Gerard Butler Opens Up About Rehab To 'Men's Journal'

Gerard Butler is manly as can be on the cover of Men’s Journal‘s November 2012 issue, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 42-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On entering rehab: “When you hear the word rehab, you think, ‘He’s a mess, he’s f–ked up.’ But I’m glad I did it. I’ve made a s–tload of wrong decisions in my life. But I know I’ve made some right ones as well.”

On why he chose rehab: “I haven’t had a drink in 15 years. I was actually taking a minimal amount [of pills] when I went in. It was more about becoming a mental warrior and not letting pain bother you. The [instructor] would say, ‘I don’t want to hear about your f–king MRIs or your f–king X-rays…Let’s learn how to say to the pain, ‘F–k you.”

On a wave almost killing him during Chasing Mavericks: “We saw it coming half a mile away. But there was nothing you could do. It just went on and on. It was absolutely terrifying. You know how people say you get a sense of peace?I didn’t experience that. It was violent.”
