Gerard Butler Spends His New Year's Day on the Beach in Mexico!

Gerard looked to be having a nice time enjoying a meal and celebrating the new year.

It’s shaping up to be a busy year for the actor: he stars in the upcoming Keepers, as well as the action crime-drama Den of Thieves, which is due out later this month in theaters.

    Oh look at the “happy” couple 😶

  • GFW

    That look (on his face) is priceless. It seems to read, “My head is exploding with useless information!” It’s hilarious.
    More like, “My God, I don’t normally get this close to you. Dang, woman, use some moisturizer once in awhile! You’ve got mummy skin at, er, ohm, 40, right?” His look is too funny.

  • GFW

    The do over is better. At least he looks normal, but not healthy. I suspect ordered to keep corrector shoes on so he doesn’t get into trouble from insurance teams who might be monitoring his 45th vacation since his motorcycle accident.

  • anotherguest

    He looks like his head is somewhere else, and she looks like she’s about to cry. She flips from appearing to dominate him to looking like a fragile little flower who needs saving.

  • GFW

    She looks like what she is: unbalanced nutter.
    Trouble is he looks like one too when with her. Always appears staged and phony. Like work.
    I mean I could fill thought bubbles with that look on his face for hours! He looks like he is looking at a stranger. My guess is… he is.
    The other one where he’s holding his creamy drink isn’t much better. Looks totally bored.

  • anotherguest

    I’d like to see a wider shot. They aren’t alone at that table, IMO.

  • AbbyRichter

    I just don’t get it.
    Like there’s no intimacy between them lately, but who the fuck goes to party down the new year with an ex, right? So are they together or not?
    In some shots, they look like a regular middle aged couple and then I see her face painted like she’s fucking twelve and out with her dad. Wtf?
    If she doesn’t walk the carpet with Gerry for at least one DoT event, then fuck them both.
    Like what is that? Is she fuck buddy that you don’t want on the carpet even though the entire world knows you’re together?
    Sorry guys, but they are close. You don’t spend this much time with people you only like a little bit.

  • GFW

    Nah, that’s enough. It’s far too crowded all the time for my tastes. It’s just sad the papper could not catch anything better from watching him. Strange photos. Unsellabe. Unusable.

  • GFW

    I agree. He likes having someone available.
    She’s going to get her red carpet. She’s been pimping herself as valuable work ensemble with the crew!

  • AbbyRichter

    That’s just so sad. For both of them.

  • GFW

    He needs someone who doesn’t do jack shit or have a life to be around so he can fill / kill time. What the hell else does he do? Bake in the sun.

  • anotherguest

    My point was, I’d like to see who else is there. The whole crew goes to Mexico every NYE. He only missed one trip in four years.

  • AbbyRichter

    IMO he does work hard. I think it’s more behind the scenes. If at 48 he is in a relationship with someone just to pass the time then…I don’t even want to think about that. It would be really sad.
    I’m on the Morgan hate train sometimes but I just feel bad for her now. It’s so embarrassing. Like girl, you deserve more.

  • GFW

    Let’s see. Live by the beach then head to another beach to do what they could do at the other one? Well, it’s cheap enough I suspect.

  • GFW

    But she doesn’t. Not to her at least.
    She’s fulfilling a life-long quest. I just don’t think it is what she thought it was.

  • anotherguest

    That part is weird. Maybe they need a change of sand. “GB, appearing soon on a beach near you”, LOL.

  • AbbyRichter

    I don’t know her motivations as an individual but I just see a woman who is happy being the girlfriend even though she’s treated like a side chick. Honey, most women grow out of that during college.

  • GFW

    I hear the drive to the area where the nicer parts of Mexico are are very hard to look at. Dead cows, poverty. Maybe it makes them feel grateful? Maybe that trek is JC required!

  • anotherguest

    Actually, I could swear I saw a State Department warning about Cancun/Tulum in the last few months because of cartel violence. It’s not the safest place to hang out.

  • GFW

    She never went to college. Oops.
    She’s never experienced any team-building exercises. She’s completely out of her depth. She’s never held down a job, worked. And please don’t call the ‘designing’ crap a job. And it shows. About as worldly as an mole.

  • AbbyRichter

    The face painting? Lol
    Whatever. It’s not my misery. If he’s happy with this, there is nothing anyone can do.

  • GFW

    I had, under my last account, mentioned the danger as an escalation for excitement.

  • GFW

    I don’t want to ‘do’ anything. He deserves her.

  • Sonia

    Why does he always look pissed off when photographed with her lately? I know it’s just ‘a few moments’ caught by cameras and they could be having a ball the rest of the time but what a coincidence to always be caught with him looking like he’d rather be anywhere else? She must be so upset the paps didn’t catch her whole face so she can print and frame these pix too, lol.

  • AbbyRichter

    Half of her face covered is her best angle isn’t it? Lol

  • GFW

    I don’t see pissed off. I see him looking at her like she’s an alien or just said something stupid or speaking gibberish.

