Gerard Butler Freaks Out While Shaving His Beard Off - Watch Now!

Gerard Butler was forced to shave off his beard and he wasn’t too happy about it!

The 47-year-old actor had been growing his beard for almost a year but had to cut it for for his role in Hunter Killer.

Gerard took to his Instagram to document the experience, writing, “The shave in action. Consider myself trimmed, finally.”

In the video, Gerard wails as he shaves off the beard.

“I have to cut my hair, shave my beard to do some additional photography on Hunter Killer…I’m totally depressed…It’s gone! It’s gone!” Gerard can be heard saying.

Check out the hilarious video below…

    Exactly! And since when is getting into an accident a death wish? Especially one where someone hit you.

  • Speechless

    It has always completely mystified me (and cracked me up) how Gerard Butler seriously attacks the crazy fans. The over-the-top drama posted about a stupid movie is always WTF! worthy.
    Biblical proportions! I am so using that today.
    BIBLICAL! PROPORTIONS!
    LOL

    Some men can pull it off and look ruggedly rough and ready. Gerry? Not so much. The grey in it really does age him.
    The wrinkles do it too.

    Pmsl 😆

    From the DM article,( not comments);
    Based on the 2012 novel ‘Firing Point’, Gerry plays Captain Joe Glass, commanding officer of the USS Omaha, in ‘Hunter Killer”. Fans will surely be hoping the film lives up to such Butler classics as ‘Dracula 2000′, ‘Machine Gun Preacher’, and his unforgettable turn in ensemble outing ‘Movie 43′.
    ??????????? Sarcasm! Ha!

    Everyone who rides has a few near deaths. Get you back on and hope the next time isn’t worse.
    Gerry’s always just seem to be worse than any other rider. *snort*

  • Speechless

    Or knitting class.

  • Yeah Right

    I love the grey in his hair and beard. Let’s face it, the guy is so handsome no matter what his hair and beard looks like. lol

  • Speechless

    It’s the eyes. They are even more beautiful in real life. His personality is a force of nature and it shines through them.
    He is a gorgeous man.

  • Speechless

    Gun porn. I’m using that too!
    You are on a roll today Luvvy.

  • LuvsDaBoy

    Have you chosen to forget his purposely jumping in front of a bus? Or other things he has claimed to have done out of depression, even recently? He film’s a story of an idiot kid, who dies while doing something unnecessary and was called “suicidal” at the time, and tries to sell it, and himself as “heroic”? We had another idiot kid “pro-surfer” DIE surfing in the midst of Hurricane Irma. This is not WAR. This is stupid, selfish IDIOTS, risking life and limb, for a “high” and pandering notariety. Gerard goes Rock-climbing, and nearly hangs himself. He takes a helicopter ride over an active volcano, and a week later the same ride cost 6 people their lives when it crashed. He takes MG on a balloon ride, a week later a honeymoon couple burn to death on a similar ride. He goes ATV’ing, through a swamp, at dusk, with another rider who is very seriously injured. A local rider, who knew the trail. Did you see the video his friends posted of them riding motorcycles in LA? Speeding, weaving through traffic, …etc? Skydiving, helicopter diving, … let alone the insane “medical” treatments he has put his poor body through, after CHOOSING to risk chronic, and permanent disability… for his “career”? He says he always expected to die young, so why should he be responsible? It’s not like he had a family to think about…Ohh wait.
    He doesn’t “think”. And people just encourage him. I saw what several of you wrote about what if his career tanks. You would “go on”. You would just find someone else. If his career “tanks”, it would kill him. If his legions of phannies deserted him, because he isn’t “hot” any longer, it would kill him. He is a hypersensitive creature of extremes. He is also precious, but doesn’t act like it. All or Nothing. That is a very dangerous way to “live”. Sick fun for you to watch, like the Gladiators. “Ohh, the lion got him, tsk. …Next!”
    I value Gerard James Butler, the human being, infinitely more than that.

  • LuvsDaBoy

    It is the new term for it. Not original by me. Actually I believe Sass said it here first. It was also ” ….-porn” in several of the ‘GEOSTORM’ reviews.

  • Maggie P.U.

    Me, not to long. Not to short. Bit of shadow

  • LuvsDaBoy

    Not about the movie, about the consequences of that movie, in terms of his career, and idiots who may copy the action.

  • sassafrass

    Does he still have any?

