Some women celebrating Maja Nogic’s impending nuptials around the Sydney Harbour in Australia last weekend when they got a very interesting surprise: Gerard Butler.
Maja’s friends had hired a boat for the bachelorette party (known internationally as a “hen do”, just FYI) and who should be on board but Gerard himself, who had also hired it to look at some property around Rushcutter’s Bay.
He took some pics with the ladies before realising what he’d stumbled into, when he immediately turned on the charm, apparently saying: “Is this a hen party? Can I join? We’re going to dance a little bit, drink a little bit.” Smooth, man. Real smooth.
Who knows what happened after that, but I’m sure Maja’s soon-to-be husband was none too pleased about the encounter. Maja, however, looks thrilled.

Watching Andy Murray at Wimbledon was great for so many reasons – mostly because he won, but also because Bradley Cooper and Gerard Butler were the couple to watch. I mean, look at these two! They’re wearing matching powder blue suits! They’re taking a selfie! What’s not to love here?
The photo went viral, of course, but apparently Gerard Butler has no idea and in fact… doesn’t use the internet and had no idea?
From Digital Spy:
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t go on the internet, so I don’t know what [a 'selfie'] is.”
The 300 star also joked about the duo’s matching suits, saying: “Bradley and I are friends. [The matching outfits] was coincidence. It was a little embarrassing. We didn’t mention it at the time.
“We gave each other a hug, then looked down and went, ‘Oh, s**t’.”
I kinda don’t believe anyone that’s not a newborn or over the age of 80 doesn’t go on the internet, so I call bullshit on that one and kinda don’t understand the pont of that lie, but whatever. Also, Jeremy Piven was there and was looking on at this lovely spectacle and had something to say about it:
“I love both of them, they’re both great guys and they appreciate the attention.
“They were wearing powder blue outfits, they looked like they were groomsmen – they are the dream.”
They ARE the dream, you’re totally right, Jeremy Piven. I think that’s the only thing you’ve ever said that hasn’t made me want to punch you in the face.

Brandi Glanville was shouting her hook-up with Gerard Butler from the rooftops last year, but no one really believed it happened. That is, until now! Gerard has admitted that he did indeed do the dirty with Eddie Cibrian’s ex, and he would have spoken up sooner but he didn’t realise it was her since he didn’t catch her last name when he sneaked out of her condo after their “one afternooner” was done. Ouch. However, Brandi’s not put off by that – instead, she feels “vindicated”!
From US Weekly:
“We had a little texting today, and I think he’s a doll and I feel bad for what I said,” Glanville told Cohen – who previously over shared with the Bravo emcee about her fling with Butler, praising his talents as a lover.
“He is lovely and I appreciate him making it right,” the Drinking and Tweeting author continued.
I don’t even know what to say about this. Gerard Butler has zero standards when it comes to who he sleeps with (then again, the same could probably be said for any woman who sleeps with him) and the fact that this had to be discussed publicly by either of them is just bizarre. Is there anything people won’t share? Oh wait, I forgot who I was talking about.

Not that he’s ever really been “alive” to me, or more than a blip on my radar because of 300 and being pursued by the ever-persistent Jessica Biel, but I’ve always wanted to say that – “dead to me.” It sounds just so dramatic and final. “You’re dead to me.” I wish I could have tons and tons of money and draw up a huge will and write someone random into it, only to pull the rug out from underneath them later in life, cutting them out of the will while screaming, “You’re dead to me!” as spittle flies from the corners of my mouth. Great, right?
It was a (typically) star-studded night at West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont.
Lindsay Lohan may have (mostly) been preoccupied with her cell phone during her evening out with friends – she was glued to it, constantly texting, as were her pals – but that didn’t stop her entirely from taking notice of fellow celebs. The starlet jumped out of her chair and ran to give Emily Blunt a hug when she saw the British actress approaching. They shared some pleasant small talk – and smiles – before Blunt headed away with her friend [Ed. Note: Ran away to find some sanitizer is probably more like it.]
Soon, though, Lohan had another visitor: Gerard Butler, who arrived on the patio after midnight and sauntered over to the garden bar near where Lindsay and her friends were seated. The two were laughing and telling jokes, and Butler kept his hands on both sides of her chair as he leaned in close to talk. She was soaking up the attention and even asked him to come closer so she could whisper in his ear.
Oh my God. It’s finally happening. Lindsay Lohan “is coming back.” She’s getting all sorts of “attention from ‘A-listers’.” She’s frequenting the Chateau Marmont again. This is business, guys. Serious business.
As for Butler? Stick a fork in ‘im, he’s done. Looks like he should have latched back onto Jessica Biel when he had the chance. Back when he was still maybe bankable. And semi-bangable.

