Antoine chatted with THR at the festival to defend Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino from comments made by Spike Lee saying that the film was “disrespectful” to black people.

“That’s just not the way you do things,” Antoine shared. “If you disagree with the way a colleague did something, call him up, invite him out for a coffee, talk about it. But don’t do it publicly.”

In case you missed it, Gerard recently made the list for‘s top 50 most popular celebs of 2012.

    Most fans are not disappointed he has a girlfriend.

    The problem is who he has selected to present to the world(finally!!) as his girlfriend.

    Most of his fans want him to settle down and have a steady girl.

    His girlfriend has pissed off fans that have followed him for years & years.

    Madalina is looking radiant. Her smile is one of the most beautiful. It’s obvious they are in love. They are together as much as humanly possible because they want to be. Naysayers, you asked for proof and you’ve gotten it in spades the past months. God Bless them both and everyone else reading. Happy New Year!

  • Karen

    An old fashioned Italian beauty? LMAO!
    Madalina is Romanian and half her body is made out if silicone.

  • http://JJ Ggfblx

    These photos give the opposite of love.
    He hasn’t seen her for nearly a week and you can tell he is not happy that she is clinging to him.
    Look at his photos with others there ,he is smiling and happy.
    With her you can tell he wants to shake her off.
    He is embarrassed ,no I give it a few weeks then he will drop her.
    Come on guys not one of these photos say “Love”
    I am also hoping he goes back to Scotland and spends New Year with family.
    Then looks in 2013 for the one.

  • Sion

    Well I was expected him to settle down with somebody sincere like Jennifer Aniston the same age and stuff but sometimes people click to young women and that’s just not right. Team Aniston!

  • @ggfblx

    hmmm..i see love coming from her. is that the love you don’t see?
    or is it that you don’t see love coming from gb?
    which is it?
    if you say you don’t see any from her i’m gonna write you off as a delusional hater and opportunistic liar.

  • http://JJ Ggfblx

    @@ggfblx: you can write me off whatever way you want.
    But no,I think she has love for him but honestly and it’s my opinion on photos I really don’t see it from him.

  • @ggfblx

    thank you for being fair
    i don’t see it from him either

  • Kali Orexi

    He looks very tired and should stop colouring his hair, I like it when it shows some grey. Love his smile

  • bystander

    Happy New Year everyone!

    These two both look happy enough to me, but considering the vacuous party, freebie, hotel, airport , no ‘work’, PR driven, let’s escape the family egotistic lifestyle they lead, I hold out much less hope now that this is a lifechanging relationship for Gerry. Shame because he needs something or someone to shake him out of this shallow downwards rut he lives in.

    Fingers crossed and best wishes all.

  • Leo

    You have to place his atitude in the event context, we were’nt there to hear why he’s laughing so hard in the other pics and why he’s serious in the ones with the girlfriend but sure enough she would’nt be there without his invitation!!! YES she really is STUNNING and Feminine too! Love the pics from Kari Orexi

  • carrie

    i didn’t know Butler was so popular (so many comentaries)

  • Viewfrom

    well done Gerry – just the sort of family values pics we need on the launch eve of your latest romcom. Family friendly posing with MG jsut to cement the wholesome content of your movie. Now, the UK and European distributors have all the fun of selling your movie. Well, you are already on to the next one – punting around for business on OHF. Lets hope that that is better than this one.

  • Derwisch

    @Kali Orexi:
    “He looks very tired and should stop colouring his hair, I like it when it shows some grey.”


  • blake

    I think OHF is gonna flop big time just like his last couple of movies.GB and his fans shouldn’t get their hopes high.and as for his personal life , he can go globe trotting with MG as much as he wants nobody cares because in the end he’s gonna be 4gotten.A year or 2 or 3 down the road they’re gonna post his pic on some gossip site with a headline like
    “What happened to Gerard Butler?”. atelast thats what I think.

  • Kali Orexi

    @Derwisch: Sorry, you’ve lost me here. What do you mean with full ack?

  • Eye Roll

    She’s cozying up to him quite a bit…seems like she wants to be sure to get in the shot. He’s smiling in the other photos but not with her.

    Word is that fans observed them at the Naples port in the dead of night and they were definitely NOT lovey-dovey.. He had arrived from London, she had flown in from Milan. Two cars met them at the airport . At the Naples port she walked far ahead of the group and carried her own luggage and he trailed behind the group with two assistants and was in no hurry to join up with her on the boat to Capri.

