Joaquin Phoenix has always been a little...let's be polite here, quirky.
He's in an already very exclusive club of Best Actor Oscar winners, but it's clear he sees himself as a true artist and visionary. The 43-year-old actor is in Park City, Utah to premiere his latest film Don't Worry He Won't Get Far on Foot at Sundance Film Festival sporting his latest look of slicked back hair and letting his natural colour come through with a grey beard.
He's been sporting longer hair for most of the last decade, but his new 'do would make late '80s Robert Deniro beam with pride. Phoenix is a man who likes to experiment with his appearance, predominantly for his roles, and back in 2010, he starred in a faux documentary I'm Still Here which he took a little too seriously when cameras stopped rolling.
Phoenix mightn't be part of tabloid culture save for the occasional appearance on the Daily Mail's 'sidebar of shame', but with three Oscar nominations under his belt, he can afford to be picky - and look however he likes.
In his current film, he plays a quadriplegic cartoonist, which has sparked outrage from disability rights groups who have taken issue with the fact that an able-bodied person was cast in the part instead of a genuinely disabled actor.
