And Why Guys Hate Him

Okay, so maybe "hate" is too strong a word, but the point is, women love this dude no matter what he's up to, and all us guys, myself included, wish we could compete.

Butler's played a plethora of roles, from soccer dad to sworded slayer, Scottish smooth-talker to shaggy surfer.

The common denominator — this fool always pulls it off, always.

Granted, not all of us have the time or justification to spend as much time in the gym as Leonidas, but that doesn't change the fact that ladies love their Gerard Butler.

So let's take a walk down memory lane.

I'll show you why I'm jealous, and you... well, you can just bask in the pictures.

Don't say I never did nothin' for ya.

Gerard kills it

Not only does Gerard get to wield all the incredible weaponry like this here spear, but he leads a heroic brigade of soldiers to imminent death only to slay the majority of the opposition and look that chiseled all the while. It's one perk to get cast in the epic role, but it's another thing to look that stoic in real life. And yes, Gerard managed both. Oh, and he gets to hook up with babes like Ms. Leonidas, actress Lena Headey.

I bet you give me a half hour, and I'll come up with 300 reasons why I envy Mr. Butler.

Shaka brah

As if being the international man-wonder isn't good enough, Gerard gets to work and live near the beach. The dude is a frequent surfer on and off set, and even a bad day on the waves gets him good coverage.

And yes, that is, indeed, me being bitter.

If anyone would like to pay me to surf, I wouldn't mind. Just sayin'.

Oh, so he's a family man?

Apparently, when he's got a shirt on it's to cover the heart on his sleeve. Somehow, Gerard can shake his inner jock and stand in as a father figure like his upcoming role in Playing for Keeps for instance,  or the perfect husband in P.S. I Love You. Apparently, his roles run deep too as there's some speculation as to whether or not he and the newly-married Mrs. Timberlake (Jessica Biel) had some chemistry off set too.

What the hell?!

If I walk around in just a towel, I look like I'm homeless. And I'm in good shape. Gerard just has to rub it in, doesn't he? I wonder if there's a clause in all of his contracts: "Mr. Butler agrees to the following under the notion that at least one — if not, and preferably, more — scenes allow Mr. Butler to shed clothes for the purposes of female satisfaction and further assassination of fellow man's any remaining chance."

What'd you do, a million sit- ups before getting into the shower and another set right after, just for the heck of it?

Keep your wetsuit on, man. Give us a shot.



The list could go on and on, but truthfully, compiling more and more pictures for all you at home just doesn't make me feel too awesome about myself.

But that doesn't mean I'm through feeding your craving.

Yeah, when you're a male and you don't look like Gerard, you have to get through this world being friendly.

So before I take one last jab at Gerard, I'll be nice and give you the link to this gallery, replete with 32 more pictures of your dream man.

But before we close the curtains, I'd like to reveal this:

I had to.

Gerard is starring as this wee little lad in the upcoming comedy, Movie 43.

Hey DN, Sorry that you're upset!I just wanted to clarify that we do not delete or remove people's comments. We're not sure why some comments have disappeared, but we're working to remedy the situation, and encourage everyone to continue commenting, as we love to hear what you have to say. Thanks! -Entertainment Editor

Don't bother commenting here. Your comments are censored and removed. Thought this "journalist" group knew that censorship was illegal in the U.S.... that is IF they are actually in the U.S. Real shame too, as all the comments that were here before, were complimentary. Well, don't worry, I won't be back. Thanks.

Mrs. Gerard Butler in another life November 16, 2012 | 12:32 PM

Who doesn't love a man who is ruggedly handsome, funny, articulate, intelligent, kind-hearted, self-deprecating and who doesn't take himself so seriously? He's living his life, has a technicolour past and owns it, which makes him also immensely respectable as a genuine human being. The world is better with Gerard Butler in it! Sorry, guys, but if you're wanting to know how you can earn cred with the ladies, maybe take a cue from one of the pages of Gerard's book. :)

Sorry males but I'm about to make it worse (hi Joan). It's not just Gerry's physical attributes that make us adore him. He's also very approachable, friendly and accomodating to just about everybody most of the time. He had a hard-scrabble childhood, not knowing his father growing up but thanks to a dedicated mother he loves dearly he's down to earth and self-effacing, highly educated, very funny, and passionately dedicated to his work. BUT! He's also human with human frailties and failings he freely admits to, which ultimately makes him RELATABLE...

He is a rogue with a soft heart for ladies of all ages. Women love the idea of being both safe and protected, with a warrior, but well liked as a person by a man with a hard exterior and a soft heart. Many older women like him as well. He must remind us of the one who got away!

Joan November 15, 2012 | 9:53 PM

Gerry does it all and his army of fans adore him. One even brings his favourite gum to premieres for him . Hi Dragonslayer. He donates and works for CLIC Sargent, and many other charities and his best Gal is his Mum. Love ya Gerrrrryy can't wait to see Playing for Keeps. Please stay out of the water . Loveya Joan (hug).
