Gerard Butler Says He's "Lucky to Be Here" After Motorcycle Crash
Don't worry, guys! After a terrifying motorcycle accident, Gerard Butler is going to be okay, but he admits that he's very, very lucky. During an appearance on The Talk on Friday, the 47-year-old actor recounted the harrowing story to the hosts.
"I’m lucky to be here," he said. "I went 33 feet through the air. I did a somersault." Pretty crazy. He recalled that a bystander, who witnessed the crash, saying, "'Wow, you really are an action movie star.'" He may have handled the crash pretty well, but he didn't walk away unscathed.
Butler sustained "five fractures in my right foot alone, because I landed right on my knees, so I’ve done my knees in and my left foot. And this had been the busiest period of my career," he continued. "I was in bed for four days. I couldn’t get out of bed." Yikes!
After resting for those four days, he is feeling better. Butler walked the red carpet for his new movie Geostorm less than a week after the accident. What a trooper.