    However, once the photogs were there…

    I wish Gerard was above all of this fakery.

  • WTF

    @Eye Roll: What’s going on here? Why do you think they’re faking a relationship?

  • Alina

    @WTF: It’s fake, I also know it … Are you still in doubt?

  • Ultanon

    Who thinks they are faking a relationship? They look like a normal happy couple. She’s beautiful.

  • Alina

    @Ultanon: Beauty-loose concept! Beautiful when the real beauty, not silicone, bought for $ $ $ $.Ugh!

  • Eye Roll

    Gerard seeks a new image as stable, bankable person and Madalina needs a stepping stone. He does not even speak her name in interviews.

  • Terrible truth

    Strange poses on this photos and Gerry looks unhappy, no sparkle in his eyes. This is sad end of the year.

  • Terrible truth

    I meant Gerry looks sad on the photos with a woman.

  • Terrible truth

    Best wishes for a New Year to all!

  • Leo

    Alina you can put as much silicone as you like it would not change the structure of the body, the height, the eyes and the expression or the smile. Then you can put silicone on all women out there they are still not going to look like Madalina!!!!
    You just don’t like her and you have hard feelings here so why don’t you call her and tell her your feeling or even you could call him and tell him what to do about it. Uf these ugly Hollywood silicon lady ….they are all are going after the wrong man or the other way.

  • AA

    Considering the dm photos,in some you can see MGs right hand,could this be an engagementring? I hope not,cause 8 months of dating is a bit short for deciding to get married.

  • Untamable Shrew

    @sad: Agree with post 14.Sigh….

  • Untamable Shrew

    @DocP: Post 19.I agree with you as well,”He looks in love with himself”.She on the other hand looks smitten.Maybe she’s playing for the cameras.

  • AA

    @Untamable Shrew: Maybe she is just in love.

  • Untamable Shrew

    @AA: Maybe,time will tell.

  • Derwisch

    @Kali Orexi:

    “full ack” or “fullack” is the abbreviated version of full acknoledgement. It means, I totally agree with your opinion.

  • Untamable Shrew

    Oh well about Gerry’s love life anymore.With all the flops he’s doing,his personal life seemed more interesting.But that is predictable as well.Old man with young girl.Young girl gets break into movies.Old man gets really old,young girl leaves old man and moves on to greener pastures.Old man stars on VH1 where are they now.

  • Kali Orexi

    @Derwisch: thanks Derwisch, I’d never heard of it (English second language) .

  • Funny as He!l

    @Untamable Shrew:
    She very well could be in love, she’s young and impressionable and the fact is Gerry can be charming when he wants to be. I’m sure he doesn’t treat her poorly. It’s only after he starts lying to her that we will see how “in love” she will still be. Gerry just doesn’t strike meas a sincere guy, but time will tell.

    “There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.” – Buddha
    –If GB is seeking spiritualism in 2013 I hope he succeeds.

  • DocP

    @Untamable Shrew:
    everytime i see a picture og him, or read an article. he comes off as being full of himself, he’s so much into status and name dropping that I can’t even watch his interviews anymore. Its to bad because he use to be a nice guy at least thats the way he came off, now its jus about being “a big movie star”. I guess another one bites the dust:(

  • my take

    @AA: She gets paid to wear jewellry to events, rings are just part of it. This is just another promotional opportunity for the opportunist. The only way GB is going to marry this one is if she has so much blackmail material on him he doesn’t have the balls to call her bluff. Funny how Kanye and Gerry are sharing the same expressions on their faces lately. Gerry and Kanye grow a pair and run. The truth is better than this.

  • dargabriel

    Gerard looks miserable, eating too much of the kitty is not good for the butler, those essence to him are poison, he ignores karma and his spiritual quest, he will falter,tsk,tsk. he looks sickly, be prepared, he will answer alot for his ignorance. Butler looks more pulled then I’ve ever seen, no glow what so ever, wrong one butler and you know this. Good luck anyways. Happy day to all and hi connie I hope all is great with you. No need for challenges, besides remember the wonderful phone convo we had. Keep the peace oh and I hope your classes are going great. And what you saw in my eyes, your words, i see peace in your eyes and someting you said you saw you couldn’t explain but you said peace, I thank you for that. Also wondering did you hook up with the man I describes. Tall lighter hair, good looking, a special attraction. Take care. Love,dar

  • Seriously

    They are spending every minute they can together; it is obviously the real thing. They look wonderful together. Personally, I feel very sweet vibes with Madalina.

