Fashion Flashback: River Phoenix
River Phoenix was one of the most interesting and rad actor babes of our times. He tragically overdosed at the Johnny Depp’s Bar, The Viper Room at the young age of 23. That sucked a lot for culture, because he was a thoughtful actor, enviromental activist and total hottie. He stared in both Indie films like Running On Empty, My Own Private Idaho and Dogfight as well as blockbusters including Mosquito Coast of course, Stand By Me. Men today could take a few tips from his unaffected, casual ’90′s style, and his humble ego, once quoted as saying “I’ve kept my ego and my happiness completely separate from my work. in fact, if I see my face on the cover of a magazine I go into remission. I shut myself out and freak.” Sadly he couldn’t handle the fame the surronded him. See photos of River after the jump.
