Joaquin Phoenix’s enormous meltdown last yr was some sort of Sacha Baron-Cohen type experiment. The knowledge simply these days obtained right here out that Casey Affleck is purchasing round a documentary of Phoenix’s momentary “retirement” from film and descent into an ill-advised rap occupation. That doesn’t present that it was all a rip-off, merely that Phoenix’s conduct is suspect in gentle of the film. One different large weblog linked to Lainey’s story with the title “Joaquin admits it was all a hoax.” The issue is, that was merely Lainey’s opinion and he or she was clear about that, and neither Joaquin nor his brother-in-law Casey (who’s married to Joaquin’s sister, Summer season) have admitted to one thing. I like how Lainey outlined her place on the matter and he or she has some glorious components. However I really feel the choice continues to be out on Phoenix’s intent and it’s unknown whether or not or not he was pulling some massive stunt, whether or not or not he really had some type of breakdown he (seemingly) recovered from, or if the fact is someplace in between.
