Gerard Butler is such a mess, Jennifer Aniston & Charlize are trying to help him

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.

    Didn’t Charlize and Jennifer have dinner together not that long ago? Maybe they were disgussing an intervention for Gerry. jk

  4. Eleonor says:

    If he doesn’t stop now he is on the way to become the male Lohan.
    The drinking contest between Madmen and Games of Thrones LOL!! The guys at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce drnk A LOT.

    • MommaK18 says:

      Ahh yes he does! I was totally head over heels for him in Phantom of the Opera. Seriously he was so sexy and talented THEN! Now his pictures gross me out…

      So sad. He did it all to himself.

      My advice…
      Get some antibiotics for whatever diseases he can treat.
      Cut the hair.
      Work out…sweat out the booze and coke bloat.
      Find a hobby that doesn’t involve using your p*nis.
      Come back ina few years….
      And get a good publists.

      A good come back story is always liked.
      Roberty Downey Jr did it!
      We all have had our share of regrets…and until Gerry sees the damage he’s doing to himself I doubt he’ll try pulling himself off this slippery slope.

    Jerry having female friends who aren’t just F-buddies is the first shock.

  6. cupidityrox says:

    Where does he rank on the lohan crack o meter? The mere fact that he hooked up with Mother Cracken puts him in a 7 in my books

  7. TheOriginalKitten says:

    As has been stated a million time son this blog, addicts cannot be “saved” or “cured” by others. They need to want it for themselves. This man certainly shows no indication of wanting to give up his vices.

    • d says:

      Yeah, I was going to comment on that very thing and that by the look in his eyes, he’s nowhere near to being in a healthy place. It’s very sad to see and I feel very sorry for his family. I read somewhere else that he’s always been alcoholically inclined, but since moving to h-wood, he’s just full speed spiral downhill mode. It’s hugely awkward and uncomfortable to even look at pictures of him and I can’t imagine what it must be like for his friends and family being around him. Man…

  8. Nessa says:

    I cannot believe I ever thought this guy was attractive. Eww.

  9. Sillyone says:

    OMG his looks are gone. Did he catch something incurable from crackcrotch and he just gave up? I wouldn’t hit that if it were double bagged…YUCK

  10. ladybert62 says:

    I think Robert Downey Jr said it right in a previous article her – Butler is not going to change until he wants to change – intervention will not work unless he wants it to work.

    Obviously, he is not ready for change regardless of what his friends want.

  11. Sherri says:

    if there is ever any remote opportunity to take a jab @ JA – you take it . . .boring . . .

  12. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    I like Gerard’s smile, he looks really happy and must be having a lot of fun shaggin those random babes – I think he could start a company – Butler Condoms – before you get it on put on a butler.

  13. mia girl says:

    There may be many reason to snark on Aniston, but why crap on her, or anyone, for trying to help someone with substance problems?!

    And boy, it looks like Butler needs all the help he can get. He is in self- destruct mode. Sad.

  14. Stubbylove says:

    No one can make him get sober – he’s gotta hit a bottom – hope he does soon – if these reports are true he’s living in a nightmare right now and I hope he sees his way out soon. Going back to Scotland and hanging with good family and friends sounds like a good idea about now.

  15. Cathy says:

    His head seems to big for his body, or perhaps it’s just his neck. Look at that second picture, his head is outta whack to the rest of his body

  16. ellie66 says:

    Damn he looks rough….what a waste.

  17. original kate says:

    he always looks like he reeks of cigarettes, bologna and stale beer.

  18. Jaxx says:

    Cannot believe THIS is the sexy man from 300.

  19. Shy says:

    He is so gross and disgusting. And I gad a little crash on him after Phantom of the opera. How people can change. And I really don’t understand why he won’t cut that ridiculous hair. Someone should say it out loud to him: “He looks too old for that haircut”. It looks fine on 20-25 years old young guy. But it looks pathetic and embarrasing when 40 years old people like Gerard and Russel Crow wear it.

  20. samira677 says:

    Gerard is so disgusting. I don’t see why people think he’s hot.

  21. b anonymous says:

    Maybe I am crazy,but I still think Butler is still a good looking guy.He has lost to much weight lately and that is why his head looks bigger than his body.He just needs to put on a little weight and he would be fine.As for the hair I love it longer.

  22. truthposter says:

    This is why (please watch):


    He’s obviously going through hell right now, but I’m still in his corner. He’s always been sweet to people, polite, always smiling, never mean or violent.

    He is human everyone, with lots of issues. I pray he will be okay in the end. That is all.

    • Shy says:

      He was looking so good with short hair and shaved face just a few years back. I can’t believe that he changed so much. So sad. IMDB says that he is 42 years old. But he looks whole 50 now. In this times when Cloney, Hamm, Pitt, Cruise look so fantastic in their 40-50 years – it’s really unnatural when Gerard looks so old in 42 :)

      And those are very sad videos to watch. Because I remembered how well respected actor Gerard was after 300 came out. And look at him now. Walking with that stupid smile every day after some party. He turned to some male version of Lindsay Lohan. And that man was in rehab. But he basically just run off and returned to party. His publicist or agent probably put him in rehab. But he obviously doesn’t think he has problems since he run off.

  23. K says:

    Gosh! He is a very social guy. Let him live and get out of the house. What do you want him to do? If he was staying home he may be more tempted to drink or do drugs or whatever because it may be more depressing for him to do that. I saw some pics from yesterday and he looks like he is getting much better. The big-headed pic is a bit old. He lost too much weight at that time. He is putting his weight back on. I see a man trying to be okay.

  24. Camille (The original) says:

    He’s gross. And I don’t believe that tab story (the JA and Charlize thing).
