WALTER SCOTT ASKS ... Gerard Butler

The actor, 43, plays a former soccer star who tries to redeem himself as a husband and father by coaching his son’s soccer team, in the romantic comedy Playing for Keeps, now in theaters.

Your character has a way with the ladies. Is that something you relate to?

I’m famously a good flirt! That’s a Scottish thing: the Celtic charm. I can put on a big smile and say the right things, but I’m also a warm heart. I like to make people feel good.

Did playing a dad in the film make you think about being a father one day?

Absolutely! I think I’ll be a great dad, although I can’t wait too long because I’m getting on. I love kids. I really look forward to having toddlers running around.

You were injured in a surfing accident last year while shooting Chasing Mavericks. How are you feeling today?

I’m great. I spend my life getting beaten up in my films. I think I have a penchant for it, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

If you weren’t an actor, what would you be?

Probably a musician. I sang in a band in Scotland before I became an actor. I was recently thinking I should start singing again because I do miss it. It’s a great outlet for my emotions.

If he starts singing, he better not have the gravely voice he used in PSILY. God, i didn't like that one. The one in POTO was lush and made me melt.

O, can i be even more melted by the "Celtic charm"? I'd like to be one of lot...

Silver.

I dunno, I kind of like the gravely voice. Depends on the song, I suppose. ^_^

I really hope he puts together a CD as well...perhaps several.... I'd love to hear a collection of his favorite Christmas songs, some old Celtic tunes...really his favorite songs period. Would be quite interesting to hear yet another side to him!
