Joaquin Phoenix: Seeks apology to David Letterman
Actor Joaquin Phoenix has apologised to David Letterman for his infamous appearance on The Late Show.
During an interview, Phoenix stunned viewers on Letterman's talkshow last year, in which the unkempt actor, sporting dark shades, slurred his words and mumbled monosyllabic answers.
Since that incident, while appearing on the show for the first time, Phoenix told Letterman that he was sorry for his behaviour, which was since confirmed to be an act for his mock documentary I'm Still Here.
On Wednesday's Late Show, Phoenix told the host: "I think that you've interviewed many, many people, and I assumed that you would know the difference between a character and a real person - but I apologise. I hope I didn't offend you in any way."
"Oh no. Oh no, no, no," Letterman replied. "I'm telling you, it was so much fun. It was batting practice, you know what I mean? Every one of them was a dinger."
Also, the comedian denied suggestions that, he was in on the hoax.
Letterman asked Phoenix: "Was there a script that you and I were working with?" to which the actor responded: "No. We'd hoped to come on a talkshow, and I was looking for a beat down, and I got one... I want to thank you for that."
