Did Joaquin Phoenix Ditch the Oscars For a Sugar Baby Who’s Half His Age?

Sugar Daddy Joaquin Phoenix Ditch Oscars For Sugar BabyOne of the pre­sum­able perks of dat­ing an A-list actor is get­ting to go to fancy award shows and min­gle with other A-list actors. But that’s not really the case if you’re dat­ing Joaquin Phoenix.

Hollywood’s biggest names gath­ered for the 86th Acad­emy Awards on March 2, but the 39-year-old actor was nowhere to be seen, even though his movie Her was nom­i­nated for best pic­ture and took home the Oscar for best orig­i­nal screenplay.

While other celebri­ties were prep­ping for the big night, Joaquin Phoenix seemed to have his hands full with other plans; he was spot­ted leav­ing a mar­tial arts class with his much younger sugar baby, 20-year-old DJ Allie Teilz. Dressed in over­sized sweats, the celebrity cou­ple looked quite con­tent about skip­ping the biggest night in Hollywood.

But we can’t help but won­der if his new sugar baby had any­thing to do with him not show­ing up to the Oscars—would he have gone if she wasn’t in the pic­ture? Besides, she doesn’t exactly scream Hol­ly­wood roy­alty, but to each their own.

Mean­while, other celebrity sugar dad­dies used the oppor­tu­nity to show off their beau­ti­ful younger women. Bradley Cooper and his model sugar baby, Suki Water­house, were spot­ted at the star-studded Van­ity Fair Oscar Party, along with Leonardo DiCaprio and his younger girl­friend, Toni Garrn.

What do you think: Will Joaquin Phoenix’s new sugar baby hurt his career as an A-list actor?
