Gerard Butler graces the cover of Architectural Digest


Gerry is on the May 2010 issue of Architectural Digest and you can find the entire cover story in the issue which is on newsstands now.
Thirteen-foot-tall mahogany doors with a knocker that could summon the dead. A ceiling fresco depicting the rape of Ganymede. Plaster walls chipped and mottled with age, massive columns supporting limestone lions, crystal chandeliers casting spidery shadows…. Medieval castle? Ancestral manor house? Try a two-story loft in the heart of New York’s ultratrendy Chelsea district. The doors alone are remarkable enough to stop the most jaded Manhattanite in his tracks: Who in the world lives here?

Why, King Leonidas of Sparta, who else? The place starts to make a little more sense when one considers that its owner is the actor Gerard Butler, and Gerard Butler is known for channeling such larger-than-life figures as the Spartan king, Attila the Hun, Dracula, the Phantom of the Opera and Beowulf. “I wanted something elegant and gorgeous and at the same time rather masculine and raw,” the actor declares, his Glasgow burr somehow enhancing the description. “I guess I would describe the apartment as bohemian old-world rustic ch√Ęteau with a taste of baroque.” [Peter Haldeman]

  1. What a man. whatever he is he has the bucks to decortate any way he wants too.I would gladly clean the place for him just to be where he hangs out. I'm fascinated by his beautiful face. There is no one more interesting to look at on the screen than Gerard Butler. That's what makes him a star.None of the other actors can compare.I'm completely captivated by him.

  2. I agree he is the best thing that ever happened to the movies.He is the only star,the rest can stand aside and wait.His mother must be so proud of him. He is good to her too. That makes me think that he is a good man besides a good looker. He is very versatile too. Plays everything. He is in the right profession.
