Joaquin Phoenix: Giving Up Movies For Music

By November 3, 2008September 10th, 2012Music

Joaquin Phoenix announced on Saturday that he will be giving up his movie career to focus on music. Phoenix learned to play guitar during his role as Johnny Cash in the hit movie, Walk the Line.

"It's like greener pastures, you know what I mean?" Phoenix said
Saturday. "And so, I'm just going to try and like, I'll just be doing
the other thing. … Hopefully, I will emotionally impact you with
that, as well."

We wish Joaquin well. I'd love to interview him to see the psychological differences he experiences between movies and music. Just for my own curiousity…
