Will Ferrell interviewed Joaquin Phoenix

IM:

FERRELL: I love everything. I was recently thinking about your role in Gladiator [2000], which is a big studio movie.

PHOENIX: Are you reading off prepared questions and trying to pretend that they’re just popping into your head?

FERRELL: Maybe wait to hear what I have to say: I was thinking about your role in that movie, and the reason why it works is because you’re such a little bitch.

...

FERRELL: Are you proficient in horse riding?

PHOENIX: I am not.

FERRELL: Do you remember the name of your horse?

PHOENIX: You motherfucker. [laughs] Well, here’s the thing: how could you even verify this?

FERRELL: You’re right, I can’t at all. I’m just curious.

PHOENIX: There were, in my defense, several horses. For one, there was a running joke because I always screwed up his name. I think it was Machinero.
