GB.Net Note: The information about the Glasgow Convention is incorrect. The convention was held on January 21, 2006, not in March 2006.

Scottish heartthrob Gerard Butler is amazed his fans stage conventions to celebrate his budding career because he can't understand why anyone would be so interested in him. Devotees of the Phantom Of The Opera star staged the first Gerard Butler convention in Glasgow, Scotland, last month, with over 200 people congregating to share their enthusiasm.

And more gatherings are planned in Colorado and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Bemused Butler says, "I heard about it and said, 'Is this a joke? Why would they do it?' What's amazing is that these fans have made friends with each other ... apparently they're having two more conventions this year. I just kind of got to go with it and say, 'Well, enjoy yourselves.'"
