A clip went viral on social media, wherein Joaquin Phoenix was heard complaining about a cinematographer named Larry for whispering on set and calling him Cher. The 47-year-old star said, “The constant whispering, just shut the f*ck up dude. I’m trying to like find something real. f*ck up dude. f*ck. Sorry, [ bleep ]. It’s not a big deal. It’s not a big deal. Yeah, it kinda is. f*ck. I know you started the f*cking Cher thing, Larry. f*cking making fun of me. Like I’m a f*cking diva. It’s not even an insult. Cher, really?

After the short video wrapped, the actor was visibly flustered. The viral clip was later played at Jimmy Kimmel Live! and the host-comedian asked Joaquin Phoenix about the behind-the-scene video, the actor was visibly embarrassed about it. The Academy-winning actor said, “Look, sometimes, sometimes movies get intense, because you’re a lot of people in a small space and you’re trying to find something. So you can feel intense, but um, that was supposed to be private” before going on to apologize for his words.”
