Joaquin Phoenix together with Liberty in a formal event Joaquin Rafael Phoenix (born October 28, 1974; born Bottom) is an American actor, producer, and animal rights activist. As an actor, he is best known for his dark and unorthodox roles in indie films. He has received numerous awards, including an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, a Grammy Award, and two Golden Globe Awards for his work. The New York Times named him the 12th greatest actor of the twenty-first century in its list of the 25 greatest actorsof the twenty-first century in 2020.
Young Joaquin Phoenix and Leaf may not have known how much their early days of street performance would alter their lives. Growing up in a financially insecure household, Phoenix turned to singing and dancing as a secondary form of revenue to supplement the household's income. However, he was quickly discovered by a Hollywood children's agent, who helped to bring this young celebrity in his own right to a greater and more widespread audience. And, as they say, the rest is history. Young Phoenix honed his acting abilities over a series of films, eventually becoming a refined performer for his age.
Phoenix began his career in television series with his brother River in the early 1980s, after being born in Puerto Rico and raised in Los Angeles and Florida. SpaceCamp (1986) and Parenthood (1987) were his first major film performances (1989). During that time, he was known as Leaf Phoenix, a moniker he created for himself. Phoenix reverted to his birth name in the early 1990s, and his supporting roles in the comedy-drama film To Die For (1995) and the historical thriller Quills earned him critical acclaim (2000). For his performance of the villainous emperor Commodus in the historical drama picture Gladiator, he gained significant critical praise and his first Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (2000). He enjoyed success with the horror films Signs (2002) and The Village (2004), the historical drama Hotel Rwanda (2004), and his portrayal of musician Johnny Cash in the biopic Walk the Line, for which he got a Grammy, a Golden Globe, and an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor (2005). Before taking a sabbatical from acting, Phoenix continued to win accolades in two films directed by his frequent collaborator James Gray: the action thriller We Own the Night (2007) and the romance drama Two Lovers (2008).
Phoenix is an animal rights activist who lives in New York City. In addition to being vegan from the age of three, he has donated to numerous charity organizations and produced several documentaries on the global meat industry and its impact on the environment. Since 2016, Phoenix has been in a relationship with actress Rooney Mara, with whom he has a son, who is also an actor.
River Jude Phoenix (né Bottom; August 23, 1970 – October 31, 1993) was an actor, musician, and activist in the United States of America.
As the older brother of Rain Phoenix, Joaquin Phoenix, Liberty Phoenix, and Summer Phoenix, Phoenix grew up in a nomadic household. He lacked academic education but has an innate ability for the guitar. He began his acting career in television advertisements at the age of ten. He made his film debut in 1985's science fiction adventure film Explorers and gained prominence in 1986's Stand by Me, a coming-of-age thriller based on Stephen King's novella The Body. Phoenix transitioned into more mature roles with Running on Empty (1988), in which he portrayed Danny Pope, the son of fugitive parents, in a well-received performance that earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor (at the age of 18, he became the category's sixth-youngest nominee), and My Own Private Idaho (1991), in which he portrayed Michael Waters, a gay hustler in search of his estranged wife. Phoenix's performance in the latter film earned him numerous accolades, including the Volpi Cup for Best Actor at the 1991 Venice Film Festival, as well as the Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead and the National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Actor, making him the second-youngest winner of the National Society's Award.
Phoenix died on Halloween night, 1993, at the age of 23, after overdosing at The Viper Room on cocaine and heroin (a combination known as a speedball). He was in the middle of filming Dark Blood when he died, and the finished picture was released in 2012, 19 years after it was shot.
