Gordon-Levitt reacts to fashion magazine GQ’s profile article of himself that mentioned his late brother, Dan. The author wrote that Dan had died of an alleged drug overdose, which the actor corrected in his Tumblr blog. The actor and his family have not given an official statement on his brother’s real cause of death.
Using the word “alleged” technically allows the writer to say whatever she wants. The “allegations” to which she must be referring were made by a handful of gossip websites. They are factually incorrect according to the coroner’s office and the police department. I don’t like publicly speaking about my brother’s death, but I’m making an exception to correct this irresponsible claim.
Gordon-Levitt appears on the cover of the August 2012 issue of popular men’s magazine, GQ. The actor models a variety of three-piece suits from such brands as Dolce & Gabbana, Hugo Boss, and Ermenegildo Zegna. In the interview, he shares details about his teenage years in showbiz, the devolution of the entertainment business, and his notion of fame.
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 that what you have to say doesn’t matter. It’s degrading.
Gordon-Levitt reveals having a girlfriend during an interview on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show. The actor also mentions that they met through mutual friends and that she is not from the showbiz industry. The interview covers other topics including his movie, Don Jon, and his views on relationships and marriage.
I have a girlfriend, but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public. She is not in show business.

So in our first episode there’s 426 people whose work is all featured in that. In that first short film there were around 1,400 contributions that we whittled down to I forget the exact number, 60-something, and that’s people who did the voiceover, people who played all the different instruments on the score, people who did the animation behind the actress and who contributed the individual illustrations that went into the animation, all coming from different people.
Gordon-Levitt returns as a guest on Conan and talks about the “Best Performance with a Fake Nose” award he received from a website. He also tries out a bunch of fake noses with O’Brien and watches an old clip of his appearance in Jeopardy.
Again, trying to play a young Bruce Willis and look at yourself in the mirror doing lines, don’t know if I’m selling this. I don’t know if anyone will buy the “you grow up to be Bruce Willis”. Then once I put on that face and put in the contact lenses. It was a nose and lips, eyebrows, ears. All subtle but a lot of stuff and then I’m like “OK, yeah, this isn’t me anymore”.
