Gerard Butler put ice down his underpants in a desperate bid to cool down while shooting Olympus Has Fallen.

Gerard Butler put ice down his underpants to cool off.

The Hollywood hunk claims it was so unbearably hot while shooting terrorist-attack flick Olympus Has Fallen in Louisiana, a state which boasts excessively hot and humid summers, he packed his underwear with ice blocks to lower his body temperature, a trick he learned while making 2003 movie Timeline.

"Here's a trick I use: put ice on the balls. I learned that on Timeline, which was shot in Montreal when it was nearly as hot. We put packs of ice down our underwear.

"I don't think it’s good for the reproductive system, but it cools down your whole body. And focuses the mind, shall we say,” he laughed.

Despite the 43-year-old actor risking lasting damage for the sake of his craft, he says the trick didn't quite work since the gruelling shoot still left him gasping for breath and bathed in sweat.
