    So they had a screening in LA too, after the premiere in Tel Aviv, lol. Saw some videos on IG earlier of the screening but none of him. Butler looks goooood! I love his outfit. This is what many of us mean by ‘he cleans up well when he has to’ so he’s forgiven for the occasional sloppiness during his downtime, IMO. And no fangirl in sight (so far)?

  • Sonia
  • AJ

    You know what I don’t mind “the point”. lol Everyone can have a signature move and the “point works” for him. I love this pic too! This is a drop your panties look/photo for me. lol

  • AJ

    Exactly. Smart move imo. He has so much more presence without the gushing fangirl next to him. I wish GB would be on a series. Maybe in five years from now when he starts that family of his. lol.
    Why does Ariel look so serious?

  • Sonia

    “This is a drop your panties look/photo for me. lol”
    Oh totally! He can point any appendage at me, anytime! 👀😉🙃
    I don’t mind this type of posing either, actually many other celebs do it too, pointing or thumbs up or whatever. It gets boring when you’ve been posing for years, just to stand there so many of them get creative. I don’t mind that salute thing he does either, it’s fun when doing promo or posing with fans but I think doing it during his downtime with his friends/gf, as he has done in the past, is a bit cringe, lol.

  • Wondering

    He was smart enough to realize this wasn’t about her. They would have turned that carpet away from Ariel and his red carpet moment. Gerry must have a permanent case of jet lag. He must run on fumes.

  • Sonia

    You know, when the premiere was going on, I saw on IG that Maurice was there and I wondered to myself if Butler was there too then I thought perhaps not cos him being there might upstage Ariel and this was his night. But nice to see he went to support his friend. I haven’t seen any official photos so far of Ariel and Vica either, even though she was there. Perhaps they decided to keep the whole thing just about the movie, which is the way it should be, IMO. Ariel seems to have aged a lot lately, must be all the promo he’s doing for this movie and the new baby too.

  • Wondering

    Vica is classy and she doesn’t have to act like a fangirl to be noticed. She knows this was Ariel’s time to shine. Ariel looks a little nervous to me. It has to get a lot of play on Netflix. Good for him. Maybe the baby is keeping him up at night. I saw a pic of him holding her with a big grin on his face.

  • AJ

    ITAWY! Very true.

  • Sunkist

    Some may think he looks fine and sexy in these pics. I don’t understand that. To me he is dressed inappropriately for an industry red carpet event. He isn’t dressed in such a way as to not draw attention to himself, quite the opposite. Everyone else is in cocktail atire. It shows respect for the film, it’s very serious and controversial subject matter, and the accomplishment of his dear friend. He looks slovenly. I realize those shoes/sneakers are probably to help his sciatica, but there are orthopedic insoles you can put in dress shoes, and manage with for a few hours certainly. He would have looked world’s better in even decent pants and a nice dress shirt. He looks exhausted again. The smokers rings are back. If he has such trouble sleeping, at least take some Pedialyte so he doesn’t look so pruney. Moisturizers are not hydrating to your body. Again, this was a professional event. Industry people are watching. Industry people who are casting their next projects.

  • Wondering

    Ariel has a jacket on with a shirt and no tie opened at the neck. It doesn’t look like anybody showed up overly dressed. Maybe Gerry just wanted to downplay his look. I am glad he finally attended something without the bs attached to it. It seemed more of a casual event then a big HW premiere.

  • Sunkist

    I hear you. It was a small, low key event, daytime. Cocktail attire is completely appropriate. Ariel is not dressed in cut khakis, an old sweatshirt, and sneakers. This is not just “casual”. He is dressed here in the same “style” so many here vilify his “gf” for wearing. Keeping in mind he is the spokesmodel for lucrative Olymp, Dudalina, Festina, and other campaigns, based on his “industry image”. Imo, he’s not even half trying here. It would have been beneficial PR for his projects too.

  • Wondering

    I don’t like any pants with holes in them regardless if they are the recent fad. I like classic clothes. My friends mom always told us if your hair is neatly styled and you have good shoes on this is what people notice first about you. I have to admit I looked at Gerry’s shoes to see if the tongue was hanging out.

  • Wondering

    This really wasn’t about him and if he was representing campaigns he would have been dressed for them. She is a slob regardless what she wears. There is a difference.

  • ModR8ths

    Anon is still not working, and I don’t know if you’ll see this, but wanted to say thank you to you and to YR for your help in trying to sort this out. I really appreciate the help. Thank you.

  • Sunkist

    Darn. But, like I said, it might just be they are starting to work on it this morning. I hope so. Hang in there. You are more than welcome.

  • Sunkist

    I understand he doesn’t want to draw attention to himself, at the expense of the film’s cast and director. But, this is an industry event, not a private screening. The very reason he is there, on the red carpet, with professional photographers on a press line, is so he will be Noticed, and bring publicity to this film. His “industry image” is not just from events like this, but overall media coverage. This is how PR firms work. If he is percieved as someone who is careless about his appearance, generally speaking, it will effect how his fashion campaigns are received. It has a cascade effect on the rest of his career. And he knows it, and Alan knows it. If he looked good, even at something like this, he would get mainstream coverage. His people pushed the Open pics. In nearly all of the major markets, he was complete ignored. When he is ignored, due to disrespect, his films will be received the same way. There is a math to it.

