Gerard Butler 'weeps' while watching screening of 'Machine Gun Preacher'

London, Sat, 01 Oct 2011 ANI

London, Oct 1 (ANI): Scottish actor Gerard Butler reportedly broke down in tears while watching a screening of his new film 'Machine Gun Preacher' at London's Mayfair hotel.


The 41-year-old actor admitted that his time working on the bloody Sudan civil war film has left him with post-traumatic stress disorder.


The Hollywood star later explained that the biopic, based on the real life of Sam Childers, a former drug addict and thug who became a born-again Christian and built an orphanage in Sudan, was so tough that he went into a "dark space" after completing it.


"It makes me cry every time I watch it. I was in such a strange space after this. I get nervous about being overcome by emotion, which happens when I start talking about the movie. It's happened a couple of times and I think it is post-traumatic stress because I'd be talking about it and suddenly I would start crying," The Daily Express quoted him as saying.


"As time went on I went into a darker and darker space. When we were in Africa I was spending time filming scenes holding an [actor] child blown in half," he added.


Butler also disclosed that he had met several real refugees during his time tin Africa. (ANI)
