    It’s like he notifies the paparazzi himself and lets them know where he will be for some “candid” shots.

    So if the world comes to an end, according to his last interview (I know people) Butler will save himself (and a few lingerie models). He has a seat to watch the world implode from above (and procreate a new Butkingdom).

    Do he really think anyone would be saved?

    He “knows” people.

    Nice try Gerry. I know its self publicity, but it also brings a worthwhile project to the fore.

    Shame you spoiled it all last night with the one finger salute. No matter what you do today, you’ll still look a complete j*rk.

    DAY-UM! The least he could do is take her by the arm and walk the red carpet with her! She seems contented to be little more then a traveling bimbo!

  • so over it

    UK viewers – tune into ‘The One Show’ tonight at 7pm, to no doubt see Butler continue to make an even bigger ars/e of himself most likely by swearing on a live show. *groan*

    At least those smiles seem genuine.

    I was reading the DM this morning, and apparently he left the restaurant he went to after the premiere, ALONE, and yet we know she was there. These two are so completely bizarre, and yet, I think I’m seeing a pattern. Anyone else spotting it?

    Can you give us a clue?

  • Gerry Sheen & Madalina Fleiss

    Gerard Butler has given interviews about how Alan followed up with him when Gerry didn’t show up for their initial meeting and promised Gerry that he would be a star. Stardom is what Gerry has always been after, and he got it. He doesn’t care about being taken seriously as an actor. He never has. Look at his film choices. The Ugly Truth? The Bounty Hunter? Playing for Keeps? Gamer? Those aren’t movies that an actor who’s had a break like 300 chooses to do if he wants to be taken seriously. Those are movies that an actor chooses to do when he wants to make money and become Mr. Vanilla Big Budget Romcom star.
    That’s what Gerry got and as a result, when he does a movie like MGP, no one cares. Because he’s Mr. Vanilla Big Budget Romcom star trying to be taken seriously. It comes off as contrived.
    Can you blame anyone when Gerry has chosen to use his fame to be best buddies with all the club promoters where the paparazzi live and to get into the pants of legions of young women – which he admits to BTW. He may give interviews now saying he’s not a womanizer, but he’s also given tons of interviews about how he’s been a bad boy and has slept with “100 times” the list of women he’s been asked about on shows like Howard Stern.
    So which is true? Has Gerry Butler taken advantage of the fact that young hot girls are seduced by fame and will shag him for it or does he respect women too much to engage in such exploitation? The real Gerry Butler doesn’t even have to stand up. Someone who talks out of different sides of his mouth the way he does busts himself and his lack of integrity.
    Especially when he chooses to make a girlfriend out of a known fameho like Madalina Ghenea who was obviously hellbent on landing some big Hollywood name for a boyfriend. If Gerry doesn’t make “an honest woman of her,” you can bet there will be another famous fling in her future, though with probably and even seedier character, because what man of substance would have anything to do with such a shallow, opportunistic creature?
    Other than Gerard Butler, who wants the whole world to know that his sexual proclivities involve young girls who could be his children and have no problem stripping down for the whole world to see, presumably because he thinks it means something about him if a hot young girl who everyone wants to see virtually naked has chosen him.
    What a sad pair. It’s actually kind of nice to see karma come back to bite Gerry Butler in the a$$ with this career implosion. It’s a good message to send to young men and women who might see what Gerry Butler and Madalina Ghenea are about, and realize that it does have a cost in terms of what others perceive about their dignity (as in they have none).

  • Madalina Ghenea is Degrading

    @Gerry Sheen & Madalina Fleiss:
    Madalina Ghenea is an embarrassment to women and a horrible example for young girls!!! It’s bad enough that she’s one of these girls who engages in the seedier form of “lingerie modeling.” I’m not a big fan of lingerie modeling generally, but there’s Victoria’s Secret and then there’s what Madalina Ghenea does, which are photos that land on porn sites.
    Add on top of that her Hollywood bed hopping. People say “every woman would have accepted Leo DiCaprio and Gerard Butler.” NO THEY WOULDN’T. Some of us have some self-respect and don’t think you can call yourself successful if the way you got what you want is through prostitution.
    But what really gets me is the plastic surgery. So many girls have such self-esteem issues, and it’s made so much worse by the fashion industry and advertising that puts so much pressure on young girls and young women to look a certain way.
    Then you have someone like Madalina Ghenea whose photos make clear that she’s at least had lip injections or lip implants to try and get the Angelina Jolie look and that she did it before she was even 23.
    What are young girls supposed to think when a beautiful young model like Madalina Ghenea thinks that looking a certain way is so important, that such superficial concerns are so important, that she has work done to her face?
    What are young girls supposed to think when a beautiful young model like Madalina Ghenea has work done to her face for the PURPOSE of modeling and selling a look to the public that is not just an unrealistic standard of beauty because it’s not typical, but is LITERALLY unrealistic because Madalina Ghenea had plastic surgery to get it?
    Madalina Ghenea is one of the most degrading, terrible examples for young women that I’ve seen in so long on so many levels – the plastic surgery, the purposeful objectification of her body for money, her self prostitution with famous men to get fame herself. Madalina Ghenea is EVERYTHING that parents and countless organizations working to support young women tell girls that they shouldn’t be. She degrades herself in ways that all of us who know young girls tell them they shouldn’t do. And she’s rewarded for it by people like Gerard Butler.
    Let’s all just pray that neither of these plastic fools has children. Gerard Butler and Madalina Ghenea have both already done enough to promote demeaning and superficial interests among young people. They don’t need to pass it on to any children of their own.

