    Gerard Butler may not be in Italy celebrating Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake's impending wedding, but that doesn't mean he isn't over the moon for his Playing for Keeps costar's nuptials to the former boy-bander.

    "I'm very excited for her," Butler told me tonight at the L.A. premiere for his new surfer flick Chasing Mavericks. "Absolutely."

    The 42-year-old Scottish actor says he totally approves of Biel's soon-to-be husband.

    "I know Justin," Butler gushed. "He's a good dude. He's a great guy. Great guy and she's an exceptional woman. I'm very happy for her."

    Butler had nothing but nice things to say about working with Biel on their upcoming romantic comedy Playing for Keeps.

    "She's amazing," he said. "She's such a joy to work with. You have to be patient to work with me and she's patient. Her performance was incredible. Her comedy, her humanity, her warmth and just her talent. She's a great girl."
