Are we supposed to believe that this guy is truly hetero? I think he is hiding in plain sight. The media (ie his publicist) tried to make him out to be a womanizer but at 42yrs old has never been married or linked to a woman other than dates. \
I''m going with gay.
If he''s not dating any women, that''s one thing, but WTF is with this "married" bullshit? What is with this antiquated notion that a guy (particularly one who is as gorgeous as he is and has many options) should be married? Why, so he can then fuck around behind the wife''s back so you can then bitch about how unfaithful he is?
He''s a big old queen.
Who is Gerard Butler?
the filmgoing public
God, I wish he was. He is my all time favorite hot actor. Loooooove him!
He isnt married so he just has to be gay. Sweet Jesus. Did it ever occur to you he might not want to be married? I think he is having himself a pretty sweet time w/o the bonds of matrimony to get in the way of his relentless pussyhounding.
R1 simmer down boy. Sorry, but 42 yrs old and not ever married does raise questions, regardless of if it upsets you or not.\
Clearly you are an old spinster yourself and this is a touchy subject.
Saw him once at a party in New York. Half the women in the room went up to him at some point and he was polite and friendly each time, but he remained surrounded by men the whole night.
R7 here again - same goes for you R6.
No, I''m actually married, R7, but how many times do we have to go through this nonsense where some guy is married (see: Tiger Woods), then fucks around and everyone is "shocked" and "disgusted," and wonders why he ever got married since he''s only as faithful as his options (c. Rock)?\
As I said, if he has no g/f, that''s one thing, but to actually go through marriage? Why? Hugh Grant isn''t married. Is he gay?
He''s gay. Just look at his apartment. That''s proof enough for me.
Forget marriage - has he ever dated a female?
What R12 said.
Dated? Why yes, look at he and Aniston!
r11, He lives in a loft full of out-of-place traditional furniture...screams *straight* to me.
[quote]He lives in a loft full of out-of-place traditional furniture...screams *straight* to me.\
Are you kidding me?! LMAO. No. Words.
Yikes! His apartment looks like an Arhaus showroom.
You know that nearly every celebrity hires *designers* don''t you? And who are these designers? GAY MEN...grip it hon.
I think OP meant to say that GB has never had a serious relationship with a woman and THAT''s a red flag, not the he''s never been married. %0D\
When a man reaches 40 and hasn''t had a single serious relationship of some duration with a woman, that spells GAY, GAY, GAY. Sorry, but it''s true.
R4/5/16/21 certainly is quite defensive about Gerry being straight. What''s up with that? Are you on his PR team? Sorry, but seems like your opinion is severely in the minority here. Why don''t you run along to the Leo DiCap thread and claim he''s straight.
Be gone Troll!
at this point coming out of the closet is probably the only thing that will give his career a (short-lived) revival.
r23, I''m not refuting Gerard''s gayness, if indeed it is true. I''m refuting the argument that his loft is a sure tell all.
He lives in frickin Chelsea. And uses the words "elegant" "gorgeous" and "retreat" to describe what he was going for. Case closed.
Sorry, girls, he''s straight...\
The Oscar After-Parties\
Dressed in a Gucci tuxedo, ladies man Gerard Butler focused all his attention on a new woman: Barbra Streisand when they crossed paths at the Governor''s Ball. The two talked for a long time while Streisand''s husband James Brolin entertained the gathered crowd waiting for a word with the singing legend.
R27 I heard he even got into a manly brawl with Richard Simmons over La Streisand access at the party.
The mere proximity of Babs will evaporate any lingering straightness. Hiya Jason!!
Wow, that''s a "bachelor pad"? Maybe a "confirmed bachelor pad."
I think he is even more gay than Keanu Reeves, if that''s possible.
Only second hand gossip but there are a few people out there I have come across on forums over the years that SWEAR up and down there was an old Butler interview where he basically said 'I am bisexual' or dropped heavy hints that he went both ways. The poster/s also claimed they tried to find this interview in recent years but it has since been pulled and is unobtainable despite exhaustive searching.%0D
They claim that back when Butler was just a UK actor of only minor repute he was pretty much free to say what he wanted and it went under the radar until he got to Hollywood and got CAA-ed up or whatever agency he signed with. %0D
Just passing along the story, dunno if it has actual substance. There was a rumour he was shacked up with some producer guy in Hollywood (a young jewsish guy I think, dark-haired, can't bring his name to mind, maybe Vincent?). They have been friends a long time. Some people claim it's more than that and that the female dates are standard bearding. %0D
Basically it's a big old who knows. %0D
His apartment as well...he definitely has a refined eye.
