Joaquin Phoenix Is Sporting A Fascinating Look For New Film

When it comes to Joaquin Phoenix, I would hit it anytime, anywhere, anyplace. As a puberty-ridden teen in “Parenthood” (in which he was credited as “Leaf Phoenix”)? So cute. As a murderous lover in “To Die For”? Swoooon! As a lovesick neighbor boy in “Inventing The Abbots”? Fucking obviously. As Johnny Cash in “Walk The Line”? How is that even a question?! And as his rapping alter ego JP in “I’m Still Here”? Yeah, even then. So what do I think of his latest look, for the Paul Thomas Anderson film, “Inherent Vice”? It’s different and a little shaggy, but, mmmm, gimme some of those mutton chops. What can I say, I’m hooked. [Photos: INF Daily]
