Gerard Butler opens up about his past drinking issues 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 “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.
