Gerard Butler is a Big Apple Beefcake
300 star Gerard Butler hits up the New York City nightlife late Monday night.
At the 2008 Comic-Con convention late last week, the 38-year-old Scottish stud was asked how Guy Ritchie compared to other directors he’s worked with.
Gerry said, “Well, he has a different name which was a big thing for me. No. What I loved about Guy, and I’m sure he knows it, but that name, it’s kind of in your soul. He’s an institution and suddenly you’re there and you’re working with him. What surprised me was how easy going he was. For me then it’s like trusting that you have a director who knows exactly what he wants, but he’s going to let you do what you want and there’s a natural flow that we kind of all got into as we hung out and spent time together. The script has a rhythm. It’s just got a rhythm and he really kind of understood that, but at the same time he just lets it happen. He interjects when it’s necessary, but that’s what’s great about the movie (RocknRolla), it has this flow to it, this rhythm. It’s really the script. It’s just learning to trust that. He’s kind of like the master director that way.”
Guy responded, “Thanks, Gerry. You will have another job after that.”
Gerry then joked, “Did I get it right? Was that good? I didn’t understand what you wrote here.”
