Butler doesn't let a cold stop his love scenes

In 'RocknRolla,' he and Thandie Newton generate heat despite his illness

Access Hollywoodupdated 23 minutes ago

Scottish actor Gerard Butler sent millions of tongues wagging when he sported a six-pack and a short, Spartan military loincloth in "300." Though he has a few less CGI muscles on his physique these days, he's now lighting up the screen (and still baring bits of his body) alongside Thandie Newton in Guy Ritchie's new cockney film, "RocknRolla."Starring as a street-smart mobster named One Two, at one point in the film Butler's character finds himself in a hot on-screen romp with Newton — one that happened despite Butler having a cold.

"I'd had a bad throat infection, and it wouldn't have been fair on Thandie for me to kiss her. So Guy went, 'Right, we'll do it like this — get in there and undo her zip!'" Butler told the October issue of Britain's Marie Claire. "That was the day I realized how professional Thandie is."

During the shoot, Newton made a couple of in-the-heat-of-passion on-the-spot faces, leaving Butler stunned.

"I was so impressed. But that was Thandie — bang on it every time and just a great girl," he said.

The kiss also brought the 6-foot-2 actor to the attention of Ritchie's wife, Madonna, who had some special get well remedies lined up for him.

"One night during filming, Madonna turns up and goes, 'Are you the sick one?'" he recalled. "'You wanna get better?… Do everything I say,' (Madonna said). At this point I'm giggling like a little kid and she's like, 'Do you wanna do this or not?' So I'm like, 'Yeah, I do — but you're Madonna!'"

Apparently though Madonna's cold remedies weren't as successful as either of them had hoped.

"It didn't do a f---ing thing," he laughed.

As for his off-screen life, Butler, who lives in New York with his pug, Lolita, said he is somewhat single, noting he is "dating" a girl from the Big Apple. But one romance he assured the magazine never happened, was a reported fling with Cameron Diaz.

:lmao: I give it one post -- two tops!!! :lmao:

Ahem.

“I was so impressed. But that was Thandie — bang on it every time and just a great girl,” he said.

Like fantasizing about shaggin' Gerry is a hard "act" to pull off ... As if. (G would've been WAY impressed by the "O-zone" competition we had in Vegas during the 06 convention! Right, Katie? :rotflmao:

Loved the article. Great find, Barb!!

Great article, even the ending. He deserves happiness and I hope that whomever it is brings him peace and makes him feel valued and loved. Gerry deserves so much more and nothing less. (Oh, and I'm "from" the Big Apple . . . might just be me! :cunning: I'll never tell.)

I also think it shows his class how he handled the whole Thandie not kissing him thing. Putting the "blame" on him. Well, he was the sick one. The man has the lowest immune system in creation!

Thanks, Barb. :hearts:

You got that right, Holly! I'll bet Thandie didn't get to include "Oh g*d...Gerry!" in her fake act! :lmao:

Yep Gerry...we great girls at GALS can be "bang on it" anytime anywhere 24/7/365, just say the word! :lol:

Forgot to say . . .

Finally a mention of LOLITA!!!!! :pug::D

There's a bit more to the article, by the way. He explains HOW the CD rumors got started.

“She’s amazing. But there’s nothing going on. It just happened one night, with a crowd of people, we had dinner,” he said. “Then another night we ran into each other completely by accident. And then, another night, we were at different birthday parties at tables next to each other. Suddenly the press is saying we’re together. I’m amazed how these things spread.”

Always love to hear when his baby is brought up.

Wonder how many rumors and speculations are going to be brought up now that he says he is somewhat single yet dating. :unsure:

I won't speculate on his private life, but I'm glad to hear that he has potentially found a lady to share it with. :)

Just a couple of observations we might want to keep in mind:

Did anyone make the connection between the threads about Gerry in shorts and the fact that, literally a couple of days afterward, he appears on the streets of NYC in cutoff cargos?

Did anyone make the connection between the questions in various threads on this board regarding "Where's Miss Lolly?", "Where's Lolita?", "Has anyone seen Lolita lately?" and the fact that he makes it a point to mention her in an interview?

Remember when we were all speculating as to whether or not Gerry reads the fan boards? I strongly suspect that he does and quite often at that...

An answer to the traveling question, speculation maybe but only because I haven't had the pleasure of personally being on the same plane with Gerry: Yes, small animals do often fly with their pet people either in a carrier on the floor underneath the seat in front of their person pet or in the seat beside their person pet. I've seen this quite often in the first and biz class sections on commercial planes, sometimes in coach as well. I have a friend who works for AirLimo and she says it happens a lot, especially with celebs. So, yep, if Lolita decides she wants to make the trip and packs her own bags, why wouldn't Gerry take her along?

I will not be commenting on G. Respect him enough to walk away. Although the curiosity as to "what's going on" is killing this cat!!!! :funnyface:

Not that I would be one to test the waters so to speak, but it would be fun to put a few more things out there to see if he actually mentions them in his indirect way.

Ever hear the expression, "Don't test the gods"???
