The 43-year-old has homes both in Los Angeles and in New York.
"I enjoy living in LA, but I also have a place in New York. Only I love New York so much that I don't get any work done. I can't get my head down and read scripts," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Butler as saying.
"I want to be out walking or going to the theatre. In LA you get disciplined - you train, you write," added Butler.
