Joaquin phoenix dating topaz
To this date, he and River Phoenix hold the distinction of being the first and only brothers to get nominated for acting Academy Awards.
Some of his other notable films include the satire film Buffalo Soldiers (2001), the science fiction thriller Signs (2002), the animated film Brother Bear (2003), the historical drama film Hotel Rwanda (2004), the psychological thriller The Village (2004), the documentary Earthlings (2005), the romantic drama Two Lovers (2008), the drama The Immigrant (2013), the romantic science fiction drama Her (2013) and the crime comedy-drama film Inherent Vice (2014).
On January 26, 2006, while driving down a winding canyon road in Hollywood, Phoenix ran off the road and rolled his car. Shaken and confused, Phoenix heard a tapping on his window and a voice say, “Just relax.” Unable to see the man, Phoenix replied, “I’m fine.
I am relaxed.” The man replied, “No, you’re not,” and stopped Phoenix from lighting a cigarette while gasoline was leaking into the car cabin.
Since 2006, he has been living on top of the Hollywood Hills.
In early April 2005, Phoenix checked into rehab to be treated for alcoholism.
In response, he retreated from the public eye for about a year. Phoenix began dating his Inventing the Abbotts co-star Liv Tyler in 1995 and separated in 1998.
In 2001, Phoenix started dating South-African model Topaz Page-Green. He is currently on the board of directors for The Lunchbox Fund, a non-profit organization, which was founded by Page-Green.
He has subsequently earned Best Actor nominations for portraying musician Johnny Cash in the biopic Walk the Line (2005) and for his role as Freddie Quell, a sex-obsessed alcoholic World War II veteran in the drama film The Master (2012).
Phoenix approached Herzog to express gratitude, but Herzog downplayed his heroism and returned to his home nearby.
Phoenix unexpectedly announced in late 2008 that he had retired from acting to pursue a rapping career, and that the forthcoming Two Lovers would be his last film.
Three days after his 19th birthday, Joaquín’s older brother River suffered a fatal drug overdose on October 31, 1993.
Joaquín’s call to 911 seeking help for his brother was repeatedly played on radio and television.