  • bitly

    hahaha…sour grapes all the way, jealous old hags

  • gerry shouldn’t have kids

    @Madalina Ghenea is Degrading: gerry shouldn’t have kids. whenever he talks about kids, it’s always from an angle of how fun he thinks they are, having them run around and so on. nothing about him says that he’s ready for the truth of having children, that as much as you love them, they’re also really hard hard hard work and the biggest responsibility will have have in his or her life. a man who thinks of children that way would never have children with someone like madalina ghenea, because the child might be a girl and what would that girl have to look up to? next-to-nude photos of her mom taken for cash? videos of her mom in skimpy underwear wriggling for men? a line of famous sex partners? it’s bad enough that having a father like gerard butler would teach the girl that it’s okay for men to use her for sex so long as they’re rich and famous. to have a mother like madalina ghenea who doesn’t balance all of that out but just makes it seem more okay?
    i guess the same would apply for a boy in terms of it teaching him that it’s okay to be a player, but i think it would do real damage for a girl. gerry doesn’t think about these things, what would be good for a child. he just knows he wants one. people like that shouldn’t be parents.

  • TravelingCircus

    @Snow Flakes: It’s nothing major, just that she pops up when he’s going to be papped going to an appearance, and when there’s nothing going on, or he’s just running around casually, she’s not around, with large gaps in between. I’m surprised one of the detectives here or the Russians haven’t made a chart by now, lol. It’ll be telling to see just how much time they spend together now that he doesn’t have anything going on career-wise until next spring. And I don’t care what the fantasizers say, I’m not feeling a romance vibe here. Sorry, it’s just not there.

    @bitly: You really are silly. You act like this is all new. Posters all over the interwebs were saying these same things about her a year ago when she was with LDC. This isn’t about GB. She’s established a reputation now which will not disappear. Are you going to move to the threads of the next celebrity she hooks up with and pepper the thread with your silly taunts then, as well? It won’t change a thing.

  • JMO but…

    I think he was drunk, and I think he goes through periods of drinking, despite his denials. There are just too many reports to the contrary, and it looks like he outed himself on the One Show. All just my personal opinion, but that’s what I believe.

  • Feeling better now

    @bitly: Exactly!! And no I am not LOL either. The threads here are so trite anymore. Gerry is now on his own turf and sounds like he doesn’t give flying scud what he says and about time too. You cannot see a joke or sarcasm when it is right in front of your face. He hasn’t changed. He is the same as he has always been only wiser and older. He isn’t dumb, strange or whatever else you are calling him. He knows exactly who he is. He isn’t broke either. He has made some great movies and if he chooses to, will make more.
    Why is it that everything you once enjoyed about him, now changes into something pathetic. He always said what he thought and that is what you once liked about him. Find a clooney thread, he is safe and dull. I’ll take the scotsman any time. If he loves the woman he is with, good for him. If not, you will find out soon enough. He doesn’t owe you anything and certainly not his private affairs so you can further treat him and her with gross injustice.
    He looks great, doing charity work…..isn’t that what you are all complaining that he doesn’t do. The kids with cancer, the Artists for Peace, the football league. He was doing the concert to benifit the Nobel prize and you think he should have been in NY for 12/12 concert. Good Lord, what do you want? Have any of you seen his movies, read any of the positive reviews. or just sit at your computers pumping out trash like him taking overdose. PLEASE have mercy and get a life. I am sticking with the scot.

  • so over it

    At least he didn’t swear, that’s the only positive I can say about his appearance on ‘The One Show’.

    No wonder his mother’s in Poland right now touring Auschwitz.

    Gerry, you need some serious professional help and fast.

  • Feeling better now

    Oh by the way, the show was fantastic, shame you missed it, but go right ahead and make your crap judgement calls.
    Gerry would make a great father. Whoever the diss was that said kids are all work, obviously doesn’t like them much. I have a few and think they are wonderful little people and enjoy every moment with them. Get off the computer and find out what your missing.

  • Kali Orexi

    @so over it: Just watched the One Show episode and I must say, he was quite funny and charming. No swearing, no flipping the finger, just the Gerry we know and love from a couple of years ago. Talking lovingly about Margaret and that she’s his best buddy and that he’s spending Xmas with his family. Too bad I’m celebrating Xmas overseas otherwise I would’ve driven to Comrie for a surprise visit lol

  • Mmmmmmm

    Jesus, how much has he had to drink?? insults the whole of Glasgow before implying that Alex was going to the toilet to play with herself….

    I had to turn over, he was making a fool of himself!

  • lolita

    @Feeling better now: I was one person who thought Gerry would have enjoyed being at the 12/12 event because he likes music and would have loved to see the Stones perform. He also looked like he had a good time at the Nobel concert. Dancing on the stage with Jennifer. I think right now Gerry is dealing the best way he can with what is going on with his career. It can’t be easy to keep a smile on your face when so many want to tear you down. Is he being a little defiant, I think so but he probably is letting his critics know if they want to attack him, he is ready to respond to it. He can be a pistol when he wants to be but it seems like he has been left high and dry by his costars to face all the flack about PFK’s.

    I’m confused here.

    WTF? Is he in full-melt-down mode? Based on the tweets it sounds like he’s losing it. Any good rehab facilities in Glasgow? This makes me sad.
