  117. 117. 18 In October 2008, J retired from acting to pursue a career as a rapper.The decision took many by surprise.He grew a heavy,bushy beard and took to wearing oversized sunglasses all the time. Casey Affleck,his then brother-in-law,found the decision fascinating and decided to document J's journey. J began performing in public, but his ‘rapping’ wasn’t met with much enthusiasm.In March 2009, he was heckled while performing in a Miami club. He jumped off the stage and attacked the heckler. Later, in a bizarre interview with David Letterman, his desire to pursue rapping was met with laughter from both Letterman and the audience. Chicago-based psychiatrist Paul Dobransky posited that Phoenix was mentally ill. “There is something wrong, and it’s beyond drug abuse.”J's publicist, took umbrage with Dobransky’s statements and mocked Dobransky by stating "Hope they spelled his name right". During the 2009 Academy Awards, Ben Stiller poked fun at J's dishevelled look by dressing up as him and mockingly announcing “I just want to retire from being the funny guy, that’s all.” The bit drew huge laughs from the audience. Later in 2010, when the “documentary,” I’m Still Here came out, Affleck and J finally fessed up that it was all a massive, elaborate hoax. The idea behind the documentary was to “explore celebrity, and explore the relationship between the media and the consumers and the celebrities themselves.” J carried out the charade for almost two years, staying ‘in character’ every single time he appeared in public.
