Dreamy Scotsman Gerard Butler is reportedly headed home today after a stay in the famous Betty Ford Center for a burgeoning problem with prescription drugs.
TMZ broke the story earlier today; their sources reported that "Butler also developed issues with cocaine, but the root problem appears to be the injuries and pain management." Butler wanted to head his problem off at the pass, so a trip to Betty Ford was the answer.
Last December, Gerard Butler had a nasty surfing accident that landed him in the hospital while filming the upcoming movie "Of Men and Mavericks." Being King Leonidas in "300" was also no joke when it came to physical stress for the actor.
While the actor has starred in a handful of rom-coms like "The Bounty Hunter" and "The Ugly Truth," his bread and butter are physically demanding tough guy roles in dramas and actioners like "Law Abiding Citizen," "Gamer," and "Machine Gun Preacher."
Meanwhile, he's got quite a number of upcoming projects on his plate, and none of them sound too low-key. The next movie he's attached to is "Hunter Killer" from "Training Day" director Antoine Fuqua. It was rumored that the production team recently applied to film in Alaska, but there's no official start date.
We're hoping that Butler will be back on his feet soon and in fighting form soon, even if that means his upcoming films are on hold for a bit. Rehab is no joke.
