Gerard Butler Talks Current Girlfriend on 'Tonight Show'!

Gerard Butler Talks Current Girlfriend on 'Tonight Show'!

Gerard Butler and Olivia Munn take on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Monday night (December 3) in Burbank, Calif.

On the show, the 43-year-old Scottish actor spoke about his new girlfriend, and got very coy when asked about her! The gal in question is rumored to be actress/model Madalina Ghenea, though nothing is confirmed.

“It’s been seven months now…it’s not a record,” Gerard joked.

Olivia, who rocked an Ani Lee dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Loren Stewart rings, chatted about the difference between photo shoots for a male and a female. Click inside to check out Olivia‘s imitations!

If you’ll remember, last year Olivia enjoyed Virgin America’s fleet-wide WiFi and moonlighting during the airline’s inaugural flight from San Francisco to Palm Springs. This December 22, Virgin America will be launching the only direct service from New York to Palm Springs!

    @Reality Check: You said it. He looks like her father, or just a garden-variety dirty old man, when they are together, imo. I think it would be yet another hit to his rapidly-tanking career go any further “promoting” this situation in any way. If he’s smart, and he really is involved with her, he’ll just shut up now. If she gets any exposure here, her background will come out and make him look even worse. So far he’s just been lucky that no one’s paying attention.

  • what????

    @what????: The post just proved the lack of intelligence of many JJ posters. But what can we expect on a gossip board? They probably think great acting is what they saw in the last Transformers movie.

  • Clamsie

    @craparama: So now do you see why many of his former fans (including me) have thought for a long time that he was gay? Deeply closeted maybe. Why else would he need to keep “staging pics and scenarios for PR”?

    I agree that the whole Maddie thing is very odd considering he’s already admitting to her being his gf. So why clam up now? Why can’t he just be honest? He doesn’t have to reveal all the intimate details but he could act like a man in love. Here is a publicist’s dream comment:

    “Yes, I have a girlfriend, Madalina. She’s from Romania. We’re very happy and I’m off the market.”

    Short, sweet and to the point. His problem is that he has nothing else to talk about when he goes on talk shows. So naturally, the hosts want to know about his personal life, not what he did when he was six years old. I never understood why he had to keep up the pretense that he was “single and available” because he never was open to dating anyone unless he/she modelled or acted.

    Maybe he can’t get it up any longer. Recall that the days of the infamous yellow towel were ten years ago.

  • Tiny

    @Clamsie: That’s the rumor in the blinds in the last year.

  • dripping with Sarcasm

    @what????: I think you totally missed the sarcasm with which that poster made the statement about Vanessa Redgrave.

  • WOW!

    I can’t believe what I’m reading. Some of you SERIOUSLY believe that Gerry and/or “his people” and MG and/or “her people” have and/or take the time to read our silly comment? AND take what we say seriously and act accordingly? SMH! How self-important some can be. We are nobodies to them…..TRUTH.

  • Rosa

    @WOW!: He would have more to talk about if he did anything worth talking about, like, helping Sandy victims instead of just being able to say, I was in NYC for Hurricane Sandy. I think he’s getting more and more delusional about who he really is to the general movie going public. Those who even remember him, only know one or two movies he’s done. He’s basically a pretty forgettable actor in pretty forgettable roles to most of the public, imo.

  • Rosa

    @Rosa: Sorry, that last comment was for Clamsie.

  • what????

    @dripping with Sarcasm: I hope that was it. The trouble with scarcasm is, it’s better understood when said than when written.

  • Bond Girl

    Madalina has a kid. Not her nephew, her nephew’s are other kids in the pics. The kids are beautiful. There is a picture where she says “The biggest love of my life” and she is in NY with her son. Why would that be an insult? people say here “don’t insult Madalina, she doesn’t have a kid”. Well, she does, as a matter of fact. And the kid is not from Butler. Another thing is: why we don’t really know what other better actors and bigger stars than Gerry are doing? because obviously this site covers Gerry for a reason. Why Gerry’s articles have some many people commenting on it? think about it. He is not that smart. Not smart as Tom Cruise or George Clooney. Doesn’t know how to choose his girlfriends.

  • Olivia rules

    Was Olivia imitating Madalina? looks like it

  • Not so fast

    @WOW!: I think you’ll find that his PR people do pop in. They posted twice early on Sat or Sun morning trying to pretend to be a soccer mom wanting to see PFK. They read here, don’t kid yourself. This, and the DM, are the only coverage he gets, and it’s orchestrated by them. Why do you think when he’s about to open a film JJ has a new thread every time he changes his shirt?

  • wake up

    GB’s life has turned into a soap opera. He is probably very worried about this movie. He’s acting like no pressure.

  • penelope

    @Not so fast: PR is the name of the game when any actor/actress has a movie coming out. They are all over TV talk shows and also on the sites like JJ. Not just Gerry, but people in the lower and higher eschelons as well. JJ has Brad, Angelina and little Tommy on here all the time when they are promoting films.

  • Another Opinion

    I’m wondering why is he the only person promoting this movie. I have seen only one interview with Jessica Biel, and nothing at all with Denis Quaid, Uma Thurman and Catherine Zeta Jones.

