    I sincerely hope he's putting on an act.



  2. 2

    1st!



  3. 3

    Total Weirdo



  4. 4

    My husband thinks he is pulling an Andy Kauffman. We both watched it on TV and it was really and truly weird! I think he might of been drugged up AND acting. He was slurring a lot.

    Bizarre



  6. 6

    I wasn't sure it was an act til the very end-when he took off his glasses and shook Dave's hand. But why? He looked like a dumbass.



  7. 7

    ahahahhaha



  8. 8

    wtf



  9. 9

    ahhhhhhhh



  10. 10

    TEAM RIRI



  11. 11

    He's totally changed! wtf…

    wasnt he a totally respectable actor??

    and now a rapper apparently??



  12. 12

    I feel awkward just watching it!



  13. 13

    what?? um….ok lol.



  14. 14

    i adore joaquin, he's merely responding to the fact that everyone's treating him like he's stupid or on drugs.
    he's neither! he's amazing, absolutely charming, fun, and polite to be around.

    I don't know, other gossip websites have said Joaquin has substance abuse issues again. What a horrible interview. I would've cut to commercial early and booted him. I hope Dave never invites him back to the show.



  16. 16

    OMG I saw that on TV. He was insane…at first i thought he was joking around..but then he almost walked of stage twice and swore at Dave's sidekick!! It was very very weird..kinda creepy!



  17. 17

    the vid dont work no more



  18. 18

    first.

    hahaha…. definitely acting. He acted messed up for half of it, but not the other. He's been acting like a whacko lately. Crazy Joaquin.

    What Asians REALLY wanted!!!

    A Los Angeles woman has filed a class action suit against Miley Cyrus, claiming she mocked Asians in a recent photo by slanting her eyes. Price tag: $4 billion.
    Lucie J. Kim claims to represent more than 1 million Asian Pacific Islanders who live in L.A. County. Kim claims when Cyrus posed for the photo, she "knew or should have known that her image would be publicly disseminated via the media, which Cyrus knew focused on her private life, specifically TMZ."

    I totally saw that one coming… they are not offended, they just want the money… poor losers!



  20. 20

    WTFFFFF



  21. 21

    he's totally acting
    it's insulting that he's faking a drug problem for attention, and doesn't even act it out well
    lost all respect

    22

    wow he was wasted on either A) coke or B) speeded out

  23. eri says – reply to this


    23

    I love him!!!!1

  24. slope says – reply to this


    24

    look at him grind a way …. he may be mashed on e as well …. he is messed up regardless of what he is on … he is on something!



  25. 25

    Anyone else getting the message that the video can't be viewed from their country? I'm in Canada. Put up another version of the video, Perez!



  26. 26

    Dude is clearly a hot mess.

  27. chloe says – reply to this


    27

    he's acting - he was smirking and trying to hold back smiles when David was joking with him.



  28. 28

    hahahahah he looks homeless…



  29. 29

    OMG he's so last year. I'm over him.



  30. 30

    For months, Joaquin has purposely been trying to get people talking/buzzing about his bizarre behaviour (the horrible "rapping", etc). It's all an act for the mockumentary he's filming. What a waste of time even talking about it.



  31. 31

    its JOAQUIN not JOANQUIN fucking dumbass



  32. 32

    Faking or not, he was extremely rude. Why bother indeed.



  33. 33

    HAHAHAHAHAHA holy shit i am laughing so hard right now omg omg omg that HAD to have been a joke! like wtf was that shit! hahahahahahaa



  34. 34

    ITS ALL A BIG JOKE…..Hello…..Joanquin had a hard time holding in the laughs at some points !!! Even Dave was in on it, especially by his FARRAH FAWCETT comment at the end, HELLO….Farrah was joking as well with her appearance !!!



  35. 35

    He's a fucking idiot. Okay first of all, he WAS acting. No doubt about it. He took off his glasses and shook Letterman's hand at the end. If he was pissed at him (like he was going to kill him) he wouldn't be so "friendly" after the whole interview. He is the biggest dumbass and an attention whore. To be honest though he would have to be on drugs to actually make the stupid ass decision to be doing the act he's been putting on for a while. And I've had a hard time with drug addiction myself and NEVER acted like that. Who the fuck acts like that when their buzzed? He would be MUCH happier and not angry if he was actually fucked up. ATTENTION WHORE!