  • Sonia

    Totally. I’m glad not to have to see that monstrosity. :)

  • Sonia

    “then I see her face painted like she’s fucking twelve and out with her dad.”
    Lol, I’ll say it again, don’t ever change, Abby! :)
    I think that facepaint was either to cover her massive forehead or get attention to stand out in a crowd cos who would look at that face otherwise?
    I still say casual/easy relationship or fuckbuddy. You don’t ‘date’ someone for more than three years (even if on/off) and never be seen with their kid. Their holidays always seem to be sex/beach getaways (and lately not alone either). Not like she’s a struggling single mum who desperately needs treats/time away from her kid cos she’s juggling three jobs. They only seem to hook up when he has nothing else better to do, IMO.

  • anotherguest

    I doubt they’re even aware of the warnings. The whole lot of them have been going there every winter, probably for years before Butler even entered the fold.

  • GFW

    I can think of a 1,001 better places to create a tradition for welcoming a new year. They come off as cheap low-end shysters. I wonder what Ari thinks of it? Guess if he wants to hang with Butler he has to do what Butler wants to do. But Mexico? Really?

  • anotherguest

    Ya. and Scotland would have been a good choice. Can you even remember the last time he stayed long enough for Hogmanay?

  • GFW

    He’s a Californian now. Californication. lol
    It’s cold here, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I adore four seasons: the master plan.

  • anotherguest

    I think the transformation is complete. He’s truly Americanized now, and Hollywoodized.

  • GFW

    It’s a well established pattern. A fight. A silence. A reconciliation. Then another fight. A plot line for a TV movie. But it makes for a harrowing life. It shows.

  • GFW

    … all complete with situational ethics. Bravo!

  • anotherguest

    No one else is painted, so I’m going with another Norma Desmond moment.

  • GFW

    He’s dressed like an ex Duran Duran clubber. AJ nailed it. All that’s missing is a headband.

  • AJ

    Imo, she’s not the side chick. She’s the main chick in whatever capacity whether that’s GF Or FWB. The side chicks are the women he hooks up with in between if that. He’s addicted to Maliboob! :)

  • Time to ask…

    LOL! No, she isn’t.

  • GFW

    And I hope each time he looks at her he remembers what all he did to be with her.

  • AJ

    I agree Sonia. That’s a great line/comment! Good point about the kid. I almost forgot about him.
    Idk, it’s hard to decipher for me because on one hand yes it appears like this relationship is on and off, he hasn’t always treated her so great publicly, you don’t see them with the kid much and he doesn’t acknowledge her, pose or walk the red carpet with her but on the other hand, he’s not dated anyone else or even openly hooked up with anyone, he seems to spend most of his down time with her, do a lot of things with her, and even when it seems like it’s over it starts all over again. Again and again. Is all this worth it, just for a FWB? Is there no other person he can make FWB with? It’s clear she’s head over heals for him. That I have no doubt. Would he really string this girl along for all this time? She’s not going anywhere that’s for sure. She’s tireless. Time will tell I guess. I predict another year of the same shit show. :)

  • anotherguest

    Maybe he was telling the truth in that interview. Maybe in his view he IS too busy for a personal life. Think of it this way…If someone is convenient and makes themselves available whenever you have down time, then you go with that for the time being. Obviously she’s okay with whatever she can get, so it works for both of them. I think he’s over picking up randoms. He probably doesn’t have the energy for it these days. If he was telling the truth, and this is what’s happening, that’s why you don’t see him acknowledging her, because there’s nothing to acknowledge. I’m sure he knows how bad it’s looked for a long time now, but he doesn’t care.

  • Sonia

    I was just about to reply then I saw anotherguest’s reply below and it’s pretty much what I was gonna say, lol.
    I’ve said a lot of that before too – he’s busy and doesn’t have time to start a new thing with anyone so why not stick with this, um, tried and tested woman? He hasn’t acknowledged her etc cos there’s nothing to acknowledge about a woman you have a casual relationship with. He’s 48, I don’t know why some people think he must be dead serious about this one if he isn’t seen with loads of other women (like in the past). He’s not a randy young guy anymore, he probably isn’t looking for sex around every corner. She’s a ‘safe’ option – won’t blab to tabloids, takes all his shit, and is easily available to fit into his schedule. And like I said, there are probably like 50-100 fans max (including those on fan sites, and I’m being very generous with this number) who know about this rollercoaster ride they’re on so, in the grand scheme of things, he isn’t exactly looking bad to many people, IMO.
    I don’t know, to me, the kid never in the picture is a big red flag. They could be best buddies for all I know but he never seems to be around the kid, even in ‘sneaky’ photos taken by fans etc, they seem to be with friends most of the time, not the kid, that isn’t very normal to me, although I do know that nothing about this entire Malibu bunch is normal! :)

  • Sonia

    I totally agree and exactly what I’ve said in the past too. :)

  • LovelyK

    i came back from Cancun about a week ago it’s pretty close to Tulum. I don’t see what’s wrong with it ? Great weather, warm water (compared to the pacific ocean) .It feels safe and tourists bring a lot of money to the area. Why being so negative ??

  • Sonia
  • The Noise in The Walls

    She’s a beauty

  • LovelyK

    looks photoshopped to me

  • Sonia

    Legion has a few new photos added to the Tulum ones, just diff poses. And they’ve finally added her name but they’ve also put in ‘Irish actor Gerard Butler’, lol.
