Joaquin Phoenix is retiring from acting. His new career is Drugs -- I mean Hip Hop.
"why are you laughing at me?" The interviewer can barely hold it together.
This is him on Letterman last night. The interview is so strange and bizarre. At first it seems like J. is just playing for laughs but it then it becomes clearly evident that Joaquin is NOT in on the joke. Again the audience starts to laugh just like the reporter in the previous clip when he mentions hip-hop/rap. Other highlights: J putting his gum under Dave's desk, then taking it back just before the clip from his new movie begins. And of course the final quip, "Joaquin, I'm sorry you couldn't be here tonight." Wow. Any guesses as to what drug he is on?
As a sidenote? Have you seen the clip of him rapping? His new career is already underway. I've heard better from Vanilla Ice impersonators in malls.
This is a good lesson for all of us childrenz. Say no to drogas perjudiciales; that's harmful drugs if you're nasty.
