JOAQUIN PHOENIX: ‘YOUTH PROMISE ACT’ ACTOR

Posted in Heart Phoenix, Joaquin Phoenix, Rain Phoenix on September 2, 2010 by fadedblog

So much for the whole disheveled aspiring rapper thing!

Joaquin Phoenix was looking every bit the movie star that he is as he attended the Youth Promise Act benefit at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood on Tuesday (August 31).

Joined by his sister Rain and his mother Heart, the 35-year-old actor was on hand to bring attention to a bill that will provide resources to communities to engage in comprehensive prevention and intervention strategies to decrease juvenile delinquency and criminal street gang activity.

Meanwhile, Joaquin’s rap upcoming documentary, I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix, is slated to appear in theaters September 10.

When the Casey Affleck-directed flick was first shown to potential buyers, they were still reportedly uncertain whether it was a serious documentary or a mockumentary after seeing “more male frontal nudity than you’d find in some gay porn films and a stomach-turning sequence in which someone feuding with Phoenix defecates on the actor while he’s asleep.”
