    Gerard Butler is SO Hollywood Says:

    Gerard Butler’s career is over and he’s just out and about making a fool of himself at this point.
    .
    His films are getting terrible reviews and bombing at the box office. The only films of his that have done well are the ones with another star that people want to see. No one cares about seeing him. He’s got terrible instincts when it comes to scripts and has lost all touch with the street. He’s become so Hollywood he doesn’t even realize how misogynistic this Playing for Keeps film is.
    .
    And his 43 year old rear is second runner-up after Leonardo DiCaprio and Adrien Brody for a 24 year old underwear model who –> in a twist that surprises NO ONE <– wants to be an actress.
    .
    Gerard Butler is so lost and clueless that he's probably convinced himself that Madalina Ghenea really likes him and would have attached herself to his hip in the way she has even if he wasn't rich and famous. He's probably drunk so much of the Kool Aid that he actually believes that.
    .
    He could have been something cool. Instead, he's just a cliche. Too bad. Hope the money and recently juvenile pootytang he's sold out for is worth it.

    McGerard Butler Says:

    The man makes awful movies.
    People have even stopped going to see him in the dumbed down popcorn crap he makes for the undemanding masses.
    He dates girls half his age who most of the world has seen virtually naked.
    He dyes the massive amount of gray out of his hair and wears make up in a desperate attempt to look younger. Very desperate.
    He looks more like Randy Quaid than Dennis Quaid.

    Why do people like Gerard Butler at all?

    First of all, his girlfriend is 18 years younger than him which is pretty standard for hollywood. Secondly, she started out in her career modeling lingerie for print work. She has never been photographed nude, which you can’t say about Demi Moore, Wendy Williams, Jessica Simpson, Gisele Blunchen, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr, Britney Spears, should I go on?

    What is this hating on Butler’s gal? Biel, who is lovely, had her series role reduced on the sanctimonious Seventh Heaven because of a provocative magazine spread. She’s had a number of surgical procedures done to “enhance” her appearance. The Butler crones don’t heap the hate on her, just the woman he’s with. Maybe they could take a few minutes and tell us how life is in the monastery.

    Gosh just observing that it looks like GB’s fans are starting to vanish slowly and only very few unrealistic supporters left finally ppl will see the light of the day and move on, his shallow life has been exposed its laughable because he actually had a loyal fanbase signs of bad times i guess feel sorry for him that he couldve taken another direction and made so much of himself but unfortunately his poor judgement and choices have wrecked his career

    big apple Says:

    @nimi: It must have been his PR team that leaked that story about Biel is the one that got away and for once she was not pleased about free PR since it came out on the heels of her wedding. Then again it may have been *** for tat as her team was clearing the one sending out the stories about them hooking up on the set of PFK so she could make Justin jealous. If you are going to be a player don’t pout when you get played.

    Gerry is posing with Len Cariou, Alan’s only other major client. He plays Tom Selleck’s dad in Blue Blood. A good character actor.

    Another Opinion Says:

    What is creditworthy is how much money is being spent on the promotion of this movie. What’s the necessity of having a premiere for the movie in Italy, for example, if it’s not attracting the audiences in the rest of the world? It’s a pointless waste of money. With regard to Butler, I find his entourage embarrassing. Why is he dragging Alan and Amy with him on the red carpet? And why are they taking photos/videos of him behind his back? And why is Alan hugging Butler’s fans? Maybe he believes he is a movie star now. I haven’t seen another actor whose assistant and agent are there for him 24/7. They all give the impression that Butler is incapable of handling anything on his own, even buying a cup of coffee. There is definitely something off with the people who surround him.

    I always wonder how after all these years Butler manages to keep people from taking photos of his girlfriends at these event even MG though you know she was doing everything she can to get into the photos last night. The others were likely more complacent. But what a tedious bore to have to spend all these events making sure no one gets a good photo of your dates. Rather takes away the enjoyment. Join the real world GB or make the girlfriend stay at home. Like this one would,

    big apple Says:

    @Another Opinion: Actually Butler has been doing well overseas in general whether that still applies we will see. Muccino is an Italian director so he’s tooting his own horn. Someone posted an article from a site about why movies suck today and one reason is they keep the plot lines simple for the overseas audience who are bringing in the cash on movies, even if they bomb here. They can recoup their costs with a strong overseas box office. And of course another reason may be to give the Romanian debutante an opportunity to shine. They won’t let her officially on the red carpet here but on her turf?

    He should, but he won’t. After reading those reviews he’ll be in major panic mode.  He’ll probably keep promoting PFK like crazy, then do the same for his other two cr*p to mediocre films. Also he now has the Romanian in tow, who’ll be making him feel more insecure and panicky, because he knows she’s bad PR and  essentially a dodgy person.  And the kid gloves are off around the media circuit. He’s now seen as a bit of a laughing stock. They are openly saying he makes bad movies. He has solidifyed his reputation as a lazy actor who’s only in it for the sex, money and fame. With GB it’s going to have to get a whole lot worse before it gets better.

Because you are such an unhappy person. Get a life and quit being so hateful and intolerant to your fellow mankinds opinions. My lunch is over and this is the last reply you will get from me. BTW, it’s not about winning in life, it’s about being happy with yourself. I suggest you stop posting at JJ and go findbsomebinner happiness. Perhaps India would be a good place to start :))))

    This whole thing seems very weird. Is the whole cast POd at Butler for something? Or are they trying to distance themselves because it’s not going to be a hit? And truly, if you are in a real relationship with someone, the place to be seen with them, having fun, is the after party. It’s all very sketchy IMO.

    the real silicon valley Says:

    @SnowFlake: Hollywood was into the porn industry a few years back and had a couple of shows on the back story, one with Seymore Butts a guy who is a producer, director and porn actor and the other was on various female porn stars. What was interesting is almost all these people had difficulty maintaining real relationships and marriages, EVEN when they dated other porn stars jealousy was a major issue, for the guys and the girls. Sure guys would think it is great to date a porn star at first, most women not which is the problem Seymore had, most women wouldn’t give him the second date but then even his porn star girlfriends got jealous. It takes a very very secure male and one with a very certain mind set to have a woman who makes a living with her clothes off and swimsuit and lingerie models are not that much off that line, especially nowadays. I remember one of the female porn stars invited one of her male fans to the set and then asked him if he wanted to join in well let’s just say performing on cue on film is a gift only a few men have – shame those guys don’t get compensated the same as the females.

    Hi cupcake!
    The question is will he, remember that huge ego of his. I am one who has tried to keep positive thoughts for him, but I’m telling you, it’s gettin’ tough. I just don’t know what to think anymore!

    I have a little scenario for you and the rest of the posters: A movie role comes up, GB wants it, knows he’d perfect for it, but is told to his face by the director/producers- whoever the powers may be “No way, you’re box office poison and we’re not taking the chance”. Imagine this happening sveral times in a row. How do you all think he would handle it? I’m half way thinking this might be what he’ll eventually be facing if he doesn’t get himself in order. How do ya’ll feel?

    Went to the cinema last weekend (UK) , and CM flashed up for a second in the ‘autumn’ roundup. A quick look online,and CM was never shown in the t wo main cinema chains, Odeon or Cineworld.
    They showed the full PFK trailer, opening 1/1/13, but if reviews are that abysmal what’s the bet it won’t appear? I won’t be seeing it-there’s a much more appealing, original, quality cast flick opening the same day-Quartet. With Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, and Dustin Hoffman’s quite british humour, that’s our new year film sorted. Why anyone would pay good money to see PFK , a corny, hackneyed, badly acted piece with a cast who no longer seem on friendly terms, which gives the whole plot away in the trailer unless to ogle Gerrys legs, I hsve no idea!

    I know this poster is LOL because they have said things that are give always from previous posts from LOL. She’s gotten smarter in that she doesn’t call the rest of us old hags but she has slipped up in making comments that were made to LOL. I would just thumb her down then flag every single one of her posts to JJ. That’s what I’m doing. After awhile JJ will get sick of it and hopefully ban her. remember LOL hates GFW and that’s what she called you when you outed her. She’s a desperate lonely woman. I think one of the other posters said her name was Suzanne Cummings and that she married a much older man with kids. I guess he’s regretting his choice because she seems to have way to much time on her hands.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I think that’s the issue most of his long term fans are having. The ego and delusion appear to have completely taken over this year, and it’s not just people on JJ who have noticed it or who are commenting on it, despite what the resident troll would have you believe.
    +
    The ‘girlfriend’ is just one example of him completely contradicting everything he’s ever said about himself. The way he’s coming across in interviews (both for CM and PFK) is really making me wonder whether on his trip to rehab, he was replaced by a pod person a la ‘Invasion of the Bodysnatchers’.
    +
    He has nothing on his work schedule for the foreseeable future, other than promotion work for Movie 43. That’s if they actually choose to use him over the other actors involved.

    I know I’m not the only fan who’s completely mystified by what’s been going on over this past couple of years.

    Devil's Advocate Says:

    @you’re paranoid: are you joking? Or are you a pr plant?

    Seriously, 17 critics have reviewed it on that site and one liked it, hence the 0% rating. 0% of critics liked it, and that’s seriously bad. These aren’t the kinds of critics like NY Times, who might be more inclined to hold off on great reviews if it isn’t an art house film or the next Oscar contender… It’s Associated Press, Kansas City Star and Canada.com, and other small local papers without much national press… Wait until they come out and do more national damage!

    I don’t know what he’s doing, or his handlers or agents, but seriously he needs help and fast. It isn’t his girlfriend, whose now become a deflection tool to draw focus away from this impending disaster … I may not think she’s attractive, but everyone has their own tastes and enough do find her attractive to support a lucrative career for her as a model.

    Now I really hope he does read these because here’s some advice, Mr. Butler: triage your career. now. I still believe you are capable, and as someone else on this board said, anyone could be managing you better. You need some serious, good guidance immediately. If I saw you on the street, I’d go right up to you and tell you as much and maybe even try to give you some myself. Get some smarter people to surround you, invest in yourself and your craft, get some good advice on better scripts before people stop sending them to you altogether, and cut out the overexposure before people get sick of you.
    Maybe take a page from Kevin Bacon’s game plan – smaller, transformative yet memorable rolls. Or look at Ryan Gosling (super hot and an amazing, talented actor) – from Blue Valentine to Lars and the Real Girl to Drive to The Notebook to Ides of March, his acting is transformative, versatile, engrossing, deep and nuanced. Or Clooney who acts in his own persona, but does it in a nuanced, emotive, complex way that he pulls off successfully.
    You’re running yourself ragged because your film people are trying to use you for your star power to salvage stinker after stinker, but as your other costars in PFK have figured out, you’ll end up being the face of the failure because you’re so out there. How is your agent allowing this? They’re over-exposing you and it is your celebrity that will take the hit here because they have made you the face of this film. After that Dream House debacle, Daniel Craig and the other big named stars refused to promote it so they could insulate their reputations from harm … they saw that shipwreck coming well beforehand and took career saving action. How didn’t you? Your agent (or whoever is advising you) should be slapped. It is a good thing the chances of me meeting you are about nil, because I’d pretty much redo your entire career on the spot and upbraid you for letting this mess go on so long. It isn’t a bad thing to get a little help – just get it from the right people. I know you are capable of so much better, but I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be able to believe that.
    I wish you the best and so I do hope you somehow see this and wake up, Mr. Butler, and that maybe it will help. It’d be really sad if this was the beginning of the end of your career.

    @whatshedonehow:
    I’m simply telling you the truth, I never used vulgarity or slammed her for her opinions. It’s her actions and attitudes that I have an issue with. To say I’m bulling her by calling her out on her actions is stretching it a bit. That’s like a child saying to the mom that they don’t love them because they won’t let them do or say anything they want. If she could learn how to play nice then I wouldn’t call her out on her bad behavior because then she wouldn’t have any. This means being respectful to ALL posters, not picking and choosing. If you don’t like a posters opinion then give it a thumb down and move on but to attack that poster is just narrow minded meanness. FYI, if JJ does finally ban her then they will actually ban her IP address so it doesn’t matter which moniker she uses. Which is why I flag any comment that uses vulgarity or is meant to bully any poster. Not just my posts but others also, even if I don’t agree with their opinion.

    That’s the rest of January sorted, so excited by this. Live singing? It’ll blow POTO away, and one of Gerrys best performances will be downgraded to a poor imitation.
    It really is over Gerry. You’ve been found out. You’ve been found lacking. The mind and PR games have backfired. Give it a rest and try property management or something out of the limelight. And if you really miss acting, go back to college and take some lessons, get a proper agent, and listen to those outside your inner circle and your ego, because we see the bigger picture.
    Ditch Alan, amy, Rupert, fryguy, Ronnie, and listen to the public.

    Plastic Fantastic Says:

    The critics/consumers slams his CHOICES more than his TALENT (sometimes both, but still), so he does have a *very* small AND narrowly closing window of opportunity to get back in the good graces of his fans and/or garner some new ones, and the studios will have no other choice but to work with him (it’s ALLLLL about the money, honey).
    —-
    Right now, I’m just not seeing him sitting-the-he!!-down somewhere quiet and quaint and doing the INTERNAL work while he has this jittery, skittery, twittery ego/personality, lackluster management team with their own tunnel-vision, and a “young” panty model who’s struggling to be an actress, and really SHOULD be out there trying to be seen for her (claimed) age and profession, not depending on him and his precarious predicament. The whole packaging this time around makes him look like EVEN MORE of a joke/cliche. Yeah, Clooney and DiCap do it, and they bomb at the box office, but hey, they got awards, acclaims.
    —-
    Like I said, he has potential, but garbage in, garbage out. Maybe it’s time to stop relying on the randomness of luck, looks, and charm, and pull out some effort, focus, and integrity for 2013.

