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.

    @Alina:

    One of the comments said something about the look on his face when he was told she was married. That picture would be precious! But as we know that’s not going to stop GB! I’m rolling on the floor. A man with a girlfriend doesn’t get dissappointed because a hot woman is married. That didn’t take GB long to get back to being GB.

    @So Swedish:

    I am confused.
    The text above, of Gerry talking about PC and being single, is it old or new?

    Someone here said that it is a year old and now being rehashed for some reason?

    If this is something he actually said a year ago, why are they bringing it up now?
    He has a girlfriend (for all we know), so this must be hurtful to her.

    If it’s and old comment, I dont see the point in bringing it up.
    If it’s a new comment, I dont see the point of it at all.”

    -

    Even if it is old and something he said a while back, the fact that it’s being used for PR and JJ is heading it up top says it’s OK with GB. They could have picked any other story to headline. Throwing the PC thing out there almost seems like poetic justice at this point. And don’t ask me to explain why. If you’ve been following this whole fiasco, you’ll get it.

    @Cupajo: Not so fast. Have you forgotten what he was wearing a couple of days ago for his flight to Miami?

  • Desperado

    If she’s flying to Miami for a boo.ty call, then she must feel threatened, because she just spent several days in bed sick. The last thing I would do is get on a plane while recuperating from something that bad. Anyone who’s ever flown sick know’s what I’m talkin’ about. Worst. Thing. Ever.

    I bet after the premiere he takes off on a long hard party somewhere. He probably already has it planned out with a bunch of his buds,,

    Is Ronnie supplying the entertainment again???

  • whatshedonenow

    You are right.  PC is wily enough to keep the relationship platonic- I think. But if he really wants to get his career back on track he has to drastically clean up his image. Big time. No more dating dodgy, plastic looking famewh*re, daft chicks who are young enough to be his daughter. No appearances at clubs where he looks like the creepy old dude in the corner.  No more creepy looking friends like that Ronnie bloke. No more inept, tacky comments during interviews. No more flitting here, there, and every where like a teenager on speed to catch the next free tacky opening, or to go on freebie sha** fests  in countries south of the border.  No more “try too hard to impress” bragging about learning to fly planes, helicopters or any other daft man boy mobiles. Basically he has to grow up, be a proper man and act his age. FORTY THREE! But does he have the will power to do all that? I doubt it. But as I said before wonders never cease.

    @Manny: Is it time for another showcase? LOL

  • 80sGeorgeMichael

    @whatshedonenow: I don’t see it happening. He’s too old now. I noticed in that MJ article he seemed happiest running around with the guys, flying things, crashing things, and running with the boys until after sundown. He won’t stop now, imo.

  • DocP

    @Manny:
    If that happens then its just more proof that he refuses to grow up. He needs to develop some character and start taking life more seriously. Does anyone know how old his father was when he died?? Not to be morbid but its a reality. Usually the sons have the same fate and genetic makeup of the father unless they are smart and break the cycle.BTW I do like the outfit he wore to this interview. He looks happy so something happened to boost his mood or he’s a good faker.

  • whatshedonenow

    @80sGeorgeMichael

    I think you are probably right. If he doesn’t change- and change quickly –  there’s an extremely good chance that he’ll end up becoming a creepy old pervert. And the only thing he would have attained is an absolutely appalling reputation as a man and as an actor.

    @DocP: A shot of Redbull and some hot latina brestesses would do it.

  • miami

    If I were an acting coach, lol lol, or an advisor I would suggest GB think back to his early roles and really remember what it was that ignited that spark we see from him in Dear Frankie, Shooters, Please, and The Jury. It’s something deep within him that just lit up the screen. Hey GB, bring back that passion and drive. I would really hate to see him just spending all his time partying and wasting his talent.

  • 80sGeorgeMichael

    @whatshedonenow: I think it pretty much sealed the creepy-ole-perv deal for me when I read that post yesterday where he was sitting across a room from some actress and staring at her without blinking for eons. That’s creepy. And there’s a zillion other things I can think of, lol. Those pics in the closet of that girl with the feather boa still haunts me.

  • whatshedonenow

    @www.socalpb.com

    From what I’ve seen he hasn’t the first clue about what it takes to be a proper man.

    What an asshoole this Butler is!!! I’ve never been Madalina’s fan,but i kind of feel sorry for her right now!I do think she felt for him and thought she could change him(naive and young)…Even IF they are no longer together,he should’t have poped out this comments soon after their break up!He’s such a mess!

  • Hello

    You are so likeable, easy to deal with, caring, smiling, diplomatic, you establish connections with such great ease, that you attract a majority of women, including those you are not interested in. It is not a game, it is your nature. Each and everyone believe to be the object and the target of your favours whereas, in fact, it is the way you behave with everybody.

    You cannot stand solitude at all: you prefer to be ill-accompanied rather that to be alone. There is a danger that you remain attached to a person who does not suit you best. You are spoilt for choice. You should be able to find a suitable match and to reach the state of harmony that is the centre of your deep motivations.

    @shallow people?:

    If what’s transpired this year is part of a ‘plan’ (also mentioned in the MJ article), then he really needs to pack it in and give himself a serious talking to, because IT’S. NOT.WORKING.

  • Vapid

    @shallow people?: The type that makes a living selling their se.xuality. The type who’s willing to surgically alter their looks to appeal to the baser instincts of men. The type who spends hours taking pictures of themselves in provocative poses. The type that’s a social climber and golddigger. The type that is becoming accustomed to having everything given to them by men. The type that has absolutely no thought for anyone but themselves and thinks their sht don’t stink. That type.

  • whatshedonenow

    Directing! What is he wittering  on about?  He couldn’t direct his way out of his front room.  Does he not have any normal bloke friends who will tell him to stop talking Gawd’s own cr*p?  He  needs to get the h* ll out of NY and HW. There are  too many idiots blowing smoke up his ar*e in those places.  He always sounds like an overgrown frat boy in interviews. He needs to be more composed. He’s too old to behave like that now.

  • a cup of kindness

    @whatshedonenow:

    May I suggest you and others like you stop watching anything with Gerry. He is driving you crazy. I know the whole car crash analogy, but you have become way to invested in Gerard Butler. He will never become your fantasy dream man. Move on and good luck. It will be tough with no Gerry in your life as your whipping boy for your miserableness. Take a deep breath now and best of luck.

    You are a horrid person. I hope you don’t wish things like this on your own family members. But I guess they’re perfect like you are.
