Biography

San Juan, Puerto Rico
Joaquin Phoenix was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Arlyn (Dunetz) and John Bottom, and is the middle child in a brood of five.

His mother is from a Jewish family in New York, while his father, from California, is of mostly British Isles descent.

When the children were encouraged to develop their creative instincts, he followed their lead into acting. Read more...
