Christmas with Gerard Butler!

He's the face of the new Boss Bottled campaign and one of Ahlan!'s favourite (read hottest) actors of all time. So luckily for us then that we got to have an exclusive chat with the Scottish stunner about his Christmas and New Year plans this season. We're hoping it involves us and a lot of mistletoe...


You’re Scottish – do you go home for Christmas?

I almost always go home for either Christmas or New Year. A couple of times actually I’ve been skiing instead but I always make it home for one of the two. The year was actually the first year I didn’t for 14 years because I had to stay and get four procedures done, all from injuries in movies. But on Christmas Day I did spend literally three hours on the phone from my home in LA with every member of my family, one at a time.

So would you say you enjoy all the traditions that come with Christmas?

Yes it’s quite traditional; the whole family get together. There’s normally about 12-15 of us and we have a big Christmas dinner at my mother’s house so everyone comes up to the Highlands of Scotland. It’s my favourite part of the year; it’s the time that the whole clan come together. You celebrate each other and you catch up on everything. And I actually think Scotland is beautiful at Christmas – it’s cold but I’m in the Highlands so often it’s snowing; it’s very magical. And then the big Christmas dinner brings back so much of my childhood.


Describe your perfect Christmas Day?

When I was a kid we all used to go to my aunt May’s house. If somebody had said to me, “You’re not going to aunt May’s house this year,” I would have thrown a fit because I looked forward to that experience all year.

Do you remember your best ever Christmas present growing up?

It was probably a sled that my uncle made, a proper wooden one, but he made it with his own hands which always just amazed me. And he brought it to our house and I had so much fun in it. It just always meant so much more that he’d made it with his bare hands.

Would you say that you’re organised when buying Christmas presents, or do you leave it until the last minute?

Throughout the year if I see something that I think would be good or if someone drops a hint, like they often do, I’ll get it early. Other than that it’s normally a last minute dash, I often find myself at my mother’s house with her helping me wrap the last of the presents. Every year I say next year, I’m going to start earlier, but it never happens. And on maybe the two occasions that it has, in actual fact it’s fun, it’s good to be rid of that stress and know that it’s all in order.

Do you indulge over the Christmas period?

Whenever I go home I eat very well, but at Christmas it just gets ridiculous. We pig out and sit around and play games and watch a lot of TV and films, so I splurge there.

What scent reminds you of Christmas?

When you’re outside and it’s really fresh up in the Highlands and it’s snowing and it’s really cold. That’s the small that reminds me of Christmas because the time that I’m always home in the winter is at Christmas, so that feels very Christmassy.

Gerard Butler reveals Christmas plans exclusively to HELLO! Fashion

Hollywood actor Gerard Butler has garnered a large fan following due to his handsome looks and charming personality. It's been a hectic few weeks for the Scottish actor, who has been unveiled as the face of Hugo Boss' fragrance BOSS Bottled.

With Christmas fast approaching, the 45-year-old spoke exclusively to HELLO! Fashion and revealed what he will be doing this Christmas to wind down...

Gerard Butler is the ambassador of the new BOSS Bottled #Manoftoday Campaign

Do you spend your Christmas in Los Angeles or Scotland?

This Christmas was the first year in 13 years I hadn't made it home. But, I spent two and a half hours on the phone with all of those 15 people because they were all put on the phone one by one! Normally, I'm always home in Scotland for Christmas.

Describe your perfect Christmas Day.

When I was a kid, we always used to go to my Aunt May's house for Christmas. If somebody turned around to me and said, 'We aren’t going to your Aunt May's house this year', I would throw a fit, because I looked forward to that experience all year!

Do you indulge over the Christmas period?

Whenever I go home, I eat very well, but at Christmas, it just gets ridiculous. We all pig out, sit around, play games and watch a lot of TV and films. So yeah, I splurge over the festive season.

Gerard revealed that he prefers to head home to Scotland for Christmas

Do you celebrate Christmas in a traditional way?

We always try and have a traditional family get together. There are normally 12 to 15 of us, and we all just have Christmas lunch and dinner. We all get together at my Mum's house, so everyone comes up to the Highlands in Scotland.

Do you host Christmas parties?

I have done in the past, but when I go back to Scotland, it's always the family – they're the ones hosting me! A lot of my time is spent catching up with the few hundred relatives that I have spread out over the country.

Are you an organised Christmas Shopper?

Throughout the year if I see something and think, 'Oh, that would be good', I just get it early. Or, somebody drops a hint, which they often do. Something like, 'Oh my god, that little diamond ring' – my Mum will talk about that, and I'll get it ahead of time. Other than that it's normally a last minute Christmas shopping dash. I often find myself at my Mum's house and she's helping me wrap my last Christmas presents!

"I love the fragrance the second I put it on," said Gerard. "It’s the finishing touch."

What scent reminds you of Christmas?

When you're outside and it's really fresh up in the Highlands – it's snowing and it's cold. That's the smell that reminds me of Christmas. It's at that time of year that I'm always home in Scotland in the winter, so that feels very Christmassy.