  • my take

    @Seriously: Ooh is she aiming them right at you? PMSL. Sweet as a viper in for the kill.

  • Yikes

    @Seriously: Then you must be the only one on the planet feeling “sweet” vibes, lol. You must be very naive.

  • hahahahaha

    I’m pretty sure her “vibes” could cut through the lime scale in my bathroom.

  • Me so good

    @my take:

    I do not think she is paid for wearing jewelry at the events, she is too small fish for this.

  • DoRaMe

    Two interpretations. He is the type of man that can take for granted and demand a lot from the ones he loves. hence, she walking ahead of him often, flying to his beckon call, or he is not showing affection in photos but gleeful with others. High maintenance and rich men do that very often.

    Or he has to show some stability while she wants HW press. They take care of their needs as a business arrangement. Emotions can come into play even with that arrangement.

  • pair

    #88: agree with last two sentences!

  • Me so good

    She has not style:

    1/ the coat does not fit the style of the dress, the dress is feminine and the coat is manlike.
    2/ the shoes…, oh God, why does she wear open shoes like that? No style at all.

    I am not evil or whatever, I just have good taste and knowlegeabe in the fashion.

    I like this guy Ariel Vromen., he is good for Gerry. I have seen them together somewhere before. Maybe he is Gerry’s twinflame :)))

    Happy New Year, dear JJ readers and writers!

  • Maggie P.U.

    @89….I remember the phon con Dar, all 3 of us had. How my friend also called you a liar and a fraud. Just like they do on this board and done to Cleo. And also how you prided yourself using Tarot and the Quija. And noagain all your predictions were off/lies then also. My BF is dark haired, blue eyes. And I never said peace to you at anytime….I warned you not to dable in what you were and still are. My friend also challenged you, which would explain much of what is happening to u now. She told you you being a hypocrite and doing God as you have will catch up with you. And it is.

    One minute you are talking the light crap and the next lying, throwing out predictions and threatening/name calling because they called it as they see it also. A spade. In this case Dar, you are the Black Widow….You are something that needs serious help. And pretending to be something you are not and then pulling the crap you have is pretty much enough proof. So, I suggest you back off, again your immaturity is showing….and your nostrils definitely are flaring. I saw nothing in your eyes, because it was a phoncon you dolt…… but I am sure like you have said they are brown it is because you are full of yourself. What I did see was a poor shell of a human being who though says at times has a happy life is not really. That her lifes true mission os to make others miserable. Take your lies and your BS back to the outhouse where you found it. And also, again, calling me by my first name agaain shows the type of person you are…..immature and empty.
    I cant put your name out because it includes a jail house #. Now, keep bringing on your rendition. I called you a liar and hypocrite then and I am now. My friend called you worse. Sugar coat to others, not me.



  • DocP

    Guys wise up about this man , he treats woman like they are objects. He doesn’t have respect for woman he dates and sleeps with. That’s why he doesn’t look all smitten and happy. He will be nice to his fans because he’s not stupid he knows they are his bread and butter, but don’t kid yourself into thinking he’s a “catch”. He will make every woman he sleeps with miserable in the end. Two words…… BAD NEWS!!!!!

  • Hello

    @DocP: I am not sure what your problem is with gb. You admitted that you don’t know anything about him and are new to the fan base. You were once asked if you ever even saw any of his movies. I rememer when you first came on board. Lots of positive things to say and you seem to be quite the bitter person now. Perhaps that was your way to get in the good graces of the posters. Now I find you tiresome, insulting with anyone who doesn’t agree with you.
    You have no idea how he treats women. You see what the tabloids put out and don’t have a clue who he has slept with or what goes on behind closed doors any more than I do.
    Of course he comes across as being full of himself. He is self deprecating, sweet and funny when he does it. He is an actor and no doubt self conscious in interview.
    The technique is often used to balance the audience judgment on a performer, after exhibiting conspicuous displays of arrogance.
    Professionals in any given field will also either avoid typical jargon and use lay terms to be understood and therefore appreciated by the masses.
    Such humour is often stereotypically associated with people from the United Kingdom.
    If anyone knows his own faults it is gb and has spoken many times about it. Of course if you don’t read the interviews, that might be another reason why you don’t know what the heck you are talking about.
    gb is also a Scotsman and in the end will do what he bloody well pleases and if you are a fan, will forgive him his openess and foibles. Personally those shortcomings make him more endearing.
