Joseph Gordon-Levitt for Flaunt Magazine

Posted on September 21, 2012

Look, we know you’ve been getting slammed in the face with a lot of JGL lately, but boys and girls? There’s not a chance in hell you’re going to complain about this one. Unless you have a dark soul or poor vision, that is.



Joseph Gordon-Levitt covers the October 2012 issue of Flaunt magazine photographed by Michael Muller and styled by Jenny Ricker.

      You can keep slamming in the face with this man, all day, every day. 

      • homofascist

        Amen sister.

        • Melvis Velour

          Someone hand me mah reticule, Ahm havin’ an attack o tha vapours!  Mah stars ‘n garters!

        • jjfg

           amen to that amen!

      •ía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

        Preach! Forever and ever.

      • marlie

        Ditto. JGL could be my daily does of pretty for the foreseeable future and you wouldn’t hear me complain one bit.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      Outstanding! I want these photos for my boards. I wonder where I can track down a copy of this in my town…

      I love the shapes created by his body and that chair in the shot with the camera (and his sticky out-y ears).

    • Melanie Suzanne

      Yes, please.

      Except for pic #3: he’s looking a little to Shia LeBeouf there.

      • Vivi N

        LOL! And that’s my favorite photo of the bunch.

      • Jen R

        Glad I’m not the only one who saw that.

    • rahrahbowbow

      Did anyone else see the one of him at the gas pump and instantly think “well, that hose is awkwardly posititioned…”

      • Annie Leung

         That’s exactly what I thought too! I had to catch myself from laughing like a school girl.

      • Dixie Murphy Ross

         YES! I went “omg his schlong is huge!”

      • mhleta

        Absolutely. The movie camera, too, but less so.

      • Rebecca Hatcher

         I’m thinking that was 100% intentional :)

      • rumcg66

        and that just so happens to be my favorite picture. Haha!

      • turtleemily

         I was going to comment on that. :)

      • Jennifer Ford

        My first thought was, “I see what you did there.”

    • DaveUWSNYC

      Looks like his crotch is being refilled instead of the gas tank…I kid because I LOVE.

      • Cole Robertson

         Or drained.

        • DaveUWSNYC

          Ha! either way good :-)

    • LondonMarriott

      Finally. Finally I can stop seeing him as a kid.  I don’t know why it took this long, but this spread nails it.  I call that the “DiCaprio Paradox.”

      *fans self*

    • Hell Yes, I Would!

      Well then. There went my afternoon…

    • ralish

      Sigh. Love.

    • Sobaika

      UNF UNF UNF.

      • MajorBedhead

         My reaction exactly. With an added flubbadubbubbah.

    • siriuslover

      oh god, more JGL. I don’t think my blood pressure can take another post this week. Those are some seriously sexy pics up there. 

    • Kerry McCombs

      I just swooned so hard I hurt myself.

      • DeborahJozayt

         /catch! Save! Hands you an umbrella and a sweet tea!

    • TropiCarla

      Good Lord! My crush intensifies …

      Keep it coming, JGL. I can’t wait for you and Bruce Willis in the same frame.

    • Ben Smith

      I want everything in these photos delivered to my chambers. Both clothes and model. Someone can make that happen, right?

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      Oh man oh man.  Gorge!

      These photos remind me of the scene in 10 Things I Hate About You when he and Michael were saying, “put her in your spank bank and move on”.  

      My love for JGL just blew past Love and landed in Obsession.

      • Derek_anny

         “There will be no plowing!”

    • Jenna621

      I can’t even think of anything witty or semi-interesting to say.  That first photo did me in.

    • Bjorn Shotwell

      Hottest editorial of him ever. I never noticed how nice his arms were…

    • Winter_White

      My first experience of JGL was the movie Mysterious Skin, in which he is sad and dark…so that’s how I thought of him.  A serious, moody guy — the guy in these photos.  Was so surprised when I saw him on some talk show a couple of years later, and he turned out to be smiley and light-hearted and charming.  A true free spirit.  

    • Rhonda Hanson

      love the james dean homage.

    • Ashleigh Boutelle

      NOTHING – absolutely nothing – beats a boy in white tee. That alone was enough to post this! 

      • Winter_White

        Never thought of it that way before but you’re right…a boy with beautiful arms, in a white tee…

      • emily


        You can’t see it but I hit ‘Like’ about 100 times. So true.

    • shirab

      Sorta too bad about the smoking in the video. Maybe it was just pretend smoking, but still, it infringes upon my enjoyment of the pretty.

