Kilt-clad Gerard Butler brings his cute mom as date for premiere


Oh, let me introduce you to my future mother-in-law, Margaret. She’s Gerard Butler’s mum, and she was his date on Sunday for the UK premiere of Law Abiding Citizen. Isn’t she cute? I know she’ll love me when Gerry and I get married. And at our wedding, I know that Gerry will probably be wearing the kilt. The premiere was actually held in Glasgow, Scotland, so I guess that explains the kilt in these pictures. Plus, Gerry probably wanted really easy access for… no, I won’t go there. Maybe he was hoping to recreate Marilyn Monroe’s Seven-Year Itch skirt-billow for the premiere. You know what I think really happened? I think Gerry’s mommy made him wear the kilt.

According to Pacific Coast News, 70 of Butler’s own family and friends were at the premiere, which basically means no pub was safe in Glasgow post-premiere. The Sun also notes that Gerry “completed the outfit by teaming the traditional clobber with a sporran.” Which sounds absolutely filthy. I’d like to show Gerry my sporan. And I’d like to check out his clobber. By the way, doesn’t it look so cold in Scotland? I bet Gerry was quite literally freezing his balls off.

I just wanted to mention a few more Gerry-related items. First of all, his 40th birthday was last week, so happy belated birthday to him! The big 4-0. I wonder if this birthday will make him come to his senses and finally call me? Second item: I finally saw The Ugly Truth, and it was cuter than I expected. I hate to admit it… but Gerard and Katherine Heigl had a lot of chemistry together. Looks like she doesn’t grate on everyone she meets! That being said, all I wanted to do when I watched that movie was force Gerard into a hot shower with ten bars of soap. I realize that his character’s deal wasn’t all suave and sophistication, but did he have to look so dirty? Anyway, I’m sure we can work it out, and if not, I’ll ask his mom to get my back. She looks like she would like me, doesn’t she?

    Damn that man is delicious…

    Which one is which?

    Calm down, only kidding!

    I’m very sorry, but I don’t understand this man’s appeal AT ALL. I won’t deny that he is a capable actor, but he isn’t anything outstanding either. He is, to be honest, merely functional.

    What baffles me immensely, though, is the obsession that his legions of hormonally-crazed fans have with his “maleness” and his “looks”. OK, he has nice eyes but Kaiser, he didn’t just look dirty in ‘The Ugly Truth’. He always looks like he needs a set of clean clothes, a shower and a shave, as well as a stint in a detox facility; what’s with the permanently bloated face?

    As for his character… ugh! He always behaves like a 12-year-old with Attention Deficit Disorder who had forgotten to take his Ritalin. Personally, in interviews, he comes across as infantile and not particularly bright, but that’s just my opinion, I guess. I suppose that he really is a misunderstood, brooding macho that’s just waiting for a good woman, like The Phantom of the Opera and King Leonidas combined into one dumpy roll of immaturity.

    I think that a good publicist can work wonders for some people’s looks and general appeal.

  4. Kris says:

    Hahahaha! I laughed my arse off reading this one! Love it! Kaiser I really think you should get some help with your Gerard obsession.. ;)

  5. Green Is Good says:

    That man makes a kilt look gooood!!

  6. Mairead says:

    God The Sun really are the biggest morons, even The Daily Fail comes second. The sporran IS part of the “traditional clobber”. It basically means purse. It’s the hairy doodad hanging around his hips. God I hate that rag.
    Something seems odd about the tartan – I’ve not come across an entirely grey colourway before. Is this the Butler-clan tartan or is it just fashion plaid?

    But anyway, he seems in good humour and his mother (aka Kaiser’s future MIL) seems very proud of him. :)

    “It’s the hairy doodad hanging around his hips.”

    ok, you KNOW why I laughed at that one, Mairead. what was it you called someone the other day? “brazen hussey”? ;)

  8. Rosalee says:

    ****sigh**** Gerrard Butler is a handsome, handsome devil, he and Robert Downy Jr. could make me change my ways..

  9. River says:

    It’s got to be a fashion plaid and not a tartan. I’ve lived in Scotland for many years, have been to some of the best wool mills and tartan shops, and I have never seen one that looked like his.
    Looks like the Butler tartan has a slightly less pleasing red-yellow-blue colour scheme. I can see why he chose to wear the all grey…

  10. Bill Hicks is God says:

    The Hamilton tartan is grey – it’s certainly not Butler (which is really ‘fruity’ lookin’ actually…okay I take that back. It’s REAL bright)

    Could be his mother’s clan affiliation he’s wearing.

  11. Iggles says:

    I love when men wear kilts. It’s pretty awesome. Go Scots!

  12. Pickel says:

    Butler has said before on Jay Leno that his family doesn’t have a tartan because they’re actually Irish in heritage.

  13. justathought says:

    everyone loves guy who adores their mom and looks good in a kilt.

  14. viper says:

    LMFAO! The man is a hoot! lol look at him and his KILT lol!

