We get it. You’re leaving. Your artistic integrity is being raped by Hollywood. You find fame unsavoury. You cannot bear the hypocrisy, manipulation, the exploitation. You’re going.

But if that’s the case, why show up on the red carpet for Chen and your own Two Lovers and make a spectacle of yourself?

This is Joaquin Phoenix on Saturday looking super clean and totally sober and refusing to remove the ciggie from his mouth with a message for all of us written across his knuckles: GOOD BYE. Or BYE GOOD.

Is that like Brett Favre’s version of BYE GOOD?

Is that like retiring and then unretiring in the dickiest fashion ever and pissing all over the fan fondness he spent so many years cultivating? Favre is now the first man in the history of the NFL to get picked 300 times. He also leads the league in interceptions this season. This, of course, is because he loves fellating his own ego and throwing into triple coverage constantly.

So Joaquin – if you’re leaving, leave already. But please be sure about it. Please don’t be Brett Favre.
