Misogyny isn't cool @ 12/09/2012 at 4:07 pm

You mean people didn’t want to pay to watch Gerard Butler’s ode to misogyny that parallels his own life, Playing for Keeps? How could that be?
-
I mean why wouldn’t women, 50% of the population, want to pay to see a movie where two gorgeous women in their 40s (Catherine Zeta-Jones and Uma Thurman) are depicted as being desperate and sex-starved, pursuing a 40-something man (Gerard Butler) who rejects them while he pursues his barely 30 year old ex-wife (Jessica Biel)?
-
Particularly when Gerard Butler does the exact same thing in his own life, rebuffing women who are anywhere close to his age and continually dating young models in their early 20s, including his current girlfriend Madalina Ghenea, who he started sleeping with when she was just 23?
-
In real life, after walking this planet for more than 4 decades, and supposedly having all sorts of different experiences and learning all sorts of different things, Gerard Butler believes that his mental and emotional match is a 23 year old girl who most people have seen with her clothes off than clothes on, and is best known for shagging her way into her SAG card. Is it any wonder that he didn’t realize how insulting Playing for Keeps is to women and would tank?

@Misogyny isn’t cool:

GB could learn something from Andy Rooney:

As I grow in age, I value
older women most of all.
Here are just a few reasons why.

An older woman will never wake you in the
middle of the night to ask,
“What are you thinking?” She doesn’t care
what you think.

An older woman knows herself well enough to be
assured in who she is, what she is, what she
wants and from whom. Few women past the age
of 50 give a damn what you might think about her.

An older single woman usually has had her fill
of “meaningful relationships” and “commitment.”
The last thing she needs in her life is
another dopey, clingy, whiny, dependent lover!

Older women are dignified. They seldom have a
screaming match with you at the opera or in
the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course,
if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you
if they think they can get away with it.

Most older women cook well. They care about
cleanliness and are generous with praise, often undeserved.

An older woman has the self-assurance to introduce
you to her women friends. A younger woman with
a man will often ignore even her best friend
because she doesn’t trust the guy with other women.
Older women couldn’t care less.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to
confess your sins to an older woman. They always know.

An older woman looks good wearing bright red lipstick.
This is not true of younger women or drag queens.
Once you get past a wrinkle or two, an older
woman is far sexier than her younger counterpart.
Her libido’s stronger, her fear of pregnancy gone.
Her experience of lovemaking is honed and reciprocal
and she’s lived long enough to know how to please
a man in ways her daughter could never dream of.
(Young men, you have something to look forward to.)

Older women are forthright and honest.
They’ll tell you right off you are a jerk if you
are acting like one.

Yes, we praise older women for a multitude of
reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal.
For every stunning, smart, well-coifed babe of 70
there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants
making a fool of himself with some 22 year
old waitress.

Ladies, I apologize for all of us.

That men are genetically inferior is no secret.
Count your blessings that we die off at a far
younger age, leaving you the best part of your
lives to appreciate the exquisite woman you’ve
become, without the distraction of some demanding
old man clinging and whining his way into your serenity.”

I always thought..... @ 12/09/2012 at 5:08 pm

@Misogyny isn’t cool:

I always thought men that date models specifically or even worse lingerie model only perceive them as s/ex objects clooney knows he wont marry or have kids so he only dates them for killing time i suppose. I dont agree with massive age keeps but men do tend to go for younger women in all walks of life if she was a doctor, teacher or even an humanitarian i prob could relate to the attraction.

Also i dont agree that just cause your a model your classed beautiful and stunning i see so much beautiful and pretty girls at my local supermarket

Oh myyy!! I am so happy!! The movie is awesome!! And i have to admit that i love how it beated twilight….even A MONTH after!!!!!!!!!!!!

@I always thought…..:

Indeed, same with Leo DiCaprio (who I LOVE as an actor btw so this is in no way a big ol’hater thing). Some guys just clearly aren’t the marrying/kids type & well tbh why force them to be. I’d rather everyone (men & women) were clear & upfront about their general life aims/wishes especially if it were to involve kids. Last thing anyone should want is a dad/mum who didn’t really want to have kids anyway.

