Gerard Butler Fractured Five Bones in Foot in Motorcycle Accident

Gerard Butler Fractured Five Bones in Foot in Motorcycle Accident

Gerard Butler is recounting what happened when he got in a motorcycle accident over the weekend, and it sounds extremely painful though he’s assuring everyone he’ll be totally fine.

“I was going along the road doing my thing and this lady decided to go from parked on the other side of the road to an illegal U-Turn and went right in front of me. I smacked the car, went flying through the air and did a somersault and landed and it hurt a bit,” the 47-year-old actor told ET. “So I’m sitting down and my feet are killing me and my shoes are ripped and [one guy asks], ‘So, how’s it all goin’?’ And I [tried to say], ‘Well I’m supposed to be doing an action movie in about three weeks.’”

“I have five fractures in my right foot alone [and] a bunch of stupid stuff, a torn meniscus, but I’ll be fine,” Gerard added.

We hope Gerard has a speedy recovery!

    Just to be on the safe side, he should be in a moon boot at least.
    - Get well soon !

    Get Well Soon Gerry <3

    … because he wasn’t wearing leather boots. Maybe now, darling?
    It’s not easy, but motorcycle drivers have to drive far more defensively than cars. Much like bicyclists always expecting the unexpected. Sorry to hear this happened, but wear leather, please.

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

    Some hard-headed men need to learn the hard way.

  • AbbyRichter

    God he must live on pain meds. Five fractures and he’s walking fine at the premiere. His worth ethic is amazing.
    Didn’t he say that the crash made him appreciate how precious life is?
    Could winter bring Gerard a new perspective?

  • Nicole

    So get well soon and take care of yourself Gerry!❤️❤️❤️

  • AbbyRichter

    His shoes can’t have been for the road because they tore up during the crash. Does he know he got money now? Lol.

  • Yeah Right

    He would have to be on pain meds if he was walking around in dress shoes with a fractured foot.

  • AbbyRichter

    He hides it well and I agree, those shoes looked tight.

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

    It isn’t about money. It’s about being able to feel. Being in control. I get it. But once you spin out like this it hits you hard just why bikers where boots. It’s like when you wear flip-flops on a bicycle? Not wise. You can do it, but all it takes is one mishap and you will think twice about doing it again. This said, I’m certain he doesn’t want any scolding or blaming. But then he’s blaming the woman isn’t he? That said, I don’t know if anyone can be so there as to predict what anyone on Earth can do. I feel sorry for him. He needs to keep his beautiful feet up. He said it himself, he’s a new action film to start working on in 3 weeks. Even more reason to be super tuned into driving, walking, doing everything you do.

  • Sonia

    Slightly off topic but I’m surprised his mate Ross King hasn’t tweeted a single thing about this movie. He usually pimps every movie Butler’s in and teases fans with clips or bits of info before the main broadcast. Could they have fallen out, lol.

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

    Maybe there’s trouble in paradise?

  • AJ

    He talks about the accident:

    Just like GB to downplay it.

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

    My guess is he left the vehicle to the short ‘red’ carpet. Stayed put during interviews… this was not the Oscars, and sat through the movie and left pronto after going their separate ways. He, home wherever that is, to lurk online reading comments. ;) Her? Zzzzz

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

    … and then put up a Just Jared thread. (laughs)

  • AJ

    lol. That’s true.

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

    Even this, and vets will recognize it, is low energy these days…

    I think he’s wearing a larger sized shoe. LOL

  • AbbyRichter

    IMO Morgan and Gerry obviously read comments here. No like daily but a couple of times a year.
    She’s probably embarrassed. Getting dressed up to sit in a car, stand behind others, sit in the dark to watch a movie, and sit in the car again to go home.
    Honey, we call that Wednesday night.

  • Sprite

    Some of these mbikes look small for him, sure they are stylish..

  • Maggie P.U.

    Are possibly what seems to not be an assumption. RK has a busy schedule also

  • AbbyRichter

    I hope he learns from this. There’s a lot on the line if he injures himself. He’s a producer and lead in the next movie. A few weeks off if he hurts himself will push nearly everything back.

