seen him in photos at an event with a well groomed date.

  • ze

    will it kill you to shave gerry? your face getting a bit boring. if you are not even interested to show that you are slightly interested than bugger off! you are in a public eyes now, your soul have been sold to us. So, I command you to bloody shave for a change and cut those boring hair, it look great when you were in your 20′s, grow bloody up! Love from your biggest fan in Asia

  • Booo

    Noni…what channel and what time will Gerard be with Cat? I hope I can see it. I love Gerard with long or short hair…but I prefer his dark, dark locks….And…in the poster for “Olympus/White House….why don’t they let his eyes be their gray,green,blue color…In this poster and in those ads he did, his eyes looked broown.

    I would think the shorter hair is easier! I am actually looking forward to the shorter hair.

  • AmFm

    Unlike some of you I am totally in love with his current hair style, parted in the middle to give a little wisp of hair on the sides. As long as he does a good job shaving his neck he looks fresh and clean. I think he looks great.

  • cupccake

    He will always look great no matter what.

  • kelly

    omg he makes me melt when hes all dressed to the nines i agree he should have shaved but still rocking the tux (is it hot in here ?)

  • AM

    Isn’t his natural hair color very dark brown…?

  • aimee

    Just a thought but at every event in Cannes where Gerry and Madalina have been,Adrian Brody isn’t far behind.Maybe Gerry is the cover..just sayin’.

  • redcurlygirl

    Yup…guess who’s there as well
    Actually from all the pics, who do you think he’ll go after?

  • Madalina

    The youngest one!

  • JustSayin’

    @Madalina: And that would probably be Kate Upton who is 19. Hope not.

  • mia

    G’s natural hair color these days is grey.

  • mustang sally

    Excellent tux . . .<3

  • AM

    HAHA I think you are correct..grey it is!!

  • Toronto

    Yeah. Gerry is probably almost completely grey. I remember a soccer match from last year, he had more than an inch of grey roots all over his head. I think it would look beautiful if he let himself go grey. Especially with his eye colour. But what he SHOULDN’T do it go back to that awful, too dark, Caeser (spelling?) like, boarderline crew cut. Not the most flattering look again his face. I prefer this current look to that….any day.

  • yoyo
  • :-D

    garrehzvhp3: Oh my… Gerard Butler just stopped by to give me kisses and a sexy spanking. What’s a girl to do…

  • Stacie

    Gerry is looking Spot on Hot as Hell . My word just Beautiful . thanks JJ for posting .

  • old girlfriends

    Wonder if it’s awkward when he attends these events, and runs into one old hook-up after another? Does he look at them quizzically, like maybe they look a little familiar? Or does he look right through them and hurry on by, with his tail between his legs.

  • & rejected women

    Did Kardashian and Kanye steal the show – did you see their lovely dovey display on TMZ? Probably made Gerard want to barf, made me throw up just a little. Kanye is the career that hurting?

  • bystander

    Getting into socceraid mood with a few PTF photos. Mmmm, can you imagine running your leg up that inner calf and thigh?
    When is it released again? Maybe a relatively watchable interlude in s glut of childish macho action dross.

  • Chloe

    Let’s be honest here. Gerry is at a great party tonight and he is looking HOT and ready to rumble. There are plenty of young gorgeous women there and he might be interested in one special one. Why is that bad in the eyes of some here? I hope he meets someone young and fresh and starts dating her for real. I think it’s truly what he needs to help him grow up emotionally and focus on his work.

  • lorna

    You already posted this.

  • Hmm…

    GFW said she would leave and that her last post was on the other thread. I wonder if she’ll be able to stay away…

    “The dress also got the thumbs up from my friend of many words Gerard Butler, who fessed up to missing London. Gerry has also worked for Haggis’s Haiti charity Artists for Peace and Justice and gamely agreed to be auctioned off as a prize. A date with him went for a cool ¤100,000; steep, even by Cannes standards.”

  • noni

    @socceraid on ur way to Cannes airport!! Next stop London hotel and ROW headquarters!! Gerard is ready for action!!/NickyHolender

  • Can’tGetEnough

    Good Morning JJer’s! Here are all the pics of GB from last night’s event, courtesy of GALS:

  • Brie

    @Hmm…: I’m 100% certain that she never left.

  • Come to think of it

    Not much to say bad when he endorses so much for charity. He is a desent man. And easy on the eyes.

  • ?

    Look at the table number in post 26 and 36, partly obscured in one. Looks like Madalina was sitting next to Gerry and David and then Alan took her seat for the photo, or vice versa. Butler and MG definitely together.

  • Brie

    @?: The long-term outlook for these two isn’t great. And quite frankly, she is too young, imo. That’s what his type go for, and it will always be so. It’s primal. I do think they are “seeing” each other, and may have been for several weeks if the NYC reports are true. The foreign press is definitely reporting a romance between them, and they are trying too hard in the pics not to seem intimate. But it’s there, clearly. .

  • MissThing

    I wonder if she was the mystery brunette in the club a few weeks ago in LA??

  • angelsrock


    Nothing says more than a traditional black tuxedo!! And Gerry sports it quite well indeed!!

  • Bizarro

    It’s so obvious she is the current piece. Why bother hiding it? She has been his date to every event he’s attended in Cannes. I can see not wanting to po the fans by getting married, or coming out, etc., but hiding dates? It’s weird behavior.

  • cupccake

    Let’s see if these two can be faithful to each other. She is very beautiful and ambitious that is agood quality to have. I just hope it doesn’t get in the way. Who knows what she is like in private. She doesn’t look fun or vivacious. She poses way too much. As if she poses on demand not natural.she looks as if she has agenda. I think she achieved it gerry.

  • The real couple is –

    LB and MG not GB and MG.

  • The real couple is –

    No, I do not agree she the “current piece” (read: how base can you get)?
    My attempt at socking failed. I’m no good at it. I am myself. But need to say the light in MG’s eyes beside Mr. Bender is apparent he is her new target. She looks rather blah (or is that straight face they’re taught to hold) but a bit unhappy on the red carpet but not next to Mr. Bender. Maybe it’s because these rakes are always hungry? LOL
    back to spring cleaning hoping Gerry has a great time and no one gets hurt playing soccer/football and it is super to hear he’s been missing London!

  • Whatshedonenow


    I think they are “together”, but  to him that means as long as she’s in his eye line. Once she’s not in his range he’ll be off porking something else. She’s already looking at bit weary off it all in some pictures and it’s only been maybe a few days. Guess starphuuking ain’t all it’s cracked to be …eh.  Dear Madelina should learn to keep her lovely long  leg crossed more often. Now all the people of influence who came to the festival  know she’s easy. So if she wants to be an actress, she’s gonna have a helluva a lot trouble getting roles unless she’s ready to put out. She’s  now got the rep of being no better than a high class escot. Stupid stupid stupid girl.
