    OMG, could you have picked a better photo of him? He looks like someone just hit him in the back of the head and he just hasn’t fallen down yet! Glad he got the jump on WHT tho!

    A. Says:

    @huh?: @Sian: The sad thing is that he really doesn’t care about his fans even though he tries to act like he does. The only reason he has to pretend that he likes them is because of his career. The freakin douch*b*ag even said so himself. “You can’t have a career without fans” or something like that. He really showed his true colors saying that, didn’t he? What’s even more offensive about this guy is that he is much nicer and pays MUCH more attention to fans that are pretty (and young!). He is very shallow. He also seems to be pretty dumb since he isn’t afraid to flirt and be touchy feely with fans that are as young as 13-16. And please don’t say it’s not true, I’ve seen it with my own eyes. I’ve no idea why Butler still has so much fans. He is a creepy, creepy man.

    He just tilted his head back; do look your self in the mirror with the same pose and you’ll the same look.

    With the release date for OHF is only 6 months away, i can assume that they has almost done with shooting. Wonder when did he do this :).

    Hope they don’t choose the bad time to release like CM.

    “A” “You can’t have a career without fans” or something like that. He really showed his true colors saying that. Dah! What the H–ll do you expect? Like he would have a career without fans? What have you been sniffing?
    There are fans from all walks of life that GB has signed for, photos taken etc. Many people, even other stars have said how nice he is to his fans. How many videos have we seen where he starts to leave and goes back to someone wanting one more photo or autograph. Give the guy a break and if you detest him so much, why are you wasting your time here?
    As far as being dumb, I don’t think so if he made it through law school. Oh yeah and radio man is a 16 yr old model. Get a life. At least we know what the “A” stands for.

    Hello Says:

    @Anastasia Beaverhausen: What is it like? Heard the Battery tunnel was flooding. Fire island heavily damaged and a big fire on Breezy Point. Are you in a safe place uptown? Sounds like it. Guess we are wondering if GB stuck it out or left town after the Halloween party. Obviously you have power, so that’s good. Stay safe girl.

    Braved the weather Says:

    Wow, someone at JJ is asleep at the wheel. The JS show was filmed and aired LAST WEEK. Gerry didn’t “brave” anything. He’s probably not even in NYC now. How embarrassing, JJ. Well, I guess we have confirmation now that you make up sht.

    Good Morning JJer’s! Hope everyone here on the east coast is okay. My area looks like a war zone and our power is out and it probably will be for quite awhile. What a mess and it’s still pouring rain here! Sandy just won’t go away! The good news is my family is home and safe and begging for eggs and bacon. LOL Gotta love that. Have a great day and wherever you are, please be safe!

    DocP Says:

    I wonder if he went there to watch the show? There were many of the tv talk shows ( letterman, Fallon , and some others) they were saying that they still did their show to a empty audience. maybe he went there to support Jon Stewart knowing he wouldn’t have many people there? Just a thought, either way I hope Gerry was smart enough to get to high crowd. It looked really bad last night on the news and it doesn’t look any better this morning. They stated last night that 4million people are out of power along the eastern coast. Also the Tall ship called the HMS bounty which was used in Mutany on the bounty and one of the Pirates of the Caribean movies sunk yesterday. One crew member is dead and another is missing. They figured it was safer out at sea than on land. This is definately one of the worst storms to hit the US since Katrina.

  24. 24
    Doubtful Says:

    @DocP: No. I’m sure he left town by Sunday. I don’t think he’s the type that would want to be stranded anywhere, even for a second. Be careful out there, people.

    TNT Says:

    Caring about his fans? He needs to be photographed with pretty and powerful people to stay relevant in his eyes. He is not one to look average like Matt Damon and marry a down to earth girl and get on the cover of People magazine as the sexiest man alive for being natural and grounded. He is going to stick to the good looking people who get ahead for their looks and average brains. No real spiritual path or service except to perpetuate themselves. He has flickers of hope yet he doesn’t capitalizes on it. So shown in his work. So many things are places in front of them but he passes it over.

    dargabriel Says:

    I know my words don’t mean much but I care about gerards fans very much and love all walks of life, but mostly loving real people. I really don’t like fake, but I know in each person lies love in the soul and spirit…. Who knows maybe these people he surrounds himself with do good for him in some way, at least I would want to think. Then I remember going to school and there were goody goodies verses the very good people who have such great hearts, who people, bullies would tease and I would go to them and be their friend, because I love so much, I stood out in the crowd, because usually cute people aren’t always nice to those who are teased and tortured by mean people, so gerard, I wish you would love everyone, sometimes you are so damn shallow, I’m very sad thinking about these people who’ve touched my life, they are the best love. Thank you to all of you here. Love,dargabriel

    on bullying Says:

    its my observation over the years that bullies are the ones, who are not so attractive, picking on the ones who are.
    these threads should be ample evidence of that.

    the girls who develop first in junior high also got called names on picked on. it stems from jealousy and insecurity.

    –some bullies falsely try to portray the hero-protector and they even switch roles to the victim.

    casandra Says:

    @Doubtful: I agree with you…he is smart and sexy and charming, but at this age he should have realised there’s more to a person (especially woman) than the looks.After all, looks fades in time, including his own .Most men in their 30 s come to realize that, but apparently not him.I remember an interview with Bradley Cooper after being named sexiest man alive and him saying he is at an age he doesn’t care about those things(beauty, looks, etc) anymore..and he’s only 36…That says a lot about his maturity. I am not saying that GB should date regular Mary , but when looks is the only criteria , then there’s something wrong.Otherwise he seems like a warm, fun human being.

