Phoenix too nervous
LONDON: Actor Joaquin Phoenix was supposedly so nervous about promoting his new movie Walk The Line on the Oprah Winfrey Show that he had to be coaxed on to the stage. Contactmusic.com reports that Phoenix tried to weasel out of the interview because he feared he might vomit on TV.
Oprah says, “Nervous is not the word. He was a wreck. I’ve never seen nervous like that before. I had to go in the green room, and literally said to him, ‘You don’t have to put yourself through this.’ He said, ‘I think I’m going to throw up.’”
