BUTLER ENFORCES PARTY LINE
Playboy actor Gerard Butler raised the roof to celebrate “Olympus Has Fallen” at L.A.’s Lure Nightclub on Monday. And according to our insider, nobody, including Ashley Judd, was leaving until Butler said so.
“She came early to the party, took photos and wanted to leave early, but she ran into Gerard as she was leaving and he convinced her to go back inside,” says our insider. “Of course you can't resist Gerard’s charms … So he held her by the hand and they walked through the crowd with the help of five bodyguards all the way to the back of the room.”
According to our insider, a sober Butler, drinking water and smoking like a chimney, told partygoers he’d provided lots of ideas for the flick, changed the script and even added scenes to the film, which he starred in and produced. Butler’s model girlfriend of nearly a year, Madalina Ghenea, was not on hand for the festivities, but Matt Damon, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman and Wilmer Valderrama were.
The big bash wound down around 12:30 a.m., but Butler wasn’t finished. Our insider overheard him making plans to hit a private party afterward at a Beverly Hills mansion.
