Gerard Butler: Soccer Aid for UNICEF!

Gerard Butler shows off his sports skills as he participates in the celebrity Soccer Aid football match for UNICEF on Sunday (May 27) held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England.

Bend it like Butler!

The 42-year-old actor, who graciously played for a good cause, was joined by dozens of stars including Edward Norton, Mike Myers, Will Ferrell, and James McAvoy.

The event, which featured Hollywood stars and soccer legends, was a huge success as it helped raise $6.46 million for the charity.

Despite the good match, there were some intense moments during the game as both Will Ferrell and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay were injured during the match and taken off the field.

    Been away all day to find Gerry is taking M home to Mum! I had a feeling he would. He has a glow.

    This could be the one. Not the choice his fans would have made for him,
    probably not Mum’s choice, but if Gerrys happy so what. I also have a gut feeling this has already gone further than we imagine. Her Fb and tweety slips may be a sanctioned campaign to introduce the prospect to the public domain?

    Excited to see what happens next. Good luck to them!

    Think you’re right. Good luck to them I say.

  • LOL

    @Whatshedonenow:
    “If she’s in Scotland with him. He’s fallen for her hard, and reckon it’s love. Good on the girl if she gets the ring. hehehe.”
    .
    ITAWY! If she manages to get him to the altar, good for her. Actually, if anyone could achieve this is someone young and gorgeous like Madalina. Now, if she also has a good personality and she is gentle, good-hearted, and compassionate like he likes his women to be, then it’s a match made in heaven.
    .
    Anyway, I told you all he likes young women, no on listened. Everyone was hoping hope against hope he might find an older woman acceptable. Almost everyone hoped she’d be the one to catch him. Of course, that wasn’t realistic. What would he want with 47-year olds? Yes, he does the older woman too from time to time, as long as she looks good, but only as a quickie when he needs sex. He will never consider such a woman GF or marriage material. Can you even compare Brandi to Madalina? There is no contest. In addition, Madalina is the best he had so far look-wise, and I think also personality-wise. Well, maybe she is ambitious as some of you claim, but no one knows for sure. You are all speculating it’s what she is. Maybe she is willing to end her career to be married to him and the two of them will be a team? They can be a force to be reckoned with in HW. A power couple. The only thing I don’t understand about this relationship is what you said before, why would he make his GF/wife a woman that’s been with his friends already? Does he possess any male pride? The only thing I could come up with is this article where she says her and Leo was just a PR thing. So either she didn’t have sexual relations with Leo, or maybe GB is also just PR? Did anyone consider Madalina PR? Maybe he agreed to hang out and be seen with her, so her name rises in the press while she dates him for a while and has sex with him as an exchange, why not? I wouldn’t put anything past any HW relationship ever. These people are pros at propaganda and PR.

    OMG! She is so gorgeous. More beautiful than Angelina Jolie, Monica Bertocci (whatever her name is), and Sofia Loren put together. I will link the other articles in the next post.

  • LOL

    @bystander: @Whatshedonenow:
    You two ladies have a very open mind and it’s refreshing. At least you are not speaking ill of her for being “too young” for him. If it’s what he likes then more power to him. Many men would love to date women 15-20 years younger. It’s a fact of life. He is hot, rich and famous; he can make that dream come true for himself better than any other ole average man who would like to but doesn’t have the means to make it happen. I think his mum will be thrilled that her son is with a beautiful fresh face who makes him happy. What mother wouldn’t? Most mothers want their sons to get the best catch they could get and that always means younger women because they are prime choice.

  • Madalina

    He is with her in this palce. it’s a very romatic place. She is getting to know his family there.

  • Toronto

    @LOL: Agreed. She is the most beautiful woman I ‘ve seen GB with to date. I tip my hat to him! And the haters need to stop saying she looks like a trannie. She doesn’t, IMO.

  • karma is a b…

    The whole thing is super skeevy. The huge age difference, the fact that she’s already “dated” two other middle-aged Hollywood manhoes, and one of them a close friend of GB! Yuck. That’s too close for comfort.
    I think it would be the ultimate irony, if the player gets played. If she uses him and dumps him, it would be karma for sure. Good luck to them is right, they will need it. She’s probably angling for a film role right now.

