Joaquin Phoenix Net Worth, Wiki & Biography in 2017

Joaquin Raphael Phoenix, simply known as Joaquin Phoenix or Leaf Phoenix, is a famous American film and television producer, actor, social activist, as well as a musician. To the audiences, Joaquin Phoenix is perhaps best known for portraying the role of Commodus in the epic historical drama film called “Gladiator”, which was directed by Ridley Scott. The movie also featured performances from Russell Crowe, Oliver Reed, Richard Harris and Connie Nielsen. Released in the year 2000, “Gladiator” instantly became a box office success, with more than $457 million grossed worldwide. The story of an enslaved Maximus Decimus Meridius and his rise to becoming a gladiator was met with positive critical reviews and sparked interest in Ancient Roman history and boosted sales of a book written by Marcus Aurelius called “Meditations”. Meanwhile, the character portrayed by Russell Crowe was named among the 50 best movie heroes and was placed at #35 on the list of 100 Greatest Movie Characters. “Gladiator” brought Joaquin Phoenix a nomination for an Academy Award, BAFTA Award, as well as a Golden Globe Award.

After the movie, Phoenix landed the role of Johnny Cash in James Mangold’s biographical drama called “Walk the Line”, which brought him even more public recognition. More recently, Joaquin Phoenix starred alongside Scarlett Johansson, Chris Pratt, Bill Hader and Olivia Wilde in a critically acclaimed sci-fi drama film entitled “Her”, which was directed by Spike Jonze. Phoenix’s portrayal of Theodore Twombly earned him a nomination for the Golden Globe Award.

A well-known actor, how rich is Joaquin Phoenix? Sources state that Joaquin Phoenix’s net worth is estimated to be $25 million, most of which clearly comes from his acting career.

Joaquin Phoenix was born in 1974, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. As a teenager, Phoenix took part in various talent competitions with his siblings in order to earn money. Fortunately, they caught the attention of Iris Burton, a talent manager, who helped them get a job appearing in commercials and other on-screen appearances. One of Phoenix’s first acting roles was in a television series called “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers”, where he appeared alongside his brother River Phoenix. In 1986, Joaquin Phoenix debuted in a film role in the space adventure film directed by Harry Winer called “SpaceCamp”. Shortly afterwards, Phoenix took a break from acting, until he returned to television screens in 1995 with a movie entitled “To Die For”, in which he co-starred with Matt Dillon and Nicole Kidman.

Even though Joaquin Phoenix is best known as an actor, he also managed to establish himself as a director and producer. Phoenix’s directorial contributions consist of music videos for such artists as “She Wants Revenge” and “People in Planes”. As a producer, he has worked on the show entitled “4Real”, as well as on the crime drama film “We Own the Night”, starring Mark Wahlberg and Eva Mendes.

Phoenix’s contributions to acting have been acknowledged with Venice Film Festival award, People’s Choice Award, a Grammy Award, as well as numerous nominations.

#Fact
1He has worked with 3 directors who have won a Best Director Oscar: Ron Howard, Oliver Stone, and Woody Allen.
2Two days after his 19th birthday, he was in the company of his brother River Phoenix, his sister Rain Phoenix and River's girlfriend Samantha Mathis at The Viper Room in Hollywood, California when River Phoenix suffered an overdose of heroin and cocaine in the early hours of October 31st 1993. Phoenix called 911 from a call box located across the street from the club (co-owned by Johnny Depp who was performing on stage with his band at the time). A distraught Phoenix informed the 911 operator that his brother was "laying on the cement" had "taken a Valium" and was "having seizures", adding "Please, [get here] because he's dying". River Phoenix was pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre at 1.51am, he was 23. Phoenix immediately returned to his home in Florida with his sister and mother (who had flown out to collect him). The incident was a high-profile celebrity death, with Phoenix's recorded 911 call released to the media and played repeatedly on news reports covering the story over the following weeks.

