    Now that’s embracing your positive past and working it! Lest we forget. Now who could forget Butler in 300? No one. Everyone I’ve ever talked to about watched it numerous times. Numerous. Men and women.

  • MG is just too young

    People are being very cruel to Madalina Ghenea, and some of the things that Gerry fans are writing on her Facebook page are just psycho. Following an actor’s career is a fun distraction, but you have to wonder about people who become so invested in someone they don’t know that it rises them to anger and causes them to attack other people they don’t know. That’s just not a stable mind.
    *
    But I also think that Madalina Ghenea has to take responsibility for her role in all of this. She has decided to make herself a public figure and has actively sought out attention from the public. She has set up Facebook and Twitter accounts for which she literally asks people to “follow” her. She posts information about her personal life and photos from her personal life on those accounts. She has chosen to engage the public in her personal life.
    *
    I think it is juvenile for her to now claim that she has no responsibility for her reputation, that people who don’t like what they see of her have problems or are bad people, when she’s the one who asked the public to be interested in her personal life and help her develop a bankable professional and public reputation. That’s kind of like a smoker blaming a cigarette for giving her lung cancer, like the cigarette forced its way into the smoker’s mouth and the smoker has no responsibility for her choice to smoke in the first place.
    *
    I think that’s what some of the complaints on her Facebook page from her actual fans, not Gerry fans, are getting at. There are a number of them, people upset because they’ve defended her on various sites, including JJ, because they think that she’s making Romania look bad by two-timing a boyfriend who is publicly praising her, who also happens to be her third Hollywood boyfriend in one year, or because they think that she’s not acting with the dignity of someone who wants to be taken seriously as an actress. The only super positive comments seem to be from men who see her as a sex object, another image that she’s actively made for herself, not just through the Hollywood romances, but the type of modeling she’s chosen to do.
    *
    In the end, she’s just acting like a child, and it should be remembered that she is only 24. It doesn’t matter what someone has done or seen, at 24, you’re still very young and naive about the world at large and people in general. A lot of people thought Gerard Butler should have thought of that when he started dating Madalina Ghenea at 23. Whether they’ve broken up or are still together, I hope he’s thinking about that now, for both his sake and hers.

    I thought Gerry looked good last night on Kimmel. He’s told that story before on the Craig Ferguson show and it was a river that he saved the boy from drowning in. I love Kimmel, he’s such a cool guy. Like a big kid and he treats his guests with respect. The movie looks good I just hope there is an audience for it. So many action movies coming out this season sometimes that tends to burn people out. It’s good that its being released before GI Joe.

  • GFW

    @MG is just too young:
    She courted it. Willed it. Favorable or not, just talk about her. It’s grown old, too loud, annoying, not profitable to him. If he were into her she’d be with him at his Hollywood premiere. I mean if he wants a high-profile relationship then he shouldn’t be picking and choosing where to be seen with her or where he allows himself to address her. Something is up.
    -
    Frankly, I simply wish he’d go back to wanting a “civilian” like how he was talking in 2009. Someone who isn’t hell-bent on using him but being a part of him, it, all of it without grandstanding. Make sense?
    ~K
    who says the “@” poster… don’t tell me what to say or how to say it… the snake-headed blood-sucking python is out of the picture and for as long as she is he can get some rest, enjoy not being stabbed in the back, worrying about what she’s saying behind it, being betrayed or lied to as her silence (everywhere… including here) is noticeable

  • Ah 300!

    @GFW:

    Maybe he’ll reconsider and do the sequel?

  • GFW

    Yes, timing is good for this film. It’s the first of the “White House” films. It’s before G.I. Joe and others full-throttle summer blockbusters. It’s different in that it enters the psyche of Secret Service who serve in secret. How they put their lives before another person’s. Something many can’t fathom. It’s also about how the DC area, the tri-state area, would handle such a horrific situation.
    ~K

  • GFW

    @Ah 300!:
    Who knows? He’s in good shape. It could be a big payday for a short role. Why not? I think he said a villain is lined up next, but who knows? He’s a water sign!
    ~K

  • get rational

    @GFW: I think you people are not listening to Gerry – he has chronic injuries because he over did it to get into Spartan shape for 300, he is not going to risk his health to get into 300 shape for a small role in a film

    start thinking logically

  • Kristen

    You people are flat out bat$it crazy. Step away from the computer and stop obsessing over Gerry’s wife. Really. You’re borderline stalking her.

  • DocP

    @Kristen:
    He didn’t have a wedding ring on when he was on the Kimmel show last night. It was obvious he kept raising his left hand with a sweeping movement…….no ring, not married.

  • DocP

    @Kristen:
    Besides there is no way she could keep that quiet, she would be busting at the seams. If they are still together and that’s IF, it must be killing her to not talk about it. In that way she really shows her age. Most mature woman keep their love life private.

  • Kristen

    @DocP It doesn’t matter what you think about him being married. It doesn’t matter what you think about his beautiful, exotic, young wife. All that matters is that it will never, ever be YOU.

  • Yawwwwwn

    @Kristen:
    Take a hike, troll. Your daily attempts to try and get people to believe they’re married is lame, not to mention ridiculous. She hasn’t been around for weeks, in case you hadn’t noticed. Put down the cra.ck pipe and get a life.

