Gerard Butler would rather make out with Jennifer Aniston than Angelina Jolie

Premiere of STX Films' 'Den Of Thieves' - Arrivals

God, remember when I had a crush on Gerard Butler? It was a good seven or eight years ago. I was really into him. My crush died over time, but I still held some general affection for him, from afar. Gerard Butler could have been a huge deal but he made too many bad movies and he said yes to every script that came his way. He’s currently promoting Den of Thieves, which I’m not going to watch. I’m including some photos from last night’s premiere in this post – he walked the carpet with his on-again girlfriend, Morgan Brown. They’ve been doing the on-and-off thing for years now.

To promote this latest film, Butler (G-But) appeared on What What Happens Live. Suffice to say, Ol’ G-But was reminded of the fact that he’s one of the few actors to act against both Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, and he got to kiss them both on-screen (Jolie in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Aniston in Bounty Hunter). During the Plead the Fifth game, Butler was asked which woman was the better kisser. From The Daily Mail:

The 48-year-old Scottish actor participated in a Plead The Fifth game where he was asked by the 49-year-old host which between the star actresses is better to smooch.

As he had already plead the fifth once, he looked pained to have to answer as he finally said: ‘Jennifer Aniston. I’m just going, you know, I’m just taking you by surprise.’

[From The Daily Mail]

There you go: Ol G-But thought Jennifer Aniston was the better kisser. Boom. The Team Jolie/Team Aniston War shall never die. Here’s the video:

In this clip, Butler talks about weird places he’s had sex. Um, the porta-potty never comes up!

    Rumor had it he and Jen A were FWB while making that terrible film they did together, so this was the politic answer.

    • SilverUnicorn says:

      Rumours were also that Gerard and Angelina could not stand each other during the filming of Lara Croft, so not surprising he gave that answer.

    • LetItGo says:

      Yea it’s true. There’s a well known pic of them posing for a pic, someone snapped them from behind and he’s pretending to finger Aniston up the butt or v. Pretty disgusting overall. I recall when that horrible. Movie came out they were trying to tease a relationship, or her PR was, which he kept messing up by being seen with other women. Lmao

      I agree that was politically correct since they (Jen and he) absolutely had something going on, while AJ wanted nothing to do with him.

      • Felicia says:

        That’s called “goosing” someone. The definition is here and has nothing to do with sex:

        Granted, it’s pretty childish though.

      • SJhere says:

        I remember seeing that photo and thinking if I was JA I would have stepped back and slapped him in the face for that crude move.

        The porta-potty sex story has put me off this Dude for the remainder of time.
        Ugh! Also, he is a smoker and his looks are fading very, very quickly.

        He and Matt Damon have both lost any charm they ever had. Not one penny to see anything they are in, from me ever again.

    • V4Real says:

      Oh please he briefly dated Jen so of course he’s going to say that.

  2. Clare says:

    Sure, but would either of them want to kiss HIM?

    It’s gross that men are goaded into making these ridiculous comments, firstly pitting women agaisnt one another and secondly implying that this random man gets to pick who he’s going to be intimate with, as if the women are inanimate objects.

    Andy Cohen – do better. But what can we expect from a man who had made a career out of portraying women as shrews and pitting them against one another.

    • JaneDoesWork says:


    • Ytbtet says:

      Yeah it really does not matter who he picks

    • minx says:

      He always looks unwashed to me.

      • Clare says:

        @minx – yer, he’s gross. But even if he was the hottest man on earth, this line of questioning is the kind of thing that perpetuates shitty behavior.

      • H says:

        He was HOT during his Dracula 2000 days. Now? No.

    • KatieBo says:

      Eh- I’ve heard several interviews when women were asked about kissing male co-stars. I remember one in particular when they asked Jamie Lee Curtis who was the best kisser and she answered Dan Aykroyd. And here’s an entire article compiling interviews with women about kissing male co-stars.

      • Clare says:

        @KatieBo that is also gross, but given the ratio of male sexual aggressors v female sexual aggressors, and then general social narrative of males pursuing women with/without their consent – ‘the chase’- etc, I would argue that it is less urgently troubling.
        Not cool, not ok, but just less urgent.

    • Nikki says:

      You nailed this, thanks.

    • robyn says:

      “It’s gross that men are goaded into making these ridiculous comments.”

      I couldn’t agree more, Clare. And it’s kind of gross that we’re still pretending there’s some kind of conflict going on between these two women regarding ANY man. Just who do men think they are?