At one point, there was some sort of statement released - that claimed the interviewed mentioned by r33 was a fake. The statement appeared for a time on one or both of those god-awful fan sites of his (the ones where fraus plan conventions to meet and talk about how he helped them rediscover and unleash their sexuality). The statement, like the original interview, seems to have vanished.
I love his apartment. I would gladly give up some head and ass Mr. Butler to spend a weekend in that joint.
That apartment looks like it was imported from a Paradise Valley AZ home.%0D\
I don''t get it. As far as the gay from the apartment, I don''t get that either. More of a overly guy thing, way too....oh, I get it.
I first became obsessed with Gerard when I saw Dracula 2000. Damn he was sexy in that role.\
Then I went out and saw everything he had ever been in up to that point. \
The Atila The Hun movie was pretty good too.\
Lost interest when he became to Hollywood-y and started dating all those "stars".
Oh really, that''s interesting r35. Good update, I hadn''t heard that as am not a fan in general. I like the actor (he was great in Rock n Rolla with Tom Hardy) but it''s good to know I hadn''t dreamt that piece of info up because it was some time ago now.%0D\
My take on that would it is typical Hollywood agency panic, dredging up something from the past and refuting it so it doesn''t cause ripples down the line, but in doing so bringing it to everyone''s attention again. That''s really sadly typical of an agency at work. I bet some gay flack even typed up the denial. %0D\
It''s a good job some of us have long memories.
I loved him til that horrible movie with Hilary Swank.
Alan Siegel is the assistant turned producer guy r33 talked about. He is openly gay and married to a male fashion designer. He and Butler are friends not lovers. \
There was an old TMZ video where he and some women were walking on the streets in New York and the guy asked him the type of women he liked and he replied with something like how could you assume i liked women. He seemed cool.
When he was on Leno or one of those shows he talked about being a young man visiting his father in Toronto (I think). He talked about how much fun he had when his father was out of town. %0D\
Imagine...before the herps (alleged), the bloat...
That bisexual interview was a fake.\
Not saying he isn''t gay though.
Brit here who''s followed his career since ''Young Person''s Guide to Being a Rockstar''. I''m not saying he isn''t gay or bi but the interview you''re talking about didn''t exist and he never had a reputation in the UK of being anything other than straight. It wasn''t as if he was out here and in there or anything.
I thought i saw an interview on one of our late night shows and it seemed like he was sawing he liked boys and girls. Maybe i''m getting him confused with Bardeem?
The article in question was in USA Today,circa 1999-2000 r33. No open declaration of bisexuality but it stated something along the lines of not being interested in dating anyone and prefered to remain a bachelor...%0D\
Obviously he was very ''green'' then-a newcomer to playing the Hollywood game.%0D\
It''s out there somewhere...
This thread is hilarious! I think the "fraus" would be amused to know that you all discuss G in the very same way and about the very same topics as they do!\
Turn on your gaydar: does he really set it off just because he hasn''t been married? Mine is finely honed and he doesn''t set mine off. I think he''s a free-thinking, free-speaking Scot whom the Hollywood types STILL have trouble corraling. Whoever said ''you''re only as faithful as your options'' was right. If I looked at that face in the mirror every day, I''d be doing just as he does. And frankly I don''t care who or what he''s sticking it to, I only know it isn''t me. LOL
R47, if Gerard Butler was fucking women we, the public, would get some info about them, it''s not like Gerard is shy or hides from paparazzi.
I had a recurrent phone sex thing a couple of years back w/ a guy who sounded awfully like him (Scottish accent and all)... same age and was supposedly located where Butler was filming a movie... or so he said. \
There was NEVER a suggestion by me or him that it was Butler, but man o man the details fit... and I''m good at pegging accents.
