Joaquin Phoenix Brings His Bearded Freak Show To Letterman

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / February 12, 2009

Last night formerly super hot Joaquin Phoenix made a really bizarro appearance on David Letterman, and generally came off like a zonked out, frowning weirdo. Here’s the thing. I think it’s all a stupid “celebrity punking the media” publicity stunt to go along with his bogus fore into rap music. After all, Casey Affleck is doing a documentary on him and maybe that documentary is going to be called, “HAHA Suckers!” This is the dude that decided to go by the name Leaf for, like, a decade.
