Joaquin Phoenix has been left stunned and humiliated after Jimmy Kimmel aired a clip of a frustrated Phoenix venting at the Joker’s cinematographer.
Kimmel claims he received the footage from the film’s director Todd Phillips.
“The constant whispering, just shut the f**k up, dude,” Phoenix says.
“I’m trying to find something real.”
“I know you started the f***ing Cher thing, Larry … making fun of me. Like I’m a f***ing diva. It’s not even an insult. Cher, really? Singer, actor, dancer, fashion icon — how’s that a f***ing insult?”
Phoenix was clearly taken aback by it, saying he was “embarrassed” and tried to explain himself.