#Quote
1[on being attracted to acting] On the first job I ever did, there was a fight scene. I was eight, and though I knew it wasn't real and they were actors, I was emotionally affected by it. I felt the adrenaline race through my body. There are kids who get on a BMX bike when they're eight and they go, 'Whoa, this is incredible' and grow up to do extreme sports. It's the same for me with acting.
2[on Paul Thomas Anderson, director of The Master (2012)] He called me "Bubbles"on the set. Bubbles was Michael Jackson's pet monkey, and I was Paul's pet monkey. I didn't mind I at all. I love having a master.
3Once I became a total buffoon, it was so liberating. Part of why I was frustrated with acting was because I took it so seriously. I want it to be so good that I get in my own way. It's like love: when you fall in love you're not yourself anymore. You lose control of being natural and showing all the beautiful parts of yourself, and all somebody recognizes is total desperation.
4[2007] Early on, there wasn't much strategy in choosing roles. I didn't get offered 400 movies; I got offered four, and I did those movies. Let's be honest: If I were six-foot-two, blond and incredibly muscular, they would have been banging down my door. Any actor who doesn't admit that is wrong. But once you've established yourself, you try to break out to the other place...The irony is that I am suddenly being offered all those things usually offered to the six-foot-two blond guy with the big chest. And I'm going, "Are you motherfuckers crazy? I'm finally fucking starting to get into some real work, and now you want me to make movies where I run around with a fucking gun, chasing dudes?" I can't understand actors who, after busting their asses for years, get nominated for an Oscar at the age of 45 and win it, and the next 10 movies they make are fucking crap.
5[2007, on if he believes in life after death] Fuck no. There's just nothing. We're gone. If I do have a soul, I don't think it's interpreting life, feelings or experience. My brain is what's making sense of experience and feelings for me. So when that fucker's cut off, how can I possibly understand or feel anything?
6[2007, on being a vegetarian] I don't try to impose my views on anyone else, and I can simply say I feel it's right for me. Of course, I've had slips. When I was about 12 I stayed with a friend in San Diego. They got pizza, and I was like, "I'm having some motherfucking pizza. I ate two slices and vomited for two days. I'm strange in that I crave salad and vegetables. I've never really had a sweet tooth, and I don't particularly like foods that are too rich. I'm a parent's dream.
7First of all, I really think that the greatest fear for actors, is reaching the point in which they go, 'God, I'm good at this', because I think the work will really suffer. It's not a conscious effort, it's just I always hope I can do justice to the films and characters. I feel that I've been choosy in my roles as much as I can be, and I only work on films that I REALLY want to make.
8It's a bad idea for actors to grow accustomed to seeing themselves on camera, because inevitably you start doing things and become too self-conscious. The only way to prevent it is by not being aware of yourself in that way or at least trying not to be.
9I live a really boring life. I'm much more clichéd, pathetic and pretentious than you would probably give me credit for. I don't want to do much of anything when I'm not working. It's important that any woman I know shouldn't need to be stimulated outside the house, because I can't provide that. (2007)
10Acting. I'm one of those actors who likes to stay in character between takes. I drive other actors crazy but, to me, the most important thing when I'm making a film is that the character takes precedence. I become obsessed with whoever I'm playing. I want to explore the character as completely as I can. The moment an actor becomes satisfied with themselves, their work suffers. I think that we should always challenge ourselves in work. - On acting being his biggest challenge.
11I'm going to sound a little weird here, but I like to spend a lot of time on my own in the woods. I don't exactly sneak off in the middle of the night, but I like to be in a place where no one can reach me by phone or e-mail.
12I don't know Shakespeare! I'm not a serious actor. Directors always make references, and I go: "Ah, I'll check it out," and I never, ever do. I'm incredibly lazy.
13Making movies is a constant manipulation. You manipulate the environment. You make it rain when you want it to. You manipulate actors. And as an actor, you try and manipulate your feelings to match what you think you'd be going through in a situation where your character is going through something.
14If you can come in, say your lines brilliantly, and be thinking 'What's for lunch?' the whole time you're doing it and it works for the audience, who cares?
