Gerard Butler GALS

3/1 - What The Butler Said


Recommended Posts

He is once again showing how tired and homesick he gets. He is such a wonderful man of his country and I am even more proud of him for saying so. He is not an easy man to get along with and he totally admits it. He needs one of you GALS to make his life complete. Not me, because I am as old as his Mum, but we have a lot of single, very pretty GALS here that would fit the bill. I wish he could get attached to one of you that truly adore him. He would be such a happy man. It makes me sorta sad that this incredibly gorgeous man is so lonely. But at least he is smart enough to realize a relationship of steady proportions is hard right now!! But I pray constantly for him to find the right gal when he is ready to settle down. Hopefully not settle yet. I need to see him, need too!!

Thanks for the update and pics. You are super Celtic Star as is our Barb!!

Jo

I so agree, Jo! He should get "attached" to one of the GALS that truly adores him. He wouldn't have to miss a beat in his career! I have no doubt of it! No woman could love him more!

D

OMG D,

He sure does need one of our GALS! He would be so happy to be totally loved and revered. He needs that constant adoration if he is like my Grand Daughter who is also a Scorpio. As strong as she is, she needs constant re-assurance how good she is and what a spectacular girl she is. She soaks it up like a dry sponge. And she is a very special girl, as Gerry is a very special man. They just need to know that the people that care for them love them constantly. Not everyday or every minute but more often than some people do. But the adoration has to be real and not fake. 'Course, if I was lucky enough to be around this incredible man, it would not be too hard to praise him pretty constantly. :drool1: He is the most beautiful man ever!!!!

Jo

Yes, he needs someone who gets him and doesn't try to "fix" him. He just needs an adoring, patient and somewhat open minded lady who understands Gerry is just Gerry. This would have to be someone who would get used to long periods of time away from him, all the beautiful women that were around him all the time, and would be there for him when he comes home, making up for all the lost time apart, keeping the fridge stocked with Coke, etc.

Oh my God! I'm Rose!

Gerry himself on more than one occasion has said he's very hard to live with and I think he would be. It will take a very special lady who will be able to understand him.

I knew he looked tired but who would not flying from place to place seemingly over night to get from one place to another. For the sceptics out there watch out for Burns it may turn the tides for him. He can look young if they need him to they are able to do anything in films. Look at ps I Love You. he was looking really young. I hope Burns gets him the due he ihas always been born to do. Dear Frankie was wonderful wish it had been shown over here. the Jury is too. I love them all just about.

My heart will always belong to Gerry . I hope for him he gets to go home really soon to rest.

Gerry is a very fortunate man in that when he gets enough rest he looks absolutely wonderful again. He just shows his lack of rest in his eyes. And yes, he will be a very hard man to live with if you let him push you around and whine and cry about him being gone so much or any of those goofy things selfish women do to their man. If you love him you accept him for the man he is and don't try and, yes, as D said, to change him. You support him and trust him. That is love. Trust and respect. Even if you are not married. Gerry already doesn't seem to be the lay around kind of guy. I feel he would be true to the woman that has his heart and she would support him in all things. Even with all the beauties around him, he still doesn't appear to be a lay around guy!! I think, in my opinion, Gerry is smarter than that and he keeps his affairs to himself. I am proud of him for all that he is.

Well, let's see, how hard could it be living with Gerry Butler? He loves interior decorating, sex, dogs, sex, long walks, sex, his mum, sex, did I say sex? Doesn't sound so hard to me! After all, they say a hard man is good to find! :funnyup:

Yep, Slim Chance, I was thinking the same thing. It would be unwise of him to date a fan. I doubt that he would. Someone I know once said that no one is too busy for the relationship they want. It may be that Gerry is getting to that place in his life. He is not unlike any other career centric person who is unmarried because their profession is a priority. When he does choose to commit I would expect he would keep it all under wraps as long as he could. And the choice may surprise us. By and large I think he is more or less happy despite the sacrifices he may have made. He is working and succeeding at his chosen profession which is enormously fulfilling.

I'll do it!! I'll take that job.....I am very understanding and very patient. I love all the things he does (interior decorating included). We share a birthday (how great would that be?) so I am fully aware of Scorpionic needs, from top to bottom. I'd support his career wholeheartedly (I've been in the music industry, so I understand commitment) and I would adore him every minute of the day, leave him alone when he wanted to be alone and just basically treasure the man for the rest of his life.