  15. Feebee says:

    I don’t see how Gerrid justifies the adoration… the loyal and fanatical adoration of fans but I finally got round to seeing The Ugly Truth and while a bit disappointed by the predictable storytelling and outcome, there were a few LOL moments and I agree some good chemistry with Heigl and Butler. He was kinda cute and if that’s what he looks like “dirty” then I like him a little dirty.

  16. Bill Hicks is God says:

    Pickel, yes the Irish (and Welsh) have tartans. Butler was probably just being lazy and didn’t feel like explaining a wonderful and convoluted thing like tartans to a dogteat like Leno.

    The Scots historically are of Irish heritage anyway – they came to the west coast of Scotland and set up a kingdom there. Eventually they allied and intermarried with the Picts.

  17. Rae says:

    Kaiser, I too watched The Ugly Truth over the weekend. It had some cute parts. And I agree, Katherine Heigl does really well in those roles. I love 27 Dresses. However … Mr. Butler. Well, he didn’t look so great. In addition to looking unwashed, he looked a little puffy. Just his face really. Like he had stuffed marshamallows in his cheeks. He was Chipmunk Gerard. And he couldn’t drop the accent. He tried, but it kept coming through. He needs to stick with roles where he can keep his lovely accent.

  18. Jayla says:

    These pics are so adorable. He’s just gorgeous, love the pics with his mom.

  19. Mairead says:

    Well, yes Butler is a Hiberno-Norman name but traditionally-Irish clans can have tartan as there would have been a lot of travel between especially Northern Ireland and Scotland in the past. But it probably wasn’t the same family indicator as in Scotland. i’ll have to ask one of my colleagues who’s a bit of an expert in these things.
    Normally, for those without a traditional clan tartan, I believe it’s the Pride of Scotland plaid that’s normally worn, which is kind of greenish hues – I guess perhaps he thought that a grey.

    my friends were “Unofficial Kilt Inspectors’ who took up the mantle whenever the Scottish rugby team played here :twisted: . We learnt plenty about the kilt then – including what a real Scotsman wore under it! 8O .

  20. Kelly says:

    Didn’t he turn 40? That’s a little long-in-the-tooth to be playing the “I’m such an adorable, insufferable little rake, aren’t I?” game.

    That said, I think it’s cute when MFPs (moms of famous people) walk down the red carpet clutching their digital cameras.

  21. orion70 says:

    I wonder if he went “regimental”

  22. tooey says:

    I love Gerard Butler and there’s a certain kind of man (Johnny Depp, Russell Crowe are two) that can look dirty as all get out and it doesn’t matter. However, that said, even Gerard wasn’t enough to get me to watch more than thirty minutes of the Ugly Truth…

  23. Eileen Yover says:

    Oh YUMMY-Kaiser thank you for this totally delish pic of Gerry in this sexy ass kilt!
    I’d love to sneak a hand under there and squish his tush! …..ok calming down, deep breaths…

  24. GatsbyGal says:

    OMG Law Abiding Citizen. What a great movie that was.

  25. Ummmmmm says:

    Ummmmm. I find Gerard Butler VERY handsome. DID YOU SEE 300??? Jeeeez. He’s rugged and yet soo pretty…like a young Sean Connery. And I also LOVE Henry Ian Cusick, Desmond on Lost (both Scotish). Who doesn’t like a pretty face and a great accent?? He’s probably a cad…already linked with several Hollywood starlets, however, gotta love a guy who brings his mom to the red carpet. I’ve seen him interviewed several times and that is where his real attractiveness lies. He’s smart (he’s has a law degree, passed the bar, and briefly worked as a lawyer in Scotland) and funny and has TONS of humility. Hope he stays a good guy, like Tom Hanks, and avoids the pitfalls of stardom like the arrogant, jackholes Russell Crowe and Colin Farrell.

    HEHEEEEEEEEEE Giddy excitement ow lol.

    Hey what is up with his shoe lace???

  27. jennab says:

    i need a strong wind! holy jesus and the mary chain! Kaiser fyi he’s my baby daddy, but you can tame his manwhore ways.

  28. BGAL says:

    Great pics of a GREAT SCOTSMAN..GERARD JAMES BUTLER..a gorgeous, wonderful and very handsone, sexy man, proudly showing off his heritage. Love him for doing so, he is breathtaking in that kilt suit. More please, Gerard. oxoxox

  29. Gerryfan says:

    Ok. Gerry is AMAZING!! the whole scruffy look works for him! I love to kiss a guy and feel his 5 o’clock shadow… it just adds to a mans sexiness. Gerry IS the SEXIEST MAN ALIVE! Anyone who says differently really needs to check their mental capacity because it is obviously off. I hope he goes for the younger women, if so I am always here. I am a Scottish girl and I am proud to be one! Love how he shows his heritage. He should where one to the Oscars, to show them where he came from. LOVE YOU GERRY!!
