Gerard Butler Freakin' Frenzy (Blog)

I feel like it's been sort of seething below the surface of polite Albuquerque ever since the film Game came to town: Our collective if covert lust for Gerard Butler.

I mean it -- I've had countless conversations in the last two months with otherwise sober and sane women about the absolute hysteria that the star of Phantom of the Opera and 300 has been causing in our town.

And now the rest of the world is experiencing it too. According to celebrity staker site TMZ, 300 crazed fans showed up at the Hollywood premier of the man's latest film, screaming and (for all I know) having fits of the vapors over a guy whose name I'm not even sure I'm pronouncing correctly.

Speaking for myself, I periodically forget that he's here. And then someone will mention it or I'll see an exploded truck lying across the road Downtown and it's like I almost get a little bit faint. Somehow it wasn't like this for me with any of those other productions. But Game (maybe coming at the same time as the release of No Country For Old Men?) is the movie that's finally brought it home for me -- hot Hollywood guys walk among us here in the Duke City.

Note to self: Don't leave the house without lipstick on. Game is shooting here through February, and one never knows where Gerry might be lurking....

I think his first name is "Gerard." And my mother thinks he's totally hot. At 5:37pm on December 11th, 2007, Kitson Harvey said…
I'm so worked up I can't even think straight! You're right, Edith. I've fixed it. At 5:41pm on December 11th, 2007, 2wheelz said…

Kitson's on to something here. I work downtown and several female co-workers have gushed with excitement about Gerard being about - even though not a single one has actually seen him. His digitally enhanced abs have come up in conversation more than a few times in recent water cooler chats much to the amusement of us guys. At 7:54pm on December 11th, 2007, davis said…
I am a total nerd and have no idea who this dude is. But I'm going straight to IMDB after this. 2wheelz, you just made me laugh out loud in public! Thank you! At 7:58pm on December 11th, 2007, davis said…
Dad gum. He's hot. At 8:00pm on December 11th, 2007, 2wheelz said…
No problemo Davis...glad to help. I wish I could take credit for it, but that is what we who live downtown call the frenzy of movie productions over the last couple of years.

I heard a rumor that Sam Jackson was also in Game...true? At 8:18pm on December 11th, 2007, andrea said…
I fell in love the 1st time I saw '300', lust the 2nd time.
Although I've yet to see him, I've got my eye on him! At 8:31pm on December 11th, 2007, Jennifer Concklin said…
Check him out in Attila released in 2001; AMAZING! That is when I decided he's my boyfriend. I don't get into celebrity pop culture but he's the exception. 1