      • call_me_schmeg

        yes, pretend smoking. must, must, MUST be pretend smoking. (if you say it hard enough, it’ll be true, right?) i don’t even want to google him and smoking for fear of what i’ll find…

      • Pants_are_a_must

        Nope he’s a smoker, yellow teeth and all. Which is why he still isn’t on my “oh god oh god if I only got to bang him ONCE before I die” list.

        • shirab

          Oh, that is so disappointing! Hmph.

      • formerlyAnon

         I can’t help it, I still find a cigarette an effective prop, in the right hands.

    • twocee

      He has officially moved to the top of my “stars I would leave my boyfriend for” list.  A-MAZ-ING.

    • Elena

      I love him (or used to), but after I realized he was a pretentious, hipster douche, I love him less. :(

      • Hell Yes, I Would!

        Really? You find it pretentious? I actually find him quite genuine. He actually really really enjoys what he does (the non-acting gig). And I respect that.

      • Pants_are_a_must

        You can always totally objectify him. Goodness knows he’s been saying pretty girls aren’t funny enough times for me to not take his opinions seriously.

    • mjude

      i will take him home & raise him.  love this kid

    • Sara__B

      Too bad he has only one facial expression, with wrinkled or smooth forehead options.

      • gillian holroyd

        there was a post a day or two ago where he was smiling and relaxed. So it *is* possible.

    • Kayceed

      A “sensitive face” – you read that all the time, when a writer is trying to describe someone, but I never see it – except for this one.

    • filmcricket

      I wish he had more than one facial expression, but he does look pretty awesome here. 

    • Karen Dickerson

      OHMYGAWD. My love for him grows as each day passes. 

    • MilaXX

      I just adore this kid. He even manages to add some life to the blue steel pose.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Good lord, the waistcoat shot. That man in waistcoats is like porn to me.

    • Lilithcat

      I don’t see the attraction.  He has a very mopey-looking face.

    • Araina23

      I really like this.  Every picture it feels like time has stopped to hang out with him.

    • MoHub

      He’s come a long way from being the most boring kid on the planet on Roseanne.

    • joything

      I find this more intensely, authentically Kerouac than the “On the Road” movie previews I’ve seen.

    • GTrain

      Just wow.

    • Kevin VanOrd

      He’s pretty, sure, but his single blank expression makes me think he’s a guy I’d bang once, but not call the next day. 

    • Gabriella M


      That’s all. /mirandapriestlyvoice

    • Myra C

      I love JGL and I love these photos but he has only one expression.  Still cute, though.

      • LJCdoc

        Well put, Myra. Why so worried, JGL?

    • Cortney Dean

      That might be his best guyditorial ever. Really great face.

    • leftcoastpickle

      I can’t look anymore, I just can’t, it’s like the lottery I’ll never win….sigh

    • Anplica Fiore

      YUM!  He’s growing into himself very well indeed!

    • SpcilK

      Please sir’s, may I have some more.

    • Vanja

      I like the photo’s, but JGL just doesn’t rock my boat. 
      I also hate the fact that male celebs are usually being photographed doing cool stuff, but the female celebs are being photographed in sexy clothes and poses, basically as just eye-candy (and not just in lads’ mags).  *rant over*

    • Qitkat

      That filling the tank with gas pose is quite suggestive.

    • tereliz

      Presence, yeah, and I love the recent editorials he’s been featured in, but I feel like he’s not giving a lot of range with this one. Although I have to admit it must be exhausting being “so HOTT right now.” 😉 The 3/4 bust shot with the YSL jacket, though… Humminah-humminah!

    • Spicytomato1

      He reminds me of Heath Ledger. A lot.

      • Winter_White

        Yes!  I’ve always thought that.

    • Pamela

      Even tho’ he’s the “It” boy of the moment, he deserves the attention b/c he’s turned into a pretty amazing actor.  Not to mention he’s grown into a real hottie.  He’s got a face that will only get better with age.  If only I could wait for him…

    • llou56

      and a long hose!

    • insertcleverbit

      Slam away.  He makes me swoon.

    • Brienne Calmer

      My Bob, that man is pretty.

    • lalahartma

      Omg, what is up with the forehead wrinkles?!

    • formerlyAnon

      In vest, feet up at desk in noir-esque pose.  That’s the only shot I love here. Not that the rest are awful. The pumping gas photo is pretty  nice, indeed.

      I think I just don’t admire him, personally, enough.

      The part of the video with him driving the snazzy car was working for me till he ostentatiously pushes up the sunglasses, highlighting the expensive watch – I know baby needs new shoes & all, but that tipped the balance between “oohhh, nice” and “Over-obviously Flogging Stuff.”

