Gerard Butler Has Daddy Issues

Actor Gerard Butler has a reputation as a womanizer, but really what it all comes down to is that he’s just afraid of commitment. Butler solely puts the blame on his absent father.

Butler, seen here leaving the Groucho Club in London, – who didn’t have contact with his father again until he was 16 – told German magazine Joy: “I act very awkward when I am with women. Perhaps that’s because my mother brought me up alone. My father gambled away all our money and eventually went bankrupt. So one night our family had to flee head over heels to Canada. At that time my mother was five months pregnant with me. Shortly after my second birthday my father let us down. It is said that men who grow up without a father have a fear of commitment.”

As for the womanizer rumors – “It’s totally bizarre. Since I am considered in Hollywood to be a true womaniser people impute affairs to me all the time. Last year I was linked to ten different women! Only one of them was true.”

So who did the plant-dangling lothario hook up with? Leave your guesses in the comments.