And a girl can dream, can't she?! I love you Gerard.. :wuv:

One word of wisdom: unavailable. No PM, not interested get it? Not wise to introduce something that won’t happen, doubt Gerry would ever dip into his fan pool for a partner. If it’s ever happened my guess is it didn’t last too long? Why? They’ll spill the beans. He’s too private. To guarded. He has to be. He’s a lot riding on his reputation as a player/playboy and works hard at this image. By hard I mean it. I sense it goes against his nature. Something tells me he’s a nester at heart. He loves his home, now it’s complete and is off to fix the other then the other. It’s what he does… creates. He’s an eye for beauty, color, design and can create a place where people feel comfortable. That’s important to him, people being themselves. It just is.

Even so, with that said it takes something special to please those who already have what they want. Life is to be lived, suffered and enjoyed. No one knows how to do this more than Gerry. For many people being okay with themselves makes them less tempted by marriage. I sense he misses wherever he isn’t. Trust me, all this is written in chalk. It’s a lame excuse. Love is the water of life and he knows it, take my word on that. Fact is, I don’t believe he got this far without some sort of love from a woman. He must have a woman in his life in some capacity.

Don’t forget to live your lives.

Hey, why do you want to burst our little bubble of fantasy?

I always thought Gerry’s image as a “player/playboy” was media induced. I had no idea he worked hard at maintaining it. Doesn’t seem like that would be a positive image to nurture. But, what do I know. I’m merely one of many in the “pool”.

I don’t believe Gerry has everything he wants, yet. He’s still working on it. He’s admitted that he might be happier in a solid relationship. He is living his dream and he’s still finding his star and he’ll keep reaching for it until he gets it.

Gerry’s smart for staying single, for now, or maybe he just doesn‘t pull well in double harness. Many people don’t. Maybe Gerry is just smart enough to realize it. You have to be very careful when you involve someone else in your life, especially when you‘ve got huge career goals and aspirations. The wrong choice and they can be a weight to hold you down versus the proverbial wind beneath your wings.

Thanks for the song lyrics, albeit altered somewhat.

IMO, the idea that Gerry is a playboy/player is all created by the media and I can't believe how everyone seizes on this and repeats it ad nauseum. The truth is no one knows anything about Gerry being as he is such a private person. Wearing his heart on his sleeve? I don't think so...Gerry only reveals as much as he wants others to know. He does reveal inadvertently more than I think he means to. That's what I love about these interviews...it's great to hear everything in his own words.

I saw this article in the actual magazine yesterday and noticed they have it online

http://www.sundaypost.com/magazine/magindex.htm

What the Butler said

From gangster movies to romantic comedies, Gerard Butler’s career is going from strength to strength, as Darryl Smith finds out.

WHILE those outside the industry may dream of the Hollywood lifestyle, Gerard Butler was exposed to the harsh realities of acting very early on in his career. The Glasgow-born star was playing Archie Brown, younger brother of John, in the 1997 Oscar-nominated hit Mrs Brown. It was his first day in his very first movie role and as such he was eager to please. So when director John Madden said he wanted Gerard and co-star Billy Connolly to bound naked into a freezing sea the debutant accepted the challenge with abandon. But while the Big Yin has gained some public notoriety for undressing in the open air, Gerard had yet to acquire the skill and, as a result of his skinny dip, he developed hypothermia.

Years later, and with Gerard now a firmly established star, having appeared in Tomb Raider, Phantom of the Opera and 300, the part demanded that he’d to take his clothes off again. This time it was for romantic comedy PS I Love You and this time it was his co-star that required medical assistance. In a hapless seduction scene where Gerard clumsily performs a striptease to pacify his wife (played by Hilary Swank) after an argument, real-life imitated the art and Gerard caused Hilary an injury when the clip on an elastic brace sprang back and hit the Million Dollar Baby star over the eye. Where undressing is concerned, twice bitten, three times shy it would seem. “Trust me, if I can keep my clothes on in a movie I would rather do that every time over having to get undressed,” the handsome actor tells me, smiling at the thought of the mishaps that occur when he strips off on a movie set. “The injury to Hilary was worse than any injury that happened on 300, which was a far easier movie to get injured on.

“There was a guy who got an eye injury which was pretty bad, but Hilary’s injury was worse — she had five stitches in her head. Five stitches in your head is worse than most actors will ever get in their career, but if you’re going to get it you’re going to get it from me.”

Undaunted, Gerard will return in another romantic comedy in what is expected to be one of the summer’s big hits, The Ugly Truth. In it he plays a chauvinistic morning television correspondent who uses the show’s producer (Katherine Heigl) to prove his theories on relationships. His clever ploys, however, lead to an unexpected result. While the truth about Gerard Butler is not ugly, it is unexpected. Approaching his 40th birthday (he reaches the landmark in November) he reveals something of a penchant for interior design. “It started for me in London,” says the Scot, who moved South after graduating from Glasgow University with a law degree. “I have a place there — it’s lying empty at the moment — that I first did up many years ago and thought, ‘Look at this, it’s awesome’. And I realised then that it was something I could do, much to everyone’s surprise, to be honest. People constantly walk into my place and say, ‘Wow, this is you?’”

