River Phoenix photographed at his home by Bruce Weber

“River Phoenix isn’t crop-headed, of course. And he doesn’t wear bermudas. He arrived at my hotel in his mother’s car wearing a jade green Gap sweatshirt, navy blue long johns, and tennis shoes. He’s grown since we last saw him (in Running of Empty - what a tearjerker). He’s now 5’11 (barefoot) and slim as a willow, and hung with wisps of beard like Florida’s Spanish moss. He wouldn’t shave them off, even for Bruce Weber’s pictures.”

Vogue, May 1990

SEVEN DAYS OF RIVER PHOENIX

Happy Birthday, River Jude Phoenix! (August 23, 1970 – October 31, 1993)
In my utopian world, I would live on a deserted island, far from any sign of industry and pollution. Beside a mountain where there it snowed, so I could make a maneuver and skiing down it. Underneath there would be a lake where I could swim and meet the friends. Everything would be better if I could fly like Peter Pan!


”For those that knew him, you know that he was about as special a person that there ever was. I feel very lucky for the years of friendship that we had. The diners we loitered in, the movies we went to go see and the music we played together. All the things I learned about life, love and art from you. You filled me with blind confidence…telling me that I was a great actor (before I became an actor) and a great musician. You were a gift. The influence you had on me still lives…from the way I eat to the way I express myself. Today, I’m playing XTC songs and thinking about you. I miss you and wish you were here. Be free, my friend. Love-Zaza.”

Chris did get out. He enrolled in the college courses with me, and although it was hard, he gutted it out like he always did. He went on to college and eventually became a lawyer.
