Gerard Butler made a very lucky lady’s dreams come true!
The actor arrived in Sydney two weeks ago and took it to the next level on the weekend when he crashed a hen’s party, much to the delight of the bride-to-be.
Dragana Ogorelica, a close friend of the bride, says they got “the shock of our lives” when they saw the 44-year-old heartthrob standing on the boat they hired for the day.
When the ladies arrived at the dock, they expected a fun day out on Sydney Harbour, but the manager of the boat hire company said he had a surprise waiting for them.
“We thought it was a stripper, because it was a hen’s party. But then we saw [Gerard] standing on the boat. We all just started screaming,” said Dragana.
She said that the actor called down to the girls, “Is this a hen’s party? Can I join? We’re going to dance a little bit, drink a little bit.”
Gerard Butler then told his management they could leave because he was going to stay and party with the girls.
The actor gave the bride-to-be a long hug, complimented her, and said her future husband was “a really lucky guy, whoever he is.”
Dragana said that the bride, Maja Nogic, who is a big fan of the actor, was ecstatic.
As Gerard was hugging Maja, her groom was on his buck’s weekend. The girls texted him to say they had met the star.
He replied: “That’s it, I’m going to go and find Jennifer Hawkins.” He then told his fiancée that he would understand if she ran off with Butler.
Dragana said Gerard was “so nice and so relaxed. We all loved him.”
“His accent, oh my goodness, it was so beautiful. You couldn’t understand him half the time, but you didn’t care because it was just gorgeous.”
Gerard was also happy to pose for photos with the group. He even got them to take one doing his ‘signature pose’ – placing their right hands above their eyes and looking as if they’re searching the skies for something. The actor said this was a photo he took with people all over the world.
Dragana said the chance encounter with the actor “started our day amazingly.”
The star is currently in Sydney as he prepares to play Set, the ancient Egyptian god of chaos and violence in the film Gods of Egypt.
If only Gerard would appear at our parties! We can only dream…
