Joaquin Phoenix on David Letterman Video

September 23, 2010

We have the Joaquin Phoenix on David Letterman video from the September 22nd, 2010 appearance here. And upon watching his nutty interview with the talk show host last year, we have recently found out that Letterman was also in on the I’m Still Here hoax. Read more and see photos here!

The Joaquin Phoenix on David Letterman video, September 22nd 2010 clears up a lot of rumors that many have been speculating. Was the big fat furry beard hanging off of Phoenix’s chin a symbol of a celebrity gone mad or simply a man who is just creating a place for bird’s to build a nest?

In the interview, Phoenix apologized publicly and to Dave for his erratic behavior telling the host “You’ve interviewed many, many people and I assumed that you would know the difference between a character and a real person, so – but I apologize. I hope I didn’t offend you in any way.”

Letterman’s response to Joaquin’s apology? “Oh, no. Oh, no, no, no. I’m telling you, it was so much fun. It was batting practice, you know what I mean? Every one of them was a dinger. I was looking for a beat down, and I got one… I want to thank you for that.”

I want to thank Joaquin for shaving off that big bush off his chin. He showed up to his Letterman appearance clean-shaven and acted like a semi-normal human being. So I think it is safe to assume that his desire to become a rapper was also fictitious and now just a distant memory?

Check out the Joaquin Phoenix on David Letterman video from September 22nd, 2010 below and let me know what you think. Were you surprised to find out that Joaquin’s I’m Still Here documentary (produced by Casey Affleck) is fake?

    Great stunt by Joaquin. He had everybody fooled. Don’t miss the great character ‘Toby N Tucker’ in the Oliver Stone movie ‘U-Turn’ starring Sean Penn, Jennifer Lopez, and a ton of other stars. Excellent site. Take care.
