Los Angeles: 'Inherent Vice' actor Joaquin Phoenix has admitted that he made up the engagement story. The 40-year-old actor, who had revealed that he got engaged to his yoga instructor, now said he just wants to spice up his 'boring' life story and make him more interesting to public, reported Ace Showbiz.

"I think my life's so boring and so it seemed like something exciting to talk about," he said.

"I want the audience to like me, and they really like people who are getting married. I can get engaged again, if you like," he jokingly added.

The actor also addressed his fake engagement story on 'Live! with Kelly and Michael', saying that the 'Late Show with David Letterman' host was aware it was a joke.

He jokingly added that he proposed to Reese Witherspoon, his co-star in 'Walk the Line' and 'Inherent Vice'.
