He is also known for his work as a social activist, particularly as an advocate for animal rights. His mother, Arlyn (née Dunetz), was born in The Bronx, New York to Jewish parents whose families emigrated from Russia and Hungary. (In a Jay Leno interview, Joaquin said he had originally called himself Antleaf as a child; it’s unclear if he was being serious.) Leaf became the name he would use as a child actor; at fifteen, he changed it back to “Joaquin”. in 2005, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor, and won a Golden Globe in the same category. Phoenix’s film, I’m Still Here, debuted at the Venice Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival in 2010. He has directed music videos for the following bands: Ringside, She Wants Revenge, People in Planes, Arckid, Albert Hammond Jr., and Silversun Pickups.

Phoenix is from a family of performers, including his older brother, the late River Phoenix. He is also known for his work as a social activist, particularly as an advocate for animal rights. This is the name he would use as a child actor; at fifteen, he changed it back to ‘Joaquin’. A year later, at the insistence of his friends, Phoenix reluctantly re-entered the world of acting. He made his big-screen debut in Space Camp (1986), playing the role of Max, after starring in an Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode “A very happy ending” the same year. He has earned positive reviews for his portrayals of various individuals: a troubled teen in Gus Van Sant’s To Die For (1995) co-starring with Nicole Kidman, a small-town troublemaker in Oliver Stone’s U Turn, Inventing the Abbotts (1997), the cruel Roman emperor Commodus in Ridley Scott’s Gladiator (2000) (for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor), a conflicted priest in Quills (2000), a washed-up baseball player in M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs (2002), the irresolute husband of a superstar-skater in the widely panned It’s All About Love in 2003, a lovestruck farmer in Shyamalan’s The Village (2004), a disillusioned cameraman in Terry George’s Hotel Rwanda (2004), and heroic firefighter in Ladder 49 (2004).
