Gerard Butler: 'Olympus Has Fallen' Mexico City Premiere!

Gerard Butler: 'Olympus Has Fallen' Mexico City Premiere!

Gerard Butler suits up in Z Zegna for the premiere of his film Olympus Has Fallen held at the Antara Mall on Friday (April 12) in Mexico City, Mex.

The 43-year-old star of the film attended a photo call for the flick earlier in the day.

“I feel like I’ve come out of a string…of bad-luck movies. Sometimes my fault, but other times not my fault,” Gerard told The Independent. “I can’t specify a movie, but there was one where I just think it was the wrong director, and another where the director had to be taken off the film because he basically had Alzheimer’s. And if you make a few movies in Hollywood that don’t make a lot of money, you’ve got to be careful.”

    @Lord Love a Duck:

    Hey, Ducky — we’re thinking along the same lines. I was going to reserve the space for Lolita. LOL

  • Lord Love a Duck

    @SouthernBelle: Now that is funny SB. Hope she is okay.
    Well, here we go again. lol

    So happy for GB on the success of OHF as well as the promo tour…loved all of the interviews and pics!

  • Teacakes

    These pics are two days old. JJ’s falling down on the job. Backhanded compliment: he doesn’t look half bad in these pics. He also looks unhappy probably because he misses Maddie.

  • Carrie

    Continued success. This movie is great. Hope you stay with action. Will not say don’t listen to negative remarks, it hurts, but look at what you have done. You continue to support others and people care about you and what you do. Good luck and thanks.

    WOW! Gerard Butler with his smallest fan Baby Máxi!

    OHF is a SUCCESS! YAY! Worldwide success to boot! YES! Thank you TEAM!!! Butler couldn’t have done it without all of you! Let’s see more of this kind of return from the public. Wonder how Coachella is going this year?

    Wow! Love how fast JJ moved off that awful last headline….”I love Nudity”…Yeah, really? Tell us something we don’t know. Butler is the original drooling, lip-smacking teenager. LOL!!! OHF is a worldwide success! WELL DONE TEAM!!! Butler couldn’t have done it without them all. So happy to FINALLY see him in a film that lasts in theaters for 3 weeks plus. I loved all the others since my fandom started 2 years ago, but this one is grabbing folks from all walks of life, thank goodness, and for that I am truly thankful. I do love lolita’s big brute, though. Can’t help myself. Take care all! Love and positive thoughts!

  • Joie de Vivre

    Not that it is any of my business, but GFW, what was with the attack on God Bless Youu all??? I don’t get it? Sorry to butt in, but I just caught up from Thursday, and of all the posts these last couple threads, those were glaring to me. GBYA offers the most positive messages we read here. And her messaages contain the ONLY truth we read here, to be sure. Did I miss something? Sorry if I am intruding but I just cannot understand this one.

  • Kim

    According to MG’s facebook page, she’s in Rome today.

  • SouthernBelle

    @Alina:

    Alina, as aways, thanks for the pix.

    Beautiful lady!! She brought a smile to his face.

  • SouthernBelle

    @cupcake:

    Hey, Cupcake — hope all’s well with you. Glad you enjoyed OHF. Guess G will be in Mexico for at least one more day, since he’s doing the radio interview.

  • ?????????????????????????????
  • Kim

    @?????????????????????????????:
    I saw that link, but I have to wonder if this person mistook Gerry’s assistant, Amy, for his girlfriend. If you read MG’s facebook pages, she hasn’t left Europe and today she’s in Rome.

  • http://deleted tony

    @Kim:
    sorry but nobody cares about MG here.

  • Hmmm

    @Kim: Maddie just updated her FB to show he had been in Rome, past tense. She is with Gerry now.

  • Joie de Vivre

    @cupcake: You remain true to your name, cupcake. Always sweet. I think CGE said it first. Warm wishes to all!

  • kelly

    ok I am going to say it like it or not OMG that man looks hot in a suit wow he cleans up good. looking good handsome hope the movie does great all around the world ……..

  • Joie de Vivre

    @SouthernBelle: I thought he was in Indio, CA for Coachella since yesterday afternoon. I read where he had rented a “thingy”. Just goes to show how elusive that rascal is….LOL!!! Good for him! Wish I could have experienced all the music at Coachella, whether he was there or not…. a feast of live music, no doubt.

  • Lord Love a Duck

    @cupcake: Hey Cupcake and Joie as well. yes, I guess it’s going to get harder to find him and getting used to seeing him in street clothes. Love him in those gorgeous suits. Notice that I am not saying anything about t h e shirt. lol. Bet he has a dozen of them or so….
    SBelle, I didn’t know he was doing a radio show tomorrow. Thanks for that.

  • Joie de Vivre

    @SouthernBelle: My first take was, wow…nice photo of Uncle Ger and his girls at graduation/prom/whatever. That’s mean, isn’t it? But it’s what I see. Not this photo, necessarily, just the whole concept of late. For all of us, it’s true….there’s nothing more embarrasing than a middle-aged person trying to act like an adolescent. Just my opinion of course.

  • Hmmm

    @Joie de Vivre: Coachella is this coming weekend also. :)

  • SouthernBelle

    @Joie de Vivre:

    Joie, he may be there on the 19th for the second weekend.

  • Joie de Vivre

    @Hmmm: Good point. I always forget it’s a two weekend affair. Good for him. Live music is always good for the soul. And a week long break in between gives the maintenance folks a chance to clean out the port-a-potties. LOL! Not that I believe that story… I mean, he supposedly has a rented tent this time…HAHA!! Sorry, couldn’t help myself. He asks for it…. ♥

  • SeeSawSally

    MG IS in Rome. Her premiere is tomorrow, not the 18th. The movie starts in theaters on the 18th, same day as OHF starts in Italy, but the actual red carpet premiere is on the 15h, tomorrow. It’s a 15 hour flight from Rome to Mexico City, so there’s no way she has been there (posting in London and now in Rome), or will be there. Gerry was seen apparently with someone else thought to be his GF (and it could be a new one, we don’t know). But MG is not in Mexico with Gerry, has not been and is not now.

  • Joie de Vivre

    @Lord Love a Duck: Hey Ducks!! Hope you are well! Did you never actually get to see OHF in the theater after your company dispersed? Sorry if I missed the posts. Crazy busy life right now. Good to see you here.

  • http://deleted tony

    maybe GB is going to Rome…

  • Joie de Vivre

    Life is strange. A roller coaster ride. If we’re lucky. How do we each end up with this fate we must embrace? Just wondering if anyone else wonders the same at times.

  • cackling witches

    @Joie de Vivre: For all of us, it’s true….there’s nothing more embarrasing than a middle-aged person trying to act like an adolescent. Just my opinion of course.

    But a very smart opinion.

  • Lord Love a Duck

    @Joie de Vivre: Yep, I did get to see OHF. I did like it very much, but have to say and really hate saying this, although .the movie was done wonderfully well, a little to much for me with the killing and torment part. Thought my heart was being heard and sitting there with a death grip on the theatre seat really isn’t my cup of tea. Never said anything here because of it, but I’m a wimp, can’t help it. I know everyone was clammering for an action movie, but give me Dear Frankie or POTO and Beowulf any day. I did love MGP does that make up for my critique of OHF?
    Had a great time with the family, lots of cooking, busy, fun and never want to do it again. lol So glad you asked! Don’t I sound like a barrel of laughs.

  • Diana

    GFW you are silent when I am here. N and D love Madalina. She is the crazy brilliant he needs.

  • Lord Love a Duck

    Crap, now I’m on a quilt trip and never should have said that about OHF. JJrs and Joie so sorry, don’t hate me for what I said, it was patriotic and all that. I got that part.and Gerry was perfect for the part as was Aaron and everyone else. Crap.hate quilt. Shamed Ducky……my dog loves me.

  • paula

    @Lord Love a Duck: Why are you so terrified of criticizing Gerry’s film? You feel “ashamed” for suggesting OHF was too violent for your taste? Those fan sites really do a number on you people. You’re a grown adult; you’re aloud to give an honest opinion without apologizing all over yourself.

  • lups
  • lups
  • Lord Love a Duck

    Oh heavens no, not terrified in the least, more upset with myself for being such a wimp when it comes to the violence. The audience applauded and I heard others theatres cheered as well. The funny part is that I loved Coriolanus, but knew the story, i’m watching the Gladiatior now and that doesn’t bother me. Never really thought about it before, but maybe to close to present circumstances and the wars going on for so long with our boys away.
    Can’t explain it really, but there is no terror of critical voices here on JJ.

  • lups
  • More of the same…

    Of course she is with him in Mexico. She would leave him there by himself after what happened the last time?

  • He will be in Rome

    You will see Gerry in Rome for her premiere.
    It’s an I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine thing.
    She went to his premiere in Rome and now he’ll go to hers.
    .
    After that, he’ll take her to Coachella to make up for the bad press from last year. He won’t go there solo because rumors will flare up again. He’ll show her off and we’ll get some great photos of the man.
    .
    Judging by the off and on PR photo opportunities for this couple, I am certain he’ll be Rome for her premiere. If, and that’s a huge if, he isn’t, then it’s either over, or he’s not living up to his end of the bargain. Either way, it would be rude. You are meant to support your partner, no?

  • Just to say

    @?????????????????????????????:

    Gerry will certainly be there with friends and he may have asked the guy if he would like to spend some time with “us” meaning his friends, and the guy just assumed he meant girlfriend. There again, the guy could just be talking a load of rubbish and just trying to show of to his friends.

  • Just to say

    @He will be in Rome:

    “You are meant to support your partner, no?”

    Yes, when that person is genuinely your partner, but there is no reason to do so when the whole thing is a sham.

  • Yuck ugly brunette with Gerard

    It’s a sham – Gerard will be in LA at Coachella with all of the hot women that LA has or whatever – and that thing that has attached herself to him, Man-DUH-Lina, will be at her lame z-rated movie premiere, m’kay?
