Actor Gerard Butler is lucky to be alive! The “Chasing Mavericks” star revealed to “Extra” that he nearly died while making the surfing movie. It happened when a set of waves pulled him underwater, dragging him over deadly reefs.
“It went from that stage of, ‘this is scary’ to ‘wait a minute…this is getting to be too much’ and then you start going ‘this might be it,’” Butler told Jerry Penacoli.
