Joaquin Phoenix was a no-show at the premiere of a documentary by Casey Afflect called "I'm Still Here." Phoenix is the subject of the film.
"I'm Still Here"
According to Time Magazine, the film's premiere took place this afternoon at the Venice Film Festival's public showing, and Joaquin Phoenix was clearly missing.
Joaquin Phoenix has been "clearly missing" in the eyes of many since he opted to publicly denounce movies, grow a wealth of facial and head hair and state he was about to become a rap artist. That strangeness was usurped only by his bizarre appearance on David Letterman's late night show, when he showed up looking hairy and rather withdrawn. His behavior was practically a state of incoherence. Letterman ended his show that night saying, "Joaquin. I'm sorry you couldn't be here tonight."
