Rehab is one of those things that seemingly goes hand-in-hand with fame. Doesn't it seem like famous people are in and out of it constantly?
When a celebrity truly embraces it though, that's when amazing things happen — and it even takes hold of their craft and produces amazing results. For Gerard Butler, there is nothing he has taken more seriously:
"Maybe a stronger person wouldn't have needed to go.When you hear the word rehab, you think, ‘He's a mess, he's f–ked up.' But I'm glad I did it. I've made a s–tload of wrong decisions in my life. But I know I've made some right ones as well."
He didn't go to rehab for what you think
Gerard Butler was always in great shape, but it was the movie 300 that lead him to his best body EVER!
He played a Spartan warrior, and so to play the role properly, he had to train like a Spartan.
The workout would be simple and brutal. To us it just seems simply brutal. LOLz!
This workout can build muscle, increase endurance and burn serious fat… all at the same time!
Men's Health detailed the workout, which goes as follows:
Both Will Ferrell and chef Gordon Ramsay got hurt during a charity soccer game, called Soccer Aid!
If you've ever wondered what Gerard Butler does in his off-time, the answer is, "intensely studies Laker cheerleaders."
The pics are absolutely ABSURD! We're convinced that Gerard Butler is
A few of Hollywood's biggest names left the Staples Center with a big frown on their faces Sunday.
The Lakers lost to their visiting opponents, the Memphis Grizzlies, with a final score of 102-96.
Gerard Butler cringed and Ashton Kutcher could barely watch as their team took a beating, while David Beckham couldn't even force a smile (even with the Lakers girls dancing just a few feet away).
Tough loss, but better luck next time, guys!

Don't worry, fans! Just because Gerard was there doesn't mean that he slipped off the wagon!
After a stint in rehab, Gerard Butler was spotted at Beacher's Madhouse — at 1:00am!
He was seen hitting up the place incognito, but his defenses were weak: a hat and a leather jacket. He was noticed immediately, especially by the ladies!
Sticking to just bottled water, he was seen schmoozing with Jeff Beacher — the bulesque show's impresario. They looked like good friends!
But the ladies just wouldn't quit, and some girl even tried to practically dance on top of him. He wasn't having it and bounced just a half hour after he got there!
We're proud of you for sticking to water, Gerard!
Self control is seksi!!

Gerard Bulter's drinking days are long gone but back then, he was on the road to destruction!
The actor recently opened up about his hardcore drinking in his younger years and how drinking nearly cost him everything.
Including his life!
Gerard states that he drank so much, it cost him his lawyer gig at 22. He also says he was on a "death wish" and "didn't care if he died in his sleep."
So what did he do? He quit drinking, moved to London and got his first acting job through an old gal pal. With no training in acting!
What an inspiration! Gerard talks about his life without the bottle:
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. I don’t miss it. Now it’s as if I never had a drink in my life. At one point, I could never have conceived going out and not drinking but, as time goes on, you lose the urge and the insecurity that often makes people drink in the first place.
And he still has a way with the ladies without booze! He's shacked up with Jennifer Aniston, Ashley Greene and Brandi Glanville, who he "doesn't" know apparently!
We're proud of you, Gerard! Keep truckin' on the road of sobriety!