As Gerard’s career has grown so has his range of roles. Following his lead as the Phantom of the Opera in the 2004 film of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, Gerard bought himself a place in New York. And after playing Leonidas, King of the Spartans, in 300 — a film that took $210 million at the US box office alone — it was time to upgrade to a place in Los Angeles.

“It took me four years to get the place in New York how I wanted it and I’m so proud of it, and now I’m doing the same thing in LA as well. I like the old style. I broke my place in New York apart to make it look much older, like an old apartment in Bologna or somewhere.

“The ironic thing is that even though now I have a house in LA, I’m trying to spend more time in New York because I’ve just got that place how I want it. I’m constantly working on a place somewhere.”

With a successful career and a full-time hobby to keep him busy it’s not a huge surprise to find out that Gerard, who prefers to be called Gerry once you get to know him, hasn’t got time for much else besides. As the new man in town, the hunky actor spent much of 2008 denying that he was romantically linked to just about every single actress in LA. Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston and Paris Hilton were among those paired off with him in the US gossip mags at some point last year. The truth is somewhat different.

“It would be great to settle down but at the same time I sometimes think if anything had happened differently and I was in a long-term relationship I wouldn’t be where I am now in my career.

“If I’d had to make the sacrifices that a relationship would have required, I’d probably have been a lot happier in some respects, but I wouldn’t have been as successful. I wouldn’t have advanced as far in my career.

“I’d love to have children but I won’t be the only 40-year-old that doesn’t have kids. I’ll be happy when it happens. I’m realistic about that. A lot of happiness comes out of the excitement of watching your career progress and jump forwards and there’s also a lot of happiness you can get out of being in love and being in a relationship. The comfort and foundation you take from that is not something you get when you’re being crazy busy and successful and travelling all over the place because at the end of the day you’re not in a relationship.”

When not being linked with available women, Gerry is being linked with films. A sequel to Phantom of the Opera is being talked about, as is a long-held desire of his to make a film about the life of Robert Burns. That would bring him back to his native land, a place which the passionate patriot says is never far away from his thoughts, even as he gets further and further away from home. “I miss the people and the countryside. Scotland is such a beautiful country and I know that whenever I return and look at that it’s like big therapy for me, everything relaxes, and I’m inspired and relaxed all at once.

“And the people, the humour. I was out with a buddy of mine in New York, who is Scottish, and my side was splitting, just the way he said things. I miss that about being in Scotland — that sense of humour, that sharpness.”

It is that fervour for his homeland which Gerry has had to bring to the Burns biopic, a project that he has talked about for most of the past decade. Does the fact that he is now in a position to use his name to get that £5 million movie off the ground prove to Gerry that he’s cracked it in the notoriously fickle film business?

“It depends on what you mean by ‘cracked it’,” he responds. “For showing people ‘this guy can act’ it was Dear Frankie that did it for me. It didn’t make a lot of money but it was always the movie that, if I was talking to a director, he would watch and normally something favourable would happen from that. And Phantom, despite the fact that it didn’t break any box office records, still got me a lot of recognition. But if cracked it means really cracking it, then it would have to be 300.

“I guess there’s a lesson in there. That if you do something for nothing (Dear Frankie) you’ll get the rewards further down the line.

“I remember making that film with the actress Emily Mortimer and we would say to each other, ‘Nobody is ever going to see this movie’. We didn’t know if it was going to turn out well but we both thought it was just such a beautiful story and something we wanted to do. In actual fact, I thought the movie turned out great.

“Although, saying all that, I also made Dracula 2000 and Joel Schumacher says that it was that movie — which he only went to see because he’d seen the other six movies on at the Cineplex at the time — which he came away from thinking, ‘I’m going to work with that guy sometime’ and from that came Phantom. So it also shows that if you do a load of rubbish that might also work out as well!”

Gerard Butler can currently be seen in RocknRolla, which went on DVD release in February 2009.

Delene and Kathy,

I enjoyed reading both of your posts. Some very poignant remarks.

What I enjoy mostly about this site compared to others is the freedom I feel to express myself regarding my thoughts and feelings for Gerard. I feel that no one sits in judgement against me and that is very liberating. I am the kind of person that always thinks anything is possible. I would not have done half the things I have done in my life otherwise. Sure, I dream about Gerard and ALL the possibilities, it's a natural thing to do when you feel as I do about the man (and I know many do) but I am not deluded. I do not think that he may PM me or email me out of the blue, it's a nice thought (and I have some very nice thoughts about him!!) but I do not HANG on the thought. It is fun to be able to express yourself like this if you so wish, nothing deadly serious or life changing, just simple pleasures that do not harm anyone.

