Gerard Butler: Does He Like To Interview?

Walking the red carpet leads to lots of camera flashes, but it also requires extemporaneous, quick wit in an interview.

Do you think Gerry likes the process?

    He’s very good at it. He’s a tireless promoter of his projects with a talent for being able to answer the same questions without sounding like he’s answered the same questions over and over again. (It’s only those of us who’ve followed him for a long time that recognize an old anecdote) He loves to tell a story, but do I think he like’s doing the press gauntlet at a premiere or any other high-profile event? No, I don’t. I do think he enjoys his brief interaction with fans at these things. If he didn’t have handlers, he’d end up doing “just one more” for hours.

      You are of course correct about the charm and patience of the man. He is also often the only star that makes sure he visits his fans at such events–as was the case at this premiere. Both thoughtful and smart.

  2. It looked like hard work for him. He seems like a serious guy. Thanks for sharing the shots!

    • christinelondon says:

      I think so too–especially with FIVE weeks of non stop engagements to promo his latest film. *wipes brow* Can you image if we had to fly to a different city around the world nearly every day–many red eye overnighters? In this case he jumped on a plane to New York (red eye) to be on Kelly and Michael “Live” the next morning.

      • weetiger3 says:

        While I agree with the sentiment, actually in this case, Kelly and Michael “Live” had been prerecorded when he was in New York last week. (I questioned it at the time – how can it be “live” etc. In fact, the Today Show segment with Kathie Lee and Hoda which will be part of the show tomorrow, was taped on the day he was interviewing with Matt Lauer. *shrugs* It’s all done with smoke and mirrors LOL)

        • christinelondon says:

          Indeed a crazy schedule! A friend from Moscow is looking forward to his visit there next week, so he is definitely on the move.

          Thanks for sharing! Smoke and mirrors–thank heavens for them, to provide some sanity 🙂

    Mmm-Mmm. I don’t know how he feels about the process, but I like it. I like it a LOT (when he does it, I mean). I think he’s smiling at you in that last shot. Thanks for the eye-candy Miz Christine!

  4. Hi Christine,

    I don’t know how other ladies might feel about this, but I don’t think he should be allowed to use any accents other than his Scotch-given one in the movies. Gerald Butler w/ an American accent is hawt, but w/ his Scottish accent, there are no words.

    • christinelondon says:

      I suppose he does not want to limit the roles available. Yeah and sure–the Scot accent is marvelous and I think he uses it whenever possible. 🙂

    I don’t know how he feels, but I like him!

  6. That you were close enough to take pictures is awesome. I’ve read many times that he loves hanging out and talking with his fans. My daughter and I flew to Hollywood for the premier of Beowulf. We didn’t see Gerard but did get to hear the director speak!

    • christinelondon says:

      Does that mean you went to Palm Springs film festival? Sturla was there speaking about the film and making of. He was also at “Cut” film fest. Very interesting shoot, that/ Iceland is wild and unforgiving. So impressive were the stories that the shooting of Beowulf appears in my “Soul In His Eyes” – a novel.

      As part of my “Christine Goes Hollywood” blogs, I have had the good fortune to chat with Gerry as well. As an outsider looking in, I dress the part and seem to fit in with the Hollywood crowd. Maybe it is a bit of my hutspa too, but it has afforded me many wonderful memories.

      Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, Jerrie 🙂

    Does Gerry like to interview? I think the guy would rather do interviews than kick messengers down wells. Where else can he say whatever comes to mind and still be loved?
