Phoenix, 35, joined ex Liv Tyler to tape a promo for To Write Love on Her Arms, a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. In another promo spot, Phoenix even jokes around with Miley Cyrus, who is also doing work for TWLOHA. She teaches him who Lady Gaga is.
