Gerard Butler Wants Us To Appreciate His Body

Gerard Butler's new, slimmer physique had everyone turning heads. He was hot with his 300 ab-apalooza, but after losing a ton of weight, Gerard proved he's still got it going on, no matter what body shape he takes on.

While he's still made of muscle, Gerard's new svelte figure had some worrying about his health. Not to worry, people. Like a ton of actors with fluctuating weight, it's for a movie role. Gerard is playing a surfer in an upcoming flick, so he's been hitting the waves every day.

So how does Butler feel about all the media attention over his body? He told Hollyscoop:

"I don’t care, I've lost weight. They love to get involved in things like that. It would be nice if they appreciated it."

Oh, we do. We definitely do.

"I go through all that work and do it for different roles, and get big for 300 or get heavier for a role, or slim down for a role," Butler told HS at the Machine Gun Preacher movie premiere in Los Angeles. "It'd be nice if they went 'well look, he's committed.'"

Okay, so we're a little more concerned right now with your hotness, but wait till the movie comes out! I'm sure we'll all be praising your performance.

In the flick, Gerard plays surf mentor Rick "Frosty" Hesson. Butler recently joked about his dedication to his role:

"I ate my last meal in October and I run about 40 miles a day. I'm joking. It's just doing a lot of cardio and extremely watching what I eat. I stopped lifting big weights and I'm doing yoga. It's not hard to be in shape...it's hard to be in really good shape."

See, even he knows he's in really good shape.

"But this is how I look," he continued. "I just used to be a lot bigger. But now I'm surfing. I don't know...maybe I'm sick or something!"
Over the summer, Gerard was spotted riding his motorcycle down the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. And he had some precious cargo in tow—Jessica Biel. Of course, it spurred a ton of dating rumors. He was also linked to Eddie Cibrian's ex-wife and Real Housewife star Brandi Glanville. So what's his relationship status?

"I am single," Gerard tells us.
