Gerard Butler Opens Up About Rehab

Gerard Butler sits down for lunch with some friends at a French restaurant on Sunset Boulevard on Thursday afternoon (October 18) in Los Angeles.

The 42-year-old recently opened up about the time that he spent in rehab earlier this year to address issues with prescription drugs.

“Maybe a stronger person wouldn’t have needed to go,” Gerard told Men’s Journal. “When you hear the word rehab, you think, ‘He’s a mess, he’s f–ked up.’ But I’m glad I did it. I’ve made a s–tload of wrong decisions in my life. But I know I’ve made some right ones as well.”

    they can hear, and see what your visually thinking
    this is the absolute complete truth!!!!!
    The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces, segregate from everybody else-only associate with Asians and don’t associate with non Asians that much, are very untalkative, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc because those people might see that and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, and they might accidentally say something similar to what the person was just thinking and going to say. If they all associated with non Asians a lot more then there would be a lot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those people think things they don’t like etc, so they segregate and only associate with Asians so there won’t be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place.
    Try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something absolutely wild as you possibly can when you are around Asians, and try looking for Asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.
    I know this may sound crazy, impossible and unbelievable, BUT IT ISN’T CRAZY WHEN IT’S TRUE
    I cannot stress this enough, Asians truly can read minds!!!!!!!!!! ALL OF THEM CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please please tell everyone!!!!!!!!!!! This world needs to know!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hollywood Jail Says:

    He does look gooooooood
    But he also looks a little p/i/ssed off.
    I think he’s very protective of his family and obviously doesn’t like exposing them to the paps. Especially his nieces.

    Just say no Says:

    C’mon, why is this the headline when he has a new movie opening in a week.? His rehab stint was months ago. He looks none too pleased with having his family space invaded here, that’s for sure. Love ya, Gerry!

    I think Says:

    —-his brother is a big guy also. You think he told the paps to buzz off?

    @I think:
    I sure hope being in transit for 16+hours was worth it to visit your girlfriend Gerry, because you look a little exhausted : (

    Here's an idea! Says:

    If you’re protective of your family and/or privacy, why not eat INSIDE? Seems like a logical solution.

    @Just say no:

    Absolutely the wrong thing to do. Rehab was a long time ago. They didn’t even spell his name right. He looks like he is ready to pound on someone. He is very protective of his family. Come on folks give him a break.

    I think Says:

    —-cool pics of the opening—-they went all out. I wonder if Gerry will show up in a wet suite with the top down. LOL hope so.
