London, Feb 11 (ANI): Puerto Rican film actor Joaquin Phoenix has showed that he is very serious about pursuing a career as a rapper after he had a high-tech recording studio installed in his house.
Phoenix had stunned most of his fans when he announced last year that he planned to step away from acting and instead try for a singing career.
It seems that he is very serious about making a name for himself in the music industry, as director James Gray has revealed that Phoenix is doing everything possible to ensure his success.
"If he's not serious about it, then he really went to ridiculous lengths," the Daily Express quoted Gray as saying.
Phoenix admits he has no desire to return to the big screen anytime soon - because he wants to focus on his new musical direction.
"I'm not one of those people, like, when I break up with my girlfriend, I don't ever see her again," he said.
"I see her as friends, but do I ever think about getting back together? No, when I do something, I do it. So I have no intention (to return to acting)," he added. (ANI)
