Scottish actor Gerard Butler
quit smoking after playing a cancer victim in his new movie P.S. I Love You
. The 300
star took the role as a huge hint he had to take better care of himself.
He says, "I was smoking a huge amount and having real bad premonitions (of death), and then I get this role where the guy dies of cancer. The film made me contemplate death and made me realize I was playing Russian roulette with my health. I've since stopped smoking. And I think this is it... it's been seven or eight months since I smoked."
