Gerard Butler spoke positively about working with Katherine Heigl, describing her as an inspiration to work with. Gerard Butler said that he can relate to the film’s character quite well, as he to can sometimes be a bit outrageous, childish & cheeky but also lovable at the same time. He also said the script appealed to him because there was an opportunity for him to be a little bit outrageous in the movie. He jokingly remarked that the script also appealed to him because script gave him the opportunity to swear and say bad words. In short, Gerard Butler described The Ugly Truth as a romantic comedy about relationships between men and women, it’s about control, power games and the truth about what men think.
This is what Katherine Heigl had to say about why Gerard Butler was chosen to star in this movie with her:
“Gerard Butler is obviously an attractive, sexy man. He’s such a guy. I felt we really needed that. You don’t want to bring in the pretty boy who doesn’t sort of have that charisma and that sex appeal. And, you have to like him ultimately. And Gerry is. He made this guy, even as crass and as horrible as some of the things out of his mouth were, you like him. There’s something about him you just like and that was super important. And he just nailed it.”
