Photos of Gerard Butler Shirtless Spending the New Year in Barbados

Gerard Shows a Little More of His Shirtless Scottish Self

Gerard Butler headed to the Caribbean over the weekend for some New Year's fun of his own. He hit the beach shirtless yesterday with a few friends in Barbados, where Simon Cowell has been enjoying his fair share of jet-skiing and soaking up the sun. Gerard similarly ventured off dry land for a little swim in the water. He was off enjoying downtime after a whirlwind 2009 full of filming and promoting movies — he'll be back on the circuit later this year to chat about new projects like The Bounty, which already has a full trailer out. Last April you voted that Gerard still has a certain sexy appeal despite his reputation as a ladies' man, and he was a popular choice for who you would have wanted to kiss to ring in 2010.
