Hump Day Hottie

This weeks Hump Day Hottie was born in Glasgow, Scotland on November 13, 1969 and is the youngest of 3 children.
He grew up with his mother in Paisley, Scotland after his parents’ separation.
He studied law at Glasgow University, where he received top grades and serves as President of the school’s Law Society and worked as a trainee solicitor after graduation.
In 1997 he saved a young boy from drowning and received a “Certificate Of Bravery” from the Royal Humane Society.
His first acting roles were in the stage plays Coriolanus and in Trainspotting.
His first movie role was working with Dame Judi Dench and Billy Connolly in Mrs. Brown.
The role that put this weeks Hump Day Hottie on the map was starring opposite Angelina Jolie in the movie Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life but his breakthrough role was playing the title role of Atilla in the US television serial Atilla in 2001.
He began taking formal singing lessons, training for hours a day from January 2003 to June 2004 before he was even cast for the title role in the film rendition of The Phantom of the Opera.
Rumors surfaced that he was to play James Bond in Casino Royale but that role later went to English actor Daniel Craig.
Butler plays the Spartan King Leonidas in 300. Despite mixed revies, the movie made box-office history for the month of March.


He has an amazing ability to change his look completely so I included 3 photos so that you could see the difference. Plus, I couldn't resist to put one of him in his leather thong/diaper from 300.














This weeks Hump Day Hottie is ~ Gerard Butler

I knew it was him by the forth sentence. Damn I'm good =;-) Waiting patiently for a female hottie...

Tara said...

Ohhhhh thank you, thank you, thank you. I saw him in an indie movie called "Dear Frankie". Very good movie, you should check it out. And I loved him in "Dracula 2000".

Everywhere I look I see a Gerard Butler waiting...

minijonb ~ Good for you! I will give you credit since you forgot that I told you who was going to HDH last week.
Patience is a virtue.

Tara ~ Your welcome, welcome, welcome. The only other movie of his that I had seen was Phantom. I need to see some more of his AND Daniel Craigs.

Egan ~ ? sorry, you lost me.

egan said...

Yes, I figured as much. I will never ever try and quote lyrics from Beck on your blog again. My bad.

Babybull40 said...

Damn he's a fine looking specimen.. Nice sixpack going on...Another good pick...

Churlita said...

Okay. This guy? This guy I can get into without feeling like a creepy old lady. He is delicious.

Yummmy!! Rachel, I have to say, every Wednesday I log into my blog roll so I can see the Hump Day Hottie. Thanks, once again, for the eye candy!!

Rachel said...

egan ~ Good thinking. I don't know any Beck lyrics. I couldn't even name you the title of a Beck song except for maybe The Sweater Song (they do perform that one right?)

babybull40 ~ Thank you. That movie (300) was a six & eight pack fiesta.

Churlita ~ See? I told you that you would like this weeks. He is yumalicious.

not so little woman ~ Yay! I am glad that you like me HDH installments. When I first started I had some negative feedback. I don't care though. I love doing it.

egan said...

Wow, that's not a Beck song. That's a Weezer song. I've learned a valuable lesson today: chicks love guys with abs and Rachel doesn't know the difference between Beck and Weezer.

Rachel said...

Egan ~ Oops. I have revealed to you my total lack of music knowledge. I recognize lots of songs but never know who sings them or the title of the song.
Do the sing the song that has the really fun Woo Hoo's in it?

egan said...

The Woo Hoo folks are indeed Weezer. I can see where you might have been confused. They both sing about odd things like sweaters and girls.

Beth said...

Mmmmmmmmmmm, the Phantom.....sigh.

He can sing 'just love me...that's all I ask of you' to me ANYtime.

My taste in men is so different--I mentioned a few of my picks in hotties to Wenders the other night--but I always enjoy your blog no matter the topic. :)

Hilly said...

Now I am singing "That bridge is crossed so stand and watch it burnnnn". I always said that I would have stayed with THAT phantom if given the choice ;)

I don't recognize him, but he is HOT!
