Gerard Butler & Madalina Ghenea: Capri Hollywood Film Festival!

Gerard Butler is dashing while attending Day 5 of the 2012 Capri Hollywood Film Festival on Sunday (December 30) in Capri, Italy.

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.

    @Leftovers: for once she isn’t looking at the camera, but why is eyeing Ariel ?

  • Justme

    @beautiful: I agree. I think she will be the one to get hurt. She probably is a nice girl I won’t bash her I dont’ know her. The life she is living may be all she knows and when I think about when I was 24, hell I threw panties to the four corners of the earth and screwed out of both drawer legs. He is older so he has the advantage. Of course she is in love with him, he’s ahandsome guy, successful and she’s thinking he choose me.I don’t think he really meant to come out with her it sort of happened and once out it was what it was. I think he cares for her maybe even love (depending on what he calls love) and if he married her I don’t think it would last. He would get bord and her clingyness would gt to him.

    does anyone remember the story about the girl in Brazil who he made think he was going to marry her and then dumped her? Or the interview where he basically told a girl it wasn’t all that? He has an ego and a cruel streak that I don’t think has gone away so in all reality I will feel sorry for her. No one deserves to have their feelings played with like that.

    Madelina Ghea is hot hot hot!
    Freida pinto is an ugly untalented slum girl.
    People call her ‘beautiful’ out of pity. Gerrard would look great with an hot indian like PC or Aishwarya if he likes indians. I heard he likes indian chicks. But Freida is not beautiful or even talented. Madelina is hot!

  • my take

    @just mho: If his team was so smart his career wouldn’t be in the sad place it is, think about it some more.

  • my take

    @Huh oh: She sees the Oscar gold potential.

  • my take

    Besides smarter to date producers and directors than actors and Gerry’s producer days are over for now. Too bad she didn’t play her cards right with Haggis.

  • my take

    Happy New Year Y’All and let me leave this with you,
    GB and MG are as real as Kanye and Kim. Does that make you feel better?

  • celestial thoughts

    Not really, more worthless bimbos that lay on their back rather than earn anything.

  • celestial thoughts

    @Justme: That’s why deserves to have his heart broken, he’s done it to so many.

  • glaswegian

    who is not in Scotland this NYE, so I guess Butler did not show up again. Really I wish he just wouldn’t mention it each time he goes home for Xmas, it does get stale and people think he is being real.

  • Sassita

    @glaswegian: How can anyone take him seriously or believe what he says? All he does is contradict himself. He’s the biggest fakeout star of all time.

  • Alina

    Happy New Year, all! Be happy!

  • beautiful

    Happy New Year!!!!! Peace, Love and Happiness to Everyone!

  • celestial thoughts

    I’m starting to lean more to Rick Zano from Two Broke Girls. He’s younger hot and normal with a girl. He dated Haylie Duff for 4 years.

  • wow

    gerard really likes the angelina jolie type, thats he just ignored aniston’ advances when they were filming TBH. he doesnt like the fake blonde boring type like aniston. aniston even invited him to her private bday party in cabo, but he did not go for her. he had a big crush on angie and now he’ s got a look a like.

  • Can’tGetEnough

    It’s 2013 on the east coast JJers! Happy New Year to all of you!

  • Kristen

    Madalina looks like Angelina Jolie IN HER DREAMS! The ony thing they have in common are big lips.
    And if Gerard didn’t like fake he wouldn’t be “dating” MG.
    (By the way, Jennifer Aniston’s body is real and so is Jolie’s.)

  • Lord Love a Duck

    Well gals, a couple more hours for me and thought I would wish you all a blessed and healthy year ahead. Some of us have stuck together through thick and thin and others have left for different pastures. Doesn’t matter, in the end we are all here for the same reason. Some names I don’t recognize any more but the wish is still the same.
    I do wish Gerry a wonderful year ahead and all the joy this life affords as well as for you all.
    Shout out for Lolita, Cupcake, Angelsrock, Autumn, God Bless you all, and know I am missing a lot of gals, so forgive. I have posted this before but love it so much so will post it again as my new year wish for you all.

    I guess you missed this part of the article:
    “UPDATE 01/01/2013 : This story seems to be false.”

  • Karen

    @saints preserve us!:
    The source of the story was a media satire site.

  • Justine

    @Leftovers: He looks happy and she wore a lot of rings.

    She looks elated!

    He enjoys being youthful with her. None of his close friends are over 40. Capri in the New year is spectacular.

    It is a pathetic romance but it is one.

