I had a boyfriend in highschool who spoke fluent Russian because his Mom was Russian. It's a beautiful language! Wish I'd paid more attention when he spoke it! Wonder why the name of the mag is "Psychologies"?

Below is a link to the translated article. It's google's translation of the article so the wording is a little awkward but you can still understand what he said.

I bustedout laughing when I read the caption under the picture of him from Playing theField that was in this article. In someforeign countries, for various reasons they have to change the name of the movie … well ….

Terez if you right click 'open link in new window' it works!

Here's a cut and paste, and it's just the 'teaser' of the article,

off newsstands. We can check back early in November!

Gerard Butler: "I am a member of extremes"

  • October 16, 2012 00:00
  • Victoria Belopolskaya
  • PSYCHOLOGIES № 79
He decided to become an actor only 25. At 43 he is still single. For him there is no "early" or "late." Meeting with Gerard Butler, who said this just now.

His assistant - sweet, low-key appearance of a middle aged woman. This is it opens the door for me in London hotel room where our interview is scheduled. Normal stellar practice - to meet with journalists removed luxurious suite in a five-star hotel, and all the talk is the official, somewhat bureaucratic, with the necessary condition of agency did not ask the stars of "personal questions." It is understood that the question about the wives, lovers, or, God forbid, children are not allowed in fear of you-dvoreniya suites. And I was even surprised that Butler's assistant does not tell me anything like that in such cases the traditional uncompromising tone. I even specify: what if I ask for something to say ... so ... well, not much about the movie. She shrugs, "Ask for whatever you want, Jerry anything from anyone not hiding." Anything from anyone? It's simply impossible: perhaps the main concern stars - something to hide from prying journalists ...

But when "Jerry" out of the other room, I know what was behind the reaction assistant. Gerard Butler does not give the impression of the soul open. But he gave the impression of exceptional strength. Growth of at least 190 cm, accuracy of facial features, open look bright, clear gray-green eyes. Antique statues for good reason - it was he who was chosen for the role of King Leonidas in "300" Zack Snyder. Determination movements - of course, it was a conqueror Attila in the eponymous television series. Genuine warmth to the other party - and who else could play into sharp, touching «PS I love you" ? Even impersonal design suite when he appeared as if illuminated with warm light. Next to Gerard Butler feel comfortable and protected. And now I never will agree, when it will be called "sex symbol." Well, if it is a symbol of something, it's true manhood. It's the point. About her and talking.

Here is the rest of the article from the above link:

Psychologies: a name given in the Russian hire your new movie - "The man snapped," - seems to fit your image in the cinema and in the public consciousness. Underlined manhood, masculinity - how this "trademark" corresponds to the real you?

Gerard Butler: Secrets Trademarks not disclosed! But if you ask serious ... That answer would still sound hollow. The fact is that we have in Scotland, I am quite an ordinary person is the average Scot. So that he was amazed that in America in this very masculine, I supposedly inherent, people see the feature and ... weird, but a special attraction. Well, its a movie of me and exploits. And the word "exploitation" I do not invest any negative sense. Not to be a cynic, but we go on living market with their goods. And this is the stark reality of life, that the goods, which at first I could offer - yes, the courage, italics in the general "cinematic." But it happened by itself, without my conscious participation. I'm used to a different sense of self. Houses in Glasgow for myself was simply "a male."

But because of the concept of "masculinity" is worth something to you?

JB: Well, no flimsy ambivalence, definitely. That is honesty with life, with others. Perhaps it is in me says my Scottish - we confidently stand with both feet on the ground. When we laugh - really laugh. Grief can and cry, because I really feel sorrow. Always look in the eye. The decision is made once. Back of the mind we do not. Stones in his bosom - too. It turns out that this is a masculinity that can be characterized and women. Even more particularly feminine masculinity. And in this sense I am a convinced feminist.

In what sense?

JB: I do not see any difference between people based on gender. For me there is no prescribed roles for women and men in society. Especially in the modern world, sex is increasingly becoming the subject of free choice. What I do not believe at all, so that's it: a man - a hunter and protector of the woman - is weak and certainly should have the maternal instinct.

So you do not advocate?

JB: I certainly advocate. But not because I'm a man. I advocate simply because many more.

But you do not feel shy and their weaknesses - recently became the drug treatment clinic and then talk about it in detail.

JB: I am sure that is not ashamed of their weakness, not to hide the problem - a sign of strength. It is what it is. And there is nothing to hide. I really was dependent on painkillers after two injuries: one old received another set of "300", the second - the new, hit the rocks during the filming of "conquerors waves," I was there surfer. Well, the old Scottish attachment to the old Scotch whiskey is also not a joke. But if you decide to deal with the painful addiction, then you are said to myself, that depends. And sometimes admit to something publicly - the only way to bring herself to admit.

You said that you and cry. And I somehow poorly represent you in tears.

JB: And for good reason. Sometimes I think that I am of the extremes: I have concrete frame and I show a unique tenacity or stubbornness lamb, then I melt like chocolate - especially for women look ...

