Actor Gerard Butler, whose name has appeared in the list of “100 Sexiest Stars in Film History” by Empire Magazine in 2009, was living proof that there is life after alcohol.
The Scottish born actor of such films as Shooters (2000), the war drama Harrison´s Flowers (2000) and as Angelina Jolie´s hunky love interest in the sequel of Lara Croft´s Tomb Raider and in the more recent “PS, I love you” with Hilary Swank and 300, turned heads at Cannes as he sipped on soft drinks at the champagne flowing star-studded event. He kept to his own form of a fizzy drink thanks to a retro SodaStream machine at the event.
He arrived at the event looking dapper and very handsome in a grey suit teamed with a white shirt and a light grey tie wearing his well-known Gerard Butler smile. The star who had until recently been in rehab for treatment of addiction to prescription painkillers looked for fun in the forms of Former Victoria Secret´s model Karolina Kurkova
, who looked stunning in a backless black dress and Petra Nemcova
who showed off her gorgeous figure in a red gown that had a plunging neckline from here to there.
The Hollywood heartthrob was seen cosying up to Nemcova at the IWC Annual Filmmakers Dinner held at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden Roc in Antibes and seen to be having a fun-filled night sans alcohol.
Who needs alcohol when you have some of the world´s most beautiful women clamouring around you? Not Gerard Butler, he left the event with one of the ladies on his arm and with a grin plastered on his face. It looked like it was going to be a good night for Gerard.
