Gerard Butler GALS

7/12 - Ischia Film & Music Festival


Recommended Posts

Thanks Hollywood!

(Mention of Gerry in BOLD)

Other big names to have descended on the hotspot in the Gulf of Naples are Welshman Ioan Gruffyd, his fiancée Alice Evans and 300 hunk Gerard Butler. And singers including Sheryl Crow and Laura Pausini, the princess of Italian pop, were there to be honoured with career achievement trophies.

I take it that the Festival is going on now? So Gerry must be there. I wonder if we'll see any pictures from there? There were many from 2005, including the shiny silver suit! Ha, ha...

:claphands: :inlove:

Alas, they're only referring to him having been there in the past years - unless he's gone there undercover, I mean, but until now there's been no sign of him over there (I reckon he's too busy in London filming Rocknrolla - c'mon, the guy can't be more ubiquitous than what he already is, poor luv!) - his name's been mentioned a lot these days as Hilary Swank was there at the festival yesterday (and on holiday in Ischia in the past few days) to promote her forthcoming movies, including "PSILY", so, FYI, Gerry's name appeared a lot on Italian newspapers in the past week, which is a verra, verra good thing anyway :kisswink: .

Madamina,

As usual, you are correct!! I read the story before in the actual magazine and it seems my brain did not process the message in its entirety after seeing the name of Gerard Butler. :confused:

Thank you for the clarification.

It's ok - I too was hoping he would show up, and have been keeping an eye on the festival's programme all the time (as, if he was going to be there, I would've hopped on the first boat from Sorrento to Ischia, too!!!), but, alas!, as you can see from piccies of this year's edition, no Gerry-luv... *sighs*...

Still keeping my fingers and toes crossed for a miraculous (LOL does such a word exist or have I just made that up??) appearance @ Rome's FilmFest later this year, in October, but his schedule is so busy I won't hold my breath (ooooh, please, Gerry, come to Rome!!!)...

I am happy he is getting mentioned now. Before no one ever heard of him maybe he will start being known around I try my best here in my town on a community forum we have to tell everyone I talk to on there about him and have posted pictures and all his movies. still, very few here have even known he was the same guy as in Tomb Raiders. its just amazing to me but his characters have many faces so a lot of people don't even realize its the same person. Oh I guess if I didn't know I would do the same. But the eyes have it how can you not Tell.!!!! I am so glad he is becoming a known name. Betts

Mark Canton, one of the producers for 300, is getting an award at this year's festival.

ETA: As is his friend Raul Bova

I'm glad they are mentioning him, I don't think in the past he had been...oh do I dear dream that him in a bathing suit will be making an appearance...:thud:

Plus, one of the producers is getting an award, one of his friends and Hillary's there--seeing as they had dinner in LA with Jeffrey and her boyfriend, they might be hanging out too..so if they are taking pics of her, he may be in one or two of them.

Geez........sounds like he might "pop up" there this weekend, what with so many friends and business associates there.

Well, if he's not there.............he's SOMEWHERE ELSE..............hmmmmmmm

And nobody really knows what else he has going on............

Whatever it is, I hope he's happy!!

:smooch:

:funnyabove: :rotflmao: Amazing how often that happens, isn't it!! We see or hear his name, and it causes immediate electrical charges to run through your body, causing all sorts of havoc!! :cunning:

Well, that's a bit of a speculation, methinks.

I repeat myself, I know, but he can't be ubiquitous: he's filming Rocknrolla in London and they have to pack it in quick, as he's flying to Australia to film Nim's Island right after that.

Sunbathing in Ischia, as much as *I* would love him to do that ('cos I'd be there, too, faster than you can say "mozzarella di bufala"), just doesn't seem to fit in, I'm afraid.

I agree that he MIGHT show-up... even if just for one day or a couple of hours... the day they show 300 or the day that Hiliary is on; especially with PSILY in the wings for December.

Maybe a pit stop on the way to Australia?

I know Thandie Newton took time out to attend the Serpentine Art event this week; so maybe Gerry will have time to do this... the miracle of jet flight.

Well, they're filming in London, the Serpentine *is* in London, didn't take Ms.Newton that much of an effort to go there (not jet flying involved), don't you think?

Anyway, it kind of amazes me how you just want Gerry to show up *everywhere*, only to start going "oooh, poor luv he looks so tired!" as soon as you see piccies of the event. That's a bit of a nonsense, IMHO.

Good one, madamina! I need to remember this one in the future.

I also agree it might be a stretch for him to be at the festival especially, when we have seen no 'incriminating' evidence from the soirees. :cunning: However, nowadays with the amazing speed of jet flights combine with Ambien (remember his story about Alan?) might make his appearance a reality. We'll just hope for photo evidence as we know... they loooove Ger in Ischia especially the ladies. (Okay, I stand corrected...the ladies love him anywhere!!)

Health and happiness to him wherever he is!

Wasn't the Ischia film festival held the last week of June? That is what their web site says.

Nope, it was this past week, it ended today.

I'm willing to bet that Gerry was there for at least one day. He just ducked the cameras.

Yes we do love for him to show up everywhere so that we can all go," oooooohhh he looks sooooo tired, poor thing, he needs a message." Then everyone starts queuing up with," I'll message his neck, and I'll take his feet, and I'll do his..... :jawdrop::escape:"

And I'll repeat this is all speculation.

I know Gerry does have many faces. Like someone else had said that some people didn't know Gerry was the guy in Tomb Raider. I didn't and I had seen alot his movies without knowing he was the same guy from Tom Raider. Like when I saw 300 I didn't know it was him. I wanted to go see the movie because it looked like a bada$$ movie and then I feel in love the king and got on the internet when I got home and fell out of my chair when I found out he was the same guy from Tomb Raider, Reign of Fire, Phantom of the Opera, Timeline.

I know I am miss seeing new pics of him. When I see new pics of him it just makes my day!!!!

You know what?

We are missing seeing Gerry in new pictures!!! WE are so addicted that we are showing all the symptoms :kisswink:

MJ, I see your point, and understand that - I too like to see new piccies of him (altho - and now I know most of you will hate me for saying this - I think he's more telegenic than photogenic, id est looks better in person than in piccies. Anyways, that's just my opinion.), getting to know what he's been up to, etc.

Still, I also think that creating the frenzy out of *nothing* - like saying "oooh, he might show up there since Hilary Swank and/or Raoul Bova are there too" - is pretty pointless, and very irritating, too (FYI, Raoul Bova is Italian, and is basically expected to show up to any film festival held in Italy...I often see him walking around in Rome as, well, he lives here, but does that mean Gerry is going to show up here, too? I don't think so.) - that's the same kind of frenzy that gossip/tabloid papers create, and, again, most of the time out of nothing, and that I just hate that.

If and when Gerard *actually* shows up anywhere, I'll be happy to see new piccies, if he's keen on to being taken piccies of himself (and no, I don't like seeing him all grumpy and rather p*ssed off in a limo, sexy as he can look even when looking grumpy - 'cos he's a person, and a p*ssed off person is never a good thing.). Beside that, I'm just happy knowing he's working on a few good movies I'll surely go and see, and knowing he's doing well. That's a healthy attitude to maintain, I reckon.
