Looks like Joaquin Phoenix is trying to toughen up his new hip-hop image.
Shortly after taking the stage at a Miami Beach night club, Phoenix had words with a heckler and jumped into the audience to confront the man, according to The Associated Press. Phoenix appeared on stage smoking a cigarette, dressed in a disheveled suit and sporting his now trademark beard early Thursday morning. He began rapping unintelligibly, but soon became agitated and addressed a member of the audience.
"We have a f---ing bitch in the audience," Phoenix said, adding later, "This is a $3,000 f---ing suit," according to Us.
Phoenix then jumped into the audience...
Patrick Swayze slammed the National Enquirer over "inaccurate" reporting about his battle with pancreatic cancer.
Reacting to an Enquirer cover showing pictures of the Dirty Dancing star looking gaunt, with the headline "The End," Swayze told People he's responding well to new treatment.
"It's amazing to me that the tabloids, such as the National Enquirer, print such negative stories about me and my health when there are so many positive things going on in my life right now," Swayze said. "I've started a new chemotherapy and, once again, I am one of the lucky ones with pancreatic cancer that is responding well to the treatment."
Among the things Swayze has going for him are ...

Stephen Colbert's shamelessness is out of this world.
Though he was unable to get his fake presidential campaign up and running, The Colbert Report host is now encouraging fans to write in his name for NASA's online vote to name a new addition to the international space station, according to The Associated Press.
As of Tuesday, Colbert — who already has an ice cream flavor, a Hungarian bridge and an eagle named after him — leads the public poll with 115,000 votes. His closest competition is ...
Tween queen Miley Cyrus has written songs about her broken heart, but in her new autobiography she writes about an actual heart affliction.
Cyrus has a condition called tachycardia, which causes her heart rate to speed up. "The type of tachycardia I have isn't dangerous," she writes in her new book, Miles to Go. "It won't hurt me, but it does bother me. There is never a time onstage when I'm not thinking about my heart."
The book also ...
With all the fuss about Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning role as the Joker in The Dark Knight, it's easy to forget that the masterful performance wasn't his last. But the joke may be on fans who want to see the final frames of Ledger's career.
Ledger died on Jan. 22, 2008, in the middle of shooting Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, a fantasy about a travelling theater troupe. Ledger starred as a con man named Tony. Rather than let Ledger's death end the production, Gilliam completed the film using Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell to play different incarnations of the character. But even after all that, the film still has some obstacles to overcome before it can hit the big screen.
Parnassus, a $30 million production, has yet...
Julianna Margulies and George Clooney
George Clooney is notorious for on-set pranks, but he let his costars off easy during his return visit to ER's County General.
"There were none," Julianna Margulies told Us. "We shot everything in two days. We had no time. He was on a film schedule. I was coming from New York, and I had a baby to get back to, so there was no time for pranks."
Even without the jokes, Margulies, who played Clooney's love interest from 1994 to 2000, said she was happy to be back ...
Melrose Place fans are divided over the casting of Ashlee Simpson-Wentz in the show's upcoming CW reboot, but those who are angry have one person to blame: Bronx Mowgli.
The singer-actress took the gig to remain close to her three-month-old son, according to People. "She wanted something stable so she could be close to her baby," a friend of Simpson-Wentz said. "She was specifically looking for something in television as her next step, that filmed in Los Angeles, so she wouldn't have to be away from Bronx."
So is Ashlee giving up music for good?
Glenn Kessler, Damages
Damages fans have been slowly putting together the pieces of Ellen's hostage-at-gunpoint flash-forward all season, and when the final piece falls into place, big changes are coming.
"There's gonna be some major, major upheaval in Patty's life, and Ellen has some coming in her life as well," cocreator Glenn Kessler says. "The ground is going to shift considerably. Many of the things we've proposed throughout the season certainly do get knotted up, and these women end the season on very different ground than they started."
But Kessler doesn't get to just write the twists and turns heading Ellen's way — he literally plays a role in them as FBI Special Agent L.J. Werner. Along with his partner Agent Randall Harrison (Mario Van Peebles), Werner has been working Ellen as an informant against her boss. But Patty may not be the only one with secrets to uncover.
For weeks, we've seen ...
