Butler`s mistaken identity

London: Actor Gerard Butler says he was once mistaken as a troublemaker at an airport after he was returning straight from an audition for an action movie.

The 42-year-old was going through immigration at a London airport when he was stopped by security officials in 2001 and the actor, who had just completed a screen test for ‘Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life’, had a tough time convincing them, reports a website.

"Just after the shoe bomber plot in 2001, I flew to London from Montreal to do a screen test for ‘Lara Croft’. They`d built this caged floor for the set but they couldn`t hear my dialogue properly so they put felt on my boots. Straight after the audition I went back to the airport and as I walked through they went, `OK Sir, show us your feet`," said Butler.

"The guy literally went, `What is that? Security!` The next thing I know there are 10 people around me and I`m telling what sounds like the most far-fetched story every about my audition with Angelina Jolie," he added.
