Another Reason to Love Joseph Gordon-Levitt


by Jeanne Sutton
15th Aug 2014

Are Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emma Watson starring opposite each other in an upcoming rom-com? Because they totally should.

Big Joseph Gordon-Levitt fangirls over here. The man can work a slim suit like no other and that boyish smile makes double barrels decent. The (500) Days of Summer star may have set a new benchmark for the universally adored male with his comments on feminism. In an interview with The Daily Beast he commented on stars who spurn the label of feminist (like The Fault in our Stars? Shailene Woodley). Gordon-Levitt replied with the type of quote we’re making our desktop background.

?Coming out?against the label? Wow. I guess I’m not aware of that. What that means to me is that you don’t let your gender define who you are?you can be who you want to be, whether you’re a man, a woman, a boy, a girl, whatever. However you want to define yourself, you can do that and should be able to do that, and no category ever really describes a person because every person is unique. That, to me, is what ?feminism? means. So yes, I’d absolutely call myself a feminist. And if you look at history, women are an oppressed category of people. There’s a long, long history of women suffering abuse, injustice, and not having the same opportunities as men, and I think that’s been very detrimental to the human race as a whole. I’m a believer that if everyone has a fair chance to be what they want to be and do what they want to do, it’s better for everyone. It benefits society as a whole.?

We knew there was a reason we had a crush on Joseph ever since 10 Things I Hate About You. Today’s most fanciable man can be seen on screens soon in the Sin City sequel, A Dame to Kill For.
