Joaquin Phoenix reveals that he & # 39; obsessed & # 39; wax and a & # 39; disorder & # 39; developed after losing 52 POUNDS for the role of Joker
He cast an incredible 52 pounds for his role in Joker.
And Joaquin Phoenix has now revealed that he has a & # 39; disorder & # 39; has developed and & # 39; obsessed & # 39; has been touched by his new weight – even investigating daily differences, such as 0.3 pounds.
The 44-year-old spoke Monday with the Associated Press where he also spoke about the positive changes he noticed when he dropped the weight.
Not healthy: Joaquin Phoenix has revealed that shedding 52 pounds for the Joker is somewhat & # 39; his weight, wherever he had a & # 39; disorder & # 39; developed over pounds
& # 39; Once you reach the target weight, everything changes, & # 39; he began.
& # 39; Like so many of the hard things, waking up every day and being obsessed with about 0.3 pounds. Turn right? And you really develop as a disorder. I mean, it's wild. & # 39;
He continued to explain that although he had expected that he would feel someone hormonal and hungry, he did not expect greater physical abilities that would help his character.
Speaking: & # 39; Like so much of what is difficult, wakes up every day and becomes obsessed with over 0.3 pounds. Turn right? And you really develop as a disorder. I mean, it's wild & # 39;
& # 39; I think the interesting thing for me is what I expected and expected with weight loss, were these feelings of dissatisfaction, hunger, some kind of vulnerability and weakness, & # 39; he added.
& # 39; But what I had not counted on, was this sense of fluidity that I felt physically. & # 39;
& # 39; I felt that I could move my body in ways I couldn't have done before. And I think that really suited a part of the physical movement that started to emerge as an important part of the character. & # 39;
There were benefits: & # 39; But what I had not counted on was this feeling of fluidity that I felt physically & # 39;
Joaquin recently told Access Hollywood that weight loss was not due to hunger and only ate one apple a day.
& # 39; It wasn't an apple a day. No, you also have lettuce and steamed green beans, & he joked.
The Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominated three times made sure that he lost weight in a safe and manageable way.

& # 39; It is something that I have done before and you work with a doctor who is regulated and supervised and is safe, & # 39; he shared.
Director Todd Phillips, however, did not seem to help Joaquin on his weight loss journey and left salty snacks.
& # 39; Todd had these f ** king pretzels that I love, & # 39; the actor remembered.
& # 39; And he would just have bags in his office! And that was difficult. & # 39;
The Joker will be released in cinemas in the US on Friday 4 October.