    • Judih1

      who is his guy and why he he getting so much publicity all of a sudden? He is cute but always seems to have the same facial expression

      • Sue_Asponte

        3rd Rock from Sun, 10 Things I Hate About You, 500 Days of Summer, Inception, Dark Knight Rises…

        • Rrroza

          just gets better and better. I finally caught DKR a couple weeks ago and JGL might be my favorite aspect of it. He really holds the screen.

    • Jecca2244

      JGL? i love you. please don’t tell my fiance. 

    • MzzPants

      You can come fill my gas tank, Mr. Levitt.

    • meowing

      “I can do a crinkly forehead.  See me do it throughout a whole magazine shoot.”  Sorry, guys, don’t find him intriguing at all.

    • another_laura

      Hilarious hose placement.

      • tinyredlocks

        LOL! I’m so glad I’m not the only one who thought that was funny!

    • thecitysleeps

      Ohhhhhh yes.  I love me a smart, good looking, charismatic man.

    • lizajane1776

      The gasoline shot! Truly LOL!

    • AtticWife

      Camel vest, feet propped up on the desk. 

      Loooooong sigh. He is delicious.

    • carpediva

      Oh, HELLZ yeah.  

    • AllForUSophia

      The Margiela waistcoat made me gasp!

    • quiltrx

      I have just discovered that I am only 10 years older than him.  I am not NEARLY the horny pervert old lady that I thought I was. :)

      And congrats, JGL, that third pic has knocked David Beckham clean off my desktop wallpaper!

    • Lisa

      Very nice layout!

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      He’s never been my man candy of choice, but this editorial might change my mind. Third photo down? WOW!

    • StelledelMare

      Ugh, so perfect

    • Suzie Vazquez

      I am tearing up he is so beautiful

    • Zippypie

      I love how the gas nozzle is going into his crotch – AHAHAHAHA!  Seriously, he is a doll.

    • unbornfawn

      I have always found his on-screen persona rather boyishly charming. Off screen, I could take him or leave him. However, lately he has really been bringing great style to his public image. It is such a contrast to the boy stars who strut out in what looks like their cleanest dirty shirt, and scruffy face, full of self-importance. I’m impressed with JGL, he’s transforming himself into a force to be reckoned with.

    • Janey

      So beautiful so much presence but too much sad face. JGL has such a beautiful smile or at least they could have had him smirk or something.

    • elzatelzabelz

      No complaints. At all.

    • Trisha26

      Stunning. He can wear anything. Timeless.

    • gillian holroyd

      The white t-shirt and khakis, rocking the post-WWII vet look. So glad that Inception woke me up to his adult appeal.

    • Sharon Iverly

      Dear lord, that’s good. 

    • Dina dV

      I actually remember him from a very short-lived show called “The Powers That Be,” and was fascinated by the little boy (he was about 9 at the time) with the old man face.  Then he was Tommy Solomon and now he was the teenager with the old man face (which is why he was perfect to play the old science officer trapped in a teenager’s body) and I thought he really had something compelling about his looks that wouldtransition well into adulthood.

      Boy was I underestimating that.  His face has not changed since he was nine, but as his age catches up with that face he just gets more and more gorgeous.

    • KathKo

      Well, talk about making the same face over and over again…

    • Cousin_Rose

      I’ll take the one with the car.

    • Rebecca


    • Rebecca

      Also, this is what Joey’s hair should have looked like on “Mad Men”.

    • Pterodactyl111

      Ugh so adorable.

    • Paige Boerman

      Please, don’t ever stop slamming me in the face with JGL.

    • ccm800

      I’d like to get slammed in the face by h…oh never mind. 

    • Esz

      Far out he takes a great picture – love every one of those shots.

    • lucasuk82

      I’d pump his gas.

    • Laylalola

      Nice clothes. JGL is such a winning guy whose face lights up in all sorts of expressions — I can’t imagine why they chose shots with only that one dour look.

    • bitterk

      He’s growing on me

    • amywinns

      Love him. But SO bored with the James Dean/vintage roadster guyditorials!! (TLo, you’re the ones who pointed out to me how incredibly overdone it is… surprised no further comment here.) So I guess that’s why I’m overly enthusiastic about the vest/desk shot? The fashion isn’t unique, but it’s such a refreshing, crisp contrast to the rest of the shots and so thoughtfully styled.  

    • aristida_girl

      man, I never got him until last night on SNL and again here..I always thought he was too young but I guess he got all growed up…cute :)

    • anchovymeow

      Needs more forehead wrinkles.

    • Erin

      Holy cats.  Treat the dorky looking boys nicely, girls: some of them grow up to look like this.

    • Lynn Landry

      I like the photo with the hose coming out to look like is penis. Gotta hand it to that photo editor for that original thought.
