What a lovely introduction for Gerry. There are many industry people who see what we see and it's a delight to see him recognized. I'm not thrilled with some of his nuttier fans but all in all it was a wonderful reception for him.

Thanks Stu for bringing this to our attention. Too much is never enough! :D

This is why they pre-screen the questions at Comic Con. It was a GREAT interview until the end. But of course, Gerry had nothing but class. And he would have stayed and answered more questions had it not gotten "ridiculous".

I loved how funny and interesting and thoughtful he was about all his answers. This was a great testament to the man and actor Gerry is. The introduction was the best I've ever heard. I need to transcribe it.

Thank you again, Stu.

With my youtube troubles, I can't see any of these new videos. Any chance Mel is working on getting them to MM?

You know I was having trouble w/ YouTube a couple of weeks ago, but I rebooted after a couple of days and it worked after that. I also think I had just run an update on my anti-virus, which may have caused the problem.

One thing this video proves to me is even though he probably thinks its nice to have the quiet respect of a crowd; as shown in some recent European premieres; it's pretty obvious IMO he loves the adoration of a noisy crowd.

These were great videos thanks Stu.

I was actually surprised how rowdy they were as I expected middle eastern women to be a bit more reserved. I guess Gerry has that effect on women all over the world :funnyup: As for the last question - got to admire the gaul of the woman :funnyup: On the whole it was quite a respectful interview with the odd "typical fan" question from the audience. Gerry held himself well.

All very true points. :) He really does encourage the noise. I think he did that in every video! :lol: He's so funny. Ah, he deserves all the adoration in the world!

I woke up this morning a little less wound so tight and yes, Gerry handled the silliness well. I, personally, don't appreciate that stuff, though. It was a good interview until that point, and I was a bit disappointed in the fans. Ah, well. He sure knows how to drag that inner angst out of any woman, that's for sure.

I enjoyed the interview. The last question was stupid,and annoying. I really don't think all the women there were from Dubai. The one that asked the last genius question sounded American to me. Way to represent.

Buy the way. No one get dirct TV. They are awful with service and making eroneous credit card charges. I don't like thieves especially corporate thieves.

I was frustrated with the last question too- it was beyond silly. But that’s just me; I’ve never been gushy even when confronted with an attractive man. He such an intelligent interesting guy, why waste his time in that sort of venue with that sort of question? At this point he knows women find him attractive, I don’t think he needs to be beaten over the head with it all the time although he may enjoy a certain amount of rowdiness from fans, it does not need to be the only reaction he gets.

I'm glad I'm not alone in this. :) And yes she did sound American. *tsk tsk*

I think he was genuine in wanting to take questions from the audience, but it just became childish.

Cest la vie ... he has moved on and so should we.

Can someone with younger ears than me please tell me what the group of girls yelled?

I love that million dollar smile of his! I noticed that his mic was fastened on the level of a button that usually Gerry doesn't fasten. No man cleavage in Dubai!

Gerry cracks me up talking about "shrinkage" then asking if it's OK to talk about it.

The girls sounded American to me. I did not detect any middle eastern accents. Interesting.

Thanks, Stu and thank you Gerry, for being so.....YOU!

Well (and I hate doing this when I could be totally off) isn't Dubai fairly Americanized? ...Certainly much more so than any other place in the Middle East? ...And all students learn English?

I know we have at least one gal on here from Dubai, but I don't know how often she posts (and can't remember who it is). I'd love to get an opinion from someone in the know, but I definitely thought I detected just a hint of an accent...

*SIGH* I just loved hearing Gerry back to almost his full Scottish brogue! Loved his usual funny little stories, quip answers and his never ending flirtatious charming wit!

Thanks once again Stu for keeping us Gals happy! You are a Prince!
