Gerard Butler takes his dates to Disneyland, then Butlers them in hotels


Back in the day, before Ryan Gosling got with Eva Mendes, his go-to date move was taking a girl to Disneyland. He took all of his hookups there, in quick succession within, like, a year. I seem to remember that he even took Blake Lively to Disneyland! Ha. Yes, I remembered that correctly. Blake Lively got Gosling’d at Disneyland in 2010. Then Ryan took Eva Mendes to Disneyland and they’ve been together ever since.

Why this trip down memory lane? Well, Gerard Butler is stealing from Gosling’s playbook. The Butler took a lady to Disneyland and then he Butler’d her in a hotel room following their fun times.

Gerard Butler was spotted strolling around Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., hand in hand with a mystery woman on June 23.

Now, Life & Style can confirm his lucky lady is Carmella Casinelli, a TV producer.

“They hit all the big rides together,” a witness tells Life & Style: “Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean and Indiana Jones.”

And the excitement didn’t end when the couple left Disneyland. “After the park,” adds the witness, “they checked into the Grand California hotel!”

[From Life & Style]

L&S has a photo of Carmella – she’s pretty. She’s not the same woman in these photos from a few weeks ago. Which is fine – Gerard is obviously single and dating whoever he wants. He has ladies in NYC, ladies in LA, ladies in the porto-potty. Wherever. But the Disneyland thing… I’m still not into it. I mean, if you’re just going to have a good time, sure. Have fun. But it seems like a weird “thing” to do for A) first dates or B) pre-hotel-sex shenanigans. Plus, Gerry has a bad back! Some of those rides might have hurt.

    I can’t believe I used to think he was hot.

    • dancinnancy says:


      Though Dear Frankie was his best.

    • Frida_K says:

      I know, me too.

      I thought he was way sexy when he was in that 300 stage but then the whole story of Brandi Glanville came out of the woodwork and shut my spice shop down for good.

      Does anyone know about the porto-potty thing? It’s been mentioned here several times but I never got the story. Please tell me that he didn’t bang a random in a porto-potty? How does anyone know this? Did he brag?


    • Frida_K says:



      Thank you for the link here. I’m appalled.

      My morning coffee wasn’t doing all that much for me yet, but reading this story made my eyes fly wide open.

      I will never regard Gerald Butler in the same way again.


      • kri says:

        God, I can totally see him humping Cinderella from behind while sheis trying to give directions to Epcot or something. I think he would bang a rabbit hole.

    • Lady Macbeth (ex HiddlesF) says:

      I was totally a fan…. After post-300 shenanigans he fell from the pedestal for me. Still a goodlooking man but ewwwww…. Portapotty affairs, random kissings with girls in the street, putting fingers up Jennifer Aniston’s derrière… Forgot Brandi Glanville of course…

      I wouldn’t hit that anymore, he is too sleazy… He could be a role model for people who want to get endless STDs…

  2. Twofer says:

    I never got Butlers appeal tbh.

    Also, I totally get the Disneyland dates. Its informal and unusual for a date which are pluses. Me, I cant stand restaurant based first dates, too much pressure and potential for awkward silences. And nothing gets me hotter than having a good laugh. No, I think an amusement park date breaks the ice and loosens tongues better than half a dozen restaurant dates.

    • Jen34 says:

      Disney would be an awesome date. How could you not have fun?

    • Sighs says:

      I love amusement park dates. You can talk endlessly in the line. You can find out how adventurous they are. How they act around kids. I think dinner/movie dates are the worst if it’s not someone you’ve been with for a bit.

      • Lexie says:

        My now-fiance took me to Disneyland for one of our very early (maybe 3rd of 4th?) dates. It was magical.

        I recreated our favorite ride in California Adventure by taking him up in a hot air balloon when I proposed a few weeks ago :)

    *eye roll* what are we, 12?

    • Ag says:

      seriously. i don’t understand grow-a$$ people doing this sort of stuff.

      • jess says:

        I’m 26 and I love going to Disney. More adults go to disney each year than families. It’s a great place to just have fun and forget about everything. No harm in having fun!

      • TG says:

        I really don’t understand why people think adults can’t love amusement parks. I love Disney World and am in my mid-30′s and have gone numerous times with and without kids. I would love it of a guy or anyone took me there. I am someone who has a ton of energy so walking around for hours is perfect for me and the thrill if the rides. I guess I never grew up because I love magic and the haunted mansion and the characters and all of it.

      • Mia4S says:

        Ditto @TG, well said. Adults who feel the need to snark about it strike me as odd. Why not just say to each their own? Why does it bother you? It’s not for everyone but I love it.

