Will Joaquin Phoenix Follow in Brother River’s Path? Watch Joaquin’s Bizarre Appearance on David Letterman

If you haven’t checked it out yet, CLICK HERE to see Joaquin Phoenix’s bizarre appearance on David Letterman. During the interview, Joaquin Phoenix seems inattentive and even unintelligible at times as Letterman becomes increasingly agitated. At one point, David Letterman calls Joaquin Phoenix out because he is chewing gum during the interview, at which point Joaquin proceeds to take the gum out of his mouth and stick it under Dave’s desk.

Some people say it’s all a hoax. Yet, others fear that Joaquin Phoenix may be following in the footsteps of brother River Phoenix whose life was cut short due to a heroin and cocaine overdose at the age of 23.

Joaquin Phoenix was with his brother at Johnny Depp’s nightclub, The Viper Room on Saturday, October 30, 1993, when River began to vomit and have a seizure. When Joaquin Phoenix helped his brother outside to get some fresh air, River collapsed on the sidewalk. Surgeons at Cedars Sinai Medical Center spent twenty minutes trying to resuscitate him but were not successful.
