Joaquin Phoenix’s DGAF Interview At The Golden Globes Will Have You Loving Vegans

He's somehow done the impossible.

Between Ricky Gervais doing his usual hosting schtick to the inevitable snubbing of several worthy winners, the Golden Globes was yet another predictable snoozefest. But there was one eye-opening moment that kept things interesting and it came in the form of Joaquin Phoenix’s DGAF post-victory interview.

After giving an expletive-laden speech after winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama, the Joker star was whisked backstage for another round of interviews and he was not too pleased with having to speak to a room full of people after having done exactly the same thing just minutes earlier.

There goes that smile.

What little of Joaquin Phoenix’s patience ran out almost immediately as he was asked the usual slew of questions on how he prepared for Joker, to which he responded how that is all “old news” and he’s “answered this for six months.”

He ultimately gave an answer on his preparations for Joker before turning the entire interview on its head by asking the assembled crowd, “Have you guys been sitting here all night? Do they bring you food? Do you have drinks?”

From there the interview quickly turned into a surprisingly pleasant chat about veganism as Phoenix was asked about the vegan menu that was served at the Golden Globes and he was more than happy to talk about it, saying “This is the first time [he had] ever eaten the food at this ceremony” and he thought it was “excellent.”

Without being pushy or overly preachy, Phoenix then goes on to talk about how agriculture is one of the leading causes of climate change, how “consuming animal products is no longer a personal choice” and how this is all “having drastic consequences around the world.”

After pushing other award ceremonies to embrace a vegan menu like the Golden Globes, Phoenix deemed the 2020 Golden Globes event to be great, saying that he’s “never been so proud to attend an awards ceremony as [he was] tonight.”

Joaquin Phoenix may have won a Golden Globe for Joker, but his greatest performance that night was how he not only managed to bring a new level of DGAF-ness to the ceremony, he also somehow managed to educate people about veganism and climate change in a way that made vegans seem cool.

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
