Joaquin Phoenix, taunter of senior citizens

As far as Joaquin Phoenix is concerned, you’re never too old or too respected an actor, to cop a good-natured ribbing about your alopecia. Even if it does offend Mark Wahlberg’s delicate sensibilities now and then, and make Robert Duvall want to put out a hit on him:

No subject was off limits for Phoenix when it came to mocking 76-year-old Duvall, including his baldness.Wahlberg says, “Every day I’m telling Joaquin, ‘Hey, be quiet!’ He called Duvall a dinosaur, he said, ‘Look at your head – it’s peeling!’ He was non-stop.”

And Duvall admits he got annoyed with Phoenix on a couple of occasions, although he still thinks the 32-year-old is a “great guy.”Duvall says, “I got really ticked a couple of times.”

Speaking of prehistoric beings, does it seem to you that lately Joaquin has been regressing into a rumpled, bleary-eyed, caveman ?

    Maybe he is angling for a GEICO commercial

    Oh, dear God. Dr. J is so right. So frighteningly and sadly right.

    The correct phrase to the Robert Duvall, it is: Your head, it is appealing. And then the Robert Duvall, he may laugh heartily as pulls the Joaquin out of the nearby tar pits…
