River Phoenix and I were friends for nine years, and I watched him grow and mature, and I also saw him struggle. I watched him deal with the whole up and down aspects of Hollywood and saw him bounce back, so when he passed away, it was such an enormous shock.
And God help you if you are a phoenix, and you dare to rise up from the ash.A thousand eyes will smolder with jealousy, while you're just flying past.
I'm like a phoenix. I rise from the ashes.
I went to this little performing arts school in downtown Phoenix. You had to dance or act, and everyone sang in choir. I started out playing the saxophone, but I always wanted to be in an orchestra. That was a dream as a kid, and there aren't a lot of saxophones in an orchestra.
When the St. Louis Cardinals arrived in Arizona as the Phoenix Cardinals, I became a fan and still am today.
I like Joaquin Phoenix. He's an amazing actor and he's so buff.
It really doesn't matter to me whether it's defensive end or linebacker. I just want to play the game of football. I've been working on linebacker drills since I got out to Fischer Sports in Phoenix.
Oddly enough, I've always really loved Nightcrawler. You know who else they didn't use enough was Phoenix. I just thought her story line was so tragic. I was just really drawn to that character as well.

Sometimes you have to burn yourself to the ground before you can rise like a phoenix from the ashes.
A phoenix, Beirut seems to always pull itself out its ashes, reinvents itself, has been conquered numerous times in its 7,000-year history, yet it survives by both becoming whatever its conquerors wished it to be and retaining its idiosyncratic persona.
I loved 'The Master' a lot. I'm not going to get to work with Daniel Day-Lewis, but Joaquin Phoenix is one of the best around, I think.
'The Master' is a wonderful film, honestly, and the actors, Joaquin Phoenix and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, are incredible.
