Joaquin Phoenix and David Letterman get awkward


Hiding behind a pair of shades, Phoenix managed to get some monosyllabic responses to routine questions past his thick, mane-like beard. Other times he just let Letterman's questions thud, and stared out a) at the audience's laughter at his aloofness, or b) down into his lap. Whether aided by drugs or not, Phoenix certainly contributed to some of the most awkward 11 minutes in the show's history.
