Joaquin Phoenix's dog is allergic to sunlight.

The 'Joker' star has two canine companions, Oskar and Soda, and he has to keep the latter - a white pit bull mix he rescued from being euthanised 13 years ago - inside during the day, though he has bought her a specially-made suit so he can take his pets to the beach.

However, he admitted: "She looks so f***ing cool but she doesn't like it."

The 44-year-old actor has been vegan since childhood and admitted he "doesn't really like" junk food, but still indulges occasionally.

He told the new issue of America's Vanity Fair magazine: "I eat really healthy.

"I don't really like junk food. I don't like processed foods. Right? But I still can - like, I'll f**k up a bag of chips. Like a f***in' Subway sandwich and s**t."

Joaquin began acting when he was a child and will never forget the "buzz" he felt when 'cut' was called during one of his first roles, a part in TV show 'Hill Street Blues' in 1984.

He said: "After they said 'cut,' I remember the other people and the other actors, I could feel that they went, 'Oof.'

"There was this moment and I felt it too, like my body was f***ing buzzing. I'll never forget this feeling. It's like the first time you drink or smoke a joint or something. You're like, holy f**k, my whole body is aware of it in a way that I've never been aware. It felt incredible.

"It was an incredible feeling, and I think the organism went, 'Oh, well, huh, we're tapping something.' "

However, the 'Walk the Line' star admitted he'd have doubts if he heard that childhood tale from anyone else.

He added: "Does that seem believable? Really? Because if somebody told me that, I'd be like, 'You're seven years old. You really had a knowing of what the f**k you were?'(sic)"
