Csilverman Hero Blog Post 1

The hero that I looked up to especially more recently was Gerard Butler specifically for the movie 300. Although he was a very talented actor in various movies such as Law Abiding Citizen and the Ugly Truth, the movie 300 to me was different on a completely different level. Obviously if anybody has seen the movie you know that each actor in that movie had a physique that was absolutely incredible. Really strong arms, chest, abs etc you really learn to respect what some of these actors must do outside of the set just to try and fit there role as best they can. Gerard Butler who was already a great actor had to work with Mark Twain who is a known workout specialist to try and help him become as strong and ripped as his spartan character was. The workouts caused Gerard Butler to constantly be puking, and also made him sacrifice his natural eating habits and was forced to go on a very strict diet for several months. This relates to me because I have been a serious tennis player for my entire life but before I got to college I didn’t have the proper physique and fitness that was required for me to really be a top college player. Over these last couple years at college I have worked harder then ever to try and achieve my goals and have worked my way up to being ranked number 21 in the country in division 1 tennis. Overall Gerard Butler was someone that I found to be a great hero with all of the hard work and dedication that he put in to the movie 300.

    That was a very interesting connection between yourself and the character from 300. He was a physically gifted person who demonstrated a strong sense of hard work. I am able to see a clear connection, as I am also on a sports team and understand the hard work and sacrifices it takes to having great success. He also is very respected amongst people which is a great attribute for a hero.
