    Co-writer and director James Mangold said that Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon developed a very codependent relationship during filming. According to him, after the filming wrapped, Phoenix admitted to him that he and Witherspoon had relied on each other so much that they made a secret pact. The deal was that if one of them left or dropped out, the other would leave as well.

    Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon performed all of the songs themselves, without being dubbed. They also learned to play their instruments (guitar and auto-harp, respectively) from scratch.

    When Johnny Cash wakes up on the tour bus, just after the Folsom Prison performance, he walks past guitarist Luther Perkins, who is passed out with a lit cigarette in his mouth, and puts the cigarette out. Perkins died a few months after the "At Folsom Prison" recording and performance. He fell asleep in his Tennessee house with a lit cigarette in his mouth, and died from injuries sustained in the resulting fire.

    During one scene, Johnny Cash is high and performing "I Got Stripes", he walks right up to June Carter and glares at her for an uncomfortably long period of time on-stage. According to co-writer and director James Mangold, this was unscripted and improvised by Phoenix and Witherspoon. Mangold said that he simply told Joaquin Phoenix to do what he would do in real life if he were angry at his girlfriend and then had to perform on stage with her. Much to Phoenix's surprise, this backfired and Reese Witherspoon responded to his actions by simply rolling her eyes, and continuing to perform the song. Phoenix later said that her reaction threw him off because his goal had been to make her as uncomfortable as possible on-stage.

    The film was screened for the inmates of Folsom Prison, thirty-eight years after Johnny Cash's landmark performance.

    Johnny Cash approved Joaquin Phoenix to play him in the film because he liked his performance in Gladiator (2000). June Carter Cash also approved Reese Witherspoon for her role in the film.

    The scene in which Johnny Cash pulls the sink off the wall was not scripted; Joaquin Phoenix actually pulled it off the wall.

    According to James Mangold, when Joaquin Phoenix was learning how to sing and play guitar like Johnny Cash, his voice was too high and the band learned how to play Cash's songs in a higher key. Just before filming started, Joaquin's voice dropped closer to John's level, and the band had to re-tune their instruments the original key.

    Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix were so nervous about having to sing that it caused tension in their relationship off-screen. Both admitted in interviews that they didn't get along and constantly argued during the six months of singing lessons prior to filming. It wasn't until filming started that they connected and became friends.

    Waylon Payne originally auditioned for the role of Waylon Jennings. Co-writer and director James Mangold was so impressed by Payne's audition that he cast Payne as Jerry Lee Lewis. Interestingly enough, the actor who got the role of Waylon Jennings was Waylon's own son, Shooter Jennings.

    June Carter Cash died before production began. Reese Witherspoon's research included looking through Carter's closet for inspiration.

    When James Mangold asked Johnny Cash what his favorite film was, the singer replied Frankenstein (1931), "because it's about a man made up of all these bad parts and yet he still tries to do something decent and be someone decent."

    In the 1956 Sun Records recording of "I Walk the Line," Johnny Cash flubs the final low note ("because you're MINE"). Joaquin Phoenix flubs the same note, in the same manner, in the film, as he sings "I Walk the Line."

    The screenplay was sent to Joaquin Phoenix on a Friday. He called James Mangold on Monday morning, asking what he needed to do to play the part of Johnny Cash. Mangold told him to go out and buy a guitar, which Phoenix duly did the next day.

    It took four years for the producers to secure the rights to the story from James Keach, who is a friend of Johnny Cash and his family. After Keach agreed, it took another four years to get the film made.

    Towards the end of the movie, Johnny tells his dad to tell the girls about the flood. This is a reference to a real incident in Johnny Cash's childhood when the family farm flooded that he wrote and sang about in his famous song "Five Feet High and Rising".

