    @Liz:

    I think so to—thanks for responding girls.

    @food 4 thought:

    Uma looks like she would rather be anywhere but there. Know who the African American lady is? I’m assuming she had a role in the movie. She’s beautiful.

  • SouthernBelle

    @baby:

    Considering what’s rattling around in most people’s minds, why would Asians or any group want to read minds? If they can, congrats.

  • Nope

    Uma looks likes she doesn’t want to stand too close to him in case she catches something off him – shithespianitis.  Why do I get the feeling most good actors are gonna be like that with him from now on

    @Strands of Garland:
    Just my two cents … the woman in the video is definitely not MG, but the woman in the crusty shirt photo does look like Madalina to me.
    ____________

    I agree. I see she is still willing to be in the shadows–for now. We’ll see how she does when the movie opens in Rome.

  • Strands of Garland

    Amy is behind him in this video — looks great—she has a beautiful smile.

    I agree, she looks great! I like her, she seems to be a very hard working woman. She is also behind him in this video, filming with her cell phone.

    Thanks strands for the pics and to the gals as well.

  • Strands of Garland

    OK maybe someone can explain something to me——why would MG show up at her BF’s premiere with that awful stringy hair and that terrible shirt she always wears?
    Do you think she just stopped by unexpected?

    Also in that last video—Gerry looked to his left and said OMG—-do you think he saw JB? Just tossing that one out there.

  • Nope

    @ Totally Useless Information

    She’ll go into Zoolander mode in Rome.  Italian men are generally quite chauvinistic –  Silvio Berlusconi anyone. So GB will be right at home there, showing off his flashy, trashy model, like a third- hand red ferrari. Actually, I am surprised she hasn’t gone after Berlusconi’s son, Pier. He’s the same age as Butler but looks ten years younger and is one hundred times richer.

  • ZeroOutOfFourStars

    Blech… fashion fail all the way around. GB needs a better tailor — the suit is way too tight and the black-on-black is a mess. Uma looks as if she doesn’t want to be there and just grabbed something out of her closet, poor thing. MG hasn’t posted anything to her FB in 21 hours — is that a record for her? I expected coquettish posts about NYC.

  • Totally Useless Information

    @Nope
    I am mostly curious if he will appear in public with her in Rome. Maybe they have decided that will be the formal introduction of their relationship.

  • wiphoenix

    @I know Asians can read minds!!:

    Total crap, lies and nonsense. Humans aren’t superheroes and never will be, Asians aren’t better than anyone else. All humans are the same.

  • cupcake

    I don’t know about any of this. Not only is the question will he been with her in rome but also will she be on the red carpert for the nobel peace concert.

  • Nope

    @Totally Useless Information

    Probably. It will be the death knell for his career though.

  • big apple

    @SouthernBelle: The woman in the video is wearing a black winter coat, it is bloody freezing tonight – imagine she may have taken it off. Must have been instructed to look non descript. Must be tough.

  • big apple

    @food 4 thought: Noticed that too – Uma is like get me out of here. Mind she has been in far worse movies so she really needn’t cop a ‘tude. Anyone able to sit through the movie with the thumb?

  • big apple

    If not for Kill Bill, Uma is in danger of being the female version of GB in terms of questionable movie role selections after showing early promise

  • Lea

    Jessica looks absolutely stunning!! Loved that she took away the bangs, so beautiful now!!!

  • Gigi

    Jessica did not stand next to Gerry in any photos. Probably did not want to tick off Justin or Maddy since Gerry spurt she was the one who got away. He h$&@()) his way for any promos for his films!

    Mads dressed down to not overshadow Anyone. But as all said she is on the red carpet with him.

  • Terrible Twos

    OMG. Gerry is dressed so nice! If I saw him in person like that I would pass out. Swoon.
    I like Jessica, she’s beautiful, but every time I see her on the red carpet these days she’s wearing something weird….I dunno, funky? I don’t know what to make of it. :/ Maybe I have no fashion sense, LOL.

  • Liz

    @Gigi:
    Um …. no …. MG was not on the red carpet.
    She was inside the venue, she didn’t walk the red carpet. Believe it or not, there is a difference.

  • mo

    Who wants to see the shit real? I not!

  • ….

    @SouthernBelle:
    The black woman looks like a horse. Major horse face.