    .
    Wrong. I haven’t been here in over 3 weeks and don’t plan to very much. There isn’t much to read here other than inane comments about how MG is so bad for him and how he is a user and abuser because he’s dating her. It’s just hateful jealous rhetoric from old hags with no options. Old hags like the used and abused and dried-up old poss EVE. Eve how old are you, 60? Yet still running after Butler on the internet hoping he would leave his hot tight young GF and start bedding old hags like you? How many times have these same comments been said by you, old hag? How many times did you rag and trash MG and say he needs to leave her? It’s just so much I can read without puking. And oh yes, I forgot to mention, I just got engaged and have been really busy focusing on telling the blessed news to all our family and friends. That beats reading inane comments from old hags. So how do you feel about the fact MG is here to stay, and you are an aging shriveled up old lady with no se/x or prospects of s/ex? It’s killing you, eh?
    .
    Oh, another thing, I have all the right to post anything hateful I want, if I choose to, including calling you an old ho braless cuuuuuuuuuunt. And guess what, genius, I care nil about you thumbing me, idiot. You can thumb me all you want, I still post under LOL when I post, not under someone else. I am not like most of you spineless old hos that have no backbone and need acceptance from other old hag hos on the internet. And anyone who used LOL since thanksgiving is not me, including that crazy spammer from a few threads ago. I was just checking to see what I missed and I see already 8 threads went by but you can’t read a thing in them, other than the usual nasty anti-MG comments and that crazy spammer. I guess it’s KARMA. You were all so annoyed by me giving you some harsh medicine, now you have a spammer for pages on end. LOL, how amusing and befitting. So go fuuuuuuuck your old hag self with your low-battery vib/rator, ya jealous old idiot. Maybe you should change these batteries, you are wearing them out by the amount you are using them, EVEEEE.

    Reading these scathing reviews is probably far more entertaining than the movie itself. I honestly feel bad for GB – this is one h*ll of a spectacular failure. But he did it to himself, and this has been a long time coming. If nearly drowning was not enough of a wake-up, maybe this will be. Sometimes the universe kicks us down the hole for our own good.

    The reviews so far: To me, it’s like when a kid boldly commands the focus of the family/social gathering and proclaims, “Look what I can do!” and then stumbles and convulses in an attempt to impress. You know they don’t know what they *really* look like, but you still applaud, encourage, because while it’s excruciating, it’s endearing all at once. This is an ok look on a 4 year old, not a 43 year old.

    Susie Says:

    I feel really sorry for Gerry right now. It seems like his agency, CAA, has abandoned him – especially after “300.” It’s their job to secure him good roles in good movies. Yes, I’m sure that part of the blame does go to him. I will also say that this is not the best time out in Hollywood. Not too many good scripts, money is very tight and we all know for the most part, it’s all about the all-mighty dollar. Many, many people are staying home and buying/renting DVDs or pay-per-view movies. For me, most of the time when a critic loves a movie, I don’t like it at all. I just want to go and be entertained. So, I will go see “Playing for Keeps” this weekend!

    The Pitch Meeting for ‘Playing for Keeps’
    .
    STUDIO EXEC #4: Well, I’m convinced. This movie sounds like it will be very familiar and sellable and won’t cost very much to make and can run on a continuous loop on TBS in three years. But who will star in it? Who has the right mix of generic handsomeness and forgettable charm?
    .
    STUDIO EXEC #1: I have five words for you: Gerard Butler.
    .
    STUDIO EXEC #2: Perfect! The man is gold on the silver screen!
    .
    STUDIO EXEC #3: He makes the silver screen turn gold!
    .
    STUDIO EXEC #4: He goldenizes all silver things, especially screens!
    .
    STUDIO EXEC #1: It’s true. In the six years since he starred in “300,” he’s made 82 films, and almost half of them were profitable once they factored in DVD sales and made some numbers up.
    .
    STUDIO EXEC #2: Can his ex-wife be someone ridiculously beautiful who’s too young for him?
    .
    STUDIO EXEC #1: I have Jessica Biel lined up.
    .
    STUDIO EXEC #3: Excellent. Now, let’s talk titles. It sounds like this isn’t a “holiday” movie, but it’s the kind of movie that doesn’t really have a story that we release in December because it’s cheerful and your mom will want to see it.
    .
    STUDIO EXEC #4: Moms love Gerard Butler.

    fran Says:

    @Susie:
    Most of the blame is Gerry’s fault, not CAA’s. Since the development of his own production company, Gerry has been choosing his own scripts to develop and finance. It seems to me since the development of his production company Gerry’s career has taken a down turn. It gives him too much control over the script and director. Gerry & Alan have been making a mess out if these scripts. It is no coincidence that Gerry’s best work in years was in “Coriolanus”, a project where he could not tell the director what to do and he could not meddle with the script. Gerry needs to dissolve his production company and stick to acting.

    Totally agree

    As for Butler. Blimey. This film is getting absolutely mullard. My days,   the sharks are well and truly circling for GB now.  It seems Butler has not only managed to p*ss off posters on this site, but quite a few people in HW too.  Can’t say he didn’t have it coming.

    He needs to beat a hasty retreat back to the Scottish Glenns and regroup.

    He has to do four things and do them quick sharp: drop the humongous ego, drop the dodgy acquaintances, drop the Romanian.   And last but not least – grow the f**k up.

    Zero Dark Thirty is getting rave reviews, and some have called it the best film of 2012. Don’t know about that, as it has some stiff competition. It stars the lovely Jessica Chastain, who GB is clearly fond of, and who he should commence dating immediately. I’ve always felt they would make a great couple. It would be a positive enhancement to his career, as opposed to his current distasteful and unpopular choice.

    Clamsie Says:

    @TherealWhatshedonenow: He doesn’t need to drop Maddie. She’s got nothing to do with his failing film career. He shot his acting wad a few years ago when nothing happened for him after 300. He was supposed to be in big demand by everyone and didn’t he drop Spielberg’s name in an interview, too? Claimed he was in talks with everyone because they loved him as Leonidas.

    I agree with all of you. He needs to rethink his strategy, and fire Alan. He needs to get serious and find better management or he’ll continue to flounder in trashy films like PFK. Either he’s really not a good actor or he isn’t looking hard enough for better roles or someone isn’t willing to give him the better stuff to work with.

    Something is very wrong with his whole scene and it’s not his love life. I don’t see him as a leading man and maybe he needs to start thinking of smaller roles instead of trying to open films that are bombing at the box office.

  233. 233
    Icicycles Says:

    You know PFK was made a 1-1/2 yrs ago. During that time there were some very disturbing stories going around about him. I think since then his personal life has caught up with him. Time is money and money is time. No producer/director can afford an actor that wants to party all night and have to work with them unrested and not committed to do the best job they can. Rumors of the type of women he associated with and the parties/trips he went on do not make a bankable actor. So all this started along time ago with him and now it has caught up with him. He hasn’t been offered a good script in many years, esp. after 300 because the fame and money from that movie fueled his abuse of his personal life. With the economy as it is, and the type of movies and actors only really bankable movies are going to hit the market. Gerry doesn’t fit into todays entertainment quality. I don’t know what it will take for him to turn it around but it may be awhile.

  234. 234
    Reviews Says:

    @Clamsie: I agree with everything you said here, Clams, but he does need to drop her. His personal life is part of what got him to where he is right now. He doesn’t need to draw any more negative attention to himself, and that’s what will happen if the rags start paying attention. She plays into his bad rep as an aging, partying, sex-crazed, modelizing, out-of-control dude who’s going through a mid-life/professional meltdown.

    Olivia Says:

    There is precedent in HW for top actors to go through a career collapse and make a comeback several years later. However, this only happens when the public is truly rooting for the actor to come back. It’s public goodwill that determines whether someone gets a second chance. The problem with the Romanian is she does not foster that goodwill for Gerry. An underwear model half his age, who is sleeping her way into acting roles, makes Gerry look very bad. Gerry needs the public to like him again and his shallow lifestyle does not make him likable.

  237. 237
    Reviews Says:

    @Olivia: Well said. My point exactly. She makes him look like a middle-aged lech. Or gullible and shallow. Take your pick. Women do not like girls who take us back to the dark ages, and I’m afraid he needs the largesse of his female fan base to succeed.

  238. 238
    What's Even Worse ......... Says:

    He hasn’t been in a film that’s made good bank in what? Two years? Those awful romantic comedies, The Ugly Truth and The Booty Hunter?
    MGP flopped. Chasing Mavericks flopped. PFK is going to flop and is getting scathing reviews.
    What’s worse is that he’s got NOTHING coming up to redeem him.

    He got a period of no films shooting or being released here for a while. That means that he’s either going to be out-of-sight-out-of-mind or if he IS heard from, for reasons having to do with the antics of his personal life, not his career, further entrenching his reputation as a tabloid star instead of a movie star. A man who shags girls young enough to be his daughters and who have trashy track records.

    His next film to come out is OHF, yet another assault on America movie that is not only unoriginal in the grand scheme of things, but unoriginal for the time that it’s being released because Jamie Foxx’s and Channing Tatum’s movie about the same thing comes out just a few months later.

    After that its what? The Sam Worthington/Matthew McConnoughey/Gerard Butler take on The Expendables 3?

    Even if Gerard Butler found a really great project that was just right for him and had all of the elements of success (unlikely given his bad judgment so far), he’s not going to shoot whatever that is for at least a year from now, probably more, which means that wouldn’t come out for several years. So he’d be something like 46?!?!

    We’re supposed to believe that Gerard Butler is going to have a comeback validating him as a respectable actor after the age of 45???? When he’s already struggling to keep the grays at bay and the wrinkles and age spots from spelling out “I’M MIDDLE AGED!”???

    He’s done. I really think this is it for him and he’ll be best remembered for his tabloid headlines rather than his movies. I’m not saying that because I’m happy about it. I think it’s sad because I think he has talent. I really liked some of his earlier work. I think he just got caught up in the Hollyweird stardom, started believing all of the people telling him that he’s so wonderful, and ended up making all of the mistakes that are typical of someone who has his head shoved up his own a~~hole.

    I only thought he got ripped to shreds here but he can’t possibly have a thick enough skin to take all this that is being said about him and not have it bother him deeply. I do feel he knew this was going to happen that is why he did so much press in the hopes of reaching an audience for the movie. No matter what anyone says I know he got a rude awakening to these movies failing so badly.
    Where does he go from here, who knows, but it is time for him to take a good look at what is happening in his life and career and try and make some sensible changes.

    A number of people have agreed that GB makes poor career choices, but could another problem be that the man just isn’t a very good actor? He not only hasn’t done anything since 300, but what did he do before? Even though 300 is considered his breakthru movie, wasn’t the real star of 300 technology? I really didn’t notice any outstanding acting from anyone in the film. Granted the projects he stars in leave a lot to be desired, but maybe we expect more from him than he is capable of giving.

    Devil's Advocate Says:

    @Icicycles: his work on 300 was so compelling not just because of his body. He transformed himself and really embodied that role as a warrior and a leader. I honestly believe there’s something personal going on with him that he needs to address, and most likely there is a self esteem issue. I have a feeling he isn’t studying acting because he views himself a celebrity first and feels that he probably only can be the good-looking ladies man. Or maybe due to a curious mixture of pride and insecurity in his ability? Whatever it is, if he really studied under someone to hone his natural acting talent, he can take his acting to another level worthy of potentially Oscar winning roles.

    Also, after this movie, he isn’t going to be a bankable star anymore. This is really sad, but I don’t see how it won’t hurt him. If he can hone his acting skills first, I think he should do a small, challenging Broadway production or two – and then, after he earns some cred for acting chops in that tough environment, get a role in a few small, well-written indy-type roles (like Silver Linings Playbook) that offer more substance over big paydays. He also needs a better agent and/or lawyer if he’s stuck doing all this PR at the expense of his image and health, as well as getting stuck in stinkers that end up reworked into something so different than originally contemplated.
    Also, the jet-setting playboy persona is really making it hard to take him seriously – particularly by good directors/producers, and by the movie viewing public. He talks about his mom, and old girfriends, and near-death experiences. What mage is he trying to portray? Instead of talking about going to Dubai, India, Latin America and being splattered in photos all over HW, maybe he should start distancing himself from the wanton image in favor for a more serious, gritty one and base himself in NYC. Literally ground himself somewhere stable for a while and build himself back up. I’m also loathe to say he shouldn’t date whomever he loves, but his roles are branded as shallow and misogynistic, so his penchant for dating models almost 20 years younger than him is really a bit of a image nightmare if he wants to be taken seriously (which he needs to be at this point to keep getting roles).

    I also stand by my prior recommendation that he do something of substance – get involved in some real causes. He has a well-publicized home in downtown NYC (an area which was devastated by the hurricane) – he should counteract the negative overexposure with some rehabilitative PR by lending his celebrity to raise money for NYC like the other local stars (and maybe be linked with De Niro instead of a lingerie model that is alienating many fans). The trick is doing it genuinely, not like driving a car on set for Ellen so it looked like he cared superficially. He should get into a cause, get his hands dirty and really get involved. The Sandy Relief concert yielded loads of free publicity that wasn’t about the stars’ dating lives, and the press is really kind to stars when publicizing for those events. I also saw a piece earlier today about a number of stars lending support for St. Jude and how kind and caring the stars were – what great, free PR for them!

    If he can do all of this with full commitment and dedication (and maybe find himself spiritually, which is probably what has led him to the precipice here), I think he’s got a great chance of coming back stronger than ever.
    But right about now, I’m tired of giving all of this advice into a vacuum. Frankly, I can’t understand why I’m even wasting my time putting all this out there for free (he clearly doesn’t need my charity). I must be crazy to care about this stranger’s life. That said, on behalf of all fading fans losing their interest faster by the day, I hope he can see this and figure out the details (that I’m not bothering to get into) on how to carry it all out on his own correctly, so we can once again be interested in seeing his work.
    I’m not planning to see PFK – at least, not until it comes out on cable.

Honestly, I probably wouldn’t “upbraid” him in person, but I would try to help. And, about the dropping his love thing – no, I don’t say he should give up love, if that’s what it is. But he’s got something going on so deeply within that he needs to connect with who he really is, what he really wants, etc., before he can truly commit himself to someone.

    Door # 2 Says:

    The real problem for Gerry is no one is going to trust him with a really great script now. Aside from the fact that he hasn’t starred in something that’s been critically acclaimed since 300 , and that was a beefcake role, Gerry’s proven that he can’t carry a film. He may contribute to the box office success of a film, but he’s not enough to make a film successful. I’m not a huge fan of Matt Damon, or George Clooney, or Brad Pitt, but any one of them would get picked over Gerry for a film because it would mean the movie would be seen. Yes all three have them have had flops too, but they’ve had far more success than they’ve had failures. Gerry has had far more failure than success, and credit for the successes he’s had has to be shared with his much more famous and successful co-stars.
    ~
    So Gerry has a choice to make. If he wants to be in really good movies, he’s gotta give up the leading man slot. He’s gotta take lesser but good roles in movies lead by a more successful actor. Something with Russell Crowe or Daniel Day-Lewis or Hugh Jackman. With the pressure off of him, he might even perform better and get the edge that he used to have back.
    ~
    If Gerry is hellbent on being a leading man, then he’s going to have to settle for the opportunities that other actors have passed on, which means more schlock and films like MGP that try really hard to be important movies, but fall short because there’s something missing in the writing and development.

    Everything about Gerry says that he wants to be a star and will take door #2. The partying. The girls. The fact that he is trying to convince people that he’s growing up and focusing on what’s really important, yet shagging a 24 year old girl not even a year after she was shagging DiCaprio.
    ~
    Gerry is a grown man with all of the experiences of walking this earth, among all different kinds of people in different countries and cultures, for more than four decades under his belt. And after all of that he’s seen and supposedly learned, his mental and emotional match is a 24 year old girl?

In addition the studios are making money in other ways such as pre-movie ads and other various outlets. Maybe gerrys last 3 movies and possible 4, have not well at the local theatre, but that doesn’t mean the overall sales are low.Some of the most popular rentals did poor at the box office. It wasn’t until they were released on DVD that more people had the ability to watch them and by word of mouth their success spread Also don’t forget HBO,Cinemax,MOvie Channel,etc, all have to pay studio rights to play these movies on their channel.

    Those romcoms didn’t make money because of Gerry Butler. They made money because of Katherine Heigl and Jennifer Aniston, who is one of the most famous, widely covered, and successful actresses in the world. Even to the extent P.S. I Love You did well, that was because of a certain multiple Best Actress Oscar winner, Hillary Swank. Gerry doesn’t get to take credit for the success of those films and anyone who claims otherwise is grasping for straws.
    .
    I don’t know why anyone is really expecting more from Gerry. He talks a good game, but has he ever done anything to suggest that he wants more out of this career than girls and money? You don’t choose to do the movies that he’s chosen to do if you want to be a serious actor. You’d never see Christian Bale or Leo DiCaprio doing the crap that Gerry does. At MOST some actors like Hugh Jackman did a few romcoms early in their career when they were trying to become household names, but once they got that foothold, they moved on to work with more merit. Romcoms were just stepping stones. If Gerry was really serious about acting as a craft, he would have stopped with the stupid romcoms too once he became a household name and started plugging away at really good movies. But he hasn’t. He’s Mr. Romcom. He’s referred to as a romcom actor in articles about him. The only reason an actor would choose to pursue that cheesiness is for the money and fame.
    `
    And all y’all saying he should dump Madalina Ghenea – why? So he can replace her with the next young cheap girl attracted to his fame and wallet? Gerry’s bad taste in scripts is only topped by his bad taste in women. He likes the cheap and easy ones. He doesn’t like mature and formidable women.
    - Brandi is close to his age but hardly mature. Just ask her drunk nipple shots on RHBH
    - Martina the Playboy Playmate.
    - Madelina who more people have seen with her clothes off than clothes on.
    - God only knows how many other young models (I’m sure people can list plenty other than Bianca, Nicole, Jasmine, etc. etc.)
    - Laurie the cleavage bearing TV host who also poses in her underwear for some unknown reason.
    `
    Are any of you really expecting him to show up somewhere with a 32 year old, well educated woman who does something impressive for a living that doesn’t involve taking her clothes off and who isn’t seeking fame? You may ask well just get used to Madalina and hope she sticks around because he’ll just replace her with a girl with the same young, easy, and opportunistic credentials if they break up.

    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.

    Catherine Zeta-Where? Says:

    Isn’t it strange that Catherine Zeta-Jones hasn’t touched the promotion of this film with a 10 foot pole? She may have had a supporting role, but in terms of film resumes and box office data, she’s definitely the biggest star in this film. It probably would have helped PFK in terms of both image and numbers if she stumped for it.
    Maybe this film didn’t turn out to be what she thought it would be when she signed up for it? Or maybe the misogyny in the storyline became obvious to her when she saw it after the editing?
    Promoting a film when it’s released is usually part of an actor’s contract, but CZA is very outspoken. The only reason that I can think that the producers and distributor wouldn’t roll out a big star like CZA to promote this film is because they didn’t want her talking about it. Like they knew she would say something negative.

    I expected an “only joking” but no he REALLY thinks he’s all that.

    if this movie is a flop it is a great example of Karma biting you in the ****, Butler.

    For a guy raised by a strong women you have lost all respect for them. Last time I buy your crappy movies in the bargain bin.

    Solution, get back to the UK, sell up and downscale, get new management, and concentrate on quality UK tv ensemble work. Build a reputation on ability, train, like he should have to start with if he hadn’t been so impatient for fame and fortune and sex.. The great thing about an aging male actor is that they can be successful in character roles for decades, if they have the ability and range. Great UK tv recently with Derek Jacobi in a hetero romantic role, and he’s not only ancient but gay. The rsc/rada background shines in so many.

    Gerard Butler and his new girlfriend, model Madalina Ghenea, were spotted stealing kisses in a blatant show of PDA at a Cinema Society bash for Butler’s latest film, “Playing for Keeps,” Wednesday at PH-D. However, the ebullient Scot managed to pull himself away and turn on the charm for female fans who wanted pictures. He was also overheard pumping up his latest work by asking them, “Did you like the movie? It’s such a sweet movie, right?” But the ploy seemed to work, our spy reports: One woman walked away saying, “That just made my year.”

    In a banquette nearby, Justin Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel were seen huddled together looking newlywed-like with hands on one another’s legs. But they headed out after an hour of VIP schmoozing. Also at the Chrysler-sponsored premiere were Uma Thurman, Judy Greer and Rachel Roy. [See Kyle Smith’s review of “Playing for Keeps” in Pulse.]

    @Emily: No, I’m saying it’s obvious his few remaining fans aren’t enough to make ticket sales soar for his films. It’s clear that most of his fans have deserted him. All you need to do is visit any of the fannysites to see that. It’s not the same as it was back in the heady days after POTO and 300. He does not have as many fans as he once had. I believe it’s because he can’t act and the quality of films he chooses isn’t good enough for intelligent moviegoers to watch.

    He really is full of himself, has a huge ego and I bet Alan has a terrible time with him on a daily basis. He seems like the kind of person no one can get through to, because “he knows it all”. His latest batch of interviews are terrible. He comes across as nervous, jumpy, almost paranoid, and with a bloated ego. He’s not the kinder, gentler Gerry everyone liked from 4 or 5 years ago.

    Something is going on with him. Is he still using or drinking? Or is he on medication? For the first time, I will admit I find him unlikeable these days. It’s shocking to me how much he’s changed and I don’t know why. This is why I am happy for him that he’s found love. Maybe she’s all he has right now because nothing else seems to be going well for him career-wise, unless making s.hit.ty films is his goal.

I don’t know what’s going on, but something isn’t right, and he appears to me like he was at the time of his appearance on Graham Norton in temperament, if you know what I mean.

    Just calling in – looking at ‘Rotten Tomatoes’ to a 0% (Yes zero!) approval rating so far, for GBs PFKs – this has to be an all time low.

    This review is by a female critic who actually considers herself to be a fan – and for her to give it a grade F! and suggest that you stay away is pretty poor.
    http://movies.about.com/od/playingforkeeps/fr/movie-review.htm

    I know that the die hard phannies will say that the proof is in the footfall at the movie theaters – but I will wait to see what is happening after the weekend. With the Hobbit and Les Mis’ due to thunder in next week, GBs luck is definitely running out.

    More than one of the critics has already said that this is Razzie worthy, and I think that the choice not to let critics see a preview performance has really backfired on GBs PR team – any goodwill they might have gotten from a launch event or preview sceening is well and truly gone, and any animosity from their usual comments about is acting and rep in RomComs is now fair game.

    What a disappointment he turned out to be.

    “With this movie, there’s nothing gritty to speak of, and George’s struggles seem more enviable than involving. Screenwriter Robbie Fox (So I Married an Axe Murderer) seems more interested in getting from plot point to plot point than in making the characters seem more authentic or at least interesting. By the time the whole thing’s through, it’s hard to care which good-looking person ends up with which other good-looking person.

    That may explain why Butler flings off his shirt right before the third act starts. His abdominal muscles make a stronger foundation than the script. “

And for whatever reason, he’s still keeping her in the shadows, despite these little blurbs that they are a couple. Even the twitpics are just like the ones in the beginning where all you see is a hand or some hair. It’s odd. I didn’t see any “couple” pics of them walking into the party, like the Timberlakes. There’s something weird about them.

    Viewfrom Says:

    Box office Mojo’s weekend forecast – this about says it all!

    “In anticipation of the upcoming blockbuster opening of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Gerard Butler romantic comedy Playing for Keeps is the only new nationwide release this weekend. Unfortunately, the movie doesn’t seem likely to score at the box office, and instead first place will come down to a battle between five holdovers. In fact, these titles will likely be so close that we won’t know the clear winner until actuals report on Monday.

    Not so long ago, Gerard Butler was a pretty safe bet at the box office. Putting aside the occasional stinker like Gamer, Butler had a solid post-300 run that included The Ugly Truth ($88.9 million), Law Abiding Citizen ($73.4 million) and The Bounty Hunter ($67.1 million). Unfortunately, October’s Chasing Mavericks was Butler’s first nationwide release in two-and-a-half years, and it’s currently winding down its run with an atrocious $5.8 million.

    Playing for Keeps will almost certainly do better than Chasing Mavericks, though probably not by much. Distributor FilmDistrict’s middling marketing effort has never provided a clear hook, and the generic rom-com set-ups that are presented almost seem as if they are from a Funny or Die parody trailer. This is probably because the marketing team didn’t have all that much to work with; as of Thursday afternoon, Playing for Keeps has the dreaded zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

    It’s worth noting that the movie was originally titled Playing the Field, which is a not-so-subtle reference to the fact that Butler’s character reportedly scores with soccer moms in the movie. By stripping that aspect of the story out—which honestly was probably a good idea with a PG-13 rom-com—the marketing team wasn’t left with much to go on aside from Butler’s charm. FilmDistrict is currently expecting between $6 and $8 million for the weekend, though it wouldn’t be surprising if the movie wound up lower.

    In an attempt to take advantage of the lull at the box office, Open Road Films is pushing End of Watch back in to nationwide release at 1,249 locations. The cop thriller has earned a decent $39.2 million so far, and should be able to push past $40 million thanks to this expansion.

    Forecast (Dec. 7-9)
    1. Skyfall – $10.8 million (-38%)
    2. Lincoln – $10.7 million (-20%)
    3. Life of Pi – $10.2 million (-16%)
    4. Rise of the Guardians – $10 million (-25%)
    5. Breaking Dawn Part 2 – $8.7 million (-50%)
    -. Playing for Keeps – $5.9 million

    Bar for Success
    Playing for Keeps needs at least $10 million to get a pass this weekend, and there’s almost no chance that happens.

    +
    As some of you have already pointed out – the way he’s coming across in interviews for this film is worrying. Who is this egotistical, arrogant, delusional jerk? Why the hell are his manager, agents and whoever’s doing his PR these days allowing this to go on? Why is Alan competing with Gerry for photo face time and ‘hugs’ with fans? WTF??? And why the hell is MG being ‘hidden’ but being allowed to feed personal info to Romanian gossip sites? Do any of them have the first clue as to how stupid they’re all looking?
    +
    I hate to think of what’s going to come out in the next couple of weeks with him co-hosting a Nobel event, and then doing further press in the UK and Europe for PFK. The UK media will not take kindly to him if he turns up here with the attitude he’s been showing to US and Canadian media.
    +
    Seriously, Gerry – What the hell is going on? Can he honestly say he’s happy about his career and personal life being trashed in the way they’ve been this year? I still call myself a fan, but I am seriously, seriously concerned and worried about the position he’s currently in career-wise. His personal life is none of my business, but it’s quite clear that it’s been affecting his career choices and lifestyle choices for a long time. Unlike some of you, I cannot honestly see what MG’s presence brings to the table other than a whole boatful of trouble.

