12/3 - Superfan Jets to See Premieres

Recommended Posts

:thankyou: Raynbow!

AN INVERKEITHING entertainment buff jetted out for the New York and LA premieres of film star Gerard Butler's new movie.

Superfan Moira Fraser (39), Cochrane Avenue, mixed her love of travelling, entertainment and the hunky Scots actor to go star-spotting for the release of Law Abiding Citizen.

And, incredibly, she has also attended the prestigious Golden Globes ceremony in LA every year since 2000.

Ms Fraser, a flight administrator and pictured right with star Gerard, said, "Where some people are into sports, I've always been an entertainment fan.

"I've met Gerard quite a few times.

"He's one of the most fan-friendly celebs out there and that's why he's got so many loyal supporters.

"Apart from being handsome, he's just a lovely guy with a great personality who has gone from strength to strength."

She booked her flights for the New York September world premiere but managed to combine the holiday with a trip to the West Coast after winning a competition for the invitation-only LA premiere.

She even managed to get tickets for the Glasgow premiere that screened earlier this month.

Ms Fraser was last year asked to be a moderator on GBgals.com which has around 7000 members worldwide.

As well as raising funds for charity, she meets up with other Butler buffs from across the world and has watched A-list stars like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, George Clooney and Johnny Depp walk the red carpet at the Golden Globes.

She buys a package annually that lets fans stay at the Beverly Hills Hilton, see the ceremony and rehearsals as well as "hang-out" near the stars themselves.

"At the Globes, celebrities know fans will be there and they really make themselves available," she said.

"It's the best award show because it's like a party where they can let their hair down.

"You've got the very best of film and TV actors so anybody who is anybody is there."

The 2003 film, Timeline, first introduced her to the Paisley-born actor's talents but it was Spartan epic 300 that finally converted her to all things Butler.

She finished, "It's a great social activity which you make so many friends through so I combine it with holidays.

"With Gerry, we just support him and go to the public events but don't intrude on his personal life.

"He realises it's more than just about him, though he brought everyone together - Gerard has the best fans in the world."

And what's Moira's verdict on Law Abiding Citizen?

"It's fantastic, regardless of what the critics say.

"It's edge of your seat stuff all the way through - you don't see things coming and there are some truly shocking moments.

"This was an important film for Gerry because he both stars in it and is a producer.

"It's like the film Se7en (1995) where you jump out of your seat - there are many moments like that," she said.

Moira ~

I am VERY proud of you! This article is great!

I know how gracious you are with others whom have never met G when you go to these types of things. You're ALWAYS there handy to take a pic or introduce or whatever.

Perhaps now some may come to understand that for you, this is what makes you happy. As you said in the article, some are into sports, but traveling to events is YOUR hobby. Well said! My ex spent SCADS of cash participating in his sports (hunting, fishing, golf, getting drunk...oh wait, that's NOT a sport? :kisswink:) and attending events. I don't see how this is any different.

Much love!

This came about from them seeing the Glasgow Herald Article. They found me through Facebook and asked how i came to be at all 3 premieres and thought it would make for an interesting story as there are not many exciting things happening locally to report :lmao:. I said I would only do it if they represented fans in a good light as I know what bad press we can get and I'm pleased to say they did.

While I knew it was going to be in today's paper with it being a local paper I did not expect to come online and see my own google alert :rotflmao:

I had not told any of my friends locally and got a call this morning from my friend who does not quite get "Gerry" and she said "you're right by the wedding section and you come across quite normal". Tonight when I came out of my local shop a woman stopped me; she had to be about 60; and said "aww hen i saw the article he's awfy braw and i saw the film Saturday and they should be giving out Tena Lady before they go in as the sight of that bare body just made me moist". I didn't know where to put myself but i told her if she had a computer to come on Gals :rotflmao:.