  • Nox

    Toby Kebbell was there! I bet he and Butler had fun. I wish they’d do another movie together. Both were great in RocknRolla.

  • Wondering

    I don’t think it is about his appearance, it’s about the cheesy bs pr he goes to stay in the public eye. When he goes that route then his appearance is noticed as sloppy. The pr bs is what keeps him out of the mainstream. The more he does it the less interested people are with him or you wouldn’t get the comments about he is only doing the pap strolls because he has a movie coming out. PR FAILURE.

    I may have never said this so I unfortunately need to say it here. I am sorry for any hurt feelings this will incur.

    I am not in any way shape or form romantically interested in Gerard Butler. He’s a great guy, he’d be a great friend, but no matter what happens in my life, he and I will not be dating. Ever. I just don’t have those feelings. I’m sure he’s going to find the right one for him and settle down soon and start that family he always wants.

    Any person who thinks that they are romantically involved with me who either manipulate or spread rumors will not be someone I trust or want to have an intimate relationship with. I’m sorry. Brad and I have NOT met in real life but he’s NEVER manipulated me or spread rumors about me ever. That’s why he’s different. I am not depressed. Indeed, if you knew how good my life is going, you’d not be saying this. But you are not close to me for me to share good news about myself cause I can’t trust you or others.
    Again, I am sorry if I hurt anyone’s feelings but it’s my truth. If you and others really cared about me, I wouldn’t have had to post this.

    You are just a special kind of crazy nutter, aren’t you hon…

  • Nox

    I wonder what change in his decision to keep his private life private. It’s so weird.

  • Pamela

    Well, you don’t have to worry about me jumping you for a star fucking ride.You know, standards and such.

    I avoid those at all costs except for Brad Cooper. He gets a pass.

  • Nox

    What is going through your mind when you post nonsense like this? You really need to up the meds.

  • Pamela

    Is there a med called jerkbegone? You may be right. Or one called damnnotinterestedinyou ?

    I’ll ask my psychologist.

  • Nox

    okay. You do that.

  • Pamela

    Sounds good. One of these days someone is going to be just as hateful to you as you are to other people and it’s going to crush you.

    For all the constant slagging of Morgan, Gerry was showing up for events dressed like a slob for years, He has often looked like he picked up whatever was still clean on the floor. .

    He has a nice collection of suits which he only pulls out for very special events or the stylists hired make him wear. Of course the suits probably range in sizes..

    And he didn’t need to wear a suit to look like he cared about a special night for one of his best friends supposedly.

    Thanks, I recognized him but didn’t remember his name. RnR was so much fun to watch. Gerry dancing killed me.

    Who knows but I wish he would have picked someone who wasn’t so hard on the eyes. They both have aged since dating. Usually a happy relationship enhances the look doesn’t take away from it. He used to stroll around HW and being papped where he didn’t look like a homeless person. These last years have taken on a disheveled look for him. She looks like a Mexican jumping bean around him.

    Ariel always hits the right fashion note but he was raised in a wealthy family.

    I will argue with you about Butler not looking homeless. He’s done this for a decade from time to time. Hobo Butler always came out when he wasn’t promoting something. But, the aging part….it’s hard to watch. I agree with you….happy couples usually compliment each other and happiness usually leads to a healthier lifestyle. Their life style seems to be one manic pap stroll after another. She just seems so out of control to me. From her clothes to the JoL face. The weird PDA’s and posing. It’s all a mystery to me.

    Don’t even get me started with men wearing holie clothes. It’s so 20 something. Same with the stupid matching wooden jewelry. What.The.Hell.

  • Nox

    Vroooom Vroooom Vroooom. Ariel used to post on IMDb. Always funny and a class act. He always called Butler ‘bro’.

  • Nox

    I watch it at least once a year. It’s the only movie that Butler has made that my beloved bastard husband will watch.

  • Nox

    Totally agree with you. He’s done this for a decade.

  • Wondering

    It is not just about his clothes, it is about poor movie choices which may only have been offered to him. It is how he is perceived as an actor. I think Keeper’s may be an eye opener for him if he kills the role. That is what he needs something different than just gun toting. I like his action movies but I would love him to do a dramatic role that shows more of a range for him.

  • Wondering

    You’re a nut!!

  • Wondering

    I think Ariel looks just fine. He looks pulled together even in jeans and tee’s.

  • Yeah Right

    I disagree Sunkist. Times have changed in Hollyweird. Cut jeans, holey t-shirts, unkept hair seem to be the norm. We know Gerry can clean up and shame everyone else with his style and good looks. I think dressing up is really not required anymore at premieres.

  • Yeah Right

    Can you imagine MB standing beside Ariel’s gf? Talk about beauty and the beast. lol

  • Wondering

    She always looks like she is forcing herself to be in a pic even when his back is to her. She also seems loud. Yeah I do remember some sweaty pics of him from time to time in the past that didn’t look like it was weather related.

  • Wondering

    I think he is a trinket jewelry wearer rather than nice pieces. He used to wear some metal pieces in the past that were very nice. He seemed to prefer silver.
