The latest Lawyer Could-Have-Been is studly Scottish actor Gerard Butler.
Butler earned a law degree from the University of Glasgow, and he worked briefly at a law firm in Edinburgh until the acting bug bit.
Butler starred as King Leonidas in “300” and was the Phantom in the 2004 film version of “Phantom of the Opera.” Other starring vehicles include “P.S. I Love You” and “Law Abiding Citizen.”
A regular in the tabloids, Butler has been linked to a string of actresses/celebrities, including Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, and most recently, Lindsay Lohan.
It’s a fair bet that he wouldn’t have dated any of those women if he’d stayed at the law firm in Edinburgh…
