Co-star from Playing for Keeps was the "one that got away" for Butler...
RadarOnline reports that the release of Playing for Keeps will be a bittersweet experience for star Gerard Butler since he reportedly dated co-star Jessica Biel and Butler considers her to be "the one that got away."
The report says Butler was scared off by Biel wanting a more serious commitment when they filmed the romantic comedy, and Butler apparently bolted. This is a decision he now regrets.
A source close to Butler says: "Gerard doesn't have many regrets but not treating Jessica with the respect she deserved while they dated is one of them. He genuinely believes she was the one that got away. Jessica liked Gerard a lot, she was into his boyish nature, but she wanted something more serious. She was ready to settle down. That's why after getting close on the set of Playing for Keeps back in 2011, their relationship soon fizzled out."
Butler is happy for Biel who is now married to Justin Timberlake since he knows they love each other, "but he still thinks he missed out. He just wasn't man enough to admit the feelings he had for her at the time," according to the source.
After a summer fling with Butler, Biel rekindled her relationship with Timberlake, and he proposed to her not long after.
