Joseph Gordon-Levitt covers OUT magazine, and still won’t refute rumors that he is gay by clarifying them:
“That would be really tacky—they would win if I had to clarify.”
“It comes from a really young age,” he concedes. “It can be really awkward and difficult to be thought of as this thing on TV. Before understanding it or being able to analyze it, I just knew it made me really anxious.” Regularly recognized in his teens as “that kid from 3rd Rock From the Sun,” his reflexive response was denial. “I wouldn’t just say ‘No,’ ” he recalls. “I was way more convincing than that. I would first act confused, and then I would try to understand what they were saying. I would play the part.”
Love, love, love him!
