Joaquin Phoenix ended his “Jimmy Kimmel Live” interview on Thursday in bed with the host. The Inherent Vice star has been doing a lot of press, and apparently he got a bit tired and needed a nap. He insisted Kimmel’s couch folded out into a bed, although Kimmel was skeptical. Sure enough, Phoenix was able to turn the talk show furniture into a nice sleeping spot. Check out the video below!

Earlier in the interview, Phoenix explained why he’s so uncomfortable when he’s nominated for Golden Globes and other awards. “It’s weird being singled out for something that’s such a collaboration. I think that’s what I have a hard time with… It feels strange to see your name up there alone when you worked with, like, 60 other people to make it happen.”

He also admitted to having a crush on Golden Globes co-host Amy Poehler. “I think she’s really attractive… She’s having a party, I’m going to go, I’m a little nervous about seeing her, I don’t really know what to say.” Phoenix also told an amazing story about how his mom wound up dancing with Usher at Diddy’s post-Globes party last year. Fun times. Check out the videos below, and tell us what you think!
