GERARD BUTLER in NYC 6 Degrees of separation, oh wait I talked to him would that be 0 Degrees?

I just finished photographing Gerard Butler & crew at their evening shoot. I will be posting the photos for Friday, shortly.

So I have been promising my Gerard Butler friend in the UK, Sharon, the info on the conversation with Gerard Butler that I had in NYC over Fashion Week, but couldn't tell her as I didn't know which part of the conversation might be written about in the paper where I submit such interesting things. So here goes (these are photos I didn't send to my agency)
There's no doubt that Gerard has a legion of fans, as they were the ones to recognize him first as he walked up to the Tent's last Monday night to catch the William Rast (Justin Timberlake) Fashion Show. I first noticed him as the women he was walking with had a huge azz fur hat on. I was going to snap her just for that hat, then these fans started screaming and I recognized him and ran over the poor guy didn't have a chance as I started to bombard him with Philadelphia questions
First the 6 Degree thing. I see Gerard Butler is on twitter, and commented that he didn't like a photo that I took that is on Gerard Butler.net

I read on CelebrityGossip.ie :

Gerard Butler was so pleased to see his face tattooed on a fan’s chest he took a photo.

The besotted admirer approached the actor at a New York Fashion Week after-party at Tenjune nightclub and professed his love for the Scottish actor.

He then lifted his shirt to reveal a torso completely covered with tattoos of scenes and characters from the film ‘300′, in which Butler starred.

The 39-year-old star - who played King Leonidas in the surreal epic about the Greek-Persian wars - was so amused he took a photo of the body art with his camera phone.

He was later seen showing the images to a group of models.

Gerard recently revealed he is constantly stopped by over-enthusiastic fans.

He said: “You get people in the street where they literally, at times, go crazy, ‘You don’t understand this was the best film I ever saw!’ And it’s the strength of that reaction that is most overwhelming.”Gerard told me that he loves Philly, the food, the people, the accomodations (yeah I know where you are, I don't know why everyone else is so baffled even the press). I guess production stopped for a week because you were in NYC for the Fashion, and then at the Oscars.
There's no way you were back in time for filming on Monday, will you be back in time today?
for the ....Explosions from Holmesburg Prison in Northeast Philly tomorrow and Tuesday? The crew from Law Abiding Citizen will blow up a couple of cars on the set of the psychological thriller, starring Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx. Regina Hall (Scary Movie) will visit toward the end of production next month to play Foxx's wife. (Remember I photographed Regina Hall that day with Jaime Foxx leaving the restaurant Parc a few weeks back)

The photographers are trying to take a photo of the threesome, but the gracious Gerard is giving his attention to this fan. Trust me we had enough shots of him and it was time for him to make his escape.Which he did:The shot that made the Philadelphia Inquirer on Sunday

Later TMZ caught him going into the Gramercy Hotel for the Afterparty for William Rast and there she was the women with the big hat.
The 6 Degrees of separation, but really 1 Degree is Gerard Butler commenting on this photo I took of him that is on this site: @gerardbutlernet Not a very flattering picture. Couldn't you girls find a better one?

Sources are reporting that Gerard Butler has a new lady friend, Bollywood star, Priyanka Chopra.

If you think this woman is Chopra, you would be mistaken. The woman in the pic is Gina Robinette, a long time friend of Gerard's. Just to clear that up.

Gerard does not have a Twitter page. In fact, he has never even heard of Twitter! It is undoubtedly an imposter looking for some action in Gerry's name.

just curious to know but how do you know he doesn't have a twitter page?

Donna,

Gerry's management has confirmed through gerardbutler.net that he is not on twitter. That's good enough for me.
I think twitter is just a tad bit creepy, but it could be considered a useful PR tool for a lot of celebrities.

There was a person claiming to be Gerard Butler on Powerful Intientions about a month ago. There was some trouble there where he had flirted with a woman there.

Gerard Butler is not dating Priyanka Chopra. He was spotted snuggling with the Norwegian girl Celine Marie Moe from www.inewyork.no at Bar Masche on Sunday. They were later seen at Cipriani upstairs singing karaoke

The threesome incident happened the night he went to Strongbox, but I deleted most of the info since I got over 200 hate comments. In fact I took the comments off too. I should put them back, maybe when I get home.
