Gerard Butler Hospitalized After Motorcycle Accident in L.A.

Gerard Butler is thankfully doing okay after he was hospitalized for a motorcycle accident in Los Angeles this weekend.

The 47-year-old actor, whose new movie Geostorm hits theaters this Friday, was reportedly run off the road when a car cut him off, according to TMZ.

Someone who witnessed the accident called 911 and Gerry was taken to the hospital by paramedics. There were no broken bones and he was treated for cuts and bruises.

While he is banged up, Gerard will be able to do press for Geostorm this week. He is scheduled to be a guest on The Talk on Friday.

Make sure to always wear a helmet if you are on a motorcycle!

    Before anyone else panics,(besides me…)
    The original article may be misleading, no date or time given, all the others just copied that story. I think the accident happened last week, before the NYC press. I think this is what the bandages were on his fingers,(and he was probably wearing gloves at the time). Perhaps one of the interviewers asked him about it last night, and his PR people jumped on it. Imo, JJ is stirring the PR pot. Yes he could have been seriously hurt, but wasn’t, and went to the hospital with only bruises and small cuts, for insurance. If you look closely at his waving, right hand in NYC, those are hospital bandages, and slightly worn, so at least a day old then. I thought when I first saw them in the first pic with the umbrella guy, that he had fallen from his bicycle. Very glad, feeling Blessed it was not more serious.

    Happens all of the time. It’s the price we pay for riding.
    Heal up quick Gerry! Road rash is a bitch!

    Now he’ll have a new story to tell. I predict the film will be major flop too.

  • GFW

    Despite it all he’s still the first person I think about daily.

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    Thank GOD he wasn’t seriously hurt. His costar Kaiwaily put his Harley up for sale recently and he said because of how cars don’t look for people riding their bikes and he wanted to be around for his son. I’m just happy his guardian angel was on the job, be safe Gerry

  • Yeah Right

    So glad it was only cuts and bruises. He will be sore for a few days. I don’t care how careful you are, motorbikes are very dangerous. We know Gerry is an experienced rider but you can still get hurt. We will hear the story this week when he does the Talk show.

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

    It wouldn’t be the first time we find out about something days later, i.e. 2011. Personally, I want to hear what the eyewitness saw. Being “run off the road” and “cut off by a car” sounds a tad ominous (to me) or simply factual to others. Also want a peek at the police report as well. Event may well explain the paranoid look in his eyes both arriving for shows in NYC as well as the softening seen at the “Magic” rock. So, yet another NDE, however ‘minor’ the alarm state induced by trauma becomes a gateway that tosses the psyche into trauma recognition. Those memories never relent. We adjust.

    I’ve been on a cycle that wiped out taking a slippery curve.
    Suspect he’ll need a new pair of sneakers. Kind of wonder if anyone scolded him at the hospital or any EMS staff did?

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

    Not all hurts or wounds are physical. Real curious about the road and surrounding conditions regarding this. He may have an abbreviated version funnied up for The Talk but a few conspiracy theories rush to mind beyond the positively appalling negative reasons LDB dredges up that it’s being used as PR. Why go there? I guess anything to obliterate her interior world. Analgesic fix to make it seem bearable.

  • cleo

    When is he supposed to appear on The Talk?

  • Sonia
  • https://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    I’m a tad confused. Are these photos pre accident? They look new. On closer look they’re a compilation of pics for the story.

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

    Bored Millennials with too much money and time on their hands. But it’s good press any way you look at it. Hum, from the jive leetspeak in comments it seems it’ll be Millennial’s first who’ll trash it or turn it into a cult either way. Thumbs up.

  • Yeah Right

    This Friday, the 20th.

  • Yeah Right

    The only thing that would have made it better, is if Gerry had been the one trying to get in the taxi. LOL

  • Pamela

    You better fuck off. This better never happen again. One would think after all was done to teach you a lesson, you’d get a life, but I see it’s not enough. I can fix that.

