Joseph Gordon-Levitt has come a long way since his days as a child star on “3rd Rock From the Sun,” “10 Things I Hate About You” and “Angels in the Outfield.”
And the 29-year-old “500 Days of Summer” star isn’t done pushing the envelope. Gordon-Levitt will appear alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page in Christopher Nolan’s “Inception,” due out July 16.
“When you work on big movies, everybody gets jaded, myself included, and you have to remind yourself: If we were 10 years old, this would be pretty damn exciting. Joe never seems to forget that,” Nolan told Details.
But Gordon-Levitt’s success doesn’t end with the big screen. The actor and self proclaimed pothead started hitRECord.org about five years ago. The site, which has more than 7,000 participants, is a place where aspiring filmmakers, artists and songwriters can collaborate with one another.
“The most valiant thing you can do as an artist is inspire someone else to be creative,” he said.
Check out Gordon-Levitt on the cover of Details, to hit newsstands July 13.
