|Subject: Gerard Butler Visits Good Morning America Thu Jul 23, 2009 2:03 pm|| |
The charming Gerard Butler visited “Good Morning America” in New York City this morning (July 23).
Finishing up some last minute promotions for his new movie, The Ugly Truth, which hits theaters tomorrow, the actor looked handsome in some grey pants and a sharp blue shirt.
And just how did Butler win over the casting directors for his new movie? He says for telling dirty jokes, admitting that if he hadn’t told his repulsive lines, he would probably still be stuck in mean and grumpy roles.
“One of the main reasons I ended up doing The Ugly Truth was that I was doing an action movie where I play very dark and brooding. At night, I would go to dinner with the guys from Lakeshore (Entertainment), and I would tell dirty jokes and be vulgar, and they kept going, ‘You should do The Ugly Truth.’ I had never read the script and, finally, I read it and I went, ‘Okay, I get it.’”
The Scottish actor also spilled his guilty pleasure-late-nights to the fridge.
“My late-night pigging-out binges,” he said of his worst habits. I went to my fridge the other day and was so angry there was no bread.”
But it looks like the 39-year-old has people looking out for him. “I called my assistant and said, ‘What happened to the bread?’ “She said, ‘Your trainer told me to take it!’”
