Gerard Butler: 'Despierta America' Appearance!

Gerard Butler suits up as he makes an appearance on Despierta America at Univision Studios on Tuesday morning (November 27) in Miami, Fla.

The 43-year-old actor, who was interviewed by host Karla Martinez, promoted his new film Playing For Keeps and talked about how he wished he was Latin.

“I wish I was Latin because everyone is from a different country, but there such a great camaraderie between everybody,” Gerard expressed. “All the women (Latinas) are unbelievably beautiful, and the guys are so fun. It’s a really nice atmosphere.”

Also pictured: Gerard arriving at LAX Airport after his flight from Miami later that evening in Los Angeles.

    Yes severe cases can cause blisters. Min you there are many many things it could be but athlete’s feet is quite common but manifests itself differently person to person.
    I can’t stand my hubby’s dry feet but I’ll take his over blistery feet any day.

  • Come on

    Are his feet seriously being picked on now? He better not ever get a hang nail or you all may implode. That being said, IMO all men should get regular pedicures like most women do. No shame in it.

  • Strings of Lights

    I never had it and never knew anyone that did. Do they take oral anti fungals now for it? Just asking because it is so bad on him he really needs Drs care for it.

  • Manny

    Exactly and who knows if he had shoes on on his flight there, plus add the humidity, etc…

  • Devil’s Advocate

    @Ornaments: first- I have never posted on any board about Gerard Butler or anyone else, under this or any other moniker.

    Also, I wasn’t claiming to know him or authoritatively analyze him. I just noted that people were making some pretty harsh comments and I was just pointing out that he, and all celebrities, are humans with real issues. In my 2nd ever (follow up) and only other comment on that other thread, I also said that I didn’t condone his behavior but as a person who has gone through some traumatic events, who turned them around into extraordinary success, he has both my compassion and admiration. Since none of us are likely ever going to meet him, it is true we could never truly know who he is to defend him, it is also true that we can’t vilify him for the same exact reason. As a woman who doesn’t particularly care for men treating women poorly, I don’t care how attractive he is because I’d never want to date him (yes, very rhetorical as I’d never have a chance anyway). However, he has accomplished a lot from being thrown out of his job and wasting years in law school to end up at rock bottom without a career and a disappointment to his family, to dealing with the serious abandonment and emotional torment of regaining and then losing a father. Sure, other people have had it worse – and others have had it better, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a human being who went through some terrible things and came through very well (and on his own merit). So, he has my respect and admiration and for that reason, he is on my very, very short list of celebrities I would actually want to meet. Kindness and compassion aren’t sentiments that are on ration in this life, and I don’t think it’s terribly fair that just because he’s successful, desirable and a womanizer that he should be begrudged his pain and loss. Though I wouldn’t mind if he weren’t a womanizer… Of course. Hope that clarifies things, Ornamental.

  • Gerry’s Feet

    Based on the location of the redness, he probably picks dead skin off his feet which can eventually become very painful and red. It also makes it difficult to have on shoes. Seen this before on my own feet unfortunately. It’s a nervous habit like biting nails.

  • Strings of Lights


    Thanks Manny very helpful. Nothing like having our own resident nurse.
    Since he has been working out in various gyms this past year it is possible he picked it up at one of those.

    @Devil’s Advocate:

    Thanks for clarifying, but I got it the first two times you posted your message. I also got it the first hundred times it’s been posted over the last few months.

    I do prefer your comments to the current discussion about Gerry’s case of athlete’s foot.

    “You’re a sad person. Friends should be able to share relevant things that has happened to them in comparison to G.”

    You think these peeps are your friends — and, I’m sad?

  • Whaaaat?

    Honestly is there room on these JJ GB threads for people who aren’t into fantasy/psycho analyzing the man using 5,000 character posts? I see that the earlier one that did that has about 11 thumbs up yet a question I asked about his mother along with follow up comments got at least 4 thumbs down each except for my last comment where I thanked someone for their clarity on the matter(by the way, I only asked because someone said GB’s mother had LIED to him about his father)…When I was here last year I thought it was a bit crazy with some of the comments and thumbs but I see that it has gotten much worse. Good Luck to the remaining Regulars!

  • quitmodelbashing

    Its a sad statement that not even his feet are safe to s*uck

  • Terrible Twos

    @Terrible Twos:
    That made me LOL.
    From reading the comments on here it doesn’t sound like it’s safe to touch him at all, crusty feet and all!
    Maybe it’s better just to look. :)
    What a cutie!!

