Joseph Gordon-Levitt Lashes Out at GQ Magazine
The ‘Dark Knight’ actor is upset with the magazine over incorrect information published about his deceased brother.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt covers this month’s issue of GQ, but after reading the printed article, he has called the magazine “irresponsible” and expresses that he feels terrible.
In a message posted on his website, Gordon-Levitt writes:
"I’m writing this because I have a problem with what their article says about my brother. I’ll be honest, it really made me feel terrible. Here’s a quote:
‘…the elder Gordon-Levitt died of an alleged drug overdose in 2010. “It was an accident” is all Joe will say about that.’"
"The 'allegations' to which [the writer] must be referring were made by a handful of gossip websites. They are factually incorrect according to the coroner’s office and the police department," he continues
I don’t like publicly speaking about my brother’s death, but I’m making an exception to correct this irresponsible claim."
"By the way, while I asked the writer not to dwell on how he died, I did say quite a bit about how he lived, and how much he means to me. Dan was a brightly positive, genuinely caring, and brilliantly inspiring person, and I liked the idea of such a wide readership learning about him. My parents and I are disappointed with what the article chose to focus on regarding this sensitive subject."