  • malory

    Madalina doesn’t look like Angelina Jolie. She does, however, look like Oksana Grigorieva.

  • Hogmanay

    Hogmanay, Gerry!
    Now you have your own “snake”! Enjoy it! She already has entangled you all! You have become a laughing stock, and your films flops! And now you can say “thanks ” this snake Madi. You cherished on his bosom a huge snake! Wake up, Gerard, don’t be a rag. She wiped her feet on you! I pity you!
    With a year of SNAKES you,Gerry!!!

    Happy and blessed New Year everyone♥♥

  • Phoenix

    Morning Y’all!

    Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy and Blessed New Year!

    2012 was not a banner year for our Scotsman, was it? Let’s hope things will be looking up for him this new year. I am really hoping “OHF” does well- I sincerely do. I also hope he can pull his balls together enough to get his professional career back on track, I’m not even gonna say anything about his personal life- we all know what needs to happen there.

    I am personally looking for better days this year, and I wish the same for everyone else!

    Have a great day!

  • celestial thoughts

    @Justine: That none of his friends are over speaks volumes. Shows what an idiot HE is. First of all, if true, means he can’t maintain a relationship with anyone longterm , not even mates, or pals from school, or growing up, IN ONE PLACE, for 25 years. It makes him look pathetic. Young is great, inept and unsocilized is another.

  • Sassita

    @malory: She looks beautiful. He’s been with her most of the past year so I’d say they are in love regardless of how much it bothers some on this board. Get used to it, she’s not going away anytime soon. It looks like he’s the one doing all the chasing. I bet he’s thrilled to have her on his arm.

  • http://JJ Ggfblx

    @Sassita: Sorry Sassita I would like nothing more than to see him look at someone and see the love .But I just don’t see it
    Word in Scotland is he is getting paid to be with her and that it ends soon.
    Happy New Year to all,lets hope it’s a guid un.

  • Sassita

    @DocP: That’s probably the smartest comment here. You nailed Gerry as he is.

  • too funny

    clearly a hoax site look at the other headlines

    Gerard Butler Highest Paid Actor
    Gerard Butler Dies at 43 – are they consulting psychics now?

  • @celestial thoughts

    What are you on about? He is surrounded by friends in Capri, including his girlfriend and best friend.

  • Lou

    Gerry has many friends from before he became an actor and he sees them every time he’s back in Scotland. I was told by a friend who used to work with him that when he was a lawyer in Edinburgh he had a long term girlfriend (some people apparently think they were actually married) but they split because of his drinking. Ever since, every woman he has dated he has compared to her and none can hold a candle to her in his estimation. He still loves her after all these years and that’s the reason he cannot commit to a relationship. He certainly deserves better than Madalina who is just a gold digger and apparently there is a web site from her days as a prostitute where you can see how much she charged for her services.

  • hit and run

    @@celestial thoughts: More like parasites. But that is just par for the course.

  • beautiful

    @Lou: he appears to be the type that would have many friends….he is too jolly and beautiful in heart.

    is the friend still available for him? it is nice to hear “beautiful decent” things that a person once had

  • Sassita

    @Lou: Oh FFS!

    Maddie wasn’t a prostitute or an escort. For the last time, some jerk in Norway stole Maddie’s pic and put it on a site “for escorts”.

    Stop the lie. It’s not true and your continued spouting of this lie makes you look dumber than dirt. You probably think that Earth is flat, too.

  • mho

    @Sassita: Amen. I will never believe Mads was ever a prostitute because I have a brain. Your explanation is the truth. Some people will believe any rotten thing about her. I’m no fan of hers, but that story is just absurd.

  • Sassita

    @mho: Exactly. I’m not a fan of hers either but I’m not a hater. I’m just sitting back waiting for them to break up because I don’t see him as the marrying kind.

  • me

    @mho: true. there’s a difference in not having the best morals and in being a paid hooker. She may have slept her way but she’s no paid fun for random johns.

  • FYI

    @Sassita: Actually the rumors had been circulating before that discovered. Many beautiful models and actresses make “income” on the side whether it is more of a sugar daddy type arrangement or just a pay for sex pay for companionship type deal. Many of these women live beyond their means, they get used to luxury and designer brands and when it is a long time between gigs it’s a way to supplement their income. Tara Reid is the poster girl for the first scenario. The younger and more attractive you are of course the better sugardaddy, younger maybe even handsome you will get and well on the flip side you take what you can get. In fact they say some very successful actresses have that dirty little secret in their closet and others are actually quite open about it.