    Stich Says:

    There’s a time in everyones life that if you have something good its a blessing you have to respect otherwise if you abuse it chances are it will be taken off you. in regards to Butler he was talented yes we know but i dont think he respected his good fortune he was lucky compared to a lot of ppl & what does he do party, drugs, trashy women, luxury holidays.

    I do believe he must’ve broken a lot of hearts along the way there have been countless tales of info that every girl he hooked up on location he would say they are the love of his life and just take off without any explanation.
    And sometimes when you play games with ppl and upset them you do get it back in life its a fact, the biggest lowdown for me was when he was involved with that marriage wrecking didnt feel for the lady but the husband who supposedly his friend and the kid who life must’ve been affected. I really lost respect for him

    Every interview he’l give a pathetic cocky answer and does think he is gods gift to women theres no modesty and humility. His fans stood by him through all his crappy movies but i do think slowly they have given up hope. And his latest hook up well do i need say anything some ppl mind find her pretty but if i was a guy shes not my cup of tea i prefer girls that have feminine features and have some modesty and shame but thats just me. Im glad shes with him they suit each other in adoring themselves they must have a lot of mirrors in the house Lol…

    If it was MG he will replace her with some other low life airhead who has no depth. All these are a massive turn off in a man for me and like everyone else i do find him very unlikeable as i dont think he has any integrity, morals or ethics and that can be seen on and off screen now just cant believe what an idiot he is and what an idiot i was for thinking he might have been different

    ppl are over tabloid gerry Says:

    Gerard Butler’s recent professional failures is an indictment of what people think of him personally in addition to just bad film choices.
    People who live in a way that gets them a lot of tabloid attention, clubbing at all the paparazzi targe hotspots and modelizing and showing up for the cameras at every opening of an envelope, eventually sour in the eyes of the public. Tabloid personalities are “spectacles” and once the initial “ooo ah” of the spectacle has passed, it turns into “eeeew” real fast.

    The problem with Madalina Ghenea is that she’s “of type” for Gerry’s tabloid image. What the public has seen of his type (Brandi, Martina Rajic) is dodgy at best. Maybe if Gerry had been dating age-appropriate women of substance all of this time, women that had more to offer than a hot body, him starting to sleep with Madalina when she was only 23, and her being someone who’s made money only by taking off her clothes in porn-like lingerie photos and doing little else professionally (unlike the accomplished actresses who have done the occasional partial nude editorial shots), wouldn’t matter to people.

    But Gerry has always chased girls that young and that tawdry. Martina Rajic was even younger when he was sleeping with her in Serbia and works in actual porn. He’s been a serial modelizer and they’re all way young [without serious contracts, models start getting geriatric at 25]. The fact that he has that pattern of pursuing super young, dodgy girls makes Gerry look like he’s at THEIR level intellectually and emotionally, not that they’re at his level.

    If Gerry wants the world to believe that he’s grown up, then he has to actually grow up. If he wants to date younger women, fine, but younger doesn’t mean YOUNG with only a handful of years as a legal adult when he’s 43. In addition to the “eew” factor, it makes him look really hollow, like all he cares about is a tight behind and doesn’t have the character to be attracted to someone with qualities beyond that, or more likely, to be of interest to someone with qualities that don’t include being impressed by and sticking with him because he is (or was) a rich movie star.

    He also needs to fire whatever idiot let him take these roles in PFK and The Ugly Truth that mirror his tabloid image, cementing the idea that people have of him as a immature player. If it wasn’t obvious to them that roles like that are a bad idea for him before, the fact that people have stopped paying to see him do on film what they already see him do on TMZ, Radar, JJ, and countless other websites should.

    Gerry needs to either change – REALLY change, not just say he’s going to change and then keep under 25 arm candy in his bed – or he needs to retire. The public has his number and the fact that they’re not showing up to see him anymore should tell him they’re over it.

  345. 345
    DocP Says:

    Well I guess it’s Life of Pi this weekend rather than PFK. Somehow I can’t help but feel sorry for Gerry but he has no one to blame but himself. The sad thing is that I fear Gerry doesn’t understand what it takes to be humble.

He’s become a caricature, and his “girlfriend”, “girl” being the operative word, is most definitely one. Sadly, she is a reflection of who this man really is, not who the phannies wanted or believed him to be.

    “There was a time when Gerard Butler was a solid actor, whose name hadn’t yet become synonymous with incoming comedy crapola. Those days are long gone, and now you can barely spit without hitting some terrible romantic comedy he’s latched himself on to. It’s like everybody who used to take these films grew up and moved on, with Butler stepping in to pick up all of the slack. Playing for Keeps is not a film that should be out right now, in the thick of Oscar season. It should have been relegated to the cinematic dregs of January or February where its stench is masked by the equally subpar.”

    @Rumpelstiltskin:
    WORD on this and ppl are over tabloid gerry.
    .
    GerBear is trying to change his image through interviews again, but he’s done that for years. He’s talked a good game about what he admires about women and rebuffed jokes by people like Sophia Vergera about how he only likes young girls, but people see who he actually dates and hooks up with, and know that he’s full of sh.t on all counts. Everyone knows that what Gerard Butler says about himself in interviews and what he actually believes and does are very different things, and I agree that they’re over it. No one believes what he’s been shoveling in these latest interviews about growing up and focusing on what’s important, especially when he’s toting around and sleeping with this – http://www.thehypescene.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Madalina-Ghenea-18.jpg
    .
    He’s not going to change tho. GerBear has gotten away with saying one thing and doing another for so long, and he’s surrounded by “yes” people. I’m sure GerBear is getting slaps on the back from guys about Madalina Ghenea and that makes him feel young and powerful and important. That’s all he cares about so he’s not going to change even if it means turning off female fanbase which is his only fanbase really. I think GerBear’s vanity and arrogance will trump any other concerns that he has every day of the week.

  354. 354
    Another Opinion Says:

    I also think that he is on something because his current behavior reminds me of the way he was acting during the MGP promotion and Soccer Aid in May. As usual he is in denial and is surrounded by sycophants and handlers. The surfing accident, the stay in rehab, the movie flops, and the recent PR nightmare haven’t had any impact on him. DENIAL is as usual the name of the game. Looking at Butler’s evolution (or maybe lack of evolution) on personal level over the last years makes me feel pessimistic about the capacity of human beings to change.

  355. 355
    Whatev Says:

    Gerry Butler isn’t going to change. The kind of change that he’s been talking about in his latest interviews requires strength and Gerry is a very weak man. The proof is in the film and women he’s chosen to do. Gerard Butler is a man governed by the superficial and his impulses. Men like that don’t change.

    Thank you for posting all those reviews.

    Oh and the use of the word “wanker” by kids in this film.  It’s not good. Not good at all. In actual fact it’s disgusting. In the UK the word is not only very insulting. It is also very sexual. It can be used as a form of verbal abuse similiar to  ”ar*ehole”, or “sh*thead”.
    But it also means… wait for it… a man who masturbates himself.  You also have the expression “wank me off”, which means a man who asks a woman or another man to give him a “hand job”. Jeez Butler is such an idiot That is a prime example why he should ever, ever produce films. Sloppy. Very very sloppy.

    “What’s happened to Gerard Butler?

    At one time, he was Hollywood’s most beloved bellower thanks to his ability to shout repeatedly about glory in “300.” He was starring in movies with Jennifer Aniston that weren’t very good, but generated a bit of media buzz because, you know, Aniston. And he was developing a strong set of female admirers, including quite a few who read this blog.

    But this year, his movie choices have been abysmal. (“Spartans! Prepare for garbage!”)”

    @thecareersovermate:

    To be realistic, he was 13 thirty years ago, though I agree he lacks empathy and that’s why he keeps choosing the roles he does, he only can relate to characters he portrays, not the other ones that bounce off of him. He seems to choose to portray himself. He should act and portray completely different people. His attitude reminds me of Charleston Heston, minus the enormous talent of Heston..

    @food 4 thought: Yes, many of the slams seem very personal, don’t they? Perhaps his former fans aren’t the only ones who’ve had a change of heart about him.

I’ve read several reviews that have even questioned whether he should have received credit for 300, and are blasting his whole career.

    GGG Says:

    When I watched his latest interviews, it really seemed to me, that GB lost all respect for woman. Shame on him! He’s been raised by a strong lady, so wtf happened to him??? His mother has to have nightmares about a possible wedding of her son and the “Oh-I-want-to-keep-my-relationship-private-but-on-every-picture-of-me-and-gerry-i-look-directly-into-the-camera-what-a-coincidence” girl.
    +
    On the other hand I always think that it is no wonder that his ego doesn’t fit into a room anymore. When I hear all this girls screaming at the top of their voices just because he is entering the room at a late night show… OMG! Why do they do this??? That’s madness!!! … I mean, I’m not really surprised that this has an effect on GB and his ego. Thousands of woman screamed, collapsed and even started to cry, when they saw him for years. So I’m sorry to say this, but it is not surprising for me, that he now thinks that woman are easy to have and that he is the greatest. Ladies, in my opinion his behavior is digusting and embarrassing, but it’s “our” fault (or at least the one of all the screaming and nearly collapsing girls) that he has changed so much and is now what he is.

    Plastic Fantastic Says:

    It’s like I said, fans/critics/blogs are pointing out his flaws in CHOICES, not his capability to act/improve. He can’t blame that or anything on anyone but himself in the long run. Not Mummy Maggie. Not Alan. Not his phew phantasizing phannies. Not even the women, no, GIRLS that HE BRINGS into his life.
    ——-
    He’s still 22 in maturity, and it’s clouding up his PROFESSIONAL life, big time (bump that he SAYS he’s matured).
    He’s dating that age (20-something, manufactured, subservient thrid-tier panty models, get in line).
    He speaking at that age (near death experience reduced to fodder, he even cussed on the red carpet with AJ on Extra while promoting this romcom/family flick).
    He makes choices as if that age (in women, film choices, stringy bracelets, etc).
    He RUNS AWAY as if that age (keep it moving and noisy with your bobble-headed yes men/women and your “bros” in tight formation, and life’s harder lessons will be voices passing in the wind, not shouting in your face as they need to be sometimes, then call it “adventure”)
    Again, the 43 year old is NOT wearing the life of a 22 well anymore, so MAYBE it’s time to put away childish things. JMO.
    ——
    I hope for a change in a positive/progressive direction for him (I want better for myself and ANYONE of you who WANTS IT AND WORKS FOR IT THEMSELVES, at ANY age/stage in their life). But if the last couple of years doesn’t at least *look* like critical mass in the guise of a mid-life crisis to him, then he’s blind, and purposely so. Again, that’s his CHOICE.

    TeaCakes Says:

    @Oh yeah: No, BH didn’t cause this much panic when it came out because he was given a pass for “Fingergate”. It also came out before anyone knew of his addictions and his lust for the married chick and helping to break up her marriage. No one knew for sure who he liked or dated because he had rarely been seen in public with anyone. That led to speculation that he was gay which I don’t believe. Many people still went to see the film probably because of Aniston, too.

    Gerry has had years where his personal and private life was kept under wraps but he’s been exposed heavily in the past year and a half. You could see him chasing young college girls early on. Does anyone remember he went to some university (Michigan???) so he could yell “this is Sparta” and hang with the young chicks? He also went to Savannah GA to some college chasing other young women. Guys his age chasing 20 year old tail are nothing more than dirty old men. I think many had hints of this over the years but he was always given a pass because he said “I’m a bad boy with a good heart” or some such.

    I think he functions purely on what Little Gerry tells him and nothing more. For someone who supposedly graduated law school at the top of his class, he’s not very bright. The latest news about him with his horrible interviews and his misogynistic statements makes me cringe. I can’t believe I actually liked this clod once. I really don’t see how he has many fans these days. I don’t go to the fansites so don’t know.

I don’t think I will pay to see this last movie.

    @Wonderlust Says:

    I can only guess that most posters here were once fans and are disappointed in him now for one reason or another. Because of the internet and the ability to follow ones favorite actors so closely, people can obtain information a lot quicker and more prolific than years past. That’s the explanation I can best come up with for the general negativity here. Granted the recent movie coming out that is quickly dying on the vine as we speak doesn’t help much. I can’t help, but wonder if part of the negativity comes from preconditioned opinions. They say, that if a lie is told long enough soon everyone will believe it as truth whether there is any basis for fact involved at all. Granted Butler has a tendency of hanging himself out to dry without much effort these days. But, I sense that either, he didn’t turn out to live up to your idea of who he was or you just generally love to take the piz out of the guy for any inane reasons known only to you. Have the general public become so hateful and caustic to their fellow human beings or is this the new entertainment for some people? Because I see this everywhere on the internet. Like a lot of you I became a fan after POTO. My opinion of him has gone down in recent years because of his script choses. His personal life is of no interest to me, but I can see where it could influence the over all view of the guy. BUT, I don’t hate him like it a lot of the posters here seem to. Some are disappointed, some concerned. I can understand that. But, out and out hatred coming from many of you, I don’t get. It’s not like he’s your EX or someone who’s done you wrong. Why such vitriol for both him and each other? Strangers all. Has easy access to the internet and gossip sites like this one made us all so numb and cold inside? Not everyone is so negative, but almost 80% is. It would be the same thing if it was all sickeningly sweet overly positive opinions of him. And I get it that it’s a gossip site and free speech abounds here. This is JMO of course, unless someone has a better explanation for it all. I’ve read here for about a year now and it’s become so depressing that I will no longer read here for news info. I wish you all well and peace for a new year.

