I could've been a contender: Movie star Gerard Butler shows off his footballing skills at charity kickabout

He's usually seen looking dapper at red carpet events or wining and dining various beautiful women when he's not filming his next Hollywood blockbuster.
But on Friday Gerard Butler showed off his caring side as he took part in a Street League charity football 5-a-side training session in South London.
The 43-year-old found time to lend his support to the charity, which helps underprivileged youths by taking part in the kick around.

For his film: Gerard joined in the visit Street League charity training session whilst in the UK for new film Playing For Keeps
Dressed in the charity's tracksuit the actor looked a touch on the cold-side as he waited to start his game.

However once he slipped on his luminous green bib he really got into the spirit of the game and was seen running around the pitch.
At one point it looked like the actor may have scored as he was seen pumping his fists.


Role play: In his new film Gerard plays a retired football coach who coaches his son's football team

The Scottish star seemed to get along with his team mates and was seen enjoying a laugh or two with them.

Gerard is currently in the UK to promote his new filming Playing For Keeps in which he stars as a retired football star.
On Thursday evening the actor attended a special screening at the Apollo Piccadilly Circus.

Keeping warm: Gerard kept warm on the pitch by jumping up and down before he started his 5-a-side game

Dressed in a slim-fit grey suit with plum coloured tie, he looked every inch the Hollywood star.
Following the screening, he was spotted leaving popular restaurant Lou Lou's in Mayfair on his own.
In the film, which is directed by Gabriele Muccino, Gerard's character tries to rebuild his relationship with his son and ex-wife by coaching the boy's football team, although he proves irresistible to the other mums.

It's thought they have been dating for around seven months.

With belt loops?

It looks like he is also wearing a short sleeved shirt/tshirt with a suede or wool-looking vest in the group pic and video.

Seriously, who picks out his clothes? So bizarre.

Gerard Butler: Soccer Fun in London

Taking some time off of his busy schedule, Gerard Butler showed up the Street League charity training session in Kennington Park, London, England today (December 14).

The “PS I Love You” hunk looked to be enjoying himself as he ran around on the South London pitch and checked out the 5-a-side action.

Butler has long been a supporter of the Street League charity, which helps disadvantaged youth and juvenile offenders redirect their energy into playing the sport.

Meanwhile, Gerard’s latest film “Playing for Keeps” has performed quite poorly at the box office, giving him yet another flop to his credit.

Enjoy the pictures of Gerard Butler at a Street League charity event for 'Playing For Keeps' at Kennington Park in London, England (December 14).

Did you get out the magnifying glass, Dallas? Suspect

I only gave his pants a cursory glance; didn't see belt tabs. Remember, it's chilly in London at the moment. Not like the abnormal winter in Texas.
