GERARD BUTLER TAKEN TO A BELGRADE CLINIC DUE TO EXCESSIVE ENJOYMENT IN SERBIAN FOOD AND BRANDY

Now this is what happens to celebrities who do not read HOLLYWOOD SPY. How many times have I told you people, that when you come to Serbia you can't drink slivovitz (lethal Serbian plum brandy) like you'd drink whiskey, vodka or any other poisonous liquid.
According to Serbian press, Gerard Butler, who is currently filming "Coriolanus" in Belgrade, has been taken to a private clinic yesterday by producers and his security. After blood testing, doctors have diagnosed a high blood pressure, and Gerard was given an IV. According to doctors, the high blood pressure was the result of Gerard's excessive enjoyment in Serbian delicacies and domestic brandy which led to mild food and alcohol poisoning. We don't have to mention that beside too much food and drink, Gerard has also exhausted his organism with too much work and too much partying, since Serbians have been seeing him in Belgrade clubs almost each night this week.
But at least the stories about Gerard being a great lad, have been proved again, since the clinic staff was more than impressed by his friendly attitude and positive character.

  1. This is the wildest thing I've ever heard. I can't tell if it's a joke, a la Onion, or if it's real. I'll assume it's real, or you wouldn't have posted it--and it's way past April Fool's. Great post! Lovesit.

  2. Since it is well documented that Gerard Butler does not drink only one half of that story could be correct. Sounds like he got a case of food poisoning and needed medical attention. That infusion was probably a IV for dehydration from being sick.

  4. The story was published here in Serbia, by all newspapers.
    I do believe that Gerard doesn't drink, but it takes just a small amount of Serbian slivovitz to get a bit tipsy. Not to mention that Serbian food is extremely caloric so the combination of those two in an unprepared body can cause problems.

  5. Jeez, he looks kinda rough in that pic...*cringes* not at all like the sexy Spartan.

    Hope he gets well soon, I love his movies, and his accent :D

  6. He is already well and fine, Dawn. I guess it was just a mix of exhaustion from filming, fatty Serbian food, a glass of strong brandy, the change of environment .... not even a Spartan can deal with that :) But as they report, he was released from the clinic the same evening, and has continued filming.

  9. Im Serbian, I live in Belgrade, I party all the time. He was in all different Clubs, but HE NEVER was in hospital! My friend is doctor in city central hospital and she checked that information! :)

  11. I understand that Mr. Butler was only out visiting the nightlife of Belgrade over this past weekend with the producers of the film. He has not been visiting nightclubs every night as the article leads you to believe.

    ReplyDelete
  12. And he doesn't drink alcohol at all. EVER.

  13. Gerry just works too hard, and doesn't know how to slow down. He has been going non-stop from country to country for the past 2 months. Then he went to Haiti, and still hasn't stopped. This is not good for your body. I think he doesn't know how to say 'no' when someone asks him to do things with them. Let hope he slows down before he develops real health issues. Btw, like the other poster said,he doesn't drink alcohol.

  14. This guy is an idiot... Does Butler not understand that instead of partying he should take the movie making seriously and concentrate on his own role to make it impressive? His acting has been totally lousy in many recent roles and I hoped so much that at least in this new role Butler would show his acting talent. Now I hope that Fiennes just fires him and finds an actor who takes his career seriously!

  15. I wouldn' call him an idiot, I believe he had this visit to the clinic exactly because he was working too hard, and because he was too committed to his professional duties at the set, and thus he got exhausted. Serbian food is very caloric, so if you are not used to it, it can also cause a high blood pressure and problems.

    We are here in Serbia, and we can confirm that he was seen yesterday again at BLACK PANTERS boat-club relaxing to Serbian music.

    Serbian newspapers ALO has also released a photo today taken on Monday or Tuesday in which you can see him with Serbian singer Mika, just after he received his IV, so he has a bandage on his arm.

  16. I live in Serbia, and few years ago one guy from Germany had come to my company. Me and my friends took him out to expiriance night life and also to taste food. Food is really good and tasty, but lot of people don't know when to stop. So, guy had a stroke when he went home. I need to say that he ate almost 1kg of meat that night.

  17. that's the price many have paid while visiting the most fun-loving country in the world :)

  18. He yo-yo diets. Really hard on the body as you get older.

    ReplyDelete
  19. eh, Serbian diet is lethal even for younger bodies! It doesn't matter if you are a proud Spartan or a Scottish hunk.

  20. Gerry Loves his food but does not DRINK. So I think that he has probably been over working abd I do know from his interviews that he takes this particular film very seriously. Glad he is back to his fitness peak though and that he charmed all the staff at the clinic. He's a sweetie.

