The only people that joined actor Gerard Butler for lunch after he got out of the Betty Ford Clinic were the wait staff at the restaurant and the paparazzi. Has his substance abuse left Butler with no friends, or is this just a coincidence?
Just hours after leaving his three-week treatment for drug abuse, Gerard Butler was spotted out having lunch, by himself, in Malibu. One would think that he might have had at least a little company, seeing as how he had been off the radar for the last three weeks. Clearly, for the 300 actor, this wasn't the case. Butler, who had a history of other drug and alcohol issues, got hooked on pain meds after an injury on the set of Of Men and Mavericks.
Hopefully, Gerard Butler has not had all of his friends abandon him. He will continue to need the help of those around him as he fights the disease of addiction. Though lunch by one's self may have been a wonderful opportunity to get out and reflect, perhaps some good quality friend time may be what the doctor ordered.