  • summer begins

    I checked out WO and saw the tweets about Loch Lomond, didn’t see anything about having any one with him though.

  • Comic Relief

    @??..:

    I didn’t see any tweet mentioning that he had anyone with him. Loch Lomond isn’t that far from Paisley. Are you just assuming?

  • remember

    that the crazy poster who kept saying Gerry was going to marry some Scottish lass, that was funny and amusing but annoying after a while, was that guido?

    ah keep spinning the romantic fiction, some of you are letting your phanny-ness slip or Harlequin romance obsessions

    you think if he was with some high maintenance Romanian model in high heels and full makeup trying to hike the bonny hills of Scotland no one is going to mention her [unless he has a roll of bills in his pocket at all times to pay people off] especially in Scotland where they love to goss about their boy

  • Comic Relief

    @LOL:

    You have GOT to be a guy and a very misogynist one at that!

  • bystander

    @LOL: but I am! I do think she’s too young, calendar wise. Crikes she’s my daughters age and I’d be murderous if he turned up here.
    But maybe in reality they are of a similar maturity. Similar religious background. Similarly attractive. Similarly ambitious. Similar sexuality. Similar social circle.
    I will be of a differing opinion if he is just scr*wing her on his journey to the next one. That wouldn’t be fair on the girl. Like Jenae. But as there’s a possibility/rumour/suspicion this is more.,yes,an open mind. It’s much easier to be positive when its a encouraging possibility, rather than Yet more sleaze.

  • LOL

    Here is the article. I copied it in case you can’t get the translation. OK, I made a mistake. She is not calming it was PR with Leo. She is actually denying it was PR saying it was the real thing. Now, I wonder did Gerry do any Google search on her? LOL! Where is his male pride? It sounds to me like she went public with the Leo affair after the fact. Maybe she got hurt by him. Sounds like it.
    .
    “Madalina Ghenea gave an exclusive interview with TV Cancan, which will be broadcast Thursday night on Kanal D. in Rome on filming a new movie, beautiful Romanian told her story of love with Leonardo DiCaprio was not an arrangement PR.
    Even if never directly admitted that they were together, Madalina hinted in the interview that something still happened between her and actor.
    “PR arrangements are very difficult to do at this level and is very difficult to prepare a scenario like that. It is easily programmed shooting stars on the balcony of this caliber.

    @Toronto:

    So you think just because she is beautiful she’s a good match for him?
    -
    I think some of you are getting a bit carried away here. The first we’ve heard about MG was just in the last few days. And the fact that he’d take her home to meet Mum so soon is rather ludicous isn’t it?
    -
    I realize some of you live for this sort of thing but unless this has all been a whirlwind romance kept under wraps for quite a while, I don’t see it.

  • Русская

    @Cholita: Thank u Cholita! :)

  • justsayin’too

    Only time will tell if they are really together. She is beautiful and feminine looking which is a nice change for the Butler. I read an article where she talked about working for the past 10 years to get to this level and not wanting to be known as someones girlfriend, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out as she is as ambitious as he is. They make a handsome couple but career wise I think it will be too full of conflict for the spotlight.

  • Whatshedonenow

    @Lol

    Let’s not go that far. My instincts tell me she’s a dodgy famewh**re, but she’s a beautiful one that I think he’s fallen for hard. So I wish them luck, because being in love is a wonderful thing, but not with a person you can’t really trust. And beneath both their lovely exsteriors belays very strong qualities of duplicity, vainity, selfishness, shallowness and untrustworthiness. So on the surface they may look gorgeous, but underneath if they stay together and I don’t think it will be pretty. Let’s hope they’re kind and respectful to each other, the way two grown up decent people who geniunely care for one another try very very hard to be.

  • LOL

    @Toronto:
    Hi.
    Yes she is beautiful. Look, if she makes him happy, good for them. I can’t be sad. I am happy for him. I think it will do him good to fall in love and get married; settle down. Especially, marry someone that in his mind is a prize. Otherwise, he might cheat one day. I think he needs someone fabulously beautiful and sexy to keep him interested, as well as someone with the right personality like he likes her. He often says he likes kind-hearted women. This also means someone not too ambitious. Someone who is more interested in being his woman than achieving fame.
    .
    I just hope he is serious and not going to hurt her. If they are both playing the same game and have an arrangement great. But if he is thinking she is good for temporary relief, then I feel bad for her. I hope she knows how to play the game. He sure does. This man is a shark. Watch out! I hope she can handle a man like him, but I doubt it because she didn’t know how to handle Leo. Well, Leo is worse user than GB. Leo has no conscience, GB does. Anyway, it’s too early to tell what their relationship is really about, but if he takes her to Scotland to meet the family I would say, it definitely has the signs of seriousness to it.

