Joaquin Phoenix Returns to 'Letterman' After Disastrous 2009 Appearance


Joaquin Phoenix Returns to 'Letterman' After Disastrous 2009 Appearance


The actor chewed gum and wore sunglasses while appearing on the talk show last year, much to David Letterman's confusion.

Oddball movie star Joaquin Phoenix is to return to David Letterman's U.S. chat show a year after he feared his last appearance had wrecked his career. The actor appeared disheveled and uncomfortable as he attempted to promote what he claimed would be his final film, "Two Lovers", on the show in 2009.

With a bushy beard and uncombed hair, he evoked the host's wrath by refusing to remove his sunglasses for the studio interview and chewing gum as he spoke. Letterman even poked fun at his appearance, asking his guest, "What can you tell us about your days with the Unibomber?"

But backstage, the contrite attitude he put on for the TV cameras dropped and he crumbled in his dressing room. Phoenix's breakdown was caught on camera by his brother-in-law Casey Affleck and now features in new fly-on-the-wall documentary "I'm Still Here". In the film, the actor/rapper turns to his publicist, Sue Petricola, and states, "Oh my God, what have I done? I'm a laughing stock. My life is ruined."

But Phoenix is now heading back to the late-night show - he'll be a guest on the September 22 episode to promote the documentary, about the actor's efforts to become a rapper.
