In 1994, Ben Harper released his debut album, Welcome To The Cruel World. In 1995, Joaquin Phoenix made his first movie, To Die For. Both were born on October 28. Can you guess who’s older? Answer after the jump.
Ok, Harper’s first album was really 1992’s Pleasure And Pain, a collaboration with Tom Freund that only had one 1,500-copy pressing. And Phoenix made plenty of movies before To Die For—he just did them under the stage name Leaf Phoenix. But both would be happy if you kept your interest in their career focused from 1994 on. Agewise, Harper has five years on the Academy Award-nominated actor.
