We’re Saved! Actor Joaquin Phoenix Plans To Wear The Same Tuxedo To Every Award Function to Combat ‘Global Warming’
Written By Hrishikesh Gawade
The 77th Golden Globe Awards function took place on January 5, 2020. This year’s function observed a vegan diet, and no single-use plastic products were used. This step was taken in efforts to save the planet from global warming, and several artists raised their voices and spoke about the issue. Livelong vegan Joaquin Phoenix was one of those actors who made efforts to change the toxic ways of the old and urged fellow actors and audience to make some little efforts to save the planet. He also stated that he will be wearing the same suit, for every award function this year.
On Sunday, the Joker actor was seen at the 77th Golden Globe Awards, and he was seen sporting a classic custom-made tuxedo by Stella McCartney, a British designer and a leading voice in sustainable fashion, since launching her brand in 2001. Phoenix, who won the Best Actor award for his performance in the DC film Joker, choose his fashion statement to resonate his efforts relating to climate change. The next day, McCartney revealed that the actor plans on wearing the same suit to every award function this season.
During the award function, Phoenix was seen speaking about the issue of climate change, veganism, and the Australian wildfires. He also thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for serving vegan meals during the function. He also said that we have to take the responsibility to make the change and sacrifices in our own lives, and he said that he hopes we can do this.
This year’s Golden Globe Awards function was seen making efforts to save the planet, and the meals they served included vegan food and things that were locally available. Joaquin has been associated with Veganism and its link to climate change, and last year he was seen urging his fans to turn to a vegan diet and take up the new year’s resolution of ‘Veganuary,’ where he asked everyone to go vegan for the first month of the year. Fans of the actor are supporting the actor, and are planning to reduce their carbon footprint.
Designer Stella McCartney announced on Instagram and Twitter that the 45-year-old Joker star — who snagged a Golden Globe on Sunday, securing his spot as a front-runner in the best actor category this year — would be wearing the same classic black tuxedo for all of award season to “reduce waste.”
“This man is a winner… wearing custom Stella because he chooses to make choices for the future of the planet and all of its creatures,” the celeb-favorite designer, 48, wrote alongside a series of photos of Phoenix. “He has also chosen to wear this same Tux for the entire award season to reduce waste.
But a few were quick to point out celebrity wealth and privilege — “Wow just one tux for a whole month what a hero,” one Instagram user commented — and former Fox News contributor Megyn Kelly agreed, slamming the three-time Oscar nominee on Twitter.
“Well said @JaniceDean. How out of touch are these ppl?? Oh the sacrifice! Just ONE tuxedo! Spare us,” she wrote, to which journalist Emily Zanotti replied: “I’m going to rewear my Stella McCartney jeans (that I got secondhand for $35) today, just to feel like a climate change hero.”
Phoenix was also named PETA’s 2019 Person of the Year for his “lifelong dedication to ending speciesism,” which is defined as the assumption of human superiority leading to the exploitation of animals.
