Scotsman said to be keen on the actress

Gerard Butler has reportedly been trying to woo Kate Hudson.

The pair are said to have hit it off when they met at a Hollywood party in January.

‘He’s been calling and texting to ask if they can meet when she’s back in LA,’ a source tells the Mail On Sunday.

‘She’s playing hard to get, which makes him keener.’

Gerard, 40, has also been linked to Jennifer Aniston, 41, his co-star in The Bounty Hunter and Jessica Simpson, 29.  

Kate, 30, split from US baseball player Alex Rodriguez in December.