Maybe wishful thinking, but....
haha.. everyone (guys and girls) who''s ever spent this much time debating this guy''s sexual orientation, has most definitely got the hots for him. P.s. he''s bloody cute and all of you dissing him here anonymously would probably melt into mush if he ever spoke to you.. and not because he''s a celeb, but because he''s a damn charming guy who knows what effect he has on folks..
Not at all - it just an interesting topic to chew over.%0D\
I am surprised people can be so dismissive of an interview (however it was couched) that apparently now doesn''t exist that had to have an official PR declaration it didn''t exist THEN some time ago. %0D\
I''m not actually bothered what he is, he''s a good actor and I think a good guy but the Hollywood wheels just intrigue me.
A year or two ago, he was shooting a movie in Belgrade. A friend of mine who was part of the local crew told me that a local escort agency kept a number of high-end call girls on call for him, at any time of the day, in case he needed to be serviced .
Well that''s me persuaded of his hettie credentials r52 err... PR shill who uses words like "serviced".%0D\
Shoved back into the closet after one "revealing" interview.
gerry doesn''t like men or women, he prefers the hoffed animal, and i hear he had a fling with this chap at one time....
I remember watching the gag reel on that shitty movie he did with Katherine Heigl. Every time he tried to say a line and cracked up, the giggles that came out of his mouth were SO queeny!
Just out of curiosity...how is a straight guy allowed to decorate his appartment?%0D\
A single plasma screen TV, in front of an ugly recliner chair, a poster of a sports team logo and/or picture of tits on the wall, fast food packaging strewn about, an air mattress on the floor in the bedroom, and a fridge with beer and ketchup in it?
I don't think the fact that he's never been married is proof that he's gay (or anybody else) but, the fact that he's never been in a long term relationship (and for argument's sake I consider 1 year+ "long term") is proof to me that he must be gay. Hell, I don't think he's had a relationship that lasted 4-5 months or longer than a few dates. He's either gay or has some very serious issues.
Plus, his "relationships" all seem fake. Some people here have said in other threads and I couldn't agree more that when a relationship is REAL and not for PR (whether the people are really gay or just media whores) the paps catch them doing daily, normal things like all couples and also when a relationship is real, couples don't like the attention that much.
I think that's the best test if someone is gay - better than gossip, relationships past, gay face, gay voice, interpreting couples pictures and "chemistry" and so on.
I vote for GAY GB.
P.S A lesser possibility is that he's asexual (yeah, such people exist) or his junk doesn't work (either a physical problem or psychological).
So, OP, ten years from now are you going to say that anyone in NY who isn''t in a gay marriage must be straight?\
Or, put differently:\
Does anybody think about the bullshit coming out of their mouths anymore?
You folks who think only gay people live in Chelsea are dead wrong.\
He picked up my hot (female) secretary in a bar and she said the sex was pretty incredible. Never heard from him again.
Where is the proof that he is gay? he looks like a womaniser to me.
[quote]He picked up my hot (female) secretary in a bar and she said the sex was pretty incredible. Never heard from him again.\
Where did this supposed meeting happen? LA? NYC?
"When a man reaches 40 and hasn't had a single serious relationship of some duration with a woman, that spells GAY, GAY, GAY. Sorry, but it's true."%0D
And how the hell would YOU know, with 100% certainty, that he "hasn't had a single serious relationship of some duration with a woman?" Have you known him since his birth? Do you spend hours each day and night with him? Are you are a very warm, close, personal friend of his? If the answer to all of these questions is no (and I'm pretty sure it is) then you need to shut your big fat flapping ignorant mouth. %0D
I don't know anything about Gerard Butler's personal life. And neither do the queens on thread who are screaming that he simply must be "GAY, GAY, GAY!" because he's not married, because he's never had a high profile relationship with a female, because he doesn't surround himself with sluts, etc.%0D
Not that it matters anyway. Why care if a celebrity is gay or not? Whatever he does in his personal life, it's HIS business. What does it have to do with you queens?%0D
[quote]Why care if a celebrity is gay or not? Whatever he does in his personal life, it''s HIS business. What does it have to do with you queens? \
This a gay gossip board, in case you haven''t noticed. And what does it have to do with you if we speculate on his sexual preference?
