Butler addresses Glanville hook-up controversy

Gerard Butler clarified to radio shock jock Howard Stern on Monday why he asked “Who’s Brandi Glanville?” when approached by a paparazzi after reality star Brandi revealed they slept together.

Gerard Butler has explained why he couldn’t remember Brandi Glanville’s name momentarily after she revealed they slept together.

The 43-year-old Scottish actor and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star engaged in a steamy tryst in 2011.

In January 2012 on TV show Watch What Happens Live, Brandi revealed to Andy Cohen that Gerard’s performance in bed was an “11 out of 10”.

Shortly after Brandi’s shocking public announcement, paparazzi approached Gerard about the matter only to hear the actor inquire about the reality star’s identity.

“Who’s Brandi Glanville?” the actor asked TMZ at the time.

Gerard visited shock jock Howard Stern’s radio show Monday and while being interviewed acknowledged he and Brandi did in fact hook up with one another romantically.

He said they got cozy “at a beach party” and “had a little bit of fun” together.

Apparently when the paparazzo asked Gerard about his brief affair with Brandi, he was taken by surprise.

“You know what I said — ‘Who’s Brandi Glanville?’ — because I didn’t know her last name, didn’t know she was a celebrity, didn’t know she was going to run out and f**king tell everyone about it!” he said.

Gerard has been linked to a long list of women including Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Biel, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz and Naomi Campbell.

He has been dating actress-and-model Madalina Ghenea for around eight months and it is rumoured the couple may become engaged soon.

Meanwhile, Brandi and Eddie Cibrian split in 2009 after eight years of marriage and the former couple have two children together, Mason and Jake.

Eddie married country singer LeAnn Rimes, whom he engaged in an adulterous affair with while still wed to Brandi, in 2011.
