It’s 2pm on a sunny day in Beverly Hills when Gerard Butler walks into the Crescent Hotel for our cover shoot. Tall, fit, and devilishly handsome, he’s funny, smart, charismatic, and charming, somehow all at the same time. Whatever je ne sais quoi is, Gerard Butler has it in spades with the kind of smile that charms women and makes men root for him.
I asked him, “complete this sentence: a gentleman always…” Not really sure what I was expecting to hear, his answer stopped me in my tracks.“Speaks with integrity and protects his woman.” Yes. This is the Gerard Butler I’d hoped he’d be.The kind of gentleman that, after watching 300 for the thousandth time in a row, you’re glad to find out mirrors the principled integrity of King Leonidas in real life. Spend a day under Butler’s notorious charm and you’ll find yourself believing that magic awaits around every corner.
