Skinny Gerard Butler goes home to Scotland to play in a charity soccer match


Last week, in the middle of a post about what Lea Michele was wearing, I included some Gerard Butler photos that most of you ignored. We actually got emails asking why we didn’t cover the new photos of Gerard! So to you proud and moob-loving few, here you go: a whole post devoted to My Gerry.

Gerry has been all over the place lately, mostly NYC and LA, but these photos are from Glasgow. Gerry flew into his beloved Scotland on Monday, and once he touched down, he happily posed for photos with fans. He came to Glasgow to PLAY at a benefit football (“soccer”) match last night – the match is still said to be a “benefit for ex-Celtic player John Kennedy” but Kennedy requested that all of the proceeds from the match go towards relief efforts for the famine in East Africa. Many of the great past and present players from the Celtics and Manchester United played – and the Celtics won!

As far as these photos of Gerry, some upon his arrival in Glasgow, and some at the match – yes, he continues to look thinner and thinner. Do we have a problem on our hands? Has Gerard developed an eating disorder? I don’t know. I always find him hot, no matter how much he weighs, but I do prefer him with a bit more meat on his bones. I like a man with an appetite. Gerry looks like he would wrestle me for the last lettuce leaf. And he would lose. So, yes… he’s too thin. His once gorgeous arms now look kind of sad. His legs are still pretty hot, though. And he gets bonus points for playing in the match, and for doing it all for charity. Sweet man.

Oh, and Gerry just got another job too – he’s just been attached to a new film called The Bricklayer, where he’ll be playing an FBI agent gone rogue. That means he’s trying an American accent again, right? Oh, dear. I love him so much, but the man can’t do accents.

    Hell-lo! Those photos woke me up faster than my double espresso! ;-)

    “Too thin”…Are you out of your mind? He looks fit and toned, strong and healthy. The definition in his arms and chest is absolutely drool-worthy!

    How can you not like a firm, rock-hard, ready-for-action Gerard Butler? LOL

  2. brin says:

    I think he looks good (love the crotch shot!). I’m usually willing to share, but we may just have to have a bitchfight over Gerry today, Kaiser!
    *looks for shank*

  3. Waldemar says:

    Nice head of curls, though.

    I am still hoping that the slimming is for a role or something.

  4. mew says:

    Oh lord the “Never good enough for you” trend is hitting male celebs now too. After 300 he relaxed and all the sudden he was all over tabloids with his “disgusting beer gut and moobs!!” and now he’s suddenly “too skinny, oh lord, eat a hamburger.”

    He’s fit, very fit it seems. Doesn’t look much different from Matthew McConaghey, especially with that hair.

  5. Emma says:

    Oh. Oh dear. He looks… off. Just not right somehow. And I’m not keen on the hair either, it kinda looks like a really bad dye job. Maybe it is for a role. One wee thing, as a Scot, I can tell you it’s just Celtic, never ‘the Celtics’, although confusingly, their biggest rivals are ‘Rangers’ and sometimes referred to as ‘the Gers’. We like to perplex.

  6. Samigirl says:

    I tend to be a chubby chaser, so I prefer my Gerry with a little meat on his bones. However, the curls are adorable! I’ve got my slut shank ready for action, Brin. Bring it, sister ;-)

  7. brin says:

    @Samigirl…uhoh…a gang war! OK, I’m ready for all of ya!!!

  8. Rose says:

    I don’t understand this kind of attitude. He looks fit and like he’s been taking care of himself, something he clearly had not been doing for a while. Good for him.

  9. merski says:

    Ah screw Butler, that’s Henrik Larsson in the first photo!!!! LEGEND!!!! King Henke! <3

  10. gee says:

    Gerry!! EAT!! Be fat, you’re so hot that way! Now you just look like a druggie :/

  11. Kelli says:

    DAMMIT!!!!!!! HE LOOKS F-ING HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Got his “300″ abs back! YOU GO GERRY!!!!!!!

  12. Pyewacket says:

    His body looks better, but what is up with the hair? Since when is he a weird looking blonde?

  13. kibbles says:

    I’m sorry to say this, but he looks awful. Even the abs can’t make up for what is happening to his face and the rest of his body. He’s not aging well either. Oh well. I guess we’ll always have 300, PS I Love You, and the Ugly Truth to remind us of when Gerard was hotter.

  14. jinni says:

    I usually like slender muscular men, but I don’t think this looks healthy on him. I think it’s the fact that his face looks wrong. He just doesn’t have the bone structure to pull off this look without looking ill. He’s one of those people that needs to keep some weight on them. Kind of how some women like Zoe Saladana (sp?) looks fine skinny, but Kate Bosworth looks like an unhealthy, bobblehead at the same/silimar weight. Some people can just pull slender off better than others and he’s not one of them.

