Joseph Gordon-Levitt Chats About 'Hesher'

Joseph Gordon-Levitt goes shirtless while talking about his new movie Hesher, in theaters May 13!

Here is what the 30-year-old actor had to share:

On his character Hesher: “He’s detached himself from the baggage that we all carry around, and he doesn’t concern himself with material concerns like a house or clothes. He doesn’t worry about the future, he doesn’t worry about consequences. He just lives in the present tense, and I think we all could do with a little bit about that.”

On being in his underwear for the film: “The irony is that I got in real good shape for shooting Inception, and I shot Inception right after Hesher. So right after I did a whole movie in my underwear, that’s when I finally got in shape, and then I was wearing suits the whole time.”

On his Inception and The Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan: “He doesn’t pay attention to the committees and the market research and all these other things that can make movies stale … if he wanted to do his movies in a more standard way, he’d probably have a lot less fights, but the movies would be a lot more boring. Because he stands up for his own individual vision and executes it as he sees it, not as the numbers dictate, I think that’s at the heart of what makes his movies so special.”
