Gerard Butler certainly has his opinions. The "Phantom of the Opera" star blabbed that he originally hated the script for his upcoming film "Beowulf and Grendel," derived from the 11th-century Old English epic. "Actually, I thought the script was a piece of [bleep]," Butler informed a crowd at Italy's Capri Hollywood Film Festival. "Then I read it again. I got to see the location and hear the music. And, I saw the helmet that I could wear." The Scottish star accepted the role soon after. To hell with centuries of literary tradition - we'll take a cool helmet any day.