  • cupcake

    Hello everyone.@Another Opinion. I noticed that to. Very strange.

  • WOW!

    @Not so fast: IMO, I think it’s more likely that GB gets tons of threads on here because of all the hits/posts they generate for jj. It increases ad $$$ for jj. And, like many have mentioned, jj is friends withs with a couple of Gerry’s friends. I’m not saying Gerry’s “people” don’t pay ANY attention to the climate about him….but not nearly as much or as thoroughly as some think……(example; they’re not gonna run to GB and tell him to get rid of his GF because a handful of posters on jj hate/are jealous of her.)

  • Not so fast

    @penelope: True, but others usually have one or two threads, even for the A-listers. JJ gives GB several, sometimes in one day, saying absolutely nothing. This tells me JJ has a relationship with someone on his team. I think someone mentioned earlier that JJ is friends with Ronnie? You have to admit he gets much more attention than anyone else on this site, for doing very little, if anything, worth mentioning.

  • @WOW!

    “We are nobodies to them…..TRUTH.”

    Sorry, but these “nobodies” pay for his crappy movies! People say, “He laughs best who laughs last.” Without us, he is nobody! He knows it, and so he and his team are reading here! And he or his team will pay all these a new threads on JJ. (sorry for my english)

  • Clamsie

    @Another Opinion: They aren’t promoting it because it costs money to get them to do so. They probably ask for more money than Gerry does because they are bigger stars than he is.

  • Clamsie

    @Rosa: ITA. He does sound delusional. He’s living in the past in all his interviews. Look at any other actor — they’re not talking about a film they did ten years ago. They’re in the here and now. He used to give better interviews where he revealed his fun side. Lately his chats seem forced and surreal, definitely staged or set up. He really can’t sell himself any longer. No one is buying it.

  • Another Opinion

    @Clamsie: The ads for the movie are everywhere online. And its been promoted as a Gerard Butler movie. I think that they could draw bigger audiences if they were selling it out as a Biel and Zeta Jones movie. Butler is not the biggest star out there. A lot of people don’t know who he is.

  • wiphoenix


    The trouble with sarcasm is it’s hard when people don’t grasp and you have to explain it to them…. :/

  • whatshedonenow

    @ WOW

    Of course he and his team read here.  No one else covers him apart from when he has a movie to sell, and now the TV shows only use him as a filler guest.  And as a guest he’s not even that entertaining anymore,  because he has buggger all to say about himself because he chooses to do nothing of worth, and he doesn’t have enough interest in other people to observe them and comment on them. His days seems to consist of eating, drinking, sleeping-in,  shaggging young women, partying, travelling to the next party, taking the odd flying lesson and reading the occasional crapppy script. Not very taxing, and at 43 not very interesting.  Also his faux friend Ronnie sends pictures to JJ.  Bigger stars don’t read here, they don’t need to.

  • http://JJ Just a thought

    Maybe the reason he is not giving her name is when MG becomes the hottest biggest star America has ever seen,she can say she did it all by herself.haha

  • wiphoenix

    @Clamsie: Jay Leno seemed sort of baffled, like he didn’t know how to play it off. Even a couple of years ago he was so sweet soft spoken and coherent. Now he’s all over the place. I couldn’t watch the interview, he was so bipolar acting. I’d say drugs.

  • Juicy Lucy

    GB and drugs are nothing new. What is tragic is that EVERY

  • penelope

    @wiphoenix: Then add an LOL remark and people rushing through the posts won’t err. I know I don’t take much time reading for any sarcastic nuances on JJ.

  • DocP

    @Bond Girl:
    If she does have a kid that could be why he doesn’t want to put her name out there. To protect the boy from goss, we all know how mean kids can be. It’s not an insult to have a child at her age, many women do. But if she does have a kid then she has to be extra careful so as to protect him from the media.
    As far as Gerry getting a lot of hits? I’ve read other posts and there are some celebrities that get 3 times more hits than Gerry yet they get only a third of the stories. I agree that JJ has some agreement with Gerry’s people.
    Another thought as to why he squirmed last night and was hesitant to talk much about Maddie was because he lacks confidence in his acting abilities. Maybe he thinks the only fans he can get are female ones and he doesn’t want to risk losing them. Gerry has always been more fan friendly than many other celebrities. If that’s the case then he needs to throw caution to the wind and step out of his comfort zone. He will never grow as an actor until he does that. JMHO ;)

    Good lordy, that Munn chick is a worse Zoolander than MG. Wish they could get how silly they look.

  • question

    someone was talking about rupert (gerry’s UK publicist) and then put a link. Are they implying that is rupert’s website. by the way i think rupert got him nobel prize peace concert thing…

  • Juicy Lucy

    @Juicy Lucy: What I meant to say is that Gerry and his drug use is not news and EVERY actor/actress in HW is replacable. Sandra Bullock, Reese Witherspoon and Brad Pitt are recent examples of past box office stars whose latest films have been flops. Gerry isn’t alone.

