Weird Interview of Joaquin Phoenix on Letterman

David Letterman has had weird interviews in his show. But his interview of Joaquin Phoenix last night was one for the books. Phoenix came in to promote his movie with Gwyneth Paltrow, Two Lovers. However, since his announced retirement from acting to venture into music, he seems to have lost himself somewhere.

Phoenix stayed on for over 10 minutes but mumbles through the interview saying “I don’t know” to most of Dave’s questions. The audience laughs most of the time, probably thinking that the interview was rehearsed to be funny. Offhand, I believe he may have been thrown off by Dave’s question about his fluffy beard at the start of the interview. His sunglasses make it difficult to ascertain his reactions, but it seems he was offended and continued to be offended with the audience laughing so much. On the other hand, since the audience seemed unaware of how he is taking everything, they continued to guffaw through most of the interview.

Demi Moore Reveals Beauty Secret

Finally, 45-year old Demi Moore reveals the secret to her youthful beauty — leeches. Urgh!! How far would you go to look gorgeous?

In a recent interview with David Letterman, the sexy and flawless actress disclosed how she recently went to Australia for a body cleansing which included “leech therapy.” Moore said that the medicinal leeches were first placed on her belly button and was allowed to bite her to let enzymes from their saliva get into your bloodstream. These enzymes detoxify the body.

At present, leech therapy or Hirudotherapy is used by surgeons in reconstructive surgery — usually for attachment of severed body parts such as fingers, ears, nose, or scalp. Leeches are used to reattach veins of severed body parts after the surgeon has connected the tissue and arteries. Arteries are easier for doctors to reattach since they are thick-walled while severed veins are more difficult since it is easily congested and can become stagnant. The active ingredient in the salivary secretion of leeches is called Hirudin, an anti-coagulant that prevents blood clotting. Medicinal leeches are also being used for pain relief of osteoarthritis and rheumatism because their saliva likewise contains anesthetics.

So far, all my internet research shows no proof that leeches can detoxify the body — the early Egyptians did use them to remove bad blood. I also know that leech saliva is used in some eye creams for dark eye circles. But several women who tried the eye cream said it was a total waste of money. Will you let leeches suck your blood to look like Demi? As for me, I rather doubt it — not even if the therapy is done by someone who looks like Ashton.
