Joaquin Phoenix still has a tough time with the death of his brother, River Phoenix, says he was in the program for 60 Minutes.
His brother, River Phoenix was an actor, and has played, among others, in the classic Stand By Me (1986). He passed away in 1993 at the age of 23 from an overdose of heroin and cocaine on the sidewalk, next to a night club in Hollywood.
He has had a huge impact on the acting career of Joaquin Phoenix, and then left him to get acquainted with the film. “I think that in pretty much every movie I make, there is a line to be found is by River, and that we all have the presence and guidance continue to be felt in our lives.”
The two brothers had taken place in 1982, in the televisiebewerking from the film ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. “For a number of years, it is difficult to write or talk about it. My mother and my sisters are the people that are a reminder of lives taken.”
The 45-year-old actor said that the manner in which the American media on the death of his brother, went about, was not a good thing for the grief process. “You’re at your most vulnerable at that time. It will fly helicopters over your house in no time, and there are people out there who are trying to get you to the house of ideas.”
