In by far one of the weirdest interviews Letterman has ever conducted, Phoenix appeared detached, aloof and at times irritated during a seven-minute sit-down that had the audience rolling and Letterman searching for some way to get meaningful answers.
Was it all possibly a put-on by the talented actor? Not likely. It's hard to imagine anyone going in front of a national television audience and purposely making himself look that bad. But then again, Hollywood is Hollywood. One never knows.
Phoenix came out dressed in all black, with long hair, a shaggy beard and wearing dark shades, sort of like a Blue Brothers get-up on steroids.
Rest of that article here.
Watch the interview here or here.
Srsly, how freaky is that? I mean, he obviously doesn't want to be there in the first place, but there's seriously something else wrong with him. It's scary to see him that way. I mean, this guy rocked in "Gladiator," "Signs," "Walk The Line," "The Village" (well...), etc.. This is just so bizarre.
