She comes from a family of actors and actresses. Her brother Joaquin Phoenix was in Gladiator and Walk the Line among other films. Speaking of Joaquin, he has just quit acting to go into singing. He got good reviews for his part in the Johnny Cash film.

Two of Summer’s siblings have names that remind of us of the planet we live on. River, who sadly died of a speedball – cocaine and heroin – overdose, and Rain. Rain is also an actress.

GP is certainly not opposed to actors and actresses doing their thing. We like movies as much as the next person. We do, however, like it better when actresses like Summer get in on making the world a better place for our animal friends and make the planet a better place by just plain caring.
