HOLLYWOOD star Gerard Butler swapped his millionaire lifestyle for a humble mud-walled schoolroom as he urged Scots to help end poverty.

The actor visited war-ravaged Liberia, one of the world’s poorest countries, to witness the work of international charity, Mary’s Meals, in West Africa.  Butler, whose credits include Law Abiding Citizen, 300 and Olympus Has Fallen has been a supporter of the Argyll-based charity for three years.  Mary’s Meals feeds and helps educate more than 820,000 children across Africa, including 111,551 in Liberia.Butler, 44, from Paisley, Renfrewshire, pitched in to help volunteer cooks prepare and serve up Mary’s Meals and give lessons to a class of orphans.  The star also played football with deaf youngsters, loaded a truck with sacks of rice, planted seeds at a school garden and danced with villagers.
