They had to be the cutest couple of the evening. Those “marriage in trouble” rumors have been put to rest. I don’t think that you could have faked the affection and admiration that Ryan was showing when Reese won her award. It was really a nice thing to see. Ryan was also quite pleased when Joaquin Phoenix won his award, because he became $220 richer because of it.
Joaquin Phoenix had to pay up $220 to pal Ryan Phillippe after claiming the best actor prize at the Golden Globes last night, because he lost a bet with the Crash star.
Phoenix was stunned when he claimed the award for his portrayal of country icon Johnny Cash in biopic Walk The Line, and won and lost at the same time after Phillippe reminded him of a bet they had.
Phillippe, who is married to Phoenix’s Walk The Line co-star Reese Witherspoon insisted Phoenix would take home the big prize. The actor says, “He (Phillippe) bet me that I would win and I said, ‘No way.’ I bet him whatever I had in my pocket, which was $220.”
