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.

Becozy fell under Gerry’s spell when she watched Phantom of The Opera for the first time in May 2005, while recovering from knee surgery. She was smitten with the Phantom from the moment his face appeared in the mirror, falling in love during the Music of the Night. After searching the internet for information about the actor able to cast such a spell, she discovered Gerard Butler. Her life, and that of her family, hasn’t been the same since. With Gerry as a common bond, becozy has an expanding world of cyber and real friends.  Her family has greeted her new found ‘hobby’ with enthusiasm and her new friends with a warm welcome. Happily, her husband and two (now adult) children share her admiration of Gerry. Her family knows and understands all Gerry references in their correct context. Mention 3AM, camels, or yellow towels, for example and you’ll get a knowing nod! Over ten years later, as much time as possible each day is spent in the care and nurturing of her Addiction. It is a delicate balancing act to fulfill her duties as wife and mom and her duties as a GAL, but one she is determined to master.
