The Point of You - - GOODDEEDS/FAITSETGESTES -

Born in Puerto Rico (a ter­ri­tory of the United States), the 38-year-old ac­tor has al­ways lived a no­madic life. His par­ents were mem­bers of the Chil­dren of God sect and re­lo­cated fre­quently, forc­ing their chil­dren to grow up quickly. Joaquin be­gan act­ing at a very early age, but had the full sup­port of KLV IDPLOy, ZKLFK QRW HYHUyRQH KDV WKH EHQH­fiW RI. HH DSSHDred in the TV se­ries SevenBrides­forSevenBrothers along­side his brother River Phoenix and Richard Dean An­der­son, who is best known for per­form­ing in MacGyver and Star­gateSG1. Joaquin was only 8 at the time! Af­ter this grad­ual EXLOG-XS, KH DFWHG LQ KLV fiUVW IHDWXUH-OHQJWK PRYLH LQ 1987: Space­camp. It was then al­most 10 years later that we saw him take on the role of a sex shop man­ager who as­sists a pri­vate in­ves­ti­ga­tor played by Ni­co­las Cage in 8mm. But the char­ac­ter that really sealed his fame was none other than Com­modus in Gla­di­a­tor, D ERx RI­fiFH VPDVK KLW WKDW DOVR VWDUUHG Rus­sell Crowe. Joaquin’s per­for­mance as Com­modus earned him an Os­car nom­i­na­tion for Best Sup­port­ing Role in 2001. How­ever, the bad boy la­bel never stuck to him and this was some­thing he seemed to long for. Af­ter sud­denly an­nounc­ing KLV UHWLUHPHQW IURP WKH fiOP LQGXVWUy LQ ODWH 2008, WKH DFWRU grew a beard and ru­mors be­gan to cir­cu­late that he was suf­fer­ing from “deep de­pres­sion.” Noth­ing of the sort! In fact his trans­for­ma­tion was for a new char­ac­ter that he had de­cided WR SODy DQG WKXV WKH KRDx ZDV fiQDOOy UHYHDOHG. HLV fiOP UROHV have grad­u­ally changed in tone, be­com­ing deeper, and at times darker. He now ex­cels in the art of act­ing. Take for ex­am­ple The­Mas­ter (2012), in which he played an al­co­holic ex-ser­vice­man.
