    Default Joaquin Wants to Be a Rockstar (not an actor)_

    Joaquin Phoenix Shocks With Retirement Announcementby Matt McDaniel | October 29, 2008 Joaquin Phoenix, who turned 34 years old just yesterday, stunned E! Online reporter Jason Kennedy with the announcement that he would be retiring from acting. The two-time Oscar nominee stated this on the red carpet at a Monday benefit for the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps, a charity founded by Paul Newman.
    Phoenix said that "Two Lovers," his upcoming romantic drama with Gwyneth Paltrow and Vinessa Shaw, will be his final on-screen role.

    "This will be my last performance as an actor. I'm not doing films anymore... I've been through that. I've done it... I'm dead serious."



    Phoenix is apparently giving up acting to pursue music, a passion of his since he learned to play guitar to play the role of Johnny Cash in 2005's "Walk the Line." According to Billboard, Phoenix is working on an album with Tim Burgess, frontman for the UK group The Charlatans. Burgess said, "Once he learnt guitar he found that he had quite a lot of demons inside himself that he wanted to expel through music.
    Phoenix appeared at the charity event on Monday with his brother-in-law, Casey Affleck. Affleck is married to Phoenix's younger sister, Summer. In explaining his retirement decision, Phoenix said, "It's Casey's time now."
    Affleck confirmed for E! Online that Phoenix is telling the truth when he says he's leaving the acting profession, saying, "I guess he's getting into music. He's putting out an album." But both Affleck and Phoenix hurried away from the cameras without elaborating.
    "Two Lovers," Phoenix's final film, premiered earlier this year at the Cannes Film Festival to mostly positive reviews. Ray Bennett of The Hollywood Reporter writes, "Phoenix plays the romantic lead with great intelligence and enormous charm, making his character's conflict utterly believable." The picture is scheduled for release on February 13th, 2009. So far there is no word on when Phoenix's first album will hit shelves.

    He'll probably come back to acting once he realizes no one cares about him and his music

    just a general statement regarding the attention whoring nature of many actor types, to be fair, maybe he'll be good at music, I don't know

    I think he's a fairly decent actor though

    Ya never know, He did a great job in Walk The Line. He's no Johnny Cash but I have to admit Joaquin's versions were pretty damn good.

    yeah, i wasn't really specifically commenting on his musical prowess, for all I know, he could kick ass

    I was just stating that it's a very Hollywood thing to proclaim that you're "retiring" from whatever profession has earned you your fame and ability to venture into some new endeavor...only to realize that the reason many of them are actors is because they love the spotlight and people fawning over them...not all of course, but many

    I do wish him well though, he seems like a decent guy

    that's a low blow. I'm kinda bummed to hear Joaquin is calling it quits with acting. He has delivered some pretty impressive performances on the big screen and I thought he would only get better. If you haven't seen "We Own the Night" you should. Good flick, definitely worth putting in the NetFlix queue.

    its not a low blow, he should die for his fagginess.

    if he wanted to retire, he should just STFU and stop acting. then put out some shitty music. then OD.

    he shouldn't have made an announcement like that. it's like starting a thread on the coach board saying you're never coming back.

    it's better to just fade away.

    Maybe his music won't suck. Sometimes people surprise when they switch from what they are good and and do something totally different.



    Yea he should stick to acting.
