Joker's Joaquin Phoenix Curses Out Crew Member In BTS Footage

    Is Joaquin Phoenix a spoiled movie star… or is he pulling our collective leg once again?

    During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Phoenix was presented with an outtake from Joker in which he appears to go on a profane rant. Much awkward joking between Phoenix and Kimmel then ensued, and we're not sure exactly what to make of this for so many reasons.

    Phoenix and Kimmel were engaging in easy banter, the star appeared engaged and relaxed, and everything was going fine until Kimmel appeared to drop a pretty awkward bombshell. Specifically, he showed a clip from a supposed "outtake reel" courtesy of Joker director Todd Phillips that didn't exactly show the most flattering side of Mr. Phoenix. In the clip, Phoenix gaunt and partially made up is attempting to tap into his character, Arthur Fleck, aka the Joker. Unfortunately, this proves difficult thanks in no small part to the "constant whispering" of a crew member named Larry.

    Although it's not heard, it's implied that a man named Larry accuses Phoenix of being a diva by way of referring to him as "Cher," which irks the star even more.

    Phoenix then declares that he simply can't carry on, and walks out of the frame.

    When the interview resumes, Phoenix appears profoundly embarrassed, adjusting his tie and appearing to start sweating.

    He says that last part somewhat jokingly, and throughout, the audience is laughing along, giving him the benefit of the doubt.

    It's rather disarming and a little weird to see such a massively talented actor set completely off his axis, looking confused and mortified unless, that is, you're familiar with the months-long piece of performance art which Phoenix staged roughly a decade ago. In October 2008, Phoenix made the surprising announcement that he was quitting acting to focus full-time on music rap music, to be exact. He made good on his promise to become a rapper early the following year, with a debut performance in Las Vegas that was equal parts unintentionally hilarious and actually painful. Keep watching the video to see when Joker's Joaquin Phoenix curses out crew member in BTS footage.

      What does this comment mean... that you mean something opposite of the points which were made

      Ppl seriously do you really think a director would release this if it were real. It was all a joke to play off of everyone who says Joaquin is weird and emo. He is a special person who is just different from what ppl think the norm should be.

        Phoenix’s acting style reminds me a lot of Stanislavski’s practices. In which case I understand where he is coming from when he mentions, looking for real emotions/feelings and trying to focus on them.

                                      Even if it's real, is this really a big deal? I've heard people scream worse things to one another at Target. He dropped a couple F bombs...oh wow. People are so fragile and easily offended anymore. His comment regarding Cher was hilarious...makes me hope it is real just for that. Priceless. He's a great actor who deserves the freaking Oscar for this role. Moving on...

                                              I worked in a film production before. This clip is quite common. Happens all the time amongst film crew. When the work get tense, they’re swearing at one another, director, assistant director, producer, cinematographer, actors, on and on. To deal with, you can’t be too emotional about it when working on the set.

I’m pissed at Robert De Niro right now for his personal bull crap rantings and politics lately. But I can’t deny his acting skills. Never will. He’s always been great. Just shut the fuck up on your politics Lol. But I’m not going to talk shit on his performance in great movies he helped make great. Joaquin Phoenix is one of those. Great performance. I’ve never hated a role he played. Controversial or not. This happens. It’s a good movie. Sit back and enjoy and calm the hell down. I Blame actors who think they have a grand stand position in the spot light and stage to try to make people feel what they want and helping in this strange cancel culture. They aren’t and never should be that influential.
