Gerard Butler Recalled His Childhood Christmas

Christmas Day has always been a huge anti-climax for Scottish movie hunk Gerard Butler - he has always preferred the build up. The "300" star admits the holidays are very different now than they were when he was a poor kid growing up in Glasgow.

He recalls, "It was almost impossible to contain my excitement. I didn't come from a particularly wealthy family so anything that we got was so much more appreciated. My mum was a single mother and, with dad living in Canada, we really didn't get anything from him, but all the rest of the family was very close. I had a lot of aunts and uncles, great grand uncles and they would always make sure that we were alright."

He also added, "My uncle would build us a sled or we'd get these weird wonderful gifts, and I would always be thinking I would catch Santa coming down the chimney. Coming from a country where it gets cold and it snows, there's a real Christmassy feeling in Scotland. Then comes the day where you have to start getting the presents and it loses that magic suddenly and Christmas becomes a huge pain in the a**."

Slightly different version and wording in this article. Kind of makes you question the tone of what he said and why. They try to make it sound like he hates Christmas now or something. So stupid....
