Joaquin Phoenix has had enough of the film business and is ready to take on the music industry. I guess he took Walk the Line a little more seriously than we all thought.
Yesterday he spoke with Extra and told them, “I want to take this opportunity, also to give you the exclusive, and just talk a little bit about the fact that this will be my last performance as an actor. I’m not doing films anymore. I’m working on my music. I’m done. I’ve been through that.”
Ever since he won a Grammy for Walk the Line, he has been working on an album with British musician Tim Burgess.
His last film (or so he says) will be, Two Lovers, which co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow and is set to be released on February 13th, 2009.
