Joaquin Phoenix Scared of Frogs, Sanity
Joaquin Phoenix “is on the verge of a nervous breakdown,” says one insider. During an interview with the Associated Press, Phoenix asked a reporter:
Do I have a large frog in my hair? . . . Something’s crawling out of my scalp.” Despite reassurances from the reporter, the actor replied, “No, but I feel it. I’m not worried about the looks. I’m worried about the sensation of my brain being eaten . . . What did you ask me?”
Ahh, nothing better than a ‘celebrity slowly goes nuts’ story. In all fairness, if people were calling me Commodus all the time I’d probably wig out too. We ‘arty’ types are a little more sensitive, you must understand. So when Joaquin says “there are frogs in my hair” it could mean “I have dandruff” or it could mean “there actually is a frog in my hair, look how shiny and sparkly!” or maybe “If Reese doesn’t stop leaving panties on my dresser I swear I’m going gay.” So give him a break.
