Video: Joaquin Phoenix Quits Acting

Video: Joaquin Phoenix Quits ActingSubmit Comment
At a fundraiser for the late Paul Newman's charity on Monday, Joaquin Phoenix (Gladiator) told Entertainment Television that he will no longer act in movies, and instead will focus on his music career.

"I want to take this opportunity... also to give you the exclusive and just talk a little bit about the fact that this will be my last performance as an actor... I'm not doing films anymore," said Phoenix of his latest film "Two Lovers." "I'm working on my music. I'm done. I've been through that."

And the news has been confirmed by his representative, who says, "That is what he told me."

Phoenix's brother-in-law Casey Affleck, who is married to Summer Phoenix, insists the star is for real: "I don't think he's kidding. He's got music and stuff."

Phoenix's vocal skills were applauded in 2005 when he recorded the soundtrack for the Johnny Cash biopic "Walk The Line," in which he also starred. His efforts won him a Grammy award, and he is now working on an album with British rocker Tim Burgess from The Charlatans.

I'm not surprised. Him and his brother both had great talent as musicians- in fact its one of the reasons that led to Phoenix's overdose: No one takes you seriously when you're an actor wanting to move to a guitar- so I hope people get behind him when he has something to show.

Bullsh*t. If his music career flops he'll be the first to jump to some primtime sitcom or dramatic cop show on NBC.
