Walking the Red Carpet or Running the Gauntlet - You Choose

by Julia Smith

Imagine it.

You're Gerard Butler.

You studied hard to be a lawyer, but reached instead for the brass ring.

You've carved a nice career for yourself in Hollywood - not an easy job for anyone.

You've got three films out this year and spend a lot of time promoting each and every one of them. That means walk after walk down the red carpet, a glamorous and exciting part of being an A-list actor.

Or is it?

Let's check out some shots from various red carpet walks he's taken:

Red carpet.


Having fun.

Having no fun.

Good times.

With Katherine Heigl

Not so much.

Workin' it.

Endurance match.



Co-stars make the burden light.

With Rodrigo Santoro

Spartan training comes in handy.

Apparently, it's more fun to share the red carpet.

With Hilary Swank and Jeffrey Dean Morgan

I get by with a little help from my friends.

Don't forget to wish Gerry a Happy 40th Birthday today!
