Joaquin Phoenix Biography

Early Life and Childhood Career: Joaquin Rafael Bottom, better known as Joaquin Phoenix, was born on October 28, 1974, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. His parents, Arlyn (née Dunetz) and John Lee Bottom, were both from the United State mainland; his father is of mostly English descent, while his mother is an Ashkenazi Jew of Hungarian and Russian ancestry. The family were members of the religious cult Children of God, and traveled throughout South America with the cult. Eventually, when Phoenix was three years old, the family left the cult and returned to live in the United States. It was upon their return to the U.S. that they changed their last name from Bottom to Phoenix, to symbolize a new beginning, just like how the mythical bird rises from its own ashes. He has five siblings, including a half-sibling from his father’s previous relationship. Many of his siblings have nature-related names, such as River or Rain, and Phoenix called himself “Leaf” until he was fifteen, partially out of a desire to be more like his siblings.
