Gerard Butler: I Worked at Roger DuBois!

Gerard Butler is dashing while arriving for his appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday (March 14) in New York City.

Earlier in the day, the 43-year-old Scottish actor chatted with Matt Lauer on The Today Show to promote his new film Olympus Has Fallen.

“I went in and actually worked there one day and learned how they carve things down to like a thousandth of a millimeter as they carve out each piece. So when I look at the time, I appreciate it now,” Gerry shared about being a spokesperson for watch brand Roger DuBois.

The day before, Gerard attended an Olympus Has Fallen screening in the Big Apple.

    @lolita:

    Amen to that!!!!!!!!!!!

  • SouthernBelle

    Have to agree with 300 and Lolita. I was thrilled that the military was included in the promo of OHF. There were so many tweets, FB posts and Instagrams from Naval and Marine personnel who were happy to play host to and meet Antoine Fuqua and some of the cast. My hope is that the actors will come away awed by these young people who do so much. These people help to keep the world and its citizens safe, not just Americans. Gerry can love his native land and still have an appreciation for the land where he works and lives most of the time. I doubt that many would be offended by his visiting the base.

  • Where??

    @HG:
    Have you seen who Liberty Ross is dating? The guy is 60. Some women are just attracted to much older men. I’m not but to each his own apparently he wanted to spend the money on her. He propbly felt guilty after being caught in Dubai partying with a room full of women. that’s why I don’t like gifts from guys unless its a sentimental purchase. Its usually because they feel guilty about something. Not always but a lot of the time.

  • SouthernBelle

    Hey, Lolita — you may very well be right about smoking dulling GB’s taste. Smoking can do a real job on both taste and smell. Of course, I didn’t realize that until I quit.

    @300: I don’t know if you ever saw the movie Tora, Tora, Tora. There is a line in it that the Japanese commander said after the bombing of Pearl Harbor that all they succeeded in doing is awakening a sleeping giant. OHF is kinda like that, it brings out the spirit of America and how we will defend our country when attacked. This movie will make us think about how easy something like this could happen and prepare so it doesn’t. I appreciate with all my heart the men and woman who take up the job of protecting us.
    ______________
    Are you seriously suggesting GB and OHF will be responsible for making our defense of 9/11 like attacks better? Are you high? The Defense Department does not need a Hollywood over the top blockbuster to remind them to get ready to defend our nation.

    And furthermore, there is no real evidence that Admiral Yamamoto supposedly uttered anything of the sort after Pearl Harbor. What we do know about him is he was very friendly with the United States and warned the Emperor and other Generals (Shoguns really) that Japan could never win a war against the US.

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all. If you celebrate, be safe.

    That is pretty laughable to think that about OHF.

  • Maggie P.U.

    With reading what I have and being prior service Marine Corps (and CamPen MCB 1st MarDiv) was my main duty station, a former Marine wife and a dependent (Dad was a Career Marine, including 3 tours in Nam) I can definitely understand everyones opinion/s. With what Gerry said about our Military, that did hit a nerve. But at the same time does anyone remember (or know) Jane Fonda? Aka “Hanoi Jane”. She not only betrayed the American Military and its POWs but the American people by doing what she did and said……..

    If the service men and women are enjoying this “break” from their duties then let them have their well earned time off…. I am sure they already know (or they will) of what he said. But, it is by embedded creed: Respect, Pride and Honor. Consider the source….. They have more important things to focus on than a mere Scots who never like Jane wore boots nor stepped on combat ground….Proove the naysayers wrong! God Bless America and her Military. And to those who say their are no heros and do their country wrong….. tickets out of the country are on sale often!

    Peace.

  • Bewildered

    @Maggie P.U.: Maggie, did you read that Iraq comment from Gerry? I never heard this before and wonder if he did what context was it in. Just finding it so unbelievable that he would say this. Can you find it or give me a hint where to look for it? Thanks.

