Gerard Butler Battles Bulge On Barbados Beach

It’s the ugly truth — hunky Gerard Butler does have a softer side!

The 40-year-old screen star was snapped Sunday on a Barbados beach, his physique looking noticeably chunkier than the chiseled Spartan he portrayed in his 2007 mega-hit, 300.

The Scottish native, sans six-pack, looked pale and paunchy in his pink shorts, as he cavorted with an exotic dark-haired beauty and pals on the Caribbean island.

Butler’s next film, The Bounty Hunter, hits theaters March 19.
