Joaquin Phoenix is one of the biggest actors in the world. But believe it or not, all his siblings have also made their mark on the industry. However, behind the glitz and glamor of the family’s Hollywood lifestyles is a shocking history.
Phoenix was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico on October 28, 1974. He started acting as a child with small parts in television shows and commercials. After a breakout role in Parenthood, he became a star thanks to the Russell Crowe vehicle, Gladiator.
To date, Phoenix has received three Academy Award nominations and won a Golden Globe. He is best known for Walk The Line, The Master and Her as well as Gladiator. But it’s Phoenix’s quirky family and their tragic background that has also kept him in the public eye over the years.
