    -
    (London) – Nearly seven years after starring in 300, Gerard Butler (43) proves that he is a flexible actor capable of assuming diverse roles.
    .
    It’s been a rough couple of years for the actor. Largely seen as a purveyor of entertaining, but unimpressive, popcorn fodder in the romantic comedy and action genres, Gerard Butler spent 2011 and 2012 in pursuit of acting credibility.
    .
    “They were passion projects,” Butler said, speaking about the films Coriolanus (2011), Machine Gun Preacher (2011), and Chasing Mavericks (2012). “In actual fact, my passion for Coriolanus was all about working with Ralph Feinnes and Vanessa Redgrave, because when is someone like me gonna get to work with actors like that in a film with a real budget!”
    .
    And MGP and Mavericks? “Yeah. They were really good scripts. I thought they would show my versatility as an actor, but they didn’t end up showing much, did they?,” Butler confesses. “People actually have to go see a film to see your versatility in it.”
    .
    So, what went wrong? Why did audiences not follow him to his passion projects? Butler explains that when he saw the numbers for MGP, he assumed that the film had been poorly marketed. “It’s such a great story! And we put in a lot of work to make it look authentic. I ended up scraped and bruised, with chunks of my skin taken off, all because we were pushing limits we probably shouldn’t have been, truely.” Butler laughs nervously, like he’s recalling a near miss after a joy ride in his parents’ car. “Anyone who knows what the story’s really about would rush to the theater to see it.”
    .
    “But then . . .,” Butler pauses. He looks out the window and stares into the distance. Another interviewer might marvel at this, admiring the dramatic effect. To me, however, it seems like he’s buying time, trying to decide whether to say what’s on his tongue.
    .
    But then? Butler looks at me, “But then Mavericks came out and tanked. Playing for Keeps came out and tanked, despite also having Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jessica Biel, Dennis Quaid, and Uma Thurman in it.” Butler looks into the distance again. “I had been in front of every camera that I could find to promote these movies, and on every radio show. Howard Stern, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Good Morning America, local television affiliates in New York, LA, everywhere in between. And it didn’t matter. That’s when I realized, ‘maybe it’s me.’”
    .
    What does an actor do when he finds himself in such a crisis, such a low after hitting such a height in a giant film like 300. “Well, first, I had to make some money. So, I booked an action film, Olympus Has Fallen, that we could market to the 9/11 heart strings and sell as a big budget, effects film.” Solid plan. “Then, I got a trophy girlfriend.”
    .
    A what? “A trophy girlfriend,” Butler repeats. I look at him warily, hoping for a punchline. “She was only 23 when I met her, nearly 20 year my junior, a lingerie and bikini model, and the ex-girlfriend of Leo DiCaprio.” Not the punchline that I was hoping for. “I thought, ‘well, if I’m not going to earn my own Oscar nomination, I may as well sha.g like an Oscar nominee!’”
    .
    At this point, I am looking out into the distance, wondering if the window might be a plausible escape route from this interview. It feels like I’m alone in a hotel room with Lindsay Lohan and a mound of cocaine, and there’s no way that an ambulance could arrive in time.
    .
    “I didn’t know that she had been shaggi,ng my mate Adrien Brody, too. But at that point, I really didn’t care.” Butler laughs at himself, like he is amused by his own joke of confusing absurdity for charm.
    .
    Trying to make lemonade, I ask the visibly agitated actor for this trophy’s name. “Madalina Ghenea.” Are you still seeing her? Butler laughs, “occasionally.” Is that by choice? Butler laughs again, “occasionally.”
    .
    The mood in the room turns to something very dark and uncomfortable. For the first time in my career, I consider pleading for an actor’s publicist to interrupt and stop the interview. To avoid a full collapse, I try to steer us back to his career. So, what are you working on now?
    .
    “Nothing,” Butler says. “Wait! That’s not really true. I’m starring in a reality show on the Internet.” Really? “Yes. It’s broadcast on Madalina’s Facebook page.” He smiles at me like he’s channeling Jack Nicholson. “She produces it herself!” You must be very proud, I hedge. “Oh yes, I am,” Butler says, unconvincingly. “She’s mastering the art of exploitation, keeping the tabloids hooked with photos and hints about her life, and mine, without giving them everything so they have to come back for more, to see what happens next.”
    .
    So, you’ve gone from playing Leonidas to Spencer Pratt? “Basically,” Butler admits. “Pays ****, but she lays me well!” He looks like I should be impressed and deflates when I’m clearly not.
    .
    Butler looks back to the distance. “Well, it’s a role. It’s something.”

