Joaquin Phoenix's act was a hoax!
Casey Affleck recently told the New York Times that Joaquin Phoenix's two-year descent into madness and his new documentary called "I'm Still Here" was a hoax. He said that, "It's a terrific performance, it's the performance of his career." He added, "Virtually none of it was real. Not even the opening shots, supposedly of Mr. Phoenix and his siblings swimming in a water hole in Panama. That was actually shot in Hawaii with actors. I never intended to trick anybody. The idea of a quote, hoax, unquote, never entered my mind." Affleck also said that Phoenix's bizarre performance on David Letterman back in 2009 was an act but he insisted that Letterman was not in on it.
