Emma Booth says Gerard Butler is easy on the eye and cheeky
EMMA Booth said there’s more than meets the eye of her co-star Gerard Butler.
The 31-year-old Aussie actor, who has forged a name for herself in Hollywood having worked with the likes of Jason Statham in 2013’s Parker, has confirmed that Butler not only has the good looks but the personality to match.
Booth told Confidential at the Sydney premiere of Game of Thrones last night that Butler is “lovely.”
“He’s pretty cute and it’s also his personality, he’s very cheeky,” Booth said.
Booth, who has been based in Los Angeles for two years, is working with Butler on the film Gods of Egypt which is shooting at Fox Studios in Sydney.
The fantasy film is set to be released in 2016 and also stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who Booth supported at the Thrones premiere, and Geoffrey Rush.
She said shooting for the film has been “phenomenal”.
“There’s a lot of blue screen, which has been interesting.”
“I am working with some of the most phenomenal actors in the world, and playing an incredible character,” she said.
The AACTA Award winner added that she “can’t breathe very well in her costume” with a laugh.
The film follows a thief and a god going on an adventure throughout Egypt.
Booth, who has starred in Underbelly: The Golden Mile in 2010, first made her mark on the acting scene after the Aussie film Clubland — released in 2007 — was showcased at Sundance film festival.
She has also played feminist Germaine Greer in the yet-to-be released film Hippie Hippie Shake with Sienna Miller in 2009.
