Heigl, Butler part of hotel evacuation

Movie stars Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler were among hundreds of people evacuated from a Los Angeles hotel because of a bomb scare, a witness says.

An unidentified witness told People magazine the 27 Dresses actress and 300 actor, along with 400 other hotel guests, were told to leave the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles Saturday to allow police to investigate the unfounded scare.

Heigl and Butler were at the hotel promoting The Ugly Truth, their movie about an unlikely romance between a male chauvinist media correspondent and his female producer.

The witness said Butler posed for pictures with AC Milan soccer team members following the evacuation.

Police told People magazine the investigation was prompted by a threat from a telephone caller.
