Weirdo of the Day: Joaquin Phoenix Tells Fake Engagement Story on ‘Letterman’

Oh good, crazy Jaoquin Phoenix is back.

On the "Late Show with David Letterman" Monday night, Phoenix got into an insane yoga position called "harness of the hog" and then casually dropped some very big news: that he was getting married to his yoga instructor.

Wait… what?

But it turned out that whole part about getting engaged was a lie to make his story sound more interesting.

"I think like my life's so boring, and it seemed like something exciting to talk about, and I wanted the audience to like me," he told Good Morning America. "They really like people getting married."

Several years ago, a bearded Phoenix was a guest on Letterman in one of the most bizarre interviews of late night TV. The whole thing turned out to be a very elaborate hoax.
