He's practically a local! Gerard Butler bonds with his buddies in Bondi as he takes a break from filming Gods of Egypt
He's in town filming $150 million fantasy flick Gods of Egypt but Hollywood A-lister Gerard Butler proved he's just like one of us as he enjoyed a low-key Sunday with friends.
The 44-year-old Scottish stud went on a cafe crawl around Sydney's famed suburb Bondi, close to where he is reported to be staying.
He visited not one but two neighbourhood joints - Cafe Bondi and Le Paris-Go, both hangouts within sprinting distance of each other.
The actor, who gave up drinking a couple of years ago, was seen sipping a pink coloured fruit juice, while the wine bottles on the table seemed to indicate his friends were enjoying a stronger beverage.
Attempting to hide his bushel under a baseball cap the bearded hunk looked like a true Bondi local dressed down in a simple navy blue T-shirt..
Meanwhile his pals looked equally casual in hoodies and jeans as they sat street side enjoying a burst of autumnal sunshine at the popular neighbourhood joints.
The bachelor, who split from model Madalina Ghenea last year, is said to be staying around the corner at the Tamarama man pad formerly owned by designer Wayne Cooper, as reported by news.com.au.
Chilling out: The 44-year-old actor went to two local hot spots Cafe Bondi and Le Paris-Go
Popular man: The actor is currently filming $150 million epic Gods of Egypt but has been making time to enjoy the local hot spots - and the view
The down to earth star has been making the most of his time in his newly adopted country.
He's been spotted out and about on the local social scene, attending the opening of Double Bay’s new nightclub Casablanca, at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week's shows and after parties and enjoying a performance of Madame Butterfly.
He's also been hitting the famous sands of Bondi, perhaps getting in character for when he takes on the role of Bodhi later this year in a controversial remake of the surfing classic Point Break.
Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 cult favourite is set to be remade with Gerard taking the lead role alongside Aussie actor Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah and Ray Winstone potentially playing Gary Busey's character FBI agent Angelo Pappas, as reported by Variety.
Before that though he'll be wrapping filming of the big budget Gods of Egypt in which he stars alongside Aussie newcomer Brenton Thwaites, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Geoffrey Rush, which is slated for release in February 2016.
Gerard takes on the role of Set, a god of desert storms and foreigners in ancient Egypt, in the film which is being directed by I, Robot's Alex Proyas.
