Full Joaquin Phoenix News
Joaquin is a strict vegan and will not wear costumes made out of animal skin. He once refused to wear shoes during a photo shoot for Prada because they were made out of leather.
He was born Joaquin Raphael, but at the age of four he decided that he wanted a more earthy name, like his elder siblings River and Rain, so while he was raking leaves with his father he decided on Leaf. In the early '90s he took back his birth name.