    Gerard Butler, the Misogynist Says:

    Someone summed Gerry’s issues up really well earlier in the thread:
    -
    “Gerry is a grown man with all of the experiences of walking this earth, among all different kinds of people in different countries and cultures, for more than four decades under his belt. And after all of that he’s seen and supposedly learned, his mental and emotional match is a 24 year old girl?”
    -
    Gerard Butler’s lack of maturity and respect for women that attracts him to young girls for mutually superficial relationships instead of being attracted to really impressive and special women is the same lack of maturity and respect for women that kept him from understanding how insulting Playing for Keeps is to women.
    .
    A movie where two gorgeous women in their 40s are depicted as being desperate and sex-starved, pursuing a 40-something man who rejects them while he pursues his barely 30 year old ex-wife? While in reality, Gerard Butler doesn’t date women around his own age either, and continually goes back to the young models, currently dating a girl who he started sleeping with when she was just 23?
    .
    The fact that he couldn’t foresee how bad that would make him look just shows what little regard he has for women and how shallow he really is. Gerard Butler IS the douchebags in the romantic comedies he plays, and no matter what he says in interviews to try to distance himself from that behavior, his actions speak louder than those words.

    I don’t know about the other people, but in my case I honestly don’t care about his personal life. As I said before I have been following him from 9 years, but I had never read things in gossip sites like this until this year.
    -
    Why I am disappointed? 1) The movies he had chosen to make, and 2) what he revels of himself in interviews. The second point is not related with his personal life, but his statements as a public person (promoting his movies by doing interviews is considered part of his job). So why should we support the life style of this kind of people if we don’t agree with what they say? I think we could tolerate the second up to some point if at least he were doing good movies … but bad movies and bad attitude? I am sorry, but I would be really hypocrite in supporting him with his misogynistic attitude when I don’t allow that behavior in real life from anybody.

    Oh for *beep* sake, Why do these Gerremlins keep creaming themselves into a defensive tizwoz over some weegie ******* walking around NYC with a girls handbag; Calls himself Hot Rod but my 76 year old arthritic granny could kick fûck of him and make him cry like a six year old girl; boring ******* of an actor and he speaks like a cûnt; he acts like he’s some precious gift to the entertainment world – doesn’t realize he’s a cûm-dumpster for second rate directors and shît scripts; always boasts about doing stunts, and then whines about how death defying they are on set – I always had to pretend I was listening to him blather on and on and fûcking on endlessly about how big he thinks his balls are. Hopefully one day the stunt will involve him getting hit by a fûcking juggernaut loaded with TNT and petrol and the whining will finally stop.

    Celebrities sometimes drive me NUTS! Especially ones who moan & groan about “privacy”. Why is Butler allowing strangers(I think that actress who went to the casting for example, maybe others also)to take photos inside his loft? I mean, doesn’t that strike anyone else as strange?? This is HIS private space that is being used for a “casting/reading” and people, possibly strangers are just taking pics and posting to their twitter accounts?!…maybe he approved of it but then he ought to STFU about his privacy because you can’t get much more “private” than one’s home(This is different to when the magazine did the feature on his place)… As a celeb I would have been confiscating strangers digital devices when they entered even if I knew about & approved of the reading/meeting. I have come to believe that many peeps who CLAIM to hate having their privacy being invaded only do that because they keep secrets & tell lies but in truth they really love the attention, otherwise why do this sort of thing?

    http://www.theatlantic.com/sexes/archive/2012/12/dont-let-gerard-butler-fool-you-fatherhood-isnt-about-being-sexy/265999/

    “Feminism has given women a way to deconstruct idealized images on screen, to understand the media’s manipulation of bodies, desire, and jealousy as both political and aggressive. Men, though, haven’t developed the same analytical resources.” “men on screen are rarely seen as bad role models, or good role models. They’re just more or less attractive fantasies.”

    “George is an insultingly low standard. Which is all the more reason that husbands, fathers, women, and everyone else should resent being told—in this film and in general—that we should root for this loser. Reformation is great, but I get really tired of hearing that responsibility and faithfulness only really count if you screwed up and screwed around first. Infidelity is not a necessary prelude to masculine maturity, and sports, despite hundreds of films and thousands of beer commercials, just has nothing to do with being a man.”

    “If fidelity and responsibility were what mattered, Matt would get the happy ending. But he hardly ever does.” “the film gives him no abs to speak of, no soccer skills, and the personality of a stump. Stacie tells George at one point that Matt makes her laugh, but we never see him do so—nor do we ever see Matt interacting in any but the most perfunctory way with Lewis. Matt’s not world-famous. He keeps his **** in his pants. He involves himself in the day-to-day tasks of raising a child. Ergo, he’s boring and no one could possibly care about him. Let’s go watch George do something sexily irresponsible again!”

    The movie is pretty good. I saw it last night. The theater was about half full, so not too bad. Lots of teens which I thought was kind of weird. You could tell everyone was enjoying the movie. I went with a group of 5 girls making this our girls night out dinner and a movie. I’m the only Gerry fan so they obliged me. They all liked it. Gerry is good in it and I thought to myself it’s a typical romcom. It was entertaining which is all it wanted to be. No one for a minute thought this would ever be Oscar worthy. Bottom line it was a relaxing fun atmosphere of a movie with a few teary moments. The characters were fun and the story was believable. I give it 3/5 stars. There is no way it deserves the drubbing the critics are giving it.

    Side note: My neighbors and my sister and her husband went to see Lincoln and said it was boring and was not the movie they expected from the trailers. Sure DDL was amazing, but after awhile ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

    I don’t understand all the horrid posting here. No one really knows what goes on in his private life and assumed that he is some horrid person. I don’t recognize any of the posters anymore either. Very sad and haven’t quite figured it out, although no spending to much time trying to. To hateful to be healthy reading all the toxic comments and passing over the crap and sarcasm.

    Though I support your right to see what you want, I don’t think I’m gonna waste my money and time on this one. What parent do you know would teach his kid to cuss in public at this little boys age? None that I know of. Basically wanker is a cuss word in British language at the very least its meaning is not something I would want my children to think of. No doubt Gerry thought this was “cute” behavior but its inappropriate at any age. I thank god that Gerry doesn’t have kids, the world doesn’t need any more screwed up a anoxious children who lack respect for others.
    I agree with you about Lincoln, it does look like a snoozer. I deeply appreciate everything Lincoln did for this country but I’ve already read the history books a hundred times, I’ve even seen his childhood home in Illinois, I’ve been to Gettysburg. I don’t need Hollywood putting its glorified spin on it.

    Sorry but I gotta say it.  GB is sticking two fingers up at the phannies like angelsrock  and Lord love a Duck with this film, and they are taking it right up their proverbials, because they think he’s pretty.  It is really kind of “stepford wifey”  how they gently cluck about his  sleazy behaviour, then start praising him for just smiling, being hunky and having a Scottish accent.

Like I said to Angel I will always support a persons right and freedom to see what they want. However there are just to many bad reviews on this one. Either way ‘ll see it when it comes out on DVD but I reserve my movie money for the really good ones. I can’t wait for the Hobbit and Les Miserables.

    I gotta say i agree with you there was a time where i would give him the benefit of the doubt but hes just got from bad to worse and has appeal and charm is so fake now that even though i try not dislike him i cant help myself. I just watched a recent interview where a female presenter asks about casting all the actresses and how beautiful they are etc and did u choose them etc and he said ‘well you’d rather have a beautiful woman throw themselves at you than an ugly ones’

    Im sorry but what gives him the right to call anyone ugly and his fans may consisist of youn, old, fat, skinny average all kinds of ppl. So shows how shallow he is that he will dismiss someone not based on their character and personality but the way they look. Everyone is gods creation and no one has the right to call anyone ugly if they dont look a specific type

    I think you don’t recognize the posters here because this is supposed to be a JB and JT thread. People who come here to read about JB/JT very soon find out that people are actually talking about GB, and decide to give their opinions. If you check post #6 in the first page you can see it has 106 thumbs up, that number of thumbs is unusual in any of the recent GB threads!

    Ever heard the old adage, “You reap what you sow?” Butler has flittered away opportunities that very few aspiring actors ever have. He’s taken short cuts most of his life. A little charm here, a little wink there…I think we’re all watching his career appear to suddenly decline. In truth it has been happening slowly and most certainly…just like bankruptcy. I just don’t think he’s as smart and calculating as he thinks he is…classic narcissist. It will be everyone else’s fault for his own self-inflicted demise.

    I think GB makes movies based on what he likes and suits him rather than what the masses what like PFK is just so far fetched and cringe worthy what makes him think every womans dream is to hook up with him pleaseeee some ppl are so delusional like him that think aslong as im good-looking il get away with anything!! And thats where his delusional fans come in that sugar coat every bad his does.

    Douche/s and misogynistic men are always born when silly women with no insight turn a blind eye to everything they do just because he’s cute or handsome and will overlook their faults making them even more bad. PFK is just that and thats why its getting bad reviews does he seriously think by kicking a football it makes him a good father, he says he loves his wife but you womanize and when things are not good in your life your turn to them…I just think if george dryer was still successful and had money would he still come to make amends i think not…In real life he talks about as if theyre a little adventure and he can play soccor and travelling etc having kids is about sacrafice and hard work like being there and upbringing them in a safe postive enviroment he’s so off the mark its unbelievable

That’s why I find women like angelsrock and Lord love a Duck so disheartening and depressing.  They are obviously lovely, kind hearted women but they want so badly to see the positive in GB, that it becomes negative.  It’s like watching a loving but slightly daft mum stoically defend her decison to spoil her child rotten, because she doesn’t want to see her beautiful baby unhappy.  Kind of tragic.

    Terrible Twos Says:

    Thanks for the people who responded to my post. There were a bunch so I will just address everyone. I don’t know where to find objective and unbiased reviews anymore. :-( I’ve been burned following the hype to the theater and coming out thinking, ‘What in the world? How could anyone call that great?’ And then movies that slip past my consciousness, I end up renting on DVD for the hell of it and thinking, ‘OMG, how come more people didn’t see/talk about this when it came out? This is awesome.’
    TBH, I was surprised PFK got summarily dismissed across the board because it has quite a group of decent actors in it. Thanks for saying it was at least enjoyable. I’ve heard the same about Lincoln, that DDL is great but people were bored watching it. The only person I know that loved it is a history buff. Go figure. Now, I wait a few weeks before a film is released to decide if I want to have a go in the theater or wait for it to come out on a rental. I take to searching twitter or talking to my friends because I feel that reviews are largely unreliable these days. It’s getting BAD. You would think people wouldn’t want to risk their professional reputation and give honest and fair critiques? Oh well, I give up trying to fight it. I just hope when I enter a theater nowadays I’ve chosen something that I can at the very least enjoy and be entertained. If it is mind-blowing or thought provoking or Oscar worthy or distinguished in originality then that is a bonus for sure. I don’t expect that from PFK, obviously, but I’m not sure it’s the load of crap people are making it out to be.

    Gerard Butler's Fans Says:

    They’re a weird lot. They fret desperately if it looks like Gerard Butler has a cold, wishing that he’d slow down and take care of himself.
    .
    But he makes horrible movies that jeopardize his career, and does things in his personal life that contribute to him looking like nothing more than a lascivious cliche, and they defend him.
    .
    They claim that his crap films are actually good, and rationalize away their failures at the box office as someone else’s fault instead of his. Because it HAS to be someone else’s fault, not their precious Gerry’s.
    .
    They swallow ever piece of carefully crafted PR bull that he says about women in his interviews and how he cares about people, and ignores everything that he actually does that proves that his only interest in women is superficial, and his care for people is strategically shown through self-serving photo ops and press reports.
    .
    Notice that the post on the first page of this thread has over 100 likes on it. I think most people who read these stories on JJ don’t sift through the pages and pages of comments but may scan the first several. I think that tells you what most people perceive of Gerard Butler and it’s amazing that his so-called fans are so willing to enable his conduct that has caused people to reach those conclusions.
    .
    If they really cared about him, really admired him, they would stop praising everything that he does that’s bad for him and be honest. Maybe if the people around Gerard Butler that keep telling him that he’s so wonderful shut up, Gerard Butler would realize that he’s not doing anything particularly wonderful and actually try to live up to the fiction about himself that he spins in his interviews.

    There is nothing wrong with admitting that I think he’s easy on the eyes and if I want to pay 10 bucks to see his cutie pie face then there is no harm in that is there?
    I also think he is a decent actor, and agree that he’s not living up to his potential but I don’t have to conduct a public flogging over it.
    Eh, I’m not that invested. He’s a man, he acts like a lot of men do. He’s not a minister. Now excuse me while I go see a movie. I don’t know which one yet but I’m hoping it’s something decent. :)

    I find him disappointing. He does look so different but he’s still quite handsome. It’s that he used to come across so sweet and now he’s soooo self centered and egotistical. He just praises himsefl up the wazoo and and I think that is his latent insecurity. He could be so much better. It’s like he forgot to be an actor in exchange for being a jet setter, like a rock star. Instead of jetting around to get (cheap female) attention, he should seriously research a role, portray someone with a proper accent (Ewan McGregor can do it and he dropped out of school at 15, he sjut gives a s/h/i/t. He craft matters, his portrayals MATTER to him, not just in interviews, but int he quality he shows, and his accent was just as strong. It’s what an actor does.)

    But he doesn’t, he wants to go to parties and night clubs and premieres and have his picture taken. he doesn’t want to sacrifice like even Matthew McConaughey is, or Christian Bale. He isn’t as good as Tom Cruise and not as tenacious as Leo. So he has to work hard and let’s face it potraying pretty boys and action heroes is not a challenge, esp for him.

