After making the promotional rounds for his new flick “Chasing Mavericks,” Gerard Butler enjoyed some down time in New York City on Wednesday (October 24).

The 42-year-old Scottish hunk sported a casual ensemble as he walked past the mob of eager shutterbugs and fans.

Earlier in the week, Gerard dropped by “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” to explain what his new film is all about.

“It’s a true story of this kid who ended up surfing this wave and it ended up being one of the biggest waves in the world… these guys are warriors, they’re fighter pilots,” Butler said. “That’s why I wanted to do this movie you know. When I read the story I thought it really explains what it takes to be that kind of athlete- what it takes to be a surfer.”
