The oldest of the five siblings, River Phoenix -- the actor of 1986's Stand By Me and 1991's My Own Private Idaho -- died when he was 23 due to a drug overdose.     

Perhaps the most famous of the siblings is Joaquin Phoenix, a screen actor of such movies like 2000's Gladiator, 2013's Her, and his Oscar-winning magnum opus in 2019's Joker

Liberty Phoenix: Career and Net Worth

Liberty Phoenix is estimated to have a net worth of around $1 million. Like her siblings, Liberty inherited artistic genes and is a former actress, singer, and musician. 

Liberty had a brief screen career with appearances in an episode of the '80s television drama series Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and the 1986 made-for-TV drama, Kate's Secret.

She also briefly performed with her two sisters on the punk band, The Causey Way -- which has since disbanded. She supported her older sister Rain's band, Papercranes, as a backup vocalist.