    Granted that’s one way of looking at it.  Another way is this family oriented movie is sending out a message to impressionable minds that it’s ok for a man to abandon his child for years, to go and enjoy all the trappings of money and fame. Once its all gone, then it’s perfectly ok for him to come back into his child’s and young ex’s life, just say sorry about a dozen or so times, as he goes about sleeping with a bevy of hot women, who are portrayed as desperate, or conniving, or crazy, who he doesn’t even like because they’re too old. Even though the guy is older than most of them.  He can ignore the fact that the young ex now has a kind, loving, dependable, supportive, faithful, fiancé who she intends to marry in a matter of weeks. In fact not only can he ignore his young ex’s fiance. It’s perfectly acceptable for him to  persuade her to drop the decent guy and take him back. According to this family oriented movie this sleaze bag can do all that, as long as the guy is good looking and shows a cursory bit of charm, just like Gerard Butler. Great message to all those impressionable  young boys and girls.

    Ducky, I haven’t seen the movie yet. Glad you and Angel liked it, been busy with other things for up and coming holiday.
    I feel bad for him that his last four movies have really failed him. I think that is why he started his own production company so he would have some work because it doesn’t look like anything is coming his way otherwise.
    Look at his face now when he is approached by interviewers, it is guarded and I wonder if he thinks they are going to bring up the trend of all his recent movies doing so badly. It seems like HW is trying to drive him out. The next three months are empty unless he is working on something we haven’t heard of yet. He does not have anything that is actually ready to start.
    He is really getting reamed by critics and you know since his fan base has dwindled there is not enough of them left to make his movies a hit.
    I thought PFK would do much better than CM but it looks like it will tie with it.
    They are already starting comparisons with OHF with the other white house movie.
    He could have been offered a part in LesMis because he sang in POTO, wonder if he ever had that opportunity to test for it.
    Ducky unless some big names offer him something soon I don’t know what his next move will be.
    There is no way I want to see movie 43 and why he did that is beyond me. Poor choices or no choices what is it.
    I know he can do a good preformance I just hope he can put this stuff behind him and start anew on projects that will enhance his career not take away from it. He really has his work cut out for him to turn the tables on what people think of him as a person and an actor. I for one don’t believe he is a bad person he just doesn’t always use the brains God gave him.

    After the thing with the married woman everything became so strange … he looked terrible in all those paps shots and videos, also when his parents were in town. Then suddenly he was happy again having fun in Coachella (bipolar guy?) … and then mg materialized into his life. I just wonder if the Coachella thing was like a kind of “bachelor party” for him, knowing that he “had” to find somebody to change his image.
    -
    I am not saying that the mg thing is not real, just that he may have decided from the beginning that this time he should make it work, just because he needed to change his image. If mg wouldn’t have been there perhaps it would have been somebody else.
    -
    I know he is not the best actor in the world, and that he makes bad choices … but I think that in HW there are much worst actors than him who still get job offers. Didn’t he insinuate once that he turned down the offer to play Watson in Sherlock Holmes? If that is true people still were offering jobs to him … so what happened? Why is he not having such an offers now?

    This could be the making of him. He could give up acting and producing altogether, after all he’s too lazy to do them properly. The Romanian could turn out to behalf decent and stick by him. They could get married and have some kids, he must have several millions stashed away somewhere they could live off very comfortably for the rest of their lives.  And we’ll never hear of Gerard Butler again. Thank the Lord. Life is funny like that sometimes, he could lose his career and find maturity, love and true happiness, and spare the world his awful films.

    Stich Says:

    I do feel sorry for him because it seems that his future doesn’t look that bright all the movies he’s signed are small budget lame script productions which hardly appeal to mainstream. His big downfall was his image and do that i think people in HW knew he wasn’t a serious guy but he became a laughing joke. There was rumours that he messed with some producers wife and he burned bridges with a lot of ppl, even in ischia he messed with a popular mans wife. I think what filmakers realised that he couldnt keep his d!ck in his pants whereas other male actors were a bit reliable

    What he is doing with MG now he shouldve done earlier on with a woman im sure he mustve had better women than her but never gave them the respect. I think he’s making a lot of effort with her because he knows his career is fading and soon he many women wont even acknowldge him so he’s making it a go with her, like many here suggest that he has women throwing themselves at him i mean what kind of women did he pull??? Brandi, Martina, Beatrice all Z-list
    nobodies ever here a classy well admired woman drooling for him i think not.

    He’s a typical example of no matter how much money you have you cant buy class thats a proven. He didnt play his cards right and i really dread to think when he isnt offered big paychecks how the hell will he fund his addictive lifestyle!! I dont think he is as rich as some may think and there was tweets about him spending on his gf clothes which was what a normal couple would spend on someone nowadays you often hear HW men buying the gf’s cars or expensive watches, or he may be just tight

    … something else I don’t understand is the attitude of his female co-starts of PFK.

That PFK premier was an example.
    That comment that Uma Thurman made at the premier of PFK was also something to think about! Why did she sign to play in that movie if he wasn’t happy with her role from the beginning?

    Its a good option but hes the type of man that thrives off attention and gets a high when hes recognised, if he had any brains he wouldve settled a lot earlier and spared everyone the headlines off getting involved with married women and bed hopping i personally think hes rubbed a lot of ppl off the wrong way that i find it hard to believe he will have a happy ever after and walk away in the sunset like a disney movie especially with his choice in women

    I noticed that too and every premier he is all huggy and jokey with his female co-stars and happily posing pictures, in interviews he said really nice things about JB but she never did and you could tell she was distancing herself from him at the event, theres no smoke without fire sometimes and his reps never denied the recent stuff written about her. maybe that article was from his PR side so he could address his apology to her that he wished he respected her

    He looks really wrinkly and rough in photos now, and the bad hair dye jobs don’t help, ewww. He looks like a creepy “try too hard to look young” creepy middle-aged school teacher.  One day and it will be very, very soon the Romanian will wake up and find a old, white haired, pudgy, smelly, man laying next her in bed. So she better love him, or love his money more, or skedaddle now. I think under all that dye his hair must be almost completely grey now.

Translated the article and it said she tried to hide when she say the paps for what? It;s out now. Of course he could have very well done this with other women we just don’t know.She’s a girl trying to rise so I just don’t see her banging up her body for kids or him right now. they are in the honeymoon phase of dating, only time will tell if she’ll stick around. does anyone remember the interview she gave where she said she was traveling back and forth to see AB? So I guess this is the norm for her.

    Well last night was date night and my boyfriend being the considerate guy he is, let me pick the movie. I heard him breath a sigh of refief when I said “Life of Pi”. I asked him why and he told me that he thought for sure that I would pick that new Gerard Butler movie. He didn’t want to see it. He’s a good sport, he did a look out watch while I peaked into the showing of PFK to see how many people were in the theater. It was a Saturday night and the this theatre is always busy on the weekend. It had a fair showing, aprox 2/3 the theatre was taken up. However Life of Pi was totally full. We arrived ealy so we got the standard middle of the theater seats but I watched as people had to adjust so others could fit in and sit together. It was a great movie, wonderful cinematography and an inspiring story line. I didn’t even realise it was 2 hrs long until we left the theater and saw how late it was. Glad i made the choice I did. Hope al of you had a great weekend

If she wants an old dude with a ton of money, there are plenty out there if she moves quickly, although her clock is ticking away also. Old dudes with money tend to like them as young as possible, and they have their pick.

He’s got money why not just live off it, if not with the Romanian, another chick. He’s pisssed off too many of the right people in HW. He should just go away now. He can get attention by telling stories about his old HW lifestyle to anyone who will listen in one of those little pubs in Comrie.

    You know I’ve thought the same ting when he is 65 she will be 47 and when he’s 70 she will be 52. The fact is he won’t age well because he hasn’t treated his body well. Of course who knows at 50 she will be having her own health issues due to all the enhancements she’s had done. Either way I don’t think she’s gonna want to take care of a 70 year old whn she is at her prime sexual peak. She’ll probably end up being a cougar and wanting a younger man. Gerry’s fate is pretty dismal from my estimation.

    Playing for Keeps, also starring Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Dennis Quaid, came in No. 6 domestically despite a B+ CinemaScore.

    The soccer-themed romantic comedy marks another box-office flop for Butler after recent surfing drama Chasing Mavericks.

    FilmDistrict acquired U.S. distribution rights to Playing for Keeps in 2011. Directed by Gabriele Muccino (The Pursuit of Happyness), the story follows the travails of a washed-up soccer star who hopes to redeem himself by coaching his son’s soccer team but falls prey to desirable single moms.

    Butler, whose next film is the White House action pic Olympus Has Fallen, has a mixed record at the box office since 300 made him a Hollywood star, grossing $456.1 million worldwide in spring 2007. His highest-grossing film since is The Ugly Truth ($205.2 million). Last year, Coriolanus and Machine Gun Preacher both fell flat at the domestic box office.

    The lone wide release this weekend is FilmDistrict’s “Playing For Keeps,” a soccer dramedy that seemingly no one wanted to see. In its first three days, this film will surpass the entire domestic gross of Gerard Butler’s last starring role, “Chasing Mavericks.” Of course, approximately three people saw that film (and two were related to Butler) so that doesn’t mean much. This is a dismal showing for Butler, a would-be leading man who has essayed three straight tanks going back to last fall’s disastrous “Machine Gun Preacher.” The next test of Butler’s stardom, or what’s left of it, is next April’s “Olympus Has Fallen,” but it already has the stink of being a cheapie knock-off of Channing Tatum’s much starrier “White House Down.” Butler will need a serious career re-think.

    Box office was worse than I thought.

    Reviews were exactly what I expected. Remember when this project was announced I said it was crap and was crucified for my opinion.
    .
    Angelsrock you also said Bounty Hunter was enjoyable and it was downright painful to watch. Thanks for saving me money with PFK.
    .
    Thank God the critics have placed the blame for this flop at Butler’s feet. I would hate for the actresses who had the misfortune of playing such instruments of disposal to men to have any of the fault for the movie’s failure placed on them. That would have been victimization times two IMO.
    .
    Bet Butler is thanking the scheduling Gods for scooting him out of the country to Oslo so he didn’t have to flee the States with his tail between his legs.
    .
    Macaroni, lmao. I hope he is stupid enough to marry her and with a really loophole-filled prenup or none at all. For once he would know what it is like to take it up the wazoo. His arrogance is his downfall and I believe he thinks she cares about him. Clue in Gerry, her photo is on escort sites for a reason. When you stop paying she will be gone.
    .
    Now that the train wreck is underway, even though I expected it, I’m actually surprised how neatly it is rolling out. Butler really is as stupid as many have said. Only a diehard f*cktard could think he has a career at this point. He may make a resurgence, never say never, it depends on if Joel Schmacker still wants Gerry to suck him off…..

If anyone’s going to end it, I definitely think it will be her. He’s not looking like a good bet if she wants a famous actor to help her become a high profile actress. Crowe and Depp are single now.

    Terrible Twos Says:

    @Manny – I don’t know. I’m not in that business so I can only speak on amateurish terms.
    I would say that the timing of the release of this film was dismal. When we went to the theater last night it was PACKED. There was a huge line just to buy tickets and another huge line to get it. I honestly cannot remember the last time I have ever seen that, not even this summer with lots of the blockbuster releases. There are lots of incredible films to choose from that appeal to people of all ages. Are people going to choose a film like PFK that is getting awful (really awful) press when there are so many other great options? Oh hell no.
    They could have waited for this release and put it in Jan/Feb when it would have had less competition and people were done with the holiday shopping.
    PFK apparently has a great cast. Almost every reviewer is baffled at how bad the writing was and how they failed to use the talents present in the actors they had. It wasn’t GB’s fault completely, I can’t place full blame on him.
    I can see Gerry doing better. So he’s not a bankable star on his name alone. That’s nothing to be ashamed of. Not many people are. He can be a part of great films, with great scripts and an ensemble cast. Someone needs to help him make better decisions on his film choices.
    If he had another role like Rock n Rolla where it had good writing, good supporting cast, etc. He could hit it out of the park. I’m just a fan and I’m not going to give up so easily on him. I don’t think people in the industry will either.

Also, as was mentioned above, it appears that he may have pizzed someone off that has some power, because he’s been taking quite a beating in the reviews, especially in L.A.

    “Playing for Keeps” (FilmDistrict) NEW – Cinemascore: B+; Metacritic score: 30

    $6,000,000 in 2,837 theaters; PSA: $2,115; Cumulative: $6,000,000

    Coming on the heels of the surprisingly decent “Red Dawn,” FilmDistrict took on another indie production, this time from Millennium, with less felicitous results.

    Gerard Butler headed a sprawling cast (Jessica Biel, Dennis Quaid, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Uma Thurman and Jane Greer) in this rom-com so the failure is not his alone, although it comes only six weeks after his “Chasing Mavericks” managed only a $5.8 million total despite opening in 2000+ theaters. At least this one made the top ten. What’s worse is that this a film he produced with veteran director Jonathan Mostow (“Terminator 3″), so the failure is even more acute.

    “PLaying for Keeps” was directed by Gabrielle Muccino, the most successful Italian filmmaker commercially in the US (and probably worldwide) in the last decade. After his arthouse film “The Last Kiss” attracted Will Smith’s attention, the two collaborated on “The Pursuit of Happyness” and “Seven Pounds” to close to $250 million total gross. This is his first film since, and marks a huge falloff for him.

    What comes next: This will eke out a second week, then disappear.

