Explaining that he always takes road trips after his films wrap, Gerard told DeGeneres that his latest adventure with his friend Freddy included a stop at a special dentist office.
Butler began, “We were in North Carolina, and we stopped at a 7-11 to get some refreshments, and we looked across the road. I said, ‘Do you see what I see?’ And there was a dentist named Gerry Butler.”
“So me and Freddy went across the road and Freddy knocked on the door and said, ‘Hi we have an appointment with Gerry Butler.’ And [the receptionist] asked, ‘Who are you?’ and I stepped forward and said, ‘I’m Gerry Butler!’”
“And I went in and met Gerry Butler the dentist, which was actually a big honor for me to meet him.”
