Biography – A Short Wiki

Joaquin Phoenix is a renowned American actor who over the course of his professional career has starred in numerous blockbuster movies and won several accolades for his fabulous performances. Having started his o-screen acting career in the early 80s, his first major gig was the 1986 film SpaceCamp and after being active in the industry for more than a decade, he finally broke into the mainstream limelight through his Academy Award-nominated performance in the 2000 hit film, Gladiator. From that breakthrough onwards, his film career has continued to be on a rapid rise and Joaquin has now become one of the most well-recognized stars of Hollywood. Out of his extensive filmography, some of the most successful gigs are Walk the Line, Signs, Irrational Man, and Joker. Outside his professional work, he is a social activist as well and has worked closely with various organizations over different causes. Lastly, coming toward his personal life, Phoenix has dated several other celebrities over the years while he is currently engaged to actress Rooney Mara.


Early Life and Childhood Career: Joaquin Rafael Bottom, better known as Joaquin Phoenix, was born on October 28, 1974, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. His parents, Arlyn (née Dunetz) and John Lee Bottom, were both from the United State mainland; his father is of mostly English descent, while his mother is an Ashkenazi Jew of Hungarian and Russian ancestry. The family were members of the religious cult Children of God, and traveled throughout South America with the cult. Eventually, when Phoenix was three years old, the family left the cult and returned to live in the United States. It was upon their return to the U.S. that they changed their last name from Bottom to Phoenix, to symbolize a new beginning, just like how the mythical bird rises from its own ashes. He has five siblings, including a half-sibling from his father’s previous relationship. Many of his siblings have nature-related names, such as River or Rain, and Phoenix called himself “Leaf” until he was fifteen, partially out of a desire to be more like his siblings.
