I absolutely had to. Thank you, Joaquin Phoenix & @toddphillips1 for instilling such a fiery passion & inspiration inside of me. I’ve always had a passion for darker roles & after seeing this movie twice in a row – I simply had to submerge into this character. Thank you to my incredible team. Thank you @rudentertainment for directing & guiding me through this experience, so that I was comfortable enough to dive deep. And so that I was correct & true to Joker. Thank you @lexianimation @lexi_okimura for being my right hand on set. Thank you for slaughtering my makeup & making me feel like Joker himself. Thank you @directedbyjon for being on set with us & helping us find the best lighting. #GafferGoals #FrankSinatra #ThatsLife #Joker #JoaquinPhoenix #ToddPhillips #JoJoGomez #JoJoGomezChoreography
