Joaquin Phoenix apologizes to Letterman on last night’s “Late Show”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Joaquin Phoenix returned to David Letterman’s “Late Show” last night – the scene of the “crime” and the start of the actor’s publicized (but bogus) meltdown – and apologized for his behavior.

“You’ve interviewed many, many people and I assumed that you would know the difference between a character and a real person,” Phoenix said to Letterman, who may or may not have been part of the joke being played by Phoenix and his brother-in-law, Casey Affleck, with the documentary “I’m Still Here.”

“But I apologize,” Phoenix added. “I hope I didn’t offend you in any way.”

Gone was the long beard and dark sunglasses, the thousand-mile stare and the stammering, the hostility and the act. Referencing Phoenix’s bizarre 2009 appearance, Letterman said it was “like you slipped and hit your head in the tub.”

But Phoenix confirmed that having himself humiliated was part of the plan.

“We’d hoped to come on a talk show, and I was looking for a beat down, and I got one,” he said with a laugh. “I want to thank you for that.”