  • Maggie P.U.

    SHe had her kid and friend with other kids…I say as I am sure happens often, she drove herself

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

    OMG you just hit on something others said about her being grumpy. The selfish bitch was pissed he couldn’t drape her over his arm and walk her about like a prize! As if.

  • AbbyRichter

    Is Gerry only doing that talk show in the UK? Maybe that’s why King is not tweeting? Gerard isn’t doing any interviews with him.

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

    They were her shield. She knew ahead of time he’d have no time for her, based on past experience(s) and the fact he’s ashamed of himself, esp if his feet hurt. He was there to work. I think in her head she spins everything like she’s this competent loving caring co-partner in his life. Fantasy addiction deluxe.

  • Maggie P.U.

    Agree, good point. To close of friends to have a “falling out” just because both have not been seen together lately

  • AbbyRichter

    That’s interesting. He could have totally walked the carpet with her if he wanted to.

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

    The trouble with Butler is his restlessness. His need to buck the system, whatever, and do what he wants when he wants. He’s going to pay for that dearly if he doesn’t start… drinking camomile tea and get into therapy.

  • Maggie P.U.

    She had the same group of people when she showed up at the restaraunt that day to chase Gerry. It was the one where she wore the pink dress. The lady had the kids and holding a dog. Morg as usual was in front….u could tell when all of them met Gerry as he was walking out he was pissed. In another pic u can see her driving past him as he is in front of the place looking at his phone. She is a stalker…and seems to always be where he is

  • Maggie P.U.

    Evident he didn’t nor even want her there

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

    It’s about control. She needs to count her blessings. She was there. He allowed it. But he looked back at her like he thought she’d trip over her two big left feet. Wow oh wow.

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

    … and tickets were free. How rich stay rich.

  • AbbyRichter

    I’ll never understand it. Why even bother to invite her, her friends, all these kids and then ditch her like 20 steps from the carpet.
    IMO the way she looked angry, I think they had planned to walk together and he totally changed his mind last minute. If she knew for sure that she wouldn’t walk the carpet, she wouldn’t be so angry.

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

    Yes they read comments here. Why else have “It wasn’t my fault and I really, really, really did have an accident and hurt myself and here’s how” thread? Too bad because it distracts from the premiere.

  • AbbyRichter

    JJ has always been kind to his PR

  • AJ

    She should be embarrassed but if she was embarrassed, she would have put a stop to this relationship/arrangement or whatever you want to call it a long time ago. She just continues to look more and more foolish in all of this.

  • AbbyRichter

    Damn girl. You tell it like it is lol.
    That’s very accurate.

  • AJ

    lol.

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

    It’s about control. It’s not a relationship-relationship. He’s not that into her. A prop.

  • Sonia

    Lol, if that initial boob grab/suck didn’t embarrass her, why would walking behind him like a member of staff/hanger-on have any effect?

  • Yeah Right

    She’s not embarrassed, she’s proud because she is getting the attention she craves. The woman has no self-respect. She uses anything including her child to be seen with Gerry. I’m surprised he can’t see that or even puts up with it.

  • AbbyRichter

    Like a game? He had to show who was in control?

  • AbbyRichter

    Lol.
    “Member of staff”

    *dead*

  • Sonia

    Only the Graham Norton show has been publicised so far. Ross usually does the interviews in LA but reports for UK TV (usually This Morning/Lorraine). Maybe cos Butler’s going to the UK he will personally appear on the show but he’s not been announced as a guest anywhere else so far. And he’s due to appear on a show in LA on Friday so I think it’ll be a very quick trip to London.

  • AbbyRichter

    I wonder how many air miles he has. Jealous of that.

  • Sonia

    But that’s what she looked like, lol. Just like at TIFF, given the same ‘treatment’ as Amy, for example (although he actually had more interaction with Amy than with her).

  • AbbyRichter

    It was super weird. If I didn’t know that was Morgan, it’s easy to assume that she’s a nobody worker from the studio.
    Twenty steps to the carpet. That’s all it takes lol.

  • Yeah Right

    I think he invited her so he wouldn’t have to put up with another meltdown. Once she got there, he ditched her.
