RocknRolla actor Gerard Butler recently admitted to USA Today: “If you drank like I did (in the past) you’d go ‘No, probably best not to’. Once you’ve been introduced to the art of social drinking you appreciate, ‘Well, this is relaxing.’ It gets you in the mood. But when you haven’t had a drink for a long time, you forget you ever had that. I was (also) a big smoker. I haven’t smoked in a long time.” The actor hasn’t drank in 15 years and is proud to be able to say that. However, he has some other dangerous pleasures to keep him going, such as surfing. The Scottish actor plays legendary surfer Frosty Hesson in his latest movie, “Chasing Mavericks.” Butler got pretty excited in the water: “The crazy thing is I got into trouble I few times during training with huge swells. I got caught by a massive wave, which grabbed me by the foot and kept beating me down. I remember getting out of the water thinking, ‘I can’t do this movie.’ … A few hours later, I was ready to get in the water again.” And speaking of getting in the water again, Butler is definitely not heart broken from his relation with Jennifer Anniston a few years back, as he’s been seen in intimate stances with Romanian model Madalina Ghenea. The two were spotted kissing under an umbrella in the rain, in a romantic scene.
