Apparently, Joaquin announced pretty randomly that he was retiring from Hollywood.  He did so to a red carpet interviewer from Extra.  Claaaaassy.

Ok, seriously…retire, do what you want to do.  Live out your dreams to be a big music icon, whatever.  Just don’t announce it when you are obviously on narcotics. That isn’t really asking for much.  I mean, even if he is just on Ambient or some bullshit, he is on something (See: Above — Sometimes he can’t even spell his own effin name).  If I sound indigent, it is only because this is so trite and so dramatic.  He could have just…you know, stopped acting for a while, or work on music on the side.  That would have worked.  Plus what is up with Casey Affleck?  Acting all like, “Didn’t you hear? He put out an album.”  Neither of them came off well for me in this craziness.