        Oh and before anyone starts, I’ve visited and/or lived in over 30 countries and work in a high level profession that required post-graduate training. So yes, I’ve seen the world.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Well, Ag, they told us off but good! Especially the one that “has seen the world.” Lol. I guess people walking around dressed as Disney characters is truly for the sophisticated, and we just don’t get it. They’re an angry little bunch, apparently.

      • Nordic Noir says:

        I recently read that rollercoaster-rides makes women sexually excited, so I guess Disneyland somehow makes sense as a date for grownups too. Too bad being scared shitless doesn’t really show off my most attractive side…

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        @Nordic Noir
        I don’t feel too sexy when vomiting. Lol

      • Mia4S says:

        Bah humbug! Right Goodnamestaken? ;-)

        But if you’re a puker, I get the negativity. And I sincerely thank you for staying off the rides. :-)

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        You’re welcome, Mia4S. I’m a puker and I’m scared of clowns, so maybe my negativity is covering terror. Lol

      • Isadora says:

        I don’t understand it either. I mean, if you like going to Disney World by all means do it! I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, it’s just that I personally don’t really see the appeal, especially as a first date. Maybe it’s because Disney didn’t play such a big role in my childhood as it did obviously for other people. I hardly ever see Disney films now as an adult either. Or maybe I just can’t (and don’t want to) combine Mickey Mouse and Cinderella with a hot date/sex appeal/etc. It’s really that part that throws me off… Because you can have rollercoaster rides (for those who are into this kind of stuff) also at “normal” entertainment parks without themes.

        But generally I very much prefer the lazy, traditional stuff for first dates – having a nice chat, tasty food, good wine.

    • lisa says:

      the idea of being stuck in a theme park with anyone makes me want to curl up in a fetal position and pray for the apocalypse

      if he didnt tell me where we were going before hand, i would refuse to get out of the car

    • Jake says:

      The reason Gerry was there was because he had taken his family there. He went with his sister and her husband and their two children. He also has a ranch not far away and he and his family returned there. He did not book into any hotel.

  4. Maria says:

    He’s gross.

  5. Erinn says:

    I unapologetically like him. Don’t even care. I know he’s a skeez, but there’s something about him that I can’t help but like.

    • Lady Macbeth (ex HiddlesF) says:

      I hope you like just his pictures…. Awww he was hot in Tomb raider…

    • aquarius64 says:

      Well, just make a doctor’s appointment after your date with this guy. Just sayin’…

      • Lady Macbeth (ex HiddlesF) says:

        Lol maybe a few appointments :D

      • Erinn says:

        I’d be getting a full round of vaccines, and antibiotics ladies.

        Mostly, I’d just like to sit and look at him and listen to him talk. I do have enough sense to be skittish about touching the man, haha.

      • Lady Macbeth (ex HiddlesF) says:


        You can get that voice and that accent from lots of good-looking Scots, better than getting butlered and leave with a disease lol

  6. Brin says:

    He’s the 8th dwarf, Sleazy.

  7. Ice Queen says:

    Ugh, blah…

  8. db says:

    Disneyland doesn’t equal romance, at least for me. Maybe Gerry’s a furry!

  9. cubfan34 says:

    He went to Disneyland last week with a “mystery date”, his sister, brother-in-law and two nieces.

    • fairyvexed says:

      He has a sister? I thought he just had brothers.

      Ugh. He’s like a petri dish with a penis.

    • pudintame says:

      Exactly Cubfan34. This whole excursion was a family outing and he just happened to bring a date. In most of the pics I’ve seen, they don’t even seem to know each other, much less be on a date, but according to “witnesses” for some oh-so-reputable websites/mags, he’s “off the market” and they were holding hands the entire time and she was grabbing his arm when she got scared. *eyeroll* (Having said that, the family looks comfortable around her, so maybe it really is “something”. I don’t care. Either way, it won’t effect my opinion of him in the least.)
      If you don’t like him that’s fine, but you see what you want to see: an immature skeeze who “takes dates to Disneyland”.

  10. JR says:

    To be fair, John Stamos invented this move… not Gosling. That man practically lives at Disneyland.

    • fairyvexed says:

      John Stamos once boasted about tricking a fan who desperately wanted to sleep with him. At the last possible moment Stamos ducked out and substituted someone else. She didn’t consent to sleep with someone else, though, so what does that make him?

  11. Emma13 says:

    Ummm, I love Disney World and Universal dates. I can see how others might not because it’s expensive and right now it’s super hot and crowded. I can get myself and other guests in for free, so it’s a great date. My boyfriend and I went on one of our first dates to Magic Kingdom and it was amazing. Plus, it’s cheaper than going to dinner and a movie and a hell of a lot more fun.

  12. Fatty Magoo says:

    Didn’t even read the story because I can’t stop staring at his ARMS!! Sweet baby J his body is on point right now!

  13. Elizabeth Bueno says:

    I was curious. When did he actually meet her. She came out of nowhere. At that’s what I think.
