SCOTS movie stud Gerard Butler has revealed how he “hates himself” for ditching his accent to land Hollywood roles.

The 300 star – born in Glasgow – said to prevent slips he has begun speaking only in an American accent, despite slamming other stars for doing it.

Butler, 39, said: “I hated anyone from Scotland who lost their accent in the slightest.

“When Sheena Easton made it in America and suddenly stared talking in an accent I swore and threw shoes at her on the television.

“I’m not comfortable enough do American accents only when we film so I have to keep it up all the time.

“I really hate myself for doing that.”

Butler – who stars in the Ugly Truth with screen beauty Katherine Heigl – is currently filming a new flick with Jennifer Aniston in New York.

He was recently snapped dumping the former friends star in the boot of a car during on of the scenes for The Bounty.

The pair have denied reports linking them romantically.
