Joaquin Phoenix gave a hilarious speech while accepting the TIFF Tribute Actor Award at the Toronto International Film Festival, as he admitted that he had no idea who was giving it to him or why, but when his publicist said someone wanted to give him an award, he said, "I'm in. Let's do it." He calls his sisters Rain, Liberty and Summer his best friends, although he quips, he doesn't talk to them or see them.
He also reveals that his late brother River Phoenix inspired him to continue acting when Joaquin was a teen and says his father instilled in him a great work ethic, although he then jokes that his Joker director may not agree with that. Check out the full interview for plenty of laughs!
