Gerard Butler’s recent weight loss really surprised a lot of people, but the handsome actor says he’s just fine. In fact, Butler said that his body was normally around this slim but that he just bulks up often. He also said the weight loss was for art sake since he’s filming for a new movie that required him to have a slimmer trim. See another photo of the skinnier Gerard here.
Butler said, “If I wear a long shirt, everyone says ‘Oh my God, he lost so much weight!’ But this is how I look. I just used to be a lot bigger. But now I’m surfing. I’m doing a surf movie so I have to slim down. I don’t know … maybe I’m sick or something!”
The quirky actor went on to poke fun at how he lost the weight. Butler said, “I ate my last meal in October and I run about 40 miles a day. I’m joking. It’s just doing a lot of cardio and extremely watching what I eat. I stopped lifting big weights and I’m doing yoga. It’s not hard to be in shape … it’s hard to be in really good shape. I generally train for a role and give everything to that, and then you stop and then you do it again.”
A successful actor has to be able to change his body shape into any size for any role. It is clear that Gerard Butler has beautifully mastered that ability. Even with his weight loss, he is still him. Butler is one of those handsome actors whose career wouldn’t suffer if he were type cast because he’s so good-looking, he will always be employed.
