What happened to Joaquin Phoenix?

Most people who keep up with such news probably already know Joaquin Phoenix announced his retirement from acting a few months back. If people were surprised by that, I think people are even more surprised with his change of personality (not to mention his change in looks). To be honest, I don’t exactly know what his personality was like before, but I don’t think he was quite like he is now. Psychologists have a field day with this stuff. My only question is: could this be nothing more than an elaborate acting experiment on his part? Probably not, but it’s possible. If you don’t know what I am talking about whatsoever, watch the following clip of Joaquin on David Letterman.

    yeah, that was totally an act (and quite a lame one). my guess is that he hates doing interviews (can't blame him), and arranged with Dave to do this silly one. i've heard before that he is majorly uncomfortable being interviewed, and you can really tell in some of his earlier interviews. he's all awkward and stiff and fidgety on these kinds of things. so, i'm sure he just thought this might be a little more comfortable – to see if he could get some laughs out of it. i have to say, for such an amazing actor, he is crap at improve. bless him…

    Really? You think it was that obvious? I don't know. Phoenix has been acting pretty strange as of late in other places. I found it rather convincing, but apparently you don't buy it. Interesting.

    Dude, wtf? No way that was legit. Unless, of course, he was high. I must say, either way, that was the most awkward thing I have ever seen.

    yeah, i'm so sure it's not legit. he may be eccentric, but he's not disengaged from reality.and the Ben Stiller thing was HI-llarious!!
