Joaquin Phoenix recalls early childhood as a member of a 'cult' PDF Print E-mail

Joaquin Phoenix reuters 660.jpg

Joaquin Phoenix’s upbringing was anything but typical. At the age of 6, he was signed by talent agents and before that he traveled with his family around Central and South America as part of a group called Children of God, which is often referred to as a cult.

Phoenix opened up about his early life experiences while speaking with Playboy.

ADVERTISEMENT

The Children of God have come under fire for alleged sexual abuse of minors and rumors that married couples switch partners within the group. Phoenix said that wasn’t the experience his family had.

“As I understand it, you’re on the outside of that group until you’re accepted. I don’t think we ever got to that point, because frankly, as it got closer, I think my parents went, ‘Wait a minute. This is more than a religious community. There’s something else going on here, and this doesn’t seem right.’ And so they left very early on,” he said.

Phoenix insisted his parents were unaware of the stranger practices within the group. He said they were introduced to the Children of God through friends.

“I think my parents thought they’d found a community that shared their ideals,” he said. “Cults rarely advertise themselves as such. It’s usually someone saying, ‘We’re like-minded people. This is a community,’ but I think the moment my parents realized there was something more to it, they got out.”

Phoenix added much of the buzz worthy Children of God behavior happened in the ‘80s, long after his family had moved on from the group.

“It starts out one way and takes some time before it evolves into something else,” he explained. “When people bring up Children of God, there’s always something vaguely accusatory about it. It’s guilt by association. I think it was really innocent on my parents’ part. They really believed, but I don’t think most people see it that way. I’ve always thought that was strange and unfair.”

After his parents left the Children of God, they changed the family’s last name from Bottom to Phoenix and his mom began working for NBC, which was his introduction into the world of agents and show biz.

Phoenix said he was thrilled to enter the limelight.

“We were always singing and playing music, and we were encouraged to express ourselves,” he recalled. “When you’re a kid, acting is an extension of playing. You have an imagination, right? If that’s encouraged and you’re in an environment where you’re given these props and opportunities to express yourself, it’s terribly exciting. I always loved it.”

Katy Perry's boyfriend Diplo disses Taylor Swift's butt; Lorde disses Diplo's manhood PDF Print E-mail

465086659_lorde_taylor_640

If you mess with Taylor Swift, you mess with Lorde!

Katy Perry's rumored boyfriend since April, Diplo, decided to restart the Taylor Swift/Katy Perry feud Wednesday, when he took a swipe at Taylor's skinny frame.

ADVERTISEMENT

ADVERTISEMENT

"Someone should make a kickstarter to get Taylor Swift a booty," he tweeted.

VIDEO: Taylor Swift Drinks Beer?!

He then took it one step further when he tweeted an actual link to a Fundly page for the joke cause, which managed to raise $45.

But it didn't take long before one of Taylor's more outspoken besties, Lorde, fired back with a pretty epic diss.

"Should we do something about your tiny penis while we're at it hm," she tweeted directly at the 36-year-old DJ/producer.

Ouch.

The latest shade-throwing can be traced back to Taylor's reported feud with Katy, which she aired out in an interview with Rolling Stone in September.

Revealing that the origin behind her song "Bad Blood" off 1989 is about a pop-star nemesis, Taylor dished, "She did something so horrible. I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.”

NEWS: Taylor Swift and Lorde Take Upscale Cooking Class 

Several Internet commenters have noted that Perry did lure a few backup dancers away from Swift's tour as she embarked on her Prismatic tour earlier this year.

Katy cryptically responded to Taylor shortly after the interview went public, tweeting, "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing ... "

Sean Penn and Charlize Theron -- Cops Called Over Her Screaming Son PDF Print E-mail

1113-sean-penn-charlize-theron-tmz-01
Sean Penn and Charlize Theron had their morning hike interrupted by cops Thursday ... after another hiker accused them of possibly mistreating Charlize's toddler ... but we're told cops determined they did nothing wrong ... TMZ has learned.

The incident went down at Vasquez Rocks in Santa Clarita, CA. Charlize and Sean were having a sunrise picnic when a female hiker with a camera stopped after she heard Charlize's 2-year-old son Jackson screaming in a tantrum. The hiker went towards the child and started filming.

We're told Charlize told the woman not to go near Jackson, so the hiker left and called the cops and claimed something bad might have happened to the kid.

We're told the deputies quickly determined nothing happened. Jackson was just on a timeout and got really upset. The deputies concluded the timeout involved no physical contact, so they left and no action will be taken.

Tony Hawk Rides a Hoverboard ... FOR REAL THIS TIME! PDF Print E-mail

Exclusive Details

111314_tony_hawk_launch Tony Hawk pulled a Marty McFly Wednesday in Santa Clarita ... when the pro skater rode a REAL hoverboard -- and the results were pretty awesome.

As you may recall ... Hawk pranked "Back to the Future" fans earlier this year when he starred in a fake hoverboard commercial ... but now, he's floating on the real deal. 

A rep for Hendo Hover says they invited Tony to their warehouse last month to try out their crowdfunded product -- which hovers an inch off the ground at 5 miles per hour -- and Wednesday Hawk took them up on the offer for a 3 hour ride.

