Gerard Butler Reveals That Playing the Hero Doesn't Help Him Back Home in Scotland!

Gerard Butler Reveals That Playing the Hero Doesn't Help Him Back Home in Scotland!

Gerard Butler might be a famous Hollywood actor, but that doesn’t mean much back at home!

The 47-year-old Scottish actor visited Late Night With Seth Meyers to promote his new film Geostorm on Thursday night (October 12) in New York City.

Seth asked Gerard if he was considered heroic back home in Scotland, and he revealed that his on-screen fame doesn’t exactly have the same effect in real life: “You can’t get away with much in Scotland,” he revealed.

Gerard also told a funny story about a girl who kept looking at him at a bar when he was first getting famous. Eventually, she came over to him and said “You know, I know your face from the telly – but I’m not gonna tell you that ’cause it’s going to give you a big f–king head!”

Watch Gerard tell the funny story below.

FYI: Gerard is wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo suit and shoes.

    Is This Gerard Butler or Billy Ray Cyrus?

    I wonder if Snow Ponies is still a go too, it should still be on, probably after AHF?

  • anotherguest

    Have any of these people ever responded to one of your posts to their fb or ig?

  • anotherguest

    LOL, who are you kidding? There’s nothing like flashing the vadge for charity, eh?

  • anotherguest

    In what way is it “clear”? Because he mentioned her name while telling a story that happened three years ago? He just vacationed all summer without her. They may be just friends now.

  • AbbyRichter

    I don’t hate her outfit…..for a twenty year old lol. That face :/
    She needs to so something with her hair. It’s so flat and lifeless.
    As I’ve said many times before, I respect that she hasn’t given into the plastic surgery trend, but she would really benefit from some botox and filler. And eating something. Just saying.

  • AbbyRichter

    Great fan photo and story. I love background information like this.

  • anotherguest

    He tries weird things, and goes too far with all of them, LOL.

  • AbbyRichter

    Occasionally ;)

  • AbbyRichter

    Good question Sonia. I don’t know and it’s not on IMDb.

  • AbbyRichter

    Good question Sonia. I don’t know and it’s not on IMDb.

  • anotherguest

    He hasn’t said a word about his present status. DIdn’t he also use the phrase “ex-girlfriend” or “last girlfriend” in one of this weeks’ stories?

  • AbbyRichter

    I agree AJ. I’ll be honest, if be happier if it wasn’t Morgan, but the fact that he’s finally acknowledging her is a good sign IMO.
    I don’t know anything for certain because it’s basically one sentence at the beginning of a press tour, so I’m going to wait.
    But IMO they’re together and he’s not shy about mentioning her.

  • Sonia

    This is JMO but I don’t see this as ‘opening up’, he was merely recounting a story (from 2014) of which she was a part of. It’s not like he professed his love for anyone, like those few things he said about MG before, for example. However, I do believe that, for someone like Butler putting the two words together (in different sentences) this is a big step, lol.
    I’m also skeptical cos that other story where he mentioned his ‘last girlfriend’ sounds like it was her cos, as far as I recall, it’s a new story so it can’t be MG? We’ll just have to stay tuned to see how this continuing saga unfolds.

  • AbbyRichter

    I agree that it’s a big step for him and that we don’t have a lot of information either lol.
    The girlfriend part of the story wasn’t really relevant. The context didn’t need him to mention her, for it to be funny. So that tells me that he went out of his way to talk about it. These stories are told to producers before he walks on stage. He had plenty of time to think about it and revise it.
    He mentioned her for a conscious reason. But it’s Butler. So his reasons could be to fuck with her. Let’s not forget that he can be a bit of douche too (skank comment, MG being picked up on the street)

  • anotherguest

    Ohmahgaaaawd, I’m sure he’ll be heading right back to Malibu, right? *squeeeel*

  • Sonia

    Not the first time but Butler fans commenting with numerous red hearts on a post about MB by one of her friends is one of the creepiest things I’ve ever seen.

  • Sonia

    Yes but that bit of the story made him sound more ‘adorable’ so of course he’s gonna mention it. He also does have foot-in-mouth disease, lol. But really, it’s the ‘last girifriend’ in that other story that’s throwing me off this point of view, it’s JMO, of course.

  • AJ

    Hey they stole someone’s line from here. I’m sorry I can’t remember who said it, but someone here called him BRC. lol.

  • AJ

    I actually don’t mind her hair here compared to how it is sometimes but I totally agree with you on the outfit. and eating something. lol :)

  • anotherguest

    Couldn’t agree more. The “Christy” and “Annalisa” types give me shivers. They’re one step from sitting outside her house.

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    Oh my, at least he had a sense of humor in this article. It could have been a lot worse.

  • AJ

    Well said. I’m totally with you on this one. And if they are together, clearly they have some issues but yes, finally, he’s not shy to bring her up. :)

  • AbbyRichter

    He’s just trying to keep us guessing ;)

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    She is very hard looking and that thing she has on for a skirt is thread bear. She has obsolutely no sense when it comes to clothes. She thinks she looks good. She must look at herself in those mirrors that distort the image.

  • Yeah Right

    She looks like a man. What in the hell is wrong with Gerry’s eyesight?

  • Yeah Right

    I’m the same way. I enjoy hearing about his private life but I’m glad to get the interviews and new pictures of him.

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    She looks like she is advertising for a walk on HW blvd. Her friend is in her fifties and she looks a whole lot better.

  • Yeah Right

    Good point Sonia!

  • Yeah Right

    I think you’re right Abby. He wants to keep his name out there and his fans talking about him.

  • Yeah Right

    They have an open relationship IMO. They are both getting what they want. Any other woman would not put up with him. They are off and on. Right now, they seem to be on.

  • Yeah Right

    Morgan has always dressed like a teenager and acts like one too. She’s fighting getting older like a mad dog. LOL

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    She looks like she has a Richard Nixon mask on. Well maybe that is her new Halloween costume for this year.

  • Yeah Right

    Maybe Morgan and this woman are lovers. Morgan has posed nude with other women. Maybe that’s what Gerry likes. LOL

  • Yeah Right

    Post of the day!!! LOL

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    The beach pics with her and the next set of London girl .

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    Yes and it was current because they mentioned burning man in it.

  • AJ

    Ha! Ha!

  • sassafrass

    That was a joke.

  • Guest

    He needs to go to Lourdes.

  • Guest

    She always looks horrible. She’s the ugliest GF in Hollywood.

  • anotherguest

    Maybe. Whatever it is or isn’t, the one thing there’s no doubt about is that she has no self-respect.

  • anotherguest

    What was a joke? The only way it wasn’t MB is if he was referring to Maddie, which is possible.

  • anotherguest

    It’s sad that she sexualizes herself even for a couple of charity events.

  • Maggie P.U.

    No shit, Soni….somethin bout the Morg….no wonder Gerry is not doin like hes done in the past in dumpin women….this one even looks like a widow ……her eyes reminds me of a sharks…no soul or depth…..

  • Maggie P.U.

    Would u believe they really existed? And some women today have copy catted? I did a paper on this? Not just men.

  • Maggie P.U.

    I can decide if it is her nose or the ongoing “Katie Jenner” look. Say it, Abs…she needs a complete and total work over. Overhaul…… Dogs dug it up so maybe give them a treat and put it back….rebuild the mold…smh

  • Maggie P.U.

    Nah…Nixon wore suits. That would require her putting clothes on

  • Maggie P.U.

    Well…at night u don’t see to well. Right? :)

  • Maggie P.U.

    Or a condom ad….one for birth control. “Don’t let this happen to u. Practice safe sax…….”
