    @C.A: The Bounty Hunter was where I first noticed him while channel surfing on a rainy day. I know, right?! Atrocious film, but he really caught my eye. LAC is good, MGP is his best in my opinion. Dear Frankie was such a praise-worthy story. The Jury showed his early compassion for acting. My husband brought home 300 the day it came out on DVD and I ended up sleeping through the entire thing. I never even saw him. I had to dig out that copy when I started to crush on, oh, I mean, follow him. LOL! I am a person who doesn’t mix business and personal. I do not care what he does in real life and with whom, unless he exhibits violence against humans. There’s no excuse for that anytime. I found him endearing and then happened upon JJ’s GB threads and this is where I catch up on him when I have time. (waiting on Mr. Appliance today). Wishing big success for OHF! Take care, CA

    @Ducky – hello you! He seemed especially joyful last night. Thanks for the link. Best to you always!

  • Gerryfan

    Gerry is good soul and would find it very hard to dump someone but he knows MG has only been with him for what she could get. He has finally found out what his mother told him at Christmas, she’s bad news. And so, because he can’t find it in his heart to dump her, he’s showing her that he doesn’t care for her any more and that his family is more important to him than she is. By doing this he knows that she’ll leave and go elsewhere. And good riddance to her.

  • GFW

    @Lord Love a Duck:
    That’s darling of him fitting in one or two after his “cut off” by his guard. Sweet, sweet man.
    -
    Gorgeous suit of spectacular quality and fit! The excitement vibe could be felt anyone watching. Must feel great making someone’s day like that! Make someone smile by showing his gratitude by giving back!
    -
    Wonder if his ‘pack’ of regulars showed up? Moria, et.al.?
    ~K

  • GFW

    Ashley won’t be single for long! Damn, she’s beautiful. Even Gerry was wow’d by her appeal in such a power dress yet still delicate made feminine by its color.

  • Joie de Vivre

    Hey GFW, curious what you thought of PFK?

  • GFW

    If I had my way he would have turned down Howard Stern flat out with a no. Think he did it for the demographics, the range feeling he needed to step up his promo tour this time. And with the proper backing this will be the hit all the others should have been too!
    ~K

  • GFW

    @Joie de Vivre:
    I’ll type something up at lunch? Liked it enough though cringed at the women being out-right stereotypes. I hear it was heavily edited which cut into the story a bit. He looked good as I have a fondness for the longer hair.
    -
    Had chemistry with Noah, who shows up in Safe Haven. Connected with Jessica and thought the story relevant today especially. Her guy was a mouse but that’s what she thought she wanted, the opposite of him. His u-turning at the end was well done by him. His acting was terrific, as always. Dennis was way over-the-top as was Uma and Catherine too.
    -
    Loved the question, “Do you ever wonder what would have happened if I hadn’t mucked it all up?”
    -
    More later…
    ~K
    whose biggest complaint was I don’t think the directer ever stepped foot in Northern Virginia as we have no huge lakes or boathouses and cares are required, for the most part, to display license plates… details matter!

  • Lord Love a Duck

    Hi Joie and GFW, I loved that video, esp. when the girl said it was her birthday. How special is he.
    Heard he sent 10 bouquet of flowers to his mum for her birthday in that reddit thingy. I have no idea what that is but want to find out.
    I am such a stick in the mud and holding out for him to do Burns, still, yet and even. Would settle for a period film but think he might be tied down to action films for a while. Seems that’s what everyone wants to see him in. Still adore his passion in POTO.
    Well Joie have fun waiting for Mr. Appliance. Did they give you a 4 hr. window? Hate that lol. Ducky

  • Toti

    If he really cared for her & loved her he wouldn’t act like an idiot when he was on Howard if that was my bf i would dump him Howard was disrespectful and that amount of hate MG gets on the Internet if he cared he wouldve addressed it saying like hope his fans can support him etc hes said or done nothing to raise her respect or make her likeable & I think that’s y he has had relationship probs in past I don’t think he would support his woman & defend her it’s all about him! He thinks prob anyone should be just grateful to be with him! That says a lot about a man! And madalina darling no good writing quotes about your reputation, image is everything and you will get labeled on your actions if you want to be taken seriously then act upon what you say rather than contradicting yourself all the time

  • http://www.jj.com Clamsie

    @Lord Love a Duck: Burns is never going to be. He said they couldn’t raise enough money for it and the whole project fell apart a few years ago. It’s the only kind of movie I’d like to see him doing. Gerry is also too old to play the role of Rabbie.

  • C.A

    @Joie de Vivre: Thanks Joie …. so new I won’t try … better read all the comments in here and watch the FB page lol
    Best film must be Law Abiding Citizen and The Ugly Truth … Worst Bountyhunter …. But only seen recent ones begining with Tombraider(did not even know it was GB) Thanks for asking :)

  • Can I just ask?

    Diana, tell us, what happened to MG last night? Gerry told you that she would be there but she wasn’t. Don’t tell me the guy has been lying to you. I would never talk to him again as he’s obviously just trying to make a fool of you. Don’t have anything more to do with him and if he asks you to dinner again then just refuse, or better still, ask the doctor for stronger medication.

