Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1974, Joaquin Phoenix began his acting career in the made-for-tv movie, Kids Don't Tell, before landing his first major role as Max Graham in the 1986 adventure film, SpaceCamp. At the time, the actor was known professionally as Leaf Phoenix because he wanted to have a nature-related name like his siblings but later decided to change it back and has been known as Joaquin ever since.
From playing the amoral, power-hungry antagonist of Ridley Scott's Oscar-winning historical drama Gladiator to being told to "swing away" in M. Night Shyamalan's Signs, Phoenix has delivered some truly memorable performances over the years, and by all accounts, his take on the 'Clown Prince of Crime' in Todd Phillip's Joker movie might be his best yet!
