Picture - Joaquin Phoenix, Johnny Cash and Walk the Line

FEARS FOR “BLOATED” PHOENIX Actor Joaquin Phoenix was the toast of Hollywood after his star turn as rocker Johnny Cash in Walk the Line. But friends of the actor are said to be increasingly concerned for his health as his appearance has noticeably declined since announcing his retirement from the screen in October (08). In just two short months, the star has gone from a clean-cut, chiselled heartthrob to a bloated, scruffy mess – as illustrated by our series of pictures of Phoenix over the past seven weeks. Onlookers who spotted the star during a night out in Miami Beach, Florida on Monday (29Dec08) were shocked at how rapidly his looks have deteriorated. And friends are said to fear for the well-being of the star, who received treatment for alcoholism in 2005.