  • Comic Relief=Eve

    Here we go again with the angry older woman that has no chance in hell with him. Get over it you beetch!

  • Toronto

    @Русская: I never said that; all I said was that MG is beautiful and doesnt look like a trannie. I have no clue if they’re a good match. I don’t know them, obviously. YES, I do think she’s a bit too young for him. But, if that’s what he prefers…that’s what he’s gonna go for.

  • Comic Relief

    @justsayin’too:

    So she’s been working hard to get to this level since about age 13? That is a very goal oriented girl!

  • LOL

    @Comic Relief:
    “You have GOT to be a guy and a very misogynist one at that!”
    .
    What an idiot. Aren’t you the same idiot poster that always claims I got to be a misogynist guy? LOL!!! If telling the truth regarding how men think means I am a guy, so be it. LOL! I rather be a guy, than be a stupid old woman who has problems accepting reality when it hits her straight in the face. Go seek psychological help, you need it. You have emotional issues because you can’t deal with men wanting younger women more than older ones. It’s a fact. Deal with it. Oh and BTW, it has nothing to do with how mature he is. ALL men, if they can get the younger woman, especially one as gorgeous as MG is, will go for it. It has nothing to do with their maturity level. It has to do with their hormones.

  • Whatshedonenow

    LOL

    Ah alas if only it were that simply, beauty and youth fade very quickly. So going by your theory that chick’s sell by date is bearing down on her fast. Oh Lordy, and she only just managed to get the Loch.

  • Toronto

    @Comic Relief: Sorry, I hit the wrong reply. My last answer was for you.

    Let me add…..I just want GB happy. That is all.

    @Comic Relief=Eve:

    Whats the matter? When ever someone makes more sense then you do and you can’t intelligently articulate a rebutal, you come out with the name calling and accusing people of being some Eve person, whom obviously did a number on you at one time.

    You can’t hide behind a sock, LOL. You’re too obvious.

    Yes she got kicked out of her high school for posing in racy lingerie when she was around 15 or 16. There was an article on the internet about it, here is the link but not sure of the sources if it is true or not.

    @bystander:
    Well, I am sure if it were your daughter you’d freak out. Good for you; you are an active mother and feel like you have a right to speak your mind. Many parents just don’t get involved and I think that’s a mistake. But if you found out that he is your daughter’s choice, and he loved her for real and she loved him for real, and they were good and right for each other, I highly doubt you would try to stop her. Your interference will stem only from fearing he was using her. But if that issue was settled, you wouldn’t mind. It’s not like he is 60 you know. This could be the real thing no one knows yet. Let’s have an open mind as you said.

    @Comic Relief:
    “And the fact that he’d take her home to meet Mum so soon is rather ludicous isn’t it?”
    .
    No, it’s not ludicrous. It’s only Ludicrous to you if you’re jealous, and nothing will give you more pleasure than to see this thing break up.

  • Comic Relief

    @LOL:

    I think you are wrong and doing a disservice to men. Not ALL men want young women. If truth be told maybe many want to fck them and that’s about it and that is the reality you are failing to see.
    -
    Any young person, male or female, under the age of about 25 has not fully matured emotionally. It just isn’t conducive to a lasting relationship.
    -
    I won’t address you again. It’s apparent that you lack the maturity yourself to know any better then address anyone who doesn’t agree with you in less then a mature manner. Have a good one!
    -
    And by the way, I’m 31. No spring chicken but intelligent enough to know that age is just a number. Grow up!

  • LOL!

    @Whatshedonenow:
    Everything you said could be right. So time will tell. I think it’s too early to know which way the wind blows. But over all, I agree with you today. “Bystander” and “Just Sayin” too.
    We’ll know soon enough.
