This is one of those stories that just goes to show, you never know how things will turn out! Gerard Butler said he was only weeks away from qualifying as an attorney when he decided to go to Hollywood and try his hand at acting. He explained it to Britain’s Men’s Health magazine.
“You have to understand that I was completely out of control. If I hadn’t been so lost and insane, I’d still be a lawyer. I said to myself, I’m aiming for the stars. I’ll worry about the details later.”
He said he was at a personal “low point” when he made the decision.
“That was the worst day of my life, now it’s the best.”
While Gerard admits talent and luck were factors in his success, the real key was working hard.
“The universe conspires. Once you decide to do something, the universe starts to help you.
“There are a lot of people who are really talented, and I can see they’re not going to make it because they don’t work hard enough.”
I’ve seen that: talent and luck matter, but hard word is the key.
