Gerard is currently participating in an AMA on Reddit to promote his latest film Olympus Has Fallen. Don’t miss it!

“I always enjoyed the idea of studying as a lawyer and had a romantic notion of what it would be like to practice as a lawyer – but when reality hits you, and suddenly you’re in the office trying to perform as a lawyer – I realized that this is not what I wanted to spend my life doing. I didn’t want to find myself retiring and never having been brave enough to follow my dreams,” Gerry shared about his decision on not pursuing a career as a lawyer.

    Gerry nice to see you and your parents. You’re a lucky man. I hope that they will support you at the premiere today.

    Gerry now that Is a wonderful pic of you and your family, your Mum is just beaming. Just love it♥♥

  • Venus

    This is my Gerry…!

  • Tarty MG
    your girl’s a tramp GB!! she screwed leo dicaprio last year to get her name out and now she’s screwing you over. this is what happens when you start up with 23 year old girls because you’re thinking with the head that’s not on your 43 year old shoulders.
    if you want people to take your films seriously, you have to start acting like people should take gerard butler seriously. you should find a woman that people can admire, not tarty little girls like madalina ghenea. look at daniel craig, christian bale, hugh hackman. all with lovely wives who’s breasts they’d never talk about on howard stern, who have accomplishments of their own that they’ve achieved on their own (with their clothes on), and who don’t come with a trail of sexual tabloid baggage.
    it’s time to grow up gerry. if you want to have someone in your life, time to find a real woman. not the easy low hanging fruit tarts.

  • hyperbole

    Always take care of your mum and dad, Gerry. I’m glad to see you’re involving them in tonight’s festivities.
    Have a wonderful evening!!!

    And best of luck with OHF. Hope it’s a total success!!

  • Just to say

    Glad you have made up with your mum and dad, and Gerry, listen to mum, she speaks a lot of sense.

  • http://Charter rdh

    Thanks for sharing such a great photo! Means so much more when you share a special part of yourself…

  • GH

    Nice to see that the rift is over. Your mum and dad love you Gerry, as do we all, and they only want what is best for you.

  • Jeremy

    Where was it stated as fact there was any rift? Too many people like to believe gossip from unsubstantiated sources.

  • Kristen

    Tarty MG – You are a perfect example of why Gerry’s fan base are viewed as lonely, middle-aged, fat, housewife lunatics. Well done.

  • HeGrewUpLastNight

    Gerard – Beautiful family. Listen to them as our parents are our best friends. Truly they want the best for you. Remember from a child to a man….from a child to a man……they “know you.” Only they truly know you better than yourself. God Bless You Man! Love you bro.


    So happy that you and your parents have made up again. Hope all goes well at the première.

  • 0:)

    Mada like three/some? Gerry, you have “AMAZING” GF.Hahahaha! Sorry for the spoiled premiere.

  • Lily Marlene

    Cherish your mother and father and don’t let anybody come between you and them again. Unhappiness in a family is never nice so listen to your mother, she knows what’s best.

  • Lily Marlene


    Look, he knows she’s been cheating and also knows he should have listened to his family’s fears about her. Leave him alone.

  • http://justjared lolita

    Please folks, let him be tonight to enjoy his evening, just have it yours hearts to give him this evening, he is in a happy place now with a hit movie and family. Please!!

  • JS

    Just about to go to bed but wanted say hope all goes well tonight and glad you and your parents are reconciled. Remember Gerry, Scots mothers are always right, especially when it comes to their sons. God bless.

  • JS


    Most of the posters are wishing him well.

  • please

    @Kristen: Oh please Kristen. People said far worse about Madalina Ghenea when she was with Leo DiCaprio and Adrien Brody’s fans were not pleased either. She is not a well liked girl, and no wonder. Women don’t respect other women who use sex to get ahead instead of their own merit. Madalina Ghenea will never be accepted by US and UK women. They see right through her.
    Madalina Ghenea has no major international contracts.
    She has no major designer runway appearances.
    She has no covers of flagship edition Vogue, Elle, W, or any other top fashion publication.
    MG has only appeared in hardly challenging roles (model? stripper?) in small Romanian films, some eastern euro version of Dancing With the Stars (the promos for her have her stripping off her stockings – just so everyone would know why they signed her up), in videos stripping for men’s magazines like GQ, small market magazine spin offs (like Cosmo Romania), and a ton of pictures where she’s wearing nothing but underwear or bikinis, most of which don’t seem to have been published anywhere other than her Facebook pages.