Is that surprising to anyone else, the fact that Gerard Butler is currently in rehab? I can’t tell really tell if I’m a little shocked because this really came out of nowhere, or if I’m a little shocked because every time I see any news about Gerard Butler, I immediately start wondering why everyone thinks he’s so attractive, and I never end up actually reading the story. Unless, you know the headline is something real simple like “Gerard Butler In Rehab.” Then I’ll take a gander, obviously.
Gerard Butler is being treated for substance abuse at the Betty Ford Center … TMZ has learned.
Butler’s problems were triggered by the physical demands of shooting “300″ in 2006. We’re told the actor began struggling with pain management, and the problem became exacerbated while filming “Of Men and Mavericks,” when Butler was badly hurt on December 18 during a surfing accident.
We’re told Butler realized he was relying too much on prescription drugs and decided to head off a full-blown addiction by entering Betty Ford three weeks ago.
Sources tell TMZ … Butler also developed issues with cocaine, but the root problem appears to be the injuries and pain management.
We’re told Butler will be leaving Betty Ford later today.
I knew he was probably addicted to vagina, but painkillers and cocaine? Man.
However surprising this is, can we please take a moment to talk about how admirable this is? Too often we see celebrities with these kinds of issues put off rehab until the last possible minute, or maybe they don’t even go to rehab at all. I think we need to congratulate Gerard and the people around him for trying to nip this one in the bud before things got seriously out of control.
Or, you know, maybe I’m way off base. Maybe Gerard has been an obvious train wreck for six years and I never noticed because every time I saw his name or his picture, I had to stop and say “Gerard Butler, really?” Honestly, that’s a possibility too.

From OK! Magazine:
“I have three questions,” host Andy Cohen explained on his show,” Watch What Happens Live. “You may ‘Plead the Fifth’ on just one question.”
1.) “If you could have ten minutes alone in a room with LeAnn Rimes and suffer no repercussions, what would you do or say to her?”
“Plead the Fifth,” Brandi said.
2.) “When was the last time you watched porn?”
“I don’t watch porn,” she said. “A year ago. Maybe. Randomly.”
3.) “Who is the most famous person, besides Eddie Cibrian, that you have hooked up with?”
“I can’t Plead the Fifth,” Brandi said with a laugh. “Uh, Gerard Butler.”
Andy couldn’t control his excitment and had to keep asking Brandi more questions about her Hollywood hook up.
“Was that more than once? Was it a relationship?”
“No, no, no. It wasn’t a one nighter, it was like a little week of fun.”
Brandi explained the hook-up happened in the last year over the summer. So, on a scale from 1 to 10 how fun was it?
“Eleven,” Brandi said with a big smile.
Oh dear God. I kind of figured Gerard Butler would hit it with practically anyone, but I didn’t think he’d stoop as low as to hook up with one of the Real Housewives, especially the one that got dumped for LeAnn Rimes.
Sorry to say, even compared to LeAnn Rimes, Brandi Glanville is way budget. Way, way budget. I’d give Butler a lot more credit for pulling an Ashton Kutcher, hooking up with total randoms off the street that they probably met during a drunken Mardi Gras one year. I’ve been there, it totally happens. So go for it, Gerard. Mardi Gras starts in a couple of weeks. Go find yourself a nice little co-ed to slam, because for the love of God. If you sleep with Brandi Glanville again, no one in Hollywood is going to want your wang. OK, boy? Are we clear on this one?
