  1. My tickets are booked .... I'm going!! Can't believe that I am going to see Gerry in the flesh!!!!! *does happy dance*
  2. You have no idea how excited I was to read about Gerry's visit to South Africa. When he came here to film MGP I was distraught when he came and went and I didn't manage to catch a glimpse of him. The information was just posted on FB about the fan event taking place on 9th April. I am over the moon, I just hope I manage to get tickets .... wish me luck everyone!! Now that I have that out of my system ... sorry for being so quiet. Work has been so busy and I have had no time for pleasure (ie here). I'm back though ... what have I missed?
  3. I'm back ... been a while, but work has been so busy!

  4. Hi Gerry, Been a while since my last message to you (sounds like the start of a confession haha). Ok I digress already. Just wanted to wish you an AWESOME Valentine's Day and hope that you get to spend it with someone deserving and special. Although there is nothing wrong with spending it with family ... my daughter is my Valentine this year, what more could a mom want? Well .... that is a rhetorical question but let me not digress yet again. Looking forward to your movies coming out this year .... have only heard good things and am specially looking forward to Machine Gun Preacher!
  5. Well I think they list Jay first as he was in effect the main character in the movie? Usually that do that? The fact that Gerry's name was first in the credits was I think, due to him being a big name and a huge draw card. He was one of the reasons I went to see that movie above other animated movies. Well done HTTYD .... AWESOME!!
  6. He seems to be one of the true gentlemen and one who will go out of his way for his fans, regardless of the imposition that it must be on his time and privacy! To me that is amazing! As for ovaries ... hell my whole body experiences warm fuzzies lol
  7. Welcome ... thanks for adding me!

  8. Oh my .... I thought I'd died and gone to heaven when I saw those pics!!! I think Hugh and Gerry could play brothers in a movie!! I think they should do a movie together ..... my ovaries would clap so loud no one else would be able to hear the movie lmao
  9. Some more news from sunny South Africa. According to these reports he has not left yet, or am I reading it wrong? (Both these articles were dates 4th October 2010) Source: http://justjared.buz...r-south-africa/ Gerard Butler gets some downtime from shooting his new movie, Machine Gun Preacher, in Magaliesberg and Hartbeespoort, South Africa (he's been there the past few weeks). The 40-year-old Scottish stud will wrap up shooting this week and say goodbye to South Africa this weekend. Machine Gun Preacher, out next September, is about a drug addict turned reverend Sam Childers (Butler). For more on this fan encounter with Gerry, visit this site! http://justjared.buz.../#ixzz11ZJZDudH This is the article that 'this site' link refers to http://www.claytonmo...ng-in-cape-town and it has pictures ..... YAY!!!!! After a long night of celeb stalking and paparazzi pic-taking, I successfully managed to snap a photo of myself with Hollywood heartthrob and A-Lister Gerard Butler at Cafe Caprice in Cape Town last night. The actor, known for box office hits such as The Bounty Hunter and Law Abiding Citizen, has been filming a new movie in Johannesburg for several weeks now and is in Cape Town for a break as well as to party at some of the city's top night spots, such as Cafe Caprice (in Camps Bay) and The Fez, where he's been getting the attention of some of the city's hottest women. I had my camera with me, of course, capturing all the action of what he got up to at Caprice. I got word from various sources that Gerard, who happens to be one of my favourite actors of all time, was going to be in town for the weekend – and I was completely prepared to go all out to get the autograph and photo. Gerard's working on the film Machine Gun Preacher, based on the life of Sam Childers. Gerard plays the role of Sam - a preacher who dedicated his life to rescuing children from war zones in Sudan. After word got out that Gerard had spent Saturday night partying at The Fez in Cape Town's city centre, I heard various stories about him being "one of the nicest people to chat to" and that he was totally approachable in person. Gerard had visited Cape Town earlier last month, and I'd heard that he'd frequented Cafe Caprice during that time. He went back there this weekend for more partying, and certainly seemed to enjoy the attention of the women, who blatantly flirted and threw themselves at him! Even though I later heard he became quite annoyed by their advances. And because he loves Cape Town so much, Gerard didn't arrive at the place with bodyguards or a massive entourage – he was just up for chilling with his friends from Cape Town. What a nice guy indeed, as most Hollywood stars aren't accustomed to the blasé attitude of South Africans when it comes to spotting them in person. Nevertheless, I received a few tip-offs about Gerard's arrival at Caprice just after 8pm, and decided to make my way there an hour or so later. Naturally, I was armed with my camera and pen, in the hope of getting the all-important photo and autograph. As soon as I arrived, I saw Gerard chatting to a hot woman upstairs. He seemed very casual in a grey-button t-shirt, jeans and a blue and beige cap (with which he tried hard to disguise himself at first). The surprising thing about this hottie we know from the movies is that he didn't shave, appeared to look somewhat tired and scruffy in the face, had a very husky Scottish accent and is quite muscular in real life. He has an amazingly commanding presence in spite of being 6 feet tall. I was surprised, as I seemed to be somewhat taller than him! As soon as Gerard finished chatting to his lady friend, I positioned myself to meet him at the foot of the stairs, where I approached him saying: "Excuse me, Gerard. Can I have your autograph please?" He said, "Sure, no problem.", then came down the stairs, positioned himself at the bar and signed a blank sheet of paper for me. Then I asked: "Can I have a photo too?" to which he then replied, "I'm sorry, I can't take any photos. If I take one for you, then I end up taking photos all night long!" I begged for a second time