The star, who has been in films including Phantom of the Opera, The Ugly Truth, and P.S. I Love You, took part in a kickabout in London.

He took the field to help the youngsters in Kennington, south London, for the Street League charity.

Butler, 43, is soon to be seen in new film Playing For Keeps in which he stars as a retired football star.

Earlier in the week he attended a gala screening of the film in London.

The movie - directed by Gabriele Muccino - sees him trying to rebuild his relationship with his son and ex-wife by coaching the boy’s football team, although he proves irresistible to the other mums.

It also stars Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman and Catherine Zeta Jones.
