Watch Joaquin Phoenix get all quiet & awkward when Kimmel plays a real outtake

If you love it when actors take themselves too seriously, you're going to love this.

It's especially hilarious because Joaquin Phoenix just finishes saying how easy and fun it was to make the film when Jimmy Kimmel surprises him with a real outtake from Joker that has him looking rather diva-esque. The full interview is fairly interesting but skip ahead to about the 8 miute mark for the embarrassing stuff.

I think the moral of the story here is to just be real. Intense movies take an intense amount of energy. You never saw Jody Foster and Anthony Hopkins saying it was a breeze to make Silence of the Lambs, right? There's a reason for that.
