ROUGH CUT (NO NARRATION) STORY:Gerard Butler held the European premiere of "Olympus has Fallen" at the IMAX in London's South Bank on Wednesday (April 3). The Scottish actor not only stars in the movie as an ex-presidential security officer but also produced it. It was after making this film that Butler decided to take a break from Hollywood and go travelling. "There were too many times where I made a movie and another movie and a press tour and then I had no time off in between and suddenly you don't enjoy it any more because it's just work," he said, "so I always try and get away and experience another culture or go on a roadtrip somewhere, or as The Sun said, I went to Thailand and became a monk - only they could think that up! - So I always love to get away." When asked if he would consider taking on the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming movie adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey", Butler joked: "Nah. I just would do that in my own life. I don't think I'd have to make a movie about it." "Olympus has Fallen" opens in UK cinemas on April 17.
