Gerard Butler For Men's Journal

Gerard Butler Covers Men's Journal November 2012.

A few highlights from his interview.
On the effects of rehab
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**t load of wrong decisions in my life. But I know I've made some right ones as well.
On his current sober status
I haven't had a drink in 15 years.
On his pill addiction
I was actually taking a minimal amount (of pills) when I went in. It was more about becoming a mental warrior and not letting pain bother you. The (instructor) would say, 'I don't want to hear about your f**king MRIs or your f**king X-rays... Let's learn how to say to the pain, 'F**k you'... They really do rip you apart... You get rid of a bunch of s**t, realize a bunch more s**t, and you make a plan.
