The world of Hollywood is a surprising place and anything ordinary can take a rather wild turn, and so it did for the acclaimed star Joaquin Phoenix. Known for his enigmatic, intense, and often unconventional roles, Phoenix found himself in a surprising position when he decided to take his mother to a Hollywood Golden Globes after-party.
Actors, outside of the set, often find themselves caught in weird moments. When the Joker star decided to take his mother to an after-party, little did he know it would be one of the wildest nights of his life and be etched into his mind like a haunting memory.
Joaquin Phoenix Had A Wild Time At A Hollywood After-Party
Hollywood parties are known to be a wild event and are usually the mother of all controversies and rumors. Back in 2015, Joaquin Phoenix was on Jimmy Kimmel Live talking about his then-recent Golden Globe nominations. When the topic of ‘after-parties’ came up, the Gladiator star had a hilarious yet embarrassing story to share.
“Last year Diddy had an after-party and we went there.”
Not knowing what to expect, Phoenix took his mother along with him and was left stunned when he discovered the party was an ‘overtly s*xual’ kind of party. Despite the surprise, they stayed and were having a fun time, until an even more surprising event took place.
“My mom can like buggy… Doesn’t drink but likes to dance. Like she sets off the dance floor… So the DJ was spinning and nobody was dancing. She like got out there and she started dancing and I walked out from it. I came back in and she was dancing with Usher.. but kind of like sexy.”
While he laughed about it, it must certainly have been a wild night for him to see his mother with the R&B artist Usher turning the night into an event that will surely be talked about often.
Joaquin Phoenix Once Had A Crush On Amy Poehler
While Joaquin Phoenix is happy and well in his long-time relationship with actress Rooney Mara, the Joker star once stated to have a crush on the American actress and comedian Amy Poehler. While talking to Jimmy Kimmel about his 5th Golden Globe nomination, the actor exclaimed that he was excited to go to the ceremony since Poehler would be the one hosting it.
He even stated that he finds her very attractive. Unfortunately for him, Poehler was in a relationship at that time. Even though he is happy and committed, fans can’t help but exclaim how an extraordinary event it would have been.