    Even the DM is downplaying it as a GB film!
    And what’s with Alan and Fryguy (?) having to hold his hand to buy a coffee/redbull? Does he never live/stay anywhere with a kettle and basic supplies to make a drink? Weird.
    The way his films have bombed in recent years and his transient lifestyle, not to mention prior rumoured substance abuse, all his hangers on……his finances must be in trouble by now. Expect more paid appearances at shoebox openings. Is his la property still signed over to Comrie inc to limit liability? What about the chelsea flat, any nyc property registers?

  • Gerry’s ex?

    That looks like Gerry’s ex Jasmine Burgess.

  • Diana

    @Liz:

    Madalina was on the red carpet the entire time. Tomorrow you might see the pictures. She looked stunning as usual. And Gerry could not take his eyes off of her. Mum was there too right next to her.

  • wiphoenix

    @Diana: He seems like his eyes we’re off her the whole time, unless she was taking his pictures.

  • thecareersovermate

    The headline says it all.

    Playing the F ield was the original concept, but numerous reshoots and edits, and it became the dire mish mash that is Playing for Keeps. The director should be to blame, unless he had interference from a a couple of exec producers. A common problem in all of GBs flops.
    No wonder CZJ is absent, and UT and JB look less than pleased to see Gerry. Perhaps the adage ‘Gerry is always liked by his costars’., as trotted out by phannies across the mothersites, isn’t true anymore. Blotted too many copybooks.

  • thecareersovermate

    @thecareersovermate: unless he tapped all three of them during filming, lol! There were rumours last year that CZJs breakdown was precipitated by something that happened with Gerry during the film. And Uma just looks p8ssed with him!

  • SouthernBelle

    @thecareersovermate:

    He keeps talking about India, maybe he’ll try Bollywood, or he could become MG’s agent, or maybe try stand-up and amuse the world with his near death story.

  • cupcake

    Where are these pics that diana keeps mentioning we would seen at least one of them.

  • Mia

    @Gerry’s ex?:
    It’s definitely not Jasmine Burgess.

  • wiphoenix

    @cupcake: I think Diana is a guy or a lesbian. Most women don’t describe other women like she does. Why try to sell her to us? She’ll be gone in a year, irregardless. If she’s all that she’ll be dumping him. Notice it’s all one sided. Gerry isn’t adored at all, merely adoring.

  • Nope

    Uma and Jessica don’t look too impressed with him, do they. He must have done some serious bridge burning.

  • God Bless yoou all!

    “By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me – a prayer to the God of my life.” – Psalm 42:8

  • Nope

    How many leading roles does he have left before it’s over for him? One, two maybe?

  • cupcake

    Guys we have a new thread.

  • oy

    Today I opened a file drawer. Gerard Butler showed up for it.

  • so…………..

    I wonder what blew up Uma’s nose tonight. She looks like she didn’t stay for long.Her body language is really telling.

  • http://www.jj.com Clamsie

    I see PFK couldn’t preem in LA cuz Les Miz had a huge red carpet event last night there. I don’t think PFK will do well in theaters based on the fact that most of his fans have fled for greener pastures or their local nursing homes. This film will end up in the bargain bin where Walmartians will paw at it with grubby fat fingers and smirk, “hell to the no!”

    .

  • http://www.jj.com Clamsie

    Sorry I was wrong. Les Miz preemed in London last night. I was so shocked at how fat RC was in pics I didn’t stop to read the article about the preem. He looks gross. Maybe he can portray America’s fattest POTUS, Taft, in a biopic? Maybe he can join Butler in a foodfest and they can pack away fries out the wazoo and gain major poundage. Then they can play old fat ugly twins who live in their Mum’s basement.

    Gerry’s career is virtually over. Looks like he’s got nothing coming up in the future except OHF sometime next year. He’s not filming anything anytime soon. No wonder he’s desperate to get his bloated puss out there by appearing at every envelope opening.

  • FYI

    Gerard’s mother was NOT at the premiere tonight.

  • Devil’s Advocate

    This does not bode well for this movie, though it’s still early: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/playing_for_keeps_2012/

  • Tina

    @Devil’s Advocate:
    Maybe Gerry should just stop making movies and start b/a/nging models half his age full time. His career seems to be going nowhere anyway. It’s a dead end and most of his fans are tired of him.

  • wrong

    @Gigi: She is not on the red carpet with him she is there just as many of his past girlfriends have been there at events just relegated to the background. You can be sure this one doesn’t like been relegated to the background.
