Photos of Gerard Butler Shirtless on the Beach in Rio While Attending Carnival

Gerard Trades Vacation With Jen For Carnival With Nicole

A shirtless Gerard Butler ran into Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger yesterday as they both celebrated Carnival in Rio. Lucky Gerard is enjoying another vacation after his recent trip to Cabo, where he partied in honor of Jennifer Aniston's birthday with her best friends. You guys don't think Gerard and Jen have anything romantic going on, but his time with Nicole, who recently split up with racecar driver Lewis Hamilton, also seemed platonic. He's down in Brazil joining the likes of Madonna and Paris Hilton during the festivities, but if you want to see more of Gerard, his Law Abiding Citizen is out on DVD today.