  • Pamela

    Sorry to hear about the wreck. Don’t let it shake you up.

  • AJ

    ITAWY! That would have made it more funny. :)

  • DorothyfromOz

    I hope he doesn’t have long term issues resulting from this wreck. Didn’t George Clooney end up with back issues because of the bicycle wreck he had? I know he got hooked on OxyContin and had to go to rehab to get off the pain killers.

  • Pamela

    Hey I am heading to Jamaica for my birthday in case some people want to show up and party.

    Not invited: Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander, or Harvey Weinstein. Nor Madalina Ghenea or Morgan Brown. You all can go fuck yourselves.

    He damaged his back making Syriana. His bike had nothing to do with it.

  • Pamela

    Feel free to repeat it all word for word. :)

  • Maggie P.U.

    Hes right. I lost my knee and have a TKR and I was just riding a bicycle. 3 years, hit 3 times. Third time about took me out. Literally

  • Maggie P.U.

    Alright, kid. U need to go to Lamaz classes just to learn how to breathe….:)

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    I remember the horrible accident you had and all the surgeries you went through to walk again. Glad you are still kicking it.

  • Pamela

    I hate them. I don’t like them. I want them to step on sharp legos.

  • The Noise in The Walls

    Glad he’s okay. It could of been a lot worse. It’s bad enough driving in cars. I’m hoping his movie Geostorm does well in the box office. The premiere is tonight. Good Luck Gerry ..

  • Speechless

    That is so true! It will be embellished to be certain. lol
    ETA
    I am hoping it isn’t a flop. I saw the advert’s for it a few times this weekend and it is getting good exposure. I just hope his accent isn’t cringe worthy.

  • LuvsDaBoy

    And it will be cringeworthy. LoL I think GEOSTORM will hold it’s own, but only for the first weekend. I was very surprised by the negative comments in the smaller markets. Usually they are overjoyed at a blockbuster, any sort of blockbuster. If just to be included. They actually spoke of too much CGI, a sucky script, and forgettable acting. And most of these audiences barely speak English. They never needed to… before. Cultured and demanding,…I Luvs it.

  • Speechless

    That is kinda sweet. And scary. lol

  • Speechless

    I am going to see it as soon as it comes out. I am REALLY looking forward to Thor Ragnaok.

  • LuvsDaBoy

    Don’t forget to share, plz.

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

    It’s truthful.
    He’s become a part of my daily life.
    Some of us go back a spell. He’s now a habit.

  • Blastie ☠

    You may be right. Us Mag is reporting that it happened more than a week ago. That’s totally lame if they’re using this for PR.

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

    I’m not too sure HW doesn’t make anything but flops. Series beat the crap out of 2-hour films by character building. When you see it, check reality at the door. It’s a fun ride type of film despite using the ‘cautionary tale’ sell.

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

    Desperate times call for desperate measures.

  • Pamela

    Desperation is so pathetic.

  • Blastie ☠

    I know how much his PR love the ‘brushes with death’ theme, but this is a bit much, even for them, lol.

  • Maggie P.U.

    Thanks. But, I reinjured the same knee. Not as easy to bounce back but it will be ok…

  • Blastie ☠

    ‘Taken to hospital to be checked, given a bandaid, and released’ would be more accurate, lol.

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

    Nothing else has worked ;). Only failed. Had it been serious we’d've known about it sooner.
    I wonder whose idea it was to share, Alan’s? Like I said, desperate times…

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    Lady you need to be put in a bubble for self preservation.

  • Blastie ☠

    Virtually everyone nowadays is a reporter with a camera. Playing games with details is risky. If they withheld this for over a week as a PR ploy, I hope it doesn’t backfire on them.

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

    Let’s hope not. He could have passed as any joker on a bike so no one paid attention. Its timing is suspect though. That’s all I can say. To be honest, I don’t it being used. It doesn’t bother me. It’s truthfulness solidifies use. Think he still gets nervous over premieres?
