Joaquin Phoenix has confessed to fibbing on talk shows, so let’s hope he isn’t lying about his mom’s dance moves.

The actor, 40, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday and revealed that his mother, Arlyn, showed off her wild side at last year’s Golden Globes.

Phoenix told Kimmel that he took his mom as his date to Diddy‘s 2014 Golden Globes afterparty, where she showed off her fancy footwork with a famous dance partner.

“My mom can boogie!” the Inherent Vice star explained. “She gets down.”

“I walked out for a minute and I came back in, and she was dancing with Usher.”

Phoenix said he is proud of his mom’s dance skills and is planning to bring Arlyn as his date to the Golden Globes again.

Arlyn may really have something to boogie about at this year’s award show. Her son is nominated for best actor in a musical or comedy for his performance in Inherent Vice.
