Did you see Joaquin Phoenix bizarre interview on Letterman?

Did any of you see it...the beard and the way he was acting...was way bizarre. And poor Joaquin...he doesn't seem to catch on that David Letterman was making fun of him.

If you missed it, here it is on youtube.

  • Ok, i just watched it on the morning news and I swear he was messed up on something. That was just really odd behavior. Didn't his brother die of a drug OD? I sure hope he's not following suit. But he just acted so strange about how he was just done acting and all of a sudden he's a singer. I mean he had the weird stoney rocker wanna be look but it just isn't him. I'm wondering(hoping) that he is putting on an act for some new movie he's gonna do!!! He is just to damn fine to do this look and behavior to himself.

  • Yes I did! Is he depressed about a change of his career or on herion? It was a pathetic interview. I think Letterman handeled the situation quite well.
    Joaquin needs a PR specialist and an appointment with a psycholigist!
    Maybe he needs to check into Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. He would make in interesting new client.

  • Their parents and all the kids were part of "The Family". River is one of a LONG list of suicides from children of the family. ALL those kids were messed up by adults for years. Read about the Ricky Rodriguez story. The Book of Davida. God knows what happened to all of them, so no surprise that he's acting off. Probably flashbacks. Poor guy. Glad he's still alive he is a great actor. He nailed The Man in Black. Hope he gets help. I've got to go watch the video now...
