Joseph Gordon-Levitt Covers GQ Magazine
From Roseanne, to 3rd Rock from the Sun to the cover of GQ magazine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has really come into his own.
The Inception actor dishes on why he skipped his prom, what he thinks of people pandering after celebs and why he thinks the entertainment industry is headed to the dumps.
On not going to the high school prom:
“I thought the girls my age were very frustrating. They were, like, looking in their compact mirrors and shit, and I thought that was evil.”
On how Hollywood is declining:
“The entertainment business as it has been is not going to be around that much longer. The way it’s going is, there’s going to be artists, and they’ll make their shit, and they’ll connect to their audience, and you don’t need any of the middlemen—the studios or the agents.”
On how he hates Americans’ drooling over celebrities:
“I really don’t like this notion that some people are more important than other people. These stories about these elevated people called ‘celebrities’ teaches you”—and by “you” he meant regular, non-famous folks—”that what you have to say doesn’t matter. It’s degrading.”