Don’t see why there is always this big push for oh he’s 30+ he should be marrying & settling down w/kids by now. Or this pressure on celebs to always say “oh well yeah of course I’d like kids…one day” when everything in their life says “hell no!”. I say let people live their lives, don’t force them into a societal “ideal” of marriage & kids if it isn’t right for them. Nothing wrong w/being unmarried or not having kids, or married & having kids or any combo of those 2, so long as everyone is happy w/those choices & lives.

This is because Daniel Craig is a good actor and a decent man.

Another Flop @ 12/09/2012 at 6:53 pm

Welp, looks like ANOTHER flop for Gerard. I don’t know why studios keep giving this guy roles in big budget productions or paying him big money. He’s had chance after chance to prove himself and he hasn’t been able to prove he’s worthy of that kind of money. He should go back to the UK.

Not sure why Gerard, Jennifer A., Katherine H., and a few others are still allowed to act in movies. Box office poison.

Real Men vs. Weak Men @ 12/09/2012 at 7:13 pm

Is it coincidence that Gerard Butler’s current girlfriend Madalina Ghenea was also doing Leo DiCaprio a year ago? She’s a favorite among the rich and standardless.
Using the term “model” to describe her is a bit of a stretch. I guess technically she models, but most of her photos have only been see on her Facebook page. She’s not on the runways at any fashion week. She’s not appeared in any U.S. fashion magazine. She’s not really known outside of Italy and Romania (her home country) except for the fact that she’s dated both Leo DiCaprio and Gerard Butler in the same twelve month period. She doesn’t do fashion modeling. She models underwear and a lot of the photos are so tawdry that they’ve been featured on porn sites.
Sleeping her way to the top seems to be working for her though. She says that she wants to be an actress. She’s been in a couple of movies where she’s been a model or a stripper (she’s a method actress LOL) but she just shot some part in a movie with Jude Law.
Relatively obscure model gets part in movie with Jude Law over other actresses that have been paying their dues and after sleeping with Leo DiCaprio and Gerard Butler? Gee, wonder how she got the part.
It doesn’t surprise me when these guys go for super young hot girls but there are a lot of super young hot girls out there with some class. I think it says a lot about a man when he goes for the girls who are easy to get.
.
MG is a case-in-point. Gerard Butler said he started dating Madalina Ghenea when he invited her to Iceland with him right after meeting her and she said yes. Madalina Ghenea’s relationship with Leo DiCaprio came out when he asked her to go to Australia with him right after they met at Cannes 2011 and she said yes.
Classy, huh.
.
By contrast – Daniel Craig’s love is the gorgeous and formidable Rachel Weisz. A man attracted to a woman like that is a MAN.

Trying to figure it out @ 12/09/2012 at 8:13 pm

@Fruitfly
Thank you for printing those marvelous Andy Rooney words.

@FRUITFLY: get over it! he likes younger women…many hollywood women like younger men. it’s not 1950

to Another Flop @ 12/10/2012 at 2:42 am

na, don’t sent Butler back to us. I very much prefere if you would keep him LOL Sent Craig back instead.

I love Daniel but I saw the formidable “KIlling Them Softly”. BRILLIANT!!!!

There’s not a “B” performance in the whole film.

@Real Men vs. Weak Men:
I am from Romania, and trust me I didn’t hear about her either until she slept with DiCaprio.

Looks like many Pattinson’s adorers have changed their mind… James Bond is simply a classic character that has been popular for a couple of decades. Together with Sam Mendes’ determination to bring a piece of Nolan’s work into the movie and make it an irresistible blockbuster, it isn’t surprising at all. Although I have to confess that it was boring. Why do people cling so much to shallow pseudo-intellectual blockbusters or to boring action movies?

Javier Bardem has been nominated for the SAG award for best supporting actor. Javier is brilliant as Silva.
