Gerard James Butler (born November 13, 1969) is a Scottish-born actor who's lately gotten a thing for doing Woobie characters, not that [[MadeOfIron there's]] [[WalkingShirtlessScene anything]] [[FanService wrong]] [[IronWoobie with that]]. He's been in ''Film/TheUglyTruth'', ''Literature/PSILoveYou'', ''Film/LawAbidingCitizen'', ''Film/{{Gamer}}'', ''Film/ThreeHundred'', ''Film/ThePhantomOfTheOpera2004'', ''Film/{{Timeline}}'', ''Film/{{Dracula 2000}}'', ''Film/ReignOfFire'' and many more. Butler is something of a "2000s action hero", in the vein of Creator/JasonStatham and the like. However, he has also proven himself as a romantic lead, and was the lead in a musical too.

* DyeingForYourArt: He bulked up on his own for ''Film/ThreeHundred'', refuting claims that he was wearing a bodysuit or enhanced with CGI but developed a painkiller addiction due to how grueling the training regime was. He also trained to get in good shape for ''Law Abiding Citizen'' and ''Gamer'' - though he is in shape normally.
* FakeAmerican: In ''Film/TheBountyHunter'', and general consensus is that his Scottish accent slipped through a lot.
* FakeIrish: Despite ''Film/PSILoveYou'' changing the setting from Ireland to America, Gerard's character was still Irish. He issued a public apology to the people of Ireland for doing such a bad job at the accent. Ironically his family has Irish ancestry too.
* FakeNationality: In addition to the above, he's played French, Greek and Viking characters but kept his natural accent.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Tends to play a lot of tough characters or {{Jerkass Woobie}}s. He's known for being one of the nicest actors around, very friendly to fans and always taking the time to get to know his co-stars and fellow crew members.
* MemeticBadass: Thanks to his role in ''Film/ThreeHundred'' and his iconic line [[PunctuatedForEmphasis "This. Is. Sparta!"]]
* StarMakingRole: Despite the divisive reception, ''Film/ThePhantomOfTheOpera2004'' brought him to international attention.
* TypeCasting: As some manner of ActionHero or JerkassWoobie.
