HUNKY Hollywood star Gerard Butler has revealed he nearly lost his looks during a drunken prank.
The 300 actor smashed a wine glass into his face, which left him covered in blood and needing stitches in a gaping wound.
The Paisley-bred star botched his boozy party piece while he was studying law in Glasgow.
Gerard, 37, said: "One of the things we would do as lawyers at the Halloween ceilidh was drink a glass of wine and smash it off our heads.
"I always had to go that bit further. I would line up five glasses then smash them off my head.
"One night I was so drunk I stuck it in my nose.
"It bled for six hours."
Gerard says he has since kicked his booze habit and added: "The smoking is my next battle but we're born to be set these challenges."