    Kathy Cash, Johnny's second oldest daughter with his first wife, Vivian, walked out of a family screening of the film five times. She felt Phoenix and Witherspoon performances were "Oscar-worthy", but that her mother, Vivian, was cast in an unfair light. Also, she did not feel there were enough scenes of Johnny interacting with his children, and that the film portrayed her father too harshly. When her half-brother, John Carter Cash (an executive producer of the film) was asked about her reaction, he responded that the movie was intended to tell the love story between his mother and father.

    June Carter Cash's and Johnny Cash's only son John Carter Cash plays an uncredited character in the film, and served as an executive producer.

    Joaquin Phoenix wears fifty-six different costumes. All were designed by Arianne Phillips following meticulous research within the Cash family's archives and fans' private collections.

    Reese Witherspoon And Joaquin Phoenix Had Problems While Making 'Walk The Line'

    Biopics are very unique films, as they give audiences a chance to connect with an iconic figure in a way that they might not have before. Performers and bands like Queen and Ray Charles have been given the biopic treatment, and their amazing movies helped their legacies grow even more after becoming hit films.

    During the 2000s, Walk the Line, a biopic about Johnny Cash, became a huge hit, and Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon were excellent in the film. Working together, however, was not always easy, especially when learning to sing and play like Johnny and June Carter Cash.


    Let's take a look back at how the actors prepared for Walk the Line and how they learned to work alongside one another to help make the film a hit.

    'Walk The Line' Was A Hit Film

    Back in 2005, Walk the Line made its way into theaters with a ton of hype behind it. The film was set to be a biopic about the notorious Johnny Cash, and director James Mangold had himself a star-studded cast who were ready to drop jaws with what they were doing in front of the cameras and in the recording studio.

    Starring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon, Walk the Line was a commercial success that grossed over $180 million at the box office. The film received an exceptional amount of critical acclaim, as did the lead performers who each found themselves up for an Oscar. Witherspoon would take home Best Actress that year, which furthered her legacy in Hollywood.

    Overall, the movie was quite an achievement, and even now, people love popping it on and watching it all over again. It's a good thing that the film was a hit because there was a ton of work that went into making it happen.

    Phoenix And Witherspoon Had To Take Singing Lessons

    Fans always get to see the final product when enjoying a movie, but what they don't see are the months and sometimes years of preparation that go into bringing a movie to life. Everyone involved puts in the time and effort, and for the actors, they really need to bring their A-game, especially in a biopic.

    For Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix, transforming into an iconic country music duo required a ton of preparation, including taking singing lessons so that they could get close to sounding like the real deal. It's rare that an actor nails the singing of an icon, but these two did a heck of a job in Walk the Line.

    According to Country Rebel, "Phoenix and Witherspoon did all their own singing in the film. They even learned how to play the instruments their characters played. Phoenix learned to play the guitar in the unique Cash style and Witherspoon learned how to play the auto harp."

    Talk about going the extra mile!

    All of this is great, but the truth is that the work that went into making movie magic was intense. It even led to some clashing between the film's stars.

    It Wasn't Easy Working Together

    According to Witherspoon, "It took us about three months to trust each other because we didn't know each other at all in the beginning and we couldn't even look at each other when we had to sing to each other because it was so embarrassing. I'd sing too loud and he'd say, 'It's driving me crazy, she's singing too loud. Does she have to sing so loud?' I said, 'I'm just trying here!' It took about three months before we responded to each other's work and saw improvement. It took a long time before we really felt comfortable with each other."

    There is already a lot of pressure when it comes to making a movie, but taking on iconic country music figures adds a new level to it all. It sure sounds like it wasn't easy to prepare for this film, and we can only imagine what it was like having to go through these rehearsals with a total stranger.

    As tense as things were between them while gearing up to film, they eventually settled into a groove together.

    "'Don't beat yourself up, you're doing a really good job.' We really leaned on each other and became close in that way," said Witherspoon.

    At the end of the day, all of the hard work that went into making Walk the Line paid off, as the film was a hit that earned its stars immense amounts of critical acclaim.
