Joaquin Phoenix to Quit Acting
Joaquin Phoenix is ready to call it a career.
The two-time Oscar nominee dropped a bombshell to Extra, announcing that his recently wrapped film Two Lovers, with Gwyneth Paltrow, will be his last.
"I want to take this opportunity... also to give you the exclusive and just talk a little bit about the fact that this will be my last performance as an actor," he said. "I'm not doing films anymore."
And it doesn't seem like he's joking either. Phoenix's rep confirmed the news, stating, "That is what he told me."
So what does retirement from the silver screen mean?
"I'm working on my music," the (former) actor, who turned 34 on Tuesday, said.
Phoenix has been collaborating with Tim Burgess on an album since the spring.
What do you think of Phoenix's news? Should he stick to acting, or should he give music a go?
