Gerard Butler: I Used to Be Out of Control

Before Gerard Butler became a Hollywood heartthrob, he was "insane," as he puts it.

The 'Law Abiding Citizen' star left behind his job as an attorney to pursue acting, which turned out for the best, but he admits he wasn't in the right state of mind when he made that decision.

He told the December issue of Britain's Men's Health magazine: "You have to understand that I was completely out of control. If I hadn't been so lost and insane, I'd still be a lawyer. I said to myself, I'm aiming for the stars. I'll worry about the details later."

Butler admits he made the decision when he had reached the lowest point in his life, but he's absolutely overjoyed with his decision now. He said: "That was the worst day of my life, now it's the best."

He added: "The universe conspires. Once you decide to do something, the universe starts to help you. There are a lot of people who are really talented, and I can see they're not going to make it because they don't work hard enough."

We couldn't be happier with their decision either Gerry. Who would be our official Hollyscoop Heartthrob if we didn't have you?
