Butler has said that Ice­land is one of their favo­rite places. "Th­ere's somet­hing about Ice­land - hards­hip. Th­ere is somet­hing very prim­iti­ve in the en­vironment, somet­hing unexplained that af­fects me when I'm th­ere. A man crosses the glaciers or stand­ing on a black sand beaches. Man stand­ing on top of a volcano, and it puts the steam out of the ground around you. Th­ere are hot springs; you see these things anywh­ere else. And the people are very spi­ritually oriented, "said Butler in 2010

Gerard Butler was seen at Kaffibarinn

Scottish actor Gerard Butler is in this country. Seen him in the city center at night where he attended include the club café. according to the Mbl.is .

Butler has starred in films such as 300 and Beowulf. It should come as no surprise that he is making a stop here on their way to the sea but was recently present in London. Namely Butler has said that Iceland is one of their favorite places:

   There's something about Iceland - hardship. There is something very primitive in the environment, something unexplained that affects me when I'm there. A man crosses the glaciers or standing on a black sand beaches. Man standing on top of a volcano, and it puts the steam out of the ground around you. There are hot springs; you see these things anywhere else. And the people are very spiritually minded.

Then there is the famous story of when he was playing in Beowulf and asked to drawn Ágústsson, Minister of Agriculture, on a sandwich with ham and cheese .

"Out came a man in a suit and tie and I felt almost certain that this was the hotel manager. I hoisted myself up to him and asked if he could get me something to eat, it could be anything, just a sandwich with ham and cheese. I was dying of hunger, I could have torgað whole horse, "Butler said in an interview on the subject which he calls one of the embarrassing moments of his life.

Butler says that the producers of the film have immediately come to talk to him and informed him that since he had been asking the Minister of Agriculture of the country's food.

Gerard Butler’s Favorite Mistake: Embarrassment in Iceland
By Gerard Butler
Filed: 12/3/12 at 12:00 AM | Updated: 12/7/12 at 1:35 AM

I’m a dude with ADD. I get caught up in the moment. For instance, I once wore a kilt and exposed myself to the congregation at my sister’s wedding. My mum tried to motion for me to push my legs together, but I thought she was telling me to pray. I was away in another world. I wasn’t thinking. Meanwhile, 300 people were looking right up my jacksy.

But that’s not even the most embarrassing thing to happen to me. A lot of my life lessons have come out of sillier things. Another funny moment happened in 2005 when I was playing a Viking in the very low-budget indie movie Beowulf & Grendel. We filmed in this little Icelandic town called Höfn that was right on the edge of a glacier. The weather was awful. We had hurricanes, torrential rains, and 
it was freezing. I was in every scene and had to stand on top 
of these glaciers or be out in the Icelandic sea.

The tiny 10-bedroom hotel that we were staying at was on the outskirts of town. They had a restaurant that, as far as I was concerned, never seemed to be open. We were out filming from six in the morning till at least eight in the evening. And when I came home at the end of every shoot I was famished.

I thought, Here we are making movies—this is not the way it’s supposed to be. But I dealt with it. And a few days later, I heard there was a conference in the hotel. So I thought the restaurant might finally be open. We didn’t have a proper lunch that day. I hadn’t eaten in nine hours. When I got home I could have eaten a horse.

I saw a lady standing outside the restaurant and asked, “Is there any way we can get some food? Anything?!” She said it was closed. I begged: “Something! Just let me grab something. I swear to God I’m going to die here.”

Then out of the door comes this man in a suit and a tie. I run over to him thinking that he’s the manager of the hotel and say, “Please, listen, is there any way you can open this restaurant or just give me something? Can I just have a ham-and-cheese sandwich?”

He looks at me deadpan. Perturbed. He said he didn’t work there and left.

When I turned around, the producer of the movie was shocked, her head in her hands. In my desperation I had begged Iceland’s minister of agriculture for a ham-and-cheese sandwich.

If you’re ever going to a small country, any country, it’s probably good to get some intel on the local politicians. Knowing who is in the local mafia, or mob, or Yakuza can help avoid scenarios like mine. Now that I’m a big star, I just make sure that wherever I’m about to go they build a full-size hotel properly equipped with 24-hour restaurants, diners, and even casinos. Not really. If anything, it taught me some common sense.