We're told there are no plans to court Tony into becoming a sponsor ... but they'd love to have his input for their next protoype. 

Great Scott.

Here’s what George R. R. Martin said about Playboy’s sexy GRRM costume PDF Print E-mail

We do a lot of strange things as a culture, but one of the strangest has to be sexing up Halloween. Sexy Olaf. Sexy Groot. Sexy Doublemint gum. You’d think people weren’t allowed to be sexy all the other 364 days in the year, because we continue to find all the repressed sexy hiding in Disney movies and inanimate objects.

In a bit of delicious irony, Playboy took the opportunity to poke fun at the sexy side of Halloween by coming up with a number of sexy costumes they’d like to see.  One of those costumes was Sexy George R.R. Martin. And then GRRM found out about it.

On his Live Journal page last night, the author of A Song of Ice and Fire took a moment to think about how strange his life has gotten lately.

“I can’t say that I’ve ever had a thing for bearded women, but I have to confess, Sexy George R.R. Martin is… er… sexy,” Martin wrote. “But there is something deeply disturbing about being turned on by yourself.  Stranger than incest.  Or even twincest.”

Halloween is weird.

So naturally, when Spacey was on last night’s episode of the Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon challenged the actor to a game of “Wheel of Impressions.” Watch it below!

You can catch Spacey next in the video game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which goes on sale Nov. 4.

This Week on Stage: Ewan McGregor, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Sting PDF Print E-mail

This week marked the Broadway bows of actors Ewan McGregor and Maggie Gyllenhaal and one Gordon Sumner, but we all know him better as musician Sting (though, to be clear, this the composing debut of original music by Sting on Broadway; he actually appeared in a production of 3 Penny Opera on the boards 25 years ago). McGregor and Gyllenhaal are no strangers to the stage either, the former got raves for his smooth crooner in Guys and Dolls in the West End years back (why, oh why, didn’t we get that one too?), and Gyllenhaal has been quietly doing the classics downtown for some time now and brother Jake is getting in on the Broadway act too. Tyne Daly will also return to the Main Stem next spring after her triumphant, Tony-nommed turn in Terrence McNally’s Mothers and Sons this year with the David Hyde Pierce-directed musical comedy It Shoulda Been You, which will also feature ace songstress Sierra Boggess and, notably, Neil Patrick Harris’s better half David Burtka returning to Broadway after several years–and this is all in conjunction with both of them appearing on American Horror Story this season. Where, oh where, do these guys find the time? EW staffers also found some time to check out all of the new openings this week, which also include the first play by acclaimed novelist Walter Mosley and an eye-opening first part to Suzan Lori-Parks’ planned nine-part history opus (click on the links below for full reviews):

Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3)  Pultizer-winner Suzan Lori-Parks is no stranger to lofty projects (her 365 Plays/365 Days was exactly that), but her latest production at the Public Theater may be her most ambitious yet. And according to senor editor Thom Geier, it is most certainly one of her very best: “Parks’ stunning new drama is that rare work of art: one that bears the heavy burden of its subject matter—the peculiar institution of American slavery—but that carries it lightly.” EW grade: A

The Last Ship  You can hear hits like “All This Time” and “When We Dance” in rocker Sting’s new musical about shipbuilders in a coastal British town fighting the winds of change both literally and figuratively, but most of the show’s tunes are completely original, entering him in the rockers-turned-composer canon that recently has included Bono and Cyndi Lauper. Senior writer Kyle Anderson says that “despite the relative lack of variety in the music and the hole-friendly narrative, there’s a lot to like about The Last Ship…but Sting’s score remains a burden, anchoring this Ship when it should be making bigger waves.” EW grade: B–

Lift  Mystery writer Walter Mosley enters the playwriting realm with a new work about coworkers trapped in a NYC office building elevator. However, EW’s Joe McGovern thinks this first foray crashes right down to the basement floor. “The production also successfully simulates the claustrophobic dilemma on stage with its running time—it’s a painful 1 hour and 50 minutes with no intermission…perhaps producers were worried that, after a short break, the 196-seat theater would be about as full as that onstage elevator.” EW grade: D

Lips Together, Teeth Apart  Terrence McNally is all over NYC theater these days, even with an oldie-but-goodie-in this case, his 1991 Fire Island Pines-set drama about two couples navigating their marriages through the age of AIDS. “As McNally’s play bounces back and forth haphazardly between throwaway one-liners, the production starts to unravel”, says Melissa Rose Bernardo in her review, adding “perhaps we just caught them on a bad weekend.” EW grade: C+

The Real Thing  Tom Stoppard’s highly-awarded relationship drama (which–back in 1984–featured one this production’s stars, Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon, in a smaller role) gets its second Broadway revival over the course of 30 years, with Ewan McGregor and Maggie Gyllenhaal taking on the central couple, a playwright and his new actress wife who struggle to find their bliss. Thom Geier has high praise for the Broadway newbies, citing McGregor as “confident and sexy” and Gyllenhaal as “a chillier but still effective presence”. The review adds, “director Sam Gold’s fussy production blurs the distinction between scenes with a single drab set and cast-sung interludes of ’60s pop.” EW grade: B+
