HOLLYWOOD heartthrob Gerard Butler treated a bar full of football fans to free pizza during a visit to his home town.
The 300 star was visiting relatives in Paisley when he stopped off at the town’s Argyll Bar to watch Scotland draw 1-1 with Ireland.
A regular said: “Everyone was there to see the football but, all of a sudden, Gerard Butler appeared.
“I couldn’t believe it. It’s not every day a Hollywood A-lister pops into your local.”
And Butler, 45, paid for dinner for everyone.
The drinker said: “People were getting their picture taken with him and he bought pizza and pakora for everyone.
“There was a bit of banter about him saying in interviews that he was from Ralston when he actually lived in Gallowhill as a boy but it was all in good fun and he seemed to be enjoying himself.
“He was a really genuine guy and it was a nice surprise to see him back in Paisley.”
Delighted Stacey Thomson got her photo taken with the hunk in Gallowhill, where he has relatives.
She said: “My mum lives just across from the shops in Netherhill Road and I was so lucky to spot Gerard.
“Mum was out in her housecoat and was chinning him to buy her a house.
“He was so lovely. He’s an absolute legend.
“We’d just had our lunch though and my wee one had spilled gravy on me. I wish I was more prepared.”
Butler, 45, grew up in Paisley and trained to be a lawyer before he decided to pursue his dream of acting.
With star roles in action-packed blockbusters such as Law Abiding Citizen and Machine Gun Preacher, he is now one of the biggest names in Hollywood.
