  1. My only problem now is waiting for the movie. I told Mr. Childers I would be supporting his work, and just like the interviews he is exactly what you see. He shook my husband's and my hands again, and said, "I'm counting on it." God bless this man. Just bless him. We gave a check at the church for his work. He is so focused. He is not a kid anymore and I am kind of worried about him, I am praying for someone to come along side of him, although he does have workers there, just someone to stand with him besides the men he has trained to do the war part of it. He used to be a shotgun for gangs, meaning, well, whatever that means. I cannot imagine him being such a cold, brutal man, but I guess the good Lord knew what he was doing when he picked him out, because it takes someone tough to make this happen. The most amazing part were the tears streaming down his face when he talked about what the kids had been through. Man. Just man. That's all. It makes you never want to complain ever again. We are so blessed here in this country, we truly have no idea how many on the planet live, that's all. I am so proud of Gerry for putting some cash into this, and wanting to play him, I hope after this film he will get more support for them than he has ever had.
  2. You're welcome. It was a first for me for sure to meet someone who Gerry is playing in a movie. I read on IMDB that Gerry has a piece of this film as one of the producers, is this true? Anyone. Not everything on IMDB is accurate, so I was just wondering. If that is the case, then I am even more impressed to picking this story for him to sink his own money in.
  3. Yep, Childers didn't specifically say that, but I got that impression. He was impressed with Butler and his character, which says a lot from someone who's life is on the line daily. He was glad that "Gerry is playing me," and kind of joked about the fact that he might be "a little bit better looking." Childers is probably around 5'9", if I had to guess. So Butler is a lot bigger in size than Childers, but the fact that he let him live with him for a week is neat. Also he said, the last he heard the movie would be out next late summer or fall, but he said those "Hollywood types move things around." So I hope that it is sooner rather than later. I fully believe this kind of role, the heart-tugging kind, is tailor made for Gerry, and I simply cannot wait to see what he did with it, especially since I got to talk and meet this man for such a long time. Sam is as rough as they come, but what a great heart! He wept when he spoke about his kids. We did too, the entire congregation got weepy. We raised about $3,000 towards the well drilling rig. These people are drinking water that kills them. You wouldn't feed it to an animal, they die from the diseases and then they are being killed off by these violent militia group. The kids are forced to shoot their own families and then made slaves in their army, and then if they do not do everything right they are killed and mutilated. They are raped continually. It is truly horrifying how forgotten these kids are.
  4. My rather small church, we are so small we lease another church to have our cooperate meetings sponsored a meeting where Childers came with some sweet promotions guy to raise money for a well digging rig to dig water wells in the Sudan, and being an incredibly strong Christian, he knows where to come for money to help these people from dying. Well, I was asked by our church to man his book table, which he was selling to raise money as well, the book being "Another Man's War." He came over to the table to show me how to man his little credit card machine, and may I just say up front, this man is the real deal. What a lovely man of God, he is the most humble, most dedicated man I have ever met, and I support a couple of other missionaries, who help starving kids. He looks at you directly in your eyes, is completely honest, real, and for a missionary, pretty tough, but he is in a war zone, and there is a Fatwa (death threat issued by Muslims) on him over there and over here, to have him killed. The armies have tried to kill him 10 times, and he just keeps plugging along, rescuing children. As he told me, he was not afraid of death when he didn't know where he was going, so he certainly is not afraid of it now. LOL He continued to come by the book table, and talked to me, he spoke and prayed with every person who came up to him, everyone! He would not even leave the church to get a cup of coffee or grab a snack. He sat there while all of our staff was working to get stuff ready and prepared his sermon. To say I am impressed with how God could work in someone's life is an understatement. I left the church later, but apparently Childers stayed there until like 10:30 p.m. praying and talking to those in need of counsel and love. The actual day began at 3:00 p.m. And now for the Gerry part, apparently Butler stayed with him and his wife for a week. He wanted to know everything about Sam, and followed him around, and stay in his home. Childers said that Gerry was a genuinely nice guy, humble, funny, and very respectful of his family. They enjoyed hanging out together and rode bikes, etc. Childers makes no money from the ministry whatsoever, and supports his family with his custom motorcycle business that his friends run for him. He makes zip, and has been audited to prove it. His orphanages and the couple of thousand kids he supports get every penny he raises. When he began this ministry, he sold everything he owned, including his home and bikes, to build the first orphanage. Anyway, Butler was in apparent awe of how far God had brought this man. A serious conversion. Apparently, there is so much more that Childers did in the past that we do not know anything about, even from his book. But the man I met, has one goal, to save lives, to help those the world has forget. I am sooooooooooo glad Butler is playing him, and so is Sam. So is Sam's wife, who told Butler, "Well, you're not as good looking as Sam, but you will do," to which Butler acted hysterically like he had been wounded to the core. LOL I just wanted to share this, and I cannot wait to see what Gerry does with this role, and I pray for the success for this movie because the story is true, this man Childers is amazing, simply amazing, these kids stories need to be put in the public realm again, and I can smell an Oscar from this role for Gerry. Okay, that is all for now. Thanks for listening.
  5. Classy actors in this one, woooohooooo, and other adjectives. Looking forward to a British run film, with great actors. Good for him doing something this meaty. How much more meaty a script than Shakespeare, and I know Finnes will handle it with great care, he is a superb, superb, actor, and well, Redgrave, that just goes without saying. Good for you Gerry, well done.
