He might be teetotal now, but that isn't stopping Gerard Butler sticking to a fun-filled nightlife.

The 300 actor was seen cosying up to models Karolina Kurkova and Petra Nemcova at the The IWC and Finch's Quarterly Review Annual Filmmakers Dinner, held at Hotel Du Cap-Eden Roc in Antibes last night.

Looking dapper in grey suit and white shirt with light grey tie, Butler smiled widely for the waiting photographers as he posed with some of the world's most beautiful women.

Former Victoria's Secret Angel Kurkova looked stunning in a backless black dress for the occasion, while Nemcova opted for a plunging red gown to show off her enviable curves.

And Gerard wasn't the only Hollywood heartthrob at the event, as he was also joined for dinner by stars including Ewan McGregor, Adrien Brody and esteemed actor Robert De Niro.

But while the champagne was flowing at the star-studded event, Gerard, who has only recently come out of rehab after seeking treatment for addiction to prescription painkillers, stuck to the soft drinks.

According to sources at the event, Gerard went for his own form of fizzy drink – thanks to a retro SodaStream machine inside.

Apparently, Gerard was seen letting one lady have a sip of his drink, before leaving with her a few hours later.

A source told The Sun: 'He got a few strange looks, but had no qualms sipping drinks from the SodaStream while everyone else was swanning about with glasses of expensive booze.

'But the lady seemed very impressed by his down-to-earth nature.'

It was recently reported that Gerard is in advanced talks to star in action thriller 'Manhunt'.

According to reports, the 42-year-old actor is negotiating a role for the film that sees a team of FBI agents going after their most wanted man, domestic terrorist and survivalist James Tollan, in the North Carolina wilderness.

The movie is expected to start production at the end of the year.
