Life’s a beach for Gerard Butler


Life’s a beach for surfing enthusiast Gerard Butler as the Hollywood hunk headed over to Malibu beach to watch surfing ace Laird Hamilton.

The PS I Love You Star is usually the one showing off his skills in the water but this time the 44 year-old looked happy to take a back seat and watch someone else ride the waves.

Before making time for his fans the Scottish star looked so impressed with the surfer’s skills that he whipped out his own camera to take a few snaps. No doubt fans of the movie star are hoping that next time it will be Mr. Butler on the board.

Gerard Butler watches surfers take on 30ft waves in Malibu before witnessing famed surfer Laird Hamilton rescue a man's life


Gerard Butler portrayed a surf legend in the 2011 movie Chasing Mavericks, where he learned how to ride the big waves.

And on Wednesday, the Scottish actor reminisced about his former role as he watched surfers take on massive waves at Surfrider Beach in Malibu, California.

The 44-year-old stood beachside taking pictures of those who challenged the nearly 30ft swells before witnessing Laird Hamilton save a man from drowning.

Acting as spectator for the day, Gerard was dressed casually in a navy T-shirt, denim jeans and black sneakers.

He styled his outfit with multiple bracelets on his left wrist and shielded his eyes from the sun with black aviator sunglasses.

The star was one of many witnesses who watched as famed surfer Laird rescued a man who was caught fighting for his life in historically powerful waves off the Malibu coast that same day.

A day earlier on Tuesday, a surfer died after being pulled from the water but it was not clear whether the death was related to the surf or a medical condition.

Many thrill-seeking surfriders visited the Southern California beaches to experience the large waves kicked up by Hurricane Marie in the Pacific Ocean about 800 miles west of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula.

Marie will likely weaken to tropical storm levels, but life-threatening water conditions were expected to continue through Thursday.

Gerard is familiar with terrifying surf conditions as he risked his own life in the ocean when he portrayed the character of Frosty Hesson in the film Chasing Mavericks.

He was caught in what's called a two-wave hold down, which is where one wave knocks the person too deep to get to the surface before another wave hits.

The Scot told Good Morning America back in 2012 that he had 'visceral' flashbacks during the accident and his mind ended up in a place where he 'didn't want it to be.'

'It was like a Tsunami coming in and I was down and I just didn't come back up really,' the actor recalled to GMA's Lara Spencer.

'I was down for that wave and I was down for a long time just turning turning and then the next wave came over and I began to think 'Wow, I'm going to die making a movie.'

Chasing Mavericks tells the true story of teenager Jay Moriarty and his quest to surf America's most  dangerous waves in Santa Cruz.

Gerard produced the film and starred in it, playing a local legend who took the teen under his wing and taught him to surf the waves.

'This film explained to me how hard it is to become a surfer, how dangerous it actually is, how exciting it is,' he added.

'It was a pretty close call,' the Scot revealed to UK talk show host Graham Norton in 2012.

He elaborated: 'Somebody described Mavericks the other day as liquid hell because the water is very dark and very heavy and there's just a lot of water there and it's a much deeper surf spot than most places so it takes you further down - you can go down 25 to 30 feet.'