  • Suzanne Cummings

    @TeaCakes: That’s why I left the Gerry sites. I was so upset that he dissed our troops and frankly, he dissed the Brit troops with his comment since they were supporting ours in Iraq. IIRC, it was around the time 300 came out that he made the slur against our troops. Pretty sad, if you ask me. Who’d want to defend him? Not me.

  • Me Here

    Us Scots are gorgeous. Learn to love us.

  • Patriot

    Here’s a link to Gerry’s comments about Iraq that appeared in a March/April 2007 Esquire interview, entitled, “The Start of New Film ’300′ Disses Our Troops.” It should read, “The Star of New Film ….. .”

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1797267/posts

    I’m all for giving anything to our troops, even a preshowing of a movie, and I’m glad they were pleased to meet the cast. As for GB, he’s just another aszhle celeb who is paid too much for doing a subpar job.

    As far as his supporting Eric Garzetti in the LA mayor’s race. Ariel Vromen had long been scheduled to speak and probably tried to get GB some face time. Gerry didn’t show.

  • Totally Useless Information

    I do remember a video from the 300 Comic Con where GB made a remark about the 300 against the big army and pointing to the camera he said to think about that. Or something similar. I got the distinct impression he was comparing the US to the big army or the Persians. It was not during the panel but before or after when he was giving interviews. That video disappeared and I’ve never seen it since nor talked to anyone who did see it.

  • here we go

    Leonado Dicaprio never been bf romanian prostitute. Just funny. Gerard Butler s so gay as Alan. He disguises himself about it.

  • insomnia

    Just wanna say, MG is a very lucky girl, and GB is f’in gorgeous, and I hope he does whatever makes him happy for his next role. But I’m glad he’s taking a break (ish) or whatever, cuz it seems he needs to find some peace. Fame seems like it’s been a real b*tch to him lately (ahem, well, the “fans” in some places anyway…). Go home (letterman interview reference here) and sleep/rest/meditate/escape until you’ve gotten your spark/spirit back is probably what I’d advise him. He deserves to be happy, and I hope he has real love with a woman soon, if he doesn’t now. Why do I care about this stranger?? I have no idea, but I enjoy his movies, (had to see all of them listed on imdb after seeing the Phantom!) and I hope he’s as healthy and loved and happy as possible. I know, I know, add nausea and all that, but I don’t care, I’m a nice person. Maybe cuz I’m a scorpio too, but I “get” that personality in a way, ha, I dunno wtf that means, but whatever. Can’t wait for OHF! (big screen Gerry time! yay!) Who cares about the hype/numbers, just looks like a fun thrill ride, although he’s waaay more talented than that, but I’ll be there 5th row back, dead center on friday! :)

    *exits wondering why I’m here*

    ….oh yeah, cuz I hate all the hate here..but why do I care?…hmmm, must stop wasting time, must sleep….

  • Gerard Butler’s Career

    How many women HAD this man BEFORE Madalina???
    So many it’s a joke. And he admitted banging that Z-Lister, Brandi (who now brags that she feels validated – a loser herself) and not even knowing her last name or caring about who she was or what she was ‘carrying.’
    Such a disgrace. he is so lame no wonder he is Hollywood’s ‘Hunkiest (fat slob of a) Has-Been.’

    @Patriot
    Well, thank you for posting that. I’m kind of speechless and really appalled.
    I didn’t agree with the decision to invade Iraq, but I never lost my love and respect for the brave troops who put themselves in harm’s way when their country called. I was overwhelmed by many stories of heroism from our troops. Very early in the Iraq war, I read an article about a young American soldier – only 19 years old – who threw his body on top of a grenade to save the lives of his fellow soldiers. He died, and because he died, everyone else lived. This very young man chose to die to save the lives of others. If he’s not a hero, I don’t know who the hell is.
    .
    @Totally Useless Information
    I believe you …. primarily because he said that very thing in the quote Patriot just posted. He thought the Persians in 300 were the U.S.

