Ben Stiller Mocks Joaquin Phoenix
Stiller couldnt resist imitating the actor turned rapper at the Oscars
Presenting the Award for Best Cinematography alongside the beautiful Natalie Portman, Stiller appeared dressed as Joaquin and imitating his recent actions on the David Letterman show, or lack thereof. Ben donned a fake beard and glasses, whilst looking around the room in disarray and muttering.
He also went on to explain that big winner Slumdog Millionaire had been shot entirely on a mobile phone. The joke follows Mr Phoenix's choice to supposedly change roles from acclaimed actor to rapper. A decision that has shocked as many as its amused. Many believe it to be an ongoing hoax.
Following footage of Joaquin rapping on stage was leaked on youtube he has been interviewed on several occasions and is standing by his claims so far.
