Fangirl Friday – Gerard Butler

29 Mar

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.

    Have been a fan since spotting him in the mini series Attila as Attila The Hun in 2001. Also enjoyed him as Dracula in Dracula 2000, Dear Frankie as the Stranger, enjoyed him even more in Phantom of the Opera, 300 and of course RocknRolla. He’s not flexing his acting muscle as much as he used to…and most of his rom-com work is a shame to cinema….but such is the life an actor in the here and now. I really like the way his arms looks in this pic http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lenmh80xPv1qa0wj4o1_500.jpg Either way….he’s tasty.

    I saw Dracula 2000 in 2000 and don’t remember it. So need to see that again. And yes very nice arms in that picture. Good I can skip the rom-coms.
