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!

    I could be wrong but at the beginning as they begin to walk it seems to me like he turns back to her and almost like he’s offering his hand or checking to see if she is coming and to me she appeared distracted by the other person next to her and it looked like he lost his patience or got pissed and said well screw you then I’m out and then he moved ahead. I just wonder why he turned back but the bottom line is she was not by his side, she didn’t walk the carpet, he didn’t mention her and no photos. Again. At least this time she was smart and brought her own entourage so she wouldn’t be lost and hanging around all by herself.

    Ive always said he doesn’t or didn’t invite her. Big dif if he did….And as for planning to do anything together….no again. Body language and expressions don’t lie. I say also they both know the same people and someone is telling her what he does, when etc. Bam. She shows up

  • Maggie P.U.

    Yes.

  • Pamela

    Jezebel was eaten alive by dogs. Fuck off Harvey

  • AbbyRichter

    IMO, I don’t think he would have given up that easily if he wanted her to walk with him. Like he would have stopped for a second and made sure she caught up. And the last part of the video, it’s like she’s trying to catch up, so maybe you’re right.

  • Sonia

    JMO but it’s too quick of a glance back to seem like he was going to take her with him, if you know what I mean. Amy looked like she was shuffling them forward too so it seemed more like they were too slow behind hm (they didn’t seem to have any sense of urgency) and he was like come on, all of you. Also, this was kinda before walking onto the carpet so if he wanted to walk with her, he would’ve checked that she was beside him from the start or when they were just going on to the carpet area.
    Also, that looks like her friend Diane with her? I could be wrong but if she brought her friend for this part of the ‘journey’ surely she knew she wasn’t going to walk with him?

  • AJ

    No, I don’t think I’m right. Just talking out loud and you are right, if that were the case, he would not have given up so easily. I think like you said, she was expecting to walk that carpet with him and for some reason she got left behind/ditched. I just wonder why he turned around. Can’t think of any reason why he would do that. Like what was the point of that? I know I said it was smart of her to bring her own entourage with her this time but at the same time, isn’t this supposed to be your BF’s big night? Shouldn’t the night be about him? I don’t know maybe I’m knit picking here. lol.

    Was he holding himself up by the rail? I guess to take pressure off The Foot. Garlic is an natural anti-inflammatory. And wait for it, you can’t OD on it. It isn’t harmful. Not expensive. What isn’t used passes through us.

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

    Dear, he is anything but a gentleman with her. I really wish he’d self-interrogate himself to a point that he admits his rage and anger and gets some help sorting that out. He’s the only one standing (pun intended) in his way.

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

    Yes. It’s a seesaw and this time he’s the one with all the power. Until he gets horny.

  • Sonia

    “Twenty steps to the carpet.”
    That should be the title of her autobiography, lol.

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

    IF he cared one iota he wouldn’t have left her behind in the dust on her own. He would have been seen easing to a group to stay there with Alan or whatever can be done in these circumstances. I think it’s why he prefers to be ‘single’ at premiere time. Women are hard work at all times esp then. Add to that he’s ashamed of her and himself being with her.

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

    Trouble is when alone she spins it to convince herself all this is enough. That he truly cares (deep down) and can’t show it. Or worst yet, will eventually when he realizes she’s the one who can save him. Nobody saves anyone. We save ourselves by doing the hard work because it’s always worth it.

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

    It’s all for the record books to rewrite history to create an altered reality. He’ll put up with it because he needs this do-over badly.

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

    Daily. At least by the bored lazy bum.
    Him? He’s got his Twitter and Facebook and IG accounts to, ohm, keep updated ;) so yeah, he reads their comments. Why not?

  • Speechless

    uh….torn meniscus……fractured foot….I am calling bullshit on it.
    You don’t prance around the red carpet with those injuries.
    Sorry, Gerry, but I think you are exaggerating.

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

    Enough to fly him home and stay there until his foot is better and be in better company. Anything he can do here he can do there.

    Interesting. A buffer/coping method for both.

  • Yeah Right

    Have you ever had a torn meniscus? or known someone who had one? I think you are right. A torn menicus is very painful and sometimes requires surgery. No way he could have walked around or danced around like in one video. I’m just glad his injuries were not worse than they could have been.

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

    That pretty much nails it. She’s in a holographic fantasy that seems very real. At the end of the adventures, however, the routine of being Morgan Brown, loser, returns as do all her many, many, many, problems.

    If this was her coming out party why would she have friends with her, she would be stuck to Gerry like glue and no other distractions. It doesn’t even come off like a date. That is her friend Diana.

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

    Don’t give the dumb woman ideas. It’s one of his biggest fears and why they are not intimate on any level but maybe every now and then physically. She knows how he likes his pizza. Wow, you know? Wow! (sarcasm)

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

    OMG did he do his fairy dance? Like you’ll respond. Note to self: go back through the old thread and watch videos. Yeah, Gerry ups the degrees of everything with extreme words. Always has.

    More like sprains and tears that need attention. I suspect they wrapped his foot, he wore larger shoes, took something more than Aleve and stayed off his feet best he could.

    I think she did come in a different car driven by Freddy. I think Gerry, Amy and Alan came together.

  • Yeah Right

    Ok Gerry, practice what you preach. Tell us the truth so we won’t have to speculate so much!

    I have had one. Tore is skiing. There was no walking around for a couple of weeks. And FIVE fractured bones in a foot? He’d be in a boot at the least….a cast more than likely.
    Oh Gerry. You just need a little bit a loving attention. Dump the butterface and take me!!!

  • AJ

    OMG! Post of the day!
    I thought the exact same thing when I heard him say that. lol.

  • Speechless

    Yup. And as time goes on the accident will get worse. Gotta love him. An actor to the core.

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    Getting your gushing back, good girl.😃

  • Speechless

    *blushing* Red carpet appearances and new movies coming out do it every time. hehe

  • Speechless

    Bravo! Bravissimo!

  • Yeah Right

    It would be so easy for him to set the record straight. I don’t know why he won’t. Maybe he loves all the speculation. LOL

    Gerry’s there with his soul mate. It’s not M2.

    Alan? lol

    Darlings, all of you, you couldn’t handle the truth. I know it. He knows it. That’s why we get the show called “Parks & Recreation.”

    I didn’t see Freddy? Was he there?

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

    ROTFLMAO

  • AJ

    Agreed. Bringing your friends with you or your own group, makes it come across…what is the word I’m looking for? Like less special.
