[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>[ BLEEP ].>>Jimmy: TRAINING FOR THE DANCING? OR WAS THAT ALL JUST COMING FROM INSIDE?>>YEAH, THERE WERE TWO SEQUENCES. I WORKED WITH THIS CHOREOGRAPHER NAMED MICHAEL ARNOLD WHO WORKED ON THE SEQUENCE WITH THE STEPS AND THE SEQUENCE WHERE I’M THE CLOWN, WE WORKED ON THOSE, BUT THAT PIECE WAS SOMETHING THAT REALLY WAS A REACTION TO THE SCORE TODD HAD JUST RECEIVED THAT BIT OF SCORE FROM THE COMPOSER. AND WE WERE JUST TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO WITH THAT SCENE, AND HE STARTED PLAYING ME THAT MUSIC, AND WE JUST DECIDED THAT IT, WE WANTED SOMETHING THAT WAS JUST UM, ILLUSTRATED THIS TRANSFORMATION INTO JOKER THAT WAS NONVERBAL, AND THAT’S WHAT WE CAME UP WITH.>>Jimmy: IS THAT TYPICALLY HOW IT GOES?

  1. How did this guy, Jimmy Kimmel, get an interview with the most talented actor alive today. He has no idea that Joaquin wants to take the interview serious and can’t read any verbal cues or body language that Joaquin presents multiple times. It’s a shame that Joaquin has given, in my opinion, best single performance given by an actor and yet, Jimmy can’t ask one question that can live up to the testament of such a respectable actor.

  2. He looks so uncomfortable . Jim kept asking him questions he didn’t want to answer and he looked really pressured into doing it. he was making fun of him 🥺

  3. He shouldn´t have come to Kimmel´s show, he just made fun of him, I am sorry for Joaquin – look at his face how shocked he was. Kimmel is whole fake personality!

  4. This is the worst interview ever! And u can see it in his eyes when he tells jimmy “your laughing but it isn’t a joke” he doesn’t ask any genuine deep questions… he laughs and asks condescending questions as if he’s talking to a kid! Disrespectful and embarrassing to watch.

  5. Jimmy Kimmel has become the biggest most unprofessional ass hole on television. Safe to say Joaquin handled the situation like a total pro.

  6. Jaoquin Phoenix was very gracious during this interview with Jimmy Kimmel.

    I do not usually, if ever, join in on flame wars, but Kimmel really was a let down here. Could not dig even a quarter inch below the surface to show us something of this supremely gifted actor. Just had to keep formula and try to humiliate-in-jest.

  7. Anyone else remember a similar interview Phoenix did with Letterman that resembled a lot of what went down in the movie? Wonder if that was an inspiration for such a portrayal as well, even though that was for another film entirely…

  8. Joaquin: "hey Jimmy, you wanna hear a joke?"
    Jimmy: "let's go to commercial"l…..and screeches out of the parking lot at 70mph.

    this is the Deplorables vs the Demwits in 2020. Can't wait!! KAG 2020

  9. I always thought Heath Ledgers Joker could never be topped but Joaquin Phoenix is by far the best Joker ever, stunning movie with a ferocious performance.

  10. I really wanted Joaquin to say that one line form the Joker movie of the host scenes death, especially when jimmy showed an unnecessary video of Joaquin, I could feel the embarrassment.

  11. Joaquin is way too real for this ill shot show. This show is almost as bad as the Robert Deniro hosted show in the movie. I wish Joaquin would tell jimmy a knock knock joke…….

  12. Everyone's attacking Kimmel and crying tears for Joaquin here. I really enjoyed the joker and respected his acting, but I was disappointed to see how much he was acting like a grumpy brooding teenager here. From the start of the interview he just wanted to disagree with everything Jimmy said. And the thing with the break dancing, Jimmy made a little joke about it and Joaquin acted like he assaulted his innermost self. Like, you're on a talk show, lighten up a little bit.

  13. This is going down just mike the Murray scene in Joker. After jimmy was making fun of his breakdancing i thought a "Your just like the rest of them! BANG!"

  14. The whole thing is fake guys,u really think that jimmy would randomly show a video of Joaquin swearing at someone without his permission? The whole point of this was to make you guys more interested in watching the movie because the interview seems so terrible

  15. Jimmy, buddy, you should learn to interview. What an awful person you are. Joaquin, amazing as always 👋.
    Ps, se le nota la envidia a Jimmy, queriendo dejarlo como menos al maravilloso Joaquín 🤷‍♀️

  16. Joaquin just seems like a nice private guy, who does not ask for others approval and accepts himself…Jimmy trying to pull him out of his confort for a more entertaining interview felt very mean spirited by the end. Joaquin felt so much embarrassment and shame im sure that the comment about his publicist was very honest.

  17. This is such an unprofessional interview. Jimmy could have handled it so much better but instead made fun of him and brought up something Joaquin clearly didn't want the whole world to see.

  18. Jimmy, i felt really crossed the line on that one- You are seriously going to play a clip of him snapping at someone and make him look bad?? Joaquin looked so uncomfortable and embarrassed.

  19. God’s sake, u can’t be that stupid, this is strategy of marketing, don’t u see the amount of comments talking about the the relation between the film and the interview, that’s what they wanted; people to spread how awful the interview of the show was, the more they talk, the more it spreads, the more they see

  20. Wow jimmy kimmel sucks. Does he have no clue how intense making movies get? These actors become different people and are under immense pressure. Especially in a role like that, where I’m sure “Larry” and everyone else there we’re on the same emotional level as Joaquin. Probably still not quite on his level. I’m glad I’ve never watched jimmy kimmel. He’s extremely superficial.

  21. Poor showmanship. Clearly that was intended as a malicious swing at jaquin phoenix, it could be because of a scene that sends a strong messege in the movie (if you've seen, you know the one 😏). Or something on a personal level, I Don't know. But that was harsh putting him in the spot like that.
