For the record, the upcoming movie “Premium Rush” — about what appears to be parody of a bike messenger — looks kind of terrible. But it stars My Fantasy Dream Boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt, so I’ll have to watch it on DVD eventually. But here’s a breakdown of his hipster tendencies in the movie (and hey, probably in real life) anyway. [NYMag.com]
There are two camps in The Frisky office — the Goslingites [Ahem, see the reasons to love him, below. -- Editor] and the JGL-ers. I happen to fall squarely in the latter camp — and so I’m thrilled that today is Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s 31st birthday. Never change, JGL! In honor of his birthing day, I’ve assembled a list of 31 reasons we love JGL. Get on board, why don’t you?
You guys know I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt, right? Like, love-love. However, I must say, this latest spate of cute videos of JGL singing might just have pushed me over the edge from love to hate. Like, stop being so great, guy. It’s too much. I can’t keep up. If my fantasy that we will one day end up together is going to come true, he’s going to have to get just a little bit more mediocre. Here, JGL does his rendition of “Hey Jude” at a Hit RECord event at the Sundance Film Festival. Ugh. [YouTube]
Last week, we posted a video of Zooey Deschanel & Joseph Gordon Levitt singing a New Year’s Eve song. Zooey posted the video and explained her 12 year relationship with JGL..
“I have known Joe Gordon-Levitt for going on 12 years. We first met in the summer of 2000 while doing a tiny movie called Manic, where we bonded over a mutual appreciation for Harry Nilsson and Nina Simone and I have been lucky enough to call him one of my dearest friends ever since.”
theBERRY is in agreement with me that — if JGL isn’t going to date our lovely Julie — Zooey and JGL should just date already. Click on over to see 25 photos of the twosome looking stupidly adorable together. Read more…
Well isn’t this adorkable? Oh crap, I just remembered we hate that word. Fine. Let me start over. Isn’t this lovely? Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, back together again, this time covering Nancy Wilson’s “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” Julie would absolutely hate me for saying this, but luckily she is on a plane to Mexico right now, so here it goes: I really kind of wish Zooey and JGL would give romance a shot in real life. I like them together. By the way, if any of you send this post to Julie, I’ll know.
So this reminds me — what the heck are you doing for New Year’s Eve, Frisky readers? So far, I have no plans. I am either going to Rhode Island to hang out with someone very tall, chilling out on my couch with someone very furry, or doing something in between, like drinking champagne straight from the bottle on a street corner in Brooklyn. What are YOUR New Year’s Eve plans?
As you know, we’re not really fans of anybody asking out our Most Wonderful Fake Boyfriend of All Time Joseph Gordon-Levitt. However, if someone’s going to do it, well, I suppose 26-year-old Lindsey Miller might as well. Lindsey’s been battling cancer for the past year, and after seeing JGL’s latest film “50/50″ — where he plays a young dude with cancer–she was inspired to get in touch. “After seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s performance and seeing/reading some of his subsequent interviews about the film I thought, ‘This guy gets it. And he’s cute. I wonder if I could ever run into him somewhere,’” she writes on her blog. “But even though I live in LA, it seems impossible to find him.” (That’s because he’s apparently been living in my neighborhood in Brooklyn lately). So, Joe, the ball’s in your court now… [I Am a Liver]
