Gerard Butler Explains Why He Loves Doing Action Movies

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.”

Gerard Butler Cancels Press Trip to Saudi Arabia Following Journalist's Disappearance

Gerard Butler has canceled his upcoming Hunter Killer press trip to Saudi Arabia.

The 48-year-old actor made the announcement during a news conference on Monday afternoon (October 15) at the Pentagon in Washington D.C.

Gerard was scheduled to travel to the country and intended to meet with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, but changed his plans in light of journalist Jamal Khashoggi‘s disappearance.

Jamal, self-exiled Saudi journalist who had been living in the U.S., was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Turkey on October 2nd.

“It didn’t feel like a good time to be getting involved in that. It would have felt incredibly insensitive to go to Saudi Arabia,” Gerard said during the press conference.
