Gerard Butler: 'I Am Waiting for Priyanka Chopra'

Gerard Butler sits down for an interview with Telemundo on Monday morning (November 26) in Miami, Fla.

The 43-year-old Playing for Keeps actor recently revealed his affection for Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra.

“Last year, Priyanka was here [the US] and I was going out of town to a wedding,” Gerard said. “I stay in Malibu and she was coming to party at Malibu and I couldn’t meet. I was even thinking of missing the plane and going and saying hello because I hadn’t seen her in a long time. But we are in touch all the time.”

“I am still single because I am waiting for Priyanka Chopra,” he jokingly added.

    @7′ Tall Evergreen Tree: Fortunate for MGs career. Yes I do agree MG really fell for him also. PC is also plastically enhanced (nose job, contacts). I think she did more stuff recently. She is Indian but she could give up her culture to get what she sees is better. But Gerry is such a philander that she knows it would be a hard sell even for herself. PC is not elite in India as a beauty. The real sot after Asian women in respectable families would stay away from him.

    Look whatever you think of MG, he is pretty rude to easily talk about other women when they probably just broke up or whatever they both do. He has very little respect. I question how his mother raised him when it comes to relationships.

    Oh the one that got away biel is married.

    Do you notice he speaks of unattainable women and bums around with young, naive and slutty ones.

  • Jackie

    If I were in a serious relationship with a BF and he told the world he was “single”, I’d be pretty upset. Either GB and Mads have broken up or he doesn’t give a flip about her and sees their relationship as more of a fling than anything else.

  • memories

    forgot about all the PC haters, some things never change in Gerry land she looks good in comparison though – now there are pictures of those two together and he looks smitten for sure !

  • 7′ Tall Evergreen Tree

    Google his name, then put PC’s in after——There are so many news stories about them it will blow you away. Amazing because when you put in his name with MG there are hardly anything. I guess the tabs new all along the MG thing was fake.

  • PFK

    #55: Oh I cannot wait to watch/read THAT interview. LOL! MG and PC who?

    OMG did you really just post that??? Seriously???
    .
    What kind of a buzzard are you anyway?

  • 7′ Tall Evergreen Tree

    @Jazz:

    Well with all the plastic PC has had, now she should be just about right for him!!

  • Pete’s

    @memories: He looks smitten because she probably did not put out. Remember these women in countries that have cheap labor can focus on enhancing themselves in and outward. But they call themselves “independent” and well groomed, well read. Maybe she will “save” him. Indian mystery. That is all. Bollywood actresses are not as deep as you think.

  • 7′ Tall Evergreen Tree

    I can’t imagine PC getting involved with G. She dates alot of hot young indian men. She also has been clued in about GB’s womanizing. She knows it would be career suicide for her in India to have romance connections with him.

  • PFK

    #61: who can tell anymore at this point.

  • smuttytingles

    @Pete’s: I agree with this. I think he enjoys the chase, and is more likely to be smitten by a women who doesn’t put out, and that he has to jump through hoops for. That’s the woman that would hold his interest.

  • memories

    @Pete’s: Who ever said they were but she’s probably as deep as the Romanian.

  • 7′ Tall Evergreen Tree

    Someone help me out—I’m having a brain freeze. Who is the blue haired young female singer?

  • Mmmmmmm

    What are you people talking about???? The comments about PC are old!!! This is the original old interview from where the Indian press took the info …
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuCxBlcLSws&feature=player_embedded
    I don’t understand why the international press is bringing this back again.

  • 7′ Tall Evergreen Tree

    What if Maddie was pushing him to be at the PFK premiere and he felt that it was too much for him to handle so he ran the other way?

  • miami

    He looks great in this set of pics!

  • Rhea

    Oh please this is old news when he came to india he hit on udita goswami as he loved her eyes she met him later in NYC then he chatted up and hooked up with kangana ranuat she fell for him but he looked for the quickest exist, then when mallika sherawat came to LA he hooked up with her she was then with Russell peters who was GB’s mate. PC knows all this and wouldnt even risk it with him as she knew the damage he did in india. In india its a reputation and honor thing you dont go where your friends have been.

    And india isnt all slums like you see in the movies the rich are loaded and poor are well just poor but its all cosmopolitan, GB has big connections in india and investors with big money, its big business bollywood money. Realiance india group recently went into partnership with speilberg so take from there, Camilla belle recently did a bollywood movie and got paid more than she did in usa its easy money i guess for western actors i guess

  • Rhea

    Oh yeh forgot to mention while he was messing around in india he had a so called GF in the states who heard about the rumours and flew to india lol

  • 7′ Tall Evergreen Tree

    @Rhea:

    Good info

  • Mary84

    I don’t know if he and MG are still dating… But if i had a bf who says in an interview he’s single, i would be pissed…

  • Hi Gerry

    @7′ Tall Evergreen Tree

    :-) You having fun???????