  • AJ

    I have not forgotten that story but he said that was a bad time in his life when he was drinking heavily. That’s when he also decided to stop drinking. I think it was his wake-up call at the same time. What has he claimed to have done out of depression recently?
    Sorry I don’t see it your way. He’s a movie star. He makes movies. Every movie he makes can’t be about rainbows and unicorns or about a message and I really don’t think he puts as much thought into what movies he’s making/choosing as you do. I think he reads a script and if it sounds interesting, he can see himself playing the role and he thinks it will make money, he goes for it. Just like most actors/actresses. If he worries about all the things you mention, he would never make a movie.
    Yes, in case you haven’t noticed, learned, GB loves adventure and he’s a risk taker. That’s who he is and FYI, he’s not the only one. There are many people out there like that. I’m sorry LDB, GB is just not your guy. This man you want, is not GB. You should move on.
    I never heard that being said. Not me. I will always follow GB no matter what happens to his career as I like both the man and the actor.
    The difference between you and me is, while I don’t want anything bad to happen to GB (or anyone I admire for that matter) and I feel bad for him when he gets hurt, I accept him for who he is and I know that you can’t expect someone to stop living the life the way they love to live it just because it scares the hell out of you or because you don’t want anything bad to happen to him. You wouldn’t survive a day with GB. Seriously, why do you follow a person who is the opposite of everything you like and believe in? It makes no sense. Plus, I’m sorry you are way too deep/involved/obsessed over a guy who is not even part of your life and never will be. If you are like this over a celebrity that you don’t even know or have never met, what are you like with the people in your real life?
    You talk like someone who is depressed. Depressed people turn everything into a tragedy/misery. I hope you are okay. I don’t wish that on anyone.

    Two dangerous, sharp needles.

  • Yeah Right

    Very, very well said AJ.

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    Great post. She just wants this man to live in a bubble of her making and he is not or ever will be that type of person. There is more violence in the daily news which is real life not story telling. She wouldn’t even be able to watch HTYYD because it has violence in it. Shame on animated characters.

  • Yeah Right

    I agree. I can’t think of one Gerry movie that doesn’t have something LDB would object to. The films would either have violence, drugs, sex, dishonesty, etc. These are just films, not what Gerry’s life is about.

  • AbbyRichter

    But why are you holding him accountable for other people’s actions?
    I don’t understand your view here Luvs. Gerard makes movies. He’s not responsible for the state of society.
    If you personally don’t like gun violence, then don’t buy a ticket. Why should the world miss out on this film because 1 person out of 100,000,000 may use it as excuse to commit a crime.
    Do you want to live in a world of just Disney movies?

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    I’m surprised she isn’t blaming him for all the violence in the Bible.

  • Speechless

    I hope he stars as Satan in a movie called “I am DAMNED!”
    That otta get a shitload of crazy posts from Luvs.

  • AJ

    Thank you. Very true Wondering. If I’m not mistaken, I thought she has said that she has kids. So what is she going to do, never let her kids drive, ride a bike or take a balloon ride if they want too because of what could happen. She’s in for a rude awakening if that’s what she thinks. Look I understand her concern for GB, it worries/scares me too when he puts himself in danger but the way she talks it sounds like she is disgusted in him and he should be ashamed of himself. That’s not concern. That’s called being judgmental. Like, hey I don’t like the way you do things so that makes you a bad person. That’s the part that bothers me. Just like she put him down for not having kids.

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    You’re back, lol.

  • AJ

    IKR. And GB is not the only actor to make a movie with violence in it. Exactly, they are just movies. Movies he didn’t even write.

  • http://disqus.com Wondering

    She has the worst case of tunnel vision. If these are her views on everything it is sad to say her children will be eaten alive in the real world.

  • AJ

    Exactly. It’s very close minded. She instills her virtues on him and us.
    That’s not fair. He’s not responsible for everything that happens in the world and just cause he doesn’t live his life according to the rules and regulations of LDB, does not make him a bad person or us bad people because we enjoy him the way he is.

    ” That shave and haircut took about 5 yrs off his face.”
    Yeeees, but it didn`t bring him optically back to his awsome lookings at being 42…..

  • Speechless

    Ya know….
    In my workplace……whenever you see ‘FYI’ it means:
    Fuck You Intensely
    Gerard Butler would approve.
    Just sayin’!
    *snicker*

    Ive heard from those who’ve met him. Those eyes. He is a big dude. And his smell, Joe Malone (or something like that)

  • Maggie P.U.

    ‘GEOSTORM’ HAS A SURPRISINGLY CLEAR PATH TO CULT CLASSIC STATUS
    https://filmschoolrejects.com/geostorm-cult-classic/

  • Sonia

    I’ll ask you this again since you didn’t reply the last time – what was the last Gerard Butler movie you actually watched?? You seem to disapprove of every movie he’s done in the 3+ years I’ve been reading your posts here.

  • Sonia

    DM has been taking the piss out of him for a long time…

  • Sonia

    ‘legions of phannies’??
    They don’t exist anymore. Perhaps the 10 or so who show up wherever he’s making an appearance who he seems to be annoyed to see half the time but acts professional and lovely to them cos he has to (and I don’t blame him).

  • Sonia

    DOT reshoots. Sorry if posted before, I don’t recall seeing it…

    Gerry is going to have the last laugh.

  • AbbyRichter

    I wonder if Morgan is helping him lift weights.
    You know, to be ‘supportive’ :P

  • Sonia

    I actually think he looks older clean shaven. Fine, not the heavy beard maybe (even if the hobo look is very sexy on him) but the middle one from his ‘three stages’ photo? :)

  • Maggie P.U.

    Give it time. She’ll post it somewhere…or have it in a mag

  • Sonia

    Perhaps she buys him a support bra when he puts on weight and his moobs are showing? We don’t want Moobs Have Fallen, do we?

  • Yeah Right

    You mean like the chubby red-haired one? lol

  • Maggie P.U.

    Try again if trying to be funny. Or even sarcastic.
