PostSubject: Gerard Aims To Go Spiritual With NY's Resolution   Wed Dec 26, 2012 5:28 pm

Gerard Butler says his New Year resolution for 2013 is to take a spiritual and more introspective approach to life.

It was a near-death experience that prompted the 43-year-old to re-evaluate his existence.

Butler said: "Next year my resolution is to embark on a lot of internal, more spiritual things, and explore that side of my life."
After he almost died in a surfing accident in 2011 while filming Chasing Mavericks, the Scottish-born actor says he now has a different perspective.

Gerard, who played the role of champion surfer Rick 'Frosty' Henson, was hit by a freak wave at Maverick's, a surfing spot south of San Fransisco, and trapped underwater as a succession of large waves rolled over him.

He was eventually pulled onto a jet ski and taken to a nearby hospital.

Butler said: "That accident made me reassess a lot of stuff. On the positive side, it made me realise you live from moment to moment.

"I've had a few close calls but that was probably the closest. So now I regard life as having different chapters, and it's about enjoying each one and that's my focus for 2013."

Butler will next be seen in romantic comedy Playing For Keeps, released on January 1, 2013 and also starring Jessica Biel.