  • GFW

    @get rational:
    Nah, I agree. I know. I listen, trust me. I’m just trying to keep it on topic rather than talk about the head-lice, dig me?
    -
    All I noticed on Kimmel and Letterman and in the interviews (audio and in print) is how he’s deleted a grand portion of it. He’s streamlined it, brilliantly I might add, to exclude intimate details that he does not want to talk about or be associated with.
    -
    SO he was highly entertaining, articulate and wise (even if he can’t sit still). The movie should be the focus. Speak to Scotland then address to sleeping at his mom’s house, and why. The stresses of being Gerry and living on the edge, up in the air a lot of the time.
    -
    He’s trying to rise like a Phoenix from a pile of ashes that happened when he crash-landed (figuratively speaking) in my opinion. And he’s doing that very well. Looks the happiest I’ve seen him in a long time.

  • DocP

    @Kristen:
    Well first of all how would you know it wouldn’t be me?? You don’t know who I am, you don’t know any of the posters. Second I know it wouldn’t be me because I would never tolerate someone who disrespects woman the way he does. And third you don’t know him or her you just love to be antagonistic to anyone who doesn’t gush about her. What’s bizarre was that I made a compliment about her and most of the board was throwing hateful darts at me. I simply state what I see, unlike you and a few others I don’t have a bias either way. This is just something light to comment on before I get back to more serious stuff so in 3 words…..Lighten up Frances!!!!

  • sweet

    What kind Twitter comments…so sweet! Really looking forward to seeing OHF…will be the second GB movie on the big screen for me.

  • DocP

    Ashley actually went to the premiere of OHF then she must have left and gone straight to the taping of DWTS’s where her sister Winona is one of the contestants. They made it a point to show Ashley and their Mom being there to give support for her sister. She had the same dress on. I’ve always liked Ashley, hope all goes well now that she’s gotten rid of that piece of cr.ap race car driver that she called a husband.

  • SuperficialButler

    @Eileen: Please. Gerard wants women in their 20s. Poor woman does not have a chance. He has said very rude things about older women and especially ones with children. Something about the bodies are never going to be as good as before the children.

  • Eileen

    @SuperficialButler:
    I know he likes young women … but he has also dated older women in the past.
    -
    When did he say those rude things about older women and women with children? Do you have a link?

  • sweet

    No matter what GB says or feels I will always be a fan…although I’ve never spoken to him face to face I can sense he is a kind and good person…sometimes we just have a really good feeling about someone and we try to express that in the best way we know how.

  • sweet

    Looks and sounds like everyone involved had a great time at the OHF premiere. I was surprisingly thisclose to heading out there to sit in the audience and watch the film with all the hoopla surrounding it…but with my luck I would gotten there and left without having had the chance to even seen GB knowing it’s a busy time for him being pulled in many directions…but all the great fan pics and videos give me hope for one day!

  • sweet

    Typing on my phone with a few typos…”have” gotten there; “see” GB.

  • Eileen

    @sweet:
    You have only seen one of GB’s movies on the big screen? Which one? Is it because you a new fan or because you like to see his movies at home? ;-)

  • Karen

    I agree with @sweet. No matter what he does I will be a fan. I think Ashley Judd and he would make a nice couple and he seemed to have fun with her. BUT his queen was with him, mum. He has such pride and love for her and she for him it’s great. We must accept that Madalina makes him happy. What happens in his life will happen no matter what we hope for. We can only hope that he is always happy and safe – did anyone see the bowl of soup he fell asleep in. Great friends they will let him drown while they take his picture LOL!!!!

  • sweet

    #37: A newish fan… beginning with an unexpected viewing of TUT on DVD…and then I was hooked, lol, just didn’t know how hooked. :) Although I had previously watched the incredible POTO and 300, also on DVD, I didn’t make the connection until I clearly saw his face in TUT and then those eyes. MGP turned out to be the first GB film I saw on the big screen. Unfortunately CM and PFK flew in and out of the theatre…and I just recently watched them both. So, next up at the movies is OHF. With regard to your last thought…preferably, Yes!

  • Ana Bella

    GB’s mother loved JA too, but he didn’t.
    They don’t have same taste ever

  • Gerryfan

    @Karen:

    “BUT his queen was with him, mum. He has such pride and love for her and she for him it’s great. We must accept that Madalina makes him happy”

    But she will never make his mother happy and for that reason he will never marry her and most likely will ditch her.

    Madalina Ghenea is on a FB posting spree and liked some quote that a fan posted about having limits, forgiveness, and letting men go.
    Laurie Cholewa is tweeting Gerry about his bubble pants.
    LOL >>>> WHY DO FAMOUS PEOPLE OPEN AND EXPOSE THEMSELVES ON SOCIAL MEDIA??
    It’s like friggin reality television, except LIVE.

  • Just to say

    @Eileen:

    MG getting bad comments on this one.

  • Just to say

    @GBMG Reality TV:

    There was comment from someone saying that she and Marco made a lovely couple but it was removed.

  • http://www.jj.com Clamsie

    @Kristen: LOL Kristin. You nailed it. They’ll never have him and they are sick with jealousy and rage because Maddie has him. He likes women like Maddie, models, stunningly beautiful, exotic and foreign are all he’s into. And YOUNG. He doesn’t date older women, at least not for long. It won’t shock me a bit if he marries her. I’d love to see it, especially now that he’s going to be taking a long period of time off from acting. Maybe he IS planning on settling down. It’s about time.

    #42: Great video…so fun…S-P-A-R-T-A! Bubble wrap pants? The ultimate in protection.

  • Let me tell you

    @SuperficialButler:

    I’ve had two children and my body is better now than before I had kids. I feel the need to take up for women on this one. I am tall, was too skinny before kids but workout more now and I would never go back to pre-baby body. Ever. FYI

  • DARTH

    @Clamsie

    He’s never going to marry her especially now he’s found out she’s still been sleeping with her ex all through thier relationship.

  • sparta

    Just wondering…does he have actual pants on under the clear bubble wrap, lol! ;) I’ll have to take a look…at the picture, naturally.
