this explains it

on january 26, 2006, phoenix was in a car accident in hollywood on a winding canyon road that flipped his car over. the crash reportedly was caused by brake failure. phoenix:

i remember this knocking on the passenger window. there was this german voice saying:

"just relax."

there's the airbag, i can't see and i'm saying:

"i'm fine. i am relaxed."

finally, i rolled down the window and this head pops inside. and he said:

"no. you're not."

and suddenly i said to myself, 'that's werner herzog.' there's something so calming and beautiful about werner herzog's voice. i felt completely fine and safe. i climbed out. i got out of the car and i said:

"thank you."

and he was gone.

***

as for his last successful movie, the actor revealed he doesn't like watching himself and also stated that the end of filming "johnny cash" movie threw him in a big depression:

"i hate watching myself. i went through confusion and depression. after a film like this, i lose those things that help define me and make me comfortable. i go through this thing of, 'what am i? what do i do?'
