Joaquin Phoenix is playing Jesus in new film but refused to do one thing: ‘Who the fuck would do that?’
Jackie Boy; if you are going to play The Son of God, you gotta go the whole route and can not leave anything out.
An early scene in the movie required the 44-year-old actor, who recently played Joker, to perform a miracle from John’s gospel, in which Jesus healed a blind man by rubbing mud in his eyes (portrayed by a woman in the film).
“I knew about that scene from the Bible, but I guess I had never really considered it,” Phoenix told CNN. “When I got there, I thought, ‘I’m not going to rub dirt in her eyes. Who the fuck would do that?’ It doesn’t make any sense. That is a horrible introduction to seeing.”
Get in line Jackie lad or JC may rise from the dead and put the maloccio on you.
