Just when you think Joaquin Phoenix has gone off the deep end, he shows you there are still a few more feet left for him to dive…literally.
While ‘performing’ at LIV nightclub at the Fountainbleau in Miami, Phoenix began exchanging insults with a paid actor fan near the front row.
“Phoenix [told] the heckler, ‘I’ve got millions of dollars in my f**king bank account. What do you got?’”
I am guessing the heckler retorted “self respect and a working shower” because Phoenix then jumped from the stage and began punching the man who has suspiciously not yet pressed charges. Someone may want to remind Phoenix that the money he earned making “Walk the Line” was blown on beard combs and rubber-bands for his hair.
Naturally while all this was happening, Phoenix’s BFF Casey Affleck was in the wings filming his documentary. Not wanting to chip a nail on his recently manicured hands, Affleck kept filming as opposed to rushing in to help, adding even more fuel to the theory that Joaquin is merely doing this for sport.