  6. Comparing Gerry to Brad is like comparing the finest silk to sackcloth. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwww. Brad has never been much to me, either as an actor or as a man. I kind of hope in my little heart that there is something here, because I would like to see Butler have someone worthy of him. I think she is a good gal that got a raw deal awhile ago, adultery cannot and is not fun. So I kind of hope they are a couple because she certainly would not be after his fame, or his money. But I guess we will see in the end, whether this is just friendship, publicity or anything special. We wish Gerry the best certainly, no matter what. I wish her well too, I feel for any woman who got burned that badly, especially so much in the public eye. There is so much hideous written about here because people think Angelina is such a wonderful person. Personally, I have absolutely no respect for her morally. I do not care how many babies she adopts. JMHO
  7. Once again, Gerry shows why he is worthy of the box office support from faithful fans, who even know the name of his new company. His kindness will be repaid in this lifetime over and over for his patience and sincere apprepriation of those who buy the tickets to his movies. He could give lessons to other actors on how to treat fans. And yep, he down-to-earthness is a real treat to behold.
  8. Even with the leeches around, he is simply a class act. He handles himself so well. They are awful creatures though, the paps.
  9. Someone on the Splash site remarked that they were outside and that the guy escorting Gerry was a bodyguard who helped people get into and out of the club safely. He apparently also escorted an actress into and out of the club as well according to the poster, but the press and strange folks seems to want to speculate as to a single man at 38 not living with different women and having kids out of wedlock as being gay, I suppose. It gets tiring. Even Gerry himself has answered the question, but what can you do?
  10. The area code given was also for places out here where I live near the Inland Empire, so who knows. And NO, Gerry would not give out a phone number that others could hear, especially the rodent press. He was fooling around, and is obvious to me when he made the side comments to his friend. Let's face it, we do not know the age of the gals he was talking too at all, not at all. Some exotic looking gals are much older than they look with their beautiful complexions. They could not be too young to be driving around clubbing, they had to be at least 21 or older to even attempt to get in. Like I said, I believe he was kidding around, and since none of us have even heard or seen a picture of him with anything horrifically young, or seen any loonies pop up, let's just allow him to have fun. No harm no foul. I give him tremendous credit for keeping his life free of scandal and free of junk. He is a smart, smart man and he will not blow what he has worked so hard to get, and that is respect.
  11. I kind of think it was more for them that he was flirting, than for him, almost like a little sport or fun for him. He giggled and said something to his friend in the midst of it, so he he did not seem serious about it, and I do not know what phone number he recited theirs, or his. If the area code was right I doubt serious if Gerard lives in the area I do. LOL So perhaps it was the girls, who knows. You know the man has been real careful with his private life, and no lunatics how shown up yet, so I seriously doubt that he would actually date drive by fangirls looking for a star. When he feels that Lolita is not enough in his life he will settle down when he is ready I believe. LOL But he is so busy now, seriously, how is he suppose to just tied down at this point, and give the attention to one relationship? Gerard has been extremely smart in his career and dedicated and in a way almost married to it for this season, and I cannot blame him. It is a tough business. In one sense his career obtained new life after 300 and he will be offered everything and he is enjoying this opportunity and making the most of it, to be make his career is always viable -- it is called box office, and when he has that down pat, and can pick and chose and always has a great bunch of scripts to go after in his career, and relax. Then I believe we will see him more focused on a relationship. JMHO
  12. Did anyone catch the phone number? LOLOLOL He did give an Los Angeles County area code, in fact, the same area code I have, which is a little unsettling. lol Can't imagine he would actually give it out with the razzis there to catch his number. At least I hope he didn't?
  13. The razzis are lower than pond scum as far as occupation. In fact, homelessness would be a better occupation. I can only imagine what must have been said to him. They bait celebrities to get responses. He has been gracious to them in the past, but Gerry is only human, (contrary to popular opinion...LOL.) I know he knows it is part of the territory, but can you imagine how awful it must be to be hounded by these people who have no manners, no kindness, no motivation except taking more and more photos and trying in many cases to illicit some kind of money shot. I even understand asking for one shot and then leaving him alone, but it would never be just one shot, would it? They just have no boundaries. None, kind of like piranhas, they are mindless and just attack a person's space. It is a very sad statement of our society that these people can even make a living doing this. I know we enjoy pictures but . . . ., but I feel kind of sick over it. Magazines, premieres, interviews are one thing, but these people even stalk celebrity children these days and cause danger to celeb's driving, it is really sick. Truly a sick profession. Sorry off of soapbox now, I merely feel bad for him that's all. And if it had been me, a bird might not have been sufficient, especially if a picture of my son had been in the bargain.
  14. I'm am hoping to see him rock the screen in Burns next. Born to play it, and only one who could in my opinion.
  15. I think with the blockbusters, like National Treasure, Sweeny Todd, and Legend, it has done a respectable opening. I have seen it twice, and once on Friday night after Christmas with a friend, and to be honest the theater was packed out. So I have a feeling this will run a long time. Some movies like this do run a long time, while the public flocks to take their kiddies to see some of the action ones, over the holidays, they stop after New Year's, and this film will run quite a awhile I believe, and do great on DVD. That is my hope anyway, and yep, the audience loved this movie a bunch. There was laughter in all the right places, you could hear a pin drop at the sexy bits, and people clapped in the end, which is very cool for LA. Just my two cents, I would not call it's opening a failure by any standards. And Gerry, good grief, it has done what he wanted it too, to show how charming and funny he can be. My friend who is not a movie goer at all, and knows nothing about Gerry, nothing at all, was charmed by him. So it definitely has given directors and others looking for romantic lead, etc., to see Gerry in another light. For him it has accomplished what he wanted I believe. Just my take.
