Gerard Butler: I Cried Thinking Acting Would Never Happen
Gerard Butler flashes his guns in a fitting t-shirt while stepping out for lunch on Friday (November 8) in Malibu, Calif.
The night before, the 43-year-old Scottish actor was handsome in a suit while attending the Ermenegildo Zegna Global Store Opening in Beverly Hills.
“When I got into acting it was because of a movie called Falls, which would be like a Clash of the Titans meets Lord of the Rings, that was made when I was about 15 years old. I had a dream that I was in that movie, surrounded by wizards, kings, warriors and a princess, where love defeated the forces of darkness,” Gerard recently shared to Haute Time magazine.
He added, “I went to my mom and told her, ‘Mom, I must be an actor!’ She was very sympathetic and loving, and said, ‘Sure, son.’ But at that time I thought this was never going to happen. I went back to my room and started crying because I thought, ‘I’m a 15-year-old boy from Scotland, how is that ever going to be where I end up?’ And yet here I am.”
