The documentary I’m Still Here, which focused on Phoenix’s strange behavior, was not a documentary after all.

Casey Affleck, the director of I’m Still Here, confessed to the New York Times that Phoenix was putting on a show this whole time.

“It’s a terrific performance, it’s the performance of his career.”

“I never intended to trick anybody. The idea of a ‘hoax’ never entered my mind,” Affleck said of his film, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Affleck admitted that the opening shot of the film was also made up. It featured Phoenix and his family swimming in Panama, but was actually shot in Hawaii with actors.

The only part that wasn’t staged was a home video clip of Phoenix and his siblings performing on a street in LA.

So Phoenix’s strange rapping and shaggy appearance was all part of an act. Talk about dedication to your career!

    A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at FabulousBuzz.com. Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
