They say a lie goes half way around the world before the truth has got its boots on – just ask Joaquin Phoenix.

In case you haven’t heard yet the 40-year-old actor announced on The Late Show earlier this week that he is getting married to his yoga instructor.

Except he isn’t. It was yet another prank by the Walk The Line star, who famously also gave another crazy interview to David Letterman in 2009.

The fact that it was all a load of bullshit didn’t stop half the world’s media from following up the ‘scoop’ – only for the star to come clean yesterday.

“I think my life is so boring, and it seemed like something exciting to talk about and I wanted the audience to like me,” he told Good Morning America.

Still we gotta hand it to him. If you watch the interview on video (below), you can see that all the clues were there that it was a fake announcement. If you haven’t seen it yet it’s worth a look.

The actor even spun a yarn about falling in love during a yoga position called “harnessing the hog.”

Ok Joaquin, we get it. You were feeling dull so you decided to fill the airwaves with a load of garbage. We know the feeling.

Maybe next time we’re passing a movie house playing one of your films we’ll just walk on by – and play a game of harness the hog instead. Meanwhile Ginger Clam is pleased to announce that she’s getting married to her shrink in a pink tutu etc etc ..
