Phoenix Drug Use Was Talked About

.c The Associated Press


NEW YORK (AP) - Director Peter Bogdanovich recalls that there was much talk
of River Phoenix's suspected drug use on the set of ``The Thing Called
Love,'' the last film Phoenix completed before dying of an overdose outside
Hollywood's Viper Room on Halloween 1993.

Bogdanovich writes in the January issue of Premiere magazine that the
23-year-old Phoenix had boundless talent, but a propensity for delving into -
and almost becoming - the characters he played.

The director approached Phoenix during filming when talk of the actor's
possible drug use began: ``He himself didn't have `a problem with drugs,'
River told me lightly - he was just getting into the character.''

Phoenix played a country singer trying to make it in Nashville in the 1993
film, which co-starred Samantha Mathis, Dermot Mulroney and Sandra Bullock.

``The irony was that the more brilliantly convincing River was in playing a
self-involved, occasionally self-destructive, arrogant, drug-savvy, talented
singer-songwriter, the more people believed that was River,'' Bogdanovich
writes.
