Gerard Butler Talks Having Fun with Dog Lolita

Gerard Butler Talks Having Fun with Dog Lolita

Gerard Butler holds his messenger bag in his hand while heading to an office building on Thursday (April 18) in Century City, Calif.

The 44-year-old Olympus Has Fallen actor recently chatted with Shortlist Magazine about his dog Lolita.

“I know it’s not politically correct to buy a dog from a pet store, but there was this one dog asleep with one eye open and its tongue hanging out. I pulled her out and she started biting the sh-t out me,” Gerard said. “I was going to leave but I couldn’t stop myself, so I bought her and we immediately started putting cigarettes in her mouth and all that stuff – not lit, of course – and I realized you could have lot of fun with a dog. Until she started sh-tting all over the place. I was on a private plane once, and it was like somebody had bathed us in sh-t.”

    Lolita not Gerard.

  • ha ha

    thats one fvked up story………

  • So Sad!

    Poor Lolita! That’s no way to treat a little puppy! He shouldn’t have a dog if that’s what he really did. She could still get toxins from that! I’m really shocked and disappointed! He’s going to have the ASPCA down on him if he’s not careful! What a jerk!

  • Not Butler

    What a dick, putting cigarettes on her mouth? such a loser

  • GFW

    Okay, this a little more serious meeting. He’s got The Shoes on. And his beloved Satchel he should consider writing a story about using it to tell it, has all he needs to his pockets don’t have to bulge! More gray, grey, and grayer.
    who wants to know when he turned 44? :o[

  • Teacakes

    There’s nothing funny about his stupid comments. His attempts at humor make him sound like a freaking lunatic. This is why he sucks at acting, he’s not funny and obviously not very smart. Most petowners speak lovingly of their pets, they don’t act this stupid.

    Oops, how soon I forget. He’s not acting.

  • thor’s day

    @GFW: they should say Gerard Butler in his 44th year then like the obits

  • Seriously PO’d phannie

    This is one time I really hope the story is wrong, otherwise he’s truly a moron who needs to grow up! Kids don’t do that crap to a dog, and they do a lot of crazy stuff. Sure glad Lolita obviously only has to deal with GB 3 times a year for photo ops. Hope her full time person is much nicer! At least MG can tell him he’s being an A$$.

  • mlllllllllllle

    First I was shocked by the name “Lolita” wich is to me the masterpiece written by Nabokov.
    Then I read the “fun” with the dog….WTF ?!

  • Check this out!
  • So Sad!

    Even if he’s kidding around this is in such poor form to even joke about something like that! This could seriously get PETA or someone calling him! He seems wired in this interview and flippant. I didn’t like it at all! Is he hell bent on loosing all of his fans? I’m shocked too by the response some of his fans make in light of his remarks as if it was all OK!

  • NLuvWithGB

    Damn – my opinion just changed tremendously – I love my dogs way more than him – guess I better change my freaking sock now!!!!

  • My Thoughts

    Probably just a figment of the journalists imagination.

  • So Sad!

    @mlllllllllllle: He excused that away one time by saying a girlfriend named her. That was the name of a story about an older man being obsessed with a teenaged girl of fifteen. I really don’t see any woman thinking that’s OK that has any self respect. And having fun with a dog is not by abusing it. I think he’s really gone too far this time, even if he’s just kidding, and stuck his foot so far down in his mouth, he’s going to choke on it! This is really going to come back to bite him in the butt!

  • So Sad!

    @My Thoughts: Well if that’s he case, GB needs to sue him! Making remarks like that about your little dog is NOT cool! I want to see him talk his way out of this one, as if even care anymore!

  • So Sad!

    He really seemed wired in that interview like he was high! The man is too self destructive for my tastes. I don’t always believe print interviews but I think this is something only he would say but then maybe qualify his remarks with “just kidding”. If he did, and the journalist wrote down what he said as gospel. then Gerry needs to stop saying sht that they can use on him! It’s his fault no matter how true it is.

  • mlllllllllllle

    @So Sad!: I’m gonna (try) to answer only about the novel Lolita;
    Actually I love that book, and that’s why this name is kind of sacred to me.
    Not that I hate dogs, I don’t like them around because I’ve been bite when I was a child, but I respect animals, and this thing about smoke is stupid, immature and cruel.
    Sorry for my english, it’s not my first language…;) Don’t hesitate to correct me, it makes me progress.

  • Give me a break!

    I think it is so funny and bet the pictures were a riot. He loves Lolita and would never do anything to hurt her.
    Of course we are talking about a dog who generally licks their own ass and has their nose in every dogs tush they meet, eat their own vomit and any cat dirt with relish.
    You want to beach about something, stick with Michael Vicks and his kind of perverted love of dogs and those that tie their dogs to trees in the boiling sun without water etc. Think you get my point.
    He travels with her, loves her to pieces and would never think of harming her. Plus she stays at the best hotels, has someone to walk her and take care of her. Just continue with your stupid rants and get a life.

  • cupcake

    Hi ladies. I don’t think gerry could ever hurt his lolita. He loves her to pieces.

