Rapper Joaquin Phoenix (Actor Joaquin Phoenix)

In 2008, "Gladiator" star Joaquin Phoenix announced that he was going to stop acting and begin a career as a rap star. This was all part of an elaborate ruse for a mockumentary, "I'm Still Here." In the end, the joke was on Phoenix as the film grossed less than $600K.Getty Images
