Joaquin Phoenix’s much anticipated documentary is a hoax. I know, I know – shocking! A little over a year ago it appeared that Joaquin Phoenix had fully hopped down the rabbit hole of lunacy, appearing on talk shows looking disheveled and saying he was becoming a hip hop star.
more Phoenix after the hop…
We all knew that Casey Affleck was taping the whole thing for some sort of documentary, so it seems a little…fishy. And it was! The whole thing was an elaborate hoax.
“That was all an act… Think Andy Kaufman without shaving. That’s what he was doing. And Dave knew about it and Dave loved it because he could play along. He could do whatever he wanted with it. And he did, and it was great television. But I will take credit for the line, ‘I think I owe Farrah Fawcett an apology.’ I gave that to him during the break.”
No big surprise. Did you buy it or did you know (like us) all along that it was a big sham?
