Gerard Butler admits he doesn’t watch Ryan Reynolds films but Reynolds has the last laugh

Scots actor Gerard Butler was oblivious to Ryan Reynold’s new movie blockbuster Free Guy which is huge box office hit.

Butler, 51, from Paisley was asked about the movie in a recent interview as it has similarities to his 2009 box office bomb ‘Gamer’ but Gerard was oblivious, declaring that he doesn’t watch Ryan Reynolds films.

The two Hollywood actors films have similarities due to them both taking place within the world of a video game.
