Joaquin Phoenix Mystifies David Letterman In Interview (Video)

As the debate continues on whether Joaquin Phoenix's rap career is all a hoax, things are getting even stranger now that the actor is beginning promotion for his new movie, 'Two Lovers'.

One of the latest stops for the scraggly Phoenix was the 'Late Show with David Letterman' Wednesday night -- and describing the interview as 'awkward' would be a huge understatement. While Phoenix appeared on the show, let's just say, he wasn't the perfect guest, after he spoke in monosyllables, wore shades, chewed gum, and mumbled throughout the interview.

At one point, Letterman quipped, "What can you tell us about your days with the Unabomber?". As he continued to receive no response to his questions and compliments, Letterman said, "My hope is that you return to acting after some time off," before adding, "and I think you're taking some time off tonight."

When the strange interview finally came to an end, with Phoenix sitting next to him, Letterman said, "Joaquin, I'm sorry you couldn't be here tonight."

Was Joaquin Phoenix stoned, highly disinterested or was it all an act? Although, it's tough to see it being an act in this instance considering it could severely backfire on the movie's box office numbers.
