Welcome back, Joaquin - the real one!
But now .... 1.5 years later he got rid of all the hairy stuff and revealed that it was all a hoax. Something like "real live acting". Joaquin's buddy and brother in law Casey Affleck turned the camera on him doing weird stuff to create something like a persiflage / documentary on reality TV and star cult.
Think about it .... for almost two years he "acted" for every public appearance he did - from talk show interviews to the strange (and really bad) hip hop concerts he performed. That is CRAZY!
The movie is called "I'm still there" and is out in the theaters just now and I'll definitely go and check it out.
Although I definitely appreciate a good portion of crazyness, I am quite lucky to see Joaquin Phoenix being back to his regular self (and looks ;) ). At the video below you can watch him explaining the whole thing by himself.
Good to have you back, man!
PS: I tried to find credits for the two shots of Joaquin Phoenix, but there were none on the websites where I found them. Both as far as I could find out are part of the promotional material for "Walk the Line" (the first shot) and "I'm still there" (the second shot).