15(On his childhood and his live on the land with his family): "I remember us being poor, but I never felt embarrassed, or like I was missing anything. I don't remember the hardship of trying to make it, just how my parents always managed to get through."
16(On falling into acting): "I suck at painting and writing; I tried both. For me, it's acting because I grew up with it. When we moved to California, we all did commercials and TV shows. Riv was the first to get a TV show and me and my sister Liberty guest-starred on another show. It was kind of accidental."
17[on maintaining a lower profile than some of his other Hollywood peers] The less someone knows about me, the better, because my intention is to play a variety of characters.
18I never think that I'm good at anything I do. I can always do it better, I know my weakness. I've never been perfect.
19I had a really wonderful upbringing. We were a tight family. It was wonderful to grow up with so many siblings. We were all just a year or two apart, and we were always so supportive of each other. I learned everything from my older brother and sister and taught it to my younger sisters.
20That kind of fame; I couldn't have it in my life. I love that we can sit on the lawn in Central Park and I'm just one of the millions. I don't want to lose that. I'm trying to figure out the perfect strategy. And it's tough. I just want to be right in the middle.
21It's been a year since last time I tried to give up smoking. I went to a hypnotist; we sat down and started talking. A couple of hours later, I woke up; the hypnotist wasn't in the room, but his wife was. I was like 'Oh my goodness, I fell asleep and didn't get to talk to the doctor.' And she said 'Don't worry, you talked...' I freaked out, left their place, immediately bought a pack of cigarettes and smoked, terrified of what I'd said.
22I changed my name because no one in the States could pronounce 'Joaquin' and I used to get really embarrassed about it as a kid. All the other kids in my family had gorgeous names and I got 'Joaquin', you know what I mean? So I said 'This is not good. Even I can't say it'.
23I enjoy humour more than anything, I don't really sit around banging my head and crying all the time.
24I go into movies thinking, we're performing, but with interviews, we're pretending to be completely real. I just can't get my head around it. And the things we say in this hour could permanently shape our personas. I mean, tell me that's not a little odd! And because I think that's odd, people think I'm odd. And that's strange. Know what I'm saying?
25The reason I keep making movies is I hate the last thing I did. I'm trying to rectify my wrongs.
26As I'm reading a script, I start to see the character. I always seem to do something to my hair. A lot of stuff I do for a part, people don't even notice, but I notice, and it makes the character whole for me.
27I don't know why I always get to play these guys who have few redeeming features. But don't knock it. Villains are much more fun.
28I'm not the indie kid, and I'm also not the John Grisham novel hero, but I am all of those things. I do whatever excites me at the time. I'll be in some huge $80 million buddy cop movie, I don't care, and I'll also do some wild independent movie. I refuse to have an agenda.
29(On relationship with Liv Tyler) "I was in awe. Every once in a while you find an actor that, with one word, can sum up eight different emotions. She absolutely nailed that."
30(On relationship with Liv Tyler) "I'm a great believer in people coming into your life, and you into theirs, for a reason. And i know that when Liv and I met, it was for a reason - I really needed her and she really needed me. And at a certain point, I think we stopped evolving with each other, stopped progressing, and made a very mature decision to move on, even though there was still a great love there. There's no one gossipy thing that I can share. I'm thankful that we had the time we had."
31(On relationship with Liv Tyler) "What can I say ? We hit it off immediately. She's a darling. I've said it over and over again. She's just very real, right there, never like a movie star. She's so genuine, and she doesn't take herself too seriously. It shows in the work she does that her honesty stands out most."
32My significant other right now is myself, which is what happens when you suffer from multiple personality disorder and self-obsession.
33River and I would talk about being old, being in our 50s together, how it'd probably take us that long to get to work together. There was something gorgeous about us being old together. River will be missed -period. I mean now, more than ever I wish I could talk to him. - on living without older brother River.
34I don't have the slightest desire to speak about my dead brother. It gets on my nerves to always be compared with him. My brother was a magnificent person and an outstanding actor.
35After River's death, I felt like I was in an altered state. It took me over a year to get my life back.
36I had a Catholic girlfriend but she wouldn't, uh, share loving.
