“I really don’t like this notion that some people are more important than other people,” says the one-time “Third Rock from the Sun” actor. “These stories about these elevated people called ‘celebrities’ teaches you that what you [average people] have to say doesn’t matter. It’s degrading.”
The actor, who plays Commissioner Gordon’s young protege in the final Christopher Nolan “Batman” installment, also says he’s mellowed with age.
“[I was] a sort of serious little dude — snobby,” he says. At risk of becoming a “hopeless ivory-tower douchebag.”
According to the new article, that’s all changed and Gordon-Levitt is having more fun as an adult.
“He was a very mature boy,” says “Third Rock” co-star John Lithgow. “I remember him carrying on about the ecological damage that is done when people build new golf courses. What teenager worries about that? And now he’s a very youthful adult. He’s done a flip-flop.”