    He usually spend spend Christmas in Scotland and then he go somewhere else: 2010 Barbados, 2011 Uruguay and 2012 in Europe (I think he was in Amsterdam/London)

    In mg interview the person who was interviewing her said that even though she didn’t say it, she kind of gave to understand that they were planning to go to Scotland for Christmas and to Romania in New Year. But of course, so many thinks are said …

    Way back in sixth, Gerard Butler and Jessica Biel’s soccer-themed rom-com Playing for Keeps completely missed the goal, debuting with an awful $6.0 million and becoming the second straight wide release after Killing Them Softly (which plummeted 60 percent into 10th place this week) to flop out of the gate. Was it the terrible reviews that did it in? America’s general disinterest in soccer? The use of a gerund in the title? There’s no way to be sure. What we can be sure about, however, is that Playing for Keeps‘ $2,115 per theater average from 2,837 theaters was utterly terrible — all five holdovers ahead of it had stronger averages. We can also be sure that Gerard Butler’s career is in need of some CPR. Butler’s last wide release, the surfing drama Chasing Mavericks, earned $5.8 million in its entire run, and his two films before that, Coriolanus ($757,195) and Machine Gun Preacher ($538,690), were both non-starters. Perhaps most tragic for Butler’s career is the fact that he has no role in next year’s 300: Rise of an Empire. He could certainly use some Spartan street-cred right about now.

    I just think it would be a shame to let talent go to waste. Guys like Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt aren’t the best actors and they have done alright. They had a lot of support. Even so, Rock of Ages and Killing Them Softly haven’t done so hot either!
    Maybe consumers are getting picky! It’s not enough to be a big name. You have to have a great film. That depends on A LOT of people, not just the actors.

    I think its because she is a representation of how shallow he really is. Its so cliche for a man in his 40′s to be with a girl in her 20′s. It not a recipe for happiness just for instant gratification. I don’t see this being a long term (meaning a lifetime) relationship but both will get as much out of it as they can. I only hope they do part friends afterall neither one can blame the other because they both got something out of it. I say this because something similar happened at work except the girl found a guy that was closer to her age and would marry her. the 52 yr old she was dating was just using her and didn’t want a comitment. Either way I’m problaly not gonna follow gerry to much anymore. He has gone the way of most shallow hollywood actors and this story has gotten boring. On to bigger and better things.

    @What Santa Claus says…: I think Extra has the same interview but a different angle and you see the woman and it does not look like her.
    If the only reason she is with him was to further her career that was not a good idea. He can’t get work for himself it seems so no one is going to open up doors for her. Who knows maybe her association with him may be bad for her career if she she still wants one.
    She said she broke up with Brodie because of the long distance traveling took a toll, but if it’s true that she has moved in with Gerry then that is one obstacle out of the way.
    I don’t think this time if he goes to Scotland he will be doing the walk about like he did last time. He has always said that the Scottish are very open in regards to ripping him a second one if he tries to come off as someone who is showing off his status.The poster Bonny has said he is quite the talk in the pubs and some of the things said were not at all nice about her either.
    If we have learned anything from human nature it always seems funny to some to kick a person when they are down.
    I do think Gerry is going to disappear for a while as soon as his latest commitments are filled. So JJr’s we may be in for a long dry spell on Gerry news. He needs to regroup and stay out of the limelight for a while. No to long so he won’t be bypassed or forgotten.
    I hope he has a wonderful holiday with his family and the new year brings good news for him and his career.

    MADI'S MARRIAGE QUANDARY Says:

    Methinks Gerard Butler’s self-inflicted career wounds throw a wrench in the Madalina Ghenea marriage/business plan.
    . .
    GerBear is most definitely going to try to lock this one down now. He’s already eating Leonardo DiCaprio’s sloppy seconds with Madalina Ghenea. With career in a downward slide, what’s he gonna do if he passes on her? Start eating Rob Kardashian’s sloppy seconds?
    . .
    But GerBear presents a quandary for wee Madi now He still has the money she’s after. Hell his real estate holdings alone are worth millions, and he still has a good number of years of commercials and endorsements and club/hotel hosting gigs ahead of him.
    . .
    But all of the pictures of GerBear and Madi together where she’s looking right into the paparazzi lens and smiling are just a few of the items that prove that this girl likes attention. Posting things on Facebook to alert GerBear’s fans and the tabloids that they’re together, not to mention all the pics of her in bed and on a plane for the tabloids that she obviously knows watches her pages to run? Yeah. Madalina Ghenea likes attention like a junkie likes crack.
    . .
    GerBear is in for a long spell of bad, unflattering attention tho. IndieWire is right – Olympus Has Fallen is doomed too. GerBear’s career as a leading man is cooked and all he’s got ahead of him career-wise are more bad reviews and jabs and sell-out appearances.
    . .
    I don’t say that with glee. I think GerBear could have done some really good work if he focused on doing good work instead of being a Hollywood star chasing p~ssy, parties, and glory. He has been one of the luckiest, most privileged people in the world with every opportunity – and HE wasted it.
    . .
    So what’s a girl like Madi to do? She’s already got the “ho” stigma following her everywhere from jumping from Leonardo DiCaprio to Adrien Brody to Gerard Butler all in one year. If she dumps GerBear now that his career is solidly tanking, that just puts another nail in her opportunistic, gold-digging hobag coffin.
    . .
    But if she stays with GerBear, how is Madi gonna get the good self-promotion that she’s after? It’s a quandary.
    . .
    I think there’s gonna be a wedding in 2013. I think GerBear is so desperate to lock in a young hot babe before they stop lining up for his aging famous a.r.s.e. that he’ll try to seal the deal. A marriage would help repair some of Madi’s ****-for-career-advancement image. She can use his money and more importantly his connections [that are left] to promote herself, and then divorce him in a few years [after making a "good faith" attempt to "make it work"] when her still early-20s a.r.s.e. is ready to move on to younger pastures herself, taking with her a hefty prenup settlement and a string of press reports about how she is devastated about the failure of her marriage, but will rise triumphantly like a phoenix from the rubble! [isn't her strength in the face of adversity amazing, blah blah blah]
    . .
    Let’s face it. Like most Scottish men [even those that haven't fake-baked themselves to hell], GerBear is already looking pretty rough. When he’s 55, Madi is only going to be 35, and if she takes care of herself, still looking pretty hot and fully capable of still living the high life. It’s not likely that his one is going to slow down to live the pace of a 55-60 year old when she’s still only 35-40.
    . .
    So my money is on prenup and marriage certificate signed in 2013, divorce papers signed 2015-16. I doubt they’ll outrun Tom & Katie. That situation had a 16 year age difference to the 19 years between GerBear & Madi, and was way weirder. But GerBear is no Tom Cruise.
    . .
    You heard it on Just Jared first. Marriage in 2013. Divorce in 2015-16.

Also i think his constant interfering with the production side is wrong because its not like he has enough experience to know what he may like and relate to majority of ppl wont.

    As for his personal life i dont care who he shacks up with but its laughable when he says they met on commercial he prob got her that part for a work permit to stay in the country. And i remember reading while back before she was with him that when leo was filming the great gatsby she was flown in to keep him company in australia her living in romania you dont just bump into HW stars all in the same year randomly doesnt make sense

    It was defo an arrangement dont know of the status now and to be honest dont really care it must so hard for her to get a snippet here and half and face there in pics and follow guidelines to walk away when paps come. If she wants to be famous and get more work she picked the wrong guy his career is tanking and so will his money and now that ppl know she was with him doubt any other HW man would take her so if that was her plan shes failed miserably

    snowfall Says:

    My opinion: He really needs to stop with the pansie roles. The public fell in love with him in 300 for his strength and presence. There’s a reason people still ask him to yell “This is Sparta!”, they want to see his passion strength, fury… the Scorpio in him.
    =
    I think it would be great if (long shot) he could hook up with Quentin Tarantino and play a real f-up. Someone completely psycho. He’d have to do his homework and dig deep but I think it would be worth it if he did. Even his post-300 action films had no passion. Clyde in LAC was always calm and cool. He was a normal guy turned angry with nothing to lose. I wouldn’t say he was “psycho” and passionate in any scene except maybe the t-bone steak scene. The rest of it consisted of a calm guy doing violent stuff remotely. No “Sparta” in that performance at all. And in Gamer he hardly spoke at all. Again, he played a guy doing violent stuff but was pretty calm throughout. No “Sparta”.
    =
    I don’t know how many more comedies and family friendly fluff he needs to do to realize he’s no good at it. It’s not what people want out of him. The phannies may like it but they’ll like him no matter what he does so why try to please that audience?
    =
    I wish he’d stop with the ‘based on a true story/person’ as well. He wastes energy studying accents, researching the story or the person he’s playing instead of digging deep into his emotions and pulling out a passionate performance like we’ve seen him do in the past. Look at the reaction and praise actors have received for pulling out kick a/ss performances as psychos… Heathe Ledger, Tom Hardy, Javier Bardem, Charlize Theron etc. It’s time for GB to turn his reputation back 180 degrees. Time for his Sparta to come back. It’s his only chance of career salvation I think.
    =
    jmo of course.

    Am I kicking myself? LOL
    Sorry but I don’t really care. If his career tanks, oh well, it’s not my problem. As a movie goer I enjoy great acting. Heck, I even took a chance on Lincoln solely because of Daniel Day-Lewis and I’m glad I did.
    I have not seen a Brad Pitt orTom Cruise film in the theater or on DVD for that matter in YEARS. I don’t care what the Academy says, I have my own opinion about them.
    I like GB, not just his looks, but his charisma and what he does on the screen. It’s too bad for him that didn’t translate to higher earnings. I hope for his sake his career doesn’t stagnate because we need good actors to stay on the big screen. I’m tired of the old brigade of leading men like Cruise, Pitt, DiCaprio. To me, he is still fresh.

    Well Robert Luketic who was supposed to be on board as director for Brilliant when asked about it he said he was no longer attached to it.

He can do it if he puts his mind to it. Right now he is kind of drifting and wondering what has really happened to his career. He must be asking himself what is the public looking for from him because since his last four films were all pretty different in story line and all have not done well.

    this movie was:

    written by a man
    directed by a man
    produced by all men
    -
    that’s why. this is the case for about 99% of “women’s” movies and TV shows. they’re created by dumbass men who don’t know **** about how real women are or how we think, and basically the male characters are there for the writers to live out their fantasies.
    -
    the screenwriting field is notorious for how few women are in it, for both TV and movies. i know several people involved in the industry. if you’re a woman you’ll have a very hard time breaking in, especially if you want to work in comedy (because of the whole “women aren’t funny” thing). your best bet of making it is being hired to write for some sappy drama show.
    -
    anything that has to do with women is also extremely condescending from the outset. men think we’re frivolous and silly, so they automatically write dumb movies for us. it’s pretty sad.

    @missjude: I understand that it was actually a prequel and only a small cameo was written for Leonidas and that GB actually turned it down not the other way around. I don’t blame him for that. To go through the months of bodily abuse to get back to Leonidas form for just a small bit on the 300 prequel. Not to mention having the movie advertised all over the place as ‘starring’ him when he’s hardly in it at all (I’m remembering Drew Barrymore in Scream with that scenario). I don’t think he has to literally return to 300 in order to bring that type of presence back to the big screen. He just needs to dig deeper in his script choices and stop riding the easy train. Gerry, quit scheduling your movies around your social life and get to work.

    Lord Love a Duck Says:

    Gerard Butler is supposed to be a movie star. The camera loves him, he’s got a great head of hair and he comes off like someone you might actually want to watch on the big screen for 90 minutes.

    The only thing standing in his way seems to be his actual films; after sitting through the likes of “The Ugly Truth,” “Chasing Mavericks,” “The Bounty Hunter” and “Law Abiding Citizen,” I began formulating conspiracy theories involving a shadowy cabal of Hollywood suits who were determined to destroy his career after Butler flirted with some studio head’s wife at a party or cut someone off at the valet stand at a Beverly Hills bistro.

    Now comes the dreadful “Playing for Keeps,” and since Butler is credited as a producer (one of 14, granted, but a producer nonetheless), my conspiracy-theory theory is totally blown. In any event, this rock-stupid combination of family schmaltz and horny-MILF male fantasy does this charismatic leading man (and everyone else involved) no favors. From the wrap.
    ____________
    Is it at all possible that the conspiracy-theory is a reality? So many were shocked that PFK got such horrid reviews. Okay, it was not his best, but after seeing it, don’t think it was all that gutter worthy either.
    Grasping at straws and reading all your posts, guess I just feel so sad about the whole situation albeit might be his own undoing.
    Read this in the la times After Gerard Butler’s latest film flops at the box office this weekend, the actor could be benched from Hollywood’s A team.

    Somebody here called him “pigheaded”. That just might be it. Maybe all this might be a good wake up call and he will come back a new man? Good grief, what do I know. And a good night to all. Dumb Ducky

    Now that is funny. LMAO on that one because at first I didn’t get it and thought, who is it? Is he some good looking, young guy and than the light went on! What a hoot.

    Both Hugh and Anne had their hair chopped off. Russel Crowe looks like a real meanie. Gerry should have been part of that movie even if it would have been a small part.
    I wish he would not be judged by the dumbas-s rom coms. He is better than that.

    Another theory … she was planning to attend the Nobel Prize Awards ceremony to congratulate the Nobel Prize Laureates in Physics and GB said NO! That’s why she looked so sad at the airport! The Royal family is going to be there and she missed the opportunity to meet prince Carl Philip (who is still single). ;-)

    Agree with whoever said it —- he’ll have a tough time getting financing for future films he produces. It may be that he pizzed off someone and the A-lister co-stars decided the film was toast and the word got out among the insiders.

    What I want to know is, didn’t anyone on the PFK cast or crew see this coming? Surely someone involved with editing the final product could see it sucked. Couldn’t they have tweaked it and made it better? Or was Butler standing in the way? Maybe he’s so hardheaded he refused to allow anyone to fix the disaster.

