Devastated Gerard Butler has vowed to rebuild his Malibu home after it was ravaged by the Woolsey fires.
The 300 actor – who isn’t staying at the property – told how he has helped neighbours who have been left without homes.
When asked if he was going to rebuild the property, he said: “Yeah, I love my place, I’ve put a lot into it.”
He insisted he was “ok” despite losing his home and possessions.
He said: “I’m ok, I’m ok. I just came from my property and it could have been worse.
“A lot was damaged but to be honest I feel bad, all down there in the gully is gone, there are so many communities here, trailer parks and suburban working class houses that are completely destroyed, people have lost everything.
“We have some of them staying at our house right now. Its just really sad, people give their lives to get to a place like this and all their belongings.”
The star added: “I have lost a lot of belongings but I haven’t lost everything.”
When asked if he managed to get anything from his house, he said: “No, no I didn’t. No because the fire started at a Thousand Oaks which is 16 miles from here. It started on Thursday night. We heard there was a fire there.”
Gerard is now teaming up with local community leaders to raise money.
He said: “We are doing some community fundraisers to help those that are more struggling than others.“The community here is so tight, that’s what I have to say. It’s amazing to see, even when I came here on Saturday when the fires had happened and how many people had struggled to get back in.
“We went round neighbours and helped fight some fires, some of the flames were still going. It’s been amazing joint effort.”
