Gerard Butler goes “crazy” when he has to diet.
The Ugly Truth actor hates losing weight for roles because he has to give up all the calorific foods he enjoys like cakes and french fries.
“I want to eat my potatoes and french fries and sponge cakes,” said Butler, who had to slim down for his shirtless scenes in new film Law Abiding Citizen.
“When I play a role like this, I can’t have my carbs and it makes me crazy!”
Meanwhile, Gerard has praised the parenting skills of his Ugly Truth costar and friend Katherine Heigl, who adopted a special needs baby named Naleigh from Korea earlier this month.
“She will be an amazing mother. She’s incredibly responsible, smart and loving. This is a huge deal for her, and she’s going to take to it like a duck to water,” he said.
“She mothered me. Anytime I was feeling under the weather or was having a hard day, that’s when she was amazing. She would always come and check on me. I think she’s naturally a caretaker in the best way.”
Butler, 39, recently declared his love for his The Bounty costar Jennifer Aniston – and set the record straight on reports he’s dating the actress.
“I love her to death,” he said. “She’s the coolest and she’s become a great friend, but there’s nothing going on. And if there was, I’d be happy to say it!”