  • Terrible Twos

    @Hmmm: HAHA. I replied to my own comment. Oh dear, long day at work. I meant to reply to hmmmm. :/
    Thanks for the laughs ya’ll. This thread was hilarious, omg.

  • food 4 thought

    I just had the awful thought of being behind him in the airport security line, and having to stand on the foot scanner. This is why I always wear socks. Gross!

  • food 4 thought

    Wasn’t it Madonna who famously taught David Letterman that one should p/ee on their feet in the shower to kill foot fungus? Ok I’m done, and I’m sure you’re all glad of that :)

  • Strings of Lights

    I think Gerry has already admitted to p/ee/ing in the shower.

  • Lord Love a Duck

    The first testicular guard, the “Cup,” was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important. Ladies quit Laughing. Couldn’t help it.

  • PsychoB

    @Lord Love a Duck: lol

    He looks to me he has an allergic reaction. Or I know someone who got a chemical burn from some shoes(very expensive heels) needless to say she got her money back for them.

  • Strings of Lights


    That’s what I was thinking. His flip flops look new. His feet also look painful.

  • Strings of Lights

    His feet didn’t look as bad when he left the hotel in miami.

  • Realist

    Ok wasn’t going to post about feet, but NO personality instead of crusty feet?! Women are sensitive to things like that. Good news for GB, seems his new/old GF likes rich famous men regardless of hygeine.This from a man who is referred to in several places as having crusty pants. What an @ss/hole. MG “studied” ballet for 7yrs. Have you ever seen a real ballerina’s feet? Oh someone posted after her I’m still sick plane’re pregnant and it’s still there. The teat seems to be drying up but she’s still milking it.

  • DocP

    @Strings of Lights:
    Athletes foot is treated with a simply over the counter anti fungal foot spray like lotrimin. Easy to cure, now a nail fungus is harder to get rid of. You usually have to take Lamisil everyday for 3 months which also can be harsh on your liver.

  • Lookie

    He stole his outfit from Kristen Stewart. Look at the top pics, lol.

  • DocP

    That’s so tacky to wear a black bra with a white see thru t shirt. Looks like the old Madonna look. I’m not a fan of Kristen Stewart , talk about someone with no acting talent. It will be Interesting to see what happens to this girls career now that the twilight series is done.

  • Clamsie

    @YUK: Yuk is right…foot herpes! LOL

    I don’t know anyone who has had athlete’s foot who is willing to show the rash in public. UGH. Best to keep that covered up until he goes to the hotel and has alone time. I’m grossed out already, the guy has no shame.

    HOLLYWOOD, CA – NOVEMBER 28: Abella Wyss and Gerard Butler at Soccer of Hope Special Screening of FilmDistrict’s ‘Playing For Keeps’ Benefiting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles at ArcLight Hollywood on November 28, 2012 in Hollywood, California. (Photo by Eric Charbonneau/WireImage)

  • God Bless yoou all!

    “No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39

    Gerry attended a special screening of PFK tonight in LA. It was the Children’s Hospital Benefit screening. Here is a beautiful photo of Gerry and Abella at tonight’s premiere:

    @Ornaments: What do you care, chat na.zi? There’s nothing worse than someone criticizing someone’s else’s thoughts or posts about Butler, whether they’re negative or positive.

    We’re all entitled to our opinions. Quit your bit.chin’ and back off. Go back to the fan sites where the ironfisted admins can give you the na.zi-type control over what’s posted regarding your hero Butler, control that you crave.

    The issue is BUTLER. He’s made himself available 24/7 to be made a spectacle because he’s a public figure. If people want to praise or diss him, it’s OUR business, not yours.

  • Alina

    a new thread…

  • wiphoenix

    His feet looked like we wore shoes that we’re too tight. Men’s formal shoes are just as painful as heels. Or maybe he just hurt his feet barefoot running through forest. Who knows, he’s always doing some manly thing, I doubt it ‘s foot herpes.

