    Default River Phoenix

    River Jude Phoenix (August 23, 1970 – October 31, 1993) was an American film actor and teen icon. He was the oldest brother of actors Rain, Joaquin, Liberty, and Summer Phoenix.
    Phoenix began acting at age 10 in television commercials. He appeared in diverse roles, making his first notable appearance in the 1986 film Stand by Me, a well-received coming-of-age film based on a novella by Stephen King. Phoenix made a transition into more adult-oriented roles with Running on Empty (1988), playing the son of fugitive parents in a well-received performance that earned him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor nomination, and My Own Private Idaho (1991), playing a gay hustler in search of his estranged mother. For his performance in the latter, Phoenix garnered enormous praise and won a Volpi Cup at the Venice Film Festival, along with Best Actor from the National Society of Film Critics. He was listed by John Willis as one of twelve "promising new actors of 1986".
    On October 31, 1993, Phoenix died of a drug overdose on the sidewalk outside the West Hollywood nightclub The Viper Room.

    Acting is like a Halloween mask that you put on.

    Commercials were too phony for me. I just didn't like selling products I didn't believe in.
    River Phoenix

    Everything is ironic to me. There are moments I find hysterical, but I'm probably the only one who would find that, except for a few people.
    River Phoenix

    I can't on my own change the regime in South Africa or teach the Palestinians to learn to live with the Israelies, but I can start with me.
    River Phoenix

    I did my best work in The Mosquito Coast. I know it wasn't such a big hit, but for me it was more meaningful than anything else I'd ever done.
    River Phoenix

    I don't want to die in a car accident. When I die it'll be a glorious day. It'll probably be a waterfall.
    River Phoenix

    I have a lot of chameleon qualities, I get very absorbed in my surroundings.
    River Phoenix

    I sometimes lie, especially about personal things, because what does it matter? I am a kind of minute commodity, my name is no longer my own.
    River Phoenix

    I try to lie as much as I can when I'm interviewed. It's reverse psychology. I figure if you lie, they'll print the truth.
    River Phoenix

    I would never, never do anything unless I believed in it.
    River Phoenix

    I wouldn't eat a hamburger for 40,000 dollars.
    River Phoenix

    I'd like to play every type of character, but only once. I like to expierence things.
    River Phoenix

    I'm really normal. I play football, go to the beach, drive. We have dogs. I can imagine people calling me a character, but I'm Joe Straight.
    River Phoenix

    I've been wanting to go into music ever since I can remember. I mean even before I became an actor. I just thought it would be a tough field to break into, so I became an actor instead.
    River Phoenix

    It still strikes me as strange that anyone could have any moral objection to someone else's sexuality. It's like telling someone else how to clean their house.
    River Phoenix

    It's a great feeling to think that I can be a friend to so many people through my movies.
    River Phoenix

    Music is a hobby, because I'm not making any money out of it, but I put just as much conviction into that as I do into my acting.
    River Phoenix

    Music is a whole oasis in my head. The creation process is so personal and fulfilling.
    River Phoenix

    Music is my main goal, but I'm not going to rush a record out. There are so many actors who have come out with albums these days. I don't want to do it because it's the thing to do. I want to wait until the time is right.
    River Phoenix

    People wonder if I'll always be a part of this family and the answer is yes. My family has a lot of good energy going in one direction and because of it, we get a lot of things done. That's why I'll always spend a lot of time at Camp Phoenix.
    River Phoenix

    Rich kids gave us their old clothes. They were the best clothes we ever had. We were these very pure, naive, poor children. The rich kids called us a lot of names but it never bothered us because we didn't know what the words meant.
    River Phoenix

    Vegetarianism is a link to perfection and peace.
    River Phoenix

    We are taught to consume. And that's what we do. But if we realized that there really is no reason to consume, that it's just a mind set, that it's just an addiction, then we wouldn't be out there stepping on people's hands climbing the corporate ladder of success.
    River Phoenix

    We were constantly moving to different countries and adjusting to new things. It was such a free feeling. I'm glad I didn't have a traditional upbringing.
    River Phoenix

    When I was in first grade, everyone made fun of my name, of course. I think it's kind of a big name to hold up when you're nine years old. It seemed goofy. I used to tell people I wanted to change the world and they used to think, 'This kid's really weird'.
    River Phoenix

    When I was old enough to realize all meat was killed, I saw it as an irrational way of using our power, to take a weaker thing and mutilate it. It was like the way bullies would take control of younger kids in the schoolyard.

    remember him well. it was a bummer when he OD'd, since he did seem to be very promising.

    reading those quotes, more than anything else a philosopher emerges. i want to say Ni leading, due to his popularity and emotional magnetism, i'd say IEI.

    those who are easily shocked.....should be shocked more often

    Yeah, he would probably one of the A-listers if he were still alive today. I happened to come across his interview recently and got intrigued to know what his type might be. He seemed like someone who had a lot of depth for his age.

    Lol, I was going to say that his quotes reek of B&D, both tone- and content-wise.

    That group of siblings must have had hippy enneagram 4 parents who couldn't give their children normal names.