    He’s got nothing much ahead and he may have burned some bridges with his four flops in a row.

    “re the luggage-And on Extra he said he had an “adventure” planned for the holidays. He’s probably gonna avoid the scene of his latest movie crime (The US) for a few weeks”

    He said “maybe Thailand” in Access Hollywood interview. Think he’s just planning to hide. Why else would so many interviewers ask about his plans for the holidays when interviewing at a premier? It seems that they both live in hotels, so maybe their luggage is the millionaire’s version of a shopping cart.

    In the video, note that MG is putting on her gloves before they get to the press. It had already been planned for her to wait in the car. Just can’t imagine being hidden away for seven months.

    .
    I don’t know where you’re getting this from but it’s not true. MG gets papped in Romania all the time. As a matter of fact, she was papped in Bucharest just a couple of weeks before she met Gerry. She goes home quite frequently. She appears on a lot of the chat shows and talk shows when she’s there. It’s still the only place that treats her like a celebrity in her own right and she continues to take full advantage of it. She’ll pop up in Romania at some point over the holidays (with or without GB is anybody’s guess) and she’ll a good spread of press coverage in Romania when she does.
    .
    I’m not saying she won’t spend time with Gerry, as well. She likely will given her current need to be glued to his side. But can’t I see her passing up the chance to show her face in Romania, given the attention she would get. She also seems very close to her family. I’m sure she’ll make at least a short trip home.

    Jax Says:

    I don’t think Gerry is going to be disappearing from the public any time soon. Starting in January, he’ll be promoting PFK in Europe and that will be followed by the award season party circuit. Gerry never misses those parties. He might take a brief break in late Feb to early March but after that he’ll be promoting “Olympus” hard. I think he’s going to turn himself inside out and back again promoting “Olympus” because it’s his last chance to stop the bleeding on his career. If he fails as an action hero he’s in big trouble. So after the holidays we’ll see lots of Gerry. He’ll be going for broke trying to get in the press up until the “Olympus” opening.
    .
    If “Olympus” fails, then Gerry might disappear to re-group. But for now, I think he’s just going to hustle even harder for the public’s attention. I’m not saying that’s a good idea, necessarily, but Gerry doesn’t seem the type to learn from his mistakes. He seems to like to repeat his mistakes on an ever grander scale until he’s forced to change.

    Just wanted to comment on the Oslo vid. Why did she suddenly hide from the camera after they walked part way out of the gate? And she stood off to the side out of the way. Did she take a separate cab?

    I think both of them are idiots. Gerry for treating her so shabbily and Maddie for putting up with it. Honestly would any of you stand to be treated so badly by a chump like Butler? He is not a nice guy and he never was a nice guy.

    Mairi Says:

    @Oh year:

    There is another aspect to this whole thing about Gerry getting backing for films. Movie making is a big business and it is a common practice for big business to invest in projects that will create a loss for tax deductions. If a company forsees a huge profit they will often deliberately invest in potential failures to create losses to reduce their tax liability. Often profits can throw them nto a higher tax bracket and it is better to have an off-setting loss. Better lose money by putting it in workers pockets than to pay Uncle Sam. Another thng I see so many of you ignoring is that even if a movie is a box office failure, it can still see profits with the DVD sales.

    I have also been watching hundreds of films on Netflix in the past couple of years and I have seen flops from most major actors which never got promoted or went straight to DVD. There just isn’t a lot of good material out there and too many good actors vyng for the roles. I have noticed an increasing number of movie stars doing TV series (many excellent ones) because of this.

    There are so many aspects to what creates a good film that you can’t place all the blame on Gerry. After all, Catherine, Uma and Judy accepted their roles and I doubt they would have if they thought the movie would be a flop. Often an actor accepts a role and the movie ends up to be nothng like what they had anticipated.

    I think she is not intended to be shown to the public, but to his business partners and people in HW. He want these people to believe he is in a stable relationship so he won’t mess it up doing what he usually do (going to clubs, sleeping with married women, etc).
    -
    He still can help her in many ways … perhaps a part in a commercial, asking somebody to cast her for a role, etc.
    -
    I am not saying this relationship is not real, just that after what happened at the beginning of the year he realized he needed to find somebody and try hard to keep the relationship (if not mg, it would have been somebody else).

    Terrible Twos Says:

    After reading the comments, I think what may be the problem is not necessarily his talent but his work ethic and ability to collaborate. Someone mentioned that Uma Thurman also has a bad filmography and she is also beautiful and talented, etc.
    If a bunch of talented actors can’t come together and say ‘hey you know what this isn’t working, it needs something, or it needs to be re-written’ then they might as well hire a bunch of models to star in films.
    I’ve been thinking, why would someone with obvious talent, looks and charisma have so many flops? And that is the only thing that I can come up with. What I have heard about other very successful actors, is they have the ability to inspire and motivate their co-stars and also take collaboration very seriously with the other actors, the director, etc. These people seem to have hit after hit after hit. Maybe a flopper-roo here and there but for the most part solid work.
    If this is the case (and I’m just guessing, I don’t know filmmaking) then he may be better off only choosing films that are VERY well-written to begin with. Problem is, he either can’t recognize great screenwriting himself or isn’t being offered those top scripts – they are given to someone else.
    Maybe a well-written cable TV show would be good for him. That is a regular gig where he can learn more about collaboration.

    I saw PFK over the weekend. It was entertaining, but just ok IMO. Gerry was good in it as all the other actors and actresses were. They all played their parts great, but as another poster said earlier….and I can not remember who. There was something kind of OFF about the final editing. It seemed choppy and did not have a good flow throughout the film. I hope I am making sense, as I don’t know how else to describe it.

    @TeaCakes: For opinion and conversations sake, is it possible after seeing her pictures looking mad at the airport, the ones in France etc. that she is trying to distance herself and not gerry’s choice? Maybe he isn’t hiding her but she is doing this on her own for whatever bizarre reason.
    Since the whole thing is so weird anyway. What woman would put up with that, is the question. She isn’t a babe and has been around, doubt she would take a back seat unless she wanted to. Have no idea why she is mad, but very seldom does she look happy and neither does he in each others company for that matter.

    @bodysnatcher: re post #384, for all those thumbs downs my preceding posts seemed to get, looks like someone at the GB camp is taking my advice in them pretty seriously.

    Unfortunately, after reading the comments about people calling him “Gerard superficial butler” in law school and him doing seriously bad things to piss off people in HW, I’m a little annoyed at myself for helping someone who has such a poor reputation as a misogynist. We’ll see if he can pull off what I recommended and if that will now be enough to actually help him. He needs way more than that, regardless, and just following free advice on a fan board won’t be enough.

    I looked at the Oslo video again. The luggage handler catches up to MG and follows her, as GB, Alan and the other two with their their carry-ons walk to the right into the view of the camera.

    For people asking why does MG put up with Gerry hiding her …. it appears that MG let a previous boyfriend hide her, as well. She posted this on her FB page in July 2011. The words indicate there was a man in her life back then that was keeping her in the shadows and making her “plan separate arrivals” to their meeting places. She wasn’t happy about it, but she is letting Gerry do the same thing. This was her post:
    .
    “I never thought I could ache with hurt while laughing out loud to our inside jokes.
    I never thought I’d imagine slapping your face yet desperately yearn for another embrace.
    I never thought I’d brush your arm while walking alongside you and be happy over that little.
    I never thought I’d be warm in the May sun and be chilled to the bone by your indifference.
    I never thought I’d be alone with you in an elevator but feel like I’m with a stranger in a foreign land.
    I never thought I’d be asked to leave where I was once begged and stalled to stay.
    I never thought I’d be waiting for you to get here instead of planning our separate arrivals.
    I NEVER thought I’d miss someone I saw everyday.

    I just think he’s not that good of an actor.  We all know that he’s  by nature a very, very shallow person. So where is he going to find the depth of emotion for his characters?  He doesn’t really have much compassion for other people either. This is aptly demonstrated by his treatment of woman, including the Romanian, and his cursory involvement in charity work.  He generally does very high profile gigs, with other famous people, or he just attaches himself to something a gives a quick photo op. What always stuck in my mind about him was how he kept harping on about being so moved when he looked a the pictures of the children in Sam Childer’s orphanage. That was very telling. Nowadays no self respecting, highly regarded actor would just look at the pictures, they would have gone to the actual orphanage. He’s just too shallow to be a good actor.

    You’re right. Maybe she’s the one who is not willing to go public now that she may have stalkers coming after her plus she’s got to be reading the rags like JJ to see what people think of her. It’s kind of silly IMO since they’ve already gone public. They should live their lives and not worry what anyone thinks. The whole thing is beyond bizarre.

    She did much more than that. She walked away to another small area where the luggage was, and than was later seen going out of the door ahead of GB and waiting far down the sidewalk from the car GB and party approached. Did she wait for the camera to be turned off before she walked to and got in the car or was made to take a different car than Gerry as it appeared she did in L.A. I can see stepping aside when the reporter is talking to GB that is only polite, but she should be stepping back in to walk away with him, not aside, out of sight and continuing in that mode out to the car. It’s not what’s wrong with her, but what is wrong with him allowing that kind of treatment of his girlfriend. JMO

I’m sure she is a Cancer or Virgo but never a Leo. I think she tries to depict herself as a Leo. she made a silly comment to the Romanian press about how she is a Leo star sign so doesn’t take responsibility for her fault and doesn’t admit when she’s wrong. it was a really stupid comment and sounded like her desperately trying to come across as a text book Leo. but when you see her in interviews she lacks the natural confidence and demeanour of a Leo. she’s just pretending. it seems her whole personality is pretend. very sad and also just weird.

    I wonder if her man knows all this? all the lies? he’s in close proximity to her so would have worked a lot of her deceits out by now. I wonder if he lets her know this? just weird. yuck

    Like all his movies, he is the famous player who hopes to mature via a very young woman. She is to save him. His Wonderwall. They will learn to put up with each others crap.

    There may be many reasons why a younger like MG woman may prefer to choose an older man.

    -They may be more matured and responsible. Not much more than 5 years in Gerry’s case
    - Older men mostly have established Careers or Business which gives the financial stability and comforts a lady desire. Cha- Ching
    -Older men tend to be more caring and may pamper her more and also be an authority figure in her life who takes change of things better.
    -They are more reliable and disciplined compared to their young counterparts. – good luck with that.
    -They are also knowledgeable because of their own experiences about what makes a relationship work and do not commit the mistakes younger men does. – surrrrrre?!
    -He is more knowledgeable because of his age and because of this wisdom he can teach her and make her feel more secure and confident.

    If it is not his Qualities which make a younger woman drawn to him then may be she is genuinely in love him?

    younger men have always been more caring in my experience and from what I’ve seen around me. men can become very cynical and narcissistic with age. men over 30, the kind that only date young chicks are hugely lacking in a lot of areas from my experience – sexually incredibly selfish also. its a myth that older men are more experienced and mature than younger men.

    @NO: people will be wondering why little maddie and gerry jr don’t have mummas big lips and huge ****. their friends will be remarking “i thought your mumma could play piano” when she plays jingle bells badly with one finger. the fact that little gerry jr is bombing with his quantum psychics home-work will be a mystery to all considering his mumma is an expert an’ all. his teacher will be flummoxed when maddie jrs date of birth changes again to a medley of mummas current favourite numbers “are you sure you were born 03/3/33?” It will be very confusing for people if gb and mg have kids…

    @Lalique: …and apropos genetically good looking, have you seen her brother and grandmother? Her ugly brother looks like a member of the romanian mafia, and her grandmother like a witch.

    Anyhow, with regards to my former comments, I’m trying to point out that he is a “media” star, not an actor, and it seems that his personal life get’s more attention than his acting skills….so, I’m calling it as I see it.

    She is very tall, sometimes that´s all you need to be to become a model. Her face is not the face of a supermodel. That is the reason she never became a supermodel and did the underwear and erotic stuff, like a darker version of Pam Anderson imo. And with a little help from the doctors, you can get famous in Italy and Romania, being a cheap Monica Belucci, Angelina Jolie or Sophia Loren copy. And she is so proud to be a copycat, oh my, she is so stupid.

    After the last event, she was not allowed to get papped next to her beloved Gerard, or to leave in the same limousine, cause his management sees her as a career killer. And she also was not aloud to stand next to him in Oslo while they left the airport, as he gave a short interview and the paps took pics. This is degrading for a girlfriend, but not for her, she seems to be familiar with it. This is when a former stupid escort sl.ut. turns into Gerard Butlers wife?Congratulations.

    @1988 a lie: You will note that many media outlets refer to her age as 25 so the secret is out.

    @Samoa cookie: And older men in mid life crisis or heading into senility like Hugh Hefner are suckers who will open their wallets without question for their sex kittens. You can’t tell me any of the women in Hef’s harem are mature by anyone’s standards.

    What a empty heart butler, I agree butler and woman meant for each other,sadly butler has herpes, this will be very tricky having kids, I guess they do c-section, i had my kids all natural. I tried to believe butler was not fake, but he’s been saturated and misuse of power, now the big stuff happens, you cannot cause avalanches for others and expect to not have payment. This should be interesting. Go ahead and thumbs me down now. See you on the other side butler. Dargabriel

    She could never be his little girl, haha, she’s too tall, he wants a little girl, like someone whom always looks younger for their age and can wear junior size clothes forever and small feet and petite, little girl and childlike. Mg does not fit the build butler, you know this. Dar666gabriel, ok here comes the thumbs down.

    With all due respect, may I suggest better glasses so you can see correctly.
