“Paul called me Bubbles on the set. Bubbles was Michael Jackson’s pet monkey, and I was Paul’s pet monkey. The key to Freddie is an animal, just pure id. For the scene where he’s arrested and put in jail and all that, I just watched videos of wild animals that get into suburbia. If you’ve seen video of a deer or a bear that finds its way into suburbia and the cops have to tranquilize it, it seems as if the brain stops working. If they’re cornered, they’ll slam into walls, or one leg tries to go left while the other is going right. It’s complete fear and chaos. They can’t control themselves at all. That was the key to Freddie. And Paul certainly called me his pet monkey.”

– Joaquin Phoenix on preparing for the role of Freddie in “The Master.” I’m so excited to see this film. I’m also excited that JP is over and Joaquin is back. He’s a transformative actor. [Time]

So maybe while you’re blowing your refined bubbles, you’ll trigger your scent memory as well, and take a trip down memory lane. [$18, Neiman Marcus] Keep reading »
