Check out the video intervie at the link. Interesting comment by Gerry about Vicodin. He seems to know he slipped and shouldn't have said it. Kind of makes you wonder if he was taking some, considering he's a recovering addict?

Was it something he said? Gerard Butler pretends to punch co-star Aaron Eckhart at London premiere of Olympus Has FallenBy Fay Strang

He enjoys a friendly relationship with Aaron Eckhart’s character - the president – in their film Olympus Has Fallen.
But it seems that when it came to the London premiere of their action thriller, Gerard Butler wanted to create a little drama.
The Scottish actor was seen play fighting with his co-star and pretending to throw a few punches as they posed up together on Wednesday evening.

The 43-year-old actor, who plays a secret service agent in the film, looked delighted to be back on British soil to showcase his film.

Showing off his usual handsome good looks, he looked particularly slim line in a grey suit, with white shirt and thin grey tie.
Aaron, who plays President Benjamin Asher, looked equally as handsome in his blue suit.

The famous actors seemed to be having plenty of fun as they posed together on the red carpet after braving the cold outside to greet their fans.

Gerard and Aaron definitely brought the A-list aspect to the event, as unfortunately it was mainly reality TV stars who walked the red carpet alongside them.

And it seems a lot of the guests were hell bent on bagging a bit of Butler judging by their attire.

Olympus Has Fallen stars Gerard as disgraced Secret Service agent Mike Banning, who finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack.
Using his inside knowledge, Banning works with national security to rescue the President from his kidnappers.

Speaking about his film at BFI Imax in London, Butler joked that he didn't think the film would have been so exciting if it were set in London, he said: 'To me you watch this universally, you don’t have to be American. It’s an attack on the free world. It could just as easily be Downing Street, it could be anywhere.'

He chuckled: 'But it would be quite interesting to see... I don’t know how many Secret Service they have... There’s like 80 Secret Service in the White House. I can just imagine Downing Street with two coppers running out with their batons...
'I shouldn’t say that, I’m sure it’s way more protected than that. Maybe that’ll be our next movie - Downing Street Has Fallen!'

The 43-year-old action star - who was also a producer on the film - was left battered and bruised by the stunt scenes, so much so he worried he had seriously damaged his arm.

Butler revealed: 'I broke two little bones in my neck. My arm turned black from getting punched in my arm for literally two days. It looked like a dead person’s arm, it was weird.
'I hurt my throat, I don’t even know how that happened. But you know what, that’s all part of it. You’re in it! And you come out feeling like you’re really in the White House fighting terrorists.'
Eckhart, 45, admitted that the role was one he had always dreamed of.


He confessed: 'It’s interesting as an actor playing a President, because every American kid grows up wanting to be a President.'
But he admitted it was frustrating not being in the centre of the action, as he spends much of the film chained up.
Eckhart said: 'You always want to hit somebody, you always want to be more proactive. I tried to use my mind more. But the challenge was to keep up that intensity while being chained up.'

Olympus Has Fallen was directed by Training Day’s Antoine Fuqua and the ensemble cast also includes Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo and Dylan McDermott.
