Butler's 6 pack is back in 'Keeps'
By Jim Slotek, QMI Agency

Gerard Butler in "Playing for Keeps."

It's not usually considered good form to open an interview by calling someone "a freakin' liar."

But it was delivered with a smile, and I figured Gerard Butler would have a sense of humour about it.

The point of contention was an interview he'd given for The Ugly Truth -- the rom-com he'd made with Katherine Keigl -- at which he as much as guaranteed that he'd never be seen sporting Spartan six-pack abs again. "I was ridiculous in 300," he'd said, describing the regimen as "incredibly difficult" and "pointless."

True to his word at the time, paparazzi had rudely photographed him on the beach looking less than Spartan.

So have you seen Gerard Butler lately?
