Joaquin and Gwyneth Premiere Lovers After Disastrous Letterman Interview

Gwyneth Paltrow and Joaquin Phoenix posed together on the red carpet at a Ferragamo and Cinema Society hosted screening of their new movie Two Lovers in NYC last night. Gwyn had on another daring outfit while Hilary Duff was happy to be there. Joaquin managed to suit up for the cameras including that of Casey Affleck who is still documenting Joaquin's recent career change from acting to rapping. Earlier in the evening Joaquin stopped by Letterman, though he wasn't much up for chatting. You have to see it to believe it — video after the jump — Joaquin barely answered anything Dave asked which left the talk show host in an awkward position. At one point Phoenix put his gum on the underside of Dave's desk. Joaquin has made it clear he's not messing around with his new rap career, though he might want to think about his interview strategy if he wants to be taken seriously.

silvers567, i'm not quite clear on what you're trying to say. but if there is confusion on how HE pronounces his own name here's an excerpt from an interview: Interviewer: "Lets get this over with, then: how exactly do you pronounce your name?" JP: "It's Waa-keen."

what a douchebag
Silvers567 Silvers567 8 years
Because he speaks English. I know many Jessica's who pronounce their name Shesica because they know now better :) Anyway, it's just a silly pet peeve of mine.

If they were saying his name wrong he would have been told them how to say his name!

No, it doesn't. It's my first language. J doesn't flow into anything. It's a more raspy, guttural J. It's now Uaquin, or Waquin, or Guaquin like many say it (I've also heard Guan). http://www.elearnspanishlanguage.com/sounds/jesus.wav there is a nice lady saying "Jesus!" (apparently she must have seen Joaquin's antics too :P)

Umm..seriously Silvers567? It's spanish. J pronounced like H...flows into the other letters here and becomes silent.
Silvers567 Silvers567 8 years
Why do people insist on pronouncin his name "Waaaaaquin"??? There is a J at the beginning, and let me clue you in, it's not silent!

I am liking Gwyn's hair a lot lately, but her outfit? Not so much! Especially those darn leather shorts. Yuck.

I didn't watch the video for fear of second hand embarrassment. I did, however, watch Two Lovers last night on HD NET movies and it was very good. Predictable ending though.

Isn't Joaquin known for hating interviews and all other kinds of attention?? Why he's there, beats me.

I think it's all a big hoax. I think he's taking a page out of Andy Kaufman's book and pulling off a giant prank. Awkward and weird, sure, but interesting to watch.

YIKES! I just watched it and he was a mess but the audience was laughing at him the whole time even when he didn't do anything!

"i almost have to feel bad for his wife and family since he's just ODD. " ilanac13 what are you talking about? Joaquin is not married and he doesn't have any kids.

If its an act, I really don't get it. Who thinks acting like a jackass is a good career move, other than Andy Kaufman.

Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

"I think I believe the rumor that this is just some project or something weird like that. If not, uhh he needs some kind of help." Me too. If not, he has to be on drugs or something!

What has happened to him?? That was painful. I am glad Dave continued as he did. Why did he agree to an interview if that's what he was going to do?? :headsmack:

Well, Joaquin, you continue to confound me. I don't know if he's just f-ing with us or if he's nuts. But props to Dave: He is truly a professional.

That was really hard to watch. I might be alone in my opinion, but I thought Letterman acted like a jerk. Joaquim wasn't the easiest guest granted, but Letterman's snipey comments didn't help the situation. Neither of them put their best foot forward for this one.

LMAO...it's a JOKE! Do you really think Casey Affleck would be following him around, not helping him, watching his demise if it wasn't???

This video is not available in your country or domain. That's what I got when I tried to watch it. I'm actually kinda relieved now.
