Actor Gerard Butler was reportedly hospitalized in the Dominican Republic. Recent tweets reflect his philanthropic work in Haiti.


The Daily Mail reported the Butler suffered over 72 hours of abdominal pain before he was taken to the hospital in Santo Domingo.

Information coming out of the private health clinic claim that the Scottish actor has diverticulitis. This came after suspicion of appendicitis from doctors and an MRI scan.

Diverticulitis affects the large intestine by spouting bulges on the organ's inner lining. This results in inflammation or infection of the organ.

Luckily, sources like Pop & Arte and Graficas.com describe the illness as being "uncomplicated."

Butler, who has been stable for a few days now, should be released from the institution soon.

The "300" star was among many unfortunate persons who lost their homes in the California wildfires earlier this month.


The actor and producer posted a photo to Instagram in front of his destroyed property. But he didn't take the devastation too hard.

Instead, he thanked the firefighters for the work they are doing and called the event a "heartbreaking time across California."

He wrote:

"Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating. Heartbreaking time across California. Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters. Thank you."


Other stars, including Camille Grammer, Lady Gaga, Martin Sheen, Cher, and Miley Cyrus were affected by the fires.

Grammer's house was completely destroyed according to reports. Cher, Miley Cyrus, and Kim Kardashian were unsure as to the state of their homes.


Caitlyn Jenner was thankful when her home was spared despite the evidence that flames had surrounded her estate.

Butler has a new movie coming out in which he stars alongside Peter Mullan and Connor Swindells.

The trailer for "The Vanishing" gives the story of three lighthouse keepers who spiral into darkness when they discover a chest of riches. The movie comes out in January 2019.
