Joaquin Phoenix announced last week that he’s quitting as an actor to focus on a music career. Anyway, there’s no way that is ever going to happen, unless Joaquin dies of a drug or booze overdose. According to Page Six:
The two-time Oscar nominee (“Walk the Line” and “Gladiator”) showed up to a tribute to Paul Newman last week in San Francisco and “was out of it,” said one attendee. Other actors were performing scenes and readings, but Phoenix just got up and walked out. “He wobbled back in a bit later, but it was odd,” said one source. “He was slurring his words and was unsteady on his feet.”
It looks like Robert Downey, Jr. changed places with Joaquin in the course of one week. Check out the new Hollywood idiot during Saturday’s premiere of Benicio Del Toro’s Che in the gallery below.
Get your act together man, you’re a good actor.
