Fixed Joaquin Phoenix with cigarette in mouth It's hard to tell what's real and what's fake when it comes to Joaquin Phoenix. Remember four years ago when he went on The Late Show with David Letterman and pretended to becoming a rapper and he was actually shooting a mocumentary. And, on Monday the Walk The Line actor did it again -- he went on David's show and announced he was engaged to his yoga instructor. Just hours later on Good Morning America, Joaquin admitted it just a joke. His rep confirmed the news: “No he is not engaged. Joaquin has an extraordinary and spontaneous sense of humor." Now the 40-year-old is spending Tuesday on a press tour trying to explain the hoax -- no one thinks is funny. When appearing on Live with Kelly & Michael, he said about David Letterman, “I did not play a prank on him — he knew that I was joking around. Did I say that? I was in bed too, I was getting ready for this show. I have no idea what I said.” He also revealed he doesn't even do yoga.