  15. madpoe says:

    I feel bad for the girl with the pit stains. poor girl.

  16. kpist says:

    “and he would lose”, love that, too funny

  17. meg says:

    Even hotter with the grey hair…didn’t think that was even possible!!!

  18. ladybert62 says:

    From the neck down, he looks great. From the neck up, he needs a shave and a haircut – maybe he doesnt have the two-bits!

  19. Eve says:

    Hmmm…his tongue in that first picture is giving me thoughts.

    *I’m thinking about ice cream, people! Geez, you guys have such dirty minds.

  20. Bubbling says:

    What’s with the Einstein face on first photo? He can still get it, but a hair cut wouldn’t hurt

  21. RocketMerry says:

    Enough with the blondness and enough with the thinning, Gerald. A bit of fat is good for you. And for us.

  22. Nymeria says:

    Erm, ice cream, yeah. Yeah, I was thinking about ice cream, too.

  23. SolitaryAngel says:

    All different kinds of ice cream…especially ice cream in Australia……wayyyy down under!

  24. Anna says:

    He’s totally lost it IMO his face needs more meat now he’s older !

  25. Kelly says:

    @jinni, I totally agree – he is a man who’s meant to have meat on his bones. He was so incredibly hot in 300 – just huge, solid, raw… masculinity. *fans self* I just don’t like skinny men; I have to have a nice solid man, pref. with a natural musculature – no gym rats. I was just reading about Gerald’s training regimen for 300 – involved things like a million pull-ups, push-ups, throwing truck tires (!).

    I don’t think he looks so great now – the hair – he’s meant to be dark. I guess it’s marginally better than when he let himself go completely.

  26. Chickie Baby says:

    He’s reportedly working on a movie about surfers, which could explain the super-lean physique and longer, blonder hair…not that I’m complaining, or anything.

    Thanks, Kaiser, for some new pix! Gerry always makes my day go better.

  27. Angelina says:

    Being a major Celtic fan I was at the game last night and it was amazing

  28. Melissa says:

    He looks a lot like Matthew McConaughey. What the???

  29. buckley says:

    Love his “Einstein” shot…so adorable.
    The torso, however, I just don’t understand what’s going on there…

  30. wtf? says:

    why do i feel the compulsion to attack him with my dog’s clippers, sheer off a couple of inches from his Andy Dick hair doo and feed him a cupcake or two…..

    that being said, i still would nom nom nom on this dogs bone anyday…

  31. Shy says:

    Gosh that haircut. I want to cry when I remember how hot he looked in 300. In few years he aged so much. It’s just sad.

    And for the love of your fans – CUT YOUR HAIR. You look like an idiot.

  32. JuJuBee says:

    Hmmm….what is up with my Butler? I don’t like this look at all. He’s a big manly Scotsman. Look it Gerry!

  33. Jordi says:

    Son of Matthew McConaughey and Bradley Cooper.

  34. Overya says:

    @Jordi I was meant to type the samething. Gerald is sooooooooooooooooooooo hot in those photos. Thank you CB for a very entertaining piece of photos hahaha

  35. anonymous says:

    Gerard Butler is the hottest man on this planet.No other star can compete.What an out and out doll.The best in the world.The other stars can’t compete no matter what. Gerry is the only star for me. Body and face is just incredable. To bad they can’t clone him. Gerry I will love you till the end and then far beyond.

  36. John Wayne Lives says:

    I swear to god, for a moment I thought he was Andy Dick lol

  37. Lorrie says:

    I’m assuming all that surfing and preparing for his upcoming movie “Mavericks” is kicking his arse. ;) I’m going to be in NYC in early Dec in the West Village area maybe there will be a .00001% chance that I’ll bump into him! :P

  38. A formidable share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing slightly evaluation on this. And he in truth purchased me breakfast because I discovered it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the deal with! However yeah Thnkx for spending the time to debate this, I really feel strongly about it and love studying more on this topic. If doable, as you turn into experience, would you mind updating your blog with more details? It’s extremely helpful for me. Huge thumb up for this weblog post!

    He does look too thin to me. I think he goes to extremes; he is either eating everything in sight or on a very restricted diet. I liked him best as Andrea Merek, Attila, Beowulf, and in Wrath of Gods being himself. I prefer him with long hair touting a sword and with some meat on his bones. He was so sexy in Wrath of Gods when he was doing the interview and peeling himself out of his wet suit. He was neither too thin nor too thick~~~he was just right!

  40. Tara says:

    This is how he looked in 1999 before getting all bulky. But I like chubby Gerry!
