Paparazzi Photos Show Joaquin Phoenix Lost A Lot of Weight

Joker starts filming in NYC next week and Joaquin Phoenix is already in town. A few candid photos have been snapped of him and he doesn’t look the same. Phoenix has lost a lot of weight ahead of the filming.

Just Jared shared some paparazzi photos of Phoenix walking around NYC with director Todd Phillips. Phoenix was never a heavy guy, but you can clearly tell he’s lost weight. Joker is typically portrayed as tall and skinny, so he’s probably just prepping for the role.

Joker will be released on October 4th, 2019.

Hi! I'm Shaina aka the Jokergurl. I've been studying comics (namely Batman) since I was 12 years old, and possibly even before that. My forte is being up on absolutely everything there is to know about the Caped Crusader, and both the Clown Prince and Princess of Crime. I recently graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with an MA in English and Creative Writing and an MFA in Creative Writing from National University. I am also a Digital Marketing expert. I have a cat Strawberry and a dog Ashes and spend most of my time reading, editing, cosplaying, and gaming on Game of Honor. Have a happy!
