    This is nearly the end of the show, and she’d had enough of him by then

  • The fans don’t care about him

    This is where Gerry’s fans really hurt him.
    He does stuff that makes everyone else think “what’s wrong with this guy” and they defend defend defend, saying no, he’s fine, he’s just being funny, he’s just being a saucy bloke, blah blah blah. Then he turns up in rehab because like everyone else but them saw, there was something wrong.
    Enablers don’t help anyone.
    An ambitious 24 year old underwear model who started dating him when things didn’t work out with other Hollywood actors – the fans say “that’s GREAT!”
    His movies suck and do horribly at the box office – the fans say “no, they’re great, and the failures are everyone else’s fault!”
    He says things in interviews that makes most people cringe – the fans say “oh, he was just being funny!”
    The fans don’t care about him. They care more about their fandom of him and are terrified of being perceived as unsupportive. It’s a good thing that they’re not actually in his life and are just fans. They would be horrible friends.

  • christmasfairy According to @boxofficemojo #PlayingForKeeps is in more theaters this week than last week… are some theaters trying to go out of business?

  • time to ask

    OMG OMG OMG…what a tragedy in Connecticut…26 people dead, 20 are children.
    There are no words for this……… my heart is with their families!!!

    What is going on? I wonder if there is a video of this interview? I seriously hope he wasn’t drunk. I know of a great rehab center similar to BF that would work wonders for him.

  • Mmmmmmm

    I have just listened the radio interview posted in the previous thread ….
    So according to him she is “a lucky lady” because she is with HIM …
    He is a real jerk, isnt’ it? A real man would have said “I AM THE LUCKY ONE”. I am starting to feel sorry for her … well, no really … they deserve each other!!! LOL!
    Secondly, did he changed the story about the “homeless person” … I think that in a previous interview he told the same story but he said that the person in question was a friend of him and not himself.

  • Untamable Shrew

    @JMO but…: Post 31,I’m telling you he has a look of a drunk.I seen people who ended up with that look.I agree with you 100 percent too.

  • Mmmmmmm

    More comments from out there … what’s wrong with him????
    “#10 Zombies will be foaming at the mouth over this.
    And will naturally move to boycott Gerard Butler films!”
    “#11 the Phantom has spoken”

  • Obvious

    @So Swedish: Clearly Kali is the troll. The troll has a tendency to make itself obvious by popping up and posting under several different socks, but all at the same time and with a short span between posts. When you see Aussie, bitly, or any of the others pop up, you know the troll is here.

  • Untamable Shrew

    @The fans don’t care about him: Very smart post-53.Well said.He needs help.It’s clear he’s on something.

  • christmasfairy

    Gerard Butler on The One Show…car crash tv…managed to offend Glaswegians and Holocaust survivors in first five minutes. Sober? Really???


    @Untamable Shrew: He’s losing weight rapidly again as well, just like last year. I agree that he has the look of a drinker, IMO, and I’ve known plenty of them. That whole thing of going to rehab for a couple of weeks was laughable. No problem, no matter what kind, is solved that quickly. I knew there would be trouble when he was back at the parties a couple of days later. And Coachella, what can I say? The pics from that were scary.

  • christmasfairy Gerard Butler needs to fire his agent yesterday. So many awful films..

    @Obvious: Excuse me, are you calling me a troll? I have been following GB since Mrs Brown and have been a big fan. If you have read my earlier posts you will have noticed that I have ALL bar a few only released in the States DVDs and that I was going to donate them to charity. I HATE what has become of him and that he is surrounded by leechers like a lot of HW stars that will do whatever they can to keep a hold of their jobs! I guess it’s damned if you do, damned if you don’t but I did enjoy the one show interview. I despise the fact that he’s a bit of an Errol Flynn -for those who don’t know who I’m talking about, he was well known for his love for young girls – but he has done some great work! POTO, The Jury, Dear Frankie, Rock’nRolla. Shame on you Obvious for accusing people to be trolls when you know no effing thing about them!

  • papermoon

    Just listened to that Capital fm radio interview. Some what weirdly. Seems he’s spending christmas with his mum, but isn’t sure where his gf is going to be spending it. He said that they would probably meet up after. He figures she going home for the holidays. It would be interesting if she asked if she could spend the holidays with him and his family. Can anyone remember the last time she went home. Not that it matters. Just an interesting thought. Thumb down if need be.

  • christmasfairy @achrisevans Gerard Butler used to drink cider in the park with my wife and her pals from school. She doesn’t talk about it……..much

  • So Swedish

    To Kali Orexi and Obvious:
    Thank you for your answers. Hopefully I’ll get to see the show and form my own opinion.

    Or maybe I should’nt be hoping for it… :-/

  • christmasfairy Anyone see the one show earlier?Gerrard butler came across a bit weird. Bet lots of women have gone off him after seeing him earlier #weird

    @ste_mills I thought he was half cut but he said he no longer drinks. Maybe drugs?? Struck me as a bit of an obnoxious twat tbh!

  • http://JJ London

    In Glasgow Rangers football fans get called zombies by Celtic football fans,it’s all banter.Thats what he meant by zombies in Glasgow.
    Believe me Rangers football fans call Celtic fans names also.
    All banter.

  • Kali Orexi

    @So Swedish: I have kept it on my sky box so if you ever need a copy just let me know. Have to figure out first how to copy it from skybox to USB stick though

  • christmasfairy #oneshow Gerad Butler?!? Err…wait until after the show to party hey?

