Over a year has passed since Joaquin Phoenix baffled the American public when he appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman — sporting a bedraggled beard, sunglasses and looking more plump than usual. The two time Oscar nominee mumbled his way through an uncomfortable interview with the comedic late-night host. Wednesday night, however, a clean-shaven, thinner Joaquin returned to the Late Show and apologized for his behavior (which was all part of the genius behind the Casey Affleck-directed film I’m Still Here.)

“I mean, I think that you’ve interviewed many, many people and I assumed that you would know the difference between a character and a real person,” Joaquin told David Letterman last night. “I hope I didn’t offend you in any way.”

“Oh, no. Oh, no, no, no,” Dave responded. “I’m telling you, it was so much fun. It was batting practice, you know what I mean? Every one of them was a dinger. I was looking for a beat down, and I got one… I want to thank you for that.”

Dave, however, did want to set the record straight that he was not part of the production and was pretty much in the dark about the whole thing.

“Was there a script that you and I were working with?” he asked Joaquin, who responded quickly, “No.”
