  1. He would have been nearly 26 on Halloween in 1995 -- and didn't he get fired as a trainee lawyer that year? I wonder if this is shortly before he hopped on his motorbike and headed for London. Facebook can make a whole lot of skeletons pop out of the closet and into public view. I wonder how many celebrities are gritting their teeth waiting for it to happen. (Not that this is much more than a harmless blast from the past, of course. It's fun to see how little Gerry's looks have changed since then.)
  2. Leave it to a Scotsman to pay $75,000 to kiss a Haggis!
  3. Most days this week: Ellen Access Hollywood Once a night during prime time David Letterman or Craig Ferguson, alternating They're everywhere!
  4. I thought he had to at least be one of his doubles because there is something similar about them. If that's his half-brother, nice gene pool, Butlers.
  5. Oh, well. The real White House is faced with wood cut to look like bricks. So is Mount Vernon. Builders have been "styling" materials at hand for effect since architecture began. Theater and the movies borrowed the idea, they didn't invent it.
  6. The same old indies are languishing in our local arthouses, I've noticed, even when they're also showing at AMC Select locations (which are more convenient for movie goers, in multiplexes). Makes you wonder about the distribution system: are they just milking the nominated films for as much money as possible before putting in new ones? (My guess: of course.) There were 12 people watching "The Artist" on a Saturday night when I saw it in Northern Virginia. And it deserves to be seen, IMO. But it's not selling tickets (because it's silent, probably). I remember when "The Hurt Locker" opened. It drew small crowds and was on DVD before it won Best Picture. Didn't hurt its critical stance but didn't waste theater space either. (I just saw it last weekend, finally.) Things have apparently changed. But why?
  7. He looks to me like he's wearing an Eddie Vedder grunge disguise. He must have been tired. He hasn't had much time off and it's a long flight. Hopefully he's gotten some rest by now and is enjoying family time while he recharges his batteries.
  8. Gulp. That was the FIRST scene they filmed? Talk about out of the frying pan and into the fire! (Won't say more due to spoilers but this is a great article and I agree with the sentiments expressed. )
  9. I've got confirmed tickets from my flex pass to see "MGP" on Friday, Sept. 16. Yay! But not for the morning showing of "Coriolanus" on Sept. 17. Wonder what's up with that? Still gonna call for premiere tickets to "Coriolanus" on Sept. 12 but we'll see. Otherwise, I guess I'll be on the red carpet rope line.
  10. Do they show films more than once at TIFF? Gala Premieres are very expensive and most fans would just want to be at the red carpet anyway. I'd like to actually see the movie there if possible but not break the bank. Just wondering.
  11. I'll be there with my husband from Sept. 12 through Sept. 18. We're huge movie buffs and have already ordered a ticket package to catch as many as we can. Hopefully Gerry's time there will overlap with ours and we're always up for a meeting with Gerry's other fans, of course. Sue
  12. I thought the photos were cute and found the write-up cheeky and filled with humor. And I get the feeling that cute, silly girls who "run into" him on purpose are if anything a very minor irritation compared to the rest of what Gerry has to put up with. Maybe it's even a pleasant distraction. He certainly looked happier in these than in others. I'm glad I got to see them. Thanks, Becozy.
  13. Okay, I'm here (and I'm going to the Gerry Juice Shack next).
  14. I liked the "Madness?. . . This is Arkansas!" comment. And they were a lot nicer about him than men can be about hunky actors, IMO. Sometimes crude but it got me giggling about them sitting through "POTO" and "PS, I Love You". And they admitted it, no less!
  15. I thought he was trying to copy the "shaka" or "hang loose" symbol Hawaiians like to wave around at each other.
  16. Remember why he suddenly turned up clean-shaven for a Paris photoshoot not long ago and then had to start regrowing the Sam Childers beard? Now we know the reason. Variety is the spice of life. If the men's products include shave gel, he's gotta shave. He can regrow scruff in 24 hours or so it seems. He's going all George Clooney -- maybe he'll see his own face in European airports soon.
  17. It looked to me like he got ticked off a bit when he saw that he was being filmed and tried to signal the management that it was happening. He was having fun at the start but I think he was bummed by the end (and I think the gesture was him pointing out a tiny cell phone camera in the crowd). Maybe he'll have to ask everyone to check them at the door before they party with him from now on if he wants to stay off YouTube.
  18. It seems to me that Gerry has lived through a lot of the fighting and drinking and risky behavior when he was young and the mature man he's become is much more in touch with his feelings and emotionally stable, even though he's still a work in progress (as we all are). He may be most famous for PLAYING hard-as-nails characters but in real life he seems reasonably comfortable talking about his feelings. (In fact, I think he talks about them in interviews more than most men do.) And if the Herald wants to see a guy comfortable with eyeliner, they should get a look at the photos from "Attila". He wasn't afraid to cry his heart out in "POTO" either. If anything, Gerry could be used as an example of a man who grew beyond the Scottish (or traditionally macho) tradition, not as a man who perpetuates it, IMO.
  19. There is a mention of a feature film on the first page of the article but no more information about it. I enjoyed reading it, Hobbes, and I felt it was a bit cautionary and fairly balanced. I hope the film will be too.
  20. I think the comment about him being "afraid of his own shadow" is snarking because he won't grant interviews to the Serbian press. And then they blew their supposedly accurate coverage of his time there by saying he hadn't left his hotel room. I guess that paper doesn't read the competition, do they? I can believe the part about getting separated from his assistant and his checked bags, if he jumped on the first standby jet out of LAX. But I doubt he spent more than one day without his clothes, from what he wore to the one of the nightclubs. And I can even accept that he wanted an HDTV in his trailer, since he reportedly likes to watch DVDs on his free time. (He supposedly watched a few with Jen on set.)I can also believe that he didn't want to move into a house furnished in European Modern, since his tastes don't run that way. Big whoop, all of this, IMO.
  21. I know I'm a geeky nerd but I'd much rather see "Coriolanus" than sit through "The Bounty Hunter" again. (And I did it twice because I'm still a loyal fan. ) It actually helps actors when they raise the bar and tackle classic literature on film or on stage from time to time. So whether or not his entire fan base can stomach it, he's going to be praised for the attempt (as he's already been some places). Maybe something else will come out on its heels so the people who groan at this will still have something to look forward to. (I'm still groaning at "Gamer". But I survived. )
  22. I do remember you and I'm really glad you ladies were wearing "HTTYD" shirts -- it was hard to miss that when we first got shuttled off to that gate. My husband is good at recon and less shy than I am so he didn't hesitate in chatting you up. I like to stand back and watch everything too. I still can't believe I actually spoke to Gerry and didn't even hesitate! But I was so focused on getting my cap signed that I was much more determined than nervous or awed. That still makes me laugh when I watch the video and I'm glad I at least asked nicely before I shoved the thing at him! My husband has a longer video on his camera but it's one of those old mini-tape things so he has to convert it to DVD, which always takes him forever. He's taller than Sara so the angle is better and he walked back and forth to get every moment like a TMZ cameraman. Maybe he'll give me the DVD for Mother's Day. Sigh. We went to Hawaii after that and it seemed really anticlimactic.
