'Ugly Truth' actor Gerard Butler loves blackberry jam so much he never leaves home without a pot of the sweet conserve
Gerard Butler carries blackberry jam with him wherever he goes.
The 'Ugly Truth' actor is a huge fan of the sweet conserve his mother makes, and never leaves home without a jar of jam.
A source told the National Enquirer magazine: "Gerard surprised folks at a coffee shop in New York when he placed an order for some toast, then reached into his coat pocket and pulled out a jar of homemade jam. He explained it's his mom Margaret's recipe and she ships it to him wherever he is from Scotland. He said he'd never tasted anything as good."
The 39-year-old actor was so keen to show off his mother's culinary skills he offered everyone in the eatery the chance to sample the jam.
Gerard is not the only Hollywood star to carry an unusual item at all times.
Brad Pitt takes a toilet seat with him when he travels as he hates sharing them with other people.
A source said: "It grosses him out, not knowing who used the bathroom before him. So he takes his own to any unfamiliar house or hotel he stays in."
