Joaquin Phoenix Documentary Isn't Going To Make Any Money Real

Say it ain't so, Casey Affleck! Say it ain't so!

Looks like this is a week of closure for Affleck. First, he settles his sexual harassment lawsuits, and now he's finally admitted to the world what we already knew:

The Joaquin Phoenix Documentary, I'm Still Here, is fake!

Even Joaquin's bizarre Late Show With David Letterman interview was staged. Here's what a writer from the show, Bill Scheft, had to say about it:

"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."

Guess we've gotta give credit where credit is due. Admittedly, there were a few points where we weren't even sure what the deal was with this movie…BUT now we know and the magic is gone.

Good Night Crazy Joaquin Phoenix, and flights of Afflecks sing thee to thy rest!

Will U still see I'm Still Here, now that U know it's all a hoax?

    Punked, but it wasn't funny.

    Joaquin Phoenix, RIP. Not many folks would have been interested if it WAS real.

    I know you're a little green under the gills, but "This is Spinal Tap" was a mockumentary, and those of us that were around when it came out were aware of the fact and it didn't piss us off. We also didn't believe that "Being John Malkovich" was real either.

    I have no clue what your problem is with this. Nobody else is surprised that it's a mockumentary. You must be the last one to figure it out. Oh wait, you had to be told.

    I'm a huge fan of Joaguin, but don't really see the point of this movie. The whole concept is a bit sad and pathetic. Still love him though!

    You weren't sure??? Because your fucking stupid. Any fool that thought he was giving up acting to become some sort of recluse rap star is so fucking stupid, it's a wonder they've survived this long without accidently killing themselves. What a moron, how in god's name(who doesn't exist) could you think for a second it was real. Just emphasizes your utter and complete cluelessness.

    Gross



  9. 9

    OMG I read about this yesterday, how are you still relevant? you can't even do your job



  10. 10

    he's an actor for a reason………and that's not to become a hip hop star………..



  11. 11

    It does look sort of funny but I don't think I can waste 2 hours watching it.



  12. 12

    hoochpit. Um, shut the fuck up, God does exist, and you're going straight to hell. Moron.

    Anyhow, I think it would have been more fun if people didn't know yet. Yeah everyone had their suspicions but weren't 100% sure, like the oh so brilliant hoochpit. It kinda makes me not want to see it now.



  13. 13

    OF COURSE THIS SHIT WAS STAGED. WHOEVER TOOK THIS SHIT FOR REALZ IS AS CRAZY AS LADY CACA SNORTING COKE! OHH, THAT IS REALZ… SMH.

    This actually makes me wanna see it!

    I really wanna see it. I think it'd be definitely interesting.

    I LOVED this film. It was nearly perfect but it wasn't supposed to be. I will see it again. It was brave. It was the anti-hollywood thought process. In the vein of Andy Kaufman yes, but also had a trajectory of Hunter S. Thompson going on. Ultimately for me it was about Joaquin's catharsis creatively and a new understanding of himself and what he could lose if he stepped forward in a direction away from everything he had already achieved. This is a commonality amongst anyone who believes in art and is trying 'leave their mark'. Well done chaps!… SEE THIS FILM!

    I also believe that Joaquin Phoenix is THE choice to play John Belushi in the Todd Phillips biopic. This is guy you want. When he was on stage in Miami performing - I saw the Belushi in him from his days doing the Lemmings tour all the way to the early 80s in Hollywood. Joaquin can do this. Fuck typecasting.

    Anyone who did not realise this was a joke is a COMPLETE MORON!
