Gerard Butler, Ralph Fiennes & “the closest thing to a homosexual experience”


I mentioned these photos yesterday, but now that I’m looking through them again, I’m just not feeling the homoeroticism. Gerard is thin and sure, he looks great in that black polo. And Ralph is scruffy – all for a stage role in London. Why are these two not giving it to me right now? Maybe I’m just tired? True story – I’ve had really bad sleep patterns lately. Usually, when I see two of my guys, two of my beloved accented gentlemen, together in some kind of embrace, their scruff intertwining into a tangled, sweaty heap of hotness, my biscuits will tingle. I’m not feeling it here. I think maybe if I added Daniel Craig into the mix? See, the thought of Danny Craig standing there with Gerard and Ralph, that did something to my biscuits. Now add Javier Bardem. Oooh, that’s good.


Anyway, these are some photos from the press conference for Coriolanus yesterday in Toronto. According to reports, it was a love fest with everyone singing Ralph’s praises as a director and actor. Ralph said about the film, “The play has resonance with the times we’re in, especially now with so much uncertainty in the world … and the constant tension between leadership and the voice of the people. It’s a continually resonant political thriller with a Greek tragedy at centre of it.” Oh, here’s a good quote – from Gerard, talking about a fight sequence he did with Ralph: “The fight that we had, which to this day remains the closest thing to a homosexual experience that I’ve had, and may be a career-changing thing for both of us.” Ralph quipped, “We rehearsed that fight exhaustively.” Oh, that’s good stuff. Talk more about this, boys.


Oh, and YES, that’s Jessica “Bitch is everywhere this year” Chastain.



In case Ralph wasn’t doing it for you, here’s a photo of Gerard getting homoerotic with Rodrigo Santoro.

    You want to know why you’re not getting that tingle? I’ll tell you.. because Ralph (who is normally a good looking guy) looks like a creepy uncle right now you never want to be near. He looks gross right now.

  2. Flan says:

    They look smoking hot.

  3. anemoneblue says:

    My God, I just don’t see the appeal in Butler. Gerard is like the creepy guy that won’t leave you alone at a party. He is just not aging well.

  4. mia girl says:

    Personally I don’t like Gerard Butler so lean.

    And Ralph, normally yes, but in these pics, well… I have to agree with @Mindy’s “creepy uncle” analogy

  5. Kiki says:

    Rodrigo is looking so thin these days. He used to have a fuller face, and looked so much more beautiful. Now, he’s just ok for me.

  6. Sakyiwaa says:

    Lol. Nope. Not feeling it…

  7. Booboocita says:

    What’s looking thin is Rodrigo’s hairline. Too bad. He was so delicious in Love Actually.

  8. Sloane Wyatt says:

    Scruff and Scruffier don’t do it for me.

  9. Chickie Baby says:

    ::SIGH:: Oh, how I love these two. Separately, together, however I can get them, I love them. But Ralph and GB are not for everybody. I cannot, to this day, put into words my attraction to either of these men, but it’s there!

  10. Irka says:

    I still find Ralph very hot, the beard really doesn’t bother me, I’d still do him everywhere!
    I’m not too keen on Gerard, he’s just looking old and unhealthy lately, Ralph will forever be beautiful.
    I’m glad the films getting so much praise 🙂

  11. John Wayne Lives says:

    Ralph, go find the sexy, cause we all know you have it. But I’d still hit it 🙂
    Gerard…esh, first of all, put on some weight and stop with the highlights already. Maybe that will help… but if don’t stop with the below d-list famewhores, you’re gonna lose it forever. And who wants that to happen?
    Step it up gentlemen!

  12. yorkvillian says:

    Kaiser darling you have to see the movie. I gave me the tingles.

  13. wtf? says:

    Why do people not consider that actors look a certain way for a role. It should be your first guess. Gerry’s hair, Ralph’s beard.

    Ralph is playing a character right now on the stage in London for which he needs to look the way he does. He’s not going to shave it all off to please you all.

    Gerry has the hair long because apparently they are doing reshoots for Playing the Field, maybe he figured that was a possiblity AND he is likely leaving it long for his movie he starts filming in a few weeks, Mavericks.

  14. I Choose Me says:

    I agree that Gerard looks better when he’s a little meatier but I still think he looks good here. As for Ralph, I’ll take him any how I can get him and I’m a gal who don’t mind scruff so my biscuits are definitely tingling. Mmhm.

  15. Melissa says:

    I was starting to say that Ralph is officially too old for me being that he is twelve years older than I am and looking the way he does for his recent role….. but no. I still would. And would. And would. Even with that damn beard and hairline.

  16. GimmeABreak says:

    I’d take them both…at the same time!

  17. Roxy750 says:

    Gerard has too much foundation on.

  18. Calli Pygian says:

    Beard= loss of hotness. Please shave toute suite!!

    Gerard doesn’t do much for me, but what is up with the frequent weight fluctuations? Roles? Or rolls?

    Oh, Javier, Javier… *sigh*

  19. Maria says:

    It’s the battle of the sexy accepts! Ralph in all his English finery, Gerard with his Highlander brogue, Santoro with that silky Brazilian lilt… and did someone mention Javier? Gah.

  20. Leigh says:

    Gerard def is way more my type when he has a litte more weight on him… a la.. ps. I love you. Peak Hotness.

  21. Linda says:

    I don’t understand what some people are seeing sometimes. Butler is one gorgeous man. Those pictures up above are to die for. He looks good with weight or slim as he is now. I personally thinks he looks beautiful..

  22. Madrid says:

    Mindy, lol, you´re absolutely right. I love Ralph but wth is that hair? curious how the hair style changes the sexyness

  23. Sara says:

    It is working for me! I don’t normally have a thing for Gerard but Ralph ANYTIME ANYWHERE!!! Is it wrong that I am turned on by the man sandwich but I can’t bear to hear of my darling Ralph with some woman?

  24. anonymous says:

    Linda ,I love you and agree completly about Gerard Butler.He is the most beautiful man on this planet.He looks better than any of the other men above.He definetly has the most beautiful hair and hairline.His face is the most beauitful of all of them.You and I definetly think alike.I like him fat or thin.He is the most beautiful either way.Wow what a gorgeous man

  25. pato says:

    oh Gerry!!!!

  26. Sam says:

    The problems are: 1- Gerard is now too thin & his hair is too scraggly & 2- my dear Ralph does not look good with that beard… and this is coming from someone who said “Voldermort is hot” when he came on the screen. But the beard/mustache thing is not working 🙁

  27. Laura says:

    Yay, Rodrigo! I haven’t seen him around in ages.

  28. deborah scott says:

  29. Debi Scott says:
