Gerard's breakthrough films were as the phantom in Phantom of the Opera and all greased up as a chest-beating King Leonidas in 300, which was rather fun, but his choices since haven't always proved spectacular. But here is the back-story, which I shall present in an abbreviated form.There have been a number of rom-coms, for example, including The Bounty Hunter, with Ms Aniston, which I downloaded but could not watch after it became evident Gerard's character kidnapped women for a living. I can't specify a movie, but there was one where I just think it was the wrong director, and another where the director had to be taken off the film because he basically had Alzheimer's. He says: "It really pisses me off when people go, 'Just go work with Paul Thomas Anderson or Quentin Tarantino'. OK, it begins with his parents, Edward and Margaret, who moved from Paisley, Scotland to Montreal, Canada, when Gerard was six months old. I was with my mum and the point where Richard Dreyfuss is under the boat and there's a hole in the boat, and the head pops out, I went into hysterics and she had to take me out of the cinema." He says he tried, in Olympus, to put in similar jump-out-of-your-seat moments.
"It made me very dependent on my mother, in a good way, as I do have an amazing mother." One who deserves Tuscany, then Jamaica? He says Reign of Fire, which was universally slated, "had 300 screenings all over America and every single one had the audience screaming and applauding and cheering and laughing".Here she is pictured back in February with her beau at the Oscars Vanity Fair party wearing a oyster hued Atelier Versace Couture gown. datingbörse kostenlos Gelsenkirchen Couture isn't for everyday or everyone, but the key elements of this dress, the beading, the organic waves and the sexy cut can be translated into wearable designs.It may be Gerard is realising all this too, and is also realising that, at 43, he is running out of time to do something about it. And if you make a few movies in Hollywood that don't make a lot of money, you've got to be careful."But yours always make a ton of money, don't they? Not these last ones I'm talking about." You need to work with Tarantino, I tell him, helpfully. It's not that easy." He does not, it soon becomes clear, count Olympus as one of his bad-luck movies, and volunteers proudly: "I was involved from start to finish, taking it to Antoine [Fuqua, the director] and getting him on board, and I worked so much on the script, ripping it apart and putting it back together, really putting flesh on the bones of it and trying to give it some real substance and meaning in terms of a fun, action thriller that is going be a rousing experience."Alarmingly, it's looking as if we may have to confront an elephant head-on but, thankfully, I manage to avert such a disaster by employing a particular tactic known as Speedily Changing The Subject Even Though It Makes You Seem Mad. Eighteen months later, the marriage broke down, so Margaret returned to Paisley to bring up the three children – she took classes to teach business studies – and Gerard did not see his father again for 14 years. I would watch movies, mostly American movies, and be so engrossed in those stories, all I wanted to do was be there. "I love trying to find new ways to make an audience jump," but I see where this is going, so head him off smartly. – "…but I have all my meals prepared by a chef."He gave up drinking at 27. "I was in Camden," he says, "and I had a crazy experience with these two sisters whom I was friends with from Glasgow, and we'd been out one night, and one of the sisters just went nuts. She just lost her mind and the other sister was freaking out and crying and saying, 'I don't know what's wrong with her' and I remember thinking: 'How many of these crazy situations do I have to get into? I woke up the next morning and looked in the mirror and didn't recognise myself. ' I actually went to the pub and thought well, I'll have a beer, and sit and contemplate this, and I just couldn't drink it."I feel," he says, "like I've come out of a string of… Their eventual reunion, he says, when his father simply turned up one day, "stirred up a shit storm in me" and when Edward, a bookmaker, died a couple of years later, Gerard went off the rails and took to drink. He once woke up in Paris, miles from where he'd been at a party, covered in gashes and blood and, to this day, he has no idea what happened. I wanted to be part of that romance or that fantasy or be that warrior or that struggling soul who finally makes it good." Maybe you didn't want to live your own story, I suggest. Or maybe I wanted to have my cake and eat it, live my story and everybody else's. I remember when Grease came out, I used to force my mum to try and grease my hair back and it was never long enough and literally I'd be screaming at her 'Do it. So, what does Gerard Butler eat, then, if he doesn't cook? I didn't recognise my face, and I didn't recognise my soul. I took a sip and went to the toilet and threw up and said: 'That's it'.

A law student at Glasgow University at the time, he drank his way though his degree, and was a reckless drunk. And he drank through his first job as a trainee civil lawyer in Edinburgh until he was fired, a week before he was due to qualify. If you'd stuck at it you could have sued lots of people on behalf of other people by now. He says: "I was at the doctor's a couple of weeks ago and found I'd broken two little bones in my neck from when I was doing Olympus." Jesus, I say. "Jobless, he decided to come to London in the hope of becoming an actor. And that's the last time I ever had a drink."Do you, I ask, think the drinking was the result of your father's double abandonment, first by absence and then by dying? "Right now, I'm sitting on some of the best scripts I've read in a long time." I'd like to see you do something quiet, I say."It's nothing," he says, "I hadn't even noticed it. But it's at times like that you think: I should have stayed behind a desk! "I think it created a lot of sadness in my life and self-doubt." Did he explain why he hadn't been in touch for all those years? He was incredibly entertaining and a great story-teller. He believes in The Secret, whereby you visualise what you want and, voila, it comes true. He says one of the scripts "does give me a nice opportunity to grow up a bit" but then adds "not that I would want to stop doing action and adventure".(Full disclosure: I don't see many action films, as they're not my favoured genre, so it may be there are even worse ones.)Anyway, being cowardly by nature, as well as a dissembler, I hope we can get through our hour together without mentioning the film – the elephant in the room! This is certainly my plan, as it would be any sensible dissembler's plan, so I kick off by telling him what a fantastic-looking, cutie-pie of a man he is, which, unusually, is actually the truth. not at all." It was close, but I think I got away with it.– or the subject of critical regard generally (the other elephant in the room! He has quality bone structure and what is known in the trade as 'piercing blue eyes'. um." So he quickly gives up, shrugs and says: "Yeah, I do," which I rather respect. He says, enthusiastically: "He's one of my favourite actors. Gerard Butler has an interesting back story, which you may well have read before, if you are a fan, of which there are many."I think he had his own issues to deal with and then he remarried and had another child." Did you like him? He was very smart, but also a complete bullshitter. He says he entirely loathed himself during his drinking years and "it takes a while to cast of that darkness" and "I know some things I will take to the grave". I feel, at this point, sufficiently brave to acknowledge one elephant, so ask: do you read your reviews?
