Gerard Butler wants to find someone to spend the rest of his life with
The `Machine Gun Preacher` star - who has previously been romantically linked to Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston and most recently model Sarah Carroll - is ready to settle down withsomeone special, but he admits he has had a great track record with his other relationships.
He said: "I would love to settle down and share my lifewithsomeone. But it`ll happen when it`s going to happen.
"When I try and plan things in my life they very rarely pan out. And it`s often when I think, `OK, you know what, I don`t want to be in a relationship right now for whatever reason`, that suddenly I find myself open to one and it happens."
However, the 42-year-old hunk has ruled out dating any of his co-stars because of previous bad experiences with on-set romances.
He added: "That`s a dangerous path. When you`re making a film withsomeone, you get to know them very well indeed, and it`s too easy to develop a sort of obsession with them that you think at the time might be love. But it isn`t.
"Earlier in my career, I had a couple of relationships with co-stars and both times it was a disaster. It burned itself out in the middle of the film and that is really, really uncomfortable, spending more than half your day working withsomeone you`ve just broken up with."
