Joaquin Phoenix Confirms His Hollywood Departure

Posted: November 4th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Joaquin Phoenix Confirms His Hollywood DepartureSubmit Comment
Joaquin Phoenix appeared at the premiere for his latest film "Two Lovers" on Saturday, with the words" Good Bye" written on his knuckles, confirming the surprise announcement he made last week about quitting acting. "I think it's just moving on. It's rediscovering something else," said Phoenix.

"Two Lovers" is his last film, he said. His publicist had disclosed Friday that the actor intended to focus on music.

Phoenix first mentioned his decision to "Extra" early last week at a fundraiser in San Francisco. He abruptly ended that interview after the reporter wondered whether he was joking about giving up acting for music.

Phoenix learned to play guitar and did his own singing to play country legend Johnny Cash in "Walk the Line," which earned him an Academy Award nomination. His publicist also said Phoenix has been directing music videos in recent years.

"It's like greener pastures, you know what I mean?" Phoenix said Saturday. "And so, I'm just going to try and like, I'll just be doing the other thing. ... Hopefully, I will emotionally impact you with that, as well."

Let the man have his music. Don't be pissy because he wants to branch out. Him and River had a love for music in their younger years that surpassed their desire for acting in films...but River couldnt do it, because of haters who think that Rap stars should act but movie stars can't sing. Let's hope Joaquin has better luck. He has the talent- so let's wait to hear him before being our usual pissy cynic selves.

It's like saying, "A man who entertains- couldn't possibly entertain us."
