Joaquin Phoenix comes to Gwyneth Paltrow's rescue, but does not rap (sorry) ... in this scene at least.

Two-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix has made plenty of headlines lately; first, for announcing his impending retirement from acting; then for his subsequent "career reinvention" as a rapper.

Yes, a rapper.

Is it all a hoax? We're not exactly sure yet. Probably. But we do know that Phoenix does indeed drop rhymes in his new indie drama, 'Two Lovers.' He plays a Brooklyn bachelor torn between two lovely ladies (Gwyneth Paltrow and Vinessa Shaw).

'Two Lovers' could be Phoenix's last film. But since when do rappers ever actually mean it when they say they're "retiring"?
