I know I am in the minority, but I really felt bad for Joaquin Phoenix during that interview on David Letterman. You can so tell that he doesn’t he want to be there and felt really uncomfortable during the whole interview. And it didn’t help that Letterman was a condescending jerk and didn’t take into account that he was nervous or bother to do any research on him. I mean it has been no secret that he is doing old skool rap which if he did the research he could have had some real chuckles with him and not at him. What also didn’t help was his audience that laughed every time he opened his mouth. I mean you can seriously watch Joaquin shrink into suit as each second goes on. With all those factors that probably will go down as one of the worst interviews in Late Night TV. Poor Joaquin will end his talk show career on that note.
BTW that is why I love Jimmy Kimmel Live! so much, he is warm and takes his guests’ feelings into consideration. I know Letterman has been doing it longer, but he could learn a lesson from Kimmel. Seriously whenever I wind up watching an interview of Letterman’s he always comes off as a pompous jerk and coming in at number 2 to Jay Leno he has no reason for that ‘tude.
