SCOTS actor Gerard Butler says he gets annoyed when people ask if he's the next James Bond.

The actor, touted for the role along with Rory McCann, said: 'I'm starting to get tired of hearing that but like what I always say, it's not true.'

Gerard, who stars in Phantom of the Opera, also admitted it was an ordeal getting into character for the role.

He said: 'It killed me. My least favourite part of this job. I've done prosthetics before and sometimes I think I'd prefer to be shot in head than go through them.

'Actually, get panicked knowing I'm going in to it.'
