Hollywood action hero Gerard Butler is used to saving the day in movies such as 300, Olympus Has Fallen and Geostorm.
However, even he could not save his home from a fast-moving wildfire in Malibu, California, joining a list of celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Guillermo del Toro who have been affected by the fire.
Butler, 48, said in an Instagram video on Sunday (Nov 11) that his home was "half-gone" amid footage of smoke rising from the debris, which included the burnt shell of a car.
"Heartbreaking time across California. Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters. Thank you @LosAngelesFireDepartment," wrote Butler.
