Eva Mendes' stupid ass said in an interview that working with Joaquin Phoenix on "We Own The Night" was "kind of like working with a puppy dog or a 2-year-old." Don't mess with a man on the sauce.
And of course Joaquin had to fire back. He said, "Had I known I was supposed to be a puppy dog, I would have been much more cute and more consistently attentive. My apologies, Eva, but I had a few other scenes that you weren't in. This puppy dog had a lot of work to do."
That was actually kind of nice of Joaquin! I mean he's known for blowing his top, so I'm proud of him. He should've said. "Well, working with Eva was like working with puppy shit! Except puppy shit has more personality and talent."