  • Joie de Vivre

    @GFW: LOL! I laughed so hard at the restaurant scene where they are eating crabs. Not quite how it’s done, but creative license wins out. I agree it wasn’t Dennis Quaid’s best performance. He was so good in Something to Talk About. I’m so shallow in this way: I enjoyed looking at him and listening to his accent. Eye and ear candy is all I got! LOL! The story was so cliche and I did not care for the its depiction of women. My husband bought it for me (so sweet) but I’ll bet it sits in the DVD rack for a long, long time. Once was enough for me.

  • Bwahahahaha

    @Can I just ask?
    I hope your post is a joke, because anyone that believed what that troll Diane was saying is a complete idiot. Diane is a psycho troll who gets off on riling up the phannies. Do you really think an “insider” of any sort would post real information on here? LOL

  • Greta

    @Toti:

    He doesn’t care for her and she doesn’t care for her. The whole relationship is just a stunt and unfortunately for Gerard he found out it was a very expensive stunt as she was bleeding him dry. She just uses people for her own ends and just saw GB as a walking credit card. My cousin works in a top London store and GB and MG were in one day last year and he spent hundreds on her and she still wanted more. In the end GB just walked out of the store and she wasn’t happy.

  • Belle de Jour

  • Can I just ask?

    @Bwahahahaha:

    Yes it is a joke. I’m daft but I’m not that daft as to believe her stories.

    -
    In the Phantom of the Opera he acted as if his life depended on it. Not only that but he knew he was a risk and challenged himself. Editing was thief there too. It also was like watching a long MTV video. I think that’s how I first described it. The magical dress change by her. The raising of the chandelier.
    -
    He might not be tied down to action films exclusively. Just feel many like to see their guy in these types of ‘kick ass’ films who emit a certain masculine on-film appeal. Off-film he shows (to me) no signs of a he-man, just the opposite really. It’s his sensitive side or vulnerable appeal I’m drawn to. A little of both would be fun.
    -
    Just feel he’s kind of in a (possibly) too much too late with tinge of resentment or bitter taste in his mouth after his last for films should have been promoted better? An exasperation of sorts? Hope not. His talent isn’t his. It’s his gift. But let’s take a wait and see stance. A break might do his soul good. Then again someone could make him an offer he can’t refuse and he’d start working next month for all we know!
    -
    But the best part is folks will take a loot at his film history (action) and buy or rent Coriolanus, GAMER, Machine Gun Preacher and Chasing Mavericks all ‘action’ packed. Win-win!

    @Can I just ask?:

    Perhaps she’s been sectioned and is under lock and key.

  • Joie de Vivre

    @C.A: It’s fun talking about the filmography. Of course it’s all personal opinion, but there are some good ones and some lame ones. Mrs. Brown was good, imo, The Game of Their Lives was good. Of course he puts the rock and roll into the Phantom’s voice. I personally really liked Beowulf and Grendel and Attila. P.S. I Love You was good but Holly wore on me, she was so whiny and acquisitive. Anyway, fandom here is a roller coaster ride sometimes. Enjoy exploring, CA!

  • GFW

    @Joie de Vivre:
    I know. They didn’t visit Maryland either. LOL I agree overall only I could see it again. The Bounty Hunter was a once is enough film for me even though I loved the story. Seeing Gerry a slob was hard on the eyes. Kind of wished it was reversed, know what I mean?

I need Mike Banning to come and save me!!! Ah, my hero….LOL! Take care, Ducks! Always good to catch you here. (Btw, JJ said I was posting too quickly and to slow down and that post diappeared).

    Holly was so into herself and most likely was spoiled and married too young to know how good she had it. That “tiny” apartment was incredible.

    And don’t forget RockNRolla! Dynamite film. Dark, edgy, funny, interesting.

  • Joie de Vivre

    Since being a fan I have wanted him to play Burns. Unfortunately, I’m thinking that ship may have sailed for him. Burns died at 37 yrs old. I can see James McAvoy doing that bit. Did I just refer to Butler as being too old for a role….shame…LOL! As a history buff, I would love to see someone do a film about the Battle of Stamford Bridge between the English and the Vikings (c. 1066). I think it’s a great story. The Swordsman who floats under the bridge and takes out a Viking with an axe to save the English….I think his name was Mike Banning…LOL! I was there once and had a meal and a few pints in the pub there called (appropriately) The Swordsman.

  • Joie de Vivre

    @GFW: Oh how could I forget One-Two! Another great performance, C.A. His publicist said at the time that the character was like a mirror of Butler. She said it was like watching Butler up there for two hours.

