Gerard Butler Goofs Around At 'Machine Gun Preacher' Premiere (VIDEO)
Keen to give his adoring fans what they wanted, Scottish heartthrob Gerard Butler played up to the cameras at the Toronto Film Festival red carpet yesterday.
Butler could have been mistaken for attending a comedy premiere, as he saluted the crowd and stuck his tongue out at the paps.
In fact, he was promoting Machine Gun Preacher, the moving real-life tale of Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing criminal who saved hundreds of kidnapped and orphaned children in Sudan.
The world premiere of the film kept audience members rooted to their seats.
This has been a labour of love for Butler, who made a fraction of his regular salary to play Childers. Speaking to journalists on the red carpet, he said he was “completely enlightened and profoundly moved” by the film.
