Gerard Butler is gracing the November 2012 cover of Men`s Journal magazine, and I must say he is looking mighty fine!
The 42 year old is looking healthy and in the magazine talks about entering rehab earlier this year. He decided to enter the Betty Ford Clinic and enter treatment based on what he was seeing in himself. He admits he has an addictive personality, both good and bad. The main culprit for him entering rehab was prescription painkillers that he received a few years back for an injury he received while shooting a movie. The pain from that injury carried through for years. He would take some painkillers, but then would stop. He then re-injured himself while surfing for his movie `Chasing Mavericks` and began taking the painkillers again, and this time he noticed he was taking them a lot more quickly. While he said he did not have a full blown addiction, he was scared that he would, so he entered himself into treatment. When he entered treatment he was only taking a minimal amount of painkillers. He stayed in treatment for 3 weeks and said it was like a spring cleaning.
I commend Gerard for knowing his personality and voluntarily seeking help for something he could see being a problem. He also cleared up rumors that he`s been drinking a lot and doing drugs. "That really pissed me off," "I haven`t had a drink in 15 years." Gerard stated.
Gerard`s new movie `Chasing Mavericks` opens in theaters on October 26,2012
