Julie is in Morocco this week, which means I’m covering the Aaron Paul, cute animal, London Fashion Week and Joseph Gordon-Levitt beats in her absence. So. Difficult. Speaking of JGL, here he is looking ridiculously hot in Flaunt magazine. I still don’t think he’s the “new Ryan Gosling,” as Glamour suggested, but I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eating crackers, that’s for sure.
Well okay, so he’s not exactly posing-posing for Playboy, but JGL is in this month’s issue, talking about coming from a showbiz family, and what he wants from a girl. (Answer: “You can’t meet someone and think, Do they have everything I want in a person? You just have to pay attention, keep your eyes open, listen to people and be present. I guess what I look for in a girl is someone who’s doing that too.”) Keep reading »
Okay, JGL, we forgive you for “misspeaking” and saying that pretty girls are rarely funny. Now come over here and give me a kiss. [Yahoo]
“She’s funny … and let’s face it, most pretty girls aren’t funny.”
–Joseph Gordon-Levitt, about his “Looper” co-star Emily Blunt. Blunt allegedly “bristled” at the comment, but JGL was apparently unmoved. You know what’s “not funny” JGL? Making blanket statements correlating one’s perceived attractiveness with their sense of humor. We’re so over. [Digital Spy]
Ugh, my Fantasy Dream Boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt is looking like a total tool these days. That’s because, I guess, he’s filming a new movie called “Don Jon’s Addiction.” In it, he plays a dude addicted to porn who falls in love with Scarlett Johannson so it makes sense that he’s overly tanned and bulked up, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino-style. As such, we’re probably going to skip it and watch “Brick” again.
As you know, Joseph Gordon-Levitt will always be My Ultimate Fantasy Famous Dude Boyfriend. But that doesn’t mean that I’m exactly stoked with some of his movie choices lately. First, there’s his forthcoming movie “Premium Rush,” in which he stars a bike messenger on the run — it looks totally crap. And now comes word that he’s going to be involved in a remake of the 1986 classic film “Little Shop of Horrors.” The original, starring Steve Martin and Rick Moranis, is kind of unbeatable, so the idea that JGL thinks he’s got the chops to produce and possibly star in a remake sounds a little arrogant to me. Do you think he can pull it off? [Chicago Tribune]
