Joaquin Phoenix: One Joke Over the Line?

Joaquin Phoenix At fist, ’s startling announcement, appearance and actions were shocking - suddenly and without warning he grew a bushy beard and said see ya to the industry that made him a star. Upon announcing he would no longer be acting, Phoenix stated that he would now be focusing on his music.

When the media and the fans actually heard him perform, suddenly Phoenix’s act started to become funny. He won laughter when he appeared on Letterman and became a winning Oscar joke thanks to Ben Stiller a few nights later. But now, many think Phoenix is taking things way, way too far.

Many have said the Phoenix career switch-up is all a hoax, part of some sort of promotional effort for a documentary which, it’s said, is being created by and Phoenix.

Joaquin Phoenix

When Academy Award nominee announced his retirement from film, the news came as a bit of a shock. When he further stated that he’d be eschewing screen fame for the music industry, it was quite a surprise.

But when we heard him perform, everyone began to wonder if perhaps Phoenix wasn’t as serious as he originally sounded in his statement. Surely a guy with his acting chops can’t hope to survive on bad raps!

Now, new rumors are coming to light in this odd little acting/rapping melodrama. Some say Phoenix is working with on a documentary which films the actor’s odd behavior (including his Las Vegas performance, which ended with Phoenix falling off the stage).

A source with no name told very plainly that Phoenix himself stated, “It’s a put-on.” As in, one big hoax.

Is it?
