Gerard Butler Covers 'Los Angeles Confidential' October 2011

Gerard Butler grins from ear to ear on the cover of Los Angeles Confidential‘s October 2011 issue.

Here’s what the 41-year-old Scottish stud had to share:

On why he chose Machine Gun Preacher as his latest project: “I think what made me want to walk around in his shoes was just the man himself. What he’s achieved is so mind-blowing, so unbelievable – this person who just kind of takes on the world, decides to go into Sudan and build an orphanage in the middle of the civil war. He’s definitely not a Mr. Goody Two-Shoes, squeaky-clean hero, so it just felt like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

On taking nothing for granted…but never being used to being a celeb: “It’s almost like being successful makes certain people feel like they have the right to be completely invasive and aggressive in your life. That’s what really bothers me. I can’t often go to Starbucks without literally having five different cameras pointing at me. You smile and wave, but really you think, I don’t even want to do this anymore. I just want to go….At the end of the day, I love making movies.”
