Gerard Butler ditches accent to score roles
By Paul Thornton


SCOTS movie stud Gerard Butler has revealed how he “hates himself” for ditching his accent to land Hollywood roles.

The 300 star – born in Glasgow – said to prevent slips he has begun speaking only in an American accent, despite slamming other stars for doing it.

Butler, 39, said: “I hated anyone from Scotland who lost their accent in the slightest.

“When Sheena Easton made it in America and suddenly stared talking in an accent I swore and threw shoes at her on the television.

“I’m not comfortable enough do American accents only when we film so I have to keep it up all the time.

“I really hate myself for doing that.”


Butler – who stars in the Ugly Truth with screen beauty Katherine Heigl – is currently filming a new flick with Jennifer Aniston in New York.

He was recently snapped dumping the former friends star in the boot of a car during on of the scenes for The Bounty.

The pair have denied reports linking them romantically.

I wish he'd just stop doing it altogether. His American accent is atrocious! Don't mean to offend anyone, but it is....just sayin'.

ditto, but you know, some people can't help it, and it shouldn't be such a big thing.

I've lived in a couple countries for short periods of time and I picked up nuances in the language, that have stayed with me. I can't help it. But I'm not going to hit myself over the head for it.

Gerry could stop hating himself (and he could do the American public a huge favor), if he would just STOP TRYING TO SPEAK WITH AN AMERICAN ACCENT!!!!
He sucks at it and it makes his mouth look ridiculous.

Problem solved and everyone is happy.

Pardon me but I have to laugh at someone who is quoted as saying that as soon as they land in Glasgow they go to an American franchise 'Starbucks' to buy a coffee and get their accent back .....


What the heck!! Wouldn't going back more often help with accent maintenance?
