The 300 actor has been hospitalised following the incident...
ActorGerard Butlerhas reportedly cheated death in a freak surfing accident.
The P.S I Love You star was shooting scenes for his new flick, Of Men And Mavericks - which is based on the life of late surfer Jay Moriarty - when he was forced under water by some huge waves at Mavericks on the San Francisco coast.
The 42-year old was then admitted to hospital following his terrifying ordeal, with pro surfer Frank Quirarte telling The Mirror: "Butler was held down for a solid two-waves and took 4 or 5 more waves on the head,"
"He was then washed through the rocks before he was finally plucked out. He had that 100-yard stare that surfers get after a near death experience."
Quirarte added: "Waves were running at 12ft, but some large ones had got through."
It is thought that Butler stayed overnight at the Stanford Medical Centre over the weekend, with his current condition still unknown.
Get well soon Gerard.