    But then suddenly ……… after sleeping with Leo D., Adrien B., and Gerard B. ……… out of nowhere, she gets a role in a film with Jude Law and is in headlines touting her as a “supermodel” and actress?
    Women don’t respect that. Not in the US and UK anyway.
    Many of Gerard Butler’s fans would be very happy for him to settle down with someone beautiful and talented (is there still a petition to get him together with Rosario Dawson? lol) who would be a good thing for him and his career. Not with someone they can’t respect though.

  • cupcake

    Great pics of Gerry and his parents. Hope OHF does well. I think it will.

  • AlwaysEntertaining

    He’s regressing even more. Facebook? Twitter? LOL I wonder whose bright idea that was.

  • Across the miles

    All the best Gerry with love from all your friends in Scotland. May God and watch over you, and St Andrew protect you till we meet again.

  • http://JJ Bonnie

    @JS: I know his Mum and Step-Dad will have a great time tonight,his Mum will have a lot to tell her friends in Comrie back home.Hope all goes well with OHF and it’s a big hit.

  • Joie de Vivre

    Lovely family photo! The best of times are those spent with FAMILY and friends. Good Luck with the OHF screening tonight, Butler! Can’t wait to see it this Friday in a hopefully packed theater. Hi lolita! ♥

  • http://justjared lolita

    @JS: I know and I am so happy to see that, all the well wishes for him. Pretty soon there may be pics coming from Getty images showing the event and all the cast.
    It is exciting for him and all involved.
    Have a good sleep.

  • Wasteoftime

    Er, I hope you people realize that all of your lecturing and well wishes go to waste here. I’m sure he doesn’t read this site. If you want to talk to “him” you should be at his fb page.

  • JS


    He deserves the best. Can’t wait till the morning. Good night and God bless.

  • EH


    That he doesn’t actually do his FB page but if people want to post here then let them.

  • http://justjared lolita

    @Joie de Vivre: Hi Joie, nice to hear from you. He does look happy and peaceful in the family pic. His Mum is just glowing with pride. My big brute did it. He has hit movie, so, so happy for him. Glad you stopped in, always good to chat with you♥♥

  • http://justjared lolita

    @JS: Thank you and to you also♥♥

  • Joie de Vivre

    @lolita: I think he might hit jackpot with this one! As I’ve said before, I can’t wait to see one of his films in a packed theater. All good wishes to everyone involved in the film and to you, lolita, have a wonderful night and week ahead. Date night Friday night with both my men…LOL!! Be safe and happy!

  • http://justjared lolita

    @Joie de Vivre: Enjoy your date night sounds like fun, take care Joie and God Bless♥♥

  • Kristen

    @Please Yet another example of the lonely, obsessed fan. I’m embarrassed for you, honey.

  • haha


    His goofy mental GF does though, and so HO BAG, get a job.

  • Alina
  • Pais

    And are you hanging on this board tonight Kristen because you’re old lonely fat and obsessed with GB or because you’re old lonely fat and obsessed with MG?

  • Autumn

    Hey JDV & Lolita! Nice to see you here! I just love his mum and stepdad – they look like the nicest folks and that they laugh a lot & enjoy life. My hubby has already told me that he’s taking me to the Saturday matinee of OHF since it’s my weekend to plan our date.

    GB looks happy and the film looks kind of cool. Like I said previously great to see where you live & work blown to bits.

    Everyone enjoy and have fun! Stay safe, sane, happy and healthy.

    Best to all, Autumn

    At the ArcLight Hollywood for the OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN Premiere

  • Kristen

    @Pais Aw baby, I’m here to laugh at people like you. GB’s girlfriend knows what it feels like to be kissed and caressed and held and made love to by him. Something your fat tart a$$es will never know. Hardy har har. :)

  • Constance

    Anyone who comes on JJ and degrades and insults the other posters here is no better than the fans who insult MG. Pot meet kettle. You’re making Madalina look bad with your hateful “defence” of her, just as you claim Gerry’s fans make him look bad. Your hypocrisy is jaw-dropping and your presence here is pitiful.

  • Alina
  • justsayin’too

    so is MG in Italy and not at the Premiere? If so I guess she is lashing out at GB for not giving her the publicity of walking the red carpet. If those pictures are really form March 18th I would say they are not together, but who really knows? It could have been from a different time. When is the actual premiere?

  • Kristen

    @Constance, baby doll, I’m not defending his girlfriend. I’m laughing at pitiful people like you who are so jealous of a beautiful, young, exotic woman you don’t know. How many times do you think he will make love to her tonight?

  • :o)

    The official premiere is happening right now in LA.
    The film opens on March 22.

  • :o)

    “How many times do you think he will make love to her tonight?”
    The number of times is ZERO. He’s in LA and she’s in Milan.
