The weekend “300″ came out, for whatever reason I was at the same nightclub as Gerard Butler. It was Sunday night and we were both at a club called Guys in Beverly Hills. At the time, he remembered me from the press junket, and for a little while I got to hang out with his group which included his brother and a number of other friends. They were all on cloud nine on hearing the news that “300″ had made so much money, and for a brief blip of time, I got to see what it was like to be in that world. I have to say, it was really cool.
Cut to a few days ago. For the first time since that night, I interviewed Gerard and I brought up that weekend and asked how his life has changed since “300″. Of course we also talk about his new movie “The Ugly Truth”, his next big action film “Gamer”, and he tells me some great stories about going to Brazil. It’s a great interview so take a look:
