Joaquin Phoenix - Joaquin Phoenix Terrified By Fans

Actor Joaquin Phoenix feels terrified when fans approach him because he is not used to dealing with autograph-hunters.

The Walk The Line star tries his best to avoid the Hollywood lifestyle, and admits he feels scared and "overwhelmed" when he has to deal with members of the public who recognise him from his films.

He tells Britain's Event magazine, "Celebrity is so not part of my life. If I'm walking around and somebody comes up with a camera, it terrifies me. I can imagine that if you are Johnny Depp, for years you've had such a level of fame that you are somewhat accustomed to it and you expect it when you go out.

"I've managed to avoid it to the extent where I sometimes get trapped in situations that I don't know how to deal with. I feel overwhelmed. But I'd rather be overwhelmed in these moments and enjoy my life privately. I've been able to have the life I want."

Phoenix is convinced he has managed to lead a more "normal" life compared to his fellow stars, adding, "Compared to other people in the business I do live a normal life.

"I can't get off set and away from it fast enough. I leave and I don't talk to anybody in the business at all for a couple of weeks. I hate the beach. I don't like travelling. I'm not being evasive. I just don't like the things that most people would like."
