Joaquin's Letterman appearance is instant classic

The Associated Press, Thursday, February 12, 2009, 8:35am (PST)

NEW YORK (AP) -- Joaquin Phoenix's interview with David Letterman started off odd and ended in full-blown weirdness, instantly joining Farrah Fawcett on the list of late-night appearances memorable for the wrong way.

The actor briefly forgot the name of his "Two Lovers" co-star, Gwyneth Paltrow, stuck gum under the edge of Letterman's "Late Show" desk and appeared to swear at bandleader Paul Shaffer for laughing at him during Wednesday night's show.

Clips of the bearded, sunglass-wearing Phoenix were racing around the Internet on Thursday.
