  1. Happy birthday hun xx

  2. Julia Roberts is to a certain extent in the same boat as Gerry, for the most part her films are not positively reviewed at all. Print and blog type critics tend to review the genre or type of movie rather then the movie itself. Romantic comedies are always badly reviewed, while action and horror movies are usually cut a lot of slack by critics and receive more positive reviews. They all just fall into a pattern of group think. I don't think they have anything against Gerard Butler but are often reacting to the hype and publicity surrounding the motion picture business. So it's nothing personal and the commentator in this article failed to separate the fact Gerry's movies make money from his opinion of Gerry's films.
  3. I think this is a great idea! Soccer is perfect for Gerry and perhaps he can use his own accent. His best reviews so far have been How to Train your Dragon where he used his own accent so if he can use that in this film it would really be to his benefit. That being said I think (IMHO) the film should be based here in the states. It would run the risk of being a small film seen by very few people like Dear Frankie. Remember Burns is having a tough time getting made. Turn this movie into a regional film it loses its broad appeal. The reality is it might not get the funding under those circumstances. Many kids play soccer here (Hello Soccer Moms!)and you could to a certain extent have a fish out of water element to the interactions between Gerry and the kids that would be fun.
  4. I agree he does look very happy in these photos with this adorable child. And it must be a pleasure for him to work, relax and enjoy his surroundings without the over the top press coverage that he got in Belgrade while filming.
  5. His costar Michelle Monahan is off to side singing too, so a lot of the folks around Gerry could very well be working on the film with him, a nice group outing for everyone to bond. He seems happy enough to sing along with the crowd even if he isn't crazy about the song. I can't even begin to guess at his mood from the clip I see here. He could be asking for anything from Coke to water or a round for his pals.
  6. The other Gerard (Depardieu!) is around 60 years old now and pretty much past his leading man days. Much of his work is done in France and many of his films are never released here in the states. I always liked him and considered him equal to De Niro and Pacino. Our Gerry is of course in his prime, where even his mullet becomes newsworthy and is being reviewed at the movie blogs before the movie has even finished shooting!
  7. Sam Childers is not a fashion plate so Gerry is going to look like a rough around the edges biker. Glad to see G is really getting into the role. Love seeing the photos but part of me also regrets the paps have shown up. Love that he has been under the radar working hard and enjoying Michigan.
  8. What gossip does is sale magazines (see Jennifer Aniston-Gerard Butler magazine thread), and keep web sites like Just Jared, Gawker and Radar in business. What ever effect it has on Box Office profits is pretty minimal IMHO. Gerry is now bankable and that is the only reason he was cast in Coriolanus. I don't think Gerry's off screen behavior is any more colorful then yesterday's stars like Warren Beatty or Steve McQueen, in fact Gerry might be rather tame compared to those two. But his does have the challenge of trying to promote himself and his career in the midst of the digital age, the 24 hour media that never stops. That's something Beatty and McQueen never had to deal with.
  9. It's true she is profitable for magazines. That's why the tabloids are always making stuff up about her, put her on the cover with a bunch of phony rumors and bam, they make money. And note that the Architectural Digest with Gerry on the cover was the second best seller. Not too shabby. But it's Gerry that drives box office for his films. Even The Bounty Hunter ended up making a profit at the box office and I suspect that was because of Gerry. Kathrine Heigl's The Killers was a flop. Compare that to the The Ugly Truth, Gerry was that movie's secret weapon. I have to say I did not like the W spread at all so I didn't buy it.
  10. Lionsgate is in a fluid situation right now. It's in the midst of a hostile takeover by Carl Icahn. See details here: http://www.deadline.com/2010/06/icahn-says-hell-own-31-of-lionsgate/ If he gets control current management could be fired and these sorts of uncertainties can affect their film slate. They need some successes other then Tyler Perry. And they have a lousy track record in promoting their films. That being said this movie has more upside then some of their past releases. With Gerry and a proven director, and a solid cast I'm hopeful this movie will be properly show cased when it is released and not treated like a B movie with little to no promotion.
  11. The Ugly Truth seems to be playing a lot on the Starz channel, I would guess that's where a lot of the younger fans saw it. That being said I would expect Ryan Reynolds to win the thing although it's great Gerry is being noticed.
  12. I would guess in addition to doing some prep work for MGP he is also taking meetings and looking into future projects.
  13. Well, this weekend is the first sighting of him or news of him for at least a week. He's been out of sight and in LA for several days, presumably sticking close to home and attending to business. So it was about time for him to pop up again.
  14. According to People it was a commercial shoot on the Rue Martel, see info at this link If you gotta work Paris is the place to do it! Some people have all the luck...