  • FFS

    Some of you really need to get a life. He would never hurt the dog and lot’s of people do silly things with their pets, its all just a bit of fun.
    And stop reading anything into the name Lolitta, My friends mother had a dog called that years ago and it was named after her aunt.

  • So Sad!

    @Give me a break!: Even joking about something like this is not good. And what dogs do as dogs should not be confused as to what humans can inflict on them. If he thinks getting off on doing something like that to the dog as a puppy, what’s he done since? The whole point here is his talking about having fun with a dog by putting harmful things in it’s mouth to get a laugh! Is he also one of those guys who uses people in his life as the butt of his jokes? Like the remark of comparing his Mother and Aunt to a sumo wrestler? I bet she was mortified when she heard that and quite hurt. He’s got a big mouth and stupid one and it’s going to get him in a lot of trouble. He may think he’s reached the big time now and he can get away with it but he’s got a rude awakening coming to him! You act like a jerk, especially when it comes to the innocent abuse of animals or children, and talk like a hyped up seventeen year old all the time, people are going to ignore you and write you off as a prck and his acting skills aren’t going to save him either. He’ll be walking around asking people if HE can say, “This is Sparta”.

  • Connie

    I don’t believe anything that I read including here. It’s written to create a desire to continue visiting the web site and/or buy the products. However that being said you do have the idiots like me who will continue to visit (not buy) the free sites just to see how stupid somethings are. I don’t know if he did this or not but he’s treated her well over the course of years that he has had her. As far as her name, there are worse and I kind of like Lolita as a name. Doesn’t mean everyone is going to but then maybe you wouldn’t like the name of my dog. There have been some stupid names that I’ve heard but the owner liked them Tinky (this was a great dane), Malford (?), ’cause (don’t ask could not figure that won out – thought it was cuz but nope it was ’cause short for because), His and Her (LBJ’s dogs) so like I said to each his own.

  • So Sad!

    @FFS: Then he should have not said it or said he was joking around. I don’t think he thought he was hurting her but doing something to an animal that makes them uncomfortable or puts them at risk for amusement is abuse I don’t care who they are.

  • Kare

    He looks good in these pictures. Looks like he bulked up a bit, muscle showing. I hope he is on his way to discuss a new project. Would love to see Mike Banning resurface.

  • GFW

    That bit was in a interview posted at older threads that didn’t get a nod. Guess Just Jared loves getting hits to his blog/gossip site from Butler watchers so put it in the “headlines” as a draw. Whatever. It was over 6 years ago anyways. I mean, what was so bad about it? Who doesn’t play with their dogs?
    I did as puppies x2. They wore, ohm, reindeer ears, and hated them. Sunglasses, and hated them. It’s what we do.
    Some people dress their dogs up. Other than an adorable pink girly collar, I think little Lolita even has a motorcycle jacket. But I daresay she could fit into it today. And besides, she’s past all that ‘trendy’ stuff. She’s a grown-up like her dad now.

  • So Sad!

    @Connie: Sadly, there are a lot of people who shouldn’t have animals in their lives. This isn’t about a name so much as his reason for having the dog in the first place. Perhaps it’s the same as with his GF, to draw attention to himself.

  • Grrrrr

    @So Sad!:

    No but hopefully Little Lolita will bite him in the A$$ if he doesn’t treat her right!

  • Give me a break!

    @So Sad!: I think you do protest a little to much. Either you don’t have a dog or don’t understand humor or both No one inflicted injury to this dog or abused her in any way or continues to. If you persist in trying to find fault with his life style, then I think you have a problem not him. If you have been following his world film tour, you realize that he has a fan base around the world.
    So lets say he took a cig , no doubt filtered and stuck it in her mouth and took a picture, so freakin what. That is not abuse and you are ridiculous to imply it. I think you have some underlying hatred that he is doing so well and would like to see him suffer for god only knows why. But you are the one that needs to figure that one out.
    Lolita is a happy pouch, Gerry is lucky to have her and Lolita was saved from the pet store so many years ago and no doubt Gerry got over her shitting all over him in a plane too btw when I think of what I put my cats through growing up and dressing them in doll clothes….now that is abuse lol..

  • Give me a break!

    @So Sad!: Sorry, but you are an idiot. Why you go on is a wonder and kind of scarey actually. He bought the dog because he fell in love with her and loves her still. What is your problem? Now i know you don’t own a dog. They are funnier than most humans I know and certainly more forgiving than you.

  • So Sad!

    So instead of saying how much joy the dog has brought in to his life and how much she’s made him realize how rewarding it is to take care of a pet, he brags about how much “fun” they are to torment.


    Once again we are treated to the fair Mr. Butler’s ” sense of humor” in this story-telling. I doubt any of it is true, except that little Lolli-pup is his. Anyone who has spent Anytime delving into The Great G, knows what a softie and sweetie he is. I do hope for his sake, though, that he got to exhale and take a breath once he was inside the building. He is skinny enough without sucking in his tummy for the papps. Hope all is well with him.

  • Flash

    He’s boring and so his is made up life for the camera.

