Gerard Butler admits he’s a bit of a technophobe.

The Scottish actor — who can currently be seen starring opposite Katherine Heigl in new movie The Ugly Truth — says he is clueless when it comes to gaming and goes out of his way to avoid PlayStations and Wiis.

“I’m no good at all that stuff,” he said. “I now appreciate the incredible work that goes into these things and the skill people have to play them but I’m not too good at technology.

“A mobile phone is enough for me to cope with.”

Butler — who is currently being linked to his The Bounty costar Jennifer Aniston — recently revealed that he loves having a woman in his life.

“It’s kind of amazing to be overpowered and overawed by somebody and to feel that excitement come back over you and to take yourself out of your own head — because I live very much in my own head and I don’t always like that — that somebody else is now playing such a big part in your mind and your psyche,” he said.

“But I also have big reservations there and a lot of fear in that respect. It’s tough to deal with that vulnerability because I still have the element of ‘I can’t do this! I can do this on my own! I’m alright!’

“And then suddenly, somebody holds this power over you.”
