Gerard Butler is unfazed by success.
The British actor insists he hasn't changed as a person since being catapulted to worldwide fame in comic book adaptation '300'.
He said: "It's weird. You are still the same person who has to deal with getting out of bed every morning and going to the toilet. I think that there's a part of you that always imagines if you encounter success, every fibre of your being will change. And you will suddenly think and feel and behave like a different person. And you don't. You're still, 'Oh, so and so didn't call me,' and 'F**k, I have to take care of that bill.' "
However, Gerard - who can soon be seen starring in Guy Ritchie's new movie 'RocknRolla' - admits he does get recognised a lot more when he goes out.
He explained: "You get people in the street where they literally, at times, go crazy - 'You don't understand this was the best film I ever saw!' And it's the strength of that reaction that is most overwhelming."
