Ben Stiller takes a dig at Joaquin Phoenix at OscarsFebruary 23rd, 2009 - 1:57 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, February 23 (ANI): Ben Stiller showed his funny side one more time by taking a dig at Joaquin Phoenix at the recent Oscars ceremony.
The actor appeared to present the Best Cinematography trophy, alongside Natalie Portman, with a thick beard and sunglasses while chewing on gum.
Taking the joke forward, Portman said “this is ridiculous” and chastised the comic for chewing gum onstage.
Phoenix added, “OK, I”ll take it out,” and laid it on the podium.
“I want to retire from being the funny guy,” Us magazine quoted Stiller as saying.
Portman responded: “You look like you work at a Hasidic meth lab!” (ANI)
