Gerard Butler may not be one of the next celebrity contestants on Dancing With the Stars, but he did get to glide across the dance floor with the show’s Julianne Hough. Butler took lessons from Hough while preparing to get his groove on alongside Katherine Heigl for a scene in their new romantic comedy The Ugly Truth.

“I took a few lessons because I had no idea what I was doing,” says Butler, an action star who felt he had two left feet when it came to dancing. “She did me a big favor there,” he adds, a favor he was able to call in because some of her fellow dancers were once Butler’s neighbors. “I knew a bunch of the guys from Dancing With the Stars because I used to live in the same building as them.”

Heigl might also make an ideal candidate for DWTS, says Butler. “This lady was just on it and she had it right away,” he says. “That’s why it came alive because to be honest, if I was dancing with somebody who wasn’t that great, it would have been a disaster. Katie was on it and I wasn’t.”