  36. 36

    Perez, here's my theory. He read your book, and he's testing things out to see how it works out!



  37. 37

    If this is a joke, he'll never be taken serious again. I tend to think the drug area.



  38. 38

    acting
    it's not even funny…it's almost insulting because it's so blatantly unconvincing. stop wasting your time and go back to doing what you do well: making good movies…and being hot (i.e., shave off that nasty scruff)



  39. 39

    First: His name is Joaquin not Joanquin…
    Second: You can totally see how hard he tries NOT to laugh…
    Third: Don't get why the ppl kept laughing that was idiotic!
    Fourth: Mmmm poor Letterman I think it's the first time I saw him speechless…



  40. 40

    I was embarrassed for him. He looked ridiculous. I'm not sure if he was acting or not.

  41. C- says – reply to this


    41

    I think it was an act. It reminded me of when Crispin Glover was on Letterman in 1987. If you haven't seen it, You Tube it. Glover was so crazy Letterman had to leave in the middle of the interview. Tragic.

  42. HB says – reply to this


    42

    There is no way that is an act. I can't believe he put his gum under Dave's desk!! SO disrespectful! Please go to rehab Joaquin, I love your (acting) work!!



  43. 43

    Letterman: I'll come to your house chewing gum…
    Lol a classic!



  44. 44

    psh bad joke



  45. 45

    Joanquin Phoenix is doing a Documentary film about this wack character he himself created.



  46. 46

    i really hope so



  47. 47

    definitely acting–he's trying to pull a Borat, but I think the cat's out of the bag…



  48. 48

    big yawn….

  49. 49

    Uhhhhh, yeah, totally on something…



  50. 50

    DUDE, i don't know man. it's tough to call. i want to say he is just joking. i hope he is just joking. i like him a lot better doing this stuff!!

    ACTING



  54. 54

    I think he was totally acting!!! LOL!!!! I hope, the jaw rolling had me for a sec, but he is a method actor!! He knows what he was doing!



  55. 55

    He was funny as hell, I dont know why David had to act annoyed.



  56. 56

    the best was at the end when Dave said "we owe Farrah Fawcett an apology", remember that interview?
    I just hope Joaquin isnt taking the same path as his brother! There is no need to waste talent.

  57. ??? says – reply to this


    57

    He was f*cked up on something definately. Hollywood and fame have ways of turning people slightly crazy and I think this is a prime example. No matter how good of an actor he is no one in their right mind would put on an act like that and knowingly make people think they haven't showered in months and are heading in a downward spiral like that. Watching it it's like his brain turned to mush..he looked like he was on heroin. You people are stupid of thinking this is all just a silly little joke I think there is a serious problem here



  58. 58

    Its called SHOW business for a reason. They were both making a good show.



  59. 59

    He's hilarious. What a fabulous actor. Still can't believe Reese Fing witherspoon won the Oscar and Joaquin didn't. He was way better than her lame ass in that movie.

    "do i have a frog in my hair?" rotflmao!



  60. 60

    Acting or not I LOVED when Letterman said sorry you couldn't be here tonight!!



  61. 61

    i honestly think he is on drugs i don't think that was an act he looked nervous and completely clueless letterman just had em on the show to make an a*s of joanquef also his brother died of an overdose at about the height of his career.



  62. 62

    acting or not, being bizarre just isn't a real enjoyable to watch. maybe time for a new character…or therapy. people will watch a train wreck happening, waiting for the shocking site…but come on, that's sad.



  63. 63

    He aint acting… dude is f*cked up



  64. 64

    I dont think he's acting, and what AN ASS Letterman is, seriously, what a piece of shit, always insulting his guests and making them feel uncomfortable.



  65. 65

    we watched this tonight… it was very awkward. letterman was awkward…

    hopefully he's not being serious.



  66. 66

    It's very obvious he's acting.



  67. 67

    wow.
    what a waste of 5 mins of my life. geezzee dude has lost his damn mind!



  68. 68

    It should read 'alleged'…come on, obviously it's acting! We know he's making a mockumentary…come on now….oh and dont forget Crispin Glover on Letterman decades ago….that's what this is…stop being so guillable!



