Joseph Gordon-Levitt Answers 20 Questions for 'Playboy'

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Answers 20 Questions for 'Playboy'

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is dashing in a red suit for Playboy‘s 20 Questions feature in the mag’s September 2012 issue, on newsstands August 17.

Here is what the 31-year-old Looper actor had to share with the mag:

On what he looks for in a woman: “Making checklists of things you’re looking for in a person is the numero uno thing you can do to guarantee you’ll be alone forever. 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. Beyond that there’s not much more I would specify, because you never f**king know, man.”

On why his Dark Knight Rises co-star Christian Bale has called him an “intriguing guy”: “We had a f**king great time every day working on that movie. I felt as though I’d transferred in for senior year and had a graduation celebration. You felt a huge sense of accomplishment and closure. Everyone on that movie did such good, dignified work. No one came to phone it in or just cash a check.”

On people wanting him to get together with 500 Days of Summer co-star Zooey Deschanel: “It’s awkward when people say that. Whatever. Zooey and I just think it’s funny. It is funny. We’ve been friends for 10 years. She loves movies, music and art, and she’s incredibly knowledgeable about that stuff. She’s turned me on to so many good movies and so much good music. It’s fun just to have conversations, watch movies with her and stuff like that.”

    “I love when someone approaches me and tells me they’ve seen me in something that made them feel something and that they connected to it. That’s part of why I do it. The other interaction is with people who really don’t care about the movies or anything like that. They just sort of buy into the fame thing, and that feels icky to me.” ..well said,Joseph

    “The Occupy movement is a pop culture happening that’s saying money is not what’s cool. What’s cool is doing something worthwhile. If your goal is to make money in the movie industry, you make crappy movies, not good ones.” ..his words are so true! read the interview!

    it’s nice that he likes to hang out watch movies and listen to cds with Zooey Deschanel, and I get that they think it’s awkward how people want them to get together… but that doesn’t stop me from wishing they would just make beautiful, smart, witty, hipster babies with awesome style and music taste.
