Don't know if any of you had a chance to catch Joaquin Phoenix's appearance on Letterman Wednesday night. I saw the tail end here in the newsroom and thought, "What is up with that bearded, scruffy look he's sporting?" When I got home, my husband had seen the entire thing and was wondering if it was real or some sort of act - even to the point he was wondering if the real Joaquin didn't show up and they had somebody dressed in a costume.
I found the following AP article about it:
NEW YORK (AP) _ Joaquin Phoenix's interview with David Letterman started off odd and ended in full-blown weirdness, instantly joining Farrah Fawcett on the list of late-night appearances memorable for the wrong way.
The actor briefly forgot the name of his ``Two Lovers'' co-star, Gwyneth Paltrow, stuck gum under the edge of Letterman's ``Late Show'' desk and appeared to swear at bandleader Paul Shaffer for laughing at him during Wednesday night's show.
Clips of the bearded, sunglass-wearing Phoenix were racing around the Internet on Thursday.
I found the following clip on YouTube. Check it out and let me know what you think.
