Joseph Gordon Levitt began life as a child star in sitcom Third Rock From the Sun. After quitting acting to study, he reinvented himself as an iconic example of the modern filmmaker: frenetically prolific, as adept in front of the camera as they are in the edit suite, and possessed by an inquiring, persistent intelligence.
In a short interview, he discusses his directorial debut Don Jon, traditional versus progressive methods of feature filmmaking, finding his voice as an auteur, and getting used to the sight of his own face.
