This Video of Joaquin Phoenix’s Forehead is Legitimately Amazing

By 07.17.14


Joaquin Phoenix spent a majority of his screen time in Her being a sad sack, lamenting his inability to find true and perfect love. All in all, it was a pretty solid performance — one which earned him a Golden Globe nomination.

But a closer study of his work reveals he should have won ALL the acting awards. Keep an eye on his forehead in this pivotal scene.

That is immense talent. Show me another artist in the game who can effortlessly turn his forehead into a Mac from Mac and Me. Go ahead. I’ll wait.

Was Spike Jonze even aware such a compelling physical comedy was playing out in his serious film? Is it all part of another superweird Phoenix performance piece? Can we get the forehead to appear on Letterman?

So many questions.

But for now, let’s just bask in the brilliance.

About Kyle Koster... Whenever you read a blog and think, "this is something that didn't need to be on the internet," you can bet I am responsible for it. I left a promising career in actual journalism to make GIFS and watch sports. No regrets. Oh yeah, I talked to Justin Bieber once and it was OK. Send tips/tell me I suck: or