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Do you really expect anything more from Andy Cohen? I don’t . I think the selection of unstable housewives he goads each season for ratings is reprehensible. The alcohol fueled embarrassing behavior, those driven to rehab, the shredding of reputations on camera, the backstabbing and cattiness that is encouraged through (presumably) producer manipulations, the outing of family secrets… I could go on. He destroys mentally fragile people for money.

      Andy sucks.

    • Kitten says:

      Absolutely this.

    • isabelle says:

      This! About 10 years ago maybe, now? Like kissing that drunk sloppy guy at the bar when you are tipsy yourself, so…nope.

    • Littlestar says:

      Cosign what Clare said

    • starkiller says:

      I came to say just this. I’m sure either of these women would love to kiss a bloated also-ran who smells of Porta Potty. Ten years ago, maybe, but those days are long gone.

    • Jeannie says:

      THANK YOU CLARE. This needs to become a larger discussion. Also, why is his hand on Angelina’s neck?

    • SJF says:

      Best reply of the week, Clare. Thank you.

  3. Prairiegirl says:

    Ew. Stupid interviewer.

    • Savasana Lotus says:

      It was a ridiculous question, but not surprising from a host who hangs his rep on sophomoric schtick and dick jokes. I imagine it must be exhausting for these two women to be continually lumped together even after they neither are involved with Pitt. It’s stupid. One thing I don’t care for is when aging men are dissed for getting older. The reason why I don’t like it is cuz I hate that it’s done to women. I don’t follow Butler, but have seen his rep from browsing headlines. Apparently he’s gotten around…but why are men or women compared to how they looked 10 or 20 years before. Some people work hard or regress the age spots and sagging and wrinkles at the doctor and some don’t. Aging can be unkind. It happens whether or not people sleep around or drink or misbehave. It’s presumptuous to assume ones looks are attributed to any specific factors when you don’t know them AT ALL. If you don’t like them say so, but leave their looks out of it…it’s very sophomoric like Andy Cohen

  4. SilverUnicorn says:

    At the time of the Lara Croft movie, there was actually a sort of ‘on-set’ cold feud between him and Angelina. So not surprised he decided to go for a kiss with Aniston as they went on several dates during and after the Bounty Hunter (has anyone forgot his famous finger into Aniston’s crack in Paris?!?!?)

  5. Mia4s says:

    Sigh…I remember for 10 minutes years ago it looked like he might turn out to be an interesting actor. Oh well, get paid I guess. Fair enough.

  6. Jana says:

    Team Jen

  7. OriginalLala says:

    oh I remember Gerard Butler in 300, I thought he was the bees knees then….but then he got all gross John Mayer-style 🙁

  8. Mina says:

    I hate these type of questions. But Butler and Jennifer Aniston became good friends while filming their crappy movie, so I’m not surprised he would pick her, kissing talent aside.

    • LetItGo says:

      That was pure PR. I remember she was inviting Butler to Mexico for her birthday which doubled as promo for that trash movie they did. The idea was to generate all kinds of are they or aren’t they headlines in anticipation of the release. I’m pretty certain had he been serious Aniston would have been Jennifer Butler in a NY minute, she’s that girl and she was always still competing with Brangelina, it fueled her fame and gave her
      coattails long past Friends, she was trying to grab headlines that she was desirable enough that another leading man ‘type’ wanted her. But Butler wouldn’t play the game like she wanted, and kept hitting the rags and mags as a lothario which made her look like she was going to be a woman scorned again. She seemed po’d at him at the end.

      That said. Post Weinstein, everyone now knows how these PR agencies are fos and comply it in all kinds of fakery– their number one goal is to increase their clients profile and bank account and thusly, theirs. So their clients know what to do to scratch each others backs. Nothing’s genuine.

      Andy Cohen, Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston are all loyal longtime CAA. Andy knew what Butler’s answer had to be before he asked the question.

      Angelina is notorious for not having a PR agency for publicity.

      • Mina says:

        Wow, you seem to know so much about the ins and outs of the industry! I don’t know what I said that required such an attack on Jennifer Aniston and a glorious defense of Angelina (who might not have a personal PR occasionally but plays the Hollywood game as much as anyone). My point was simply that his opinion might have been influenced by his personal relationship to the actress and not how good a kisser they are.

  9. jess1632 says:

    Stupid. People (cough cough men) gotta stop pitting women against each other. It’s ridiculous.

