"You're finally going to get what's coming to you Jimmy!"
@George manBush, Are you sure you don't want to phrase that some other way? Like "You get what you deserve" maybe with a curse word thrown in for dramatic effect?
@18bluecat, "You're awful 18bluecat. Pointing out my half assed quote. Inviting me on this app. You just wanted to make fun of me. You’re just like the rest of them. How about another joke, 18bluecat? What do you get when you cross a mentally ill loner with a society that abandons him and treats him like trash?! I’ll tell you what you get! You get what you f**king deserve!"
@George manBush, *chuckles* I'm in danger
Fvck Fallon dude is an a s s hat
@Velocitaptor, you can say ass man
Did this really happen?
@RandomObserver, I sure hope so
@RandomObserver, it's a quote from the movie. However Jimmy Kimmel was pretty disrespectful to him through the entire interview, throwing "complements" that were actually insults, like "you lost some weight for this role, like A LOT of weight"
"Well a little weight, yes"
"Yeah a lot of weight"
Eventually Jimmy says he has some footage from off set, and he shows it. Joaquin was in his dressing room, he was clearly under a lot of stress, and he was swearing about a guy calling him a diva. He wasn't being aggressive, far from it, he apologized to the guy a few times saying, I'm sorry it's not your fault I know. When the footage was over, he was visably uncomfortable, and his speech showed he was quite embarrassed about the whole thing, and the entire time Jimmy is laughing at him with that stupid fake laugh. The irony behind Jimmy's attack on Jaoquin's character is unfathomable if you've seen the movie.
@Duncan5769, it's Jimmy Fallon...
@Duncan5769, thank you sir.
@Duncan5769, he was talking shjt about Joaquin’s performance? Has he not seen the film? That was undoubtedly one of my favorite films of all time. His portrayal of the character was phenomenal, in my opinion. I don’t know a lot about the comics or how true to the original story the movie is, but I really enjoyed the new take on it. I would even go so far as to say that I prefer Joaquin’s Joker to Heath Ledger’s, which is really saying something since I also thoroughly enjoyed Heath’s performance as well. The film isn’t perfect, but I think it’s quite absurd to claim that Joaquin didn’t portray the character well.
@NotFlat, he wasn't attacking his acting, he was attacking the actor. At one point he implied we don't know much about him, so who knows what he's like in real life, we only have the joker to go off of.
@Duncan5769, wow, that’s even worse. Maybe he prefers to keep to himself. What does his personal life have to do with his acting? I’ve never understood the fascination with the personal lives of celebrities. If they don’t wish to stand in the spotlight constantly, why force them? Let people be who they want to be and just appreciate them for the art they create.
@Duncan5769, they planned that whole thing
@bhohfeld, maybe he went on both and this scene was meant to parody what he wanted to do after everything that happened with Jimmy Kimmel?
@Marie Celeste, I'm not really buying that to be honest. It seems more like media cover up. They can't have Jimmy Kimmel looking bad, so they say it was a joke from the start. But the media has been pushing an anti joker narrative sense before the movie even launched, and Kimmel was being an ass the entire interview. It doesn't even make sense as a joke, it only caused outrage, and why wouldn't it? There is no way I'm that room of writers, that no one said "Hey people would probably misinterpret this and get mad at us."
@Duncan5769, which is exactly what Jimmy Kimmel would do. Theyre pushing any button they can to try and create controversy around this movie
@Duncan5769, I'd say that other than the video that he showed and when talking about the breakdancing it seemed like a standard interview to me where he sort of was just trying to keep up a conversation
@magrar, I don't know, like what about when he was talking about how he doesn't like dancing in public, because it's a personal thing for him, and he can be free and authentic or whatever it was. Jimmy Kimmel starts making fun of that, and Phoneix even called him out on it.
@Duncan5769, yeah thats why I mentioned that part, I feel like thats the point where it got a bit insulting but I still don't think it had very much purposeful intent to insult Phoenix as a person
@magrar, I must have missed that. Still if it was a joke, and the purpose of it was to represent the movie, the punchline would have been Jaoquin saying a quote from the movie. "Wanna hear another joke?" Something like that.
After what happened to the last Joker, I'd be genuinely worried
After the first two guys on the subway, why is the Joker being lauded as a hero for killing all the other people? He shoots a talk show host in the head? Why is that commendable.
I didn't really get Joker i guess
@Iswearimfunny, in what world is the joker a hero? What gave you the idea that joker was supposed to be a hero? Or even a good guy for that matter?