  • beautiful

    @Ggfblx: …Ggfblx and Hogmanay. It is good to know the truth…i believe what your saying.

    someone had posted recently that every time gerry pledges something (as Hogmanay) she does something so to ruin his image and “make him out of a liar”…..i take it gerry did not show up (ooooh Lord…)

    it sounds like she “damage” him yesterday/last night (going against his pledge, his start of soul-searching

    if he did not show up and he is being paid. she 100% did that to humiliate him before his nativeland. this parasite is hitting on every level. Scotland please do not believe this…..please…..that is a shame…..there is some evil people in this world.

    if he was paid to help her…it seems she was paid in turn to hurt him….
    Gerry has been known to “help people”…taking kindness for weakness…

    Scotland pass this around to warn Gerry….this is the kind of parasite (being nice on the word…it is a New Year) especially if a contract is about to end…would try something as to drug him and try to get pregnant….this is a dirty dirty dirty person. Mel Gibson to Oksana

    You know what good friends and love does not fail….because Mel’s ex-wife (the mother of his many children) rose up for Mel….”my husband never behaved like that”….even after hurting her…that woman did such

    watch out Gerry – Scotland stay true to him….Gerry would have honored that committment….his leaving was done unpurpose…this parasite is trying to ruin him and i bet she is trying to get him back on unhealthy things to include drinking. i do not normally speak out like this but i have been around people so dirty as this

    Madalina will never be successful in Hollywood because she is well known now. She will be known as a Black Widow…hostess of parties (traps) at a young age. You sealed your fate young lady trying to hurt people and the Hollywood lights and many other lights are shining on you front and center for who you truly are a Black Widow. No Hollywood for you girl! Watch this Esme person most all too! I would sound this off all throughout Scotland…this type female makes females look bad of all ages (especially young girls/ladies)

    My take: If Gerry does not want this parasite (and i believe he does not) this is her way of rebelling. Scotland watch out – OHF is going to give Gerard his reign back on top (because he is a profound Action/Thriller actor….she is going to try and do something before that to give him a bad image….heads up!

    Why? I think there are actors scared in HW of Gerard because he is powerful…young European (to a certain degree) on American soil conquering….

    If you want to say the “word is” Scotland — Fact —— one of my friends participated on the set of OHF (not going to tell it) but she said Gerard (acting) roared some words….had everybody scared and running…nothing have even started exploding yet. He was that powerful! That is a powerful man….just the wrong people around him

  • FYI

    What is the difference – she sleeps with rich guys who pay all her expenses and buy her expensive gifts and give her career advantages – still a prostitute in the eyes of many especially if you wouldn’t sleep with that man otherwise. And if you are an actual fan of Butler hardly the kind of woman you want to see him in a longer term relationship with. Her MO is pretty clear. But if you want to see him sucked dry go ahead, cheer on.

  • beautiful

    @FYI: ….what?…..oooh goodness. here we go again. more surprises. i really am starting to like just plain normal living.

  • beautiful

    @FYI: true. @me and whoever supports this girl. i do not think people so are hating on her…as looks and a model (people don’t care these days about that – some)…it is what she is displaying/representing (Leo, Adrian, Gerard and who else).

    she is a pretty girl just dirty. her MO

    Yes – anyone who likes gerry and wants the best for him they are not going to lie on this post saying “oh what a beautiful relationship, he found class, etc.” when people are seeing what is happening before their very eyes……………btw…..has anyone seen gerry yet?

  • JC

    @beautiful: Agree with everything you said.

  • hmmmm

    What I see in these new photos is a man who´s finally tired of all the fakeness that surrounds him. For all visible, he is the only one to take a lot of punishment for a disaster like Playing For Keeps, that´s not easy for him. GB is an intelligent, passionate, phenomenal actor, just saw Machine Gun Preacher again…. Really sad.
    As for his “GF” trying so hard to cling on to him for the photos, how can it be that he seems to be almost apathetic with her at his side?…. I think for him it´s more like “business friends with benefits”, but okay it´s her home game in Italy and she´s all smiley.
    He, an opportunist in every condition of life (incl. love life) and master of PR games himself, finally played out?
    The dark side of it all will come for him, I´m afraid, it will be an eccentric breakout to soothe his nerves. Wish him all the best in 2013 and a Happy New Year to everybody!

  • Smoking again?
  • JC

    It makes me so sad looking at him now. I´ve certainly seen him happier than this. Wish he could shave off his beard so he at least wouldn´t look like 50. They look ridiculous together, she´s all smiles and he´s just…bleh.
