River Phoenix photographed at his home by Bruce Weber

“River Phoenix isn’t crop-headed, of course. And he doesn’t wear bermudas. He arrived at my hotel in his mother’s car wearing a jade green Gap sweatshirt, navy blue long johns, and tennis shoes. He’s grown since we last saw him (in Running of Empty - what a tearjerker). He’s now 5’11 (barefoot) and slim as a willow, and hung with wisps of beard like Florida’s Spanish moss. He wouldn’t shave them off, even for Bruce Weber’s pictures.”

Vogue, May 1990

My poor Mike… what have that gorgeous bitch done to you?

Want to hug him.

I don’t know. Anyhow, how could I be, when I’m sitting here with this thing (a knit cap) on my head, cross-eyed and confused?

 River Phoenix

You’ve been called a sex symbol. Curious words. What do they mean to you?

The rain was still coming down, but only in large, separately visible drops that were also pelting the ground literally one at a time.

The campfire scene in My Own Private Idaho though…


“This fight is a series of stills. The other inspiration for it is: there’s a scene in ‘My Own Private Idaho’ — in fact two scenes that are done in a similar way. Quite a different kind of scene, but I think that’s also where it comes from.” -Wes Anderson

don’t spill stuff on Mikey


More River perfection on what would have been his 44th birthday! My River and James Franco shelf. Two of my favourite actors! Thinking of River today and all the wonderful things he did, all the love he spread during his life, and the happiness and inspiration he continues to share with the world! Much love to you, River! #riverphoenix #happybirthday #love #peace #beautiful #jamesfranco


Happy birthday, River! He would have been 44 years old today. Here’s my framed photographs of River in my home. He is more than just my favourite actor, he is a constant source of inspiration, beauty and light! Much, much love to this incredible soul! ❤️
