Gerard Butler steps out for some press appearances while promoting his new movie Hunter Killer on Monday (October 22) in New York City.
The 48-year-old actor suited up for interviews at Fox News and SiriusXM that morning and he later changed into a casual outfit for the Build Series.
In an interview with Uproxx, Gerard opened up about why he loves doing action movies.
“They’re fun and they pay well! We always try our best but sometimes you make a movie and you go, okay, that really didn’t work. But when it works, honestly, there is nothing better. There is nothing better than working into a room and feeling the excitement of somebody who has watched a 300 or a Hunter Killer. Because there are always high stakes and there are always big ideas. Like Olympus has Fallen,” he said.
Gerard added, “You make these movies with original content, original ideas. Not some intellectual property and you’re therefore dangling a little more, you know? You could fall on your ass. So, therefore, when it works, it’s so exciting because of those high stakes. When they work are incredibly exciting, thrilling, fun. And, in some ways, inspiring in that kind of way that humans want to go and be entertained and come out an go, ‘Yeah, I want to be more courageous.’ Or, ‘I want to stand up for myself.’ Or, ‘I want to find something that’s worth sacrificing for.’ So, that’s ultimately one of the reasons why I like making these big movies.”
