Object of my obsession: Gerard James Butler – November 13, 1960
My favorite appearances: Timeline (Andre Marek), 300 (King Leonidas), RocknRolla (One Two), Law Abiding Citizen (Clyde Shelton)
Most people when you mention Gerard Butler tend to immediately think King Leonidas in 300. Me, I tend to think of him in One Two in RocknRolla. It’s not my second favorite role of his but I rather thinking of him as One Two than be on his “To Kill” list in Law Abiding Citizen. He’s very good as Clyde Shelton, very intense and a bit creepy. That’s what I like about Gerard, his flexibility; killer; warrior; con man; and romantic interest in movies I haven’t yet brought myself to seeing. Not mention he doesn’t seem afraid to make himself look a bit goofy.
Let’s be honest here, he’s a great actor of course, but he also has great eyes, a killer smile, and you couldn’t ignore the chest and abs in 300. On the big screen they were impossible to avoid. But this picture to the left, it’s my favorite of him. In fact it was this picture that launched an obsession of mine. I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to photos catching that little peek of midsection on various people. I’ve got about seventy photos so far but this one is still in my top three.
