Hollywood can and will do more, if it’s up to Joaquin Phoenix.
On Sunday night, the “Joker” star won Best Actor at the Golden Globes for his acclaimed performance and he decided to use his speech for a good cause.
Explaining that he didn’t actually like “rocking the boat,” the actor talked about the important issue of climate change, expressing that the celebrities in the room needed to take responsibility and make changes in their own lives.
“We don’t have to take private jets to Palm Springs,” Phoenix said.
The actor has been a vocal supporter for action on climate change as well as animal rights, and also began his speech by commending the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for making the 2020 Golden Globes a vegan event.
