Since Gerard Butler got out of rehab just a few days before the Oscars (and the all-important cocaine-soaked post-Oscar parties), we’ve been detailing his increasingly sloppy exploits. He’s probably hooked up with Lindsay Lohan at the Chateau Marmont, he’s been clubbing and party-hopping all over LA, and he was a mess at Coachella, even bangin’ some “mystery brunette” in the Porta-Potty. A source familiar with The Butler’s family in Scotland even told us that his family is seriously worried about him, and they just want Gerry to come home and get clean. I’ve got to wonder – why isn’t someone stepping in? Where are his friends? Or is he just surrounded by Lohan-esque enablers? Well, The Enquirer claims that Jennifer Aniston and Charlize Theron (!) are trying to get Gerry to clean up his act.
Gerard Butler has been partying nonstop since leaving rehab, and he’s on the brink of collapse, sources say. Now Butler’s celeb pals, including Jennifer Aniston and Charlize Theron are begging Gerard to ditch the party scene for fear of suffering a relapse.
“Gerard hasn’t come up for air since leaving rehab,” an insider told The Enquirer. “he’s out three to five nights a week and partying harder than ever. He’s flirting with disaster.”
Since checking out of rehab, he’s reportedly been spotted partying at the Vanity Fair Oscar party, LA’s Troubadour Club, the SXSW music festival in Austin, and the Coachella festival. He’s also been seen with Lindsay Lohan at one of his favorite LA hangouts, the Chateau Marmont.
The source says: “Gerard’s friends all think he’s setting himself up for trouble. Jen and Charlize are both trying to convince him to treat himself to a long vacation in a remote spot where he won’t be tempted by booze and women. Jen even got her boyfriend Justin Theroux to invite Gerard to tag along on sober, guys-only outings with his family-oriented buddies. Everyone is praying Gerard doesn’t crash and burn again.”

Does Charlize even know Gerard Butler? Are they even acquainted? They’ve never worked together. As for Jennifer Aniston… God knows if she and Gerry have even spoken since their whirlwind finger-to-booty twerker moment two years ago. They’re probably social friends. Aniston tried to get The Butler to play along and be her boyfriend for the film’s promotion, but it didn’t pan out (he picked up a French chick halfway through the European tour!). Still, I’d like to think that Gerard has made some friends in the industry who actually care about his well-being. Maybe someone will talk some sense into him.
