'Dark Knight' Rising Star Gordon-Levitt Feels "Really Terrible" about Wallace GQ Profile

Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn't happy about his August profile piece in GQ. The in-depth article mentions the actor's late brother, Dan, who was found unresponsive in a Hollywood home in 2010.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt should be smiling all the way to the bank. Reasons to be happy include Chris Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" (July 20), which is accumulating excellent reviews (as well as spoilers) and could rival Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" at the summer box office. Sony will release his bike messenger thriller "Premium Rush" this August.  Rian Johnson's "Looper," which recently wowed Comic-Con, starring Gordon-Levitt as a young Bruce Willis, looks like a strong sci-fi action entry to complement the fall's usual Oscar bait. He's got a part in Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln." His thriving online site HitRECord has spawned a record label. He's directing his first film, which he also wrote and stars in.

Gordon-Levitt is even on the cover of the August GQ, but isn't happy about it. The in-depth profile mentions the actor's late brother, Dan, who was found unresponsive in Hollywood in 2010.

Amy Wallace's GQ piece describes Dan Gordon-Levitt's death as "an alleged drug overdose," and that all the "Dark Knight Rises" actor would say about the loss is that "it was an accident." Gordon-Levitt expressed his disappointment with the article on his Tumblr blog in a post titled "Burning Dan in GQ," and wrote that Wallace's piece made him feel "really terrible," and that "the 'allegations' to which she must be referring were made by a handful of gossip sites."