and again he wouldn't grant my request, saying, "At least I signed an autograph for you." I must admit it was initially a bitter pill to swallow, seeing that I wasn't just stalking random folk like Leonardo DiCaprio or Halle Berry (with whom I'd had bad encounters in person) – I actually was a TRUE fan of Gerard and his work. But I understood that he was partying with friends in a public space, and that he had the right to privacy too of course, so I respected his wishes. Still, I decided to stick around and party – in the hope of maybe getting lucky with a photo the next time I approached him. I figured I had to find the right approach and time it just right! Just over an hour into my stalking experience, after I'd subtly managed to get some snaps of him drinking Perrier Water and chilling with various girls, I noticed him starting to snap photos with them! I became extremely annoyed. Why would he only take photos with girls? Doesn't he realise he has a male fanbase too? Of course, being a hit with the ladies came at a huge price as he ended up taking quite a number of photos with them. Blackberrys and IPhones were the perfect accessories to have on the evening. But by the looks of things, Gerard hated posing for pictures in general. He hardly smiled for the photos and I think it's because deep down, he's a shy and private person. It turned out that Gerard kept drinking water all night long (apparently he gave up drinking "ages ago"), while at times standing up on chairs to dance and get into the festivities. As you'd expect from a Cape Town crowd, a number of the patrons didn't actually make a huge fuss about him, although from time to time there did seem to be an "overpopulation" at the section where he was standing! So while they partied on, I ended up taking a gazillion paparazzi photos of Gerard and all the people he'd been chatting to. I even spotted him chatting to SA model Tracy McGregor for a bit. It looked like they knew each other from a previous outing, as they exchanged hugs and kisses after their friendly banter. Back to the photo stalking! Two hours into the hunt, I ended up with a handful of blurry photos from my phone, as I didn't want my normal camera's flash to go off. I didn't want to scare him off; rather to try everything in my power to get that elusive one-on-one photo with Gerard. I hopped outside, got close to the VIP section where he was chatting with some girls, and when I saw a break in the conversation, I took my moment to move in. It wasn't that easy though; security was tight, and there were club bouncers all around to watch over Gerard and make sure he was having fun! In spite of having so many photos taken of him already, I think he still remembered who I was. Even though he didn't seem too happy about it, he eventually agreed - and even smiled for our photo! What a legend he is indeed. Despite being rejected the first time, my tenacity paid off in the end and it was well worth it. Now I value his career and work even more, and the memory of meeting him will always be cherishedRead more:
  10. Shirsan, your concerns are understandable, however Sudan is quite a way from South Africa (and the locations where MGP was reportedly filmed) and we do have border control so it's not that easy for just anyone to get in. I have to laugh (not being horrid here) at some perceptions of South Africa. I am definitely not patriotic however it is really amazing at the comments that come out about South Africa. Yes the press plays a huge part in this in terms of the reporting that comes out of here. The crime is horrific, granted. Unemployment is bad. Please don't get me wrong here I'm not being mean or anything .....
  11. More news about him going then him being here lol. Thanks for the update .....
  12. Hey Bonnie .... I'm not sure I understand the 'where they're shooting' part? lol Tomorrow they wrap according to reports .... I wonder where the wrap-party will be .....
  13. Hey Lisa ... no, it isn't the the same article .... they were written almost a month apart and are different articles and sources It's really awesome to get something .... wish there was more! I'm very disappointed with the entertainment journalists in this country. Perhaps that is why there is an increase in the number of films being filmed here as the celebs are not hounded by the press and they can do their 'job' in peace
  14. Finally some news .... http://www.timeslive.co.za/entertainment/article678732.ece/Gerard-Butler-wows-clubbers This article appears in Times Live which is the online version of The Times newspaper available all over South Africa. Gerard Butler wows clubbers Sep 27, 2010 10:34 PM | By Gabisile Ndebele Hollywood actor Gerard Butler was spotted clubbing on Saturday night at upmarket nightclub Latinova, in Rosebank, Johannesburg. Butler, famous for his roles in The Bounty Hunter and Law Abiding Citizen, is reportedly working in this country on his latest film, Machine Gun Preacher, based on the life of Sam Childers. Butler plays Childers, a preacher who dedicated his life to rescuing children from war zones in Sudan. Rosebank clubbers were impressed. Wearing blue jeans and a light blue top, Butler "smiled and chatted to everyone". Tanya Bosch said: " When we asked for pictures he said he didn't want to do that because he would have to say 'yes' to everyone . He said he wanted to have fun."
  15. Hi all for your input .... well unfortunately I did not go last night, don't have my map book - it's in my car that is being repaired ... am going to follow that twitter page today and see if there is anything new! WOW a Khulula flight hey ... that's quite interesting .... yes I heard he was in Cape Town, dam I'm jealous - not even I have been in Cape Town. So my plan is that I have to try and get out there ..... There should be no danger really, I've checked it out on a map and there are some lovely nature reserves out there as well. Although Sandton in Johannesburg has been named the most dangerous place in South Africa according to the statistics that have just been released I love being part of this forum. No one understands my obsession .... would go with my daughter - she recognises Gerry now ... when she saw my Men's Health magazine she recognised Gerry from LAC and PS I Love You and then proceeded to watch PSILY much to my joy *blush*
