Gerard Butler Honored at the 2007 Taurus World Stunt Awards



Gerard Butler took the 2007 Taurus World Stunt Awards' Action Movie Star of the Year trophy on the gala ceremony held Sunday, May 21.

Already announced to be the Action Movie Star of the Year last month, Gerard Butler finally can bring the prize home as he was officially bestowed the title at the ceremony of this year's Taurus World Stunt Awards held Sunday, May 20.

Named so for conducting many of his own stunts in epic saga "300", the actor received the trophy from the hands of fellow thesp Dennis Hopper, who described Butler's role as King Leonidas in the flick to be a "powerful, flesh-and-blood performance combined with brilliantly aggressive, athletic stuntwork."

"Gerard Butler brought us a state of the art, yet ancient vision of an action hero for the 21st century," he further remarked.

"One of the reasons why you get involved in an action movie is because you want to go all the way with it and do as much as you can without being suicidal," Butler said in his comment on forgoing a stunt double. "But every move I made in that film, I learned from them."

Butler, a Glasgow-born actor of Scottish/Irish descent, first built his acting career through a couple of stage plays before landing his film debut in 1997's "Mrs. Brown." His next big screen projects after "300" are "Butterfly on a Wheel", "P.S., I Love You", "Therese Raquin", and "Nim's Island" to name few.
