Gerard Butler fooled a film director into thinking he had eaten a doughnut which the actor had put in his butt
Gerard Butler posed for a photograph with a doughnut in his butt.
The Scottish-born actor loved starring in new sci-fi thriller 'Gamer' so much he decided to thank the directors by sending them a sugary treat - but tricked the filmmakers into thinking the doughnut had been tampered with.
He explained: "I wrote to the two directors on 'Gamer' separately. I wrote that me and the stunt guys are having a blast and sent them half a dozen doughnuts each as a thank you. They were so chuffed.
"The next day we got six fresh doughnuts and shoved them between our a*s cheeks... and took a Polaroid. We sent this snap to the directors and sure enough, they thought they'd been eating the very same sugary treats. They were freaked out man."
Gerard, 39, admits his immature behaviour was mirrored by the rest of the cast and crew on 'Gamer'.
He added to Shortlist magazine: "It was my birthday that day and about 10 of the cast dropped their trousers to reveal 'Happy Birthday Gerry' written across their cheeks.
"Come to think of it, there was a little too much a*s in the making of this film."