  10. SM says:

    I am sorry but I have a bad taste in my mouth. Not because of Gerry or his answer but because Andy Cohen or whoever is responsible for that program’s content had the audacity to ask that question. Was that necessary to reduce the question to sexual content and fuel further the perception of women always compeating against each other.

  11. Mar says:

    Didn’t these 2 date for 5 minutes? Or try to convince us they were?

  12. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I used to love GB, but he had to open his mouth. I don’t think it was necessarily bad movies that sunk him. I always go to Samuel Jackson for proof that simply working is good for good’s sake (+125 movies). He says that he would never turn down a script and was thankful for getting them (although now he goes cerebral… his words lmao). I think Butler is Butler’s demise.

  13. happyoften says:

    Both Angie and Jen are currently rinsing with germex at the memory.

  14. Seraphina says:

    Can’t he just be answering honestly? Maybe she is the better kisser. Who cares. Doesn’t mean squat. One man’s pleasure is another man’s displeasure.

  15. hellokitty says:

    Randomly enough, I met Gerry (and Morgan) once briefly after a spin class in London, where I live. In person he is very gregarious but a) not that attractive (lots of Hollywood magic going on there) and b) not very tall (5′ 8/9″ maybe).

    • minx says:

      I can believe that he looks better onscreen.

    • Lola says:

      You didn’t meet Gerard in London if you saw a guy that’s 5’8. He is almost 6’2. Maybe you’re super tall?

      • hellokitty says:

        I’m 5′ 8-9″ and he was my height. He’s definitely not over 6′. He was in sneakers. Perhaps he wears lifts?

    • magnoliarose says:

      He is photogenic but ordinary in person but it could be seeing him in the last few years instead of when he was on the rise. He ruined his career with his sleazy behavior and stupidity.

      He coulda been uh contenda.

  16. Ex-Mel says:

    It’s bad enough that he would even consider replying to such a question, but then he says: ” I’m just taking you by surprise.’ ”
    Some compliment.

  17. bonobochick says:

    Ugh that he was asked that question.

    Also, I am so over folks who put these two woman against each other. Both have moved on with their lives and it remains gross that anyone gets a kick out of making them seem like rivals.

  18. marianne says:

    I still remember a Mean Tweets video he did, where it was implied he does all these crappy movies because he has student loans to pay off and it still makes me laugh.

  19. Harryg says:

    Why even answer that stupid question! Can’t stand him.

  20. Laysa says:

    Jen is better

  21. queenE says:

    I adore him

  22. Valiantly Varnished says:

    He and Angelina hated each other on the set of Tomb Raider and he and Aniston are friends. This isnt that surprising. On another note: he is GROSS. I remember when he first became big and everyone thought he was so hot – including me. Wth were we thinking?

    • Mari says:

      Every time I see a movie he’s promoting I ask myself the same thing! I really think the whole port-a-potty thing did it in for me. The crush-o-meter was already falling and this just sent it into the negative. Now, I just feel like he’s a sad man going through the motions.

  23. Truth hurts says:

    People still propping Aniston up. Jolie still doing her thing. Can we really move on😞

  24. Upstatediva says:

    You know who is the happiest about this analysis? Angie. She is not looking for the Butler rec. (not that I think Aniston is either. . . . )

  25. Pita says:

    Tbh I think Angelina would rather kiss Jennifer instead of Gerard lol

  26. Samantha says:

    Lol I didn’t know Butler preferred homely (how right was Kimberly Stewart) leathery masculine-looking women. Perhaps Butler has latent homosexual tendencies.

  27. Alexis says:

    Ah I like Gerard Butler. We have a new Scottish member in the fam, so I love him even more now. Ok well the question could have been PR of course, it’s Andy Cohen…come on. But what could Gerard Butler say that would have been acceptable?

  28. No notone says:

    Jennifer g to coddled more than a new born baby. People act as if she is the only woman that has been left by her husband. The bad part is people blame Angelina for everything that goes on in her and Brads life well anything wrong.
    Do people realize that if I were Jen I would feel even worse thinking everyone has to hold my hand cause I’m that weak and feel that inferior to a woman.
    Anyways the look on 50’s face is gold. He is like you lying and Andy acts as if he set the whole thing up.
    Team Angie cause she is the real winner of he feel sJen is the better kisser with those barely there lips and sloppy mouth.

  29. Mona says:

    I love it

  30. Betty says:

    Since Jolie and Aniston are both exes of Brad Pitt being with Butler would be a let down and a comedown
