Gerard Butler is a Scottish film actor and producer known for movies like Reign of Fire, 300, and Olympus Has Fallen.
Who is Gerard Butler?
Born Gerard James Butler on November 13, 1969, Gerard is a Scottish attorney-turned-actor and producer. While living in Scotland, Butler was a trainee lawyer in Edinburgh. However, Butler’s heart was not in it, and he floundered at his job.
After moving to London at the age of 25, Butler worked menial jobs before landing his first acting role at 27. Since that time, Butler has carved a name for himself as an action blockbuster superstar.
Gerard is most famous for his portrayal of King Leonidas in Zack Snyder’s 2008 historical fantasy film 300. He also portrays Secret Service agent Mike Banning in the … Has Fallen film series.
Gerard Butler Married? Who is His Wife?
At the time of this writing, Gerard Butler is not married. In fact, the 51-year-old has never married in his life. While he has remained a bachelor for most of his life, Gerard Butler has romanced his fair share of women in his life.
One of Gerard’s earliest documented relationships was with his childhood friend, who grew up to become a casting director in London. When Butler moved to London in his 20’s, he reconnected with the unnamed woman and became her assistant and romantic partner. She essentially helped Butler get a foot in through the doors of the film industry.
Furthermore, in his professional life, Butler dated several of his co-stars and peers, most of which could be just rumors. Most notably, Butler dated his The Bounty Hunter co-star Jennifer Aniston for a year circa 2009.
In late 2009, an onlooker tipped The Daily Mail that Butler locked lips with Freaky Friday actress Lindsay Lohan at a high-society party in Morocco. The anonymous tip also said that they were flirting with each other all night. At the end of the night, the couple reportedly adjourned in a golf buggy.
It is not clear whether that incident sparked Aniston and Butler’s breakup or if there was another reason, but they separated soon after.
Additionally, Butler also reportedly dated his 300‘s co-star Rosario Dawson throughout the filming of the movie. A year after they supposedly broke up, Butler began dating actress Cameron Diaz.
Furthermore, Butler also had a highly publicized romance and breakup with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville.
Other notable Hollywood actresses linked to Butler include Twilight actress Ashley Green and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre actress, and Justin Timberlake’s wife, Jessica Biel.
Not only his Hollywood peers but even models seem to be powerless against Butler’s Scottish charm. Some sources also claim that Butler dated the British model and entrepreneur Noami Campbell for a spell. Furthermore, Butler also dated the Romanian model Madalina Ghenea.
In May 2021, DailyMail.com reported that Butler had rekindled his relationship with the American real estate agent and interior designer Morgan Brown.
The pair got together for the second time following their most recent split in August 2020. However, they have been linked together as far back as 2014 when they were spotted together in Malibu, California. Butler’s reluctance to settle down caused their breakup in the first place.
