Gerard Butler Makes Time for Fans at LAX!

Gerard Butler Makes Time for Fans at LAX!

Gerard Butler keeps it cool and casual as he arrives at LAX Airport on Monday afternoon (August 3) in Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old actor made sure to take time to sign autographs for fans before making his way through the terminal to catch his departing flight out of town.

Last month, Gerard was spotted with some buttons on his shirt unbuttoned while taking his cute pup Lolita for a walk around the neighborhood in Beverly Hills.

If you haven’t seen it, have a look at the first teaser trailer for Gerard‘s upcoming film London Has Fallen!

    I hear Ford and I think Henry Ford, a Model T, birth of the assembly line, multi-tasking and affordable cars for the masses which changed how we live today. I do feel if he’s representing the Ford Focus we have a well synchronized profitable match. Why Ford?

    Brazil is home of a world-famous author who wrote The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho. His famous book just turned 25.

    The one thing everyone loves about GB is his friendliness and accessibility to fans and colleagues. This is the real GB here. He looks happy so much of the time now and in my opinion it has a lot to do with his personal life starting to fall into place. His priorities seem to be focused there. Does he drive a Ford at all? I can only remember him driving Range Rovers and Mercedes the past couple of years.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    I honestly feel the only time we’ll ever see him in a Ford Focus is in this commercial, which is a bit curious all things considered. I’m dying to read how this project got introduced to him, why he selected it, when interviews appear. Ford?

    Just go back to being “Julia” already.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Julia morphed into Anonymous. The old gang is back not better and improved like they think, just back.

  • Roxanna

    I’m a long ago JJ poster. Stopped posting several years ago. Not Julia. Nobody special or memorable. Just a fan of GB and his career in acting. And I kick out of his antics sometimes.

  • PR_bs

    That was yesterday. Today’s name is “Roxanna”. I don’t get the point when a poster is so recognizable.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    It could be Julia as Anonymous is steering clear of promoting his “personal life” and “Roxanna” is permitted to do so? Could be.

  • Roxanna

    Sorry, but you are mistaken. I’m boring. Not passive-aggressive like so many who post here now and then.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    So said Julia ages ago. Why a need for so many with so many socks? Everyone driven away? Why could be one of many reasons.

  • Roxanna

    Again, just little old me who decided to start posting again last thread. I do not have any kind of imagination required for all of that nonsense.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Yet when you posted in the last thread you did so then left, now you’re… defending yourself?

    This might not go over well but the “real GB” is a composite of Gerry Butler at different times, never the same twice. For this short gig he’ll be on his best “GB” behavior which will exhaust him along with having to actually work again. No fault but his as living under potential is the new him for now.

  • Roxanna

    Not at all. Just wanted to comment on a new thread as is my right. I am not Julia or anyone else trolling. I actually posted about trolls possibly being called to the carpet soon because there are so many here and they are not me. But I will leave again so you folks can relax.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    You might be able as ‘little old me’ to fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all of the time. I’m proud of my lace reading skills. I nailed you.

    You’d think Julia would find a better name since the original Anonymous scared the living daylights out of her. And then some.

    Actually, he doesn’t seem to be happy posing with the middle aged blond lady. He is not even smiling in the picture. Only she does.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    He looks annoyed too much these days doesn’t he?

    It isn’t about that, her comment. It was to promote the “personal life” angle for conversation then split. Come back as Anonymous later on when her other sidekicks (heavy on the kick) show up to support and up vote her. She is rarely here without backup.

    It would have been nice if they could have promoted what the trip was about, but who knows what intern is working threads this summer or what they know.

  • Roxanna

    I don’t get that from the picture with the selfie-taking blonde. Look at the very next picture. He is authentically happy so much of the time now in my opinion. For whatever reasons, and I haven’t a clue, only my own conjecture.

  • Roxanna

    Please let it go and lighten up on your conspiracy theory. I am not Julia or Anonymous or anyone else but Roxanna, poster from way back when, back for some more JJ fun. What is your problem with the comment about his personal life anyway? I do believe his personal life is improving. For example, without a doubt the Relativity thing was an albatross for him. He’s probably never going to get over the debacle over MGP, a stirring, controversial film. But maybe now the healing can begin over that. That’s personal. Stop the accusations, please.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    I disagree his personal life has improved him or any of the enablers he’s closed himself off with have helped in any way whatsoever.

  • Maggie P.U.

    No, trust me….from dealing with the “2″ especially. Julia and Anonymous are one and the same. If you have time, go back to the previous thread and see what I mean.