    Love him

  21. Don't buy the drinking part of the story as he doesn't drink. Know that for a fact. He does like his food though and his partying especially when there are pretty women around. When he was filming TUT, he would be out everynight partying at Villa and this was well-documented. He's also a sex addict. Too much good food, too much sex and little sleep can get you in the hospital. He's not 20 anymore and he will just have to accept that he has to slow down, get more sleep, avoid casual sex and overeating and try and find somebody to settle down with if he wants to live past the age of 50.

  22. We all hope he takes better care of himself. Your age catches up to you no matter how fit or fine you feel. He is a hard worker, puts in 150% with everything he does - maybe everything is being blown out of proportion just a little bit. I'm sure he's just fine, doing a fantastic job and just enjoying everything the city has to offer. Give the guys a break! Everything he does is analyzed and critiqued....Gerry enjoy the ride but everything in moderation. And I think he looks amaaaaaaazing!

    ReplyDelete
  23. yep, Vicks, that's what I'm glad about as well - it seems he's been having a great time here in Serbia, and that he enjoys both his free time here and the work on the set.

  25. Anyone that knows anything about sobietry can tell Gerry has not been sober for a long time. He likes to smoke and not cigarettes, all of you fans that build him up to be this perfect human that will marry you someday, reality check please. I like Gerry but I'm sorry 300 suck the looks out of him, he is only 40 and look 50!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I agree that fans can sometimes get too subjective and too biased, but I also wish I'd look half as good as Butler, and he is 40, while I'm only 30 :))

    @Yesssss
    well, mum will always defend her son, wouldn't she? :)
    You've seen the photos of Butler with Mika Kostic in which you can clearly see bandage on his arm, so he obviously did get an IV.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Nobody's perfect. That was makes him so appealing - he's human like the rest of us. And fans acknowledge that some of his movies are not of supreme quality, but he's lovable all the same. The way he treats fans says a lot about him as a celebrity - he doesn't need to make time for everyone, but aims to. His drinking got him into a lot of trouble in the past and he's very hard on himself/is his own worst enemy so I'm positive he does not drink ever any more. And if he does, what of it? Who's business is it? As for smoking, who cares? Just because he might smoke something or someone says he smokes something - we're supposed to believe it or give a damn? We're fans of him and his work and what he does is his business. That's all. We all have lives - and yes I'm happily married, just enjoy his looks/movies/character etc. And he looks better than ever, but that is of personal opinion. Just sayin...

  28. I haven't seen that photo.Where I can see it?

  29. Vicks for the president of all Gerry's fans :))


    Yesss - newspaper ALO published the photo few days ago, but they haven't put it up at their website edition, so you probably cannot find it around the Internet.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thanks.That's why I haven't seen it.I read only on-line editions.:)))

    ReplyDelete
  31. You should buy BLIC and ALO as well, since they never put all the pics at their on-line editions, you can see much more in the print editions.

    ReplyDelete
  32. My parents buy BLIC so I see all photos.I didn't know that ALO doing the same thing.Thanks!

  33. They say he doesn't drink.but he parties all the time in Hollywood and is seen in bars all over the place. What does he drink than. Sometimes his face though beautiful looks swollen and red like he has been drinking. Does he or doesn't he drink? I guess we will never no for sure. Just answer this question.

  34. People love Gerard Butler.They who really love him are interested in everything he does.They worry if he drinks or smokes out of concern for his health.Let's face it,he is the only one worthy to be a called a leading man. Sexy,beautiful and talented. Most of the leading men today are so plain looking.Not him,we enjoy just looking at that beautiful face.

  35. I love Gerard Butler. I've loved him ever since he played Dracula and Atilla the Hun. He's just so unusual looking and so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh, he was stunning as Atilla, that's the first time I noticed him.

  37. If you are asking how this could have happened that means you have never been in Serbia! My American husbands first sentence in Serbian was "nisam gladan" (I'm not hungry). There was no one to give Gerry that advice!

  38. yu, a nisi ga naucila i "nisam zedan" ili "ja ne pijem" :))))

  39. Gerard Butler is the most beautiful man I have ever seen. Handsome in a manly way,not a girlish way,the way some of the pretty boys in Hollywood look like.He is pretty but manly looking. What a doll huba huba huba.I would be happy if all the men on the planet looked exactly like him.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I can't stand those cutsie pie pretty boys in Hollywood that look girls. They have those cute little turned up noses.UGH Thank God we finally have a handsome leading man that looks like a handsome man.We found him in Gerard Butler. Long may he reign. God bless you Gerard Butler,I love you.