    Want to go down memory lane with the deleted scene from Dear Frankie?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adasGJQr7zQ

  • canthelpbutthink

    @Sharpen Your Claws Hags: Bite me you trained monkey….
    Not many people hate her, but many think she’s stupid, shallow, insecure, narcissistic, etc.
    I’m amongst people who don’t hate her, I simply stated my opinion of her- and I don’t hate stupid people… I don’t hate anyone… There are so many different emotions between love and hate, but being a trained monkey that you are, you wouldn’t know…

  • GFW

    @Joie de Vivre:
    I’d heard that too. That it was the realist him to date on film. Then we need to ask ourselves, myself included, why do we get shocked at some of the stuff he says in interviews? He’s just being him. And we all know we can’t stop being somebody. I’m sure his mom winces and cringes at times but all-in-all he’s harmless. It is just (maybe) here in the prudes rule America our culture is more restrictive of being yourself than over there where they don’t blink? Make sense? Acceptance and understanding (of him) is vital in his being loved, liked.
    -
    That said, I do recall years ago he lost sleep and worried about his image (public one) to a point of losing sleep. It seems he took the (extreme) opposite approach a few years later and that hasn’t fared well. Could he be reconsidering a return to a more private, stealthy Gerry?
    ~K
    who wrote about his humor nailing it 100% in my first story so I’m not the prude I just concern myself for him… hard to explain…

  • God Bless yoou all!

    Know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind. —1 Chronicles 28:9

    *
    Remember, God can be known. He is a Person, not a logical or theological concept. He thinks, wills, enjoys, feels, loves, and desires as any person does. A. W. Tozer writes, “He is a person and can be known in increasing degrees of intimacy as we prepare our hearts for the wonder of it.” Ah, there’s the rub: We must “prepare our hearts.”

    The Lord is not playing hard to know; those who want to know Him can. He will not foist His love on us, but He does wait patiently, for He wants to be known by you. Knowing Him is the first thing in life.

    He walks with me, and He talks with me,
    And He tells me I am His own;
    And the joys we share as we tarry there
    None other has ever known. —C. Austin Miles
    The thought of God staggers the mind but to know Him satisfies the heart.

  • canthelpbutthink

    This between him and her and both promoting them selves – it’s becoming a circus…
    Someone wrote on her page how she unliked his page and now she is a free woman and she can be with whom ever she wants..a circus nothing else.. If this is one more PR stunt for his movie and it’s very possible it is, along with visiting the marines and talking about 9/11, i’m sorry but this is to much for me, soon he’ll be kissing someones arse, oh wait- he’s already doing that…

  • Not good

    Well, it looks like it is over between gb and mg. I don’t think he should take her back. They couldn’t of been over for more than a few days before she was “hanging out” with her ex. not the actions of a girl in love or of any class or dignity. he is well rid. This girl can’t help but jump from man to man. Gross. I’m not saying he is a saint but her being with her ex days after sitting with gb is not a class act as she tries to portray. But she did this last year days after splitting with Adrien Brody. She is skanky. It wouldn’t surprise me if she got a better offer and will be seen with another A-B list sucker in a few days.

  • The Big Picture

    @@WOW:

    And not even the full first name at that. I heard she prefers being called Lina and he has never called her that.

  • The Big Picture

    @Where??:

    You mean the interview where he talks about her breasts being real, she getting him while never saying her name not even once and where clearly we hear him tell HS “Nah! Not going to marry her! You know me!”?

    Must have missed something as nowhere in there did I hear him say about her she had been the right one, the one he thought was the love of his life. I got more the impression that for him she had the one for a moment he thought he could have fun with.

    He did run up and see other women while with her and at that time he could have run back to her if he was in love with her. I got more the impression that this was a relationship built on lust and not love.

    When asked if she was the right one, he goes and says she’s amazing, nice, that he’s lucky and he was as she has dropped things to be with him and when he had the time to rush and support her, he didn’t do it, choosing to be elsewhere instead. He also said he was having fun and you can have fun even if you’re not in love. What kind of an answer is that to such a question as “Is she the one?” The right answer would have either been “Yes, she’s the one!” or “No, she’s not” or “I don’t know”.

  • The Big Picture

    @Greta:

    So your cousin works at Cookie’s? I don’t even know why he took MG shopping there as she didn’t need a warm coat for Scotland. She had one very warm expensive coat she was wearing in a picture she herself posted on her FB. He did well to put the credit card back in his wallet and to leave. She has Millions of Euros from what I told so let her spend a bit of her own money for a change!

  • GFW

    I think the like Gerry said on Twitter that the CP military base visit deeply touched him to bring some joy into their lives. I also believe he saw the enormity of their honor and responsibilities in serving and that will serve him well in coming roles. That it was also a humbling experience, fun, but humbling.
    ~K

  • @The Big Picture

    Funny that you assume that just because he/they were shopping it was to buy for her. May gifts for other family/friends?

  • It wouldn’t surprise me….

    if MG is preggo. A gossip blind alluded to it a few days ago. George/Stacey and Gerard/Madelina were to top guesses. Also, so what if he spends $$$ on her? He’s a millionaire. People with money spend it. Don’t get me wrong….I’m NO fan of this girl (don’t hate her, either), but don’t make something out of nothing.

  • stupidity is irritating

    @Where??: Sure as real as Rock Hudson’s marriage.