  • JS

    Most people in the UK felt the same way about the Iraq war and there was constant criticism about it in the media and from politicians. That doesn’t mean that people didn’t support the troops and Gerry was the same as everyone else, didn’t agree with the war but he never said anything against the troops. When he said there were no heroes, that’s how most people in the UK felt because the only reason the country was invaded was because it has oil. If like Zimbabwe it had no oil it would never have been invaded. I had two cousins and a brother in law in Iraq and they have always said that we should never have been there and agree there were no heroes. There can never be heroes in an unjust war.

  • Just a thought

    @Eric:

    So what does the video prove? If she hadn’t been proved to be a compulsive liar people might have believed it, but with her track record anything she says is just going to be taken with a pinch of salt. Once a liar, always a liar!

  • Good girl

    @GerardButler twitted 2h ago
    Visited the San Diego Navy Base and the Marines today. AMAZING!
    Made me proud to be an American!

  • Bitter Tea
  • he’s'proudtobeamerican’?

    @JS: spot on. The British also have far less admiration or respect for American justice too after guatanamo bay. Land of opportunity? Land of the free? Only if your finances, face and political views fit. There are other countries that enjoy free speech, lifestyle and educational opportunity, you know. And who didn’t operate racial segregation less than a lifetime ago whilst claiming to do so.
    I’m surprised Gerry made such a Twitter comment. He really will say anything for the money, won’t he! Insincere and manipulative. The USA is welcome to him.

  • he’s'proudtobeamerican’?

    Wait ’til the Scottish press get hold of this!

  • Just a thought

    @Eric:

    Also meant to say that just because she has money of her own doesn’t mean she will spend it, especially when she’s got a mug to buy things for her.

  • Good girl

    @he’s’proudtobeamerican’?: when he was promoting PFK , his goal for 2013 was to grow up and make afamily and having kids. Now he’s promoting OHF so he’s not ready to settle down , grow up, make family, having kids. Now he’s proud to be anAmerican! I don’t know if he become an american or not because i’m not american & have no idea have things happened in USA but why now?
    Just because he promoting amovie so he have the wright to change he’s wards! I wonder what he’s next goal gonna be when he promote the next movie? Well he should be proud.. America gave him every thing he dreamed about & he should find adecent american girl to be with and made the American fans proud of him.

    JJ! It’s time to start a .NEW THREAD

  • he’s'proudtobeamerican’?

    @Good girl: sadly I don’t think Gerry will ever get what he dreams of. He doesn’t seem to know what that is from one day to another!
    So restless, homeless, identity less. One year its chopra, another its spiritulism in Iceland, or thailand, or evangelism, or catholicism, or marriage , or kids, or super fitness, or doughnuts, or smoking,or hypnotism, or drugs, or proud Scot, or proud American, or working hard, or resting (although those two seem to be the same thing!!), reformed trouble maker, hardened party boy. His story changes like the wind to get the money. He thinks its charm. I think its fakery.

  • Bewildered

    How very pathetic. How many times does he have to say how grateful he is to be where he is and that he IS living his dream.
    You are so miserable in your own lives, you can’t stand to see someone embracing life with gusto. It is his life, he is living it as he sees fit.
    BTW, I do believe that article was bogus. I looked at the archives of Esquire and no articel even close, so before you all go off half cocked, maybe you better make sure your spiteful rumors are well founded. The reason you can’t find it is because it wasn’t there. Disgusted .
    He made a lot of sailors and Marines happy tonight, Shame you can’t share the joyful time but always looking for the worst.

  • Absolutely

    @bewildered that’s the way it is. This man makes EVERYONE that he meets happy wherever he goes. There is not a single “I’ve just met Gerard Butler and he’s an absolute a**hole” comment out there. Think about that

  • he’s'proudtobeamerican’?

