Gerard Butler opens up about his past drinking issues

HollywoodNews.com: Gerard Butler may seem to have it all going for him these days, but apparently that wasn’t exactly the case when he was younger.

Butler recently opened up about having a heavy drinking problem when he was younger which led to him not caring about what might happen to him, states RadarOnline.com. “I had gone from a 16-year-old who couldn’t wait to grasp life to a 22-year-old who didn’t care if he died in his sleep,” Butler revealed.

He also commented that he would just drink until he couldn’t remember anything: “One or two drinks was never enough for me. I was a foot-on-the-floor-all-the-way drinker, so it had to go.”

What do you think about him?

    I am a huge fan of Gerard Butler; kudos to him for kicking a bad habit, and maintaining his sobriety in the midst of all of the mixed influences “Hollywood” has to offer. He is brilliant’ and I wish him nothing but the best as he continues to pursue his movie making aspirations. Thanks for the opportunity to share.
