From Crush to Hate

It’s a pattern with him, non? Joaquin Phoenix – known for submerging so fully into character he actually becomes who he’s playing, always subsequently ends up crushing on his love interests… super hard… and then when it’s over, when he realises in real life they are nothing like their roles, his disappointment quickly becomes disdain.

It happened with Reese and June Carter, it’s happening again with Eva Mendes and We Own the Night.

Joaquin and Eva are rumoured to have shared some seriosu chemistry on that set that eventually supposedly spilled over into their trailers. Both however have denied the claims and as usual, whatever they had quickly cooled post production.

During a recent interview to promote the film, Eva spoke of working with Joaquin – referring to his sensitivity and commitment to a part and referred to him as "kind of like working with a puppy dog or a 2-year-old."

Unfortunately the humourless Phoenix has not taken kindly to the remark, and fired back through Playboy in an article with the following retort:

"Had I known I was supposed to be a puppy dog, I would have been much more cute and more consistently attentive. My apologies, Eva, but I had a few other scenes that you weren"t in. This puppy dog had a lot of work to do."

Dude, chill the f*ck out. Nothing unsexier than a man having a hissy fit. Can you hear his voice building to a whine by the end of his lame ass comeback?

Like seriously… total quiveration killer, not that anything was quivering since encountering him at TIFF. Click here if you need a refresher though if you’re a big fan, you might want not want to go there.
