Gerard Butler has laughed off concerns over his recent weight loss, revealing he has been on a strict diet in preparation to play a surfer.
The hunky 300 star has been shedding pounds from his muscular figure in recent months, sparking upset among his female fans, but the Scottish actor is adamant there is no need to worry about his health, putting his new lean look down to a vigorous pre-filming routine.
He tells EOnline.com, "If I wear a long shirt, everyone says 'Oh my God, he lost so much weight!' But this is how I look. I just used to be a lot bigger. But now I'm surfing. I'm doing a surf movie so I have to slim down. I don't know... maybe I'm sick or something!"
"It's just doing a lot of cardio and extremely watching what I eat. I stopped lifting big weights and I'm doing yoga. It's not hard to be in shape... it's hard to be in really good shape. I generally train for a role and give everything to that, and then you stop and then you do it again."