    @Bewildered: I’m sure most of them were intelligent enough to realise they werejust part of a publicity stunt, and not part of any ongoing support from Gerry. Unless he makes another forces themed film that needs some free press, that is.
    It’s not a case of being miserable , unhappy in our own lives, or jealous.. It’s called realism. I personally couldn’t be paid to live so superficially.

  • he’s'proudtobeamerican’?

    @Absolutely: and that’s how he’s done in business too, telling them what they want to hear to get ahead . But it all seems to have backfired now that he can’t get work , even self produced, anywhere in HW? They’ve seen through him, in time. Fans and those meeting him for a few minutes get the charm because it fans his ego. Nothing more.

  • Lisa

    The only way you can say you’re American is if you’re a citizen. Gerard Butler must have become a U.S. citizen. I wonder what the Brits will make of this?

  • HeGrewUpLastNight

    @JS: Thanks for clarifying. It is simply obvious what he meant. In addition, it could probably mean there was the losing of lives in an unjust war. No heroes….could mean someone was taken from their family forever “because of an unjust war.”

    UK people support that statement….our wordings and interpretations may be different….but I believe all of us want peace.

    There is enough hate going on that we need to go away….let us not add fuel to the fire.

    I see their visit as a respectful gesture…if we are going to make such a movie…lets give respect to those of everyday. I truly like these guys and i say it with deepness….they were showing respect…not just capitalizing and moving on…..those gentleman did the honorable thing

    It was a respectful and honorable gesture. Its HW acknowledging the people who are most forgotten and protect us everyday. That man gets criticized but times ago, i remember people on this board saying one of the many things he did that touched many was “acknowledging the common man” some actors see themselves above that….acknowledging the common. It was also mentioned how his movies send a message, MGP was the same way. I like this one OHF as it says to stand up and fight for your country fir whatever you believe in.

    I do not know why so many are programmed to suck on the negative when there is absolute positives in something.

  • Lisa

    @JS:
    All those who serve and die for their country are heroes. Shame on you.

  • he’s'proudtobeamerican’?

    @Lisa: well I doubt the Scots will welcome him back for another premiere! Many of them already think he’s a tit.

  • Lisa

    I don’t know one single veteran who doesn’t consider the fallen to be heroes. It’s disgusting what some of you phannies will say to excuse Butler’s disrespect and ignorance.

  • he’s'proudtobeamerican’?

    @he’s’proudtobeamerican’?: interesting censorship jj. I didn’t put in the asterisks.

  • HeGrewUpLastNight

    The fallen are heroes. Its not excusing, it is another’s interpretation of how it affected families. I was initially taken by it but maturely i looked at…well maybe he is looking at it from a child, father, mother, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin, husband, wife, grandparent or friend lost.

    No ones excusing but do not leave out ones possible interpretation.

  • Lisa

    Gerry was misunderstood. Gerry was just joking. It’s a British thing. It’s a male thing. On and on and on go the excuses.

  • leslie balfour

    Gerard acts like a knob at times.cannae wait to hear what the Scottish press have to say about his being an american now. many weegies already think he’s a dobber

  • leslie balfour

    kn/ob is not an acceptable word here

  • you know what?????????

    THERE ARE NO HEROES IN ANY WAR!!!!!! BECAUSE wars are created by the AMERICAN government for RESOURCES and ONLY RESOURCES from the targeted country! More CIVILIANS had died in the Iraqi and Afghanistan wars than soldiers!! Get an education you gun hoes even Spain is honest enough to be ashamed of their history! You people are SOOOOO f#kn brain washed no wonder you are the laughing stock of the world!!!!!

  • you know what?????????

    It is one thing to DEFEND your country and it is a completely DIFFERENT thing to totally destroy another country for GREED

  • Lefty loser

    @you know what?????????: Thumbs down! I suppose sending good vibes into the universe will stop all the madness.

  • It seems to me

    @he’s’proudtobeamerican’?:

    Realism? You seem to write in a cynicism vein more than anything else. Poor you.