    Noah Lomax interview. Seeing as he’s actually in a film with GB via legitimate avenues, I don’t see why this shouldn’t be posted here.

  • Rhea

    @7′ Tall Evergreen Tree:
    Thanks

    i saw all this info on PC & GB connection again so thought id tell it how it was, Shes busy launching music career in usa and singing with wii am from black eyed peas so doubt she’d bothered hes a good friend to her thats all. quickly before i go when he saw kangana at a party in india he stared at her from across the room for ages without blinking and she was so bowled over by that she found it so sexy in a weird way lol and he said to her she was very different i guess guys from the west find anything from the east different when its normal for us

  • Untamable Shrew

    @smuttytingles:

    If that is true,what happen to Jessica Biel?This man is confusing.Who could deal with all this madness?After awhile it would get old.Like grow up already.

  • 7′ Tall Evergreen Tree

    @Rhea:

    Is she the one that made the planet of the apes movie here? Anyway the one that made that movie, he would go and watch the filming everyday and when it was done, it was rumored that they took off together for a few days.

  • 7′ Tall Evergreen Tree

    @Hi Gerry:

    Yes I’m having fun. I’ve got my tree up and next I have to put the lights on.

    So I met Gerard Butler from afar today! I was on the boardwalk and he was on his hotel balcony! I waved & he waved back smiling!!!

    I then yelled “I LOVE YOU!!!!!” And Gerard yelled back “I LOVE YOU TOO” & then I said “CAN I HAVE A PICTURE WITH YOU?!!” And he said…

    “SURE ILL COME DOWN!!!!!” But he didn’t end up coming down :-( he still said he loved me though haha!

  • casey

    he never said anyone’s name, press is going on about this actress from India.

  • candy

    I think any girl that prob dates him would prob enjoy it at first but after a while would get draining and boring..he repeats the same jokes over again if anyone’s noticed, and i dont think he could offer you more apart from outings and some romps here and there. I highly doubt hes the type of BF that would bring you soup in bed if your sick, or support or devote time on you if you needed him. Its always the women giving. If MG was really madly in love with him she would stick around and invest with him rather than her career who knows could be wrong but she prob likes time apart & distance relationship.

  • Rhea

    @7′ Tall Evergreen Tree:

    That was frieda pinto in planet of apes she wasnt into him as she has loads of HW offers, He visited kangana on sets and studio in NYC and offered her a holiday get away he was free then and she took off for a week without telling the bollywood crew, he parents rang up as she never even informed them and was mortified and the crew swore never to sign her again as they were worried. He offers these girls fancy getaways but tells them to come seperatley at airports and meets them either on plane or afterwards at the place. Kangana wanted more he didnt and she was heartbroken he also promised her help with HW movies but never did lol

    He loves india and the girls, the girls never kiss and tell as they would be disowned by culture and society to bed a western man so they would never tell as later on no indian respectable guy will marry them and would bring great shame for the parents who dont allow this behaviour. I like ppl from west and men are nice to but my parents generation believe white men arent loyal or reliable i no its not true as they are really down to earth lovable ppl but its asian mentality lol please nobody take offence when i mean white i dont mean to be racist lol hope u understand

  • Twinkletoes

    Ewwww now he is a bonafide worldwide douche-bag. Can it get any worse?

  • Mmmmmmm

    @Mary84: that statement (that he is single) was from more than one year ago.
    -
    @bex: This kid (Noah Lomax) is lovely! He reminds me of Jack McElhone from Dear Frankie … I can’t believe he is already 19 years old!!
    -
    @Rea: Well, he says that (about being different) quite often to all kind of women (from east, west, north and south) … Wasn’t the same thing he said to Martina Rajic? (eye roll) … But I agree, he has something for indian women, and exotic brunettes in general. ;-)

  • Pete’s

    @Rhea: thanks, had a feeling he was very busy in Bollywood.

  • Another Opinion

    @Rhea: Just curious, is Jeannia R. the girlfriend who flew to India to be with him (he most probably had many so called girlfriends at the time)?

  • bex
  • Strings of Lights

    I bet Antoine Fuqua of OHF laid the law down to him about messing up his movie. With Gerry’s rep of playing while filming, I can see AF telling him there will be no messing around while on his film. Maybe why he latched onto MG and played it straight for awhile. But of course it doesn’t last with him. The man works hard and plays harder. There’s no in between with him. No balance. He loves to do both and will never change.

