History

This site was the conception of a fan with a vision, who first noticed Gerard Butler in Dracula 2000 and subsequently decided he was an actor to watch for in the future. She approached a web designer friend, after much prodding and constant badgering that she needed to help her develop a website for Gerard.

The designer, knowing nothing about Gerard Butler, saw Attila on television, and thought, ok, what the heck…another website for a hot looking Scotsman, how much work could it be? Putting her research skills and resources to work, the designer did some investigating about this Scottish actor. The few articles there were at the time regarding Gerard described just WHO Gerard was as a person and that was the hook that inspired her to go ahead and do a website dedicated to the man and a design followed and became GerardButler.Net on February 10, 2001.

The visionary fan worked tirelessly that first year to secure an exclusive fan site interview with Gerard. An ambitious task and imagine our surprise when he said yes!! Another interview followed in mid-2004, prior to the release of Phantom of the Opera. We are honored that not only did he agree, but continues to be so giving and supportive of our efforts in the information we provide and our charity endeavors. We are eternally grateful and are honored to call him “friend”.
