He arrived without any sort of Escort.
But Gerard Butler may find he leaves with one after he jetted into Brazil on Tuesday to shoot a commercial for car giants Ford.
The Dracula 2000 beefcake looked in high spirits indeed as he sauntered through the arrival lounge in Sao Paulo.

And no wonder, for his bank balance is sure to get a welcome boost after he shoots scenes for the world's fifth largest car company.
Ladies man Gerry was looking great for his age in a pair of blue jeans and a baseball cap, and the patriot rounded off his look with a trendy tartan shirt.
The canny Scot seems to be taking advantage of having plenty of spare time on his hands at the moment by branching out into the lucrative world of advertising, and his arrival was met with much excitement in the Brazilian press.
It is not the first time Ford have used a Hollywood hotshot, as Matthew McConaughey has starred in much talked abut commercials promoting its luxury Lincoln division.
Time for a fiesta: The fun-loving star, who hails from glamorous Paisley in Renfrewshire, was surely looking forward to sampling the nightlife
Tartan special: The Scot showed his patriotic side by choosing this shirt as part of his Transit driver-esque ensemble
The Oscar-winner's philosophical musings as he drove around a deserted highway during the popular short helped it become one of the country's most talked about campaigns, with Ellen DeGeneres even using it as the target of a hilarious spoof.
But it seems Gerard will be taking part in a more modest campaign, as he is said to be climbing behind the wheel of a Ford Focus for his advert, which will be filmed over the next two days.
Leaving Los Angeles was surely a wrench however, for he has been spending lots of time with his girlfriend Morgan Brown in recent times.

Gerard has became almost as well known for his romantic exploits as for his acclaimed acting career, which features star turns in the likes of Machine Gun Preacher, Gamer and, arguably his high water mark, The Bounty Hunter.
In the past he has been romantically linked to the likes of famed beauties Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston and Naomi Campbell.
In addition, his most recent steady girlfriend prior to his love affair with Morgan was Romanian model Madalina Ghenea, who he dated away back in 2013.
And off he goes: No doubt Gerard could hardly wait to follow in Matthew McConaughey's footsteps