  • http://google u patil

    @gb: the woman was Miss World [crowned in London]. She’s not fake!

  • Rhea

    @Pete’s:

    Lol he was definetly busy every lady guest that would meet him he would be very huggy & kissy with them even married ones and its alien to do that there as some ppl mind but he wasnt aware prob he would tell stories that before he was famous in london doing odd jobs he would watch bollywood films lol

    @Another Opinion: I dont who she was but he was with lots of male friends then and all them were naughty

    From what ive heard hes nice guy but woman that with him said that he never took anything serious and just wanted to have fun all the time he attend all the parties from shahrukhs house to hrithiks house and then PC throwed him a lavish party. Im not a particular fan nor dislike him but ive heard good things about him and bad things about him like he can be really nasty and rude form others so guess thats like with every human

  • Mmmmmmm

    Well, it seems that the news about what happened in the Nightclub in Dubai are finally in Rumania ….

    “Madalina Ghenea, replaced by Gerard Butler with six women”

  • Chandra

    @Rhea: sorry, I am (still) a hot Indian girl from a very respected, educated and spiritual Family. I married a European white man. Spirituality, family and service was our connection when we met. Everyone recognized he is a special soul. Now a mom, my kids are very balanced and well versed than most as to their heritage. Whatever you may experience, I have south Indian Brahmin parents say to me if their daughters met a similar man they would be fine with it. I feel respect and humility for yourself is the key. I do not go looking for everyone to respect me.

    Sorry GB is hot but trouble. I would not respect myself and run the other way. Yes, I was his type. But in reviewing Butler’s escapades, I think at this point it is not saying much anymore.

  • Rhea

    @Chandra:

    Your really lucky everyone was understanding, i like western men and think they are funny and different in a nice way but my parents and they society i live in mumbai would be hard to convince but glad its changing. But i think if i brought a GB type man home they would hit the roof his reputation speaks volumes

  • Another Opinion

    @Rhea: Thanks for the reply! If all these women know from the start that he is not exclusive with them and that he doesn’t take them seriously, then good for them. I hope they don’t end up hurt. He might have a lot of nice qualities, but I don’t think that he is capable of making himself or someone else happy.

  • Pete’s

    Freida Pinto had so many Hollywood men hit on her she did not see Butler as a novelty. He wants to go back to India, so to find more younger and untainted batch of Bollywood actresses. Unfortunately, maybe the families recognize a daughter being even near him is not beneficial to their rep.

  • MoggyMe

    @Rhea:

    Very true Rhea! Absolutely.
    PC’s parents are both doctors. And I have heard her say, in an interview, that she would, could, never marry anyone her parents didn’t approve of: Which is par for the course in India.
    And I certainly cannot see her conservative parents approving of GB’s track record. And it would greatly hinder her own reputation in BW.

  • Strings of Lights

    @Another Opinion:

    Like I have always said—-he is a great place to visit–but I wouldn’t want to live there.

  • Rhea

    @Another Opinion:

    I agree i think some women prob get greedy and want help with cross over movies & some think he might change with them he seems nice but totally confused on what he wants i dont think he knows himself to be honest so i dont think he intentionally wants to hurt them.

    @Pete’s:

    True plus she gets lucrative payments from loreal & got films with christian bale she might not want to get linked with him.

    I

  • Strings of Lights

    Well he looks good and he seems to be more happy than he has been in a while. Maybe having 1 steady gf is just too smothering for him. He needs to feel free and uninhibited. IMO

  • quitmodelbashing

    GB’s typical M.O. to get out of relationships is to ignore the current POI (person of interest), never admit that he is breaking up with her, tell her everythng is fine and then get pictured with another woman. Then he will tell her he loves her and all this is b.s. but if she can’t trust him..blah, blah, blah. Then he is in the perfect position to say he didn’t break anyone’s heart, they just didn’t “get him and his lifestyle”.

    Examples, Kristi (arcade girl), violin girl, martina , PG, etc. He’s ended relationships this way with Bianca, Jasmin, Jeanna, etc.

    Works everytime and he can blame his celebrity instead of admitting his own shortcomings. He always makes them hate him but then he turns it around and they hate themselves for not being able to “accept him. ” He just puts it all back on them… which again shows his lack of class, maturity, empathy and b*lls.

    Id still do him but with a dozen dental dams, two dozen condoms, a crucifix, holy water douche, haz mat scrub down and an exorcism.
