Joaquin Phoenix won the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture Drama at the Golden Globes on Sunday, and was soon after brought into the press room to answer reporters’ questions about his big win.
Unfortunately for those reporters, however, Phoenix wasn’t too pleased with this step in the process, declaring that he had been “tricked” into the room by someone who told him it was just for photos. His dissatisfaction continued when a reporter asked him about the process of preparing for his role in Joker.
“Isn’t this old news?” Phoenix snapped back. “I think I’ve talked about this for six months. I mean, right? I feel like I answered these questions. You want to hear a different version of it? I can try to change it slightly, or what should I do?”
The actor eventually gave in, discussing his “long process,” which involved research into medications and political assassins, and later weight loss. “And there’s probably so many other things that I just can’t remember right now. But I feel like I already answered this question six months ago, but thanks for still asking,” he quipped.
AND THE WINNER IS: Here's the official winner's list from last night's Golden Globes! http://bit.ly/2QSmgfE
