Gerard Butler treats his pug Lolita better than any girlfriend


Here’s Gerard Butler with his longtime girl, Lolita. Lolita is the tiny little pug, by the way. Isn’t she cute? I’m not sure about the name “Lolita” for a tiny little dog whose daddy is a notorious womanizer, but sure. He loves that puppy, and Lolita gets lots of quality time with her dad. Speaking of, The Enquirer’s gossip guy, Mike Walker, had this funky little story about Gerard and Lolita is bed together:

Upon awakening at his trendy West Hollywood hotel, Gerard Butler phoned room service and ordered breakfast for two – and he blew the waiter’s mind when he arrived to find the hunky heartthrob in bed with Lolita, his tiny pug pooch! Snuggled up next to his pet and perusing the morning paper, Butler – in town promoting his new flick, ‘Machine Gun Preacher’ – ordered the waiter to set up both trays on his bed. Doing as he was told, the guy lifted silver lids to reveal two plates of scrambled eggs and Lolita leaped off her pillow and lapped up one plate before Butler could even sign the bill!

Now, Gerry owns a house in LA. Why would he be staying in a hotel? Maybe he’s doing renovations. Maybe he just likes to stay in hotels. Maybe he got some action. Maybe he just wanted to treat Lolita to a romantic evening. I don’t know. But I hope this story is true. Any dog owner knows that look in their dog’s eye when the dog is debating whether or not to make a play for some people food. I feed my dog before I eat dinner, just to ensure that he won’t spend my whole mealtime giving me his best “pathetic-sad-feed me” face.

Gerry also covers the new issue of LA Confidential Mag. Here are some highlights:


The Butler on his current career: “It’s not like a supernova anymore, the thing that got me here so fast. Or maybe not fast, because it did happen over 12 years. I counted the other day, and I’ve actually made 33 movies, so it didn’t happen overnight. That passion and energy—maybe not just in the making of the movies, but in the publicizing of the movies—everything that it took to get here, I don’t have that drive anymore. But I also don’t feel that I need that drive anymore. I’m at a spot where the movies come to me more easily, and maybe I’m more at a place of a kind of spiritual acceptance that what’s for me won’t go past me. That’s good for me, because to be honest, as much as I love what I do, it’s not the be-all and end-all anymore.”

Jack of all genres: “I think the one thing I have going for me is an ability to play a wide array of roles and genres, and therefore I want to keep challenging myself and keep surprising people,” he says. “That’s the most exciting thing for me as an actor: Nobody can ever define you. They go, ‘Oh, he’s the action guy.’ ‘Oh, he’s the comedy guy.’ I’m not any of those things, and I never want to be categorized like that. People shouldn’t know what to expect from me.”

He doesn‘t like the fame: “I love what I do,” says Butler, “but the more successful I’ve become, the more I’ve realized it’s the things around acting I don’t love. I sometimes wish I could just go make a movie and then disappear. I never thought I would be like that, actually. I was surprised at my reaction, because I love acting. It’s harder than anything I’ve ever done, but it also provides more fun and fulfillment than anything else I’ve ever done.” Though cognizant that “whining” about celebrity rarely engenders great sympathy (“‘Screw you!’ ‘Bring out the violin!’” he mockingly says), Butler makes it clear it’s the double-edged nature of public recognition that’s gotten under his skin; encounters with genuine admirers still give the movie fan in him a relatable kick—the paparazzi, not so much.

I always like his interviews – in my mind, I’ve created this image of The Butler – some horny buffoon, a sex-crazed, uninhibited eating-and-sex machine with no shame. But he’s actually a thoughtful, self-aware dude who seems pretty grounded. Sigh… I do love him. It’s not Fassbender-love/lust, but Gerry is definitely special to me.


Here are some recent photos of Gerard, out and about in London. I think this is the face he made when he read my love letter to Michael Fassbender:

  4. Soy says:

    He and Russell Crowe remind of an exboyfriend, same eyes, very sexy. Sigh.

  5. anemoneblue says:

    To me this man looks dirty (not in a good way). I’ll take Lolita

  6. Tazina says:

    I don’t find him attractive but his dog is adorable. Waking up and cuddling your pet is a good start to the day.

  7. atlantapug says:

    I totally understand that!

    Obviously, by my name, we are pug people!

  8. NYC_girl says:

    I like him in that last pic, walking amongst the garbage.

  9. ladybert62 says:

    I have said it before and I will say it again – Gerald, wash and cut that nasty greasy looking hair and get a shave: you look like a homeless bum.

  10. Mitzie Martin says:

    If I had the money my little dog would be fed on kobe beef every morning.

  11. RoadBlade says:

    Gerry my love *sigh*

    He goes to bed holding Lolita more often than people think. He is a lonely guy doesn’t get as much action as people imagine. He said so himself in Howard Stern interview couple weeks ago.

  12. Anonymei says:

    As a pug owner, I approve. Maybe I should become a fan.

  13. Jenn says:

    Awww! Look at the cute lil chunk butt pug girl. Butler wins a few sexy points from me.

  14. wtf? says:

    thank you kaiser,

    nice story about mr. bulter and lolita..hoorah finally!!!

    just when i think its over between us because of his manho ways………. he pulls me back in love/lust with him by feeding his doggie eggs in bed…

    love it and God help me.

  15. Camille says:

    I don’t care for Gerry all that much but his doggy is soooooooooooo cute! I like this story, its adorable.

  16. Karin (From BRAZIL) says:

    Cute story! A soft side of Gerard*sigh*Butler that media never shows: a kind hearted, polite, accessible and loving hunk of man. A sexy & single “Tractor Beam Of Yes” attitude man alright, but this planet sure needs more males of this kind, yeah pleaaaase!

  17. megan says:

    Please show us more pics of that puggy! As a former pug owner (my parents have the pugs, I now have a fRench bulldog) all I can say is this is totally normal for us. We love our dogs something awful. Not to say owners of other dog breeds don’t love their dogs just as much. But we are…obsessed.

  18. vicky says:

    Anonymei – as a pug owner, boy you have that wrong you are their slave.

    I have 2 pugs 10 and 13.

    This story makes me love him even more. What a good pug daddy!

  19. Paisley says:

    Great story kaiser. ;-D
    Well said Karin! Of course Gerry’s not perfect but he comes darned close and Lolita is one lucky little pug!

    RoadBlade that’s true. He’s said many time that a lot of his really wild past behavior was due to partying and that he’s much more cautious about things now that he’s a bit older and wiser.

    Peace everyone

  20. Lisa D. says:

    This story is such complete and utter BS. LOL

  21. pato says:

    sighs, HOT HOT. but..that cover..isn´t his head too big for the body????

  22. Queen Diane says:

    I love the part “horny buffoon, a sex-crazed dud.” Gerry is a real grounded, down to earth guy with values. He is very considerate of others. It shows in the way he treats his LoLita;)…. I love the way he treats him MUM, too. I do wish him all the BEST in his endeavors.

  23. allie says:

    Loved him with Jen Aniston!!!

  24. marianne says:

    Gotta love a man who loves his dog.
    He gets unconditional love from the dog. Most women just want to know him because he is an actor. He’s not stupid. When the right one comes along, he’ll know it.

    People condemn Gerard Butler for being a womanizer,so what.The man is single he can date as many women as he wants.,You call him a man whore.That is rediculous.He is a single guy.I suppose you would like it better if he was married and fooling around.Leave him alone he is single and not bothering anyone.Certainly not the women he dates.They love it,Wish it were me.