  • Sandra

    Here’s proof once again that Gerard Butler is a childish immature IDIOT!! Who the fck puts cigarettes a in a little puppy’s mouth??? What if the poor little puppy had started chewing and eating the ciggies?! As a dog owner myself I just get so frustrated about this. *shakes head*

  • Hey enabler…

    @Give me a break: You are a sicko if you think what he did was fun. Cigarettes are toxic to dogs. The tobacco, as well as the but/t can kill a dog. If she had chomped down or swallowed any part of it it could have put her in the hospital. I don’t think any vet would consider that a fun game to play with your dog. You will make excuses for anything he does. If you think that’s “humor” you shouldn’t own any animals, either, and you have a warped sense of humor.

  • thursday

    I’ve seen pics of GB lovingly embracing Lolita and you can tell he truly cherishes her…but I had to laugh when he said (from the quote above) “I pulled her out and she started biting the sh-t out me.” Ha! I’m sure that sweet little pug still has some feistiness in her and would let GB know what’s what…but I think they understand each other well.

  • So Sad!

    @Give me a break!: I never read anything about a picture being taken, as if that made it all acceptable anyway. And he “rescued” her from a pet store? Are you freaking kidding me? I bet he paid over a thousand dollars for that dog. It was an impulse purchase and not one well thought out! If he wanted a companion animal, he could have saved a life of a pug or any other dog by going to a shelter instead. I would believe more he was trying to impress someone in the moment more than anything else and don’t get me started on the pet store and puppy mill problem!

    He loves her? He’s already put the dog at risk a number of times by walking her off leash on busy streets, up in the park, again off leash, where coyotes lurk just waiting to snatch a little dog and then again in the park when she was off leash again and got attacked by another dog. What more proof do you want that he shouldn’t even have one?

    By the way, I have several dogs and cats, all rescue. You’re the idiot.

  • So Sad!

    @SUNKIST: Yeah, he’s more concerned about how he looks then his health. He’s smoking again. I guess you think that’s OK too, eh?

  • Sandra

    He leaves out the fact that he bought Lolita together with his then girlfriend Bianca Christians. Gerry bought Lolita and Bianca bought another little pug, Rambo, who’s also named after a movie character. When Bianca met the guy she’s now married to, Jesse Beck, she re-named Rambo to Rambo Paul after Jesse’s middle name.

  • Teacakes

    Naturally, his nanniephannie defenders rush to his aid. If he fa.rt.s, it’s rose-scented. If he says something that clearly shows he’s misogynistic, he’s “just silly and being Gerry”.

    If you phannies defend his words and actions so much, why won’t you defend his choice of a gf? Why pick on Maddie? She’s the only thing about him that’s real and fun. The rest is tedious and crusted over.

  • http://justjared lolita

    How many know that little Lolita has also been treated to room service when he travels with her. He would never do anything to harm her intentionally. She gets treated better than some children do. He makes sure of that.

  • So Sad!

    @Give me a break!: People like you make me ill! You’re too stupid and blind to see the reality of anything. All you’re concerned with is the superficial, just like this joker! He’ s shallow to the core and anyone who gives this guy credit for being any deeper then a mud puddle is totally living in a fantasy world. You do the moniker “phannie” proud!

  • http://justjared lolita

    He can make a horse’s hind end out of himself by things he says we all know that.

  • Dealwithit

    @lolita: Well he DID do something that could have not only harmed her, but killed her. One bite and she could have swallowed the b/utt and died. And he doesn’t treat her well at all. How much time has he spent with her in the past year? It was an impulse purchase, and whoever she lives with now is her real owner.

  • So Sad!

    @Teacakes I agree with you about “Maddie”. She’s just what he needs, a user. She’ll turn him every which way but loose if he lets her and it will be “biblical” watching it all unfold! Both of them deserve each other.

  • http://justjared lolita

    @Dealwithit: He had her on the movie set of OHF with a care taker. She is with him more than we all know. I would never harm an animal on purpose and I don’t think he would. As stupid as his action was, I am sure he made sure she didn’t eat any of it.

  • So Sad!

    @lolita: If he’s such a horse’s behind, why do you like him? Do you know that they say behind every “joke” there’s an element of truth? He gets away with way too much because of his looks and nothing else and I think he knows it.

  • Safari princess

    Wow. JJ really heard my plea last thread. Thank you Mr. Eng. But what a shi/t storm the choice of stories has started. Good God I hope GB was taking the pi/ss out of the journo or he just plunged into bottom feeder zone. Looking forward to the PR bit that lifts him out of this mess. What a numpty.

  • http://justjared lolita

    @So Sad!: Why do I like him because I don’t take to heart everything he says. I like most of his movies and just like me, I sometimes step in it by things I do and say. I never go out of my way to hurt people and he doesn’t seem to either.

  • http://justjared lolita

    @Safari princess: He can be a numpty at times.

  • http://twitter Nanda

    He was only joking. Of course I would never hurt Lolita. He says these things just to get attention. And he succeeded. He was in a narcissistic moment, but for now it is not all bad. He before actor / movie star is human, and has every right to make these crises.
