The Top Five Joaquin Phoenix Crying Scenes in Movies

Joaquin Phoenix is kind of an odd actor when it comes to crying in a movie. He can seem mean, selfish, and petulant, he can be angry and ready to take out his aggression on someone, or he can be completely doe-eyed and rather innocent-looking. It’s a range that a lot of actors have but few do it better than he does. As an actor and a person he seems like kind of an oddball since he’s almost given up on the industry it seems at some points, but then he’s come back with vengeance and shown people that he’s

‘Grace and Frankie’ Review: A Strong and Surprising Season 4 Dares to Face Death — and Gives It the Finger

‘Grace and Frankie’ Review: A Strong and Surprising Season 4 Dares to Face Death — and Gives It the Finger
When does a funny story become sad? Typically in television, this kind of question is framed around arrested development: A grown man is still acting like he’s in college, and certain events force him to look himself in the mirror and say, “Getting that drunk and acting that dumb isn’t funny anymore. It’s sad.”

But what if it’s not arrested development? What if it’s unstoppable regression? Continuing its fearless quest to address the anxieties associated with aging, “Grace and Frankie” dares to ask if its characters’ wild misadventures aren’t actually funny anymore. Maybe they’re scary. Maybe these two best friends are losing control of their minds, bodies, and lives. Maybe they don’t even know it’s happening, as it’s happening. Maybe they need help.

Mila Kunis named Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year

The Hasty Pudding award is given to one man and one woman each year by the Hasty Pudding Theatrical Club at Harvard.

So it is a true honor to be included in such company, even though the media doesn’t give it the same celebrity status as they do the Oscars. Mila definitely has the long
