As I’m Still Here hits Irish cinemas, Movies.ie looks at five great Joaquin Phoenix YouTube moments…

Miley Who???





Doing his bit for charity, Phoneix sits down with tween sensation Miley Cyrus. They talk Cyrus (of course), facebook, Lady Gaga and her hit song “two lashes” – all in the name of suicide prevention. We heart him for asking the real question, “what does Miley Cyrus do?”




What is wrong with you people?






The actor goes all Bob Dylan as he receives his 2008 People’s Choice award for “Favourite Leading Man”. Phoenix adds his own commentary on the 2008 writers strike remaining silent for the majority until he ends on a deadpan, “what is wrong with you people?”. Classic Phoenix.
