    Hey GB, I love how grounded you are. So nice to see you out and about socializing and spreading good cheer! You are an amazing person! Don’t ever change! :)) Looking forward to seeing you in action next year! It’s been a long wait. Don’t ever do that again! lol!

    He never holds Morganstien like that and never has a smile when he’s with her either.

    New York has so much to offer and it is more him than LA as far as things to do and life style. He should seriously think about doing Broadway.

  • ForRealz

    She’s so pretty.

  • sassafrass

    Because the world really needs a musical version of Spring’s Awakening. At $500 a ticket.

  • sassafrass

    You have terrible instincts. In more ways than one.

  • terrible

    There are enough people who like musicals and are willing to pay the price for a show.

  • ForRealz

    Blah blah blah, Gerard shouldn’t be with Morgan. Blah blah blah, Gerard’s with someone else. Blah blah Blah. Blah blah blah Gerard’s got another gal elsewhere…

    Just once, I would like to hear of Butler’s abscess and not his personal life.

  • terrible

    Are all the actors deaf in this play?

  • sassafrass

    For musicalizing what should never have been musicalized, a play that was once a scandal, but isn’t any longer, because it is no longer relevant. A modern equivalent of Spring’s Awakening, focused on the chastity vow movement for example, might be a different thing. But the musical nerds might not show up for that one.

  • ForRealz

    Yes but what may not be relevant to you could be relevant to others. Just saying.

  • sassafrass

    In a world of ubiquitous porn, Spring’s Awakening is no longer relevant, which is why it’s been musicalized for an affluent musical-attending demographic.

  • AJ

    What a cute girl and GB, hilarious as usual!

  • ForRealz

    So by alteration, it’s become relevant to the affluent musical – attending demographic? (thanks for using ubiquitous, I like that word.)

  • adina

    I hope he will do Broadway and West End plays one day. He’ll be great in it. Matches his personality.

    When and where did you meet Guest? Why can’t you just let us have our opinions, sentiments, speculations without the aggressive bashing?

  • Julia
  • Julia

    No, some are hard of hearing. Ali Stroker is in a wheelchair. Last thread, lots about it.

  • Julia

    I posted a lot about it on the old thread. It is leaving Broadway the end of January and going on national tour. There is also a video there.

  • TeaCakes

    Why can’t Sassy have hers without YOUR aggressive bashing? We’re all entitled to our opinions and we all disagree…so what?

  • TeaCakes

    So far he doesn’t seem to have any interest in doing anything but bad action movies.

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

    What opinion? About a poster she doesn’t know offering her opinion about visuals we’ve all seen? She’s going after her like a piranha that’s why. Why bash others opinions when she rarely has her own? It makes me (somewhat) curious what went a long way to make her how torturing she is today?

    … and bad action women.

  • AJ

    I agree with you and I think NY suits GB’s personality for the most part but at the same time, sometimes it’s also nice to get away from all the chaos and hustle and bustle. Sometimes, it’s good to just stop and chillax for a while. He has often said that he is most happy when hiking in the mountains.

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

    Gerry grew up in what, a kind of small town? He gravitated to ‘the city’ and went to school, then went to university, played in a band at bars, then eventually bounded down country for London, another big city. I feel in big cities he can be himself more than in a small beach community where everybody knows your business. I am for his owning his words in articles that he’s bi-coastal. I agree he needs both coasts.

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

    It would be a positive creative stretch both physically and mentally requiring devotion, focus, and commitment.

  • ForRealz

    Always knew he was bi. (its a joke)

  • Julia

    LOL for sure it isn’t family holiday entertainment. I’m still glad he chose to see this show.
    Wonder if his tinnitus still bothers him. Might be the reason for some of those grumpy occasional looks. 50% hearing gone in R ear. But there are lots of stars and non-stars with the same handicap.
    Marlee Matlin is deaf in her L ear and only 20% hearing in her R.

  • TeaCakes

    It’s who he is :)

  • Julia

    Mitchell Communications Group was backstage at Spring Awakening last night. Coincidence or something else?

    No more pictures with fans on the streets of NY?

    Why Tel Aviv is Hollywood’s new billion dollar playground.
    And it’s not just the town’s execs who have embraced Tel Aviv — stars often go for work, then return for pleasure: Gerard Butler stays with friends there, as does Ryan Gosling

  • Julia

    Good question. Beats me but I believe they are an entity unto themselves. As a marketing group they have been around since 1995.
    I not saying there was a reason for MCG being there but wouldn’t you love to get inside GB’s head. I often think “lawyer and businessman” when I see some of his pictures. Seems the wheels are always turning. What’s he up to? lol

  • TeaCakes

    The person who wrote the article sounds as if he’s namedropping. I don’t recall Butler going there more than once but then I haven’t followed him every minute of his life LOL. I know he went once with Ariel and hit the beach there. Sometimes they drop names just to get people interested. At any rate, I’d go and not to see Butler. :)

  • Julia

    He was there in 2013 and spent the evening with the Israeli PM Netanyahu

    I don’t know how many times he has been there but he does have connections there.

    wonder what advice Bebe is giving GB.

  • Julia

    When was he there with Ariel? For Iceman? I was surprised that Avi Lerner was praising Tel Aviv. Israel hasn’t been all that kind to him.

  • lamcha

    I believe Paisley is a cathedral city but is certainly not huge.

  • lamcha

    But what she says is true.

  • TeaCakes

    I don’t know when he was there but it was with Ariel. There are pics somewhere of him on the beach with Ariel and an Israeli model.

  • AJ

    I’d go too and if I bumped into GB well that would just be the icing on the cake for me! lol!

  • Julia

    Can’t think lol. Can’t remember where Jewel of Nile was made? That was 2001 and Iceman around 2012? Somebody will have the answer. Or maybe just a random visit?

  • AJ

    Oh those good old days!!! Models in every country. lol! Now he’s grown up and more settled down or maybe not………we shall have to wait and see. lol!

  • Julia
  • AJ

    Holy Hotness! Thanks for making my Friday!!! lol!

  • Truth

    You are 100% correct.

  • haremgirl

    These are great pictures! I wonder if he is kicking the idea of doing a play again around in his handsome head…I, too, would love to see him in a play! Mr. Butler, live on stage, right before our eyes…WOW!
