Joaquin Phoenix and Gaby Hoffmann reunite at the NYFF screening of their film C’mon C’mon

Former child stars Joaquin Phoenix and Gaby Hoffmann posed together at the 59th New York Film Festival screening of their film C’mon C’mon on Monday.

The Puerto Rican-born actor – turning 47 this month – was still growing back his hair after shaving the top bald for his role in Ari Aster’s Disappointment Blvd.

Joaquin – a lifelong outspoken vegan – sported a black Animal Liberation Front hoodie, matching jeans, and Converse low-tops.

The 39-year-old actress showcased her eccentric sense of style in a long-sleeve, pattern-clashing maxi-dress and kitten-heeled pumps.

Gaby – last seen in Amazon’s Transparent – is probably still best known for her early roles in Sleepless in Seattle, Field of Dreams, and Uncle Buck.

Both Hoffmann and Phoenix were raised in bohemian families featuring other actors like her Warhol superstar mother Viva and his late big brother River.

The Oscar winner plays radio journalist Johnny who takes his eight-year-old nephew Jesse (Woody Norman) on a road trip in the critically-acclaimed black-and-white drama.