Your parents are divorced, you grew up in a so-called single-parent family, with the mother ...

JB: Yeah, I was eighteen years old, when they separated. My father, as I learned later, was stunning, immensely charming, cheerful, generous and absolutely irresponsible people. Once again, I saw it when I was 16. Returned from school, and my mother says my father is waiting for you at a restaurant near our home. He came into the restaurant and identified him only by his sister near - she sat with him at the table. The only thing that could then say, "Why were not you with us all these years?" And then cried for about three hours ... Anyway, when I felt that we are ... how shall I say ... conserved pain. Unexpressed, unmanifested pain, resentment can sit in us over the years. And well, if they throw out once in tears. Bitterness worse. That's when I instinctively came to the conclusion that feelings should be given out. It is healthier and more honest. And my mom was. Real fighter. Sometimes, it happens, I say, come on, Mom, but to hell with it. And it is - no, no pulls and direct confrontation is not afraid. This, of course, the character, but also quite conscious position, too - honesty in a relationship with the world.

Her opinion means a lot to you?

JB: And always meant and will mean. Anyway, when I was kicked out in disgrace upscale law firm, she was the only person to whom I did not know how to say it. And not because he was afraid of her conviction. The fact that it was a positive program crashes, as they say in psychological brochures. I was an excellent student in school, got a scholarship at the Law Faculty of the University of Glasgow. And while our family is actually from the working class, and my admission to law school has become something like "Wow, in one of our university!". I mean, I always wanted to be an actor, even playing in the Scottish Youth Theatre teenager. But as a matter of life ... The Scottish actor was then the world-one - Sean Connery ... In short, I decided to reach real. The University almost shine, even became president of the faculty of the Law Society. After university I took an intern at a major Edinburgh law firm with an established reputation, centuries-old, I must say. I was supposed to pass a two-year probation, according to its results to get a license to work and I will be in the same company - the rails are attorneys. But something inside me clicked and cranked ... broke. I was 24, the success of turn my head, started partying before breakfast, was arrested a couple of times on "hooliganism" - I loved the fight ... So, a week before the lawyer's qualifications fired me to hell, and deservedly so. I, of course, survived the shock - I did before was a permanent winner. Besides walking the Edinburgh Festival, and I was on the play based on the novel Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh, who later became a film Danny Boyle's "Trainspotting." The guy who played the title role, was just a phenomenon. He moved so freely, so easily fell into hysterics, so brilliantly portrayed glitches ... and I keenly piercing, painful feeling that I could be there on the scene. But still lost, I'm 25, I'm not an actor, and I will not, and I was fired even from lawyers ... I know what it is to feel lost, to be unreasonably aggressive ... And while I have nothing so do not panic, as the need to say about the collapse of his mother! I was afraid to upset her and was afraid of her disappointment. And when he said, I realized that there will be no worse, and now I can. And then told my mom that finally decided to become an actor, and moved from Edinburgh to London. And the failure was actually a godsend. Although at first I worked in the kitchens of restaurants, the waiter pointed to the mall as elektroigrushki work. The then top of my classes - the telemarketer to "shop on the couch."

But what was the reaction of your mother?

JB: I am a long time thought that it condemned me, I'm really disappointed her. But two months later received a letter: "If you're happy, I'm proud of you."

You 43rd, many are wondering why you are not married and did not even noticed in any serious way ...

JB: I just talent - talent to keep their secrets. Was a relationship that lasted for 5 years, 2 years, and no one, not one tabloid of them did not recognize. But they excitedly wrote about Jennifer Aniston on the age they depend much less , Hilary Swank and more of the 50 actresses with whom I was doing, or just friends, interviewed at the official reception - what was then my passionate love affair ... But you know, three years ago, when a new acquaintance asked me a question, I married, and I answered that no, not married, people would say, well, you're still young. And now I've noticed that people react rather surprised, like - why is this? I myself now react to this with surprise.

And yet - you feel happy?

JB: In my opinion, happiness - is if we live now, here at the moment, knowing that only our present, and really ... I would so like to - to live in the flow of happiness. Happiness, a sense of reality of its existence. I think now I finally ceased to live only to work. Ran a "Harley" in the southern states. Learned to surf. Played football with his nephews ... But listen to yourself now ... God, what an idiot I am! Traveled, studied and played ... Where I'm running?

Three strange places that he visited

• County jail in Los Angeles, where he landed "was drunk" during the annual trip to the United States after graduation and where he was chained to the same eight hooligans.

• Betty Ford Center for sufferers of alcohol and drug addiction, which is recognized Butler, "stimulate the desire to run out soon - everything is so well thought-out, so aesthetically, there are admirable interiors and landscapes - ecstasy ... And so you want to quickly recover and get back to this puppet in the real world. "

• Impoverished suburbs of Johannesburg (South Africa), the so-called townships, where Butler starred in the film "Machine Gun Preacher," Marc Forster, where homes are sometimes built from cardboard boxes and where they live, according to the actor, "possibly the poorest, but undoubtedly the most open-minded people in the world.
