American-Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds has congratulated Joker for becoming the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time. Joaquin Phoenix starrer Joker has garnered a whopping $258.7 million at the US Box Office over the past 21 days and a worldwide collection of $788.3m. The Deadpool star accepted defeat by posting a photo of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker on the stairs and a list of characters Phoenix has beaten. He shared an edited version of the poster for Joker in a Friday morning tweet. The list included Deadpool, Neo from The Matrix, Pennywise from It and Jesus from The Passion of Christ, among others. The movie has been widely praised by the audience worldwide for Phoenix's portrayal of the DC villain.
A video clip has been shared online in which the star can be seen entering the room, where the audience was in shock. He then points at the audience and said that he can assure that they are mad at him. He then addressed the crowd and hoped that they enjoyed the movie. He also asked the audience to tell him if they are not impressed by his movie and ultimately thanked them once again for watching. He received a massive round of applause.
Phoenix is one among the few superstars to appear on the movie with clown make-up and he has some pretty tough acts to follow. He also revealed that he did not think too much about past portrayals of the character. He said that his character in the recent movie is important because everybody can interpret it whatever way they want. He said that characters play a unique and important role in most of the movies and it really indulges the audience to participate in the movie and he finds it interesting.