  • Mmmmmmm

    If people in Glasgow are aware of that, then why are so many people annoyed by his comments? Can somebody explain what was wrong with him on the show? Something else he said?

  • So Swedish

    @Kali Orexi:
    Thank you for your kind offer! I think I’ll wait till it comes out on youtube or similar site, it probably will.
    Have a great weekend! :)

  • Mmmmmmm

    What about the twitter of #48 … why is his cousin embarrassed to be related to him?

  • Question

    @papermoon: I don’t want to listen to it, but I find that incredibly strange. Did he say they would “probably” meet up after, and that he didn’t know what her plans were for Xmas? If so, that is beyond bizarre.

    @Kali Orexi: Post 67.Not everyone that posts is here all day.So if I pop out a couple of comments here and there.I’m not a troll either,but I’m fairly new here.

  • ..
  • Kali Orexi

    @Untamable Shrew: I’m not here all day either and I don’t respond to a lot of comments but when I am being accused of being a troll I will respond! nowadays it’s so easy to accuse anyone of anything and thankfully I have a thick skin but I cannot stand injustice. for a lot of people it doesn’t matter if you say anything positive or negative, you will get thumbed down anyway…. All I want for GB is to get good parts in films, start smartening up his life, lose the leeches that are surrounding him and find a decent woman instead of a starf*cker that has been swapped around more blokes than spin the bottle….

  • Kali Orexi

    @So Swedish: Have a grat weekend too So Swedish :) x

  • Can’tGetEnough

    What’s the deal with this interview? I haven’t heard it, but all of these tweets are obviously from the UK, so if this was his idea of “British humor”, he did a poor job of it. Regardless of whether he was drinking or not, he was apparently very offensive.
    Between this and the photos from yesterday, I’m not sure what to think. What’s wrong with him??
    And he said in the earlier interview “there is a lucky lady right now”. Right now?????
    I’ll be shocked if she doesn’t spend Christmas with him in Scotland. She doesn’t seem to visit her family often, so I was surprised he made this comment about Christmas. We’ll certainly get the tweets if she’s there with him.

  • christmasfairy

    It was his general demeanour, imo. Very loud and hyper (which some would say was obnoxious), very fidgety, he talks so fast he slurs at times, really didn’t seem to want to participate in the last section of the show (wrapping presents), and for some reason he’d tied green ribbon/string around a teddy bear which made it look like it was auditioning for those ‘Fifty Shades’ books.
    Made a couple of remarks which have offended some, namely the ‘zombies’ comment after a video of the film industry in Glasgow was shown. And then whilst explaining where his mother is presently, the presenter misunderstood what GB was saying and thought his mother had moved to Poland. GB’s reply was something like, “Who wants to live in Auschwitz?”
    But, generally it was his overall demeanour that’s made people question whether he was sober or not.
    Personally, I thought he came across as a bit of an ars.e, but everybody will view it differently.

    Drinking with Gerard Butler. Don’t know who he is but he likes my shoes

  • papermoon

    @Question: I think that he said that they would hang out before or after christmas or something. Here’s the link. scoll down the page to where it says “BEST BITS’ and you will see the audio interview there

  • http://JJ London

    @Mmmmmmm: 75…The people in Glasgow who will be annoyed about the zombie comment would be the Glasgow Rangers fans,after all it was said in Television.Banter goes on between Celtic and Rangers fans all the time .It is one big competition.

  • here’s one answer

    @time to ask: This is a tragedy beyond comprehension. IMO kicking God out of our schools and our lives was the first mistake. Makes Gerard Butler’s antics seem quite trivial now, dunnit.

  • christmasfairy “The Butler Did It.” The Butler in question being Gerry. The “it” being every narcotic under the sun. #PaisleyBoy #Shambles

  • Mmmmmmm

    Thanks for your answer, and all the description. I think I understand now.
    What can I say … so sad and pathetic for a man of his age.

  • Mmmmmmm

    Gerard Butler – The One Show, Dec ’12 !!!

  • Bar tweets

    Clearly he’s free from the ball and chain, cuz it sounds like he’s right back to his old ways. He must be drinking a lot of sodas tonight by the sounds of it.


    Watched the One Show. Is he rapidly trying to become Charlie Sheen. He looked p!ssed up or high and was downright offensive. What an awkward and horrible interview for 7pm prime early evening entertainment it was terrible. His behaviour reminds me of his LAC sh@g tour and the press conference from hell when he did so much damage to his rep infront of the British Press, and was almost incoherent infront of them. Seriously, what has happened. I am only interested in whether I want to watch the movie. On his appearance and his attitude this early evening; no more Mr Butler. Find someone else to watch you films.

  • food 4 thought

    Just from all these tweets, it seems obvious he is on an epic coke and booze bender. Hyper, unable to focus, obnoxious comments. He’s always had ants in his pants, but this sounds way over the top even for him. And he has no idea what the “girlfriend” is doing for Christmas? That is the phoniest “relationship” since ….. ever. Perhaps Clan Butler banned her strung-out looking @ss from their home.

  • Mmmmmmm

    Doesn’t he sound a little bit angry when he mentions that his mother missed the premiere of his film because she was in Auschwitz instead? (min 9:00 to 9:30)

  • food 4 thought

    His poor family, his poor lovely nieces. What an embarrassment he is! Can they cart him off to rehab and slam the door, so they can have a peaceful holiday? Jeezuz they must be so over him.

  • What a mess

    I can’t stand Macaroni, so I want them to marry, asap! LOL. What a nightmare he would be for anyone he’s involved with.