  • emmmmm

    @Staged: ditto! :D

  • Staged

    @emmmmm: What a GREAT story !!!! that needs to be posted on his facebook page for ALL the 1million fans to read. Let his PR team get a load of that shite since they seem to have no problem letting his She who shall remain nameless , keep running his PR further in the ground. Shame on you jj for letting her use you to try and gain a thread via him once again. I do hope this means he has a job back in the US , finally.

  • FYI

    @Staged:

    Someone will get sued for that piece of garbage. It was reported to the authorities.

  • Kali Orexi

    @Staged: I’ve got it copied and pasted on his wall, not sure if I want to press the post button…

  • Can’tGetEnough

    @Staged: It was a great story. So funny, I had to laugh at it. I’m a bit skeptical about him going back to the US though. I’ve got a feeling he’s going somewhere else.

  • Ruby Tuesday

    Why can’t I post? Why do I go in to moderation most times?

  • Kali Orexi

    @Staged: I’ve got it copied and pasted on his wall, not sure if I want to press the post button… don’t wanna get banned!

  • emmmmm

    @Can’tGetEnough: yeah me too, a few days in the tropics maybe? Ahhhh, it was short lived :D

  • emmmmm

    @Kali Orexi: with all the crap that was on his wall and no one absolutely no one got banned. I pm’d you. I had it public and deleted it. What to do? It’s just tooo good an article

  • Hey emmmmm

    Do you think JJ would make up where he was going, or that they were told? Judging by the wording, it seems like they were informed of his destination. Are you thinking this is a trick?

  • Ruby Tuesday

    @FYI: Oh yeah right, like everything else that has ever been “reported” around here or written about him. Maybe you fear it is true. Really it sounds like something Gerry would say and whomever wrote it did a good job of capturing the reality of it all.

  • emmmmm

    @Kali Orexi: I’ll do hers and you do his ROFL we’re back baby, we’re back!! deal? :D

  • Kali Orexi

    @emmmmm: I know, it really is… it should be posted on her page as well lol

  • Ruby Tuesday

    @Kali Orexi: PLEASE DON’T DO THAT, KALI! Why would you paste it on HIS wall? What if it’s a fake? DON’T DO IT!

  • Kali Orexi

    @emmmmm: I messaged you back. Won’t be posting for now, could always do it later.

  • Kali Orexi

    @Ruby Tuesday: Don’t worry Ruby, I have decided not to do it as I don’t want to humiliate him. That would be very cruel and the article is indeed fake.

  • emmmmm

    @Hey emmmmm: don’t stress, if JJ posted it as destination to the US then paps may have asked him where he was going. BUT and there is always with this man a BUT, a few days en route as stop over, the 8th? Possible, sorry, but true :D

  • Kali Orexi

    @emmmmm: hahahahaha you crack me up! I also wonder if he can’t afford shoe laces lol

  • emmmmm

    once again he’s dumpster diving at goodwill for clothing. maybe he bought his shoes and outfit from a homeless bum.

  • Kali Orexi

    My reply was to #39, don’t know why it’s posted before your remark Emmmm…

  • Can’tGetEnough

    He was probably asked and he just told them the US to keep them off of his trail. Originally I had thought that maybe that’s why she went ahead with her friend and he was going separately, so they didn’t have a repeat of what happened with the paps in Romania. That is, until she started posting pics. It was easy to figure out where she was staying, but she knew it would be.

  • emmmmm

    he’s missing his stunning supermodel gf madalina but maybe she join him in states soon. he may miss her birfday

  • emmmmm

    @Kali Orexi: #39 that’s the troll Kali! LOL :D

  • Ruby Tuesday

    If he’s heading for the US, he’s going to miss somebody’s birthday. If he is heading for the US there will be a sighting eventually. If nothing, chances are it was a diversion promoted on this site and he must think people are really stupid because she’s going to let everyone know where he is anyway.

    If that article is the real deal, I have to give him credit for totally being aware of what’s going on and owning the problem and accepting it goes a long way to fixing it. But I’m also worried that he’s given up a little bit too. He did work hard on those films and he is disappointed. I would think his success with OHF would have lifted his confidences a bit more.

    I think he’s been down for a while with all that has happened and this time his drug of choice has been a seedy affair with a fame hungry manipulator. Hope he does come back to the US and get himself back on track. If not, I wish him the best in the road he’s chosen because he’s going to need it.

  • party pooper?

    @FYI: oh was that you? remember truth is the ultimate defence and pretty sure he won’t want to open up a can of worms when it comes to his personal life, besides parody and satire are permissible

  • omg omg

    @Ruby Tuesday:

    it’s fake, can’t you see that?????

  • emmmmm

    @Ruby Tuesday: don’t be naive, that is not a real article, as if??

  • cutie pie

    hello babe.

  • Ruby Tuesday

    @omg omg: How do you know?

  • Ruby Tuesday

    @emmmmm: Again, how do YOU know it’s fake? You’re the one who posted it, right?