    Gerry’s fauxmance isn’t any different that Bradley Cooper’s fake romance with Zoe Saldana. Ms. Saldana is a known stalker and is using their friendship for publicity to upgrade her in the eyes of producers and directors. Neither man can state with pride that they are in a relationship. (Brad couldn’t stop gushing about his relationship with Renee Z and with Zoe he can’t say anything which is a big tip off that it’s just FWB).

    Fans who are brave enough to stick with Gerry need to understand that he is and always will be a man-boy incapable of growing up and having a mature relationship with a mature woman.

  • Alina
  • DocP

    She was deliberately making fun of run way models, she doesn’t act like that normally. Did you watch the whole show?? I thought it was pretty clear why she was acting that way. She actually struck a pose that MG does all the time:)

  • WOW!

    @@WOW!: I know that the so-called “nobodies” pay to go see his films and support his career. That wasn’t the subject.
    No. I firmly believe that GB himself doesn’t have or take the time to, or care to, sit and read the 500-1,200 comments that sometimes follow a thread. MAYBE once in a blue moon he’ll see the actual article jj wrote. But that’s it. At most, a Girl Friday in Alan’s or his publicist’s office is told to go online and check out the overall climate about him. Do you seriously think GB cares about our arguments, insults, spammers and trolls? If anything, if he had the time, he’d probably go to the fan sites for an ego stroke…..

  • Strike a pose

    @petra: I believe Olivia was joking around, whereas Macaroni actually does this in public for real. See twitpic from LA club this past weekend. Hilarious stuff.

  • whatshedonenow

    @ Just a thought

    I know you are joking. But why do you think they are even bothering to
    push her in HW?  It doesn’t make sense.  She will never be a big movie star there.  She’s literally too big for a start. If she has high heels on she’s almost  6’4″, so no matter how good looking she is, she’ll always look like a giant, tranny, freak, lolloping around the screen like an ungainly giraffe.  Also her accent is way too strong, and like GB it’s highly unlikely that she’ll master a good American, or English, or Irish accent. Most pretty southern and eastern European actresses only play sultry, sex bomb types, or crazy sultry, sex bomb types in HW movies. She won’t do well in HW   She should stick to Italian or Romanian movies and/or marry up.


  • food 4 thought

    @Strike a pose: Exactly. She was making fun of the bone-thin, very tall models she was competing with for parts. I thought Olivia Munn was pretty funny. And hilarious that the very self-conscious posturing that she was ridiculing is daily SOP for Mada-poserina.

    Be careful butler not to tread on Angel’s wings, very dangerous for you. How fake you will stoop for a green back. Karma will come once again for your wrongdoing, bring you to your knees. Do not start something without completion, now its do or die for butler and his other half. Time for the smack down, I call upon my Gabriel for good measure and sheer discipline. People that thumb me down just don’t want to see truth. Believe it or not butler knows he has another half, yet he’s been hurting her, yet these two are mean’t to be together from the beginning. He’s been playing games for years now and knows it, India is where his spiritual quest started, connecting to his other through intense energies, once she was awaken, all the pain,madness, and sadness was in full force,its a joke and cruel, hes not good hes very very bad, will have much answering, I wished this wasn’t true, but it is. Things will continue to descend for butler, he cannot just make his other half poor without ramifications, pos/neg, two of a kind, not good to project negativity on your other half. Just for the record, butler’s other half is a real angel, so when I say poor I only mean with material stuff, however this angel has a heart of gold with magic, which you can’t buy. Forgive me for stating facts. Love,dargabriel

  • Juicy Lucy

    @whatshedonenow: On the contrary, and I do agree with what you said, actress Geena Davis is 6’2 and won an Oscar for The Accidental Tourist. I’m not suggesting that MG will ever win an acting award (well, maybe if she wanted a career in p*o*r*n) in the US or in Europe, but a woman’s height should come in second to acting ability. Vanessa Redgrave is 5’11 and a great thespian. Perhaps MG would well in comedies-seeing that her life is such a parody already.

  • Hello

    @what????: That was sarcasm and obviously not to be taken seriously. No doubt in reply to GB’s role choices. He did a great job in that movie. Love it and Brian Cox wasn’t to shabby either along with VR and RF.

  • Untamable Shrew

    @Another Opinion: And Zeta Jones is the one with the Oscar.

  • P

    @what????: That WAS saracasm when I answered the question “Who would hire the man” or something to that effect. My point was that for all the people on these threads saying Mr. Butler’s career is over, there’s the plain, hard evidence that he is respected by his fellow thespians, otherwise he wouldn’t be landing roles opposite the likes of Ms. Redgrave who, like Ralph fiennes, is a living legend.

  • P

    @what????: I was being facetious. When people like Ralph Fiennes approach you to work in their directorial debut, to star opposite a legend like Vanessa Redgrave, that’s a milestone in your career. When the critics, who LOVED Coriolanus, come forward and express their amazement that Mr. Butler can honestly ACT when given the proper material, that’s another one.

  • WOW!

    @whatshedonenow: Oh , absolutely. Agree to disagree it is. Know what? If I was a celeb, lol, I couldn’t handle reading tons of negative comments about myself. My skin isn’t thick enough.
