Unless I have absolutely nothing to do I don't usually read really long interviews with celebrities. For the most part they are just drivel and they are so carefully quantized by attending publicists or weak editors that they just are not worth the effort. But, I had a couple of minutes today and so I thought I would at least look at the interview of Gerard Butler in Esquire. You never know when you will find a great quote or discover that he spent much of a year getting arrested in different parts of the US, while he was President of the Law Society back in Scotland.
Oh, and as of the date of the interview had not had sex with Jennifer Aniston so, you can mark that off his list. I get the feeling she is one of the few women he hasn't slept with though. The interview is great because it was done by a writer who was only told to go to Gerard's house and interview the guy. He had no idea who Gerard was and and even when Gerard told him, he still didn't know. It is an amazing interview simply because half of it is Gerard truly dumbfounded that someone doesn't know who he is or what movies he has been in. It is like one big, "Don't you know who I am" moment and realizing that in fact, not everyone does know who you are or particularly care. Gerard handled it well. I would like to have seen this trick done on someone who probably does care.
