Hollywood actor and film producer Gerard Butler updated his Instagram feed with a TBT photo of himself that sees him portraying ‘Beowulf,’ in the Canadian-Icelandic fantasy film ‘Beowulf & Grendel’ to express what 2020 made him feel.
Alongside the photo, in which he is seen with long messy hair, and wearing a steel-made war armor, the Empire Award-winning actor wrote:
“This photo summarizes 2020 for me.”
Then Butler, whose latest movie, ‘Greenland‘ was released on December 18, clarified how his character depicts 2020:
“Haven’t got a decent haircut in months. Ready for battle. Wearing armor. All that’s missing is a mask!“
Even though his post is both hilarious and right-to-target, almost all his followers preferred to focus on the movie itself and Butler’s hairstyle; they left numerous comments to say that he made great in the movie.