  • Doing the Honors

    Let me say that after viewing this video, there are several curiosities. She looks dead at the photog when she comes out and “gestures” towards that direction. Then one of the “drivers” notices the photog and looks straight in to it. How do you look in to a telephoto lens at a distance?? She starts to look back at it again but seems to catch herself. Amy looks that direction and around but seems oblivious like she was told one was around. Then Gerry, who has been texting, gets a scowl after he’s probably heard about the nearby photog and looks that way and starts to get in to the car but MG goes a different direction and now keeps her back turned. Then when the photog pans back, there’s a security guard standing right there next to him with a walkie talkie in his hands! What’s up with that? So apparently, in my view, the photog was “allowed” to be there filming. So who set this one up?? Give you three guesses and the first two don’t count!

  • Doing the Honors

    First he admits to having a gf and she goes off in a different car?? I’m at a loss here so maybe some of you more wiser can fill me in on the secrecy now.

  • Doing the Honors

    Is she done filming her movie? When is the premiere for PFK’s? Is she going to be there? Where the heck is everybody? I feel like I’m talking to myself here? The last three pages here have been discussing foot care!!! Did I miss something? A wedding? Hello…..anybody??

  • LOL

    “@LOL: Congratulations on your engagement, I wish you and your fiancé a life time of happiness.”
    Hi, how are you? Thank you for your good wishes. :)
    I am happy you said hi because you are the 4th person I mentioned that I didn’t remember their moniker. I put an O instead of Q. LOL. But you realized it was you.
    I just checked back because I knew some of my friendly posters would be trying to reply after my long absence. Have a wonderful holiday season. Don’t let the nasty depressing comments bring you down.

  • LOL

    Yes, you are right. One of the reasons I stopped posting is because there is nothing more to say. It’s obvious they are really together, as I believed from the very beginning and read the road signs properly, and not in a delusional way. Thus, I figured I’ll let the pictures of them together and his acknowledgements in various interviews do the talking for him. He doesn’t need me any longer. But thank you for keeping the fort. You are a very brave girl.
    Additionally, the fact I have all these changes happening to my private life with my engagement just made it easier to stay away, not to mention my fiancé expecting me to “obey” him and stay away from JJ, lol. He finds it a futile waste of time when I can be so much more productive with my time. There is no doubt he is right, even though I do miss trashing these old hags sometimes.
    It’s been a Rollo coaster engagement, I got to tell you. He took me down to Miami to propose. It was very romantic. I had no idea Gerry was there or just leaving or that my Fiancé was going to propose. It’s just as well because my Fiancé threated that if we run into Gerry (we were in NYC too while he was there a month and a half ago) he’s going to ask him what he thought of JJ and his jealous old-hag fans (he’s picking up some of lingo, lol) who constantly trash his GF and talk about him being a sleazy Lothario who likes younger hotter tighter girls (that was me picking up my BF’s lingo about men’s choices). LOL! I told him he shouldn’t do that because that’s very embarrassing to his fans that he should think they are that crazy and dying of jealousy, but my fiancé thinks is ridiculous that I am worried about making his fans look like fools, when they are fools and doing it to themselves. Come to think of it, it might be the only way to stop this madness. Maybe bringing this to his attention so he could address it in one of his interviews and tell his older fans that he is indeed serious about his GF, they will finally lay off. He doesn’t have to be nasty about it, just unequivocal so there is no confusion.
    Well, come to think of it, there are some fans who will never accept it, even if he were more clear and explicit about his GF. It just makes them feel better to believe she is a ho and it’s a business arrangement between them, and once he gets his fill he’ll send her on her merry little way and hook up with an old hag the next day because he is just lusting for old-hag flesh to rock his world and fulfill all his needs in and out of the bedroom, and she will also be his emotional bulwark and straighten him out if he gets out of line like the mommy figure he always dreamed of in his sexual dreams, and she’ll ride with him in his limo and run his career, the old hag will, and she will choose projects for him and will fire Alan and keep him away from Ronnie, Freddy, Ariel, and all his friends because they are no good for him and they set a bad example for him and he needs mommy to protect him from bad people, and also said hag will make sure the fans that get to approach him aren’t so hot and definitely not young because then he might revert to his old ways and chase such hot young tighter fans so she will make sure only fat old cows like her get to take photos with him and get a signed autograph of his movie memorabilia, and in the bedroom the hag will make sure he is satisfied by her dried up, over-used-by-vibr/atos estrogen-filled-cream poss. So do you see, it doesn’t matter what Butler says about his true real-life GF, these useless jealous old hags will never accept it, and still will have that ridiculous fantasy he’ll dump her and hook up with them, in their dreams at least.
    Well, that’s the gist of it. Hope you laughed a little about the level of buffoonery coming from these old hags.
