    I hope this is going to be a good movie. I like Phoenix and Mendes. Phoenix was pretty phenominal in Gladiator all though that was a long time ago, thats the most memorable role I know he’s played.With regard to Mendes, she’s just hot and easy on the eyes.My Blog Derek Hail’s Blog

  • veronica dorch

    shut up idiot about JP,s scar. That scar is what makes him unique and hot. JP is an exellent actor.

  • anastasia

    wi_girl:He does not have a cleftlip scar! He was born withthat mark on his upperlip. As a face reader-i like to think of it as an overdefined philthrum-as relates to magnetic sexuality in his private lifei would like to prophasize Phoenix and Mendes children in the future. What a bitch.

  • tanya

    hey everyone,I love the fact that Joaquin has that scare he is very proud of it.it truley does make him unique.This movies seem like it is going to be great every movie he makes is.

  • Sharon

    Just so you know what makes the guy special its that he don’t want to make his looks better hes happy the way he and is a nice guy and into his acting, and I hope he dose meet a nice women and be happy because thats what lifes about.

  • Phyl

    Joaquin is the greatest actor of his generation, hands down! You can see him in Walk the Line, Ladder 49, Signs, Buffalo Soldiers, The Village, It’s All About Love, Inventing the Abbotts, Quills, Gladiator, The Yards, 8MM, U-Turn, To Die For, Clay Pidgeons, Lost in Paradise, Parent Trap….. to name a "few." Each role is a totally different character and he aces every one of them. He is a very gifted young man. I’m sure his parents are very proud of him as well as his sisters and… me of course. Phyl

  • Lisa

    He was not in Parent Trap he was in Parenthood with Steve Martin. I love his scar as well, and it’s not cleff lip. Also, if he and Eva are really together I find them both discusting as she is in a long standing relationship. I don’t think she’s all that hot, man she needs to fix her teeth!!

  • wi_girl

    Are you kidding? That scar is gross! And I am in the medical field thank you, and yes, that is a very typical cleft lip scar. Just cause he doesn’t want to admit he had a birth defect in his bio’s. Really, it’s nothing to be ashamed of.

  • Marie

    Just cause your in the medical field doesn’t mean anything. It only means you think you can pass judgement on someone elses disability. BITCH

  • Lisa

    If you have ever been witness to a cleft lip scar they are much bigger then that. And really who cares if that is what it is. Your attitude towards it is probably why he doens’t admit it if that is even true.

  • Joaq This Way

    Marie, you’re psycho. All wi_girl said was that it was nothing to be ashamed of. And it isn’t. Seriously, if Eva needs to get her teeth fixed, so does Joaquin, because the tooth below his scar is busted! He’s hot as hell, but that doesn’t mean he has to be perfect. Get over it guys. Damn.

    Joaq this way. Maybe you need to go back and read what she wrote. She said that scar was "gross" and she is in the medical field thank you very much. I may be physico for voicing my opinion, but you must be unable to read in complete sentences to have missed her rude description.

    I never noticed his scar until someone pointed it out to me, so it is insignificant to me. What is gorgeous are his beautiful green eyes!

  • Melissa

    Joaquin Phoneix is the hottest actor on earth!!!! That scar on his lip is hot and it does make him unique. He is not with Eva. He is in a long standing relationship also.

  • Lisa

    No sucessful relationships for JP. Who do you think he is with? He has mentioned several times love is very hard for him and he can’t seem to find anyone.

  • joaq soulmate

    First of all, it is in fact not a cleftlip, whatever medical field you are in (which you are probably not, you’re just saying that) you need to go back to school. Second, Joaquin Phoenix is the absolute greatest, most articulate, and chivalrous actor in hollywood. He has tried a tremendous amount to keep his name out of the media and has said only respectful things. This makes him even more of a wonderful actor and person. His performances are memorable (he got robbed at the oscars!) and extrodinary. His emotions run deep in all his scenes. He can combine drama and comedy with an amazing ease. He is so naturaly gifted, both physically, mentally, and emotionally. An actor such as him comes one in a million. This generation is fortunate to witness the making of a legendary actor. The hardships he has endured are unimaginable and give him infinite amounts of credit to his gentle heart. He is perfect in every way but both real and blunt. He is not afraid to think what he wants and say it, but still has the values and manners to express them in different ways. He helps animals everyday with his support and it is so comendable. I watch his movies with awe and they give me an inspiration to act and not be afraid of my flaws. Through his acting and personal clarity, his emotions are real, and show how unglamorous hollywood can be, but still the dream is possible. Watching his films is nirvana. I believe he is indeed my soulmate in every way. He is truely a knight in shining armor. Whether i fulfill my destiny to meet him or not, he will always be my diamond in the ruff.

  • Jayla

    I really love Joaquin’s performances. he is a truly great actor for his age, it’s very exciting to know that he has great work under his belt and he’s a little over 30 years old. Our Brando, maybe? Eva, on the other hand is OK but a HELL of a lot better than JLO, i liked her a lot in Hitch. She really’s not that hot looking, either.

  • Mizz DJ Sultry

    Cleft lip shmeft lip!!! Regardless if he removes it or not, he still RAWKS with his acting skills. Yes, of course I notice his cleft lip, but it doesn’t bother me because…..who cares, really! I’m hoping he’s not with Eva Mendes for pure jealousy reasons!!!

  • lisa marie

    I saw Joaquin a few years ago in Toronto, when he was promoting buffalo soldieers. He was coming out of the elevator at the hotel just when I was walking in. He was wearing his glasses and some black slacks… he was escorting his grandmother out of the hotel. It wasn’t any real big deal………. though I would love to see him now

  • Marilyn

    I think JP is a fine actor and his role in Walk The Line was fabulous. He was robbed not getting best actor nod. We don’t hear anything about Philip Seymour Hoffman since he won, but we do hear a lot about JP. I only hope that he gets another role in his career that was as defining and good as WTL. I know he is only 31, but sometimes you never get a chance to do a film as great as WTL. JP, use your God given talents to find another great film. As Reese said, make a movie that matters. I love you!!!!!!!!

  • melikeyjp

    was he as cute in preson then he is on movies. i love him so much

  • marge

    JP, sexy, stylish, kind, and his own man. Hollywood is hard on him because he WON"T CONFORM. Did you ever see the stars without their makeup. Everyone wants reality, Well there is no one more real the Joaquin.

  • Denise

    Congratulations to Steven Honig who plays Teddy (Marc Walhberg’s son in the movie)! I look forward to seeing it! You are a great student and a wonderful artist!!!Love, Ms. Morello and you’re classmates

  • lisa

    it’s his little imperfections that make him beautiful. i hope he’s not with eve mendez , she’s not the right one for him. actually the right one was just in a movie with him, but is married unfortunately. you can tell by the way he looks at her he’s got it bad for her. he looks at her the same way garth brooks looked at trisha yearwood when he was still married to his first wife.

  • Madeleine

    A cleft lip can heal in the womb. This healing happens very rarely and some would say is miraculous. And yes, I agree, it’s a birthmark of true beauty.

  • lulu

    joaquin es hermoso y en esas tomas se ve mas guapo

    LOVE JOAQUIN

    NO HAY DUDA EL ES EL MEJOR DE LOS ACTORES
