We all thought that Joaquin Phoenix was a drugged-out mess when he appeared on David Letterman’s late night show looking scraggly in 2009 and announced he wanted to be a rap star.
Now RumorFix has the truth thanks to a reliable source.
Casey Affleck, who directed I’m Still Here starring Joaquin Phoenix, now tells the New York Times that Joaquin’s downward spiral was just an act for his movie.
But it seemed too real for people and the movie is getting bad reviews.
“The idea of a quote, hoax, unquote, never entered my mind,” Affleck said.
