The video, which had been sent to Kimmel’s team by Joker director Todd Phillips, showed Phoenix trying to film a scene when he appears to be interrupted by somebody whispering in the background.
“You know…just the constant whisper…just shut the fuck up, dude,” Phoenix says. Seeming to respond to being called Cher on-set because of his diva antics, Phoenix continues: “I know you started the fucking Cher thing, Larry…You think it’s fucking funny making fun of me.”
The clip ends with Phoenix saying, “Fuck! I can’t do this, man!” before storming off-camera.
