Gods of Egypt star Gerard Butler is hitting Sydney social scene hard
HE’S Sydney’s latest adopted son and Scottish movie hunk Gerard Butler is not wasting time making friends with the harbour city’s female population.
Taking advantage of his time in Australia as he prepares to shoot the $150 million epic Gods of Egypt, Butler has thrown himself into the city’s social scene, getting familiar with several women on various occasions — even leaving a party in Bondi last week with two girls in tow.
Kicking on from the Kym Ellery show at fashion week on Monday night, Butler and a small entourage made their way to a party at Da Orazio Pizza and Porchetta for sock label Scarce.
With models including Bambi Northwood-Blyth and Cheyenne Tozzi looking on, Butler hit the dancefloor and it was then that a handful of women caught his eye.
“He was having a ball ... dancing with a group and there were two women in particular he seemed fond of,” said one partygoer. “At the end of the night the three of them climbed into the back of a car together.”
Meanwhile Butler, who is staying in the mega Tamarama pad formerly owned by designer Wayne Cooper, was also seen getting cosy at the opening of Double Bay’s new nightclub Casablanca a fortnight ago.
He later turned heads at a performance of Madama Butterfly on Sydney Harbour.
However, its seems that no one particular lady has captured his heart — with the 44-year-old bachelor clearly happy to play the field following his split from model Madalina Ghenea last year.