  69. 69

    Pretty sure he was acting..they were a pretty funny comedy duo there.lol He is a great actor, maybe he just wanted to act like his brother for Dave?Ouch huh?



  70. 70

    Oh, whatever. He's definitely acting. You can tell because he's not that believable in the beginning. He does, however, become progressively more believable later in the interview.



  71. 71

    They were both acting like weirdos, but Letterman was the asshole.



  72. 72

    He and his brother are making a documentary.

    This is totally staged.

    It already leaked out.



  73. 73

    I think he's acting but he's starting to lose it for real. golden Globes 2 years ago he looked like he was on some shit. That was the start I think.



  74. 74

    haha love it! that was totally acting, pretty good acting indeed



  75. 75

    COMPARED TO LASKANKA JOAQUIN (NOTE CORRECT SPELLING) CAME OFF AS A RHODES SCHOLAR!!!

  77. 77

    Aww man. I think that Letterman is kind of an a-hole but Joaquin does seem to be messing with him a bit. It was ridiculously awkward and funny!



  78. 78

    I think he's taking his cues from Zach Galifianakis, only he's not funny…

  79. j2 says – reply to this


    79

    oh what happened to him. i hope he was acting…if not that is just sad. he's such a good actor but this behavior is just wierd.



  80. 80

    ewww if he's going for dreads he should at least do them right his hair is just matted. It looks disgusting. Even my dog bathes more often than this has been

    Dave is a real "Asshole". He could have been quick witted and made jokes without attacking Joaquin for being different. Also, what's with the judgmental audience? Why can't Joaquin like and perform rap? I heard him rap and he's really good!!!

  85. 85

    Yes it does feel like he is acting when Dave Letterman said "I wish Joaquin Phoenix were here tonite." He actually smiled and then controlled himself again. Clearly Joaquin Phoenix is acting !!

  86. Bucky says – reply to this


    86

    Acting? I guarantee he wasn't acting. What happened was he thought he would be nervous doing the show, so he got drugged up to make himself less nervous, but the drugs ended up making him more nervous….and the result was a trainwreck. He's probably got a pretty bad drug problem right now. Acting??? How could this possibly help his career in any way?



  87. 87

    Who cares? He's an ugly loser… NEXT!!!



  88. 88

    im scared for him.



  89. 89

    media attention good or bad is still attention….



  90. 90

    I think he is serious. He was looking very irritated and it didnt like like acting to me. I wonder what the hell made him turn into such a freak



  91. 91

    when are people realizing that he is making a film?????

    ofcourse its acting , and its brilliant

    just wait till the flick comes out



  92. 92

    I can see him smirking, too. Trying to hold back laughter. I don't know what to make of it. No way he's starting to take himself THAT seriously. You go on a talk show to be kind of funny and entertaining and promote your film. If you don't want to do that, you just don't go on. He knew what he was doing. He's fucking with all of us.



  93. 93

    umm…. THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE!!! I was such a fan of him :(
    this is INSANE!!!



  94. 94

    Omg, best part is 3:20 when Letterman can't take it anymore.

    Definitely acting. If it really does turn out someday that he's not, I'll be highly shocked. God, that was funny!



  95. 95

    i HOPE he is acting.. he is just too talented to be messed up :(

  96. sej says – reply to this


    96

    He kind of reminded me of some Andy Warhol interviews…. Andy Warhol sometimes messed with the person interviewing him and would say the plainest, shortest answers he possibly could to every question. It's quite hilarious.



  97. 97

    Re: sassafras – I have been thinking the same thing!! hahah total Andy kauffman!! right on!



  98. 98

    lolol idk before i saw this i was like, what a dick, but now that its clear hes acting, im back to awwww



  99. 99

    wow….i just really hope he is acting….and fuck….if hes so druged out…lol….make fun of his dumbass…rich prick



  100. 100

    This HAS to be an act. Joaquin can't honestly think he'd make a half decent rapper or that he looks passable with a beard and mustache. This is so over the top it has to be a gag. However, it's a stupid joke and it only appears to be hurting him. I seriously hope this act disappears fast and is just that. The thought of losing two Phoenix acting geniuses is far too much for me to bear.
