Does Gerard Butler Have A Wife or Girlfriend and How Much Is He Worth?

Gerard Butler may be a world-famous actor now, but there used to be a time when he chased a career path in law. He attended the University of Glasgow School of Law and was the president of the university’s law society. He joined an Edinburgh firm after graduation as a trainee but was fired due to heavy drinking. With that, he decided to change his career path and looked at the world of acting.

The Scottish actor and film producer has won several awards since he embraced the movie industry. What’s more, he has been so busy over the years that fans can’t help but wonder if and when he’ll settle down. All eyes are on Gerard Butler and the potential lady he could finally start a family with.

Why Gerard Butler Has Never Been Married

Fans have always wondered why a man as successful and handsome as Gerard Butler hasn’t settled down. The reason, according to the actor, is his career. Thanks to his breakout role as King Leonidas in 300, Butler’s plate has become full of several leading roles. This means he has to be present at filming locations from start to finish, which prevents him from being able to focus on his relationship. The actor is determined to change that though, stating in an interview with People Magazine that he’d like to have his personal life run things more than his career.

With his fair share of short relationships, Gerard has been linked to several spectacular women. However, he has been in an on-and-off relationship with one in particular; Morgan Brown. Gerard and Morgan began dating in 2014. The relationship went through some tough times and was set for a collapse in three years. The two tried to salvage things by going for a holiday trip, but it didn’t go well and so the relationship ended in 2017. Sources later revealed the break-up was a result of Gerard’s refusal to commit.

Months later, the two got back together, almost like there hadn’t been a breakup in the first place. Their second time together lasted for two years before the couple split up again in early 2019. Butler wasn’t away from Brown for long because in April 2019 the duo was spotted together in the streets of New York. They were also together at the premiere of Gerard Butler’s movie Angel Has Fallen, in which the actor reprises his role as Secret Service Agent Mike Banning.

Other Women The Actor Has Dated

In 2017, Butler mentioned to People Magazine that he would like to settle down in five years with maybe a child or two. With the way things are going, Morgan Brown just might be the one he settles with.

Before his relationship with Brown, Gerard Butler dated The Bounty Hunter co-star Jennifer Aniston for a year before they moved on to be good friends. Butler had been around to comfort Aniston when she went through her divorce with Justin Theroux.

He has also dated other high-profile women like Madalina Ghenea, Shanna Moakler, and Jasmine Burgess. Furthermore, the actor was once rumored to be dating Cameron Diaz, Goga Ashkenazi, Lindsay Lohan, and Naomi Campbell among others.

Gerard Butler’s Net Worth and Most Lucrative Roles

After losing his internship position at the Edinburgh firm, Butler would get his first acting gig in Steven Berkoff’s theater production of Coriolanus. He got another role in the theater adaptation of Trainspotting before he moved to Los Angeles. His breakout role was that of Spartan King Leonidas in the Warner Bros. action movie 300, which is based on the 1998 comic series of the same name.

Gerard Butler went through a high-intensity workout for four months to get into proper shape for the role. The movie was a box office success, making over $450 million against its $65 million budget. Besides 300he is admired for his role in 2003’s action film Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life alongside Angelina Jolie. He appeared alongside Jennifer Aniston in the romantic action comedy The Bounty Hunter and was in the 2012 biographical movie, Chasing Mavericks.

Gerard has done a very fine job of amassing a huge net worth with all his different movie roles. The Scottish actor is worth a cool $30 million. His major role as Agent Mike Banning in the Fallen film series has seen him take on larger than life scripts. With a cumulative budget of $170 million (for all three movies in the series), the franchise has grossed over $500 million in the box office.
