Joaquin Phoenix is a very popular American actor, music video director, producer and social activist. Born on October 28, 1974, this gifted actor shot to fame after starring as Commodus in the 2000 classic ‘Gladiator’. He received critical appreciation and worldwide acclaim for his portrayal as the legendary musician Johnny Cash in the 2005 biographical film ‘Walk The Line’.
This tall and broad good-looking man has a very prominent scar on his lip. The Joaquin Phoenix ‘scar’ has been a widely speculated topic. Some say that he was involved in an accident as a child while others say that he was born with it.
Joaquin told the media that contrary to belief his scar is actually a birth mark. He claims that when his mom was pregnant with him, she was lying on a hammock and got these intense pains. It felt like some force caused the pain. Then he was born. A few weeks later when she took him to a doctor, he told her that Joaquin looks like a kid with a repaired cleft lip. She told the doctor that he did not have a repaired cleft lip and he was actually born this way. So now we know that the sexy scar is just a birthmark.
