“I would like to apologise to the nation of Ireland for completely abusing your accent” – Gerard Butler apologies for PS I Love You and talks RocknRolla, which is out on DVD this weekend

“I would like to apologise to the nation of Ireland for completely abusing your accent. I realise that it’s a much more beautiful language and accent than what I gave, but I tried my best. I made you look like funny people…”

 

Gerard Butler was certainly feeling giddy when we met with the man to discuss Guy Ritchie’s  latestr project.  In “RocknRolla”, the Scotsmen plays One-Two, the charming East End crook-about-town who gets roped into stealing huge chunks of Russian mafia cash by a very slinky accountant (played by the very slinky Thandie Newton), and thus setting in motion a battle between London’s old school underworld (headed up here by Tom Wilkinson’s self-professed “headmaster”) and a Russian billionaire (played by Karl Roden) who, cheekily, bears an uncanny resemblence to Chelsea F.C. owner Roman Abramovich.

 

Here, Paul Byrne chats with Butler about the film, which comes to DVD and Blu-Ray this Friday.