    Ha! So he is still in NYC. I’m not surprised. He’s a risk-taker and a thrill-seeker. He’ll probably be full of stories about the storm when he does the press rounds for PFK.

  55. 55
    Don't hold your breath Says:

    @heather: Highly unlikely. It’s either a case of mistaken identity, which happens quite a bit with him, or a fake tweet. Did you believe the story that he taped JS on Monday, too?

  56. 56
    JMO Says:

    @Don’t hold your breath: There have been two sightings and one actually talked to him. He’s still in the city. It would be just like him to want to experience a hurricane. If a novice surfer who will risk surfing Mavericks, a little ol’ hurricane isn’t going to scare him away. In fact, he’s probably been out and about seeing if he can help out someway.

  57. 57
    Don't hold your breath Says:

    @JMO: Yes. I’m sure of it. He must be out walking the streets trying to help people. Um hmmm.

  58. 58
    JMO Says:

    @Don’t hold your breath: If you think he’s such a dooch, why do you bother? People like you need your heads examined. Your attraction to Butler makes no sense. Stop wasting your time and just move on.

  59. 59
    Don't hold your breath Says:

    @JMO: Why? So you can turn this into a sniveling worship site? Not a chance. There’s a couple of those for you to go to if you want to grovel. This is a gossip site. Gossip, not “fan.”

  60. 60
    DocP Says:

    @Don’t hold your breath:
    Sadly I have to agree with you on that and apparently people love to gossip about Gerry. I think though just as some fans opinion are to far to the right, yours are to far to the left. I like coming here because let’s face it the guy isn’t a saint so sometimes it nice to voice unhappiness regarding his behavior. Howeve he’s not the devil incarnate either so I say give credit where credit is do. Maybe he is trying to help others, he could have hired someone to go risk the elements and shop for him. Instead he choose to do it himself. For that I applaud him for showing he is just a regular guys at times to. I bet those models at that party didn’t go get their own food for the storm, well maybe the poor ones did:)

  61. 61
    JMO Says:

    @Don’t hold your breath: It’s not a “hate Gb” site either. Just because I choose not to dis him doesn’t mean I worship him and because it is an open public forum, I or anyone else is entitled to our opinions. I just don’t understand why you want to come on to a public forum and hate on someone. Are you just a poor little hater at heart? Your Momma didn’t love you like a rock? I feel sorry for people like you. Your hate will eat you up inside.

    @Don’t hold your breath: Maybe he’s knocking on doors checking which clubs are open, or searching for downed models. They blow away easily, you know.

    Went to see CM – cuz I don’t think it’s going to stick around long. Meh on his acting, shudder at his “American Surfer” accent, as well as the little Gerry Butler mannerisms that drive me nuts, but there were things I liked. The movie rocks when it’s at the beach. The waves are monstrous, and the camera work is stunning. It’s truly amazing to watch the real surfers do their thing. Elizabeth Shue was wasted in her role (pun intended), and the woman who played GB’s wife was just a non-entity. Zero chemistry between those two. But for the sake of the beach scenes – see it in the theater.

    Sending best wishes to the east coasters. Hang in there.

    You are as dumb as a brick. Lord help us if you really are a pharmacist – how dangerous. GB was in an empty studio supporting Jon Stewart – seriously?

    @Haiku – Please!!

    @JMO – of course he’s still in NYC. He attended parties on Friday and Saturday and probably missed his flight out. If you’ve even been in a situation remotely like this one, you know that it’s hardly an adventure – other than just trying to survive without power, water, heat, transportation, etc.

    How would I know that Jon Stewart didn’t have a show yesterday? I heard on the news that a lot of the talk shows still went on even though they had no audience. I live in the Midwest, apparently you live in NY or you just waste your time finding out worthless info. I spend my time being productive, you know making money. Oh that’s right I’m not a RpH so that money that got deposited last Friday In my account, well that was someone else’s.

    Well, too bad for him he doesn’t have neither youth nor looks anymore, and yet he desperately clings to a young model almost 20 years younger than him. He is nothing but a sad and pathetic middle aged man. Does he really believe that the young woman he calls his gf would’ve dated or even been interested in him if he worked at, let’s say McDonalds?? ROFL…

Can you just see him in the thick of it, trying to help others find their way. LMAO!

    @Maggie P.U.: Hey Maggie! Nice to see you here. I’m sorry to hear about your accident and I hope your surgeries go well and your knee is as good as new. You always sound so positive. With all that you’re going through I hate to whine about my downed trees, lack of electricity and internet and crap/py cell service so I won’t. It’s been more difficult to see the devastation around me but I know everyone on the east coast will repair and rebuild. It’ll be slow but it will get done. I will get to the towels and gutter as soon as I can. Be well friend and good luck to you. Please check in when you can and let us know how it’s all going.

    Hello to you Lolita and all the rest of the JJer’s. So GB stayed in NYC huh? Well he wanted to attend those Halloween parties over the weekend and then he probably couldn’t leave the city by the time he woke up on Sunday afternoon. LOL

    Have a great night everyone!

    @95…CGE. No, my friend it is you who has it rough. It all will be ok. Remember, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. And you will be amazed of how people will come together and help each other out. Situations like a War or severe storms brings the good samaritan out in us all. I remember the Joplin MO twister….people from out of State came in to help out. Strength and courage will enhance the faith. I am praying for all those involved. :). Good Luck and stay safe.
