People call him weird, but to me he seems more like a normal person than a celebrity.

Jaoquin is that rare actor who loves the art in himself and not himself in the art.

Fun fact: Johnny Cash personally asked Joaquin to play Johnny in the movie Walk the Line after he saw Joaquins performance in Gladiator.

That’s pretty cool how much Deniro inspired him as an actor and then he got to shoot him in the face in Joker

"There is no timeline for grief."

So true.

River was that dude, man. He had it. He really, really, really had it.

Author — Gary Wilson


If River were alive today,
he might be as big as Leo, Brad and Keanu.

Joaquin absolutely loves the art of acting and he’s a pro at it but he hates being a celebrity.

Anderson Cooper is the only person who could’ve done this particular interview. He and Joaquin both lost older brothers in traumatic ways.

True Story: in 1993 I was waiting tables at a vegan restaurant and I waited on River the night before his death, he came in around 5pm and ordered dinner and he was really high on something. He was nice and polite

Joaquin should have gotten an oscar for his performance in Walk the Line, Johnny Cash...brilliant

He’s battled so many demons. Personally I believe that some of the best actors are troubled souls. He’s a truly brilliant actor.

This is the difference between an actor and a movie star.

It's not that Joaquin Phoenix is a "great actor", he's actually in a completely different league.

Author — Licht Spiel


i just realized that his late brother was actually Keanu's best friend, right?

DeNiro meets a girl and touches her through a fence. Joachin's Joker meets Bruce Wayne and touches him through a fence.

I've never seen Joaquin talk about his brother before.... Til now

He sees the ridiculousness of celebrity, and it embarrasses him... I bloody love that.

Author — Strange Life with Mickey


Only 2 celebrity deaths have truly effected me: River Phoenix and Robin Williams. River--because he was the kind of guy I'd give my heart to and Robin--because I thought he'd be around still making me laugh, even as he and I got so old. Both of them carried a deep humanity in them that I found utterly precious. I still feel slightly crushed when I think of River--even so many years later.

Joaquin will deservedly win the Oscar for “Joker” this year, but I also think he should have won it for “The Master.” One of the greatest performances I have ever seen from ANY actor.
