Joseph Gordon Levitt is "A Brilliant Disguise" in the September '09 issue of Nylon Guys. The GI Joe and (500) Days of Summer star sat down with Nylon's Stephanie Trong at Subway, enjoyed free refills of Dr. Pepper, and dished on a variety of topics. Here's a couple outtakes from the interview:
On his teen years after 3rd Rock from the Sun
"Everyone gets fucked with in high school. I was fucked with because I was on TV. And I think when you're not used to that, the world can be pretty harsh... I was probably a bit of a dick [back then]. I mean, not a dick but I had very simplistic and strong feelings about things, and right and wrong."
Is Joseph hitting the gym?
"I remember realizing, when I played my part in Mysterious Skin, how much overlap there was between a prostitute and an actor. I was putting a lot of thought into what it would be like to have sex for money. It's really similar in a lot of ways, because you kind of have to play a role and satisfy your audience. And absolutely have them be attracted to you."
