Phoenix: 'I've been hard to work with'
Joker star Joaquin Phoenix used his best actor acceptance speech to cast light on what he described as humanity's plundering of the natural world for resources.
He also touched upon his own behaviour - admitting that while he had been "hard to work with" in the past he was grateful for being given a second chance.
"I think that’s when we’re at our best, when we support each other, not when we cancel each other out for past mistakes," he added.
"But when we help each other to grow, when we educate each other, when we guide each other toward redemption. That is the best of humanity."
