He is most noted for his role as Dracula in the movie of the same name as well as for the leading role of King Leonidas in the movie 300 among others. Gerard Butler’s net worth is estimated to be $40 million

Other than being an excellent actor, he is also a producer and a singer. Gerard has been prominent in Hollywood for almost two decades and has managed to become one of the most sought-after actors.

His Early Life and Career Beginnings

Gerard Butler James was born on 13th November 1969, in Paisley, Scotland as the youngest of three children to Scottish parents. He was a very bright student in school, which is why he landed at the University of Glasgow to study Law. After becoming a law school graduate, when he was in the early twenties, he went on to work in Edinburgh law firm, but he could not do well in the firm due to his erratic and party-hard nature.

Since then, Gerard dreamed of being a famous actor and went on to live in London and then in the USA. It took some time for Gerard to get some roles in television and movies, but his luck changed when he was cast in the movie ‘Dracula 2000’ and then other movies like ‘Reign of Fire’, ‘Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life’ and much more. It was after these movies that Gerard’s earnings started to skyrocket.

Gerard’s career breakthrough is regarded to be the lead role in the movie ‘300’ where he portrayed the brave king of Sparta, Leonidas. He then appeared in other high-grossing movies like ‘P.S. I Love you’, ‘Dear Frankie’, ‘The Bounty Hunter’ and ‘Law Abiding Citizen’ among others. All these projects have done wonders in Gerard’s acting career and have helped him extensively to increase his wealth.

Given his work choices, Gerard has suffered different mishaps in the set of filming many of his movies that have resulted in injury. He has been medicated every now and then for his substance abuse due to these injuries. On a different note, Gerard is also a good singer and a songwriter. It is said that he is in the process of recording an album.

As one who mostly features in action films, Gerard Butler worked on the movie “How to Train Your Dragon 3,” an American 3D computer-animated action-fantasy film released in 2019. His other movies include “Den of Thieves”, which was released in the theatre on January 19, 2018; “Law Abiding Citizen”, “Olympus Has Fallen”, “London Has Fallen”, “Geostorm”, “Gods of Egypt”, and “The Garden of Last Days”.

The Actor Rents His Los Feliz Property for $17,500 Per Month

Being a multimillionaire, Gerard is not short of any kind of luxury in the world as he currently owns a lavish house in Los Angeles as well as an eclectic apartment in Manhattan. Sometime in 2020, it emerged that the actor put up his Los Feliz home in Los Angeles for rent, asking for $17,500 per month. From what we gathered, he purchased the 6,250 square foot Spanish villa in 2008 for $3,250,000.

His portfolio of properties includes the two-residence compound in Point Dume, Malibu, California, which he bought for $6.45 million in 2006. He also owns a 3,200 square foot penthouse in Chelsea, New York City. He purchased the property in 2004, and it cost him almost $2.6 million. That’s not all, the actor also owns a three-bedroom flat in Glasgow, Scotland; he acquired it for $850,000.

The Rides He Owns

This handsome actor isn’t enthusiastic about cars, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t own some luxury rides. He has been seen with a Mercedes-Benz SL550 on several occasions. He also owns a Range Rover and a BMW Z8.

He also has a thing for motorbikes and owns a few of them.

Gerard Butler Has Never Been Married 

Talking about his personal life, Gerard splits homes in Scotland as well as the USA. He likes to keep a very low profile when it comes to his romantic affairs but has been romantically linked to a handful of popular figures over the years; from Gloria Maria to Naomi Campbell, Brandi Glanville, Lindsay Lohan, Madonna, and Martina Rajic.

At some point, it was believed that he had something special with Alesia Riabenkova, Goga Ashkenazi, Beatriz Coelho, Chiara Conti, and Mãdãlina Ghenea. There were also Yuliya Mayarchuk, Josie D’Arby, Shanna Moakler, and Jasmine Burgess. If he truly dated these women, then we might as well describe what they had as an encounter; they all ended almost as soon as people began to take notice of it.

In all, the actor has never been married. Why this is so is best known to him, but he once hinted at his intention to get married in the future. According to him, he’s not yet a “marriage material”, but he is “further along that road.”

He Dated Morgan Brown for Over 6 Years

Butler’s only relationship that stood the test of time was the one he had with Morgan Brown. To the best of our knowledge, it was in September 2014 that the public got wind of their romance; they were seen all kissy and cuddly at a beach in Malibu, California. Given his history with women, it was thought that the relationship would soon become history. But then, Butler would date on and off for over six years.

At some point, people began to embrace the idea of the two getting married. This is yet to happen as they reportedly called off the relationship in 2020. The last time they broke up, their on-off relationship had been going on for 6 years and a half.

Nevertheless, Gerard is still enjoying the best of his life with a successful career that shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. His social life is much more vibrant than expected as the Scottish actor makes out time to acquaint his fans with glimpses of his personal life via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. He commands as many as 1.7 million fans and followers on his Instagram page.
