Something happened in the past couple years.
While many of us have understood the perfection of the man featured above since his days of pre-adolescent hilarity on 3rd Rock From The Sun, the majority of folks only realized recently that Joseph Gordon Levitt is an actor to be reckoned with whatsoever, let alone the most wondrous beauteous fellow in existence. Which he obviously is. From all that knowing him I've clearly experienced (Sidenote: I haven't), I know this to be true (Sidenote: I don't). He seems to be so totally sweet, funny, nice, talented, adorable and ATTAINABLE, for some god-forsaken season, so all of us have adopted him as our new #1 celebrity crush.
Over the course of the past few weeks (beginning w/ the opening of Inception), I keep noticing on Twitter, on Facebook, in life, more and more people naming JGL as their new love. I ask "who is your big celebrity crush?" and the answer is most often "Joseph Gordon Levitt", not to mention HE IS #1 ON IMDB'S STARMETER, a place which is reserved for people like Leo, RPatz & Marvel superheroes. Though Tom Hardy is #3, so granted, a bunch of this is all because of Inception, BUT STILL, OKAY?!
And the love is deep. The love is hard. The love is causing Facebook wars. Yes, that's right, 10-20 comment long status updates about who gets to marry JGL, that then cross over into Twitter and get even MORE people riled up about who is first in line. We all start arguing about who gets seniority, who gets to call the shots - "I've loved him since 500 Days!" "Since Brick!" Since Mysterious Skin!" "Since 10 Things I Hate About You!" "Since 3rd Rock From The Sun!" "Since Angels in the Outfield!" "Since he played Student #1 in Beethoven!" (<----- No one says that) And so on and so forth. It makes me wonder if when Leo started to hit it big - were there folks proclaiming, "I've been in it since Growing Pains, bitches!!"
But Leo never seemed reachable, he never seemed plausible as a real life love. But a think a little part of all of us seem to think we DO have a chance with JGL. He is single, he is young, he is open to meeting fellow artists & humans, he seems humble, he seems normal, if not slightly on the artsy side, he seems like someone you would sit down at a bar with and talk to until the sun came up. And despite being the #1 celebrity on IMDB and the name everyone throws out when discussing current celebrity crushes, something about him feels specifically our own, like, he is MY crush, not yours, not anyone else's. He has that personal connection to his audience that very few actors have. He seems like a find to everyone and anyone who watches him work. This is a rare and valuable quality.
I think I have to stop now, because there is only so much anyone can handle of a fangirl writing an entire article about a cute boy, but sometimes, it must be done, if only to capture a moment in time.
Tonight a friend told me she had a dream last night in which she and JGL were dating. My other friend and I responded to her "AUGH IM SO JEALOUS!" Because, as we all know now, what is a dream is real, what is real is a dream, it's all feels the same while it's happening, so experiencing dating JGL in a dream may be as real as it gets, so let's get on that, subconscious!
And now. JGL picspampron
Oh, and this is JGL opening for the band Old Springs Pike, a band that features someone I know, that I've seen before...what are the odds...just stumbled across this....wtf
Him being a badass
Sidenote: I loved GI Joe, which I think means I automatically win the war, right?