I admit, I love Gerard Butler, there is no other way to say that, pure and simple. And my one, all time, favourite saying? It's 'Never say never', because you never know WHAT may happen in this life.

Hey Slim

Why so serious babes :funnyup: - bet you're glad you got that off your chest cause I am :p . Me thinks us Gals probably save hundreds of dollars in therapy sessions by just expressing how we feel. That's what I love about this place and the respect most give to each other.

Gerard Butler is a man that defies analyzing.So many of the reamrks were heartelt and each of us GALS have very definite opinions about this man mostly good and respectful.He is a man that means different things to many people and has touched our lives in many ways,through the good and the bad and mundane.He brings me a joy that is indescribable,too profound.The article humanized him.Gave some good insights.He raised the bar for himself,and made sacrifices.He said somewhere "That when I look in the mirror I have a communion with my soul"He is his own man,living own his own terms.I for one am proud of his accomplishments.He continues to move me everyday...

Any idiot can get laid when they're famous. That's easy. It's getting laid when you're not famous that takes some talent.

Kevin Bacon

I’ve always loved that quote from actor Kevin Bacon. I suspect GB, because his fame came a bit later on in his career knows both sides of that issue. And it’s not like Gerry is going to Match.Com to find anyone suitable. At this point I suspect he’s way over the wild oats stage and is most likely having a pretty normal dating life when he finds the time. But I mention that quote because it does bring up the challenges that someone like Gerry faces. Lots of available women who all want something, and let’s face it, he most likely wants to meet women who are equals and peers and that can be more difficult if one is famous. I suspect that agents and friends help him out with that.

GB is not much different from any other hard driving successful man who has pushed hard for success. As he pointed out himself it’s not unusual for a man (or woman for that matter) of his age to be unmarried and without children. I agree that the Scottish Stud stuff comes from the tabloid press and Gerry himself consistently points out that most of that stuff is not true.

There nothing wrong with any of us fans dreaming about dating Gerry or someone like him. But I do think the reality is not such a good idea.

It's far more fun to let Gerry and all the roles he played live in our imaginations and hearts. Because that's what we really have responded too, none of us know him really, he does seem like a nice guy and I suspect he will work out whatever issues he has in his private life without our help.

I don't imagine that IF Gerry was to get involved with a fan it would be via sending her a PM on a fansite, and I know that pretty much everyone who would suggest he do that does so with humor. It could be possible for him to meet a fan out somewhere at a club or the gym or the grocery store, and if she was savvy enough wouldn't immediately launch into fan-mode and therefore spark his interest first, before he would know she already knew about him. I don't see him meeting a fan who is at a fan-centric event and whisking her off to fantasyland with him. From his perspective I would see it as probably kind of strange to meet someone who thinks they really KNOW you so well already. I can't quite imagine it. There are fans out there who would never speak a single word to anyone if given the chance to date him, and there are those who would be on the internet in a nanosecond spilling everything to the world. While the latter might be more likely to be done by a fan, I would not presume that every fan, or even most fans, would do that. Someone who cares about him would protect his privacy above all else.

As for myself, I'm not hoping Gerry will be "into me" - I've no delusions along those lines. I'm here because I really like his work, he is the best thing about any project he does, plus I think he is just about a perfect physical speciman which houses an incredibly intelligent mind, a sharp and quirky wit, a heart of marshmallow, and enough Scottish grit to make him just about irresistable. I don't think there is anything about me that would make him want to grab my hand and dash to the altar (or the bedroom, or even the nearest coffee shop for that matter). I think I can make him laugh, as I did the first time I met him, but beyond that moment of amusement there is and never will be anything between us, and that is as it should be - for me.

Fan is a broad term really. I don't think you have to belong to a fansite to be one. I think anyone who shows up where he is going to be as far premiers or on the set of a movie, etc., would be considered to be "fans".

There would be nothing to provoke Gerry to try to connect with someone on a fansite, sight unseen! I can't imagine what would. If I was so fortunate to be close enough to him in person to get his attention, I probably would not reveal the magnitude of my fandom to him. I would be too embarrassed for one thing. In other words, I couldn't stand there and gush! Not that there's anything wrong with gushing, but for me, it's not my style.

I'll reserve any comment about what I would say or do when I come face to face with him because I have no idea really what my ultimate reaction will be until it happens. I'll just go with the flow!
