Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the (male) feminist hero we need

We all know what a great human Joseph Gordon-Levitt is.

From his early days on 3rd Rock from the Sun (yeah, you 90’s kids know what I’m talking about) and as Heath Ledger’s protégé in 10 Things I Hate About You, we have seen his (child) star rise gradually. He reappeared on our screens with the indie rom-com (500) Days of Summer back in 2009 (alongside BFF Zooey Deschanel) and since then has been a regular on the A-List circuit.

But what you might not know is that JGL has a passion besides acting; he’s a seriously talented film maker. In 2013, he debuted his first feature film, Don Jon, which he wrote the screenplay for and directed. In his spare time, he casually founded his own online production company hitREcord back in 2004 that now has it’s own YouTube channel (where JGL regularly vlogs) and last year launched a TV series– dude can do no wrong.

Oh, and those JGL vlogs I just mentioned? Yeah, he did one on feminism and it was #flawless.

“To me [feminism] doesn’t have to define who you actually are. You can be whoever you want to be, whatever you want to be, regardless of your gender.”
