Okay, that’s not actually a direct quote, but it might as well have been.  Whether it’s drugs, anxiety, or just another tragic case of Christian Bale Disease (extremely over-inflated sense of self-worth), Joaquin Phoenix put on quite a show on Letterman last night.  Then again, maybe that’s just it; it’s all an act.  Is Phoenix the one that’s really laughing here?  Very well could be, but who cares.  For now, I’m just going to assume that he takes himself this seriously, it makes it so much better.  I’m also going to assume he’s an ass, which may be true regardless of what theory you subscribe to.  A bigger ass than Letterman? Not sure, that’s for you to decide.  Make the jump for the video, where Joaquin mumbles about his dreams of becoming the world’s first Method Rapper… (thanks DS)

John Lennon, 1/3 of Joaquin Phoenix's metaphysical identity  +  James Dean, 1/3 of the metaphysical menagie trois from which Joaquin Phoenix spawned  +  And 2Pac, Lennon, and Dean begat Joaquin...  =
