Did any of you used to watch Joseph Gordon Levitt on the 90’s show, Third Rock From the Sun? He played a long-haired alien boy, and even way back then when he was just a little kid, you could tell he had that certain something. That dangerous mix of spark and charisma, dry wit and self deprecation, that just made him a likable person. Working to further that likability (and plug his new movie Don Jon) Joseph Gordon Levitt took to Reddit and did an Ask Me Anything recently, with hilarious results. Who knew he was so funny? Anyone who watched Third Rock did.
For those who don’t know, Ask Me Anything on Reddit is when a star or celebrity sits down and answers questions submitted, in real time, to an account they may have (or have made for that occasion) on Reddit. It is usually an opportunity for a star to get in touch, on ground level, with some of their fans and address their questions directly. And while some stars have been laughed off of Reddit for fake AMA’s (Woody Harrelson), it seems Joseph Gordon Levitt knew just what to do, just what to say, and how to react, because he comes off as charming, quick witted, and surprisingly funny. And believe you me, the Reddit crowd are a tough crowd to win over.
Even though you may not necessarily learn anything about the actor you didn’t already know, JGL’s AMA just worked to further establish him as a star to keep an eye on, and a warm and funny guy. Check out his new movie he wrote, stars in, and directed called Don Jon, opening in select theaters this weekend.
