Joaquin Phoenix must've missed his morning shit the other day, because dude was in quite a mood. During a phone interview with New York's Time Out Magazine, Joaquin was asked how he prepared for a role in his new movie "We Own the Night."
That hot ass mess of a drunk said, "I never prepare. I think that's completely overrated. It's a very simple job. All you have to do is . . . stand in the right spot and say the line. So I don't really believe in preparation."
At least somebody around here speaks the truth! Time Out reminded him that he said he prepared for his role in "Ladder 49" by training with firefighters.
Joaquin responded, "I just said that because I thought it would sound good to the press. I don't know why it seems to be of note that actors do any kind of preparation. It's just what you're supposed to do in your fucking job. Do you think that because you did some research you deserve some special credit?"
He then hung up on her.
What a GRADE-A ASSFACE! It still turns me on. If Joaquin yelled at me and then hung on me, my genitals would probably explode. He's right though. Acting is easy. You show up, stand on the tape, say your line and then go play Xbox.
