GERARD Butler has broken the billion dollar barrier at the US box office.
The former lawyer has become one of the most bankable faces in Hollywood in just 20 films.

The 40-year-old joins a select list of Scottish stars whose films have earned more than $1billion - pounds 637million - in the US.

They also include Ewan McGregor and Sean Connery. But critics have warned that Butler's success could fade as quickly as it arrives.

Jessica Barnes of website Cinematical, said: "Even though his celebrity quotient is rising, the quality of his movies isn't and that's a dangerous combination.

"Butler has a natural charm which should make him the perfect specimen for leading man status but you wouldn't know it from his career choices.

"He isn't the first to fall victim to over-exposure and bad decisions but audiences are a fickle sort who can turn on you at the drop of a dime. " Website BoxOffice Mojo compiled box office takings for 20 films in which the actor had taken lead orsignificant roles.

Overall, his films took pounds 637million at the US box office.

This doesn't surprise me at all. Wasn't 300 responsible for about half of that (close to $500 million)? It's a nice accomplishment.

Something like that. I thought it hit 700 mil. Maybe that was world wide.