  • HH

    So, we have King Leonidas going to Brazil to film a commercial from the Ford Focus? This just DRIPS with desperation. He should be worried and focused (NO PUN INTENDED) on himself an his life and not doing stupid things like this. I am sure he has enough money to take care of himself and this is nothing but something that will cause more trouble for him in some fashion.

  • AbbyRichter

    Dramatic much? LOL.
    HH, I think he’ll be fine. Have faith. He knows what he’s doing.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    There is a few ways of looking at this, and trust me, I have. It might, like the lazy-bones woman he’s with, be all the can handle. It also might reinvigorate him back to wanting to act again. He might feel this is too “Micky Mouse” (figure of speech) and want to dive back into purge acting once more.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Which is what? Making a Ford commercial in Brazil?

    I’ve more faith in his wanting more than this.

  • AbbyRichter

    Why is making another commercial a bad thing? Robert De Niro made an ad for a casino not long ago, with Leo D.

    IMO, he has a plan.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    What plan is that?

    Also, you made my point. When Butler gets to DeNiro or DeCaprio status then make all the commercials you want. I don’t understand it at all. Maybe because it is in Brazil and away from the claustrophobia and headaches of playing a different (harder) role he took it.

  • AbbyRichter

    I personally don’t know why he’s doing it. What he’ll be making for the ad (which in itself could be a big enough drawing card), but I have faith in Gerard.
    He’ll find the right path for himself. And if for now, that means doing this Ford ad, so be it.
    Of course better, juicier roles on the horizon would be “better”, in some respects, he is after all, an actor. They don’t always get what they want. The industry moves fast. Even Jennifer Lawrence has passed her hype phase.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    I just hate to sound disappointed. I should not be, it is something. It got offered, signed up for, it has to be good money or Alan wouldn’t be there. They’ll be doted over, welcomed and treated well. He can get his feet wet with something small and manageable, like the successful Hugo Boss commercial, so that’s a big step in the right direction. Producing it?

    Ford Mustang! A retrospect would be cool.

  • AbbyRichter

    Exactly. Also, it’s difficult to know precisely when he signed up for this. We don’t know his personal finances. Maybe he’s saving up for a project of his own.
    I mean he dropped a LOT of money for the torture scene in OHF. He’s not afraid to put his money where his heart is.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Which takes me back to Pop.1280. He was seen with the book last year. I’ve latched onto that for some reason, so want to feel you are on to something, but it’s a pipe dream as he seems completely distracted from working. Question. Is work her real competition?

  • AbbyRichter

    Distracted from what? Life? Work? Or all of the above?
    It’s difficult to fully assess his life, through the prism of the pap lens. He seems to have become more settled. Less going out. I don’t know if that’s due to his relationship with Morgan, or him, just trying to hide away for a while.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    You said he was an actor! I believe he has trouble balancing two things at once so trying to have a showmance to give the impression he’s settled is his primary focus and acting is losing because of it is how many see it.

    I’m still not crazy about seeing him look as faded and scrappy as his shoes. The eyes might be the window to the soul, but shoes are the window to just about everything else.

  • buttercream

    I had a big crush on him after 300, but now he is just nasty.

  • Sonia

    Mmm…looking good, Mr Butler! And not bloated either! He looks gorgeous in the pix of him arriving in Brazil too. Love the beard! Can’t wait to see this whole ad campaign.

  • Ismellarat

    IMO he rarely looks genuinely happy these days, and when he smiles it looks forced, or he looks somewhat annoyed. He’s nowhere near the happy-go-lucky Gerry of a couple of years ago.

  • logik69

    The main topic of conversation these days in Butler threads is accusing people of being other people. They want to chase people away because they think they own this place. All you get is stagnation and repetition rather than lively debate.

  • AbbyRichter

    I don’t think he’s ‘acting’ settled. I think he is more settled. Quieter. Now, I don’t know if that’s due to Morgan (my gut says no), or Gerard moving further away from hype for his own growth.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    You see settled but I see indifference.

  • HH

    Yes, but an ad campaign for a car he does not even drive? Makes absolutely NO sense to me. LR or Mercedes I could understand…but a focus? can you imagine Gerry driving around LA in a Ford Focus?

  • HH

    Got turned down by him again huh?

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    I have to somewhat agree with you. Granted I’ve seen the car (in an ad) and can see him pulling this off, but never owning one. Maybe it is because of his manly “regular guy” approachability that they want to make the car sexier so employed Gerry to do so?
