Joaquin Phoenix, 34, says he’s quitting acting. While at a benefit for Paul Newman’s camps for kids on Monday, he was talking to TV show Extra about his work in the romantic drama Two Lovers, co-starring Gwyneth Paltrow, when he announced: “This will be my last performance as an actor. I’m not doing films anymore.” Extra interviewer Jerry Penacoli blurted out, “Are you serious?” Phoenix responded: “Yeah. I’m working on my music. I’m done. I’ve been through that.” Phoenix’s rep has confirmed the news. Phoenix, whose career spans over 26 years, lost his brother River Phoenix to a drug overdose in 1993 and undoubtedly has also been affected by the recent death of Heath Ledger, who was a close friend.
