Joaquin Phoenix Not Phased About His Joker Role

Joaquin Phoenix

Joaquin Phoenix is definitely preparing really hard to play the Clown Prince of Crime.

While promoting his new movie, The Sisters Brothers, Joaquin Phoenix told IndieWire  about his preparation for the role.

“It is ideal to be able to focus on one thing and not do press while you’re prepping for something else, which is not working out,” he said.


When asked about the pressure about playing such an iconic character like The Joker, Phoenix couldn’t care less about it or what people may think about his portrayal.

“I could care less,” he said. “I don’t really think that much about what people think. Who cares, who cares? My approach to every movie is the same. What I’m interested in is the filmmaker and the idea of the character.”
