Gerard Butler is currently promoting his new movie ‘Playing for Keeps’, and he has a new interview with CNN to do just that.
He told CNN he learned how to flirt with women in his ‘third’ year at school, or around the age of 14 years old. Butler said, “[T]here was a girl … she was running up the stairs and I said something and I let it linger…something like ‘Oh really? Well, we’ll see. And I just kept looking at her and she looked at me and there was this moment, and suddenly my heart jumped and I could tell that it did that with her, too! And I went…OK, that’s flirting. And that works! And that’s exciting! It’s just that nice moment where you give them an extra smile, especially with women. That seems to be my memory of the first moment when I learned how to flirt – you know, have an effect on women like that.”
He also talks about his co-star, Jessica Biel [who it was rumored that Butler was interested in at some point], saying that she was nice but ‘reserved’ at first.
He adds, “Then the more you get talking, and suddenly she makes a joke and you go, ‘You’re funny!’ Then you get this whole other side of her. [W]ith me you get it all immediately. But with her it’s like this you know you peel back layers and you just see more and more depth and humor. Fortunately we had a long time before the movie started to hang out and to rehearse and then by the time we started we had the best chemistry.”