R65 - are you one very stupid troll.
I haven''t had a relationship longer than a year either. Should I be questioning my homosexuality? Personally, I know a lot of straight guys that just have sex with women and never ever have girlfriends. Without evidence of relationships with men, it isn''t a solid sign of being gay. Not saying he isn''t though.
R67 - YOU ARE one very stupid twat.
He's made some awful films, horrid! I think he is gay and when he was making Gamer with Michael C. Hall, did they have an affair?
I also think he's gay.
I don't find him attractive in any way, except in interviews, he seems like a nice guy. Anyway, does anyone really think he dated Aniston? That's just stupid.
A year or more ago there was a blind item about a hearthrob guy that had a reputation as a womanizer. This man had such bad herpes his doctor advised that he should not have sex with anyone. Ever. For some reason at the time I was convinced this was him.
I think it was bullshit. You could always wear a condom.
I doubt he is gay... he seems comfortable with this gay paparazzi and even jokingly asked him out on a date.
I couldn't give two shits about Butler. I'm interested in Hall.
He was shooting a movie in Belgrade a year or two ago. What I heard from the people who were there is that a local escort service kept a few girls on call for him, "should Mr. Butler require any special services at any time of the day or night."
Yeah, its always "what I heard" about Butler and women but never anything substantiated.
The guy is gay. Deal.
If he has got to his 40s without marrying why should he now - then the marriage would probably fail in a few years and he has to hand over a hefty part of his income - lots of rich men just do not marry now. Same with Clooney, Keanu, Hugh Grant and others ..... they get what they want from dates or escorts and their male coteries.
I'm thinking the only straight in that sentence was, Hugh Grant.
I'm the one at r12 (I think) that talked about his apartment and that was the huge clue he was gay. It's not the furniture but Arch Digest has pix of his place and he has a big ol' NAKED Michaelangelo mural scene on his ceiling - it's the HUGE NAKED GUY WITH THE PENIS touching the guy who's supposed to be G-d.
Then the other CLUE is the pic of what's her name (ex lover of Kennedy father) from Sunset Blvd from that movie on his wall.
Was thinking very straight, then saw the loft photos.
where are the loft pictures?
R17 His loft apartment looks like he had his mother decorate it. The straights do that sometimes. So, he might actually be straight.
What do I know, really?
It is somewhat far out that he has never been linked to any lady on the long term at all. Hell, a month! A year! Nothing. He is just known as the fellow who dates a lot and nothing more. At his age that is just a wee bit more interesting that his not having married yet.
"He is just known as the fellow who dates a lot and nothing more."
What are you talking about?
He doesn't date at all.
Gerard Butler has been hiding in plain sight since he the moment he landed Attila!
What r85 said. He only "dates" on the red carpet or when it's obvious it's a photoop.
Dates alot? Yeah...the invisable girlfriends. Alot of gay actors have them. You never see a picture of them. No one ever knows their name. Invisable girlfriends.
I know a woman who had a one night stand with him.
He sounds more like a commitment-phobe than anything.
I realize he's an actor, but some of them are straight, aren't they?
For what it's worth, I say he pings.
Watch him describe his catered prison meal in Law Abiding Citizen and get back to me.
Oh and I'm forty-four, never married, haven't had an LTR in over twenty years, and I'm straight as an arrow. Just into sex with women, and want nothing else to do with them.
[I realize he's an actor, but some of them are straight, aren't they?]
he wrecked the phantom of the opera movie.
Tell me how you're gonna have a Phantom who can't sing.
R97 What does it say? I don't like clicking on links because some end up having viruses.
Marriage is not a goal for everyone in life, gay or not.
I dont get the fascination with this guy. Horrible actor and ugly as fucking sin.
R98 Here is what it says
[quote]Sensitive soul that he obviously is, Gerry was put out when a well-known director implied recently that he was gay: "My sexuality is my own personal business, but as for the rumours about my alleged affairs with certain actors - not true," he said.
Gerard Butler...he is maybe gay and i don't say
''maybe'' if i'm not 80% convinced about it. He is in the closet probably. C'est la vie...
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
