Joaquin Phoenix is a great actor in practically all his movies. It's really a shame that his brother died from a drug overdose. His acting was so brilliant too. Two exceptional actors. It's terrible that we've lost so many people because of drugs

I'm all inspired by River's mother. She's a true parent through and through. Although it was hard for Joaquin to even say his brother's name, because it was that painful, she and his family kept his memory and essence alive. Even through loss, she parents with love and purpose. Even with her own sense of moment of grief throughout her life, she welcomes it. Why? It's not hard to answer, because it keeps her connected to her deceased child, and further far more ready to keep living in his name, and for her children. How awesome is she.

I think why people find him 'weird' is because he's literally a normal guy and he doesn't let fame get to his head.

Shame he has kind of lived in his brother's shadow, but Joaquin has always been a way better actor! Hands DOWN! This man is super talented, but doesn't seem to know it. Hes so humble.

He was an inspiration to me growing up. He's one of the Actors that I aspired to be. I've belonged to one fan club in my life and it was Rivers, when I was 10. I got a pin in the mail saying "run to the river with love and peace will follow". I remember the day I heard the news my junior year in H.S. I was quietly mourning a stand up guy. Thanks for keeping his existence alive and blessings to the talented family ❣️

I love this dude. I used to think he was a little weird but now I just see he's real and doesn't seem to care about the fame & cares about his craft as an actor. I loved that he cussed on air. That would totally be me.

04-03-04 definitely no timeline on grief, that's the date we lost our oldest son Christopher to a single car automobile accident with a utility pole. He was driving too fast and lost control and sustained head injuries he couldn't overcome. He was only 20. No expiration date on grief. Just acceptance. And it has affected the entire family, we have 2 other children that were 14 and 16 at the time of his death. It's been hard and continues to be even 15 years later!😥
