PostSubject: The Life and Style Interview Translated in English   Sun Mar 22, 2009 1:11 am

Found the English translation to this German interview at http://www.gerardbutler.net/news/news_main.php?Action=Full&NewsID=3880.
So, what do you guys thinks especially about attracting women? I wonder, Helena, if he loses interests in a woman, once she loves him back, I bet this soulmate would have his ass whipped. Twisted Evil

Hamburg (ots) - for the camera Gerard Butler gives everything he's got - he even strips on request. But in the exclusive interview with Life&Style he also reveals a very sensitive side. In his films you can see the actor sometimes thoughtful, sometimes with tears in his eyes. "These tears a real. A story like 'Dear Frankie' can make me uncontrollably melancholic. I dissolve into bittersweet sadness...", Gerard Butler confesses in Life&Style.

In his films the actor often shows a lot of skin. Likewise in his new film "Rock'n'Rolla". But: "If I could keep my clothes I'd gladly do so. Unfortunately it was in the script...", the actor explaines. He says that there is nothing less sexy then seeing himself on the sceen - naked. "Sometimes people say: 'That was really sexy.' Then I ask myself: Are those people blind?"

But he also has some little obscene vain. "I'm quite a naughty boy. That's why I fit into the filmteam of 'Rock'nRolla' (...). We are always making a lot of dirty jokes when shooting”, Butler says.

But the 39 year old actor can also be very sensitive. “Success makes you happy – but not in the way love or a great relationship does.”

He is certain: with a solid relationship, which requires time and effort, he would have never gotten so far. “I’ve always been as free as a bird. And work always came first.

Many thanks to Marion and Kerstin for the above translation.

COMPLETE ARTICLE TRANSLATION (Thanks to Blueye at GBGF)
“All right, I admit it: I am a naughty boy”

Sex symbol Gerard Butler (39) gives it all and even strips if requested! But he hides a sensitive soul inside him that sheds some genuine tears once in a while…

L & S: In your latest movie ‘RnR’ you show a lot of skin, as you did in ‘300’. In ‘PS I love you’ you even strip! Has it become a ritual you’ve become fond of?
GB (bursts out in laughter): Trust me, if I can keep my clothes on in a movie I’d rather do that. Unfortunately it’s mentioned in the scripts. So, if I have to do a striptease, at least it should look good.

L & S: How do your friends react to those scenes?
G: Sometimes I actually hear: “That was kind of sexy.” I don’t hear that often but it happens (laughs)! It’s then when I ask myself whether people are blind?! There’s nothing I find less sexy then to watch myself naked on the silver screen

L & S: Oh, come on, don’t you have any naughty tendencies?
G: All right, I admit it: I am a naughty boy, which is the reason I fitted so well in the team of the movie ‘RnR’. We were a whole bunch of naughty boys! During the shooting we were constantly telling dirty jokes.

L & S: While you are usually a good boy – you are supposed to have a great talent for interior arrangements…
G: That’s right! I’ve just renovated my flat in New York, was responsible for the interior design and did it all by myself.

L & S: If a man renovates, there’s usually a woman involved, is it not?
G: Not with me it isn’t! I get lots of compliments for my decos. It seems like nobody thinks me capable of it. But I really disappoint when it comes to the art of cooking.

L & S: How would you describe your style?
G: Easy - Bare walls and great furniture!

L & S: That sounds like a secondary career with potential…
G: I don’t think so but at least I could hide in a beautiful flat if nobody wants to see me anymore.

L & S: You’ll be 40 soon. Don’t you sit in your beautiful flat once in a while and imagine a family to go with?
G: I’d really love to have children but I won’t be the only 40-year-old that doesn’t have kids. With a steady relationship that needs time and work, I probably wouldn’t have come this far. I’ve always been free as a bird and work had always been my first priority.

L & S: But does a career really make you happy?
G: Success makes me happy but not as much as love and a great relationship. Probably I’d be happier with a family. Sometimes I do miss the comfort and emotional security!

L & S: You sound quite emotional right now – in your movies one often sees you with tears in your eyes…
G: Those are real tears. A story like ‘Dear Frankie’ can make me uncontrollably melancholic. I literally dissolve into a bitter-sweet sadness…

L & S: How must a woman look for you to fall uncontrollably in love with her?
G: I don’t have any preferences or ideals, really. My problem is that I love all women: each in her way!

L & S: Have you ever fallen in love with a woman who wanted absolutely nothing to do with you?
G: Oh, yeah. When I was younger I wasn’t too successful with women, the opposite really! But that has always been my biggest problem: The bigger the challenge, the more I want the woman. As soon as she wants me, I don’t want her anymore (laughs). Isn’t that awful?”


Gerard couldn’t be without:… his Scotland: “You stand there in the mountains and feel the history! And the people are warm and have a great sense of humour.”
…his pug: “I adopted Lolita in spring 2006. Isn’t she cute?”
… Celtic Glasgow: “That’s my soccer team! I go and watch them in the stadium as often as I can.”
…London: “I really like London a lot, especially the trendy Notting Hill.”
… mum Margaret: “My mum often accompanies me to movie premieres. She can’t wait for me to finally wear a Scottish kilt!”

In his new movie ‘RnR he plays a tough guy. In real life he’s totally different: “I am a true romantic with all my heart.

Thanks for posting that remi! Smile

I thought he said his character in RNR was a lot like him in real life. Yet now he's saying he's totally different? Or is L&S saying it.... scratch

Should someone tell 'Elvis' that GB did the NY flat "all by himself"?

Thanks to Daisymay for the translation but some of the answers are becoming standard.

Maybe as fans, we already expect those same answers, plus we read everything about him, which can be quite repetitive.

Ahhh...the thrill of the chase. We now have the secret as to how to have Gerry fall madly in want of us....pretend we don't like him at all and want nothing to do with him. Neutral

That could be difficult, but possible. But it's the keeping him wanting and you you keep on pretending you don't want him. That could get difficult in the bedroom....but imagine what a fun game to play! Twisted Evil

Personally, if a guy only wanted me when I DIDN'T want him, then I'd be done with him pretty quick.

I feel like Rona Barett the second! LOL!! For those of you too young to remember, she was the queen of gossip in the seventies. She had two magazines, both very popular .."Rona Barret's Gossip" and Rona Barret's Hollywood."

Anyways....I say this because I came home to about TEN pm's from another place I frequent offering me stories on what they heard about our guy....knowing a woman who did this....a chick who fooked so and so.....size....skill.....personality......NUMBERS of conquests.....my head was reeling. I don't know why I was singled out to be given this information....I did not ask for it. One of them wants me to kick a bloggers but....a female who kissed and told.

Am I Mrs. Attila the fooking HUN? LMAO!

Of course, none of this can be verified....unless I want to be a detective. I frankly don't want to delve further.

WOW, Pil... I really don't know how to comment. BUT, I have been wondering that if Gerry...ah....gets around....I am pretty surprised that more of his conquests have not kiss and told...bragged.....whatever. They know he is a celeb....I doubt Gerbear swears them to secrecy...

I'm not saying by any means that what you're reading is true, but I just wonder that these women who have the good fortune to be able to get down and dirty with our guy and can keep it to themselves....

What am I saying? I have no idea..just slap me upside the head. With that said, I'm off to bed.... tootooloo, gals!

Frankly, I would definitely be interested in hearing the full stories and whether or not they have been verified, if you did ever decide to investigate your sourses, Leo. I'd rather know the full scoop, the good, the bad, and the ugly. I want to know what kind of guy Gerry actually is. That way I can decide for myself if I think he is worth following anymore.
