Gerard Butler: You Don't Have to Be American to Watch 'Olympus'

Gerard Butler heads inside the BBC 2 studios in rainy London, England on Thursday (April 4).

The 43-year-old actor is in town to promote his latest film Olympus Has Fallen, which he premiered the evening before.

“To me you watch this universally, you don’t have to be American. It’s an attack on the free world. It could just as easily be Downing Street, it could be anywhere.” Gerard said, referring to Brits relating to the movie, comparing their Prime Minister’s residence (Downing Street) to the White House. “I can just imagine Downing Street with two coppers running out with their batons…”

    Back on cocaine to keep up with his lifestyle and all the stress? From one premiere to another all around the world in a few days….He must be very exhausted. I hope he´s not using again.

    Maybe the next installment could be Downing Street Has Fallen?
    No, he’s right, it is an attack on freedom. It is a terrorist take over. It could have been The Pentagon for instance but instead it is the symbol of freedom, to us here, the White House. A sacred home. A home where family live. It is a private residence. An attack on that, their privacy and security. To crush them to submission.

    @Can’tGetEnough: Thank you gal, threads are moving to fast to keep up. Seems like Gerry is having a ball. Way to funny!

    Today, we had an armed helicopter searching for drug runners, etc and in our city – well, we haven’t seen something like that so people were in a panic mode wondering what was going on here (TX) and the person below commented:

    Don’t worry people, the north Koreans have no interest in the valley, and Gerard Butler is not making any movies here anytime soon. My advice right now is to stay out of bigger cities. Lol

    I had to laugh…
    Oh and yes, there is drug bust as of right now…

    @GFW: Yes, so sacred they closed it off to the citizens who pay to keep it up. Especially feel bad for the kids on Spring break that are denied entrance. A little put out about that.

    That was Thatcher, the wicked witch of the South, who had the gates put up because she wanted gates just like the Queen. Talk about delusions of grandeur.

    @Lord Love a Duck:
    Heard they’re working on that for that reason. I’ve never been inside and don’t want to. Not my thing. The Library of Congress is more to my liking.
    Think it was budget cuts or something more than fear. Sorry, don’t keep up with my own local news!

    SeeSawSally Says:

    Gerry has to be in Rome tomorrow and Saturday for the Italian premiere of the movie plus press junkets, he’s then supposed to be off to South Africa (Johannesburg) for more of the same, for 2-3 days, then Mexico on the 14th. It’s exhausting just thinking about it.

    It’s on Saturday.
