Gwyneth Paltrow Thinks Joaquin Seems Odd

By now most people have come to the conclusion that Joaquin Phoenix's foray into rapping is a giant hoax. At least Gwyneth Paltrow, Joaquin's costar in his new movie Two Lovers, hopes it is.

During a press junket for the movie, Gwyneth had this to say to MTV UK:

"I think that there might be some other explanation or something going on. I'm not quite sure what, but I can't believe that he's really going to quit forever to become a rapper. It seems odd."

As for the advice that Gwyneth would give to Joaquin, she said, ""Hmm ... maybe to go live in the projects for a few years to get some authenticity, maybe."

I just realized what's interesting about this whole Joaquin mess. If any other actor said they were quitting acting to become a rapper, we wouldn't believe it. Imagine if Brad Pitt, or even Gwyneth, said they were giving up their craft to start a career in hip hop? We'd laugh! But for some reason when Joaquin says it, we truly aren't sure if he's actually serious. Why is that?
