No. That was all rumors. She said the fans -because of phantom-wanted them to be a couple but she and gerry were like brother and sister.

'I have not met the one princess yet,' said the year-old star of the movie version of The Phantom Of The Opera. Enlarge. Gerard Butler (L).
I can't believe the comments I've seen on his singing.
His voice was beautiful, sensuous, and the amazing thing was his singing matched every emotion he was feeling from highest to lowest. In the beginning we see a very confident, strong, domineering individual partial to strangling people when cornered, not the most sympathetic of individuals, who nevertheless shows a sensitivity and sweetness despite all of his extremely fatal faults; that is, in the more than competent hands of Gerard Butler.

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. Her performance as Sean Penn's daughter in the drama Mystic River was described as "transfixing" by the New York Times and she more than held her own in the big-budget disaster epic The Day After Tomorrow. She laughs when she recalls her singing audition for Lloyd Webber in his New York apartment.
I went in and started vocalising with the accompanist and Andrew walked in as we were preparing. He didn't say hello, didn't introduce himself and just sat down in front of me and said, 'Shall we? Then he stood up and said: It was so powerful and so frightening.
Lloyd Webber's great Phantom gamble
Though he had landed several leading roles, they were in turkeys such as Dracula and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life, and he had failed to make much impression in Hollywood. But he didn't give up. He had sung with a rock band called Speed and when he heard that Schumacher was considering him for the Phantom role, he immediately hired a voice coach.
Although he was so nervous his legs were shaking, he passed the test.
