Oh my God, could Gerard Butler get any cuter? Here he is with some random British fan, as he promotes The Ugly Truth in England. It looks like this woman is some kind of Gerard-loonie (join the International Butlerholic Club, lady) and has accosted him with a large photo of himself that she wants him to sign. So what does my lover do? He makes a cute face, gives the woman a big hug, and uses her back to sign the picture. Sigh. I lurve him. Does he give hugs to all of his stalkers? Must. Find. Out.
As Gerard has been out and about promoting The Ugly Truth, he made another bold statement about how he, and all men, are pigs. Not really, he just said that he’d like to be able to tell a woman she’s got nice t-ts without anyone calling the cops. I kind of think he’s talking directly to me:
“The Ugly Truth’s” Gerard Butler is sure he’d be an even bigger hit with the opposite sex, if only he were allowed to act on his impulses.
“We’ve taken something as simple as sexual attraction, something that’s in our DNA, that’s basic to society, and turned it into something complicated,” Butler said in a quote posted to Contact Music.
“We’ve made the rules we must abide by that make it difficult to connect with each other. If a woman has great breasts, I’d love to tell her so. But in polite society, you can’t do that. Which is a shame.”
When Gerry appeared on Britain’s GMTV yesterday, he decided to play “weather girl”. He stood in front of green screen and made jokes about how it’s always raining in Scotland. It’s a really cute video, and the International Butlerholic Club should check it out. During the real GMTV interview, Gerard was still trying to answer some of those questions about Jennifer Aniston, too. Are they hooking up? Are they just friends? Is she nailing that ass to the wall every night? I don’t know the answers to any of those questions, but Gerard is still claiming that they’re not “dating”. He does say that he’s looking forward to their on-screen kiss though:
If Gerard Butler was dating Jennifer Aniston, he’d be the first to admit it, he says.
“If I was, I would say I was,” the actor told British TV show GMTV on Monday.
Butler, 39, has been recently and repeatedly linked to Aniston, with whom he’s currently filming The Bounty in Manhattan.
But even though the two look cozy in photos, he says there is nothing to it. “It’s just that if you’re not married in Hollywood and you’re working with somebody else who’s single, you’re having a thing with her.”
Not that there’s anything wrong with Aniston, 40. Butler described her to PEOPLE last month as “classy.” He added to GMTV, “I’m not embarrassed by her … Maybe she’s embarrassed by me though!”
And just to add more fire to the speculation, Butler says he’s looking forward to the day on The Bounty set when they get to share some kisses. “I haven’t done it yet,” said, “but I’m excited … I’m lucky – yeah, I know.”
Next week, the National Enquirer will probably report how Jennifer is “thrilled” that Gerard keeps denying they’re dating because she wants her privacy while she quietly nails him. Which is probably a lot more likely than those Bradley Cooper stories. Of course, this is all in between Gerard’s rigorous schedule of nailing gorgeous 20-something models. Sigh. Even though I love him, he can be a little douchey at times.
