Frequently Asked Questions.
I also have to comment on the "Point of No Return" number. And neither of them lost a stitch of clothing. Well, accept maybe a cape and a mask. So he lived in a sewer and had a little anger management problem.
We could have worked through it with a good therapist. I mean this guy gave Christine what every hot blooded woman wants: Total and obedient worship. Am I right girls? Anyway to all you naysayers, I say this movie would have been nothing without him. To tell you the truth I kept wondering, "Who is this guy, where did he come from? So I did what the rest of you do and looked him up on "imdb.
Since then I've seen his other film roles, to be honest the films weren't that great, but that's not his fault. You've got to take what you're offered.
So I just have to note another of his astonishing talents: I swear he changes with every role.
His voice and his face, even his body molds to whatever character he's playing. I cannot believe that he is not up for Best Actor, or that this film is not up for at least ten Oscars.

Incidentally, I shall be boycotting them this year, and I urge you to do the same. Compared to this film, the rest is just drivel. Butler is an amazing actor. I'm so glad Mr. Schumacher had the tremendous insight to cast him.
I hope now he will get the roles he so richly deserves. I'd pay admission to watch that man walk across the street. I can't believe he'd never had a voice lesson before. I hope he does more recording. I still can't get those songs out of my head, got the CD and still can't stop playing it. You must embrace it on it's own turf.
All I Ask Of You
If you haven't seen it yet, you've missed something extremely special. You know it was funny - there were no pleasantries. I was vocalising with the accompanist and he just walked into the room and sat down in front of me and said, "Shall we? Okay, that must be my cue. You sang at The Metropolitan Opera earlier in your career so that must have stood you in good stead I had classical training but I don't consider myself an opera singer though, and this is more a hybrid of pop and classical music.
I basically developed the character from my imagination. Then I went underneath the opera house and hung out in the lair and there is actually a lake underneath and it's dark and foggy so it's really kind of scary down there. I went to the Musee d'Orsay and looked at Degas' paintings of ballerinas to learn how to stand like them.
Was there a sense of camaraderie on the set?
So much so and that's amazing because on some sets, people don't get along very well at all. Here we spent so much time together - eight months of our lives almost - and it was so great because we all got so close and that really made us not afraid to improve with each other. We could just back up the scene and throw lines out there to see what happened and Joel was really encouraging of that as well.
You sing pretty much all of the dialogue. How do you keep the performance from becoming too theatrical?
Because that was the most important thing to me. When I talked to Joel about it I said that the one important thing for me was that she is the one real centre in all this theatricality. She has to be like a real girl who is compassionate and loving and somebody that people can really relate to.All I Ask of You - 2004 Film - The Phantom of the Opera
She's lonely and wounded and very vulnerable and it really is a story about people at the heart of it all. It is very grand and sumptuous and awesome to look at but it was really about the characters for me. Did you have some trepidation about carrying the weight of this film?
It was very heavy on my shoulders. But Joel gave me so much encouragement and telling everyone how great I was going to be that, on the one hand, it put even more pressure on me, but on the other hand it gave me the confidence to make those emotional leaps that the character has to go through.
