joaquin phoenix
A couple weeks ago we reported that I'm Still Here star Joaquin Phoenix was slated to join Leonardo DiCaprio in the Clint Eastwood biopic, Hoover. The actor was rumored to play his right hand man and lover in the film. Could you imagine Leo and Joaquin going at it? It's an interesting concept (and visual) but it's not happening. Eastwood has...

Yesterday we posted a teaser for Joaquin Phoenix's highly anticipated return to the "Late Show with David Letterman." To say that his last visit was horrible would be an understatement. It was NOT must see TV, and it was pretty hard and uncomfortable to watch. Thank God, Phoenix stopped taking those crazy pills and is back to his clean shaven, nicely dressed self. We missed...

He's back! Joaquin Phoenix has returned to the controversial stage of "Late Show with David Letterman." The last time the actor appeared on the program was in early 2009 while at the peak of his I'm Still Here insanity. He was heavier, shaggier, and as receptive as a brick wall in conversation but that's all changed. Now that his movie is in theaters,...

Clean Cut Joaquin Phoenix
It was recently revealed by director Casey Affleck that his documentary I'm Still Here that focuses on the wild and crazy life of Joaquin Phoenix was all a lie. That's right it was fake. Phoenix hasn't retired from acting, he just put on one, if not the greatest performance of his career. So we're not surprised that Vulture is reporting that he may join the cast of...

I'm Still Here Screencap
Do you remember when Joaquin Phoenix was a young, talented, and handsome Oscar nominated actor whose career was on the incline? If so you must also vividly remember when all that went to crap after he stopped shaving, combing his hair, or exercising in any capacity. His new disgruntled look was only mirrored by his equally strange behavior and on the outside none of us had any idea what he...

Deadline New York has just broke the scoop that Casey Affleck has officially completed the mockumentary he directed about his brother-in-law Joaquin Phoenix's metamorphosis from actor to hip-hop musician. For the past year or so it's been hard to tell if Phoenix has completely gone mad or if he's actually been doing it all for a film - if so this may be one of the best films ever created. After...

[youtube HXpYk7WGN5Y 570 420] This is one of those moments that make staying up late to watch the frequently mind numbing Letterman completely worthwhile. Watch as Joaquin Phoenix mumbles, grumbles and gets angry in what is likely one of the most awkward and delightfully uncomfortable interviews to date. I wouldn't want to talk to Letterman either and this interview was...

All of them are at different stages in their careers, with different reasons behind their decisions, but they all agree on one thing, they want out of the biz.

Here is the video of Joaquin Phoenix officially announcing his leave from acting. Despite what other rude reports are saying (LatinoReview - See you in a few years Joaquin, when you realize nobody remembers you and your music career consists of you opening for Clay Aiken or Aldo Nova at the county fair.") I'm guessing by the sound of it, that Phoenix thought about this long and hard and didn't...
