Casey Affleck: Joaquin Phoenix Was Acting

After over a year of speculation, rumors, and WTF moments, Casey Affleck, director of the Joaquin Phoenix “documentary” I’m Still Here admits that it was all made up.

Affleck praises Phoenix’s performance and half-baked attempt at a rap career telling the New York Times:

“It’s a terrific performance, it’s the performance of his career.”

When Phoenix appeared on Late Show with David Letterman last year, it had some people concerned that he had gone off the deep end. Fear not, apparently.
