Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Body is a Wonderland
Joseph Gordon-Levitt gave some very interesting answers in his latest interview with UK’s bimonthly magazine, Wonderland.
Do you Google yourself? Yes. It was a triumphant day for me about a year ago when my website hitrecord.org came up ﬁrst on the Google page under my name. I make short ﬁlms and put them on there. Now I think it’s number four.
So although you’re playing Cobra Commander in the G.I. Joe movie for Paramount, you were never allowed to play with G.I. Joe dolls as a kid? That’s right. No toys that had guns. But I got to know a lot of soldiers through Stop-Loss and I learnt what it means to be one. No matter what you feel about America’s occupation of Iraq, it’s important to distinguish that, in a way, what those soldiers do is the bravest thing a human being can do: they put their lives on the line for each other. I’ve never risked my life for anything.
What is your drug of choice? I guess marijuana. I’ve had a select set of really beautiful, powerful, psychedelic experiences on certain drugs but I never got into just doing it at a party: ‘Oh let’s get f—ed up and drop acid’. That’s so retarded and disrespectful to your body and the drug itself. Mushrooms, acid and ecstasy can offer you a new perspective. They can also offer you nothing.
