Joseph Gordon-Levitt Found Similarities Between Acting & Tightrope Walking

Joseph Gordon-Levitt steps out in a striped suit for the premiere of his movie The Walk on Tuesday (October 6) in Paris, France.

The 34-year-old actor was joined by his co-star Clement Sibony and director Robert Zemeckis at the event, among some others!

“I found there is quite a bit of overlap between the mental game of walking on the wire and acting. When you are walking on a wire you can’t be thinking ‘Whoa, it’s really quite high, I might fall.’ You have to just fix your eyes on where the wire ends and clear your mind of everything else,” Joseph told Reuters about the similarities between high wire walking and acting. “There is a similarity with acting. When you are shooting a scene and the cameras are rolling, you can’t be thinking of what people will think of the movie. You have to clear your mind of all that stuff and just be present.”

FYI: Joseph is wearing a Balenciaga suit, tie, and shirt with Christian Louboutin shoes.
