Casey Affleck admits I’m Still Here is fake, Joaquin Phoenix is an actor after all

Casey Affleck has finally given into the public’s badgering and admitted that I’m Still Here, his Joaquin Phoenix documentary that showed at TIFF, is a sham, albeit a “terrific performance.” In an interview with the New York Times this morning, Affleck claimed he “never intended to trick anybody” and “the idea of a quote, hoax, unquote, never entered my mind.” But even David Letterman wasn’t in on the joke when Phoenix famously appeared on his show last year. The film has received dreadful reviews from Roger Ebert and several others, so we wonder whether Affleck is trying to drum up positive press for Phoenix’s acting skills.
